Porto Fino Express15150 North Bluff Rd., White Rock
First Timer ,but not last
Submitted Monday, November 19, 2012 - 5:38pm [Dine in]

This little mall takeout/resturant is under new ownership [as of Aug 2012]and Mike is trying to get a noon time trade going. Noon hours opening is 11:30 AM ,but had to knock on the windows at 11:35 and Mike opened up. The restaurant was V cold and we hoped to see some heat on.We had some second thoughts of staying and we were pleased to give him a chance.We ordered to regular sized ,2 diff pasta dishes and they were ready in about 25 mins.We were the only people in until a single came looked at the wall menu and finding no one to assist,walked out . Another came in for fish and chips and the owner had trouble getting the fryer going .

Overall the portion was very generous , flavours of the 2 different pastas was nice BUT were identical.

We will give it another chance ,But customer service is important to us and found it some what lacking. Mike is a very nice guy.

Washrooms clean but not floors had some paper debris from previous opening ?

Cora's Breakfast & Lunch15355 24th Avenue, Unit 960, Surrey
WOW ! What a Difference !
Submitted Sunday, October 28, 2012 - 2:30pm [Dine in]

Well the title tells it all.This Cora's has pulled itself up from it's almost disasterous start up fiasco.Busy Sunday lunch time was handled extremely well by our server Sarah. Line ups the entire time . But wait time no more than 5 mins .Tables found within a few mins, coffee served within 3 mins {UNLIKE 20 mins last time }meal within 8 mins.We kept Sarah busy with requests for water,coffee ,napkins and she accomodated us with a smile each time. She past my test with flying marks. Ass't manager called over to advise him of his staffing and general improvements.Food vastly improved. [7.5/10]

Sharkey's Seafood Bar & Grille4953 Chisholm Street, Delta
Going down hill and needs a make over.
Submitted Thursday, September 13, 2012 - 10:21am [Dine in]

We have dined here several times, food and value is average. Service was lacking ,No cutlery ,had to ask for coffee fillups every time.Steak cooked perfectly.But the decore is now getting tired ,needs an upgrade , The out door plastic tables stained and very unappealing.View is not what attracts people ,just a backwater slough setting. Better places to eat in this town.

A Welcome Addition to the Langley eatery scene !
Submitted Tuesday, June 5, 2012 - 5:51pm [Dine in]

Gary is an excellent Chef and host and has put together an amazing buffet . The buffet items were mild in heat ,but HUGE in flavours .This Langley eatery is spotless and very tastefully decorated .

The price for the lunch time buffet was $10.95 and included 10 hot entres and 10 salads, fruit plates, chutney, yogurt dish and sweets .

Our hostess Maha brought to our table freshly cooked, out of the kitchen, Tandorri Chicken ,then placed the balance onto the buffet table Nice touch Maha ! We where never out of fresh baked Nann and iced water .

This a new restaurant in LANGLEY and will be a hit ! We will be back to try their evening menu as Gary stated
the menu is quite different .

I have to say their PNann {bread ] is the best South Asian bread that I have ever eaten .

This hidden gem will soon be on everyone's must try list.

SHUSH don't tell anyone.
Submitted Sunday, May 6, 2012 - 6:01pm [Take-out]

We accidentally found this Victoria hidden gem of a unique eatery .A long line up convinced us to try a chipotle shrimp tacone,salmon & chips,samon talcone and the seafood special of the day plus drinks. What a great meal on warm May afternoon.The line up was 25 people ,but wait of 20 mins.was will worth it. We were sitting down on small upside down buckets with galvanized tables within another 10 mins. Cost of the meal for 4 adults and 2 kids was $60.00.Will go every time we are in Victoria, SHUSH don't tell anyone.

Ordered the house Schintzel and Shannon recommended that I ask for less salt . Wonderful flavour , Veges over cooked, loved my meal .My wife ordered the roasted lamb and was a little disappointed , funny taste in her rice , veges over cooked,

overall a pleasant dining experience

What a dissapointment from previous visit
Submitted Friday, January 27, 2012 - 5:34pm [Dine in]

What a disaster this time !

Firstly ...went to this restaurant when it first opened ,every thing was good to very good , BUT today {jan27/12 for lunch} What a let down ..

Hmmm where to start? OK dried catsup on the wall next to me , waitress that was very disinterested in us ,She couldn't get off the phone to greet us or show us to a table , just waved in the general direction of a almost empty restaurant . Menus that were grubby and falling a part . Cutlery that was dirty and given to our waitress { never replaced it} . Waved to get attention 3 times , but she ignored us and continued to set tables for afternoon shift . Never saw her again !

Finally another gal turned up with a honking big cold sore and took our orders .. Waited 20 minutes for meals to come and then one was WRONG . Groan, I hate that . When waitress came to ask if we wanted dessert, {she never came to ask how the meals where} I said my ribs where very tough and could not eat them , She gave me 50% off my meal BIG DEAL, gave her 6% tip only {rounded up to $40 bucks } . I wasn't going to leave anything . Bathrooms dirty

.NEVER , Ever going back !

Too many other places to eat in South Surrey . Will be out of business soon

Very , very disappointed in Service , Quality , value
Submitted Sunday, November 6, 2011 - 9:35am [Dine in]

We have had lunch here in July and had a wonderful experience . Food was really good .
We thought we would try the evening dining .There was four of us and had a great window seat with a wonderful view . That was the only redeeming feature of the evening . We ordered a jug of beer and an appy . Beer took 3 minutes the appy 30 +minutes . I asked the waiter for his favourite meal and he suggested the Chicken pot pie . He did say it wasn't a big portion so I asked for a side of fries .Others placed theirs and then we waited , and waited. One hour later we got our meals . Mine was just warm and so watery I asked for a spoon and no fries . The three other's where equally cool to cold . I got mine replaced with a hotter version . The crust was so tough I could not cut it so pulled it apart and tried it , Can you say Cardboard box taste and texture . One steak meal was tough and incorrectly cooked , Chicken meal cold and tasteless , Fish and chips , fish way over cooked .All three had Yam fries were cold and small pieces and burnt. Waitered offered free desserts , We declined the desserts as we had to be at another venue ,he then presented the bill with a $15.00 reduction on a $120 bill.With a little discussion he reduced it again . What a disasterous experience .We are locals and eat out weekly ,and love to support our White Rock eateries . With so many restaurants to choose from these places need to get it right every time.

great place for lunch
Submitted Sunday, November 6, 2011 - 9:04am [Dine in]

We have been to this local restaurant quite a few times and find the dining experience to be very pleasant each time . Lunch time menu $10 for 10 different items was very good. The bread basket was refilled as many times as you wished . The hostess and staff very attentive . White table cloth napkins ,quality dish ware and silverware makes this dining experience a cut above the competition .

Five Guys Burgers & Fries2285 160th Street, Unit F8, Surrey
No 1 Burger in USA ...Don't think so .No 2 Fries in USA ........Definitely NOT
Submitted Monday, October 25, 2010 - 1:05pm [Dine in]

Burger and fries and drink for $15. It better be excellent in every aspect . NOT excellent! I stated at the time of order I would be reviewing my meal on line and at these prices it better be memorable.
Staffing :- Very nice and professional
Food :- Burger slighty pink , Should have returned .They stated all burgers are only cooked well done
Loved the ability to load burger with a dozen garnishes . I over did it and it was a mess. My fault.
Fries . mediocre at best , Peanut oil had been saponified/over heated and you could smell it upon entering .Consequently the fries had been discoloured and tasted off . Someone had over heated the oil and killed it . MUST CLEAN AND CHANGE OIL in Fryer.

This a new venture and they have a learning curve that will have to improve the get a following in South Surrey.

Overall rating 2.5 / 5

Will try again .and rate again

A great little italian eatery
Submitted Saturday, September 26, 2009 - 9:05pm [Dine in]

I have been here 7 times {lunch and suppers}. We have always left satisfied , quality ingredients plus quality Chefs and management makes for a very successful eatery .

Staff is attentive , portions are generous and prices are more than fare .

Decor is very dated and tired .

Not a high end restaurant but satisfies my needs .

mixed results for first time
Submitted Friday, June 13, 2008 - 8:10pm [Dine in]

Nice atmosphere ,very clean ,nicely attired wait staff.

Steak Oscar [$21.00] was perfectly prepared .Plenty of shrimp and crab meat . Waitress had to be called back as she failed to enquire on how to tell the chef to do steak. Steak and Veges done perfectly.{8/10}

Baby Back ribs [$18] ribs tough,v. little meat ,tasty bourbon sauce ,veges done perfectly but very small portion.{3/10}

When waitress asked how we were enjoying meal {my comment "JUST OK "}, she didn't hear my comments as she appeared distracted by other bar patrons .

So in horsey talk "win .place or show" --one winner and one nag that had no business being in the race . Will give it another chance ,but with so many places to dine in south Surrey it has only one more chance to redeem it's self.

* Second Worst meal of my life *
Submitted Friday, June 13, 2008 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

What a disappointment!This establishment on first entering gave false hope of a dining experience that one could tell friends about.Atmosphere actually very nice [an authentic English restaurant right out of the 50's]Our waitress was quite helpful in the meal selection.My wife had the Roast beef and all the fixings and I had the steak and mushroom pie.[$16.95 and $15.95 resp]. Mel arrived and the dining experience plummeted to an all time low for us. R.beef way over cooked and old and stringy and lots of grissel, Gravy lumpy ,overly salty and out of a Swanson pre- packaged gravy pouch. Veges v. tired and rubbery ,Yorkshire pudding was made several days before ,frozen and microwaved . My steak and mushroom pie came inverted on the plate and horrible brown gluppy stuff poured on it. Pastry slightly rancid ,no mushrooms ,excessive salt, roast potatoes made some time earlier in the day and nuked especially for me [ rubber texture and stale tasting] .Both meals inedible When waitress was advised about our poor quality she was not at all apologetic ,in fact she stated that it was completely not what ever came out of the kitchen .She wanted to replace the meal but since everything on our plates was horrible first go round we declined and asked for our bill. No tip ,No comp, should have walked out . Stay away and save your money .
