Fresh Slice Pizza has a friendly staff and their pizza's are fair priced and its nice to have a thin crust. Good value, why not return? The sauces on the pizza's also gives your mouth an explosion of flavors whether you bite into the chicken, beef or veggie pizzas.
This place is a good burger joint with an American-style ambience. The free peanuts fill you up and the prices are affordable. We went several times within a few weeks and got quickly bored and never returned but the food was good. Its a family place where you can hang your hat. Try it out....our clothes smelled oily because of the ventilation of the restaurant that could have been better but it's still a good place to check out....

We sometimes go to Costco just to hit the food bar to eat chicken strips, montreal sandwiches, poutine, hot dogs at an affordable price. It is a busy place all the time but three can eat for less than $17.00. The hot dogs are beefy in size and who can find a better price for hotdogs/pop combinations? You don't go home hungry, unlike other places, so why not come back for more?

My family went to the Coquitlam Keg for the first time to celebrate our son's high marks in high school and to also enjoy Valentine's Day in 2014. An instant hit with us, we'll be back. The food is quite pricey but it is well plated, good portions and very hot. Nice atmosphere, it gets thumbs up and the waitress was attentive, friendly and on top of her game, great service.
My husband and I visited Vancouver recently from Edmonton, we decided to go to Kobe for dinner as we never had before. So much fun! The show was great and so was the food, seafood in Vancouver is so much better than Edmonton. The portions were huge, we both practically rolled out of the restaurant. I'm looking forward to going back to Kobe again the next time we visit Vancouver.
My family went to Afghan Chopan a few times. When the restaurant started out we all got good helpings of food and the last two times we were disappointed with the quantity of food. So, they lost our business and we used to come from Pitt Meadows, not exactly just down the road. A little hard to find as it is in an industrial setting. Food is delicious but nobody wants to go home stuffed but they do not want to go home hungry either after dropping $40+ for supper out.
I've been here so often I forget how I've come to discover this little gem. People may think it's a little pricey but if they understand the concept of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the direction this restaurant is following then it is a real value. You get a good nutritional and ethical bang for your dollar. It certainly fulfills my paleo lifestyle which I find very rare in the Lower Mainland.
The sourdough pancakes with the butter maple syrup is AWESOME! When in season this is topped with lots of local fresh berries and fruits and EK does not skimp on the syrup which is the BEST part. I'm a big eater and I love the portions of the pancakes. Same goes for their other breakfast dishes. It is a great value when you consider you're getting pasture raised eggs, pork and beef, local organic vegetables, homemade krauts with bioavailable probiotics.. Even when I've had almost TWO breakfasts at one time (oink oink) my stomach does not feel terrible like when I eat like a pig at other restaurants. This stuff sits well with me.
I love the atmosphere here. I feel like I'm eating at a farmer's home with it's large community tables, buying products from their pantry and watching diners come in from next door with noodles. Very community! Barb and the neighbouring store/restaurant share the dining area - tres cool!
I didn't want to reveal this but it would be selfish not to help out this place. I buy my FCLO here along with other paleo worthy goodies. She also sells coconut oil, vinegar, local raw honey, vanilla beans, clay powder and I've even snagged some great garage farm antique sale items when Barb redecorated.
Lots of gluten-free goodies, too.
The value is amazing. Larger portion than most Thai restaurants. It is a westernized version of Thai food and still, nevertheless, yummy!
It is disheartening to read negative reviews regarding the service as I have ALWAYS been treated better than most restaurants in the half dozen times I've eaten here. I think those reviewers are possibly high maintenance (a server's nightmare) or have a personal hate-on for the owner as I see almost the exact same review in other rating sites. And the person who does not like spicy food -- d-uh! Why are you eating here?
Food is very fresh, piping hot, and surprisingly fast. I love their coconut rice. I had spring rolls, sha cha chicken ,sha cha beef, mixed seasonal vegetables and deep fried banana with mango ice cream yesterday.
Atmosphere is warm with Thai statues and themes all around. They do great with a large group, too.
Sure, I can go to Banana Leaf or some other more authentic Thai restaurant but when I want to have a meal and leave like I didn't get ripped off and treated like a welcomed guest I will come here.
And the person complaining about paid parking, I don't know what you're talking about. There is free parking in the back downstairs.
I love Hirame .I always tell everybody how good it is and how I won't go anywhere else because Hirames quality has spoiled me.Well this evening I had ordered take-out for four of us. We bring it back home and 2 items are missing, the tempura and gyoza. We get a call from hirame recognizing their mistake and we got 2 miso soups to compensate, but had to go back to get it. As I was eating my salmon sashimi I felt bones. I took it out of mouth , it was 2 pin bones in my salmon. Very disappointed! I have never had that at any sushi restaurant before and I wouldn't expect that from Hirame. I called to let them know I was upset about it and they offered me 2 extra pieces of salmon sashimi next time I order. In short..it feels like their busyness is taking priority and they are not focusing on quality.I don't think I'll be going back for awhile and its too bad because its been great other than this time.
We had dinner here with some old friends. I heard some good reviews of the place, i agree with those good reviews. We ordered a bunch of stuff bento box, kiwi roll, chicken karage, oysters, unagi, tako, ebi. Everything was very good, service was good the kiwi roll was fabulous, i would try that one again. unagi was delicious. A friend we were with was trying some of the more adventurous items for the first time and he was pleasantly surprised how tasty it was. I'm glad i helped open the door to trying some more unique unusual foods for him. I would go back.
I was strolling down Robson on a chilly afternoon with my main squeeze and saw this Tea and Fondue place. I normally wouldn't go to a place like this as it looks very pretentious to me. But rather than judge a book by its cover i dove into Capstone. We ordered, yes you guessed it, tea and fondue. One cheese fondue and one dessert chocolate fondue. I had earl grey tea and my super hot wife had chocolate mint tea. She really enjoyed the tea as i did mine. You get some fresh fruit, grapes and apples and some veggies, baby carrots and cherry tomatoes along with some bread and pastry things with the cheese fondue. With the chocolate fondue there is strawberries, pineapple, grapes, apple and mini cookie things. Both were very good and refreshing. Something different. I found it all to be surprisingly filling aswell.
The decor of the establishment was bright and fresh. The staff was friendly and flirty.
My only complaint would be its a little pricey for some cut up fruit and bread with cheese and chocolate sauce. I hear what some other reviews say about "rip off". I guess if you are looking for value, this wouldn't be a first choice, but if your looking for a fun thing to do on a date or with some good friends, this would be a good place. I notice alot of people of the female variety really like this place. Guys take your date here!
Next time i'll try the ice cream, but i'll wait till summer.
I love donairs. This place in Maple ridge is not bad but i find it is inconsistent. I first started with donair affair in PoCo.Awsome donars! I was delighted to see we have one in Maple Ridge. I find the MR location is not as good at the PoCo location. I ordered three donairs, one hawaiian chicken, carribean lamb and carribean mixed chicken and beef. i guess the difference must be the portions of ingredients that go into the donair. There was too much onion and not enough tabouleh and not enough sauce. It's not like it was a bad tasting donair, it was still good. But i notice the PoCo location it's always good. Maybe they should get together and compare notes.
A good donair, nice friendly staff. I will try again soon.
A bunch of us went to the Keg to celebrate a friends B-Day. We called to make reservations but they said they dont take reservations after 5. This was the 152 nd surrey location. They told us if you get there around 5 you'll probbably get a seat. When we showed up at 5 , it was like a 4 hr wait for a table. Ok, it was busy because of this dine out vancouver thing that was going on. So they called the Scott rd location for us and we managed to get in there.
At the scott rd location we had to wait about an hour for table. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks and some appies to kill time. Calamari was goid, but a bit small portion.
When we got yo our table. We ordered food and the waitress seemed quite nice. As the evening progressed the service seemed to decline. The quality if service from our service provider was nil. Shouldnt we all be given water especially if we ask for it? The waitress seemed bothered about getting water for all of us. 6 adults at our table. When our steaks arrived 4 of 6 steaks were cold. They did take those off the bill in the end. My steak was ok. I ordered a sirloin oscar (a Keg favorite of mine) it was hot and tastey but lacking in bernaise sauce. My wife had pepper gravy steak, it was lacking in pepper.
The bar tender needs to learn hiw to make a good paralyzer.
Although my steak was good, speaking on behalf of my friends and the birthday girl It was nit a good night food-wise. Overall i hada great night because i was with friends, but the food portion was a total let-down. $40 for a steak? I expect top notch service at the Keg. I get better service at a fast food drive through.
I wonder if its just this Surrey location that is bad. Ive never experienced this at other locations, Vancouver, Burnaby.
I understand it was a busy night for them with the dine out Vancouver thing happening. In my book thats no excuse.
Im going to do alot more of making steak at home rather than go out to the Keg.
It was snowing so we wanted a quick meal and I felt like some noodles. Went to the Wok box as we were in the area. Ordered 2 boxes and the portion was very small. Also the taste was not that great. You could have gone to a Chinese restaurant and got a much better meal for half the price. We also won some spring rolls as part of our fortune cookie. So we tried the springs rolls as they tasted like they were from Costco. Nothing special here. Will not go back and way overpriced as to what you get. Service was good and clean place.
I go to this restaurant every week with my co-workers for lunch because it is closeby, and we go there once a week. So, we are regular customers.
Now, the food is all right, which is another reason that we keep going back. One of my co-workers loves a particular dish there. That is not the reason for this review.
The reason for the review is that the last time I was there several days ago, I paid using cash. I normally paid by credit card and would always tip 20% or more. The last time I was there, I paid cash because I had a lot of 20's in my wallet. I guess I left a smaller tip amount this time because whenever I punch in the numbers on the pad when paying by card, it was easier for me to enter the right tip amount. Automatic, you can call it.
Since we all paid separately, we took turns and I was the last one in my group to pay. The manager put the change on the little black tray. When I left the tip after getting change this time, I didn't think much of the amount and left whatever of the coins I thought was sufficient, and proceeded to head toward the exit. As I walked away from the counter, I heard the manager telling one of his staff in Cantonese, "That is so cheap" in obvious reference to the tip.
Now, if you want to make comments about customers, in this case a regular patron, you should do it out of earshot of that customer. Besides, I always tip 20% and I guess the coins and the change I didn't think much of when I left what I left as a tip. For the manager to be shooting his mouth off like that, is not acceptable.
I will not come back to this restaurant because of that kind of attitude. As a return customer that visits every week and leaves a standard tip every time except for this last time, it is insulting. I will take my business elsewhere and give those other restaurants my money. If my co-workers wish to go back there, they can do so without me.
Very great service, the girls there look after you very well. Food was great and came quickly. The live music is a nice added touch. The place has a great vibe! I would recommend the admiral for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All great meals! ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::):::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::-)) why is my review too short! the bar is great but this review sucks asking me to say more. I summed it up in what i said!!
Went to Pint Public house. I was told that this is good place to get some good food and drinks. The server was not too interested in working as she took a long time to give us the menus and take our orders. Had the chicken wings which were not bad. Almost like Earls. Had the prime rib burger and chicken burger. Chicken burger was not good. Too dry and not enough toppings. Prime Rib burger was good. Had one with yam fries and other with Ceasar salad. Not sure if i will rush back. Drinks were decent. The place was not too busy but has lots of TV so can watch anything that you like.
I frequent Vietnamese restaurants often. This is by far the worst treatment I've received from a waitress in years. When I arrived the restaurant was nearly empty...the waitress would not allow me to sit at a booth....she said it was for groups of patrons. She chose my table...an uncomfortable two seater in line with the kitchen. I don't eat beansprouts so I asked she omit them but I still wanted the lime, jalapeno's etc. She said they were out of them. When a group of 4 sat down...they all received their items. I asked for the customary complementary jasmine tea....she brought me earl grey. When I asked about the tea she argued that it was jasmine tea....? While eating my soup another single white lady walked in & received the exact same treatment. I finished my soup & proceeded to pay. When I questioned her about the fact the restaurant was nearly empty & I could have sat in a more comfortable area she said it was better b/c she'd just have to move me if bigger groups arrived? Also-when reviewing the bill....she charged me for that earl grey tea! I asked about the tea & she just said we charge for the tea. The entire experience was terrible & felt like reverse racism to me. I won't be back & I doubt the lady next to me will either!
Went here with a friend for a quick lunch. They had recently moved a few stores over in the strip mall and the layout is updated and clean. We both ordered the Honey Bacon Chicken, his sandwich had the onions and tomatoes left out while mine had what was intended.. It tasted delicious like it usually does. The lady will ask if you want the hot pepper as I believe a lot of customers do not eat it and it goes to waste. I used a coupon that I received in the mail where you buy a foot long and two fountain drinks you get the other foot long for free. The value is great as long as you have the coupon, but if not it can be a bit pricey. Overall I was satisfied with this franchise restaurant.
Went here with the family and another couple for dinner. We all ordered the dinner preselected meals and I ordered the deluxe dinner meal on the first page of the menu. I believe that this is for the customer who do not know what Indian food really taste so that they have the tried and true dishes to play it safe. Dishes like butter chicken, some dish with chick peas, tandoori chicken and the deluxe dinner had lamb curry plus both dishes included naans. The food came out nice and hot. The taste was very good and the portion was a bit smaller than if you ordered it by itself. Pretty good value if you want to dab into Indian cuisine. It might not look like a lot of food when they place it on the table, but the richness of the dishes will fill you up in no time. The ambiance was quite nice. Modern and clean. Parking can be a little tight, just make sure you park in the middle parking spot as there is not much room for mistakes. Will return in the future as we left with a positive experience.
