Radha Yoga and Eatery, Vancouver - Mediocre food/insanely overpriced/insipid attitude.

Radha Yoga and Eatery
728 Main Street, Vancouver British Columbia V6A 2V7

I'm vegan, gf is not. Ate here about July 30th 2010.

Upon arrival, asked the hostess if we are ok parking on the street just to the side of the entrance to the restaurant, due to confusing signage.
She had no idea, but asked the waitress and the bartender. After a 3 way conference which took several minutes, we learned that none of them had any idea.
Even if none of them drive to work, this cannot be the first time this question was asked, and is sloppy and poor customer service to not be able to answer a basic question such as this.

The waitress also had little knowledge of the menu. One of the interesting things about dining out is finding interesting dishes, ingredients, etc.
Yet both before ordering and asking questions about the items on the menu and the specials, and after the food arrived, the waitress (although friendly) seemed as if it was her first day of work whenever asked questions about the food, ingredients, etc.
She knew that she serves 2 brands of bottled water, but only knew the name of one of them.
This lack of basic knowledge of the food being served is disappointing.

The food itself was thoroughly mediocre, fairly bland, and ridiculously overpriced.

That day, Whole Foods/Capers Market was valuing the US Dollar at $1.05 Canadian in return. Starbucks was giving $1.03 Canadian for a US Dollar.

I paid the bill with a US $100 bill, and they made it an even exchange, causing us the loss of $3-5 Canadian if I'd changed the US bill at those other businesses.

Summary: Avoid this place - insipid attitude/mediocre bland food/overpriced.

Delightful Cuisine - delightful family run restaurant in Vancouver.

(This restaurant was already reviewed by ALEDM).

4 day visit to Vancouver. After having difficulty finding very good vegan/vegetarian food in Vancouver, on final night discovered this gem - small family owned restaurant, open only a few weeks. Inexpensive. A couple own it, and the woman is a vegetarian and a fantastic cook. Uses fresh, healthy, tasy ingredients.
The restaurant is vegetarian friendly, but also serves meat/fish dishes.
Makes everything herself, including the hot sauce.Vegan Vietnamese sandwich ($4.50 I believe) was delicious - gf and I got 2 each they were so good (took half of 2nd sandwich home). Also had vegan spring roll. Everything cooked fresh by the owner and a friend of hers. The night we were there, a son was taking orders - very friendly, perfect English, eager to please. My gf said we'd sit by the window. The son thought she meant outside the window, and the table they have out there was occupied. He immediately began to move an empty table outside for us, until we told him she meant inside by the window. Great customer service attitude.

I was wary of the "vegetarian ham" that came with the vegan sandwich, and the son said he'd ask his mother about the ingredients. She came out of the kitchen, and brought a plateful of the vegetarian ham to display it for us, and explained she makes it with tofu wrapped in banana leaves.
It was excellent.

My girlfriend had the sandwich with meat, and reported it was also delicious.

Leaving Vancouver the next day, we got 4 takeout sandwiches. She gave us a delicious sweet bean desert (vegan). She said she intends to make fresh vegan desserts and change them every few days.

Although they have a small menu, we would've eaten there daily if we'd known about them when we arrived.

Just like ALEDM states in his review, I hope they thrive - they deserve to.

Your #1.1.3 - Delightful Cuisine.
"It is a family-run restaurant and we hope it does well."

Exactly the sentiments of myself and my gf. Discovered it about 2 weeks ago, and would've eaten there daily if we'd been aware of the place.

Posting my own review of it on this site.

Yays and nays from Trader Joe's, lately [OLD]

Dommy mentioned "YAY!

* Thai Ginger Carrots (Frozen), I can see these become a problem at the Dommy Household..."

My girlfriend had found these and loved them.

TJ's no longer stocks them - not out of stock, but no longer ordering them at all, and now she's going through major withdrawal.

Can anyone help us find these under a different label?
(TJ often has a manufacturer package a product they are already making under the Trader Joe label).

Thanks.
