Metro Vancouver Restaurant Reviews
India Bistro1157 Davie Street, Vancouver
This Place is Always a Good Deal
By nhvangurl of Kitsilano (8 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

We had a pretty good meal here on Monday with a couple of my co-workers. I am no first-timer here, but what first captivates you of India Bistro is the ambience. Nicely decorated but kind of small, it worked. Where we get seated didn't really matter. Keeping our voices down wasn't really a speciality.

The food is made to perfection each time, I have yet to catch them serving something half-hearted. Portion sizes justify the price. The naan is soft and pillowy, and their chicken dishes are superb. But what really blew us away this time was the rasmalai. Thanks to the persuasion of the waiter, one of my co-workers finally tried it out. His tricks to adding water or milk to make it more edible for others.

Ganache Patisserie1262 Homer Street, Vancouver
Ganache takes the cake
By nhvangurl of Kitsilano (8 Reviews)

Ganache Patisserie is one of those places you can never get bored of because their pastries are so good. Their caramel-chocolat pastry is one of the most delicious things I have tried, even though it has so much chocolate in it (not a big chocolate fan here). And it's not just me, I still feel it still manages to draw a crowd despite being high-priced. I like coming in the mornings when it is not too busy to eat some cake or get some croissants. That, with some fresh coffee, alone can really set your mood and get you going for the day.

The Height of Arrogance! We will NOT be back!

We were so happy to find this place, the decor is cute, like in France — the waiters all dressed the part and they were even French. However, everything stopped being cute as soon as we started to (or should I say, tried to) interact with any of the arrogant waiters.

We sat at the bar and ordered drinks and some pomme frites. At one point the bartender made some drinks right in front of us and I tried to talk to him and he just contradicted what I said — I said, "wow, so close you can almost taste the drink" (the bar was super narrow, so he literally was right where we were) and he said "ah, maybe smell them". No biggy I thought, then I asked him something in French (I lived in France when I was younger, so I speak some French) and of course he immediately answered me in English.

Then when my partner accidentally knocked over his champagne glass (because the bartender had left all of his drink mix stuff right in front of us), he merely came over and said "would you like to order another drink?" Not, oh darn, can I get you another drink or anything.

I also heard the waiters talking and whenever a customer came in and wanted to sit in the window (like we did), they said "no, we have to save it for a table of 4" - but then some wanna-be big shot guy came in with his girlfriend, they let him sit there, even though they didn't know him either.

Anyway, we were very unhappy with the service and or civility with this restaurant. For sure we will not be returning.

Sushiyama371 East Broadway, Vancouver
Service Sucked!!
By ILOVE2EAT of East Vancouver (73 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 8, 2015 - 2:34am [Dine in]

I don't like this place. I've gone here may be 3 or 4 times. And each time, service was awful.
The food is just ok ... not good ... not great.
But the service ... I couldn't believe how awful it was.
Took forever for them to take our order.
Took even longer to get our bill. And when I went up to pay without the bill, she kept looking at my hand to see if I had the bill. No tea refill. No friendly smile. Awful!!!!

White Spot1126 SE Marine Drive, Vancouver
I come for my love of White Spot Food
By smitm of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2015 - 1:44pm [Dine in]

I come for the food. We all know White Spot food tastes the same no matter where we go. I come at least once a week. The service is whatever. But that's not the reason I go there. This location is about 5 minutes away from where I live, there is never a wait at the door, the food comes pretty fast. What more do I need? Once, I saw the manager get really angry at a server and she was on the verge of tears. I felt really bad for the server but who knows what the story was. Like I said, I only go for the food.

Sweet Cherubim Natural Foods & Restaurant1105 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Pretty Solid for a Hippie Vegan Place on the Drive
By smitm of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2015 - 1:40pm [Dine in]

I'm not really into Vegan food because it usually tastes like cardboard, but this place definitely knows what they are doing. Maybe it's all the indian herbs and spices they put that give the food flavour. or its the rich chocolaty goodness the baked stuff has. I gave the service a 5, just because the staff is really knowledgeable about their vitamins and doesn't mind when I bombard them with 10 questions at a time. The Ambiance is a 4 because I prefer this joint over Drive Organics next door. This isn't 5 star quality interior we are talking about but it's just that this place feels inviting and warm. Drive Organics just feels a little bit colder. Not that Drive Organics isn't awesome.

Cactus Club Cafe1530 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Way Better than the one on Ash
By smitm of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2015 - 1:28pm [Dine in]

I just prefer the vibe at this Cactus over the one on Ash. Maybe it's because I've been to the one on Ash so often over the past few years that I'm just so sick of the location now. I've never had a bad experience at the one on Ash, I just really like the vibe at this location. The interior is nice, not like the typical Cactus locations. The happy hour specials are such a good deal. Love love love the happy hour drink/food specials.

Good, not the Greatest

Portions were a good size, the price is like most korean restaurants. I have had better and I have had worse. There's not much to say. The service was good when I went with my friend and both of us are not korean. We didn't feel any discrimination or rudeness like the other reviews have. I will probably go back when I don't feel like going to a Korean BBQ place and smelling like BBQ all day.

Green Cafe, The3307 East Broadway, Vancouver
$3.00 breakfast
By thirdperson of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, August 5, 2015 - 3:49pm [Dine in]

Not far from famous Bon's is another restaurant that offers all day breakfast near Broadway and Rupert. Inside, the Green Cafe is clean. bright and tidy with walls, floor and furniture in various shades of green. This apparent family run operation is nice and friendly. $3.00 breakfast is cheap and delicious which consists of your choice of either sausage, bacon or ham with egg (any style), toasted bread and shredded potato hashbrown. On the menu, there are other items such as sandwiches, burgers, noodle soup, chow mein, fried rice, curry meats and appetizers. This small cafe is recommended if you like fast service and affordable food.

Wings14945 Marine Dr, White Rock
Terrible Lunch
By AnnieO of Surrey BC (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 3, 2015 - 8:49pm [Dine in]

Was at the beach with my daughter, son inlaw and 2 grandchildren on a Friday afternoon and suggested we go to Wings for lunch as I had eaten two or three times at the Wings on King Geo. Hwy and had very postive experiences there although it was about 3 years ago. My daughter and I ordered fish and chips. The fish was quite good, the batter was nice and crispy but the fries were limp and the coleslaw was tasteless. My gr.son and his dad ordered burgers and they were edible but nothing to rave about, their fries too were limp. My gr.daughter ordered the beef dip and asked if she could have a cesaer salad instead of fries and the waitress said yes they could do that. According to my gr.daughter the beef dip was gross! I ordered a Long Island Ice Tea that came in a short 8 ounce glass and was more ice then anything else. First time I've had one in a short glass.
The service was very slow. There was only one other couple sitting outside on the patio and our table inside.Once we ordered our food it took about 40 min to come to the table. I wouldn't want to go there when it was busy. There were 3 waitresses. One was taking the orders the other two were cleaning menu's. The cook seemed to be spending time on the phone. The server we had looked quite stunned when we asked what the specials were. She seemed to zone out for a minute before remembering. Actually kind of comical thinking back on it. When we got our bill a $3.00 charge was added for the cesaer salad. When the server was questioned about it she said she assumed we knew the switch would be extra. After a discussion and our asking for the manager the charge was waived. Other places I have been to tell you there is an extra charge when you ask for a switch not "assume" you'd know! The value is over priced for the quality of food you get there.
As to the ambience, there is none. The restaurant seems quite rundown and the washrooms were not very clean. Would we go back, a resounding no from all of us.
