Lazy Den Tea House is a quaint and friendly place to enjoy a fabulous selection of bubble teas. I first found the Lazy Den when they were located in Coquitlam. After my first enjoyable experience with the friendly staff and outstanding bubble tea (not to mention the great prices!) I quickly became a 'regular'.
Despite the fact that they have moved to a new (but much nicer) location in Port Moody which is much farther from my house, I still journey over for my bubble tea fix!
As mentioned, the staff is very friendly. They always remember me and chat with me and ask about my baby girl when I drop by. (With the amount of bubble tea I drank when I was pregnant, my daughter will be a devoted second generation bubble tea drinker when she's old enough to safely have the pearls!)
One reviewer mentioned that the tea is a bit sweet. Here's a quick secret, next time ask for half sugar, which is what my husband and I do. The staff is more than happy to adjust the sweetness to suit your taste.
I highly recommend trying the Lazy Den Tea House.
went there for DOV08. I can't really judge this place since I've been there only once and it was DINE OUT too. But as for my DOV08 experience, I did not want to go back. We had a group of 4 and we knew that the portions are going to be huge. We could never finish if we ordered all 4 meals individually. So when we said we want to share 3 for 4 people and might order more if not enough, we could see the unfriendly kind of "WHAT?" in her eyes. We rather not waste food not becuz we wanted to save money.
Food was quite disappointed since Boathouse is always famous and we have heard good comments about it. The steak was just average, prawns were not bad. Appies were not memorable. The desserts were SCARY. I love cheesecakes but guess what, all 4 of us couldn't even finish ONE among all 3 desserts. The cakes were unpleasantly big to be an ending dish. I felt like puking after eating and I did not even try to finish the cakes!!
Services: not bad but busy so they kind of rushed around and we felt a bit ignored. Maybe cuz they thought we were cheap for sharing dishes. So I still decided to tips them better than 15% so they wouldn't feel as bad.
The view is awesome. U see the water and birds etc. Beautiful!
Dun think I'd go back, if I go back, then I'm going to try other locations but not this one in Port Moody.
This restaurant has all the key elements to good dining! I go here almost every week cuz i appreciate the service and the quality of the food. Even the chef is willing to lend a hand at serving the food at peak times. My favorite would be Mee-Goreng! Excellent dish to have for lunch coupled with a chicken-corn soup to start. The lunch specials are great too! Pork and beans is my pick (yes it tastes better than it sounds). Overall its an excellent restaurant and well balanced! Give it a try! Happy Dining!
Located in a cute house on a hill in Port Moody. Very authentic interior and the place is run by the owner and his wife. We ordered Pad Thai, Tom Yum Khai soup, Chicken and Cashew and a Shrimp dish. All pretty good, nicely balanced. Portions were ok. Pleasant dinner.
Food was tasty and they were really nice people. Quaint would be the correct description of this place.
This restaurant offers three lunch specials, one comprises three differnt dishes for $ 5.75. The owner/ manager is very nice and waits tables with one other person so when they get busy it can slow down. Allthough it is a Chinese restaurant you rarely see any Asians which is rather strange. Nice and clean including the wash rooms.
I've read all of the reviews listed here for Rosa's, and I felt like I had to chime in. I'm not sure how many times I've been to Rosa's, but it's quite a few as it seems to be my family's favorite restaurant.
While I enjoy the food, it's not my favorite place to go. Yet every birthday, or family dinner out, we always go to Rosa's. I suppose my family would be regulars, Rosa knows them by name. I wouldn't say we get very much special attention though. Still can't make a reservation, still end up waiting outside for god knows how long if it's busy. Last time we went was a sunday, and we arrived very early to make sure we didn't have to wait. We were there for 4 hours! Service is TERRIBLY slow. Have to ask for drink refills. Waited forever for our food. We were lucky this time, and our waitress was actually pretty good. As for Rosa, I find her rude. It's exactly like the Seinfeld's soup nazi! Don't ask questions, and speak up! I've had her roll her eyes at me over my choices, and scoff at any questions I've asked. I think she saves all of her charm for her most favorite customers, or maybe when they're not busy at all!
The food itself is great! Huge portions, always have a lot of left overs. The restaurant is tiny, just a small room with celebrity photos on the walls, and a bunch of tables crammed together. Not my kind of atmosphere. The food is absolutely the only thing that makes this place bearable. No way would I drive all the way out there for crappy service if it wasn't my family's most favorite place. Nick's Spaghetti House is way better, go there!
It's an unassuming, almost uninviting place from the street but very cosy inside.... The street that it takes its name from might be the worst thing about it.
It took us a moment to adjust to the warm orange lighting but it works and the room temperature was perfect for the season. Our table was small and central but not unprivate. I was a bit surprised to see some wine stains on my chair though.
Service was great and we didn't wait for a thing. We were seated right away and my water glass was always full thanks to some invisible waiter. My wife's salad showed up on two plates from my comment that I might have a taste, the waitress anticipated and offered perfectly on that and everything else.
The Caesar salad was absolutely awesome, the bread was good. I had the braised beef and mostly enjoyed it although it came with broccoli, mushrooms, rice; foods that I'm not crazy about. Probably won't get that next time. My wife (and I, heheh) had the Tagliatelle and it was incredible. For dessert my wife (a baker, pastry chef) had the chocolate torte and was humming mm,mmm,mmm until it was done. Reasonably priced and decadent, save some room. Her advice was to eat the torte fast before it cools. My Monte Cristo coffee was excellent and was measured generously, get a regular coffee if caffeine is what you're after. :-)
I have been to Joe's quite a few times now, and the breakfast is outstanding, in taste and value. The eggs benedict is always perfectly cooked, and I have never had better pan fries (hashbrowns) anywhere. At $8.95, a great value too!!
I love that Mac the owner is so friendly. I feel right at home here, and it is a great place to go after a night out!!
I have been by on a Friday night as well, and there is usually a great jam session, I am told this is a Maritime Kitchen Party, but all the westcoast girl knows is that its FUN! It's also a great night to have all you can eat fish and chips. Chips crispy, fish was perfectly fried with a light batter, not greasy.
I am won over by Mac and the home cooked food, and will be going back soon!
We really like Namoo Sushi. Unlike the other reviewer we find the service always speedy and friendly. The food is consistently good and often outstanding. We chose to take a pair of neophyte sushi eaters here for their first experience and they left very happy indeed. I would happily recommend Namoo Sushi to anyone.
If you want to taste a "real" roti this is the spot. The roti is light and flaky with the channa flour producing the texture that you would expect froma caribbean kitchen. I has the goat roti and the meat was tender, with no fat or bone and very nicely seasoned. Anyone who hasn't tried curry goat should sample a goat roti as a nice introduction. The meat is similar to beef and very tasty when cooked properly as it is at Rehannah's. The roti I have sampled at other places in Vancouver claiming to be caribbean restaurants comes off as a soggy, flavourless pancake next to what you can find at Rehanah's.
The only drawback is that they appear to keep strange hours. We got there at about 3:pm on a Saturday and they were already closing up for the day. Best to call before you go so as not to be disappointed.
I am new to Vancouver and my girlfriend and I are always looking for good places to eat. This time we went to eat at Rehanah’s Roti based on the good reviews that it received. We were not disappointed.
We both ordered Roti (I got chicken & she got goat). The food was great! I big sized Roti filled with nicely seasoned curry. I order hot and the pepper was amazing.
The food came extremely fast. Staff was very pleasant and courteous.
Cannot complain about the price. Inexpensive good food! You cannot go wrong.
Clean on the inside. Décor may need an upgrade and it does not have a lot of seating.
Overall, we would say that it is a good restaurant and it is one of our new favourite places to eat. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for Roti. We got there near the end of their workday so some other items I wanted like Doubles were already sold out.
Only downside is that it is in Port Coquitlam. I wish it were closer so that I could eat it once a week.
I recommend this place 100%
I go here quite often. And i always go back because the food makes up for the lack in service.
Food: Fresh and tasty, big selection and a great variety. The gomae is amazing. The food portions are pretty large, and you always leave feeling full!
Service- Most of the waitresses are not quick to smile, and seem like it is a real chore to work there. I wish they hired some girls that acted like they wanted to be there. The manager Ailen is great and makes up for all the other girls!
Value: Outstanding! great prices.
Ambiance: Not bad, I like the vibe, booth seating is availiable as well as tables.
you really should give it a try!
Our family has been here twice and each time we left satisfied with the value, and tastiness of the food. On one occasion 13 of us arrived for lunch and we were accommodated very well. As this place becomes more popular we'll have to make reservations I'm sure. The decor is upscale compared to other Chinese style restaurants and bathrooms are clean.
I went to this restaurant last weekend and it was great! The food was fantastic! Especially the squid with gai lan and deep fried pork chops. Everything came out hot and fresh. It was a busy night and was hard to find parking. Service was the usual, the only down part was they ran out of mango pudding:(
I walked in the door, and to my left was a fish tank with dead fish in it. I waited 45 mins for my food with no refills on my coffee. A gentleman who works in the restaurant joined me at my table and introduced himself as the owner. I had my newspaper with me, and the gentleman did not go away. He continued to talk to me about what his business is about and the things they do. When my food finally came it was extremely oversalted, when I complained, the owner ate off my plate, did not take my plate, went into the kitchen and yell at the staff member. His language was atrocious, and very audible in the dining room. When the owner came out of the kitchen, he came to my table, and gave me my bill with an apology. I did not pay my bill, and I will never go back
My wife, two children were treated at this restaurant 2 times by my visiting parents. Both my parents love seafood and wanted to give this place a try(ending being two tries).
Both times the wait time from being sat to giving drink orders was quite long. I would say about 10 minutes. THe drinks came quickly, only for the server to tell that she would be 'right back.'
We would then wait another 10 minutes to take our order.
The food came and really and sadly we waited 30 minutes to 45 minutes for our food to arrive. We came in around 7:30 and were not eating until close to 9pm!!!
The food was bland, a little cold and my order was was cold. Everyone else said their food was adequately warm. We at this time needed to eat and get the kids home. So we tried to eat up and leave.
Both times we were sitting right in front of their kitchen. I have worked in very busy restaurants when I was younger in d/t Vancouver and can appreciate the amount of work it is to server a busy restaurant. But something is off here. THere is continues to be a lot of confusion on whose food is whose. There is from my perspective little leadership on the floor or expediting the food.
Both visits yielded similar wait times.
We did give this place two chances, we are not sure if it is worth a third. When visit 1 = visit 2, you really get a good indication on what to expect. Its really too bad. Great location, good views and right next to Rocky Point park.
Another unpleasant thing about the restaurant are the flies/bugs that seem to buzz around the tables and the high ceiling. IT really takes away from the ambience of the place.
We have eaten and enjoyed the New Westminster and West End locations. This one did not come close to matching food or the service of the others.
My friends and I went to Saint Street Grill for the first time on New Years Eve. The food was very good - I had the lamb shank with a caesar salad starter and the beef carpaccio. They had a pretty good wine list - although not as outstanding as I had expected, but definitely better than average. Staff were very helpful and attentive, and had a great sense of humour. We would easily come to this restaurant again. Refreshing to find such a nice place in the burbs...
This place is fantastic for a "quick" bite and drink with close friends. The pub fare is decent and we always leave full. However, every single time we go, it's insanely packed, so another place with a long wait. I'd recommend the pie and soup - delicious! The fancy booze isn't cheap, but can't go wrong on the beer! =)
Went for dinner at the boathouse. I am not a big fan of the boathouse but some of friends wanted to go there for dinner. We had made reservations and our table was ready. They took our drinks order quickly and got our drinks. They had a special menu for NYE and it was excellent. We had a late sitting reservation so they had run out of a couple of items. The portions were hugh. Had a great time and rang in the new year at the restaurant. I would go back again and the service was good and food was excellent.
Happy New year to all
We have dined here on four or five different occasions over the last few years. If you can get there before 6:00 pm and you don't have more than four people in your party, your chances of getting seated and served promtly improves greatly. Any later than that on a Friday or Saturday night and you will be faced with a lengthy wait outside in the elements.
If you are recognized as one of their regulars you might be greeted with a smile and treated with the respect that any paying customer would expect. Other than that you will be treated like the bad son who has shown up unannounced with a couple of undesireable friends looking to mooch a meal off "Mom." Enough said about the service.
The food has always been the thing that keeps us coming backto this establishment. The fresh bread with a caesar salad is always a good start. All of the main courses that we have tried have been great.
Have tried to order take out when I have't felt up to the wait or the indifferent service and was told that they were too busy to bother with it that evening. Found a more accomodating retaurant that night.
Food is good. Service sucks. What more can I say?
