Azumae offers an all you can eat menu featuring Japanese and Korean food.
Went here for lunch while I did some shopping in Langley. It was not easy place to find if you do not have a GPS. The restaurant is located between some residential complex and the building the place is in could have been pass off as a 1 level motel. Well the ambiance inside is quite nice and the ALL-U-CAN-EAT is quite good. The selections is limited, there was no sashimi on the $12.99 menu but if you wanted it you have to pay more. There was also a $21.99 menu which I believe there was sashimi. Yet for the $12.99 menu you get some interesting and tasty rolls such as the Crazy roll which is a cali roll deep fried. The food was fresh and was delightfully served promptly. I was impressed for what you pay for. Would definitely come back for AYCE when I am in the neighbourhood.
2012 - Ive been 3 times now, food is fresh, good service, consistent......im happy, they have my business. All I could say is maybe need some specials or combo specials. The all you can eat is good, price is great lunch 12.99, good way to sample most of the dishes. All smiles from me, great place.
I know there isn't much to choose from as far as AYCE sushi goes in Langley, or even all of Surrey for that matter, so it's nice to have one close by now. New ownership took over in 2011 or so, and it's been good since then. Worth checking out if you don't want to spend thru the nose to try various items.
This was the restaurant of choice for a birthday celebrating friend. Having driven through to langley, so many times who knew a restaurant in that far area?
We were in for the Korean BBQ and accompanying sides. The pickled vegetables were particularly enjoyable. Our first couple of rounds of grilling meats were nicely marinated though subsequent orders came out bland, likely the dressing too watered down. The always delicious seafood pancake was again undeniably good, though the overpowering greasiness took over a bit too much of the taste. Maybe they should consider adding a side of napkins to sop up the oil that wasn't lucky enough to be absorbed by the pancake. The soup was ok though more appropriate as a stomach filler.
It was busy so the service was stretching itself through our visit. Still, the staff seemingly handled our rowdy crowd with fair ease.
You get the expected Korean BBQ styling so no surprises. It's loud all around, but not obnoxious. Another expectation you can count on is a change of clothes when you leave. This restaurant runs with the crowd, so all in all, we left happy.
After our first visit that wasn't the greatest dining experience we have shared together, my wife and I decided to give it a second try several weeks later.
Both times we have been here, we have been the only ones in the establisment (that should have been the 1st warning clue). This last time around, we were also alone for the whole 90 minutes, no take out, no walk ins. The entire place is FREEZING, the have these little plug in electric heaters that other than glow orange don't do a whole lot to warm the place up.
Service is fast ( no one else to wait on ), but the food quality is very very poor and sloppy. All the sushi we had was so vinegary tasting we had to leave some behind, the tempura was hot and crisp, but within a minute was stone cold due to the temperature inside the place. THe spicy salmon cones were made with canned salmon and some sort of hot sauce.. All the portions were so very very small you could barely taste what was there in front of you. A few time during the meal service we had to keep asking for HOT tea, as the pot would cool to room temp after a few minutes.
THe only interesting part of the evening was a game we played called "COUNT THE SPELLING MISTAKES". If you do dare to tempt the food gods and venture into the questionable restaurant, grab a take out menu and card, and count the spelling mistakes.. We stopped at 8 on the business card and 15 on the take out menu.
Food was really that bad, Service was ok, but the quality and content of food was so poor there is no way to make up for it.
The menu is so very small in selection that you only have a few choices to make .
STAY AWAY and save your gut and your money !
