The mithai sweets at Basant sweets are just awesome. The food is okay to good. Service was good. Ambience is okay and since it is new it is reasonably clean.
will go again to this place to eat. Payal buisness center has bloomed into such a good place to go.
- Kachori - awesome
- Milk Cake -awesome
- ladoo- awesome.
Good food but the dine experience was really poor, the waiteress was borderline rude. Washroom was very dirty and there was no toilet paper. Cutlery was all scratched up. The place had an overall rundown feel and looks like a halwai shop in India. The prices were middle of the pack though so expected better from the place.
- Bhindi - awesome
- Naan and other bread - good
- Paneer - awesome
- kachori - so so
- gujiya - stale
- achar - stale
Might take-out but will not dine in here again.
I love their steamed buns! Hate the parking, Hate the service....But I will and have put up with that for years and I would still go back! If parking is an issue (Which it is in Surrey), there are locations in Richmond and Vancouver Chinatown. They do have a website too!
Had horrible tasting experiance with the take out food for sandwiches and meat pastries.....tastes raw, no good quality ingredients atall....have tried twice since i work in the surrey central mall nearby , dissapointed both times..will advise all my friends not to waste your money here...although service seems friendly, but what good does that do if the first thought in your mind is ..yuck, what a waste of time.
I love their baked goods and their won ton noodle is not bad. Haven't tried the other items. However, the service needs improvement. You can be standing there and waiting but they won't help you until they are finish talking to one another. They one lady that I see all the time always seems so grumpy and never smiles. I sometimes feel rushed when I'm deciding what I want. Parking is a nightmare.
Good food. The service can be poor at times, especially during lunch time. We ordered 2 platters to go but didn't realize that they forgot our pita bread until we got back to work. We called them to complain and because they were busy in store they sounded rude on the phone and quickly hung up after they told us to come back and get it. We drove all the way back and the guy just quickly gave us the pita bread and went about his business with the next customer. Nothing extra and importantly not even an apology. We still go here when we are craving donair but that one time did leave a scar. I have to mention that the ladies that work there are much friendlier.
We are a big fan of Akasaka and decided to try this place through a friend's recommendation. Overall it isn't bad and better than some others we've tried in Surrey but for the price we paid for our dinner we would prefer to go to Akasaka. We ordered the Ebi Mayo, Tiger Roll, Spicy Roll, Sockeye Salmon Sashimi, and one other roll with scallop. The Tiger Roll was HUGE and was my favorite out of all the other dishes. The Spicy Ramen tasted like instant noodles with an egg and chopped up veggies which I could've made at home for a fraction of the price.
Tried it for the first time because we happened to drive by and saw their Special Sign. Ordered 2 Dynamite Rolls and 2 Negitoro Rolls to go. Dynamite Rolls were average, nothing special that I couldn't get elsewhere but the Negitoro Rolls were nasty. The Tuna didn't taste fresh, had a fishy taste, ate one piece and had to throw away the rest. I probably won't go here again since there are better places around the area.
My family have always lived in Vancouver and love eating out. Sushi is one of my favorites so when we had to move to Surrey for business I was upset to be so far away from all my favorite restaurants. A friend recommended us to Akasaka and were pleasantly impressed. Everything is fresh and their sauces are unique. Some of our favorites are Ebi Mayo, Queen's Roll, Popcorn Scallop, Scallop Salad, Sockeye Salmon Sashimi. Pretty much any or their specialty rolls are good. Service is friendly however, they are not too good when it comes to large parties, had some mistakes on our orders but then again most restaurants will get that once and awhile.
The staff were awesome. Welcomed us with a smile. Asked what we would like. Waited patiently while we decided and offered suggestions to us. Reminded us we could get it toasted & asked which cheese we would like. Still smiling & encouraging she moved us to the fresh vegetable section. Working with us to complete our sandwiches she continued to smile & listen to us as we chose our selections even tho the line was growing behind us. She never made us feel we were taking too long & completed our experience by thanking us for coming in. Loved it!
Went here after I read a couple of very positive reveiews. I had the lunch buffet that cost $8.50/person. The lunch buffet was limited with 6 salads and 8 main course. They had the traditional bean salads and the pork dishes and some chicken drumsticks. My overall honest impression was that it was ok. I guess I had very high expectation after the previous review said that this place should be on the Triple D and Food network. I would not go that far. The food was satisfactory. Nothing really stands out as "I have to have it". It tasted decent but I will not go out of my way to eat there as the food for the most part tasted the same. The service was very attentive and the owners I believe were very friendly. Maybe I went there on an off day as there was only two tables occupied including my own. Overall impression..."meh"
This restaurant looks soo good! Definitley not what you would expect for the area, this restaurant looks like it could be downtown Vancouver. Food is good and prices are great considering what a nice experience the restaurant is. The food came out quickly and was what you expect for Thai food. Also had nice presentation. Definitely eat here!
First thing I noticed about the food was how fresh the ingredients were. Something you don't often see at other Pho restaurants. There stuff is priced a bit more but it is worth it. There spring rolls are amazing, put all others we've tried before to shame. Decor is modern and a nice change from what you often get in the subarbs. Owners give great service also. Definitely a good spot to eat all round!
Food and service is good. However, the soup can be cold at times. Ask them to heat it a bit longer. I love their mangolion beef and fried rice. Cantonese noodles are also very delicious. Prices could be a bit lower for the amount of portions they provide. Overall Asian Spice is a good experience!
I visit this place quite a bit. Absolutely love the food! Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. The dinner plate can easily feed 2. Donairs are awesome and they stuff them with a lot of meat unlike other places. But my favourite has to definitely be the naan, you can't really find this kind of naan anywhere in Vancouver. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking to try Pakistani-Indian food.
The food is absolutely delicious, and the service is excellent. The black bean sauce noodle is not too oily or salty and the quantity is very large. It's a wonderful combination with the pickled radish. The sweet and chili chicken comes out crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, which is what it's supposed to be! YUM. I tried the rice cake with seafood soup, and if you love seafood, you'll love this. Once, the manager?I believe, gave us complimentary fried dumplings! Clearly, I have been here many times and also ordered take-outs. Never disappointed. The servers are always very friendly and attentive, it's like they really actually care about you eating their food! The prices are good too. You must go!! It's amazingly wonderful food with yummy Korean side dishes! :)
I used to go to Ashiana all the time when they had their location in Vancouver. Unfortunately, I had moved to Langley and could not go nearly as much. Then when I heard that they had opened a location in Surrey I was ecstatic.
I recently got a chance to try it out and I could not believe how great the food was. The restaurant looked modern and great and the food was the best Indian food I had tried in Surrey. I felt obligated to try the butter chicken and it was just as great as it was in Vancouver, easily their crown dish. I also tried some Fish Pakoras and Lamb Saag and they were absolutely delicious. Everything tasted fresh and well prepared. The service was also excellent as the staff made sure we always had everything we needed.
Overall I head a great experience I definitely will be coming back again and bringing my friends.
For a restaurant that had only been open a week, we were amazed at the quality of food, service and make-over. It used to be the Mug & Musket some years back, then it morphed into first one then another sports bars, neither a big draw.
We tried the Greek platter for two, just so we could sample a variety. Everything was excellent, with only a minor complaint; I found the roast lamb just a little too salty and fatty for my taste, but the rest was delicious and the Calamari was the best I have ever eaten.
Even the salads were first rate, the creamy Greek dressing was really good and the Caesar salad was made with a traditional dressing, that I haven’t tasted in a very long time (it’s the anchovy’s people).
We thought we were as full as possible, but Mike showed up with a complimentary Crème Brule for us to share, he browned it at the table and it was light, delicious and appreciated.
A few weeks later we ordered Take Out, and again we were not disappointed. It was just as good and we were able to drink our own wine.
Surrey needs more restaurants like Greek NightZ.
Great food, great ambience, great service.
$15 a plate of warmed up food. I cook alot of rice and I know the smell of rice when it goes bad. Let me tell you it smelled so terrible. The rice was hard and the beans had an orange crust over them.There was nothing bright in the plate. We had a table of 12 and we all went home to cook food. I feel none should have paid for the food but we are a nice bunch of people and stilled paid and tipped. The service was bad. None was there and the place smells horrible. Too bad cute restaurant. I guess we should have realized the place was bad since none was there. I am not one to complain and I am not picky at all. Not to mention I have never gone out of my way to review a place and I did for this place. Waste if time... Wish I had a plate of cereal at home instead!! Seriously. Good luck.
Northern Tadka has changed its name (and location) to Tadka Taste of India - at #104 - 13030 76 Avenue, Surrey. A rose, by any other name, would smell as sweet - and so is the quality of food and service. Northern Tadka or Taste of India - the brain and the 'tadka' remain above par - excellent!
The new place is significantly smaller than the earlier location - so on a busy day, getting a place could be a problem. But bearing in mind the treats waiting for you accompanied by personalized service - it's worth the wait.
Do give the 'daal' a try. With special 'tadka' it's one of my favourites.
