I have been here a few times, first time was mind blowing has the service was top rate and the staff was friendly and caring, met the Manager and she was very good help us order what was to be an amazing pizza ever. My husband was hooked since on their pizza and the other food is also very good.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants quite and clean dinning experience has well value for your dollar.
Horrible service and horrible food. Never again. Manager called me a bitch and told me that I put my order in wrong. Horrible customer service. Even the delivery guy barely could speak english. Just overall horrible service. I will never support TJ's ever again. How do I make a formal complaint? I would like to formally get this manager fired for making me feel like I did something wrong.
Mandarin is one of those restaurants that stay the same through time. I came back here after months and found everything to be the same. Now, while sometimes that is good, but there were some things, like their service, that I wish would have changed through the years.
But what keeps this restaurant bustling is their food. It is authentically GOOD. Probably the best in Saskatoon if you ask me. Because if it were for its ambience decor and service, this place would not be as popular. The restaurant does not seem to bother doing renovations or anything of the sort, it seems to run on its old customers? Because the outside exterior is not very inviting. Inside it is messy, and the way you are treated and served here by the waitresses leaves you dissatisfied. Yet it always gets busy, and let me tell you the restaurant is not small by any chance. Lots of people come in large groups of families so plan ahead - I had a problem getting a table and we were only three.
Likes: food - dim sum, gai lan, pekin pork chop
Just coming back here brings me memories of early business meetings or readings. Moka was my go-to place when I used to live here. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to come back here because I suspected it would have changed for the worse.
Thankfully, none of that happened. It is just like how I left it: small, cozy and intimate. I like coming here because it has that real coffee shop kind of feel to it - Starbucks and others are too over hyped and over sold. The coffee here is better and the options to choose are endless. There are several drinks to choose from, hot and cold. I would recommend a macchiato w/ whipped cream and caramel syrup. Nothing beats that with a cheesecake or muffin.
You know a place is really good when you are a meat lover and you don't mind eating (and loving!) the vegetarian options on the menu. The food in this little hole in the wall is simply something you can't get enough of.
While they serve common items on the menu you will find in most mexican restaurants as staples - fajitas, tacos, burritos etc. - the way they are made here is something else. Fresh, to go and nothing like fast food. The vegetarian burrito is usually why I would come down here, back in the day when I used to work and live in Saskatoon, but their are other options on the menu as well. Other things I would recommend are, besides the burritos of course: pork fajitas, beef enchiladas, or if you are short on money, grilled tacos. The prices are not too high for the food though.
Although H67 has always been famous for their pizzas, I come here for their falafel & donairs.
I can't think of any other place in this city that can make better donairs than H67. For Saskatoon I mean. The donairs or shawarma, however you want to call it come with very tasty meat. I like getting the lamb one and combine it with some good tzaziki or ranch sauce. On top of that, the prices are real good.
So I normally wouldnt be reviewing a place like Pita Pit not because it is not worth it, but because I would think that it is all standar d/ the same (like any other franchise place, you know?) but after having been to the one downtown, this way is miles better. Word of advice: if you like your pita, do yourself a favor and go to this one. The other one will leave you with a bad impression...I went to the other one and it was a very unpleasant experience: in a nutshell, it was a combination of poor customer service, order mix-ups and lack of ingredients...and just simply SLOW.
The one on 8th street is something else though, which is the one I chose to review. The staff is friendly and quick with their orders. I like coming here to get a chicken breast or if I am feeling less adventurous, a good old black forest ham. The smoothies are good too - made fresh w/ natural ingredients.
WOW how I had missed this place. Nothing can beat the smell of freshly baked bagles. I loved coming here and still do for some bagels with cream cheese. They really are GREAT Canadian bagles.
Love: cream cheese on a bagel, western egg and cheese on a bagel.
Friendly service and quick. Just can't wait to go back and get a bag of bagels.
Tjs is one of those pizza places that used to resonate in my head. Back when I used to live in Saskatoon, I used to order from them all the time. The pizza was always consistently good (at least I never had a bad order). There is a plethora of toppings to choose from and the crust is simply delicious. You can't beat it.
This time around, I was met with a completely different view. I dont know if orders have gotten sloppy, it was a bad day for them etc, but as a former loyal customer of them, I was very disappointed. I ordered two bacon chicken ranch for my friends and I and when the delivery guy comes over ONE HOUR LATER, he brings the wrong order. There was no apology from him or anyone when I had to wait over two hours for my pizza. Anywhere else, this would be considered unacceptable. I guess here not.
Me and La Bamba Cafe go way back. A friend recommended me this place for authentic mexican food. As a BC resident, I can be hard to impress. But La Bamba did not disappoint, the food is actually really good. Yeah, I still dont know how to spell it, what a shame but the chilaqiles de pollo are really good. But I usually go for the sopes or tacos.
Pricing warning: not a cheap mexican place! But a good one nonetheless.
after years of lovin verns pizza on 11th st in saskatoon and spending 200 to 300 per month on take out and delivery. This last year has been hell for the quality of food i have recieved cold and or burnt pizza time after time or burnt dry ribs and alway a excuss from staff when phoned about the problem. tonight it was a ignorant person on the phone, that has ended my long term loyality to ordering from this place ever again. thanks for not caring about your customers. BYE BYE
Eastside Marios Urbanspoon Review
Statistics show that 96% of unhappy customers don’t complain, and that 91% of those will simply leave and never come back. We complained and you won’t believe what happened. We had a birthday party dinner for our 15 year daughter and 7 friends booked at ESM. Four hours before the dinner my wife spoke to the manager Kendal who confirmed the reservation and told my wife there would be a complimentary dessert, Happy Birthday sung and a prize wheel to spin. The girls arrived at 5:30pm and dined on their own until 7:40pm. My wife and I arrived and asked for Jen the server. I thanked Jen the server for serving the girls and for the birthday celebrations. Oddly she said nothing. I gave her a $30.00 tip and again said nothing. When we got home the girls told us there were no birthday celebrations! During the time our daughter’s party was at ESM there were 3 or 4 other birthday celebrations completed by the staff. Next day I called ESM and spoke to Kendal the manager who was the one who spoke to my wife the day of the birthday dinner. Kendal blamed Jen the server, did not apologize and offered a complimentary dinner which I declined. I did the on-line survey located on the bottom of our receipt and I week later I received an email from Dave Head Office Rep for Cara Restaurants ([email protected]) a senior manager of Cara Operations (ESM, Montanas, Kelseys, Swiss Chalet, Harveys, Milestones, Caseys, Biermarkt, Prime Pubs) . He asked for details of our concerns which now included how we were treated by Jen the server and Kendal the manager on the phone. Next we received an email from Ryan the Kitchen manager who apologized (for who knows what) and said he spoke to Kendal the manager and Jen the server and does not know why there were no celebrations! He offered to redo the birthday up to only six girls not eight. Again with the gift card! We asked that their offer be extended to a less fortunate family which he agreed to but the Area Manager for Western Canada Cara Foods (Greg) and Ryan only authorized $75.00. We spent $226.75 for eight guests which works out to $170.06 for six guests which we ourselves were offered but not for a less fortunate family? So after numerous emails to the manager, Kitchen manager and Greg exactly three weeks since the botched birthday celebration no one has shared with us who was responsible for not providing the celebrations as promised nor has anyone taken responsibility for how we have been treated by the Eastside Marios/Cara Foods staff. Does anyone at East Side Marios Saskatoon understand what taking responsibility for your mistakes including how you mistreat customers means????? ESM/Cara Foods seems to say “Offer a meaningless apology, do not take responsibility for ANYTHING and offer a gift card.” My advice: If you are not happy with your service complain. Do the on-line survey and if you lost your receipt email Dave. If nothing else you may receive a gift card! If you don’t want to use it (can’t blame you), drop it off at 20 Station West or the Saskatoon Foodbank for a less fortunate family.
Every time i go to Midtown Plaza always make sure i visit Extreme Pita in Food court of Midtown Plaza.
Never gets bored as there is so many receipe options to choose from, and there are so many stuff as Smoothies, Pizza, Coffee & Tea...... Staff is always smiling and welcoming you..
Love it !!!
Great Food and Excellent service....
Lots of option to choose from - Greek / Thai / Pizza / Smoothie / Italian / Vegetarian Falafal etc....
Very convenient as the guy who came just billed us so easy to deal with...
Overall Outstanding experience at Extreme Pita - Midtown Plaza, Saskatoon I will suggest specially all corporate who likes to have a healthy food not the junk food with not compromising on the taste.
That was the most cheweee-ist calamari I have eaten, clog blocking Cesar salad which t tasted like a whole lot of butter or margerine it seemed but the spinach salad was good, maybe because we added our own dressing. Couldn't believe that restraunt didn't have olive oil. Not use to eating like this.
I really wanted to like this place.
The food is disgusting and undercooked.
Prison food would be be a step up.
The waitress was really nice, but the manager is a horrible person. When I complained about the food the manager came over and gave me nothing but attitude. She even yelled at me and told me i knew nothing. She refused to remove the bad meal from the bill. I also think she stole the cash tip I left on the table for the waitress.
Save your money and go elsewhere.
I went in at my lunch break before noon to get some slices. There was a person who just went in right before me. The place reeked like pot, there was an older man who could have been a driver and a worker. We noticed the worker was eating something. He wiped his mouth with a napkin, and itched his nostrils and asked us what we would like. The person ahead of me grabbed a pop and asked for a slice of double double. The guy didn't even wash his hands and went and grabbed him a slice with his dirty fingers (his finger nails were chewed as well) touching the crust of the pizza. He didn't even wear gloves, handled money, and then asked me what I wanted.I asked for his name and he said it was Mike and he was the manager. I couldn't believe it, so I walked out. This guy should take a food safety course and a course in hygiene. I wish I could talk to the owner about this, I'd rather drive to 8th Street and get my pizza now, but I'm worried that it might be the same thing.
I dont agree with the person who just commented this tim hortons as worst.I am so happy to have this timmis near to my home.Breakfast time is so busy there and i never found any problem of poor service till day.Staff is so good.I was surprised when i noticed that that timmis staff remember even my order.I am not gonna compare this tim hortons with other tim hortons because there will be always a difference..its a tiny tim hortons but still its fulfilling our all needs.I usually go there in the morning,everything is so fresh.I am happy to see that their such a tiny showcase have almost all varieties of donuts.I don know when they have only plain timbits.I usually buy all glazed timbits like choclate,apple fritter,honey dip,rasberry,lemon and rasberry filled.That location is not that much popular among people bcz this timmis dont have dine in and drive thru..so we cant expect everything everytime there.I hope when this location will get busier then they do have all the things ready all the time.Their staff is so friendly..and about english,i dont wanna comment lolzz..we are not going there for gossips.So..its your wish,u want to avoid or u want to go there.
I am a previous regular customer, and employee. Two years ago Bridges was arguably the most comfortable, hospitable bar a patron could walk into on the west side of Saskatoon. Ran from top to bottom by the best manager a bar could ever ask for. Their turnover rate was incredibly low with a highly efficient staff. However, in the past 3 months they have let go of 2 GMs (both of which worked countless hours of unpaid overtime), 1 night manager, and several other loyal staff. The bar is now ran by their hot-headed, impulsive son, who cares little about the serious decline in the establishment and more about getting new toys like a $5000 slurpee machine (for a BAR). You could find better management skills from the people you might find in the parking lot breaking into your car. Working on the other side of the bar I can name more than enough things that would stop you from wanting to ever eat there. But if you agree that the public bathroom plunger can be used as a tool to unclog the sink behind the bar, perhaps this is the place for you.
** "The owners are selfish people, and do not care about there patrons" - 20 year customer
** If you choose to go there only order bottles, because no one refills the dish washer fluid, so all your getting is a glass rinsed with cold water. And you can find cleaner ice in a third world country.
** Almost everything in the basement is rotting, so if you're looking to do a steak night I highly recommend taking your business elsewhere!
Selection is always terrible, they usually have barely any donuts, if you want a bagel they're usually out of any kind other than plain, if you want a sandwich they'll have one bun left, always stale. All the donut baskets are empty, don't bother buying a box of timbits because they'll all be plain. Doesn't usually bother me but some amongst the staff seem to have very little English comprehension which just makes the entire experience that much more irritating.
It amazes me that it is possible to mess up what is practically pre-packaged food. I live within 2 minutes walking distance of this location but if I feel like Tim Hortons I will drive the ten minutes to Cumberland to avoid this one. Avoid it!
