Pelagos Greek Restaurant2728 O'Hara Lane, Surrey
poor experience at Pelagos at crescent Beach
By Ruthnum of White Rock , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

As a patron of this restaurant on monday September 4, 2017 My family and I a party of 10 had a horrible experience. We booked the restaurant and when we arrived were told to sit anywhere we wanted. It was a very hot night and the ventilation was very poor and stuffy and there was no Blinds on the window to block some of the effect of the sun. We ordered 2 bottles of wine and this came promptly and the server brought us a glass of water each. Ordered appetizers which also came within a reasonable time. Meanwhile the one taking reservations (A 13 year old kid kept adding a lot of Drop in customers which is their prerogative but when we started asking for service were told that Two servers did not turn up for work. Looking at how this establishment is run I am not surprised and our main course arrived. In the meantime we had requested for Water on FOUR occasions before it materialised and my wife felt sorry FOR THE SERVER AND SHE POURED THE WATER FOR THOSE WHO NEEDED IT.

It was such a horrible experience and likely even though we live locally, will not support this establishment. I should note that we ate at the GREEK in Vancouver and was a Great experience and comparing the food was also better. The Restaurant management was putting the patrons at risk of Health Issues because of the poor Environment and poor ventilation. I will also contact the City of Surrey and the Fraser Health board about my concerns. Is it legal to employ a 13 year old kid, which is the age the Owner told my wife when she phoned the Restaurant and voiced our concerns.

Thai Son Vietnamese373 E. Broadway, Vancouver
Food is great but super bad service
By jasonpal of Surrey , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - 6:55am [Dine in]

I was dining here with my friends the other day. Food was ok. However, their service was so bad. My friend wanted to ordered drip ice coffee. I had helped him to put the order. The server (older lady) had mistakenly tried to make two. I had explicitly told her its only one order. But said to me she already have "pressed" meaning she already have activated. Clearly, she hasn't poured hot water in the coffee drip cup yet. In the end, she ended up making two drip ice coffee and charged me for the second when clearly she made a mistake on the order. I was NOT happy about that. I will not set foot at this location for Thai Son ever again!

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria1380 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Soggy
By Norman of Vancouver East (80 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 3, 2017 - 7:25am [Dine in]

I have eaten here twice, so I know it wasn't an off day. The pizza crust is soggy, and that's not
"Neapolitan" by any stretch. I have eaten pizza all over Italy, and I never had a soggy crust. I think it may be because their sauce is watery. The sauce isn't very tangy either, so maybe it should have a rethink. Anyway, if you are going to claim to be Neapolitan you should try to be authentic. Excellent and attentive service, though.

Takis Taverna1106 Davie Street, Vancouver
Takis disappointed on consistency
By Scott Wallace of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2017 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

This is an update of a third visit for consistency checking, and for a new meal of calamari.

Updating an earlier review here and on my private food blog (don't give the address to restaurants...but currently 5, 923 followers).

Initially, I had given them a great review. Really great. But I always suprise with another visit and check for consistency.

In the interest of hoping the feedback is helpful, and not unreasonable.

Very disappointed.

1. The grilled calamari which was highly recommended was such a small portion I really couldn't believe. Plus too salty. Maybe the latter is personal preference, but my husband found it very salty. Haven't tried the fried calamari but he won't go back.

2. THe lamb. I thought it was oddly oily (a huge pool of oil again, dripped outside of the bag and I still had a quarter inch of it sitting in the take-out container. And I weighed it...the bone and the fat were 65% of the meat. The only edible meat, which was delicious, was approximately 1/3 of the what I paid for! This was a seriously horrible piece of lamb.

Felt really bad and hope my initial review is not misleading complementary.

I don't know if I can try it again but we are definitely back to Stephos one more time to compare and I should definitely give Takis another chance.

One positive note, they were very generous in offering an ouzo while we waited for the takeout (which is always quite speedy...but they're not that busy so speed is not surprising).

Pelagos Greek Restaurant2728 O'Hara Lane, Surrey
Failed to deliver satisfaction
By katesville of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, August 27, 2017 - 10:44am [Dine in]

So I was very excited to try Pelagos - and upon arrival and being seated out on the waterfront patio, I thought..."this could be my new go to place". Great location, fantastic view and best of all my favorite food - Greek! Unfortunately the food did not live up to the expectations. I myself make a great souvlaki feast. So I know what goes into it and I would NEVER serve my guests the food that I received at Pelagos. I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the food. Everything, right down to the rice and the greek salad, was tasteless. I don't think that any seasoning whatsoever was used in the preparation. The lemon potatoes were floating in grease - good thing they only gave us one SMALL wedge (I mean seriously people - its a POTATO - i'm sure the price for your dish warrants at least 1/2 to a whole potato per person!). It boggles my brain that restaurants that "specialize" can take so little pride in what they are serving. I mean you are a GREEK restaurant - so make the best damn greek food that you can make!! If you are an ITALIAN restaurant - then I expect that I'm going to come there and experience great Italian food. Its not rocket science. If you are challenged by a too large menu and trying to keep up - then limit your menu selections, so you can focus on serving up those dishes in a manner that will keep people coming back. I'm tired of paying large amounts of money for dinners that fail to deliver any satisfaction whatsoever. Take some pride in what you are making - its your business - your choice - your representation.

Submitted Wednesday, August 16, 2017 - 9:22am [Dine in]

A great location with free gated and secure parking for guests.
They serve schnitzel here currently and it is fabulous...I would recommend you come and try their very reasonably priced food and very cheap drinks! You can play pool or darts here for free when you order a cocktail ,pint of beer or some food. I would recommend all of them!

For locals who want to walk to a venue that is super affordable , clean and welcoming this is it.
If you are looking for a young and trendy place to go then this isn't it but for the price and quality i don't care.

This place is a non profit organization and you are required to sign a guest book when you walk in but that's easy. Their membership is super affordable as well. Go in and try them out .

The kitchen is only open Wednesday - Sat from 5pm though.

Fish Counter, The3825 Main Street, Vancouver
Bad Fish and Chips
By Basilseal of North Vancouver District (32 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, August 13, 2017 - 3:45pm [Dine in]

I like fish and chips, but this was bad. The fish (cod) was over battered and over cooked and it had a burnt greasy taste. The chips were just ok as was the coleslaw. If you want good fish and chips try Montgomery's (Lonsdale Quay) or Go Fish (Granville Island).
I also took a look at the fresh fish on display; in my opinion the fish available at your local Save On Foods is much better, as the fish here looked liked it had been sitting around too long.

A solid restaurant.
By vancouverpiggie of burnaby (54 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 10, 2017 - 11:52am [Dine in]

I've dined here twice, both for the dinner buffets.

Once was the regular dinner priced - I think 14.99 - and the other was their Tuesday all day buffet special price of 7.99.

This place isn't big and for the regular price, I probably wouldn't come here that often when compared to other indian buffet joints around the GVRD because of the small selection (Around 7 main dishes + 2-3 salad dishes).

But at 7.99 Tuesday special, it's a bargain if you're craving for some fast, filling indian food. However, Tuesday selection I do have to say you get what you pay for. The salad bar and some of the mains are nearly empty and refilled very slowly.

Taste-wise, it's on the lighter side. Not too oily, not too salty but at times, lacking in spices too. The raita and coconut rice dessert are very watered down though during the Tuesday buffet last time I had ate it.

This place has freshly prepared naan brought right to your table if you'd like.

Utensils and plates are all very clean. Bathroom is clean.

The best mains were the fish and patak paneers. Butter chicken and tandoori chicken have very little flavor. Although this place advertises goat curry, I have not seen any in all of my visits in the buffet.

I would return, but only for the Tuesday specials.

Food great - service lacking.
By AshleyWallison of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, August 2, 2017 - 5:51pm [Dine in]

I'm giving 1 star not because of the food but because of the service. One young Asian lady (20-30 years old) with above the shoulder hair that is streaked brown is the rudest employee I've ever come across. She speaks badly about customers in front of them in another language, doesn't offer certain tables the free rice, soup, and egg roll (she brings them to other tables without being asked), and rolls her eyes at customers behind their backs. I love the food here but after multiple incidents with her I doubt I will be back.

Ming & Sing Chinese Express20090 Langley Bypass, #20, Langley
Do Better!!!!
By me3vanc of Cloverdale (18 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 1, 2017 - 9:49pm [Take-out]

A while ago I wrote a complaint to Ming Sing about this location - dirty front glass and no selection.

Then the Clayton location opened and it was busy and the food was very good. I ordered from there at least once a week.

Then Clayton closed and sign said to go the Langley Bypass location. Some of staff were the same. This location was not on my way home so went there less often.

Tonight I went there about 6pm (Tuesday). I was tired. Selection was not good. I chose my 3 entree selection and was surprised that it all went into one container. More surprised when I got home to find the King Pao Chicken on top of the sesame chicken. Hmmm. Sesame chicken was still too chewy to eat. The ginger pork was beyond chewy. I am a senior. Usually I eat half for one meal and the other half the next night. Tonight I ate the chow mein and threw the rest out. Not impressed!!! I like your store. DO BETTER! I will try a different location next time.

Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood Pub3728 Clark Drive, Vancouver
Such a great venue,such horrible service and sub-par food
By shutupandeat of Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, July 28, 2017 - 9:23am [Dine in]

Sports teams and leagues, if you're looking for a post-game watering hole... The Cedar Cottage is not the pub.
Our small league of Thursday night ball players experienced the go-around all season (14 weeks) from Cedar Cottage Pub (CCP).

From promised team specials and food discounts that did not happen. This entire season and experience was just frustrating for the customer. Week after week we had our post game drinks and dinner and week after week we had to remind the server that our ball team (we have uniforms) were to get food discounts as promised by their manager. "Sorry, but your group is too small for a discount" to "Sorry, but your group is too big for a discount tonight". What a joke.
We gave the CCP 1 week's notice that our League Wrap-up would be happening and if they could reserve tables for 50 people and provide us dinner specials. We followed up the day before and was promised they were ready for us.
We arrived Thursday night (our usual night) and 1) they did not have our reservation or our table ready; 2) they did not have menu specials for us; 3) our group was too large for a discount; 4) they were short-staffed and were not able to serve us in a timely manner.

Summary
If you have a fun night planned and are looking for a place to go with friends. Give CCP a pass. This is not your friendly neighbourhood pub.

The Manager
By Bikerjames of north vancouver b c (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, July 27, 2017 - 10:19pm [Dine in]

Sadly tonight my wife and myself and stopped at this Denny's. We had a very pleasant waitress, who did more than most would. Sadly we had to deal with a very obtuse manager name Ida. As we were from out of town, we were asking our waitress what would be good to see on the Northshore. Being very helpful as to what would fill our days, seems the manager to an offence to the time she was spending with us.

As we noticed the conversation between the two of them, sadly seems that isn't acceptable with this manager. I guess she missed the course on "customer service". We wouldn't return as seems her style is to have you eat and go.

Save your time and money.

This is a great little sushi place tucked away in Murrayville. Super friendly staff, absolutely fresh food. Wonderful wild salmon sashimi. Nothing farmed here, It's very, very good, I haven't tried anything I didn't care for. The gomae is delicious. Their dinner boxes are good with generous portions. Very tasty Yakisoba. The tempura is always perfect and light. You are always served a piece of fruit at the end of your meal. What more could you ask for?

Excellent Food
By Nik of Langley B C (2 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 4:00pm [Dine in]

This is a very busy but efficient restaurant. The food is very good, always fresh, the service is quick, but if you're looking for a place where you can linger over a long meal, this isn't the place for you. The tables are almost always in high demand and you might feel a bit rushed out the door once you've finished your meal, however the food is worth it. So if you're looking for a fairly quick, quality Vietnamese meal, stop in. You won't be disappointed, Personal favorites are the Hot & Sour Prawn Soup, Lemongrass Barbecued Chicken, Beef Stew with Bread (Bo Kho), and the Spring Rolls. All very delicious. You can't go wrong.

Be prepare for bad service
By emilyubc of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, July 25, 2017 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

This restaurant opens 24 hours , so it's really convenient for people living in Richmond, especially at midnight. The food is OK, and usually the service is just so so.

But last week I met a very rude waitress. When I ordered the food, I found there are two dishes with similar names, one is BBQ duck Congee, and the other one has congee and BBQ duck. I was not clear about the difference in ingredients, so I asked her what's the difference between these two dishes. She suddenly became so mad, and yelled to me: do you want to order or not? Then she threw the menu on the table and left. At that time, I was totally shocked, and young couple next to my table were also shocked. After a while, the lady from next table tried to comfort me: don't be angry, this place has the reputation of bad service.... Obviously those words did not comfort me very well.

Because I am Chinese and she fully understood what I was talking about, I don't think there's any misunderstanding between us, which made her manner was even more unacceptable.

I haven't been to this restaurant yet , I have passed by many times and have wanted to try this restaurant.
I have the take out menu and some of the things I picked out are a favorite.
I haven't tried any of these dishes , I will soon find out if the food is really that good.

Some of the reviews I read about this place aren't bad
to each their own.
I do know this restaurant has been in the Marpole area for a long long time .

There are some of the small chinese restaurants that are quite good .
So many chinese restaurants that I have not tried yet and will try .

Great sushi, great value for your buck. You can get a Bento Box for around $12 and you leave completely full and with food leftover. It's not just cheap, it's super tasty and they are really good with food presentation.The service is okay, it depends on the night/day and there can sometimes be a language barrier with some of the staff. Other than that, if you're looking for tasty sushi, at a reasonable price and very well presented, this is the place to go to!

Stepho's is one of our go-to for Vancouver restaurants. Whenever we make the trek from Chilliwack to downtown for the weekend, we stop and eat there for at least one dinner. It's delicious Greek food and the plates are HUGE. The restaurant is super cute and it can get pretty busy. Make sure to show up early as they do not take reservations.

I have no complaints with the service , ambiance or value, but Greek food should have more flavour. I think I'll send them a bag of rosemary and suggest they use it for the potatoes at least. Everything was well cooked and nicely presented, but just bland. I'm used to the roasted potatoes at Greek restaurants being one of the highlights. These were just roasted potatoes. The tzatziki was pretty bland also.
