Prata-man has been around for a while and we have drove past it many times in Richmond. But we finally had the chance to try it. We didn't have high expectations because it seemed to be quite a small local restaurant serving the nearby neighbourhood. But the place can get quick busy during lunch time. We ordered the Hainanese chicken, satay and the laksa. The chicken is served cold boneless, and with ginger/green onion sauce and chili sauce. Delicious and the oil rice complemented it very well. The satay was a great appetizer with the special peanut sauce. I had to ask for more of the sauce to go with my chicken! The laksa was very flavourful, although I did find the presentation to not be the greatest but the taste was great. There was big pieces of chicken, along with some tofu, shrimp and egg in the laksa. Overall, the meal was very filling and quite the deal. We had some leftovers chicken that we brought for lunch the next day and it was still delicious. Definitely recommend this place when you are strolling by Richmond for a quick bite.
I usually grab an Americano at Bean Around the World in the morning on my way to work. Their espresso is pretty good and their cappuccinos are fairly authentic with foam (and not identical to a latte).
If I'm hungry, I will grab a ham and egg sandwich which is served on an English muffin and toasted in the panini maker. I usually avoid the bacon version because it can be a little chewy.
The service is always fast and friendly.
Overall, good coffee and tasty breakfast sandwiches make Been Around the World a solid spot to hit in the morning.
Oven roasted wings, excellent, the beer specials were great. And the bartender was great. the 6 of us had a great time. The waitress Sam, was so much fun. We were there for Monday Night Football and is was great. They need new Monitors and they are coming soon. See you next Monday!!!
I recently just went to pizza factory for the first time and i just absolutely loved their muttar paneer and curry chicken. It was very well cooked and my kids loved it! I didn't know much about indian food so the lady working in the front was so nice and good at explaining what everything was. The curry chicken was a little spicy but overall the food was very delicious.
Came here on Sunday night with a fried of mine. Upon entering I was greeted right away, and was asked politely to take a seat (I could tell, that they were happy to see me) the restaurant was busy being Rememberance Day long weekend.
We looked at the menu and were amazed with the prices. I was trying to decide between the lasagne and the Fettucini Alfredo, but my friend suggested, that being a restaurant owned by Greeks, that lasagne would be a better idea, as Greeks don't really make a good fettucini Alfredo. I have ordered that dish at several restaurants that are run by Greeks and all but once was disappointed every time, SO I opted to get lasagne instead with extra cheese, and chicken strips for an appetizer. My friend ordered potato skins and cesear salad and for drinks, We both had a Coke.
My order of Chicken Strips first arrived, they were a little pricy but delicious, but I have seen that appetizers at restaurants have become pricy lately, but was glad that the chicken strips were delicious.
Then came my lasagne and my friend potato skins and salad. I couldn't believe how good that lasagne was.....I am still in awe how delicious it was, it was THE BEST that I had EVER had. The portion was rightly priced too.....I was really happy how delicious it was, and I still can not believe it. My friend also reported that the potato skins and cesear salad was good too.
Service could had been a little better. Didn't see our waitress too much, but being the long weekend and having a table with a bunch of people I guess I could understand, especially if that was her section. It was almost a full house in there.
I definetly have to come back, it was so great.....Thanks for great food and a great time
I was looking for a Chinese restaurant in downtown Langley as usual I checked dine here, this restaurant popped up as a Chinese restaurant. This is no Chinese restaurant and should be removed form this list.... it is a little embarrassing to go into a restaurant ask for a menu then while reading the menu you realize there is no Chinese food in the menu just curry stuff, that gives me heart burn so I got up and left. embarrassing to say the least.
Although the new owners of the old Austin Heights diner got off to a shaky start, things are much improved and they are working hard to provide great food at a reasonable price. We have dined here a few times since they opened and I must say the food has gotten better each time. New waitresses have been hired and service is much quicker. The portions have increased to substantial and arrive at the table piping hot, we ordered the Combo for 4 and it was very good, really enjoyed the Ginger Beef. The restaurant is clean and fresh, compared to when it was the "Diner". We are looking forward to trying some new dishes that are on the menu, I recommend giving this place a chance, as it keeps getting better.
the food here is incredible we have eate in the restaurant and had it delivered.both time it was incredible
we have tried 8-10 dishes on the menu and not a single one disappointed.service was great whe we ate in
we also did the buffet,the food that was served in the buffet was top of the line
the buffet had a good veriety and had diffrent food unlike the other place i have been too.good flavour,i
can't put it in to words how impressed we were with the food
Food was below mediocre! Dry, except for bhajias which were very oily! Dirty oil used to fry mogo which turned black! All food unappetising. Chutney was questionable - not tasty at all. Samosas were too spicy - we ended up being served chicken samosas - had not been asked what kind we wanted - it is understood that beef ones are ordered unless stated otherwise. Tables not cleaned from previous customers. Had to ask for cutlery and napkins.
First time here. Always trying new places., nothing wrong so far.
Why do people who own the restaurant, wanting hoping that customers will come in and ask for something to eat, have a bad habit of being rude? Just asking? I would think that the number one job of an owner would be to make sure that a new customer feel welcome and would like to come back. But not this place.
Long day, bad mood, whatever. Not my problem so doesn’t pass it on to me.
And please wash your hand before you make a sandwich. Don't talk behind a person’s back until you see them far enough away. Don't let you child hear you talk about customers behind their back. And for god sake don't say "thank you and have a nice day."
The food was ok. no flavour. but also few options. I ordered a soup and sandwich and got a very small take away bowl and half a sandwich and tea. No decaf coffee. Four choices of sandwich but you, get ham! What, Did I order ham? No! Did you ask me if ham would do? No! Did you think that you don't eat ham that others might not eat ham? No! You didn't give me the option to walk away. And the small soup had little flavour and it was cold. They do change the soup every day. But will I be going back....Hummmmm NO!. Please take note of this and review your service guide lines. Or sell the store to someone who will put the effort into it.
My husband and I went to Sweet Obsession for dessert after having dinner at Les Faux Bourgeois for our anniversary. The interior has a very clean and fresh décor which was a nice change after originally planning on going to Sweet Revenge but upon walking in thought we walked into a 90 year old ladies place so we left. The selection at Sweet Obsession was great, something for every palette and the ability to look at the items in the display case is always helpful. The service was okay, not great but all the staff was VERY young, still in high school it looked like. The only problem was the place was freezing. On a cold night those large windows they have make the place less than comfortable. Everyone inside was wearing their coats and even then I wasn't super warm. I'd come back again during a warmer day but would avoid on a fall or winter evening. Too bad considering how great the desserts tasted and the great selection of beverages they had also.
Definitely not planning to go for more than a year for the horrible experience my friends and I had the last time, almost every single person at the buffet was dissapointed.
They were out of naan bread (which they usually are, but replace it every 20 mins or slow-which is pretty slow), but the last time every one in the resteraunt waited for over 40 mins, and most of the customers never got any.
I have tried the buffet over 10-12 times in the past 2 years, and half of which was pretty decent to good, and other half was dissapointing. That is most honest opinion you can have on the whole experience at this resteraunt.
I was surprised to read the unpleasant reviews above, i have been there several times for lunch and dinner, and have never been dissapointed. the prices are way better than any other dosa place in the lowe main land, and the taste is very authentic.
I have been there atleast 20 times in the past 3 years.
Came back in January. Their all you can eat menu was 12$ per person and the quantities where big.
Now in September we came and the all you can eat Menu is 20$ and the quantities are small. we ordered a fair amount of food. and the server wondered if we were able to finish the food and bugged us 3 times about leaving food in the plate and the policy of being charged. they forced us to finish the rice
worst service ever.
The Sushimi was small. the food was not cooked properly
sorry hate not to leave a bad review - wished it was great - the place is great looking - but not what i excpected
The Place is great, I came their because a friend recommend the place. Thier was 4 of us and the bill came to 20$ per person including tip. its not an all you can eat but i recommend the viking roll - their goyza are the best i have ever had.
The Service is great. you come in its a small place we were the only ones thier at 3:30. we ordered miso soup - goyoza - 2 gomaie salad - tofu and lots of sushi around 50 pcs. and sushimi and their special viking roll - bill came to 71$ not bad
and we got to try the pumpkin deep fired thing on the house
will come again
Better half was out of town and I always wanted to try Afghan food, so I venture to this restaurant bymyself. I had to look for the host to be seated as there was none to greet me when I entered. I ordered the lamb and beef kababs. Both dishes came with salad and naan. Both meats (beef and lamb) were prepared exactly the same way, spicy and hot. The meat was decent but the salad was nothing special. The salad reminds me of the bag salad you get at a grocery store. The naan was nothing special. The price for the lamb kabab was $15.95 while the beef kabab was $14,95. Fortunately I had the entertainment coupon as if I had to pay full price I would be unsatisfied as the whole experience for Afghan food was just plain ok. The service was slow, the waitress did not come by to refill my water while I was there. From this barely satisfactory experience, I would not rush back anytime soon.
Both sweet and savoury choices and all excellent!
I am a vegetarian so I have not tried any of the meat options but friends love the egg and the ham and cheese options.
I recommend the apple and cheddar if you are in the mood for something both sweet and savoury - it's more of a meal.
If you want a snack I would recommend one of the pie-inspired. And talk about service! I asked if I could try a pie inspired with orange and chocolate and they made it! Orange with orange rind and chocolate chips inside a crispy, liege waffle - very tasty!
Ordered from Silver Dragon. They advised us the wait for delivery was 45 min. After an hour I called them. The lady that answered the phone said the kitchen was backed up and it would be another 15 min. before the order would leave. I asked them why this wasnt communicated with me at time of order or i wasnt called to say my delivery order would take double the time to arrive than promised. You wouldnt let a customer walk into restaurant and have them wait 1.5 hrs for medicore chinese food. i asked for a discount or an extra nd they told me they couldnt do anything for me. What poor customer service. The food was ok.
This place is easy to walk past since it does not have a large street frontage. It is a very unassuming little restaurant/shop. You can have a meal or buy fresh organic meats etc. My wife and I both had the chicken donair sandwiches. They also take the chicken a step further by stir frying it with onions on a grill. The bread was a paper thin tortilla style they make themselves and not the typical pita bread. The sandwich was HUGE with lots of chicken. The chicken is organic which is always a plus. The spicing and topping were very tasty. The sandwich was $6.00 including tax. WE both agreed this was one of the best donairs in the city. They had many interesting items on the menu that we will definitely try. We will be back many times and will bring family and friends. I HIGHLY recommend this place. If you are on the drive and looking for a casual, inexpensive, healthy tasty meal go here.
I have ordered take out from this establishment before but i wanted to try their Burning Stone Tataki. This you can only sample if you are eating in. Basically is it a large black stone that is heated and you have your choice of food you can put on it to cook. You have to cook it yourself. I ordered the assorted tataki which is raw ingredients. Tuna, Salmon, Scallop, thinly sliced beef, mushroom and some veggies. Served with miso soup, Sunomuno salad and a choice of dessert. My partner ordered a bento box with beef teriyaki which is always a good deal. A good assortment of goodies, Beef teriyaki, Gyoza, tempura, chicken karage and a dynamite roll with their signature pink rice. A typical bento box with the exception of pink rice.
All the items were very good. The pink rice is something unique to this restaurant. Some may consider this to look unappetizing judging from other reviews i have read, but it really does not make any difference in taste. The pink rice has a fruit and vegetable extract added to it to enhance the nutritional value of rice. It is 100% natural, no artificial ingredients or supplements. That sounds pretty good to me.
Back to the Tataki, it was my first experience with this burning stone and there was a lack of instruction from the staff here. How was i supposed to eat this, was there a sauce to go with it? They just served the plate of raw ingredients and then brought a hot stone out later. I placed a piece of beef on the hot stone and cooked it and ate it, it was really gross, no seasoning. Then we asked if there was a sauce. Oh yeah, there was a sauce and seasoning, they just forgot to bring it to us. Not very good for a first experience. After i figured out how to cook it, it was a satisfying experience. It was also delicious. You have a choice of spicy or teriyaki sauce. I went for the spicy sauce. I would recommend dipping the raw ingredients in soy sauce and then cooking on the hot stone. I would definitely order this again. A Great thing to do with friends or a hot date. A nice Sapporo beer to wash it all down adds to the enjoyment.
The ambiance was decent, the tables and larger comfy chairs gives the place a lounge-vibe. Just sitdown and relax. What was off-putting was the smells in the building. It smells like an old building, and some of the smells were a bit unappetizing for a restaurant setting. That would be my only negative complaint on ambiance.
Overall it was a good experience, i shall return with some friends next time.
