Mali Thai2710 Main Street, Vancouver
Nice but not the best
Submitted Wednesday, October 7, 2009 - 3:02am [Dine in]

I've read the previous reviews and thought I would give it a try.

I was amaze that they actually deliver to my place (around Granville and 70th) considering they are located on Main and 12th! No extra charge, no complain. They did inform that it will take 45 minute and they were not late. The delivery man is very friendly.

Ambiance- I didn't eat there so I'm not sure.

This is what I order,

Crispy wonton- It was greasy and you'd never find this in Thailand (yam stuffing). It usually stuff with ground pork. I like it, but it's an adaptation. $3.95 for 10 pieces is rather cheap.

Tom Kah Gai- Nice and light, not oily. The chicken is very tender. This dish come with lot of chicken and some mushroom. $5.95, good portion.

Green curry- Nice clean taste. The chicken is tender. Only come with eggplant. Usually there would be more variety of veg. While it is quite good, it doesn't have the taste of the authentic green curry. $6.95, worth the money.

Lad Na- They don't use fresh rice noodle. It was most likely a dried package one. With "Lad Na", fresh rice noodle is a must. The noodle was hard, oily, and have a weird oil aftertaste. The gravy also have a weird aftertaste and is tasteless. They use broccoli and carrot instead of chinese broccoli (Kai Lan) The pork was unpleasent as well. $8.95, Not expensive compare to other place. But taste need improvement.

Tastewise, The curry and the soup is very good. But not authentic. I would guess that the chef is not Thai. I'm not sure, it's just my opinion. I'm Thai and it doesn't taste much like Thai food.

This is my first time trying this restuarant out, I think it's the best but some dishes worth trying.

Grand Honour Hot Pot Restaurant5668 Granville Street, Vancouver
Good food/HORRIBLE service!
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

I went there a few times. I have to say I love their hot pot. Good selection of meat and veggie. The soup was good. They also have cooked food but I have never try it yet.

The service was HORRIBLE!
They book us in at 5pm and when we go in they said they not open yet. After being told we have to wait 30 minute, we were actually seated for 45 minute before they take our order.

We have to ask for our dish 3-4 times before we actually get it. We ask for more sauce and they said ok and just disappear.

We usually tip 10 % to 15 % according to the service. But since it was such a horrible experience we only tip 1$. They call 3 other person over and make a big fuss out of it. We explain politely that the service wasn't good and we didn't get our food. They still demand tips and at that point we laugh and left. If they were actually trying to serve us but was busy I would tip them more. But they weren't even trying at all.

Chubby Lamb Hot Pot Restaurant8391 Alexandra Road, #2160, Richmond
Fresh food/Attentive servers
Submitted Tuesday, October 6, 2009 - 8:45pm [Dine in]

They have english menu, but no english order paper. But the server was very nice and patient as we tell them what we want.

The food is fresh and yummy. They have stuff like beef, lamb, pork neck, pork organ, pork/beef/prawn/fish ball, squid, oyster, mussle, shrimp, fish paste, variety of noold, variety of veg, etc.

The soup that we try was "chubby lamb soup" and "mushroom soup", it was rather tasteless, may be a little salt would make it better.

It was busy, but there was servers walking by every 5 minutes, filling tea, soup, taking in more order.

Overal experience is excellent! Best service I ever got from a hot pot place.
Tastewise, I would go there again but it's probably not something I'll be craving or dying to eat.

Khai Thai Cuisine2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Port Coquitlam
Good but not authentic
Submitted Tuesday, March 17, 2009 - 4:27am [Dine in]

Service was friendly and ambiance was nice.

Food wasn't very authentic and I'd prefer "Wimann Thai Cuisine" on broadway/oak over "Khai Thai Cuisine"
Most of the dishes I ate was too salty.
The ingredients are not Thai, They use chinese noodle and there's a hugh different.

Food are not adapt to Western taste, more like they don't even know how to make it in the first place. Some dish have no trace of Thai taste left at all.

When I went there the owner would walk around grudging because the toilet was broken and he walk back and forth fixing it.
Which wasn't very considerate since we were eating and he walk right next to us many times in and out of the washroom.

Tony's Fish & Oyster Cafe1511 Anderson St, Vancouver
Great food!
Submitted Tuesday, November 4, 2008 - 12:48am [Dine in]

I went there many times and food is alway fresh and delicious.
The portion and quality is well worth the price.
Their clam chowder is pretty good as well.
I love their seafood platter, i think this is a real deal if you want seafood but don't feel like fish and chip.
Their fish and chip come nice and crispy on the outside and nice and juicy on the inside. Usually server with Coleslaw and tartare sauce, if you want extra tartare is $0.50.
Price range from $7 to $20

Friendly little chill spot in the market in Granville island.
They serve hot or cold tea of all kind.
It located across a little asian food market, get something to go and shop around for food. Or drink your tea there and watch people goes by, or talk to the tea maker, they are friendly. Customer range from Teens to Elderly, they all love the place.
Ask for Eliot, she make awesome tea! ;)

Great food, slow service but that's because they are so busy but it could be a little bit better.
Nice and friendly owner.

Maruchu Japanese BBQ Dining4580 No. 3 Road, #2065, Richmond
Great food!
Submitted Tuesday, November 4, 2008 - 12:26am [Dine in]

I went there with my sister tonight.
The food is awesome, really tasty.
The service is great, very attentive. However, the food was a little bit slow and there were no one at all eating at the time. We went in at 6pm Monday and we were wondering why no one eat here, because the food is soooo yummy.

We order:
2 Kimchi, 2 Pork cheek (Ton Toro), 1 Pork Belly, 1 Pork Belly with Maruchu special sauce, 1 Chicken, 1 Kalbi Tare (marinated boneless beef rib), 1 Kalbi with green onion, 1 Harami (skirt steak-OMG SO YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), 1 seaweed soup, 1 bean sprout soup, and 3 rice.

The damage was $91.50, with tax it's $96.08

it's about $7 to $10 per dish, $4 for kimchi and soup, $2 for rice.

Other than DIY BBQ (they also have things like beef tongue, beef liver, lamb, spicy curry chicken, for bbq.) they also have bibimbap, bibim noodle, cold noodle, etc.

A little hard to find the restaurant, you can barely see the sign, but you won't regret it.
