Noodle Box, The1867 W 4th Ave, Vancouver
Mediocre x 100
Submitted Tuesday, March 24, 2009 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

Tried the spicy peanut noodles and teriyaki udon noodles. The spicy peanut was really bland, and worth probably half the price I paid. When I ordered it with tofu, they explained that there was a shrimp paste in the sauce that they "can't remove". Obviously, they must use some kind of pre-made sauce. The teriyaki noodles were a little better, but they gave us a small proportion. No way I'm returning here any time soon!

Vij's1480 West 11th Avenue, Vancouver
pretty good!
Submitted Friday, March 6, 2009 - 9:45pm [Dine in]

Went to Vij's tonight for the first time in a part of four. We arrived twenty minutes after they opened and had to wait about 50 minutes (yikes!). We ordered two appetizers- the prawns and the portabello mushroom. Very tasty. In terms of entrees, my lamb popsicles were excellent, the chicken breast was exceptional, the duck wasn't that great, and the candied yam curry was also quite good, though it tasted more like Thai than Indian food. Our total price came to 150, which I thought was pretty good. My gripe was that it was very noisy inside. All in all, a nice dining experience. I will come back some day.

Secret Garden Tea Room, The5559 West Boulevard, Vancouver
tasty food
Submitted Monday, March 2, 2009 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

I came in today to grab some sweets to take away. They were very tasty, but still overpriced in my opinion. I wouldn't have minded sitting down, but there were loud children everywhere and it seemed very hectic. Maybe it's quieter during school hours. Anyway, probably won't ever got there to sit down for an expensive tea, but if I have a few bucks to spend I may return for the little cakes and stuff.

Only order the crepes
Submitted Sunday, March 1, 2009 - 3:19pm [Dine in]

I went here for breakfast a few days ago and requested two sunny side up eggs with my strawberry crepe. The cook agreed and charged me 2 dollars PER egg. Ridiculous, but I was craving eggs. Anyway, the crepe was really good, but I'm no expert on crepes and am easily pleased. The "sunny side up" eggs on the other hand, let me tell you, were awful. Unrecognizable. I don't know what he did but they seemed half scrambled whites with the yokes covered in raw whites. Absolutely the most awful eggs I've ever encountered.

In terms of ambiance, I think it appears really amateurish. The counter is mostly empty and they have a huge back-kitchen that's really messy (you have to walk through to get to the bathroom). The complimentary water jug and cups always seem a bit dirty too. I don't really like the atmosphere. Ultimately, if I ever go here again I'll only order crepes and get them to go.

Legendary Noodle4191 Main Street, Vancouver
genuine Chinese food
Submitted Friday, November 7, 2008 - 9:22pm [Dine in]

Let me start this off by saying that my favorite food is northern Chinese cuisine and I grew up in China but the only Chinese restaurant I will ever willingly eat in in Vancouver is Legendary Noodle. It actually reminds me of eating in hole in the wall restaurants in China. All the vegetarian dishes I've had there are pretty good. Fried pea sprouts with garlic are a simple favorite, and the vegetarian noodles in soup always hits the spot. And best of all, it's cheap! I like the ambiance- it's pretty quiet, small. Come here for an authentic Chinese dining experience.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Inconsistent
Submitted Friday, November 7, 2008 - 9:16pm [Dine in]

I really enjoy the food at Afghan Horsemen, but I think it is completely overpriced. I order the same thing whenever I get take out or eat there, but I find that the amount of food varies to an unacceptable degree. Sometimes I get a good amount of spinach and cauliflower with my chicken kebab, and sometimes I get what seems like two teaspoons. Though I enjoy the food, for the price they ask, I would expect serving amounts to remain the same every time you order. In terms of ambiance, I found it much too noisy and I got tired of the loud belly dancing music after the first five minutes, but that's a matter of taste.
