This is a wonderful little cafe. It has a very relaxed atmosphere which is very welcoming. The coffee is excellent with one of the best americanos I have ever had the pleasure of sipping. The breakfast and pastries also make an excellent treat. If you are a cafe hopper like myself, this one is certainly worth checking out.
Last week I went to Sammy's Chophouse. It's a hole in the wall pub/diner. I had passed it many times. I don't regret going in. I met my waitress named Christina. WHAT A SMILE and drop dead sexy. I didn't expect that from a place like this. She was probably the cutest and nicest waitress I have ever had, even in the high end establishments. I got the steak sandwich, and it was very good for the price.
Even if the food wasn't any good, I'd go back to see the waitress again and again. Next time I'm going to tip her good. I didn't go with a lot of cash because I didn't expect it to be as good as I thought, otherwise I would have tipped her and had a few more beer. Next time!
Bang For Your Buck: 8
Well worth the visit.
So-Caffe Crema is my new favourite home away from home. I can walk there (huge bonus) and I love the espresso. I can't believe there is a place this good so far south-you'd expect it on 17th or downtown, but now we have one too! I love free wi-fi, I love great service and I love that it has a HUGE seating area. Ridiculously wonderful :)
If you love to drink beer, be in a relaxed environment , get great service and huge portioned food...This is the pub for you . Not only is Three Crowns one of the biggest and cleanest establishments I have ever been too, the Staff make a great point to know every regular and every newbie. My first encounter I sat at the bar by my self. I ate the King Burger which was Giant , Juicy and had me wanting another one three days later. When I got up to leave maybe 2 hours after I arrived , The fellow behind the bar said good bye ( using my name ) shook my hand and told me to come back soon. I have since been back every week, for my night out , a great meal and wonderful company ! I would give this pub a 10 out of 10. I do not have one complaint!
Everyone knows that having a Tim Hortons means owing a gold mine. Timmis is Timmis, but its hard to swallow when served in such a condescending way. Long Waits, rude service, unhelpful cashiers, and Today topped it all off. Today I picked up a dozen cookies and a pack of 40 Tim Bits, an order which took over 10 minutes to fill with attendants looking panicked at each other like ‘you do it-no you do it’ plus three minutes to study the order screen to see what complicated order I have asked for, when all I want is an assortment of 40 Tim Bits. They had 8 different Tim Bits available; I thought that was a great assortment, (5 of each would make a great work treat). That beside the point, I got my order come to the office to find ONLY THREE types of Tim Bits and all Sour Dough which I hate. Like REALLY! OMG 8 different Tim Bits and you give me 3 Sour Dough. Thank you for the Rude, Slow, Wasteful Tim Horton’s EVER. I do not write reviews, but Enough is Enough!
july-2010, this is the biggest and most fancy chinese restaurant in town, it serve daily DimSum, lunch and
dinner, also any banquet over 200 is held here.The foods is good,services is good and the price is high.
It has a small parking in it's basement, good for wedding in the winter. I have been here many time and
the foods is always of high quality and will be back.
june-2009, this place have buffet special for lunch and dinner, the type of foods suite Caucasians mostly,
but you can order from the menu as well.For their type of foods,I say the price is too high and the quality
is not that good, so I have been ther about 3 times, but not looking forward to go back.
aug,2010, this is in the middle of chinatown also, the most dependalbe restaurant in town. We been there for
Dim Sum, to dinner, to banquet ( hold about 170 ) the foods is always hot and the service is good, the price
is bit high, but we always go back whenever we can, the parking downtown is poor,so we don't go as aften
as we like.
aug,2010, this is one of the best family restaurant in town, the foods is higher than average good, the price
is lower then average, the service is average,just speak up and you will get whatever you want. This place
always have daily specials,also serve dimsum at anytime, have clay-pot special rice dish,also have
ful course dinner for 10 persons table, so for small party to large family dinner, this is the place. They also
have after 9PM congee specials,so whatever you want,they will serve it.Love this place.
aug,2010, this is one of my favourite,close to home,parking is good, the foods is average,service is
average, the price is average,from dim sum, to dinner the foods is average to good ,the services is not bad.
We went there many time and always get a table without long wait,so we use it most time without anyting
june,2010, this is one of the best in Chinatown, most of the time, the foods is the best in town,the price is
most expensive, and the services is the slowest in town. This place is always full, from opening to closing,
you have to waite 30 to 60 min.to get a table, the foods is alway hot and great, the waiters is the slowest
in town if not the planet, however, everyone in town ,( Chinese of course),would love to eat here, from the
poorest to the richest.
june,2009,this is an old Chinatown restaurant,service chinese foods, alone with varity of BBQ ducks,
roast pork,soysause chicken,and bbq meats. The bbq meats is very good,always brought some whenever
we walk by. Run by the family, so the foods is average, services is bad to none, but the portion is big and the
price is low, so if you are looking for a bargin for lunch or dinner, this is the place.
june,2010, this is our favourite restaurant, it is a very fine restaurant, from Dim Sum, dinner, to banquet, you
can always get quality foods and services the price is on the high side, but you can bring anyone with you,
you will get what you want.We always go there for our special occasion,birthday,new year,even wedding.
july,2010, the foods here is always good and the price is not bad,the service is average, but the parking is
very poor, in the winter, hard to get in and out. This place always have it's special dishes and always turn
out very good, has been here many time, either with my family or with other familys, the food is always
in high quality, the prices is very average, so you will get your money's worth.
june,2009, went there with 2 friends,so the 4 of us have dinner there,the foods is fine , nothing special,
the services is very good,I think it is a family run place, the price is average,so if we were close to this place
we will give it another try. The reason we went there,was becaue I thought this is a special restaurant that
makes good Oyster pancakes and special salted ducks,but it turn out to be another cantonese one.
Aug,2010, I hope everything have change about this place, my family was here about 10 years ago and most
of us got food poisoning from this place, and have not been back, so hope they as changed, whatever,
we certainly will not be back. Back then, the chinese foods is really for Caucasians and not Chineses,
and I have the feeling that they prefer to service Caucasians as well.
Aug,2010, my favourite chinese restaurant, the food is of high quality, the service is good but not great,
the price is on the high side, but you get your value every time. I have Dim Sum here many mornings,
have supper and banquet here as well,if you wants good quality Cantonese foods, this is the place.
aug.2010, have been here many time because the location is convence, fast food, no waste of time.
The quality of food is mediocre, around medium compare to others in the city, some are worse and some
are lot better, but if you are bring a big family or lots of friends and do not want to break the bank, this is
the place.The selections is huge, chinese cantonese foods, dim sum, or roast beef, hot and sour soup,
wonton soup,and ice cream,around $18 per adult,you will get your money's worth;but if you want to impress
your future mother or father-in-law about your good taste in C. foods, bring them somewhere else.
aug,2009,this is my second time here, both time we have a great time, food, service,and value are solid,
the foods is real Cantonese style,mix with some northern chinese. The first time here, we just have 4
of us for normal Supper, the second time,we were here for a Birthday Party of 50 and we have full set
dinner of 10 selections and all come out very good. Will be back for sure.
Mirchi is without a doubt one of my absolute all-time favourite restaurants in Calgary, it is the best hands down!. I have been coming here on a regular basis and every time its perfect. Arrive at whatever time you choose (the lunch buffet is amazing), choose your table, and hang out by the bar(to be open soon, a personal promise by the Owner Mr. Amjad Shehzad), get to know your neighbours, and enjoy a bevvie or two as well as some exquisitely tasty appetizer. I have dined on Monday nights and Tuesdays as well as on Fridays and Saturdays and really haven't noticed much of a difference to be honest. The whole point is just to relax and enjoy an extravagant feast. Once seated we then can order right away. The service at Mirchi is excellent and unlike that of any other restaurant I have patronized. The motto among the wait staff is "we are all your servers" Dont be suprised if you see the owner running around with trays of appetizers & entrees, which to me, puts in that extra personal service! Not only does it expedite the service to customers but it also equalizes the relations among servers by eliminating any potential competitiveness over particular tables and arguments over tips. The food is second to none, with each of the curry dishes having their own incredible and unique characteristics and flavours. I love the Achari chicken curry as well as the mixed vegetables, and the halibut dish. Its a great feeling to be welcomed by Amjad he is there many nights of the week to talk with and serve customers and to make diners feel at home. Words cannot describe how much I like this place. It's no wonder that people come from all over to dine here. Mirchi's outstanding reputation is one that is well earned!
