Disgusting
By NRahim2 of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, January 2, 2018 - 10:00pm [Dine in]

This has to be hands down the worst experience ever! I came in with my two kids as drive thru was slammed. No line up so we got to the till and the cashier seemed really confused about my order and kept getting agitated so I laughed and asked her if we could start again because she looked really confused and flustered. Her answers and attitude kept getting sharper and sharper and at the end of the order when I asked her to apologize for her attitude especially in front my kids she started arguing with me loudly and when I said please go get your manager the manager at first seemed nice and accommodating. He seemed to brush off his employees horrible attitude and awful behaviour he promptly proceeded to delete my (the order that took his employee three times to get right) and told me he would not serve me and told me to get out and that I could never come back again. I can not believe this happened in front of my two boys. forgot to mention the incompetent manager asked me never to come back lol and that he never wants to see me again in this area? Was that a threat? Fool

Montana's Cookhouse20090 91A Avenue, Langley
Poor customer service, rude staff.
By Tastebudz of Langley, BC (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, January 1, 2018 - 3:12pm [Dine in]

Went here on New Years Eve of 2017. To summarize our experience:
1) Montana's had run out of chicken, so my wife could not have the dish she would have liked.
2) We waited an hour for our main course to arrive, no apologies from staff
3) My 10 oz steak was more like a 5oz steak (yes I know 25% or so of the weight may be lost during cooking). When I asked to speak with the manager regarding this, I was waiting for 20mins before I asked again to speak with the manager (food getting cold during the wait). I was told that the manager was too busy to see me (perhaps there was no manager on site that evening?) I did get a new steak cooked though which I got to go. By the way the waitress also forgot to ask how I liked my steak cooked.
4) The waitress had to be reminded of the cookies which went with our kids meal
5) We had some food to take home. Instead of the waitress taking the food away to put into carry out containers, she left the empty containers on our table to pack up ourselves.
6) On paying, I still left a 2% tip (more than generous considering the experience), the waitress literally dropped the receipt onto the table, said nothing and walked off!

Himalaya Restaurant6587 Main St., Vancouver
Average buffet, poor ambiance, very nice sweets
By iknowwhatsgood of Vancouver (11 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 2:39pm [Dine in]

Went here for the buffet. They have a large buffet, judging by internet pictures and it did have 8 or 10 hot dishes. Thats why i picked it, and positive reviews on the internet. Anyways I just moved around here and decided to start trying these on occasion.

So first off, the ambience was that of a cafeteria. The place was not elegant by far. Has tube lighted menus and is clearly set up to live off the buffet and ample sweets section. I would not bring anyone i wanted to impress here, they didn't even clear the plates or really have any service after the initial drink. I stupidly tipped them by habit and I wish i didn't. But getting by that, there were lots of food items in the buffet. The chicken dishes of which there were two, did have plenty of chicken. however some of the other dishes such as pees and paneer were pretty runny and thin, not thick and creamy as one would expect. The naan was actually close to pita (thinner) but this may be just a varietal difference. It still tasted like naan. Butter chicken was the best thing out of the food and it wasn't what i would call stellar.

All in all, not very good ambience, price of $15 was a bit high for what you get. But its really a typical indian buffet. Not anywhere near the best food, the flavours kind of run together and nothing was memorable. However it was of generally average quality and nothing was really bad, so i would say an overall 2.5 out of 5. I would eat there again, but probably by myself, alone, if there was nothing else available, or i had just been out smoking mad weed..

The one thing that they did do right were the sweets. The gulab jamin and jalebi were very nice and really perfect. So for take out sweets this place is actually very good!

Blenz Coffee4600 Clarence Taylor Crescent, #111, Delta
Fake News! ( Blenz Ladner)
By CoffeeLVR of Ladner , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, November 29, 2017 - 2:10pm [Take-out]

Long time patron of Ladner Leisure Centre using Blenz coffee. ( 10 plus years customer)
After some ' internet ' investigation - it seems some of the posters ( contributors) here have a bit of a ' google' history of " 1 -starring" a few places - including a Ladner Elementary (?) school. wow.
Really, who goes to the bother of slamming a business all over the internet - It is hoped these frustrated and unhappy individuals reflect on their misused tongue(s) and fingers, Try investing into some meaningful and positive behaviour. I have had coffee from Blenz ( this , and other locations) I have always received friendly and personalized service. Perhaps the posters were upset that the service staff was not willing to take their narcissism and abuse.

The quality is excellent, the price is fair market value in the Lower Mainland. Unlike Starbucks, the coffee beans are ethically and organically sourced. There are many non-milk options and healthful menu choices. Really, who complains like this? A suggestion : these posters really must try to venture more outside of the ' Bermuda triangle' ( aka : Steveston- Ladner - Twass) ... spend time in the real city more often ( please! ) instead of wasting precious time as self-made keyboard warriors. Thanks.
Ps: tell the owner you are a BCAA member and you will get a discount :)

I had a very unpleasant experience at this Blenz location so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Just go accross the street to the McDonalds and get a better tasting and price coffee and avoid this place. I not only paid for an over priced coffee that tasted like chemicals but the owner herself told me that it was too bad I didn't like it and if I wanted something else I will be paying. Seriously??? She raised her voice and even went as far as to say that it wasn't starbucks. Terrible place!! And shame on the owner

Worst Customer Service

Worst customer service ever. Two filipina ladies who were working at the till this morning (thurs) at around 10am were kinda rude. They were laughing at a customer as she ordered and they're trying to copy what she said. Lucky, the customer still smiled and said, "thank you". They should treat their customers with the same respect. Will definitely not come back.

Great Little Restaurant
By me3vanc of Cloverdale (20 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 10:56am [Dine in]

Love this restaurant!! We eat here often and sometimes I get take-it as well. The value for the money is great and they even include a drink in the price. Always clean and tables cleared. The older guy is usually there during the week and he takes pride in his RESTAURANT but he isa bit short on patience for idiots. I have never seen flirting by the younger guys that are usually there on the weekends.

As for the guy with the Entertainment book, he said he produced it upon paying ...eveyone knows you have to show it WHEN YOU ORDER .... would have given the owner a chance to explain too many books were sold and he had stopped honouring it. His prices are very reasonable for value and I can't really blame him for having this issue.

Surprised Me

Submitted Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 10:39am [Dine in]

Went there just before noon on a Saturday. Son-in-law likes this place and wanted us to try it. Pleasantly surprised by menu .... breakfast special ... which is my favourite .... grilled chicken for the grandkid with allergies .... big burgers for the guys ... small burgers for kids ...and vegetarian burger. We had a lot of time to decide what to order as no one was coming to take our order - middle aged lady was cleaning the grill. I ordered my breakfast special and explained the egg yoke had to be"hard"- no moving around by itself. Over easy then she said and I agreed. Ordered delivered to the table and impressive for fast food. Two big pieces of crisp Bacon,good sausages, lots of hash browns .... but , although over easy, the yolk moved when i jiggled the plate. Decided I would eat the white only but when i cut into yolk accidentially it ran all over the plate right away ... and yolk was cold. So good food but staff should be at counter more promptly... and listen.

Avoid this Restaurant
By Alex Vanraalte of Delta BC (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, September 24, 2017 - 6:51pm [Dine in]

This restaurant has a number of flaws. Most importantly, the cleanliness of the restaurant is suspect (flys around the table, sauce on the walls, dog eared menus). Secondly, we have discovered many errors on the menu (e.g. a specific price for liquor is listed on the menu but restaurant charges a different price at end of the meal). In addition to all that, on two occasions we have needed a minor amendment to the bill which was followed by an obstinate and argumentative manager who insisted that the mistake was not the error of the restaurant and therefore wouldn't be adjusted. We're talking here about a $3.00 adjustment in both cases which was clearly the fault of staff. We will never again return to that restaurant.

We received a BCAA promotion for Milestones in the mail. After a little persuasion, we received an appetizer, two mains and a dessert for a low price. The chicken on a bed of pasta with mushrooms was more than my wife could manage. I had a steak with frites, very nice two. We enjoyed a tort for dessert.

Pelagos Greek Restaurant2728 O'Hara Lane, Surrey
poor experience at Pelagos at crescent Beach
By Ruthnum of White Rock , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

As a patron of this restaurant on monday September 4, 2017 My family and I a party of 10 had a horrible experience. We booked the restaurant and when we arrived were told to sit anywhere we wanted. It was a very hot night and the ventilation was very poor and stuffy and there was no Blinds on the window to block some of the effect of the sun. We ordered 2 bottles of wine and this came promptly and the server brought us a glass of water each. Ordered appetizers which also came within a reasonable time. Meanwhile the one taking reservations (A 13 year old kid kept adding a lot of Drop in customers which is their prerogative but when we started asking for service were told that Two servers did not turn up for work. Looking at how this establishment is run I am not surprised and our main course arrived. In the meantime we had requested for Water on FOUR occasions before it materialised and my wife felt sorry FOR THE SERVER AND SHE POURED THE WATER FOR THOSE WHO NEEDED IT.

It was such a horrible experience and likely even though we live locally, will not support this establishment. I should note that we ate at the GREEK in Vancouver and was a Great experience and comparing the food was also better. The Restaurant management was putting the patrons at risk of Health Issues because of the poor Environment and poor ventilation. I will also contact the City of Surrey and the Fraser Health board about my concerns. Is it legal to employ a 13 year old kid, which is the age the Owner told my wife when she phoned the Restaurant and voiced our concerns.

I was dining here with my friends the other day. Food was ok. However, their service was so bad. My friend wanted to ordered drip ice coffee. I had helped him to put the order. The server (older lady) had mistakenly tried to make two. I had explicitly told her its only one order. But said to me she already have "pressed" meaning she already have activated. Clearly, she hasn't poured hot water in the coffee drip cup yet. In the end, she ended up making two drip ice coffee and charged me for the second when clearly she made a mistake on the order. I was NOT happy about that. I will not set foot at this location for Thai Son ever again!

Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria1380 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Soggy
By Norman of Vancouver East (80 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 3, 2017 - 7:25am [Dine in]

I have eaten here twice, so I know it wasn't an off day. The pizza crust is soggy, and that's not
"Neapolitan" by any stretch. I have eaten pizza all over Italy, and I never had a soggy crust. I think it may be because their sauce is watery. The sauce isn't very tangy either, so maybe it should have a rethink. Anyway, if you are going to claim to be Neapolitan you should try to be authentic. Excellent and attentive service, though.

Takis Taverna1106 Davie Street, Vancouver
Takis disappointed on consistency
By Scott Wallace of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, August 28, 2017 - 6:18pm [Dine in]

This is an update of a third visit for consistency checking, and for a new meal of calamari.

Updating an earlier review here and on my private food blog (don't give the address to restaurants...but currently 5, 923 followers).

Initially, I had given them a great review. Really great. But I always suprise with another visit and check for consistency.

In the interest of hoping the feedback is helpful, and not unreasonable.

Very disappointed.

1. The grilled calamari which was highly recommended was such a small portion I really couldn't believe. Plus too salty. Maybe the latter is personal preference, but my husband found it very salty. Haven't tried the fried calamari but he won't go back.

2. THe lamb. I thought it was oddly oily (a huge pool of oil again, dripped outside of the bag and I still had a quarter inch of it sitting in the take-out container. And I weighed it...the bone and the fat were 65% of the meat. The only edible meat, which was delicious, was approximately 1/3 of the what I paid for! This was a seriously horrible piece of lamb.

Felt really bad and hope my initial review is not misleading complementary.

I don't know if I can try it again but we are definitely back to Stephos one more time to compare and I should definitely give Takis another chance.

One positive note, they were very generous in offering an ouzo while we waited for the takeout (which is always quite speedy...but they're not that busy so speed is not surprising).

Pelagos Greek Restaurant2728 O'Hara Lane, Surrey
Failed to deliver satisfaction
By katesville of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, August 27, 2017 - 10:44am [Dine in]

So I was very excited to try Pelagos - and upon arrival and being seated out on the waterfront patio, I thought..."this could be my new go to place". Great location, fantastic view and best of all my favorite food - Greek! Unfortunately the food did not live up to the expectations. I myself make a great souvlaki feast. So I know what goes into it and I would NEVER serve my guests the food that I received at Pelagos. I was extremely disappointed with the quality of the food. Everything, right down to the rice and the greek salad, was tasteless. I don't think that any seasoning whatsoever was used in the preparation. The lemon potatoes were floating in grease - good thing they only gave us one SMALL wedge (I mean seriously people - its a POTATO - i'm sure the price for your dish warrants at least 1/2 to a whole potato per person!). It boggles my brain that restaurants that "specialize" can take so little pride in what they are serving. I mean you are a GREEK restaurant - so make the best damn greek food that you can make!! If you are an ITALIAN restaurant - then I expect that I'm going to come there and experience great Italian food. Its not rocket science. If you are challenged by a too large menu and trying to keep up - then limit your menu selections, so you can focus on serving up those dishes in a manner that will keep people coming back. I'm tired of paying large amounts of money for dinners that fail to deliver any satisfaction whatsoever. Take some pride in what you are making - its your business - your choice - your representation.
