Recommended by friends, I've since taken them to a restaurant offering a much better grade of Chinese food than Wong's. They've switched.
First, I hope not to encounter a snarky order-taker when patronising a restaurant. True, this happened only once out of three experiences, but sometimes, once is enough. This last experience left me also with pork that, though chewed for flavour, could not be easily swallowed. At least half the dish went to the garbage. One dish on my second try was only half full. There's no value for the customer in these examples.
In general, the food relies on fat, sugar, and salt for flavour. As a chef myself, I rely on good ingredients for flavour. Their fried rice--a personal favourite in general-- is a good example of this "easy-way-out" approach to cooking that seems to be the Wong's way for the most part.
On the bright side, their delivery service has been prompt and courteous over three tries, but that's a given I take for granted. I enjoy passing on a compliment on a restaurant, but Wong's Chinese Food in Langley has made this difficult. Wong's would be wise to improve both food and service quality. This would show the respect to their clientele customers appreciate.
Went on a sunny weekend morning. It was a little later so we had to hover around for a while to wait for a table outside. There were tables inside though. Had to wait in line about 15 minutes just to order and another 15 to get it. But, it was ok as the weather was nice.
Food was good - breakfast omelette nice but alittle bland. Could have used some avocado though. The blueberry pancakes were outstanding and the potatoes good but not too abundant. You won't be stuffed but you'll be good.
The only down side when it's busy is the people asking you repeatedly if you are done or need that chair. And the bus girl was SO beyond rude rolling her eyes and sighing when I asked for salt and pepper. Some people should not work in the service industy.
Well, I'm addicted. So much flavour in every dish - I've tried quite a few and loved every one! Lots of vegan and gluten free options as well, staff is well educated on allergies, celiacs, etc. Service is always great- Gary and Anu are always helping out in the front to ensure an excellent experience! Very impressive restaurant!
Clean food, not too saucy which is what I like. Usually, I don't feel the best after Chinese food but this is one place I recommend for sure. Not oily either. Less variety than other typical Chinese restaurants but definitely enough. Cool takeout boxes too that you see on TV only.
My fiancee and I have visited this restaurant on numerous occasions. They offer a very good deal (1/2 off second meal when you stay at one of the neighboring hotels) and the food is decent.
In the past, I have simply mentioned that I am staying at the hotel and they have no issue offering the discount. However this past weekend, we visited the restaurant and mentioned we were staying at Canada's Best Value Inn but had not checked into the hotel yet. The server said she would need to see our room key to allow the discount on the second meal. I mentioned we were about to check into the hotel after eating and showed her our confirmed reservation on my iPhone. She said she would have to check with her manager and proceeded to take our order.
A few minutes later, the owner of the restaurant came by our table and very rudely told us that they could not honor the discount without a room key. The confirmed reservation was not enough -- which is ludicrous because anyone can walk away from the hotel without returning a room key. I offered to show the owner the confirmed reservation and he said that was not good enough.
At that point, we were so shocked and disillusioned with the poor customer service we picked up our coats and left. It was very obvious we would never return to this establishment.
Well, the story does not end there. As we are walking out, the owner literally comes chasing after us. I turn expecting an apology and an offer to honor the discount. However, instead, the owner, again very rudely and angrily, asks us to pay for our drinks (we had two waters and a cup of coffee which we never tasted). I turned and told the owner that we had visited his establishment on numerous occasions and how disappointed I was with the attitude and courtesy he was offering us. Yes, I paid the $2.35 for a coffee I never drank and the incredibly poor service and attitude. Yes, I could have returned 10 minutes later with a room key and caused a fuss... but what was the point?!
I will never return to this restaurant and I fully explained the situation to the hotel where they informed us of this offer. I am taking the time to add this review to let others visiting this restaurant know how they will be viewed by the very ignorant and angry owner if they ever visit.
I have lived in Langley a long time and finally gave Andreas a try a few months ago. My husband and I ordered takeout, and thought the food was mediocre at best. The service was really good, on both the phone and when my husband went to pick up the food. No complaints there. HOWEVER. Last night we decided to give the takeout another go. Bad mistake. I ended up at 2 a.m. trying not to throw up. All I can say is that the food this time around was even worse than poor. It was downright disgusting. We have tried twice with the Greek salad, and both times have been very disappointed. Bland is the best I can describe for it. Which is a heck of a lot better than I could say about the Tortellini dish I received. Right away I noticed it was lukewarm, even though my husband was there to pick it up 20 minutes after we had given the order. After the first few bites I noticed a weird taste, which I attributed to the sauce. It tasted almost sour. I added some red pepper flakes, hoping that would make a difference. Not. I then asked my husband if I could taste his own sauce, which was on the Rigatoni. His sauce definitely tasted different than mine, even though we both had the meat sauce. I then cut into one of my tortellini and took a good whiff. WHEW!!! There was the culprit. Something was absolutely RANK in the tortellini filling. Supposedly it was meat tortellini, but the stuff in the middle just looked gray. I almost threw up right there. Instead I threw out the rest of my dinner, as well as the takeout menu we had. Never again.
i came in the other day and had this one woman as a server. I assume she was the manager because of the way she addressed the other staff. Anyways she was extremely cold and snarky to my friends and I not only us but her staff as well in front of her customers.I will not be coming back to this establishment.
So we stopped by on the weekend. I disagree with the person who said the patio was nice. Yuk - who wants to sit on a sidewalk beside the parking lot of a strip mall. So we went inside. I'd say this is the worst Brown's patio anywhere.
We were seated in a nice booth. I did not find the washrooms confusing. But, I guess I've been going to the bathroom for a while now. There are many restaurants where you have to walk by the bathroom to get the the kitchen - just logistics sometimes.
The drinks are the best part - their $4 house wine is great. I'm not sure why someone would be "shocked" by a $2.50 charge for tonic and lime - that's a standard price for pop in a restaurant as far as I know.
The blackedned halibut sandwich was delicious with plenty of fish - I upgraded to yam fries for $1 = well worth it, The cheese burger was said to be delicious too. We were not asked if we wanted dessert or anything else so we just paid and left. The food was good, but a little too high priced for what you got.
The staff was not very friendly and our waitress barely spoke to us at all and was very slow. I guess you can't have it all.
My wife and I first tried Azul's using a groupon ticket some time back. We quite enjoyed the meal at that time so in trying to decide where to go on a Friday night we decided we would try Azul's again. The décor was nice and the atmosphere was casual. Not too many people in attendance, although as the evening progressed the numbers increased. We chose to be seated at a booth, tables are available as well, and we were joined shortly thereafter by a very pleasant waitress.
We started with a pitcher of their house lager, not too bad. We then ordered a serving of calamari to share. I should have ordered one for each of us as I really didn't want to share it. The calamari was so very tender and tasteful, the best we have ever had. Next we tried their Caesar salad, it certainly was acceptable but lacking a little in the flavor department.
Now onto the main course, as we both enjoy seafood as well as pasta it turns out that we ordered the same dish, the Sea Food Trio Linguini. The meals arrived in short order and were piping hot. The rose sauce was delectable and the mussels, prawns and salmon were cooked to perfection as was the linguini. We ended the meal with the Azul's House Special coffee, a tasteful end to a wonderful meal.
We cannot say enough about the meal, we salute the cook. The menu pricing was in line, our service was very good, our waitress was there when she was needed and always with a smile.
Thank you to the staff of Azul's for making our choice for dinner an excellent one.
Eveything was fine, ya know, the usual fast food restaurant. Service was just okay, not particularly friendly. The fries were obviously not fresh, but tasted fine. The burger was also not fresh, but it was just okay. My Fruitopia fountain drink was fine until I realized there were some black bits of something sunk at the bottom of my drink. One was quite large, while another was about half its size. I had only taken a few sips of my medium-sized drink when I saw these nasties through my Fruitopia and ice, moving around at the bottom of my cup. Creepy. I decided to pour out my entire drink just to see what they were. Once I poured out my drink, I saw that there were about 4-5 various sized, flat, deep black pieces of who-knows-what laying at the bottom of my cup. They weren't baked into the plastic of cup. It looked like they had fallen in before the drink was put in. I surmised that they looked similar to blackend pieces of char from a grill, but who really knows? I'm grossed out. I won't be going back there. I was just okay with the restaurant up until that point, but the drink killed it. Is the kitchen dirty or what? I don't know, but it very well could be.
An Ode to Matt (the donair):
Matt oh Matt, how we love thee!
We come to see you, when we are hungry.
We love to see your smiling face, you're always happy.
You know everyone by name, that's impressive golly gee!
We love your donairs and don't forget the bubble tea.
Matt oh Matt, how we love thee!
This place is superkalafragalistic type yummy. Matt makes wicked food and is such a good guy. He knows all the customer by name is genuinely pleased to see you when you come in. Never had a bad meal here, never had bad service here. Can't complain!! Keep doing what you're doing Matt, the word is spreading!
Well I'm excited to be the first person to give a review! This place is amazing! They have a two medium special for $19.99! and they delivery FOR FREE!! The pizza itself is very tasty. The sauce has a nice bite to it. It's family owned by a super nice guy, who makes the pizza, and sometimes does the delivery too! Very good customer service. I have been ordering from them since I moved to Langley almost 2 years ago! I would definitely recommend :)
I ordered food for two (sweet and sour pork, rice, ginger beef, and beef chop suey) and it was almost $40 for take out. I guess I was just hoping for more leftovers. The portion sizes were pretty small for the price you pay. The food was okay, nothing special. Delivery took a long time. Nothing special.
Had a great experience here! Wish the place was bigger, because it's SO busy! There were a lot of people getting take out (we were seated, right across from the take out area) which makes me think it's good! We got seated promptly as we arrived pretty early in the evening. The soup was AMAZING!
I enjoyed the whole experience.
Horrible experience. Took almost 20 minutes for take out. The people (who happened to be East Indian, like the people serving them) who came in after us got their take out food before us, and we ordered the same thing they did! Totally unimpressed. Very over priced chicken. Not going back.
We had lunch at Adrian's today and sat on the patio which was lovely. The food took a long time to arrive. My dad had the lamb and mom had a beef dip. They were both pleased with their meals. My son and I received less than satisfactory meals. The lettuce on my sandwich and side salad was limp and brown. My son ordered a kid's cod and Ceasar salad. His salad was yellow. I spoke with our server who said the salads seemed rotten but did not offer to exchange them or remove mine which was untouched from our bill. She did say she would mention it to the kitchen staff. I suggested she tell hem not to serve that. She said they put the lettuce in a bucket of ice so it was possible mine had been frozen then thawed. I wouldn't feed the salad I received to my guinea pig. Shame on you Adrian's! Next time, I'll pack my own lunch and watch the planes from the parking lot
We have been eating here for many years and through several owners. It used to be a good old fashioned restaurant with decent food, service and prices. Now it it just a restaurant with poor food. Never had a problem with any of the wait staff but a lot of the old timers are gone now.
We stopped in last Saturday while running errands. First appearances count and many, many specials are taped to the windows to attract customers. It is off putting. Service is so slow it is painful. Oddly, the place is often busy.
The coffee is awful, utensils cheap, a menu that offers far too many items. We were informed that a week day special is now available on weekends. We chose to have breakfast. My hash browns were so dry and overcooked I could have used them as sandpaper, cold too. Bacon was the same.
I was checking others plates and commented that the stove seems to have two settings. Off and burned. It was not all bad. The toast was OK.
It seems to be worse on each visit so the time has come for me to pull the plug on this place. It's too bad considering what it used to be.
The Moxies was better but not by much. Sorry Rockford, bring some excitement to your food. The whole restaurant team should go out to the Town Hall up the street and see the food they put out. It looks exciting and tastes great and is at a great price point.
Absolutely delicious food. Had it all HOT and it was wonderful. Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Rogenjosh, and of course Butter Chicken. All fabulous, renewed my appreciation for Indian food. The heat was awesome and the flavours of the fresh herbs were perfect. If you like Indian food I would give this place a try. I cannot comment on their other dishes as I don't think I will ever want to order anything else.
What a difference a few months cane make....!
Food is now even better than previous owners and cooks.. Same big portion, but full of flavour, sauces aren't watery and land..Meat is meat and great quality...
Service is as always quick, efficient and very polite..
Still on the sparse side of decor, but we weren't there to stare at the walls, we were there for great food..
Exceptional value for dollar point and huge portions ..
Keep up the great food quality guys !
