Casual Gourmet Bistro333 Brooksbank, #770, North Vancouver
Good for take-out.
Submitted Friday, July 10, 2009 - 8:36pm [Dine in]

The Casual Gourmet Bistro is a good restaurant if you want higher quality take out.

There are, however, a few downfalls to this establishment. The worst is the chicken. The breasts are flat, rubbery, and obviously frozen. The texture just makes it borderline disgusting. The pasta is very ordinary and nothing to write home about.

There are great dishes, however. The Beef Stroganoff is very good as are the beef tenderloin medallions.

The pricing is a bit high for the quality/amount of food you get.

All in all... meh.

Ming's Garden3043 Woodbine Drive, North Vancouver
The Best Chinese Food in North Van... and beyond!
Submitted Saturday, December 6, 2008 - 6:36pm [Dine in]

I have lived in Vancouver for 4 years now, and I have grown to HATE Chinese food due to poor quality and sub-par portions. Since I am originally from Montreal, I know quality when it comes to Chinese food in Canada.

My wife and I decided to give it another try tonight and selected Ming's Garden. I can actually say that I have found my Chinese restaurant. The quality of the food is far beyond any others in North Vancouver and the portions are generous to say the least.

We spend $25 on our order and we still have some in the fridge. The fact that it actually made it to the fridge instead of the trash can shows how good this place is.

My wife ordered the Wonton in Spicy Garlic Sauce, which were beyond delicious, and the Wor Wonton Soup. This is the first Wonton soup were we actually finished the broth. It was full flavoured and absolutely spectacular. I ordered the Sweet and Sour Pork (since that is usually the only thing from Chinese restaurants which will not revisit me in a negative manner) and it was the best I've ever had. I actually felt like I ordered Chinese from a restaurant from Montreal's Chinatown.

All in all, this restaurant has great value, great service (they delivered from a little over 8km away) and it was actually good!

I recommend this to everyone, and if you like spicy, get the Wonton in Spicy Garlic sauce. You will not be disappointed.
