Nice little place on a quiet Sunday afternoon
By jettastorm00 of Coquitlam, BC (23 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 23, 2012 - 4:35pm [Dine in]

My sister and I had seen this place over a year ago, but it was only recently that I'd finally gone to eat there. Was really quiet, but nice. Decor is tasteful and even the bathroom was nicely decorated. The woman behind the counter was really nice and took my order. My 3 year old daughter was napping when we got there, so it was nice that it was just us and she was able to lie down on the bench they had at one of the tables.

We had the ginataang baka (beef and veggies cooked in coconut with a touch of spice) and caldereta (beef and veggies in a spicey tomatoe sauce). I had ordered the garlic rice, but after explaining my allergies, we went with the steamed rice. The caldereta was good, but the the ginataang baka was utterly amazing. Even my incredibly picky daughter devoured it. The portions are fairly large, so those two things were enough for our family and another meal after.

The service was good, and I will be back!

Food Court Has Better Chinese Food
By ChatterBox of Vancouver (13 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 8:28pm [Take-out]

I was sick recently and I was really craving for some good ol' comfort food in the form of a nice hot bowl of congee. It was late and I didn't feel like driving very far to get take out so against my better judgement, I went to Hon's. I ordered what could only be the most basic can't-go-wrong style of congee (salty pork with century old egg congee, equivalent to wonton noodles in terms of popularity) and to my dismay, they managed to royally mess that up. The ingredients in congee are supposed to be cooked with the rice so that the flavours are all absorbed during the process. My congee on the other hand, it was blatantly obvious that they had a big pot of plain congee and had just thrown the cooked ingredients in there, hence, making the congee completely bland. For a Chinese restaurant with a reputable name that has boasted decent food for years and years, this was embarrassing! We've had less than average meals here before, but this was definitely the last time for me. I'm sorry to say, you can probably find food court Chinese food that would taste better.

Pasta Polo2754 Barnet Hwy, Coquitlam
Perplexed

Submitted Sunday, May 20, 2012 - 1:54pm [Dine in]

This is a fantastic restaurant ! My family and I have been loving this gem of a restaurant for many years now and I am perplexed at some of these reviews. Pasta Polo is a busy, popular spot. The staff are warm and welcoming, professional and attentive.The food is flavorful and everything is made fresh daily in house.The menu is huge so even the pickiest of eaters will find something they like.They even cater to allergies, ciliac options,vegetarian options and cater to substitutions.Now how many restaurants will do any of these?I dine out often so I can tell you not many restaurants cater to their customers needs like Pasta Polo Coquitlam does.Obviously I am not alone in my opinion as this is a very busy place and much loved in the community.The owner is very generous and sponsors numerous community events, schools, and non profit community services.Perhaps some of the previous reviewers do not dine out often or maybe they are simply out of their minds! Love this place!

Ding Hao Noodles House2773 Barnet Highway, #4, Coquitlam
Filling Lunch
By pliversidge of Coquitlam (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, May 17, 2012 - 1:25pm [Dine in]

My truck was being worked on and I couldn't be bothered to go elsewhere so I ended up having a lunch at Ding Hao. It was a great lunchtime getaway. I'd been here once before so I knew it was clean and modern inside and that it was pretty popular as it's a little off the beaten path. I asked the waiter for some recommendations and settled for dumplings as a starter and a dry noodle dish as a main course, as I didn't fancy the popular soups. To round things off, I finished with a Matcha Green Tea drink.

The food was very good. It was fresh and cooked perfectly, presented well and for most noodle places it was surprisingly upmarket. They had a few other lunchtime regulars pop in while I was there and I'd say they were doing quite well for a Thursday lunchtime. They were also attracting a lot of non-Asians which is also a good sign as they're catering for typical and atypical customers.

Overall it was a very pleasant lunch and I'd certainly be tempted to come back and try something else on the menu -- always a little daunting to an irregular noodler like myself. I'd trust the staff though and go with their recommendations, they seemed very patient and more than happy to explain things thoroughly.

I Love Sushi228 Schoolhouse St, #3, Coquitlam
My favorite sushi place
By Yummy_Vancouver1 of Vancouver (9 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, May 16, 2012 - 6:22am [Dine in]

I have been going here for 3 years and have always had consistently great sushi and great service. Most of the girls here are EXTREMELY friendly, always smiling every time I am there - and on some weeks that has been 2 to 3 times. When my son was a baby even the chef came out of the kitchen to talk to him which I thought was really nice. They are very busy but service has always been fast. They have decorated the walls with photos of patrons which is kind of neat.

I like there sushi better than other restaurants because I find that the rice is better than most - not too sticky. The yam tempura roll has a lot of deep orange yam and the avocado roll is always the freshest avocado there is. The prices are a bit higher than anywhere I have been but that is offset by the complimentary edemame they give for dine-in guests or the yam roll for take-out. That was too be honest the thing that got me hooked in the first place. For about a year (2010/11 ish) when I went in I was rarely getting the yam cone with my take-out meals even on large orders so my visits slowed a bit but this last 6 months I have received it every time, yay! If the complimentary snack was a gaurantee I would rate value 4.5.

Could take it or leave it
By Ireviewyou of Suburbs (8 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 4, 2012 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

Food 6/10 Beef dip was on a fresh bun, shaved beef piled high and was flavourful, fries seemed homemade but were very tasteless and almost tasted baked although they were not. Iced tea was so weak it looked like water, had to return it .. seemed obviously wrong, but waitress said she couldnt bring me another as the manager wasnt there? Had a diet coke instead. Took much longer than it should have to get my food based on how busy the place was.

Service 5/10 At a Friday lunch when they were not too too busy, it was barely adequate. Had to ask for a menu, the iced tea issue, slow service, no quality check.

Value 7/10 $14.50 including tax and tip was very fair, would have scored higher if not for the above issues.

Ambiance 6/10 In what looks to be an old house, different areas with different vibes which I like, but the dining area I chose was ridiculously dark and the table was wobbly.

bad beef dip
By carinaycc of North Vancouver (14 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 30, 2012 - 2:28pm [Dine in]

We were supposed to go to White Spot for lunch on a saturday, however, my friend took the wrong turn, and we ended up at Joey's. Which was ok, because as we dined, more and more families were coming in with their toddlers (my friends say that white spot is always packed on the weekends and this was probably their back up plan).

Having said that, the staff was very friendly, but dissappeared for a good amount of time when we finished out meal and wanted to pay. we had to go hunt them down because our toddlers were getting antsy after their meals.

I had ordered a beef dip with fries. The beef tasted old and flavourless and lacked seasoning. It came on a ciabatta bread, which was too big for the amount of beef they gave. I would definatly not order it again.

My husband ordered their california chicken burger, a MUCH better choice. it was delicious and had the right kick with the spicy mayo and arugula.

And we ordered a cream of mushroom soup (chantrelle mushroom) for our 21 month old son to share with his 16 months old friend, whom both loved it. It was definatly homemade and very tasty.

Would probably not go back just because it's a bit pricy for the inconsistency of the food that they serve.

Chef's day off?
By Ireviewyou of Suburbs (8 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 8:24pm [Dine in]

After stopping in for a burger a few days ago, and giving Woody's a generally favourable review, I stopped by today for another as I was in the area. What a difference. After sitting down and having several waitresses walk by me, speaking to and looking after tables right next to me, FINALLY someone asks if I've been helped.

Ordered the Triple Cheese, Mushroom, Chipotle Burger and this time it was terrible. Different buns than last time, dry and stale so that it broke apart in my hands. Cheese not melted, not a hint of chipotle, Fries were cold and tasteless, burger patty was dry and overcooked.

No quality check from the waitress until well after I was done.

A brutal effort. What a difference a few days makes.

Average pub
By Ireviewyou of Suburbs (8 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, April 29, 2012 - 9:12am [Dine in]

Food 7/10 Had a basic cheeseburger with fries. It was as simple as you can get in a burger,, bought in patty, bought in fries, plain bun but prepared perfectly for what it was. Hot, juicy, cheese melted, fries hot. Not gourmet but good for what it was

Service 7/10 Attentive staff on a busy night, although a couple moved next to me because they were having difficulty flagging down anyone where they were previously seated. My only issue is that after ordering and waiting a reasonable 10 minutes, I was told that the food would be a little longer because they had a fundraiser in the back room and were backed up in the kitchen. Fair enough, I appreciate the heads up ... HOWEVER, someone seated near me whom was obviously a regular because his girlfriend showed up and was given a beer without having to order because they knew what she drank, ordered well after me and got his food well before me. Clearly, put his order above mine, not impressed

Value 8/10 Burger and fries about $10, can't complain

Ambiance 7/10 Typical busy pub, the commotion coming from the fundraiser in the back was mildly annoying

Awful
By MISS K of Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, April 28, 2012 - 11:17pm [Delivery]

Tonight I had a craving for wonton soup so, I decided to call up Hon's and also get a few other things with delivery. I remembered that I had ordered from them once before and the food seemed decent. The person taking the order could not decipher a 0 from a 4 (slight language barrier, but no big deal) in our phone number and after many attempts to clarify, we gave up thinking that at least they had our apartment number correct. After an hour or so, we called to inquire about our food.. a woman apologized and said they had tried to reach us - they had the buzzer number wrong as well. When the food finally arrived, to my dismay the sauteed beans in garlic were obviously canned. $10 FOR CANNED BEANS! I was so upset, because they are usually my favourite and after waiting so long thinking about them, it was very disappointing to receive gelatinous garbage. The war wonton soup we got had a strange aftertaste and very few wontons. I am actually pretty mad about wasting my money.

Would NOT Recommend!!
By RogerRabbit24 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 2:49pm [Dine in]

Had to pick up my friend in Coquitlam and thought we drop by this place to eat, it looked alright from the outside and the reviews seems alright, can't be that bad right? WRONG!

The food was overly salty, it seemed like I was eating plain salt, the food was luke-warm and even cold. I talked to the person working there and they said it was "hot" when I took it out and just left. We took a few bites of everything and just got the bill, over half of the food was still on the plate and they didn't even ask why or make it up to us. Paid the bill and head to the washroom, the entire restaurant was dirty and what made me lose it was seeing bugs crawling around the restaurant as I was heading to the washroom. YUCK!

Not recommending anyone this place, I'd tell them to drive to Pho Hoa in Coquitlam center instead of eating at this SH*TTY place!

Great place for Pizza in Coquitlam
By BigAnthony of North Burnaby (106 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, April 25, 2012 - 11:25am [Dine in]

I was told about this place by a friend so I came a few times to try it out.
1st time.. stopped in for lunch. Cool little place, they have some nice pasta options. It was not busy there and service was good. I ordered one of their tortellini dishes. It was good but nothing spectacular. I needed to come back and order something else to be sure..
2nd time.. I came with my wife for dinner. We each ordered a pizza. I had the Caprese - $15 & she had the Maranello - $15. Both pizzas were awesome! Thin crust and delicious. Our waitress got busy during dinner and service became slow. She did her best though, it wasn't her fault. For dessert we shared a tiramisu - $7 and it was also yummy.
Overall this is a cool little place, has a casual relaxed feel inside. I will be back next time I am in the mood for a good pizza and I will be telling my friends about it.
My rating is based on both meals so if I were to only have eaten the pizza here I would have rated the food a 4 instead of 3.

Church's Chicken555 North Road, #5, Coquitlam
crunchy batter but not seasoned enough
By pete66 of coquitlam (56 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, April 23, 2012 - 8:33pm [Take-out]

We had a 2 piece chicken dinner on the weekend (drumstick & thigh). Took it home and the thighs were a decent size, it was still hot, fairly juicy with a thick crispy crunchy batter, the way we like it. We didn't want spicey, just regular but found the chicken skin was under seasoned say compared to KFC. The chicken pieces are larger than KFC's, although I've found the KFC at the Metrotown location had good size thighs. The fries on the other hand were pale, limp but we ate them all anyway. They could have used a few more minutes of cooking. If they put a bit more spices to the batter, it would make such a huge difference.

Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 1:13pm [Dine in]

We used to go to the old John B across the street so many years ago. When they moved we really never got into frequenting the new digs except on occasion. I met some friends there for lunch one weekday and enjoyed the general atmosphere. The menu was expansive with every thing you could want. Perhaps this was the problem. The server seemed rushed and was non attentive. The food came fairly quickly. No one cared too much for any of it. It was ok but certainly nothing special and not cheap. The yam fries were easily the worst ever. That can happen though as they're hard to do right. All in all I may give it a try again as this could have been a one off but I won't hurry to do so.

Not too bad
By mapleridgefoodie of Maple Ridge (6 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, April 3, 2012 - 2:31pm [Dine in]

Went to start using up a gift card, sat at the bar one recent afternoon. Interesting place, almost feels as if they decided to upgrade a dive of a place, got 1/2 way and ran out of money. Some apsects are quite attractive, some remind me of a bar from the 80's. Same with the clients a mix of old barfly regulars and pretty people.

The bargirl was very pleasant (and cute) and did a fine job looking after me. Had the wing special, and no disrespect the the previous reviewer, I thought they were just fine for 20 cents. C'mon, it's 20 cents! I DID find it weird it costs more to have them tossed in sauce as opposed the sauce on the side, and the Thai sauce I did have was not remotely Thai flavoured, but other then that they were fine.

$2.80 for a warm iced tea ... $1 for refills (not told that when I was offered a refill which drives me nuts).

I'd probably stop by again if I happened to be right there, but wouldnt make a special trip.

Never again

Submitted Monday, April 2, 2012 - 10:45am [Delivery]

My boyfriend and I have ordered delivery from this location twice. Both times one or both of us (depending on whether our orders were similar or not) were violently ill. The first time I contacted them to let them know and see if I could be reimbursed. They refused to reimburse me, which peeved me a little but is understandable, but when I passed on my concerns about the food quality/sanitation I was treated dismissively. We gave them one more chance months later and ordered again, and once again were violently ill. I can only assume they haven't improved their preparation, storage or sanitation practices. I will never be eating from this restaurant again.

Pearl Fever is the best BBT chain in the Lower Mainland
By theschuay86 of Vancouver (32 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, March 30, 2012 - 11:27am [Dine in]

By far the champion of Bubble Tea in the GVRD. The quality, price, service and atmosphere is all above par. You can find BBT places that beats Pearl Fever in one of these categories, but never overall.

Quality is consistent, they always are looking for ways to improve and love feedback. It is not the best there is in terms of quality, but for the price it is worth it.

Service is the best in Vancouver. I only found one place that has better service. Friendly and quick. It is hard to find a quicker and more efficient team. It reminds me of a downtown club bar team. That fast.

Value is great. Prices have gone up all over the place and these guys still are one of the lower priced places.

Ambiance is great, especially after the renovations. A cool place to chill if it isn't too busy. The Pearl Fever Product has a coolness to it. "Evolved Tea Experience". The motto I feel suits them.

The UBC Pearl Fever is better, but this place is not far behind.
