Tandori Cuisine Indienne2929 Barnet Highway, Coquitlam
Worst "Indian food" in BC
Submitted Saturday, March 19, 2011 - 8:01pm [Dine in]

I decided to have lunch at this place as it is new, and looked very clean. I ordered chick pea curry and naan (which also came with potatoes). The chick pea curry was the worst I've ever eaten. As an Indian person I am qualified to judge Indian food. I cook better. I have no idea why, but the curry was saturated with coconut! It was vile, and also very salty. The potatoes on the hand were absolutely devoid of salt. I could not eat much of the meal as I felt queasy. I have no idea who the cook is but that person needs some serious training in the art of Indian cooking. I would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. If the veg dishes were so bad, I dread to think how the meat dishes taste.

Best South Indian food in Vancouver
Submitted Monday, August 2, 2010 - 12:35am [Dine in]

This restaurant is one of an international chain. Having eaten in 2 of their other other branches previously, I was pleasantly surprised to have discovered the Vancouver branch 2 years ago which I have eaten at several times now. To correct a previous reviewer, the food is not "South East Indian" (there is no such thing) but South Indian ie. the food of Tamil Nadu, Kerala etc. (I myself am South Indian so feel it necessary to state this fact). I have had the lunch buffet a few times and have ordered from the a la carte menu ithe evenings I have visited too. The lunch buffet is the best value for money imaginable with a variety of curries, breads, dosas and desserts. I love their masala dosa. I also enjoy their mango lassies. I would most definitely recommend this place.

I have to disagree with the the negative reviewers on here. I celebrated my birthday at this location. We had an amazing table near the window overlooking the water. The service was attentive and efficient. The restaurant was packed (it was a Friday night). A few of us in our party had the lobster ravioli which was delicious, and one guest had the seafood grill which she really enjoyed. I was presented with ice cream and a sparkler to celebrate my birthday. All in all a fantastic experience. I would definitely eat there again.

Poor service and inappropriate dress code of servers
Submitted Wednesday, July 28, 2010 - 9:39pm [Dine in]

I had brunch at this place a couple of months ago with a friend on a Sunday. The first thing we noticed was that despite not being very busy, the person at the desk inside had difficulty knowing how to seat customers. After being made to wait, a few other diners arrived and she got herself into a flap instead of seating any of us! Eventually, another waitress had to seat us. Both my friend and I noticed that these waitresses were wearing very short tight skirts, tight fitting cleavage exposing tops and high heels. This attire may be appropriate for a lap dancing or strip club but is not befitting a restaurant serving brunch on a Sunday in an area populated by young families. Why do the servers have to be degraded in this way? The food itself was mediocre. I will not be returning. I much preferred this place when it was Jamiesons.

I only discovered the existence of this branch whilst walking past it the other day. I have eaten from the Langley branch in the past and really enjoyed what I ate there so my expectations were high. I telephoned from home to order a take out for delivery this evening. The person who took my order just could not spell my name, I repeated the spelling (of 6 letters) about 3 times, even shouting it out to him as I thought that he may have had a hearing problem. I then had to do the same with my address. 20 minutes later, a female called me to enquire about my address! I repeated what I had told the first person but she appeared confused and clearly had not heard of my road which is in Port Moody, not far from the restaurant. When the driver eventually arrived with the food, he told me to call the restaurant as they had not given him a receipt hence had no idea of what I owed! I then had to waste my time calling to find out how much I owed, only to be asked by the manager what I had ordered! At no point did the manager apologise for this shambles. When I finally got the food, I noted that my name was still not spelled correctly on the boxes. In fact, it wasn't even a variation of my name but someone else's altogether. The fact that the 3 boxes corresponded to my order made me realise that the person who originally took my order must really have a hearing or literacy problem.

My main order was the singapore cashew stir fry with chicken and hokkien noodles. I could not taste any cashew in the dish nor could I see any. The menu advertises this dish as being spicy. All I could taste was sweet and sour sauce with not a hint of spice. It is also stated on the menu that the dish contains cilantro. There was definitely no cilantro in mine. I ate some of it and binned the rest. The other items I ordered were the samosas and green onion cakes which were tolerable. All in all, my experience of this place has been overwhelmingly dismal. Bad service is one thing, but bad service (with no apology) coupled with even worse food is unacceptable. I will never set foot anywhere near this place again. I have already emailed a complaint to Wok Box's customer service dept.
