There's a pretty good Vietnamese place in Richmond called Green Lemongrass - it's on Westminster Highway near 3 Road. Very good stuff. The service isn't the best, but the food's great.
We went to Rosie's on Robson after the hockey game a couple of Sundays ago. My food was fabulous, but the bf ordered this chicken curry that should have been called chopped onions in cream. Gross, gross, gross. He complained, but the waitress just said that's how they made it. No attempt at any type of reconciliation.
Had a business lunch at Il Giardino on Tuesday. Opposite of the above. The service was fantastic. The food was great. Nice that I didn't have to pay, too
