To my surprise, this little hole in the way is quite alright! Although the food is a bit pricey for the amount you get, the flavours are absolutely rich and delicious. I recommend the Gaeng Dang (red curry with chicken). That's my must have.
The ambience is pretty cool too. It kind of reminded me of a Buddha Bar when we stepped in the first time. The waiter/owner/husband of the chef is also really nice and personable. This is my favorite Thai restaurant right now.
We ordered take out, the the food was above average with hearty portions and lower pricing the nearby places...
Although the places appears fairly clean, the ambiance is that of a little hole in the wall. No decor, cheap tables and chairs, not a place one would like to dine in... They have an old TV there that the family watches in between orders... So I wouldn't suggest dining in here...
Take out on the other hand... Was a VERY good value... The portions were large, the spices and quality was also very high! We ordered the combo dinner for 2 plus a breaded almond chicken and we were impressed! We asked for the sweent and sour sauce on the side, and they did it with a smile... Most other places charge $1 or so (which we would have paid) but they didn't charge for it which was a nice touch.
The chop suey was fresh with lot's of beef, the chow mein was tasty and LARGE, the sweet and sour pork used decent cuts of pork and wasn't all fatty like other lower priced places... The almond chicken had a hint of a sweet flavour in the batter which was very nice...
We WILL order from here again... I think we found our new "regular" place... Good find for take out!
I have been going to Kisoya for almost a decade. The sushi is top notch. The Sushi & Sashimi Box is the best box around and the Caterpillar Rolls are a must. The only thing that I wasn't a fan of was the Chicken Teriyaki, but that was on two occasions a couple years ago, they might have changed it since then.
The food is pricey, but it is definitely worth it based on the quality of the fish.
I have been going here for years, and they have the beast donair I have ever had. They have 2 white sauces and they are dynamite! Lamb, Beef, Chicken, Falafel are piled deep into pita with a bunch veggie topping. This is a big donair, so make sure to get a few extra napkins!
They ding you an extra buck for the feta and don't mention the extra cost. Forgivable for a great donair at a great price.
This little place has saved me more than a few nights. When I work late and get the call from home telling me I am on my own for dinner, I make the call on my way home and 5 minutes later a piping hot bowl of Pho soup is waiting for me. It's a really great broth, and incredible value, $6 for a huge bowl. Add a couple spring rolls for the kids and I am good to go!
Just a great local family run place.
I've been coming to this and only this donair place for about 3 years.
They're beef donair is ok, but the chicken and lamb are fab.
4 sauces(i suggest all) and extra add-on's if your up for it like fried mushrooms or onions. And the offer fresh feta on top. Yikes.
Been to many donair places in many local cities and over the years this has been the most consistant. Only complaint is the line gets in the way when your just grabbing a quick lunch to go.
Maybe not the best place to take someone on a dinner date but to sit down for a quick lunch it's pretty good.
You will find good service at these little cafe's but not like this.
Food comes quicker then you'd think. Bigger preportions then you'd get at other chain breakfast places. For a little greasy spoon restaurant it does an amazing job.
Maybe change up the coffee though. Last time it tasted fresh but maybe not such a good blend.
Three adults out for a late breakfast could only rack up a $25 bill.
My family and I dropped in on Sunday night. I could expect all the greek food are about the same. This one is a bit different. it's not crowded and outdated like other ones. The statues and the black table clothe are adding a classy feeling to it. We received calamari on the house and ordered the arni pisto aand prawn/shrimp entresses. The portion is generous on the lamb shoudler which are extremely tasty. The only thing I would recommend is the waiting time. I waited 30 mins for the entree since I ordered, and they are on the pricy side. otherwise, I would definitely come back again.
My wife and I first tried Sparta when it was still Empire Greek Taverna some 3 years ago, and we have regularly enjoyed their 'Calamari For 2' special ever since, a generous portion of crispy calamari the could seemingly feed up to 4 people and for a very low price. We are always greeted by warm, friendly servers and always leave very satisfied with the service, portions and even moreso by the final bill.
The restaurant itself is quite cozy with a very mediterranean atmosphere accented by blue and white walls with framed pictures and assorted plants - and candlelit tables at night. We are always promptly seated and have never found the restaurant to be packed, which helps even more to give it a more romantic, intimate dining experience. My wife and I are regulars for the 'Calamari For 2' but we also love their other Greek appetizers, baked lasagna and their Diary World 5-cheese pizza. We have never yet been disappointed with the quality of the food we receive.
In sum, an intimate restaurant with great food, excellent service, authentic atmosphere, and incredible value.
This Earl's impressed me...
The service was just one notch below 5 star... Not typical of my previous visits to other Earls... The only thing they lacked was the re-pouring of my wine.
The server was REALLY attentive but not annoying.. She was knowledgeable and suggestive without being pushy...
We had a martini each to start followed by a bottle of wine. Each were fairly priced (wine priced slightly over double retail which is fair).
We had Chicken taco's to start and they were delicious.
My wife had a Mediterranean Pasta with prawns, and I had the half rack of ribs and chicken... They gladly substituted garlic mashed and veggies for me as I didn't feel like warm potato salad and coleslaw. Both entrees were fantastic! They nailed the "casual dining" both for prices and food quality.
Dessert was New York Cheesecake w/blue berries and it was perfect!
We WILL return...
I've found it difficult to find quality sashimi in the area, but I've finally found the tastiest sashimi in the area-- if that's your thing!
Sushi Shelter has an excellent chef. His food is not only delicious but also arranged in an artsy manner.
Service was wonderful, waitress was very attentive and cheerful-- even though I was only waiting for take-out.
I always go here once/year with my entertainment book coupon. and we usually get chicken and lamb souvlaki. The pita bread and salad come first, which is a nice starter. The food is very filling, especially with the rice and pita.
They gave me an extra Tzatziki for free, which was nice. They only give you one Tzatziki with the pita and that is supposed to be for two meals. I love the stuff, so always need more. Not excessivly garlicy, so its alright in my book.
I would go without the coupon, but I have so many coupons for greek restaurants, I dont need to go back without one.
Definately a great place for a meal.
Staff are very friendly even though limited. I went on a Thursday night and it was packed. The Calamari is a very good deal, for less than $10 it serves 2-3 people for an appy. Dinner I had the prawns alfredo it was very good, and the prawns are very fresh.
Loves the Greek statues and lighting.
Unfortunately its located in a very small street and maybe difficult to find unless youknow the area, and they are only open for dinners.
we've been driving by this place for months and joking that we should try it as the place from the outside looks so dodgy. Then we checked out the other reviews here and also a friend recommended it. We had takeout last night. When we opened the bags, the rice and pad thai were decent sizes comparable to the normal amount you always receive from takeout at other place. However the main dishes were in the two cup plastic containers like you get at the bulk food store and not even full. we were worried that we wouldn't have enough food. Food was very tasty..pineapple/tumeric rice, cashew chicken, ginger pork, yellow curry chicken and the one with triple meat layering, but there wasn't enough considering we paid $80 for it.
I totally disagree with the previous review. I dropped in one day when I went shopping at Save-On based on a friend's recommendations. The place looks really different from other traditional Jap restaurant in tri-cities. Simple, elegant and relaxing even though it's pretty small. The server is probably one of the most friendly one I've had in years. They were prompt and professional which made me totally comfortable for a first time comer. Food! Ah! PERFECTO. I thought these dishes I order would only appear in Downtown area. The chef is such an artist. the sauce around the fusion rolls - torpedo, snoopy, SOS and such, they are not just pretty , they are also tasty. What surprised me was that the garnishes around the dishes are pretty edible.
Price. pretty cheap for Japanese food. My whole family of 4 spent around 30 bucks walking out totally satisfied and stuffed.
Port Coquitlam 's got a new star. At least for me and all my friends in Port Coquitlam. Now we got a favorite place to hang out.
Like the first review said, you would truly sense a feeling of joy after you visit this place. Not kidding. You've got to try.
Oh and they shouted when you come in and out. really funny.
I've been moving to Port Coquitlam just over a year. Read the newspaper about this place that was voted #1. On Sunday morning, I went with my sons around 1pm. Little place but packed. Really friendly service. The food and service is attentive and fast. Food was really home-cooking which morelike comfort food. (That's what I wanted too). The ambience was outdated but the food definitely made it up. The value was ok for a small restaurant like this, but acceptable. Good place for a quick breakfast/lunch. Like the feeling the staff services the customers. Nice pllace definitely gonna be returning.
First of all, the food is great! Very traditional greasy spoon style food, but very delicious.
The service is fine, but the waiters don't speak english very well, so bring a cantonese friend...
Portions are BIGGG, and ambiance is not that good...
If your looking for good food that is cheap with large portions and don't care for ambiance, go here
Since my first review I have returned to the King Mongolian Grill twice more and am most happy to report that this restaurant has improved.
The sauces have been greatly improved upon in that now there is real flavor to them, more than on my first visit, but you still have to add several spoonfuls of each to achieve the desired taste.
On my last two visits the waitress brought my food to the table so that I did not have to stand and wait for it to cook.
The floor has been cleaned and is now in a reasonable state of cleanliness. This is highly salutary. The washroom is also well maintained.
I will now be a regular customer of the King Mongolian Grill Restaurant as its food, service and ambiance are now excellent, which makes the value quotient much higher.
A little hole in the wall but a real find!
Have been to many Indian resturants in the tri-cities and this one is by far my favorite. Have been to the cozy and clean "Namaste" 4 times and have left satisfied on all occasions.
The menu is extensive and the food (especially the Eggplant Bhartha, vegetable samosas and the butter chicken) is piping hot and mouthwatering.
Servers are friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. Their recommendations have been spot on!
Portion sizes are of good value and having leftovers the next day allow the sauce to sink in more. If possible, even a more savoury meal!
There's nothing like this place in Poco at least for the ambiance. While the fish and chips are good, they're not the best. The grilled cheese for kids was kind of odd. But - They offer veggies burgers and DOGS. I can have a dog with fired onions and watch a baseball game on a warm summer evening, I can walk, take my kids to the park etc. It's a great interactive park and therefore a perfect location. There's the full Pajos menu as well and ice cream. Just skip the coffee - it's paint stripper. All in all THANKS Pajos for being there!
