Good enough for dinner with my wife
By frankie_power of New West (3 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 6:38pm [Dine in]

This place is meh but I wasnt much disappointed. It was noisy but its cheap and this was a wife dinner. First of all, the service was slow (although we got our order -OK) and not much to look at as it took us about 28 minutes to get our pizzas which we ordered . Paying $ for what appears to be more bread and sauce is just crazy unless it is this cheap... We are not going to a steak house and this isnt a fate so more haste would have been nice. I have been to many restaurants and in my opinion it's a 2 star operation. I find it very strange how people are very new to reviewing giving this place five stars... Come on.. be real.

I've eaten at Burger Heaven many times over the last couple of years and they continue to turn out really first rate burgers. The beef is not overworked and there's always a good crust on the patty from proper frying. Salads have always been crisp and fresh. As a burger joint, it's one of the best in the Lower Mainland.

I used to eat here about 10 years ago and LOVED the food. Went there tonight with my husband and our baby. Let me just start out by saying I was annoyed right from the start. I went to the washroom to change the baby and there was no change table and nowhere to change her but the floor of the washroom. I *hate* this. This one thing will make me not want to come back.
My dinner was not bad (ravioli) but my husband said his was overcooked. Dinner came so fast there was no way they made it to order. This was the only thing that came quickly. I had ordered garlic bread with my dinner and they didn't bring it until we were finished eating. Even though it wasn't busy (only about 3 or 4 other tables on a Friday night) our waiter took about 10 mins to bring the dessert menu after he offered one, cleaning off an empty table first etc. Most annoying is that we had an entertainment coupon and forgot to use it. Because of the service, no change table and only so/so food, we won't be back again either. :(

I hate salads and I hate dieting but the Greek Salad with Chicken at The Extreme Pita is to die for.
If your New Years Resolution is to lose weight you have to give this a try.
This salad is something special.
I really could eat this one everyday and like I said I hate salads.

Ki Sushi31 8th St, New Westminster
Absolutely TERRIBLE Service!!
By jnols of New Westminster BC (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, January 1, 2011 - 10:05pm [Dine in]

Was my first time to this place and the service was the absolute worst I have ever had at a sushi restaurant in my life! My girlfriend and I were seated and then left there for a solid 15 minutes before anyone came near us. We were just about to get up and leave but a waitress finally approached us. We decided to just put our full order in right away as we thought it would take forever to get our food. What I found funny was my sushi came about 1 minute after i ordered(definitely pre-made sushi). There was no way the sushi chef made it that fast. Also a couple of our items in our order were forgotten but once I told the waitress she finally brought them. I overheard the table next to us saying they had 3 things missing from there order as well.
The sushi itself was pretty good but not any better than any other place in New West I've tried. My girlfriend and I were attracted to try this place by the number of awards they have supposedly won in New West for best sushi place. I am VERY surprised they have won this many yearly awards. We will definitely stick to eating from King Sushi in New West.

Typical sportsbar in Vancouver. Actually it's the worst concept period. The food is among the worst I have ever tasted. typical meatheads everywhere staring at women. Sure, go if you want to be a piece of meat. How does one do this to a hamburger? The atmosphere was not high end and the service was mediocre. I will never go back even if invited. Go if you like to watch blood sports

I keep giving this place chance after chance but I'm always let down by the service. I've probably been here six or seven times this year and each time its been a bad experience. I have never been acknowledged under ten minutes after taking a seat and my cup is alwaysleft empty. I practically have to beg to get any service at this joint. Servers are stuck up and unfriendly. I have to ask for a menu and I have to wave someone down to take my order. Food service is incredibly slow. The only saving grace is the food which is reasonably solid. Still, its not enough for me to want to return after so many bad nights. I am not interested in spending money somewhere that ruins my mood.

Be warned: It is unspectacular. But you should come anyway because it's the only place around here with a menu dedicated to Taiwanese dishes. This should mean nothing to you unless you've spent time in Taiwan and miss it. Pork chops pound thin, then dipped in sweet potato starch and fried, colorful posterboard cutouts as wall decor, staff whom you suspect live above the restaurant or at least seem too "at home" and make no pretense about looking busy.

Boathouse Restaurant, The900 Quayside Dr, New Westminster
Dinner out
By TimOH of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 5:26pm [Dine in]

First time here but overall, disappointing. All window tables are situated below and as a result were cold - most people we saw at these tables were wearing jackets. Menu options were limited - only 2 kinds of salads are offered. When we asked if they had a garden salad they asked to us to describe what this was and although they did prepare one for us, it had a disappointing outcome. Very few alternative options to their garlic mashed potatoes (which were aweful).

Service was very slow and when we asked later on when we would be serviced our server told us that a large group was finishing up and we would be served soon but why didn't they mention this earlier???

The view across the river was nice but really, this was the only pleasant part of this experience. We will definitely not be going back and we recommend others to stay away!

Best Sushi in New West
By Harriet of New Westminster BC (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, December 17, 2010 - 12:15pm [Take-out]

Always the same friendly staff that welcome you upon arrival and thank you on you way out.

Sushi is the best in New West that I've tried and the price is the most reasonable.

I live nearby so I do pick up once a week. The price allows me to afford it! Only takes 15 minutes for pick up to be ready. The restaurant is usually pretty full with all ages of customers.

Current magazines and the daily newspaper available if you show up to order for take out. A nice flat screen tv with the hockey game on or a kids show if there are any toddlers in the store.

First, the weird stuff. The house is fronted by what I guess is a Sri Lankan couple. But, once you get over the incongruence and immerse yourself in the romantic atmosphere and the lilting German, the love affair begins. This small piece of Germanic Europe in New West serves great schnitzel and rouladen and beer. Full of geriatric Germans and a few intrepid youngin's looking to get in on the next food craze. Loved the Teutonic Maiden who served us beer. Fun and plenty.

Burger Heaven Restaurant77 10th Street, New Westminster
Heaven Can Wait
By Sir Eat a Lot of north vancouver BC (14 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 11:38am [Dine in]

Large pub styled burgers ranging from the basic, for $11 to $16, through to the ridiculous with eight patties at $29. We came with a buy one get one free (up to a $10 value) coupon widely available in the New West Recorder (Hence the 4 rating). I had the breakfast burger topped with a fried egg and paid $2 more for onion rings and wondered if the waitress ate half of them while walking it over to our table. The beef had an off taste which reminded me of frozen meat thawed quickly in a microwave. There was also an unpleasant taste to the fixings but I couldn't quite pinpoint it. Perhaps it was just an off day. I loved the decor with old photos of patrons from years past with their mullets, beach-themed tees, unironic moustaches and aviator sunglasses plastered all over the walls and under the glass top of tables. The waitress was part of this local institution and seemed to know everyone, including those in our party. Enjoyed the sincere, relaxed interaction.

Visited this location and was very excited cuz it looked cool from the outside. I spent 40 bucks for 3 dishes. Wow!!a little steep! I was quickly disappointed when I started to eat a little in the car. The flavors were horrible and it was not hot at all! Nice decor and concept but the food was too expensive and was totally manufactured. The food was not good at all and there is definately no value! Good luck Wok Box...Stay in alberta!

Not impressed with this restaurant

We ate upstairs in the group dining area. There were plastic tablecloths, the lighting was uncomfortably glaring and the menu was printed on plain white paper. Totally low class. The music was too loud to talk over, and the food was mediocre. The cook couldn't manage to grill a "rare" steak after two tries. I wouldn't return to eat there. The location is good and it looks inviting from the outside.

Submitted Saturday, December 11, 2010 - 5:52am [Dine in]

I have tried eating here one other time and was not impressed, but went back to try again. When my salad arrived, it was not the salad i had expected. when I told the server she offered to bring me a different salad, but she insisted that the salad that I had was the "right" salad. When my pasta arrived ( canelonni) it was luke warm at best and sause had developed a skin. I was with friends and as I had already complained about the salad, I didn't mention my pasta. I was not able to eat it all because it was not to my liking, however the server never came and asked if we were happy with our food either (nor did she offer parm or pepper). My friends steak was disgusting and she spit most of it into her napkin. When she told the server, the response was a sharp "didn't you order it medium rare?"
I don't drink but my friend was asking to order some drinks and her requests annoyed the server(s), and the response given was something about it being an italian restaurant that serves wine. That was the WEIRDEST thing I have ever heard. Never have I been to a restaurant that doesn't want to "serve" the customer. The whole experience was horrible. Save your time and money, go somewhere else!

Okonomi Sushi26 4th Street, Unit A, New Westminster
pink rice
By upstairs of New Westminster (18 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, December 10, 2010 - 8:19pm [Dine in]

Ended up here as a last minute random choice. Large space with tables and chairs and also leather sofas (for lounging and eating, I suppose). I checked one out and my feet didn't reach the ground, so perhaps this would be more comfortable for taller people.

The food is very generous. The nigiri sushi pieces were almost bizarrely large. The bento box was quite substantial. And the rice is pink, apparently from fruit ot vegetable juice, but at least it didn't seem to affect the flavour. But I didn't find it particularly appetizing to look at. A lot of their speciality maki are extremely busy with sauces galore, including cheese sauces, and "oven rolls". Braver souls than I will have to try them.

The prices for volume were fine, the regular maki were pretty reasonable, and the seaweed salad was generous for $2.50. There was a pretty broad selection on the menu, not just sushi.

I probably wouldn't go out of my way to go back, but for hungry, big eaters who aren't afraid of unusual sauces on their sushi... have at 'er.

Personally, I would give this place a 2.5 not a 3, but it was "solid" and not "mediocre" which was the next choice down, just not to my taste preference.

Although I do not frequent any restaurants these days i have had breakfast at Angelina's several times over the past 4.5 years. I enjoy it especially in the summer, outside, gazing at the river sitting in the sun with a cup of the good coffee. When sitting outside one can be forgotten but it is fine as the owners are such lovely people it does not mattter to me. I enjoy the poached eggs and potatoes and am very pleased on each occasion to have broken my fast there.

Good Vietnamese Pho
By victory66 of Burnaby (35 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, November 28, 2010 - 9:59pm [Dine in]

So went here with a couple of friends for a late Sunday night dinner. I had decided that I wanted to try the Pho as I have been looking for a decent Pho restaurant in New Westminster that is close to my neighbourhood. I found that the service was good but nothing spectacular. We placed our orders, including sharing the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. One friend had the Vietnamese Special combo meal, one friend had the Chicken & Broccoli on steamed rice and I had the Beef Ball & Steak Pho. All of the food was very good and came out very quickly. I really enjoyed the Pho and it came with a plate with lots of fresh bean sprouts, fresh lime and basil. The combo meal appeared to be really good as well with lots of of variety. We had lots of good hot tea and the pot was refilled at our request without any problems. But towards the end, the service declined as the workers all started to have their own dinner. Other than this, the food was tasty and really good value. I will definitely be back to try some of their other Vietnamese dishes.

Ole Ole Mexican Deli831 12th Street, New Westminster
Delicious Dishes, Perfect Prices
By flavour_saver of north burnaby, bc (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, November 26, 2010 - 12:29am [Dine in]

Ole Ole is a great place to get very some very tasty home style Mexican dishes at very reasonable prices. I'm aghast that anyone would say it's too expensive - the most expensive thing on the menu is $10! It's not a place you'll find foodies ooohing over presentation and hoping to be seen, but it is what your parents might have affectionately called a hole-in-the-wall. Just walk in and sit anywhere you like, the owner, a warm and friendly man, will greet you with a smile and the special of the day.

Tonight our table had: a plate of Nachos, 1 chicken flautas, 2 pork in a green chili sauce (today's special), 1 carnitas, and a quesadilla for the kid. The food arrived quickly and piping hot, and the owner even troubled himself to bring the kids meal first so the world's slowest eater might finish by the time we did. Everyone was delighted with their meal. We also had a couple coffees and hot chocolates, while the coffee was good the hot chocolate was outstanding - definitely order yourself a hot chocolate!

There are only one or two people working there at any time so you wouldn't want to take a large group - it would just be unreasonable to expect everyone's meal to be ready at the same time. I found it a little chilly and did keep my jacket on through dinner but I'm willing to assign at least some of the problem to the unbelievably cold winter we're experiencing.

I will absolutely return and highly recommend the restaurant to others. If you want hearty authentic Mexican food, you want Ole Ole.
