Great All You Can Eat Ribs
Submitted Tuesday, September 18, 2012 - 5:45pm [Dine in]

A friend of mine has had a craving for ribs and saw this place advertised in a local Vancouver mail-out so we decided to give the place a try for lunch. She had called ahead and was told that yes, the All You Can Eat ribs is on during lunch as well as dinner. The first time we tried to visit this place, they were having problems with their electrical system, so had to go for lunch somewhere else. But today, we stopped in at noon and found that we were the only people there. We were served promptly by the single young female server and noticed one male in the kitchen, and we ordered the ribs special and a soda each. The meals came with a small green salad (which was just a regular green tossed salad), spaghettini with a tomato sauce, a large piece of garlic bread and baby back ribs. The ribs were absolutely great! The meat fell off the bone with just a touch of a knife and fork. and the sauce was a little bit spicy and really tasty. On the first plate, we each had two large sections of ribs and once we finished the first part of the meal, we had two more large sections of ribs each. All the ribs had a good amount of sauce on them, they were juicy with lots of meat on the ribs and above all were very tasty. I will definitely go back whether for the Tuesday special or any of the other specials they have.

Great lemongrass burger
Submitted Sunday, July 17, 2011 - 8:18am [Dine in]

Went there on a rainy Saturday for lunch and I have to say I was very glad that I was able to find this place. The restaurant is just a little place, a doorway amongst many along this stretch. The cook was out front of the door and after we spoke I decided to give it a try. The place is like any other fast food place, but the meal was really good for the value ($7), including a side of yam fries and a large soft drink. The lemongrass chicken burger was made upon ordering and was hot and fresh. I enjoyed the yam fries first and turned my attention to the burger and was not disappointed. The burger had a few pieces of grilled chicken that had obviously been marinated in a lemongrass mixture. It also had a spicy Korean salad mix with a spicy mayo that made the whole burger really juicy. I let the cook know how happy I was and indicated that I would be back to try some of the other meals and snacks. All in all a great lunch on a rainy afternoon!

Birthday dinner
Submitted Friday, May 20, 2011 - 10:17pm [Dine in]

Had my birthday dinner there tonight and was very pleased with the food and pleasantly impressed with the service. I had the roast lamb, which was cooked very nicely with a good amount of sauce and seasoning. The meat literally fell off the bones, and didn't require the steak knife that was brought out with my dinner. My friends also complimented their food (two had the lamb souvlaki and one had the calamari dinner) and each said their meals were very good. The entrees were extemely filling (they all came with rice, roast potatoes, Greek salad, vegetables and Greek pita bread) and all of us were glad that we had not ordered appetizers as it would have been too much food. The waitress who attended to our table was absolutely incredible. We found her to be attentive, without being too intrusive. Even though she seemed to be very young, I would not be shocked to find her working in a high-end, fine-dining establishment! At the end of our dinner, she came to let me know that it was usual to offer a dessert (either Ek Mek or Baclava) complimentary for the birthday person. I requested the Ek Mek and she included extra forks for the rest of the party. We all found the dessert to be absolutely wonderful and we were happy to be able to try it. All in all I enjoyed the meal and will definitely return (especially as I do live in the area now)!

Pho Chung Nam522 6th Avenue, New Westminster
Good Vietnamese Pho
Submitted Sunday, November 28, 2010 - 9:59pm [Dine in]

So went here with a couple of friends for a late Sunday night dinner. I had decided that I wanted to try the Pho as I have been looking for a decent Pho restaurant in New Westminster that is close to my neighbourhood. I found that the service was good but nothing spectacular. We placed our orders, including sharing the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. One friend had the Vietnamese Special combo meal, one friend had the Chicken & Broccoli on steamed rice and I had the Beef Ball & Steak Pho. All of the food was very good and came out very quickly. I really enjoyed the Pho and it came with a plate with lots of fresh bean sprouts, fresh lime and basil. The combo meal appeared to be really good as well with lots of of variety. We had lots of good hot tea and the pot was refilled at our request without any problems. But towards the end, the service declined as the workers all started to have their own dinner. Other than this, the food was tasty and really good value. I will definitely be back to try some of their other Vietnamese dishes.

Octoberfest dinner
Submitted Sunday, October 17, 2010 - 7:44pm [Dine in]

I went to this restaurant with a group of 4 women. We chose this restaurant for our yearly Octoberfest dinner, since the one from last year was not great. We were seated, not so promptly, even though we had reservations. Two of the women were in earlier than myself and one other, and were ignored twice by the hostess, even though both tried to tell her they had reservations. They were seated just before our arrival. The restaurant was busy, but not that busy, but it seemed to take a long time to get water and the waitress left right away, without taking a drink order. About 10 minutes later the waitress returned and we placed our order for a bottle of wine and our dinner orders. The wine was brought, but it wasn't the one we ordered, but we were satisfied and accepted the change. The dinners arrived and they were decent, flavourful, but I did find that the amount of food was small in consideration of the prices. I was still hungry so had the Death by Chocolate dessert and this was absolutely decadent. The cake was rich and the icing was a deep, dark chocolate. Absolutely the best part of dinner! Will I return.... not likely.

Good small plates
Submitted Saturday, February 6, 2010 - 10:59pm [Dine in]

Went out for the day with a couple of friends and for a bite to eat tonight decided to give this restaurant a try due to some good reviews in the local newspapers. We were greeted promptly as we entered and given a table immediately. The wait staff were friendly and very fast (a little too fast to make a decision on wine, etc. though) and we had to ask them to come back a couple of times, before we could decide on some wine and some small plates. The wine was served and very quickly the food was brought. We had decided to share the mussels, the scallops and the sourdough toast first, then added the short ribs and the rosemary tenderloin kebabs. The food was very well presented and the servings were ample and good value for the dollar. The mussels were absolutely fresh and tasty as were the scallops. The sauces were so good that we used the extra bread for dipping and soaking up the juices. once these dishes were finished we decided to share the cheese plate and a couple of desserts. All of it was delicious and I would definitely recommend this place to other friends.

Good food for a good price
Submitted Wednesday, May 13, 2009 - 6:54pm [Dine in]

So we decided to give this new little sushi restaurant a try. We had received a menu in the mail and thought that the prices were absolutely incredible. Tried both Bento boxes (A - $5 and B - $6.25) and found the food to be good for the price. I was offered spicy tuna sashimi instead of the regular sashimi and I found it to be very tasty and had great flavour. The green salad was just regular green salad but the dressing on it was spicy and tangy - really good tasting. The chicken terriyaki was well done and none of us found any bones or gristle. The Ebi Sunomono salad was also good, with two large ebis, a slice of lemon and lots of dressing. The gyoza were also really well made and the sauce that came with them had great flavour and we were able to use some of it with some of our sushi rolls (for added flavour to the terriyaki rolls).

We tried two of the party trays (Tray C and the Vege Tray) and all the rolls were very fresh and tasty, but I did find that some of the rolls were a little loose. But still absolutely fabulous for the value.

So all in all, we found the food to be great, the value was fantastic and the service was impossible to beat (all that food in 30 minutes and it certainly did not taste like it was prepared earlier). I can't really say much for the ambiance as we picked up the food to take it home. But the restaurant appeared to be clean, if a little on the stark side. But we will definitely be eating there again.

Le Vol Au Vent14959 Marine Drive, White Rock
Wonderful experience
Submitted Thursday, February 12, 2009 - 5:36pm [Dine in]

I went here with a friend and felt that I had walked into a small French cafe. My friend has been here before and we were greeted warmly by both of the owners (hostess/waitress and the chef). We sat down and menus were brought promptly, including the Daily Specials sheet. After a few minutes our orders were taken and our selected wine was brought. The wine was a French red, which I found to be delicious. I had decided not to have an appetizer since the daily dessert specials were displayed on the front counter and I wanted to save room for dessert. I had the Croque Normand with pomme frites and a fresh salad and my friend had an omelet (with goat cheese in it) with pommes frites and a fresh salad. The food was delivered very quickly and I found that my Croque Normand was sublime. The ham and cheese inside the homemade bread was warmed nicely and the camembert on top was melted and wonderful. The salad had a homemade dressing which I found to be delicious. The pommes frites were shoestring-size, crisp and fresh. My friend gave me a taste of his omelet (which had been cooked to order - with the eggs soft in the middle) and I felt that next time I come to this restaurant that I will have one of their omelets. Once our meals were finished our dishes were cleared and the rest of our wine was poured. The hostess/waitress informed us that she would return when we were ready for coffee and our dessert. After approximately 30 minutes we were ready for dessert and we both had the Upsidedown Apple Tarte. The tarte was warmed and served with vanilla ice cream and fresh whipped cream. I found that this was a perfect finish for a wonderful French luncheon. This was a first time visit for me, but definitely not a last visit.

Old Bavaria Haus, The233 6th St, New Westminster
Good fare
Submitted Sunday, October 5, 2008 - 12:35am [Dine in]

Went to this restaurant with a large group of friends (13 in total), for the old Octoberfest dinner. I had a decent dinner of Bavarian Bratwurst with the usual fare of saurekraut, stewed cabbage, roasted potatoes and very good vegetables. I found my dinner to be very filling and the waiter did bring some strong mustard for me and another friend (who had the same dinner). The others had a range of other schnitzels, including the special and even the vegetarian version. All dinners were of good value and we all found the food to be very filling. But all in all, I am not sure if I will go back because we did find that the food was good but the value was not the greatest (unless you have a coupon and you can't use multiple coupons with a large group - you can only use a maximum of 3 coupons even with our large group).

From all right to downright awful
Submitted Wednesday, July 30, 2008 - 8:34pm [Dine in]

I used to go to this restaurant before their renovations and found it to be all right for the price. The hot food was served hot and the cold food was served cold. So once the renovations were completed I decided to give it another try. And I have to say, it was one of the worst experiences I have ever had at an AYCE restaurant. The hot food was barely lukewarm and I actually sent the vegetable tempura back since it was cold and so greasy I couldn't even eat it. The gyoza were also cold as was the agedashi tofu. I know that a person gets what they pay for, but this was not even worth $5.00, never mind the $10.95 a person pays for week days. I will not be back, not even for our usual group lunch dates that we used to have at this restaurant.

Chong Lum Hin Seafood Restaurant7604 6th Street, Burnaby
Not great for the price
Submitted Monday, June 16, 2008 - 1:22am [Dine in]

I have been wanting to try out this restaurant since I saw their Grand Opening signs and saw the write-up in the local newspaper. So tonight I went with some Chinese friends and we decided to try the Chinese Special dinner for 6 people, for $98.00. There were a total of 6 dishes, including one appetizer, one soup and then four other dishes. The appetizer was tiny, with a few slices of pork hock, a few very thin slices of some beef and a large pile of jelly fish. The soup was decent size, but had little flavour. The next dish was the whole lobster on a bed of noodles and Chinese greens. The lobster did not come with anything to crack the legs open and none of them were opened far enough to be able to get the meat out. Then a dish was served with vegetables and seafood and another one with green peas and fish (which was supposedly sole). Then a plate of cold chicken, chopped up. The last thing was the "dessert" and I have to say that I think I would have preferred a Fortune cookie, than the bowl of sweetened beans in sauce. All in all, not the greatest of meals, especially considering the price. I have had much better food at a restaurant down the street, for a lot less. I will not be back for dinner again, but I will try the Dim Sum one morning though to see how that compares with other places I have tried.

Lalibela Ethiopian Restaurant4530 Hastings St, Burnaby
Wonderful experience
Submitted Saturday, May 10, 2008 - 11:18pm [Dine in]

Tonight I went to dinner here with a group of friends. I had not been to an Ethiopian restaurant before, so was looking forward to a new experience. I arrived and it was determined that there is no cutlery provided for eating, that you just eat with your fingers and some bread that you dip and scoop with. So the group arrived and it was decided that we would order 8 dishes, and share them around. The waiter/owner came around and took our orders for beverages. Upon his return we asked several questions about the food and any recommendations, which we did follow. We were then asked if the food was to be shared and if we possibly wanted the "scoop" bread (a very thin bread that smelled like it was made with rye flour) and dishes served on platters and we agreed to this. Two large platters were brought with the bread "scoops" and then the dishes began to arrive.

The food was spicy (but still mild enough for the majority of our group though), with great taste and decent quality. Each dish was split onto the two platters and we began to eat. More "scoop" bread was brought in baskets, and it was cut into strips, making for easier tearing up into bite-sized pieces. I found the food to be delicious and filling, and it was easy enough to eat by all of us.

We had a great deal of fun eating and talking. It was a great get-together and altogether not too expensive ($20.00 per person including tips, alcohol and lots of food). So I will return.

Really great food!
Submitted Wednesday, March 19, 2008 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

So went to this restaurant for lunch today with a bunch of co-workers. We were seated and served tea very quickly. One of the group put in our order and we were served the dishes very promptly. We did have to send one dish back as they had forgotten to add the chicken to the dish, but this was sorted out quickly and efficiently. Other than this, the food was absolutely excellent. We had the Szechuan Shredded Beef with Ginger, which was quite spicy, but had lots of flavour. The other dish that stands out was the Deep-Fried Squid with Pepper-Salt. We enjoyed this dish so much we even ordered another plate of it. We also liked the Egg Rolls (which did have meat in them). After spending a great lunch there, it was back to work. Will definitely be back for more of their food.

New Lakeview Seafood & Wuntun7765 6th Street, Burnaby
Good to try local places
Submitted Saturday, February 9, 2008 - 8:51am [Dine in]

Went out for Chinese New Year with a Chinese family and friends. We decided to try out this small local restaurant as a change. The family did all of the ordering (in Cantonese) so I was not sure what was going to be coming for our dinner. The soup was the first dish out (as usual) and the broth and seafood was good, but there were so many mushrooms in it that I could not finish it (as I am not fond of mushrooms at all). The other main course dishes then began to arrive, slowly. Found the food to be all right, but some I could not eat, due to the amount of large Chinese mushrooms - some left whole, but most were chopped up and difficult to pick other items out of the dish. I did manage to get enough to eat though, so I did not leave the place hungry. The only complaint I did have about the meal though is that the bowl of steamed rice and the fried rice dish were delivered last and the meal could have been the better for the rice to be served with the other main course dishes. Will I be back - not likely. But it is good to try other restaurants.

Sammy J. Peppers Grill & Bar1517 Anderson Street, Vancouver
Excellent staff
Submitted Thursday, February 7, 2008 - 8:07am [Dine in]

A friend and I went to this location of Sammy J's recently and have nothing but rave reviews about the waitress and the staff. We ordered our entrees - she had the Chicken Stir-fry with some added hot peppers and I had the Sweet Chili Chicken Rice Bowl. And for our appetizer we decided to share the Hot Wings - which we requested to be crispy, not "gooey", without too much sauce. The waitress (Amy) put in our appetizer order and returned very quickly with our drinks. After waiting about 15 minutes, our waitress returned and informed us that the wings had come up but that she felt they were not crispy enough and had sent them back and that the order would be another 10 minutes. We were amazed that she had done this, as most places would have served them as cooked by their kitchen staff. After another 10 minutes, the wings were delivered and we found that they were absolutely delicious.

The waitress also informed us that she had already put our entree orders in as there was another large party ordering and so she did not want us to wait too long for our meals. This was an incredible foresight on the part of our waitress, and was great for the two of us. Our meals were delivered shortly and again, the food was well presented. The only problem that I found with my meal is that the basmati rice was very salty and I believe had too much butter mixed into it. Otherwise, the food was very good.

When it came time for our bill to be delivered, we were informed by our waitress that due to the long delay of the wings, the cost of the appetizer had been removed from our bill. This was truly impressive as we had not even complained about the delay. So we will both be back to this restaurant to try some of their other meals, and we will make sure to ask for the same waitress.

Gone way downhill
Submitted Sunday, January 13, 2008 - 7:02am [Dine in]

I agree with the last two posters. I went to this place on the recommendation of an article in the newspaper about 2 years ago and it was decent. The donuts were not too greasy, and the coffee was hot. However, I went there again about a month ago and this place has gone downhill in a big way. The coffee was only lukewarm and had a strange-looking film on the top, even after I added cream. I took one sip and found it to be bitter and almost cold. Then I tried the donut and this was even worse. I found the donut to be so greasy that I could not eat it. I tried one bite and got a mouth full of oil. I tried using a napkin and after soaking up 10 napkins worth of grease, figured it just wasn't worth it. I gave the plate and napkins and the remainder of the donut back to the server, as well as the coffee and let her know that I would not be back.

I went to Fatburger with some friends tonight, and had heard from all of them about how great the burgers were and how they are so much better than all of the other fast food restaurant burgers. I found that the burgers were quite good as were the fries. However, I found that the price was rather exorbitant for what you get. The regular Fatburger, with fries and a drink came to just over $11. And this is for a burger that has only cheese, tomato, onion and the regular condiments. Rather steep in my eyes. So will I be back - not likely.

Good company, bad service
Submitted Monday, December 31, 2007 - 1:18pm [Dine in]

Yesterday I went to Red Robin (near Lougheed Mall) for lunch with a friend. We were greeted promptly at the door, but from there it truly went downhill. The server came over, took our drink order (for two coffees) and walked away. When she returned, we were ready to order our food. The orders were taken and then the server disappeared. The food was delivered shortly and I found the soup to be only lukewarm and there was far too much dressing on the Caesar Salad. My friend had the "Clucks and fries" and he too found the food to be lukewarm at best. Once the food was delivered to our table, we were given one refill on our empty coffee cups, and once again the server disappeared. After our meal was finished and our coffee cups were empty once again, the server returned and brought our bill (along with the usual dessert menu) and no offer of more coffee. We paid the bill and left the restaurant. When we left, I accidentally forgot a book that I had brought with me, lying on top of the table. Now, I am not sure what happened, but the book is now missing. I called and was informed that no book was turned into their Lost & Found. Whether the server took the book, or the next table of young kids took the book, I can't say. But with the cost of the mediocre food, the bad service and the issue of the missing book, I will not be back to this restaurant.

Incredible dim sum
Submitted Saturday, December 29, 2007 - 9:42pm [Dine in]

I went to Dragon Palace for dim sum with a group of 7 people. We were seated in one of the rooms and I was a little bit apprehensive, since I was unsure if we would be forgotten. But the staff were very attentive, and we were served promptly as soon as the entire group had arrived. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the amounts of food to order, and what would be appropriate for the group (which included two younger children and one vegetarian). The food was brought by servers and we were informed what each plate/container contained. I found that the speed of the delivery was excellent, as each new dish was brought once everyone had a chance to try the old dish. The food was beautiful in presentation and was of very good quality. I found the seafood (especially the squid and scallops) to be fresh and tasty. The dish that I especially enjoyed was the Deep Fried Tofu with Salt and Peppers (which was spicy). I found the food to be well worth the money ($90 for 7 of us, with lots of leftovers to take home). I have not been to many dim sum restaurants, but I will defintely be back for some of the dishes we did not have a chance to try on this visit.

Good burrito
Submitted Friday, November 23, 2007 - 9:09pm [Dine in]

I went to the Red Burrito on Commercial Drive at the request of my Mom and tried one of the chicken burritos. I found that the service was decent, but nothing to write home about. The food was also good and I found that the ingredients that they used were actually quite tasty. I liked the fact that the fillings were what you wanted, not just whatever the restaurant wants to put in them. I had the hot and spicy salsa and also had the guacamole (which did cost more, but well worth it). The burrito was pretty big with all of the ingredients, but it was truly tasty. It was on the expensive side ($7.50) but I felt that it was worth it. Will I be back? Only if I am in the area, or maybe I will try the Red Burrito on Robson Street.
