Surrey in December...

I will be out in Surrey in early December and am looking for some good places to eat (preferable great sushi)

All recommendations are appreciated.

  1. I will go with Hanako in the Guildford area, Tokachi in the Whalley area or Tawara in the Newton/Panorama area.

    Surrey is pretty big, and surprisingly, have a few good sushi places.

    Can't find the link for Hanako. It is in a strip mall (same mall as Wendy's) off 152 St in Guildford.

    Tokachi Restaurant
    10767 King George Hwy, Surrey, BC V3T2X6, CA

    Tawara Japanese Restaurant
    15153 56th Ave, Surrey, BC V3S, CA

    1. When in Surrey, eat Indian food. Simple.

        We will be staying at the Marriott (I think there is only one?) and I would love to hear indian food rec's as well!

        Thanks to both of you!

          I do not remember any Marriot in Surrey.

          Surprisingly, I do not usually eat Indian when I am in Surrey. Anyways, Asian Spice (Chinese-Indian) and Mahek would be my pick.

          If you like Pho, consider Pho Tam and Pho Tau Bay.

          Asian Spice

              I think I have been to Mahek - a while ago was good IIRC - the interior felt more like a pub. I hear good things about Desi Junction (technically in Delta on 120 St).

              Someone really should do an Indian restaurant survey of Surrey. I suspect there's gold in them hills.

        2. kwailan4 is absolutely right. Mahek has great Indian food.

          Alternatively to sushi and Indian, there's also the Old Surrey restaurant in a rather sketchy area of Newton and, surprisingly, the restaurant in what is now called the Compass Point Inn near the Skytrain station on King George. Caution with the latter, though. They do tend to dump a bloody salt lick in the food sometimes and can have incredibly annoying pianomen playing (although on Tuesdays and Thursdays, a great blues guy).

          A nice brewpub with both decent food and beer is Big Ridge near Route 10 and 152nd.

          1. re: Leibowitz

            Does anyone know if the Mahek in Surrey is/was connected to the Indian resto near Broadway and MacDonald in Kits which I think is going by that name?

          2. I don't have the links, but do a search if you're interested in Indian.
            I've had fairly good experiences at both of these places.

            Bombay Palace Restaurant (on 72nd)
            Mogul Garden Restaurant (on 76th (I think!)

              Under the reply box, there is a "Link to a place" tab. You can search for the restaurants and add a link.

              Thanks! New places to check out next time I'm in Surrey! And then there's that new Malaysian place in Fraser Heights.
