Glad we gave this place a 2nd try ...
Submitted Friday, May 3, 2013 - 3:54pm [Dine in]

What a difference a few months cane make....!

Food is now even better than previous owners and cooks.. Same big portion, but full of flavour, sauces aren't watery and land..Meat is meat and great quality...

Service is as always quick, efficient and very polite..

Still on the sparse side of decor, but we weren't there to stare at the walls, we were there for great food..

Exceptional value for dollar point and huge portions ..

Keep up the great food quality guys !

Great Dinning experience !
Submitted Monday, March 7, 2011 - 11:23am [Dine in]

Great food and service ! Value is pretty good for what you get, but now we know to order an appy to share.

Hands down the best spring rolls around...bar none !

Chicken wings are great and come with a really great zesty and citrus flavored dipping sauce.

Service is fast and very friendly, menu is well laid out and has lots to choose from .

It is a little bit out of the way but worth the little detour to get here.

Ban Chok Dee Thai Cuisine20563 Douglas Crescent, Langley
Could have been much better
Submitted Thursday, September 30, 2010 - 2:41pm [Dine in]

Decided to give Ban Chok Dee Thai, a try after reading the reviews on Dine Here.

We both had our lunch hours free this fine Thursday, so we met up for lunch. The decor of this quaint eatery is warm and very inviting, the host/waiter was very friendly and always there to refill our water glasses. We both took advantage of the 8.99 Lunch specials to "TRY" the food.

We were served a small bowl of frozen mixed Cauliflower and Broccoli cooked to mush in chicken stock as our starter soup.....No hot and soup soup........

Our specials arrived a few minutes later, She had the L5- Green Curry with veg and pork, I had L2 Pad Kra Pao with chicken.

Her Green curry was SOOOOOOO sweet it could have been served for desert, rice was fluffy, the srping roll was sitting in a pool of water compliments of the lettuce salad on the plate so she didn't eat it as it was a soggy mess.

My Pad Kra Pao, was ok...Not great or good, but ok.....Rather taste less and bland and the chicken had that boiled in water taste. My salad was just a few pieces of iceburg lettuce and carrot slivers with no dressing what so ever. My wife wasn't missing anything by skipping the spring roll as this too was ok, but tasteless.

All in all, it was OK, but not great or good or worthy of a repeat visit.

Your mileage may vary....

I wish I had a time machine !
Submitted Monday, August 16, 2010 - 10:14am [Dine in]

I wish I could go back in time, just a few hours before we ate at Fork N' Chopsticks.....

About 30 mintues after eating our different meals, all 4 of us made the mad dash(s) to the rest rooms in the movie theater....

The only common items we each shared were the egg rolls which were very very greasy, and the chicken chowmein which was cold and flavorless.

Our server was less than happy to be working on an hot Saturday, it showed in her interactions with the customers. We asked if they had any low sodium soy sauce and she didn't even say a word, she just walked off and didn't come back until it was time to clear the plates.

Food was generally cold and very very greasy and tasteless.

Not sure who or where the booths came from but the nearly vertical backs and rock hard bottoms were very hard on our backs and legs ( all 4 of us are Career Firefighters ) so were used to sitting on hard bench seats, but this was crazy.

Not sure what gives, but none of us will be coming back every again.

That was horrible
Submitted Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 2:00pm [Dine in]

Needed a quick bite to eat while the wife was finishing her shopping marathon. Decided to give the chinese place a try.

MISTAKE #!, not asking for a taste of each of the 3 itmes on my 3 item combo plate first
MISTAKE #2, not keeping the recipt
MISTAKE #3, eating more than 1 bite of that crap.

I took the Sweet and Sour Pork, with Honey Garlic chicken and Beef and Greens with Stir Fried Rice.

The rice was cold and hard like eating little pellets
The sweet and sour pork was glumpy, cold and sickly sickly sweet
The Honey garlic chicken was super sickly sweet and there wasn't any chicken in the 2 bites i had taken
The Beef was so salty I could barely swallow it and the greens were stringy and sandy.

WHen I brought the food back up to the counter to complain, I was told that they couldnt do anything without the recipt. After making quite a fuss, the 4 people in line getting there food orders filled, just walked away. So at least some good came of this all.

ABout 45 minutes later I was making a mad dash for the restrooms as the rest of my body didn't like the food either.

Steer clear of this dump, not sure how they pass health inspection with food this cold and disgusting.

$16 bucks for this ????
Submitted Thursday, April 22, 2010 - 1:53pm [Dine in]

Cold, greasy and tasteless were the only ways we could use to describe our meals.

It did not matter what we ate, it was all the same. Except for the Sweet and Sour pork, which was full of grissle and chewy. The spring rolls are nothing more that Ramen noodles with the seasoning pkg wrapped up and cooked. Wonton soup was luke warm and tasteless....

What a shame for $16 per person.....

Yet the food the kitchen staff were enjoying only a few tables away, was piping hot and smelled wonderful

3rd time wasn't the Charm !
Submitted Monday, January 25, 2010 - 12:39pm [Dine in]

Only a few minute walk from our house, and the previous 2 times visited were worthy of a return visit.

This 3rd visit however was woefully lacking in both food, portion and service.

Our drink orders were taken very very quickly, but for some strange reason my wife's drink didn't show up until the we asked our waitress who came to take our order 8-10 minutes later.

I ordered the 6 oz Rib-eye medium rare. She ordered the 12 oz Sirloin plater medium rare as well. My steak came cooked VERY VERY VERY WELL DONE, a small dessert spoon sized portion of mashed potatoes and a single small onion ring. Hers came a few minutes later minus everything except the steak itself, which was swimming in a pool of liquid.

We commented on the lack of sides and wrongly cooked steaks, both items were quickly wisked away back to the kitchen for re-cook. The manager ( lovely lady ) came out to find out what was wrong and to correct it. She offered us 2 garden salads while we waited for our meals to be re-prepared.

Deja VU. no sides and over cooked steaks. By this time, we were both tired, and hungry, so we decided to just settle our bill for what we had eaten and drank. Took forever to find someone to get our bill and then for someone to process our debit card.

The manager was clearly embarassed and simply gave us a nod when we were walking out the door.

To add insult to injury, the person processing our debit card had the gall to ask us if we would be leaving a tip !!!!

We will not be back, as our time is valuable and our money is hard earned. There are other establishments out there that realize this fact and we will be giving them our time and money from now on.

Pantry Restaurant, The19705 Fraser Highway, #130, Langley
Food Quality and Portion size declining !
Submitted Monday, November 16, 2009 - 11:00am [Dine in]

The wife and I used to love going to the Pantry on SUnday mornings, to spend sometime together and enjoy a great breakfast, but the last few times visited, the food quality has noticable declined and the portions offered have shrunk. Really greasy food, grissily sausages, bacon that is more fat that meat etc...... even the eggs are truly nasty. nearly white looking yolks and a somewhat funky smell. Seems that they must be sourcing cheaper products to save of cost, while the portions are gettting smaller and they prices are rising ! I can understand a decent $$$ increase to offset food costs, but a nearly $5 increase to the cost of a buffet, with poor food quality and little to no food being brought out,, is just plain wrong. Even the regular menu is suffering. we had some moldy toast and barely edible leather sausages. We have written off The Pantry Langley as a place to eat. Sorry to see it decline so quickly....

OMG, that couldn't possibly be real food ?!?!
Submitted Monday, June 8, 2009 - 11:03pm [Dine in]

First appy to arrive was the half dozen zesty wings..... Half dozen means 6 right.... wrong... We got 4, and the zesty sauce is good ole bottled hot sauce.
Second appy to arrive was the calamari, half were still frozed solid yet the other half were screaming hot and as chewy as rubber bands.

She ordered the Peppercorn steak medium... It came super well done, with some kind of plastic looking and textured grey colored sauce that managed to stick to itself like the pudding skins we had as kids. Her salad was dressed in just Oil, nothing else. Her potatoes were burnt to a crisp and the rice side was raw and undercooked.

At this point our waitress came over to see how things were going, we informed her, and all we got was a giggle and she walked away. showed up 10 minutes later with another order of wings to replace the short order we first received. This time the wings were blood raw.

I ordered the classic burger. NOTHING CLASSIC ABOUT IT. It tasted like liver, had no toppings except a bun & piece of lettuce. I asked for ketchup but was informed there was none in the establishment. My plate arrived without the salad or potatoes, so she once again giggled and went back to the kitchen. What she brought back couldn't be considered food. There was a small side plate with some, burnt yet mushy greasy lumps when picked at turned out to be roasted potatoes, when I told her to take then back she asked why, I told her and she commented with " Thats the best the kitchen can do". My salad had more oil on/in it than my V8 parked in the lot outside....

My Burger was horrible, tasted and smelled like liver, and greasy to boot.

The staff were confused, management were un-apologetic and didn't seem to care that food was raw, undercooked, over cooked and generally horrible and un-edible.

As we waited for our bill to arrive, we watched server after server bringing back plate after plate of food to the kitchen.

Steer clear, this place could possibly kill you.....

This isn't FOOD !
Submitted Wednesday, January 28, 2009 - 12:48pm [Dine in]

Cold Food, wrong order, horrible customer service, slow prep and miserly sized portions with sky high prices for what you get.

Double check your order before you leave the restaurant, otherwise your out of luck and they really don't care.

Egg rolls are greasy and mushy, pork is just breading and grissel, sauces are either cold and lumpy or just in-edible.

Steer clear of the WOKBOX.

What a horrible dissapointment
Submitted Monday, December 15, 2008 - 12:06pm [Dine in]

After our first visit that wasn't the greatest dining experience we have shared together, my wife and I decided to give it a second try several weeks later.
Both times we have been here, we have been the only ones in the establisment (that should have been the 1st warning clue). This last time around, we were also alone for the whole 90 minutes, no take out, no walk ins. The entire place is FREEZING, the have these little plug in electric heaters that other than glow orange don't do a whole lot to warm the place up.

Service is fast ( no one else to wait on ), but the food quality is very very poor and sloppy. All the sushi we had was so vinegary tasting we had to leave some behind, the tempura was hot and crisp, but within a minute was stone cold due to the temperature inside the place. THe spicy salmon cones were made with canned salmon and some sort of hot sauce.. All the portions were so very very small you could barely taste what was there in front of you. A few time during the meal service we had to keep asking for HOT tea, as the pot would cool to room temp after a few minutes.

THe only interesting part of the evening was a game we played called "COUNT THE SPELLING MISTAKES". If you do dare to tempt the food gods and venture into the questionable restaurant, grab a take out menu and card, and count the spelling mistakes.. We stopped at 8 on the business card and 15 on the take out menu.

Food was really that bad, Service was ok, but the quality and content of food was so poor there is no way to make up for it.

The menu is so very small in selection that you only have a few choices to make .

STAY AWAY and save your gut and your money !

Not the greatest !!!
Submitted Wednesday, November 12, 2008 - 6:51pm [Dine in]

Like the previous reviewer stated, HUGE bill for not that much food.

Super SUper noisy on a tuesday night. We could barely hear one another across the table as the place felt like a rock concert it was so noisy.
1 Appy, 2 entrees, 1 Glass of house red, 1 Glass of water and no desert, racked us up a bill of $149.

Caeser Salads were really lousy and when we complained, we were told that the "NEW" guy handn't found his groove yet............Excuse ME.......

My wife's dinner came our a full 10 minutes ahead of mine, so I told her to eat it while it was hot.

When my meal finially arrived, my steak was wrong and it was the smallest meal I have ever seen.

There are better places to get a steak at a better price, where you don't have to shout to talk to your table mate

Costco Restaurant20499 64th Ave, Langley
Hit and Miss !
Submitted Monday, September 15, 2008 - 11:03am [Dine in]

Hit and Miss service along with hot or cold food makes Costco food court a dodgy coin toss place to eat. Some times the ice cream is smooth and creamy, sometimes if fells like there is sand in it, pizza is also hit and miss with the levels of grease varying greatly. THe hot dog combo seems to be the most median product they carry.

Just be warned, service can be a bit lacking and surley at times or you can have some really super sweet people take your order and process it !

Submitted Monday, June 9, 2008 - 10:16am [Dine in]

All we wanted was light, quick dinner on a saturday night before watching a movie.

What we got instead, was insulted, wrong meals, cold food, oily food and wrong bill.

Our drinks never arrived, even after asking more than 4 times, our spring rolls were cold and dripping in grease and when we complained we got a 2 minute tirade and lecture on HOW we wouldn't know good Vietnamese food if we were in Vietnam.

We decided to cut our losses and just pay up and leave, but the bill the waiter/host drew up was bogus and wrong. We got charged for 2 drinks each and food we never ordered or received. When we debated the fact that "THIS IS WHAT YOU ATE" a customer a another table came up and stated, that the bill was theirs and they got our bill. AFter much shouting and lecturing, we arrived at a mutual deal, that they tear up the bill and we NEVER eat or step foot in there again.

That works for us.

Did I mention, that the people who got our bill also had to fight to get a correct bill !

What a difference a Year can make !!
Submitted Monday, May 12, 2008 - 5:43pm [Dine in]

That was our last visit to this hit and miss Pub ! Our fist visit is noted as the first review on this pub. WE gave them a second try and were more than pleasntly suprised with all the lacking aspects of the first review.

Our last outing to Dublins Crossing was worse than our first visit. For a quite Mothers day evening, with about 6 people in the whole place you would expect some service and care, but none was shown. Our drink order was wrong and never corrected, our Meal order came lacking the sides, which was rectified after asking several times. The wife had the Traditional Pub pie with a house salad. The pub pie arrived with fries and both were nearly stone cold. I ordered the BBQ Guinness ribs with Irish mashed potatoes. Mine arrived with fries as well. We waited for cutlery, our drink and our sides to show up, but after waiting and waiting I simply helped my self to cutlery at the bar. When my wifes replacment pub pie with salad finially showed up we realiazied why this place was so empty. Her Pie was frozen in the Center and just heated in the Microwave, HOW THE HECK IS THAT EVEN CONSIDERED FOOD !!!!! My mashed potatoes were get this "POWDERED....." Powered potatoes in an Irish Pub, my taste buds were confirmed they were powered when my fork found a clump of still dry potato flakes in the middle. THe ribs were boiled to the point that they were mush, and the BBQ sauce was used to cover up anything else they needed to hide. When we finially decided to get the heck out of there, we were informed that they DO NOT have Interac, but they have a house ATM @ $2.00 per transaction. We we settled up the bill the waitress had the gall to ask if there was a tip, I told her to get it back from the house ATM, and walked out, feeling sick and really ticked off at what could have been a really great pub !
STAY CLEAR, or go just for drinks and nothing else !

Terrific Chinese food right off the #1 Highway
Submitted Monday, April 21, 2008 - 12:48pm [Dine in]

We have eaten here a few times in the past few months, each and every time we visit this restaurant it is very CLEAN, the food is always fresh, hot never greasy and FAST coming to the table.
The egg rolls are incredible !!! I never wait long enough for them to cool down and always burn the roof of my mouth.

Portions are ample based on price paid. Service is really good, fast and friendly.

Take out order fly out during both lunch and dinner.

The dining room for eat-in is just nice and cozy but could accomodate around 50-60 people.

Our Suggestion, would be to order 2 of the different 1 person combo plates to try the various dishes without spending a lot of money. That way you get to sample 6 dishes for the price of 2.

Don't forget to order some Egg rolls.

Submitted Tuesday, August 28, 2007 - 12:54pm [Dine in]

Lets start off from the moment we walked thru the doors with reservations for 7 pm. FIrst they said they couldn't find our reservation, they they found it, then our table was ready and waiting, then our table suddenly had guests who were about to leave.
7:45 rolled around a we were finially seated.
Our drink order was taken the wrong drinks arrived.
Our dinner order was taken. Our appitizers arrived 25 minutes later. The warm Goat cheese with pita chips was ice cold and frozen in the center, the Coconut prawns, all 3 of them were dripping with grease and over cooked.
When our dinners finially arrived the portions were so uterly small that we couldn't belive it. I made the mistake of ordering the Lamb special 2 playing card slices of nearly Lamb Shoulder that were so tough and chewy that I had to send it back.
My wife orderd the blackened snapper, but instead got a chicken dish. When we finailly were able to track down our server, she was very plesant about everything and returned our meals to the kitchen. 30 minutes later 2 new dishes arrived and yet again a screwed up service.
This time my rare steak was so overcooked, you could have pounded nails with it, my wifes pasta was one huge sticky clump.
We sent the 2nd round back and decided we would just have dessert and then grab a burger on the way home. Did I mention that this was our wedding anniversary dinner !!!!
The dessert came, they looked good but,, my tirimasu was still frozen solid. It went back and a chocolate something came out. My wife took a bite and left the rest of it there. Meanwhile around us people were sending back food that was frozen or overcooked. How is that for fine dining !

Save you money, eat somewhere elese, where everthing isn't frozen and actually prepared in house

The food here is outstanding, but the service is very hit and miss. Not to mention that the Sushi chef can be very grumpy to downright angry some days. The portions of food are very large and a good value for your money. Make certain you leave a tip regardless, We have been on the recieving end of the ANGRY Sushi chef following us out ot our car and screaming at us for not leaving a tip.

Upscale and Wonderful
Submitted Tuesday, May 1, 2007 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

I stumbled upon LUXE by shear luck. Only a few blocks from our house and right across the street from Willowbrook Mall, lies this NEW and wonderful restaraunt. We were greated by a most gracious host ( who happens to be the owner ). We were told of the daily specials and they server even made sure we knew what some of the more exotic dishes were. We opted for the DIM SUM menu this early sunday morning. WOW is the the only way to describe it. Piping hot, full of fresh and familiar flavours, crsipy and savoury. Some of the best DIm sum we have ever eaten outside of Canton.
The deep fried squid was outstanding along with the spring rolls.

LUXE is an upscale Chinese Seafood restaruant. The servers are excellent and will answer any questions you have, then check bcak often and they will drop off new dishes for you to sample if your a regular.

The interior of the restaraunt is crisp and clean. The chairs are very comfortable and the ambience is terrific.

Give it a try and write a review !
