I live down the street from this place and sadly can't visit it as much as I'd like (my husband has a whole bunch of allergies that make most Asian cuisines tricky to navigate) but whenever I do go there I'm always really pleased with everything I order. The prices could maybe be a BIT cheaper but short of going all the way to Commercial I'm unlikely to find anything competitive in the area.
Their dim sum menu is small but really good, and their hot pot is super-tasty. On the rare occasions when I have enticed my husband to join me they've done their best to accommodate his allergies and serve him up a decent meal. Their milk tea is also really good. I just wish I could haunt it more often!
Best Greek salad ever, we had the lasagna with meat balls, meat balls tasted like meat, all in all best pasta take out we have ever had, well done and thanks.
Delivery was quick and price was fine.
Order was hot and tasty and this page kind off pisses me off insisting I write at least fifty words, some times just an honest evaluation of the product and service will work just fine, any way we loved this place.
Been going here since it opened as well as when is was on Denman. My all time favourite is the Katsu Curry. YUM!!!!! It is not the kind of Japanese curry you make at home or at your Japanese friend's place, but it's equally awesome and creamy. The Shrimp cocktail is delicious as well. We have tried almost everythign on the menu. Yes, the prices have gone up and the side salad that came included with some of the dishes is no longer there, but all restaurants that have been running a long time has had to make similar adjustments.
We have continued to go here because of the food. Sometimes, the service is lacking since there is only one staff/server in the dining room. At times, this causes her to be awkwardly rude and disrespectful. If the place is packed, you may be asked to leave before you are ready to leave! This is my only complaint.
BTW, the chef is Japanese and his wife, the server, is Korean.
We had lunch here today when it opened at 11:30 am and sat ourselves down. Its just a little restaurant and the atmosphere is okay. They have lunch special bento boxes for $6.99 which is really good value as the portion size is pretty decent. We both had the chicken & sashimi (4 pieces) bento boxes for $10.99 which consists of teriyaki chicken over a bed of rice, assorted tempura (1 prawn & a few vegy pieces), The tuna and salmon sashimi were very cold, fresh & of a creamy texture which was so delicious! You also get 6 large pieces of California roll and I decided on the yam rolls instead which are tasty. If you want miso soup,its $1.00. It doesn't take long to get your food. We will go back again soon...
Went with friends on a weekday evening for dinner. We ordered two pizzas, the Prosciutto & Arugula and the Salsiccia, split between the four of us which was enough to fill us up. The pizza was delicious and the service was good. I honestly can't think of any negative comments to say... the price is fair, for downtown Vancouver restaurant prices, since usually pizza is split up between two or more people. Would definitely come here again if I were craving pizza while hanging out with friends downtown.
Myself and two friends ate here last night. The waiter was O.K. Not very personable. Two of us had the Ribs the sauce was wonderful but the Ribs where tough. They came with Mac and Cheese and it was excellent. One of us had the Stir fry with Chicken, not much flavour and the Chicken was tough and very dry. Not sure if I will go again any time soon.
My husband and I came after work. Sat on the "patio" - beautiful glass enclosure and awesome view of the river etc. In a great location with awesome new developments. The buiding itself is spectacuclar - great reclaimed wood, concrete, etc. That's sadly where it ends. What a thud for the amount of money someone shelled out.
Thud 0ne - unisex bathrooms are cutesy and trendy - but I don't want to go to the bathroom and smell man piss on the floor. Thanks anyway.
The menu - I looked and looked and looked again - I could NOT find anything remotely that interested me to order. Olives? Um no thanks. Hot nuts? Cute. The waitress mentioned the "special" burger that was lamb and a bunch of other items. I joked to my husband that I'd order that except hold everything except for the bun and the cilantro. It was like they look my list of everything I hate and put in on one burger.
I did not get the food. Plus all the burger were $12-14 PLUS and sides were extra - no fries or anything included. WOW. We had one drink and left and ate elsewhere. It was more than half empty on a Friday night, so it looks like a lot fo people did the samething
Wow - did Capstone go under new management? The mean Asian lady was no longer there. We walked in today with fantastic service! Was so blown away. I only go there because of the Groupon deal, but now I'm thinking I would go back more often. I hope it is under new management as I loved what I saw today. We had two main servers helping us today and both of them were amazingly nice.
I have been on mediocre terms with this place before, but this time REALLY blew me away. If this service keeps up, I definitely recommend everyone to go!
Went out after my friend's choir concert in Vancouver. My friends raved about the place but didn't seem that special to me.
-It was way too loud inside, hard to hear each other when talking.
-My food was okay but nothing special. Actually I got kind of sick of it and decided to stop eating it because I felt it wasn't seasoned well, tasted very plain.
-The portions are pretty generous. I did notice that the nachos came in a HUGE portion which was nice. My friends loved them, so nachos here are good.
-Price was okay for a bar in Vancouver, but I think I spent too much for food that was pretty plain tasting.
Overall I had a mediocre experience and would have rather spent my money elsewhere.
My friends and I came here last night. Had the nachos, hummus, fondu and sangria. The prices aren't bad for Vancouver restaurants and the food is pretty amazing. Nachos were great, loaded with beans, jalapenos and corn with guacomole, sour cream and salsa on the side. The cheese on the nachos was generous and not too dry. The hummus was super garlicy and the best I've ever tasted. Fondu was good, it's hard to mess up chocolate and fruit. Sangria was yummy, had lots of fruits in it. The portions are fairly large, what we ordered was all enough to fill the 5 of us. The music is just a bit too loud though, I had a hard time hearing what my friends were saying and vice versa.
Overall satisfied, would definitely eat here a second time.
We lucked out and got there before a small line up began forming outside. It seems that some people get seated in a preferential sort of way but the staff were good. The food was a little pricey but pretty good. The location in the city is run down and the restaurant itself really is a dive, but in a good way. It has a cool retro feel and the customers are what you would expect to see along Commercial Drive which is cool. They are relying still on their debut on the Diners, Dives, and Dirt Holes. Once the novelty wears out, they will have to work a little harder and sharpen their pens around price points but overall, it was worth the trip over to this part of town.
I have been to this restaurant 3 times now and each time it was not that great, but the last time was THE WORST! Where to start? First off, when we arrived we were told that their deep fryer was not working today so there were a few things (on their one page menu) that we could not order. Also, due to the fact that they had just rolled out a brand new menu, they were out of a few things or didn't have a few things because they didn't get their shipment or something like that. As a side note, there were about 10 spelling mistakes on their "new menu" really, I am no English major—far from it in fact—but if I was going to print out a menu, I would be darn sure to proof read it before printing them off. Have they not heard of spell check?
Anyway...we were surprised to see that the new menu seemed to be mostly lunch type items, which is not how I like to order when I go for dinner. Who wants a wrap or a Rueben sandwich for a fancy dinner? I know none of the 5 people I was with did. Out of the meals we all ordered, no one thought that theirs was very good at all. Everyone said that they would not be back again. A couple of us shared the Pad Thai and a chickpea salad and I can say I would absolutely not be back for either of them. I woke up with the worse garlic/ginger breath ever after the Pad Thai (there's no ginger in Pad Thai people). And the "highly recommended by our waiter" (who for some reason seemed highly annoyed by our existence for some reason), was totally void of seasoning and acidity. The chickpeas were also a little al dente for our liking.
I could go on, but I am bored with this all now as it was just such a bad experience all around. So while the room is nice and open and clean the food and service were really not good. I will take a dark and dingy diner over a fancy one any day as the food and service are what really matter anyway.
They moved from Harbour Centre food court store. New to Robson street. Welcome. This place is fantastic. Butter Chicken and the Chilli chicken it excellent. Try the mushroom rice and the fresh Naan from the Tandoor oven.
Only $9.00 for 2 meat curries, Mushroom rice, fresh naan and fresh chai. It's lovely. They have modern Indian Naan wraps too. I'm going to try next time for sure.
Although the staff (specially that woman who with the big ear rings and a beautiful smile) is very friendly and helpful. No need to wait. FOOD IS READY. NO NEED MENU OR WAITING TIME. Just look and order.
This is definitely up to the standard of our big Indian restaurants. Try CURRY FUSION. You won't be disappointed. Amazing food.
If you like seafood, you should try this place. It is nice place for a casual dining with friends or family. Prices are reasonable and menu is rich. Unfortunately, patio is small. There is a lot of friendly attendants. The cook is a nice guy and talented. I found the place a bit noisy but I was there during their peak time on Sunday evening. I tried Fish Shack for lunch as well and I liked it. Try their mussels or grilled fish.
This afternoon I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with a premier business client at the Dockside Restaurant in Granville Island. The ambiance was the perfect setting for such lunch and the view of the harbor is beautiful. The service was fantastic and our server was attentive but respectful to our lunch meeting. Although I’m sure Dockside is more noted for its seafood I opted to go with the Dockside burger and it was everything I could ask for and more. It was sided with a delicious Caesar salad topped with fresh parmesan and real crisp chunks of bacon. We were seated inside for our lunch but with a beautiful patio overlooking the water I can see myself enjoying future meals while soaking up some sunshine. I will most definitely return to Dockside and refer my clients to this definite gem of Granville Island dining.
I have been there twice, also celebrated my bday and i had a great time!
The mezcal shots and drinks are awsome, they brought me different kind of cocktails and all were delicious,
As a mexican i can say the food is very good, i loved the queso fundido and the guacamole, the chocolatte mousse its great too.
The service is great, they have very kind people attending the place and the restaurant decoration is awsome I really love it. Very Mexican!! feel like home.
From the moment I walked in, I knew this place would be authentic Mexican. Awesome!! The decor is hip and trendy, with a casual atmosphere, and beautiful wood counters and Mexican ceramic tile floors, like the ones you would see at a hacienda patio. The smell of the food cooking opened our appetites right away. We sat at the bar. My husband had a mezcal flight, which he was pretty impressed with, and I had a tamarind martini. OMG, soooo good!
We ordered ceviche, queso fundido, and tostadas. The ceviche is fresh and delicious, it took me right back to a beach front palapa in PV. But if the ceviche was good, the cheese was amazing! Sizzling in a black rock bowl, served with warm tortillas... yum! I scratched the crunchy cheese that was stuck to the bowl at the end. I could eat this every day. Seriously.
I'll be coming back every month, no, every week....mmmm, ok, maybe daily.
This is a real great place to go for a good cheap breakfast for the price. The portion are a good size and they put out a real tasty breakfast. The place is real clean and bright. The staff is real friendly. We were a large group of 11 and there was lots of room to seat us, the restaurant is a real large room with lots of group seating, and gotta like the cheap caesars on a sunday, helps with the hangovers.
I think before you go to the Rumpus Room, you should realize what its potential is. It's a place you could go to relax with friends and have a meal, yeah... but it can be much more. My scenario involved me and some friends grabbing a couch, pulling out "Sorry" and playing a game. They've got Jenga, Operation, and a few others to play around with while waiting for your meal and drinks.
Whether you're getting fried chicken with waffles and gravy or one of the better hot dogs I've had, this place does comfort food right. The drinks aren't half-bad either, and there's this one involving a pickle... very recommended!
But hey, it's probably not for everybody, but don't be turned off by the swarm of hipsters that congregate around the place at all hours. It's actually a very friendly clientele and staff, that all make you feel welcome. Very communal. Great experience!
I have been going to Nick's for at least 25 years and used to go quite often and the meals were good. I have gone once or twice a a year the last ten years as the food has gone downhill and prices up and had the odd ok meal. every bad one I would tell myself never again. Last visit and it was only 1\3 full. Crappy bread,salad was semi white iceberg, tomatoes and a few shreds of carrots and oil and vinegar dressing. All of our dinners were salty and bland. This time I mean it . Never again!
