An astonishing find.

We had driven all day from Vancouver, BC, and checked into the new Best Western next door (also a great discovery). What an unassuming exterior, in a strip mall next to a gas station! Do not be deceived. The food and the service in Hay J's is nothing less than great. One of the best racks of lamb... read more

Great food! Prices are a little on the expensive side, especially for lunch. Service is always top notch and good selection of local beers and wines.

We pulled in to the BW next door - a little later than we expected and I asked where can we go to eat. The clerk said - Try Hay J's next door. Now I saw it when we pulled in - next to a gas station??? Well don;t let the location fool you. This is an excellent little place.... More

I love this little place. When you tell your friends, 'it's the restaurant next to the gas station', they always do a double take. This restaurant is very quaint with a stellar menu and great spirits. I highly recommend it for a special occasion of friends night out.

We were guests of Best Western next door and wanted a quick easy salad to take out. The salad was fresh and delicious. We were very impressed!

The food was presented well and the atmosphere was pleasant. The staff were not friendly but maybe they were all having a bad day.

Went to the place a few years back and loved it, good food and good prices but the parking sucked. went back a few months ago and was shocked on how much the price went up, and the parking still sucked.

I've never seen my husband eat so slow. He savored every bite of the New York Strip with a peppercorn demi glaze. It was so delicious,I could've eaten it like soup. Our waiter, Christian, recommended a glass of 'Five Star Cab' to go with it. It's $15 a glass, but so worth it. Again, never seen my husband extend that... More

So decided to beat the rush and take my wife out the day before Mother's day. Recently friends and family had raved about Hay J's Bistro. I got a reservation, a must, at least a day before. You will be a little shocked to find the restaurant next to a gas station. You will probably need to park in weeds... More

It's a little bit of an odd spot for such a great restaurant but we were happy we found it. The service staff were excellent and very involved with ensuring you felt welcome and the food was beautifully presented and had great flavours. The menu has terrific selections at very low to reasonable prices. You will be happy you chose... More
