My friend invited us to join for a dinner at 'this new place which is very good'. They had been there only once; and were full of praise. We joined them on Saturday evening with skepticism in heart. And we are so happy to say WE WERE WRONG.
An absolutely incredible place - to start, there's ample parking (even for Saturday evening, and despite there being many popular restaurants in the same area); and then the entrance and the decoration. The service which, initially a bit tardy, was soon very efficient and prompt. We tasted various 'vegetarian' dishes; and for each one, we had nothing but the praise. Raman, our attendant, was very helpful in his recommendations; and of course the service.
I would be visiting this place again - soon. And recommend this to anyone who would like to have a good evening out - either with that special one, or with the whole family.

Northern Tadka has changed its name (and location) to Tadka Taste of India - at #104 - 13030 76 Avenue, Surrey. A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet - and so is the quality of food and service. Northern Tadka or Taste of India - the brain and the 'tadka' remain above par - excellent!
The new place is significantly smaller than the earlier location - so on a busy day, getting a place could be a problem. But bearing in mind the treats waiting for you accompanied by personalized service - it's worth the wait.
Do give the 'daal' a try. With special 'tadka' it's one of my favourites.

Full dinner (including wine) - and out in less than 30 minutes

Amazing! Speak of express (and rushed) service - today's mother's day dinner will be one of the most memorable ones. We (party of four) were in the restaurant at 6:30 p.m. (beat the rush) and ordered wine (the server insisted on us placing the order for the food too immediately); and got the drinks and the food delivered at the same time.
Several (and repeated) visits by the server asking us "What else?" put us off a little bit. And before we could even finish our drinks and food, the junior server started clearing our cutlery (and the table); and the bill came too promptly. No desserts - "just get out so we can put some more people in your place". Reminded us of the assembly type of food restaurant. Eat, pay and run!
Well, the food is really very good - so next time, I shall never go to this place on a busy day. And if we go, it will ONLY be for the good food.
For service, I guess I shall have to go to some other place.
