“Good food, but nothing special”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I normally avoid chains, but group consensus decided upon this place.
Our first choice, Cactus Club Cafe had a long waiting list, and I would rather diet than eat at Boston Pizza.

The thing about Richmond is the plethora of Asian restaurants, I eat it about once or twice a month in Montreal, but living here would mean having it almost daily. It really limits what one could eat, especially without knowing the area and not having a car.

Having said that, the food was decent, nothing memorable, but not unpleasant.

I had the bishop curry chicken (Indian dishes have hit the mainstream!), which was tangy and flavorful. I got the feeling it tasted like a quality frozen dinner. The dish was too complex to be prepared that quickly.

I had the dry ribs as well, first time having this dish, it was dry and had very little meat on the bones.

The ambiance is cozy and family friendly, with banquet seats with lots of vinyl and wood.

The menu is just too large and varied to be all fresh and non frozen, the prices were quite decent though.

“Food good but service was slow”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Generally a good restaurant but the service was slow. It took quite some time to get a bill and then to pay the bill

“Good service! Ok food.”
Reviewed January 5, 2012

The service was very good. The food was average for this type of chain restaurant, though they do have a good selection. It was as we expected.

“Very good food and service.”
Reviewed June 24, 2011

The food was very good and the service was decent. They had good pasta and some extra things that helped. There could be a long line but there wasn't alway. The waitresses were very nice and when something wasn't right they would make it correct and also very quickly.
