Regina Restaurants

I'm always looking for new places to try. Any interesting suggestions? What are your favourites? Restaurants/coffee shops/lounges...I'm particularly interested in relative unknowns or hole-in-the-wall type places, but I'll try anything. One place I try to go to now and then is Daisy's Pantry on 15th Ave (between Toronto and Montreal.) Everything is homemade down to the noodles in their soup.

One of my favourites is Teppanyaki on Victoria Ave. It's a Japanese steak house where you sit down (on chairs, not floor) and the chef makes everything in front of you on a flat grill. Great atmosphere and fantastic food.

A couple of hole in the walls that get my approval are Sparky's and Orange Izakaya. Sparky's makes a really solid pizza that's almost as good as Houston or Tumblers and costs way less ($20 for an extra large). Orange is a little place next to the 13th Ave Safeway that makes really authentic Japanese dishes in a cool, modern bar atmosphere. They also have a cappuccino machine if you just want to have a mocha latte and sit on their cozy deck.

Somebody drove a car into the front of 20Ten today. Apparently lost control backing out of the alley and did a 180. Wow.

For the best Indian food in the city, and meets the hole in the wall criteria, try Caraway Grill. Best to make reservations or else you won't get in!

I agree with this. Great food there. It's really small, so you can always do take out as well.

Speaking of other really small places... Siam on Hamilton. Delicious as well. And you can do a take-out buffet at lunch if it's too busy.

Completely agree. I order the lunch special for pick up every now and then. Enough food for two lunches.

Interesting because I really like Flavours of India on Vic East. I might have to try this Caraway Grill.

Really like Fireside Bistro. Their risotto is outstanding.

There is a new and wonderful place on the east side of town, it is called: I Love Sushi, located just north of the Husky House.

There is another new Chinese restaurant near there as well, on the North Service Road: the old Bonanza. Pretty good stuff too!

Urban Sushi in Emerald Park is quite good with lots of options for non-sushi people as well.

Ate at Siam on Friday. It was fantastic. Such a nice restaurant. Make reservations, a few couples and groups were turned away.

There's a much better vibe downtown these days with a couple of extra taverns open on Scarth and Hamilton. Just seemed a bit livelier after 6:00pm, although Atlantis was a ghost town around 8:00pm. I would have expected more traffic. We need a theatre downtown!

The Chinese restaurant on Eastgate Drive (the old Buddy's / Alfredo's) is called China Liang's. I have eaten there several times since it opened and I just love their buffet. Best Chinese buffet in town, IMO. Lots of choices, fresh, tasty and they are continually refilling the trays, unlike some other Chinese buffets in town. I highly recommend it, but shhh! Don't tell everyone as it is getting pretty busy at times.

China Liang's is pretty good for Chinese buffet. My wife also likes Dynasty in Wingate Hotel, Downtown. Hopefully, as Regina's population grows, a (any) Chinese Buffet restaurant will evolve or locate here to be something like Dragon Pearl Buffet (trendy, super buffet), which includes a manned (with chef or food preparer) station each for dim sum, sushi, BBQ and specialty items (Think BBQ pork, Peking duck!), creating your own stir fry, etc.

Some other Asian food places we've enjoyed around town include Miso Ya, Sake, I Like Sushi, I Love Sushi, Da India Curry House, Flavours of India, Spices of Punjab for all-you-can-eat; Teppanyaki, sort of fine dining and food prep entertainment; Wasabi, Korea House, Viet Thai, Thai Gardens, Mai Phuong, Ngoc Van, Nhu Y Tea Tree.

Some of the Chinese restaurants we frequent for family outings are Regency Palace, Peking House, Lee's Chop Suey East, Four Seas, J&A. J&A makes great dim sum, which we'll often order for pick up, pretty well any time during opening hours!

For more takeout, Milu's Fresh Rolls and Subs, makes a pretty good "Charbroiled BBQ Pork" rice plate, or "Meatballs" rice plate! For Chinese pastries, China Pastry usually has a good selection of sweet, savoury and dessert buns (eg. coconut, cream, hot dog, onion & chives, egg or egg & ham, BBQ pork, or red bean fillings, baked in or on a browned, sweet, doughy bun), cakes, egg tarts, etc.

Not sure if you're joking about needing a reservation or not...

I walk by the place all the time and it always smells soooo amazing.. We went once, and the food was definitely good, but pricey.

But we went at 5:30 during the week, and were the only people in there the whole time we ate.. When we walked in, the owner was sitting at a table with his feet on the table and seemed surprised at someone coming in.. At supper time.. Haha.

But man, the smell that comes out of that place is absolute heaven.

Our go to Indian place is Spices of punjab.. So good and so cheap for a buffet.

I think I've tried all the East Indian places in town at this point and they're all great in their own rights. Caraway Grill has fantastic, authentic food with powerful spices and flavours. It has my mouth watering just thinking about it. I always go to Flavours of India when having company over or just needing a good meal because it's more mainstream and easier on the stomach while still being super tasty. Spices of Punjab was really good although with CG and FoI around I don't know why I'd choose this place over those two. Da India Curry House was a distant fourth, I wasn't a fan of the food that I ordered, maybe I need to try something else that they make but I don't think I'll go back.
