The rolls here are the best I've had *anywhere*! I eat here quite a lot and the food is consistently great. Their soups are wonderfully load with vegetables. Their ebi sunomuno is actually ebi instead of prawn. Their sashimi is wild salmon and really fresh.
Their service can be a little dodgy because they get SO busy and they're a tiny place. But it's a cozy wait and the tea's wonderful to sip on.
I don't know what the comment about not having many Japanese chefs was about. I'm pretty sure everyone there is Japanese except for one waitress...they all speak it to each other while they make your rolls in front of you.
Our previous visit to the Cactus Club was quite acceptable, this experience was even better. We were warmly greeted by the hostess, informed our table would be about ten minutes, and were promptly offered seats at the bar to enjoy a cocktail while we waited. The bellini was excellent. We were seated quickly. The service was great, very attentive and helpful. The food was delicious. My fiance ordered the 9oz Blackened Creole Striploin, the meat was cooked perfectly, the creole butter was excellent, and the seasonal vegetables were grilled and seasoned perfectly. I ordered the Spinach and Artichoke Quesadilla, which was great stuffed with peppers and feta and served with a spicy yogurt sauce, awesome. Overall a very pleasant evening, would definatly return. Really nice wine menu, lots of B.C. selections.
Our family has been going to this fine estashment for 25 years. The owner and his family are second to none with their hospitality and food which compares to no one. Their consistency hasnt changed and thats what keeps us coming back. Our favorite waiter, Kenny, who has been there for 20 somewhat years greets us like his own family. Everyone must try this place. A must try is their Deep Fried Ice Cream. If you have room after dinner its a must try. There are too many good experiences. To limit them to just one would be wrong
Enjoy driving out here for the fresh hot doughnuts and different coffees. They have a drive thru but it is also fun to go inside and see the many different types of donuts. Was nice to get a fresh hot original glazed doughnut when the "hot light" flashed on. Also love their white cream filled original or chocolate iced doughnuts. Got a coffee card for all their different coffees and it was easy to get the card stamped full and get a free specialty coffee. Nice mochas/lattes krispy kreme style.
Finally got to try high tea with a friend and were not disappointed. Loved the scones, jam, and devon cream. The tea was delicious with the lil sandwiches and cakes too. Very cute china and cutlery. Nice shop inside to browse if waiting but we had reservations as it gets busy for high tea bookings. Nice surprise.
The food at the delta location was great. They had a really good breakfast menu, many different selections to choose from! Awesome service. Not too long of a wait on a sunday afternoon. Staff was really nice, and the service was fast.
The Decor was average. Very plain and simple.
Restaurant was very clean.
Overall We liked it and hands down would go there again.
This place is amazing. Nearly 10 years ago, my wife and I went on our honeymoon to Greece. The primrose made us feel as though we were back there. The decor is unreal as it mimics a patio setting in a courtyard with an open kitchen. This reminded my wife and I of the restaurants we dined at on the Greek Islands.
The food was simply marvelous! For appetizers we had calamari and this greek cheese that is flambéed on a pan. The calamari was the best tasting calamari I have ever had!
For dinner, I had the Rack of Lamb, and my wife had the delmon steak. Let me tell you, the Rack was the best cooked lamb I have ever experienced. The server highly recommended it and boy were they right! My wife's steak was also amazing as it was covered in blue-cheese and fried onions. For desert we shared a creme caramel (My favorite desert!) which was to die-for.
The service was great, really friendly from the moment you walk in. My only complaint was how full the place was on a Friday night, so I do recommend to call ahead of time. The place was packed with a line-up at the door, but let me tell you it was well worth the wait. The Bartender offered us drinks at the bar while we were waiting which made the time fly by.
Overall I highly recommend this place!!!!!!
This tea room and gift shop is an unexpectedly charming little place in the outdoor mall at the corner of 64th and 120th in Delta. Given that the proprietor has converted flourescent-lit retail space for this purpose it is even more surprising. When you first walk in there is a small gift shop area and a counter containing homemade fudge. Around the corner and further inside are several tables in a seating area that has been decorated in the "shabby chic" style with pastel gingham curtains, an eclectic assortment of chairs and tablecoths and old tables. This shop uses bone china teacups and mismatched silver cutlery, along with an assortment of old fashioned fabric napkins and antique fixtures to help create the mood.
Our friendly hostess seated us promptly and I quickly settled on a rhubarb pecan scone with Devonshire cream and jam . Hubby ordered macaroni and cheese with a green salad, housemade honey poppyseed dressing and a baking powder biscuit. We shared a large pot of Earl Grey Cream tea.
The scone was delectable - not too cakey, not too biscuity, just flavourful and delicious. The Devonshire cream turned out to be whipped cream - understandable when a large scone, cream and jam are $4.50, but I think at least making mock Devonshire cream by whipping in some cream cheese would have
been in order. The jam was homemade and lovely. Hubby's mac and cheese was good but not "great". The salad dressing was fantastic, though. And they sell it there. I will be back for sure to pick some up. He was in raptures, though, over his biscuit. We later found out that the meal was supposed to come with a cloverleaf roll - a bun made of three small balls of bread dough baked in a small tin so they join together. The dough balls are one each of white, multigrain and cheese bread. Sounds nice, but they were out so hubby got the aforementioned delectable biscuit.
We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly for the total amount of $18.90 before tip. I will return with a friend soon to try the afternoon tea I saw being served to other tables. It is $18 per person and includes dainty sandwiches, scones and sweets, along with copious quantities of tea. As a tea snob, I would say the tea is of good quality although not super premium. That is OK at these prices. Nice experience. I noticed reservations are suggested for the afternoon tea meal, and it was busy so this is probably a good idea.
This place has been going down hill for a long time. When it first opened my parents would take me there and we would go back (meaning we loved it). Now I go out with my friends and we went here 2 times and we will never go back. The manager (who is suppose to be the host) was sitting on his butt the hole time we were there as there were line ups out the door. The food, not hot at all, and what a mistake it was to get a chicken burger, it should have just been floating in sauce. For a place that is called a seafood bar you would think that it would pick what it is serving so it would have good food. WRONG! NOt recommended and crossed off my list till at least something is done with the people that work there.
We frequent Alpha quite a bit, and always wake up retaining water...lol....Seriously they need to reduce the sodium in their food! All in all Alpha is pretty consistent and it is what it is......I grew up in T town and their food hasn't changed in 20 years...I think the menus are the same as they were in the 80's. They do however have a newer waiter there who is ON THE BALL! He knows what we drink and is already walking over with it before our bums are in the chairs. Niki should give him a raise :) He does keep us coming back. The food is predictable and we havent had a bad experience yet. Its worth a try!
We love this hidden little gem in Ladner! We go at least 3 times a month for our sushi fix. The owner Hojin (probably not spelled right!) is fabulous, we always buy him a beer or 2 while he prepares his master pieces. The service is excellent....you may need to wait a bit for a table because they are always busy, but it is worth the wait...The tuna is to die for. Give it a try, you wont be disappointed. I hope Hojin doesnt leave Ladner!!
Me and a friend went there the other night and our first impression was pretty good. We had a good waitress but she went downhill throughout the night. We both ordered quisedias and there were not good at all. I thought there were very bland and gross. I don't think i would go back... but if i decide to give it another try i will definately try something else. There are many other good restaurants in ladner.
The Other Half and I went here for a late lunch on Saturday. Although it was sunny, the wind was cold.
This pub is located right on the slough in Ladner. Lots of interesting "views" out the windows. Pub itself is showing a bit of age, but it was clean and tidy.
Ordered a steak sandwich (steak done rare) with fries for me, and the OH ordered a shrimp croissant with caesar salad. We both had pale ale to drink.
The fries were OK, the onion rings were great, but the steak was very, very thin and very, very well-done. The shrimp croissant was pronounced to be very good indeed, even though the caesar salad was average.
The servers were both very friendly and efficient, but the bartender was snarly. Not wanting to leave the money on the table, we took it up to the bar and got barked at to "pay the server, not the bartender". Guess not everyone likes a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Sharkeys IS an institution in Ladner, the first place most locals will think of for casual dining. Likely the best known place to "foreigners" too. The setting is great on a warm evening, although it gets crowded out of the deck. The food IS variable, tending toward heavy, salty and sometimes cold. Here's a tip: go on a weekday, when its quieter, and order from the daily sheet.
This place IS worth the trip. But for we Ladnerites, its a lot more pleasant trip than through the tunnel and over a bridge to better restaurants in Vancouver - if you can find one! Certainly beats White Spots for food quality, ambiance, view (lazy river, circling eagles, passing ships) and service - despit having the same owner!
This place rocks!
The staff are all super freindly, and very accomadating.
Food is exellent. The daily features / specials are unbelievably cheap.
You have to try the "Brad" sauce on the wings or ribs.
Thanks for bringing the Carlos & Buds feel to Ladner.
Went to the restaurant because I’d heard good things and wanted to pick up a menu and check out their Sashimi and Sashimi prices among others. Arrived about 40 minutes before closing, the place was vacant and the waitress was sweeping the dining area. I checked out the menu and decided to try the Assorted Sashimi & Miso soup. Initially it seemed the staff wasn't sure if I would have time to Eat In but they allowed me to sit and I enjoyed some Tea and Miso soup, both of average quality. I waited for a bit and of course as other reviews specified the place was frequented by local teens and take out order pickups, I was the only one dining in, the place was small for dine in and not overly comfy but sufficient. The food came; I was VERY impressed by the presentation. The chef had definitely taken time to prepare the plate and it looked fantastic, I couldn't resist taking a picture. The food did taste good too, although the Tuna Sashimi was still 1/4 frozen, nonetheless I enjoyed 5 pieces of Sockeye Salmon, 4 pieces of Tuna (large), 3 pieces of Red Snapper, 3 pieces of Fatty Tuna, 3 pieces of Octopus, 2 large Prawns, some minced Spicy Tuna, some Chopped Scallop Topped With Flying Fish Roe And A Bit Of Mayo, along with Lettuce for Garnish, some Cucumber, Ginger & Wasabi. It was overall enjoyable and the staff although not overly attentive, were pleasurable and helpful when I asked what the Spicy Tuna was. Total cost was just over $23 and with cash tip $25 so not cheap but a worthwhile experience as the food was very nicely presented and seemed fresh. Would consider going back for more...
This is my second attempt at reviewing this place... I may have been to graphic in my previous post so it was removed. I will be more objective this time...
This is located in Tilbury Indutrial park... Quick food/ready made chinese food... Personally, I think this is the last place in the area one should go if hungry...
The ready made food was almost cold when served, and the signs outside advertise Wonton Soup, however when you order it you get what tastes like pre-made canned beef broth with frozen wonton's that are microwaved... Mine were still frozen in the middle once I got them...
I don't know how you can make fried rice taste bad, but this was the worst tasting fried rice I've ever had...
The ambiance is a convenience store that gives you your food at the till where people buy smokes and lottery tickets. It is obviously aimed to serve the warehouse/factory and manual labouring workers of the area, but frankly, across the street you can get better food and the blue collar workers I know and work with expect better food that fills them up...
My 2 item combo plus small wonton and bottle of water was $10 and change... It wasn't even exactly "cheap" as Subway is about the same...
I hope this review makes it through... I'm not your typical negative reviewer, check my other reviews...
This is the best sushi restaurant in Ladner/Tsawwassen by a long way and better and cheaper than most in Vancouver. The sushi/sashimi is always fresh and made to order and there is usually a wait for a table but never too long. The Lovers Boat and Bridge are two assorted meals you can share. Innovative chefs and if you want to try something different sit at the counter and ask them to make you something they recommend. Please don't all rush out here at once!
If I say too much the waitress will know who I am. That is how often I go.. er.. we.... Their spanakopita, souvlaki, tzatziki, and greek salad are, quite literally, second to none.
I am not joking when I say that I've had all the Greek food in Surrey and yet this place is still the best. Perfectly seasoned, I never have to add salt or pepper. The souvalki is great because they remove the skewer for you, and it's always tender and juicy with that light charring for added numminess. The greek salad is very simple, but always has the freshest vegetables - it doesn't sit around all day so the flavor is fresh, crisp, and light.
I could go on for a very, very long time about the spanakopita, tiropita, etc... but it's really wasting your time. The restaurant has been there forever, so they must be doing SOMETHING right... and you are sitting here reading reviews when you COULD be eating!!!
Just go. Now. Eat.
