Coquitlam Restaurant Reviews
Yoko Sushi1001 Austin Ave, Unit F, Coquitlam
A peaceful place to dine
By ChivalryX of Burnaby (60 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, February 13, 2014 - 2:54pm [Dine in]

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.

Rotten service isn't worth the price of the food.

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.

Disappointing Visit
By Digby_Scallops of out there (50 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - 2:51pm [Dine in]

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.

A much-enjoyed first experience.
By 3amigos of Burnaby (33 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 5, 2014 - 1:17pm [Dine in]

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.

Disgusting veggie burger
By princessgaga of burnaby B.C. (120 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 8:53pm [Dine in]

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.

wontons & frozen siu mie gone downhill
By pete1913 of Vancouver (12 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, January 30, 2014 - 8:07am [Dine in]

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...

Worst wonton ever - should take out the wun tun name, just lousy chinese food
By milou of East Van (46 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, January 5, 2014 - 1:12am [Dine in]

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.

Hon's Coquitlam Off Westwood St
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"

Delicious Pho1169 Pacific St, #160, Coquitlam
Awesome wings, pho soup a bit oily.
By big eye small stomach of Coquitlam (5 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, December 9, 2013 - 3:55pm [Dine in]

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.

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.

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.

I have been ordering from this location for last two years it was the time we moved from Vancouver to Coquitlam and find out the Bella Pizza in town.

very loud atmosphere but decent ribs
By pete1913 of Vancouver (12 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 6:51am [Dine in]

We arrived on a Saturday night around 6:15 pm and was seated within a few minutes in a corner booth with a window view as had reservations. Ordered the back pork ribs, regular and large size ($21 & $27) They arrived in a fairly short time, good size portions, very meaty but a few of the ribs I found a bit dry, as I prefer fattier ribs so maybe next time will order the pork side ribs instead. We picked yam fries, coleslaw, baked potato, corn for the sides. The potato had great texture but was a bit cold. The cornbread did not taste that fresh and a bit dry. One thing that was kind of annoying was that every few minutes or so the staff would put a large moosehead on the birthday person's head and sing their song which was like a birthday chant or something.. it seemed to go on all night. Don't think its that hygienic as well. We could hear screaming kids at the other end as well but if you don't mind people shouting all night and a loud atmosphere you will have a good time.

Four of us were planning to go to another restaurant in the same mall, but it was full, so we decided to chance it with this Korean restaurant which we knew nothing about. This place appears to be run by a Korean family, and the food was delicious. The cold noodle was surprisingly tasty, and the BBQ beef ribs were tender, juicy, and delicious. The pork soup, too, was very tasty, and the seafood egg pancake was not greasy like in some other Korean restaurants. In fact, everything was most satisfactory, and prices were very reasonable. Overall, a very good deal, and the service was quick and attentive. Highly recommended.

Our go to Greek...
By WeekendChef of Burnaby (45 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 26, 2013 - 5:06pm [Dine in]

This is where hubby and I go when we have a craving for Greek food. Food is almost always great (a bit heavy on the salt once or twice but not unbearable) and we've always had outstanding service from their team there. I love the calamari appetizer (good for sharing) and I usually order the mixed souvlaki and hubby greatly enjoys the mediterranean chicken. I've had the greek ribs as well and they're tasty,... with leftovers for a lovely lunch the next day. I usually don't have room for dessert but I did manage to save some room for the bogatsa our last visit. ohhhh... so yummy. Beautifully crisp filo wrapped around piping hot custard. Burned my mouth but so worth it! A yummy treat for us. We like the little outside patio area. The traffic noise isn't too loud and it's nice to sit in a covered patio and just enjoy the nice weather.

Service has always been good for us. Attentive and we've never had to ask for more beverages. Maybe we've just been lucky. We had a birthday party there recently and even though there was only 1 server on (Jessica), she handled it like a trooper. Our group + about 6 patio tables and 3 inside tables. Never felt neglected at all.

Would we go back? Yes. It's our go to Greek place.

Hey hotess - take the lead out of your shoes and find our waitress

Submitted Sunday, August 25, 2013 - 8:57pm [Dine in]

Ever go to a restaurant and know as soon as you stand there for a minute that it's "not going to go well" as my husband said? That's this place. Now I generally like Rickys for breakfast and hoped this fairly new one would be good. Wrong.

We waited on a Sunday morning for at least 10 minutes while the SLOOOOOOWWWW hostess sat two groups ahead of us. She wasn't even pouring coffee just seating. She'd leave and then come back five minutes later. She not only walked slow she looked slow. Note to manager she might be better suited working at another task. On our way out new people waiting were commenting on her as well.

When we were sat the fairly decent waitress got us coffee - we didn't really see her again. One bus boy came by by and tried to refill my husband's coffee by reaching around a corner, and across the table infront of two kids. It was weird I have never seen anyone pour coffee like that. Later some other person came by and offered more coffee and we told her we had only been given 2 sets of cutlery for 4 people. She came back in a minute but instead of setting the 2 missing places she literally dropped the cutlery and napkins onto the table from about 8 inches up and walked away!

When the food came it was again weird coffee-pouring bus boy and not our waitress. She later came by and asked if we were missing anything and I thought that perhaps if you'd served it you'd know. That was the last we saw of her. We even had to eventually get a manager to get our bill for us and then had to go up to pay as no one came by. Service was BRUTAL.

The food was pretty good as always for breakfast, fresh, hot and tasty. No giant portions here which is good but the prices are a bit up there. $50 for a family for breakfast is just too much. I do not think we'd hit up this place again.

Have been here several times now and finally decided to write a review.

The menu is often changing and the food is fresh. Thursdays are great because you have a mini menu of half price eats.
The staff always impress me as they are always on top of it and in a good mood. They always have good tips and bring out hot food.

Would recommend this place for a date night, casual night or family night.
Good for all.

Headed there again tonight.
