Kalypso Restaurant & Tapas Bar1323 Robson Street, Vancouver
Outstanding Service
Submitted Tuesday, May 22, 2007 - 9:44pm [Dine in]

Service is outstanding. On a Saturday night with 3/4 full and a large group, they have enough staff to provide service. Great interaction between server and customer.

Ordered the Roast Lamb and Seafood Souvlaki. They were both nicely done. The roast potato is nicely done. It has a bit of a lemon favor. The rice is a bit odd as it is softer compare to other restaurants. The dinner rolls are soft and warm. Having said all that, the price is about $2-3 more than comparable greek restaurant. I guess that's the price you pay to dine on Robson Street.

The decor of the restaurant seems a bit outdated. Raised floor near the window is a good idea as it gives a better view of Robson street. However, not sure about the glass ceiling fit the decor of the restaurant.

Overall, it's a nice restaurant. I would go again if feeling hungry after shopping on Robson street.

Happy King2800 E. 1st Avenue, #258, Vancouver
Great for early dinner
Submitted Monday, May 14, 2007 - 9:16pm [Dine in]

This is a typical HK style cafe.

The best time to visit would be during the afternoon tea period as they have a discount menu. A small baked rice in 2 different sauce with grill chicken only cost $3.99 and it comes with a drink. You can't really find it elsewhere.

Service is good. However, ordered a cold drink, but they brought us the hot one. Other than that, not much complain.

The table is very tight together. Agree with the last post that don't go to the washroom.

Overall, you get your money worth.

Thai House Restaurant1766 W 7th Avenue, Vancouver
Food too salty
Submitted Saturday, May 5, 2007 - 1:21pm [Dine in]

For a dinner here, it was just average.

The deep fried cod in house sauce is too saucy and salty. Even with steamed rice, it is still very salty. Be prepared to drink a lot of water afterward. Also, the portion varies a lot. Had the traditional pad thai and pineapple fried rice and one is way bigger than the other.

Food arrive pretty fast, but the bill comes in very late. Waited 15 minutes from clearing table to getting the bill. Maybe they are just a little busy at the time the bill arrive.

The lighting is dark in the booth area. Luckily it's a sunny day in Vancouver and the sunlight is sufficient to light up the whole place.

Handi1340 Marine Drive, West Vancouver
Candle under serving dish
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2007 - 10:45pm [Dine in]

The restaurant is on the south side of marine drive. If you get the north side window seats, you get the view of Marine Drive. If you get the south side window seat, you get the wonderful view of Ambleside park. It's just amazing.

Ordered a butter chicken and it come with complementary rice. I keep wondering what's the bubble coming out of the sauce, and found out they have candle under the serving dish to keep it warm. Tandoori Chicken is served in a sizzler to keep it warm.

L'Artista Ristorante Italiano3891 E. Hasting Street, Burnaby
Decent food, Good service
Submitted Friday, April 27, 2007 - 10:52pm [Dine in]

Went there on an early Friday dinner without reservation. I was surprised that 1/3 of the restaurant is already full and the other 1/3 is reserved.

Ordered Fettuccine ai Frutti di Mare and it was pretty well made. The pasta is not over-cooked and there are lot of seafood as well.

Service is prompt and there is no need to look for the server.

Nice little Italian restaurant. Have a cozy feel. Maybe a bit too cozy that it is getting a bit tight.
