Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
Banana Leaf1779 Robson St., Vancouver
There's a lot better out there
By synchro of Vancouver (12 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 23, 2018 - 8:34pm [Take-out]

I ordered Nasi Goreng, Rendang Beef and Roti Canai. My order took 30min. The Roti Canai was quite greasy and the portion of sauce was too small to finish all the roti canai but the sauce was tasty. I also found the Rendang Beef portion small but again nicely spiced and tasty. The container is barely 3" high. The big disappointment was the Nasi Goreng. The rice was clumped and not mixed well and tasteless. The tiny shrimp were few, overcooked and rubbery - all for $45. I've had much better Roti Canai and Nasi Goreng in Vancouver & New West.

Green Leaf Cafe9604 Cameron Street, Burnaby
Delightful lunch at the new place in the neighbourhood!! ---
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 15, 2018 - 10:20am [Dine in]

Green Leaf Cafe opened in our neighbourhood recently, we did a pre-Mother’s Day lunch with daughter & son there yesterday. We arrived at the restaurant just after it had opened its doors at 11:30 am, received welcome greetings upon entering, were shown to a table (w/bench seating on one side, chairs on the other) near the window (views out to Cameron Street, and buildings/greenery over at the Cameron Library/Rec Centre in the background) - menus and tall glasses of cold water quickly followed.

Ambiance: “woody & warm” colours and materials, with ample natural light. Along with some background jazz music, it looked, sounded, and ‘felt’ pleasing.

Service: warm, friendly, and helpfully-attentive throughout our stay.

Food ordered: (Note: I have used names of dishes, and descriptions of ingredients, as per listings provided in the in the restaurant’s menu)

— Spicy Seafood Salad - daily fresh diced sashimi, seasonal greens, Korean style spicy sauce & yuzu ponzu vinaigrette — ‘Bulgogi’ Beef Platter (beef teriyaki) - sweet soy marinated charcoal grilled sliced beef (w/dipping sauce, rice, small potatoes, fresh lettuce greens, w/sliced radish, sprouts, and green beans) — Prawn Fritter (prawn tempura) - deep fried battered prawns (w/dipping sauce) — Green Leaf Signature “Aburi” Platter - six kinds signature aburi oshi: salmon, basil prawn, yukke tuna, mackerel, scallop, and aburi tobiko (w/garnishes of sprouts, sliced olives and hot peppers, pickled ginger, sauces, spices/herbs, and etc).

Dishes arrived in a timely and ‘the’ appropriate sequence. Salad was first, and I believe we all let out rather loud “wows” when it was put on the table - so good looking! And preparation a big yum - ingredients so fresh, bright, and cool, with sauce, dressing, and spices very flavourful and tasty. The prawn tempura arrived next - it looked good, and tasted the same - batter was perfect ’see-through-light’ in texture, and crispy, prawns, large, tender, and sweet. Ordered for Mom (I snuck a taste), she savoured it. The beef teriyaki and aburi platters arrived last, with both presentations receiving appreciative ’wows’. Their preparations offered a fine assortment of distinctive textures, flavours, and tastes - each was well-received and enjoyed. The teriyaki beef was a dish ordered at Mom’s request, but shared by all - everything on the platter well-prepared, and the beef especially tender & sweet. I ordered the signature aburi platter, thought daughter and I just ‘had’ to see and experience it - we, and the others, were not disappointed - the makings were very decently-prepared, flavours and tastes much-enjoyed - it was a “fun” treat.

With our thanks, and good wishes to the hosts, our first time visit to Green Leaf was a most-delightful, and fun dining experience. Welcome to the hood!!

Sushi U5901 E Broadway, #5, Burnaby
A fun and delightful sushi dining experience!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 10:08am [Dine in]

Sushi U was chosen as a go to place for lunch. We arrived and found a parking spot near the restaurant a few minutes before its opening time of 11 am. Staff warmly-welcomed us inside.  We (threesome) were shown to a larger, corner table, provided menus, place settings, and then brought some large mugs of hot tea to enjoy while we pondered what to order.

It's a small place, clean, neat, and tidy in appearance. The tables are arranged around the perimeter, and most can be moved and re-arranged to accommodate from one and two diners, to small-sized groups.    

Our server was a delight during our visit, and took good care of us.            

The food: note:  I thought my ordering was likely a little heavy for the three of us, but with it being a first time visit, I wanted to try a number of dishes, and it worked well - with a few leftovers to bring home, but most dishes cleared.  Hot tea (a light & flavourful blend) was supplied at no extra charge.

— Appetizers:  geso karage (breaded squid tentacles), coroke (breaded potato croquette), ebi (prawn) gyoza — Noodle:  veggie yaki soba (soba noodles, w/mostly bean sprouts and small pieces of cabbage, a few green beans and carrot pieces) — Teriyaki:  tofu teriyaki (deep fried tofu, w/teriyaki sauce, on a bed of bean sprouts and a little rice) — Donburi:  chirashi don (assorted sashimi, on mostly shredded daikon and a tossed green salad, w/ side bowl of steamed rice) — Sashimi:  tako (octopus) sashimi (slices of octopus tentacle, on shredded daikon) — Nigiri Sushi:  aburi sampler ('flamed' nigiri sushi - salmon, tuna, ebi, tai, saba, and hotate, w/special sauces, and spices) — Roll:  California roll — and two "extras" our hosts provided without charge:  samples of chicken karage (breaded chicken pieces, w/a sweet & sour-like sauce), and ice cream tempura for dessert (a nice touch, much-appreciated!!).

The food dishes came from kitchen to table in good sequence, in good portions, and looking colourful and appealing. Preparations were very good -- warm dishes, were warm, cold dishes, were cool -- breaded coverings thin, crispy, and flavourful, sauces tasty, and stocks not greasy or salty, quite 'light' and flavourful -- tofu and noodles well-prepared - tofu pieces so creamy, noodles not overcooked -- chirashi don very good, ingredients so colourful, fresh, and tasty - the California rolls as well -- sashimi in the don, and octopus sashimi, perfect, so fresh and flavourful, and the aburi nigiri sushi a taste treat, with melt-in-your-mouth goodness -- the 'extras', well-prepared, and yummy, the ice cream tempura a nice, cool way to end the meal.

Our lunch at Sushi U was a fun, and delightful dining experience — friendly, personable hosts and service, with well-presented and prepared food.  And all served up in a small, ’cool’ and neat restaurant, in a small, local neighbourhood setting -- definitely our kind of place!

Ikoi Sushi450 E Columbia St, #105, New Westminster
A big favourite of ours for Japanese food dining!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 3, 2018 - 9:17am [Dine in]

Ikoi is one of our favourite go to places for a Japanese food dining experience. We returned for dinner recently, arriving a few minutes after it opening time of 4 pm. A nice bonus when dining there, there’s free parking available in the lot.

Food and service:  as has always been our experience there, the Chef performed his 'magic' with the food preparations and presentations, and service was so friendly and accommodating - here's what we (as threesome) ordered, shared, and enjoyed this time:

— spicy agedashi tofu — ika sugatayaki (sliced, bbq whole squid — prawns tempura — assorted sashimi — roll combo (dynamite, California, and BC (salmon) rolls — kaki fry (deep-fried oysters) — chicken yakisoba —  unlimited, hot green tea (provided, at no extra charge). With the exception of the yakisoba, these were all dishes we have ordered and enjoyed at previous dinings there

Nice presentations, and very well-made preparations. The tofu was delicious, so sweet & creamy, with just the right amount of hot & spicy sauce — daughter and I were looking forward to the squid, and this tender & tasty preparation sure did not disappoint — Mom sure enjoyed the prawns tempura and deep-fried oysters - they were ordered mostly for her, and the preparations were right on (daughter and I confirmed that with a taste or two) — the rolls were fantastic - thin rice coverings and tasty, quality ingredients - major yum — the sashimi was for daughter and I - it was served at the perfect temperature, and so fresh-tasting — the yakisoba was a small touch disappointing - the chicken was tender & juicy, noodles nicely cooked, the preparation though, was a little oily, and just seemed to lack the distinctive flavour & taste we've been used to with other yakisoba preparations (a very small criticism though, as we did not leave anything on the plate to return to the kitchen).

Once again, our dining experience at Ikoi Sushi proved why it has become such a favourite of ours.  It's a small, local neighbourhood, Japanese family-owned and operated restaurant, and these nice people have been putting it all together so consistantly-well since they opened a few years ago.  And good on them for their much-appreciated efforts!!

Taverna Greka Waterfront Restaurant326 Columbia Street, New Westminster
Tasty Greek fare and great view - a much-enjoyed lunch experience!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 30, 2018 - 10:41am [Dine in]

The usual “early-birds” when my lady and I dine out for lunch, we arrived at the restaurant shortly after it opened at 11am.

We received friendly, welcome greetings upon entering, and were shown to a window table, about mid-restaurant in location, so had very commanding upriver and downriver views of the Fraser River, and sights (and sounds) of the various activities taking place on the River itself, and adjacent waterfront areas. With clear, bright and sunny weather on-the-go at the time, it was a quite spectacular setting for our lunch.

Service to our table was prompt, helpful (especially with a few questions we had re: lunch menu offerings), and very pleasant throughout our stay.

We ordered and shared a lunch platter for two — which came with starters of pita bread, tzatziki (yogurt w/garlic and cucumber), and Greek salad — and the platter, with two portions each of lamb souvlaki (pieces of lamb on skewers), spanakopita (spinach wrap, asked for, to replace the tyropita, cheese wrap, as listed on the menu for this platter), soutzoukia (meatballs), roasted potatoes, and rice. And I ordered a pint of Steal & Oak amber ale, to enjoy with my starter.

Everything looked so good, and we were treated to some fine food preparations. From our initial tastes of the starters (fresh ’cool’ salad, soft-textured pita bread, and ‘zippy’ tzatziki), through to last tastes of the main platter offerings (everything so well-prepared - lamb tender and flavourful, wrap lightly-crispy outside, spinach and other stuff, moist inside, yummy-spiced meatballs, roasted potatoes, and that wonderful rice), we found the distinctive flavours and tastes truly-captured our senses.

With the good food and service, nice ambiance, and wonderful view, our lunch dining experience was definitely “as good as it gets” for us!!

Submitted Monday, April 30, 2018 - 10:17am [Dine in]

Birthday meal number two - did daughter's our first visit to the restaurant, it was now my turn. We (senior couple & daughter) arrived at the restaurant about 3 pm, were greeted as we entered, and shown to a table at back (yea, some familiarity, the table we had last time). Menus were left, hot tea (teapot and cups) arrived quickly. Now what to order - to be able to try several dishes, and celebrate the event?      

What we decided upon — sliced pork in chili & garlic sauce - appetizer, served cold dish (pretty presentation, spicy, very tasty and flavourful) — wonton soup (warm, flavourful ingredients and stock) — honey & garlic spareribs ('dry' ribs, sweet & tangy) — prawn with black bean sauce (colourful, tender, sweet-tasting prawns, red & green bell peppers, onion, tasty/flavourful sauce) — Shanghai style fried noodles (well-prepared noodles, a few veggies, tasty and flavourful) — lamb with ginger & green onion (tender pieces of lamb, w/ginger & green onion, quite strong tasting, and flavourful) — braised tofu with vegetables (sweet & creamy large pieces of tofu, w/red & green bell peppers, mushrooms, and tasty/flavourful sauce).

Wow, and yum!! Everything as we had hoped it would be — friendly, timely service, and we were able to share a fine and varied selection of tasty and distinctly-flavourful dishes.  I over-ordered a touch, but heh, it was my birthday!! and the leftovers taken home, provided such a tasty, lunch snack the next day!

Rivers Reach Pub320 6th St., New Westminster
Early-lunch, pub-style, worked well for us!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2018 - 10:26am [Dine in]

Daughter and I were in New Westminster on business one morning recently.  I offered to treat to lunch - we decided a pub lunch would/could be fun.  She recommended the River's Reach - it was handy, our timing was 'right', it was 11:20 am, open, and yea, found a parking space on the street, right there, on the side.  

I really liked the "look and feel" of the place -- nice spacing of table arrangements, with almost separated areas, and different types of seating (standard tables and chairs, high tables and stools, etc.).  We chose a (standard-type) table, at the front side of the restaurant, near the back.      

I ordered a pint of Rickard's Red draft (they're Tuesday 'special'), and clubhouse sandwich (on toasted white bread, came w/turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato), and fries -- daughter (the driver) opted for ice water, and a large baked lasagna (came w/mozzarella cheese, and meat sauce, and at her request, some pineapple), and garlic toast.

Friendly, accommodating service, with some rather fine-looking food presentations, and tasty, well-made preparations.  She enjoyed her lasagna (leaving a little to go back home for later), and I sure enjoyed my sandwich (leaving nothing to go back to the kitchen, or away with me).  

This was a first time visit for me, and based on the dining experience, we made a fine decision, and I was most happy with daughter's choice of venue.

Mika Sushi1049 Ridgeway Avenue, Coquitlam

By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2018 - 9:35am [Dine in]

Mika Sushi was our go to place for an early-dinner recently - a first time dining experience. We (senior couple & daughter) arrived shortly after 4 pm, and found parking on the street outside the restaurant. We received a nice “welcome” shout from the staff upon entry, and a server showed us to booth seating adjacent one of the side walls - once seated, a teapot of hot tea, mugs, and menus arrived at our table. Yeah, we were now left to browse the menu, and enjoy some tea.

Service to our table was fine - our server always had a nice smile, and kept our teapot full. But when ordering, I did find her knowledge and help with the menu sure seemed quite limited. With this being a first time dining experience there, I had hoped for a touch more help in assessing ’particulars’ on some dishes I was considering (mostly an observation though, and only a very minor complaint).

What was ordered and shared — Appetizers: ika karaage, deep fried oysters, and agedashi tofu — Tempura: yam and prawn — Sushi & Rolls: deluxe assorted sushi & roll combo - nigiri sushi (red tuna, ika, salmon, hamachi, amaebi, hokkigai, chopped scallop, massago, and uni roll sushi (tekka, salmon).

Rather nice presentations — dish portion sizes though, a touch on the small’ish side — but very fresh-looking, flavourful, and tasteful ingredients, and all well-prepared. A big yum!!

We enjoyed our first dining experience at Mika Sushi. But note for the next time — order more!!

IT Char Burger800 McBride Blvd, #29, New Westminster
Tasty burgers and great fries for breakfast!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2018 - 11:41am [Dine in]

In New Westminster one morning for medical appointments, and had time to kill between tests, so headed over to Royal Square Mall to check out the burgers at IT Char Burger. We (threesome) arrived at the Mall about 9:30 am.

The ‘restaurant’ (food-court stall) is located inside and way at the very back of the Mall — we parked near the Mall’s main entrance, and entered there. Note: if you wish to skip the walk inside the Mall, the restaurant itself is most-easily/readily accessible via a side entrance to the Mall located right by the entrance to Safeway.

I asked the owner if it was too early to order burgers - “No, I can make you burgers.” - was his reply, and what we wanted to hear. So we were good to go!

At this still rather early time of day, their signature burger (IT char burger) looked way too big for the time, and our appetites, so with a helpful recommendation from the owner, we opted for smaller single meat patty burgers, and ordered three cheeseburgers, but via the lunch ‘combo’ (i.e., with fries & drink), so that we could taste what was anticipated to be some great fries.

Our food came out of the kitchen totally made-to-order. The burgers well-made - buns toasted, the inside ingredients plentiful, fresh, tasty, and juicy — definitely requiring a couple of napkins to fully-enjoy!! The fries were great, and all they have been cracked up to be — lightly-battered and seasoned, and cooked perfectly.

It was a fun dining experience. Food-court burgers and fries for breakfast, certainly far from our usual fare to start the day, but for this day, a rather nice, tasty, and much-enjoyed treat. A cool little place, and based on our initial taste, very capable of serving up some rather well-prepared food stuff.

Khob Khun Thai Cuisine1143 Austin Ave., Coquitlam
Thai for lunch, and it was so good!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, April 27, 2018 - 12:28pm [Dine in]

Khob Khun was our destination for lunch, a first time visit, and it provided a most-enjoyable dining experience.  We (senior couple & daughter) arrived at the restaurant at 11 am, opening time, and easily found a space to park in the area provided along one side of the restaurant.  We were warmly-welcomed inside by the server and shown to a table by the front window (view out to Austin Ave).  Mugs of hot tea and menus (two menus - full menu, and lunch 'specials' menu) quickly followed.  First impressions of the restaurant once seated and able to get a look about -- bright, cheerful, simply, but colourfully-furnished, clean, neat, and tidy, warm, and for us, provided an almost immediate nice 'homey' feel.  

Service was friendly and personal throughout our stay, and as required, attentive, and helpful, especially when ordering, being rather new to Thai food, our server's friendly help was much-appreciated.  

What was ordered and shared:    (please note:  actual names, and descriptions of food dishes provided, are theirs, as per the menu listings.)

-  Tea:  Green Tea - mugs and teapot (w/refills).
-  Appetizers:  Calamari (Squid) - deep fried rings, served with sweet chili sauce -- Tao Hu Tod - deep fried tofu, served with sweet and sour sauce topped with ground peanut.
-  Noodles:  Khao Soi (Curry Noodles) - egg noodles with sliced chicken, northern Thai style curry sauce topped with crispy egg noodle, green onion, and cilantro, served with red onion, pickles, lime, and chili oil.
-  Stir Fries:  Pad Khing - with pork, ginger, mushroom, bell peppers, onion, and green onion -- Drunken Seafood - mixed seafood, with fresh chili, onion, bell peppers, kaffir lime leaves, and Thai sweet basil.
-  Rice:  Steamed Rice - small bowl.

Presentations looked so good - colourful and pretty on the white backgrounds of the differently-shaped, and rather nice serving dishes.  And especially noted, the various dishes came to our table in 'the' appropriate sequence --  appetizers first - with sufficient time allowed for us to savour and enjoy each - dishes cleared, and then the three entree dishes and side dish of rice -- perfect!!

Preparations (we asked for 'mild, spicy') - tasting the various foods sure backed up those lovely-looking (have to say "mouth-watering") presentations -- high quality ingredients, so fresh, and well-prepared, and to-the-mark with 'heat' of the spices and other flavourings used - for us, just right to truly-savour and enjoy the distinctive flavours of each.  And we had such a good and wide-range of offerings to sample -- seafoods, tofu, meat, poultry, veggies, sauces, and garnishes -- to get a really great first taste of some of the many tastes and flavours of their Thai preparations.

Our dining at Khob Khun was a delight.  I believe we really experienced the 'love & care' the owners and staff put into the operations, and food preparations of their great little restaurant in Austin Heights.

Friend’s was chosen as the venue for my lady’s birthday lunch recently. We parked right in front of the entrance just after the restaurant opened at 11 am. Upon entering, received friendly, welcome greetings from staff, and like a previous visit, chose to sit at a booth alongside the restaurant’s front window. Mugs of hot tea and menus arrived as we snuggled into our seats, the tea providing a nice, welcome warm-up, as we were allowed the time wished to cruise the quite extensive menus.

Service was friendly and cordial, and very helpful, especially when it came time to place our order. We needed some advice from our server in the ‘what’ and ‘how to have prepared’ of a couple of dishes, and the help and suggestions were much-appreciated.

What we (senior couple & daughter) ordered, and shared — all dishes came from kitchen to table in a timely fashion & sequence, with portions sizes very generous, presentations looking good, and sure perking our senses and appetites!!

— BBQ 2-Meat Combo, Duck and Pork chosen, came with side dish of dipping sauce — Pan-Fried Rice Rolls in Soy Sauce, w/dipping soy sauce, and green onions & bean sprouts as garnish — Steamed Squid with Gai Lan, garnished with some sliced mushroom and carrot — Steamed Tofu with Seafood, soft tofu, w/shrimp, squid, and fish, sliced okra, mushroom, carrot, and etc., and a tasty sauce — Thai-Style Fried Rice with Chicken, w/green onion, and flavourful herbs and spices.

A big ‘yes’ to the dishes selected — they provided a nice mix of seafoods, meats, poultry, rice, and veggies, along with their distinctive textures, wonderful flavours, and tastes. Absolutely no complaints with any of the preparations — all ingredients well-prepared, warm, tasty, and flavourful. A big first taste and texture surprise/treat was the tofu & seafood dish — such a creamy delight!!

Our dining experience at Friend’s was a lot of fun and much-enjoyed — well-prepared food, and friendly, quality service — and most-importantly, the “birthday girl” had a great time!!

After completing a couple of appointments in New Westminster, The Old Spaghetti Factory was picked as the spot for lunch. We (senior couple & daughter) arrived just before the restaurant opened at 11:30 am - and once inside, chose booth seating along an inside wall. Despite the restaurant’s familiar location, for such a long time, this was a first time dining experience.

We found the ambiance inside to be ‘fun’ colourful, cheerful, and decorative — providing a nice ‘sync’ with our moods of the day. Table service was friendly, personal, and attentive throughout our stay. When asked if we wished anything to drink, daughter surprised us, and ordered sangrias (their ’classic red’ was chosen) — a nice treat, and cool start to our meals!

Entree selections were made from the list of - ‘it’s all included’ Lunch Specials: for Mom: lasagna, with green salad, hot tea, and spumoni ice cream — for daughter: pasta & greens - baked spaghetti w/meat sauce, and caesar salad, minestrone soup, spumoni ice cream, and coffee — for me: chicken clubhouse sandwich, green salad, and spumoni ice cream. The dishes were nicely-presented, portions very generously-sized, and foods & beverages decently-prepared.

Our first dining experience at The Old Spaghetti Factory was fun — we really enjoyed the atmosphere and surroundings within the restaurant, service provided was great, and the food a solid ‘ok’.

It was difficult to make just one selection from the menu. With an experience this satisfying, it is going to be easy to come back and try more!

Dissapointed Family Dinner

Submitted Monday, April 16, 2018 - 1:13am [Dine in]

We choose this neighborhood restaurant for the 'fine' reviews to dine with family while visiting Vancouver. The people were friendly but we found the establishment to be more 'rustic' that the pictures. The fly strips didn't quite add to the ambiance either.
We didn't bring a Spanish interpreter for the waitress thus we didn't understand much of what the meals were, and some of the orders were mixed up. Food was decent, hot & well displayed.
In the end though, the meal prices were actually more than the menu prices.
So, for the hard wooden chairs, sticky tables & bitter tasting water we shall avoid this restaurant in the future.
However, you may enjoy the establishment as it was a busy place.

The manager was really rude to us, ignored us, would rather talk to her bartender friend than actually provide service. Saw the manager and her bartender outside smoking weed as we were coming in as well, which is pretty unprofessional.

The food was ok and the drink prices weren't bad but when there are so many options in the area, why would you pick a place with horrible service?

Don't go here.

The owner, Lehmber Lally, who is the brother in law of Ranjit (Ron) Dhanda, who is well known in the lower mainland for his questionable business practices to say the least. Does a terrible job running his Subway restaurants. The staff is rude the food is often expired not to mention tasteless. I am surprised that Subway Canada continues to allow him to operate any Subway locations. Perhaps Mr. Lally is taking a page out of Mr. Dhanda's playbook?!?!

I recently visited the above Vietnamese restaurant and found out their Vietnamese cuisines are quite outstanding, especially the noodle is quite decent and tasty. My family members from Asia like the noodle with chicken. They said that the spice seems a bit different from others, which made them remember their time in Asia.

I would visit there again, as the prices are reasonable with good value on food.
