Newly opened authentic Japanese restaurant (Japanese chef with many many years experience).
This is one for the true sushi/sashimi aficionados out there. Click on the link for their facebook or twitter as they have some great pics of what they offer and continuous updates on which seasonal/special fish they have currently have available.
This is a place I go to with my partner when we want to be pampered with home cooking. Yes the dishes are solid and the prices are quite high but we really go there for the one older blond waitress with the curly blond pony tail.
She is friendly and very service oriented and always remembers us! I appreciate that.
Nice to go to Nick's and feel much better about life afterwards.
We are so hooked on the pizza we rarely order anything else. The pizzas are thin crust, fresh ingredients and exactly the right amount of topping is placed on them. They have a good wine selection too. The service is good, always friendly and efficient.
My favourite pizza these days is the Diavolo, spicy, juicy and crispy. I ate in today but we often get takeout and that is well done. They serve lunch and dinner. Closed on Mondays. Oh, Thursday is 50% off wine.
The chicken and pork sandwiches are fresh and delicious. Excellent salsa, tasty salads. And really welcoming, friendly service. They go out of their way to accommodate additional requests. If you haven't been do yourself a favour and go pick up some Boca. They also have some add ons like chips, sauces and beverages.
This is a great sushi restaurant with very good service and reliably good food every time you come in to dine. This can be during very busy lunch hours, late at night or slow Tuesday afternoons.
The biggest problem is parking. Across the street is a shopping mall and if you choose to park there during the day, be very carefull when you cross the busy 6 lanes street,
One of, if not the best sushi places in Vancouver, their menu is full of suprises.
Some well traveled people say that Burmese food is the best food in the world... this is the best Burmese food in Vancouver. Therefore, one could reason, this may be the best--no exaggeration--best restaurant food in town for any cost. My taste buds certainly agreed. The rating of 5 for the food is an understatement--definitely 6 out of 5 quality. Wow! This is literally my favorite food in the world. This little new restaurant on Victoria @ 35th.
Minimalist decor, very friendly. Left huge tip. I love supporting small family businesses.
Bring an appetite and randomly pick items off the menu and you won't be disappointed. I went with a group and we had a large variety of all great food and some outstanding dishes.
Went for a couple of quick slices of pizza. Their pizza tasted very good and had lots of choices. This place is busy so they are constantly make new pizza. The service was also very good. The pizza tasted good and they had many choices. Lots of toppings on the pizza. Will go back if i am in the area.
Went for breakfast on the weekend and the place was not too busy. The server was funny but he was using the same lines with other customer. Service was slow. We ordered eggs and these were just ok. Hash browns were hard as rock. I would not go back as there are better places for breakfast. Maybe lunch might be ok. They did have their regular people walking in so maybe others like a place like this. I would not waste my time going to this place. Also, the jam and butter were from Superstore - No Name stuff.
After reading about this place online I was wanting to try these Mexican Torta sammies. Went in and ordered two sandwiches off the board. At 4 dollars how could you go wrong? Well. As I took my number and waited I got talking to some regulars who told me to try the Fried Chicken and that it was to die for. Got one Spicy and one Regular breast. Hands down the best friend chicken I have ever had. The best. The sammies were totally lacking. Threw out most of the two. Smallest amount of meat and an obscene amount of lettuce. I wont be getting the Chicken or the Shredded beed one again any time soon. Was totally bummed about the tortas... but the CHICKEN! TO DIE FOR!
PS: Coconut Cream Donut.... yummy too!
We had the pleasure of stumbling across this charming place and were instantly drawn in by the beautiful decor! Our coffees were absolutely delicious (I had a latte and my husband a mocha). Not only were the beverages amazing looking, but the flavor was exceptional! We had the pleasure of enjoying coffee like this in Indonesia and now to find a place such as this, where they roast their own beans in house, we are excited to have found our new favorite. Can't wait for our next cup and will be sure to enjoy another dessert from the beautiful selection of home-made goodies! Delicious!
Went to buy some spot prawns and thought why not, let's get a po'boy to split!
Now if you've ever had a Real Po'boy from the south you will be so disappointed with this place
Pan seared oysters on a burger bun, sloppy, wet, and completely awful.
The only po'boy that justifies reality is deep fried oysters on a nice soft white bun, lettuce onions and
Nice tarter sauce
This was as far from a po'boy as possible, I would never order this from this place again
Should have had the fish and chips, looked yummy, but we really wanted oysters ,,,,,,,,big disappointment!
Aside from waiting 25 min, I wish they could have made a REAL po'boy. Emeril would have been disgusted!
Values for money? Awful $10.50 for 3 steamed oysters on a total sogged out bun, anyway, they should try MY po'boy, it'll make you drool!
Never be back!
Have tried Handi many times. Food tastes pretty good but a bit on the salty side. Even though menu pricing seemed reasonable, I found the portions to be way too small. Naan bread was very good however that has to be at any Indian restaurant. Other dishes were pretty standard tasting and lacked presentation.
Gem of an Indian restaurant in Vancouver. Eaten food in this restaurant twice already, and I’ve never had a bad meal here (the first time was take-out.)
Food is served hot and fresh, and good sized. I’m not young enough to have so much spice in my food but I still had a tasty meal. Their vegetables pakoras and samosas are good (not too greasy), as well as their tandoori chicken. One thing I recently tried but really liked was their kofta, which was like a meatball.
Nice place, dirt cheap. I’ve been here a couple of times with my friends. The locale is a bit small, but the quality of the food makes up for it. Definitely not a high-end place. If you have vegan or vegetarian friends, this is the place to go. No meat is served here, which is a miss, but the food is still good nonetheless. The ingredients are also fresh. Go for the enchiladas. They are handmade and simply delicious. I’d also recommend you try the stella tacos.
I absolutely love this place! This is the third time I come to Handi's. Service was perfect the first time around when I came with my boyfriend. The food did not disappoint either. Their chicken tikka masala was perfectly cooked, as well as their aloo gobi. Their butter chicken, however, beats all the rest. It is the best, IMO. Whenever I come here, I always order it. The chefs here really know how to make it good. Portions are good and they give you good value for your money. I'm glad I found this place.
We have eaten at the Raincity several times over the last ten years, and have noticed a progressive deterioration over that period. Last night the deterioration crossed the tipping point - like the Canucks, its time for the Raincity Grill to be reworked from the top down.
The menu could only be described as pedestrian - yes, you are trying for a < 100 mile menu, but this does not excuse such a limited and poverty-stricken set of choices. Appetizers - my wife had the Kushi oysters - they were presented with no imagination and they just weren't that good. I ordered the terrine and was informed that they had none, also the original squash soup was out. The waiter recommended a Caeser salad - really? I had the replacement soup, the mint pea soup, it was OK.
We looked at the 4-5 choices for mains, decided that none of them held any interest for us (steak, halibut, pink salmon, yawn...) so we drank up and left.
The ambiance in the place was, to be frank, depressing. The staff were simply going throught the motions, competently, but with no heart at all. The room simply felt dead. It felt like going to see a team, formerly with great ambition and promise, that had simply allowed themselves to descend into irrelevance.
Somebody save this place - it used to be a place worth taking an out of town visitor. Until it saves itself, stay away.
I went to Handi's on Dunbar the other day with my husband. We wanted to try something different so I suggested this place.
While the food was not organic, it had this fresh taste to it, which was great. I tried the vegetable pakora as an appetizer but also stole some vegetable samosa from my husband. The pakora was interesting but I think I liked their samosa more.
For the meals, I had the eggplant bharta (not really sure if this is the correct spelling) while Mike, my husband ordered the shahi paneer and aloo gobi. The taste was simply splendid. I did not know you could cook eggplant that way! It was interesting. The food was not spicy which was good.
The service was also good. The waiters were extremely polite and were very patient with us and all the questions we had about the food. They also gave us suggestions as to what to order.
I'm glad I chose this restaurant. We had a wonderful time here and I am putting it on my list of places to go back. It will take time for me to get truly accustomed to Indian food but so far, so good!
This was my first time to Edible Canada, so I decided to try it out after hearing the hype. Service was very slow,and we waited quite a long time for our food, and by the time we received it, our wine glasses were almost empty. The table next to us sent several items back to the kitchen. My fish was not very tender, and the steak was not very warm.
For the price of the food I would expect a lot more. The quality was more like a national food chain.
Joe's is usually the place I go to when I have skipped breakfast and want to have a quick lunch with my friends and gossip between classes.
Their ranchero specialty is my favorite for breakfast, or brunch. Its like a mash up of eggs (scrambled), beans, cheese and tomatoes. A little weird, I know, but good nonetheless. Its kinda like one of those things that are weird but you have to try out? If you're not one of those adventurous types of people when it comes to food, then there's normal things on the menu for you as well, like omelettes and pancakes.
This place is always full but I really like it. Whenever I want some dim sum, I go here (which is like once a week).
One thing I should let people know is that the portions are huge! Which is good if you're starving like me most of the time.
What I like about Happy Valley is that the menu is varied. There are some crazy items on the menu such as donut noodle rolls...no kidding. I usually get the shrimp spring roll or the shrimp dumpling. Those are the best, imo.
The service is quick and neat, not messy like in other dum sum or Chinese restaurants. The prices can be a little high in comparsion to other restaurants but I think the size of the food makes up for it. So yeah, check this place out!
