I've literally been here 3 times this week for uthapam alone. It's a kind of crepe that is a vegetarian's delight with choice of 3 toppings. I usually choose tomato, onions and green chillis. Madras coffee is out of this world! If you are a foodie and want to try very good South Indian food, you must try this place. It is in Newton and a bit difficult to find. Other favorites of mine are the lamb dosa, chicken 69, & spring masala dosa. The business is family run and has become one my favorite places.
Made reservations for a party of 10. Arrived at 6:30. Ordered by 6:45. Two people at our table ordered salads to start and they arrived 20 min later. Drinks were taking 15+ min to arrive and the servers response was 'oh, they haven't been brought out yet?' I believe that is your job as our server is it not?
After waiting for nearly an hour and watching other tables who had arrived after us finish their meals I asked to speak to the manager. He explained they were extremely busy, short staffed and everyone was in the same boat. Not the tables who were seated after us and had already finished appies and mains... He then said it was because our table had ordered appetizers so there is a wait between them and mains and our pizzas were going in the oven right now.
It made no sense!! A table of friends of ours had arrived 10 min after us and was done their appies and mains and were settling up their bill. It was close to 8:00pm!
Being in the service industry for years myself I found his explanation to be ridiculous. A table behind us of 14 for all their meals before us and they arrived at 7pm.
After all this we still had to wave the waiter down for drink refills. And ask a few times as he always forgot.
We were never offered any pizza bread or something to tides us over while we waited. We had an 11 month old with us and he wasn't offered anything either.
It was pretty upsetting! When the pizza did come out it was just ok. Nothing like we were used to eating there. Some people did love their pizzas tho.
Extremely disappointed and will NOT be going back!
The manager did offer free desserts to us, which only half the table received. We also received 25% off our bills and a gift cert. Sadly it didn't make up for the 1.5 hr wait and horrible lame excuses and service.
I was at Town Hall for the first time for a fundraiser. The place is pretty nice, wait staff if superb, very friendly and able to keep us happy despite the slow service. We waited almost 2 hours for a burger and fries. It wasn't worth the wait either, the burger was pretty tastless although it looked good. Lacked seasoning. I don't know if the quality suffered because it was a fundraiser night or if they just don't know how to makes burgers and fries. I had fun there because I was with some pretty cool friends. But I don't think i would go back there.
For 11.99 lunch and I think either 14.99 or 15.99 for dinner, i am not going to complain.
i came for the lunch and all these reviews here keep saying how bad this place is. well you're paying 12 bucks. it's either here or mcd and here is 100 times better than mcd.
for 12 bucks, this is what you can expect.
- 50-60 items to choose from, 75% of them were, surprisingly, quite good.
- utensils, plates, tables were all clean.
- pork, chicken, seafood - read again - SEAFOOD. seafood is shrimp, squid and fish. fried squid is awesome.
- not overly greasy, as what many are saying. food is slightly better than food court chinese food.
- the fish and seafood are best tasting. although frozen, they do what they can to make the seafood tasty.
- dessert is not bad - ice cream, cookies and cakes. ice cream is not half melted but at perfect temperature.
- the honey garlic ribs and sweet and sour porks are good tasting.
- great service.
- pork is not the freshest, not as in going bad, but using yesterday's leftovers.
- sushi is not cold enough but fresh ingredients used nonetheless. a maintaining issue.
- pork hock could use a little more flavor and longer cooking time.
- fried chicken drums sticks were dry but good flavors and crunchy.
again, the pros far outweigh the cons and for 12 bucks lunch, it beats out uncle willy's by a long shot despite uncle willing having a far superior location.
one recommendation to the owners is to clean up the outside building walls. a fresh coat of paint would do wonders for this restaurant's external look as, initially if you drive by, you would think this building was getting prepped for demo or razing.
i would return whenever possible if i am in surrey. it's really good value and decent quality.
This is a very well run "IHOP" location. My sister & I arrived shortly after 10 a.m. this Sunday morning. The waiting area was so full it extended outside of the restaurant. Yikes. We gave our name for the wait list. A mere 15 minutes later our name was called!
There were many servers and all staff seemed well organized. We received our food within a few minutes of ordering it and probably left about a half hour later. Completely hassle free.
We ordered "Cheese Blintz" and "Raspberry Sweet Cream Cheese Crepes". DEEElicious! Can't get them at any other chain restaurant in the Lower Mainland either.
Note, during peak hours the parking lot fills up quickly so you may have to park outside of it.
We had a nice meal on the patio on Canada Day. The restaurant is right on the Canada US border. You take the last exit before the crossing to the US.
The theme of the restaurant is very much horse racing and they have many posters inside the restaurant of various horse races and each table has a screen that has horse racing. I much preferred our seat outside on the patio. We were the only customers on the front patio so it was very nice.
The service was okay but not great. The water was not topped up at all during the course of our meal and when we ordered a bottle of wine our server did not even open the bottle and pour the first glass (I think that maybe a first, sometimes the server will not top up the wine but they always at least open the bottle and pour the first glass). The food that we had was very good. We started off with an appetizer of calamari and it was a generous portion of crispy tender calamari served with tzatziki sauce, onions and tomato. For entrees my husband had the barbecue spareribs that he said were very good. The ribs were nice and moist, it was very flavourful and it was a good sized portion. I had a pork chop with a cherry sauce. The pork chop was well cooked and the cherry sauce was well paired with the pork chop. It came with mashed potatoes, and grilled, cauliflower, carrots, broccoli and asparagus. The vegetables were really good as they were grilled and very tasty, not like overcooked steamed or boiled vegetables that you often get.
I don’t whether it was just the evening that we were there or if it is a regular Friday feature but they had a 3 course menu that included soup or salad, entrée (one entrée was rib steak with 2 prawns) and dessert for $22.00. Our entrees were $19.95 each and for the quality it was good value.
After we had finished our meal and were enjoying our wine the owner or manager came out to chat with us for awhile. It’s nice to know your business is appreciated.
It was a most enjoyable evening on the patio. If we returned I would try to get patio seating again.
Food is really good & tasty.
After Tasty Bistro this is next best thing as far as Food taste.
This place is for Breakfast & lunch.
Just be prepared for wait line on weekends during noon.
Special Bature & Amritsir Kulche. I always ask for well done if you like crispy.
Parking is problem as Payal center is always busy. They do not charge for tips, so you have to leave cash for waiters on table.
Visited with a (mainly European) family group today for late lunch/early dinner. We enjoyed everything we ordered. Some dishes surprised us with their spiciness. We received attentive service. This location is beautiful! Try it if you are on Scott Road and looking for a good Chinese meal.
Incredible food and atmosphere. The owners and staff are extremely kind and generous. Lots of vegan options too! Best veggie salad rolls I have ever had, could eat them every day. Veggie pho, buddha bowls, and rice dishes are all delicious as well. It's always a good experience. Definitely recommended, Dine here!!!
We were a group of four and wanted a normal lunch without hassles. The waitress's were in a surly mood as
one gal's was late and none of the others appeared to help each other. We were forgotten and then we noticed others that were seated after us had ordered and already got their food. We called a gal over and asked what the #$%@ was happening with our original waitress. She ended up being the hostess and forgot to tell the waitress's that we needed our orders taken. HAD to ask for coffee refills, had to ask for water, had to ask for desert menu. The actual meals were just ok and seemed to take a long time to deliver. NOT A BUSY DAY EITHER.
There are so many choices in South Surrey and this place is now OFF THE LIST.
With coffees and one dessert $75.00 . NOT WORTH IT FOLKS!
I am new to the Fraser valley and I found this place by accident. I am so happy I did. I came in to a fairly busy night. I found a table for my wife and I in the corner, we were treated very well by the waitress and she was attentive to us considering how busy she seemed to be. I ordered a stuffed Yorkie appetizer and my wife had these rattlesnake bites. I loved them both so much I looked like I must have not eaten in a week eating mine and picking of hers back and forth..so damn good.i ordered a spicy chicken club and she ordered this inside out dynamite roll salad. I devoured mine and she wasnt touching hers..it was too pretty to eat she tells me. I dove in and tried it..tasted better than any dynamite roll I've had..these guys are legit. Just for shits and giggles we asked for a dessert menu..we were so full and I just wanted to see what else they could do... homemade cheesecake to die for..my waitress tells us the chef makes a new one every other week..this one was a captain morgans snores ...so full and we both finished that plate too..best I've ever had. I am so happy to find this place, and we will be back..and we will both get fat. But for food like this it's understandable. I'm gonna have to meet this Jack guy soon and shake his hand, or punch him for making such great food that will go straight to our love handles.
Came here with the wife for the lunch buffet. We ended up being the only customers for the hour that we were there. The food was decent but the choices are quite limited. I would give the food a 2.5 but will round up to a 3 for the ratings system. The butter chicken was good though and fresh naan was replenished by the server. The restaurant is clean and since we were the only ones there, we could eat in peace without being rushed. I have been to other Indian places where I got more value for roughly the same price.
Read some reviews. So to clarify one below. This is not a sports bar at all. They do not serve beer, they are not licensed, so by all accounts you are mistaken. I have lived in Mexico decided to try this place. My husband and I pull up -lock our car door!* and without a word of a lie the guy on the front of the web page just happens to be standing in outside...we go inside are greeted right away, sat at a table and are served a little plate of chips with salsa., Mexican soap operas played on the tv. I ordered a bunch of stuff. Carnitas, chicken and pastor tacos, tamales (beef) and torilla soup. Although its hard to match the flavor with the foods you can get out here, the soup didn't taste right and was filled with chips i'd never seen that before. The tacos, Carnitas quite tasty, the chicken was alright, the pastor was a regret. Tamales were decent but quite salty. But overall, if your missing that Mexican kinda experiance, "might" be worth a treck to Whalley. Have some chips and salsa, Mexican soda amd some carnitas.
I went looking for a place for a good cup of coffee and a fresh baked pastry, i found Michaels in south surrey..too bad I didn't look more before trying this place out. First i ordered a cup of medium coffee, came out to me room temperature, and without any cream or sugar on the side, had to ask for it after she dropped it and ran away. Not impressed, so when i went up and asked if i could just have a croissant with a piece of cheese in it or on the side i was told " we dont do that" im like really? you serve sandwiches here and i cant get a plain croissant that you use for said sandwiches?...after what seemed too long to come to the idea of plain from the server, i get one with ham and cheese inside...again, i said plain with cheese..not ham and cheese..good thing
it wasn't against my religion or im allergic to pork. So they pulled out the ham and gave it back to me.
I find this quite unacceptable in this day and age where most people are very conscious of what they eat, but whatever, ill never go back...but the real kicker is they charged me 9 dollars for a the croissant and cheese..9 flipping dollars, because they can only charge for the sandwiches on the menu...I paid and left, my 9 dollar croissant has tainted my appetite for ever dining at this place again.
I go to Rustys pub about 3 to 4 times a month, every single time im there i am very happy with my experience. I love the food that they make, not the usual pub grub ( which i like) it is above and beyond some of the best food ive eaten in any restaurant in the fraser valley. I enjoy the different kinds of food they have on the menu, from a big burger to usual appies to things ive never seen before.
Rattlesnake bites ( jalepeno chicken bites..so tasty) and an Inside out dynamite roll salad. Again i was stuffed and still wanting more. I have brought all my friends to this hidden gem in cloverdale and all have said the same thing, Amazing, and surprised a pub can put out this kind of food. Keep it up guys, you will always have a customer in me.
I love this Starbucks . I've been to hundreds but this one is top drawer! The staff is always so kind- welcoming. Almost warm and fuzzy!
They make my frapps just perfect and they're upfront about it. They always go the extra mile. I've only seen them be rude a couple of times when this weird stuck up chick was super rude and demanding. How much should they take right? Whenever I go tithe cash they smile and welcome me back. Like a little corner cafe just the best!!
The Dumbest owner operator. We got there at lunch hour and ordered food. He said that will be ready in 10 minutes. He brought in first dish after 45 minutes...then naan bread after another 10 minutes. I asked him very politely if he could bring all the food together bcz kabobs were already cold. He said he was the only one there. I thought its a lame excuse. My friend said but we are going to pay you the full price and this is not a good service. He never apologized for being late and for a very poor customer service. He appeared with very dirty hands and apron. I kinda thought that was gross. NEVER RECOMMENDED. FULL OF DISEASES....DIRTY....RUDE. At the end of the conversation, he simply asked us to leave because he didn't like us to question him about poor service and him wearing dirty clothes and hands. YUCK
I used to frequent Milestone's very often, but over the last couple years have seen that their prices have sky rocketed.....
I used to go to a Milestone's every year for my birthday (Last year was the last time for birthday since alot of us find their food pricy....Decided to go to Boston Pizza this year (Thats expensive too, but)
Anyways, before being seated; I went to use the Washroom....not much pressure out of the sink.....whatever water came out was probably just a bit warmer than the Atlantic ocean was the night the Titanic sank.....I let a manager know....Hopefully they fixed it
Anyways; I went back to my date.....I ordered....I ordered a double cheeseburger with extra fries....and my date had just a single with extra fries.....The truth is; that the burger was fantastic.....I did pay $6 extra for a double patty (used to be $4) and the burger alone used to be cheaper...basically used to pay $15 for a double....now a single is $15.75.....burger is delicious, but find it expensive.
The service was great though....we liked out waitress. When we got the bill though, we saw we got charged $10 for two extra fries....I was shocked....I know I asked for extra, but didn't expect to pay that much. I brought that concern up to the waitress who spoke with her manager and they took it off the bill...so that made us happy.
Truth is, it is a bit expensive for what it is, but the food is above average from our regular Red Robin and White Spot (Just don't order extra fries) and the ambiance is great. I am no longer a regular at Milestone's, but it is great to come for special occasions (such as my date for Valentine's) and even birthdays are good; but then my friends have to pay beyond their means so ditched it this year and probably will continue to.....but for those other special occasions.....you can't go wrong with Milestone's....Just not for casual dining anymore
I honestly keep forgetting this place is here. It's a very nice restaurant that I love to go to with my family ..., when I remember it's there. It's really rather tucked away beside an insurance office and veterinarian clinic. It has a very nice cosy ambience and the food is very well done for a small community Japanese restaurant. Presentation is very nice and I feel the quality is quite high. The staff are very welcoming and hard working. Now that I've written this review I'm going to make it more of a priority to come here more often since it really is a great little place within walking distance to my home.
As I waited for my Frappucino, the woman behind the counter said "hello" in a tone of voice that sounded like I wasn't wanted there. An elderly man walked past me, though the door and into the kitchen. He quickly emerged, and my Frap was served. I think it was tainted. This place is creepy.
Next day, thinking maybe I was just being overly sensitive, I was served by whom I presume was the manager. She was filling out some kind of form and seemed put out by having to serve me. Her "thank you" was uttered in frosty tones that made her sound like someone who shouldn't be working retail.
The place is out of control. Head Office will hear of this.
