I had been going to this place for years at an average of 4 times a month, until they expanded.
Their food was amazing, service and value however plumited when they expanded and the ambiance wasn't becomes irrelevant when you're waiting 1.5 hours for your food to finally reach everyone at the table. The rolls where also practically falling apart when they had arrived. The waitress had also forgotten items we were specificly there for (my wife and I were addicted to the beef tetakki). When we finally got our bill after what seemed like forever, there were a few items we hadn't ordered and we were charged for items we ordered but hadn't received. We decided to give it another shot but with an order for pick up, that was when we drew the line, it was as if the chef had absolutely NO pride in his work. The rolls were a mess, the sashimi just didn't taste right and we had to throw it out. The service again was TERRIBLE, they told us 15minutes, we always arrive 20minutes after placing our order to ensure they have time. We ended up waiting there another 15 for our food and then the lady who charged us for it took the liberty of adding the tip to the debit machine herself! At that point my wife demanded it be returned and as far as us returning, it will never happen.
I have lived in New Westminster for over a year and have been going to ki sushi almost every week. Out of the hundreds of visits only a few were unpleasant, the food is always good and cheep but the service can be pretty bad sometimes, But over all it is definitely a place worth checking out
DO NOT ORDER!
Not only did the food take over an hour to arrive, it came overdue and expired!
Completely not following the health regulations.
I thought I'd give it a try after reading mixed reviews myself, but now I know!
I'm warning those thinking about trying this the first time!
You don't want to jepardize your family's health.
Sick & Disgusted!
I will return here over and over for their great bread! He uses the right ingredients and stays away from preservatives and anything that should not be in bread!! All of the baking I have tried is great and the other products that line this store help to round out the pantry. Try his bread and you will not be disappointed.
The staff is bad and the food worse! The food tasted like day old bread and the people serving it were angry and not happy. Every staff member there were like robot and not at all in tune with the customer. The drinks were not at all to par and all the drinks were definitly not at all one shot but watered down with soda. We only went there for friends party but ended up having miserable time with staff and owner. Dont go ever for any reason!
I was completely horrified by the actions of the staff at this location. Not once, but two weekends in a row. I am not sure who trained them but clearly they did not do a good job. Tim Hortons has always been a friendly environment, even when it can get quite chaotic and busy. For the record it was not busy at this location at all. The staff were literally yelling at eachother pushing orders, name calling, and shoved my order out the window to me. No Hi good morning, or have a nice day. It took everything in me not to go back in there and give them a peice of my mind. I'm assuming the lady in the black shirt was a supervisor or manager, well she was the worst out of the bunch. I've never seen such unprofessionalism. The following weekend I went there again, my mistake. I must have repeated my order 3 times at the window, and was confident she still didn't get it right. I asked her to repeat my order at the window, with irritation in her voice she did, and of course missed half my order. After she fixed it she handed me the debit machine, and leaned out the window an watched me as used the machine, why? I don't know, I'm sure there's other things she could have been doing like preparing my coffee that tasted like pure sugar, or my daughters scolding hot chocolate when I asked for half milk. Get it together! Instead of paying attention to my pin you should have been doing your job, just as i had to get to work im sure the line up of people behind me had somewhere else to be as well: Unfortuntely there's not many tim Hortons in new west, so I may have to put up with these people for the time being, I just hope that someone that has some sort of authority reads these reviews and does something about their staff.
Me and a friend went to Stefano's to check it as we heard it was pretty good Greek Food. The waitress sat us down then walked away without asking us what we would like to drink. 20 minutes later she came back asked what we would like to drink then took our order. we got our drinks 15 minutes after ordering what we wanted and then waited 1 HOUR for our meal. I've never waited more then 30 minutes for a meal at a restaurant I was blown away and not to mention it was dead in there ! When we got our food it wasn't hot it was warm I always order the Lamb Souvlaki and I was just not impressed at all....Because of poor service and Food I did not leave a tip for the waitress even though she came right out and said it when separating our bills, Who does that ?? very unprofessional...I'll never go back there and I will not recommend that place to anyone !
I was heading home in Queensborough and thought it would be nice to not cook and catch the end of the hockey game. i had not even had a chance to take my jacket off and sit down before the drink that I ordered was on the table. I quickly decided on the special of 2 Halibut and fries and sat down to enjoy some food, drink and hockey. Jason was quick to find the next game once the first one ended. I appreciate the service and the atmosphere at Frankie G's, I don't get there too often but when I do I think I should have been back sooner. Try it you will like it.
We have has this restaurant's 'All You Can Eat' many times in the past and it has always been excellent.
But we were there a couple of weeks ago for our favourite meal and it was such a disappointment.
The batter, usually crisp and tasty, was soggy and flat, and fell off the fish before you could eat it. The fish, usually fresh and delicious, was tasteless as if previously frozen. Perhaps because the fish used has been changed from basa to pollock(so their sign at the door said).
We definitely will never go back to this restaurant for their 'All You Can Eat' special.
Recently ate here with my girlfriend on a thursday evening, and left with little to be desired. The food was lame, the music was lame, the atmosphere was...well, you get the idea. The servers spent half the time chatting to each other, and we waited for 30 minutes for our food to come. But before that our appetizers of 'riblets' looked as unappetizing as they tasted; like little turd formations. The appearance of this pub could have potential if it was kept up, which is clearly wasn't.
Hands down, won't be returning in this life time.
The 4 of us decided to try someplace north of the river and opted for BC's first capital.
Gino's blew us away, although it appears like a nice small place, the greeting we got and the food that we ordered guaranteed our return for future visits.
we ordered the roast lamb, a pizza and the fish and chips. you know it's good food when there was no talking for 15 minutes during our meal. The waiter was very pleasant and knowledgable and helped answer all of our questions and make substitutions.
the fish and chips were some of the best that i've had in the lower mainland. not a fan of the heavy batter/greasy ones from pajos, i was pleasantly surprised by what they offered here.
and the fries! oh the fries, nice and crisp and seemed to have some sort of garlic seasoning to them.
all in all the pizza looked great, and the lamb was more than enough, that we ended up taking more than half home for lunches the next day.
it's been around for a few years, and clearly demonstrates quality over quantity.
Always wanted to try this cute little mexican restaurant. Disappointed because there was very little of the meat/cheese in the dishes we ordered. Loads of tasty authentic mexican sauces but I practically had to dig to find any meat. The ambiance and service was great. Would not go back.
My husband and I came here for dinner and not very impressed.
We heard there was live music and dancing on Fridays and Saturday's. To some extent there was, however
The band only played for very short periods. The wrong food came to our table and when our food finaly did come, it was somewhat cold as it looked like it had been sitting for a while!The food is by far average, and the service was terribly slow (perhaps because they very obviously very understaffed!) when we left, the young manager had said good night to us and tried to thank us for coming. We obliged and had mention that our food and service was not the greatest. After he tried to apologize and ask us to come back again for a better experience, we said maybe (being polite), as he was clearly drunk and slurring when he was speaking! No thanks! Again, better places to eat the this place...
I've been to all boathouse restaurants, and it's our favorite restaurant over the last 20 years, HOWEVER, this new west location sucks in service! AVOID this location, Port Moody is the best in both food and service. We were having hard time getting hold of the server whole time during our dinner and couldn't reserve the table by the window because they say it's only for party of up to 4 people. The service ruined our dinner for all 6 of us on my mom's birthday. Foods were not compatible to other locations either. They need to clean the grill well before cooking, the over cooked prawn had dirty BBQ grill taste on it.
walking in we were met with a smiling face of a young lady just old enough to serve our drinks, too bad she carried them in her hands and not on a serving tray.
we were dissapointed with the appy a Singapore style calamari...they forgot the calamari! Lots of pineapples and tomato oozing in a starchy sauce.
I was again dissapointed with my main only because the menu stated roasted cashews,they were bulk unsalted peanuts.My friend had the Sirloin with asparagus,it was ok.
Not once were we asked about any part of our dinner, so while paying the waitress at the front of the house I let her and the boss/mgr/owner not sure he did not say :( know that we were dissapointed and not returning.
Sorry there are better Malaysian restaurants out there.
Our regular Oriental restaurant was closed for a wedding so we stumbled on the Ki by accident - it is one of four in this area and we flipped a coin.
Very small food, good service though specially for an Oriental joint but excellent value at $15 each. Small portions so count on that when you calculate value.
The Singapore noodles (I guess that is what they are called) are good and slurpy.
It seems to be very popular with the local Chinese and it filled up quickly after we arrived.
The Ki will now become our regular oriental restaurant
My husband and I have been going to this pub for about 10 years. The manager is great but the staff always is changing. The one review about mixed drinks is right. Always inconsistant and also the glasses are always dirty. I had to ask for 3 in a row the first one had lipstick on it the second a hair and dirt in the 3rd. We usually drink from bottles here. The food was ok nut now they put some sort of weird cole slaw that is just slapped together on the plate with the prime rib. Attitude with the waitress has to go maybe that is why there is such high turn over. They also have a stupid rule about subbing the coleslaw for another side or salad it is not allowed.
For the atmosphere I love sitting by the fire it is a very comfortable feeling.
We saw the sign, 30% off on daily specials many times and decided to check it out. Daily specials for that day were Stanley Park roll and grilled scallop. We also ordered a few items from the menu. The rolls were big and delicious. The sushi rice is pink because they use combination of beet, red cabbage and blue berry juice to sweeten the rice instead of sugar. We are happy with both the food and the service. It was during the week so the restaurant was not too busy and the server was quite nice and informative. We are looking forward to try some of the unique Okonomi specials again.
Went in for my moms birthday this past Saturday with a party of about 20, everyone enjoyed their food and the service was outstanding. The Ambiance was great and we all especially enjoyed the live band playing at the time. All in all the experience was a great one, the only downside to it all was the parking.....which is not really the best no matter where you go to in New West, but other then that I highly recommend this restaurant.
Greek food is not on our list of top 5 favorite cuisines, I doubt it is even on our top 10, but whenever we feel like roast lamb Yianni's is the only place for us. For $14.95 you get a huge chunk of slow roasted, falling off the bone, sweetly caramelized, perfectly spiced roast lamb - you cut into it with your knife and when you slowly navigate the fork to put a little piece in your already watering mouth, you know this is the roast lamb you have been waiting for all your life! Okay, I know I am laying it on thick but it really is that good. The plate also includes rice, potato, Greek salad with bread and tzatziki on the side. I know $14.95 may seem a bit steep, but it's not only the huge portions that make this is a good value but also the fact that it's damn tasty and, for the 100th time, lamb done right.
Besides the lamb, we have tried the souvlaki and the BBQ chicken. The souvlaki is pretty decent, but the BBQ chicken is almost as terrible as the lamb is sensational. Yes, that's pretty bad. We understand that this is Greek not Southern BBQ chicken, so while we did not expect the meat to fall off the bone, we also did not expect it to cling on to the bone for dear life. Tough, dry and just plain awful.
Another thing that draws us to this place is the service. So far we have been served by four different servers and they have all been a pleasure: polite, smiling and efficient. Also the food comes out fast. The minimum tip we leave there is 15% - 20% (more on holidays). The restaurant itself is nice, clean and cozy - everything is blue and white with pictures of Greece on the walls and Greek music playing on the speaker. I am not a big fan of songs playing in restaurants, no matter in what language - but it's not so loud or annoying that it spoils the meal.
So the bottom line - Amazing Roast Lamb & Awesome Service (at least for us).
