bad pizza in calgary

Ownership at Demetris has not changed. I spoke to the owner about a week ago when I picked up a pizza. This is the same man as it always has been. He did mention to me that since he has been getting older, he has had to close earlier on Friday and Saturday nights, as it is too much work. That is unfortunate, he has good pizza!

Indian Catering Rec's?

I would second Tiffin. I could be mistaken, but I do believe the last time I was there I saw a sign that said they now deliver those types of orders.

Piq Niq Calgary

I was wondering what people thoughts were on Piq Niq. I have always wanted to give it a try, just never got around to it. Its been around for a long time, it must be pretty good. Right?

Calgary recommendation -- fun / good dining on expense account?

Personally, not so impressed with Rouge the last time I was there. The food was good, the service not so much.

no more free water?

I'm getting off topic here, it seems as though foodseller has a business in an airport. Therefore repeat customers are not as likely as in a neighbourhood establishment. Like in many other "tourist" spots, customers are treated poorly, because the are often one time only customers. Foodseller, I think your situation (being in an airport) is different.

no more free water?

foodseller, if the customers that you refused a cup for water to, went somewhere they give out cups, would your business be in trouble? Sure some people might sneak some soda in that cup, but surely, that would be a very small percentage.

I agree, its silly to upset a customer over a cup of water. The business you give them is worth MANY, MANY, MANY glasses of water. The problem is, sometimes restaurants don't realize this until its too late.

What to do with extra freebie

You could ask for a substitute, the worst that would happen is they would say no. Also if you don't mind paying a few dollars more, you may be able to "upgrade" your pop to something that you will drink.

I'm a regular at this place for over ten years, should I be offended?

My thought are the same as yours haggisdragon. It should not matter if there is something wrong with the product or not. It should not even matter if you are a regular customer or not (since you are, it looks even worse, I agree). The product should be removed from the bill regardless of the circumstances. This is basic business sense. The only reason for not issuing a refund would be if most of the beer was consumed. In these times, restaurants ect., should jump at the chance to make a customer happy. I would also be very upset if this happened to me. You should talk to the owners, you are their eyes and ears, they would like to know what happened I'm sure. They will probably want to talk to their bartender, or put a policy in place, if they don't already have one.

Best Value Dining in Calgary

Okay, tried Jonas' a couple of nights ago. Good value I would say, lots of food. Rather boring and bland though, expected more. We had the schnitzel and the chicken papricash (sp?). Started with the goulash and the chicken soup. Basically nobody else in the restaurant. Really not that impressed, certainly would not rush back.

Best Value Dining in Calgary

What are peoples suggestions for value dining in Calgary. For the days you cannot afford fine dining and want to have a decent meal at a sit down restaurant. Places you leave from thinking the price was almost to good to be true. Any part of the city is okay, more centralized would be preferred. Please include any type of cuisine.

Looking forward to hearing everyones suggestions.

The elusive search for a great sandwich and soup restaurant (Calgary)

Decent soup at Keith's as well. Super friendly staff there too!!

Any news on Sandros?

I have been there a few times before the fire. I never found a problem with the service. I am not one to ever be described as looking wealthy, nor did we ever visit with a large group. Not outstanding service; Nothing I would complain about either.

The elusive search for a great sandwich and soup restaurant (Calgary)

Primal Grounds (3003 37 Street SW) is one of my favourite places for soup and sandwiches. Personally not such a fan of their coffee offerings though. West side of the city, maybe on your way home?

Character Eateries in Calgary

If a full service restaurant isn't required, try Tiffin Curry and Roti Hut (188 28 Street SE).
Not really a "Character" place, but decent indian food at a fair price. Never been disappointed there.
