Vassilis Souvlaki Greek Taverna6558 Kingsway, Burnaby
Worst Greek Food Ever!
By sophiatsirigotis of Surrey (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, September 27, 2018 - 11:07am [Dine in]

Came here for dinner with my parents this past weekend as we had never been here but always drove past. My mom and I ordered the moussaka (we asked the waitress if it was fresh and she said it had been made that morning) and my father ordered the roast lamb. After waiting almost 35 minutes for food that is already pre-made (moussaka just needs to be warmed up, same with the roast lamb) our moussaka was OVERCOOKED and had burnt corners! Besides the fact that my piece was half the size of the one given to my mother, we were starving by this point so we just started eating. The vegetables in the moussaka (zucchini, eggplant and potatoes) were RAW. They were not cooked at all.. and were still crunchy as I bit into them. The bechamel sauce had no flavour whatsoever (no cheese either) and overall the whole dish lacked flavour. For almost $20, it was definitely not worth it. It was extremely disappointing as moussaka is one of my favorite foods.
We told the waitress that the moussaka was terrible and her response was "That's good to know.." She didn't make any effort to deal with our complaint, she just ended up disappearing for the rest of the evening.

Overall, a terrible experience both with service and with food.. there are MANY other Greek restaurants in Vancouver that I would recommend over this one. Save your money!

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!

Friend's BBQ Restaurant4327 N Road, Burnaby
Chinese food, birthday lunch .... big yum!!
By 3amigos of Burnaby (50 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, April 27, 2018 - 11:22am [Dine in]

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!!

Wow! Came here again after many years to be very pleasantly surprised.
We had veal parmigiana, a tomato based pasta dish, hummus, and tiramisu. Everything tasted very fresh and homemade. Enormous portions - enjoyed leftovers later. Various smart-looking Kitchen staff brought out each dish.
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!

Vassilis Souvlaki Greek Taverna6558 Kingsway, Burnaby
Good Greek Food
By wc0129 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, February 16, 2018 - 12:10am [Dine in]

Like Greece is the pearl of the Mediterranean, Vassilis Souvlaki Greek Taverna is another gemstone (or Ferrari) in Burnaby! The restaurant itself is painted white and blue (Greek signature colors) and their background Greek music is pleasing. It is a perfect place to feel exotic. The food is served with high quality of Greek traditional flavors. However, there was only one server in the restaurant, plus the owner as a host, sometimes we needed to wait for the server. Besides, I went there with regular customers and according to them, the owner is quite special. Anyway, among mezedes (Greek appetizers), we ordered Kalamarakia (Deep-fried squid) and Feta with olives (the famous Greek cheese), they were impressive because Kalamarakia even reminded me of my hometown Taiwanese food. I have no idea that the cheese can be so special especially, for it’s between fried and baked styles. No complaints about my chicken souvlakia; this dish was incredibly delicious with Greek salad, rice pilaf, roast potatoes, and tsatziki. The atmosphere was awesome and relaxing and the price for the food was definitely worthy. No wonder it is the best Greek restaurant in Burnaby for the last 15 years!

This has to be hands down the worst experience ever! I came in with my two kids as drive thru was slammed. No line up so we got to the till and the cashier seemed really confused about my order and kept getting agitated so I laughed and asked her if we could start again because she looked really confused and flustered. Her answers and attitude kept getting sharper and sharper and at the end of the order when I asked her to apologize for her attitude especially in front my kids she started arguing with me loudly and when I said please go get your manager the manager at first seemed nice and accommodating. He seemed to brush off his employees horrible attitude and awful behaviour he promptly proceeded to delete my (the order that took his employee three times to get right) and told me he would not serve me and told me to get out and that I could never come back again. I can not believe this happened in front of my two boys. forgot to mention the incompetent manager asked me never to come back lol and that he never wants to see me again in this area? Was that a threat? Fool

MYST Asian Fusion6400 Kingsway Street, #2, Burnaby
Pig's Feet Is Not Lamb
By Thrashka of Burnaby (3 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, June 30, 2017 - 10:29pm [Dine in]

I LIIIIIIIVE!!! After years of slumber, yet another poor experience has awoken Thrashka to take to the keyboard!

Thrashka brought Mrs. Thrashka and Baby Thrashka to visit Myst Asian Fusion upon hearing of a new, hip restaurant with a myriad of choices.

The decor was contemporary, they had sports on flat screens, the service was good, there were many different menu items, and prices were reasonable.

What's wrong? They have an item labeled "Mini Lamb Hot Pot" that is Chef Recommended, so of course Thrashka tries. Because, who does not love lamb? They're both cute and tasty. The problem is that what is served is instead PIG'S FEET. Yes, they try to pass off swine hooves or pork hock as lamb. When asked about it, the waitresses simply said "it's lamb", not realizing that this customer knows the difference. Thrashka has dined on pork's feet before, and it is fine, but do not insult people by flat-out telling them to their face it's lamb. Muslim brothers and sisters will have a serious issue with this!!

To their credit, they apologized and substituted another dish, without charging for the pork. So, decent customer service on their part. One should have clued-in when seeing the photo, but they also have a disclaimer that states "actual dish may vary from picture."

Heed my words, that unless you enjoy sucking on porky's toes, avoid the "Mini Lamb Hot Pot!!"

Thrashka has spoken!

I work nearby and went to get some chow mein for lunch one day. There was a couple in front of me who ordered sandwiches, and when the owner asked what I wanted, she told me to come back later. I said I can't, I am going into meetings and that I can wait until she is done making the sandwiches no problem, to which she informed me she is too busy. I asked her if she was saying she won't serve me food, to which she waved bread around in the air and said she is too busy. Her husband was there also chopping veggies.... not impressed and will never go back.

awful service
By chmua of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, February 19, 2017 - 5:15pm [Dine in]

I was so excited that there was a sushi restaurant so close to the place I just moved into...it's a shame it has such bad service.
I came in and sat down and there were only about 6 other people in the restaurant.
I waited nearly 5 minutes before the server finally brought me a menu, almost 5 more minutes until he came back to take my order after turning and looking at him several times.
I only ordered two items a mango avocado sushi roll and an order of a supreme veggie tempura (or at least a similar name).
My mango avocado rolls came fairly quick and I finished those thinking they'd bring the tempura out shortly after. I also finished my green tea pretty quick as the servings for tea is barely larger than a 1oz shot glass. Couldn't get the waiters attention to get more tea even though at this point there was probably only about 8 people in the whole restaurant. The waiter seemed extremely flustered by this small amount of people as if someone was yelling at him in the back.

30 minutes after ordering I finally get my tempura, and I accidentally knocked my sauce on my leg and the floor so after not being able to get the waiters attention again I walk up to the cash register where someone is paying for their order and just say sorry to interrupt but I spilt my sauce and I need more napkins to clean it up, he hands me one small napkin to use...I use the one napkin he gave me to try to clean it up and I finally look at the tempura and realize it's not even what I ordered. I ordered a tempura that was all veggies, it even listed the special veggies that would be included, none of those were in there but there were lots of prawns. So again I walk back up to the cash register where the waiter is standing ignoring his customers and I tell him this isn't what I ordered, I ordered the supreme veggie and this has prawns in it. He says there are no prawns in the supreme veggie, and I say I know that's how I know it's the wrong order, if you don't believe me you can look at the plate you brought me. So he goes over to look and says oh I guess this isn't the right order and takes the plate and says nothing else.

At this point i'm hungry, i'm annoyed and I just wanna go somewhere else, so I tell them i'll pay for what I ate as I don't want to wait another 30 minutes for the right tempura. Then this guy comes flying out of the kitchen and gets angry and starts badgering me about when I ordered it and that I must have ordered the prawn one and not realized it. I just tell him that I just want to pay for the mango avocado rolls I ate and go. As i'm paying for it I can hear him speaking in another language to the server and saying i'm lying over and over.
How can it be such bad service when there's only 9 people in the entire restaurant? Also it was nearly 5 dollars for just a mango avocado roll, if i'm gonna pay that much it should be much better service than this.

The worst customer service restaurant

Submitted Tuesday, February 7, 2017 - 11:45pm [Dine in]

We booked a reservation for 4 people at 5pm on Feb 05 2017. We showed up at 4:30pm, and the server said he was still arranging the table for reservations for the night, so we waited outside until he done. First of all, he took us to a normal 10-people table set and saying "here was your table for 5 people." We said we booked for 4 people, without saying anything then he took us to a normal 2-people table set and saying, "then, here's your table!". We responded as "we booked a table for 4 people to celebrate the anniversary, could we please have a table suitable for 4 people which we could talk easily and also the table is fit for 3-course dishes for 4 people?' The server replied arrogantly, "You only have 2 options, either that 10-people table or this 2-people table, which one? There's no any other options for you !!" I'm so curios it was not our fault make the wrong reservation, secondly, when we showed up, he saying he's still arranging the tables how come all the suddenly every single table was pre-reserved? Then he just turned around and back office without saying anything. Then, the event leader Bradley Binkley came out the office and tried to back up his co-worker. However, the server, a Caucasian male with gold hair, just stayed inside the office chit chat with another female co-walk, laughing loudly and looking at us with disdain in his eyes. We asked the event leader of the server's name, but however, he said he can't tell us the server's name. How come as a customer we are not allowed to have the server's name? Therefore, we decided to cancel the dinner there since we are not treat as customer and not even allowed to know the server name. And the server never ever came out to apology for his attitude at all. This restaurant will be on my blocked list.

II thought it was a great buy at the time when you got a pound for $7, but now it's only 10 pieces for $7.....can get that at 7 - Eleven. Their wings aren't horrible, but they are not to be desired.

Rude manager who likes to close the restaurant early and kick out customers
By Laura T. of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, December 2, 2016 - 1:48am [Take-out]

On multiple occasions, I have been kicked out of the restaurant for daring to come inside after 10:30 at night though their advertised hours are until 11pm. Usually I only get inside because the door is locked but another customer is leaving. The manager is exceptionally rude. Each time he tells me to go. "Get out. We're closed. I will not serve you." And when I mentioned this to other folks in the community, they tell me they've had the exact same experience. How dare we want to eat something during the hours the sign says they're open. I hope this guy gets fired for the bad name he's giving his company. I don't mind the food, when I'm actually allowed to buy it. I have already received an apology letter from Burger King's head office. And yet this continues.

Self-cook, but service was weak
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 10, 2016 - 4:38pm [Dine in]

Had a family birthday dinner here.
Here's the Good versus Bad synopsis:

GOOD:
Reservations were made, accepted and a table was reserved for us.
They allowed us to use our ET Coupons for the meal. Some restaurants have lots of policy on this.
The "traditional style" bowls came out as ordered. Self-cook.
"Open-kitchen" concept so you see everything made.

BAD/NEEDS WORK:
Other than the NEW waiter that was serving staff, the other kitchen staff just stood there.
We ordered appetizers, they were cooked, they were placed onto the counter.... then just sat there for 10 minutes (I counted the minutes) getting cold while the waiter was busy with other tables.
The kitchen staff (3 of them) then stood there doing nothing but watch our appetizers (lamb skewers and wontons) get cold.
The rest of the meal was reminding the waiter we needed water, bowls, other cutlery, more food. We were extremely patient and he was very apologetic and gracious, but he was having troubles. He tried his best, it was his first week. He didn't get any help from his co-workers.
He gave us complimentary pop and dessert for our troubles.

We would return but the place needs to step it up if they intend to stay in business.
Besides our table, we only saw 4 more groups for the entire dinner.

Too Busy Eating to Write Review
By doughgirl of New Westminster (46 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, September 3, 2016 - 8:16pm [Dine in]

This is one of the busiest 'White Spot' locations my husband & I have visited. We practically eat at least one daily meal here. (Live & work nearby.) "Good food, great service" are the consistent comments I make on their surveys. I suspect the last review for this location was submitted in 2011, over 5 years ago, because guests are too busy receiving great service and enjoying their meals to write reviews.
The menu goes beyond burgers (which are one of my favorite choices) and makes one of the better waffles I have had compared to those of other restaurants. Our meal substitution requests are accommodated too.
Staff embrace Customer Service as the sole objective. Typically there is more than one host/hostess waiting to seat you so you are either seated right away or have your name recorded promptly. Servers hustle coming and going from tables, but will take time to have a brief chat once at your side.
We order some of the same dishes week after week and their presentation and flavour remains consistent.
The outside eating area is next to fields, conducive to relaxing. We prefer our favourite sections inside this spacious family-friendly restaurant.

Bad Service by one of the waitresses
By J.S. of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, August 13, 2016 - 11:00am [Dine in]

Bad service by one of the waitresses. Went here last night late night dinner with a friend. I ordered TUNA TATAKI sashimi. When I received it, they said I got Tuna Tataki SALAD. I said I didn't order that. The waitress ARGUED with me that that was what I said. The point is she didn't clearly repeated my order if she didn't understood me in the first place. She claims it is already been cooked. I said I didn't order it and I will not pay for something I didn't order and I said to just cancel it out. The waitress was not happy and talked to her manager (in Chinese, which she didn't realize that we can hear her and she called us "[email protected]#$% [email protected]#$%%". The manager came to our table and apologized for the confusion. After we left and went outside for smoke, she came downstairs as she was off and getting picked up, looked and stared at us and gave us the Finger! The thing is this wouldn't have happened if she just made it clear with me what I ordered before she put it in the system. At least she could've repeated my order first if she didn't understand... Overall I liked the food that I got (too bad for the tuna tataki though), but I would not recommend the service.

Terrible service and the owners are super cheap
By njmurarka of Vancouver (Collingwood) (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, June 18, 2016 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

Ordered the butter chicken for $11. It effectively tasted like a $0.60 bowl of Campbell's canned tomato soup, with the equivalent of the amount of chicken on a single drumstick. Basically, a bowl of crappy soup with a few random pieces of chicken in it.

The owner smiled and did not care when I mentioned it and in fact pointed to another customer, saying they ordered it too and were not complaining. No attempt whatsoever to remedy the problem .

Their paapdi chaat appetizer was even worse -- looked like someone had watered down the yoghurt so the whole thing was tasteless and cheap tasting.

All in all, the people running this place have 0 sense of customer service and terrible cooks. I expect this restaurant will die off soon, as it deserves to.

Btw, being that I am Indian, I can tell you with 100% conviction that this is terrible Indian food -- try Baba sweets just a block up the street -- WAY WAY WAY better. I wanted to try this place just because it was new to give it a chance. Big mistake.
