Speakeasy on Broadway901 W Broadway, Vancouver
Nobody served me so I left.... Again!
Submitted Saturday, June 6, 2015 - 1:50am [Dine in]

This is the seond time I went there and both times I didn't get any service and walked out!

Today I waited at the front for someone to seat me (about 3 minutes with NO acknowledgement) nad finalyy a waiter came by with a tray of empty glasses. As he walked by he asked where I wanted to sit, so I told him and he kept walking. I thought I was suppost to follow him so I did but then he walked into the kitchen so I waited again.

Finally, he came back and told me to sit any where I like, so I did. He brought me 2 drink menus and the fresh sheet but no regular menu. I waited about 10 minutes for him or any one to come back to take a drink order or check in, but no one did. I tried getting service from 2 other waitresses in the area but no one came over when I waved at them.

I gave up and walked out. No body paid any attention.

First time I went I at least had food. It was good but the service was also really bad then too! I had to flag donw the bartender to get the bill, even though my friend and I had wanted anothre drink and maybe desert. Sucks!!

And both times sevearal of the tables were dirty but no one was there.

It's like the waiters just don't care.

Afghan Horsemen Restaurant, The1833 Anderson Street, #202, Vancouver
Can't believe the server remembered me
Submitted Saturday, March 17, 2012 - 5:03pm [Dine in]

I go to this restaurant only occasionally, not becuase I don't love it but becuase it's not really close to where I live. The food is great and I love the turkish style coffee they serve. They also bring a very generous plate of afghan rice with their platters (sometimes you have to ask for it, but it is included with the platter). I never leave unsatisfied and the food always tastes great.

I read another review about the table and floor being dirty. I have seen a few times when things could have been a bit cleaner, but I think it may be hard when they are very busy and the lighting is low. In my 20 to 30 times eating at this restaurant, I have not experienced the level of uncleanliness mentioned by that reviewer. Maybe a fork needed rewashing or a booth seat or table had a spot missed. Nothing worse than that.

I had had a short but nice conversation once with one of the servers one night just before closing time (after a wonderful meal). After that, I hadn't been back for at least a year and when I did, I got the same server. She not only remembered me, but mentioned our conversation too, and remembered the details! It was really nice and I felt like she really cared! How rare for a busy restaurant like that.

Also, the belly dancing on Saturday night is a lot of fun. The dancers do a good job of working their way around the room and the show doesn't last so long that it becomes a major disruption for those people who are not really into it.

I love the decor as well, especially the historical photos and items in the display cabinet. The cushion seating may be great for some people, but I have circulatory problems and only like to sit at the booths or chairs.

Fets Whisky Kitchen1230 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Best breakfast on the Drive
Submitted Saturday, March 17, 2012 - 4:41pm [Dine in]

I have been to Fets many times over the years and it is still my favorite of all the breakfast places on the Drive. I especially love the bacon and the multigrain toast they serve, and they even have marble rye if you like that too. Their hashbrown potatoes are fantastic, cooked with lots of onions just the way I like them. They also do a lot of different kinds of pancakes, and I love trying out the specials (such as the orange / cinnamon pancakes which I'd love for them to make permanent on the menu).

I've only had one bad experience there with a server, many years ago, which the manager overheard and dealt with immediately. Otherwise, the service has been pretty good, even when they are busy. I try to go at times that are not so busy, because the tables are quite close and I like to have a bit more personal space.

Personally, I don't care for the atmosphere, as the murals and decor feel a bit dated, but they play lots of great music and if they keep the decor, it will only get kitchier and kitchier, which will be fun again in the future.

I definitely go for the food, which never disappoints.

Gojo Little Africa Ethiopian Cafe2838 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Still thinking about the yummy food
Submitted Saturday, March 17, 2012 - 4:26pm [Dine in]

A bunch of us went here about two weeks ago for a birthday get together - birthday boy's choice. I've eaten ethiopeian food before and liked it, but the food at Gojo was better tan any ethioepan I have had before. I ordered the ethopian tea and the owner made it nice and strong for me - red rose tea with ginger - superb! I think I'm addicted now! All te food we ordered was really good including fish, lentils, cabbage, chicken, beef and lamb dishes. The best (my favorite anyway) was a dish with spinach and beef called gomen be siga. I will be going back for that too.

The restaurant is small and a bit hard to see from the street. It's easy to miss. But the inside is cute with really interesting decor. The staff - owner and another server, were great. They answered all our questions (a few of our group had not had ethiopeian before so there were alot of questions) and the food came pretty fast even though we ordered alot.

I was really surprised at the good prices. There were six of us and we ordered a ton of food and drinks and the bill was still under $100 including a generous tip - I think it was $86 for the whole thing, actually.

Gojo is only two blocks from the Broadway skytrain station, located just past 12th on Commercial. I was surprised that the place wasn't busier on a Saturday night. Honestly, now that I've eaten there, I can't understand why the place didn't have a long lineup out the door with people waiting for a table. Great value and terrific food you will be remembering for a long time. That's all I can say.
