Madras Club House13737 72 Ave #130, Surrey, BC V3W 2P2, Newton, Surrey
Excellent southern Indian food
Submitted Saturday, October 1, 2016 - 5:07pm [Dine in]

I've literally been here 3 times this week for uthapam alone. It's a kind of crepe that is a vegetarian's delight with choice of 3 toppings. I usually choose tomato, onions and green chillis. Madras coffee is out of this world! If you are a foodie and want to try very good South Indian food, you must try this place. It is in Newton and a bit difficult to find. Other favorites of mine are the lamb dosa, chicken 69, & spring masala dosa. The business is family run and has become one my favorite places.

The food was excellent and I will go back
Submitted Tuesday, September 20, 2016 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

The location, food and service were excellent. We were a group of 6 and ordered multiple dishes off their lunch menu. Every dish was amazing. I will definitely re-visit this place in the future. Also, the restaurant is right on beach drive and has a beautiful view of the water and dock.

Not impressed and expected more
Submitted Tuesday, September 20, 2016 - 5:54pm [Dine in]

We were a group of 4 expecting a lot more from this bistro but were very disappointed. The food is bland and the service is slow. We ordered various dishes but nothing seemed to impress us. We reserved a table in advance and were promised a good spot with a candlelight. None of that happened. If you are a foodie, do not bother. Seriously tasteless food!

Absolutely delicious
Submitted Saturday, April 11, 2015 - 10:09am [Dine in]

Rama is by far the best indian food around. The flavours are unique to each dish. The tandoori chicken is infused with eastern mouthwatering flavours. If you are a foodie check this place out. Very authentic. Completely hooked to this place. Be aware the ambiance is average but the food is awesome

Gill Food Samosa111-12025 Nordel Way, Surrey, BC V3W 1W1, Surrey
Best samosas in town!
Submitted Saturday, April 12, 2014 - 2:59pm [Take-out]

We discovered this place through word of mouth and the owner use to sell samosas from her residence. She finally opened up a tiny shop just behind the Crown Palace Banquet hall near Nordel way. These vegetarian samosas are divine. These are crispy, filled with potato, peas, coriander and heavenly spices. The crust is not thick and the owner cooks them on the spot. We noticed she has a strong clientele and often we see the same people coming back for more. We're hooked and have become addicts! Awesome with ketchup and she also sells her own chutney. We haven't tried other stuff off the menu.

Satya Asha Veggie Food World12950 80 Ave, Surrey
Watch out, here comes really great Indian food!!!
Submitted Sunday, September 1, 2013 - 4:20pm [Dine in]

Last Tuesday we were drove into Surrey and found an amazing Indian restaurant that specializes in Veggie dishes and snacks. We dared and decided to try it out. To our surprise the food was amazing! This restaurant is a small, family owned business and nothing fancy. But the food was amazing and we've been back 2 times this past week alone. They service specials everyday and for dinner they have a Thali (plate for $8.99) and you can choose 3 dishes of your liking along with rice and raita. Along with it comes naan. The naan is cooked to perfection and the food boasts of real authentic cooking. It is not your typical Indian that you get in Surrey. This food is very authentic. Interestingly the prices are very low but the quality of the food is very high. This is a definite must try!

Thai By Thai Restaurant9164 120th Street, #102, Surrey
Delicious Thai Food Finally in Surrey!!!!
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 12:28am [Dine in]

Finally we find a great Thai restaurant in Surrey. The food was very authentic and the ingredients tasted very fresh. We decided to try out their lunch special and three of us ordered separate dishes. All I can say is wow! The flavors were very savory and we left wanting more. I ordered a spicy beef dish with green beans and this dish was absolutely wonderful and full of mouth watering flavor. This dish came with a soup and spring roll all of which were fresh. We can't wait to go back. This place and Talay Thai are my only two favorite Thai restaurants in the lower mainland areas.

Nice Place but TASTES LIKE FREEZER FOOD!
Submitted Sunday, January 29, 2012 - 10:18am [Dine in]

I agreed to meet a friend at this place but was not sure what to expect. The host is very hospitable and the staff were attentitive but there were only a few customers there in the middle of the week. We ordered our dish and it arrived within 5 minutes. It tasted like cafeteria food or something I pulled out of a freezer! Terrible! If you want good Italian, go someplace else! Stick to Commercial Drive or downtown.

Chef's Kebab Restaurant16225 Fraser Hwy, #A, Surrey
Hidden Gem! Excellent Indian Food!
Submitted Sunday, December 25, 2011 - 10:31am [Dine in]

We came across this new & small Indian restaurant located in Surrey tucked away on a side street. My husband had heard about it and we decided to venture out with the kids. The owner suggested a few items from the menu. For appetizers we had lamb kebab & Amritsari fish. The presentation of the food was excellent and the garnishes were very fresh. What stood out was that the food was very tasty and not your typical Punjabi restaurant food that tastes the same! This place offers very good food and it all tastes very unique at low price. It's the kind of food you'll get in India. We then ordered the butter chicken and eggplant partha with rice. The butter chicken was exceptional and had very good spicy flavors. The eggplant was very good too but could have been a bit smokier but nonetheless was fantastic. The naan came out perfect too. The service was excellent. If you are looking for very good Indian food, rest assured this place rocks. They don't have license for alcohol but I suspect that will come in time. Service was professional as well and the chefs know their food. At the end, we ordered some masala chai and the chef recommended an unusual dessert for being an Indian restaurant. He recommended a hot brownie dessert with ice cream. It was yummy! This is not your typical Indian restaurant and we've searched for an Indian restaurant for 6 years in Vancouver. We will definitely go back and try out other dishes. So far, its two thumbs up from us. I highly recommend it if you are a foodie!

My Village Indian Cuisine2828 152 Street, #105, Surrey
Disappointing food
Submitted Wednesday, September 28, 2011 - 10:02pm [Dine in]

We recently visited this Indian restaurant located in South Surrey on 152nd St. We've been to many Indian restaurants throughout Vancouver, Surrey, Ottawa, Toronto & Delhi.

The food was a big disappointment. We ordered the lamb vindaloo which tasted like it came from a jar (Patak's to be specific). The butter chicken was not impressive and was sweet. The naan bread was fluffy and was not cooked in the tandoori clay oven. It was more like fluffy pita bread. The last item we ordered was bangan partha (eggplant) which stated on the menu was cooked in a clay oven. We could tell it was not cooked in a clay oven and appeared to be steamed dish with no taste of the eggplant being seared in a clayoven. Now, I know what bangan partha should look and taste like!

The three dishes in total was $58 dollars...a complete downer!

Matisse512 Yates St, Victoria
A nice little French restaurant in Victoria
Submitted Sunday, July 4, 2010 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

Matisse restaurant located in downtown Victoria was a delight. The food was not exceptional all around. We came in from Vancouver and have dined at other French restaurants throughout Ontario, Quebec and France. So, we had some expectations going in. Our server recommended a Reserve wine, and if I recall it was Mission Hill and went well with our dishes. We ordered the escargot and butternut squash soup as appetizers. Both were good but not exceptional in our minds. My husband ordered the halibut and I ordered the filet of beef as main courses. I tried my husband's dish but thought it was average at best. The beef was excellent and cooked to perfection with complementing garnishes. For dessert, we ordered the bread pudding and it was full of flavor and is highly recommended. The service was good too. Would I go back? Yes, I would go back and sample some of the other dishes based on the quality and ratings of some of the dishes we ordered. By the way, our seating was @ 7:30 pm and we did not see a 2nd seating at this place. We didn't leave until 10 pm. The service is a bit on the slower side but I think it is done purposely. We enjoyed it.

Prabu Sweets7035 128 St, #106, Surrey
Excellent Indian Sweets & Desserts
Submitted Sunday, June 6, 2010 - 12:06pm [Dine in]

Over the years I have tried various Indian sweets from different restaurants in the lower mainland and Ontario. Prabu Sweets was a delightful surprise! The sweets are always fresh, soft, and divine. I've sampled the majority of the sweets like chum chum, barfee, milk cake, etc and wow, they've done a great job. This is a small establishment and typically the chum chum's run out by 2 pm each day. I've been here three times and everytime there is at least 5-10 other customers waiting in line. If you like Indian sweets, try this place, you will be surprised! Highly authentic and well recommended.

Ozark's Famous BBQ19696 Fraser Highway, Langley
Average southern food at best
Submitted Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 8:27pm [Dine in]

I was craving ribs and brisket for some time after watching some of the Food Network shows on tv. I had my doubts about this place. And sure enough, the food was average. We drove in from Richmond hoping to find something great or different. I think if you are not spoiled by good southern cooking, you may find something on the menu that you like. For us, it was nothing special or worth the drive. I can't wait for our next trip down south of the border.

Rehanah's Roti & Trinidadian2518 St. Johns St, Port Moody
Excellent goat rotis!!!!!!!!!!
Submitted Sunday, May 2, 2010 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

We finally had a chance to drive down to Port Moody. We were craving Trini food for some time but have not found anything good in Vancouver. To our surprise, the goat rotis were excellent. We ordered the hot ones and asked for additional hot sauce on the side. The sauce has a hint of sweetness and then it has a huge kick to it. The goat was fantastic! The goat and potato filling is cooked to perfection. And, I have to say there was no fat in the meat or wild flavor. I'm not sure whether this was New Zealand goat but it had a lot of flavor. We also tried the chicken roti as well along with some Ginger beear. I have to say the food is very good. This is a small, clean establishment with 3 tables. If you are searching for something spicy and good, definitely check this place out.

Indian Star Restaurant & Sweets420 Sixth Street, New Westminster
Food lacked freshness
Submitted Saturday, April 17, 2010 - 12:50pm [Dine in]

I was hoping after reading the reviews here that I would find a good Indian restaurant. I'm surprised by the number of good reviews here. The food in general was not fresh. We order beef kabobs, butter chicken, aloo tikki, & palak paneer. The only thing that was fresh was perhaps the aloo tikki (fried potato patty) and the naan. Having had quality indian meals around the globe, I have to say the food here lacked quality and flavor. The butter chicken was a huge disappointment. The chicken should be tandoored (in a clay oven) and then cooked in curry sauce. The saag (palak paneer) in general was not up to par. And the beef kabob? Let's put it this way, I suspect it was pre-cooked and then cooked on a hot plate. It was just OK. If you are looking for good indian cuisine, look elsewhere in Vancouver or Surrey.

Jamaican Pizza Jerk2707 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Food was very average but setting was neat
Submitted Sunday, April 11, 2010 - 11:07am [Dine in]

I've driven by this place numerous times and decided to check it out this weekend. We ordered a Jamaican pizza and a curried oxtail dish for lunch. The oxtail dish was an average tasting dish with some Caribbean flavors. The pizza was not good. The pizza crust looked and tasted as though it was pre-made or store bought. The toppings were overpowered by the cheddar cheese. I also had expected the food to be more spicy. They did offer side sauces which were ok. The drinks were good and were imported i.e. Ginger Beer etc. The restaurant had a nice setting and it made you feel like you were in Jamaica with cool background music. The servers were very friendly. Overall, I really thought the food could be improved. It was a major letdown for us given we have sampled Carribean food back East in Ottawa and also on our vacations to the tropics where food was so full of vibrant flavors and spice.

Pho Duy1996 Kingsway, Vancouver
Excellent Pho Place!
Submitted Wednesday, January 27, 2010 - 12:38pm [Dine in]

I discovered this place on the corner of Kingsway and Victoria recently. I tried the beef ball pho. They serve the pho with bean sprouts, basil and lime just how we like it. All the side sauces i.e. hot sauces etc are available at each table. A great soup indeed. We go to a lot of other Pho restaurants throughout Richmond but this pho was extremely good. Since then I have been there 2 more times and I brought along family. Others ordered the grilled pork, etc but that was below average in taste. My husband ordered the vegetable soup dish which was also great. This is a clean but very modest place. I highly recommend the soups.

Tang Thai1626 W Broadway, Vancouver
Excellent Thai Food Finally
Submitted Friday, November 13, 2009 - 9:24pm [Dine in]

Coming from Ottawa, we were spoiled with all the excellent Thai restaurants. After having been in Vancouver for 3 years, we could not find a Thai restaurant that was on par with something out East. Finally! We find a great Thai restaurant which has the flavours bang on. All the dishes were cooked to perfection. The only negative was the fried banana dish we ordered for dessert. The crust was hard. Other than that the flavours fused well and we look forward to visiting again.

Mis Trucos1141 Davie Street, Vancouver
Amazing Food
Submitted Monday, September 14, 2009 - 10:38pm [Dine in]

My husband and I went to Mis Trucos last night. This restaurant is set in an old character home on Davies next to Shoppers Drug Mart. It is easy to miss the restaurant so look for a sign displayed on the street. We decided to eat outdoors on the patio where they have heated lamps for your comfort. Now for the food.... We ordered Coca with mortadella, the slow cooked egg with ham, lobster risotto, and lamb with chick peas & chorizo and for dessert we had the mango canneloni mascarpone. The food was impeccable! The lobster risotta was my favorite and was so full of flavor. Everything was absolutely perfect! The general manager and waitress were also very informative and helpful and at the end of the night we met the chef on our way out. The setting in this character home also made for a very unique experience. The surprising part was this restaurant is only 1 month old and the owner and employees have done a great job. We give this place a two thumbs up and we will definitely be back again. I highly recommend this place!

Ok Food
Submitted Sunday, September 13, 2009 - 4:59pm [Dine in]

A group of us dined at Cru last summer. We decided to order all the items off the menu instead of the 3 course meal. The wine selections were good. The food in general was a solid good but nothing to write home about. Nothing stood out. The service was average. I wouldn't recommend this place. If interested in small plates try out Twisted Fork or Tapestry. These places are solid in terms of service and excellent cuisine & wines.
