IKEA RICHMOND REOPENED
IKEA RESTAURANT AND BISTRO
LIKED: Prices and unique Swedish cuisine.
DISLIKE: Paper plates for hot food seemed flimsy. Meatball dish needs more mashed potatoes!
IKEA Restaurant and Bistro are open for business. The Restaurant and Bistro were closed for much of the pandemic but recently reopened. New Physical Distancing measures include plastic divider at the counter and cashless transactions. Foodies rejoice!
At the Bistro there are self-ordering kiosks. You can also scan items from the market at the kiosk. NO CASH. ONLY CARDS are accepted.
Pizza, Hot dogs, soft serve yogurt. The Bistro is perfect for a quick bite after walking around the IKEA maze. The menu is under $5. You can’t beat the prices!
2 Hot Dogs and a Fountain Drink $2.50
All condiments are added by the server behind the counter. No more self-serve ketchup.
Self-serve drink station.
They have Swedish flavour Lingonberry as well as sugar free cola and Nordic fruit water. There’s also coffee, and milk/creamer dispenser.
At IKEA you’re allowed FREE REFILLS but are required to get a new cup for every refill. The cups, lids and straws are made from paper and are biodegradable.
IKEA Restaurant is open at 11:30AM Monday to Saturday and
11AM on Sunday. Breakfast has been removed from the menu! Grab a hot dog or pizza while you wait for the restaurant to open.
Lots of space has been created in the IKEA dining area for Physical Distancing. Less seating means get there early or don’t get a table!
Salmon Fillet $9.99
Salmon with GRÖNSAKSKAKA potato cake and veggies.
Swedish meatballs $8.45
Meatballs plus Extra Meatballs $1.99
Shrimp Sandwich Räksmörgås $5.4
Smoked Salmon $6.49
Nice mashed potatoes with gravy.
Too bad the portion size is very small. IKEA should put more than one scoop!
Nice shrimp sandwich.
Good amount of shrimp and egg. The bread was soft. A traditional Swedish favorite.
$-$$ AFFORDABLE! FAIR PRICE. Bistro menu is under $5. Restaurant menu around $10.
OK! Ok flavours and portion size. Hot food is served warm Swedish style.
Small portion of mashed potato with the meatballs for the price.
OK! Food served fast at Bistro and Restaurant. No self-serve condiments at Bistro. They could use condiment paper cups. Server might put too much too little ketchup, or mustard. At the restaurant cheap paper plates for hot food are flimsy.
Overall, SATISFIED. IKEA is a good place to get cheap eats, and Swedish cuisine.
