Went here twice now, loved the lamb dishes. Not too salty, juicy meat, pleasant spices on the whole dish, fair sized portions. Overall very nice Greek food. I recommend trying this place out for Greek food. The decor is ok, don't remember the music that was playing. The hostess is a very friendly lady, made us feel comfortable. Our waitress though seemed a little bored with her job, or just not interested. Forgot our wine order, but later apologized for that. I wasn't too put off by it all.
I am somewhat hesitant to post a review for Poco Ocean because I fear it will be more difficult to get a reservation than it already is. However, a restaurant this good deserves to be recognized.
We had been looking for a new Chinese restaurant to try in the Port Coquitlam area as we have become increasing disappointed with Hon’s. Looking at the reviews on this site, and checking the inspection history at Fraser Health, we decided to give Poco Ocean a try.
Especially for dinner you must make a reservation. The restaurant seats no more than 50 to 60 people. It is across the street from Hon’s at the farthest and most remote section of the Poco Place Mall at Westwood Street and Lougheed Highway in Port Coquitlam. This is the most unassuming restaurant you will go to.
We have been there three times and they are consistent and great. When you make your reservation, please be patient as English is not spoken well. However, do not let that deter you from trying this gem as the ladies waiting tables are very friendly and they want you to enjoy your visit. Also, do not let the specials written on the wall preventing you from trying some awesome food. Pick what you would like from the menus, then ask your server to suggest something (pick a protein chicken, beef, fish, pork) from the specials. You will not be disappointed.
One caution I would provide is that this is a small operation. They do a lunch and dinner service, closing at 2:00 PM and re-opening at 5:30 PM. There is the chef, and two serving staff. Service will appear to be slow (i.e. getting seated, getting your order taken, and paying the bill), but once your order is in the food is served in good order. Make sure you bring cash as they do not accept credit or debit cards. Two people having, soup, four items, and a beer each will run you about $55.00 to $60.00.
We will not be returning to Hon’s anytime soon! We have our new home for Chinese food at Poco Ocean.
I highly reccomend this place. This has been the best indian food I have ever tasted. I am in love with the Mixed Vegetables (hot), Palak Paneer, and Egg Plant Bhartha. The Namaste Naan bread is extreamy tasty as well. The service is very good and sometimes I get free naan in my to go orders and other times I have been given deals on prices because of frequent visits. Over all this is my favourite place to enjoy food at the moment. I find when you order out, the portion you get is much more than enough. I have yet to be dissapointed.
Wah Wing serves up consistently good food with attentive service with fair prices.
We eat in or take out at least once every two weeks and are never disappointed with the food or service. They are quick and the selection offers something for everyone. We usually get about 4 dishes and steamed rice between the two of us and always have enough left over for lunch the next day. Avg. dishes cost between $11 - $12.95.
Worth a visit!
I just think that almost $14 for a simple pannekoek is a lot to spend for breakfast. Its a pancake with a filling and no sides. Pretty bland nothing special... I ordered a side of hashbrowns but they're pretty average nothing special. I would prefer them spiced or to have some sort of fun dipping sauce but they don't have anything to offer. As well whats up with the eggs benedict being served on a cracker??!? Well a cracker like thing, I thought they were supposed to be on something sort of soft like a english muffin.... thats a bit odd isn't it? and $4 for juice thats a bit outrageous!!
The restaraunt is very clean though and the waitresses and staff are really pleasant and happy and nice! Great service and I like eating at a clean establishment!
we just had dim sum today and it was really bad. the steamed prawn dumpling taste awful, it was sooooooo not fresh and it smells bad. i think if u buy it in T&T, the frozen ones are much better. the fried skin bean curd mushroom taste like rubber. chix feet and beef tripes are OK. we had fried squids, too and it's the best among others that we ordered. we live in poco and saw this place couple of times was so crowded, so we had to try. the service was OK. we dont care about the ambiance all we know that whenever there's a restaurant full of customers it must be good well at least we found out that's not always true.
The service is great, people very friendly, authentic, nice ambiance. The curry dishes are just to die for! They are so delicious, my favourates are butter chicken and palak paneer. They are so good, almost addictive! The portions are not huge, although more fits in those metal bowls than you realize.
Mrs. C and I have been regular diners at DG for many years. This time we went with the usual dinner gang plus one esteemed guest. The restaurant was reasonably clean (except maybe the w/c), and simply decorated. Service was good throughout the meal, and the servers were friendly as usual.
We had beef with gai lan, salty/spicy deep fried squid, ma po tofu, curry beef brisket, roasted chicken, and sweet and sour pork, accompanied by lots of steamed rice. All were great, but the curry beef was awesome. About as good as at Mui Yuen. As for value, it was less than 12 bucks each and we had lots of leftovers, despite the fact that two teenagers were at the table.
A good spot for family dining.
Come here for the best pizza on southside Port Coquitlam(even including Megabite)
Hard to believe it, but, if times are hard you don't go out for dinner with your family of 4 and have 2 beers. The pizza's great, worth every penny. They have deals everyday. Goto Mc'Donalds and sneak in your liqour if you can't afford a great dinner with drinks.
I've been reading the reviews on dinehere for many years and have always meant to do my own reviews. I didn't actually get around to doing it until I had a hankering for the food at Deer Garden and really wanted to write a review after eating there.
This is the typical Chinese restaurant, wave the servers down, dinners come with free soup, rice and dessert. What makes the value "outstanding" to me are the food portions, and the fact that every dish we've tried is consistently good. Our family favourites are the sweet and sour pork ( to the chagrin of my very Asian parents :) the eggs and prawns, and of course their curry beef brisket. In fact, there is a funny story that I can recall about a year ago, this older Chinese lady came into the restaurant with her ceramic casserole dish and lid, told the server she wanted the dish filled with curry beef brisket as she was going to a pot luck, and she was going to tell people that she made the dish at home herself! Hubby kept on whispering to me that she was "cheating", as I tried to ssshh him lest she give him the "dim mak" aka death look, that all older Asian ladies have perfected!
Compared to the other authentic places such as Kirin, I think Deer Garden has pretty good value and food.
