I totally agree with the previous submission. Been here twice and never again.
Staff are incompetent, do not care about diners, service is the worst, and the whole set up is
a mess. Either this place needs a new owner or even better change into something decent eatery.
I hope the Boston Owner in Dragon's Den reads these reviews.
There are only a large handful of places to eat in Ladner and Tsawwassen. Tonight I was craving thai and the bf did not want to drive into Richmond. I said lets try Kon Thai, he was not going for it, but I told him, Im ordering, if you want something. He finally caved in.
We ordered the exact same dishes that we always do, Pad Se Ew and Sweet and sour chicken, side of rice and this time I wanted the spring rolls.
When I called, I made sure she knew that last time, we only got a tiny bit of chicken, in our sweet and sour chicken. I said please make sure there is chicken in there. I repeated it three times. She said okay, okay.
When we went to pick it up, I told my bf to make sure he opens the containers of food to check, he got distracted by the lady giving a free dessert.
When we got home, there was no rice, even though it was on the bill, the Pad Se Ew was soo greasy and the sweet and sour chicken sauce was weirdly seperating. He was pissed. We werent going to call back as last time we called back, it was a waste of time.
We ate it anyway but it was a mouthful of grease. Guess what I found in my food, a black hair! I was disgusted. I then decided to eat the spring rolls instead, what is going on? Another hair.
We will NEVER eat here again. Maybe the cooks should wear hairnets and be more aware of packing. As for the free dessert, it was horrible. Probably left overs from their buffet.
I've been going to Maguro for years. The food has always been delicious, plentiful, and consistent. The waitresses on the other hand are the rudest, most disrespectful, and snobish I have ever encountered. They are not pleasant, no hello's or how are you? They get you seated, stand at your table not saying a word until you acknowledge them, and then say order now? Straight faced, no warmth, like you're a bother to them. The food always comes fast though. When it comes they drop it on the table walk away and never ask you how your meal is. If you need something, good luck to you. You might be able to quickly say your request as one of them walks by and hope they heard you, because they will not stop to acknowledge that you're trying to speak to them. So it's a 50/50 chance you'll end up with what you ask. Probably the rudest thing I always encounter there is when you're getting close to being done your meal, someone will come over and start grabbing at your food and while they are taking it away will ask you if you are done? If you are not they will put it back down without saying sorry and walk away. But if they get it right and you are finished they plop down the bill as soon as you say your done, will have a debit machine also on the table, and expect you to pay as you're still chewing your food. If you want to sit and enjoy the company your with, well think again. Once the bill is paid they grab a rag and start cleaning the table with you still in it and will mumble, Okay bye now, rushing you out. The food is good yes, but the wait staff act as if they don't need your business. Like they're doing you a huge favour by you choosing to eat at their establishment. Their attitudes really make me think twice if I want to come and eat there, because they make everyone I'm with and I feel really unwelcome.
Holy smokes, those were the first words out of my mouth when i saw the beer selection this restaurant had. Came out to Lander with my wife for a drive and decided to go Sharkeys, mind you we had a coupon. We went for lunch, service was prompt ,aumbiance was cool reminded me of being back home in Nova Scotia (Just couldnt put my finger on it) My wife and I order the Fish n Chips I had the Phillips Blue Buck Pale Ale and my wife had a ceaser. Everything was great . I was just surprised to see a restaruant like this with a Microbrew selection. Not to say much more, if your in Ladner and craving a unique beer u got to check out Sharkeys.
Alway greeted by friendly staff, the service is great and such friendly people. The Manager is alwasy running around making sure everyone is happy and taken care of, makes you feel special.
The food is fantastic and if there is ever a problem you just have to say something and it is immediately fixed. The customers really come first in this place. I can't say enough good things.
Thank you for your great customer service!!!!

We had 2 big tables with a total of 20 ppl. Lots of drinks. Good Times. Service was great!
I have lunch twice a week at Twin Bridges, and sometimes our company orders catering from them for meetings
The menu is updated every week , and the variety is huge.This is the place to get high quality food on a reasonable price. This week I had the CURRY Puffs. I must say that this is one of the most delicious things I have ever tried. I love the lamb & rice and the veggie wraps.
Definitely recommend it for lunch, take away or catering. We sometimes call them and order the food in advance , so when we get there we don't have to wait.
Great Food, Great Staff and the Owner.
It is a good place to eat, and to meet local Ladner people, or come with friends and family,
Using it for regular business gatherings.
We wish that they open for breakfast.
The Owners know most people in Ladner, and most of them know the Owners.
Interesting menu, for both dinner and take out.
Pizzas are the top on the list.
Good selection of wines.
A well run business, and good to know it if you like to have a business in Ladner and Tsawwassen.
See you there - Ladner & Tsawwassen Meetup Group.
It's really hard to find good quality Japanese restaurants in the lower mainland. My experience at Akari Japanese restaurant was outstanding. I've been to Akari several times with my family and friends this year. I am very picky with Japanese food and the quality really really matters to me. I love all kinds of Japanese food but fresh sashimi is my favourite at all times. Akari had very fresh, chewy, and yummy sashimi. We ordered sashimi salad and grilled black cod with vegetables for appetizers, and some of the special rolls. The food was fresh, very tasty and the decoration was beautiful! Some of the special rolls can be a bit pricy but they are so worth it. I really enjoyed their rolls. They offer many different kinds of rolls and all are very very unique. You can choose either white rice or black rice. I personally really liked the ones with black rice. They looked yummy, tasted incredible, fresh, satisfying and very filling. The service was great too! Thinking of Akari's food makes me want to eat there again right now lol. I highly recommend Akari Japanese restaurant to anyone who love Japanese cousin! :)
Stopped here for lunch: this is a very old school seafood waterfront restaurant that seems to be a through back to an earlier time. Had the cod fins and chips; interesting that they use a breaded batter, that makes the fish crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Overall a very good meal.
We were there for lunch and ordered beef brisket rice noodle soup and a few dim sum dishes. It is the
worst that I have ever tasted. Food is to be enjoyed. I found it a torture to eat it, never mind paying $25
for it. You will never get me to go back.
My wife and I have just moved to the area and were looking for a Greek restaurant. After driving by the restaurant we decided to finally try it out last night. It was probably the best Greek food that we have ever eaten. The food was outstanding and the service was exceptional! We had the kalamari and saganaki as appetizers. The kalamari arrived sizzling hot and crispy and the saganaki was to die for. I ordered the roast lamb which was so tender that it fell off the bone and my wife ordered the chicken souvlaki special. The chicken souvlaki special was only $12.95. Both meals came with rice, potato, salad, tzatziki. The portions were huge!! We both had leftovers! Good food and good service! We will be back!
Normally I'm not inclined to go to such lengths to vent about my experience however I frequently dine out as I travel for work and I must say, the Landing Pub should be avoided at all costs. I was greeted as I sat down for lunch and was looking over the menu and was offered a beverage promptly. The waitress said she'd be right back as her owner was in the restaurant and she had to get his lunch. I then witnessed "the owner" who looked to be a bit on the heavier side sit down at a table, sloppily power through his lunch, ask the waitress for numerous refills, then get up and leave his mess at the table and exit the building without leaving her a tip for her efforts. In my experience I've never seen an owner treat an employee with such disrespect and demand so much of her time. From there the food was decent although the menu selection catered to those people who enjoy a non-healthy lifestyle, deep fried and greasy items, not a lot of selection. The waitress and service was well above average and I commend her for having to deal with the owner who seemed quite disrespectful (can he not pick up and clear his own plate and leave a few bucks as I assume he's eating for free). I left a generous tip to cover not only my meal but the owners as well. Personally as a business owner, I won't support a place where ownership treats its staff with such disrespect.
We have eaten here often and also taken out orders.. The fish and chips are the best the halibat and cod is a good thick piece of fish with a light batter and not greasy and the fries are always a nice size and very good.The prices are reasonable and service friendly and fast.
We have tried many fish and chip places and have found Ocean Avenue the best.
After learning that the Surrey location of Boston Pizza was closed due to renovations, we decided to drive to the Boston Pizza in Delta. We had never been to this location before, but I assure you that we'll never go again.
While the restaurant was empty, minus a few couples watching hockey, it took us almost 10 minutes to be seated. We were originally greeted by a hostess, who asked us to wait while she tracked down another hostess because she the first hostess was about to leave. They justified this by saying that we were a large group (8 of us in total) and they had to make sure there was a big enough table.
After getting a table, a young waitress came to get our drink orders. She quickly brought them to our table, but then disappeared for almost 20 minutes before coming back to take our appetiser and meal orders. We ordered the twist bread as a full order, but was only brought a single order from the waitress. The ones we were brought contained raw dough and almost no seasoning. We hoped the meal would make up for this, but we were sorely mistaken.
Almost 20 minutes after our appetisers arrived, our food began to trickle in. And by trickle, I really mean trickle. Plates were brought to us in groups of 2- meaning, only two of us were given their food at one time. There was almost a 5 minute wait in between our meals. Then, once the waitress told us all the dishes were served and left to help another table, we noticed that she had missed a plate. It took us 10 minutes to flag her down and tell her about the missing pizza. She went to check, and came back to tell us that the 'card was lost in translation.' When the pizza was finally brought, it was so burnt that we couldn't tell what toppings were on the pizza. We sent it back, only to receive another pizza that was undercooked.
Between all of this, the three waitresses on the floor avoided our table like the plague. No one came to ask if we wanted refills, nor to take the plates away or box the leftovers to take home. At that point, we were ready to leave.
When we saw that they had charged us for both pizzas that were made, we didn't leave a tip. As we gave her the money, she asked us rudely why she wasn't getting a tip, and that 'we didn't know what she was going through.' We left without a word after that.
My suggestion? Avoid the Delta Boston Pizza and go to the one in Surrey. The staff are much more polite, friendly and overall seem to know what they're doing. All I know is that we will never be back.
I live basically ten minutes from this Whitespot location but prefer to drive to other Whitespots for better service and food preparation.
Been to this location several time and always been disappointed. Even the simple fish & chips dish is a disaster.
Decor is old and depressing. Set up of the restaurant is outdated.
Arrived at 6:30pm, waitress took order at 6:45pm, I asked for the location of our drinks at 7pm, food arrived in stages starting at 7:15pm. I finished eating before my daughter got hers, and her order was a simple box. Food was OK, prices are quite expensive in comparison to most other sushi joints, service is absolutely horrible. We have been here maybe three times in the past year and have found the service to be bad, this last experience was the last straw. If you look around and watch the waitresses, confusion is their specialty. We watched two other tables just give up and leave. This was a Thursday night and it was maybe three-quarters full and numerous waitresses were working. They had better streamline this act or that space they occupy will become a dollar store by next year. My sushi dollar will be spent elsewhere though.
I am in shock that no one has reviewed this bakery. It's been around for at least two years. It's my go to spot to pick up dessert. The cookies are delicious, I am fond of the lemon frosted sugar cookies. Cakes by the slice include passion fruit white chocolate slice. Cupcake flavours change daily. I recommend the chocolate pie if you need a dessert for a gathering, a small sliver will satisfy the chocolate cravings. AND she sells macaroons! Well worth the trip for good quality treats at a fairly reasonable price. Highly recommended.
Came here this past August with a friend of mine after coming back from Point Roberts to fill up on gas and do some grocery shopping.
Upon entering we liked the decor of the Ambiance....We were seated immediatly, as it was early to mid afternoon and there were only a few patrons in the restuarant.
Anyhow, I had ordered a chicken strip appetizer and a cheeseburger meal, and my friend had ordered the pancake breakfast meal. Our food didn't take too long to come. I like the texture of the burger and everything tasted good. It was a little expensive, but I guess that's ok.
I think we'll come back again
Let me start by saying WOW!! That was my first impression when walking through the doors of Akari. They did a nice job of décor inside and your always greeted with (what I think is a friendly “hello” in Japanese). I have been going to Akari for many years now, because I am simply addicted to the amazing flavours of their UNIQUE sushi. I have eaten in most every sushi restaurant in Surrey and Delta and numerous ones in Vancouver. That said, Akari by a land slide is my favourite! These guys make sushi rolls such as the Kamikaze roll and the Hot Night roll which you can’t find done in that style anywhere else. I've been told its all in the special sauces and fresh fish that the Head chef at Akari guards under lock and key. I'm not sure what's in some of these decadent sauces, but to say it they are intoxicatingly addictive would be an understatement. They have a lunch special which includes one of these specialty rolls I have mentioned, a choice of Chicken Kuskiage (my favourite), Agedashi Tofu, Gyoza, Tempura, and a few other choices. It also includes miso soup and salad for only 12.95 and it goes right up until 3pm! .. sorry if I sound excited while writing this, but Im getting hungry just thinking about it. The service is prompt and friendly and everything seems to come out in a timely fashion. The service was outstanding and when I asked about menu items they all have good recommendations and never stop smiling. The only thing I would recommend Akari to change is their washrooms; they are dated and seem out of place. Why do such a good job renovating the entire restaurant and choose it ignore the washrooms? Anyway, aside from this small flaw, I must urge you try the Akari Experience! Its amazing and I HIGHLY recommend this sushi restaurant.
