Donair Affair22645 Dewdney Trunk Road, #108, Maple Ridge
I have Donair Affairs
By Julumkana of Coquitlam, B.C. (52 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, February 23, 2014 - 1:35pm [Take-out]

I love donairs. This place in Maple ridge is not bad but i find it is inconsistent. I first started with donair affair in PoCo.Awsome donars! I was delighted to see we have one in Maple Ridge. I find the MR location is not as good at the PoCo location. I ordered three donairs, one hawaiian chicken, carribean lamb and carribean mixed chicken and beef. i guess the difference must be the portions of ingredients that go into the donair. There was too much onion and not enough tabouleh and not enough sauce. It's not like it was a bad tasting donair, it was still good. But i notice the PoCo location it's always good. Maybe they should get together and compare notes.

A good donair, nice friendly staff. I will try again soon.

Great Mongolian Grill, The22709 Lougheed Highway, #460, Maple Ridge
fresh delicious and fast asian food

The Great Mongolian Grill at Valley Fair Mall in Maple Ridge is a wonderful, unique dine-in and take-out place. My husband, son and I and have eaten Lunch here a few times, and the food is always delicious and expertly cooked. Lunch is served until 3PM and costs $8.49 for a pretty hefty meal; if you have a hollow leg there is all-you-can-eat Lunch for just $11.99. After 3 o'clock it's Dinner, for a few dollars more.
You go up to the counter and get your bowl, then proceed to fill it as full as you wish with your selections from a great variety of stir-fry ingredients. These include about two dozen kinds of fresh vegetables, as well as pork, chicken, beef, and numerous sauces such as ginger, garlic, teriyaki, hoisin, szechwan, sweet and sour, etc. Everyone heaps up their bowls to get as much as they can, which is fine as long as you eat it all! The meals also include rice and spring rolls.
I am impressed with the food every time we go here. The Mongolian Grill's been at Valley Fair for more than a year, I think. The restaurant is always busy and the food is consistently fresh. The owner keeps everything very clean, and he and his staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend it whenever you crave a tasty yet inexpensive casual lunch in Maple Ridge.

We came to Paliotti's for my mom's birthday. We had reservations for 15 but they were completely unable to deal with a large group. It took them more than 30 minutes to get drinks and take our orders half the drink orders were missed they ran out of glasses so they started bringing them in the smallest glasses known to mankind. It took them more than an hour more before we started seeing food arrive and 2 people in our group did not get there food for another 30 minutes even after complaining to the staff. The staff did not care at all and were quite rude. All they told us is that they can only make so many meals at once. When it was time for the bills they had to basically retake our orders because they had no idea who ordered what. Not one person even bothered to apologize for anything. Avoid this restaurant at all cost.

King's Kitchen22425 North Ave, Maple Ridge
Definitly not fit for a King

I ordered take out from this place. Its been a few years since i tried it. I thought maybe it changed and i am on the hunt for some good chinese food in Maple Ridge. I'm sorry to say that King's Kitchen has missed the mark. Another bad chinese food joint in Maple Ridge, the list keeps growing. Shrimp fried rice, rice is mushy, no flavor. The crispy Ginger beef wasn't crispy and over-sauced, way too sweet for ginger beef. The special house chow mein was just so plain, no flavour, bland. Hot and sour soup was ok. Nothing to rave about here. I don't really see anything authentically chinese in the flavours of the dishes. It's just bland food.

China Buffet - Pray to the chinese food gods for better chinese food.
By Julumkana of Coquitlam, B.C. (52 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 27, 2013 - 7:48pm [Dine in]

I have eaten here a few times. It's not a bad deal, $14.95 for dinner buffet with dessert. I take my two year old and 1 year old kids and they seem to like eating here. This last time i went they charged me $6.95 for my two year old daughter who really doesn't eat much. Just a handful of noodles and some ice cream. I think that is quite pricey for a child. Definitley not worth $6.95. That brought my total bill to over $40. For that price i could have ordered chinese food at home and had plenty of leftovers for the next day to take for lunch.
Overall i would say i am quite dissappointed. The chinese food in Maple Ridge is generally bad and this place isn't much better. I don't think i will be going back anytime soon. I just wish we had a decent chinese restaurant with good consistant food in Ridge. The menu at China Kitchen is getting boring , same items all the time. The mussels didn't taste fresh, Store bought desserts . Not really impressed.
although The servers are quite friendly and prompt. Overall i would say it was just ok.

Went to the café (had kids with us) to share a couple of their wood-oven pizzas. Pizzas were not bad, but unfortunately the incredibly slow / inept service overshadows everything. The ambience (we sat out on the patio facing the water) was fantastic - very quaint - great location. The down side - took us over 20 minutes to receive a drink, and over an hour waiting for 2 pizzas. Could not even get an ice tea in under 15 minutes - really no excuse for that. The kicker was when the pizzas arrived - we had to wait another 5 minutes for plates and cheese shakers while our pizza went cold. The waitress had an hour to prepare - can you not bring the needed items prior to the pizza arriving? Would not go again unless it was dead or we had an entire evening to sit around.

What was the closing hours again?
By [email protected] of maple ridge BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 1:13pm [Dine in]

So I normally hit this place during lunch, always awesome and I walk away pretty happy. I tried to go there at 5:30 the other day, the closing hours are supposed to be 6pm but the ladies working there said they wouldn't make any food for us because it was too close to closing time, what????? So basically the closing hours are 5:30, not 6, they should post that. It totally turned me off that spot for a while, it's one of those things you see third party evaluations always test first and they failed in a big way.

I'll go back, just not anytime soon.

Thanks!

This restaurant has gone downhill over the years. Sorry to say but this is a bad choice for Greek food in maple ridge. The portions are getting smaller by the day . They could not get the food out on time Even with a heads up phone call prior to coming in one day before. This was always a favorite restaurant for us but every time we have gone there now it has been very disappointing. I don't think they realize that you need to give a decent portion size to make the customer feel he is getting value and keep him coming back. We had a big group of people and they could not get the food out on time with most of us sitting watching others eat is not comfortable. They had a hard time even serving drinks to people that were waiting . This one was the final straw for us we are not going back anymore.

Donair Affair22645 Dewdney Trunk Road, #108, Maple Ridge
Best donair in the city...or maybe even the province
By mapia of Port Moody, Greater Vancouver (53 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 6, 2013 - 12:45pm [Take-out]

If I could, I would eat here for lunch or dinner EVERY DOGDAMN DAY. It's THAT good. It is everything you could ever want in a donair place PLUS IT IS CLEAN. I have it on good authority that the health inspectors even dig this place. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT, PEOPLE!

The owners are ridiculously friendly. And they remember people and what they like to order, right down to the sauces. The in-house made hot sauce is not hot so much as it is so flavorful and tasty. They also make their own tzaziki, which is fantastic. I usually get a green salad with all the veggies possible, topped with chicken or lamb or both and use the sauces for dressing. They do a caeser and greek salad as well. When I am feeling extra carb-loady, I will indulge in the donair platter, which comes with the most fragrant rice, heaven-scented with butter and what seems to be tumeric or saffron. Like, I could eat buckets of it.

And cheap. I don't think I have ever spent more than $10. When I left my job in MR for one in the core of Vancouver, little did I know that I would not be able to find anything that is as close to this place for my lunches. I am now relegated to brown bags and daydreams...

This establishment, when in regards to food preperation is excellent increasingly plummets with their nothing short of deplorable customer billing is concerned. I was repeadedly overcharged without any logical regard to menu price. This is unacceptable considering this is a licenced establishment. Poor concession attempts to rectify the numerous ordering situations, really left a regular customer wondering why buy anymore from these people, the acerbic concensus is do not deal with these people unless you are obliged to be grossly overcharged!

Our dining experience was average. I cannot give high ratings for service as we were seated at a table without napkins and eventually had to ask for them.

The food was mediocre at best. Tasteless and poorly made. The alfredo sauce was bland and the sauce for the veal was an oily mess of rue gone wrong. As for the mashed potatoes... can I get more potato with my garlic please??? Too much garlic!!

For the pricing of the menu there are many other restaurants that offer more flavorful food prepared by Chef's. Will not be returning.

Pleasant surprise after a long time of not visiting Pyrgos!
By Barbara Ewart of maple RIdge BC Canada (0 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, June 8, 2013 - 3:38pm [Dine in]

My husband and I visited Prygos May 25th after many years of not going there; for no particular reason. We were seated right away and it was nice to see the daughter of the man who owned Pyrgos was still there. He had passed away some time ago.

Anyway, we ordered drinks which came right away. While we mulled over what we wanted the place started to fill up, so when the gal came by we ordered to get things started. We had escargots for appies. They were delicious! They're not afraid of garlic, which is a good thing! The dipping bread, though not something I indulge in, was flavorful and entirely wonderful to sop up the leftover goodies. Rob ordered the Greek sampler entree. I had decided on the braised lamb - an unusual choice for me because lamb can be very greasy. It was a little slow in coming, but not uncomfortably so. But it was well worth the wait! Rob was delighted with the sampler and my braised lamb was fork tender and not greasy at all. Accompanied by the usual Greek salad (tasty with REAL feta), seasoned rice (again good) and the de rigeur roast potato which I didn't touch. All together the food was piping hot and as delicious as it smelled! We had dessert - For me, chocolate mousse, which turned out to be a frozen cake which was okay. Rob had their homemade cheesecake. A baked cheesecake served with delicious strawberry compote. It was very good. The night was enlivened by a birthday celebration across from us. Their laughter, a little loud at times, was fun to listen to; though it apparently annoyed some others who clearly have never been to Greece where such occurrences are common! Opa!

We decided that this was to be a new start for occasional dinners at Pyrgos again. They've changed the interior, brightened it up and, with the new tables and chairs, have improved the ambience greatly. If you're looking for more than a family run business with good food and nice people working there, this isn't for you! But if you're just looking for good Greek food, this is the place. Yassas!

My husband and I are food snobs, a tough pair to please. We moved from Yaletown to Maple Ridge, and Halu Sushi is our go-to place for fresh, delicious, clean sushi. They are always busy, you never get the feeling anything has sat or was a left over. Most sushi places don't have enough customers, ergo the food doesn't get turned over enough. Not the case here.

Good food. Consistently delicious.

Too Much MSG
By clovenhoof of North Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, February 9, 2013 - 10:13am [Take-out]

I had the Szechuan chicken (nothing Szechuan about it) and ginger beef; both were passable. My wife had the bbq pork chow mein. She was sick for a week, which we think was a reaction to excess MSG. The first day after the meal was very scary, as she was six months pregnant at the time, and the cramps and vomiting had us fearing the worst. But it became clear pretty quickly that it wasn't anything serious, and wasn't food poisoning in the traditional sense.

If you like food fair-quality Chinese food, then you'll be okay here. Otherwise....

Was a little skeptical at first with it being under new management but been back twice and both times now the dining experiences have been fantastic!

They still have yummy specials in the Bistro lounge & the prime rib with Yorkshire pudding is to die for! On special on a Sunday night yet. The schnitzel is as moist and tender as ever, huge portions too. Extensive menu selection makes deciding on a meal a bit of a challenge. Top notch service and pleasant ambiance. Would definitely recommend.

I wish I could say more but I honestly didn't want to waste too much time. Want to let me fellow diners that this is not the place to go. I really hope that it was just an off night but where do I start. Horrible service...waited about 10 minutes to have someone say something to us...finally got our drinks after another 10-15minutes and they were BOTH WRONG!!! What can I say we had the food it really wasn't anything special. It took about 30 minutes to get out to us but I guess that was fine since we finally had our drinks after she switched them for the right ones. Long story short...terrible experience...try it out if you dare but don't you were warned. Really wanted this place to change with the new ownership. Not sure what happened cause Mission Springs kicks a**.

Had delivery tonight for the first time from these guys. I've had the food many times before but this was the first time trying out the service. Food was fantastic as usual although I could tell it had been sitting for at least 20 or so minutes, but its delivery. I guess that's expected. Driver was a little grumpy and short with me, but staff at the store over the phone very helpful. I've satisfied the craving and had to share. Good job Wok Box!

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The20640 Dewdney Trunk Road, Maple Ridge
Never returning
By mechanical of Lower Mainland, Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, January 13, 2013 - 10:10pm [Dine in]

A group of us couples went to the Keg at 6:15 to secure a table for a 7:00 diner. We were told that it would be max 30 minute wait and that we should wait at the bar next door as there is not enough room to accomodate all of us at the lounge and wait inside the restaurant. We sat for one hour 45 min in the bar next door with other restaurant patrons as depicted by their beeper disc that calls you when your table is ready running up a nice tab until we decided to go and wait inside the retaurant and demand a table which is what we did and got a table. When we finally got seated and our meals were served my steak was a grissly chew toy and crab legs were cold from being thawed out they were definitely not fresh.

The Kegs food prices are by far not economical as well as the drinks but one should get a fair meal for a fair price but this is definitely not the case here. I eat at restaurants 3-4 nights a week including the Keg where I live but this Keg is way off the mark and should consider changing the way it does business. I would also like to say that I have never complained ever written a review about anything but this this place really needs one written so that things canbe corrected.

Submitted Saturday, January 12, 2013 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

First off I got in and sat down and when proceeding to order I requested one thing that I have requested at 4 other sushi places in the last week and all but this one were more than willing to accommodate. That was my first disappointment. After placing my order I watched the waitress and the cook gossip for a few minutes in their own language. Once receiving my food I was disappointed to see how terribly the tuna was dissected of the bad parts only to bite into my rolls and find something hard that I had I spit out and never did figure out what it was. The rolls were poorly made and the nigiri fell apart as soon as I picked it up. I am disappointed to even pay for this meal and am rather surprised that anyone considers this good sushi. Of 5 places in maple ridge this was the worst and will never come here again.
