Anton's Pasta Bar4260 E Hastings Street, Burnaby
Not the best not the worst pasta I ever had
By Huge of Surrey (139 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 1:28pm [Dine in]

Went here with the family and ordered 3 dishes. I was impressed from the size and the taste was decent. Far from the best but decent for what it is. The ingredients could have been better but for the amount you get, something has to suffer. The flavour from my dish New Orlean was oily and tasted ok, but my wife's dish was chicken and mushroom with dill cream sauce tasted far better. The kids 3 cheese alfredo was satisfactory. I would not rush back but if I was ever starving and craving pasta, then I would give this restaurant a go again.

Lhy Thai7357 Edmonds St., Burnaby
Dissappointing at best :(

Had lunch the other day and ordered the chicken rice, medium hot. It took a long time to get the order and when I did it had no heat at all to it. I found maybe three little pieces of chicken in the rice which was disappointing. When I paid for my lunch the first transaction was cancelled by the person using the machine and I only noticed afterwards when checking my bank account that when they ran the transaction through again they charged an additional 49 cents?? It's not the most expensive food around (which I can see why now) but why charge me the additional 49 cents the second time around?

There are lots of thai restaurants around so I suggest that if you want good service and quality food you go elsewhere.

Today, i order 2 different pizzas, get 2 the same. The deliveryman added a $2 tip to the bill without my consent, asked me which acct. iwill pay from THEN hands me the debit machine. I didn't realize what happened until after it went thru when i looked at the bill. I called them up, asked them is it was their policy to add a tip to the order and not ask the customer, told them my order was wrong. They did delivery the right pizza, only after taking the other one back though, were rude and unapologetic and the new pizza tasted like they spit in it! You lost my business

Paul's Sub Shop4608 Imperial St., Burnaby
Nothing has changed, and that's a very good thing.
By AME62 of Fredericton NB (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, May 24, 2014 - 9:24am [Dine in]

Having been a regular customer back in the '80s at the Paul's Café (as it was then known) on 45th and Fraser in Vancouver I was disappointed that it was no longer there. But prior to visiting Vancouver for the first time in years after moving east a face-booked friends in that city, one of whom informed me that the restaurant now operated out of Burnaby on Imperial at Gray St.

I checked it out the first day in town and was not disappointed! The menu has not been tampered with in any way, and the sub I ordered (Paul's Special) was exactly as I remembered.

In the following days I dragged some other ex-customers to the place, and now that they know where to go they'll certainly be back. Also tried their breakfast menu and once again nothing had changed - still heaping quantities of the very best you'll find anywhere.

For those who've never been to Paul's I can only say this: Once you've tried their subs you'll only have two questions: 1) Who are Subway and Quizno's? and 2) Who cares?

Ramies Restaurant4287 Kingsway, #9, Burnaby
OK. But had better food at other Greek Restaurants

Saturday Evening Experience

I ended up taking the gf here and we had a coupon for 50% the 2nd entrée. Upon entering, the place is clean, tidy w/well spaced tables for privacy. Most importantly, it was quiet inside.

The waitresses were attentive as we had our water refilled often. We had very fresh and delicious bread to start out with. Upon putting in our order for the beef and shish kabob souvlaki, I noticed a tad bit longer than usual to get our food - about 15 minutes. When it came, the food looked fresh.

However, the Tzatzhi sauce was not used to what I am getting at other restaurants. The texture was different and it had less taste. Perhaps it was healthier with this version? Also, the meat in both of our dishes was not as delicious and tender as other greek restaurants.

Overall I am not complaining as it was a fine meal.

Oh, washrooms were clean too. Not as one point did I cringe like how I do when I enter a Chinese restaurant.

Hakkaku Ramen4530 E Hastings Street, Burnaby
Best ramen I've had so far
By cvpro of Burnaby (9 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 16, 2014 - 9:33pm [Dine in]

This place is a serious challenge to the popular ramen restaurants by Denman and Robson in Vancouver.

I've been going here since it first opened. At the time, there were few customers and I was afraid it would eventually close down. 6 months later, customers started coming in and now the place is thriving - thank goodness because I hate having to drive downtown for a bowl of ramen.

First thing I have to say is that this place is CLEAN! We have a toddler and almost everyplace we go to - the restaurant baby high chair is filthy. Here it is spotlessly clean! This is a first good sign.

The menu is fairly simple and the prices are very good though they have recently changed the menu and I'm told some prices have changed but I haven't noticed the change. I normally order the vegetable shio ramen with extra cha-siu topping. I like this combo because the bowl comes loaded with a nice variety of vegetables (got to get my fibre) while the cha-siu topping keeps my carnivore cravings satisfied. The soup is very nice and not as salty as what I would find at Kintaro.

Service is very expedient and friendly though sometimes the server(s) get overwhelmed when the place if full. Usually there is only one server working there.

One time, my wife had a little bit of ramen left over and asked for it to be packed up. By mistake the server discarded it and the manager offered to take the entire amount off of our bill. This type of service would be unheard of in many other restaurants of this type.

This place deserves your business. Go there and try it out!

No. 1 Beef Noodle House4741 Willingdon Avenue, Burnaby
Nice and comfy inside. Great lighting and wall decor. Less than average rating for BBTEA.
By straw_hut of Vancouver (downtown) (22 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, May 12, 2014 - 11:51am [Dine in]

My two buddies and I came here on a Sunday night for some takeout bbtea.

It looks great inside! Clean, quiet and great use of mood lighting. The waiter also was attentive to us. The menu sported a big selection of drinks. Our bbtea was made quickly but the guy gave it to us with the straws not having wrapping on them (eww).

After we got home and started on the drinks, I found my Taro bbtea to be full of ice and lacking in flavor. My buddies mentioned the same thing. For $4.50 per drink, this is a little on the expensive side. I will not be coming back for drinks. Perhaps I will try the food here next time and do a follow-up review.

Paul's sub shop should be a staple in anyone's diet. This place should be winning awards for its subs! They are substantial and amazing, and worth any commute you have to take to get to them. The lady behind the counter was an absolute sweetheart, and the subs are jam packed with so much stuff they are bursting from their container. Excellent value for an excellent meal..... Do not miss this place!

I came with friends of mine the other day to try the best pizza in town. I was no disappointed, I ordered the chicken souvlaki and my friends shared a large burnaby heights pizza. The taste was incredible and the portion was huge. The decor is dim but there is a candle lit fireplace for the soothing relaxing romantic feel? Will be sure to bring my girlfriend here for a date next time!!

Horizons has a special promotion on for the month of March. The Chef's Table D'Hote, a three course dinner for $35. You have a choice of three appy's, 4 entrees and three desserts . The food was excellent. At our table we enjoyed the chicken and barley soup, the gulf Island Mussels and clams followed by the Pork Tenderloin and the New York Steak. For dessert crème brule and cappuccino cheesecake.

Service was attentive and you have a lovely view. You need reservations. They run promotions several times a year and it gives you a chance to enjoy a fairly expensive restaurant at a more reasonable price. Check the website.

We used to go to this place with former friends and consistently was let down by the quality of food that was not hot. The desserts reminds me of college/university quality food that filled your belly but was nothing to write home about and recommend. Their fried chicken was good (not hard to mess up fried chicken) and some pasta otherwise it failed. If people want cheap eats and to chow down like there is no tomorrow, hit this place but if they want better then look around.

Not one to usually complain , this is the second time lately ordering from here , the food was worse than reheated mall food fare Chinese... Not the Ming Kee I used to know ... Will not order again. Items ordered were sweet and sour pork , Szechwan chicken, hot and sour soup(which was good),and steamed rice. This isn't the hot and fresh cooking I used to get from here.

A few of my friends and I went to the movies at Tinsel Town, but for some reason decided to come to Metro Town after the movie. We came and hung around the mall and were trying to decide what to eat. We finally decided on this place.

We were seated immediately (no problem) another friend came to the restaurant to join us. I was thinking of doing AYCE, but most actually didn't want to do AYCE, so I was ok with A La Carte. Anyways, for my meal, I ordered a dynamite roll and two California rolls. I had asked the waitress to bring some mayonnaise. I had to flag her and a couple other waitresses in order to get my mayonnaise (and it came in a bowl with minimal amount (are you serious?) again, I had to flag down a couple of waitresses to get mayonnaise.

Anyhow, the rest of the food wasn't really all that great , I mean it was barely passable, but can't say that I really liked it all that much. Another friend of mine was complaining about something, but I wasn't paying much attention to that.

I don't really see myself coming back here anytime soon

This is one of my favourite discoveries in Burnaby. It has great food and a quirky atmosphere. Great place to meet up with friends and enjoy good sushi. The staff are always friendly and the service is fantastic. Lunchtime can get pretty busy - so either go here for an early or late lunch to avoid the rush hour. Love the action figures!

My family was over for my birthday. It was disappointing to find out that my mother had asked the staff to make it a special event for me, but least did the RR staff care!! Forget making it a celebration, they would take forever to serve us our lunch and coffee!! I would not recommend the Burnaby branch - especially if you are celebrating.

Disappointing Dinner Experience
By BurnabyHans of Burnaby B.C (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, March 15, 2014 - 4:58pm [Dine in]

Having been to the Old Little Billys I was looking forward to dining at the new location. It had been many years and I had fond memories of the food and service.
The new location is nice to look at but right away we noticed the service to be lacking. No warm greeting or smiles. We also noticed that the plates on our table were chipped and there were plastic table covers and paper napkins. Definitely a 3 dressed up as a 9!
When we asked about the steak and lobster special our server said "its steak & lobster.... I don't know what else to tell you....."
The appetizers were escargot and crab stuffed mushroom caps....fair at best. Our server did not come check on us or ask us how we enjoyed it and said nothing as she cleared our plates. In fact she had little to say at all.
Our mains were a very nice lobster fettuccine, tasty and good size portion and a very grisly tough rib-eye steak with an under cooked baked potato. I was very disappointed with the steak for $31. Again there was no check in from our server and I had to flag her down to get a drink refill. After we finished eating we sat 10 minutes with dirty plates on our table before walking to the till to get our check. I was surprised to see a $3 charge to sub our house salads for Caesar salad even though they were the same price on the menu and our server said nothing about the extra charge.
All in all a very sad time and one we will not be repeating!
We really hoped to have a great experience matching some of the other reviews here but that was not the case. we will not be back nor could we ever recommend this restaurant to others.

Great food, poor service
By thefunkieone of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, March 14, 2014 - 4:08pm [Take-out]

If we're talking strictly about food, this place is great. If we add in service and overall experience, I have to say it is one of the worst experiences I have ever encountered.

As I have been avoiding meat, I had researched vegetarian restaurants and in Burnaby. Even though this is a bit out of the way for me, I made a special trip here to try out some vegan pho.

As a solo diner walking in to a crowded room nearing the end of the lunch rush, all tables were filled and so I waited at the door, expecting a friendly greeting and was ready to wait for an empty table. I got a look from the server who then quickly went to the back and didn't come out for about a minute or so. After awkwardly waiting at the door, I went to the counter to let her know I was there. I was abruptly told to wait until there was a free table. I had to ask for a menu and I was sitting at the heightened table facing the window (presumably for those waiting for take out or for people who want a view of the strip mall parking lot).

I would not have minded sitting there even though a group had left the table right beside me and for the half hour or so that I was there waiting (whether for a table or for the food I decided to take out), the table was left empty and not cleaned. I waited for the woman to take my order which she didn't so I once again had to get up, pass the empty table with dirty dishes and tell her that I wanted take out instead. She didn't try to direct me to that empty table or the couple of other ones that soon became empty as people left but she just took the order. So I waited again, almost embaressingly waiting for my take out as more tables became free but were left uncleaned. I even had to ask for the tea that would have come with the meal I had wanted to eat there.

I could hear her apologizing to other guests that they had to wait so long for their food as I sat waiting for my take out. So it also surprised me that when she finally came over with my take out food (and I was starving at this point), she didn't say sorry and just gave me my food.

So sure, the vegan beef pho was delicious and fresh tasting. The vegan pork roll and sauce were also delicious. Unfortunately when asked about this place, all I can tell people about is the poor service.
