    Nacchooos. Probably the best nachos I have ever had. Nice and filling with great toppings and pretty dang cheap. Split a large with guacamole with 4 guys and we got decently filled for 5 bucks each.

    Spicy peanut is amazing! If you like thai curry try Final option. If you like indian curry, get Tropic option. Downside: expect to be screaming at your friends because the music is way too loud.

    Great music (hip hop and rap from the 90s) great vegan food and great price ($12 for a large meal). Overall id say this is a pretty decent place to chill with your friends.

    A restaurant that has a sign saying "come for the cheese, stay for the vibe" and blasts old school hip/hop from its speakers can't be anything but awesome. The nachos are heaven.

    Try the nachos. You won't be disappointed. There aren't many places in Vancouver where you can feed a family of four, along with a couple of beers, for about $20!

    Cheap all-vegetarian restaurant with great food. The nachos are divine & if you are not sure what to try, order the 'Katered Affair'. Warning, service is abysmal.

    Decent food but service is extremely minimal, it takes a while for them to finally come back around to take your order let alone any other requests

    Favorite restaurant in town. Can't go wrong with the nachos or the spicy p'nut. The BLT is mind-blowing too.

    You have to question a food establishment that allows a server to wear a t-shirt and just underwear during service.

    I don't recommend the molton tofu. The food doesn't seem like restaurant food but more like the food you get when you visit your hippie friend circa 1990.
