Angelo's Pizza5501 204 Street, #111, Langley
I am in love...
Submitted Friday, February 13, 2009 - 10:56pm [Dine in]

I was having a serious craving for pizza. And having already eaten my fair share of flying-wedge, pizza hut, domino's and Mrs. Vanelli's (all within one week :P) I used google maps to find a new pizza place... and I am so glad that I did. I ordered the lunch special that was being served on Thursday (8" 2-topping personal pizza and a coke for $5.99 - tax included). I chose mushrooms and in deciding what type of olives, I went for green. Angelo's pizza is probably the only place where you can get authentic green olives on your pizza, and if you've never tried it, you must! The cashier was very friendly, and genuinely cared about providing great service. The pizza was fresh and not greasy, and I loved the crust which was crisp on the outside and chewy near the center. The restaurant itself has a lot of space to sit down, and a few fun video-games in the back. This place is great, and I will definitely be back.

Flying Wedge Pizza Co.20125 64th Street, #106, Langley
Seriously Addicted
Submitted Wednesday, February 4, 2009 - 1:03pm [Dine in]

I don't know what was going through my head this week, but for some reason I was really craving pizza. Monday: went to the movies and splurged on a personal pizza at pizza-hut, Tuesday: bought a $5 pizza from little caesars... then Wednesday night, after my lecture I wanted some late night grub and the closest pizza place was the Flying Wedge. I had never gone in before, but have found myself eying the place so I figured "why not!?"

It's a great thing I decided to go in... their pizza is frickin' fantastic. I can't even explain it. They also have great deals for students (1 slice + pop for $3.50) and they have their late-night special of any slice for $3.50 after 8pm. I tried their Thai-something pizza and was blown away... they use seriously gourmet ingredients and the taste just blows your mind. My favorite part of the pizza has and always will be the crust, and the Flying Wedge makes THE BEST CRUST! It's kind of like a focaccia bread, and when topped with pizza toppings it's just amazing. I always take my pizza to go (because their boxes are so cute) and have never been disappointed.

Sorry this post is so ADHD, but hey what can I say when my mind is blown away by awesome pizza :P Oh, the staff is very hospitable and friendly and the restaurant itself has a great vibe to it. If you love pizza, or even just 'like' it, you must try Flying Wedge at least once. Ask for a loyalty card (then register it online) and you get 5000 loyalty points which equals 1 free slice of pizza! DO IT!

Congee Noodle King3313 Kingsway, Vancouver
Okay Food, Horrible Service
Submitted Friday, August 22, 2008 - 3:31pm [Dine in]

I wasn't expecting anything superb out of this small Congee/Noodle joint, but I was expecting at least a pleasant dining experience. I'm not sure what was up with their poor, poor service... the place wasn't even that busy. My family and I decided to dine here on a weekday evening around 6pm after a long day at Kits beach. The waitress promptly seated us; but offered us only 2 menus to share between the 7 of us, which I thought odd considering there was only one other table being occupied by customers. I kindly asked for another menu, but this garnered no reaction from the server and thus, I had to help myself. Once we were ready to order, the woman taking down our order barely acknowledged that we were there. We told her what dishes we wanted, she did not even look at us, and did not nod to suggest that she had even heard us speak. After the orders were sent to the kitchen, the food came out rather quickly. The food was tasty and the dishes were reasonably portioned, but the mediocre quality of the food did little to save their horrid service.

There were fruit flies floating around the dining room and many of them decided to land and wander around our food. We gave the restaurant the benefit-of-the-doubt, because it was a hot day and they had chosen to prop the front door open. So, we did not complain about the pesky little bugs... that was until one of them made it's way into my friends bowl of noodle soup. We kindly asked that we recieve another bowl of soup, one that was free of flies and the only response we recieved from our server was "you have to watch out for the flies" (in a sort of blaming tone). My mom argued with our server in Mandarin and managed to get another bowl of soup noodles. We thought that our worries were over; that was until we realized that the kitchen had simply added more soup and noodles to the same bowl and removed the fly... how rude! Our total came to $36.80, and since the restaurant takes cash only, my mother paid in $40. The cashier made no sign that she was going to give us our change (she worked slowly, and did not make eye contact with my mother who was waiting patiently for her money). But my mom wouldn't back down; so, begrudgingly, the cashier handed over the change and my mom gave her only $1 worth of tips (a very generous action, because in my opinion they did not deserve one red-cent).

Overall, the dining experience was a disaster. I would not wish this type of service on anyone. Even though the decor is decent, the food decently priced, and decently portioned, the people who run this business are far from decent. I work in the service industry and I know how hard it is to work with people at times, but customers never deserve to be treated the way my family was treated at the Congee Noodle King. We will never be back there again... anyways, Hon's serves the same types of dishes with much more variety and their service is impeccable. Don't waste your time at this run-of-the-mill noodle joint. Just don't...

Great Food, Great Time... just an overall great place
Submitted Tuesday, March 18, 2008 - 6:23pm [Dine in]

I really enjoyed my dining experience at Ho Do. I would never have even known that it existed, it's location seemed so hidden, but my parents had heard of this restaurant from some colleagues at work. The atmosphere was okay, not too crowded and not too hurried. The servers were pleasant and the owner was very helpful. Looking at the place, it would seem that this is just an ordinary chinese restaurant with regular chinese dishes; but, when you take a look at the menu, you'll see a variety of great authentic asian dishes. My family ordered the beef with gai lan, braised cod and bean-curd hotpot, and the fried chicken. All these were wonderfully fresh, generously portioned and at a decent price. What's great about the dinner's here is that if you order a set dinner with two-items or more, you will recieve complimentary lettuce wraps and CRAB! We order our crab with spicy rock salt and chili, but they also give the option of creamy butter sauce as well. I must say that the dining experience at Ho Do was one of my best at a Chinese restaurant, and I will definitely be going back.

Neptune Seafood Restaurant8171 Ackroyd Road, #100, Richmond
I love this place...
Submitted Saturday, November 17, 2007 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

My family goes here at least once a month, if not more. We always go for their early morning (9:00am) dim sum special, where all dim sum dishes are only $2.50. And for the price you pay, you get really good food. My favourite is their radish pastry and I'm a sucker for their fried-pumpkin cake. The decor is beautiful and the food is great. The only thing they need to work on is a service problem that we always seem to face whenever we come. Somehow, all the times we have eaten at Neptune, they manage to forget one of our dishes. We then have to remind the floor manager that we'd been waiting for quite some time, and then finally we get our last dish. Oh well, sometimes we don't even bother asking them to bring out our last dish... because we always order more than we can finish (maybe they know that)Strange?!?!

Won't be seeing me again
Submitted Saturday, November 17, 2007 - 11:02pm [Dine in]

Last weekend, I went with my family for yum cha and we decided to try East No.1. We arrived around noon and only had to wait 15 minutes for a table (not bad, considering it was at peak time). The restaurant was very crowded and it seemed as if they squeezed as many tables as they could into the restaurant while giving minimal space for the push-carts to move. I had my chair hit a couple of times by the food-carts, and never heard a "sorry" or "excuse me".

I have nothing negative to say about the food, it all looked and tasted very good. The presentation was nice, and they had a great variety of dishes to choose from. The service, on the other hand, stunk and is the reason I will never go back. No matter how good their food is, people do not deserve to be treated like garbage!

For a long narrative, continue reading...
I can understand that the restaurant was busy, but that does not mean you can disregard customer service. One lady in particular must've been having a crappy day, because when we asked her for chili sauce, she begrudgingly gave us one tiny dish (for the 5 of us!) We then asked her for a second one and she gave us one more, but with a frustrated face. After about 3 dishes, we ran out of chili (my family is renouned for our chili using abilities) so we asked for more. The closest server to our table was, unluckily, the same lady who gave us chili the first time. My mom held out the dish, and the lady walked right past her! When my mom asked again, the lady grabbed her chili bottle and angrily squirted my mom's dish and then quickly stormed away.
After that experience, I began to notice that the whole restaurant seemed to be in a "rushed" mode. The push-carts were being wheeled around like race cars, and the servers were talking so quickly you could barely make out what they were asking. It was as if they wanted you to eat-and-leave ASAP.
