We ordered Lamb Curry. The lamb was uneatable, so tough that to call it shoe leather would insult shoes. We spoke to the server who simply ignored us. We ate the rice and gravy leaving all of the so called lamb. The server presented us...with the bill without comment or apology. Possibly the worst meal I've ever been presented with and the worst service and customer relations too.More

We have only recently discovered Pomelo in Burlington in our quest to help small local restaurants survive the pandemic. This is the best Asian food I have had in many years!! We have only ordered takeout twice but now consider this to be our go...to restaurant for Asian food! The food is so fresh and tasty and on top of that, they allow special requests with each dish such as omitting something you may not like from a dish. We will definitely be back!!More

With restaurants having to close their doors due to the COVID-19 state of emergency, we have missed the pleasures of dining out. Once a week we have ordered in food from various locations as a treat and with the hopes that these establishments will survive....Yesterday we ordered a pickup with Pomelo Asian Cuisine. We were delighted with the beautiful quality and wonderful flavours. The Pad Thai, Pineapple Fried Rice, Thai Spring Rolls, Beef with Broccoli and Thai Golden Curry were absolutely wonderful! We are looking forward to our next meal with Pomelo. It is in our opinion, one of the best Asian food places in the Burlington and Oakville areas!More

This place is normally good, as we used to come frequently. Today we picked up our take out. One of the containers was wrong. We called to address it and all they would say was “the chef said it’s right” no, sorry, not come back...to fix it... nothing. We also ordered a beef roll, the description is noodles, bean sprouts, lettuce and beef. 1 tiny piece of meat and dirty lettuce. See pictures. Awful experience and unfortunately will never return.More

I've been here a few times for dinner with friends/family, but this was the first time getting one of their lunch specials. I could not have been more surprised. Not only was the food ready very quickly, but the quantity and quality were superb. The...wonton soup was flavourful and filling on its own, but paired with the fabulous stir fry and rice which was the actual lunch pushed it over the top. It will definitely be a lunch staple.More

We are back to Pomelo after a break and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends. It is fun to view the menu as it is so extensive and fun to contemplate. We chose Crispy ginger chicken, it was crispy, excellent ginger flavour. Pad Thai, again...very tasty, will order again, and Garlic Shrimp which just disappeared from the platter and lastly, vegetable rice. One platter of each was enough for 4 adults.More

We have been to Pomelo 5 or 6 times. It's been great everytime. Love the soups. Tom Yum is delicious, as it is Hot and Sour. We usually order Thai Chili Chicken, Green Curry and some spicy noodles . The favours are amazing, and the...portions are very generous. We always have lots of leftovers. It's great value without a compromise on food quality. Friendly prompt service. It's a good thing I don't live too close or I would be getting take out all the time! We'll be back soon for sure.More
