I am reviewing the new location in Newton:
Once per week we eat at this restaurant and for good reason. The staff call us by our first names, the food is fantastic, fresh and healthy. The ambiance is wonderful with a giant aquarium and beautiful fish. I order the #1 but in a spicy broth...... Outstanding with tons of meat. Beef stew is good as well.... Very filling. My wife enjoys #30. And my son a child sized #11. I am so very pleased to have quality pho in my neighbourhood. The three of us eat for $25. We always leave a $5-6 tip as the staff are wonderful, friendly and efficient. Thank you Pho Tau Bay. You should be proud of your new location!!! Don't change a thing

Hanaya Japanese Restaurant2828 152nd Street, #106, Surrey
Bad Service... Going downhill.
By Charlotte Douglas of S.Surrey (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 7:42pm [Dine in]

We used to frequent this restaurant regularly at least once a week, as a family of four. The service was always great, and the food was good. After a new sushi restaurant opened up in the neighbourhood (Maguro Guy) we took a brief hiatus from Hananya, and recently went back. Wow, has it ever gone downhill!! The service was terrible. I had to go up to the counter 3 times to get stuff since our waitress was non-existent. The food quality has gone down. They offer an All-you-can eat now, but I was afraid to order off that menu since it came with so many rules and regulations!! The worst part about our return there was that I asked for hot sauce and the waitress told me there was an extra charge...for hot sauce, are you kidding me??? This place has officially lost our business, and they are slowly starting to lose a lot of other customers with their poor customer service and greedy "extra charges". Save yourself the trip, and instead go to Maguro Guy. Way better food quality, presentation, and no extra charges for hit sauce!!!!

Fatburger1750 152nd Street, White Rock
Best Burger I have ever eaten in Lower Mainland

Went with my son to fatburger for early dinner and actually contemplated if I should have a burger for dinner. And I am so glad I did. I ordered the vege burger with all toppings and my son the beef burger. Both were incredibly good and moist and the toppings are even better... very fresh. The price is very good for the quantity and the size of the burgers!!!
If you want to eat a burger skip the fast food joints and head to Fat burger... you are sure to love it!!!

Weird, awful, terrible, disappointing food, service and restaurant!
By KimBot of Langley (14 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, April 23, 2013 - 1:15pm [Dine in]

We stopped off here for dinner one night last summer and wish we hadn't. The restaurant was about half full, but the waiter seemed hesitant to seat us. The room was so bloody dark we could hardly read our menus. The lights also surged and flickered every time an appliance got turned on in the kitchen and was also quite noisy.

Our service was down right awful. He seemed to make every effort to avoid us the entire enight. He was also rude or disinterested when we spoke to him. It took forever to get our drinks, which weren't any good. It took even longer for him to come back and take our appetizer order. He kept going to the other tables loudly chit chatting with the "locals" while we starved. We had to flag him down several times.

We asked what were some of the popular dinner items and were told "Its all good". After we ordered, we overheard him telling another table about the specials, which he never informed us of. When I asked if I could please change my order to the special, which sounded much better, he said no it was too late. When our meals arrived, we were incredibly disappointed. My partner had the lobster pot pie and it was BLAND! No flavour at all, and very runny. I ordered the bouillebaisse and it the seafood was very overcooked and the broth was bland. I took a couple bites and had to write it off, it didn't taste fresh and the texture of all the seafood was terrible. We sat at our table, ignored again, for a very long time not eating our meals as they got cold. We finally waived our server over and complained about our meals. We were basically told that it was too bad, and our dishes were whisked off.

We were again left to wait a long time. We actually got up and went to the front to get our bill so we could get out of there. They did not discount anything for us! We begrudgingly paid the bill and left and will never return again. We would NEVER EVER recommend this place to anyone.

Worst service I've ever had
By Treen of Langley (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, April 22, 2013 - 7:23pm [Dine in]

My husband and I chose to go Crescent Beach today for lunch on a beautifulSpring day. We liked the menu of this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We were greeted right away and told to seat ourselves. We sat on the patio at one of the many dirty tables at about 1:30 in the afternoon. To make a long story short, it took several minutes to get our order taken, my husband ordered a beer and the waitress never brought it. He had to go and find her after 15 mins to remind her. Our food was dropped off and the waitress never came back to see how everything was , nor was she around for us to flag down to get us cutlery, napkins, ketchup and a coffee refill. Nearing the end of our meal we finally saw the other waiter walk by us and we were able to get napkins and a coffee refill. I couldnt drink the coffee though because I didn't have cream and getting the waiters attention had already proved very difficult. It took another several minutes to get her attention to get our bill. It was honestly a very painful dining experience and the first time in my life I have left zero for a tip. Not ONE time did our server come by to see how we were doing, we had to flag her down or go and find her.
We witnessed the same thing with all of the tables around us too.
The food was pretty good, but not worth it for the terrible service.

Best indian in Surrey & area!
By KimBot of Langley (14 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 22, 2013 - 4:34pm [Take-out]

I have tried many indian places near the house trying to find better take out, and this place still takes the cake. The food quality, quantity and value cannot be beat. Not only is is cheaper than any other restaurant - but you get way more food as well. Usually ordering a couple dishes with naan and rice will give the two of us hefty dinner portions for 3 days and will cost us around $30. I have tried most of their dishes at least once, and have never been disappointed. Lamb curry, saag paneer, butter chicken, garlic naan and mulai kofta are our favourites/stand by dishes.

I have never stayed to eat here, but the take out service is always very speedy. Food has always been hot and ready when they say it will be (usually 20 mins). I haven't had a lot of the sweets, but the barfi and gulab jaman I have had are delicious as well.

Can't be beat!

I don't venture to Surrey very often so when I had to find a place for a good, quick dinner, I went online. Reviews of this place were good so we stopped in. Within 20 minutes the place went from opening up to completely full. The service is friendly and quick but it's the food where they shine..top quality. Attention to details. The sushi was fresh and beautiful works of art. Sushi prices are average. The menu has a good selection of the usual dishes. I'll have to go back to try the cooked food. The place is small with only 6-7 tables for about 20 diners and a sushi bar for another 7 or so. Lots of free parking.

We wanted to find a different restaurant to try when we found this one.
One of our dishes was sweet and sour chicken balls. I looked for the
chicken in the ball. There was very very little chicken and rest was
dough. When we complained, they told us that we wanted chicken
that we should have ordered some other dish. They kindly gave
us a $2.00 credit for our next dining out with them.
I have never in my life been insulted in such manner.
Will never eat in this restaurant again.

Not very Chinese, more like an attempt from another ethnic group trying to cook that way. Food was overcooked and dry. Way too much salt or msg. Portions were small. Driver was rude and had only coins for change but would not accept coins in payment so we got shorted $5. This place was recommended to us, we will not eat this garbage again. For the first time in our chinese food history, we threw out the leftovers.

Taqueria Jalisco Restaurant13646 Grosvenor Rd, Surrey
I Wanted Other Reviews to be True!
By rossoliverservice of Port Coquitlam (5 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 1:37am [Dine in]

Oh how I wanted these other reviews to be true, so I took a party of 4 with me to the Taqueria Jalisco in Surrey based on the good reviews on this site and others. Unfortunately, all of us had a horrible dining experience. A couple of loud, inebriated gents were eating away at their nachos slugging back beer, which I guess are the regular patrons Mexican restaurants rely on to survive in the lower mainland? This place is definitely more of a sports bar type place than a restaurant, and actually there are many pubs and bars that serve better nachos and Mexican or Tex-Mex type stuff.

I wanted to report that the people were friendly or attentive but they didn't care that I only took 2 bites. There wasn't even a "do you want this to take home?" or anything. They seemed interested in getting people in and out of there. Moreover, the prices are outrageous. There is no chance we caught this place on an "off" day. Our table was dirty, the restaurant was tacky and cheaply decorated and nobody cared. Shame.

I've been going to this pub for over 20 years and used to love going there. The menu was large, food was good and watching live bands on the weekends was fun. Fast forward to today. Tiny menu, lousy food and no band. And no reason to go there anymore.

Every tried this restaurant, the poorest service
By SharonG of White Rock , B.C. (1 Review)

1st time was a group of 6 of us - we had to ask for the dessert menu after finishing our meal and waiting quite a while for waitress to come back. Even then had to find the waitress to order dessert - after 20 minutes - as she did not come back to see what we wanted. Went back just for a drink and snack - seats at the bar -told they were reserved - who reserves seats at the bar? Tried again last night despite each time being poor but was close and we were hungry - sat at the table for 15 minutes and no one came. Waitress walked past, looked at us and we thought was going to get menus - instead she went to chat with the other waitresses. Saw another man go over to advise no one had served him. We left. On the way out complained to management - just young kids - did not care at all!

Not your typical sushi joint
By CrescentPeach of South Surrey (3 Reviews)

Been here a few times. It's not your typical $8.95 for a bento box kind of place. Their is $18.95 I believe but more than enough food to feed two people. Vast assortment of different delicacies that you don't normally see. Everything comes artfully arranged in various vessels. Our Yaki Soba came on ask sizzling skillet and tempura in a beautiful basket like dish. Service is very good, attentive when you need and leave you alone to eat (which I prefer)

Good Pho Fix but Not the Best in Surrey
By cherrybomb143 of Surrey, bc (218 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, March 20, 2013 - 7:15pm [Dine in]

As an avid Pho-goer, I'm glad there's another pho joint in Surrey. I've visited All About Pho several times and have also ordered food to go a couple of times. The food is good, with the vermicelli and rice dishes being better than the pho or bahn mi dishes in terms of flavor. Maybe I've been going to my other Pho staples for too long and am used to their style of pho, but I just found the pho here to be a bit more bland (and with little meat) vs. some other restaurants in Surrey.

The ambiance is a bit roomier and a lot nicer than most of the older pho places in Surrey. The heart warming welcome message on the walls and ample parking are wins in my book. However, service isn't great - they seem disorganized and often, I had to wait to be seated, wait to order, wait to get the bill, wait for change... I was waiting a lot!

Will likely be back if I were out with friends that cared about ambiance more than food quality.

You can't beat the to go specials at Maki Yaki. Two large rolls of Dynamite for $5, two rolls of tuna for $3, or two rolls of California for $4. I've ordered many times since the restaurant is close by my home. My only hope is that Maki Yaki will season their sushi rice! The lack of rice vinegar results in bland (albeit large) rolls.

Have spent thousands of $$$ there over the years there but will never go back ever!
By danndee of Surrey , B.C. (2 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, March 17, 2013 - 11:25am [Dine in]

Spencer needs to have a serious talk with the serving staff at Jolly Macs Pub. The place has hit the skids. I went in yesterday got a total bad attitude from the blonde guy behind the bar blowing up balloons. He was downright rude. We have spent so much money there over the years with Fundraisers upstairs to having a fun evening downstairs and even after work we drop in for a few. We are fantastic tippers too. We have also spent a fortune in the liquor store over the years as well and have purchased gift certificates from Jolly Macs too.This blonde bartender was so rude behind the bar I would have fired him on the spot. Several months ago we were in the Pub as well and a heavy set waitress mistook me for " some guy " and his friends skipping out on their bill. She too has has given us some attitude ever since. We do not skip out on our bills and believe me we have money. Were not those kinds of people!! She said I sure looked like the guy....Whatever.
We were to go to Jolly Macs for dinner and drinks on March March 21st, 2013 all 9 of us for a Birthday but we have decided to go to Guildford Staton instead. Friendlier serving staff.... Jolly Macs loss not ours.
We were looking as well at doing YET ANOTHER fundraiser at the beginning of May upstairs but Jolly Macs has been scratched from the list and when I got home yesterday I contacted several pubs in the area that expressed interest so thats what we will be doing.
I travel to many cities for my job and so many establishments cannot do enough for a " The Customer " Some of Jolly Macs staff seem to give you the impression we are doing " Them " a favor.
Well were done with Jolly Macs and will never step foot in the place again. There are too many other good places in Surrey to patronize that appreciate the business.

After reading some bad reviews which blew my mind, I felt the need to let everyone know how good this place is. I can ONLY imagine that these bad reviews were written by rival pho joints, or by the first two customers to eat there, before they got everything ironed out as a business.
The broth here is amazing, the noodles are perfect, the salad rolls and peanut sauce are the best I have had at 2/3rds the price of most places, and the service isn't bad considering how busy it can get.
As far as my girfriend and I are concerned, it blows every other place in Surrey and Langley out of the water.

Highly overrated
By freshfoodfreak of Surrey, BC, Canada (21 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, March 14, 2013 - 12:30pm [Dine in]

We have visited the Roadhouse on a number of occasions because of the great reviews it has received. I am afraid I cannot concur with those reviews. Although they have a large selection of items we have found the dishes to be mediocre at best. We have tried a number of things - burritos, sandwiches, salads and they were all pretty bland and tasteless. The portions tend to be very large but the food is definitely nothing special. Also, one of the worst cups of coffee I have ever had and the noise in the place makes it very unpleasant. If you are looking for a place to fill up on huge portions of fairly bland food, the Roadhouse is for you.
