Recommended - Nice, clean restaurant, excellent food, great ambiance, absolutely gorgeous.
Food - very delicious, always very fresh, big portions.
My favourite dish is chicken santorini and my husband's favorite dish is lamb souvlaki. Also, we highly recommend their kalamari.
Personally, I think that this is the best Greek restaurant - if not overall restaurant - in town.
In general, it is very hard for us to change our orders because of the incredible taste and quality of the fantastic dishes mentioned above. However, we have also tried the chicken souvlaki and roast lamb, which were also amazing. Honestly, there are no words to explain their taste because "great" or "delicious" is simply not enough.
Our children (who are all adults now) and all the friends we have brought with us to the restaurant all share the same opinion as we do.
I'm 100% sure that My Greek Taverna at Brunette Ave in Coquitlam is one of the best in town and, as a result, we recommend it for anyone who likes good, prepared food, and a clean and wonderful atmosphere.
Service - is always attentive, very friendly.
Ambiance and value - the prices seem very reasonable, especially considering the generous portions they provide. The place is beautiful decorated and makes you feel like you are in a restaurant in Thessalloniki or Athens. Best of all, it's much cheaper than a flight!
I always go in for take-out, I've never dined in. Each time the restaurant is quite busy, their is never any parking out front. I always park in the "No Parking" zones when i run in to get my order. I'm a Salmon roll addict, yum! The salmon is always fresh, seeing as how its always so busy; i assume they must get food shipments regularly. The dynamite roll isn't bad either. The restaurant is nothing fancy, the prices are great, but the wait staff not so much. Quick, and quiet on the phone, and not friendly when i come in to pick up my orders.
Came after a night of recreational badminton with 4 of my friends on a Friday night. It was around 10-10:30 ish and the restaurant was still full. We didn't wait for very long and was promptly seated at a booth. The server greeted us within 2 minutes and asked if we heard the specials and then asked if we were ready for our drink order. When our drinks came, we ordered our food, and the food got to our table in less than 10 minutes.
We ordered 1 lb of wings, a pasta, and the shared platter to try. For the 1 lb, we had the Canadian Maple Bourbon flavour and it was quite good. It smelled lightly of maple syrup and the wings were juicy. The pasta was a BYOP and we chose Fettucine Alfredo Prawn and it was surprisingly decent. The shared platter had more than 6 different things on it, and it was a good portion. The service was also very attentive, which surprised me because I have heard many bad reviews before. When the bill came, it was pretty legit for 5 people, no one paid more than $15. The only downside was the bathroom and its horrible smell. Overall the experience was pretty good. If you were disappointed in the past, you may want to try this place again!
Was into this location a few weeks back to try the wood cooked flatbread was told to try the tandori chicken version. It looked nice a bit small in size for the $14 price tag. The beard had a nice crunch but unfortunatly all I could taste was the chutney and cilantro. I could not see much chicken let alone taste it. Very disapointed over all evem more so when I had to pay $6 for a beer. At $10 and less spice and more chicken I would have been happier.
Service was good very friendly no one appeared to be sitting around all staff was moving and working to keep guests happy. Nice set up with the exception of the entrance to the parking lot you can easily take the first entrance that will bring you to a differnet complex. I personally have driven past this location 100's times but the road sign really does not stand out too well in that location. In any case I will keep on passing by in the future.
so i've eaten here pretty much every time i go to ikea, it's just a big cafeteria and the over-worked employees running the counter. At least they let you mix and match items.
the mashed potatoes and meatballs are all right
bad items: the pasta (the sauce SUCKS), roasted chicken (overcooked both times i've had it)
the best deal is the unlimited refills of pop/coffee for $1
We have been ordering from this place for a few years- since we moved to the tri-cities in 2006. We always get delivery and we are always very happy with it. We each get a meal for one which gives us tastes of a few different dishes. There is plenty of food and it always tastes fresh and delicious. The service is very friendly when we call and when the food is delivered. The menu is extensive - highly recommend!
We had some friends staying with us, and we had always thought the name of the restaurant was interesting. So we decided to give Sushi Elephant a try.
Parking in that mini strip mall is always terrible, with the Pho 99, and the Insadong Korean restaurant, parking is always scarce. We lucked out with someone who was just leaving.
As we walked in, we were hit with a harsh bright turquoise decor. As we were seated we found the decor more and more odd. Pillars intentionally put everywhere (perhaps to give the facade of privacy) a mish mash of art work (everything from japanese to european, to women breast feeding..)
The server mentioned their specials for the evening (discounts on a few sashimi items) and we took a look at the menu. We were quite taken aback at the prices. It was probably the priciest sushi we've seen in Coquitlam! Everything was a good 20-30% more expensive than any other sushi place we've been... and we go to a lot of sushi places.
We fought the urge to be rude and just walk out, and ordered a few items. A few special rolls, a few staple foods like sashimi and tempura. The food was decent. Everything was well prepared and well presented and seemed quite fresh.
Service was reasonable as well. Friendly and helpful. We had to keep asking for tea though, as the cups they give you are more like sake cups, so one gulp and it's gone. Larger cups or a pot of tea would certainly make more sense.
Overall it was a mixed experience. The food was decent, service was good, but parking, decor and prices will certainly keep us from coming again.
So why am I bothering to submit a review. It's always good. Great in fact. I have been going to the Keg for over 30 years. I think I've been to every location. I have never had a bad meal.
The food is always good. There are no surprises. This is the best place for steaks. Just popped into Coquitlam for a casual meal with a friend. I had the shrimp cocktail (huge shrimp) and he had the escargot. You have to have the escargot! We had the prime rib (12oz) and the Sirloin Neptune. Fantastic food. Fantastic service.
No surprises. You can always count on the Keg!
Im so sad that the new managment/owners have changed the portions. I used to eat here weekly and im sad to say that I will not return. I miss the friendly female staff that used to work there. They used to make the best little cookies. Ive noticed that the prices have stayed the same. I ordered, what would have been enough for 3 people, and I could've eaten it all to myself. Portions are wayyyyy to small!!
What a sad sad sad day. Goodbye Sushi Mori.
Took my family for dinner and the service was slow and the place was very loud. I could accept that but part way thru dinner my daughter noticed a fruit fly in the chili pepper jar that I just had sprayed over my food. I called the manager to tell him and instead of at least apologizing he basically told us we were lying as we are trying to point out the fly in the jar. He grabbed jar and no response ever. WORST CUSTOMER service ever. Even the poor waitress had to tell me how embarassed they are of the owners. ZERO respect or care for their customers. Will never go again and encourage all others not to go and tell your friends about how poor this place is. This place should NOT be serving food or be in business. Go to Anton's or Anduccis. Much better food and way better service
In order to keep their doors open, pubs and restaurants need to be outstanding, exceptional, and make you feel like you are the best customer they have.
Unfortunately, the foggy dew does not make you feel like that at all.
The employees could care less if you are just passing thru town, or a 3 year regular.
The waitresses dont want to know your name, and really, just drink your beer and get out.
Unless of course, you are a chick and the bartender likes you, or you are a friend or boyfriend
of one of the waitresses, then you are treated like royalty!
I have watched a friend of one waitresses walk in, at the same time as another customer, and the waitresses and bartender are all smiles with the friend and pour him a beer right away.
The other guy sits down, and 10 minutes later he still hasnt even been greeted or order taken or anything.
It just seems like popular high school kids run the place, and unless you are in their what they consider, "cool", group of friends, dont expect good service.
Well, guess what?
That type of attitude doesnt work in these tough, spendthrift times.
And with the tougher drunk driving laws, and people going to pubs less and less, and the good ol HST taxing us even more, I dont see the foggy dew lasting too much longer, unless the owner(s) pull a rabbit out of the hat and create a new, customer is always first, attitude among the "cool and popular" waitresses and bartenders!
I don't see that happening though.
Ahhh really, what do I care.....
If they close I will just go to the John B. up the road.
I was surprised to see the bad reviews of Cora Breakfast and Lunch...
I'm from Quebec and we have so many Cora's!!! I was more than pleased when I realized that this franchise was finally here, in BC!
Try to find a breakfast place that serve this variety of fresh fruits... NONE! The Dutch? No and in the same price range. Ricky's? Hell NO! It's frozen ones!
For those people who said that it was not worth their money, I'd say that you should just go back to ABC or other cheap breakfast place. Cora's price goes between $8 to $14 the plate. My bill is usually around $15 with the coffee included. Is it that high for a good breakfast?!?
I've never had a bad service. Waiters at Cora work together. You have a main waiter, but another will come with your plate and another one to refill your coffee constantly! And, bonus, some of them speak French! It feels a little bit more like home for me. :)
Every time that I go to Cora, I feel good. People are awesomely nice and I'm always coming out of there with a smile in my face.
Oh! Don't forget to grab a piece of fudge after paying your bill! Yummy...
My classic: The Strawberry Satisfaction with English Cream. Delectable!
I'll always go back to Cora, always...
Future location to be opened in South Surrey... Yeah!
I have to say that when I logged on to this website I was surprised to see so many bad reviews for this place. It's one of our favorite restaurants, and we eat out a lot. It's definitely our favorite for greek food. We live in New West and used to live in Richmond. We pass several greek restaurants on the way but we like Kefi the best. We've even brought a lot of our friends here for dinner and have made loyal customers out of them as well. Service is always acceptable, sometimes better than others, but we've never had bad service. I always find the food consistent and well-seasoned. Which confuses me even more... is it bland or is it salty people???
My favorite thing on the menu is the lamb souvlaki. It's very lean meat and a large portion of meat, not like the large portion of rice you get elsewhere. Hubby almost almost always has the roast lamb. He likes it because the top is crisped. When we have room, we get a bougatsa for dessert. The phillo is nice and crispy and the custard filling is HOT. I recommend this place.
We tried this place last weekend. Walking in, upon first impression it looked like a De Dutch Pannekoek house but after a kids birthday party. Huge tacky decals on the walls and a french county color pallete that made you wonder where they got their inspiration - Party Bizarre?
Unfortunately we had high hopes for this place we had heard good things about. (Well...from one person) so our expecations may have been too high. We couldn't get over the amount of staff in the place and it wasn't even full. There was what appeared to be a general manager, a food runner (who was french and ranted about the maple syrup that he brought to the table until we heard him mention each little puck of liquid was 60 cents extra..) 6 line cooks in uniforms, 2 prep cooks, a head chef, a couple hostesses, and 3 servers. (Gotta give them points for keeping the provincial unemployment rate down).
Then we read the menu. At a glance the pictures looked promising but the prices were outragous. Everything on the menu was overpriced by at least $4 for what you are actually getting. And we're not talking about the mountain of fruit they so cleverly place on every plate to make it look so appealing. Frankly, who wants to fill up on a huge fruit bowl when you're main reason for dining out is to expect getting a nice eggs benny? I don't have anything against fruit as a garnish, but to me it looks like Cora's banks on this being what draws the eye away from the main course, creating an illusion of value when all you're getting is powder mixed hallandaise and bland potato wedges. We had two breakfasts, the dry crepes with the over priced sweet cream (again not fresh made but from a package) and the ham eggs benny with two coffees. Our bill came to over $40.
Needless to say - we won't be back.
The hot and spicy jimmy burger is honestly the best burger I've ever had in my life. I've taken numerous of friends there and they also agree its the best. All of the ingredients are super fresh, especially the bun. The breakfasts are also very good. I've been eating at this restuarant for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal. The people are very friendly, they say thank you to ever person when they leave.
Food and ambience is what you'd expect from a local pub. My only issue was the wings. When you order them, they come served with the sauce of your choice on the side. I'm no wings connoisseur, but anytime I've ever ordered wings, they are coated with the sauce when they arrive at your table. I find they taste much better than when you dip them. Something to do with the sauce soaking into the meet and bones I guess.
Anyways, if thats your thing and you like sauce on the side then this is your place.
We have been going to SushiMori in Coquitlam since it opened... since the change in management it has gone downhill. Today was so disappointing; portions were much smaller, salad was lacking in Tobiko and other things and there were no complimentary appetizers like Edamame and Oshinko. Thumbs down.
Spicy salmon sashimi is huge, and the only reason i come here. You get 3 handfuls of salmon for 9 bucks. Its not the best but its pretty good, and for the amount you receive its great. The rest of the menu is pretty cheap as well and it explains why its often so busy. At least you know the food turns overs often enough since its busy. Be warned that the service is terrible....some of the worst anywhere. Not attentive, dont care about you, probably could use another wait staff. But for cheap sushi and if you are willing to bear the service it might just be worth it.
Went on a Friday night with an Entertainment coupon. Interior decor desperately needs an upgrade. Pretty dead for a Friday only 3 or 4 tables. The lounge was empty. The host/owner?/waiter reminded me of Basil Fawlty. Slow service. Very mediocre food that they pile on (large portions). I guess they are trying to get rid of it. Asked another waitress for some bread. She was very snooty and said "I'll get your server". They seemed more concerned with room service and take out orders. They definitely cannot handle more than a couple of tables at a time. Won't be going back.
I’ve been to Fulin Hotpot several times over the past 2 years and each time, I came out of the restaurant satisfied. Last week, I invited my friends to eat there. There were 8 of us and we all live around downtown area, but because I told them how good the food is, they were willing to drive all the way to Coquitlam to try out the food. I had to make a reservation, as it is usually crowded. They have a selection of sukiyaki or hotpot. Their vegetables and meat are all fresh, the ambiance suits the theme of the restaurant and the service is excellent. We all went out of the restaurant with full stomach and all of us were glad to have made the long trip to try out this restaurant
