Dragon's Chop Suey House16055 Fraser Hwy, #103, Surrey
Subpar even for Westernized Chinese Food
By Huge of Surrey (139 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, January 3, 2013 - 11:15am [Delivery]

Ordered takeout from here as the better half and friends were craving the westernized version of Chinese food. They ordered lemon chicken, sweet and sour pork, fried rice, vegetables dish chop suey (whatever the hell that is), and another dish which I do not know what it was, and boy was it disappointing. The price was not cheap either as it came around $20 per person. The lemon chicken was terrible and had a bland taste. The sweet and sour was good, but could not make up for the bland and greesy food that came delivered. Read so many positive reviews and thought I would be pleasantly surprised. I should have trusted my gut instinct and gone to a real chinese restaurant. Even on their worse days they will beat this place on their best day. I even looked them up on the net and ready their history, that they serve authentic chinese food and how great their history was...blah, blah blah. Or should I say bland, bland, bland. I should have known better when there was not any chinese characters on their menu and they have the "special combos"....
Like their fortune cookie should have said...."you live and learn from your mistakes"

Delicious Thai Food Finally in Surrey!!!!
By anita99 of Vancouver (34 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 30, 2012 - 12:28am [Dine in]

Finally we find a great Thai restaurant in Surrey. The food was very authentic and the ingredients tasted very fresh. We decided to try out their lunch special and three of us ordered separate dishes. All I can say is wow! The flavors were very savory and we left wanting more. I ordered a spicy beef dish with green beans and this dish was absolutely wonderful and full of mouth watering flavor. This dish came with a soup and spring roll all of which were fresh. We can't wait to go back. This place and Talay Thai are my only two favorite Thai restaurants in the lower mainland areas.

White Spot13580 102nd Ave, Surrey
Consistenly Good Overall
By me3vanc of Cloverdale (20 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, December 28, 2012 - 1:00am [Dine in]

I take exception to the previous review about the guy shouting at the customer. My daughter and I eat here about once a month. She takes the skytrain in from the city and I drive over from Langley. We both love White Spot and this is sort of 1/2 between where we each live. I am older, in my 60's and not in any way street wise. My daughter is a bit better and can handle herself if the situation should arise. But we have never had any occasion at this restaurant where we have had anything out of the ordinary occur. Both my daughter and I are a bit intolerant of noisy kids and if we saw a table with noisy kids, we would ask to be seated elsewhere but I don't recall that ever being a problem here. Food is as always good, restaurant is clean, and service is great. Absolutely HATE the pictures on the wall, but whatever.

Dear Freinds ,

I am going write my first review of my lifetime about Gulberg Restuarant . Today 25 dec 2012 I went to have dinner in this restuarant along with my wife . I order chicken tikka it took more than 30 minutes to get our order and moreover it was not cooked properly and it was raw and without salt . it was terrible to eat . i have seen many customer arguing with the front sale person because he took order from the guest for the dishes which was not available and customers were not informed about that . they kept waiting . i work with the hotel in downtown Vancouver so i know the standards very well . This is the most UNHEIGENIC restuarant in the world . i have seen salad bar in the front was filthy with lot of dirt and it seems it is not washed since ages . I think this restuarant is running because there is very few Halal meat restuarant available in Surrey . I am so frustated with the restuarant that i am compelled to write this review . My advice please avoid this restuarant . Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Worst chocolates ever!

$18 for 9 chocolates that were absolutely horrible -- not a lot of flavour and they have a sort of sugar rim around the filling. the chocolate itself was okay but there are many other chocolate outlets that offer a much tastier product if you want something besides good packaging. Style isn't everything!

Chopsticks On Pho15325 56 Avenue (hwy 10), Unit 101, Surrey
Pho with a price tag
By FoodMan99 of Surrey , B.C. (66 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, December 22, 2012 - 11:56pm [Dine in]

Ever had pho? Probably not with this price tag attached. You may walk in, balk at the price and start thinking "there's a million and one pho places in the Lower Mainland, why on earth am I here?!" Don't be thrown off, though! You're getting what you pay for, and that's high-quality food, great ambiance (especially compared to the usual Pho restaurant) and very personable service. The owner takes time to not only check on you, but introduce himself and none of it comes off as phony. He seems like a great guy, and I hope his place succeeds (it wasn't very busy when I stopped by, but that WAS dead in the afternoon).

The pho is outstanding. I've tried it a few times elsewhere, but the broth here, as well as the noodles... put in a little hot sauce and you've got it perfect. I loved it. The Vietnamese sandwich was delicious too, and I'd recommend the Vietnamese-style espresso over ice, if you're sleepy. It's very good.

I love the decor, too! It's kind of pho-style, if you've been before, where there are lots of cafeteria tables with the hot sauce and sweet sauce, and you order at the counter and they bring it out to you. Very communal. The decorations are spartan but engaging, and it's a fun place to look around.

Alas, this all comes at a hefty price, for pho. I'm used to going in and paying $6-7 for a big bowl, but here it's upwards of $10. The sandwich is another 8, and for two with the coffee I was above $20! For pho!

But hey, maybe I'm just being a huge cheapskate. I'm just not used to pho costing this much, but then again, I'm not used to it being this good!

Cold food lousy service

I had ordered two medium pizzas and they took over an hour and when it did finally arrive they tasted old the crusts were hard like day old pizza and we had to warm them. They also didn't send the correct method of payment so we had to scramble to find cash. When I phoned them to complain I got told there was nothing that he could do since he only just started his shift and didn't take my order.

I am very unhappy with the level of service.

It could get much better.
By spacetraveller of Abby (7 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, December 20, 2012 - 6:42am [Dine in]

We used to really enjoy eating here, and the $4 deserts are still great, and the calamari is really good too.
The prime rib specials were awesome, but they don't seem to have those anymore.

The great thing is the horse racing ambiance, getting to either place bets or just watch the races and guess who was going to win over coffee and cheescake. Ahh, the Pimlico Cheesecake. If anything, come to the Derby for that and a coffee to go with it.

And the Santa Anita pizza is always a filling meal. My husband loves it and always keeps some slices for leftovers.

The last time we visited, the caesar salads tasted like they had bleach in them and even when they remade them, the bleach taste was still there. I suspect they didn't actually remake the salads, and just shuffled the lettuce around.

Might give the salad another chance someday.

For now, it's desert, calamari and pizza.

We ate here last night, and I have to say they have the best Thai foor in the lower mainland.
Rumour has it that the owner/chef is from The Thai House chain. We found this to be better than Thai house and others around.

We asked other patrons what they thought and all agreed it was excellent. Thank God I have a decent Thai restaurant to go to.

Have been ordering from here for years with little to no problems with the end product. Had one or two pizza's I wasn't pleased with when I got them home but they were definitely eatable with no bad taste or residual effect. We mentioned our disappointment on a return trip and were treated with utmost respect and had the next pizza cost reduced in price. Have found the counter staff and management most helpful, informative and courteous.

Submitted Sunday, December 16, 2012 - 12:45pm [Dine in]

Only teenagers could possible like this. And that is until someone tells them it's not good, terrible and it is expensive. Then they too won't like it. Really over priced, really normal to below average. Low end patrons meet high-end burger prices! Will not be returning. At least better than all the Chinese food that is popping up everywhere. Can't stomach seeing another sushi restaurant.

I have been in to this little place a few times, and every time is always a nice experience.
Not matter what meal you go for you always get a mountain of food for you buck. I can never seem to finish a plate (not without a lack of trying). Even when I take home food its delicious later.
Chicken Gyro YUMYUMYUM!
The staff are great! They don't try to push you into getting more but are still helpful, or helicopter around your table watching you eat but they still know to refill your drink. Even when it was busy our server found time to chit-chat with us and actually remembered us from before. Last time I went with a group of friends and near the end of our meal while we were just drinking our bottle of wine the owner even made time say see how things were going. He even bought our table some dessert. The baklava is sooo good. I even went in to buy two bottles of their house dressing which I'm going to serve with our Christmas dinner.
Most definitely a place to go, at least try it's really worth it.

Dangerous Breakfast

I brought my family here for breakfast and almost had a heart attack when the waitress almost dropped a bunch of plates on my infant son's head. Accidents can happen but when she came back to take our money with a hot coffee pot and didn't realize that it was tipping over his head I was less sympathetic. Oh well, I guess all the "excitement" made me forget that she also got our order wrong and that the food was lukewarm at best.

A Christmas Tradition
By RKlaus of Vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, December 12, 2012 - 6:38pm [Dine in]

Having Christmas brunch at Hazelmere has been a family tradition for years. They always have the same Santa and Mrs. Claus which is kind of cool because we get pictures with our kids every year. We just went last Sunday and once again they didn't disappoint. They offer pretty much everything type of breakfast and lunch item you can think of and the dessert selection is pretty good. The waitresses are nice and very attentive. I think our only complaint is that our kids always want to start with the chocolate fountain wich can be an all out battle. One thing to consider is their Christmas brunch is more expensive than their regular one but it seems worth it. We'll definitely be back

Birthday Dinner in Ruins
By sfustudent208 of New Westminster (19 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 5:44pm [Dine in]

Seriously.... dont waste your time, money or effort....
We went last night for dinner, it was my guys birthday and Rockwell's has always been a tradition.. the one in Coquitlam has always been amazing to us. We were in Cloverdale and decided to try this one... BIG mistake.
We arrived and I noticed a strong smell of Curry coming from the kitchen, no big deal but its a steak house, not a curry shack. My guy hates curry so this was a concern. We noticed it was very cold inside, and as such we moved to a table close to the fire... much better.
As is the tradition, we looked for Prime Rib, his usual order. Nothing.Not on the menu. So we decided on the New York Steak. Sounded so good. We even upped the order and asked for sauteed mushrooms.... OH BOY!!
Steak dinner comes. I ordered mine well, not over well and not charcoal. Didnt want to complain, it was his birthday. He ordered his medium well, not raw, not blue, but cooked. His was the most undercooked steak I ve ever seen. He decided to eat it anyway, but got to the middle and the steak ended there. It was just too raw.
The mushrooms I decided to include: burnt to a crisp. When we complained, the waitress told me they were roasted. Now come on, it said sauteed, not roasted and there was absolutely no moisture in the mushrooms, they were straw like. I might not be a gourmet cook at home, but I know a burnt mushroom when I see it...I commented on the mushrooms to the waitress. She argued with me.
Seriously, she saw they were inedible, we left them on the plates. So instead of comping the mushroom fee, she argued with me and left it on the bill...... I know working in the service industry is not easy, and the customer is not always reasonable or right but seriously? Can you not see the burnt mushrooms we left on the plate..I paid the bill, over $64 for nothing, and left. NEVER EVER AGAIN.
I m trying to find the Rockwell's head office to let them know this location is completely unworthy of the name. SERIOUSLY: IF YOU WANT ROCKWELL'S GO TO COQUITLAM AND STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

Came tonight. Total dissapointment, two chicken dishes were completely old, dried out chicken. The kind that you put in the fridge and hope to heat up a few days later and still be good but it isn't! Don't come here to risk getting sick.

We let the server know she walked away!

So we left $70 for our $68 bill and won't ever be back... Especially reciving that service!

Must be changed management, DOWNHILL food and service. Worse service!!
By foodcritic-mssae of vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, December 1, 2012 - 2:59am [Dine in]

Tried mahek almost a year ago, and have been several times. Tonight was the last!!! And will never go back. I give them the fact that they are pretty clean and tidy for an Indian cuisine... Since usually they lack in ambiance, but this place has an nice interior.

Now what goes on in the kitchen is a complete different story and is quite concerning. My boyfriend and I ordered quite abit, garlic naan, rice, chicken tandoori, shahi paneer, mahek wings and butter chicken. The butter chicken and garlic naan were good, but with butter chicken you can't go so wrong! The paneer was flavorless and the chicken tandoor and wings were unbeatable. They seem to be in recooked, old wings and tandoori that were put back in the fridge than reheated. We took one bite of each chicken dish and left it aside, as we tried to enjoy the others. When the server came by I did let her know that, that portion of food was not editable..... Seriously If you saw this meat and ate it , you would probably be sick in the hospital! (That's how bad it was) She said sorry and walked away. No offer to make a new one or make things right? Seriously she didn't even care. A few minutes later the table beside also complained about their food was reheated old food. Hot outside..... Cold inside. Gross...... This place use to be good..what happened its not even decent, not even the service.

My boyfriend has a good personality and even though he knew the food lacked he complimented on the good and pointed out the bad(comon no one else should experience this) As I agreed and was talking the server walked away! Are you serious? We always always tip atleast 20 percent. At this point no one cared we were unhappy... Do not waste your money here, you catch them on a good day and have one decent meal but risk getting sick from their low health standards.

Our bill wa 68$ we left $70. And really it wasn't even worth that. If I did that anywhere else I would feel horrible, seeing how they didn't care to make things right or even offer to make something new or fresh... Or yet not charge is for it but of course.... No care in the world.

Go here be prepared to be dissapointed. You been warned!
