Now to write a review that's worth reading(?)
Woon Lee Inn. It use to be our late night Chinese restaurant for to order from for our "need good quality westernised Chinese binge food...NOW! place." Until last weekend.
Since we haven't ordered our Chinese fix for a bit, what arrived (promptly) was not what was expected. We ordered our three staples.. Chicken chow main. WoonLee Inn speacial fried rice, steamed veggies;
they were as expected. But the two new items (ginger beef) was just LEFT OVER THREAD THICK BEEF that was deep fried with ten times more batter than meat. No ginger and we needed to look very hard for the beef(where's the beef?) If you order this, just think of a beefish popcorn.
The second disappointment was the costly lemon chicken. One breast, dry with some packing material white filler. I'm not sure if this white stuff was edible. I didn't expect to pay for something that I could pack electronics in instead of chicken.
Next well try another "MUST HAVE GREASIE NOW! food."
My girlfriend and I came here a little after 1 pm on a Wednesday and had no trouble getting a seat. We found this place while passing by Broadway and trying to settle on a good place to get some lunch. When we arrived, there were already a couple of tables occupied which was an encouraging sign. We both decided to get the lunch specials: a curry of your choice accompanied by rice, naan and a salad. For $11.00, it is not bad. The fact that we got to choose from a variety of options for lunch was good. I went for the lamb curry and the GF choose the butter chicken. Good choices both. As promised we got the best bang for our buck, and it was so tasty. This is yet another great Indian restaurant with delicious food. I’ll definitely go back for lunch one day and maybe even try more of their dishes later on for dinner.
I have dined here probably about 4 times now and have never been disappointed! The food had always been amazing and so tasty.
The people who work here are very friendly and the service is great.
The food always comes out very quickly and the portions are a good size as well. Ample parking out front. The only downside is the ambiance and the decor is a little dated.
Overall this is hands down my favourite Indian restaurant and they typically have great monthly specials that include wine, shared appy, main and dessert .
My wife and i had a dinner date here. I thought over all it was a good experience. We ordered the dinner for two B.Miso soup, seafood salad, Salmon Oshi, salmon wave, special roll, teriyaki chicken or beef, and a dessert. It was pretty good value i guess. The food was absolutely delicious. Quite filling with the Asahi beer aswell. We couldn't finish the teriyaki portion. seafood salad was incredible, Salmon Oshi makes you say " Ohshi#" it was all very good, and somewhat unique. i would say a cut above the regular sushi joints. You have a choice of Green tea or mango ice cream in the end which i thought was a bit of a let-down, but refreshing non-the less. i was expecting some deep fried banana's or something more exotic.
Service was good but in my opinion lacking the added touch.
I would revisit this place for sure.
I order pizza from here quite often. They are good pizza's and have decent value. However on the last two times i noticed that when i eat the pizza i get this gritty sand pebble. You know when you have bit a piece of sand. It makes me question if they are washing veggies properly or practicing good cleanliness.
I ordered take-out. 3 souvlaki dinners, one chicken, one beef and one lamb. It was very good and tasty. I like garlic, but i thought the Tzatziki was a little over board on the raw garlic. Everything else was good however the portions were a bit small for a greek restaurant. $15 for a dinner souvlaki i kind of expect to get a good size portion like Greek restaurants are so well known for. I would go back here, but not too soon or often. Its kinda of expensive.
The restaurant looks nice inside, i may decide to eat in , in future. Save up some money first though. ;)
Went for a coffee and dessert on sunday afternoon. Coffee was good but ordered Tiramisu and it was not good at all. It was frozen and was told by the server to let it warm up on the table for about 5 mins. Waited for 15mins and was still frozen inside. Took it back and she warmed it up in the microwave so now the was not good at all. They would not refund my money. What a waste of $5. Will go for coffe but don't order the dessert.. Better to go to Milano coffee which is just around the corner.
We met up with some friends for a bite at the (new) Townhall. This place has been under several names and management but this one is the best yet. The food was good and I was surprised to see families with kids there. Not too loud, patrons, music or television-wise. I highly recommend reservations. We had a head's up to do so and I'm glad we did - the line up at 6:00 on a Friday was down the stairs and when we left at 8:00 it was even longer. We were placed in a room that had a large party in it. I think more people showed up than their reservation was for as the area filled up we found ourselves the ONLY table in that area that wasn't a part of this surprise party. As a result, we were 'elbowed' quite a bit by the party patrons. My sister in law even had somebody lean/sit on the back of her chair! We had to ask them to back off from us - which they did but eventually we found ourselves crowded again. I'm not sure that this was the fault of the restaurant or the girl who took our reservations but it was nonetheless the biggest damper on the evening. The food service was good - fairly fast and prompt considering how busy they were. The food was really good and there was a nice variety from soup/salads to steaks and pizza. The entrees/appies were a good selection too. Next time (there will definitely be a next time), I'll be sure to ask for a table that isn't next to a big party. I highly recommend this place - Maple Ridge has lost some of their 'gems' in the last 2 years and this is a nice place for all ages.
I had one of their lunch specials the other day. The food was quite good. But it was the quantity that impressed. There was easily enough for two. I didn't come close to finishing. The hot and sour soup for $1.95 was large and very good. There is only one waitress for such a busy eat in/take out place so service can be slow but she does a great job and is constantly running. The lack of ambiance is normal in this type of restaurant and takes nothing away from the food. All in all I would definitely return.
We were really excited to try authentic Korean BBQ and celebrate my daughter's 17th Bday dinner at Insadong.
We made reservations and was seated at a table which had a bbq on one side only.
We had a birthday cake and they didn't have room to keep in a refrigerator while we ate dinner, the cake sat beside us on a chair.
The waitress took our order and was not friendly or helpful with suggestions. She was very short and rude. We told her one of the kids has a shellfish allergy so to omit the mussels and prawns from our BBQ combo order
We received side dishes and when I asked for more lettuce and condiments for the lettuce wrap, she said its on the table. There were 6 of us and she gave us 2 settings of lettuce and condiments.
When our BBQ meat combo arrived, it had the mussels and prawns on the platter. We politely reminded her of the allergy and she said the kitchen forgot her order and just removed the platter.
Usually our rice arrives with the BBQ, but we finished cooking the ribs and had to waive down a waiter to get our rice, which was plopped on the table as they walked briskly by.
There were other servers who where delivering items to our table and literally just plopped it on the corner closest to the walkway without even telling us what it was. When we requested more tea or replenish side dishes, they would walk by and plop it on the table without even breaking their stride. This may be efficient, but it made the service so impersonal and the experience was a big fat "0" for me and my family.
The cost for this dinner without any alcohol was $25/person plus tip. I would get better service at a hotdog stand and not have have all my clothes cleaned and shower right away to get the BBQ smoke smell out.
I would not recommend this restaurant if you want service or a good dining experience.
The only time a server smiled at me was when I was paying the bill asking me how my dinner was... A bit too late for service. I still tipped out of courtesy but if it was up to me, tips need to be earned. The servers didn't earn a penny of the tip I left, I left it for the kitchen.
What is happening to this restaurant? They are now closed from 3:30pm to 4:30pm? What is that?
It used to be one of my favorite sushi places in surrey.
The service was always OK, but we really enjoyed the food.
We waited for over 45 minutes for our food. The restaurant was not that busy.maybe 20 tables.
We were starving by the time we got out rolls. And to see that the potions of sashimi have gotten way smaller,was disappointing.
There was no apologies from the waitress, or any offer of at least some edemame beans to tie us over,until the food came.
We actually had to tell them that we did not want our beef tataki anymore, as it would have been 1 hour and 15 minutes since we had orders it. So disappointed, will not be returning anytime soon.
As title says save your hard earn money, nasty tasteless food. Don't tell me you were not warned. Very poor qty food, soggy, no flavours, just soaking in some cheap cooking oil. Avoid this place, or donate your lunch/diner money to charity instead. I went their 1st time for pickup order & during 8pm on friday not a single diner eating, the place was empty. I should have got hint by this, but proceeded to pick up anyway. I hope City shut down this place, the food is that bad.
I went into with my girlfriend for her birthday. I had simply asked the lady running it if they do anything for birthdays as I hear you can get a free juice. She didn't even acknowledge me and looked at the costomer behind me to help them. I asked again and she gave me a rude look and Mumbled "we don't do that okay." Anyway I just left. I am never giving them my business or taking my clients there. I also told all my friends my experiance and they won't be going either. I don't even care about the drink, just respect the costomer enough to acknowledge me, this was rude and uncalled for.
About me: I made accounts of 4 different food sites because this was the rudest service of my life and I have to let people know
We held a family special occasion here for 15 people. We ordered one of the set menus, in this case
The Don Francesco menu at 95/head (Family style platters).
The good- The service was competent and attentive, very top notch. The mains were fantastic! the platters were
Halibut,rack of lamb and osso bucco (each individual plate had the sides already on when served). The Osso Buco was the best I've ever had! Dark rich and generous! The lamb was equally well executed and the halibut was fine, portions were more than fine. Of the three pastas (Duck sausage,Farfalle with seafood and penne smoked salmon) I would have to give the nod the the smoked salmon pasta. A clear yet creamy sauce complimenting the wonderful smoked salmon. The other pastas were very very good.
Wine list was fairly extensive and fairly average price wise, they had excellent beers on tap (Stella, Peroni etc) so there were options.
The bad- The appy platters were way below the price point and quality of the rest of the meal. It consisted of Cesar salad, Deli stiffed olives and I swear salami and mortadella from what I think was the mixed "Citero" pack from costco! The seafood vol au vonts were decent but not memorable. They did some prosciutto in the platter also but I'm sure it wasn't Parma (the real thing) or enough for that matter. House bread was plentiful and delicious.
The ambiance is nicely done and the place is spacious and quite (until we got there!) they platted a cake for us at no charge and added a raspberry coulis to the cake..classy.
All in all a nice experience, would go back just for the Osso Bucco!
Unpretentious...honest cooking with great value.
We came here Saturday night with friends, this place takes reservations which is great because it is busy!
When we walked in our table wasn't quite ready so we watched the open kitchen...are they making their own tortellini!? YES!! and apparently all the pasta and sauces are scratch made...wow!
Our table had pizzas an appy and a gnocchi. The pizzas were as good as any of the trendoid pizzerias but at a much more reasonable cost and frankly better than some highly regarded placed (Ahem Campanioglo!)
The gnocchi were awesome and a huge serving, in fact out of 3 pizzas we ended up bagging a whole one (mixed pieces) for home, ditto for the gnocchi. Peroni beer on tap ice cold and reasonably priced, a great and not expensive (relatively speaking) wine list round out the food/drinks. The staff and service are amazing, when we got there it was hopping but the service was focused and efficient, a nice change form the norm. The ambiance is neighborhood chic and comfy.
Love this place....definitely will be back!
Went to the bar to grab some food before our show started. It was very quiet when we first arrived and took over 10 minutes for our server to take our order for drinks and food. Within that time 80% of the lounge was filling up with guests. This definitely became a problem with the staff as they were clearly unable to manage the crowd and gather everyones orders. The menu was basic to begin with so we ordered simple nachos and mini burgers. Nachos had no care put in to them. we watched our order sit on the counter for 10 minutes before our server found the time to bring us our food. The food was cold and tasted stale with no flavouring. We don't expect to receive 5 star dining at a casino but we do expect some decent food and service. The food also left us feeling uneasy.
I asked my server about ordering 3 eggs, bacon and toast and was recommended by her to order one of the combos. The one she indicated had only two eggs and included hash-browns. I asked her if I could get three eggs and leave out the hash, after leaving the table briefly to ask about this I presume, she came back and accepted my order.
My food later came (with hash) which I didn't eat. I questioned my server about why there was still potato as I asked for it not be part of my order, her remark was "I just decided to give you them anyway." Well, that has to be the most arrogant thing I have ever heard from a server.
The real problem is her trying to scam me at the end by trying to charge me for a extra egg as well as the hash (was supposed to have been a substitution) which I never ordered and particularly did not want, and that she openly admitted to just "giving" me anyway. Scary. After insisting this should not be on the bill, the server relented and removed the extra charge.
The food (the portion that I did order) was reasonable in taste and quality, but I certainly cannot recommend this place given today's experience.
Three of hit the Narrows for dinner on a Thursday night. I hadn't been there since it was the old Maplewood. We got there at 5pm so it was still happy hour with $3 sleeves of lager or pale ale. We had planned to sit downstairs near the fireplace but the Canucks were playing back east and all the big screens were blasting the game so we retreated upstairs to a slightly quieter table in the "nightclub" part of the pub where we could talk.
We ordered a spicy chorizo pizza which was nicely done, a calamari which was fine but would be better if they used a crispy batter instead of breading, and a pulled pork sandwich which was a bit bland but the fries that came with it were very good. The single server did her best to make sure we were well served but she was obviously a bit overworked by the time we finished up. Overall with tip the tab was $70 including 5 sleeves of pale ale. Next time we go there, we'll check the sports schedule first, hit happy hour for the beer deal, and share a few pizzas.
Wow is all I have to say! This place is fabulous. The portions are huge, but it is quality food. The owners are very friendly and the service is excellent. I love the cheese appy, I think it's called saginaki... Whatever it's called, it melts in your mouth! The tzatziki is excellent, the lamb is perfect and the garlic mashed is phenomenal. Try this place, you won't be disappointed!
Located near Pacific National Exhibition, this Burger King tends to offer limited promotional deals not found in other Burger King restaurants. After 3:00pm, whopper junior combo meal is discounted to $3.00 while poutine costs $2.50. Outstanding bargains because regular prices are roughly close to $5.00 plus or minus range. Also most Burger Kings offer a variety of King deal items priced under $2.00 similar to McDonalds value items. Service is normally fast except during PNE weeks in August. As for ambiance, this modern restaurant has more seating capacity than most Burger Kings in Vancouver. Recommended for people who like average quality foods at low prices.
