Subpar Indian Chinese food
Submitted Saturday, December 12, 2009 - 1:53am [Dine in]

I ordered takeout from here twice. Was not impressed the first time so I ordered again recently thinking maybe they have had an off night. Not so. Their food is very coarse comparing to the others in the Surry Delta area. The chow mein comes with either thick Shanghai noodle or the thin regular noodles. The thick noodle just does not suit this style of food/cooking. The sauce on the cantonese chow mein which is made with the thin noodles was a sloppy mess. The manchurian vegetable was a few giant balls of finely chopped up vegetable mush. All the other items were nothing memorible. This is the first time that I did not care for the food from an Indian Chinese restaurant. I won't be back.

Inconsistent food and service
Submitted Friday, August 7, 2009 - 5:02pm [Dine in]

I've been here a few times. Quality is very inconsistent. The last time was lousy, the time before that was great, the time before that the service was lousy. Next time I 'll just go to a different place rather than taking a chance. Sure, the owner comes around to the table to ask about your food. But he doesn't really mean to hear real feedback. The last time we were there, we had a dish that was quite disappointing. It tasted bland and rubbery. So I told him...in a respectful way. You can just tell by looking at the dish that it wasn't prepared properly. Instead of acknowledging it, the owner made some lame excuses about the supplier. Give me a break! Another dish that we ordered was lamb curry. It was ok but not great. While the sauce was good, the chunks of lamb was a bit rubbery. The size of the naan bread had shrunk also. We won't be back!

Good but expensive
Submitted Sunday, June 21, 2009 - 2:43pm [Dine in]

We came here for lunch on a Friday. The decor is very modern and upscale. The menu is limited but creative. We ordered pakora prawns, very tasty and presentation was beautiful, a pulled pork sandwich, and a salad, also very tasty and well thought out. Wine was expensive. Service was prompt and attentive. I would come back. But if the prices were more reasonable I would come back more often.

We've been here a couple of times. Tried various dishes- steaks have been very good, tender, cooked to perfection and are of outstanding value. The veggies that came with it were well thought out and not the soggy frozen kind. The yam fries were yummy. The crab cakes were decent, as good as any other restaurant's and portion was big. Salads were creative and delicious. The lobster macaroni was also tasty. But wish the chunks of lobster were bigger. The let down was the mussels. Being on the coast, you think you would get fresh mussels. Even the waitress assured us that it would be. What they brought me were leathery New Zealand mussels on half shells smothered in a thick chunky tomatoe sauce?!!! It was supposed to be mussels with a tequila lime sauce. Huh? If they don't have enough demand to keep fresh mussels on hand they should just take the mussels right off the menu. The waitress should know the difference. Its pretty obvious. For the dessert, we had the apple pie, which was baked in house. The crust was really thick and tough and the apples were...more like apple sauce. The restaurant has potential but is sloppy is some areas. I hope management pays attention. Surrey really needs a good restaurant.

Good bang for your buck!

$13.95 for roast lamb, or souvlaki (chicken, lamb, or beef)!!! And on a Friday night too! What a deal! We tried the roast lamb and the lamb souvlaki. Both were good and the portions were big. Plenty of leftovers to take home. The meat was tender and full of flavor. The rice was tasty and the potatoes were tender and lemonly. The greek salad was ok. The tzitiki sauce was nice and thick. Pitas come with the meals. I hope the owners will continue to offer these deals. In the past year or so, we stopped going out as often because we noticed the big price jump in most restaurants...and often for foods that were nothing special. Kinda takes the fun out of eating out. But with prices like this, we'll eat out more often!

Came here for dim sum twice, both times on Sundays. The place was packed but people kept coming. That's because the dim sum is pretty good(but not high end good), portion is big, the variety is decent, they are brought to you by carts and the price is right. For the five of us the bill came to $45! with leftovers to take home. (BTW They take cash only if the bill is less than $30)

The down side to this place is that you will feel rushed from the time you get there. They rely on volume. So expect to eat and run. The place is so hectic and crowded that you won't want to linger ...even if they let you.The hostess/manager led customer that were waiting in line right to our table while we were finishing up. The next time we were there, she led us to a table where the people were still eating??!

I have to say that although the hostess/manager's ways are unorthodox, she does keep the line moving and provide effective crowd control...like keeping this rude man from budding in front of me the last time we were there.

The health board had lots of problem with the owner of this place when they were at their last location. Hopefully, they are cleaner now. I'll be checking on the health board's website.

In summery, this is a good place to go for quick cheap eats the next time you are desperate for dim sum but don't want to go into Rmd. Just hope they can keep the place reasonably clean.

Nothing special
Submitted Wednesday, November 19, 2008 - 4:13pm [Dine in]

After reading all the positive reviews here. My husband and I decided to give this place a try. It turned out rather disappointing. The quality of the sushi was only ok, not as bad as food court sushi but not as good as say, Tokachi. The slice of tuna on the sushi was pretty thin, the surface was dull looking. Really fresh fish should be shiny. The california roll was sliced too thin. The meat of the deep fried crab was watery and tasteless. Must have been frozen. Portion was on the small side. Yet, the prices were high. You are not paying for the ambience because the place is pretty spartan. Perhaps there has been a change of ownership since the positive reviews? Who knows. But I won't be back.
