We went for dinner last night and did not enjoy our meals or experience. Service was very slow..it took over 15mins for our drinks to arrive and it was not busy. We ordered a vodka/ juice and a ceasar so they should have been quick to make. Our dinner was not very good either. We had some falafel fritters (awful) they were really dry and had a bland flavor. For our mains we had the steak and the butter chicken. I have had butter chicken at numerous restaurants and this one was not good. The table beside us ordered it too and did not like it either. Definitely not made from scratch or authentic tasting. My husband ordered the steak and it was burnt tasting. The chef made a new one and it was better. It's a 6 ounce steak but very thin and chewy. The mushrooms on top however were good! We do not recommend this place for dinner. It was also pretty pricy. Do mind paying a lot for dinner but when the food is not good it's not worth the price. It was a nice atmosphere. Seemed cozy. For lunch you must try the subs at 540 deli. Delicious!!

In late November, we had the fortunate opportunity to visit the Sun Peaks resort, north of Kamloops, B.C. for a four day ski holiday. Needless to say, we were totally impressed with the ski hill in general, as well as, the friendly atmosphere we were greeted with each day. However, one of the real surprises that we found in this small, resort community was a little restaurant called “Black Garlic Bistro”. This culinary gem is owned and operated by Kristen Passmore (General Manager) and Chef Robert Erickson (also of Central Bistro in Vancouver) and provides a warm ambiance, an intriguing array of Asian fusion delights and a delectable wine list. We ate there a number of times over our stay and we kept returning to their restaurant in order to continue our adventure off the hill. Multiple times we would debate where we wanted to eat, but the Black Garlic would top the list. Thanks again to Chef Robert, Kristen and the staff at Black Garlic Bistro for adding to our wonderful stay with a daily gastronomic adventure.

During our Christmas ski vacation we decided to try Black Garlic after looking at their posted menu and description of the delicacy of black garlic. Unfortunately all entrees were bland. When the waiter asked we explained how the Latska was a bland soupy bowl without much of the promised tiger prawns and shredded beef, the waiter said he would talk to the chef about making an adjustment. The adjustment was to bring a bowl of plain rice which they charged me $3 for. You can do much better in Sun Peaks.
