I have gone to Anastasia because it is close to my mothers house in Surrey. Typically I have ordered the prime rib which has been great. It seems that there is still effort put into that dish. Unfortunately it is only served on weekends. The last time I took my dear mother (and fiance) there I had phoned ahead on Thanksgiving. They told me there was prime rib. We arrived later on to find out there was no prime rib as it is only served on weekends. Fine, but why indicate otherwise on the phone. When we arrived there were maybe 3 tables of people in the entire place. The server gave us their specials run down. I ordered the roast lamb. She indicated they had sold out of that. I jokingly asked her when and to whom??? I ended up ordering the parmesan chicken which I am almost positive was pre-frozen and pre-packaged. I The restaurant is great if you order prime rib on a weekend. Other than that, there is just to much competition out there for this place to be a worthy contender. Food, atmosphere and vibe need a serious over-haul

We had tried this restaurant quite a few years ago and was not impressed with it. Recently, they placed an ad for their anniversary and it had a coupon "Buy one Entre and 2 Drinks and get the 2nd Entre of Equal or Lesser Value at 50% off". We ordered a coffee and a pop, and then later when we were ordering our food the server advised is that we had to order "alcoholic drinks" which was not stated in the ad (and also, not every drinks alcohol). We opted to forget using the coupon and proceeded to order dinner. The portion sizes are large but both of our dinners were just "ok". When we got our bill, the price of the coffee and the pop were more than what was stated on the menu. I brought this to the server's attention and she went and spoke with the owner. When the server came back she said that the prices had changed and the menus were wrong, but the owner had refused to adjust the price. We will not be going back to this restaurant and will definitely inform our friends of our experience.

The decoration is awfull. The cook is really not very good. The site is ugly. Restaurant to avoid. I'm having with the previous opinions. I think the cook does'nt know what cooking means.

This is our fav place for prime rib EVER!!! The chef is amazing and the servers are great. I never have to send it back to be cooked longer, he always gets it right the first time. Large portions, so plenty for leftovers

Food was delicious, prime rib was melt in your mouth, lean and cooked to perfection. Would absolutely recommend.
