Amelia Cafe538 Sixth Street, New Westminster
It was just "ok"
By bigjim of Burnaby BC Canada (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 18, 2010 - 11:22am [Dine in]

ok, I wasn't expecting much when I ate here, but I did expect better than what I got. Don't get me wrong, nothing was horrible, but nothing was great either.The food was decent, though I think jim's cafe down the street serves better tasting food, and the service was so-so. The server seemed a bit pushy, seeming to expect me to order the second I sat down. I did like their style of hashbrowns though, which helped prop up the mediocre meal. I would probably only go again if other places nearby weren't open. Just didn't impress me.

Great cheap eats

I'm a big guy that likes good food, and the food at this place was great. I stopped in for a meal with a friend and really enjoyed it. They didn't skimp on portions and everything was very flavorful (I especially liked their wonton soup and kung pao beef, definitely in the top few places I've had chinese food in the lowermainland. Service was quick and friendly. The establishment itself was clean and nice. I gave it a 5 for value because of how good the food was, portion size, and price. I felt it was exceptional value to get such a good meal (and lots of it) for very reasonable prices. It is now on my list of great "cheap eats".

Love this place, house rolls are amazing, and if you do take out there pretty quick. I like the chicken don and the tempura's are made right here.I will be returning and all my friends enjoyed the takeout as well. Next time your ordering out, I suggest not ordering pizza but sushi from the place, thank you and keep it up.

Thought I would give it a try, another corporate coffee shop with no flavour. Tried the latte, not sure if they know what there doing. Food is stale as well as the deserts, oh well thought i would give it a try, I think never again tho. You would think the money they put into this place would give it some class. My suggestion is to make your own food, and train the barista's on how to steam milk, wosre than starbucks.

Stopped in here with a couple of friends for dinner. There were a few other diners, but it was less than half full - I think the reviewer who said this place is a hidden gem is right. So no delay in seating, we were brought tea right away and had our order taken promptly. We had some spring rolls for appetizers, then a few other dishes we all shared, some chow mein, shrimp fried rice, prawns, and dry garlic ribs. We all agreed it was great. Very tasty food here which ended up costing us around $10 per person. I've paid a lot higher prices for chinese food which wasn't even close to as good as this was. Another table ordered some vietnamese dishes, not sure what, but it smelled great, so I plan to try something from the vietnamese choices next time.

With really good food at low prices, we'd have expected it to be busier, so maybe people don't think it will be as good as it is when you look at the place - it is kind of plain looking, not bad, just plain is all. I'll take a place that serves delicious food, reasonably priced, over a place where i'm paying more for a fancier tablecloth anyday.

I tried this place because i heard it was the best donair place in New West from a friend. I'm happy to say i was not disappointed. If i had another thumb i'd give it three thumbs up. The person serving was very friendly and humorous. The writing on the wall keeps you busy while he prepares your juicy succulent donairs. Very good, fresh ingredients. No complaints other than one small one. I bit into a small pebble in my lamb donair. I hope the washing of the vegetables will be more thorough in the future. All in all, good donairs!

Not bad overall

Went to this place for dinner, loved the prawn tempura, yam tempura was slightly undercooked, but overall is was good. The service was really nice, they do take care of you. I would say as far as ambience, I think I would change the music, really loud pop music that doesn't really suit the place and vibe. My suggestion, make your Yam tempura bigger and better, and change the music to a more relaxing feel.

Yuk, don't eat here, and there coffee isn't good either.

Wow how could you possibly get a sandwich and coffee all wrong. Whatever you do , don't eat here, dry, stale, no sauce, the size of your palm and really old tasting meat, the barista's have no clue how to make a latte or americano, not hard people, I suggest you learn on you tube. The place is really nice, but thats it. Had an Americano or canadiano - tasted like hot water and food colouring, my suggestion is stop bringing in frozen wraps and panini's and start doing them yourself, oh and the muffin tasted like it sat there for 2 weeks, one bite tossed it in the garbage, come on guys your a coffee shop, muffins and coffee should be delicious not stomache wrenching, thanks but no thanks, you shouldn't serve that food, someone might get sick.

Flying under the radar, a hidden gem
By unholywarrior of New Westminister BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, November 9, 2010 - 2:56pm [Dine in]

This place used to be the wonton house on 6th in New West, but awhile back it changed owners and became Pho Chung Nam (Chinese and Vietnamese food). My wife and I went to give it a try and both really loved it. The people who run the restaurant are very friendly, the prices were great, and the food was fantastic. I got a pork fried rice with lemon chicken combo and its about the best I've had anywhere, was a nice large portion as well, and coast under $7.00. Hands down the best fried rice around. My wife had Vietnamese food, a lemon grass pork with rice dish and enjoyed that very much. the ambiance is just average, it is just a little restaurant, no real bells or whistles, just a clean and friendly atmosphere.

This is one of those places that just looks pretty average from the outside, but is well worth trying as it really has awesome food for great prices. Everyone I know that has tried the place now has loved it and have gone more than once.

My wife and I eat there regularly - with the previous, and new owners. Never had a bad meal; an interesting and diversified menue, with imaginative "specials." Prices are very reasonable. The service is their strong point = excellent staff, always pleasant and knowledgeable - smartly turned-out too. The place is always clean. All-in-all a credit to new Westminster. A fine family restaurant.

My family and I really enjoy their Mexican wrap, I have had it many times and it’s always excellent. It’s a nice cafe with a patio outside, and puzzles and games available inside. I recommend it, and I will be back. Disappointingly I have gone their on a weekday at lunch time to find it closed with no obvious explanation.

Awesome place
By hiNotes of Burnaby (6 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, November 5, 2010 - 4:10pm [Dine in]

Came to New Westminster for a meeting and was told to try the hide out cafe for lunch, man that was the best wrap I ever had and the soup was genuis, I had the black bean baja wrap that was grilled to perfection, and the authentic Irish stew made with real lamb anf guiness the way it should be, wow. I like to eat out alot and nothing in the lower mainland tastes this good. I talked to chef about his soups and he does them all from scratch with no msg's (great to know) and his own stocks, not packaged stuff,, the baja was something else, I'm really surprised their not more expensive for what you get, the wraps weigh like a pound and they are filling, I may have the half combo next time cause i was full, wish they were downtown i would be there every day.
I love the ambience too, its not over zealous and trying to look rich, just some good people giving you a place to eat and rustic looking, beautiful floor by the way. I will bring my friends next time for sure. thanks.

Not returning.
By msargent of New West (27 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, November 4, 2010 - 1:34pm [Dine in]

I went here close to lunch time by myself on a weekday. I was told by the girl at the counter that I wasn't allowed to sit at a table and that I had to sit at the counter facing the window because I was there by myself and she didn't want me taking up a table in case other people came. Really? And just to point out, the tables that I wasn't allowed to sit at never got filled.

My panni was alright, like the poster below me said, it was premade and they just heated it up.

The food was pretty good, a bit pricey, but the bad attitude is why I won't be coming here again.

The Waffle House Mystery
By danndann of New Westminster BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 1, 2010 - 7:11pm [Dine in]

The mystery has been solved new owners have taken over the place and sadly the difference is tragic and hard not to see.Now it is just another "place" delivering the standard fair no waffling about this.My wife ordered poached eggs and the waffles my 3 year old had the waffles.....i had the "special" oh yes ."eggs benny"probably the worst ever and the wait was also 'special".Now believe me im not a fussy eater I dont write reviews and I will eat anything......even as in this case if I regret it later.One thin slice of ham usually you get one on each english muffin.In this case the english muffins had no butter...maybe that was extra............... m the eggs were normal I think... but the hollandiase sauce was the weirdest color I have ever seen.pouch fair I assume.cheap yet effective.A waffle is a waffle lets be honest if you want to save money buy a waffle iron.
It is with great sadness I admit defeat goodbye "waffle house" hello "waffle PLACE".

I don't eat here a lot - a few times a year, but I've never been disappointed. The sushi is really nice, and has always been inventive and fresh - much better than the sushi I've eaten in other restaurants.

When we come with our young kids, they make an extra effort to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Good burgers but get rid of those gangly plants hanging over our heads
By Binky of Coquitlam (32 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, October 26, 2010 - 11:24pm [Dine in]

Came for burgers with a friend Oct. 26/10. Only one other table at 5:00 pm but the place filled up by the time we were leaving. We both ordered the #5 BBQ burger with cheese, bacon and mushrooms. The mushrooms actually couldn't have been sliced any thinner...almost see through. The burger was flavourful and quite messy so use your extra napkins. One of us had the wedge fries and the other the onion rings so we could share them. I was disappointed in the onion rings as they were too oily, no onion flavour and they were thinly battered instead of breaded. They almost seemed like they were commercial frozen ones. The wedge fries weren't very plentiful, but they were fine. These burgers were 13.50. I would return again in the future and perhaps try something new. Pir male server was pleasamt. I felt there could be a good cleaning and a general tossing out of the dozens of hanging plant baskets over your head...kind of weird that.

Stefanos Restaurant315 Columbia St, New Westminster
Beautiful Place, Enjoyable Evening
By jimbobby of Vancouver (Commercial Drive) (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, October 23, 2010 - 5:31pm [Dine in]

I attended a work function at Stefanos and was blown away. They are starting to put up their famous Christmas decorations and the place looks amazing. I have never seen it when its fully decked out but I read the article from the Vancouver Sun covering Stefanos and it looks so beautiful.

The service was friendly and surprisingly efficient - given how packed the place was. The roast lamb was to die for and I only heard positive comments from my co-workers on their respective meals. The band was super - and it struck me how few places have dine and dance these days. It was so much fun!!!

The prices were beyond reasonable given how huge the servings were. I highly recommend that everyone check it out for themselves - particularly to see the beautiful decore - it is not to be missed. If you love Christmas - you will LOVE it! It is the perfect place to host a party.

Shang Noodle House350 Gifford Street, New Westminster
Horrible Service!
By Iron Chef of new west minister (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, October 22, 2010 - 9:22pm [Dine in]

My husband and i come here quite often, we are a regular, until their service went down hill. Recently i got a back injury so when i went to Shang Noodle House i ask them if i can sit at the booth area as it has more of a support to my back and more comfortable seating rather than sitting in those hard wooden chairs. The server that greeted me said NO! I was surprise as in the restaurant there was only 1 other table eating. I was not impress and said why not, she said to me the booths are for seating of 4 people. I told her it's not comfortable to sit in the wooden chairs with no cushion whatsoever on your bum and the back and the wooden chair seating is also for 4 people as there are 4 chairs per table! She pretty much ignore me and just left the menus at this table with the wooden chairs. So instead of walking to that table, i still went to sit at the booth. She saw me and then started to gossip and tell all her fellow waitresses as it was pretty obvious she was talking about me, since they all were giving me and my husband dirty looks and whispering. So finally that waitress approach me with a fake smile asking me if i was ready to order. I told her i want to speak to her manager. She has the nerve to send another SO CALL JOE WAITRESS to tell me she's the manager. I told her no i want to speak to a manager. So then finally one of the waitresses went to grab the manager. This restaurant is link to Kirin next door, so they grab one of the supervisors next door to talk to me. When i talk to the supervisor he agree with me that customers are allow to sit anywhere they want especially when the restaurant is empty and their seatings are ALL 4 per seat!. But pretty he was useless too, cuz he wasn't the owner nor the manager, so after the supervisor apoligize, i decide to leave.

Restaurants like this should hire better servers and not have them make a bad impression on the restaurant.

Absolutey DISGUSTING food...ended up in the trash!
By LBoogie of New Westminster (4 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, October 21, 2010 - 5:38pm [Delivery]

OK. I love Chinese food. I have had a LOT of Chinese food. This was by far the most disgusting place I have ever ordered from, and I'm not talking I only eat chicken feet and 'authentic' dishes...I like some almond chicken and deep fried prawns once in awhile, as long as it's GOOD. This place had the WORST chow mein, that was so minimally 'cooked' it still smelled like the plastic bag the noodles had been taken out of. The sweet and sour pork that my husband usually loves from (Lee Yuen, Surrey), was laden with thick goopy disgusting sauce that had tiny minefields of 'meat' filled with gristle...ABSOLUTELY Repulsive! DO NOT eat here. Do not waste your money, go and get a burger from Wendy's. OR go get some GOOD Chinese food, from Flamingo House on Cambie, or Lee Yuen in Surrey. GROSS. Threw everything out. GARBAGE.

Went for brunch on a nice sunny Sunday. The place is cute and done up in blue and white. The service started out good, but quickly went to poor. We waited for an hour for our food and coffee refills were hard to come by.
The food was really good, but I guess I will try and come here when it first opens so that I'm not starving by the time I get my food.
We went for a nice walk on the Quay boardwalk afterwards, this restuarant is in a great location.
