Oh gosh.. How should I start..!
I remember I felt so mad waiting for more than 40 mintutes for my food to be served.
As I was waiting for the food to come out, none of the staff came to even refill my water.
What kind of restaurant is this?!
Anyways, I waited for a long long time.
I ordered chicken teriyaki and special rolls because one of my friends recommended me those.
And guess what? The rolls didn't even come out!
The server apparently forgot about this and bluntly apologizing.
I had to wait for just 40+minutes for freaking chicken!!!
And the chicken sauce was just awful.
Trust me, I went to many other sushi restaurants all over the Vancouver mainland but this was one of those worst nightmares that should be avoided at all cost.
I think feeling the pressure from Cactus Club and Browns, Milestones has stepped up. Having kept most of their menu favourites, they have added a "celebrity chef" menu that far surpassed the stale Rob Feenie fare.
We were intending on going to Browns but the line up wasvery big and noticing that most of the patio partrons were drunk 20 year olds hooting and doing shots we decided to leave and go somewhere mor conducive to a nice social evening.
We were thinking of earls, but don't like the plastic fake bimbo waitresses who know nothing about service just posing for a tip. So we went to Milestones. It was busy but no line up - perfect. Out hostess was smart and could actually create a full sentence without the word "Like".
Our waitress was also, classy, professional an over 25. WOW 2 for 2. We had fantastic service. And, the food was actually amazing. The quinoa shrimp was the most inovative delicious thing I've had in a long time. Crab cakes - NO filler. All crab. Thai noodle stir fry excellent as were the 2 amazing chef menu desserts.
A plus all around. Good for you MIlestones - you finally have got it right. It was awesome - I think buster's undies were too tight.
The owner is Japanese. All the sushi are handmade. The portion is about right for the price.
My favorite menu is their avocado roll. The amount of avocado they put in is a lot and they aren't some leftover avocados you find at some Chinese/Korean place.
Sushi are fresh for a small place in the train/bus terminal.
The place itself is not easy to notice because it's at the corner of the station.
The food was good but not the best sushi I've had in the area nor the most authentic. The price was high. Japanese should not venture into sushi because the price is steep really. I would consider going back had it not been for the welcoming we received and the high price caused by the location and type of sushi. We got about two rounds of drinks during our time!
came to Vancouver and was recommended this place. Good chain. Everything is high end and the food was custom made to order. The atmosphere is high end lounge with a bar and a little noisy. Prices are high but with this quality it was justified. The athletic women staffers there are fabullloous. Definitely makes it worth it no doubt everyone agrees. It was packed. You might want t try their steak. Add wine which D recommended and we sure went for it.
A proper Chinese restaurant (the kind you would bring your in laws to) has been long overdue in Surrey. So when I heard that Neptune was finally coming, my family and I were one of the first ones there. Literally - we were there at 10am the first day they opened their doors.
As to be expected for a new restaurant, our dim sum meal had more than a few hiccups. The wrong food was brought to our table twice, half of the dishes that we did order came to us cold, we saw a server walk past us several times before the manager pointed to our table, the bill took forever to get even though there were more than enough servers for the half full restaurant. When we paid, it took another 10 min. before we got our change. The food came out verrrrrrrrrrrrrryyyyyy slowly.
To be fair, I've been there again several more times and service is getting a tad better, but still lots of confused servers and the kitchen is really slow in pushing out food. Quality has been inconsistent. The food sometimes comes hot and sometimes comes cold.
That said, at dim sum we enjoyed the durian mochi and the congee. These ones not so much: phoenix claws - lacking tanginess in sauce, ha gow (shrimp dumpling) had way too much white pepper in it and over powered the delicate shrimp, and stuffed eggplant - same pepper issue with its shrimp paste.
The prices are higher end, but food quality was lacking to me at this price point.
Ambiance is great. Gleaming chandeliers, marble and stone walls, tastefully decorated, brand new dishes.
May give them a few months to straighten out and be back to try again.
Recently came here for brunch with friends, and was pleased with both the service and with my food. Try the banana french toast with sides of crisp smokey bacon and sausage. The hashbrowns are quite possibly the best in the city! Yum! Will be back for lunch out on the patio a different day. The lunch menu looked good but my belly is only so big :(
You can say I've only tried 4-5 different pho places, but this place definitely has the best vermicelli dishes.
I usually order the pork and spring roll vermicelli but substitute the pork with the lemon grass chicken. The chicken is very juicy and the sauce they give for the vermicelli is very yummy. Much much much better than Pho Hoa. This place uses a different wrapper for the spring rolls also, which makes it have a lighter crisp as opposed to the oily ones at Pho Hoa.
However, the pho soup I found a little bland. The noodles and meat were good but the soup is too bland for me, probably because I'm from Hong Kong and we like everything with a lot of taste haha
Overall, this is the place I crave when I want Vietnamese vermicelli dishes. Definitely a 5/5 for that. As for the pho, maybe a 3/5. This place is also cheaper than other pho places too.
BUT BEWARE IN ORDERING THE "SMALL" PHO. It's really.. really... small.. even though it's 1$ less than the regular.
I didn't find the waiters/waitresses rude or anything. They were all friendly to me. And I've been here for the lunch shifts and the late night (12am) shifts.
We were traveling through Vancouver on Mother’s Day with my mom and she picked Greek Food for dinner so we used Google Maps to find the closest Greek Restaurant and it certainly did not disappoint!! The food, the service, the ambiance, the value was FANTASTIC!! Thank you!! What a great touch – the chocolates for our mom – we loved that!
Mom loved the dinner! We decided the next time we travel through Vancouver we must stop in for another meal! We’ll be back!
Thanks! Chris & Ruth
Well not quite. Let's see - I went there today because I stopped in on my lunch hour to pick up some glasses.
There was a line up even at 11:30 on a Wednesday. I'm not sure of the quality of the hot food but the masses seemed to be sucking it up. They had chicken noodle soup labelled as vegetarian vegetable soup. I pointed it out to some staff member who did nothing. They have tilapia or some other cheap fish for $9.99 - no bargain. Laughable actually.
The veggie wrap was $4 - one wrap cheese and raw veggies - they're still making big money.
The cinnamon bun and coffee is good for $2 but the cinnamon gets over powering.
The breakfast is the best deal for $2 or whatever it is. Liquid scrambled eggs, unsalted hash browns and meat. But if you want to skip one item and have more of another that's ok. They do make good coffee. Very good.
A lot of people were having chili and garlic bread - seemed very popular.
I dunno - I never look forward to eating there but if I have jingly change in my purse and I'm hungry when there I'll indulge. Definately not a destination . Maybe I'll try hitting it up for drinks on Friday night - it's licenced.
The atmosphere is great and the food is even better. I have been going here for two years now and it never disappoints. The food has gotten allot better with the new menus and the service is always great. I do not understand the bad reviews i have been going there for two years and never had one complaint. Like my bacon is bigger then the muffin like come on its bacon more is better. The food is excellent never had a mediocre meal and love the atmosphere. My baseball team comes in after every game and they give us a team rate which is awesome. I love Barneys and have not found another place that can hold a handle to this place. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for excellent food at a reasonable price.
My bf and I were walking around the hood on Sunday and everywere was packed (we live in Mount Pleasant) so we kept walking and finally found a free patio on Broadway. I don't know why this place wasn't packed because the Eggs Benny was amazing. I'm really picky about my Benny's (especially with seafood- it's got to be done well). Went for the shrimp benny and was truly impressed, avocado on it too- would come back again. Wasn't pretentious like a lot of places in Vancouver.
I felt I had to write a realistic review after reading the one below. If you don't like kids than stay home and order Chinese! That is not a reason to whine about a restaurant.
Anyway, I have been to Hapa well over 20 times and the food is always great! The atmosphere is casual and relatively authentic. While the service style is different with many different waiters taking care of all of the tables, it does allow for food to come out quickly and you just have to ask if you want a drink!
The Ebi Mayo and Tuna Guac are a couple of our favorites and the Chicken Karaage is the best chicken I have eaten! Top it off with some cold Saki and you are in for a great evening!
Not to mention the incredibly reasonable Hapa Hour at 5:30 in kits. Do it!
One word comes to mind: appalling.
My wife and I went last night because someone had given us a gift certificate. We both agreed that it was the worst meal out we've had in 10 years. Pale iceberg lettuce salads, hers with burned nuts. Supposed to be greens, right? The entrees were lame, and the sauces decidedly un-Italian. For cheese, there is a shaker of... wait for it... Kraft Parmesan. That's right, the same stuff in the tall green shakers we had when we were kids and didn't know better. The lobster bisque was a thin disaster, made with canned tomatoes and canned snow crab, from what I could tell. Not a piece of real lobster or actual broth made from the shells was detected. And to top off all this majesty, we were not serenaded, but rather assaulted by a pianist with a set list largely unchanged since the Middle Ages, performing on a piano that was so out of tune that I felt like I was in a Wild West saloon, waiting for the big gunfight. Pythagoras must have been spinning in his grave. An atrocious place. More suitable for picketing than dining. Flee now, while there is time...
My fiancee and I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions. They offer a very good deal (1/2 off second meal when you stay at one of the neighboring hotels) and the food is decent.
In the past, I have simply mentioned that I am staying at the hotel and they have no issue offering the discount. However this past weekend, we visited the restaurant and mentioned we were staying at Canada's Best Value Inn but had not checked into the hotel yet. The server said she would need to see our room key to allow the discount on the second meal. I mentioned we were about to check into the hotel after eating and showed her our confirmed reservation on my iPhone. She said she would have to check with her manager and proceeded to take our order.
A few minutes later, the owner of the restaurant came by our table and very rudely told us that they could not honor the discount without a room key. The confirmed reservation was not enough -- which is ludicrous because anyone can walk away from the hotel without returning a room key. I offered to show the owner the confirmed reservation and he said that was not good enough.
At that point, we were so shocked and disillusioned with the poor customer service we picked up our coats and left. It was very obvious we would never return to this establishment.
Well, the story does not end there. As we are walking out, the owner literally comes chasing after us. I turn expecting an apology and an offer to honor the discount. However, instead, the owner, again very rudely and angrily, asks us to pay for our drinks (we had two waters and a cup of coffee which we never tasted). I turned and told the owner that we had visited his establishment on numerous occasions and how disappointed I was with the attitude and courtesy he was offering us. Yes, I paid the $2.35 for a coffee I never drank and the incredibly poor service and attitude. Yes, I could have returned 10 minutes later with a room key and caused a fuss... but what was the point?!
I will never return to this restaurant and I fully explained the situation to the hotel where they informed us of this offer. I am taking the time to add this review to let others visiting this restaurant know how they will be viewed by the very ignorant and angry owner if they ever visit.
I have lived in Langley a long time and finally gave Andreas a try a few months ago. My husband and I ordered takeout, and thought the food was mediocre at best. The service was really good, on both the phone and when my husband went to pick up the food. No complaints there. HOWEVER. Last night we decided to give the takeout another go. Bad mistake. I ended up at 2 a.m. trying not to throw up. All I can say is that the food this time around was even worse than poor. It was downright disgusting. We have tried twice with the Greek salad, and both times have been very disappointed. Bland is the best I can describe for it. Which is a heck of a lot better than I could say about the Tortellini dish I received. Right away I noticed it was lukewarm, even though my husband was there to pick it up 20 minutes after we had given the order. After the first few bites I noticed a weird taste, which I attributed to the sauce. It tasted almost sour. I added some red pepper flakes, hoping that would make a difference. Not. I then asked my husband if I could taste his own sauce, which was on the Rigatoni. His sauce definitely tasted different than mine, even though we both had the meat sauce. I then cut into one of my tortellini and took a good whiff. WHEW!!! There was the culprit. Something was absolutely RANK in the tortellini filling. Supposedly it was meat tortellini, but the stuff in the middle just looked gray. I almost threw up right there. Instead I threw out the rest of my dinner, as well as the takeout menu we had. Never again.
i came in the other day and had this one woman as a server. I assume she was the manager because of the way she addressed the other staff. Anyways she was extremely cold and snarky to my friends and I not only us but her staff as well in front of her customers.I will not be coming back to this establishment.
Hubby and I decided to try this place again, to see if they have improved since the last time we went. The staff were courteous and polite, there were adults working, our take out order was on time and the food was fantastic. We are thrilled with the improvement, and will definitely return again. We highly recommend this place!!
We have been ordering take out for Deer Lake Wonton for years. We have tried other local take Chinese take out, but always end up back here.
It is very Canadian Chinese food, but solid food for a solid price.
They do deliver very quickly.
We will continue to order from here.
The food at Curry Sensations just keeps getting better and better! We often order take out food but last week we ate in the restaurant and tried the chicken pakora, mixed veggie platter, chicken korma and butter chicken which were excellent. Thank you for your great friendly service and awesome food! c u agian
