Went there for lunch one day. As soon as we went in through the door, we were hit by an overwhelming smell of pizza (there's a pizza place right next door). A little strange to smell pizza at a Japanese restaurant!
It was only the two of us, but they gave us a little room, which I thought was kind of nice. The downside of it was that it took us a while to get their attention when we were ready to place our order.
We ordered the advertised special with 20pcs of sushi for $6.95, but we later found out that the special wasn't so "special" since the 20 pcs consists of california roll and cucumber roll, whereas in the regular menu you can get california roll and tuna roll for the same price, which we thought was definitely a better deal than the so-called "special".
The sushi was mediocre at best, somewhat flavourless, although everything was fairly reasonably priced. The softshell crab roll wasn't too bad, it was nice and crunchy, but their chopped scallop roll was quite strange because they added cucumbers and the chopped scallop was quite tasteless.
Probably won't be going back there since there are a number of Japanese places in the area.
Oh, and did I mention that our room was right beside their stereo, which they had on LOUD some pop station. Made us felt like we were sitting at a pub.
We love this place. It's the only restaurant where we feel special and at home. Yeah, it's a tad on the $$ side but not really compared to a lot of other pizza places(not dominoes or panago) BUT real pizza places.
A larege cheese pizza for $16 feeds my 2 kids 2 meals. $4 a meal - not bad. A LARGE PIZZA feeds me and hubby and some for his lunch next day $26 - so about $9 a meal - but the toppings are top quality. THE perogy pizza is crazy good - you feel like you had perogies AND pizza for dinner. I love the atmosphere in the place - it's fun, the kids love playing by the fireplace and the wheel chair ramp - when no wheel chairs are using it. Once I heard some crabby old lady complain about the kids playing and was told it was a FAMILY restaurant not a pub by the staff!! Sweet.
The Godfather is really good as is the Shrimp Pesto supreme(that could be the best pizza on the planet). You have to like thin crust thought to like this place - if you like fried dough balls in your tummy go to Pizza hut.
It's a little bakery located just under Me n' Eds in downtown PoCo. Not much of an ambiance to speak of since their cakes and cupcakes are more meant for take-out.
The lady that was there was really friendly. She greeted us as soon as we walked in and didn't hesitate to tell us about the different cupcake flavours they had. We decided to get one of each. They were all very delicious, moist on the inside and not too sweet. Even the icing on top was at the right sweetness. I especially loved the raspberry flavour with whirls of raspberry in the cream cheese icing on top. I could eat 10 of those!!
Thoroughly enjoyed each and every flavour, will definitely go back for more!
This is my second time visiting this location. Ambiance was good, typical pizza joint with a slight "bar" feel.
It took a while for anyone to notice that we were standing there although there was only 1 other table occupied. Service was quite slow and almost non-existent at times. We had to ask twice to get our water glasses refilled.
Pizzas were always good, though I found both times the pizzas were a little too salty for my taste and the crust slightly overdone. The flavours were good and the combinations were more creative than your typical Pepperoni or Hawaiian. I really enjoyed their smoked salmon & roasted garlic and their chicken pesto supreme. I've also tried their thai chicken, which I found was the most interesting combination of all, with crispy thai noodles and what tasted like the chinese "hoi sin" sauce. Would be perfect if it wasn't so salty.
We found the pizzas to be on the pricey side. We went there for lunch on a weekday to use our Entertainment coupon, but I'm not sure if we'll go there without the 2 for 1 coupon.
Went to Sango for dinner, the restaurant is trying hard to be a fine dining establishment, but the ambiance is confused. White table cloth, plastic tea pot; live music, big screen tv with baseball playing. The live music was great, I wish that the musician had been there the entire time, but when we arrived, the music was a weird mix of asian pop and celine dion playing a couple notches too loud.
We ordered Roti to start, vegetarian green curry and vegetarian pad thai.
The Roti was ok, the sauce was tasty but the roti itself was on the greasy side.
The green curry was the best food of the night, perfect blend of spicy and creamy.
The pad thai was not the best, a bit too vinegary and not hot by the time we got it.
Because it was a Friday night and the restaurant had put out a groupon that day, the place was super busy and I think they were understaffed because of it. Service was slow once the place got busy.
We also got charged for tea, putting our bill at $37. In general I think that was a bit steep, we got fair sized portions, but the food wasnt great so I cant justify spending that much on mediocre food.
I would go back, but I would stick to the green curry for a sure win.
We decided to give the Treehouse Pub another chance after many years of being very poor.I went with 5 guys from our hockey team and first of all we noticed that it was newly renovated and looked good.The servers were very cute and very friendly, We shared a few appies and I liked the Nachos and hot prawns. After that I had a burger that I very much enjoyed. I would have to say we will be back and the food was very good.
We were looking for somewhere to use an Entertainment book coupon,Glad we chose the Arms. We both had the steak special and it was really great, cooked to perfection and a nice cut of meat. Excellent value for 11 bucks.couldn't use the coupon but the food, drinks & value was so good we didn't mind. The fish & chips that went to the next table looked awesome. The Arms has been renovated since our last visit a few years ago, and we found it a big improvement, our waitress was friendly and service was great! Could pass on the smokers milling about the front of the building and this Pub is definitely geared towards an older hardworking crowd. All in all it was an enjoyable experience and great for people watching!
Food is always good quality Service is better than almost any around friendly just needs a coat of Paint building is much but the food and service make up for it. Anytime I'm in the area I pop in especially on weekends for the Smorg. Their take out and delivery is also very good I have never had a bad meal from them.
McDonalds is Mcdonalds right? Not when you count in this one. I have had to go there 3 times now as I am doing some business in a building right near there. I have seriously seen few er grosser Mcds in my life anywhere in the world. It's like walking into your own little ghetto.
First of all the place is ALWAYS filthy. THere are napkins, food, wrappers and other un indentified garbage on the floor. It's like they don't even clean up during the day at all. I have had ketchup empty, seen, Happy meal toy displays empty and cracked and I was only brave enought to attemp the potty once -ew.
Enjoy the show from the patrons that consist mostly of crack and meth heads. Lots of screaming dirty kids as well. Where's the truant officer. It is a really small space too. The food is the same as any McDs but even the staff is a little slower here. Run......
Went on a weekday night. Food was good. Good selection, and reasonable prices. Halibut burger was really good, caesar salad - store bought variety. Not great, nothing to write home about. Sliders were good but charged extra for garlic mayo.
Decent but not memorable wine list and small cocktail menu. I don't understand why these places don't print and sell the specials and cocktails. Menu said martinis were on special, but no where did it list any martinis or describe them. I would have ordered one it if somewhere it sounded good. So I just ordered a plain old glass of wine.
Blonde waitress sucked and was rude. I would not sit in her section again. Had to ask for a CLEAN glass with each wine order. They just try to pour it in your dirty old glass. Cheap and gross.
Had a 2frer1 coupon so not bad. I liked it that it was older people like over 35 not a bunch of teenies.
Good vibe, music volume and sport on tv if you like that(not).
I don't do this often but I felt that I should write a review considering I went to this place based on previous reviews on this site only to be extremely disappointed with bad service, long wait times and mediocre food. I do recommend the Assorted Tempura, It was delicious. I wish there was better organization with our food order.. I mean, If I'm the only one who ordered soup, why are you putting it RIGHT in front of my friend? My friend ordered Tempura, why are you moving my plate and setting it RIGHT in front of me? I understand that people can fall under pressure, maybe another staff member would be in order? In fact, as soon as we stepped inside the restaurant we weren't even acknowledged, not a smile, "hello", nod or even eye contact, instead we waited in silence for a good five minutes where we witnessed a table of four being re seated to another table for four to allow my table of two to sit??? It made no sense!? I think the food presentation was beautiful, tasted ok for the most part, wouldn't dine there again. It was a Tuesday, I can't imagine how it would be on a Friday.
Been here twice in the last week; once for dinner and once for lunch. I have to say lunch fared much better than dinner. The ambiance is very nice at night for dinner, with a lady playing on a chinese piano instrument, but the food was kind of meh - the mango lemon tilapia was small and drenched in mostly sauce. The Roti, while big, didn't have the tastiest accompanying sauce. The pineapple fried rice was tiny and didn't come in a pineapple like other Thai restaurants. The most disappointing dish was the Mango Sticky Rice at the end. They gave us an almost rotten mango and it had no coconut sauce, so something didn't taste right. For lunch we tried several items between 9 people. Taste and portions seemed a lot better for lunch except for the Tom Yum seafood claypot which was super salty. But we did enjoy the lemongrass fried chicken, basil beef, red duck curry and the fried banana at the end. Even if we went on our own for just 2 people, their lunch specials seem pretty reasonable with a tasty meat, plus rice and soup. Overall, not bad, but not great that I would go back. =(
Purchased a Group On Coupon and went to check out the "Cat" ( supposedly a Port Coquitlam landmark ) on a Saturday night. This place is a real pub, great atmosphere, unbelievable value for the food we ordered, and great service. Usually walking into a premise without a hostess your ignored by the servers etc till you sit down, however, we were greeted by the male bartender as we walked in the door and told he would send down a server ASAP. The place was busy and our server came by and dropped off menus immediately but said she would be right back. Service was not great but server in our section was very busy and I was amazed at how she was keeping up to the customers. Food toke 25 minutes from time we ordered, which was well worth the time because it was great!
Have been back again to use the other Group On coupon we purchased but on a Tuesday night. Not as busy as before, but great service, great warm people, and food was super!
I am not an expert, but daughter and husband have been to many thai restaurants in the lower mainland. We went there 3 weeks ago, and all said BEST THAI they have ever had. So went again this last weekend with 9 guests, some from Kelowna, and know thier food. Again. WOW this is amazing. Best part is Husand of cook Garth came out to explain to us that they use all fresh ingrediants for everything, but mainly to warn us that the chilies are cut fresh. Soooo order mild and have a side dish of the fresh chillies to add as needed. Good thing as, very good at mild. Highly reccommend the All Thai'd Up's Jealousy . only choice...Suicidal... But wow what a dish. I hope more try them out. Yes slightly out of way but as soon as enter, the rest of the world is gone. Fantastic. The only spot my kids will take anyone now.
Went to the Giggle Dam with some family.
I had been to Maz & Me's dinner theater back when it was on Davie Street (think early 90's). It was good, but the food left a lot to be desired.
Fast forward to a similar concept, but in PoCo and it is the Giggle Dam.
This is a whole evening affair, reservations are required. It is dinner theater/variety show, not a drop in and eat place.
The food was really good. There was a choice of chicken, beef, fish and vegetarian pasta (all served with a sprig of parsley because it is cheap and looks nice). The sides were potatoes and veggies. Salad was served before along with rolls (sometimes they serve soup). The portions were generous and the food quality was quite good considering the volume and that it was pretty much all served at once.
Drinks (purchased separately) were good. The Cesar was good (not too spicy), the Pina Colada (Chi Chi) was good (they used a good mix). I was a little disappointed in my Singapore Sling, but they corrected it when asked by adding some grenadine.
The show was awesome. A little bawdy, a little hokey, but do not underestimate the musical talent of these performers. After the funny First Act, the second Act featured tributes and covers to various artists. The performers are extremely musically talented and have excellent stage presence. The Second Act was my favourite part.
The performers and servers will interact with audience, and even have some audience participation. It is all good silly fund.
A little note about the bill at the end. Taxes are added to both your drinks AND to the price of the dinner (so $55.00 for the dinner/show plus whatever you drink and HST is added). Also, an 18% gratuity is added to both the $55 and whatever you order to drink). The staff are well worth this, I'm only mentioning it here so that there is no shock for someone who might attend.
All in all - a good time. I'll be back.
I'll remind once again - purchase tickets as if going to a show at a theater. It is dinner theater and not a drop in restaurant.
I used to come to this place years ago and it was really dirty so I stopped. Came last week with partner and child. It has been decluttered and cleaned up - good sign. On a Friday night there were about 5 tables being used - not such a good sign.
The souvlakis were both good, prawn and chicken. Came with a thimble of tzatziki and they charged a dollar for each extra thimble. NOt impressed. The rice was boring and the potatoes were not real greek lemon potatoes just mushy roast potatoes. Pita was good but portions all around skimpy. The greek salad dressing is the best around though. At $18.95 each for souvlaki I thought it was downtown prices for burbs quality and atmosphere. The kids meal was atrocious with a small serving of spaghetti with tomato sauce well over $6 and then $3 for a drink and no dessert. Way below quality and standard price for most kids meals at higher quality restaurants. All in all so so. Would go again if someone else is paying.
We went to the Treehouse on its re-opening night and it was packed full of people. The food was better than before, smaller menu better choices. The Thursday night .25 wins are awesome. We got the Caju nand honey garlic and they were coated in flavour, they did not skimp out on that. All in all the new Treehouse is great, me and my fiance now have a close to home favorite spot for a great dinner out at a good price.
Not much has changed in the last 20 years at this place, still looks kind of dingy and old, but one thing remains constant is the food. It's good enough, in terms of portion and price, but the service is non-existent bordering on horrible. My guess is that they are always packed so they just want to get as many tables in as possible, so often the service is abrupt and you always have to chase down a waitress for everything, including the bill. We used to go all the time when I was younger, for staples like noodles, congee, hainan chicken and curries and the food was a bit better than its neighboring competitors. It was only recently that I got to try the "choose your own adventure" dinner menus, where you choose at least 5 or 6 dishes for a given price. We had a good variety of meat, veggies and seafood dishes and went home quite full, mind you also quite thirsty. =) Overall cheap & tasty, and a quick alternative for random family gatherings when we don't wanna cook at home, but if you're looking for gourmet and fantastic service, this place isn't it.
I absolutely love Wah Wing and the food the food they serve. The restaurant has a beautiful chandelier that hangs at the top of the ceiling. My family and I have been eating there for years and things are improving. I absolutely love the tan tan mian. it gives off a great smell and it tastes even better!!
It was so peaceful when we ate, we can have a heartwarming talk without loud noises interrupting us.
The value was pretty good too. The food they serve us are in big portions so we would be full and happy.
i definitely recommend this.
We ordered Pasta and 2 apetizer. Received half the appy's and plain pasta. They offered to deliver the other half which was received 25 mins later........ no real excuse or anything. Kitchen manager came over the phone and said it wasn't the driver's fault and that it would be there soon. Next time San Remo it is or boston pizza or dinaky's or chinese.
