The food quality is fantastic in this restaurant. The environment also is cozy and nice looking. the staffs are friendly and polite. I have been here several times and I want to go back again and again and again. If you like persian food, this is the place you should go.

White Spot1476 Kingsway, Vancouver
A wrinkle in time
By jsmoore of Vancouver (6 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 9, 2014 - 8:44pm [Dine in]

For anyone that has lived in BC, White Spot is a classic. I, like most people, have fond memories of it from my childhood, as it was THE family restaurant. Which kid did not want a Pirate Pack? Anyways, back to the point, I hadn't been to a White Spot location for a while so I decided to revisit their Kingsway location.

I had the mediterranean chicken burger and it was alright, nothing WOW. Looking back, I should’ve ordered the legendary with its triple O or something! I don’t know if I was expecting too much but even their fries were a bit damp...The service was a little slow but I’ll give it to them this time because it was sort of packed when I was there. I'll have to come again to see if their food has worsened or not.

BBT Cafe5979 West Boulevard, Vancouver
Go for the tea
By dianalee of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 8, 2014 - 9:09am [Dine in]

Good place for bubble tea, although it gets crazy packed sometimes! Especially during lunch time...I usually just go to BBT for a quick snack (I’m crazy about their spicy dumplings), but the service is always a disappointment. It is usually a struggle to get the staff to acknowledge you, and then, once they do, to get your order placed. As for the way they treat you, geez, its usually borderline rude. I keep going back though for their bubble tea. The passion fruit is delicious (and strong!), and the Taro is a classic. The teas are pretty sweet, especially the passion fruit, but one of the best in Vancouver.

Wallflower, The2420 Main Street, Vancouver
Cool and hip
By eileenf of Olympia, Washington (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 7:36am [Dine in]

The Wallflower is quite a unique restaurant because it has such an artsy, hip look. The little details make the place fun (coffee is served in random mugs). They also play very good music (it is LOUD, but to be expected from the dark look of the restaurant). As for the food, it is a delight. The pesto chicken wrap with fries was absolutely tasty and not greasy. The spinach salad was also highly enjoyable; it came with yummy goat cheese and tofu.

I am not vegan but it was a nice surprise to see so many vegan dishes on the menu, so if you are vegan, this is definitely the place to come to. One thing you should take a note of is that they only accept cash or credit, not debit. Kind of weird.

Kobe Japanese Steak House1042 Alberni Street, Vancouver
We had a great time!
By amelia.s of WhiteRock, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 2:53pm [Dine in]

I'm not sure what's up with the reviews, but we had a great time at Kobe. There was a ton of food, it was fresh and delicious and the show was killer. Yes, it is a bit on the pricey side, but so are all the restaurants surrounding Kobe. Definitely a special occasion place, but the show makes it entirely worth while.

Blarney Stone216 Carrall Street, Vancouver
Don't go for the food
By louie of Vancouver (5 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 11:07am [Dine in]

I’ve got to admit I was having my doubts about this place before coming here. When you have in mind ‘dinner’, the last place you want to go to is a pub. But because I was with my boyfriend and his friends, I had no other choice but to tag along.

The pub is truly Irish – as soon as you walk in, you’ll see Irish signs everywhere (Guinness, etc.). The number of 20-something year old's was overwhelming, and made me feel old. The food, as I was expecting it to be, was so-so. I had yam fries and blarney burger. The burger seemed sloppily put together and lacked taste. Had it not been for the shepherd's pie I would have deducted another star.

Cactus Club Cafe1530 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Frequent Visits
By Triedit of Metro Vancouver (37 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, August 6, 2014 - 10:15am [Dine in]

The food is reliable which one expects with chain restaurants. The service has always been quite good at this location and I enjoy dropping in for lunch from time to time. I enjoy the dry ribs, short rib sandwich, burgers and salads. The Fawlty Tower martini is an occasional treat to enjoy.

I will suggest reviewing the bill carefully as I failed to do so last visit and ended paying what I believe was quite a bit more for what I had. I didn't really even look at it until the credit card bill arrived and wondered how The dry ribs appetizer ($10.75) with add on Caesar salad mini (not on menu but usually charged ($4.00) and one regular Fawlty Tower Martini ($9.00) plus tax and tip ended up being over $41.00. My best guess is I was charged for something I did not have or maybe charged for the full sized salad meal which I did not have. Altogether for an appetizer, mini appetizer salad and one martini that is expensive.

Overall though it is a decent place to eat, just double check your bill when it arrives. I usually do but was careless that day and paid for it.

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
There's no other place for Ramen than Kintaro
By kudagawa of Vancouver, BC (8 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 3:39pm [Dine in]

Kintaro Ramen gives you the perfect combination of good food at a good price. It is the place I go to devotedly if I want ramen. The shio ramen is unparalleled - it comes with green onions, bean sprouts and BBQ pork. The place is kind of crowded and many times you have to share table with others, but I don't mind. A lot of people complain that it gets too hot inside but its like they say, you get what you pay for!

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Could have been better
By dneel of Tulsa, Oklahoma (5 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 2:28pm [Dine in]

While this place is highly rated as one of the best for Afghan food in Vancouver, I would have to disagree. I have been to other Afghan restaurants and they did not taste like a mediterranean/Greek spin off! This cannot be the best that there is in Vancouver.

Don't get me wrong; some of their plates, like the lamb shoulder, were good but, it just didn't taste Afghan. And for the prices being charged, I think I deserved better. I mean, some of the food seemed to be prepared haphazardly: the rice was a little hard and seemed to be undercooked.

I don't mean to be entirely negative, as there were some good things about this restaurant as well (service, environment) but for me, the food was a deal breaker.

Adesso Bistro1906 Haro Street, Vancouver
Mixed feelings about this place
By lucyca of burnaby and vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 12:42pm [Dine in]

This is definitely a place I can only afford to go to on special occasions. What first impacts you about this restaurant is its ambience. There is an outdoor patio that is lovely and quite romantic. Make sure you have a reservation before coming here because it does get rather busy sometimes, especially for dinner.

Onto the food now…I played it safe and ordered nothing out of the extraordinary. The food was not exceptional; I found the gnocchi to be a little lackluster in taste. The wine list is pretty extensive and if you are not a wine expert like myself, it can be a little overwhelming! The waiter helped me out though. I really liked dessert; I had the cioccolato and it was fabulous. I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I am a little biased in that sense, but even my boyfriend, who isn’t, liked it.

So I'm having mixed feelings about this place. The food never makes me go "wow", especially for its price, but the ambience + dessert + drinks make up for it.

Amato Gelato Cafe78 East 1st Ave, Vancouver
Good gelato but long wait
By lucyca of burnaby and vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 11:36am [Dine in]

There's nothing like some good old gelato when its summer. This place has an amazing amount of gelato to chose from: over 70 flavours last time I asked! I always go for an unexpected and crazy flavor, like hedgehog or green tea. While the staff is normally friendly and courteous, the huge line and wait is always a bummer.

Besides that, I wish they would update their whole payment process. They don't take credit cards which can be a pain, as I usually don't carry cash with me. Prices are not cheap, so why make it more difficult to pay?
