Favorite Langley Pizza Place
Submitted Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 10:45pm [Take-out]

I found this place on a list of god knows how many pizza places in langley one night, and i'm happy I did. I went on their website before I ordered and wow, they have almost 75 different kinds of pizzas on there. that menu is not really available in the store so you'll have to get it online. Some of their super specialty pizzas are a little expensive but when I chose my 2 i wanted I called in to order and the guy let me know it was any pizza, any size, any number of toppings for $8.99.. jackpot. haha. so for about 20 bucks I got two large pizzas, which were awesome. crust was great too. tons of toppings, including weird ones like ricotta cheese and things like that, but gave it a taste I've never had on pizza before! I will agree with the other reviewer, I had no idea where this place was, it's very hard to find and the sign is so small

Amazing Pizza
Submitted Wednesday, August 8, 2012 - 10:38pm [Take-out]

After developing what I'd like to call a habit of eating bad food, i took to trying to sample pizza from as many places as I could. although this review is for the Port Coquitlam location, It's the same owners/menu as this place. I called and ordered two mediums and was informed that I could get larges for the same price, hell, why not? I ordered a Chicken Ranch and a Butter Chicken pizza. both were awesome. crust was crunchy and chewy at the same time. toppings were loaded on. lots and lots of chicken too. the lady on the phone asked me if I wanted my butter chicken pizza "indian style" and I guess that is when they add ginger and cilantro onto it, and let me tell you, I will be ordering this again next week. just awesome.

Great Tikka Masala
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 8:21pm [Take-out]

After reading all the great reviews on here I decided to try it for myself.

Being a fan of butter chicken I tend to never stray away, but I decided to try the chicken tikka masala (extra spicy) it was awesome. definitely not as greasy and heavy feeling as the butter chicken dishes I've tried. the side order of rice I got must have been 2 pounds, there's so much.

also got an order of garlic na'an and regular na'an bread. both were delicious. fluffy and chewy at the same time. the veggie pakora was very tasty, and the portions were huge. there's probably 30 pieces of pakora in this take-out container. I'm excited for leftovers tomorrow

you also get a 10% discount when you pick it up, so for all this it was just over 20 bucks. i'll definitely be going back

Love It!
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 5:14pm [Take-out]

I don't know why but i seriously can't get enough of this place. I've been going to this place a couple times a week for the last 5 years.

I can understand what some of the bad reviews are saying, the inside of the place kind of creeps me out. it seems a little dirty and the guys making your donairs seem like they hate you. I think the one review compared it to the soup nazi from seinfeld and that's dead on..

the chicken and lamb are perfectly spiced and the sauces are great. the consistency is sometimes up and down, sometimes you get the older guy and he loads it up and it's the size of a football, and other times i get the younger guy and it's so tiny i could eat two of them.

Try The Volcano Roll..
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 5:08pm [Dine in]

I work across the street and have been to this place many times, and it's always consistent.

their special rolls are huge but are a little expensive but worth it. their gyoza is also delicious and seems like it's made fresh, i could be wrong though. the servers are always friendly but sometimes are forgetful. I've called once or twice to place a take out order and been asked to hold for a second, and nobody ever comes back to the phone..

Favorite Pub On Commercial
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 5:05pm [Dine in]

I lived two blocks away from this pub for about 6 months and probably went there at least once a week. although it seems like recently with their new menu their prices are higher but the food is still great.

their selection of on tap beers / ciders is great. i like a place with strongbow on tap.. the servers are pretty friendly and after a while knew what I wanted to eat and drink. I always get the same thing.. chicken pot pie. it sounds like a strange thing to order at a pub, but seriously, you have to try this thing. I think this might just be my favorite meal in vancouver..

tuesday is wing night, and is 50 cents a wing. that seems a little high but their wings are huge and the flavor is good. if you really hate yourself, try the 911 wings, they're painful but delicious.

Great Commercial Drive Pizza
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 5:00pm [Take-out]

I used to live two blocks away from this place and would stop by here at least once a week.

I've tried at least 10 of the different kinds and all their pizza's are pretty good but the mushroom / capicollo takes the cake for sure. the beef and blue cheese is also delicious, and seriously, even if you hate blue cheese, try a slice. I hate it too but the pizza is great!

the service is friendly and the prices are decent. good place

Good Take-Out
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 4:56pm [Take-out]

After reading many negative reviews about the service here, I decided to order take out on my way home from work. This way, I could try the food and also skip the bad service.

I ordered the butter chicken (spicy), veggie pakora, paneer pakora and na'an. the veggie pakora was awesome, not too greasy, and perfect amount of seasoning. the butter chicken was just right, i like my food to be so hot i sweat sometimes and this was great! the na'an bread was fresh and delicious. the only complaint I have, is with the paneer pakora. I've never actually ordered the paneer before from anywhere but I swear that it tastes like an armpit. It was so bad I only ate a few pieces while and ended up throwing the rest directly into the garbage. like I said, maybe this is just the way paneer tastes, or maybe it's the paneer from here. regardless, I'm too afraid to order it from anywhere again to find out.

All in all, a really good meal, good spice and they give you 15% off if you pick it up. I'll be going back

Best Commercial Drive 'Zza
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 4:49pm [Dine in]

After living close to Commercial Drive for over 6 months I've been trying to get to as many of the pizza places as I can. This place has got to be my favorite.

From the minute they open till closing time, their pizza is always fresh. each slice is so loaded with toppings they're almost falling apart, but in a good way! the owners (I assume) are an older couple and are the nicest people working on this street. the last time I was there my bill came to $6 and I gave the guy a $10 and told him to keep the rest and he wouldn't, he said it was too big of a tip.

I've recently had to move away from the drive but everytime i do go back down there, i always stop here, hungry or not. (hey there's always a cardboard box for the drive home)

Taste of India Restaurant, A1282 Robson Street, Vancouver
Keep On Walking..
Submitted Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 4:41pm [Dine in]

Normally I've always eaten at the All Indian about 300 feet away from this place, but it was nice out and they had an outdoor seating place so we were lured in by that so we could stay out and enjoy the weather.

the service right off was alright, got our menus and drinks and ordered a veggie pakora. out of the probably 5-10 different places i've tried pakora at, this has to be the worst of them all. 6 pieces, 3 small cauliflower and 3 huge slices of potato covered super greasy, black batter. I've never eaten something so bland in my life, the only taste they had was the raita i was dipping them in..

for our main course I ordered the butter chicken (extra spicy) and garlic na'an while my mother ordered the specialty na'an (na'an with chicken peppers and onions in it) and the baingan bharta, an eggplant dish. the butter chicken was alright, but nowhere near spicy. the garlic na'an was delicious and the bharta was decent. the specialty na'an smelled like a pizza, and tasted like a bland microwaveable pizza with no tomato sauce. not to say it wasn't good, it was tasty, but was definitely not something i'd order again.

the bill was over $50 just for the two of us, and I know it's robson street, but that's still a little high. I probably won't be going back here.

Expensive Deep Fried Fish..
Submitted Friday, May 6, 2011 - 4:01pm [Take-out]

People have been telling me to go to this place since I moved here 2 years ago, so i finally made it. I was surprised at how busy the place was, it was pouring rain and still had about 20 people huddled under the awning. normally if a place is that busy, there's a reason.

i got the halibut and chips and wanted to try one of their fish tacos so i ordered that as well. for $25 that is one hell of an expensive lunch, just for 2 small pieces of fish, some greasy potato sticks and a small fish burrito. the fish was awesome, don't get me wrong, but it tasted like any other deep fried halibut available in the city. fries were regular fries and the fish taco was pretty average

lots of people complain about the service here but i thought the girls working there were very friendly even though it was such a dreary day. what, do you want them to ask you how your day's been going? that's like complaining the mcdonalds window girls don't pay you enough attention

Coza! Tuscan Grill20065 Langley Bypass, Langley
Go across the street to Olive Garden..
Submitted Saturday, March 26, 2011 - 2:40pm [Dine in]

I haven't written many reviews because I just don't make the time for it, but, for this place, and to save whoever is reading this the unsatisfying experience, I just felt it was my duty to fellow foodies

Like many people that were there i'm sure, we were turned away from the olive garden due to the fact it's always super busy, and when we got to Coza, it looked nice inside and was just as busy, so i thought, obviously this is a great place too.. wrong..

it took about 20 minutes for the girl we ordered drinks from, we both got girly belini's.. which tasted like watered down minutemaid peach juice, but whatever, some places just don't make them good. so we ordered our dinners and started our long wait to food time. the free salad and bread was the one decent part about the meal, until the girl accidently poured olive oil and vinegar all over my shoes.. just put it on a plate like earls does, don't try and be fancy with an upside down cup. i noticed my order, the lobster and scampi linguine, make it's way to the warming area and take a seat while my girlfriends was just being started. she ordered the Spaghetti Alla Fra’Diavolo, which sounds great, but was not. our food finally came after 15 minutes of keeping itself warm and for the 26.99 that my bowl of 99 cent pasta cost, i thought i would be at least getting quite a bit of seafood.. i got 3 shrimp and a tablespoon of lobster. my girlfriends dish tasted like campbells alphabet soup..

if you're looking for pasta for dinner, seriously, spend the 2 dollars and get michelenas from the frozen section of safeway down the street, it will be 100% better.

Processed Cheddar Cheese in a Donair..
Submitted Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 1:26pm [Dine in]

I've eaten at the majority of the shops on commercial drive, and they all have something good and different to offer you, but this place has the worst donair i've ever tried. i'm sure theres other places out there with worse, but i havent been there so this is it.

the meat was bland and crunchy, the tzatziki was watery and the worst part of all was when i asked for cheese he opened the fridge and took out a processed cheddar cheese packet and stuffed that into my meal.. what mediterranean meal comes with processed cheese.. terrible, just terrible.

and for a super beef donair at 7.50 a pop, thats higher than you'll pay on granville street after the bar

oh, and its 2010, maybe its time for this place to get a debit/credit machine
