La Tandoor Restaurant3651 Moncton St, #120, Richmond
Flavour flavour flavour
Submitted Monday, March 10, 2008 - 12:26pm [Dine in]

I am absolutely shocked to read the reviews here. I have gone to La Tandoor twice over the past couple of months and think it is by far the best Indian food I've ever had! I've frequented many restaurants in many different cities and this food hands down is superb.

The curries are interesting, like the banana and cashew curry. The flavours are literally exploding in my mouth when I eat them as with each chew another layer of deliciousness reveals itself. There is nothing here that I have been mediocre or disappointed with.

If you love delicious Indian curries, definitely go here and try everything that catches your attention.

Cafe Deux Soleils2096 Commercial Dr, Vancouver
Great Food, Great Vibe
Submitted Monday, July 3, 2006 - 2:16pm [Dine in]

Searching for a good breakfast place is always goal of mine. Today we decided to go out to the drive and see where the people are. Typically, a busy place is a good place. Seemingly ths trick paid off.

You order at a counter and they bring your food to where you are seated. We got a creamy and delicious muffin with strawberries, coconut, and cream cheese. It was heavenly. We also enjoyed a chai latte as well as an Inka latte (which is a coffee substitute) and again delicious.

For our mains we had the "Stella" and "Special" which one is a vegetarian eggs bene with veggie ham. The flavours were great. Tangy and creamy, but the perfect balance. The other was scrambled eggs with a garlic/feta/tomato topping with marble rye toast. Very fresh and clean flavours.

The vibe was great too. There were all sorts of people enjoying a late breakfast and everyone was buzzing around the place. We felt really comfortable and welcomed. Definitely we'll be returning.

Havana Restaurant1212 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Nice place to sit; the food not so great
Submitted Sunday, July 2, 2006 - 8:07pm [Dine in]

The patio is great at Havana. We went there on a hot summers day to see the art gallery opening of a friend.

We got ourself a table on the patio, ordered some drinks and food and then got up to look at the art while waiting. Upon returning 10 minutes later we see that our table is gone and taken by another group of people.

Upon asking the staff they finally got us another table. No apologies, nothing. It was odd to say the least. When the food arrived it was fine, but really nothing great.

We had a spicy chicken salad, which was tasty, but the lettuce was warm and soggy. Flavours were there, but texture obviously wasn't. The tuna was okay, yet the yam fries were decent.

Food was an average to less than average experience, but the location is great. However, it would've been better if we actually didn't lose our table mid visit.

ABC Country Restaurant2350 Boundary Road, Burnaby
Surprisingly Bad
Submitted Sunday, July 2, 2006 - 11:05am [Dine in]

We're always on the look out for a good breakfast place, since it's one of my favourite meals to go out for.

We figured ABC Country would be your typical fare: nothing amazing, but noting really bad either. Boy, were we mistaken. When we arrived it was decently busy, which is typically a good sign.

We sat down and waited for our server. 20 minutes passed and no one. I flagged one down and he helped us right away, which was great. However, we didn't get our drinks until I food came and they seemed confused as to who was actually serving us.

We ordered poached eggs and pancakes and another order of eggs, potatoes, and toast. The poached eggs were done in some sort of poacher dreanched in margarine. They were like rubber and they were this fake manufactured shape. I mean McDonalds does better eggs than this. The pancakes were undercooked, white, and did not even resemble the flavour of any pancake I've ever tried. Again, McDonalds pancakes are better and I think McDonalds food is fairly sub-par.

Overall, not a very good experience. I'm really surprised they are busy, but most of the people were all seniors who's tastebuds obviously must be expired.

Chefi's Seaside Bistro4371 Gallant Avenue, North Vancouver
Surprisingly Wonderful
Submitted Sunday, July 2, 2006 - 10:22am [Dine in]

My husband and I decided to try out Chefi's last night after noticing it while visiting Deep Cove the previous weekend.

We shared a bunch of starters: crab cakes, thai mussles, pear and mixed green salad, and calamari. Everything, except the calamari were amazing. The crab cakes were especially a treat, considering they are not something we are typically fond of.

We also had the warm gingerbread with caramel sauce and vanilla icecream for dessert. Lets just say it was so good that we ended up ordering another.

We were pleasantly surprised by the balance and combination with flavours. The restaurant is small and nicely decorated. We sat on the patio and enjoyed some wines from their small, but well put together wine list. The service was good, as our server was nice in the truest sense, not like the manufactured and fake servers you find in all large restaurants. Overall, Chefi's was a fantastic treat we look forward to visiting again.

Liliget Feast House & Catering1724 Davie Street, Vancouver
Mislead
Submitted Friday, March 17, 2006 - 9:33pm [Dine in]

A friend of ours was visiting us last week and he heard about Liliget and wanted to try it out. I did some searching online and heard many good to glowing reviews about this restaurant. Being probably the only First Nations fine dining restaurant really intrigued me.

Upon entering the restaurant, it's beautiful. The decor in unique and you sit at tables that make you feel as if you are sitting on the floor (sort of how they have tables at some Japanese restaurants).

Our server was very nice. He has a softness in his manner and was quite friendly.

We ordered the halibut, an order of elk, and a sampler platter with Salmon, Cod, Oyster, Buffalo smokie, Venison, wild rice and some vegetables.

My halibut was quite dissappointing. It was tough, chewy and very bland. I do like fish that is simple so I can enjoy the flavour, but this was really no good. The texture was poor as well as the flavour. The platter was amiss as well. The only seem that seemed to be enjoyed was the elk; however, was a little overpowering by the sauce.

It's a shame because we felt the concept was a very good one, but unfortunately it was a let down. Perhaps they have declined in quality because I felt mislead by the reviews I had heard. Anyhow, a nice ambient experience, but poor food experience.

Caffe Barney2975 Granville Street, Vancouver
Always craving Barneys
Submitted Friday, January 6, 2006 - 3:40pm [Dine in]

This is my favourite breakfast place to go to on a weekend morning. The service is quick, the food is delish, and the prices are right.

As well the cafe is cozy and warm with a huge skylight overhead. Bring your morning paper, grab a coffee/tea and enjoy your weekend.

Elbow Room, The560 Davie St, Vancouver
Not in the mood to be bothered
Submitted Friday, January 6, 2006 - 3:35pm [Dine in]

I've been to Elbow room a few times and has a fun concept of acting as a New York style restaurant. Rude staff is their game and can give you a good chuckle. For me, I find it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable, so unless I'm in the right mood I normally won't choose this place first.

The food is typical good ol' breakfast fare: tasty and large portions. I can never finish my meal so I usually end up donating to the charity.

Yuji's Japanese Tapas2059 W. 4th Avenue, Vancouver
Always a fantastic meal
Submitted Friday, January 6, 2006 - 3:25pm [Dine in]

My husband and I love going to Yuji's for dinner whenever we can. The food is made with much care and tastes fresh and delicious.

We tend to spend about $60 for the both of us and we're very full at the end of our meal, so I'm not sure why other posters don't feel the same.

The decor is clean and bright and our favourite server Tomo always greets us with a genuinely warm smile when we arrive. This is a great place to dine at for a consistently enjoyable experience.
