An Indian Affair19653 Willowbrook Drive, Unit #146, Langley
Buffet was just fair
Submitted Friday, March 28, 2014 - 10:12pm [Dine in]

Had the lunch buffet. Several veggie dishes, a couple of meat dishes, naan, and salad section. The veggie dishes were all OK, not great but not bad. The meat dishes were mostly sauce. The naan came out charred black, not at all appealing; despite this they couldn't produce enough to keep up with the customers.

I really love Indian food, but this wasn't good enough to come back for, unless it were a few bucks cheaper.

Mahek Restaurant15133 #10 Hwy, Surrey
All round good evening
Submitted Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 10:07pm [Dine in]

A friend was visiting from Kansas and wanted Indian food, so we brought her to Mahek. It was also our first visit there. The place was not quite full but doing a good business on a Thursday evening. We got seated after a minute or two and started in on the menu. It's WAY bigger than the menu at most Indian places we've gone to, and had numerous items that I haven't seen on other menus. We tried their Dhai Bhalla (good but nothing spectacular) and then ordered 4 entrees so that we'd have lots of leftovers: palak paneer, chicken vindaloo, butter chicken, and aloo gobi, with rice and naan. Every one of these dishes was tasty and flavourful, perhaps not quite as good on the whole as those at my favourite place, but nothing at all to complain about.

Service was very attentive at first, but took a longer time than necessary to tend our table after we were done and waiting for boxing and bill. The server was amusing as he asked us for *each* of our 7 or so dishes whether we wanted that boxed up, too. We did. And I enjoyed the leftovers!

The atmosphere is very pleasant. There is a huge chandelier that drew my SO's and friend's attention for quite a while and numerous other Indian-themed decorations around the walls. TVs throughout the restaurant were showing an out-of-town hockey game, so the immersion was not complete, but the sound was off and there was Indian music at a reasonable volume over the audio system. The clientele was a mix of South Asian and caucasian, there were families with kids and dating couples. Seems to be a reasonable place for any kind of meal out. I would definitely come back

One tip: The menu items all have spiciness ratings listed with them. I don't know whether these can be altered to suit individual tastes, but two or three peppers is spicy enough that I notice (I *like* spicy food).

Boston Pizza6486 176th Street, Unit #600, Surrey
Pizzas overdone; manager says that's their "normal".
Submitted Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 9:45pm [Delivery]

Got a couple of pizzas delivered from this location. One was a little bit browner than I like, but not really bad. The other one, a pepperoni pizza, was heavily overdone to the point that the pepperonis were curled up and crisp with a charred flavour. The cheese between the pepperoni was brown and stiff in spots, not gooey like melted cheese should be.

When i pay close to $25 for a pizza, I expect it to be *good*, not poorly baked. I called to complain. The manager explained that this is pretty common for pepperoni. (I find it a little frightening to learn that they think of crisp pepperoni as normal!) To her full credit, she immediately arranged to remake the pizza with the pepperoni *under* the cheese and send it out. This earns her better marks for "service" Unfortunately, even this new pizza had brown crusty cheese on half and what I consider to be "normally" done cheese on the other half. So I think the real problem may be that they have an uneven oven that is ruining their pizzas.

The moral of the story is: if it ain't done right, send it back. They will fix it and eventually learn that it's cheaper to do it right the first time.

Old Surrey Restaurant, The13483 72nd Ave, Surrey
Terrific Evening, nothing to complain about
Submitted Saturday, October 9, 2010 - 11:32pm [Dine in]

My wife and I came here for a dinner to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant is in a stand-alone house and dining is in several rooms. The interior is pleasantly decorated with nostalgic pictures and quality furnishings. We had a reservation and were seated immediately upon our arrival (make reservations well in advance for popular times). We both had selections from the Eat and Drink BC menu: $35 three-course meal. Appetizers were tomato-gin soup and a beet salad, main courses were halibut and three kinds of lamb, and desserts were a pear pastry and chocolate mousse. All were extremely well prepared and very tasty. No complaints at all about the quality of the food. The quantities were slightly small, but not absurdly so.

As with many higher-end restaurants, we had one main server and many others bringing bread, water, and so forth. All were efficient and took good care of us. The total bill for 2 meals, 2 glasses of wine, and a cocktail came to a little over $100. I wouldn't want to spend that for every night's meal, but it is not outrageous for the the quality of food and the dining experience. About the only thing I can think of to complain about is that my seat looked out the front window at a strip mall across 72nd Ave.

We were thoroughly satisfied with the evening and will gladly return.

Very good meal, but you pay for it.
Submitted Saturday, May 8, 2010 - 11:41pm [Dine in]

Had an anniversary dinner here, tried the $45 3-course dinner. We ordered a total of 6 different dishes: both appetizers get a 4 rating. One pasta gets a 5 (mushroom fusilli) and the other a 2 (the fettuccine with duck confit was way to salty and not fully edible). The meat dishes in the entrees were both 4's, but the associated veggies were a bit less than that. Service was tremendous. We were made to feel welcome and pampered. All told, however, with wine the bill came to over $160 for dinner for 2. For that money I want *everything* to be excellent. This was really good, but not good enough for the money for me. I have to ding them for the Value score.

La Charcuterie Delicatessen19080 96 Ave, Surrey
Giant sandwich, but don't go if you're overly sensitive
Submitted Sunday, February 28, 2010 - 6:10pm [Dine in]

This place is extreme on two counts: the proprietor and the sandwiches. Otherwise it would be an ordinary delicatessen: a meat and cheese counter and a few small specialty grocery items.

While I was there, the proprietor kept up a steady monologue of crudeness and explicit sexual commentary as he made sandwiches. He interacted with each customer, trying to push buttons to see what kind of reaction he could get, and he seemed to love it when the customers played along. There was no anger or hatred in his words; he's just an x-rated comedian. Individual tastes will vary as to whether one finds his shtick funny or grating. I give the ambiance a 3, meaning that for some it will be a 5 and for others a 1.

As for service, it is also either a 1 or a 5. On the one hand, he never actually asked what kind of sandwich I wanted. After I chose my bread he just kept pulling out meats and saying that he'd put some of this on it too. He asked whether I wanted hot sauce, and when I said that I wanted it on just one of my two sandwiches, he decided to put it on both. On the other hand, he put much less of it on mine than he did for another customer who said that she wanted some, so he was paying *some* attention to preferences. Finally when he handed me my sandwiches he also gave me a chocolate bar ("Give this to your wife, and give her a French kiss on my behalf"). I will note that he washed his hands before starting every new customer's order. Only his mind is dirty...

Finally, for the food. The sandwiches are on wide, foot-long sub bread. He put 4 different meats on my sandwiches, about 5 slices of each. (Compare that to the tiny shavings you get at commercial chains!) There were generous portions of cheese, lettuce (whole leaf), tomatoes, and cucumbers. The end result was MAMMOTH and it cost just $7! Everything was fresh-tasting and the combination of meats was pretty good, even if I didn't get to pick them.

The man does what he wants, has a good time, and takes serious pride in his work. I will gladly make it a point to return sometime.

Venetis20511 Douglas Cres, Langley
Good enough; nothing spectacular
Submitted Sunday, September 27, 2009 - 2:12am [Dine in]

This is a long-standing restaurant that serves a strongly loyal clientele. It is not pretentious or trendy, sporting a dated, mostly wood interior and furniture, and walls dotted with nondescript paintings on the walls. The menu is extensive, with wide-ranging appeal, including numerous steaks, chicken, pastas, seafood, schnitzels, and souvlakis. We ordered four different entrees: two schnitzels, a steak, and a chicken dish. Each was accompanied by a choice of potato or rice, an overcooked vegetable medley, and a very basic salad bar. There was nothing wrong with the main dishes (well, the chicken was a little dry), but none of them inspired any "wows" among us. Our main server was a little slow in getting our orders taken and returned to check on us only at long intervals, but there were other servers to fill water glasses and offer us fixings for the potatoes. Prices were very reasonable, all things considered: $14 for the chicken and the schnitzels, $17 for the steak, less than $5 for a glass of house wine.

On the whole, the experience wasn't good enough that I would drive out of my way to return, but I'd be willing to eat there again if I found myself nearby at dinnertime.

Food is going downhill fast
Submitted Wednesday, September 23, 2009 - 9:55am [Dine in]

Since my last review they have reduced the menu size several times, raised prices several times, and lost quality several times. The fish and chips can be counted on to be overdone. One of my chips yesterday had a chunk of rotted potato in it -- tasted nasty. Pastas are gloppy and uninspired. The place looks pretty nice from and the service has been perfectly acceptable for me recently. But the food has become a real disappointment, especially for the price.

Ashoka Indian Cuisine20530 Fraser Hwy, Langley
Very Average Indian Food
Submitted Saturday, August 15, 2009 - 6:46pm [Dine in]

If this is the best Indian food in Langley, then I think that says more about Langley than it does about Ashoka. We came here with some enthusiasm, looking forward to a birthday dinner treat. We left shrugging our shoulders.

First to the ambiance: it is in a sliver of a building, so there are maybe a dozen tables in two neat rows from front to back. There is bare duct-work showing on walls and ceiling and a long buffet table that occupies space even when not in use. Seats are oriented to have a view either of the bar/cash register/kitchen or the garage-door style window that presumably could be raised of pleasant days. Pictures on the walls and some music were all that I saw in the way of ambiance. At our table we were greeted with a plastic water pitcher. I can't see how this could be rated even average. (Accidentally rated this a 3 the first time around...)

Despite sitting at the table right next to the service area, we sat for over 5 minutes with menus closed waiting to order. Some time later a server came back to ask how spicy we wanted the food. After the food was delivered we got a fresh pitcher of water without asking. That was the only non-essential visit made to our table the whole evening.

The food was just fair. There was nothing unpleasant about the flavours; they just were not inspiring. The Samosas were packed with potato, but had little cumin or other spice. The crust was fairly nice, although the inside of one was still cool. The Hyderabadi Chicken is described as having onions and cashews, but it came in a creamy sauce, like a Korma (not in the description) and there was not a hint of nuttiness to it as there should be with a good Korma. The Rogan Josh was in essentially the same sauce as the Chicken Hyderabadi. We couldn't tell them apart without examining the colour of the meat. The Daal Maharani tasted primarily of clove. The highlight was the Butter CHicken, which was a fairly tasty version of the dish.

The prices for chicken and lamb dishes were $12-$13, which is a little more than what one could get at a lot of other places. Considering the lack of excellence in the food, I would say that was too much.

I would not avoid the place if we were in the area and just dying for some Indian food, but we'll make no special effort to get back.

New York New York Greek Restaurant6361 152 Street, Suite 301, Surrey
Really disappointing
Submitted Sunday, May 24, 2009 - 12:32am [Dine in]

Came here with a group of 6 early Saturday night before a concert. We were looking forward to some pretty good Greek food, considering many of the reviews here. Boy were we ever let down. None of us came away satisfied with our food.

We has 2 vegetarian (spanakopita) entrees, one lamb L'Astoria (shoulder), one halibut, one moussaka, and the little one had a chicken tenders appy with a Caesar salad. All entrees come with the same standard Greek sides: rice, roast potato, Greek salad, pita, and tzatziki. The food came out amazingly quickly, which probably should have been our first clue: everything was just lying around waiting to be ordered (even the "fresh" halibut). The moussaka and lamb were fine, nothing special but not bad; the halibut was rubbery. The worst thing was the Greek salad...how do you ruin that??? The whole thing was dry and limp, like is had been left out in the open air too long. There was an ample helping of flavourless feta and some herbs on top. Meanwhile, the potato tasted like it had soaked too long in lemon juice, and the rice was dry and was no particular boost to the meal.

Entrees ranged from $15-$22, kind of high for Greek, but not bad for good food. The problem is, this wasn't particularly good food. The only thing that keeps the value score up is the portion sizes, which were pretty huge. None of us finished, so we will get at least another meal out of them. I'm not sure whether that's a good thing or a bad thing...

Service was friendly and effective throughout. Nothing wrong there. Finally, the interior is themed but limited by the strip-mall-like location. They couldn't completely seal that out of the scene (my seat had a perfect view of the 64 ave/152 st. intersection and neighbouring train tracks).

I don't know whether this was an off day for the restaurant, or what, but this was well below average for a Greek place. Considering at the higher-than-average prices, I just don't see any reason at all to go back here.

Top-notch Indian food
Submitted Saturday, May 9, 2009 - 11:34pm [Dine in]

Party of five at 6:30 on a Saturday night. We had 5 different dishes, rice and naan, plus a couple of cocktails and a lassi. Every dish was excellent, amone the best I've had in the Lower Mainland! The korma and the butter chicken were creamy and smooth, with subtle flavours, the aloo gobi and channa masala were nicely spiced.

All together, the bill was about $100. The portions were fine, but not huge. Service was attentive and pleasant. The ambiance is nothing special, but not at all shabby. But the food was just awesome, and easily makes this a place worth a visit I definitely wish that I lived closer to it!

Really nice brunch
Submitted Saturday, May 9, 2009 - 11:18pm [Dine in]

Two of us came for brunch on a Saturday morning. Not our first time here, and we've always liked it in the past. On this visit we had the Chicken Corn Hash and the Strawberry French Toast. Both were extremely tasty, well-thought-out creations. The service was friendly and polite from everyone; for example, the hostess commented on my sweatshirt, and the person who brought out our food stayed to make sure that we had everything that we needed.

Like many such chains, the interior is pleasant but not special. Items on the brunch menu are a little pricey (two breakfasts and 2 coffees came to $30), but are definitely not simple the same breakfast items that you'd get everywhere. I'll definitely be back when I want something a little bit different as a medium-upscale brunch.

Mixed reviews
Submitted Sunday, April 26, 2009 - 12:50pm [Dine in]

Dinner here with the family early Saturday evening. I'd been wanting to try this place for some time, having a life-long appreciations for German food. First point: the "German" portion of the menu is a couple of schnitzels. Everything else is the same sort of thing you could find at 10 other restaurants along this strip. That's not such a bad thing, but if you're hoping to hear polkas and drink litres of Hacker-Pschorr, you'll be disappointed.

We had 1Arctic Char, 1 Forester Schnitzel (with mushrooms), 1 special beef tenderloin, and 1 halibut & chips. All of the first three of these came with a standard medley of asparagus and a tasty carrot, and a bit of really nice red pickled cabbage. The two who ordered the char and the tenderloin were extremely happy with their meals (4-5 food rating). Unfortunately, my schnitzel was bordering on black (tapping it with a fork made an audible clunking noise). I sent one of the two pieces back, and they re-made it for me to take home. There was no further compensation. Not only that, the sauce was sparsely offered, and there were maybe a half dozen little slivers of mushrooms for two pieces of schnitzel. Moving on, the fries on the fish-and-chips were quite tasty, but the fish itself was way fishier than halibut should be and called its freshness into question. Half of that was left behind.

I've downgraded service, because any server worth her spit should not have served blackened schnitzels to a customer. That's just Serving 101. Otherwise, she was just fine and would have rated a 4. The ambiance is the same as most other restaurants in the area, particularly on the patio. Finally, the cost for 4 meals, 1 appy, 2 beers, and 2 soft drinks was about $110, plus tip. Not horrible, but for that price we'd definitely expect better.

So I'm sad to say that I won't be back here. I wanted to love it...I really did. There are many other choices on this strip; Uli's has done absolutely nothing to distinguish itself.

Ikea Restaurant & Cafe1000 Lougheed Highway, Coquitlam
Might as well heat up a frozen dinner
Submitted Saturday, April 11, 2009 - 3:41pm [Dine in]

Saw good ratings for this cafeteria, so we decided to try it out when we were in Ikea. My expectations weren't too high: a "good cafeteria" is what I was looking for. After our meal, I was still looking for it. It wasn't this place.

Let's be realistic about what they do here. The Swedish Meatballs are the same ones that they sell in the 1 kilo freezer pack. I do mean the *same ones*, as in, the extent of cooking that they need to do is heat-n-eat. As I was standing in line deciding what to get, they brought up a "fresh" tray of fish for fish and chips -- the whole batch was a medium-dark brown, not at all appetizing. I ended up getting the meatballs. They tasted fine, every bit as good as a decent frozen dinner. Their potatoes are boiled, skin-on, bland as plain potatoes. "Salad" means someone dumps a bag of greens into a giant bowl for people to take from. Dressing comes in packets. Add a drink for $6.50. So it's a fairly inexpensive meal, but I left still hungry, and I'm not a big eater.

"Service" in my case consisted of having someone put 10 of those little meatballs on my plate, ask, "Potatoes OK?", plop a couple down next to the meatballs, dribble a shallow ladle of gravy on the meatballs (not nearly enough to extend to the potatoes), slide the plate across the glass to me and quickly turn to the next customer. I guess that keeps the line moving.

Ambiance, of course, is nonexistent: it is, after all, a store cafeteria. They make no pretense and take no effort to make it any more pleasant than that.

There are probably hundreds of restaurants you can go to that are better and no more expensive. I certainly wouldn't come here just for the cafeteria. If you're in Ikea anyway, it's probably not a total waste, but if you really want "value" you can get 11 of their 50-cent hot dogs plus a pop from the concession downstairs instead for the same price.

Upscale Greek, it's all good
Submitted Sunday, February 15, 2009 - 12:28pm [Dine in]

This place isn't far from our house, so we get in once in a while. It's got a very interesting design to the dining area: a split level with one floor 1/4-staircase down and a second floor 3/4-staircase up. Very nicely made out, it gives a lasting first impression. All wait staff are deliberately dressed to look pleasant and professional, and service has always been thorough and attentive without being intrusive.

Food is a combination of standard Mediterranean fare -- souvlaki, moussaka, various phyllo-wrapped things, and lamb chops (paidakia), along with some pastas. They also tend to have some other dishes, like steaks, halibut and stuffed chicken that are typical of upscale places. Everything that I've ever had there has tasted between good and excellent (I like their Greek ribs and paidakia). Side dishes are the usual rice and roast potatoes, salads, and a vegetable medley of carrots, peppers, and cauliflower. Portions on the side dishes are not as large as in some of the belly-filling mainstream Greek places, and the dishes are perhaps a bit more expensive than usual (Souvlaki last night was $16.)

With their large drink and wine menu and overall ambiance, it's a very nice place to go for a date.

Prairie Cottage Perogies20771 Langley Bypass, #302B, Langley
Good Lunch, Cafe-style
Submitted Friday, January 23, 2009 - 5:33pm [Dine in]

Had lunch here with my wife. Both of us ordered the same thing: Combo #2, with 3 pierogies, 2 cabbage rolls, 1/2 kolbassa, and slaw, with a generous helping of sour cream. All of the food was good. I must say that I have had better kolbassa -- this one was fairly mild -- but the pierogies were delicious. The cabbage rolls were filled with meat and rice and had a little dollop of tomato sauce underneath them. They were good but nothing to write home about. This was a mere $6.95. Diners at other tables were getting enormous bowls of soup (presumably borscht, with long curly purple beet shavings on top), which was something like $5 or $5.50. Definitely a nice place to go to get good food and not spend a lot.

The place is actually connected to a butcher shop and a gourmet food store. There are about 6 tables in the main dining area and a few more in the foyer. The decor is nothing special, unless you like looking through a window at a meat case, and the drinks are all self-serve (pour your own coffee or water, or get a can or bottle out of the refrigerator). The woman serving us was perfectly pleasant and efficient.

It's not especially close to where I normally go, and I wouldn't drive way out of the way to go back there, but I would definitely stop in again if I am in the area and hankering for a good lunch.

Thoroughly enjoyable
Submitted Tuesday, November 11, 2008 - 10:00pm [Dine in]

Family came here for dinner on Tuesday night. About 1/3 full this night. The owner and a server greeted us at the door, welcomed us, and took us to a table. The owner came to tell us about specials, describing some of the preparation details -- they all sounded great. In the end we all chose pasta dishes. We shared and all got to taste each others' dishes. All were terrific! I wouldn't describe them as delicately flavoured, rather more "robust". Everyone agreed that all 4 dishes were something they would enjoy a meal of.

Service was professional and friendly. We made no special requests, other than a half-order for our youngest. Everything was done with a smile. Pastas were in the $13-$17 range, and entrees generally a bit more than that. Portions of the pasta were satisfactory: not huge but not tiny. The decor is tasteful but not outrageous or exciting. The tables and place settings give the impression of a high-class establishment.

The family was enthusiastic in declaring that we would happily return.

Desi Lounge & Restaurant8821 120th St, Delta
Good meal, we'll go again
Submitted Tuesday, October 7, 2008 - 12:12am [Dine in]

My wife and I had an hour or so to kill on a Monday night so we decided to eat out. We picked Desi Junction out of the Entertainment Book and in we went. I love good Indian food and can't tolerate bad. We ordered chicken korma, aloo gobi, and dal makhni, with garlic naan and rice. The dal was a little bland, perhaps, but not bad. The korma was very good. There were only 5 pieces of chicken in the sauce, but they were large pieces, several bites each. The aloo gobi was full-bodied. One complaint is that two of the dishes had inedible bits in them (bay leaves and stems of something).

Service was perfectly adequate. It was attentive until the place got busy, and then the server was hustling around trying to keep everyone happy. Servings were decent-sized. We will get lunches out of each. Finally, the interior is mostly standard restaurant, with booths and tables. The decor is pleasant. There are TVs up high, two of which were playing Indian music videos.

It wasn't the best I've ever had, but it certainly wasn't at all bad. I'd go back when I'm in the area.

Oh, BTW: Whereas some places take off the price of the smallest dish (even appys sometimes) using the Entertainment Book coupon, this place took off the largest price. Maybe it was because we ordered 3 dishes for 2 people, but it was nice and unexpected.

A very nice dinner
Submitted Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 11:43pm [Dine in]

We made our second visit to Sonoma Grill with another couple. We ordered only meals and wines, no appys or desserts. The meals were from the high end of the menu: three of us had the pesto halibut and risotto and one had the lamb. All of us agreed that the meals were excellent. The service was attentive and professional at every step. The meals took a rather long time to arrive. We didn't care about the time, as we were enjoying conversation, but under other circumstances we might have been bothered.

The meals were appropriately sized to be eaten in one sitting, so a big appetite may want more food than just the entree. Entrees are "family-restaurant" priced (our meals were each about $30), but the quality of food that you get for your money is very high. We were there on a Friday evening, and the restaurant was busy and fairly noisy. There was nothing special about the ambiance.

On the whole we were very satisfied with the evening. We will be back on special occasions.

The owner called me to explain...
Submitted Sunday, September 7, 2008 - 8:11pm [Dine in]

After my unpleasant experience reported on yesterday with a refused entertainment card, one of the owners called me this afternoon. He told me that there was some confusion in their dealings with the Entertainment Book publishers, and that they had not realized that people would come in with cards from the 2009 book and that they would have to punch the cards. He admitted that they did not handle the discount properly during my visit. He assured me that they would check with the publishers to be sure that they handle the cards correctly, and have a card punch available in the future.

Without going into too many details, he is making arrangements for us to return for a visit that is uncorrupted by questions of shady dealings. We will likely give the restaurant another try soon, because, except for the part where we felt that we were being treated dishonestly, it was otherwise a fairly pleasant evening. So I'll "cleanse my palate" of this event and revise the ratings now to reflect how we might have felt in absence of the card fiasco. I'll re-rate it once and for all after we make the return visit.

PS: I concur with a previous reviewer: The butternut squash soup really was excellent. Not at all bland like many are, this one has a bit of a kick to it, along with with shredded ginger and coconut milk.
