You guys, Megabite is so awesome. Their pizzas are the thickest, meatiest, most delicious and the prices don't make me sweat. They always have some good deals happening, and I've taken good advantage of their Hockey Meal Deal. It's only $30 for 2 XL pizzas and two 2L drinks! The biggest problem is often just choosing which 2 pizzas I want to order (though I've almost tried them all now!) And of course they deliver, which any good hockey fan glued to the couch come playoff time will appreciate.
So I can order a Mega Philly Steak and a Carnivore, sit back, and have it delivered to my door fresh and in a timely manner, which is exactly what happened on Sunday and I predict will happen again today. Megabite has never let me down. I can't really say the same for the Canucks lately... but at least the pizza will be good. It's fortunate I'm a secret Bruins fan on the side (shh).
So the cashier had difficulty with my order...one fires, one poutine to go. As the line built up as he tried to get the order correct, he asked me if it was ok if he took the others first. I said 'fine', and went to wait for my order and my change. About 10 minutes later, I get a nickel back instead of the $10.05 I should have. The cashier said, no I gave him a $10, I know I gave him a $20. I figure writing this up and posting it is worth ten dollars to me, so here it is. Obviously, I won't be back.
NOTE: (This review pertains to the new satellite location at 1962 Kingsway that opened recently and not the original restaurant. Yelp does not currently have an entry for the new location).
Don't go there. Worst service ever. Did not even have a chance to taste the food because the waitress was extremely rude and unprofessional. 1) Was waiting for a table, which was somehow given to another party, so we had to wait another five minutes for another. No apology or explanation given. 2) When ordering food, the waitress was unhelpful and very impolite. At one point she walked off abruptly while my sister was talking to her (in mid sentence!). Came back and took our order. When I asked for the combo meal with a drink, she did not let me know what types of drinks were available. 3) Asked to speak with the manager/owner. No one came. Spoke with an older gentleman who told us it was because it was so busy that day (it was a Sunday). Did not apologize or offer to speak to the waitress. 4) So we cancelled the order and left, but on our way out I told the waitress that she was very rude. She blurted out "Sorry!" without meaning it at all. So I told her that she should apologize to my sister. She replied "I say sorry to everyone" (her EXACT words) and walked off again. 5) Told the people working there that we were never coming back and that I will tell everyone that I know not to go there, to which they replied, "Ok, go and do that".
I happen to live about 7 blocks from this satellite location at Kingsway and Victoria, so this is considered a neighbourhood restaurant to me. If they want to continue doing business there, I suggest that they hire better staff and revamp their attitude towards their customers.
A friend and I went in for a couple of drinks and a snack. The server took our drink orders, then we waited. A while later she came by and said "those drinks will be right up". Shortly after that, the bartender brought the drinks - two bottles, no coaster, no glass, no ice. We finished the drinks, but the server had disappeared, so I went to the bar to order. The bartender was deep in a personal conversation with a different server. I waited. No recognition. I went back to the table, then the bartender scuttles over - "what can I get you?" I said just the bill. He went back to the bar. No bill. Finally I went to the bar, waited, got the bill, paid and left. I never saw our original server again, and I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time or patience to accommodate the personal lives of bar employees when I go out for a drink and a bite. I never got the opportunity to order a bite.
We waited over an hour for our food to be delivered, the order that was finally delivered was wrong, he left without giving us the complete order, when confronted we were told it was our fault and that the rest of the order would not be delivered to us even though we were charged for it already. WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER especially coming from the owner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We brought some friends here after a wonderful long hot day in the sun. We had found this pub on a dark cold fall nite.and wanted to share it now with them. Prices were a little high compared to similar venues. We came back to try out the long narrow deck ( Great views) .
We walked in, found a table on the deck , Perfect. The server took our order and left
After forever she returned with our now well aged pints and took our food orders. Eventually the pints were emptied and we waited to reorder , and waited and waited. My wife went on recognizance mission and found her sitting by the bar. We reordered and waited and waited and waited. We asked a busgirl if she could check on our missing waitress . the bus girls delivered our food ( great service ) Our drinks finally also showed up , no "I am sorry for the wait".
I could understand if they were full and busy but they were not. The food was ok, not bad not great..
Our biggest disappointment was the service from our server. if a pub is going to charge a premium prices for their food ( again compared to similar venues ) it should have the service to go along with it
For the first time since I can remember NO tip was given, if the server ain't got the time She ain't getting a dime.
I live in this neighbourhood so I had several experiences visiting the KFC at Lansdowne food court. Never was impressed by the flat soft drinks and over greased dry chicken wings down there. There isn't many options in Lansdowne food court so I still go to the KFC once a while.
This time I visited them and I felt the rip off problem goten worse! I got a Zinger with 2 Chickens and salad on top of the burger and fries combo for takeout. After I got home this time, I was shocked at the size of the chicken wings, they are 1/4 the size of the regular KFC chickens, it seemed like a substitute of non authentic KFC chickens. The salad this time is just a bit over 1/2 full! Usually salads are topped full I have never seen something like this! They were even too cheap to put napkins and a fork in my to go order!
The forever flat soft drinks! Just can't stand the poor business practices and ripping people off! If any one going to Lansdowne KFC, watch out for ripe offs! I experienced this multiple times at this location knowing its this stores habit. There were times they charged me wrong with wrong combos and gave me something different and cheaper value in my takeout orders!
Well I'm excited to be the first person to give a review! This place is amazing! They have a two medium special for $19.99! and they delivery FOR FREE!! The pizza itself is very tasty. The sauce has a nice bite to it. It's family owned by a super nice guy, who makes the pizza, and sometimes does the delivery too! Very good customer service. I have been ordering from them since I moved to Langley almost 2 years ago! I would definitely recommend :)
I ordered food for two (sweet and sour pork, rice, ginger beef, and beef chop suey) and it was almost $40 for take out. I guess I was just hoping for more leftovers. The portion sizes were pretty small for the price you pay. The food was okay, nothing special. Delivery took a long time. Nothing special.
Had a great experience here! Wish the place was bigger, because it's SO busy! There were a lot of people getting take out (we were seated, right across from the take out area) which makes me think it's good! We got seated promptly as we arrived pretty early in the evening. The soup was AMAZING!
I enjoyed the whole experience.
Horrible experience. Took almost 20 minutes for take out. The people (who happened to be East Indian, like the people serving them) who came in after us got their take out food before us, and we ordered the same thing they did! Totally unimpressed. Very over priced chicken. Not going back.
After a bad experience at a different Chinese restaurant months ago, I was a little uneasy about going out for Chinese again...but we did. I was so impressed with this place! Almost afraid to let you all know about it. I think it "our place" for Chinese moving forward.
If you care about fancy decor then you should know this is an older restaurant. It is very basic inside...and that was ok for us.
If you care about the food, value, and service, then I can say this rivals some of the best Chinese food places in Vancouver. (A rating of 4 stars on here means "outstanding" and it was!) The server was very friendly and helpful. She helped us order the "right" amount of food. The food arrived hot, tasty and not over-cooked. You could just tell it was "fresh" because it didn't have that dingy taste you get at the more questionable places. Each plate had a clear flavour that you expected. Maybe it cost a tiny bit more for some selections on the menu but not enough to make a difference. We were willing to pay that extra dollar or two gladly when everyone enjoyed the variety, freshness, and flavours! At this place, volume did not compromise quality. We were very full and satisfied when we left.
I noticed there were a lot of people picking up food for "take-out dinner" on our way in but it did not affect our experience. We did not have to wait very long at all for our food despite the take-out orders.
It is a casual, family-friendly restaurant and we can't wait to go back and try more things on the menu! The dining room is not huge so I would suggest reservations just to be safe.
best burgers ive had anywhere hands down. better than 5 guys and veras.
free toppings and not crazy expensive i always get the double bacon cheese burger and its massive i dont even need fries and its only $10 for just the burger.
service isent great neither is ambience but its a burger joint in surrey what do you expect?.
they also offer a "man Vs. food" style challenge and a frequent card if you get 8 stamps you get a free burger.
some of the best pub food ive ever had and consistent which is very hard to find these days. wicked ambience with the wood everywhere and fireplace. slow ditzy waitresses that need attitude adjustments haven't been there in a long time due to just that. maybe ill go back soon and see if anythings changed. aside from the service i really like this place.
this pub is very close to my house and thats probably the only reason im a semi regular there not nearly as regular as the rest its almost "cliquey" with the amount of super regulars they get there that all socialize with the staff and some of the staff seem almost rude and stand offish and sometimes ignore you if their chatting to regulars at the bar if your not one of their buddy buddy regulars. some of the menu items leave a lot to be desired and are a bit of a rip off but i wouldnt expect "A" grade pub food from a place that looks like this and doesent take enough pride in their establishment to do a few renos and update some things.
also they have consistently terrible wings and thats one thing i think any pub should be able to do right when i got there i just play pool and have a few pitchers of beer and play keno mid afternoon when its not too busy.
as for the pros: id have to say yes the bathroom is always clean and its a decent place to relax with friends and play some pool when its not busy. to sum it up probably the only reason i keep going back is because its the only pub in walking distance of my house.
The girlfriend and I decided to check out Jethro's after seeing some decent reviews and hearing it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.
It was a sunny Saturday afternoon, so there as a line-up and wait time up roughly 30 minutes. No problem, as we weren't in a hurry to go anywhere and figured it'd be worth the wait. The wait is understandable; this place is small, with about only 8 tables and was quite busy.
After we got seated, we found the music to be too loud and abrasive. Decor is minimal with mostly white and gray paint, which is fine with me as I'm not too worried about ambiance as long as the food is good. The place is pretty clean.
Waitress was nice and came over quickly to take our orders promptly. We ordered chicken fried steak with 2 eggs and pulled pork sandwich with salad.
The kitchen service was very slow - it took another 30 minutes for our orders to come out. How how long does it take to deep fry a steak and put some puled pork on a bun?! The chicken fried steak looked good - it's a large piece. However, it had no flavour and was bland. The eggs were fine (over-easy) with great, deep orange-coloured yolks, but really, how hard is it to make eggs?! The hashbrowns were quite good through. The white gravy was peppery, but again, short on flavour.
Girlfriend's pulled pork was lacking flavour as well. She though most of the flavour came for the off-the-shelf bottled BBQ sauce. Her salad was nothing more than greens from box of store-bough pre-mix salad. I tried a few bites and found it to be average. Memphis Blues has a better and much tastier pulled pork sandwich.
I didn't finish my meal, which is rare. I'll usually eat everything on my plate but we really just wanted to get out of there by this point.
Overall, the prices are reasonable, but the food quality - specifically flavour, was lacking for what we ordered.
Service was ok, the waitress was pleasant with the only flaw was that she did not come back to check on us after our orders arrived.
I can see why some people like this place, it's kinda funky, decent sized portions at relatively reasonable prices. However, the acid test for me is: Would I come back to eat here again? The answer for us is NO. So I can't recommend this place.
I actually made an account just for this place. The food is okay but the service is TERRIBLE. It's a piece of sxxx excuse my language. Their excuse is that it's busy but it didn't look busy to me. I had the worse service ever. When I asked for help I wasn't noticed for sooooo long. When the bartender finally saw me waving she gave me a nod that someone as coming over. Gave it another 5 minutes no one came. When I finally waved down the manger, I told him the bad service we got, he didn't even care and the fastest service I got was when he gave me the bill. I don't need to say anymore. Never going back. MADE THIS ACCOUNT JUST FOR THIS.
We came here for dim sum today for the first time. Its a small restaurant, not too many tables. Waited about 15 mins for a table for two. Sat down and it took awhile for someone to take our order. They don't have dim sum carts here so you just tell the waiter what you want. It seemed to take a long time to get our first dish which was deep fried shrimp spring roll. you get 4 halves of shrimp filling and something that looked like seaweed inside the roll. it came piping hot but was just average. We also had the pork siu mi which had some diced Chinese mushroom mixed in the pork filling and something which tasted like dried salted fish mixed in which we did not care for as regular pork dumpling usually just has shrimp or shrimp/pork inside. We didn't care for the piece of shrimp on top of it either. We also had the steamed black bean/garlic pork spareribs which were really average tasting and not authentic. The mini sticky rice (3) were a pretty decent size and tasted okay.. Overall the average price was about $4.25 per dish but due to the extremely slow service and weird taste/texture of the food, we will not return....
We had lunch at Adrian's today and sat on the patio which was lovely. The food took a long time to arrive. My dad had the lamb and mom had a beef dip. They were both pleased with their meals. My son and I received less than satisfactory meals. The lettuce on my sandwich and side salad was limp and brown. My son ordered a kid's cod and Ceasar salad. His salad was yellow. I spoke with our server who said the salads seemed rotten but did not offer to exchange them or remove mine which was untouched from our bill. She did say she would mention it to the kitchen staff. I suggested she tell hem not to serve that. She said they put the lettuce in a bucket of ice so it was possible mine had been frozen then thawed. I wouldn't feed the salad I received to my guinea pig. Shame on you Adrian's! Next time, I'll pack my own lunch and watch the planes from the parking lot
This restaurant just opened and we managed to attend a special preview night of service before the official opening. We were extremely impressed by the down to earth and welcoming decor. It felt like going home, but done right.
We tried muscles & clams, and navy beans as a started. The flavours were tremendously balanced and the dishes were presented beautifully and without pretention.
For our means we ordered a Rib Eye and the Hanger Steak Bourguignon. When my husband asked for his steak medium rare, the server suggested he move up to medium and was able to explain the steak and why the doneness was important. His steak was delicious and perfectly cooked to her suggestion. The Hanger Steak Bourguignon was one of the best red meat dishes I have had in a restaurant to date. It felt comforting and sophisticated at the same time, and each bite was packed with flavour.
The cocktails (especially the Figgedaboutit - a fresh twist on a classic old fashioned) were delicious and well made, and the service was impeccable. Gastown is packed with choices, but I would highly recommend putting Tuc Craft Kitchen at the top of your list. What a wonderful experience - these guys know what they're doing!
