Thai House Royale Restaurant4600 Kingsway, #115, Burnaby
It's not horrible.
Submitted Tuesday, March 16, 2010 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

Came here last week with a friend, got a pad thai and vegetarian lettuce wrap. It was pretty slow cause it was mid afternoon.. around 4 ish? So there weren't many people. Service was brief, but came when I gave them a bit of eye contact.

Each dish was 11.95 and generously portioned. We shared the dishes but still had like almost half to take home. The pad thai came with pretty large sized shrimp. The lettuce wrap tastes more authentic than the one at Green Basil, and tastes better too cause the tofu that is used at Green Basil is entirely deep fried.

The service here was fine, like I said, very few customers. It was weird though, they constantly topped off our waters but didn't say a single word to us. And the restaurant is run by Chinese people.

The place isn't over decorated, it's okay, nothing special.

I'll come back maybe, maybe not. Wouldn't recommend or bash the restaurant.

La Bretagne Creperie795 Jervis Street, Vancouver
Quality Crepes
Submitted Friday, March 12, 2010 - 9:56am [Dine in]

Came by three days ago for a quick crepe with the bf. I've been meaning to try it out as I go past out sometimes and by recommendation from a coworker.

The place is kind of.. classy? fancy? unsure.. for a crepe place. It's around the corner from a Starbucks and off Robson, so it's a bit more quiet. They play some soft music in the background, nicely lit place. I think it would look better if the server had a more formal attire instead of the store t-shirt, it would complete the look of the place better. It's fairly clean, but do check your utensils before using cause they just have them set out already all day until someone uses them.

Reason why I gave a two for service was because the server had a very snooty attitude, like she's too good to serve me? But she was polite I guess. No smiles eiither. Just did not like her attitude. And I had to wait to order.. she kept going back to all the other tables to check, again and again, but not ours. Don't know what her problem is.

The menu is a bit pricier than Cafe Crepe, but I think it's worth it. The crepes range from 5-15 dollars, and I think the savoury crepes seem to be larger in size. They also have a few specialty ones, which I'll try the next time I go. They also offer wines and beers here.

We ordered sweet crepes, one is the Belgian chocolate with strawberries and another apple and cinnamon (no alcohol, no time). The crepe itself tastes much better than the one at Cafe Crepe, the chocolate was absolutely delicious, and fresh strawberries. The cinnamon and apple was okay, but I think the moistness from the apples tampered with the overall taste. Both dishes were presented nicely as well. You can definitely taste the difference that quality makes.

Anyways, I'll be back to try some of their other items. If you have an hour to spare and want a high quality crepe, La Bretagne is definitely recommended.

Not the best, but not horrible either.
Submitted Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 5:22pm [Dine in]

Came here after on a Saturday night during the Olympics. The food was okay, liked the look of the place, normally priced food (around 10-17 dollars per entree), decent portion size, and bad service.

Everyone who works here are Chinese and constantly speak Cantonese. Plus everytime someone comes in that looks of Asian descent they seem to try and speak Cantonese to them too. They left the TV on and we stayed a bit longer (10:30 ish) chatting, all the while the waitress was giving my boyfriend dirty looks (no, not the sexual kind).

The restaurant looks clean, liked the decor, the colours. No chipped plates or cups in sight. Did not like the fact that we were so close to another table though.. we were sitting next to some extremely Chinese people.

We were eating with another couple, they ordered a fresh fruit fried rice or something, and what looked like peppered beef or chicken. They said it was decent, nothing to brag about. The boyfriend had a yellow curry with a side of rice, said it was just okay. I had the phak vegetable tom yum soup.. which was okay. It just had lots of random vegetable pieces floating around in it (a snowpea, a tomato, cabbage, etc). I also had the phak vegetable lettuce wrap. I'm used to the Chinese version of this.. so it's different for me. First time I ordered a "Thai" lettuce wrap, I liked it. Tasted good, ingredients looked fresh. I would order it again since the lettuce wrap normally doesn't have a vegetarian option to it, nice change.

Anyways, I might come back for a lunch, seeing their lunch special. I wouldn't especially recommend it, but it's not horrid either.

Cupcakes on Thurlow797 Thurlow St, Vancouver
Would you like some diabetes in the form of a cupcake?
Submitted Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 6:30pm [Dine in]

I love to bake and was super excited to try my cupcake from here. Honestly, it's just mediocre for me. The only plus for the actual cupcakes here is the fluffiness of the cake part. There is way too much icing on the cupcake and way too much sugar. Each time I have a whole cupcake here I have a really bad sugar rush and get incredibly hyper.

The store is really.. awfully pink, but it's cute? For 3 something per cupcake, I would rather go down to Granville Island's market place and get a more special dessert.

Unexpected interior.
Submitted Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 6:25pm [Dine in]

Showed up at this place a couple of weeks ago with a friend. As soon as I went in, I thought maybe I was in the wrong place? The inside is properly lighted, and by night they put on the candles. They have a self serve water station and the walls have painted trees and fences, really loved it.

I had the spinach and mushroom fillo and my friend had the philly steak one. She liked hers, as did I, but I had a problem with the actual fillo part. It was EXTREMELY salty for some odd reason, and I had to drink like 2 cups of water. I dunno if it was just that day or maybe they're suppose to taste like that? The philly steak one also tasted incredibly salty, the flaky part. That's why I gave it only a 3. But the ingredients were definitely fresh. The salad was a nice touch, and the best part of my plate were the roasted potatoes and yams. They were PERFECT, like they were meant to be at the highest class restaurant. YUMM. I was too full to have any dessert, but they looked really good.

Each of our dishes were about 10 something, totally worth it. I wouldn't so much as come back for the fillo, seeing how salty it is, but those roasted veggies are oh so good. And might go back to try the desserts.

Yummy food, but the ambiance is incredibly weird. But totally not the point.
Submitted Thursday, February 25, 2010 - 6:12pm [Dine in]

Came here after seeing all the reviews. Only got take out, which was a veggie fried rice and a small order of their famous chicken wings. It was a week night, but at least half their tables were filled which is odd, especially with their location. They greeted right when we came in.. and gave us menus.

The service was okay, the lady pointed out things that she could turn into a vegetarian dish for me. My boyfriend tried to convince me to go un-vegetarian for their chicken wings cause they're so good. It smelled amazing though. I got the fried rice and though it's a veggie one, it was still really really good (not just a bland taste like many other restaurants).

The place is really oddly decorated, like they have no idea what they're doing. Though it's a Cambodian and Vietnamese restaurant, everyone seemed to be speaking in Cantonese. Not much of a surprise I guess.

Our order came to about 20 dollars with a tip. I will definitely be back.

Chill Restaurant5507 Kingsway, Burnaby
My new sit in bubbletea hangout place!
Submitted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 5:38am [Dine in]

Finally, a great place to sit in for bubbletea and food! This place will now be the new hangout spot for that. I am incredibly glad I came here to try this place.

To start off, the place seemed to be pretty busy already when we came in at about 9pm on a Friday night, especially since it's new. The server was super nice, came to greet me and asked how many were in my party and even asked me which area I would prefer to sit in and gave me an estimate wait time. She came back as soon as she cleared the table and set me up with menus, and let me know I'll be getting another server for the rest of the night to help me out. Our server gave us enough time to order and were very patient even though we took awhile. Very attentive and actually smiles!

I ordered the usual taro milk tea (no pearls) and a tofu hot pot. Friends ordered a shrimp and pineapple appy, calamari (no dipping sauce though), green apple calpis slush, and matcha ice cream with pearls. My order came without rice, but the server asked me if I wanted it afterwards, very nice (didn't charge me extra for it either). I really liked my bubbletea, so did my friends. They said their food was good, but the pineapples didn't really go well with the shrimp, and they found their appy small portioned. But I thought all our drinks were great.

The server came back a couple of times to check on us, not in an interruptive way though. The tofu pot was a deal, only 7 bucks and I found it pretty good and nicely presented too. The bubbleteas are at the same price of Estea (4-5 dollars) but were well worth it.

The entire place looks great. It's dimly lighted, lots of red, modern, clean, sleek, very comfy seats. They have bigger tables for bigger parties. They didn't rush us at all and the rest of the staff were very friendly as well. I will DEFINITELY be back. They have evaluations that you can do when they give you your bill. The only thing I would ask to be changed is that they expand a bit more on the bubbletea menu, add a couple of specials instead of the usual drinks (they do have alcoholic bubbletea though!).

Thanks Chill, you put Estea and their incredibly terrible service to shame! Recommended for sure!

Domo Sushi1160 Melville Street, Vancouver
Worst sushi I've ever had.
Submitted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 5:10am [Dine in]

I work in the area and was looking for a regular lunch spot. As I've tried the Sushi Go at Bute already I thought I would give Domo's a try. Boy was that a bad decision.

I came into the place, and was greeted by a Chinese lady.. trying to speak in Japanese. She asked me if I wanted take out or sit in, and I said for take out. She passed me a menu and proceeded to talk to the chef in Cantonese really loudly and was trying to train this new employee. I speak Cantonese as well.. and the lady was extremely irritable and wasn't treating the new employee very nicely to start off with. I just felt bad for the new woman about to start working at Domo's.

The food came out pretty quickly, I'll give them that. Cause no one else was in the store anyways. They seem to do mostly take out. The rolls are about 2.50 and up, but even at that price, the value is only mediocre cause the sushi tasted so bad.

I ordered the usual yam tempura roll and avocado roll. Okay. Here it goes. Worst sushi ever. The rice was too moist and mushy, and too little of it coating the outside of the sushi. It was also inconsistently seasoned, so that after I ate one piece the next piece would taste like it had a lot of vinegar in it. The avocados they used are too ripe.. like they've been there for a couple of days. Oh god, the yam tempura roll was awful. The yam itself was overcooked, and there was no batter before they deepfried it. It was just like, sliced and dumped in oil so it's this soaked oily thin layer of stuff. It was just bad. And the portions were very small. I don't know if it's an off day, but that was horrible. I ended up visiting my other work place and going to Momo Sushi on Bidwell to get a new sushi order.

The store itself looked kind of clean. Kind of sketchy. The washroom is like.. also their storage room or something.

Not recommended at all and will not return.

One of my usuals.
Submitted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 4:55am [Dine in]

I've been here numerous times with my boyfriend and friends. He's more like a carnivore and I'm a vegetarian. The menu has a lot of choices for vegetarians as well as dishes with meat, so definitely nice for me.

There's not usually a line up at the place so there's no need to make reservations. The staff here are very friendly, and they always remember to come refill waters and ask about the food. The food is decent, but like some of the other reviews, I found it a bit salty. My boyfriend got this deep fried shrimp dish that he really enjoyed. Usually the fried rice (any is good) is really good, at times they may be a bit heavy with the garlic. The tofu is really delicious, it had a nice mixture of spices and it was deep fried, but not to the point that it was dripping with oil. I've tried their veggie soup.. which was a little bland for me. But their sweet and sour soup is yummy and they have a vegetarian alternative! Their portions are pretty big, so don't order big soups unless you're sharing with a few people, same with the rest of the dishes (includes appetizers). Sweet and sour tofu is good too, not as good as the other one with garlic though. The masala vegetarian egg noodles are yummy, but a bit oily. But it's still really good.

The place itself is clean, very simple. Nothing fancy with the ambiance, but that's okay. I like their food. Would definitely go back. Good value too. Must come back for a lunch, they have a great deal for 6 bucks that includes food and drink!

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
19th Birthday.
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 2:33pm [Dine in]

Came here last night for my 19th birthday with reservations for 24 people.. and here's how it went down.

Okay, each dish was from about 14-20 dollars, with shared platters for about 35 bucks between two people (there was a LOT of food for those platters). Almost everyone really liked their food and was super filling (huge portions). It was understandable that the food took a little while with the amount of people we had and how busy the restaurant was, but it was just bad that it took an hour for MY food to arrive (I ordered in the first batch or orders.. and people were already halfway through their food before I got mine).

I had a few iffy's with the vegetarian dishes, and the reason why I only gave the food a 3 was because I just disliked my dish a lot. Honestly, everyone elses food looked great and smelled great too.. I must have ordered the wrong thing. I got the dolmah and veggies plate. It was a couple of lumps of stuff on my plate. Overcooked spinach, overcooked cauliflower, overcooked eggplant, undercooked half a potato, and the dolmah (wrap with rice in it, about half the size of my fist). It was bland and gross, and took one hour for them to get it to me. So I was pissed. Everyone else's dishes looked amazing though. Sigh.

The place looked great, outside doesn't look like much but the inside looks very nicely decorated, with dimmed lights and paintings. What kinda ruined it was the tv right above our table.. should take it out. There was live belly dancing which was pretty cool. They should turn down the music a bit though.

I think the service here is just incredible. The owner of the store is very friendly, and the server we had remembered my name, and wished me a happy birthday as well. He was very patient with my party even though 1/3 of my guests came 45 mins late. Before I left and went up to the register to pay, the server asked me how old I was turning, which is 19. He was shocked that I had never had a drink before, and so insisted on getting me my first shot. He made me an "Afghan" shot, which is like 2 and a half shots in one. Needless to say, it was hilarious and I had a great time despite my yucky food.

I'll come back to try some of their other dishes, I probably just ordered the wrong thing. Had an amazing night and would recommend it for both just to have dinner or have a party.

Good place for lunch everytime.
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 2:19pm [Dine in]

I've been here time after time with my family and friends whenever I go to Richmond for lunch or something. The place, I would have to say, has above average food compared to some of the other Hong Kong style cafes.

Like usual, the service is much like other Chinese restaurants. Very brief but efficient, don't have to wait for long to get your order or to come take your order. They come by routinely to refill drinks. And the people are more nice than some of the other Chinese restaurants too.. I noticed sometimes when I go to HK style cafes they have like hostile service or something. So no complaints about that here.

I like the food here, but I mainly gave it a 4 because of the bakery. It has some delicious Chinese pastries (not like your average Maxim or Pinehouse bakery standards) so definitely give it a try. The green bean one is deelish. The lunch menus are good, some variety and the food, like I said, is above your average HK cafes. I haven't had anything bad from here.

The lunch menu is definitely a good value, it's inexpensive with large portions and decent quality (for the price you pay) and also get a drink. Best of all, they give you one free refill! No other place will do that (not that I know of). I have yet to come here for dinner, but lunch is always a good value here.

The look of the place can definitely get an upgrade, but it's not to the point where it just looks like a dump, no worries. But with a bit of a touch up, it would be great. Although the ambiance doesn't really affect much for me, cause I'll definitely be back!

Delicious spicy food.
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 10:24pm [Dine in]

I know the menu says fine dining.. but it's not really? And it also says it's fusion food.. but it's not really that either. There's like 2 dishes that are "fusion". Other than that, it was decent. Came here for dinner though, not lunch. Will try the lunch special soon.

Came here with a couple of friends. We had the vegetable samosas to start, which were good. They were kind of small I think and took a long time for some reason. Friends ordered the butter chicken, another.. curry with chicken in it, the chicken biryani, and vegetable biryani. Side orders of plain naan and the bread basket which came with garlic naan, plain naan, and lechhedar parantha. All really good. Liked the butter chicken curry (just the curry sauce, I'm a vegetarian). Whatever curry with chicken it was, it had a little bit of a sweet taste to it? Also really good. Didn't like the chicken biryani so much, found it a little dry. But I loved my vegetable biryani, delicious. Medium spicy, with lots of veggies and big portion. None of us could finish our food, had to take it home. For dessert, we had the ras malai whi is an Indian cheese patty in a pistachio and almond sauce. First time we had Indian dessert, the texture is a little odd (kinda like soaked bread?) but flavour is great.

The waiter/chef was really nice, and gave us recommendations. Noticed a lot of people ordering take out. The dishes were reasonably priced (most entrees range from 10-13 dollars).

The restaurant can definitely use a better make over, the place is all ORANGE. Well I guess you can't miss it whenever you go past it. But it could use some more authentic decor besides the framed pictures.

I will definitely try the lunch special that everyone raves about. Recommended place for Indian food.

Subs and sandwiches with quality in mind.
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 10:07pm [Dine in]

Been here several times, haven't had bad experiences. The people who work here are friendly, usually the same staff. They're usually busy during lunchtime.

I've had the vegetarian sub and sandwich. The sandwich one was on foccacia bread.. or whatever it's called. This one was definitely more tasty than the sub version, but is much smaller in portion size. The pesto mayo in it is really good. I got the italian sub for my boyfriend once. He said it was really bland, so I'm not too sure, that's why I only gave it a 3.

The owner is super friendly, I accidentally walked into the store when it was closed for renovations and he made me the sandwich anyways and thanked me for coming.

I gave it a 4 for value cause they definitely put an effort into the quality of the foods. Their veggies are fresh and the bread is really good too. No worries about it being a day old or whatever. And it's cheaper than your local Subway.

Recommended. I'll be back for another sub, it serves as both lunch and dinner, hahaha.

I've been here a couple of times, mainly because I live in the area and my cousin works here. They're drinks are just okay.. nothing special. Some of their more "special" drinks they just add tapioca to the bottom and stuff like that. Doesn't taste that great though.

They're decently priced for a sit in bubble tea place. Haven't tried their food yet.

The place is very..green. With stick on Ikea flowers on the walls for decorations. I think the place could definitely use some changes in their decor.

I gave it a 4 for service cause my cousin was serving us the last couple of times we've been here. But if you don't speak Cantonese or Mandarin, you may have a bit of a language barrier here.

Clean and less msg!
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 9:56pm [Dine in]

Dropped by on a rainy weekday during midafternoon about 3. They had about 7 or 8 customers, with just one waitress, typical. The place is definitely more clean than your usual pho joint, and I love how they don't leave the chopsticks and spoons out for you to get yourself like a lot of other places, which is why I gave it a 4 for ambiance. But they play an odd combination of music.. from classical they switch it up to vietnamese music?

The lady who worked there seemed nice.. but it was just her, so she was constantly on her feet. Seemed like everytime she had something to say, she had to yell across the room in Vietnamese. Not much else to say. Oh, and my food came 5 mins after I ordered, which was nice.

I had the in season veggies with noodles in soup. Okay, by in season they meant one kind of vegetable (some kind of choy, looks kinda like bok choy) and carrots. That's it. But the soup base is above average.. I did find it a little salty though, not as in msg or too much salt, but like over seasoned? Maybe my soup was at the bottom of the pot and they didn't stir it as they served it out to customers or something. And they gave me more than enough noodles. For once I didn't drink cups and cups of water after having pho!

My noodles were 6.75, there are no choices for larges or smalls unfortunately. But it's a decent price for the amount and quality I got. Not too bad for a pho joint.

Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 9:47pm [Dine in]

Stopped by last week with a friend to try this place, since it's around the corner from my place. Always seems to be busy when I walk by, and for good reason.

This place advertises that it gives free bubbletea after 6 with an order of food. Honestly, it's just a hook. They normally have.. I think, two different choices for you- and don't pick the milk tea one. The milk tea is definitely powdered, I had the mango one last time, yuck. But other than that, I had a great time.

They have a limited menu, which is fine for me. Noodles take up almost the entire menu, but I chose to order one of the new items, kimchi and tofu hotpot, my friend ordered the satay beef with rice noodles. Mine was pretty good, and they give you a choice of either udon, rice, or rice noodle as your side dish. In the hotpot was kimchi, tofu, assorted veggies, and vermicelli. Yum, very good for the price you pay. And it's served with a lighted mini fire under the pot. My friend said hers was really good, but a little too much bean sprouts for her.

I like how they decorated the place, simple, lots of room to walk by people without having to listen to others' conversations. Not a fan of their music though. Loved the service, although they don't speak English very well. The server greeted me promptly, got me a seat and menu, and gave me time to pick. She'll notice when I'm ready and put my menu down, and gave me a couple of recommendations too. Without asking, she came by to refill water and even noticed when my water was a little low in my mini hotpot! Superb, no hovering servers!

My entire meal was only 8 bucks, and I think my friend's was 7. I will definitely be back, and I totally see why this place is usually full at night.

They also have Wifi if you need it.

Definitely above average bubbletea, but absolute crap service.
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 9:35pm [Dine in]

Came here for the second time. I have a problem with this place, I'm torn about coming here for good bubbletea, but the people who work here makes me not want to go. Both times I went, there was just utterly terrible service.. and most of the servers don't understand half of what you're saying, and they screw up your orders too. And some of the girls dress.. inappropriately for work.

There's a limit of 2 hour seating. The drinks and food take a long time to arrive. And last time my bf's friend ordered his drink, they messed it up as a to go order, and asked all his friends to leave because you cannot drink a to go drink in the store. Wtf?! They messed up my friend's order of chicken with noodles, and took forever for the soya pudding with pearls.. which tasted so bland.

Why did I give them only a 3 for food? They're drinks are great, definitely above your normal Bubble World or Little Tea House, but the actual food isn't that great.

The atmosphere of the place is very cool, nice vibe. Really like it. Comfy chairs and stuff, clean, modern. Good hangout place with friends. Too bad there's a time limit.

I probably won't be back anytime soon, especially since I heard that Chill is better. We'll see.

An okay place.. but there's so many more places to eat, so why here?
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 9:24pm [Dine in]

Okay, I came here a couple months back for a double date. It was fairly crowded when we went.. I think it was a weekend night so good thing we made reservations. But even with reservations, we got crap seats right next to the big metal things on the lower floor. I wasn't happy about that.

The waiter that served us wasn't happy to be there and wasn't helpful either. Didn't give us enough time to order.

It's priced somewhat like Milestones or Joey's or something, but I feel that it's better food than say Earls or Milestones or those chains of restaurants. I recall most of us got pasta, mine was a cheese something.. it wasn't too bad, good portion, nothing special though. I do remember that one of us got something with chicken in it, and they said it tasted rubbery or something. So yeah. Didn't bother with desserts or appies, didn't like the place much.

The only real thing they've got going for them is the location, and a view if you're lucky enough to sit by the windows.

It's a big place, maybe it's good for parties and drinks?

Nice place to go for bigger groups.
Submitted Wednesday, January 27, 2010 - 11:58pm [Dine in]

Usually whenever I come here it's with a larger group of friends. The place is pretty clean and they normally give us a room to ourselves that looks over Kingsway area, which I really like.

Normally we do AYCE whenever we come here, and it's alright. One of my friends is a vegetarian, as am I. The food is okay, not great though. I like their agedashi tofu. The tempura is good too. They don't try to slice the sashimi too thin I've noticed.. but I have no idea how it tastes. I have a feeling their miso soup has a lot of msg.. cause I always chug water after I drink it. Also their salad.. don't bother. It's like prepackaged salad mix dumped in there with a sauce on top, though I do like the sauce a fair bit.

The service really depends on how busy the place is. We normally don't have a problem with it, sometimes you may need to ask the waiter/waitress to refill tea or water, but no biggie.

It's affordable and has alright sushi. I'll go back, it's better than some overpriced AYCE places.

I remember eating here awhile back. Though the place was clean with prompt service, the food was incredibly disgusting for me. Possibly it was an off day.. or I just ordered the wrong foods. But my brother loves to eat here for some reason.

I recall ordering the chicken cutlet with some kind of sauce with a side of spaghetti. The chicken was so overcooked that when I poked at it, it kinda started to just break apart. And the spaghetti was also extremely overcooked to the point where if I tried to pick it up with my fork, it would just break in half. I was downright angry with the quality of food they dished out and refused to eat it.. so I ended up going home to eat instead.

I would not come back here.
