Just for the tan tan noodles
Submitted Friday, March 23, 2007 - 10:39pm [Dine in]

I've tried this restaurant for both lunch and dinner but the dish that I specifically come here for is the deluxe tan tan noodles. Everything else is alright, but these peanutty-spicy noodles are awesome! Service and ambiance are okay. It's hard to wave down a server sometimes but it doesn't deter me from returning.

Too bad they're closing
Submitted Thursday, March 22, 2007 - 10:17pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is reportedly closing in April, so I came here with some extended family members (my first time here, but the others had been here before).
Food: Really, really big portions. I don't think anyone could finish their order. I had the baked pork chops on rice and ate half of it. Food was tasty and hot, and brought out quickly. Prices are reasonable considering the portion sizes.
Service: Typical of most other HK-style restaurants, but the server was not difficult to find, and tea glasses were refilled when empty.
Ambiance: Clean and bright. A little noisy when it got crowded, but not that bad.

They're open late and have a special "mini-set" menu for before 6 pm or after 9 pm. I'll try to go there again before they close up shop.

tasty chicken
Submitted Saturday, March 17, 2007 - 1:00am [Dine in]

Seems pricey, but very filling! I didn't try the pastas but the plates looked huge.
Food: chicken dishes are very tasty. I really liked the grilled chicken...nice and juicy and not soaked in sauces. Appetizers are on the expensive side.
Service: server was very nice, but didn't come around that often.
Ambiance: Clean and pleasant.
May come back for the pastas, but I'm not in a huge rush to go back since there's so many Italian restaurants along Robson St.

It's Alright
Submitted Sunday, March 4, 2007 - 4:49pm [Dine in]

Food: Tasty and well-seasoned; unfortuantely not a lot of seafood in the mixed seafood (a lot of it is onions and green peppers), but other seafood dishes might have a higher ratio. Rice is very good. Spring rolls are light and crispy. Other dishes, however, had *a lot* of sauce. I'm not a Thai or Chinese chef so I don't know if that's how it's supposed to be, I'm just saying.
Service: Prompt; they refill your water glasses quite often.
Ambiance: Small, clean
Price: Medium-range; you can get stuffed with an entertainment coupon for about $25 for two people

They do take-out and delivery as well.

popular for parties
Submitted Saturday, February 17, 2007 - 8:17pm [Dine in]

I came here for a friend's birthday party and there were at least 4 or 5 other get-togethers at the same time as us...service didn't suffer at all! That was nice :)
Food: the pastas are very very good. I had the mussel appetizers as a main and it was very filling. The butter they give you with the bread is terrific! Didn't get to try desserts or drinks, unfortunately...next time!
Service: as previously mentioned, our server was very nice and courteous, food was brought out soon, and they didn't bother us about lingering for a while (we were a large group).
Ambiance: I think it's great for birthday dinners or dates, but even with so many large groups it wasn't too noisy. Bathrooms very clean :) Comfy seats.
I'll recommend this restaurant if any of my friends want a place to get-togther

Who needs meat?
Submitted Monday, January 22, 2007 - 10:17pm [Dine in]

The menu is primarily vegetarian, with 2 meat dishes [shwarma]...so it's still pretty much vegetarian.
The spinach tabil here is crazy good, as is this baked cheese dish that was deliciously soft and gooey. the baba ganoush is also very good, as mentioned by a previous reviewer.
the service is quite attentive, our waters were refilled regularly, and Habibi said bye to us as we left :)
The room is dim and can be nice for a romantic dinner. They had to open the door a couple of time to let out some of the extra steam from the kitchen, but it wasn't left open for so long that it got too chilly.
Try if you want to sample something a little different!

love the roti
Submitted Friday, January 5, 2007 - 12:40am [Dine in]

I've visited this location several times and have always enjoyed the meal.
Food: Brought out very quickly, fresh, and in big amounts. They have [had?] lunch specials for about $6 or $7 that were a pretty good deal - you get a decent amount of food for that price.
Service: Can be hard to get a seat since it's so busy but never had any problems.
Ambiance: Nice decor, but crowded.
My friends and I come here when we're having a craving for malaysian curry or that amazing roti canai.

Submitted Friday, January 5, 2007 - 12:16am [Dine in]

had 8 girls here a couple of weeks ago for a girl's night out. they gave us a cozy table by the window and both service and food were fantastic.
nice touches: fingerbowls and plate changes between appies and bread, as well as the server asking each of us how our food was.
drinks are also reportedly very good by my friends who did drink.
the room is decorated with chic, dark interiors, cool lights, and very comfortable stylish seating.

Submitted Friday, December 29, 2006 - 6:33pm [Dine in]

girls' night out and we were looking for a place to hang out and enjoy some drinks...we definitely picked the right place! the rest of granville was pretty quiet [a weeknight] but this resto-lounge was filled up by 10 pm.
we enjoyed our martinis [if you like fruity martinis, this is the place :) ] and the mango liqueur cheesecake is AMAZING.
didn't try the savory dishes but they looked great! will return.

Jazz + Steak = :)
Submitted Tuesday, December 26, 2006 - 3:32am [Dine in]

Had a terrific time here the other night, with the Dave Davies Trio performing.
Food: steaks were cooked JUST RIGHT! Both the sirloin and the ribeye sampled by our table were tender and juicy. Huge martini list...the PHD is tasty! Food came out quite quickly.
Service: Attentive and friendly, and unpretentious. No complaints here!
Ambiance: The room is dimly lit, and feels very intimate. The jazz is awesome. The only quibble I had was that there was a party with a crying baby whose wails occasionally drowned out the music, but that's not the restaurant's fault (or the baby's, really). At the back near the bar there are taller tables that seat 4, and let you see the whole room, but still feels nice a cozy.
Coming with an entertainment book coupon offers great value, but I would return without one too :)

great for parties
Submitted Sunday, December 24, 2006 - 2:25am [Dine in]

went here for a birthday party and was impressed by the ambiance and the service. for groups over 20 people there is a required set menu...on the website it says 27.99 but you can get it for less if you cut out some of the stuff, and you get an enormous amount of food regardless.
food itself was okay. salads and calamari were great, pastas were so-so [didn't always taste like anything].
service was attentive and the hostess sang happy birthday in italian for the birthday boys :)
the restaurant is set up in a huge mansion [as noted by others] and i think it makes a very large floor space feel quite intimate, as rooms have been left separate so you can dine with your friends and not feel surrounded by hundreds of people.

pub experience
Submitted Saturday, December 2, 2006 - 11:49pm [Dine in]

planned a party here a while back. food was alright, [typical pub fare, and then some pastas and such] and reasonably priced. their drinks are good, natch.
servers were quite courteous and many of our group were late. they told us that normally they'd have to get us to leave [only 3 out of 12 people had showed up] but they were letting us stay because they understood it was a surprise party. the only thing that miffed me [just a tad] was that neither during making the reservation or being seated was ever i told about a time contraint (there was a large group needing our table within two hours). so we had no idea until 45 minutes after we'd arrived. i was more mad at my friends than the restaurant though!
overall i think i'd be back for drinks with a small group but probably with a large group it would be hard to mingle for a party
big plus - they showered us with streamers during cake cutting - a nice touch ;)

burgood :)
Submitted Friday, November 24, 2006 - 8:45pm [Dine in]

after reading about the great soups and stews here, i suggested to my dining partner [i.e. boyfriend] that this would be a great fix for his soup-needing cold. i was mostly right.
food: soup and stews were indeed good and very very hearty. i'm not a big person, so despite being ravenously hungry i couldn't quite finish my irish stew. i was impressed by the size and the amount of tasty contents. the meat portion was generous and flavourful. french onion soup was again hearty and packed a lot of flavour punch.
service: attentive and friendly, no complaints here.
ambiance: rustic and homey.
the only thing that was a drawback was the price for bottled water [since tap water is not available due to temporary citywide water problem]. that was a minor thing, however, and would have been experienced anywhere.
can't wait to go back and taste more comfort food :)

Thai House Restaurant1766 W 7th Avenue, Vancouver
Submitted Sunday, November 19, 2006 - 11:32am [Dine in]

having only visited the north van location in the past and enjoying it very much, my other half and i decided to test out this location, conveniently close to the burrard/5th avenue cinema.
it was a little confusing trying to order...not from the menu [which is large], but because only one or two of the wait staff take orders. the first server we flagged down said to take the order from the waitress. the waitress that we flagged down said to take the order from the other waitress. it was not exceptionally busy at the time.
the food was very good, try the ostrich - it doesn't taste like chicken!
getting the bill took a very long while [>15 min], but reading the below revies i guess we weren't the only ones to have experienced this.

good cakes to be had
Submitted Sunday, November 19, 2006 - 11:25am [Dine in]

went here late last night and the place was pretty much packed. they have a huge selection of cakes and pies so we were a while in deciding what to order. they all looked so good! mocha cake is very yummy :) agree that this is probably not the place for a quiet date, but most of the tables are in "2's" for the many couples getting their midnight sugar fix.
may try the cheesecake in the future.

iron chef i am not
Submitted Sunday, October 1, 2006 - 11:22pm [Dine in]

...but my "creation" wasn't too bad.
Got here around 6 on a Friday night, not too busy yet. Around 7 it started filling up.
Food: you make your own from raw ingredients. I managed to remember that whatever I was mixing together was going to be eaten with rice, so I filled my bowl up around 3/4. Note: you can't just throw all different kind of meat in there, think about what tastes good together. This goes for sauces as well. Keep It Simple and you should be okay [i.e. mixing Curry, sweet and sour, and soy together won't be a nice experience].
I paid just over 10 dollars and was stuffed.
Service: attentive and friendly
Ambience: pretty clean, camels and yurts painted on the ceilings
Overall it was a good experience since I hadn't eaten "Mongolian" style grill before [to my recollection], but as some reviewers have written about the Richmond location, it can be a little more expensive than anticipated [they charge by weight]. I think it ends up being a little cheaper if you eat more vegetables [they tend to be lighter]

Red Door Pan Asian Grill2996 Granville St, Vancouver
Submitted Monday, September 11, 2006 - 9:54pm [Dine in]

I tried this restaurant a few weeks ago and was kind of hesitant because of some of the other reviews on the site...pleasantly surprised!
For two of us, we ordered two sides/appetizers and 2 mains, and split a bowl of rice - and were stuffed! All for about $35, which I thought was reasonable. The roti was different from the kind that I am used to from Malaysian restaurants...more like crepes I think? The multi-flavoured beef and peas&mushrooms were both good and flavourful.
I think the key to being full on a reasonable budget is to order the rice, like with other Asian foods. You don't need a whole lot and it keeps the food from tasting too salty.
Ambiance and service were good. :) I'd like to try that shaking beef in the future!

Awesome for dates
Submitted Tuesday, August 29, 2006 - 9:48pm [Dine in]

Impress your date/family/friends by taking them out to somewhere a little different. The restaurant is dimly lit, decorated with portraits, and upholstered in cozy, colourful fabrics. Pick the cushions but beware that after you fill yourself with the delicious food you might have some trouble standing up! The Horsemen platter for two stuffed us to the brim...no desserts this time. The lamb shoulder and chicken kebab were delicious, and the eggplant was really good too. Love the fried potato slices as well [can't remember their actual name]. Wash it down with some Afghan tea and feel all the yummy flavours in your stomach :)

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
I heart ramen :)
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2006 - 8:11pm [Dine in]

Been here a number of times and the ramen has yet to disappoint! As previous reviews mention, the broth *is* very fattening...I haven't managed to bring myself to try the "rich" soup because I probably would get too full 20% into my meal. My dining partner and I agree that the miso ramen is the tastiest on the menu, but the cold ramen is very refreshing in the hot summer months. The noodles are fresh tasting and never soggy. ;)
Service is okay. However, I think you get slightly faster service when you sit on the bar stools around the cooking area.
A lot of people would say that ambiance is poor because it does get really stuffy and hot [and if you sit in front of the stove you might smell a little noodly], and it's noisy. But considering the type of food that you're eating [think uber-casual, hearty stuff], and that the majority of people are there for fast, delicious eats at a terrific price, you really shouldn't be comparing the scene to really upscale places. So hence the 'decent' rating.
Nice place to eat after wandering all over Stanley Park all day long...and definitely student-budget friendly too!

Worth a return visit
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2006 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

Came here with friends for drinks and snacks/dessert on a Saturday night. Overall I thought it was good.
Food: The souffle was rich, chocolately, and moist...very nice. The fondue left everyone with mixed feelings, but the chocolate probably just wasn't heated up enough by the little candle before we started digging in. Calamari and dry ribs were also very good, with Chinese flavours.
They have a pretty large drink list, and you can also order things not listed [like daiquiris]. However, if you're looking for dessert wines to go with your desserts you're probably better off heading across the street to Cru [a wine bar/restaurant], which is more specialized in that area. The only complaint I had was that the lychee martini had no lychee taste in it :(
Service: prompt and generally attentive.
Ambiance: A nicely decorated room, very chic, and awesome washrooms [there's even stairs...and a ground level washroom for people who can't climb up the stairs]. And comfy stylish seats! No hard wooden chairs here!
Will return to sample their entree items. :)
