If you're from BC you already know exactly what the White Spot is all about. I was raised on triple-O burgers and pirate packs as a kid and as an adult I still frequent White Spots all over BC very regularily. This particular White Spot on Scott Road is like most of the others... great food (mmm burgers!), nice employees, good value and a fun atmosphere. Both of my grandparents were HUGE White Spot people and, not surpisingly, my father and mother were both raised on White Spot as well.. my brother and cousins were all raised on White Spot.. and I hope to, very soon, make sure my young son gets his fill of White Spot... that's four generations of family that all love, trust and enjoy this place. Without getting too ridiculous, I believe the White Spot has been much more than a restaurant to my family.. it's also been a part of our family culture/ tradition and a (relatively) important part of our upbringings. I hope it stays around for a long time.. I know it's only a restaurant, but it's also holds another meaning to us that maybe I can't quite put into words...
My family and I went to Hakka Masti for the first time several months ago on recommendation from a friend. We were sceptical at first but were truly surprised. The food is exceptional, and being vegetarians we usually dont get a large choice. There are OVER 80 VEGERARIAN DISHES. We were amazed at the variety to choose from.
The food was superbly cooked and the staff and service was excellent. The ambiance is quiet, and peaceful. Each dish is unique in its own way and is definetly a restaurant i highly recommend everyone one to go to. This restauraunt has become one of my favorite restaurant amongside Green Lettuce, another exceptionally great restaurant.
I have read reviews where people compain about the service, and I frankly have no idea what they are talking about. The waiters were nice respectful, and the food arrived in an extremely reasonable amount of time. Another option that I think is really neat that they do is, you can order on phone before you go to the restaurant and by the time you come, they will have it ready for you to eat there. Its dining in without the long wait of many restaurants!
Everyone, especially vegetarians should check this place out. With 200+ dishes, and 80+ vegetarian dishes you will always be satisfied with this restaurant. Their dishes are indescribably delicious, exotic, unique mouth watering. You have to try them to understand what I am saying The atmosphere is fantastic, and the service and food is equally brilliant. Anyone who does not go to this restaurant is honestly out of their mind.
I went in because I noticed they served bubble tea to get one for my husband and I. The smoothies we chose were both OK. Price not too bad @ $3.75 each, about average compared to other bubble tea places. But the pearls were small and tough. That might be the way some people like them, but not me. I like them big and chewy.
I used my debit card and was charged 15 cents to do so.
I found the restaurant to be dirty. When I was at the cash register paying I noticed the garbage bin is right beneath the counter. Filthy, disgusting dried food parts were on the flap. That in itself was so gross I'll never come back here.
I highly recommend Mt. Fuji as an outstanding place to dine. I have been a regular customer for many years. The service, and friendly staff have always welcomed me back. Michael is a great sushi chef,with a talent to remember each customer and what their likes and dislikes are. He has always taken note of that and sincerely welcomes new faces regularly. The food is excellent. I have always loved the quality and portion sizes.Staff is always friendly and prompt no matter how busy they are.
Thank you Michael and Tiffany.
We are regular customers of Mt. Fuji and enjoy the sushi immensely. It's always so fresh and wonderfully prepared. I love the wild salmon as I am not fond of farmed. Michael is an amazing sushi chef producing an incredible amount of sushi in a very short time. Always a smiling face and great conversation. Thank you, Michael and Tiffany.
We had a last minute guest show up and we picked up some take out from this restaurant. The food was fresh and flavorful with great customer service and descent prices. The restaurant is centrally located, holds better hours of operation than the other local sushi restaurants and offers a wide variety to their menu. We had take out, but the ambiance seemed quaint and clean. The take out food was well packaged and far larger portions than we had expected. Being a local Ladner resident we're a kicking ourselves for not trying this place sooner.
I love this restaurant. It's right in the middle of a busy shopping area and it's a great place to drop in for some unpretentious lunch. The food is good and reasonably priced and comes out of the prep area quickly. You can watch him make it if you sit at the bar. The staff is very nice and friendly and your tea cup is never empty.
I've been a long time customer at this restaurant (5 yrs ++). At first the food was really good and the portion was perfect for amount you pay. But I've noticed that the portion has gone down. The bread is no longer soft, it's dry and you can hardly bite into it. The roast lam is not consistant. Sometimes it's moist and sometimes it's dry. As for the service, I don't expect any special treatment. Every single time we go, the manger always has a grumpy look and never smiles (to us). But I assume it's just how she is or that she has had a rough day. She would talk with other people, but NEVER us. Recently we went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. The waitress had seated us at the table. the manager laters come to us and without asking, tells us we have to move that we can't sit there. All she had to do was ask, but she was so rude about it. There are some really nice waitress there, but I can't say that for the rest. I'm not trying to just point out all the bad about this restaurant. In fact, it USE to be my family's favorite place to celebrate special occasion. I won't be going back again. Sometimes eventhough the food may be good, but if the service is less to be desired, it doesn't make up for it.
Went to Denny's for a late meal after driving around in the area and realizing nothing was still open except for Denny's. The parkade in the back was very dark and didn't seem very safe. As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a very friendly manager who took us to a booth. The decor and atmosphere was nothing to write home about, but the service and food both pleasantly surprised us that evening.
Our server was a very pleasant lady who was genuine and attentive. We ordered a burger and a sandwich, which took a while to arrive. As we were wondering what was going on with our order, the server came to notify us that they had run out of burger buns and the manager had gone out to try and buy some. It was rather late (close to midnight) and we appreciated their effort. We agreed to having bread instead so we could start enjoying the food sooner. However, the manager came back and so we got the burger a couple of minutes later. My beloved dinner companion said the burger was "soooo good", claiming it to be one of the best he's ever tasted. (and he's a burger fan!) I tried a bite and it was very delicious, juicy and fresh. My sandwich was very tasty as well, everything tasted very fresh, even the fries.
Overall, we were very pleased with the quality of food and service that evening. Certainly not what we were expecting from a Denny's.
I simply adore the food at Hadi's!
The service is great, they are usually so busy at lunch time, but they always try to make the effort to be very friendly.
The restaurant is quite large, and is dated, but I'm not going there for the decor, I'm far to busy stuffing my face with the scrumptious food. Every week day at lunch time there are home cooked specials. The Italian omelet is legendary, the salami and pepperoni hot sub with fried onions calls to me in the night. I find myself craving the greek-spiced chicken breast in pita.
Oftentimes, you can come by to grab some food and it is lined up out the door with truckers coming in for their lunch specials (they can be chicken cordon blue, pot roast dinner with potatoes and vegetables, ribs, or even borscht.
If you are driving past the Tilbury Industrial Park or near 76th and River road, stop in and see what the specials are!
You won't be disappointed!
I go to Go-Go sushi about once a week at work because I just can not get enough of their sushi. It is my favorite restaurant for sushi, and I have to agree with the others that it is easier to get take out than eat in the restaurant. There is limited seating and it gets very crowded because it is so popular. Their yam roll is well priced and my favorite! I find their rolls well priced, a chicken teriyaki roll is $3.95 and a tempura yam roll is $2.99 (I've paid $5.95 and $4.95 respectively at other places)
Their dragon roll is quite tasty, it's an "investment" roll - 8 huge pieces stuffed to the brim - I recommend sharing it with your more adventurous friends.
I've driven 30 mins just to get Go-Go's sushi, so if you're local, it's worth the quick stop in!
I have been visiting the Rose & Crown Pub for many years as I have family that lives in Tsawwassen. Generally I really liked this pub, and wished we had one like it in my town. The last few years the pub has provided good food, fun atmosphere and amazing service - the service is what kept me coming back. The servers were fast, witty, and full of personality. Or, it used to be. This past year I have been there on 3 occasions, and all three visits I was provided with mediocre service. It was slow, incorrect, and apathetic. Most of the staff looked like they didn't want to be there. I was under the impression that the management hired servers for their personality, but apparently that isn't the case anymore. I'm really disappointed that this great little pub's standards have so quickly declined. No more recommendations from me.
I almost didn't want to review this place because every time I've been there the restaurant is packed. People in Ladner know how amazing this place is and it's quite apparent. This is the best sushi I've had (haven't been to Tojo's) and I've been to countless sushi joints. Their spicy tuna rolls are the best I've had for sure. Everything here is very fresh and their sushi rice is awesome.
The restaurant itself is very small and sort of cramped, I suggest calling in advance picking up, buying a bottle of wine and going out to one of Ladner's many beautiful vantage points for a picnic.
Outstanding Value for the quality of food.
My uncle brought me to this restaurant and he thought it was good. Unfortunately he has really bad taste and doesn't know what good food is. I told him never to return.
The food isn't authentic... and there are a lot of other vietnamese restaurants that taste MUCH MUCH better. The service is VERY bad the waitress is so rude... ! And I agree with the last post, their soup is filled with MSG and I had to drink gallons of water to compensate for that.
Avoid this place by all means!
This location is located in an awkward portion of a North Delta stripmall right next to a very noisy & popular pub patio. When going into this place I find myself wondering why we didn't pick the pub it looks funner. The owners are a bit odd. I've tried a few things from their menu, nothing was stellar. They also offer some Japanese and Chinese dishes on their menu not quite sure why. The pho here has ample meat however the broth is not authentic, they rely on MSG for flavour and I don't like that they take this shortcut. The best pho in that area is Pho Tam located near Surrey Central, they make their broth from scratch.
We have been at Akari today. The Food was very good, the value for dinner special very fair and the service quick and nice. Akari is in our opinion above the avarage of japanese restaurants in the area.
We did not have all the rools they offer but we are confident that they taste as interesting and creative as they look in the menu.
We had guests from UK and they were treated to a dinner at this place by North Vancouver resident. When we heard that people from North Vanc visits this restaurant. It made us curious and decided to try it out. On that stormy nite we went there dinner and the quality of food and service was way better than other indian restaurants we have been to. Food was so good that we have been to Desi Junctions twice in one week. So far so good.
I really wanted to cool off so I convinced my sister to go here. Should have went next door to get a smoothie instead. The quality of the ice cream is comparable to what you would get at a grocery store. The mango lassi was okay. I've had better ones elsewhere. Service was average. The place wasn't clean. Supplies everywhere. I didn't even ask for a sample because I believe they reused the spoons and I question how well they clean it. My sister just picked a random flavor and we left shortly afterwards.
My friend and I had lunch at Applewood today. We both had the quiche of the day (tomato bacon) which came with salad, a pot of tea and for dessert strawberry rhubarb pie with ice cream. The service was attentive and warm rolls were provided for free. The quiche was delicious, as was the pie. The salad was a bit bland. Overall a lovely (small) little tea room with scrumptious, "just like home" (in a good way) cooking. I would definitely go again!
I live in North Delta, and this pub has been around for a long time. I've been to this pub several times, both with co-workers and with The Other Half.
Having an appointment at a nearby bank on Friday, the Delta Lion was handy for lunch. The OH ordered the special, Cajun Chicken Wrap with caesar salad substituted for fries. I asked the server what she thought of the poutine, and she said "it's really good". She did not make eye contact when she said this, but I ordered poutine anyway.
The "Cajun" barely made an appearance in the OH's wrap. Caesar salad was "OK". The poutine I ordered must have escaped the kitchen before all the cheese was added - either that or they were experiencing a cheese shortage. It was very difficult to find ANY cheese under all the gravy. Not a good example of poutine, pub-food or not.
The room is big and dark, two levels, lots of big screens. The washrooms are out of the pub and across the hall. They were clean.
Value? $6.95 got me a plate of flabby fries drowned in gravy (oh, and a few shreds of cheese - have to be fair here... )
Service was fine, but the server seemed to want to be somewhere else...
