I was surprised to read the unpleasant reviews above, i have been there several times for lunch and dinner, and have never been dissapointed. the prices are way better than any other dosa place in the lowe main land, and the taste is very authentic.
I have been there atleast 20 times in the past 3 years.

Expected a better experience than what I received
By Huge of Surrey (139 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 11, 2013 - 2:31pm [Dine in]

Better half was out of town and I always wanted to try Afghan food, so I venture to this restaurant bymyself. I had to look for the host to be seated as there was none to greet me when I entered. I ordered the lamb and beef kababs. Both dishes came with salad and naan. Both meats (beef and lamb) were prepared exactly the same way, spicy and hot. The meat was decent but the salad was nothing special. The salad reminds me of the bag salad you get at a grocery store. The naan was nothing special. The price for the lamb kabab was $15.95 while the beef kabab was $14,95. Fortunately I had the entertainment coupon as if I had to pay full price I would be unsatisfied as the whole experience for Afghan food was just plain ok. The service was slow, the waitress did not come by to refill my water while I was there. From this barely satisfactory experience, I would not rush back anytime soon.

Great Indian restaurant

Submitted Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 3:20pm [Dine in]

Took family there, total of five of us including my elderly parents.

We ordered the lamb seikh kabob, eggplant bharta, tandoori chicken and butter chicken.

The eggplant was minced and mixed, the best eggplan bharta I have ever had, was excellent. The tandoori chicken was not dry like it usually is, and it was very tasty. As was the lamb seikh kabob. And service was excellent, the restaurant was clean and tidy.

Overall - excellent tasty indian food, will be going back soon.

I am a regular customer at Jerusalem Grill for the past two years,and I have not had one bad experience yet,and I believe I never will.
My wife and I and both of our children can't imagine our weekend without visiting this restaurant and the sweetest owner Ash,the food is well priced,always fresh meats,salads,sauces,and the best thing is that the owner promises not to use any preservatives,and all of the food items are made from scratch with extra love and care as he says lol
I have reviewed the only two reviews on this website,and I highly disagree with that customer for the following reasons
1)the 10 pcs of fried chicken was for $12.99 as a special price for the first year,and the menue has been changed since then and offers different prices and more items.check menue at WWW.JERUSALEM-GRILL.CA
2)the platter for $14.99 with the three assorted skewers is no #14 on the menue and it includes 1 skewer of chicken,1beef,1 lamb,either rice or homemade fries,two fresh hand cut salads,hummus and garlic dips,1 pita bread,one can of soft drink..all for $15 dollars ,how does that work out to be $5/skewer!!!!!!
If you have not visited J.Grill you have been missing out on this unique restaurant.
Go J.Grill go

I've been here about six times in the last couple of months. It's now under NEW MANAGEMENT and the new owner is working extremely hard to make this a "happening" place.
Friendly staff and good pub style food. Cheap beer, too. It will probably take a bit of work and time to get the place turned around, but give it a try. LIVE entertainment on weekends. If you arrive before 6 p.m. try one of the Appys -- 3 mini burgers is a great deal!

Interesting Adventure
By Tasty34 of Surrey (12 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, October 26, 2013 - 11:19pm [Dine in]

This place describes itself as being inspired by South India, Sri Lanka and Malaysia. Never been to a restaurant with such a description before. This is in strange area to access. Inside the restaurant there is only a few tables. On a cold night opening the front door pulls all the heat out of the restaurant.

It has a modern colour scheme over beat up walls. Servers a friendly but a bit on the slow side. If you ask for spicy food here you will get it. I would say this is on the upper end for on the hotness scale. It really is a unique flavour experience. Pricing is really fair. The majority of dishes were under $10 for a main. The portions looks small but they are quite filling. If your looking for a food adventure give it a try.

Terrible Service, Good Food
By Tasty34 of Surrey (12 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, October 26, 2013 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

The short version is the food is well seasoned, and you will pay for it. They have a pretty good take out business which tells me that regular customers prefer to take out versus eat in.

The long version:

Had a cold and wanted to have something spicy to help burn it off. We made a special trip to come here and arrived an hour before they opened. Killed some time and came back when the open sign was on. Of course the front door was locked which took a few minutes to get someone to open the door.

Our server who took our order seemed very disinterested in us being the only customer at the time. We ordered an appetizer platter, a ginger pork stir fry and the house special fried rice. He didn't ask about the spiciness so I made a point of saying we wanted it spicy.

Washing my hands before dinner looks like the bathroom floor hasn't been washed in over a week. Made me nervous about the food.

Food came quite quickly and our server disappeared and two waitresses took over. The flavours of the food was quite nice. The appetizers were not very spicy so we were thinking that may be in the other two dishes. Nope. None of it was spicy at all. Perhaps the waiter misunderstood. When I said spicy maybe he heard not spicy as what would you expect in White Rock. On mentioning this to one of the girls she brought out different hot sauces that were quite nice. It would have been better if the dishes would have been cooked that way but it was done.

The restaurant was getting busy with pick up orders and the waitresses didn't seem to be able to prioritize or keep anything organized. We waited a while for them to pack our order and bring the bill. I paid with an Amex which seemed to cause some confusion on there end which they couldn't explain. I was told just a moment while we waited 10 minutes before I went up to the counter. They told me they didn't take Amex, which they could have told me 10 minutes ago. They had run my card and gotten it approved yet they didn't take it? Our original server came back carrying groceries from the store. Surprise surprise the guy who was disinterested in us and screwed up the heat of the order is the manager. He berated the girl in front of me for taking the card because she had be told many times not to. Nothing said to me in the way of apology.

So for screwing up the heat of the order, lack of organization and customer service the restaurant earned the very rare 0 tip. It shouldn't take 15 minutes after stopping eating a messed up meal to get the hell out. The flavours are decent but a bit on the high end price wise. To have to have the 3 dishes was $47.

I'd try another restaurant in the future as I wouldn't want to test a restaurant with so many problems. Too bad though I think the cook is excellent.

Sushi Tengoku10194 152nd Street, Surrey
Terribly Awful! After this review and you still eat here then I "applaud" you!!
By JaneV of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 25, 2013 - 10:07am [Dine in]

I don't even know why I should bother writing a review about this Sushi place as I tried to put it in the very very back of my head!! We came here about one month ago on our way home to Vancouver after a day trip in Tulalip. After google for a sushi place that open late Tengoku came up.

How we wish that we had NEVER stepped our foots into this place!!

Let me starting by the greeting...

Came in with the entire place was almost empty. It was 10pm so OK I get it!
BUT we stood there for almost 8 mins but no hostess/server insight.
After a several yellings in Japanese from a sushi chef at the front counter. A lady ran out and sat us down.

Ambiance..... Is this a sushi restaurant or an underground night club? It was dark and has that dreadful cold feeling...

Service.... If You have lots of patience then be my guest... After waving your arms in the air or walked out of our booth twice just to get the attention!

Now the FOOD! they served us FROZEN fish!! Have you ever try to eat Frozen sashimi??!!
We brought this to our server's attention and she said "I'm sorry but can you wait for 15 mins for them to thaw then try again"!! What! Is this the kind of response and service you provided to your customers?!!

After this review and you still eat here then I "APPLAUD" you!!

Chopsticks On Pho15325 56 Avenue (hwy 10), Unit 101, Surrey
It Is Well Worth Our Drive!
By JaneV of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

We live in Vancouver. I came from a French and Vietnamese background so I am pretty much grew up with Pho!
The thought of driving across the bridge for a bowl of Pho (paying the $6 toll for a return trip) is not really my forte!
However, after much convincing from our friends who kept saying you gotta try our favorite Pho place, you gotta try so we finally agreed!
Wow! "Wow" is an understatement!
Let me start by the greeting. The most warm and welcoming greetings we have ever had. And it is from the owner himself! We sat down and offered a very nice selections of tea. Mind you, you have to pay for tea.....
We both had the tasting platter which is like the taste of Vietnam. You get to sample all three different skewers of chicken, pork, prawns and they are marinated to perfection! My favorite is lemongrass pork balls! So yummy and juicy! The platter also came with salad rolls and crispy springrolls and lots of rice noodles and fresh vegetables. We also had the lemongrass Banh mi Vietnanese sandwich. Love the house sauce that came with it!
Moving on to the Pho! This is what we came for. Possibly one if not the best Pho broth we ever had in a longest longest time! Did I tell you I grew up with Pho? And I know my Pho!

However! It is not the food that made an impression. It is the service you get here. It is the type of feeling that you only get when you come to your friends house for dinner where they cook for you with love and passion. Ya that kind of feeling!

The restaurant is beautiful! Spotlessly clean and the music is so jazzy and relaxing!

OK! Should we repeat? WE LIVE IN VANCOUVER AND IT IS WELL WORTH THE DRIVE !!!

Generally we go downtown to dine, but after dining at Tap it has shown us that there are fabulous restaurants in the suburbs. Our server was very sweet and knowledgeable about the food. For appies, we shared the Caesar salad and prawns and scallops; both delicious and prepared with care. I have a wheat allergy so they suggested the wild mushroom risotto with prawns for my entree.....so good! The owner was very knowledgeable about wine and talked to us at length about his wine philosophy. We will be back!

An old standby for mid week specials.Food prep is above average and nice menu for the location. The Vault needs a face lift after all these years , starting to look tired.

Fairly expensive and smaller portions on nightly specials. Recommend to order just the single of specialty drinks, doubles taste the same .hmmmmm.Can have seedy looking characters at times.

Oishi Japanese Restaurant16033 108 Avenue, #407, Surrey
Highly Recommend This Restaurant!
By AnitaEB of Surrey , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, October 13, 2013 - 2:15pm [Dine in]

I'm obsessed with teriyaki! After my spouse and I moved to North Surrey, we found Oishi and decided to try it. The beef teriyaki is by-far the BEST teriyaki I've ever had, and I order it every time I go. Occasionally if I'm very hungry I'll order the yam tempura (around $8) as well. The teriyaki here is a decent price-point of around $12 and the lady that usually works there is nice. She's attentive with taking my order and I always look forward to seeing her.

My spouse usually orders the chicken teriyaki combo box (also around $12) which comes with miso soup, salad, chicken teriyaki, some assorted tempura, california roll and a side of rice. He's always happy and full after eating it. I highly recommend coming here! I usually drop by several times each month.

Pros: amazing food in taste and quality, nice employees, good value for combo meals, and of course, the best teriyaki you'll ever eat!

Cons: price could be a bit cheaper for teriyaki, and I'm a little disappointed I can't order half-sized yam tempura (a full-order is too much for me to eat alone!)

Wonderful little restaurant with great choices on their menu and good quality food. We've been frequenting here for over 5 years and am consistently very pleased with the staff and the food. The owner is very affable and frequently comes out of the kitchen to greet his guests. Overall, the new revamped menu offers excellent choices of Greek & Mediterranean food for a great price.

Maharaja8148 128 Street Surrey, #407, Surrey
Best Indian Food & Sweets (Motichur Ladoo) place. Best tasting food, with ok service.
By jsingh of Surrey (16 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 10:33pm [Dine in]

Quick tips: 1) This place is a little bit hard to find as it's in a generic, large mini-mall near the back, but the food is worth it 2) The food is set out as a buffet, but if you know of something that isn't out, they can probably provide it if you ask (i.e. garlic naan, aloo tiki, etc).

I moved to the lower mainland just a few months ago and am always on the look for new good eats. A good friend of mine has lived in the lower mainland for about 8 years, and absolutely loves good food. He told me, as soon as I moved back, he was going to take me to Maharaja. I was assured it was good as Maharaja is normally a catering company for high end East Indian weddings. Sure enough, after only a month of being back, I went to Maharaja and have gone back several times since.

This is one of the best East Indian restaurants in the lower mainland for your money and just for taste. Period. Unfortunately, they are only open for lunch (no dinners), but it is worth traveling during a lunch break or on the weekend to get there. To give you an idea, I've gone twice at 11:30am when they open. Both times there have been at least 4 car loads of people waiting to get in as soon as the doors open. I almost always take this as a good sign.

Inside the décor is very plain and simple - pretty much bare minimum or some tables and banquettes (no pictures, plants, etc.). Since my first visit, there have been continual renovations and updates to the décor, making it appear a lot more open and clean than it originally looked.

Since the restaurant is buffet style, you come into the restaurant, find any open table, place down your stuff and go right to the back to the restaurant to get your food. At the back you'll find your cutlery, plates and the wonderful, wonderful food. To start, there are some salads 1 or 2, several Indian dips (yogurt, curry, habenero, mint, chutneys, etc), along with several garnishes/toppers (i.e. green onion, pickled lemon, etc).

Then..... there's the hot food. There are between 10-12 hot dishes, with the majority of the dishes (~8) are vegetarian based, but that should not turn you off in the least. Maharaja is plentiful with spices and flavors, but not to the point that it ever becomes overbearing or inedible. All the standards that you would expect at an Indian restaurant are regulars on the buffet: butter chicken, palak paneer, lamb vindaloo, etc. along with many others that rotate from day to day. When you sit down a server will bring you naan, but you can ask for garlic naan, roti bread, or others if you'd like for no cost.

To add to this you can find a dessert table too for after you've overstuffed yourself (which I'm sure you will as it's A) a buffet for $11 B) it's damn tasty). You'll find items like laddu, jalebi, fruit and more. If you feel so inclined, there is a sweet shop attached to the restaurant where you can take some of the sweet treats home for later.

If you like good East Indian food, this is a place to go out of your way for. This is my go to place for a great East Indian lunch.

I have gone to Damiko on a number of occasions and have always had a good experience. Their food is fresh, well presented and very tasty. I can't speak for the sushi because I don't eat sushi but many of the other items on the menu are delicious including sunomono, prawn tempura, gyoza and the udon soup. The service is quick and the servers friendly. The ambiance could be taken up a notch but overall it is a great place to stop for a relaxing, casual bite if you like fresh and tasty food!

We started going to "Joes" soon after it opened because it is not too far from where we live. When we first started going the food was fresh and the service excellent. Recently though we have found that both the quality of the food and the service has declined significantly. The salads are terrible - some of the greens are so old they are brown and slimy. I recently tried the fish tacos which I frequently order in restaurants if it is available. The fish was old, dry and there was so little of it I actually opened up the tacos to see if they actually contained any fish only to find a couple of very small, mashed traces of fish. The quesadilla is just plain bad. I have also ordered the Kona Burger - the first time I had it, it was delicious but the second time it was so fatty and full of gristle that I couldn't eat it. The only decent thing left on the menu is the chili lime chicken. Very unfortunate because it used to be a nice place. We used to go at least every other week but we won't be going back. If you are in the area, go next door to Kami for better food and service!

I have gone to this place since they were in their old location, for years actually. Phoned in an order for 2 tonight went and picked it up took it home, it was wrong so my wife phones and they say we gave you two orders for 1. Not what we ordered so I went back there and got an argument from them. They only have one dinner for two on the menu, she gives us two single orders. Wasn't a big deal couple of egg rolls and fortune cookies, however the service was poor it was our fault. Really after many years of spending money with them never again. Can't recommend the food has gone downhill since the old location too. I wonder if they even allow you to write bad reviews on this site??
