Respond to Review of 3G Vegetarian Restaurant
by tcassels

Review: It was truly bad especially compared to the other options, like Bo Kong, in Vancouver. My husband and I went there for an early dinner one night about a month ago. The food was mediocre while eating it, but shortly thereafter I began feeling sick which lasted throughout the night. My husband then got horribly sick and was up throwing up half the night. Never again will we go near that place - I don't know how you mess up vegan food (I imagine the sauces were left out too long), but they managed to. On top of that, the servers wouldn't leave us alone. Kept telling us things and we were trying to have some 'us' time.

I am really surprised. I and my spouse have eaten here well over a dozen times in the last three months.
Everything is always tasty, well presented and terrific service.

Getting sick and vomiting? It seems unlikely to be the food from here responsible; I would suggest it had to be something eaten earlier because one doesn't vomit that quickly as the result of food poisoning ( ie right there during the meal), it takes usually more than one hour. Consult a physician, ask them about this incident.

Anyhow, I would encourage anyone who has read this post to still eat at 3G's..
Nope, I don't own any shares in the place either!!
Just, there are really rather few really good veggie places in Vancouver,
I want this one, my favourite, to stick around for years!!

My husband was the one who was sick-sick and it was the right time after (we went for dinner around 6pm and he started throwing up at 2am). The simply not feeling well was me and that was echoed by another friend who tried to eat there. Trust me - as a vegan, I'm always looking for good places, but this is one we'll avoid from now on!!!

I'm glad it's worked out well for you though!

I don't mean to cast doubt on your review. I'm sure you did get sick, but from your description of events, the jury is out on whether the food at 3G was responsible. You say you got sick shortly after eating there. This is plausible, because the incubation period can be as short as 30 mins. However, the incubation period for most foodborne illness is hours or even days. You might have gotten sick from something you ate 24 to 48 hours previously, so it's pretty hard to pinpoint exactly what made you sick. Also, if the sauces were to blame, then surely everyone who ate there that night would have become sick, and I haven't been able to find a single other report of food poisoning connected with this restaurant.

By the way, I have no vested interest in 3G. In fact, I have never even been there! I just think it's not so simple to point fingers at businesses when it comes to things like food poisoning, which is a very serious allegation.
