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.
We (two seniors & daughter) arrived in the plaza's parking lot a few minutes before the restaurant's opening time of 11:30am, and found the lot very busy (it's rather small, serves a good number of stores, restaurants, and etc., with much of the parking limited to 30-minutes), but we were able to find a spot (for longer parking) without having to go up on the roof, where additional parking is available. (Note: we found out later, that when you dine at the restaurant, they provide "parking permits" that you can put in your vehicle to get 2-hours of parking within the 30-minute parking spots.)
We were the first customers to enter, but were joined by other diners very soon after, and by noon, several tables in the restaurant were occupied.
We found the restaurant clean, 'open' in layout, and bright. There are tables (for 2-4 diners per each) arranged around the perimeter of the restaurant, and several rows of tables throughout the middle of the restaurant - the latter arrangement allowing service for four or more diners at one table, or the putting together of tables, for service to more, as need be. A good arrangement we thought, for rather efficient use of space.
Upon entering, and selecting where we wished to sit, service to our table was prompt, courteous, and friendly. Cups of tea were brought to our table with the menus. We requested a pot of tea, and it was brought when the server returned to take our order.
The food ordered:
-- lunch vegetable bento box ($8.50) - which came with salad, veggie or avocado roll (the latter was chosen), a daily special (an orange), tofu teriyaki, and a selection of tempura.
-- party tray 'C' ($35.95) - which came with several pieces of the following rolls: California, dynamite, chopped scallop, red, and orange mango, and sushi (three pieces per each of): tuna, salmon, chopped scallop, and masago.
There was no additional charge for the tea, and miso soup was provided at no additional charge as well.
Our dining experience: this was a first visit for us, and we were solidly-impressed!! The 'environment' (ambience, layout, and etc.) was perfectly fine. The service attentive (and not 'overdone'), friendly, and courteous. The food -- why we went there!! was fresh, well-prepared and presented - and in one word (difficult for me!!), was 'yum'!!!
A return visit is definitely being planned.
Ordered a veggie burger with cheese. Rang in at over nine dollars! Had to wait 8 minutes for the grossest veggie burger in town. Just because I don't eat meat doesn't mean I want my burger on stale cardboard. They should ask if you want a normal bun. It totally fell apart, was mostly bun, everything fell out when I picked it up and the patty was nasty. Had weird pieces of veggies and a foul spice.
Yuk yuk yuk - I want my nine bucks back. Don't ever have it trust me.
Hon's used to serve really good quality wontons that were large, really good texture, good flavour... recently we had won ton soup and they were really awful. Not horrible but what a difference from last year.. they were mushy and did not even look like hon's wontons that have been served before.. even the broth is so watered down now.. the wontons used to be a bit chewy in texture with a great shrimp flavour, now they are totally bland and soft. Also purchased a frozen pack of hon's siu mie (pork dumplings) to see how the flavour was and after they were not good but dry and lacked any flavour.. if this is your signature dish, please try to make some improvements...
Firstly, I am a big boy, that said I can say the servings were very generous and tasty, try the yellow Egyptian rice, works well with their meat dishes. The prices were very good for the size of the offering. Almost missed the location, saw their opening soon sign (you have to get it from Lougheed Hwy east bound a block west of Rona, but well worth the effort. next time I shop Coquitlam centre mall, I will go back)
we had a nice lunch, eat here at least once a week. Service was good. They sang happy birthday to me!
Will be back to try the pulled pork macaroni and cheese.
we always are looked after here, we have our favorite waitress who works in the mornings. Shes alays sweet and remembers us.
I just can't believe how this place has gone down the hill over the years. After a night at the movie we had cravings for some chinese food. I told my wife why don't we check out Hon's because they open late. What a mistake! We got there almost 9 pm and there were people still eating. So we ordered wonton large noodle soup, beef with satay sauce rice noodle and curry beef stew on rice. The food came fairly quick. The noodle soup came first and it was not cooked properly, the noodle was still very chewy. The soup itself was bland and the wonton tasted like stale meatloaf. This is probably the worst wonton we've ever had. Hon's need to be ashamed that they can't even make their specialty right. The curry beef stew was average at best and the beef was a little tough and bland. The only thing decent was their rice noodle dish despite it only came with few slices of beef. Hon's need to take quality control seriously. First, start with the lady behind the noodle counter, she need to learn basic things like how to boil noodle. She probably just landed from china and started working at Hon's. My wide egg noodle tasted like undercooked fettuccine. Also their noodle broth is so water down, not enough flavor and so bland. A good noodle broth like in other chinese noodle congee place is usually rich with flavor. We are really disappointed with Hon's and we will not be in hurry to come back. No wonder why Hon's closed their Richmond store, they won't stand a chance competing against many good restaurants in Richmond. For a real chinese place in the area we'd recommend Deer Garden across the street. You'll get more quality and value.

Beware when do you take out Chinese BBQ !
I was waiting for my wife outside while she was lining up to order some BBQ ROAST PORK
I noticed she was next in line to order, so I went outside to watch the chef cut the meat.
She was to order 4lbs of the roast pork. the chef weighed the pork.. priced the box.. then proceeded
to cut the meat... I quickly noticed that he cut a large piece away and put it to the side... He boxed it up..
and I told my wife what I saw.. We went home Quickly and weighed it on our scale... We were shorted 1lb
of the meat... I went back to hons and confronted the manager and the chef... I got them to weigh the pork again ... and it also showed that I was ripped off 1lb... The manager insisted that he only made a mistake
.. But this just confirms my years of patronage there, I was suspicious with a few of my previous visits .. they appeared to be less than what I ordered... I am sure I was ripped off all those years also!!! thanks to my trusty food scale... I will Never go back to HONS ever again!!!!! My word to you is to do not have them cut the meat!!! you cant see what they do behind the chopping area!!! At TNT they have see through windows... so they are not tempted to save some meat for their family when they go home!!! One word about HONS "SCAMMERS"
Not bad for another pho place. Prices are on par with others in the area. Service is decent (same gentleman served us the two times we've been there). Newly opened so it still feels pretty clean. The appetizer deep fried chicken wings tastes really good. Nice and crisp batter with juicy wings and drumettes along with a generous side of plum dipping sauce. $4 Grilled subs are pretty good as well.
Only complaint is the oiliness of the pho soup. I'm not sure if all pho places are as oily like this and I just noticed it, or if it's just this restaurant. The oil in the soup that was spilt on the table and also left in your bowl after you finish the contents of the noodle soup actually solidified within the time span of our meal. It wasn't a very pleasant sight to see white lard spots forming on the table while we ate.
Will return for the yummy wings though.
Although the new owners of the old Austin Heights diner got off to a shaky start, things are much improved and they are working hard to provide great food at a reasonable price. We have dined here a few times since they opened and I must say the food has gotten better each time. New waitresses have been hired and service is much quicker. The portions have increased to substantial and arrive at the table piping hot, we ordered the Combo for 4 and it was very good, really enjoyed the Ginger Beef. The restaurant is clean and fresh, compared to when it was the "Diner". We are looking forward to trying some new dishes that are on the menu, I recommend giving this place a chance, as it keeps getting better.
I go to Pho Boi so often because of good food.Not the discount on purpose yet .I am very glad when they just show a sign "EVERY 10 GET 1 FREE"
I LOVE IT
we love it
and for sure you will love it too
Hurry up let go check it out .Im so exciting.
The Bella Pizza in Coquitlam is my place for pizza now. In fact it was my first time ordering their Mexicana and it was very appetizing and mouth-watering. The vegetable on the pizza was fresh and the beef is the one the use it for meat balls, it was full of flavor.
I definitely order from them again.
Happened upon this location the other day, and very happy we did.
My girlfriend and I had lunch and it was fantastic. I had the Pulled Pork sandwich and she had the Steak sandwich. Mine was so yummy and my friend said her steak was cooked perfectly and so tender !!
The server was great and very engaging..made us feel right at home!!
We really liked the decor, which is very different than other ABC's.
We will be back for sure!!
We attended this location and booked their backroom for my parents anniversary party dinner. The staff went above and beyond to ensure every detail was taken care of the food came out in a timely manner and was hot and delicious. They have there liquor license (not sure what previous review is talking about as they have a really nice lounge and a big fully stocked bar) we have already booked our family's Christmas gathering in the room. Thanks again for making our evening so special.
We go as a family all the time, it truly is a family restaurant. We always get great service and enjoy the home cooked meals.
They often have specials that are pretty good that come with dessert! Grandma always gets her seniors meal with coconut cream pie.
We've been trying to go and check out their Sunday buffet, we've heard good things.
