Mahek Restaurant15133 #10 Hwy, Surrey
Nice looking place with good food
Submitted Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 8:02am [Dine in]

Went here with the family and another couple for dinner. We all ordered the dinner preselected meals and I ordered the deluxe dinner meal on the first page of the menu. I believe that this is for the customer who do not know what Indian food really taste so that they have the tried and true dishes to play it safe. Dishes like butter chicken, some dish with chick peas, tandoori chicken and the deluxe dinner had lamb curry plus both dishes included naans. The food came out nice and hot. The taste was very good and the portion was a bit smaller than if you ordered it by itself. Pretty good value if you want to dab into Indian cuisine. It might not look like a lot of food when they place it on the table, but the richness of the dishes will fill you up in no time. The ambiance was quite nice. Modern and clean. Parking can be a little tight, just make sure you park in the middle parking spot as there is not much room for mistakes. Will return in the future as we left with a positive experience.

Nickel and dime you to death
Submitted Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 7:53am [Take-out]

Went here to pick-up some take out sushi as I was craving it and hope that the place changed back to the way it original was. The dinner special went up in price by $.50 not a big deal but where it got me was how the owner (older Asian lady) would nickel and dime you for things that should be included. When you order the dinner special at the restaurant, you get miso soup, dynamite rolls, salmon sushi/sashimi, ebi sumono, assorted tempura. But when you order take it, you get short changed. First they charge extra for miso soup ($1.25) which should be included as it is when you dine in. Then they gave only two packets of soy sauce, which I found out once I opened it at home. There should at least been 4. They have a sign of $.10/packet for soy sauce on the cash register. Thank goodness the food tasted good, as that would have been the last straw. It is unfortunate that they try to squeeze every penny out of the customer. What nexts, $.50 for wasabi? or picked ginger? There are a lot of sushi restaurant in Surrey and it will be awhile before I return back

Jerusalem Grill15933 Fraser Hwy, #105, Surrey
Decent restaurant but there is a catch
Submitted Friday, February 7, 2014 - 6:03pm [Dine in]

Went here with the family to try something different and use up an Entertainment coupon. We order some dishes that came out hot and tasty. The server gave us some free soup to try out. The ambiance is decent but nothing to write home about. The value was good for what you pay for. The serveice was attentive and polite when we were there. I read the reviews from others and we had no issues with the service. When we came to pay, we had an Entertainment coupon, stating buy one entree and get the second for free. Well apparently they were screwed over by the Entertainment book as a lot of customers use the coupon and they were losing money. The server said that the books were being sold for less than the entree and customers were buying several books and using them. The server did not honor the free entree but gave us $5 off the bill. I was a little perturd by this as they should have something on their window to advise customers that they will not honor Entertainment coupons. Other than that, I would return for a future visit.

Fat Cow and Oyster Bar, The20178 96 Ave, Unit 4, Langley
Don't be fooled by the location, astonding restaurant tucked away in the industrial business area of Langley.
Submitted Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 11:57pm [Dine in]

Went here to celebrate a quiet bday. The location is off the beaten path and if you were not paying attention, you most likely pass it. It is located in a strip mall and does not seem to pretty at first till you go in. The decor is modern and reminds me of Milestone lounge type restaurant. That is where the comparison ends. The ambiance is brighter than the lounge type restaurant which is great as I want to see what I am eating. We ordered two cooked oysters, one had crumbled cheese and the other I believe was the "Fat Cow" or something like that relating to the restaurant. Both cooked oysters were delicious. We also ordered the shrimp/crab cake and the octopus appies. Both appies were very tasty and fresh. I ordered the 1lb mussels in a white wine cream sauce served over 3 slices of bread, my better half ordered the Fried chicken and waffles. Both dishes came out hot and fresh. My better half had 4 large pieces of chicken (leg, thigh, breast and wing) over 4 average size waffles. The syrup and the freshness was excellent. Mine 1lb of mussels was also very tasty. Original thought the sauce should have been more, but the amount ended up just right. I wished the bread was toasted with some garlic butter (in my opinion) but it just came out unbutter. I guess it was not to take away the tasted from the white wine sauce. We talked to the host/waitress and found out that the majority of all the products were from BC. From the organic chicken to the onions in the white wine sauce was local. Thus helps out the local farmers. The price was on the steeper side but was well worth it. I would not say that I would eat here all the time, but for special occasions or a night out, I would definitely return. I was impressed with the service as they kept my water full and was willing to answer any questions asked upon them. Will highly recommend and return.

Overrated Thai food
Submitted Thursday, December 12, 2013 - 11:03am [Dine in]

Went here with a friend for a late dinner. I ordered the Pad Thai and my friend ordered some salad that had beef strips. When the ordered came, my friend literally had some beef strips over some satay onions, green onions and lettuce only for $12. My pad thai was $14 and it was terrible. Not only was the sauce too sweet and tangy, It remind me of the chicken chilli sauce that you get at T & T. The scallops were the size of mini marshmellows. I was very disappointed and I did not believe that they try to pass this off as authentic Pad Thai. You can judge a restaurant by the staple food that they supposely prepare well. This restaurant failed miserably.

Afghan Chopan12888 80th Avenue, #104, Surrey
Expected a better experience than what I received
Submitted Monday, November 11, 2013 - 1:31pm [Dine in]

Better half was out of town and I always wanted to try Afghan food, so I venture to this restaurant bymyself. I had to look for the host to be seated as there was none to greet me when I entered. I ordered the lamb and beef kababs. Both dishes came with salad and naan. Both meats (beef and lamb) were prepared exactly the same way, spicy and hot. The meat was decent but the salad was nothing special. The salad reminds me of the bag salad you get at a grocery store. The naan was nothing special. The price for the lamb kabab was $15.95 while the beef kabab was $14,95. Fortunately I had the entertainment coupon as if I had to pay full price I would be unsatisfied as the whole experience for Afghan food was just plain ok. The service was slow, the waitress did not come by to refill my water while I was there. From this barely satisfactory experience, I would not rush back anytime soon.

Wonderful restaurant for the kids but the food was just satisfactory.
Submitted Sunday, October 20, 2013 - 12:53am [Dine in]

Went here on the recommendation of a friend who also has a child to this family restaurant. The restaurant has a great feel of Santa's workshop with the old wooden horses and the toy train that circles around the room. Neat decor. The service is outstanding. Prompt and friendly. We ordered the fish and chips and chicken lips with curly fries for the kids. My better half ordered the bacon cheese burger with fries ($13.95) and I ordered the 6oz steak anf garlic bread with Manhattan clam chowder soup ($16) The fish was a large serving along with the fries for one of our kid, The chicken lips (chicken nuggets) had only four in the dish along with some curly fries. Both kids lunches were $6. The fish and chips was awesome value but the chicken lips was pricey for what you got. Better half's bacon burger was ok. Nothing special as I took some bites out of it. It reminds me of a hambuger you would make at a Bar-B-Q. My steak was ordered rare (blue rare to be exact) and it came out medium rare, I mentioned it to our waiter and he quickly corrected that. After a few moments a new blue rare steak sandwich came out. I noticed that the prices were a bit more expensive than other burger joints by about a few dollars (depending what type of dish you want). The atompheres was fun and the kids seem to really enjoy the trains. Only the food could justified the higher prices. Fortunately we had a coupon which took a bit off the sting of the satisfactory meals. Overall I would consider coming back as long as I had a coupon as the prices are a bit too steep for the food.

Tasty Indian Bistro8295 Scott Road, Delta
Great looking Indian restaurant but the food does not match the decor.
Submitted Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

Went here with another couple for dinner on a weekend night. Upon entering the restaurant, I was quite impressed with the decor. It is very moderns and reminds me of Cactus Club. The service was prompt and decent. Nothing above and beyond. We ordered 3 vegetarian dishes (I do not recall all their names but one was mala kofta) and one non-vegetarian (butter chicken). The sauces in all the dishes were good, but after awhile they all tasted the same. We also ordered the garlic naan and the regular naan. I throughly enjoyed the garlic naan. We also also ordered deep fried tandori dish and somosa as appetizers. The deep fried tandori fish was good but the samosas was a expensive for around $10 you gotten two samosa. They were the vegetarian type with mostly potatoes. The bill was almost $100 with tip, Value wise, I had better. The ambiance is great. Next time I plan to order more meat dishes to see if the food tastes better as the vegetarians dishes were satisfactory.

AYCE lunch was ok
Submitted Tuesday, September 24, 2013 - 10:29am [Dine in]

Went here with the kids and a friend with his kid. We had the AYCE lunch. The sushi was satisfactory. The freshness was ok. I was expecting more. The spicy scallop roll, california and dynamite rolls was nothing outstanding. The tempura was hot and tasty. The children had the terayaki chicken on rice and they barely ate that. We were told that kids 4 and under were free thus we had 3 of them. When the bill came, they charged the 4yr old after all. Instead of arguing, we just paid. The dining experience was just ok, I would not go out of my way to venture to eat here again, if ever.

Plain tasting beef dip
Submitted Saturday, September 7, 2013 - 11:47am [Dine in]

Went here with the family and the inlaws for a quick lunch. The service was satisfactory but nothing to rave about. They managed to stick 6 adults and 4 young children in a single half circle booth. Some of the adults were sitting in the isle. They could have given us a bigger table or two average size tables considering the amount of people here. Well now to the food. I ordered the beed dip and I was very disappointed. Not only was the sandwich plain and had no flavour, but the au jou was bland as well, My better half had the turnkey club and she said that it was blah as well. For the price for those sandwiches and the cramp quaters, I expected more from a Chef Curry approved establishment. Sadly disappointed. I would rather eat elsewhere where you get some elbow room and a satisfied tummy.

Great new addition to Chinese food in Surrey
Submitted Thursday, August 8, 2013 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

Went here with the family for dinner. We ordered the Curry beef brisket with steam rice, Roasted pork and vegetables on steam rice, Fried beef with rice noodles and if you spend over $25 you can get deep fried garlic pork for $5. So I found out that the restaurant is less than a year old. The food was very good but there could be a bit more meat in the Curry Beef brisket with steam rice and the Fried beef with rice noodles. But overall the food was tasty, hot and fresh. The servers were very friendly and I noticed one of the ladies was cleaning the bar-b-q station area. It would appear that they take cleaniness seriously there. The washroom was actually a washroom and not a storage room. I was very impressed and will be returning to this establishment when I ever have the craving for Chinese food. Good first impression.

Very good food and service, but read the fine print for Groupons
Submitted Thursday, August 8, 2013 - 5:27pm [Dine in]

Went here with a friend who had a Groupon coupon. We ordered the Vegie Samosa for appetizers and Butter Chicken and Curry Lamb that came along with rice, naan and salad for the main course for dinner. Both dishes were very delicious and fresh. Came out piping hot and the service was decent. The price is a bit steep (average$15/dish) but to be expected as it was in Vancouver. The portion sizes was on the smaller side but since it was so rich, it was filling for the average person. When we received the bill, they added another $5 for lamb. When questioned about the additional charge, they stated that on the Groupon, the deal excluded lamb and prawns (which was like 40% of the all the dishes). A little disappointed that we had not read the condition for throughly, but was overall satisfied with this experience. If there was no Groupon coupon, they I would say that this place is very pricey for what you get.

Donair Affair10786 148th Street, Surrey
Pleasantly surprised
Submitted Sunday, July 14, 2013 - 9:45am [Take-out]

Went here with the kids and some friends. We came on a Wednesday and they had this special, a donair with two helping of meats and a pop for $7.99. When I received it, I was pleasantly surprised from the size and even more so from the taste. I had chicken and lamb and the flavour and the fresh ingredients made this now my go to donair place. I had some meats from other donairs places and it tasted old and processed. But here it was fresh and flavourful. The price reflects the portion. I was very impressed with everything, from the service all the way to the tasty lunch. The owner was very nice, he offered the kids a juice bottle each for free. Very nice of him to do that, now he has a loyal customer for being. Will be returning when I am craving some delicious donairs.

Went for the lunch buffet and was....
Submitted Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 1:32pm [Dine in]

Went here after I read a couple of very positive reveiews. I had the lunch buffet that cost $8.50/person. The lunch buffet was limited with 6 salads and 8 main course. They had the traditional bean salads and the pork dishes and some chicken drumsticks. My overall honest impression was that it was ok. I guess I had very high expectation after the previous review said that this place should be on the Triple D and Food network. I would not go that far. The food was satisfactory. Nothing really stands out as "I have to have it". It tasted decent but I will not go out of my way to eat there as the food for the most part tasted the same. The service was very attentive and the owners I believe were very friendly. Maybe I went there on an off day as there was only two tables occupied including my own. Overall impression..."meh"

Azumae Korean Japanese Restaraunt20688 Eastleign Crescent, Langley
Odd location for a sushi restaurant in Langley
Submitted Sunday, March 31, 2013 - 10:24am [Dine in]

Went here for lunch while I did some shopping in Langley. It was not easy place to find if you do not have a GPS. The restaurant is located between some residential complex and the building the place is in could have been pass off as a 1 level motel. Well the ambiance inside is quite nice and the ALL-U-CAN-EAT is quite good. The selections is limited, there was no sashimi on the $12.99 menu but if you wanted it you have to pay more. There was also a $21.99 menu which I believe there was sashimi. Yet for the $12.99 menu you get some interesting and tasty rolls such as the Crazy roll which is a cali roll deep fried. The food was fresh and was delightfully served promptly. I was impressed for what you pay for. Would definitely come back for AYCE when I am in the neighbourhood.

Kyo Korean BBQ & Sushi House2993 Granville St, #2, Vancouver
Nice ambiance but a tad too cold for my liking
Submitted Wednesday, February 27, 2013 - 10:21am [Dine in]

Went here for a Sunday lunch date with my better half. We ordered the all-u-can-eat for $14.99/each. The menu was satisfactory. Was not too extensive but adequate. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time. The sushi was decent but I had better. The Korean Bar-B-Q was pretty tasty as the beef we had was marinated well and has soaked up a lot of flavour. The hot dishes like yam tempura was very fresh and delicious. Some of the sushi and cones were falling apart.....but still edible and tasty. From the previous reviews about this place about the service I could not agree. From the start they offered us tea and had the food available in ample time. When asked for ginger or questions about the menu, the service staff was available and friendly. I was satisfied about this whole experience. Unfortunately the price of $14.99/each was on the steeper end for what selection you were offered. The dinner menu seems reasonable at $23.99/each but I did not see the extra selections. Would return when I am in the neighbourhood, but will not go out of my way.

Shinjuku Japanese Restaurant15019 Marine Drive, White Rock
Decent sushi but the service could be more attentive
Submitted Sunday, January 6, 2013 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

Went here for lunch and had the all-u-can-eat for $11.75/person. The selection was modest. We ordered from gomae, terayaki chicken, beef terayaki, miso soup, california rolls, dynamite rolls, crunch rolls, salmon sushi, chop scallops rolls, prawn tempura and yam tempura, etc. The food itself was prompt, fresh and tasty. I was overall impressed with the quality of the meals. The service on the other hand was not so good. They must have a language barrier as they forget some orders, do not understand and just nods and walk away. At times I had to wait for them to pick up the order sheet. The dishes was piling up at times as we had a small table and it was crowded already. The location was right by the peer, so this place would be nice on a clear warm day. Another downfall would be the parking. You have to pay for parking and that is all year round. Overall I enjoyed the food aspect but the service could improve by having some staff speak English fluently. I would venture to this restaurant again if I was in the neighborhood and craved for some sushi fix.

Subpar even for Westernized Chinese Food
Submitted Thursday, January 3, 2013 - 10:15am [Delivery]

Ordered takeout from here as the better half and friends were craving the westernized version of Chinese food. They ordered lemon chicken, sweet and sour pork, fried rice, vegetables dish chop suey (whatever the hell that is), and another dish which I do not know what it was, and boy was it disappointing. The price was not cheap either as it came around $20 per person. The lemon chicken was terrible and had a bland taste. The sweet and sour was good, but could not make up for the bland and greesy food that came delivered. Read so many positive reviews and thought I would be pleasantly surprised. I should have trusted my gut instinct and gone to a real chinese restaurant. Even on their worse days they will beat this place on their best day. I even looked them up on the net and ready their history, that they serve authentic chinese food and how great their history was...blah, blah blah. Or should I say bland, bland, bland. I should have known better when there was not any chinese characters on their menu and they have the "special combos"....
Like their fortune cookie should have said...."you live and learn from your mistakes"

Satisfactory food and in a sketchy area
Submitted Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 9:54pm [Dine in]

Went here after talking to a person about decent Fillipino food. So I thought we give it a try. So the better half and the kids came along. The food is premade and you pick the dishes you like along with rice. 2 dishes and rice for $8.50. The lady behind the counter was nice enough to let me sample some dishes as it was the first time I went to a Fillipino restaurant. They were friendly and patience with our kids having a hissy fit at times. Overall the experience was good. The food itself was not too bad. The fan favorites are solid but next tme I go to a Fillipino restaurant I am bring my buddy to tell me exactly what I am eating. Decent place, sketchy area.

The owner must had a bad day or hates kids.
Submitted Monday, October 8, 2012 - 12:01pm [Dine in]

Went here for a Sunday lunch with the family. We had to get our own highchairs from the side of the restaurant. The highchairs were stained and flithy but we had no other choice. The owner/waiter came to our table and tossed the utensils, dishes and hot sauce on the table. Clanking as it hit the glass table cover. We thought that this was strange and a bit rude but whatever I thought. Then we waited and waited for him to come over to take our order. It tool 10-12 mins and with kids that is a very long time. The better half was getting upset that the service was so subpar and wanted to leave, but I thought since we were here we should stay. Should have listen to the Mrs. We ordered our 3 dishes, beef brisket with noodle in soup, shanghai noodles and mixed meat with noodles in a spicy sauce. When the food arrived, I asked for some chilli oil, the owner/waiter took our hot sauce away and came back with the chilli oil. I thought that was rude, I said I wanted chilli oil, not to take the hot sauce away as my wife uses that hot sauce. Then he grabbed the fork from the kids and said that they might poke their eyes out. They were eating with it and that would be my judgement call to how I want to parent my child not his. That behaviour even pissed off the Mrs more. Now I was agreeing with her. Throughout the whole meal, he did not come over our table to refill our tea or water. I felt that families with young kids are not welcome. So when one of the kids spilled food off the table, normally I would be more concern and clean it up, not this time. Very disappointed in this restaurant. It used to be decent and close to home. But now I would go elsewhere for my chinese food. Also the food was not up to par. The food tasted better and had more ingredients the last time I visited. Would not return back to this place.
