Okay for Take-Out, Usually.
Submitted Sunday, September 13, 2009 - 5:14pm [Dine in]

A few months ago this would have been a much better review, but on our last order the pan-fried dumplings were "off". Really, really nasty, smelled horrible, etc. When we called to let them know, (we wanted to make sure that they didn't send any more of that batch out to others!) the girl just said, "Oh, okay, we'll give you a credit on your next order". No "Sorry"...nothing like that. I was not impressed.

My husband loves the chicken balls, they are pretty awesome. The dumplings are (usually) delicious. The fried rice is blah; lots of frozen mixed vegetables, and the pork often smells and tastes old, kind of "fridgey" if you know what I mean. Vegetable dishes are carelessly made, and heavy with starch.

Were it not for hubby's addiction to the chicken balls, I'd be shopping around for better Chinese takeout, but for now we're still ordering, with caution, from King's Kitchen.

Roast Bistro Cafe & Grill22456 Lougheed Hwy, #102, Maple Ridge
A Wonderful Addition to the Maple Ridge Dining Scene!

We stopped in for lunch at the Roast Bistro after seeing the "Pulled Pork" sign, and we were delighted with our experience.

This is a moderately sized restaurant, but much larger than it appears from the street. It's comfortable and clean. Service was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable; in fact the owner served us.

The menu has many choices;( in fact I think that it could probably be edited a bit. But that's just my opinion.) I had the pulled pork sandwich, which was excellent. Well cooked pork, with lots of crunchy bits, gently mixed with tasty BBQ sauce was piled on a soft and fresh white bun, with some cool fresh coleslaw on top. I asked for 'light' BBQ sauce, next time I'll ask for more. There was a llittle pot of homemade baked beans on the side, and a huge pile of onion rings.

Hubby had a "Bistro Burger", a generous patty loaded with cheese, mushrooms and bacon, excellent sauce, and fresh lettuce, etc. His burger was accompanied by homemade french fries, some of the best that we've tasted since moving from Ontario.

This is that rare find in Maple Ridge, a small independent restaurant with an owner who is interested in serving actual home cooked food, prepared with care and thoughtfulness. Before we left he brought us a little tasting sample of the ribs that were slowly cooking for the evening service; covered with a fresh homemade dry rub, they were incredible. Had I not been stuffed full of pulled pork, I'd have been tempted to just park myself in my chair and wait for dinner.

We're going to be regulars at the Roast Bistro, I give it full marks.

Austin Fish & Chips22709 Lougheed Hwy, #690, Maple Ridge
Dependably Excellent Fish and Chips
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.
