Stepho's Greek Taverna1124 Davie St, Vancouver
Consistent quality with great value and service
Submitted Monday, January 30, 2012 - 9:51pm [Take-out]

I have been getting take out from here for years. The quality remains consistently good, and you know exactly what you are getting with no surprises and no skimping of portions. The prices are very reasonable. It is very good value for your money. The staff are very friendly and efficient as well, although they are extremely busy!
Why stand in line when you can phone ahead and get take out?

Pita Pit, The1805 Rosser Ave, #3, Burnaby
Worst customer service ever
Submitted Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 4:29pm [Take-out]

I cannot comment on the food or the value as I was never served.

I can only comment on the service, or more accurately the lack of customer service.

I arrived at the location and walked in for the first time ever.

I was noticed, but not acknowledged.

I had no idea where to stand or wait or what the procedure was as there was no signage and the staff member did not say anything to me.

I was the only person waiting to be served.

I finally figured that the procedure must be like Subway or Quiznos, where you order your food and then pay for it, so I stood where she was making the food for the two other people in the store.

Meanwhile, after about 5 minutes, 1 more person walked in, and then 2 more a couple minutes after that.

The staff member finally was finishing up making the pitas for the 2 people. She told me to go over to the cash to pay first as she rudely walked over to serve the other three people who walked in after me.

Unbelievably bad service!

I left, infuriated.

What a waste of time.

Hing Loong Restaurant4909 Kingsway, Burnaby
Recommended, good quality, low prices
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 2:34pm [Dine in]

Re-discovered the Hing Loong Chinese restaurant recently.

It has been in this location at Kingsway and Nelson for a long time and it is family run.

We used to eat in all the time several years ago, prices were cheap, staff was friendly, and meals were of good quality. We ate there so much we got tired of it and started going to other places including Mr Ho's when it returned to Kingsway in Burnaby.

After unsatisfying meals from Mr Ho's in the last year (i.e. vegetables that smelled/tasted kind of rotten in our dishes) we re-discovered Hing Loong.

Hing Loong, pricewise, is comparatively cheap, and there are large portions.

The food is fresh, the vegetables are abundant and crispy, there is lots of meat in the meat dishes. Give them a try.

We've been getting take-out, and just over $13 gets us two huge meals which we share and is way more than enough for two hungry adults.

Thai House Royale Restaurant4600 Kingsway, #115, Burnaby
Recommended
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 2:03pm [Dine in]

We go to this Thai House using the Entertainment book coupon and always find our meals of good quality, generous enough portions, and consistent.

There are always lots of veggies, lots of shrimp, and the dishes are a good size and served promptly.

I guess we're always there early enough that we don't fight any crowds.

I did order take-out one time of our regular dishes, and the prices without a coupon were excessive for us. So no more take out, and stick to using coupons and we're happy.

Anducci's6011 Hastings St., Burnaby
Won't be back to the Anducci's 6011 E Hastings
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 1:52pm [Dine in]

First visit, we were told wait was fifteen minutes when in actual fact the two of us waited for over an hour. When we were finally seated, we realized others arriving after us had been offered the opportunity to sit at the bar stools, order their meals, and even be moved to tables before us.

When we received our credit card bill in the mail we discovered the restaurant had charged us three times for our bill. We had to phone the credit card company, who had to launch an investigation on the restaurant in order to reverse the extra charges.

Second visit, the four of us arrived early and were seated right away.
Two of our orders were screwed up, wrong sauces on our pasta. This is even though we were very clear on our orders and the server repeated them. We had to wait for replacement meals and the manager said don't worry we'll take care of this.

There were no deductions on our bill.

Of note, our primavera dishes were severely lacking in vegetables. They consisted of a plate of overcooked pasta with little sauce and barren in the vegetable department.

The chicken in the pasta tasted horrible, like it had been cooked in a pot with sausage, and it was dry and barely edible.

Be warned, there are no sound buffers in this restaurant. It is a wide open floor with tables and chairs. If the restaurant is anywhere near capacity expect to not hear each other and to go home with ringing ears and possible hearing damage. I'm serious.

They hire servers who are young girls that look good in tight black dresses. If you want eye candy only, then this is your restaurant.

Their pasta prices are also excessive. $15.95 to $17.95 or more for a plate of overcooked pasta with very little sauce or extras that you are paying a premium for.

X-Site Grill and Bistro4625 Hastings St., Burnaby
Great deals at X-Site Grill
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 1:39pm [Dine in]

One of our favourite meals is the Chicken Souvlakia lunch special. $4.95 for a huge skewer of chicken, plus salad, pita bread, rice, and potatoes.

Phone ahead before 4 p.m. and make it an early dinner for take-out.

Or, for dinner, the blackened salmon or chicken are recommended for $9.95.

As somebody mentioned, use the entertainment book coupon and a meal for two is dirt cheap at only $9.95 plus taxes/tip.

Monday through Thursday there are eat-in only dinner specials for $4.95, requiring one drink purchase per customer. If my memory serves correctly, Monday is burgers, Tuesday is steak, Wednesday is chicken souvlakia, and Thursday is salmon. Unlike most restaurants, the drinks are actually cheap at $1.50 for a non-alcoholic variety.

My only complaint is that the meals are carbohydrate heavy. I would prefer some added vegetables, other than just the salad.

We have never eaten in for lunch, so can't comment on slow lunchtime service.

Ramies Restaurant4287 Kingsway, #9, Burnaby
Ramies is highly recommended
Submitted Sunday, July 1, 2007 - 1:23pm [Dine in]

My family have become regulars at this restaurant over the years both for eat in and for take out.

Food is of good quality and in generous size portions and the quality is consistent. Staff are friendly.

Favourite dishes of ours are the salmon souvlakia or the salmon steak, the seafood combo on a skewer, the lamb dinner or souvlakia, and the chicken dishes. All dishes come with greek salad, pita, tzatziki, rice, roast potatoes, and vegetables.

Dinner dishes mentioned above are mostly $13.95.
Same size dish at lunchtime, before 3 p.m., is $9.95 or less.

They are very compliant and don't charge extra for most substitutions.

Only complaint with the salmon is that there are often bones to pick out.

Give Ramie's a try and they will likely become a favourite restaurant of yours too.

They are not in the entertainment book any longer, but check the Burnaby local papers and mailers for extra savings coupons.

Nakornthai401 West Broadway, Vancouver
Nakornthai - recommended
Submitted Saturday, June 30, 2007 - 8:19pm [Dine in]

We really like Nakornthai, especially for lunch specials for take-out.
Although, we have eaten in several times before.

Phone ahead for take-out and the food is ready & packed for you when you arrive.

It is a good clean family owned and run restaurant.

Good prices, generous portions, healthy food, consistent quality, friendly staff.
