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.
We went in with high hopes and left almost 2 hours later with empty stomachs. The hummuss was below average, the calamari was like large rubber bands when I sent it back to the kitchen to try again they reheated the same calamari and brought it back to me.
YUCK!!! The moussaka was barely adequate. It also took them an hour and 20 minutes to bring our food and after the re cooked calamari came out the chef from the back came out and gave me the evil eye.
We left most of the food on the table and finally had to go to the counter to pay the bill, the server apologized but there was no compensation at all for a terrible dining experience.
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've been going to Jim The Greeks for years and I've almost always enjoyed myself, left full, satisfied & recommended them to friends & colleges. It's true that the restaurant never used to appear very busy on any random weeknight but since the renovation, sometime last year, since I've gone it's definitely been busier than before and that's great to see. The usual face one immediately sees when walking tho the door is the hardworking wife Maria. She'll usually greet you immediately if she's not serving at that exact time and seat you where ever your comfortable. The menus and waters are almost there immediately and the table candle is lit without request. I almost always order the Klefico "Roast Lamb" either with or without the Tomato Sauce on top. It's a huge plate and the price $12.95 is unbeatable. Up the road it's $16.95 for almost the same thing; I think Jim's is bigger. The plate comes Greek Salad, Lots of Lamb, Greek Potato, Greek Rice, Pita on the Side with Tzatziki & Lemon Slices. If you'd rather sub a Caesar Salad at no extra cost that is an option instead of the Greek Salad. Jim will usually make an appearance either from the kitchen where he might be cooking or the back room and he'll make a point of coming around to say Hi to anyone dining. So what can I say negative well...because the restaurant isn't always so busy on the weeknights I think the Servers have a high turnover rate due to probably low tipouts and as a result, if it's not Maria serving you, then you might have hit or miss service. The food is almost top notch only thing is some of the sides might show some minor signs of being reheated but usually not and definitely not a reason to miss out. The value is incredible for the price and better than any other Greek restaurant that I know of. The ambiance after the remodel is much nicer and brighter but I personally don't like the new big screen LCD in the main dining area and it's a bittt to open not a real cozy feel unless you're sitting in the booths. All in all tho I think the best Greek restaurant around and definitely something I hope will be around for many more years in the future. Go check it out and say Hi to Maria & Jim.
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. :(
I really like the Pulled Pork Sandwich, its got just enough of their really good homeade BBQ sauce, my wife is a fan of the Chicken Enchilada. I like the specials which seem to change on a weekly basis. We haven't had a bad meal yet. Great service and atmosphere. Dinner rush on a Friday and Saturday is busy. I'm never disappointed.
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
Mike and Anna from Delta
It's like a diner having booths which is relaxing but it's also open and airy and has quite a view. I enjoy the quiet atmosphere to sit back and watch any action on the runways. There's a wide range of menu items and drinks. I have had lots of different items from spaghetti with meat sauce to war wonton soup. All was good. Service is great.
Nothing much to say about this famous place, but only thing is too pricy, food 's fabulous.. service is incredible. I think western food's ok, but international food 's not ok.. they have many kind of food. it's good.
It's like a bar , so sometimes so noisy but it's ok ..
Come back again.
Been lots Thai Restaurant !!!
Kon Thai is quaint, the service is friendly and if you are a fan of Kon Thai, you will not be disappointed. The restaurant serves faithful renditions of Thai cuisine. For an appetizer, I chose Goong Hom Pha, served with a mildly spiced plum sauce, though the other selection, such as Chicken Satay, were equally delightful. The chicken was fresh and tender, and the peanut sauce was quite flavorful.
Aside from the various curries and the signature Tom Ka soup, a spicy coconut broth with chicken.
If you are unfortunate enough to arrive on a particularly busy night, as most weekends usually are, the wait times for the food can stretch to as much as an hour, which is frustrating enough if you are hungry, but if you smell the tantalizing aromas of the dishes on other nearby tables, it is absolutely torturous. But there is a plausible reason for such a wait.
Presentation is also a factor here, as each particular dish has a unique way of being offered that is both practical and enjoyable to the eye.
So if you aren't afraid of a little spice and you find Thai food to your liking, I would expect you will soon add Kon Thai to your roster of restaurants to visit frequently.
Definitely be going back.
