Pinch of Spice8701 120 St, Delta
Really bad service & food
Submitted Saturday, July 2, 2016 - 11:52pm [Dine in]

Ordered 2 dishes one veg & other non-veg. Totally different dishes, but got exact same gravy, what a joke. Very bad service, chase for water. Had to stop eating & visit counter requesting for water. Almost felt like going to kitchen & getting water myself. Food taste was mediocre at best. Seems it was prepared in hurry, only 1 other family their not sure what caused it. Menu price was similar as Tasty Bistro, please think twice before you bring family or friends here. Wish we would have went for Bistro instead.
Time & money wasted, will never go back. I gave 3 for Ambiance cause honestly better compare to food, service & value.

If you want honest & neutral review, this is for you.

Very Good Food, very busy like a Canteen. Ambiance is average
Submitted Thursday, June 30, 2016 - 9:39pm [Dine in]

Food is really good & tasty.
After Tasty Bistro this is next best thing as far as Food taste.

This place is for Breakfast & lunch.
Just be prepared for wait line on weekends during noon.

Special Bature & Amritsir Kulche. I always ask for well done if you like crispy.
Parking is problem as Payal center is always busy. They do not charge for tips, so you have to leave cash for waiters on table.

Main Choice Chinese Restaurant13393 72 Avenue, Surrey
Really bad food, no taste, flavours.
Submitted Tuesday, February 24, 2015 - 11:16am [Take-out]

As title says save your hard earn money, nasty tasteless food. Don't tell me you were not warned. Very poor qty food, soggy, no flavours, just soaking in some cheap cooking oil. Avoid this place, or donate your lunch/diner money to charity instead. I went their 1st time for pickup order & during 8pm on friday not a single diner eating, the place was empty. I should have got hint by this, but proceeded to pick up anyway. I hope City shut down this place, the food is that bad.

NASTY FOOD (below Airline food qty)
Submitted Wednesday, May 28, 2014 - 6:28pm [Take-out]

I went their 2nd time to order more food. Except Cream Chicken, food was worse then airline food.

Goat curry was basically boiled goat meat toss in to tomato sauce. (I am not joking)
No spices etc. it was just goat meat + tomato sauce.

The restaurant needs to be shutdown, we end up cooking it again with new gravy at home.

Please do yourself a favor & never buy anything from them. We paid full restaurant price for these dishes. What a waste of my money, I felt cheated.

Tasty Indian Bistro8295 Scott Road, Delta
Very Good "over priced" food. Good Service
Submitted Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 10:40pm [Dine in]

Very tasty food... but small portions & overpriced for all items.
Must have to say the place was full, few times I have been.

Good for people with deep pockets.

Most dishes have unique flavors, service was also good. Worth trying it out.

I liked their "Chilli Mushrooms", it is not that spice, but does taste really good.

Maharaja8148 128 Street Surrey, #407, Surrey
Best Indian Food & Sweets (Motichur Ladoo) place. Best tasting food, with ok service.
Submitted Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 10:33pm [Dine in]

Quick tips: 1) This place is a little bit hard to find as it's in a generic, large mini-mall near the back, but the food is worth it 2) The food is set out as a buffet, but if you know of something that isn't out, they can probably provide it if you ask (i.e. garlic naan, aloo tiki, etc).

I moved to the lower mainland just a few months ago and am always on the look for new good eats. A good friend of mine has lived in the lower mainland for about 8 years, and absolutely loves good food. He told me, as soon as I moved back, he was going to take me to Maharaja. I was assured it was good as Maharaja is normally a catering company for high end East Indian weddings. Sure enough, after only a month of being back, I went to Maharaja and have gone back several times since.

This is one of the best East Indian restaurants in the lower mainland for your money and just for taste. Period. Unfortunately, they are only open for lunch (no dinners), but it is worth traveling during a lunch break or on the weekend to get there. To give you an idea, I've gone twice at 11:30am when they open. Both times there have been at least 4 car loads of people waiting to get in as soon as the doors open. I almost always take this as a good sign.

Inside the décor is very plain and simple - pretty much bare minimum or some tables and banquettes (no pictures, plants, etc.). Since my first visit, there have been continual renovations and updates to the décor, making it appear a lot more open and clean than it originally looked.

Since the restaurant is buffet style, you come into the restaurant, find any open table, place down your stuff and go right to the back to the restaurant to get your food. At the back you'll find your cutlery, plates and the wonderful, wonderful food. To start, there are some salads 1 or 2, several Indian dips (yogurt, curry, habenero, mint, chutneys, etc), along with several garnishes/toppers (i.e. green onion, pickled lemon, etc).

Then..... there's the hot food. There are between 10-12 hot dishes, with the majority of the dishes (~8) are vegetarian based, but that should not turn you off in the least. Maharaja is plentiful with spices and flavors, but not to the point that it ever becomes overbearing or inedible. All the standards that you would expect at an Indian restaurant are regulars on the buffet: butter chicken, palak paneer, lamb vindaloo, etc. along with many others that rotate from day to day. When you sit down a server will bring you naan, but you can ask for garlic naan, roti bread, or others if you'd like for no cost.

To add to this you can find a dessert table too for after you've overstuffed yourself (which I'm sure you will as it's A) a buffet for $11 B) it's damn tasty). You'll find items like laddu, jalebi, fruit and more. If you feel so inclined, there is a sweet shop attached to the restaurant where you can take some of the sweet treats home for later.

If you like good East Indian food, this is a place to go out of your way for. This is my go to place for a great East Indian lunch.

Desi Dosa Madras8859 120th Street, Delta
little expensive, but really good food.
Submitted Wednesday, March 14, 2012 - 7:04pm [Dine in]

Order few dishes, asked them for "hot", man I tell you it was really spicy.

Masala Fried Fish served with Salad - Extremely good 9.5/10
Chicken Munchurian - very good 8/10
Goat Biryani - very good 8.5/10 (go with max medium hot)
Onion Rava Dosa & Masala Dosa - good 7.5/10
Fish & Chips - very good 8.5/10 (kids meal, not typical taste)
Nilagiri Chicken Curry - good 6.5/10

Very difference & unique taste due to different spices... not typical Indian food. Must try it. One of the best fried fish I have tried.

Some items should not be so high on price.

Desi Lounge & Restaurant8821 120th St, Delta
Good food, expensive & very less portion
Submitted Friday, November 11, 2011 - 3:36pm [Dine in]

Positive: Good food, non-veg platters are quite good.

Negative:
* Very expensive when compare to other good restaurants.
* Very small portions (I mean it seriously), not worth it unless you come for Buffet lunch.
* Service is OK, sometimes you have to hunt them down to get anything ordered.
* Smoke from kitchen during sizzlers flows in the main lounge, making you cough.

Bottom line: There are so many other good restaurants. I will not go back unless either they lower down their price or offer reasonable size portion.

World's Most expensive DOSA
Submitted Saturday, August 13, 2011 - 11:22am [Take-out]

least expensive DOSA for $8, rest of them $9. WoW

No tandoor, so no fresh tandoori roti, no fresh naans (just packed food). I wonder how are they going to survive these short comings & over pricing in Surrey Area where their are already over 30-40 restaurant Indian.

Good food, but very expensive... I hope to see they selling Dosa's for $30/each in near future ;)

Good Service, ok food
Submitted Sunday, May 8, 2011 - 7:15pm [Dine in]

We order few of the dishes & found they used SAME sauce in all of them. Owner too friendly. I hope he spend more time on food than pleasing customer. Chilli Pepper House in Surrey is much better option for Indo-Chinese food & with average service.

Both of these restaurants are known for Indo-Chinese menu.

They offer one of the Best Indian tandoori Pizza, around $11 - $12 for large size. Their veg pizza is also good. I can't comment on rest of the pizzas as I have never tried it. Order wait is between 20 - 45 mins depending on time & day of the week.

Kamal Sweets & Tandoori Hut6977 128 Street, #104, Surrey
Naan & Samosa are best, not so great for sweets. Cheapest Prices
Submitted Wednesday, September 15, 2010 - 10:47am [Take-out]

Just ok Qty sweets, but their Naan & samosas (2 for $1) are best (they taste best). Rest of the food Qty is also ok.

However they offer the lowest prices in town. Great savings for large parties. We cook at home, but sometimes order their Garlic Naans & Tandoori roti (best in town) same goes for Samosas (very tasty).

Excellent taste Indian sweets, but also expensive !
Submitted Wednesday, September 15, 2010 - 10:37am [Take-out]

I agree with rest of the reviews that they do offer the best tasting sweets. But they charge more than any other place around. They also use less sugar which is great.

For samosas & Naans, I would try next door sweet place "Kamal Sweets" few feet away in adjacent plaza. They are best, but for sweets Prabu is best. Also they offer best Motichoor Ladoos in town.

Bengali Fish & Curry13030 76 Ave, #104, Surrey
Great Food [Tandoori Chicken BEST] ... long wait & ok service. [Pickup Only]
Submitted Wednesday, March 10, 2010 - 10:55am [Dine in]

I been their 2 times, once when they were just opened. Ordered Bengali Fish Curry, it was good not great... nothing special or different from other types of Fish curries. Also ordered Tandoori Chicken, this was surprise. It end up been the best tandoori chicken that I have tasted so far, it is juicy. But when I went back 2nd time it was good, less juicy as it got so busy I had to wait over 1 hr even after I placed the order over the phone ahead of my visit. Very clean cooking, they cook in front of you. I noticed word of mouth made them really busy place now, if you want really good food, try ordering when they are less busy with orders like weekdays or during daytime. Try calling at least 1-2 hrs ahead & let them know you will pickup 1-2 hrs later so they don't rush your order & cook slowly. Price of some dishes are reasonable, others are expensive.

I hope if someone from Bengali Fish & Curry team is reading this, please mention your quality of Tandoori Chicken as you did when you guys opened up. Keep it juicy & well marinated so we keep coming back for more.

Great Food... Very Bad Service!
Submitted Monday, March 8, 2010 - 9:37pm [Dine in]

Was their today for Lunch... ordered Lunch Thali.
One of the worst waiter service by any Food place... this lady waiter was doing us great favor by bringing us food... lol
Although food was great... but expensive $35 bucks for 2 Thali & 2 soft drinks. If you do not mind poor service for good food try it out, otherwise think twice if you are taking someone special with you.
