44 Kingsway, Vancouver, Canada


12 Oct 2012

+ decent portions
+ accessible location

- I HATE it when stupid hipsters with greasy full beards or moustaches prepare my food
- mediocre flavours
- now my own home is far from immaculate, but if I was serving food, I'd at least have a clean-looking environment

ugg, no

12 Oct 2012

a vegan dinner companion got some real cheese in her supposedly vegan salad, gross!
So was that incompetence or carelessness? either way, it sux.
My chili was decent, but unspectacular
I abhor hipsters, especially when their stereotypical apathy affects my vegan food
and its accompanying inattentive customer service
Shoddy vegan selection
My first, and very likely last visit as a vegan.
For vegans, don't bother; vegetarians, ok, I guess.

Vegan 'Nammer guy reviews Vietnamese restaurant

12 Oct 2012

+ nice, authentic flavours
+ decent portions
+ friendly staff
+ for an omnivore, the head chef
is fairly knowledgeable about veganism
+ closes at 10pm, which is good

- the serving staff is not as knowledgable as they should be
- obviously taste is subjective,
but some dishes are good, while some are meh

PLEASE, all you vegans out there, suggest to the restaurant that they go 100% vegan, (hehe, 3G).
After some 3rd-party, verification, I would love to one day see this resto listed as a "vegan restaurant".

so relaxing.....zzzzz....

12 Oct 2012

+ serene atmosphere
+ rice pudding was tasty

- food was merely competent in flavour
- service was inconsistent from one server to the next
- non-descript outside storefront (you might miss it if you haven't been back for awhile)

Review by a Vietnamese vegan

06 Jan 2012

+I had never been a huge fan of regular pho, but vegan pho=mmm
+their food is also very much liked by a close omnivore friend of mine, where he & I make the long car trip from Vancouver about twice a month, which says alot
+very good prices +nice, authentic flavours +no msg
+wide range of menu items +consistent quality

-minimal staffing, so Fri/Sat nights are very busy
-inattentive service -location is not transit friendly
-located in northeast Burnaby, in a weird mall plaza out in the middle of nowhere

+++I've been vegetarian for 11 years & vegan for 7; this is my favourite restaurant in the Vancouver area. If it was within walking distance from my house, I'd visit at least twice a week
.....the downsides, I can live with, so I'd still have to give it a 5/5

Don't go here if u are vegan

06 Jan 2012

=having a long history in this city and being well known among part time vegetarians doesn't justify all of the accolades that this place gets year in & year out
=the food there was passable

+open 24 hours
+nice environment

-in my experience, poor service
-do not go here if you are vegan

---the longer that I've been vegan, the more paranoid I've become, so the last time I was there, the server ended up getting ahold of the kitchen ingredients binder for all of their menu items, and to me, it seemed that several of what I expected to be vegan items, in fact, had dairy byproducts. Not trace amounts, but actually as an ingredient. So ever since then, I have yet to go back, and will likely never go back there again.
I have now started down that slippery slope of not completely trusting "vegetarians" when it comes to genuine vegan food....

mmm, pizza

12 Oct 2012

+ pizza like how it should be
+ decent selection of toppings
+ pretty cool to be able to get vegan pizza-by-the-slice
+ non-pizza items are good
+ run (almost?) exclusively by vegans

- delivery service is spotty (I'm told that as sales go up, delivery service will improve)
- prices are merely ok; conventional pizza joints give you relatively more pizza for your buying dollar
- "eat-in" price NEEDS to be the same as "pick-up" price,
as the only reason a pizza joint ever charges more for a pizza
is to pay for the delivery guy,
so yeah, please point this out to them
