Is this a new establishment? I've never heard of it before; but then again, I've been in Edmonton for awhile now.

Yes, let's hear about more Winnipeg restaurants on SSP than Yuki Sushi!

But I must say, they seem to be doing well. I was there today, as it happens, and a friend who works there says they were busy all day.

For other new dining excusions on North Main, I suggest The Tallest Poppy at Main and Logan.

Has anyone been to the Princess Grill?

Awesome breakfast and great place to get some fries and burgers. Cheap as hell too.

Who's tried Silver Heights Restaurant? I tell you, they never disappoint. Their ribs are excellent and their prime rib is the best. A must for meat lovers. Try the steak too. BTW, they accept Canadian Tire money at par, even at the lounge.

Haven't been to Tallest Poppy yet - do you know who is running it? I understand its a woman who ran a restaurant previous to this?

Love Princess Grill for good basic eats.

Was at Inferno's today for lunch - yum. Good lunch specials. Yesterday Kum Koon for dim sum. I am getting fat.

It's a couple of ladies who live in Point Douglas. I don't know what their previous restaurant experience is, but they make exceptional food. Like Nordique said, they don't have Burger King prices (lunch would set you back $9-$11), but worth it, I'd say.


Princess Grill is good, but their fat-boys don't hold a candle to the king of all fat-boys: VJ's Drive-In on South Main.

They catered our christmas lunch at work for 5 yrs (40 people) and it was OK, but never outstanding.

We now use Gasthaus Guttenburg...amazing german restaurant on Portage (just near Silver Heights). They also have a lunch buffet on thur and fri, runs $11 or so. it's amazing...schnitzel, sausage, kraut, goulash, perogies, 3 kinds of gravy, etc etc etc. tons of deserts like strudel, dainties and whip cream on the side of course. oh yeah they also have 3 kinds of gravy and there's pieces of bacon in the bread. ahhhhhhhhhhh, cant wait to go again. its so hard to work after that.

Garwood Grill serves up large portions at great prices. I mainly go for the burgers though, so I can't comment on the rest of the menu.

If I'm in the mood for Samosa's, India Palace on Ellice is the place to go.

Alicia's is probably the best for Ukrainian food in Winnipeg, if you aren't so lucky as to have you very own persoal baba (grandmother) that makes food no restaurant could ever compete with.

Fortunately, I'm not in that boat!

Pasquale's on Marion is a great Italian restaurant.
Sweet Palace on Pembina has great East Indian. They have a nice small lunch and supper buffer too.
Bellisimo on Waverley is another great spot for Italian.
I was also thoroughly impressed by Confusion Corner Bar and Grill. The ribs were excellent. I've heard the rooftop patio is not the best though.
