Montanas read reviews and fixed things up

I've been to this restaurant twice now and everything is great.
The people who run this place must have read the reviews and changed what they were doing.
We were seated immediately and had a waiter very quickly.
very friendly waiters and they did not rush us at all.
The food was amazing ( can't beat the ribs ).
we left very happy and full.

Great Breakfast - Jasna Cafe
In case you didn't already know, Phil and I love to find new places to eat. Well, Phil likes the finding, I like to experience the eating!.

Some people have a favorite restaurant that they return to over and over. We are more like, "we've been there, where shall we go next". Phil will do the research, read reviews and carefully choose the next place we will go.

Yesterday was no exception. We wanted to go out for breakfast, so Phil got on his computer and started researching a place we had noticed as we drove home one day. The place is called is Jasna Cafe, at 10320 Whalley Blvd, Surrey, BC.

Many reviews that Phil found said try the Eggs Benny. So we did! And Wow! They were good. We had three choices of hash browns (deep fried cubed, homemade shredded and homemade pan fried) or fruit with a full eggs benny for $6.95. We both had the shredded hash browns, and they were delicious, crispy on the outside and soft in the middle YUM YUM! My eggs were cooked perfectly, poached medium, served on a slice of ham and toasted english muffin and topped with perfect hollandaise sauce. One of the best hollandaise sauces I have tasted in a long time, nice citrus touch, not too much butter, great balance.

The decor of the place is interesting, looks like a japanese sushi place, complete with rooms on one side. The menu is standard diner fare with a bit of an asian influence. The coffee was good. The service was friendly and quick. May have to go back one day to try their lunch menu, there is a Ruben sandwich that caught my eye.

So, if you are lookng for a good breakfast at truly reasonable prices - try the Jasna Cafe. We ate breakfast for under $20.00.

One more bonus -- they have WiFi so we were able to plan out our day while we enjoyed breakie!

Chopsticks On Pho15325 56 Avenue (hwy 10), Unit 101, Surrey
Soft Opening
By wardyu of Surrey, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, August 21, 2012 - 2:52pm [Dine in]

Maria and I planned on visiting Chopsticks on Pho for their soft opening. Maria's cousin opened this restaurant and asked us if we wanted to check it out. I can never turn down food *sigh*. The decor is very modern. I thought the restaurant was too pretty for a Pho restaurant compared to others. The menu had a small selection of items, but it offered the most popular dishes. The pricing was a bit expensive compared to others. The service was good, but the wait was long. I ordered the "Works" and a "Grilled Lemon Grass Viet Sub". The pho was pretty tasty. The soup base was chicken, and there wasn't any MSG. It was very clear and clean. The "Grilled Lemon Grass Viet Sub" was a bit of a downer. The sub wasn’t stuffed to what I expected. I was able to flatten out the sub to the point where it looked like I was just eating bread. Other than that, it was a pretty good soft opening. This Pho restaurant is the better ones I had been to in Surrey. I definitely need to come back.

Chef's Kebab Restaurant16225 Fraser Hwy, #A, Surrey
Indian food at its Very Best
By sanjot of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, August 21, 2012 - 2:47am [Dine in]

Very rarely do you find a restaurant in Canada that takes you back to India. This restaurant is one such place. Definitely serves the best Indian food in Vancouver. Everything from Kebabs ( Afghani Tikka, Lahori Tikka or Kakori Kebab) to the amazing curries is just superb. I usually am a tough critic, when it comes to food but I have never been given a chance to complain at this restaurant. I think I have been there soo many times that there isn't a thing on the menu that I have had that I haven't liked. The friendly and professional service combined with amazing food makes Chefs Kebab my go to place when it comes to Indian Food. It isn't expensive and I would go there even if it was because the food is actually that good!!!! Highly Recommended. Go there and you won't regret it!!!

I have had the good fortune of having a lot of Japanese friends who have taken my out to some really great sushi places, so I know great sushi when I have it. The food was outstanding, the service was great and the ambiance was awesome. My Boyfriend and I decided to check out this place since it's right across from the movie theater in Guildford. We were so happy with the food. It costs a little more than some sushi places but well worth it and the portions are a good size. I will be telling all my friends. It made our day.

New York New York Greek Restaurant6361 152 Street, Suite 301, Surrey
A Little Nook with a Lovely Surprise
By DinerJan of Surrey , B.C. (2 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 18, 2012 - 9:39am [Dine in]

A friend and I decided to try New York New York last night. The outside is unpretentious and partially hidden behind the (now closed) Java Hut on the corner of 64th and 152nd, so it has been easy to drive by all these years and assume it was just another one of those Mom & Pop steakhouses. I was surprised when a co-worker informed me that it was actually a Greek restaurant and a place where she and her husband go when they need to tame their cravings for Mediterranean food.

New York New York is a small restaurant with a combination of booths and tables, very clean, very simple, somewhat dated but cozy. Our waitress was top notch and tended our table with finesse and efficiency. I ordered the vegetarian platter with an unusual spanakopita that was rolled into a cigar shape (nice touch) which was delivered hot and delicious and served with the usual side combination of rice, lemon roasted potato and greek salad. The portions were very generous, very tasty and I was completely stuffed by the end of my meal -- my friend had to take half of hers home with her. The meal was one of the best that I've had, but If I had to make one complaint I would say that I wish my Greek salad was chilled versus room temperature -- other than that I have nothing but praise for this place.

By the end of our meal my friend and I concluded that we would definitely recommend this place to others - the $20 price tag on entrees may seem steep to some, but I've paid almost as much for limp, greasy, tired Greek food at other places and this was worth the investment!

I returned to this restaurant for the second time and again the food was excellent. This time I took my family and they enjoyed the food just as much as I did. My kids just absolutely loved the chicken chow mein. We had ordered 5 items in total, not only did we enjoy the food at the restaurant, we had plenty of left to take home!

Akasaka Japanese Restaurant15110 101st Avenue, Surrey
A Good Option for Japanese in Surrey
By cherrybomb143 of Surrey, bc (218 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, August 15, 2012 - 4:30pm [Dine in]

I'm surprised time and time again that one need not go far in search of good food. I've passed by Akasaka multiple times and have been meaning to try it- finally went in when they sent me a coupon and invitation to put my name in for a free sushi draw. $500 in free sushi? I'm in!

The menu at Akasaka offers a wide range of options - a mix in style between Japanese bistro and traditional fare. I appreciate the innovative take on some of their specialty rolls and appetizers. We tried the salmon tataki salad,French Kiss Roll and Jazz Roll. All were well prepared, fresh and tasty. Particularly, the French Kiss roll was one of the best fried rolls that I ever had. It was fried perfectly, with the right amount of crispiness while still giving the rice a nice chewy texture. The filling was not affected by the frying and still fresh.

As for service - we used one of the coupons but left the flyer and the remaining second coupon on the counter after paying. The server ran after us outside into the rain to give us the flyer back "for next time".

Will be back.

Pelagos Greek Restaurant2728 O'Hara Lane, Surrey
Poor quality food
By misscricket of Surrey, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - 10:42pm [Dine in]

Went there for dinner. Location is great, right on the beach. Service was slow, it took as long to get our drinks and bill, as to get our food. But worse of all, the quality of food was poor. The restaurant substituted peas in place of a full serving of greek salad, broiled their "roasted" lamb, no pita bread, no lemon, and limited wine selection. So many essential elements of greek food missing. Definitely not worth the money. I won't be going again.

Tawara Sushi15153 Highway 10, #103, Surrey
The Master at Tawara is Gone
By rpm33 of White Rock , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - 7:46pm [Dine in]

I had some great sushi at Tawara in the last 6 months. The Master, Pyo was engaging at the sushi bar and a real artist. I went there today and found he had left at the end of July.

This is now just an ordinary sushi restaurant. The rice was poorly constructed and bland. Scallop nigiri was nearly tasteless where before it had delicious grassy notes. It was not fresh. The ikura nigiri tasted off. Tuna nigiri was old and bland, mealy. I think you get the idea. Not a place I would ever go to again. The staff was eager but communication was difficult. I planned a birthday treat there next week but phoned back to cancel because I felt a bit sick in the car on the way home. Good bye Pyo.

Me, my friends and workers and wife are all sushi monsters. We only enter and frequent the very best in sushi from Japan. I LOVE Tokyo Sushi. I go there once a week - sometimes even twice. I go there by myself. I love spending some time alone and relax while waiting for my sushi. Or I take my wife and we order top garde salmon skin, salmon, tuna and shrimps. The service is GREAT and fast. The fish is always fresh and the sushi is delicious. The prices are ok, not cheap but hey the value of freshness is there. The staff is very kind and they often give me a orange for free dessert. It is Japanese asian hospitality. It's the best sushi I ever tried in Vancouver and beyond. Read my other sushi reviews.

True Japanese sushi straight from japan

It's nice to come to Maguro for a non-Friday lunch, grab a seat at the bar and tuck into a spicy salmon roll included in the sushi tray special. They are the height of sushi kingdom and receive fresh fish every day. You can hear the authenticity when every time you ehar the chef and the waiters talk in their native tongue. You can read the copy of the Sun they have there in serene resto and have a delicious and relaxing time. Everyone at work would be so jealous if they knew what an amazing lunch hour you'd had, so keep this place a secret.
I am a sushi monster and so is my wife but we can't get enough of Maguro

Sushi Monsters
By bill 11 of Van subs (3 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 14, 2012 - 4:23pm [Dine in]

We are absolute sushi monsters and eat sushi every week. Safe to say we know sushi inside out and have developed a keen sense for sushi. This place has the best sushi possible. For example, the salmon is so fresh you can taste the sea almost immediately. I have to say that when you reach the top of the sushi level possible you are perfect and there are no more than 10 sushi restaurants at that level in Surrey. Kyoto (a name of a city where staff come from probably) is one of them. Ask for the sushi tray and you will receive free soup, salad and orange. Service is so so but they know us so we receive special service.

We visited this place on Friday night and came away impressed. We have been long standing customers of the North Surrey location and it was the first time we came here. We had also read the reviews and all I can say is that don't believe everything you read. We were seated promptly and our server was brilliant We ordered the chicken pakoras and seekh kebab for appetizer and for mains some butter chicken palak Paneer and some rice and nan breads
The food was delicious and flavorful. The appetizers were sizzling and fresh and the mains were to die for! Definitely worth the visit and loved the decor. I've been to all the new restaurants on Scott RD and by far the Panorama Mahek has them beat for taste service and ambience
Only one problem now do we go to North Surrey Location or Panorama Hmmmm!!!

Elisabeth's Chalet17785 No. 10 Highway, Surrey
Unexpectedly great!
By Aficionado of Ladner (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, August 10, 2012 - 9:05am [Dine in]

We were a bit leery about trying Elisabeth's as we had heard mixed reviews following an ownership change in the past while. However, we were pleasantly surprised with what a nice place it is for a delicious relaxing meal. The staff were gracious and welcoming hosts. Our waiter was pleasant and attentive. The room is beautiful and reserved, with soft music playing in the background. The food was just great - the prime rib special was as expected, nothing out of the ordinary, but tasty and filling. The highlight is schnitzel done in several different ways. Our waiter suggested one with crab, and it was excellent. Even the seniors portion was large, as the meals came with about four different vegetables. Not cheap, but pretty good value for what you get. If you want something different and think a schnitzel might hit the spot, try Elisabeth's, you won't be disappointed!

Ninja Sushi Japanese Restaurant19475 Fraser Highway, Surrey
Very disappointed
By CourtChan of Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, August 9, 2012 - 1:14am [Dine in]

Wanting to try a new Japanese restaurant, my boyfriend and I read reviews of this restaurant with the hopes of consuming delicious sushi. Both of us have had our fair share of dining at many japanese restaurants, and we are able to tell the difference between great sushi and mediocre sushi. Walking into the restaurant with only a few tables at 7:30pm, it took a few minutes for the waitress for deliver us menus and after taking our drink order, she did not come back for 10 minutes. Instead she took our food order and then brought us our drinks. After ordering, the food arrived about 25 minutes later. We only ordered sushi rolls and was very disappointed when the plates arrived. The presentation was low to mediocre. We ordered the rainbow, special ninja, chopped scallop, bc roll and 2 tai nigiri sushi and were disappointed with the taste. The chopped scallop roll looked very pathetic, with actual scallops chopped. All other Japanese restaurants we have been to are known to give whole pieces of scallop. And the size of the roll looked inflated and puny. The rainbow was ok - with only Salmon, tuna and shrimp on the top. We frequently done at Tengoku on guildford and absolutely love eating there. However, today we decided to try something new and boy did we wish we had gone there instead. Their rainbow roll comes with an assortment of sashimi on top of th roll, and freshness is always guaranteed.

On top of the mediocre food, our waitress did not even bring us our bc roll. However, at this time we did not care because the food was disgusting. She didn't even write our order down. No wider she forgot our bc roll.

To conclude, my boyfriend and I are never going back and we will just stick to our usual spot in guildford because we are always guaranteed a delicious meal.

Amazing Pizza

After developing what I'd like to call a habit of eating bad food, i took to trying to sample pizza from as many places as I could. although this review is for the Port Coquitlam location, It's the same owners/menu as this place. I called and ordered two mediums and was informed that I could get larges for the same price, hell, why not? I ordered a Chicken Ranch and a Butter Chicken pizza. both were awesome. crust was crunchy and chewy at the same time. toppings were loaded on. lots and lots of chicken too. the lady on the phone asked me if I wanted my butter chicken pizza "indian style" and I guess that is when they add ginger and cilantro onto it, and let me tell you, I will be ordering this again next week. just awesome.

I love good bbq i travel all over the place for work and have had true southern bbq and sorry to say this is not it. Bland was the main theme with their food. We got was is called the Memphis Feast . this is a bit of all their meat . Pulled pork no flavoure and very dry.Ribs tender but no taste no smoke or spice. chicken very dry.
beef was the best thing but no spice or smoke taste.
when you go in to the resterant they have great pits but i don't think they know hoe to us them .
Lets talk about their sauce they give. this is not a tennessee sauce way to much molasses in the sauce.They should think about adding some vinger and mustard to it drop half the molasses and they may be close.
Do not waste your time if your looking for true southern food this is not it. If you like bland food give it a try .
