People need to start learning what to order at Stanley's Restaurant. I will agree with previous reviews that their pho broth is not the most phenomenal. However, credit and respect will be given to where it is due and that is their Lemongrass Chicken on Rice! This delicious dish needs to be recognized for its pure excellence in taste, texture, and portions. The chicken is the moistest and most flavorful of all the LGC on R that I have ever tasted. Nay, the chicken is the moistest and most flavorful of all time! The veggies on the side are fresh and the fish sauce just compliments the chicken perfectly. If you had to choose a last meal to eat on Earth, Stanley's Lemongrass Chicken will not disappoint you. Guaranteed.
I tried their chili chicken with rice. The chili chicken was quite mild and had any spices that you would normally expect from an Indian-Chinese fusion restaurant. The rice was also not included with the chili chicken and seemed to have been microwaved right before being served. Other ppl on the thread have given it better reviews and I will give their other dishes a try before I make any conclusions.
I have been here a couple of times and they have some really traditional Punjabi snacks and sweets.
I tried their Chana Bhatura and they were really good. One order of Chana Bhatura comes with the masala chickpeas and two fried bread for only 5 bucks. The masala chickpeas are usually not sufficient but you can get more for no additional cost.
They also have a huge selection of sweets and other snacks that I haven't tried yet. The service is reasonable but it can get a bit too busy sometimes.
Love love love going there for tea!!! With their colored sugar and fancy little cups and outstanding selection of teas (all full leaf! ), you are bound to find a favorite. My sister and I simply adore the Londonderry Black tea and we get it every time! Its so yummy and it does quite a good job at waking you up. We also always get the fruity scones with the homemade jam and creme fraiche. What a perfect afternoon treat! They never disappoint.
I tend to stick to what I love like the black teas and scones but they have a great selection of green and herbal teas as well as many pastries, pies and cakes! But the best part is their fudges, and I do try to stay away cuz they are simply devilishly sublime! They always come out with new flavors like rootbeer and coconut and they also have the classics.
Give this little tea room a try! It's a nice place to catch up with friends.
It's TEA TIME! :)
A group of six of us went for dinner and had a truly wonderful evening. We sat in the middle of the action and saw the wonderful flurry of activity that are the waitresses. The atmosphere was lively without being intrusive and the service was first rate. Our waitress was attentive, cute and very accommodating. The food (between the six of us we had a pretty good mix of sea-foods and meat dishes) was perfectly prepared, as per our requests, was hot and attractively presented. The wine list is extensive and you should have no problem finding something that will suit your palate. The pretty waitress had a good handle on it. We had a couple of bottles of the house red which I think was a Sumac Ridge blend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Boy they need more of these. These ladies in their short dresses are just the perfect nightcap.
A couple of people in our party had always wanted to try this restaurant and they were not disappointed.
This is some of the best Thai food in the entire lower mainland. The ambiance is fresh and lively, love the use of orange. The food is always freshly made and very authentic. My favorite things are the spring rolls, chili chicken and the broccoli/tofu dish. We eat here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. We recently dined here on Thai new year and had a blast! The special buffet was great and the blessing for the new year was really fun.
Service is always great with personal friendly attention and fun interaction through out the meal
I've eaten at Browns a few times, mostly the location in Port Moody. We stopped by this location on our way out to the ferry looking for some breakfast but unfortunately they only serve brunch on weekends. Instead we ordered some pizzas including the margherita, cheese royale and the mushroom with goat cheese. They were all some of the better pizzas I've had. The service was prompt as we were in a hurry to drop someone off at the ferry. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I would return.
Just want to give everyone the heads up after an episode I had at the Delta location last night. I decided I wanted Take Out and I wanted a GOOD burger. Decided to pick up from the Cactus Club and get a Cajun Chicken Sandwich for myself and Chicken Strips for my girl. Total was 30 bucks ~ which in my opinion is quite a bit. So at the end of the ordering process she asks me if I would like a bag for 75 cents plus tax and I say No Thanks. What I dont realize at the time is that they will not give you a bag for your leftovers OR take out anymore. You have to pay for it! She states that its because they are now going with an environmentally friendly option. What she doesnt realize is that the old brown paper bags WERE environmentally friendly and FREE! So now, after paying through the nose for your food, you cant take any to go without purchasing a bag to walk out with. I go in to pick up my takeout and it is all stacked on top of each other for me to juggle out the door. If Cactus Club was giving a portion of this .75 back to the environment or even a worthy cause like JAPAN.... No problem. I am all for it HOWEVER.... I will not line the pockets of this company with one more dollar! CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP is all I can say. This company should be embarrased to say the least. Whats next? Paying per packet of ketchup or for napkins? The employee that I spoke to in Customer Relations stated "We are trying to promote people to bring their own bags!" WTF! Can you see it now..... Honey, Im just putting on my heals and Im ready to head out the door for a gorgeous dinner at the Cactus Club! Oh wait.... make sure you grab a bag so I have something to carry my leftovers out with. BIZARRE! The business world and society in general has been making me shake my head lately. Anyways, thanks for letting me rant. It was a real disapointment.
I along with a lot of my friends are regulars at this sushi restaurant. It used to be the best spot in town.
The food was always fresh, atmosphere lively, service left a bit to be desired but we put up with it because the food was so good.
The last 3 times I have been there starting 2011 have been a big dissapointments. The ownership has changed and it shows, the food just isn't the same.
It is unfortunate that this gem has slipped so much, we used to eat there at least once a week.
I may try one more time but now I am looking at other alternatives for sushi in Ladner.
There are some other places which are eager to please and serve the dissapointed clientele from Maguro Sushi.
I've visited lots of BC sushi joints and this one definitely scores high marks across the factors of food, service and atmosphere. It's a smart looking place and the food matches that standard too - sashimi was top notch fresh, stir fried noodles were perfect, roll was perfect. There's special attention goes into the presentation too - the extra touch counts for a lot...
Chef even gave the diners a free salmon dish each. Easy going ambience and friendly attentive staff. We will return.
Well it seems there is a common thread going with people that visit this place. I ended up here after visiting the bird sanctuary, tail end of lunch rush on the weekend. Service was okay, but didn't receive napkins with the chowder we started with. The soup itself was good. Entrees were decent as well, really enjoyed the panko breading on the halibut. Enjoyed the decor, really old school nautical bar feel. If in the area I'd stop in again, but wouldn't go out of my way to come.
I don't come here too often but once in a while when business brings me down there it is good to know that there is a place I can put the expense account to use. An adult restaurant, no kids, good eye candy and here (not downtown!).
Browns is an excellent modern Canadian restaurant.The room is big and beautifully decorated. I have chosen from both the menu and waitresses recommendation. Both are outstanding. The manager and his hiring practices have ensured a great looking crew in very cute little skirts. Service is quite formal, which some may find intimidating coupled with the good looks. However, the staff do a great job of anticipating your needs. The music and lounge style is a great way to complement a meal.
Let's face it they are leggy and have put in an effort so as a patron I acknowledge it and tip straight 20%. The meal and a drink usually come to no more than $30 though.
I don't have much experience with Indian restaurants, but was convinced to give this place a try. I went during the dinner hour so it was busy, but not bad. I had curried lamb, naan and rice. It was all really good! The naan is awesome, fresh baked I believe. The curried lamb was really really nice too. Rice was average. The service was nice. The girls all spoke decent English and were pretty much friendly. The one downer about this place is it's overpriced. The curried lamb dish was $11 on it's own without anything else. It wasn't big, just average. If the price was a bit cheaper I'd say this place is one of the best in Surrey. I'll go back for sure to try another dish.
while i've never dined in, i typically go for the take out and there are no complaints, other than the price i think is a bit high. consistency is good and the chili chicken is the best dish.
also the chicken tikka masala isn't what i'm used to... no vegi's what so ever and they refused to add any when i asked. instead they recommended some other dish that was horrible and i couldn finish due to the salt content.
If you're looking for a good night out that includes decent service, forget this place. And if you have kids, don't bring them to this kid-unfriendly restaurant. Our server barely understood English and didn't acknowledge my well-behaved, polite seven-year-old son who loves Japanese food. The sushi was OK, as was the soba noodle soup but I was too turned off by the pathetic service to care much about the food. If I go back, it will be for takeout and only because there are very few restaurants in Ladner.
We have been going to this restaurant since it opened for both the mussels and the value of a shared meal . the mussels are done in a spicy wine sauce and if you like a little spice you can not resist picking up the spoon enjoying the broth with pita .The mussels , a large lamb souvlaki meal with a 1/2 liter of wine for less than $45.00 is a true bargain ,. Combine this with a friendly attentive service and a casual atmosphere and it always enjoyable .
I have been going to the Best Garden for years, It has been around for as long as I can remeber. The food is always consistant, hot and tasty.
I have never been disappointed, It is what I would call Canadian Chinese food, nothing too exotic. Just a very good restaurant.
Take out is good as well,
Price point, is equal to what you would pay at the local subway, but the food is prepared fresh, with generous portions, and thier smorgesboard nights have a loyal clientile. Well worth the trip to Tsawwassen.
It is not going to win any design contest for Decor, but in my book it is a solid choice for a good Chinese food at a reasonable price.
I would recommend it to anyone.
I like Cactus Club they do a good job with food, they usually serve nice drinks and of course I love the ladies working here. I always hink a good job is being a hiring manager there.
Yet, we found out that Cactus Club in Delta (presumably a suburb) is not the same as one downtown. Or perhaps Socialhouse and Earls are taking over the cool scene. Not sure.
So, the food was good, the steak well done, the martini mark up not atrocious and the service polite, but was it very sexy (still probably sexier than any other place around here), hip or edgy? No, that is not here and I tell you I think they charge the price of downtown.
I have eaten alot of Chinese food in my life and Yummy Wonton is not a place I will ever try again.
I love egg foo yung and have not been able to find a place that can serve a decent dish of this since Ho In in China town closed 25 or so years ago.Yummy's was flavourless and was mostly bean sprouts. The chow mein tasted the same as the egg foo young. The beef tomato rice had no flavour either. The dry garlic pork had no taste - not even of garlic. The almond chicken was abit pink and rather greasy - but again - no flavour. It was a huge disappointment!
I mean I get the consistency and stuff but why is this place popular? Me and a gf came her a few days ago after work out of desperation for grub. I havent been for years (literally, I can remember the last time I ate there), and was REALLY hoping I'd like my 20 dollar meal. Anyways, I don't eat red meat or pork anymore due to dietary problems, and nothing seemed interesting that didn't have it. I was starving so I settled on some duck sandwich without the pancetta, with fries because well I was hungry eff salad. I ordered a cool martini with pepper in it, it was good, but wouldn't want a second because it tasted way too weak to be 2 ounces (for 10 bucks at that) and it was just a pinch too lemony (and I eat lemons so that's saying something). Oh right, our server forgot our drinks at the bar for a good 5 minutes, my friend got a blended drink so I asked the bartender if I could grab it for our table (it was dead, it was definately ours). Server didn't mention it at all. She didn't seem too interested in conversation, and unlike alot of cactus clubs, kinda hurt my eyes (I'm not that shallow, but I do like to have a decent looking person serving me, guy or girl). She wasn't slutty dressed either which was surprising. Very strange. Anyways the food. Not bad, not stupendous, I've had alot better for alot less. Fries were gross, from a bag, could bake them better. Sandwich was decent, kinda fell apart. But like I said, wasn't impressed with the menu since I have dietary restrictions, and was way too hungry for a salad. Server didn't ask us if we wanted dessert, even though I was considering doing some to go.
CC, I want to like you I do. But for 30 bucks for a drink and a DECENT meal, and not even close to worth it service..... well you will always be hovering around desperate, like the other day. Will keep going to my random gems that aren't chains.
