Mr. Pickwick's Fish & Chips1007 Denman Street, Vancouver
Submitted Wednesday, May 5, 2010 - 2:12pm [Dine in]

After a trip the Aquarium yesterday, I was in the mood for fish & chips. I'd heard great things about Mr. Pickwicks, and suggested to my friends that we go there for dinner.

Our food was ... meh!

We all had halibut & chips. Two of us are from British families, the other works at Rodney's (prep). None of us were impressed with our food. It was okay, but we were expecting GREAT fish & chips.

The fish tasted as though it had been frozen, and was cut into uniform pieces (almost like something from Highliner). Too much symmetry for authenticity. The chips weren't anything to write home about either.

Not worthy of it's $15 price.

One of my friends had heard the quality had gone down-hill. Guess she was right. Won't be back.

Dallas Pizza593 East Broadway, Vancouver
Waste Of Money
Submitted Sunday, March 14, 2010 - 7:49pm [Dine in]

First, the good: I ordered for delivery at about 1:30 a.m., during the Olympics. The person who took my order was pleasant, as was the man who delivered the pies. Delivery took about 40 minutes.

The bad: 2 medium pies, which cost about $25 ... and a lot of it went to waste, because they didn't taste so good. The bacon & mushroom: REALLY salty. The ham & pineapple: nasty. The sauce isn't good, and almost an entire pizza was thrown out.

BC Sushi2126 W Broadway, Vancouver
Bloody Awful!
Submitted Friday, April 3, 2009 - 9:11pm [Dine in]

Since writing-off BC Sushi three weeks ago, I've meant to submit my own review. Tonight, having ordered from it's neighbour, Temaki Sushi, I have been reminded of why I should never have given BC Sushi more than one opportunity to keep me as a customer. (I'm sticking with Temaki. MUCH better!)

If you've read other reviews about BC Sushi, you'll have noticed the consistently-shared opinions of others:
* terrible service.
* incredibly rude owners & servers.

Believe it. People have not exaggerated.

I work in a nearby office, where many colleagues order from BC Sushi due to their economical AYCE fare & generous bento boxes. Sometimes, we dine-in (the noisy, shabby digs). Other times, we order for pick-up. Since December, I've probably spent about $200 at BC Sushi, both dining in and taking out.

Every single time: rude service, dismissive owners/servers, whom seem to treat their customers like a herd of cattle. No "please", no "thank you", no smiles, no warmth, no acknowledgment of returning customers, being grunted at on the telephone, and just ... an over-all lack of consideration.

Upon my final experience there, picking-up a take-out order, I was treated as though I had "interrupted" a conversation between two young, Asian women (conversing in Mandarin or Cantonese). Upon "interrupting" them to pay for my order, they continued-on their conversation, looking at each other, grabbing my cash, and plopping my change onto the counter. No "please", and definitely no "thank you". All while the older woman (owner?) stood there ... ignoring me too.

As I stepped-back and said, "You're WELCOME! Rude!", they were too busy chatting to each other to even notice my obvious, emphasized comments. They had my money, so why should they care or listen, right?

Returning to work, pissed-off, eating my "so-so" order, I read others' reviews here, printed several pages, and highlighted others' comments about "terrible service" and "rudeness". I also wrote an accompanying letter, stating my disgust, letting them know that I would not be back.

After work, I walked back to BC Sushi, and presented a yellow envelope (my letter & those reviews) to the older woman, enforcing that I'd ordered from her business for the very last time. She played stupid, asking myself, "When did this happen?"

Hello! She'd stood right there, next to the rude girls, a mere two hours earlier. She didn't recognize me, probably hadn't noticed their blatant rudeness (because she herself is, at times, rude too) and offered a weak apology.

Nope. Not going back. Their sushi isn't anything to write home about, the restaurant itself (old booths from Binos, dirty, noisy, tacky) is extremely unappealing, and no self-respecting person should ever patronize a business with such rude, ungrateful, dismissive owners/employees. They don't deserve to receive my money, nor does ANY customer deserve such unacceptable rudeness.

Temaki Sushi: I've been a customer for five years. Excellent people, good sushi, warm, inviting, clean ... everything that BC Sushi never has been, nor ever will be.

Regal Beagle2283 W Broadway, Vancouver
Not So Regal Beagle!
Submitted Wednesday, January 2, 2008 - 5:16pm [Dine in]

First & foremost: "Beanboyandbryde" is likely Blaze, whom has a business a relationship with the pub. "Blaze's Beans" are sold at The Regal Beagle. Therefore, the review hasn't come from an objective patron!

Living in the neighbourhood, this pub was once my local, nearby hang-out. After a while, I realized that I was wasting a lot of money in:
* a cliquey establishment. Take a look at their Facebook group; "the gang's all there"!

* received service from SOME nice employees, but others whom needed an attitude adjustment. Those whom were rude: just because you're efficient, and have regular patrons, doesn't mean that you can adopt a cocky, condescending, or dismissive demeanor towards those people.

* eating mediocre, inconsistant fare from their kitchen. Nothing to write home about. One Sunday morning: their kitchen ran-out of basic, essential items for brunch, couldn't get their s**t together, and made the NICE server look like a fool.

* who wants to go to a place where patrons know that the manager/bartender has a habit of being "served" by female bartenders?!

* back section of the original bar smells like rancid pee.

* back door: specially reserved for friends/cliquey patrons to smoke anything but cigarettes in the back, staff parking lot.

* same, Baby-Boomer crew sitting at the barstools, every freakin' day. Oh, and let's not forget Kelly, the gangly, loud-mouth, obnoxious gardener/landscaper whom shoots his mouth off about every subject he thinks he's an authority-on.

* beer: served in warm glasses, fresh out of the dishwasher. Who wants to drink that?!
