Like Dairy Queen; Baskin and Robbins has been around for decades and specializes in dairy ice cream treats that rise to any occasion but like the cost of living in overpriced Canada, their food items have soared in prices and value. The franchise's history stems from Ontario, Canada and the provide good quality foods at a cost, but not cheap....
My husband and I went here for an early dinner. 3:45
My husband had the blt sandwhich with side salad he said it was very good.
I had the turkey dinner and was not impressed b the small portion size.
there was only 2 small slices of turkey, about a tblsp of stuffing, good portion of mash, large size of broccoli and carrots with only one cauliflower. (cooked). the food was hot but not very filling for $12.50
I waS surprised when the waitress said that my dinner came with a desert so I got excited, I had the coconut cream pie, it was very good until I found a small hair in the pie half way through eating it.
will not eat here again because of the portion size/price and because of the hair.
The food was horrible, as a matter of fact it went in the garbage. A waste of $40.00. My dog would not even eat it.... The only thing that was of any value was the take out containers, they looked nice! I can't even submit this because my review has to be at least 50 words. What else can a person say that it was disscusting and if we would have eaten any more than 3 bites we would all probably would have gotten sick. The whole idea of ordering in is to relax and not want to cook. There did I say enough.................
I was there April 3 2014. It is a typical strip club. What amazed me that there was 8 people there from 3-6pm.
This place needs a visit from Bar Rescue. Where I sat, there were at least 15 seats that had ripped fabric on them. This shows me that management doesn't give a shit about the place.
The TV's where lacking clarity, out of focus.
The single woman who was serving all 8 of us patrons, was sloowwwwwww to do anything.
At one point there was no staff (dj, bouncer, server, bartender) in the joint. Out smoking perhaps?
The mens bathroom was appalling. One of the 2 stalls didn't even have a working lock on it. Upon looking at the floor, there was loads of gunk of unknown origin. NASTY!! I think it has never been scubbed clean.
The food was alright. Nothing to write home about. The chef must be lazy because it was so easy to see that he/she uses packaged guacamole, at $2.95 extra for nachos.
I don't think I will be returning.
The ABC franchise has been around for decades and we've gone there a few scattered times only to be disappointed. The steak dinner is not worth their "beefy prices", in my view, and you get far better quality and quantity in Bellingham steak places and homestyle restaurants like Shari's across from Bellis Fair Mall. I challenge anyone to go to this USA restaurant to see the difference. Their steak dinner are comparably priced but our teenager could barely finish it in the USA whereas, in contrast, at ABC he was picking off our plate after finishing his own. Sorry to say, like The Keg and other steak houses, we pay too much for steak dinners in Canada with smaller quality portions than our American counterparts. We went to the ABC buffet, years ago, and it was okay but costly; not everyone has the same taste buds and we are all entitled to agree, or agree to disagree.
When the China Kitchen franchise came out over 10 years ago, particularily in Coquitlam it was a good hit and we returned many times and then saw a drastic decline in quality and the food was poorly heated and was not worth the trip only to disappoint. I went to the Maple Ridge location and was instantly disappointed in the dinner buffet and quality. Our Canadian buffets do not compare to the ones in the USA, who have better quality and freshness. Would I visit this restaurant again, not unless I was very hungry and desperate for my craving and would rather travel to Bellingham for shopping and good Asian food than be disappointed here. Our restaurants are lacking in quality and quantity while charging high prices a pattern that has existed for years. The food industry has a long way to go to improve its image as there is no excuse for people to pay $10-$15 a plate or the same for buffets and go home frustrated and disappointed.
Why not sink your chompers into a variety of flavoured fish batter that will dance in your mouth as opposed to the normal run-of-the-mill fish and chips joint with just regular batter. You can choose lemon garlic, cajun, regular or another flavour. I cannot comment on their burgers and other items because we have not ordered from it and usually hit the all-you-can-eat fish and chips. The old style canning jar cups are a different spin on drinks and a unique approach. Give it a shot.....
We went to this restaurant in March 2014 and were very disappointed with the oily fish batter and overcooked fries that were not pleasing to the palate. We could not even order another helping for the all-you-can eat fish and chips after paying $28.00 for two people. They need better ventilation in the diner as it seems the smell of oil was all over and I had to dab the fish on the napkin because it was too oily. It was too bad our first choice, Joe Blow's was closed because there is no comparisson.
Our server was extremely good. She was always smiling, attentive, and made us feel welcome. The food was pretty good, but so expensive. For one burger, a chicken sandwich, pulled pork poutine, one pop, and 9oz glass of white wine our bill was $65 including tip. Ouch!!! We could go to the Keg for that price. For that reason alone, we will not be returning.
The best humous ever!! I love their chicken rice platter with double humous and no greek salad. Glad they added the sriracha chli sauce instead of the bland tomato "hot sauce" the always have.
The service at any of theses places has never been that great, but the new younger late teens girl that now works there some times of very pleasant and nice.
If I had a choice, I would certainly go to the Poco location as the same order is cheaper and a bit better.
We went to the MR White Spot and got weak service and they mixed up our order, which happens as we are all humans and subject to making mistakes. The overall experience and food was disappointing but maybe others enjoyed it. Nat Bailey started up the business and his standards are sometimes missed as we experienced similar in a Burnaby location years ago.
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.
Went to Kimi Sushi for AYCE Dinner last night for around $20 per person ...
Great Food especially the Deep Fried California Rolls; Ika Karaage and Prawn & Seafood Tempura...
Great Service from a small establishment .. Looks to be only 3 people working there but it wasn't very busy so the service was very attentive.
Noticed a lot of people coming in for take out.
Highly recommended for a little hole in the wall sushi joint ...
The only con I can think of is that their parking lot (located in the back) is dimly lit and there aren't many stalls .. but there's plenty of street parking around the restaurant ...
Been driving past this place for a long time and didn't want to give it the time of day, probably still haunting memories of a bad Dino's experience I suppose. For some reason the stars and the moon aligned tonight and the four of us decided to give it a try. When we arrived we were the only ones there but that changed quickly as more and more arrived on this week night.
Top notch value.
Chef Marko can cook, the lamb was seasoned to perfection, the peppercorn steak was delicious with just the right amount of heat. The kids pizza was a very nice gourmet style combination that appealed and they even made up an off the menu Pita wrap for our youngest with souvlaki.
The one server on duty kept up like a pro, no complaints about that either.
If I have to give a negative to appear objective I'd say the Lemon chicken soup is a pass, didn't appeal to any of us but there was another option, we just didn't choose it.
2 kids, 2 adults dinner and a bottle of $28 wine totaled $105 before tip.
Give Marko's a try, I think you will like it despite the "exterior appearances" and "Dino's past".
After waiting an hour and a half for our food we were completly taken back by the volume of food we got for the price we paid. 4 items and $50 later we didn't even have left overs. We ordered 2 meat and veggie dishes which were clearly more veggie than meat. The typical white plastic to-go dishes are now half the size and black. When we called and complained, they were less than interested in our concerns with the new portions they serve. When my wife said you just lost a customer they said OK....? I was unhappy to start but to top it off this Chinese food is bland to say the least. Too bad, Maple Ridge just has no good value restaurants. We ordered 2 pizzas, 2 for 1 a couple weeks ago and that was $50, what is going on with affordable take for family's nowadays?
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.
I don't know how a pizza place across the street from a high school goes out of business... well, actually I have a pretty good idea... anyway, the pizza was very, very good and a great value. They also made "bureks", a flaky pastry like a giant samosa. Very tasty.
They closed in August 2013, and a sign on the window says there are new owners. I hope they bought the last guy's recipes, because there isn't much in the way of quality pizza in Maple Ridge. This place was the best, by far.
Absolutely great food quality,great prices.All you can eat lunch only $12.95.Great family oriented friendly service.This is our new go-to sushi place!Overall,the biggest attraction to us is that they have some of the best deals in town.They have only been there about a year so they would definitely love more customers.
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.
Pho Long is a vietnamese noodle house in Maple Ridge. Its been open for about 2 months now. I decided to give it a try.
The decor is nice and simple, clean looking.
The soup, It was good. I ordered the Pho Dac Biet which is a mixture of everything and a spring roll. The soup was good but i found the broth to be lacking in some flavour. It was more like a chicken stock than a home made authentic beef broth like i am used to from the other Pho soup places i have been to. The tendon in the soup was chewy, it should be soft. The spring roll was soaked in oil and not crispy, but the server or i think she was the cook, noticed it was off and replaced it with out us having to ask. The other wait staff or hostess, (not sure what her position was) served us tea. I thought the tea was way too strong and normally a server would come and ask you how the meal is after you've been served. This didn't happen. She was sitting and doing something on her laptop, seemed a bit out of place in a dining area. So a little bit a professionalism in a place of business wouldn't hurt anyone.
Overall i enjoyed my experience and will return to try some other dishes.
