worst experience ever

Submitted Wednesday, December 30, 2015 - 8:43pm [Take-out]

I called on the way home from work to find out how late they will be open.. the lady said 8:30. I said I would be coming by. I got a call at 8 saying they are closing. I asked if I could at least place an order and pick it up as I will be there in 5 minutes. She said ok. I ordered 2 butter chicken MEALS. I get there and ask if I could include naan bread. The guy says no they are closed (even though he is still serving customer coming through the door) so I wait 10 minutes for my food to be ready. I just got home and I have 2 containers of butter chicken with little chicken in the containers (lots of sauce) AND NO RICE! so I am now making rice and cannot eat for another 30 minutes. Why would they not include rice? Makes no sense at all. I just wasted 21 dollars.

Overcharged and Incomplete

Submitted Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - 8:12pm [Delivery]

The customer service leaves a lot to be desired. After receiving a partial order, I phoned, and was strongly informed that the entire order was delivered. I asked to speak to the woman's supervisor, and was informed that she did not have a supervisor. I used to order from this place around 3-5 times a month, but I will not be ordering from them again. The food is overpriced, but there isn't a lot of competition in Maple Ridge.

Chilly, yet still amazing

We were a group of 7 celebrating my sister's graduation (medical school, no biggie) and decided to come here to eat and enjoy the view. I had been here once and loved it but this time around it was a little chilly. Should have paid another visit during the summer.

The waiter was amicable from the get go, and got us started with some crab and shrimp cakes. Amaziiiiing! Came with a great sauce made out of mango(?) I believe. The beef tenderloin was cooked to perfection, and I took a little bit of my mom's halibut to try and it was excellent. The prices are normally what I wouldn't pay for on an average meal, but since we were celebrating it was a good excuse to splurge.

I used to come here a lot for a quick lunch. Their pasta was delicious, came in huge portions and very cheap (but not cheap as in low quality). And don't even get me started on their tiramisu. Was in the West End doing some errands and decided to stop by for old times sake. Shouldn't have. It seems to have gone downhill. The pasta tasted canned and nothing fresh, which wasn't the case before. I'm not so sure I'll be back.

Good place if you're okay with line-ups

Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 7:42pm [Dine in]

In general, I like this place. Staff are always friendly and food is delicious. I love the coffee there! That being said, the prices on the menu have increased a few times since Angelina sold the restaurant to the new owner.

I would still go if it wasn't for the line-ups on the weekends. They don't take reservations... I hate waiting in line-ups for any longer than 10 minutes, so as a result I usually end up going to the De Dutch Pannekoek House instead. With the prices going up at Angelina's, it's pretty close to the prices at De Dutch, but without the line-ups.

I reviewed this restuarant back in January, 2015, and I had nothing but good things to say about this place. Unfortunately, since then the quality of the food went downhill. I'm not sure if they changed cooks in the restaurant or what, but I've stopped ording chinese food from this place as a result.

I have not discovered any other chinese restaurants in New West that are worth going back to. If I want decent chinese food, I have to make a trip into Vancouver.

Okay for a beer or two and watching a game, but that's about it.
By coconut of New Westminster, BC (15 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 6:01pm [Dine in]

Being that I live walking distance to this restuarant, I've tried it out many times since it opened.

Pros
----
1. Decent ambience and fair number of TVs at the bar. Great for when I just want a few beers and watch the Canucks on TV.

2. Waitresses are attentive and friendly.

Cons
----
1. Menu is overpriced. Both food and drinks are alot compared to other pubs in the area and it doesn't take much to rack up a big bill.

2. The menu is limited. The only thing that kept me going back for dinners was the roast beef dinner, but I recently discovered that they took that off the menu. Huge mistake! They should be capitalizing more on menu items like that.

3. With the high ceilings, it can be extremely noisy when there are alot of people in the restaurant. If you're the type that likes to have a conversation with your guest without having to shout, then this is definately not the place to go.

Since they removed the roast beef dinner from the menu, I haven't returned. There's another pub calls Hops in the same complex that serves way better food, not as noisy, has alot of TV's for watching sports, and the prices are reasonable.

Went for brunch with my 4yr old son for his birthday as read the place was kid friendly. That may be so, but food quality + taste was lacking (even for veg), the place was dirty, and the servers seem like pot heads waiting impatiently for their next smoke break and not really interested in much else. Basically a cafeteria rather than a restaurant. Would not recommend nor go back.

Good Sushi, Yet Service fail

Submitted Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 2:04pm [Dine in]

We had heard a lot about this place and since we had not yet tried sushi in Vancouver, we decided to try this place before leaving. It was a last minute kind of event last week which fit perfectly into the ambience of this place, since it was all you can eat. Oddly enough, this sushi place is run by Chinese people, but as long as you can make it properly I couldn't care less. We were mildly surprised by the value, esp. being ayce. A decent variety to choose from, I would like to say the nigiri sushi was quite good, but the service was a little lacking. Food takes too long to come and servers just kind of stand in their spot and don't come to your table. Their prices are not cheap so I would expect a little more.

Slice of Chicago5812 Fraser Street, Vancouver
Not Worth the Wait
By leonard h of Vancouver (39 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, December 24, 2015 - 4:25am [Dine in]

I'm from the Chicago area, and what you get here is not real Chicago-style pizza. What you're getting is Pizza Hut pan pizza, which is not the same thing, from the ordinary dough, to the lack of cheese - and lack of quality cheese - to the Costco pizza sauce. For this establishment to keep posting phony reviews on here praising the pizza - which is not bad, but ordinary - is sleazy business practice, and while I get it that we have to do what we can to get ahead in the business world sometimes, false or deceptive advertising more often than not negatively affects one's business, ultimately, not to mention that it's illegal. Google and Google Image Lou Malnati's - the Chicago pizza place I grew up with - to see what the real thing looks like. And if you ever go to Chicago, head to Lou's, or Pequod,s, or Giordano's, etcetera, to have a taste of the real McCoy. I hope the people who run Slice of Chicago go to Chicago as well, then come back and be the first establishment in Vancouver to serve up this ambrosia. For now, they are serving up run-of-the-mill.

prime rib not as juicy as before
By debbyinbby of Burnaby Canada (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 23, 2015 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

We arrived at 5:30 pm and ordered the $28. (10 oz) prime rib last Saturday evening. I had reserved a table in advance. The server took our order and said it would take approx. 25 mins, the food took about 40 mins to arrive but that was ok as we had a loaf of warm sourdough bread while waiting and it seemed pretty busy even though it was early in the evening. I asked for it to be cooked medium. The prime rib was nicely presented, I had the baked potato which was topped with bacon bits, etc. and it was very tasty. There was quite a lot of crispy onions as well piled on the plate. As for the prime rib, it looked pretty good but when I took a bite it was not as juicy as when I had it 3 years ago at this restaurant. It was tender but there was no meat juices visible in the meat, it had good marbling and the au jus was good but just wasn't the same as before. Perhaps the sliced prime rib had been sitting on our plates longer than usual as it sure didn't look or taste like it was just cut and brought over to our table right away, Might return here in a couple years..

This place is a complete joke. We have preordered a birthday cake for our 12yo niece's birthday party. They forgot to fill an order for a birthday cake, did not have the ingredients to make it, but eventually agreed to buy some supplies to make it last minute and promised that resulting cake will look as close as what was ordered possible. They said they were missing strawberry puree, but went and bought strawberries. One clerk said the puree is also mixed into the inside of the cake and thus was an important ingredient. When the cake was picked up, it looked nothing like what was ordered. Original cake is covered with strawberries. Cake received has a thin layer of jam like sauce on top and that was it. The inside has no hint of strawberry puree either. There was not one slice of strawberry on the cake. Birthday cake message was incomplete so I asked the guy that was there to add what was missing. What was added on afterwards was utterly horrible. So I told him to at least put some pieces of strawberries on top so that it would somewhat resemble what it should look like and cover the horrible icing writing. We only took away the cake because we had no choice as we cannot return to the birthday party empty handed. The guy at the store did apologize but emphasized that they went out just to get fresh ingredients so that they can make this cake today, just for me. Needless to say, I was speechless and was in disbelief. This is the worst experience I've had with any orders I have made.

Great food and brew

I tried the new Witchcraft Bistro in Maple Ridge. Formerly the Witch or Witch of Endor. The place looks real neat inside. Decorated with old doors and such give it kind of a rustic look.
We ordered wings, Pizza and Beef dip. It was all very good with Kettle cooked chips. I was impressed. The maple bourbon wings were spectacular. Definitly not your average pub-style wings. So delicious, cooked to perfection. Only thing is they didn't give enough wings. Pizza was totally fresh tasting, they did emphasize how they like to keep everything as local as possible right down to the flour in the dough. Beef dip was great,the portions are good size.
I tried several beers from some local crafts bewers. A fine selection. You can order the 5 beer sampler for around $11 to 15 as they do in other craft brew establishments. Fraser Valley IPA was my preferred taste for that day. The Mission Springs Lemon Ginger Radler was nice as well, refreshing and light.
My jaw dropped a little when i got the bill, But i think i will be back to try other stuff just not too too soon. Now i'm going to try and make that bourbon wing sauce.

I highly recommend this place if you are looking for something out of the ordinary. Cheers :)

Mediocre food, abysmal service
By VJB of abbotsford (169 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, December 21, 2015 - 11:33am [Dine in]

This was a very disappointing evening.
There is seating downstairs and upstairs as well as patios on both levels. We were seated on the upstairs level. The upstairs is the more formal of the two with white linen tablecloths and a more formal atmosphere. They have a couple of tables on the outside patio upstairs and they looked very nice. It is a beautiful room and the menu prices are not unreasonable if the food is good (it was not) and the service is good (absolutely one of the worst experiences I’ve had service wise in a restaurant.)
Water was brought to our table reasonably quickly but after that it was a good 20 minutes before anyone asked if we would like a drink. Dinner took over 2 hours and we had l glass of wine each, 1 entrée each and a shared dessert. A table of 2 ladies beside us had appetizer, entrees and dessert and were finished their dinner and we still had not received our entrée. They sat down 20 minutes after we did. I guess if you’re 2 attractive ladies you can expect better service. For entrees my husband had the lamb shank that he said was very good. I had a ½ Cornish game hen that was overcooked and came with very bitter kale and potato rosti. We waited well over ½ an hour from the time we ordered dessert until it was brought to the table. We shared a pecan tart. I’ve had better pecan tart from Safeway. I told my husband that I should give them my recipe for pie crust as their crust was lacking any flavor and slightly on the tough side.
It is really unfortunate because it is a beautiful room and the prices are reasonable for the Yaletown area but the food was not good and the service is a joke. My husband is generally a very generous tipper but I told him that the service was so bad that he needed to adjust his tipping accordingly.
We would not return. There are too many really good restaurants to give this one another try.

I go often and some of my favorites are Oyster Motoyaki, green salad, gomae, Prawn Tempura, Salmon Sashimi, avacado rolls and cones. I'd also recomend the crunchy dynamite roll. I do agree with one of the other posters that the mayo does overpower in flavour and it wouldn't hurt to request a bit less.

Fusion delight

Submitted Thursday, December 17, 2015 - 8:54pm [Dine in]

East is East is one of those places you either love or hate. I personally liked the ambiance of the place, the softness that is contrasted by the wood tables and all, but maybe because I had not heard much about it. My colleagues were a little disappointed because they felt the place had been hyped, and weren't too fond of the lack of lighting.

That aside though, the food was incredible. A bit of a fusion between Indian food and Afghan food made for a great selection. I personally am a fan of Asian and ethnic so I didn't mind. There was a wide variety of veg & non-vegetarian dishes: I opted for the Bombay Masala and Mughal(?) to try a bit of both. Extremely tasty - the coconut curry was delicious and the chicken did not disappoint. Not too spicy, and definitely worth it.

Initially when we first called them up to try their famous deep dish they told us there would be a wait…of at least 45 minutes. Apparently that is how long the special deep dish takes to make? Since there was still time for the game to begin we said okay and what was like 50 minutes later (or so it seemed) we found ourselves with a medium sized Chicago special staring back at us. The pizza definitely is nothing like what I’ve ever had, and cannot be eaten with your hands. The sauce was amazingly tangy and tasted unique, and with the thickness of the cheese we had to use a fork to hold it all. Lasted throughout the game so that was good.

Let me just start off by saying that I've been to the Red Onion before but stopped going because I felt that their service was going downhill. Decided to try it out again but was disappointed.

Didn't think a burger place could go so bad. I should’ve figured it out from the lack of people in this place. I ordered a red onion burger and some fries; the meat was a bit hard and burnt and the fries were a bit cold and greasy. Was a bit disappointed as it was not cheap. I think I would give them less stars but the waitresses were okay. They were helpful and did not treat me bad. Other than that, give this place a miss.
