I've walked by this pho place many times, and finally went in for lunch. I understand that pho is subjective to different diners - some like it with more anise, while others like a sweeter taste. But to me, there are hallmarks to a good bowl of pho, which are: for lack of a better word, al dente (non soggy) noodles, rich beefy broth, yummy meats in both quality and quantity. Unfortunately, Pho Newton delivered a bowl of soft noodles with a boring broth and mediocre meat.
I mentioned that I didn't want beansprouts with my salad roll (which came with a watered down peanut sauce by the way) and the server skipped the plate of veggies for my pho entirely. I wanted to ask for the lime, basil and peppers, but was unable to flag down the server.
A disappointing experience. Will not be back.
The first time I visited Neptune Surrey, it was dismal. But I've been back several times since my last review (on their opening day) and am happy to report that things went much more smoothly.
Much improved, arrived hot and was tasty. I particularly liked: eggplant and green beans (tasty black bean sauce didn't overpower), mushroom and black truffle tarts (heavy and buttery, but good), Chui Chow dumplings (hard to find these days but these guys do it right). Didn't enjoy the dumpling in soup as much (too salty, lacking depth of flavor and used imitation crab meat).
Again, much improved and now on par with any fine dining Chinese restaurant. Tea was refilled multiple times, they were attentive and available.
Five of us had a very filling brunch for $45 before tax/tips. Pricing will depend on what you order, but I felt that we had a good mix of heavier items (bun, truffle tart) and lighter items (veggies and steamed dumplings) that made for a satisfying meal. Interesting side note: the auto tip feature for their credit card machine is set to only 10%.
Glad they got into the groove. Will be back if I'm craving dim sum close to home.
I really enjoyed everything about Chili House. The staff was super friendly, but best of all, the food was great. Everything I tasted was really good and was of great freshness and quality.
The atmosphere is nice and cozy - very comfortable. It's easy to see that the owner and staff really care about your experience there.
Check it out. You won't be disappointed!
Came with my friends on a beautiful sunny day & got to enjoy sitting out on the covered patio.
I ordered the Monterey sandwich with fries & it was amazing. They put a generous amount
of fresh sliced turkey on toasted pumpkin seed bread along with other ingredients.
The pricing was acceptable, service was good. I would definitely go back again & recommend it.
I ordered Pizza and wings, and I had to repeat the pizza I wanted 3 times. Got the wrong pizza, and we made sure not to order one with certain toppings. After biting into it and spitting it out I called them. I was accused of ordering this pizza, then offered a discount on some pasta. I've got the pizza and even said it doesn't have to be dealt with tonight. Honestly the wings were dry and not "hot". Waste of $40. As an employee in the service industry for 6+ years that this is not how you do business.
Went here with the family for some dimsum on the weekend. The prices are a little higher than other dimsum places in the Lower Mainland but for Surrey it was the norm. Average dimsum dish was $3.65. At least the dishes were big compare to other dimsum places in Surrey. Actually so far they have the better dimsum than local dimsum places (which are less than a handful) Had the usual dimsume fare like shrimp dumpling, pork dumpling, sticky rice, steamed shrimp rolls with sweet soy sauce, spring rolls etc. The food came out hot and fresh. The serivce was decent and attentive. The area on the other hand was less than desireable. I looked out the window and saw fire and ambulance helping a homeless person outside the building next door. Overall I would venture back when I crave a dimsum fix. I can not comment on the other dishes.
Went here after a workout with the better half. We ordered the the lunch specials. I ordered the ginger beef with rice and better half ordered the pad thai. The pad thai tasted too tangy for my liking but was still tasty. The ginger beef was very good. The presentation was decent and the quantity was the norm. The restaurant is small and the parking out front can be a challenge. I believe their is more parking in the back. One thing I have to note is to watch where you are walking as the tile floors can be very slippy. There is a carpet runner across the floor but if you steer off it , you more than likely fall. Be warned if you use the washroom as there is no carpet and the floor is very slippery. Pleasant experience and will try again in the near future.
Went here with the family the other day for a dinner. The restaurant was just over half full and the music was loud techno modern top 40. A bit too loud as it is hard to converse at times. Ordered the Tawainese deep fried pork chops, 3 sauce chicken, beef brisket with vegetables and the sitr fried lamb with garlic, onions and ginger. The food tasted good but the portion size could have been bigger and the cut of meat could have been better in the 3 sauce chicken. The pieces they used would be the part of chicken that I would usually discard. The beef brisket with vegetables only had 6 piesces of bite size beef. Tasted very good but need more meat. The sides dishes that comes with these meals was cut up cerlery in a dressing and corn nibbits with pieces of ham. The side dishes tasted ok but I would not specially order them if they did not come free witht the meal. All the dishes came with steam white rice. If I had not tried other type of Tawaines bubble tea restaurant I would come back, but there are other that warrant my business more.
We also had a Groupon, it's always good to use one your first time visiting somewhere.
We walked in to an empty restaurant on a Friday night around 6:30 and thought we may have made a mistake. We were pleasantly surprised, the restaurant was small but nice. We started with a grilled caesar salad, which we thought was odd but found it to be very good. We both had the New York Strip Loin with crusted potatoes, both were also very good. The New York cheesecake was beautiful. The entertainment was just one guy, his name is Jim Foster, he was good enough that my wife bought his C.D. We both ordered another drink just to sit and watch him some more. we both agreed it was a very nice evening and both recommend it. I gave a 4 star only because I rarely call anything incredible, which on this site is a 5 Star.
The butter chicken pizza here is awsome. Other items are good too. Aloo tiki needs some work.
The service is horrible. I've ordered takeout from here 3 times and all three time the order was not correct, i had to wait a long time, the staff does not communicate with each other and the customer. No customer service skills.
There's no customer service here, no accountability for screwing their customers over. NA-DA. I was given the wrong dish and was told the kitchen made a mistake, however I won't get a refund and or a replacement for it. I was then patronized by being offered a 10% discount on my next order. (Please note: they have 10% off on ALL their take out orders. So in reality I'm getting a slap on the face)
I've never been to a business with such blatant lack of ownership for their mistakes. In the past they've over cooked my food, reduced portion sizes, brought me the wrong order and the list can go on. Besides, by the looks of it, other customers have had similar experiences. They're consistently screwing up, way to go!!
My advise would be to try some restaurants down the street, it can only get better from here. And watch your receipts, this place seems hella shady to me.
Adios never coming here again!!!
I went their 2nd time to order more food. Except Cream Chicken, food was worse then airline food.
Goat curry was basically boiled goat meat toss in to tomato sauce. (I am not joking)
No spices etc. it was just goat meat + tomato sauce.
The restaurant needs to be shutdown, we end up cooking it again with new gravy at home.
Please do yourself a favor & never buy anything from them. We paid full restaurant price for these dishes. What a waste of my money, I felt cheated.
one of the Best take out options.....they have lunch n dinner buffet only for just $8.99 however I didn't tried it yet but it seems to be good at this price. But they don't have bar yet. that's why its best option for take out...their paneer butter mASALA , malai kofta , kadai chicken, cheese chilly,chilly chicken, Fish pakora are one of the best in town....
Ya its true u r not simply welcome here.....they stare at u as if they are saying that why we eating their food...No welcome ....no politeness ,no restaurant etiquette and manners. I have very few chances to get together with my family....that's why I went there to spend some good time together with my family while eating good food...but these guys ruined all my expectations...I heard a lot about this restaurant ..but I think The ownership has changed now....that's why so much mismanagement....It could have Better for me if I have read the reviews about this ...restaurant.....the server are strange....strange look ...strange gestures...if u ask for water or fresh naan......they give very cold reaction.......So I personally" Don't recommend this place....N I will never ever go there"......just a worst nightmare of my life....I have visited so many restaurents...in surrey which are awesome...like Mahek ,Mirch Masala...etc.. good food n best service....full value for money.....So MIne is Simply NO to Mehfil......
This place used to be great but has continually deteriorated over the last ten years. We live fairly close and used to go once a week. The design of the room is great and the patio is lovely but the furnishings are awful - uncomfortable chairs that are falling apart and dirty and the arm chairs in the corners are absolutely filthy. The carpet could also be cleaned or replaced. In addition, they seem to have trouble keeping all the washrooms in working order. The food is uninspiring to say the least. The Chicken Quesadilla used to be one of my favourites but I think they have started using bags of frozen diced chicken because it smells and tastes old. The last two times I went there I ordered the Quesadilla without chicken because it was so bad. My husband has had the salmon and it smelled and tasted very fishy. Virtually everything we have tried from the menu has been poorly executed and bland.
The service is unreliable as well. Some of the servers don't seem to care at all about providing decent service. There is one woman that is awesome but the rest just don't care.
We also used to take out of town guests there because it was a nice casual place with decent food. We would no longer take anyone there because it has been so poorly maintained and is so dirty. In fact, we don't go there any more for the same reason.
Only went a couple times because it was out of the way......and kind of pricy. Very nice décor inside so I guess they need money to cover the cost. Tried to find something on the menu that was snackable but not put me in the poorhouse. No luck there and what I did order was hum drum. Nay comin back.
Went here with the kids for a nice lunch. We had the AYCE buffet but it was barely anyone there That should have been a sign that I should have walked out. We had butter chicken and goat curry with rice and garlic naan. The butter chicken was lacking flavour and the goat curry was decent. The garlic naan was tasty. Tried the other dishes but they were less memorable. After we started eating at 130pm, we were the only people there. The service was ok, as the waitress offered us some fresh garlic naan. The variety was nothing to mention. Most of the meat was gone except for the goat curry. It just seem that they are going through the motions and really do not care. I used a coupon that was in the newspaper so that the usually $11.99 buffet was $8.99. Would I ever go back even if it was $8.99, probably not as there are so many other East Indian restaurants that are so much better.
As a middle aged woman, I will never go to this deli again, even though there are some cheap prices because the owner is a real pig. He honestly had me in tears with his nasty insults. So, I guess he only wants hard-nosed men to buy from him who can put up with his crude language & disgusting photos hanging on the wall (owner in ladies underwear etc). Go here at your own risk; does the health inspection branch every go here? I doubt it!
Went here with the family and inlaws in tow. Ordered the assorted tempura, 62 pieces party tray, toro and salmon sashimi, chicken and beef terayaki dinner for the 4 adults and 2 kids. The service and the decor was great. From the looks outside and the neighbourhood, you would not have known that this restaurant would be so good. Was impressed that once you entered, you come into a very clean and professional establishment. The food came out fresh and tasty. The assorted tempura was hot and fresh. The chicken and beef terayaki could have used some more sauce as it was lacking. The party tray and the sashimi was awesome. Very impressed with the freshness and flavour. The price was a bit high, but you are paying for quality. Overall review is that I would return when I am craving good sushi.
Went here with the family in tow and went out to try some Taiwanese food. It is located in a small strip mall near Central City, but so worth the trip. The decor is clean and modern. The food is excellent. We had the House special chow mein, Taiwanese noodles with deep fried fish in a black pepper sauce, beef brisket with bamboo shoots and cabbage in a clay oven pot with rice and deep fried curry pork chops with rice. All the food came out hot and fresh. The taste was excellent. Very impressed, as I did not expected such tasty dishes. The service was great, very attentive and patience. They were able to answer all my questions with ease. Overall I am very impressed with this establishment. I will come again soon to try the other dishes and the tasty drinks.
