What happened to this place?
By busterwantstofish of East Van (12 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 29, 2013 - 10:29am [Dine in]

After quite a few years of dining here, I can honestly say this place has taken a huge turn for the worst. Always better than the rest (earls, cactus etc) of "those" places, it is now a small step above abysmal. The recent menu changes on certain items are so unusual (read bad) that the only motivating factor could have been the bottom $$$ line, and NOT a better menu of choices. I really don't want to get into details here, but if you enjoy the place, keep it simple with burgers or sandwiches... something that really can't get screwed up in the process. I tried the new mussels dish with their usually killer calamari, amongst other things, and it it was sooooooooooo bad ..... like a goodyear tire product. I recently found out that all business decisions for milestones are now made back east, which means they have no concept of whats really going on locally. But, in their defense, the staff is absolutely first rate......

Anyways, I ( we) wont ever be back as the above experience is usually the first step when restaurants are likely to close their doors in the future.

caveat emptor..........

Best Sushi around!

I have been a regular patron of O sushi for over 5 years and have never left displeased with my experience. I constantly tell all my friends about how good this place is, the sushi is delicious and fresh, there isn't a single roll I haven't enjoyed! Every friend I have taken there has agreed with me that it is hands down the best sushi in the lower mainland. Though I have 3 sushi places within walking distance of my house, I'd rather get in my car and drive up to westwood plateau. I'd reccomend this restaurant to anyone looking for the best sushi

I have been here many times but last time was particularly good. Try the lettuce wraps! The bandara salad is also fantastic. The service was great, and the food came out quickly. Will continue going here. I have never had any issues at a Cactus Club. The only thing I could critique is the fact it's so dark in there, even on a sunny day.

Mui Garden was alot better......
By aeis2000 of Burnaby (10 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, April 13, 2013 - 8:15am [Dine in]

This restaurant replaced mui garden with no changes in the decor.
We thought of giving this place a try so we ordered a few dishes. The place seems to have alot of patrons and my guess was they were all there to give this place a try.

We ordered the BBQ pork as it seems to be their speciality. Turned out to be a big disappointment. The pork was tough and chewy like something that you will get at the T&T "price reduced" section before closing time.

Waiters seems to be in a constant state of confusion. They need to recheck on what a customer has ordered.

Overall the food was sub standard.

We loved Mui Garden but this place....we will give it a miss.

Note: - The best BBQ meat around burnaby / vancouver area is still at the Chong Lee supermarket at Rupert.

Sushi Oyama3055 Anson Avenue, Coquitlam
Just as good as Metrotown, less crowds
By ChivalryX of Burnaby (60 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, April 11, 2013 - 10:50am [Dine in]

Sushi Oyama in Metrotown has been one of our favourites for years now. We were quite excited when we saw the "opening soon!" sign in Coquitlam since it's closer to home.

We've been to the Coquitlam location 4-5 times since it's grand opening and have found it to be just as good as the Metrotown location in terms of food. In terms of service it's actually quite improved with the ability to ring for a server via a button on each table!

Ambiance is a bit more updated than the Metro location, and quite modern. Booths and private rooms are spacious and less cramped.

Food quality we've found is on par with the Metro location, and the menus are identical.

Another plus is way fewer crowds. We've found almost any time we've come there has been ample room.

The only down side is parking is mediocre. The lot is small, and often packed with folks visiting other establishments in the area. There is limited street parking available as overflow though.

Overall we've quite enjoyed the new Sushi Oyama in Coquitlam and hope they're here to stay!

Cora's Breakfast & Lunch3025 Lougheed Highway, #390, Coquitlam
A great place for a healthy meal
By Bauzer of Coquitlam (2 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

I first went to Cora thanks to some friends who moved in to the area. We had a large group that grew bigger due to lack of communication, and they were able to accommodate us well.
The place is very bright and uplifting. Almost geared towards a kids look, but still bearable.
The key thing about this place is the fruit. SO much fruit and its great and healthy!
Many of the plates come with loads of fruit and the pictures really do match the meals! Some very interesting artistic culinary skills happening here.

I recommend getting a smoothie here. One of the best I get, and draped in a few pieces of fruit as well. Well worth it!

Complaints made by other reviewers regarding the crepes are correct. They are some sort of midway between a pancake and a crepe, so be forewarned. I didn't mind personally, but I knew about it walking in.

I guess the service will depend on who you get, but the very pretty girl serving us was actually quite good. Despite the place getting totally packed and crazy busy with a line out the door, she was able to get our drink and food orders promptly but after we were served everything she didn't come back as often. It is REALLY busy there.

The prices were reasonable. Fruit prices vary depending on what you get, and if you get a fruit meal there is quite a bit of variety. If you are planning on hitting a Denny's or IHOP for breaky, consider this place. About the same price point with waaaay healthier options.

Come early. Showing up at 9 had little issue with seating, but come around 10 and its a different story. Be prepared to put your name on the list and wait in line for a few minutes.

Won't last long :(
By tokbraider123123 of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, April 7, 2013 - 12:32pm [Dine in]

Overall the food was good, the same as any other ABC restaurant, BUT the place was empty on a Saturday night, so slow that one of the waitresses was actually cleaning the blinds . Which is crazy considering it's the middle of the weekend.
Recommendations: They should get the games and the gift shop that the schoolhouse location has, that's what makes an ABC, I think that a lot of restaurants have struggled in that location....

No liquor license yet so that may have contributed to less customers.

Honestly might not go back unless they improve the overall ambiance.

Submitted Thursday, April 4, 2013 - 1:59am [Dine in]

Ok, so it's Denny's.. well believe it or not, if the people working there *really* don't care enough it can be an awful experience. This one seems to be run well and the server I've had most times is a nice lady who does her job well. The food is cooked as it should be and arrives quickly. After a tip I'm usually paying close to $20 which isn't the best value really at all.. but I guess it's more a convenience than anything to have a decent meal done properly at strange hours with a smile. I'll return for sure.

More a sports bar than anything
By Sir Eat a Lot of north vancouver BC (14 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 11:02am [Dine in]

I agree with other reviewers that it was a well-lit, cozy diner with plush booths with decent diner-type food. We went for lunch on a Monday with our two and four year old boys. Pros: They have high chairs and a kids menu at $6.99 with drink and dessert and handed out crayons to the boys. Cons: My two year old said, “mommie, why she not wearing pants?” referring to the hostess in a miniskirt. I looked around and saw TSN streaming from all corners of the place along with dedicated screens for each of the four counter seats and other scantily clad and busty waitresses, I realized that this was a place vying for sports bar traffic. This was something we did not notice during our first visit for Sunday brunch months ago. It is located in a strip mall with a Club 16 fitness so I guess that makes sense. Just not a place I’d take my family with young children again.

Continued Disappointing performance
By yuetc of Vancouver, BC. (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, March 26, 2013 - 11:15am [Dine in]

This Japanese Sushi shop moved from the old shop opposite in the same corner of the mall.
They had some renovation and now have a better seating area than before, but the price is more!

I don't mind paying a little more if the food & service quality are good!
Ever since it is operated in this new location by 2 new guys ( The old one was managed by 2 older guys), I have never had a happy nor satisfied experience in terms of quality and service!

The cashiers & servers never greet customer with even a "Hi!".
Customers stand in front of the cash registry waiting to order, but they are always busy tidying the till, the counter, etc. A friendly greeting like " What can I do for you? or simply Hi" is completing missing, they would just look at you coolly!

I once asked them not to shed the sesame seeds over, because sesame is too strong for the natural taste of seafood. They replied: "We never put sesame seed unless customers asked for it!" That day, I got the chopped scallop & Philadelphia rolls, OMG, they are all covered with sesame seeds!!!!!

Last Saturday, I went there with my daughter, hoping this time they have some improvements!
At the first glance the rainbow rolls and Philadelphia Rolls seemed alright, except that the pieces at the end of the rolls looked not having enough stuffing, and were very limp and small!

After the first bite,I found the rice was in fact not cooked thru! What a shame for Asians not knowing how to cook RICE!
The chalky taste really upset my stomach ! Breaking the rice apart, I looked closely and found the inside of the rice was still white - really uncooked!
I brought the dish to show them to the 2 cashiers, unbelievable they just stared at me, then turned to the 2 preparers behind the counter, who were also staring at me!
They all said nothing, not even a word in comfort, but wore a grin like we are making something big to ask for something in return....
Feeling upset and disappointed, we just finished the cheese and fish stuffing but leaving the rice behind!
I don't think this location is worth trying for the next time!

Total Disappointment
By Eagle One of Coquitlam BC (3 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, March 19, 2013 - 9:14pm [Dine in]

I thought I would try this place out as I live nearby. I went in today for lunch. Upon entering, I was not even greeted by the tall skinny guy with glasses, just asking "all you can eat? For one?" and took me to a table. He tossed the order sheet, menu and pencil on the table then walked away.

A waitress came over, brought me a pot of tea, said nothing and walked away, not even a "hello/how are you today?". I completed the order sheet and placed it on the edge of the table. She came by, took it and said nothing still.

The food came out at a rapid pace filling the table up quickly. Nothing was ever said by the servers.

I asked for some "gari" and the server looked puzzled by my request. I had to explain to her that it is pickled ginger. "you know... the pink stuff usually given with maki sushi". After that she figured it out and brought me some. How would a server in a sushi joint not know what "gari" is? :S

Tempura was ok- but what is this "seafood" they have on that tempura menu? It wasn't a prawn/shrimp.

Goma-ae arrived. It was a block of spinach about the size of a Timbit, with some dressing drizzled on top. No sesame seeds, no flavour.

Negitoro Roll- I couldn't see nor taste the onion. I think it wasn't even in there.

The Dynamite Roll was lackluster. Tasteless and boring. I couldn't even identify the tempura prawn in the roll due to the copious amount of lettuce in there along with dry cucumber. Terrible.

The BC Roll was the worst I've ever seen- a piece of what I think was salmon, about the size of 3 nickels stacked on each other and loosely rolled with enough lettuce I could have made a salad. Worst BC Roll I've ever tasted.

Chicken karrage- was dry and overcooked.

Seafood Motoyaki- very greasy, poor presentation. I usually get this in an oyster shell, or a ceramic shell. But here, they put it into a little tin better suited to a butter tart.

It looks like they are trying to save money by adding lettuce into every roll. It's like they've given up and just don't care.

I guess the "Under New Management" signs around the place does not equate to better quality based on what other people have written.

I paid my bill and left. No tip deserved. Will I return? Never.

Where do I begin? Well how bout with the bizarre cooler that greets you as you walk in. It had a droopy, sorry looking chocolate cake with about 15 cans of spray whipping cream. Hmmm. Guess we're not.ordering dessert tonight! We were excited to try out Pasta Polo, we're somewhat new to the area & had an Entertainment Book coupon. We'd definitely be going back if it was good. We were seated with our 1 year old with no where for him to sit. After the hostess abruptly walked away, I walked (with baby in tow) back to the pile of high chairs & lugged one over myself. The menu is gigantic which gave us pause. A kitchen can't handle such a huge amount of choices well. Our dishes sounded fine. When they came mine was a heaping pile of blah pasta. I mean Chef Boy R Dee is tastier. Not kidding! It came with the fattiest gross ribs I may have ever had. My hubby's steak reminded him of a tv dinner. The bathroom was ice cold, no heat. Our server really did the best she could but I didn't even eat my meal. Oh & there was really loud banging ????? coming out of the kitchen. I will NEVER eat here again. Our bill would have been over $50 without that coupon, Keg prices for absolute garbage. I created an account specifically to write this review. Ugh, you've been warned.

We came here for a group of 4. Both times the staff are very bad services but the food here is ok. so so, good things is they don't let us wait, take out is fast ready to go. their price is definately not the most expensive. I've also had the yam tempura role and it is also delicious and filling. The portions are fair and its a way better alternative to buying food from the concession stand at the movie theatre. The perfect little sushi joint for a quick and delicious bite and its on the way to everything.

so far is ok. cheap food

I've purchased some pastries from the bakery and it was gross. The pastries went bad and I brought them back to the store. The owner instead of apology and refund or at least offer something else, he asked me to take my business somewhere else and do not get back to the store. He was supper rude he has bad temper and he was ready to get violent. I am not sure with this customer service how long more he can survive. I've tried to support this business but now I regret it. I've should of called the cups when he yield at me. Please don't waste your time and money in that store!!!!

I have been several times for breakfast and lunch. The service is always oustanding. The first time we had pasta it was fantastic. We had a spaghetti bolognese and a spaghetti with vegetable/tomato sauce. The sauces were great. There were tons of vegetables in my wifes dish. It was so good we went back and ordered the same thing. This time the portions were barely two thirds the size. There were very few fresh vegeables in my wifes dish. My plate had very little Bolognese sauce on it. It is clearly hit and miss maybe depending on who is cooking. They need to be consistent with both the quality and the portion sizes. Overall I recommend it but avoid the busy periods because you will wait a long time.

We got a flyer from these guys in the mail and saw that they had a great hockey night special decided to look them up to see some reviews.

We decided to give it a shot and even joked with guy on the phone that he had a crappy review and that we were giving him a shot anyway. We ordered the hockey special and a load of wings.

The pizza was good but the wings were awesome and looked pretty average size to me. It was about 45 min but it was nice and hot and we recieved one of their "mega money " vouchers for $2 off next time which appareantly you get everytime you order over $40.

All in all it was pretty good and I dont usually write reviews but thought these guys got a bad wrap on this site. No one ever writes a review when they are happy lol

I think they are worth trying out..... decide for yourself.
