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.
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.
for a treat we go for sushi and when we go we go to Akari. I never had any issues with the service as others have; they are always polite and accomodating to any special requests. The dynamite roll is truly dynamite, yummy california rolls too.I do find it pricey here, but there are really no other choices in Delta, so there you go. The decor is due for refreshing/updating so I only rated the ambiance as mediocre, but it is a small and cosy place otherwise.
Service is terrible:
Words cannot even begin to describe how bad the service is. The staff avoid any eye contact with you, we waited over 30mins before we were even acknowledged at the door.
Once the waitress takes your order, she disappears in the back. Good luck getting more tea from the tea master with the pigtails.
Be sure to make a reservation.
Went for lunch with my wife a few days ago and OMG, i have never had fish ' n chips like this before. Wait before i get into that . The restaurant has a great location in front of a river I can assume. The ambiance, decore whatever you may call it was as expected for place like this . It wasnt cheezy but was well suited for this style of restaruant . The server was nice, and polite. Had the clam bites as an appy , and they were good, something different. As for those fish 'n chips there were great. The fish they used was tender and not flaky . The batter was not overwhellming and an over great taste. The size of the portion was not too shabby either. So i give you Sharkeys 2 thumbs up on your Fish 'n chips.
Loud loud loud. The volume on the TVs are set way too high. Impossible to converse. Lone waitress left to handle about 30 customers by herself did a admirable job. Food was good for a pub. I had the halibut and chips $12.99 and found the fish soggy. Lots of TVs on all the walls. Why do side by side TVs have the same programs on when there is more than 1 sporting event on? Restroom okay. Lots of parking.
Apollo Pizza used to be the North Delta favourite but it has badly slipped over the past several years. The last several times I have ordered, the pizzas have become increasingly bland and greasy. Not sure why, perhaps times are tough and they have gone to cheaper ingredients. To illustrate their frugality, they have taken to not putting the wax paper between your pizza and the delivery box. This results in your pizza being 'stuck' to the cardboard box which quickly turns into a tacky mess. If not removed immediately your pizza takes on a cardboard taste. I have brought this to their attention but same old thing next time I ordered.
I guess we will have to find another alternative.
Seated fast, no wait time. Waitress was happy to serve you, topped up water/tea frequently, Mandarin speaking staff. No complaints for this part of the Fraser. Food was as expected from a dim sum place. Not a fancy place, but acceptable to meet family and friends for lunch. Clean washroom. Happy to have found the place, was recommended by friends. I will definately be back for more. It saves me the drive into Richmond/Vancouver. Plenty of parking, easily accessible to Nordel & 88th.
I come here quite often, as it is close to where I live. I am always impressed with the menu, the service and the atmosphere. But I am always amazed at the bill at the end of the night. The food is absolutely killer, but I have to seriously reconsider coming here so often because of you have a few drinks the bill can go crazy in a heartbeat! Last time I was with a couple girlfriends and we had appies, and drinks....in the lounge...and my single bill was $85, and I wasn't even drunk! Now that's a $200 night if I go with my hubby! WAY too much!
The food in this place is excellent! One of the few Indian restaurants I have found in the lower mainland that will make my meal "extra spicy" since I am not Indo-Canadian! Usually I get served a "sort of" spicy dish when I ask for "hot", but not here! They always ramp up the heat for me when I ask and I love it!
Service, unfortunately, is a lost cause. They just don't seem to really want people to dine in - takeout is a booming business for them and the dine in crowd seems to be a nuisance for them. Servers are slow, you have to ask for most things twice before you get them, and you often have to get up and walk to the kitchen to find them since they spend no time out on the floor!
The decor is not great, and the tv on the wall usually has someone's wedding reception video running. Not exactly entertainment.
Do yourself a favour and call them to order takeout. you will love the food! Just don't put yourself through the agony of dealing with the poor service for dine in meals.
Was always pleased with the food & service when Nikos owned the place. Since he sold it, both have been hit & miss, at best. On our last visit (yes, it will be the LAST time we ever eat here) it hit an alltime low.
Visited on a Thursday evening and arrived at 5:30. Restaurant was not busy, but still had to stand in front hallway for almost 10 minutes before we were acknowledged. It then took another 5 minutes for someone to come over and seat us - despite all the empty tables that were available!
We were taken to the little raised area to the side of the bar and squeezed into a tiny corner behind four very large folks occupying the adjacent table. They couldn't/wouldn't move their chairs in towards their own table so we had to be acrobats to get into our seats - why, when so many other tables were available was this where we had to be seated? Also, there was a strong smell of bathroom deodorizer in the area. not very appetizing!
Our drink order was taken and arrived promptly. Unfortunately, my wineglass came with a large smear of red lipstick on the rim. Server was unfazed when I pointed this out to her - she seemed to wonder why I wouldn't drink from a dirty glass! I suspect she took my wine glass back and just wiped the lipstick off because the new glass was smudgy around the edges. Yuck!
We ordered Souvlaki - hubby had beef, I had chicken. Beef was gristly, chewy, and overdone - not a pleasant experience at all. Chicken was so dry it was like eating sawdust. Rice was cold and clumpy. Potato was only partly cooked - still hard in the center. Greek salad was mostly soggy, as if it had been sitting for a day or so before being served. Waitress did not come back to ask how our food was after serving it- she probably couldn't be bothered trying to manouver by that table of large folks either!
When she finally picked up our barely eaten dinners, she didn't even ask if we had a problem with the food. We had to inform her that the meal was almost inedible. She said sorry, and left with our plates. She came back a few minutes later with the free dessert and was quick to let us know that she put a little extra on the plate because of the problem with dinner! The extra teaspoonful did not make up for both of us still being hungry!
Nikos would have come out personally to check and see if we liked our meal. If there had been a problem, he would have made sure it was fixed. Here, no one seemed to care. We couldn't eat the lousy meal and we were billed for it with no discount for the inedible food.
That's it - we won't be back unless the restaurant gets different owners & management who actually care about the customers and have a clue about what good food is.
I'd give this place a D- if I had to grade it!
Went here for high tea.
Firstly, the ambiance is wonderful. It has a "grandma's house" appeal. One can borrow old fashioned hats and kid gloves to wear if one want to get very kitchy (which I do...). Even the bathroom is cute.
I ordered the high tea for twenty something dollars (I can't remember the exact amount). I shared it with my three year old daughter (who was decked out in frilly hat and gloves).
The tea itself was delicious.
The food was also good and all made in house.
The service, though friendly, was a little slow. The food was served in separate courses instead of all on a three tier tray. I thought the courses looked sparse when presented this way. Also, the time between courses (savory items, scones and sweets) was long. The items would have been pre-made (although made on premise) and it shouldn't have taken over 20 minutes between courses of sandwiches, scones and little cakes.
Other than that quibble- the place was nice and I would return (but if ordering the high tea - I would ask that all my courses be served at the same time).
BTW - it was nice that I could split the order with my daughter. I had been to another high tea where I was charged extra for my child to drink out of my teapot. This establishment does not do silly things like that so I gave it three stars for value.
My husband and I recently started frequenting the Primerose restaurant in Delta and found it to be a great treasure that we have been missing the past 15 years sunce living in Ladner.
The service by our favorite server Tanya, is the best we have experienced at some of the best restaurants in Vancouver, and the food is superb. Each time we have ordered something different and never been disappointed.
we would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone living in Tsawassen, Ladner or North Delta.
This location used to be a dumpy chinese restaurant. Now with blacked out windows, we were curious. We walked into a beautiful Japanese restaurant welcomed by a smiling little lady and a 'greeting' yelled out by a man behind the sushi counter.
We ordered a combo roll C which consists of three rolls, california, dynamite and chicken teriyaki roll. It comes with miso soup. We changed the chicken to beef. For myself, I got a cali cone and a cooked salmon roll. They dont have it on the menu but they will make it for you!
Absolutely amazing. The presentation of the rolls was beautiful. It was like food art! They cut designs of animals out of lemons and carrots and radishes. The Chicken Karrage is good there too. The sashimi is so fresh, and the sunomono salad is zippy, the plump shrimp is to die for.
Keep in mind, that they do charge for green tea. :(
This restaurant is in the middle of an Industrial Area, it is a very nice surprise to find somewhere new in the Queensborough/Annacis/Delta area.
The food is fantastic, service is fast, and it has a nice decor. (There is even an outdoor smoking area for smokers.)
If you are ever stuck in traffic by the Aleks Fraser Bridge I would recommend taking the Annacis exit and popping in for a drink and appy.
The banquet hall is huge and beautiful for all types of events and the catering is exceptional.
This is a good place to book a party as no one is around to complain about noise.
Oh and did I mention that the prices are the lowest around for food and beverages.......
We have to say that everytime we have been here for dinner its been incredible. The food is amazing as well as the service. But the thing that stood out to us, has to be the ambience of this resturant. Its quiet and romantic, just what we have been looking for. Steve, Maria and there son Chris are so welcoming and warm. The service is amazing, they know there wines and are very sharing, to tell you where to find a bottle of your favorite wine if you would like to serv it at a dinner party that you are hosting at home. I am hosting my partner's Birthday party there and we are very excited to see what the outcome will be. Perfect I am sure. This is now are new Romantic Hideway
Thank you Steve and Maria for the Primerose Bar & Grill
