Moby Dick Restaurant15479 Marine Drive, White Rock
Very Pleased
Submitted Thursday, December 16, 2010 - 7:51pm [Dine in]

We went here on a Saturday, about 45 minutes before closing. The lady that greeted us (owner) was very friendly and made us feel welcomed.

We don't eat plates full of deep fried goodness very often, but we were craving it this night. I will say the fish and the tartar sauce were very tasty (and they really do give you an extra piece!). Neither of us were impressed with the fries. A bit soggy and a lot of 'nubbin' pieces (the little left over bits of fries). Perhaps it was because we came later in the evening? But the fish was good, not loaded with tons of batter.

We both ordered beers to start, one of us got a Canadian instead of the import as requested...but no big deal.

We will return, and recommend just for the ambiance, value and the friendly service.

Pavlos Restaurant15169 Roper Ave, White Rock
I think I will pass....
Submitted Thursday, August 19, 2010 - 4:51pm [Dine in]

We went there for dinner on a Saturday night, and there was only one table seated in the entire place. That probably should have been our first clue.

To start we ordered 2 appies. The phyllo pastry was so burnt on the tiropita that it was actually black on all the corners, and you could smell the burntness (like bread in a toaster burnt). Our server never came by to check to see how the food was (apparently busy with the one other table) so we waved down the manager (I am assuming). He asked if anything was wrong, and we pointed to the tiropita stating it was a little too well done. He looked at it and said 'it always comes that way because the oven is too hot'. We asked if we could order something else instead. He said he had to take it back to the kitchen to see if they thought it was not edible. WHO lets the kitchen decided??? They are the ones that sent it out to us! After stating we were willing to PAY for something else and for him just to remove the plate we did finally recieve another selection.

Prime Rib special was chewy, and salads were sub par. The only way I can describe the food is if you picture a cookbook from the late 70's to early 80's. The mashed potatoes were two mounds that were scooped from an ice cream scoop onto the plate. The shrimp salad was pretty plain, with two chunks of cucumber, and two wedges of tomato. It really looked like something you would get in a cafeteria - or an old age home. Oh..and paprika sprinkled on everything!

If my grandma was still alive, she would probably love this place...however, I will not be going back anytime soon.

Shochi Ku Japanese Restaurant1357 Johnston Road, White Rock
Great local place!
Submitted Friday, August 6, 2010 - 6:06pm [Dine in]

We went here last night and I was pleasantly surprised! We are new to the White Rock area, had tried a few places for sushi and have been totally disappointed (way over priced, too much rice, and small portions).

I have been living downtown for many years and took for granted how many places you could get good sushi for a decent price.

Shochi Ku had great rolls (bigger than most places) for a fair price. Their specialty rolls were amazing and tempura was light and crisp! Service was top notch with free miso soup while we waited for our order.

I will be back..and probably become a regular!

Bandidas Taqueria2781 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Great First Time
Submitted Tuesday, March 30, 2010 - 5:18pm [Dine in]

We went to Bandidas based on the reviews that we have read. We were not disappointed in the least! The only one draw back is that it is vegetarian with no meat options. However, there are plenty of items to choose from - and all looked tasty!

We started with the small nachos (which was a loaded with toppings), and for mains my other half ordered Dani's enchiladas with rice and beans, and I the house salad with added roasted yam and tofu.

He found the enchiladas a little sweet for his liking but was still impressed with quantity and quality. I really enjoyed my salad - and I couldn't even eat it all!

Ambiance is not high end, but more of a comfy feeling. I loved that none of the chairs or dishes matched.

Service was very pleasant and attentive. Even though they were busy, our server still managed to come and check on us a few times.

Dinner total for 1 litre white sangria (really good!), small nacho, enchilada, and house salad $50 after tax. Saturdays the sangria is on special for $15 for 1 litre.

We will be back!

Broadway Station Sushi1638 E. Broadway, #101, Vancouver
Terrible Service
Submitted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 6:47pm [Dine in]

We have eaten here a few times. The food is ok at best as I haven't had anything really terrible, nor anything really great. I would say for the most part the rolls are on the smaller size, but they are cheaper than a lot of places - so it balances. I don't eat the raw stuff, so I can't comment on the freshness of that.

I do find the service is LACKING. The servers refuse to make eye contact when you are trying to get their attention. They just stay behind the counter and pretend not to notice.

And to tell the truth...what is up with the one MAYBE two pieces of ginger per plate??? Even if the plate has 3 rolls on it- it gets 1.5 pieces of ginger! And you basically have to flap your arms like a bird to get their attention if you are wanting more tea. Also, save yourself some time and just go to the cashier to get your bill.

This review is based on 3 visits, so I am sure it wasn't just an 'off' day.

I am sure we will be back because it is very close to our home - but only out of convenience.

Harambe Ethiopian Restaurant2149 Commercial Street, Vancouver
Great Experience
Submitted Tuesday, February 9, 2010 - 6:16pm [Dine in]

This was our first time trying this restaurant and it was a pleasant surprise!. We arrived a little after 7 on a Saturday night and were seated promptly.

I have to say the decor was a lot better than I expected, it was warm, friendly, and clean.

The waitress came to take our order, however, being our first time we were unsure of portion sizes, what to expect, etc. So after ordering a wine and a beer, we decided on the combo platter for three people (my other half is a BIG eater. The food was very tasty, and presented nicely on the platter. There was actually some food left over after our meal, and we were stuffed(very rare that happens!). so to me that says good value for price.

The service was a bit lacking during the meal. After trying to catch our server's eye numerous times, we resorted to going up to the bar a few times for refills of water, napkins, etc. The place wasn't that busy, so I am unsure why the service was lacking.

All in all, a very decent experience.
