We keep going back

I am so surprised at that there are bad reviews about the food at the Kingfisher. My husband and I have been probably 7 times and have really enjoyed the food every time. I really feel the owners try to keep things new and fresh and take pride in the menu. I can't say I have ever had the best service ever, but nothing I would complain about. The tables are pretty close together and if you sit at a table with one of the vents in the floor...brrr... I think the Kingfisher will get better with time. Starting a restaurant is not easy and I really commend the husband/wife team and think they have done a great job. Like I said - I have been very happy with my meal every time and so has my husband. I love to cook, love trying new food and I would very much recommend the Kingfisher.

I love the "sheep". Great wings (and cheap on certain nights). Everything Ive eatten here, Ive loved!!! The service is a bit slow (but I always find this is the case in a pub)The new location is beautiful with a great decor...they did a fantastic job. Lots of windows and seating. Great ambiance! Lots of parking. Would reccomend this place to anyone...especially for the wings!!!

Austin Fish & Chips22709 Lougheed Hwy, #690, Maple Ridge
Dependably Excellent Fish and Chips
By Dashe of Maple Ridge (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 10, 2008 - 1:18pm [Dine in]

We occasionally eat here for lunch, and the decor is a bit, um, simple, but the fish is what it's all about, after all, right?

We always get cod and chips, always fresh and crisp with a nicely cooked thinnish batter, and homemade chips. Takeout fish stays crisp (if you're a fast driver, call ahead!) for quite a while. The fish is firm and pretty much perfect.

Coleslaw is average, fresh; but it needs more dressing. Tartar sauce is okay, but it contains dill, which I'm not wild about.

So all in all, I recommend Austins for consistently good fish and chips, in-house, or takeout.

Greek Greek Greek

This restaurant screams Greek from the moment you enter the door. Old hardwood flooring, tile and plaster on all the walls, Gothic Arches and Greek memorabilia give it an old world charm. The waitress even looked authentic. The restaurant had a couple large party's as well as some individuals who seemed to be regulars. The only complaint was, needing a good airing out.
The waitress took a couple of trips to our table before relaxing and breaking open a smile, but was helpful and competent. Our wine was delivered in an old olive oil can partly filled with crushed ice. The Pita Bread and Tzatziki was warm and tasty. We settled on a Combination Plate for the appetizer, which was excellent. A good variety allowed us to taste a little of everything.
We chose Prawns Souvlaki and Calamari for our entree's and both were very well done. Large portions, too much in fact, so that we didn't have room for dessert. A special coffee, was all we could handle.
A very enjoyable evening and interesting ambiance.

Lunch at the GM

I consider myself a somewhat restaurateur and have extensive knowledge in the restaurant business. So i decided to try out a Maple Ridge restaurant that i had a review from my friend who raved about the place. The parking lot was stupid to get to and a pain to drive in and out of but that's not a huge issue. The Restaurant decor was sub-par although they did have some nice features like a waterfall mirror on the bar and a fountain in the main room. But the rest of the decor and poor quility furniture took away from it. My server was excellent, funny, and curteous. The food was fairly quick and quite tasty (had Butter Chicken and Naan bread). One of my main complaints was the price though. A 37 dollar bill for two peopel to have rice, bread, and butter chicken. Seems a bit outrageous. Thank goodness someone else was taking care of the tip. All in all i would avoid going to the restaurant itself and getting some takeout instead, but be warned that you'll pay a heavy fee for this indian food.

Huge Potential

The Deck on a sunny day is a fantastic place for lunch, however the food is bland, and the service is not bad. I find the inside of the resturant to be extremely noisy, and I'm used to going to pubs for lunches, business and otherwise. If they could break up the inside so you don't feel like your in a large open barn, that would help immensely! Parking is a very dicey affair, you don't want to park anything bigger than a car or small SUV. I'm sure that won't be a problem after the ferry closes and the road can be utilized.
The resturant needs a good cook/chef with some new ideas, the food needs upgrading!

I've lived in M.Ridge for almost 40 years and I've been going to this resturant for as long as I can remember. We quite often have dinner in the lounge when
we're in the area. The dining room is getting dated and could use a makeover, but real life isn't like TV so it stays much the same and hasn't really changed! Hence the Old Faithfull label!

We go there for the food & service, which is still very good and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. We like the ample parking, central location
and most importantly the people that work there.

Frogstone Grill, The22932 Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge
One of our favourites

This is our default restaurant when we have family in town and need to go eat. The experiences are generally good, I say this because I was really disapointed by my last meal that lacked any flavour and I should have sent it back. Despite this, we have had so many good experiences that we will probably continue to go back.

The ambiance is fun, with bright murals and walls and a bit of an infestation of froggy decor. Nice bathrooms, which is important when you have a baby to change or a diabetic that needs to take insulin, the back handicap washroom is perfect for this.

The menu is nice, but we wish that they would consider some new fresh menu items.

I picked up my order and took it home. When I opened the box I looked down at something that made me wonder if these folks were proud of thier product or if they had lost that lovin feelin.

Personally, I expected a little more. Local operators are supossed to be betterr than the chains ... they need to hit the books and get the love back into their pizza.

Another one bites the dust
By lotusmud81 of North Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, October 11, 2008 - 1:44am [Dine in]

Since they upgraded this place has gone down the tubes. Again I moved back to town only to find all the places I loved have 'expanded' and gone to shit.

FOOD: Obviously a different chef. Tastes like they use frozen vegetable medley in place of chopped veggies in alot of their menu items (I know the old chef used to chop/could see him through the door when the waitresses went in and out of the kitchen)

SERVICE: Still great

VALUE: Meh. Average price for below average grub

AMBIANCE: What do you want it is a small hole in the wall in the Ridges ghetto.

Not impressed and will probably stick with Ocean Village

Downhill slide

I used to love GM restaurant. I tried a different dish everytime and discovered that perhaps being a vegetarian (which I was considering but am not) was more than beans and tofu. The owner seemed so incredibly nice and the food was spiced nicely and the meal was cheap.... then they 'upgraded'. I moved away and came back to find the yummy cheap food was no longer.

FOOD: The spice seemed to leave the menu and everything was mild to tasteless. The last two times I went the food was cold and the 'medium' spice was non existant. I even tried to up it to 'super hot' the Aloo Muttar was like yogurt with food colouring and some curry perfume.

DECOR:The decor was and still is tacky and looked like a 70's Indian garage sale with a garden fountain in the midst. They seemed to make an effort to fulfill every stereotype that Indians are saddled with.Empty all the times I went or else completely packed and noisy as hell with no sound barriers or absorption (except the FOUNTAIN)

VALUE: Previously you could get a nice sized 'dish' with rice and roti for under 12 bucks now you pay for everything separately and rarely get out under 20 bucks a person. Don't bother ordering water just bring your own the service is that damn slow (see below)

SERVICE: It is like they pride themselves in beating down their employees until they are broken ghosts of humanity that only come to work to pay for whatever bill is pressing. The owners wife gives you amurky greeting then when she wakes from her nap she may come and take your order or you can wait for the teenager that comes for the next shift. I used to see this awesome tiny philipino girl and she was amazing then when I moved back I see these lifeless kids that obviously hate their jobs and exit through the revolving door that GM has for its wait staff. All the old staff that were there for years are gone and the new staff is lacking of course no worries they quit within months anyway. I think it is fairly telling when you see employees constantly quit a job, the food went downhill so I am assuming the chef left too.
____________________________________________________________
All in all I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone anymore and will not go back myself. Sad but the once great 'gem' of a restaurant has turned into a food court buffet with crap service.

Mixed experience
By joe_199 of Pitt Meadows (2 Reviews)

Ate here yesterday around midafternoon, when it wasnt busy. I'd been in there before when it was packed and the experience wasn't so great... If you don't like a wait, avoid rush times!!

Overall I had a mixed experience. We were seated by a lively, and I'll even say beautiful girl, which was a charming start... But when our server came she seemed sort of out of it and wasn't talkative. Service was ok.

Not a long wait for food, but then again, not a lot of other people in the place. It was a passable meal, a little on the cold side.

They do have terrible seating plans, as was pointed out in another review. Even though there isn't a lot of room, it just feels cluttered with the way the tables are too close to each other. Privacy means alot to some people!

If anything come for a few drinks and just take in the view. Haven't tried out patio yet, but will definately do so in the future..
