To my knowledge there is no set seatings /times for this restaurant. So we were very surprised to be told to leave because the "next reservations" had "been waiting for a long time. We were celebrating a birthday complete with cake that they "allowed us to bring in" with people who had not seen each other in many many years. When I complained there was a "very sorry" and you can stay.....of course we did not want to by this point. The food is fine. They missed several items from our meal. The restaurant is "not clean". There was no attempt to offer us any compensation. I ignored the other warnings on this site. Perhaps the other Nagano in Port Moody is better. If you want authentic Sushi and impeccable service drive into Vancouver.
Came here with my family whom I haven't seen in about 10 years.. The food was delicious , but the service was poor! The waitress walked away before we were all finished ordering, we didn't get all the food we ordered... And we were asked to leave because others needed the table... My mom complained and all they had to say was "sorry" over and over again.. needless to say... we were upset with the service and we are not coming back !
This is my husband's and my favourite Greek restaurant. The food is sooo good and the service is fast!!! I called in for my husband's 50th birthday party and they accommodated our party of 15. Love their roast lamb and their mousaka. The Tarama is also a must try. Totally recommend this place for any occasion.
For the second time this location has botched my *simple* order. All I wanted was to add bacon to my combo; it seems they have no problem charging you for it, but actually receiving it -- that's a whole different story. I would highly recommend another location for your next Wendy's visit.
The wife and I decided on the Pantry because of the food and past good experiences. We're sorry to say our lunch was mediocre at best. The restaurant was smaller than its previous location up the block. It took less than 30 seconds to be seated, but then again there were not that many people in the restaurant either.
At first glance of the lunch menu, we were surprised by the lack of selections available. After getting our drinks and my wife deciding on the chicken quesadillas, she was told that the restaurant had no more wraps. Another 5 minutes went by before the waitress came back to take her new order. After the waitress gave us our food, that was the last time we saw of her. The food was good and my wife's salad was very flavourful. At no point were we asked if we wanted our drinks refilled even though our glasses were emptied and the only conversation that occurred with the 2nd waitress was if we done with our emptied plates and here's the bill. Atleast at other places, we would be asked if we liked a dessert or two. Seemed like we were not welcomed at this Pantry.
By the end of our meals, $32.85 with 1 iced tea seemed expensive. It wouldn't be so bad if the service was excellent. Such a waste of time and money for a mediocre lunch. Should have gone to other nearby establishments such as Wing's, Ricky's or Boston Pizza when were had the hankering for Western style food. The other places would be a little more expensive compared to The Pantry but it's not all about the cost. Most times it's about the experience and this is one we would like to FORGET.
spent over $120 on tea, coffee, and cakes with few friends. When I asked for some hot water to refill on top of the tea, the guy asked for $0.75 for just hot water! Talking to the manager, the answer was "my place, my rule". Really pissed of specially when the manager start acting like an a_ _. I did not pay to get hot water, because it was a ripoff. I am writing this as I promised the manager that I let people know how hurtful is the customer service, and what a ripoff when it comes to pricing. drip coffee $4.25!! a peace of a normal mousse $7.99. Nothing has a price in the windows, and you get surprised when you get the bill with how expensive are the such normal quality! NOTHING SPECIAL ABOUT THIS GUYS. Don;t wast your time any money on them. Enjoy your time somewhere else, and save yourself a good nice fun night NOT visiting this guys.
We went there for a bite a few times and while our teenager chomps down on Mac & Cheese, I usually drink hot coffee and order fruit pies. The pies are skimpy and college/university campus value and nothing to write home about. It's an okay place to hit for the munchies....
This restaurant chain has been around for decades in Canada. We went there long ago and it was a good hit and then soon disappointed. I went one time to a brunch and was not impressed after paying good money so we never returned but there will always be a fan base of seniors and other customers.
Purdy's beats out most of the competition and was phenomenal at the start but they deviated from their beginnings to become overpriced. I recall buying second chocolates (imperfect ones) in 2lb-5lb shoe box style varieties over a decade ago for a very reasonable good price and like all restaurants and food outlets, they inflated their prices big time. Sure, let's blame the cocoa fields, labour, inflation and others for their prices..they're still at the top but they lost customers with their bloated costs. A simple yard of chocolate has skyrocketed in price and while it is yummy sweets, the prices hurt your wallet. Like Lindt and others, they need to come off cloud 9 and get grounded despite the high quality that is undeniable. Too bad the tourist attraction at the Vancouver head office shut down.....love their pecan clusters and others.
I cannot comment on the restaurant but Ikea`s downstairs concession stand is a good value for the money with cinnamon buns that remind you of your childhood, good prices on hotdogs, chocolate bars, soda pop and ice cream. Why not try it out if you have the munchies, it will fill you up without bleeding your wallet.
Well...what can you say. It is a small fast food place. The food is mediocre and the portions have shrunk over time. We went after lunch to ensure that it was not busy. The staff decided to have their lunch break a few tables away. They were very loud and it became an annoyance. Besides that, one word describes Gem...mediocre. Not back soon.
Red Robin is a family restaurant that is befitting of any occasion whether it is a dinner with friends, birthday celebrations or family get togethers. However, once you've tasted their burgers after several visits it become mundane and uneventful. Sorry to say, their unlimited refills on soda pop and flavoured non-alcoholic drinks are a poor value and not worth the price. The menu needs to be resurrected big time to bring in new flavours and varieties. If you went to Red Robin and did not return for 1 year the menu would be undoubtedly the same with a few superficial changes, if any. Even their staff recommend changes but HQ does not listen. They should try to bring in new cultural flavours like Louisanna, nachoes, wings, chili, different soups and a variety of desserts than the same boring stuff. We used to go there for birthdays and special celebrations but now all of us go elsewheres. Change is good...
I went to Urban Gate with my family and found the menu pricey and ordered off the specials which was more in tune what their prices should be at Urban Gate. Good atmosphere but the bakery is overpriced and other Persian places are cheaper with the same quality of desserts, etc. I would not go there in a long time and it fell short to get my recommendation. You can watch tv in the men's washroom, the jury is out on that theme....too bad Kandoo went out of business.
Me and my friends dine in regulary, prices are pretty average with the portions. Great tasting food from what you expect from a pub. The dinning area is dimmly lit, but it has alot of charactor. Staff is timely and friendly. I recommend this place for a casual place to have a beer or hangout.
Very good Pho noodle soup, and chicken. The owner will remember you after a few times and is more friendly after that. Avoid this place from 11:45am-12:30pm Mon-Fri. They get the high school crowd in at that time and it gets crazy in there. My last time there, I waited for 35 minutes to get my Pho even though I was the second customer in the restaurant. It was the only time I waited even more than 10 min, but on this day the owner chose to get all of the high school students fed before making my order. Haven't returned since in principal, but I do miss the food.
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.
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.
We decided to finally try Yoko on a Saturday afternoon since we drive by this restaurant very often.
When we arrived the place was quite empty. The decor is nothing special, but everything was neat and tidy.
We were happily greeted by the lady owner and were promptly seated. She gave our 14 month old a big smile and chatted with her for a bit before getting us some tea. As with most Japanese restaurants in Coquitlam, this one is Korean run as well.
We ordered a few of our usual dishes, chiraishi don, and a chicken udon in soup, so the munchkin could have some as well.
Overall everything was very fresh, and they used higher quality ingredients than other nearby Japanese restaurants. (e.g. sockeye salmon vs atlantic)
Service was friendly and you could tell this was a family run restaurant as it felt quite homey dining here.
Price wise items were a touch more expensive than nearby places, but given the differences in quality, we didn't mind too much. Portion sizes were quite average. One interesting note was with the Chiraishi don, she offered to refill the rice when we were done. Something no other place does.
Overall we enjoyed the experience, and it was nice to be in a quiet restaurant where no one minded if our 14 month old fussed during her meal. Certainly nice to have yet another option in our neighbourhood.
The food is decent and priced ok for what you get, but the service is HORRIBLE! I called in an order for the goat curry special and the lamb curry special with extra naan, roti, Aloo parantha at 11am when they first opened. The girl, probably a relative of the owner, told me that it would take 45min-1hour for my order to be done and to come at noon. I got there just after noon and paid for my order, but was told to wait another five minutes. No big deal, right? At 12:20pm, I asked where my food was. The girl snapped at me that they're getting it ready. I asked again at 12:30pm where my food was, and she snapped at me AGAIN that I needed to be more patient. FINALLY just after 12:45pm, she dumps the food on the counter and says, "There! Good-bye!" I wasn't being rude and I had asked nicely, but even if I was being rude about it, there was no apology for the lateness. It's a good thing I didn't have somewhere important to go, but I do have a medical condition that requires me to eat regularly. I will not be ordering from there ever again.
I have been here twice previously, both times thoroughly enjoying myself. Not so much on the latest visit. We attended about 8:30 PM on a Friday night. The lights were fully up(it was night not day) & the music (certainly not Japanese) was quite loud.
They dimmed the lights twice (without asking) but raised them again. Finally I asked if they could be dimmed, they did so & then raised them again. This was at the instruction of I assume the head hostess.
The food itself was quite good, although they missed a dish we ordered. Service was at best aloof and non attentive. A real shame, as the atmosphere here was one of the nicest I have been in in the lower mainland.
