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.
So I had lunch at Stanley Restaurant today with a friend who says this is his regular spot for Pho. Walking in I was very impressed with the layout of the restaurant, it was clean, looked very nice and was probably the best looking Pho place I have seen in a long time. The place filled up rather quickly with people form all walks of life. The service was good, as with any Pho place you have to ask for exactly what you want. We ordered the Salad Roll my friend had House special and I had the Rare Steak and Flank Pho. The Salad Roll and peanut sauce was well executed and refreshing. The Pho came with generous amount of good quality meat, the noodles were cooked perfectly, the broth does not come spicy from the kitchen you have to add your own chili oil, and it was lacking in flavor. I added the lime, chili oil and sriracha sauce but it still seemed as though something was missing. I may go back to try the rice dishes but I will not be calling this my regular Pho spot.
We went there for a quiet romantic evening, at first glance it looked like we hit the jackpot, the restaurant was nice with a relaxed atmosphere a classy touch.
Once we sat down to order everything changed - the service was poor resulting with us having to wait for our main course for over an hour because of a kitchen confusion (at least this is what we were told).
The real disappointment was when the food finally arrived, mediocre taste and small portions compared to price asked. we left the restaurant hungry as we came which led us to stop at the closest Cactus Cafe to complete our dinner.
This restaurant is a waste of time and money - avoid it.
I tried this place once. The food was pretty good, the location is not bad either. I ordered sushi . I was served maybe 20 minutes after I ordered, which isn't too bad. The pricing is about average for japanese restaurants, and the menu selection is pretty good. I really wouldn't mind coming back to this place.
Great place to have Japanese. You wouldn't expect such a small place in Tsawwassen to beat fancy restaurants in Vancouver but this place does it. Everything on the menu is delicious! The sushi is fresh, the rice bowls are good and the tofu is to die for.
A must visit!
On the very last day of the Ladner Market - a rainy day, too, - we scouted out this fine restaurant for a special occasion meal. We were not sorry.
Unfortunates first: I was disappointed in the appetizer I ordered, which was the scallops wrapped in bacon dish. The best part was the bacon; however, it was the scallops I had looked forward to enjoying. They were mushy and very fishy. As well, the dessert I ordered was disappointing. It did not seem to have been freshly made, and although the presentation was pretty with its drizzled chocolate and cinnamon, since I did not want chocolate (unbelievable, I know!) it robbed the custard of its subtleness if there was any to be found. My dining partners wisely chose the cheesecake, which they enjoyed.
The fortunate: All that having been written, the entrees were very good – and after all, that is what we traveled here to enjoy! The roast lamb dinners were ample and delicious by report. My dish, the Korinthos Chicken was scrumptious and ample enough that I carried some home to later enjoy. The chicken was moist and tasty - and light enough. I would order it again. The rice was nicely flavored – moist and interesting. The potato, too, was moist and pleasant with its lemon and other seasonings that came through well. Those accompaniments along with the Greek salad and our bright, cheerful wait person, added up to a really nice meal in a pleasant venue on a chilly late afternoon. We will return.
I have been going here for many years & have introduced many people to the restaurant. I''m sure i've been there well over 100 times & find it consistantly great! Also my friends feel the same way too & we eat out a lot!! AS for the service - we always find it great & when we take Mom they always remember to give her a fork (without asking!!) We just had some take out from ther - Yum!!
This Cactus Club has heaps of parking and is easily accessed from Scott Road. Generally their menu items are on the more expensive side, their alcohol pricing particularly so, although they have different items on special on different days of the week. Service we have had has been good, and the servers are characteristically attractive and try hard. Portions - especially steak portions - seem to be fairly small although I wouldn't describe myself as a big eater. Recommend the Szechuan beans highly.
Good but not great Greek food. Plenty of parking around the side and back of the restaurant, and often no reservations needed, simply drop in. Always had their lamb, and never been disappointed. Service varies depending upon how busy the restaurant is, however never had a rude server. Overall a pleasant dining experience.
This new greek restaurant that opened three years ago is fantastic. Great food and presentation. Good quality to detail. This is the best place to have pizza. Best pizza i have had in years. The atmosphere is amazing and the service is great. They also have amazing greek food such as moussaka, spanakopita and souvlakis. Their new wine list is amazing as well.
Second review. Akari is a solid regular on my list and the reason is clear. They have almost every Japanese items imaginable from Takoyaki to teriyaki to tempura and the rolls are always solid. I've enjoyed coming here for years with friends or with the gf. It has an excellent vibe at night and it's usually very clean and well managed.
Last night I had this strange craving for sushi, and decided to grab dinner of rolls and tempura to go before our outing. The tempura was made to order, so it took a few minutes and they were hot, crisp, and tasted like a good crispy tempura should. Didn't get any of the rice dishes this time, but I probably should have.
What I was impressed about though is the service. We sat by the bar and the chef created these rolls that weren't even on the menu. Every imaginable creations were sampled that night and we were the lucky couple who got to actually TASTE and try them out! The rolls were the Alaskan crab rolls and a mash of the Dragon and Rainbow rolls...melt in your mouth creations. It was complemented well with the house seaweed salad. They asked for feedback on these new dishes and the wait staff continuously refilled our tea. TALK ABOUT CUSTOMER SERVICE!
The hall was pretty busy that night too. Only about 3 or 4 tables were empty and still they gave us the full attention throughout the night. Or maybe it was just the night that we went but this DEFINITELY the most MEMORABLE experience and tasty experience at a restaurant in awhile.
Don't miss this place. The deal is even better during lunch.
The workers here are extremely friendly, and greet everyone with a smile and a hello when you walk in the door. The ambiance is great, they have these booth areas with rice paper doors - very cool and unlike anything I've seen in the area. The food was pretty good, I remember the rolls were a bit small though. The price is alright - it's probably more expensive than other Sushi places in the area - but not by too much. It wouldn't be my first choice for a sushi place in the area, but it's definitely a staple if you live near by it.
I really don't like going to the Delta Lion but it has been around for a while and I know a lot of people who do enjoy it. I've been once to watch a UFC fight, and it is so packed in there for one, with people just standing and flooding the bar making it impossible to reach it. What really bothered me was that I couldn't even hear the UFC fight that everyone was there to watch. They really need to work on their stereo system in there in regard to the TVs because the sound was absolutely awful. Whether or not its the placement of the speakers or what - but it sounded like mindless babbling. The food was honestly nothing special. Not impressed. I've had way better pub food. From the times that I have been there I often seem the same waitress who honestly looks like she would rather be anywhere else in the world than there. She just seems so pissed off, even when you are ordering food. I know work sucks sometimes (okay, a lot of the time) but I really don't find it enjoyable being served by someone who has a constant frown on their face. If you like hanging out with recent graduates from high school and everyone under 30 in the area - this may be the place for you - but it's definitely not the place for me and I'll avoid it at all costs.
I absolutely love Minori Sushi! Their rolls are big and very worth the price! It's fairly cheap priced for great value. I love their Vegetable Udon and Yam Tempura Rolls. I enjoy taking people to Minori that have never been because its truly a great local place to eat at. It may not look to fantastic outside, but it's definitely worth a try! They just did some very nice renovations in their kitchen area as well.
Excellent sushi – we go often - they know us well and usually have our order ready as we have the same delicious sushi every time. A couple of yam tempura rolls - cali rolls – always extra ginger, no wasabi for my wimpy friends & hot miso soup. On other occasions we have tried the veggie & prawn tempura, dynamite roll & teriyaki chicken lunch box….all excellent. Pre-ordering is recommended, as the kitchen can be busy.
A friend and I were in Delta and decided to pop in to Akari for a quick bite. We figured we go in and check out the menu first and noticed they had a large selection from reasonable to overly priced dishes, but at the same time we were greeted very pleasantly, so we decided to stay. Both my friend and I have been servers at a Japanese restaurant in the past, therefore we are understanding and compassionate with what they have to go through, but this day, our tolerance was wearing short.
At first, when we were waiting to be seated, we noticed only one other table with a couple seated, so it wasn't too busy yet and we figured the food shouldn't take too long. After we were seated at the first table by the sushi bar in the main aisle, we waited at least five minutes for a server to come by to ask us......If we would like something to drink (ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! standards at a Japanese restaurant is, you seat a customer, you bring tea to welcome them to your establishment...no questions asked). After we received our tea, we placed our order and waited for our food. The food came quite quickly, but our problems are just about to begin.
After 1/2hr there were a couple more tables seated, but not to the point where the restaurant was super busy, so we figured before it gets too busy, we will ask for the bill and possibly more tea. Well, that sure didn't happen quickly! My friend and I tried to flag a server from all directions, but no luck, we gestured to the sushi chef (who was staring right at us) for one of the servers, but he just continued to stare at us. Where we were seated, the servers section is right in their path of the main entrance, so for them not to see me calling them while looking in our direction is REDICULOUS. What frustrated me even more was even when they walked by and I said "Excuse me", they never even acknowledge our existence, they just ended up going to the back to gab away with each other. So now by this point, I am beyond angry and finally she comes and asks us if we would like anything else (when we already have our wallets in our hands). She brings us the bill and while we figure out the bill, she comes back within minutes and asks if it's alright to take the money. Unbelievable!!!
Lets just say, both of us will never return and we will spread word to all the people we know to AVOID this place at all mean. My review may be harsh, but only to receive immediate service when it comes to is just pathetic.
We went here for mothers day. Didnt have a reso, but were told 'a table just opened up' We were lead onto the patio with tons of open tables all around us. Because of the day, they were only serving buffet, so we pretty much had no choice but to do the buffet.
The lay out of the buffet was so rediculous. You can tell that they obviously didnt think this through.
there was a large selection of breakfast items, waffles,french toast, eggs, bacon, sausage, hash. Good seafood selection. There was pasta, some kind of roast. No chicken :( The dessert selection was okay. Their cheesecake is absolutely fantastic!
Our server was not so great at 'serving' We had to wait a few times for her to bring drinks to us. When she cleared our plates, she told us to keep our dirty cutlery! Gross. Would it have been that hard to bring us new cutlery??
The bill came to $184 with tax! Yes! Thats a brunch! Four people with two drinks each. The buffet was $29 per person alone!
Would probably go back, but just for the regular menu.
My boyfriend really likes this place. I beg to differ. I think he only likes this place because it is MAYBE one of the only 'reasonable sushi places in ladner' and it is only five minutes from home.
The times that we eat here, I always feel sick afterwards. I totally refuse to dine in because service is sooo bad. I dont understand why they cant acknowledge anyone when they first walk in. A simple hi/ hello would suffice. Instead they greet with a turned eye and seat you only when its convenient for them.
The last time we ordered, My california cones were ALL rice, and a few strands of that fake crab meat. I would rather hop in the car and drive ten minutes into richmond where you can find many other good sushi places.
I have been eating at nikko sushi since I was very young and have always thought it was the best sushi anywhere! their raw sushi is always fresh and the cooked food is always hot and the portions are awesome. for such a small business they have really done well for themsleves. the staff is always friendly, and the servers, even though they are not japanese (does it really make a difference??), are always very happy and more importantly fast.
this small restuarant has created such a big name for itself, well done nikko sushi!!!
If you have not visited Taverna Gorgona since new owners took over in December 2009, visit again.
There has been a remarkable improvement in the food, although the new owners have maintained menu (with minor adjustments). The family, from Greece, knows how to cook. Appearance and freshness of the food were excellent. The decor is the same, but this is really an entirely different experience from days of yesteryear.
We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy, but the staff was able to easily handle everything, as was the kitchen. We were advised early that a large party could slow down our order. We were not rushed in our decisions, however, and when our order was placed, wait time was very good (15-20 min for each course).
For starters we tried saganaki and calamari, both of which were very well executed. The calamari was moist, nicely breaded, and not overcooked. The saganaki was a bit small to share with four people, a nice portion for two, and was served with a quartered pita bread - again, a nice amount.
The mousaka was unbelievably good; the souvlaki excellent. A chicken and prawn linguini in a cream sauce was nicely done (pasta a bit overcooked for my taste) and the sauce was fresh and not cloying. Portion sizes were not quite as overindulgent as some Greek restaurants tend to be, which was welcome.
We were treated to a complimentary dessert - Ekmek, made in the restaurant (not ordered from a food service company - hooray!) - which was absolutely delicious, the custard light, and fresh.
We will go again - and so should you!
