Kam's Place1043 Davie Street, Vancouver
I can always count on it!
Submitted Monday, June 9, 2008 - 9:18am [Dine in]

My girlfriend and I have been to Kam's nearly ten times in the last two years. Delicious food. Each time we try to order a new dish out of the two we get, and it's always delicious! The orange chicken is especially powerful, and we know we'll leave stuffed to the rafters. That coconut rice is so good, we quickly began ordering one each, as it's too good to split. Each dish is a brimming platter or stacked bowl. I'd say two dishes is enough for 4, but the way it tastes, we polish it off.
The service is very friendly and quick. The owner is humble and friendly, and the servers are quick and nice. I never have to ask for a refill on tea. They rock. It's usually about 10 minutes until we get our order, which always surprises us.
The location is convenient, right on Davie, and far enough from Burrard that it's quiet. I like the decor, and the volume level, combined with the peoplewatching through the windows, makes this a favorite place to drop in for dinner. My girlfriend took her Mother from Ottawa, and she had the same impressions. Very nice, inexpensive and fresh food.

Staying in business? How?
Submitted Monday, June 9, 2008 - 9:05am [Dine in]

I am puzzled how this establishment retains customers. It has lost this one, as well as my family.
The facts are this: The bagels are thin, but not as thin as the "supermodel" amount of creamcheese they sparingly spread. Honestly, $3.00 and the faint amount they give, it's no surprise most reviews here are of the "ripped off" feeling. I agree. Not to mention the inconsistency of the babkas and cinnamon buns....I kid you not, every 3rd is actually half as wide. You pay three bucks for a bun and get -2inches. Unacceptable.
Service has been rude each time I've been. I live close by, so I and my family have given this place more than a few fair shots. No more. The manager yelled at his employees infront of us a few times, but the other day we received the star treatment. We ordered bagels and noticed on our way out that my Grandfather's order was wrong. His wife, my Grandmother of 82 years, politely asked for the regular schmear instead of the salmon spread mistakenly served. The manager shouted at her for "having some nerve" to complain. My Mother intervened and re-explained, and he used a coarse word and slapped the unrequested refund on the counter.
It was very upsetting and I know that this mediocre cheapskate will not get the chance to abuse these customers again.

Dadeo New Orleans Diner & Bar3305 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Yummy breakfast
Submitted Monday, April 21, 2008 - 2:10am [Dine in]

The best french toast in town. Great eggs benny. A charming place I'm glad we discovered. The service is particularly friendly and dammit, just a great breaky, and I'm a picky customer. I've yet to be down for dinner, but when you make food so well, I can predict another great meal. Highly reccomended!

New management and delicious donairs
Submitted Tuesday, February 26, 2008 - 5:26pm [Dine in]

I noticed the new place and tried it out. The donairs were delicious and low-priced. The service was cheerful and exemplary. I want to go back for more. I got a card that entitles me to the 6th one free. I think I'll get that card filled pretty quick!

Urban Grain Pizza1914 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
I can eat a whole pie and still feel healthy
Submitted Wednesday, January 30, 2008 - 8:37pm [Dine in]

Sure, sharing a medium with me, myself and I is a bad idea, but I couldn't resist. The whole-grain crust kinda scared me at first, but it tasted great. Much better than white crust. I can only explain it because most pizza joints have crust that tastes like salt and oil. There was real flavor in urban grain's. The ingredients are very fresh and don't taste like they came out of jars. The chicken isn't shredded like a chicken-salad sandwich like megabite is, and it's not mechanically-seperated. The cheeses are real and freakin' yummy. They don't skimp on the cheese.
The main point of my review is that this, aside from homemade, is about as healthy feeling a pizza as I'd ever had. Only true gourmet can beat it. I'm a 4-time orderer and I will remain one.

Eggs Benedict Arnold
Submitted Sunday, January 6, 2008 - 1:27pm [Dine in]

This place has potential, even if I don't like the whole "get your own cutlery" thing. I mean, how cheap are they to have all the sugar at one table? What a pain spilling my tea back in forth.
I ordered the Eggs Benedict, and boy was I surprised. The eggs were *over-easy*. Huh? They're supposed to be steamed. If that weren't enough, the english muffin was not toasted, and the hollandaise was as thin as soup.
The veggie ham tasted good, but the artificial smoke flavour had me committing chemical warfare for about 18 hours. If you don't like real meat, cool, but don't serve me junk food like that.
The staff were friendly, but the food was a joke. The time prior to that, it was better. The problems and lack of professionalism are clear, however.

Megabite Pizza2440 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
I can't believe it
Submitted Wednesday, December 5, 2007 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

I ordered a BBQ chicken pizza tonight, and it took an hour and a half to show up. I called after an hour, and was told it would be there very soon. When 90 mins transpired my pizza showed up lukewarm. As if that wasn't bad enough, the chicken was not visible.
When I ate a slice, I noticed that all the chicken was shredded beyond recognition and under the cheese, causing a slippery mess.
Ever had a tuna sandwhich? That's what this chicken was like. It was gross. The crust was white on the bottom too, and excessively greasy because it hadn't been cooked long enough.

I called to ask why this all happened, and the person argued with me and refused to believe that my pizza was remotely flawed.

I will never give Megabite my business again. I feel sick, and in more ways than one.

Pizzo Pizza861 Denman St, Vancouver
They changed their recipe
Submitted Monday, November 12, 2007 - 11:51am [Dine in]

I ordered a pizza last week...They are no longer using any edam cheese, their pepperoni went from large, lean pieces under the cheese to small, greasy bits dripping over the top, and the crust is the consistency of a pancake made without milk.
I wouldn't post this if it was a bad night...but the first bad pie after two dozen, and the glaring recipe changes make me a former customer. This was the worst pizza I've had since Domino's. Believe me, I'm not happy this happened....

Helen's Grill & Restaurant4102 Main, Vancouver
The mighty have fallen, down deep.
Submitted Monday, November 12, 2007 - 11:44am [Dine in]

I have fond memories dating back over twenty years ago of Helen's being a great place for food...the ambiance is still there. The service and the food suck...something I couldn't keep doing with that god-awful "milkshake" they charged me 4 bucks to spit out.
Several years ago, Helen & George finally retired after becoming the longest-running original-ownership of any establishment in BC. The new management is mickey-mouse with careless teenage waitresses, higher prices, and the clincher, new recipes with lower quality.
This is Helen's in name only. The fries are dried out greasesticks, the pancakes went from huge to silver-dollars, the milkshakes are inedible. My strawberry shake was made with no name vanilla ice cream from the yellow tub, and a liberal squirt of Nestle's strawberry Quik syrup. Mmm sweeten up some ice cream, all it a shake and expect it to taste good. How about strawberry ice cream to start? This is only one example of the ignorance that has made this place a waste of time & money.
Helen's was legendary. In this century, however, Helen's bites the dust. Self parody is not what I want in a diner. This review is based on a visit just yesterday, but I could have written this 4 years ago. I thought I'd give the place another chance. Don't make the same mistake I did.
YUCK

Bon's Off Broadway2451 Nanaimo St., Vancouver
NEVER disappointed.
Submitted Friday, October 19, 2007 - 2:12am [Dine in]

I vote the ambiance for how damn cozy, fun and pleasing it is. That being said, I judge this place how it oughta be judged, and I must say, it rules. Cheap, delicious, and just a great place to go. I've been dozens of times, though far from a regular.
The relaxed atmosphere works with friends, family, solo, or a date(maybe not the first ;)
I always have gripes with breakfast places...something usually goes awry. Bon's always cooks things perfect. They're so consistent.
The items I can vouch for are the simpler ones. The all-day breaky, pancakes, fish'n'chips, beef dip...just don't get a milkshake because they're underwhelming. I also didn't love my eggs benny. The egg was perfectly cooked, but the "hollandaise" sucked.
Expect great cooking on a limited scope. Don't order more resteraunty items and expect to be blown away. If you wanna be blown away, order diner stuff because the Bon's Burger is unbelievably delicious....hoo man. I'm going tomorrow now. Seriously. bacon mushroom burger mmmm

Who delivers Poutine? THESE GUYS!
Submitted Monday, September 3, 2007 - 12:00am [Dine in]

Damn, that's some good freakin' poutine. Some guy wrote a review here, saying it was good. he was right. Plus, they actually deliver it, along with their quite decent pizza and the other things on the menu. The owner even delivered my food! Friendly service, good prices, delivered poutine that is my fave in the city for its extra dark gravy and good'n'melty curds. Brado is a winner!

Fabulous with Buffet or a la carte
Submitted Wednesday, July 18, 2007 - 8:26pm [Dine in]

I have been here with my girlfriend many times. The first was before the buffet was in. Great service, nice atmosphere. Good prices. Not cheap as dirt, but affordable. The food is terrific with the buffet as well. You get hot, fresh naan served multiple times as you eat(it fills you up, but it's heavenly) and the selection is great. Desserts at the buffet too. Highly reccommended.

Zesty Restaurant920 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Boo
Submitted Wednesday, July 18, 2007 - 6:29pm [Dine in]

This place may have undergone a name-change, I can't remember, but damn. The French toast was the worst I've ever had. Some genius thought 2.5 inch slices of french bread were a good idea, especially if you only soaked them in egg for maybe a second or two. Then, fry them for a scant time so they aren't even golden brown, just yellow hunks of bread. Then, charge $9, along with a 3-dollar cup of Earl grey Tea!! Starbucks sounds like a good place to save a coupla bucks, no?
bad food at a premium price. Yay.

Overpriced and porrly run
Submitted Wednesday, July 18, 2007 - 6:21pm [Dine in]

Food is great
Desserts are terrible
Wine is great
All prices are 4-star range
Service is ood
Atmosphere often ruined by loud, obnoxious gangsta rap on system. How hip do they think they are, really?
I've been here several times. Get the nachos, stay away from the desserts. Bring your VISA, and imagine a music-taste matching the atmosphere.

Frenchies! Montreal Smoked Meat1018 Commercial, Vancouver
Lacklustre and overpriced
Submitted Wednesday, July 18, 2007 - 6:15pm [Dine in]

My girlfeind got the smoked meat sandwhich, which was pretty god, but on refrigerated, stale bread. For the 7 or 8 bucks it cost, I was surprised.
I got the poutine, which was alright.
this place cost a pretty penny for the very pedestrian food. The decor was ruined by a big silver flatscreen playing the evening news wtf?
This place is ho-hum, with two gimmicks: Pseaudo-exclusive meat style and fake-50's decor. I won't be back.
