Pho 99 Vietnamese Noodle House228 Schoolhouse Street, #14, Coquitlam
This Place Is Pho Real!!
By diner40 of Vancouver (95 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, December 8, 2012 - 11:24am [Dine in]

Pho puns aside , if you are looking for an excellent very affordable meal that will fill you to the brim for around ten bucks Pho 99 is your answer.

I have eaten here on a few occassions now and have never been disappointed with the exception of an order of their wings, avoid them. Everything else I have tried here has been outstanding. My favorite is the Chicken Vietnamese Style sub sandwhich. For a mere four dollars you get a very decent sized sandwhich loaded with "real" chicken , not the processed stuff, a generous amount of crisp veggies like carrot and cucumber and bunches of cilantro. Again, all this for four dollars, you just can't go wrong.

I have also enjoyed their Vietnamese Bowls with minced pork, chicken and a heaping portion of noodles.
This is sure to fill you up and absolutely delicious for under ten dollars.

The restaurant is not fancy, heck just outside there are people bowling, but it's a huge , bright space with a staff that are there when you need them.

If you are dining on a budget and looking for an excellent meal this is one place you have to visit.

Bella Pizza for the Office Christmas Party

Submitted Wednesday, December 5, 2012 - 12:18am [Delivery]

Christmas party.This year I decided to order pizza for the office Christmas party. After looking at some mix review from Bella Pizza in Coquitlam. I placed a few hundred dollars worth of pizza with Bella Pizza to be delivered for lunch.For me it was the first time ordering Bella Pizza but some of the stuff had this pizza before.Delivery was on time as requested. Food was hot and smells delicious. The pizzas are quit thick with lots of toppings. These guys really put a good amount of toppings on pizzas. I believe this is the real pizza for the money I paid. The stuff also enjoyed the pizzas too. I think I will order from Bella Pizza for the office more often

Disappointed with horrible service
By Kensie of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 9:28pm [Dine in]

Came with my family if 10 for dinner.
- Seated for 15 min before I decided to get up to ask for menus
- got up again to find someone to order
- had to ask again for tea and water
- did not provide enough plates so sister had to use a serving plate
- did not tell us what food they brought us and just place on table
- we asked to keep the tea pot but they said no and told us that they will come back often to refill tea (which they did not)
- we wanted to order more food and went to find someone to take our order. We waited 15 min fur someone to come and we gave up

My husband and myself have been waitresses and waiters before and understand that it can get busy and short staffed but this was just horrible and beyond bad service. The food is good but for the expensive pricing I expected way more.

To note this is the second time we have had horrible service. We had decided to give this place a second chance hoping it was just that one time.

We will never return to this place again. For $260 no one was full and was too annoyed to wait any longer to order more food.

Ok Food but TERRIBLE SERVICE.

Submitted Sunday, December 2, 2012 - 10:40am [Dine in]

we had a staff function here and when the first few started trickling in it took 30 min to even get a glass of water and it was not busy. The tables with 2 people received more attention then our table of 20 that is here to spend a shit load more money. the food we ordered was their plated service 6 dishes in total. The food itself was pretty good and we were full right before the end hoping there wasn't anymore food coming out.

The waitress seemed like they need more training with customer relations because our table was neglected at most parts. If you want water you should call in ahead of time and order a pitcher for your table as it seems they import the water straight from Mount Seymour and have run to go get it. I wouldn't go back there id rather get pasta from Boston Pizza.

just go to Joeys in Burnaby

Submitted Thursday, November 29, 2012 - 7:58pm [Dine in]

My wife and I decided to give Sammys a try since it had been a few years. I'm not sure if it was just a bad night to go or its always that bad. We were seated quickly which was what we took as a good sign, on the way to the table we noticed it was pretty dead (two other tables). We also noticed how extremely uncomfortable the servers dress code made us feel, the tiny dresses were more than revealing and trashy. The drinks came to our table quickly but it went downhill from there. The music was comparable to that of a rave party and made us feel like club kids. It was in the irritating, loud and if we hadn't already ordered we would have left. We noticed they had also renovated and changed the menu and my wife and i agreed they seemed like they were attempting to be like Joeys in burnaby. Despite my food being quite tasty my wife's food was bland and it took forever for us to get it. The service was extremely slow and my wife's drink had not been refilled nor had mine. It was quite dead in there and there was absolutely no excuse for the poor service. After about 30 minutes of waiting I had to stand to wave down my waitress andaskills for a bill. No tip was given. We will absolutely not be returning. If I want an expensive meal I'll get it at Joe's where my server will be attentive and my food guaranteed to taste good.

Never Again
By Tonny of Burnaby (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, November 28, 2012 - 5:40pm [Dine in]

We have been going for years to Golden Boot. But the last straw has been laid and never again will me and my family and friends go there. The service is HORRID! The food is good but not good enough to endure the worst service I have come across. They have this little troll that is so arrogant and is obviously a family friend that they were forced to hire. She is rude and will ignore you or slam down the food unless you are a table she likes. So many times we are forced to stand at the door while the kitchen guys (including the owner) just stare and don't even acknowledge you. Then the waitresses make you wish you were sorry you came. We get shouted at, "YOU GOT RESERVATIONS?!" This place used to be crazy busy and they would be needed but not anymore. I wish he could see that if he got good service in the place would return to its previous splendor. Why would I pay to be at a place where they just don't care if I am there or not. Your loss Golden Boot!

The Only Thing I Missed About Ontario And It Followed Me Here!!!
By LadyQ of Coquitlam (12 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 26, 2012 - 1:43pm [Dine in]

I used to be a student in Ontario years ago and a friend suggested that we go to Cora's for breakfast. I had never heard of the place but I figured why not. And I discovered the greatest breakfast eatery ever.When I moved back to BC I made sure to go there one last time and I was a little sad that I'd never have an April 89 crepe again. And thus began numerous kitchen attempts to recreate them myself. (Didn't work. I wound up substituting liquors for water and made "boozy" crepes instead lol.)
A few months ago my husband and I were in Coquitlam and I saw the cheery yellow sun sign and insisted that we go for breakfast there.
Ok so the decor is a bit cheesy and it's noisy. But the food is worth it! People have been complaining about the prices; they are standard and are actually a great deal when you look at the mountains of fresh fruit that you're served here. Nearly every dish comes with a variety of fresh fruit (no canned fruit cocktail or wedge of old melon here) and anyone who has worked in the food industry will tell you that it's an excellent deal.
The dishes themselves are great. We usually opt for one savory item and one sweet so that we don't have to choose lol.
Really if you want a cheap breakfast then there's always IHOP or McDonalds. But if you're looking for something that is fairly healthy and of good quality then this is a very good choice.

Submitted Monday, November 19, 2012 - 9:20pm [Dine in]

This place has opened about 2 month now and I was there when it first opened and again couple days ago. When it first opened the place was renovated really nicely but the food and service was a little slow as usually just opened restaurants are, but when I was back couple days ago there was a huge party seeming about over 40 people at one side and other spots were almost all full. Seenig the huge party made me want to have my birthday party here. Anyways the service has gone incredibly great and the food was pretty quick to come the price is fairly decent. I had the las vegas roll and the chicken terriyaki and it was all so~ good. I would definitely come back again and make this place my regular.

Dishonest

Do not trust the owner. He is very dishonest and will try to take advantage of you. I regret ever having given this establishment my business.

The best thing offered are the cream puffs, if on the pricier side, but not enticing enough to overcome the complete lack of respect shown. Ambiance is typical sports bar/restaurant style.

You would be wise not to go.

I like the room and the service is always good but the food is just ok and, as with a lot of these similar themed places, overpriced. If the food is good then I don't mind the price b/c you are paying for the other amenities. I ordered the ahi tuni sandwich which is usually risky outside of a sushi grade restaurant. It was terrible. Fishy, smelly and costly. I love ahi and this was the worst ever. I only ate a bit and had a small stomach issue later. Sure it was just a mistake, and that can happen. I will, however, be more careful if and when I return.

Submitted Saturday, October 27, 2012 - 7:35am [Dine in]

Perhaps it was the Friday dinner hour or it was because we weren't ensconced away in a cozy little booth on the perimeter of the restaurant but we were hit on. Oh no my nightmare. Just a group of girls enjoying food, atmosphere and drinks and these guys approach us and start being sleazy acting cool. Some of us are single but we have more brains than be charmed by idiots that are probably oversized egos.

Back to my review. On to the menu. Prices are slightly inflated here for what it is, especially for some of their regular entrees, but overall it is pretty reasonable. Joey seems to have a salad lovers following and a friend had the Chicken Salad and really seemed to enjoy it. It looked pretty substantial but I'm not really a salad-for-an-entire-meal kind of girl.

As soon as I saw the Lobster and cheeese Sandwich, I started salivating. Oh yes please! I think there were Spring greens, cranberries, feta and a light dressing next to it (not 100% sure now). Good complement to the cheese. And oh what a cheese it was. Not cheap here though.

. I'll wipe the drool off my face now as I sit here recalling the savoury goodness of yesterday's dinner.

I've given this Joey a 4 stars... simply on the merit of this dinner (and the service was decent never mind the idiots). I can't speak for anything else on the menu but what I can say is that I will be returning for the variety and waitresses good service. In the near future.

best pizza ever
By Henian123 of coquiltam (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, October 23, 2012 - 2:33am [Delivery]

it tastes like a slice of melted cheese with a slight crisp to it. The cheese is so good. A little salty with a gooey satisfaction. The sauce is sometimes sweet or tart with a tomatoey taste. The 2 together are awesome dude. The crust is best when it is slightly buttery and soft/fluffy. So it's basically like eating the hot equivalent of a bagel with cream cheese and tomato. it's awesome

They need to improve on their customer service

They got my order wrong twice to date and it's always in their favour.
They seriously need someone to check the orders before handing it to the customers. The owner's wife is the only pleasant one to deal with. The rest of them are just so robotic.

The food is good but the service needs improving.

It was fine
By royalsam of burnaby (47 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, October 5, 2012 - 12:52pm [Dine in]

It's a new building and as such far more accommodating than the normal pho joint. Service was quick and pleasant. I had the spicey flank steak pho with a spring roll. Both were pretty good. Kind of the usual. Nothing outstanding. It came with the thick noodles which most may prefer as you would get a real feed. But they are just too heavy for my liking and lacked taste. I'll come again and design my own bowl.

Submitted Tuesday, October 2, 2012 - 1:29pm [Dine in]

I've tried to like the new owner's idea of a restaurant. Sorry, it's not working for me.
Where are the pleasant ladies that made lunch a pleasure? I don't care for all these buzzing hyper young girls who seem only bent on getting me sat down, fed and out of there. I miss the courteous, respectful, happy, previous staff.
Why are the portions so small? Somebody didn't complete their sushi chef diploma. Heh, we're in Vancouver. We all know what the right portion size is.
Rap music, blaring, pounding. I didn't see the owner so I assume it's the staff playing music to entertain themselves. It's Coquitlam, - rap hasn't quite taken off here yet.
I must be right. It's 12:30 noon and it's an empty restaurant.
Life is long. Sushi restaurants are many. I'll check back in a year and see how things go.
This used to be one of the best places in the area. What happened?

Matoi Sushi3025 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam
Worst service possible
By Whiteteeshirt of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, September 30, 2012 - 7:18pm [Dine in]

My experience at this Matoi restaurant was probably my worst restaurant experience ever. We made a reservation and was seated at a reasonable time. Then all hell broke loose.

At a fairly small restaurant with about 10 tables at most, we were ignored the entire time. The following events resulted in the first time my family and I walked out:
- No menus were provided to us
- After asking for menus, we were asked for them back as they did not have enough on hand
- A server spilled a tray full of dirty water on my wife's back and said server had no idea she did that
- 2 servers saw our hands raised for service and simply ignored us

The restaurant was half full on a Sunday evening but the serving staff were preoccupied with what we assume are take out orders or with some other meaningless tasks which out ranked the customers! We noticed other patrons of the restaurant getting restless and waiting around. A total of 4 servers were on duty and they all look like they were running around like chickens with their heads cut off!

Sadly, I can't provide a food recommendation because we didn't even get to the ordering phase. Walked out of there but the funny thing is that they probably didn't even realize it.....

Not bad food but terrible service.
By keeper14 of Port Moody (6 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, September 29, 2012 - 3:56pm [Dine in]

Customer service non existent. Our experience started with the waiter dropping two pints of beer at the table that we flat, you could tell by the appearance before having to taste them. They should never have been served. We had to take them to the server to send them back because he vanished after setting them down.

After that it was a chore to try to get more drinks. We had 6 folks at the table and we all had to wait a very long time before seeing our waiter to get service. We tried to get the attention of another waiter and he seemed appalled at having to serve another table. The entire staff just seemed miserable and you could tell by how they were working. Had the fellow who was serving our table been doing his job he would have been very happy with the tip our group usually leaves but he was pretty much invisible all night so got less than 10%. He shouldn't have gotten any tip but I just can't do that so hopefully he got the message seeing the small tip.

Won't be back any time soon.

We love Ricky's. Breakfast is served until 4. Prices are consistent with other breakfast places. Pancakes were fantastic. Two kinds of hashbrowns - shredded and the deep fried cubed ones. We both had sourdough toast -the pieces were very large and perfectly buttered. Breakfast meats were done perfectly. Any my Omlette was hot, well cooked with the cheese just perfect - a masterpiece., Not sure why i'd go anyhwere else around here for a sit down breakfast.

Horrified!!!!
By OriginalJay of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, September 23, 2012 - 5:38pm [Dine in]

First of all my first clue should have been that my fiancé and I were the only people there at
5pm on a Sunday...anyways though we would give it a chance-big mistake!!!
I ordered the halibut souvlaki which the server told my was amazing and always so fresh! Waited 45 minutes and the rice and potatoes were cold, halibut dry and overlooked on my first bite, then on my second bite I almost threw up it was so rotten and mushy and foul in odor!! This place is nasty!!! The waitress said she ate that for breakfast and hopes she doesn't get sick-bullshit you did that was the most disgusting thing I have ever eaten in my life, my fiancé could smell it and lost his appetite right away. She still charges us for his dish which he had a couple bites from and we left, absolutely awful experience we will never return!!!!! Also she was condescending when she refilled my Pepsi, asked me to finish up the last couple sips before she would take my glass and then made a joke that she was "cheap" I was like and I in kindergarten?!? Anyways I strongly caution if your feeling like Greek, run the other way from this place, I wouldn't be surprised if the good reviews are from people who work there trying to keep up the reputation as we were the only suckers to venture in there on a Sunday at dinner time! Still trying to get the foul rotten fish taste out of my mouth...BEWARE!!!

Just My Opinion
By Coquitlam of Coquitlam (Schoolhouse Street) (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, September 6, 2012 - 4:22pm [Dine in]

I am not one that usually takes the time to comment on a restaurant, good or bad, but maybe someone will read it and make a change or two. We go to ABC, mostly because my dad has a diet issues, and he can find something to eat off their menu.

Over the past 5 years, we have been steady customers, and most times there are little things that make you cringe. We don’t go as often now as we use too, and that there should tell you something.

The service, by far is their main problem, I not sure if it’s because of lack of staff working or just a total disorganization by the administrative staff. We have waited 20 plus minutes to be served at all to over an hour to receive a couple of burgers. The waitresses are usually friendly, but not always on top of their game.

The food, I had some nice meals and some real disappointments, again is it staff problem or just the quality of staff they employ.

The bill is always a shock! The quality of the food and service in the restaurant just does not justify the cost. I thank them they do promotions where you can get a percentage removed.

Every business has its bad days and should not be condemned for that reason, but when your customers and the other comments listed in your review column are all saying the same things then you have a problem.

This ABC Restaurant seems to be on a steady decline, even though I did enjoy my last meal there, and what a shame it would be to lose a “Family Style Restaurant”. Hopefully changes to improve it will happen in the near future.
