Being from Delta I decided to go check this place out a few years back. I have no complaints, the donuts are fresh and always stocked. Unlike other franchises that turn you back and don't make fresh batches by the hour. This place is really cares about its customers.
I just love how they are hot and fresh so heavenly.
We love it here. The food is hot and fresh and very tasty. We have never had a bad experience here. Service there is outstanding, more like going to a good friends house for awesome food. We especially love the beef and ginger hot pot, pan fried prawns and curried chicken. My kids love going here because they get spoiled by the staff.
I love this Japanese restraunt. They remember my name and are very friendly. The food quality is good. Usually very fresh. Its a quaint restraunt. Clean and well seated for the space. I usually end up ordering about $50 worth of food because I can't decide what I like best to eat. :P I can't help but eat here once a week. I usually don't bother going anywhere else for sushi anymore.
I've been going to Go-Go sushi for several years now and their food has just been improving ever since. The owners are very friendly and kind and their service is quick. The food is great quality and is plenty enough to fill anyone up. For dine there's only approx. 10 seats so take out is a usual. I'd recommend this place to anyone who's looking for a small sushi take-out that's fairly inexpensive and big portions.
Great Pizza!!I wish I could just stop there!LOL.My Family & myself have been going to Niagara for years!!The food is great,the pricing is more than fair!Overall you will not find a better Greek restaurant in Ladner.Family owned,we always see the same staff!The place needs a new makeover,but the food is so good,ill put up with bad art work & colours!
Not a big mexican fan-so right off the bat,I was a little worried about going there.My wife had a good point-"if foods good,who cares what it is,what country it's from".Ive had good mexican before so I was hoping I was in for a nice surprise.The layout was different,but neat & cozy inside.The staff was ok at best,then the worst part,-the food!K so needless to say I was dissapointed,& I wouldn't go back.
We first tried Alfa's years ago[like 10].It was always good,& my family & I always came back.First off,the staff there is great!!Seems like everytime we go,its the same staff,& thats a good sighn!Everybody is friendly & nice.The food is priced ok maybe a bit high,but in my book,its worth it,Ive had thier Pizza,most of the Greek dish's,& even thier steaks are good!Hands down the best greek food in the Ladner Tsawwassen area,its been there a long time,& will probably always be there!
I have been here several times before I jump on the Richmond highway and boy I always leave happy. Good food, good service. Will definitley be there tomorrow actually mmm anyone else coming in for some tasty vietnamese food?
My favourite is the house special number 1 loaded with meat and the ordinary same ol same ol if you love it as much as I do then ya know what I mean. =) Highly recommend this place if you're in the neighbourhood. Theres no other place in that area that'll top the food you get there.
Great food! I love greek food and the Greek Village is up there with other good greek restaurants. Tiropita (feta cheese pie) is fantastic! I was salvating for week after eating it. I have gone there probably around a dozen times since I work quite close by. The food is good and most of the serves are pretty nice, one in particular is great. The owner can seem a bit grumpy and unfriendly but she usually isn't serving. I normally get the Lamb Souvlaki and it is very very tasty. I have never been disapointed with a meal there. Prices are reasonable as well.
Been here a couple of times as I used to live in Tsawwassen. Am of Greek lineage, so pickier about Greek food than the regular Joe. Usually have Moussaka when I go to a Greek restaurant, as it is my fav. They make a decent one, but not the best I have had. The calamari is usually pretty good, but on a rare occasion, it comes across bland and oily. The fasolada is NOT like mom's... more like a bean and veg soup, should have dill and other seasonings besides just salt and pepper. My partner was very disappointed as he loves it. I had the avgolemono, basic chicken soup base and orzo, finished off with egg finish, but, NOT very Greek using powdered soup base. Greek salad was ok, and so was the hummus. The souvlaki is ok as is the rice it is served with, nothing to write home about. All in all, it is ok.
I have been a fan of Yummy Wonton House for a while and usually go on Sunday mornings (when it's dead). When the resturant is just opening and not busy, the service is good and the food is excellent (It's hard to find real Chinese food in Surrey).
On the other hand, I went to the restaurant for the first time during its peak hours and found the restaurant to be the complete opposite. The restaurant was in shambles because it was understaffed and the host kept seating more and more people and taking more and more pick-up orders. The restaurant was not completely full, but the small rush of customers was still too much for the two waitresses and the one bus boy to handle.
We waited a couple of minutes before we were seated and once we were seated it took they a while to get to us to take our order. Once we ordered, we got our soup relatively quickly (off to an okay start)...then we waited for over half an hour in anticipation for our other two dishes. Finally, I asked the waitress where are food was (I say "finally" because the waitresses avoided eye-contact with us because they were so flustered and busy). She apologized and checked with the kitched to see where our food was.
When she came out, she brought food with her...but for another table. I had to try to catch eye-contact with her again to ask if our food prep had even been started. After a long laboured pause...she said that it hadn't been started (after 40 minutes of waiting). At that point we decided to cancel the order and ask for the bill. We were given apologies from the host (of which most of the time seemed to do very little as the waitresses rushed about) and were told we didn't have to pay for our $7 bill (for the soup that we split between 3 people).
Even though our bill was covered in the end, it was embarassing to bring my friends to a place that was not well managed/managed at all during dinner time. I had been raving about how great the place was before that night, now I don't know if the quality of food is worth it. I also noticed that the table next to us were getting impatient because their waitress disappeared when they wanted to order.
I have a suggestion for the owners of YW: Next time you're understaffed, stop taking orders by phone an stop seating new customers you cannot accomodate with good service.
T.I.P.S. -To Insure Prompt Service
Incredible hype when Krispy Kreme was coming to the Lower Mainland. Too bad it had to be Delta.
I think it was once open 24hrs but that is no longer the case. Once the crowds and lineups dispersed so did their appeal.
I won't lie I really do like their Original Glazed. I could only eat a couple at one sitting. They always seem to taste fresh even if they're not. It melts in your mouth like no other donut I've had. Sometimes I crave it but it's still just a donut.
The inside is like something out of a TV show or something you'd see in the states. Very retro. It always looks spotless but I guess now because so few people come by there. Service is good (how could it not be) although on our last visit I felt bad for the counterperson standing there waiting for us to pick what we wanted. She was tired, not physically but of her presence in a quiet solitude.
I think many of us had that "to die for" notion when it first appeared in our backyard but most of it was probably founded on the hype. Their downhill descent was only fuelled with lifestyle changes for the mass and health/media sources damning the place and their products for it's high sugar, fat and caloric content. I'm sure it doesn't help either when they're so far outside the city's core.
Honestly though while backing out of my stall and driving away it felt as if their time is coming.
So its Saturday nite and nobody wanted to cook, called Robbs for pick-up, even though we have noticed a huge difference in quality since the new owners. But we had freinds over and we recommended it, having had a good experience the last time. Well not only was the meal soggy, under cooked and almost, except for the fact our husbands where starving, inedible. The pieces of fish were very small and there were fries for 3 people not for the six we paid for. So I decided to call Robbs and register our complaint (which we have never done before). The acting manager intimated it was our fault because we didn't bother bringing it back. She was defensive and said it was way better with the new owners because she had worked for both. Not once did she express any dismay and apologize. When we said we had better fish and chips elsewhere she said she wasn't interested and you get what you get. Then she hung up on me. Only one last thing to say, don't eat there, they do not value their customers.
My wife and I had an hour or so to kill on a Monday night so we decided to eat out. We picked Desi Junction out of the Entertainment Book and in we went. I love good Indian food and can't tolerate bad. We ordered chicken korma, aloo gobi, and dal makhni, with garlic naan and rice. The dal was a little bland, perhaps, but not bad. The korma was very good. There were only 5 pieces of chicken in the sauce, but they were large pieces, several bites each. The aloo gobi was full-bodied. One complaint is that two of the dishes had inedible bits in them (bay leaves and stems of something).
Service was perfectly adequate. It was attentive until the place got busy, and then the server was hustling around trying to keep everyone happy. Servings were decent-sized. We will get lunches out of each. Finally, the interior is mostly standard restaurant, with booths and tables. The decor is pleasant. There are TVs up high, two of which were playing Indian music videos.
It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't at all bad. I'd go back when I'm in the area.
Oh, BTW: Whereas some places take off the price of the smallest dish (even appys sometimes) using the Entertainment Book coupon, this place took off the largest price. Maybe it was because we ordered 3 dishes for 2 people, but it was nice and unexpected.
We get large orders of a variety of sushi for takeout for our family of 5 on a regular basis. It is consistently fresh and delicious.
Best plan is to phone in an order ahead as they get very busy and unfortunately have only a small number of tables for eating in.
We can highly recommend this place.
I love the sushi here - it can't be beat. The rolls are always moist and flavorful, and you get the best "bang for your buck" here. If I am coming to eat in, I usually bring a book because you come to eat - not to impress here. I would not bring a client/family member here to eat in, but if I was having a business lunch in the office I would most definetely have to brought from here. I will go no where else!
I have lived in Ladner my entire life and decided to try Mt. Fuji sushi today. I was disappointed. The food was OK, but there are better sushi restaurants in the immediate vicinity that charge the same or less. The california rolls were small and there was not much flavor. I arrived before the high school crowd to place a take out order, and was asked to wait while the waitress took an order from some other customers. Then the phone rang, then another set of customers came in...I felt like I was more a nuisance than a customer. The phone customer had his order placed before mine, even though I was waiting to place an order. All in all, I will probably not be going back, unless I want sushi on a Sunday, as this is the only sushi restaurant open on Sundays in Ladner.
I have to agree with the previous esteemed reviewer that this place is going downhill. I recently went to KK because I was in the area and because I remembered how great it was when I first tried their doughnuts a week after the store opened. The place still looked the same, but the crowds were gone, and I could park right in front. The staff still wore the signature hats, but underneath there was obvious despair. Service was good though since I was the only customer there.
As for the doughnuts, the KK's of memory didn't match up to the expensive little morsel I got. Plus they were WAY too sweet. I had a regular glazed, but didn't finish it.
I won't be back.
Back in the day when KK donuts were all the craze, they were by far top of the list for best donuts. But that was when it wasn't yet available in BC just yet. I don't know if it's the water here, or something else, but KK donuts here just don't measure up. Yes, they are still tasty, but I find them overly sweet and fake tasting - if that's possible.
Over the past years, my opinion of them keeps going on the decline. They've gotten more expensive and smaller. Even their famous "when-the-light-is-on-come-in-for-a-free-glazed" is gone.
Unfortunately, I cannot say I heart KK donuts any longer.
My family have been going to Mt. Fuji for years. Micheal and his wife are true professionals. All the food we have eaten is fresh and well prepared. The service even when it is busy is freindly and prompt. We dine there (eat in or take out) at least once a month,. They are part of the community and are 2 very caring and genuine people. We don't go any where else for sushi and are never dissapointed!
