Definitely The Best In The Area !!!!!!!!!!
By Stevejames of Richmond B.C (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, June 15, 2013 - 10:23pm [Dine in]

A true hidden gem. A limited menu but the food is excellent everytime. Easily the best soup I ever had. There is a bit of a wait at lunch as there are lineups at times. Yes its that good. Daily specials do sell out so make sure you arrive early. Never tried it but they offer a three egg bacon breakfast wrap on 2 tortillas for only $5.50 so the prices are very good. They do cater for small and large groups from 5 to 500 or more with long enough notice.

"I can't even start to mention how good the food is! They have the best deals if you want cheap and fresh chicken. I pay less than ten dollars for 7 pieces of chicken! I also go there for the double downs. They are amazingly tasty as well (: Also, they maintain the store clean and sanitary, securing the quality of the foods."

Pajos - World's Best Guilty Pleasure
By princess123 of New Westminster BC (149 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, June 12, 2013 - 6:46pm [Dine in]

I have been to all the Pajos locations. This one is the best for ambiance.

Had halibut and chips and partner had cod and chips. Unlike at other locations or other visits, the cod was a little better here I think. The Halibut had a few spots missing batter and was just a little soggier than usual. The cod was crispy.

The chips were excellent as usual. All served in a paper cone. Get you condiments first though or you'll have no hands to do it. I have found the halibut at other locations a little better but who cares - it's all good. yay Pajos!

Unprofessional

Submitted Sunday, June 9, 2013 - 11:37pm [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant a few times now with family and friends and have noticed each time that someone who seamed to be the managers wife or girlfriend is always there in the lounge and it's extremly unprofessional for the manager to be kissing and touching her while he is on shift and to have her there watching all evening. I have seen this on my way to the bathroom almost each time I have visited this restaurant. The service is excellent, very attentive, very polite and excellent food!! Just the scenery of the public affection between who seamed to be the manager and this woman who is hanging out for hours.
I will still come back for the steak like I said, great food , great service.

I used to go to George's about 6 years ago hated the service and they never have any drinks on hand. But now the service is excellent and food is amazing. I will recommend this to everyone it looks cozy and very homey.
I also tried Kismos just a block away from them and the price is way to high for the service and the food you get its not worth it. I will say to everyone try George's their roast lamb is to dye for.

Went for late night all you can eat a while ago and found the experience to be just alright. I can't really hate on much but I also can't really brag about much. If you're looking for something cheap to eat in vast quantities and don't care about the taste then this is the place for you.

Kari House Restaurant3900 Bayview Street, #130, Richmond
Disappointing. Not authentic.
By Cat Stevens of Richmond , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 7:22pm [Take-out]

I was excited when I found out about this place in the Review's "Best of Richmond." I used to travel to Penang every few years with my parents as I have family there, and my favourite thing was the food. So I go online to check out their menu and think to myself, "Hm, this is a tad pricey." But I figure if it's good and they have decent sized portions, it'll be alright.

Well, I ordered my 2 favourite dishes, Char kway teow and Mee goreng, each costing about $11. Indeed their portions are larger than most, each dish could probably feed 2 people with relatively small appetites.

The Char kway teow was extremely bland. It was just flat rice noodles lightly fried with soy sauce and a barely noticeable amount of chilli. But at least it somewhat resembled authentic Char kway teow, which is more than I can say for the Mee goreng.

I honestly can't figure out whether they got my order wrong with the Mee goreng, it was that bad. It's supposed to be thin noodles fried with sweet soy sauce, but what I got was this weird, flat noodles in a soupy sauce. It tasted of disgusting spices that I did not recognize. Had I not payed $11 for this I would have thrown it out.

The only positive thing I can say about Kari House is that if you ask for prawns, you actually get a fair amount of decent sized prawns, not a couple of tiny shrimp. But that's obviously not enough for me to recommend or go back to this place.

Seriously best pizza ever ! We ordered first time there about two years ago when we moved in Richmond. Till then there pizza become our favourite because there food has loads of toppings. They put cheese like no one does. Other pizza places pizza we can count the topping but there is loaded. I love watching them making pizza. They take care of costumer so well, they are busy and we have to wait little longer. They have always offered me free drink while waiting.

I can go again and again to get no 1 pizza in taste and every penny worth.

New Location but service was slow

Submitted Saturday, June 1, 2013 - 7:47pm [Dine in]

Decided to check out their new location. Waited ~ 10 mins for the waitress to acknowledge that we were waiting as they were running around looking after customers. We were led to our table of 2 and our orders were taken quickly. The waitress returned after 5 mins with 2 dishes. We looked at them and told her it wasn't what we ordered. Turns out it was for the table 2 tables away. A little while later, my wife's order arrived. We waited for another 10 mins and finally my order was brought out. The waitress was too busy to fill up our teas but was quick to put our bill on our table. I think with their bigger location, they need to hire a few more servers to keep up.

Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
Should have gone to McDonald's instead
By eating good food of Vancouver (128 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 30, 2013 - 9:58pm [Dine in]

I came here tonight with a friend of mine, for Mmphis BBQ Night $24.95.....sounds good...I mean all you can eat too.

Anyhow, we went in and there seriously was not that much selection (at least not in the meat categor y(ribs, some chicken and that's pretty much it) I went and got some ribs (about 2 or 3) but it was pretty hard to cut so probably just ate 2. ceasar salad, and they have big sized chicken nuggets. I took at total of 6 my first time there and 8 the second ....the food quality really wasn't all that good to be honest, and for $24.95 it really wasn't that much food.....sure it's all you can eat, but will all that MSG crap that they put in thier food it makes you feel full really quickly....I have been to buffets before and get full there too, but this place was beyond ridicoulous.

So in all;

The BBQ ribs sucked (the feature special) the nuggets were good, but probably loaded with MSG so didn't eat all that many (certainly not $24 worth)....cesear salad ok, and of course the soda pop (well can't go wrong with that)

We won't be back.....seriously wish we had gone to Burger King or McDonald's instead

We were traveling through Vancouver on Mother’s Day with my mom and she picked Greek Food for dinner so we used Google Maps to find the closest Greek Restaurant and it certainly did not disappoint!! The food, the service, the ambiance, the value was FANTASTIC!! Thank you!! What a great touch – the chocolates for our mom – we loved that!

Mom loved the dinner! We decided the next time we travel through Vancouver we must stop in for another meal! We’ll be back!

Thanks! Chris & Ruth

By leigh of Vancouver (20 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 1:58pm [Dine in]

First off if you don't have the discount card don't bother with this place.

Reserved a table for 5 adults and 1 child for 12 noon. We waited 40 minutes because the chubby lady with the glasses at the front decided to let the regulars in first. Ordered food and waited another 30 minutes. How do I know 30? The time is written on the order receipt. Empty containers were not cleared off the table. Based on these things I gave the service a poor rating.

Food and value ties together. They make up the difference on the discount by charging a bit more than other places. Plus they shrunk the portions. Food taste was decent for the hai gow and Sui Mai. The Chinese donut wrap was a tad over oily. 2 dishes came out luke warm.

Ambiance was nice. If you decide to have a wedding here there is unobstructed views. Restaurant is a tad on the smaller side compared to some others in Richmond.

As we were leaving miss chubby gives a frown and rolls her eyes at my mother and mutters some negative remarks. Nice service /sarcasm

Overall I would give this place a pass and look somewhere else for your dimsum craving.

lastly not related to the restaurant. Parking is terrible here. There is a complex on the mckim side you can park at. Street parking meters don't take new coins. Example: I paid $3.75 for 1hr 27min of parking.

I have never been to this restaurant before, even though I always drive pass this place. Until recently, I moved home and this place is just two minutes away from my home. So one day I decided to take my family there for dinner. We were greeted by an enthusiastic waiter who recommended us a lot of dishes. In the end, my family and I ended up ordering a plate of honey garlic chicken wings, the Peking duck wraps and the meat from the duck was turned into fried rice. The honey garlic wings was extremely tasty, the skin was crispy with honey garlic sauce over them. While the Peking duck was also good, the duck's skin was crispy as well. Finally, the shredded duck fried rice was just average. Overall, the food does indeed taste good, with large amount of portion at an affordable price. I will definitely return for more Chinese food!

The waiters ignores people's request, first we ask if there was another menu beside set dinner, and the waitress refused to give it to us, and said she has to ask the manager... She never comes back.... Later, we found the manager, and he gave us another menu... We then asked to pay the bill, one of the manager said there is still desert to serve... We waited for another 10 minutes, " no desert" or the bill... we have to find another waiter and he then later came back for the desert... We then asked to pay the bill, and the waiter take the ticket on our desk and left, and he never came back... We have to ask another waiter to place another request for the bill... And in the end, they insist they need a bigger tip even with this lousy service.

small piece of fish
By pete66 of coquitlam (56 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 6:41pm [Dine in]

I had the one piece fish and chips for about $11.50, my partner had the steak sandwich for about $14.00.
the fries were the battered kind so they were pretty crispy. He was happy with his steak sandwich which came with sauted mushrooms. I was not impressed with my fish n chips, it came in what looked like a large size dim sum bamboo steamer which we thought was kind of strange since it was fish n chips, not Chinese food.. oh well.. I got a fairly small size piece of fish which was okay but the batter was overfried and too crunchy, not tender. not sure if I will be having the fish n chips again as not really good value for the price...the positive thing is that the view was nice though and you can see the float planes take off and land..

Inattentiveness of server ruined a lovely setting!

Submitted Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 4:29pm [Dine in]

Went for a family lunch there today and was so disappointed. Was prepared to love the place, the ambiance is stellar, with lovely views of the golf course. Would have been willing to overlook the somewhat bland food and unimaginative menu, but the service was the worse I have had in a long, long time. Our drink orders were taken promptly, but after at least hour a hour, no one offered to refill our coffees. Once we were able to hunt down a server, she refilled three of our coffees but left out one person. We were finally able to get another wait person's attention and she brought the coffee pot around again. Then we had to wait at least one hour for our food. When we enquired why it was taking so long, the server said the kitchen was backed up. Fair enough, but other tables that arrived after us received their food way before ours came. Was the food came, it was fairly disappointing. Because the server had told me that the fish and chips had huge pieces of fish, I only ordered one piece. When the I saw the tiny piece of fish they gave me, I knew it wasn't going to be enough, especially since I had substituted the chips for salad. I ended up having to order another piece of fish, and given that they had orginally misled me about the size of the fish, I would have thought that they would have been able to fry up another piece fairly quickly. Wrong again, the "extra" fish arrived after the rest of our party had finished eating. Anyway, would have loved to had a good experience here, but the inattentiveness of the service totally spoilt it for me. Will not return!

Chew & Gag
By diner40 of Vancouver (95 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 10:35pm [Dine in]

It was a blazing hot Sunday in Steveston last weekend packed with people and we all had a hunger for fish and chips. All of the restaurants by the water seemed to be either full or running out of fish and chips, at least according to a stressed looking girl at one place we stopped by. Forget about Pajo's, the line-up there was estimated at about 35 minutes just to place an order.

We weren't to be denied our fish and chips and decided to head deeper into town. We spotted The Buck an Ear from afar and after reading over the menu decided this was the place we would try, plus they had a number of spots on their patio.

Our drink order was taken almost immediately and menus presented. My two dining partners didn't look over the menu long as they knew it was fish and chips they wanted. I , on the other hand decided to go for the halibut burger, priced very reasonably, I thought.

The wait wasn't long. What arrived as fish and chips was something Captain Highliner would stick up his nose at. Two fair sized pieces of fish that looked like they were previously frozen. One of my dining partners let me sample this disaster. Not your typical fish and chips and not in a good way. Moist, flaky, flavourful, those words do not describe this fish. More like dry, dry and tasteless and oh yeah, did I mention dry? Just pathetic. The chef should be embarrassed. Thank god for fresh lemon and a ton of vinegar.

My halibut burger consisted of two small bits of fish served on what seemed like a near stale bun. The chips tasted like they were frozen at one point and as well on the dry side. The gravy tasted like it's put together by adding water to a powder fresh from a box purchased at the grocery store.

One thing they do well here and really should stick to is beer. A great selection served cold in a real pint glass.

KFC Lansdowne Richmond - Complete Ripe Off and Scam! Beware
By HeavenSeven of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, May 6, 2013 - 1:48pm [Take-out]

I live in this neighbourhood so I had several experiences visiting the KFC at Lansdowne food court. Never was impressed by the flat soft drinks and over greased dry chicken wings down there. There isn't many options in Lansdowne food court so I still go to the KFC once a while.

This time I visited them and I felt the rip off problem goten worse! I got a Zinger with 2 Chickens and salad on top of the burger and fries combo for takeout. After I got home this time, I was shocked at the size of the chicken wings, they are 1/4 the size of the regular KFC chickens, it seemed like a substitute of non authentic KFC chickens. The salad this time is just a bit over 1/2 full! Usually salads are topped full I have never seen something like this! They were even too cheap to put napkins and a fork in my to go order!

The forever flat soft drinks! Just can't stand the poor business practices and ripping people off! If any one going to Lansdowne KFC, watch out for ripe offs! I experienced this multiple times at this location knowing its this stores habit. There were times they charged me wrong with wrong combos and gave me something different and cheaper value in my takeout orders!
