We landed here after mundane grocery shopping and were pleasantly surprised. Quick to be seated, but we found the room to be open and noisy. Not overly so that you couldn't hear each other or anything, it's just not an intimate atmosphere by any means. Was fine for us and we ordered quickly. Nice menu choices - not so many that you are overwhelmed and enough to really have some great choices.

Husband had the butter chicken which he said was excellent; and he can be cool on the compliments. I had the West Coast Chop Salad and added a prawn skewer - wow, excellent flavour combinations in this salad creation. I loved it and would go back and have another one for sure.

Well done on the service department with a friendly upbeat server, prompt but not rushed food delivery and great on the flavour and presentation. We'll be back.

We stopped here for lunch while doing some shopping in the stores nearby. What a great experience and totally unexpected! Nice, clean & modern decor. Roomy tables and comfortable chairs. Service was friendly & efficient and the food was delicious, nicely presented and nice size portions.

I have been to several Original Joe's since they opened on Vancouver Island and have enjoyed each experience. I have yet to try something I haven't liked on the menu. The menu is large enough that I always want to try something new, without being overwhelming. Friendly staff!

We drove to Langford especially to eat here on this year's vacation trip because of the memorable food and service that we had last August. The service is outstanding. Too bad the cheesecake is no longer on the menu.

If you can get in (it's very popular) you won't be disappointed. All the food is good - you get the main item and a choice of 2 sides - and very plentiful. They will happily divide one meal so you can share it so that helps if you're a light eater.
