Pho Maxima Restaurant822 Twentieth Street, New Westminster
One of the Worst Pho Restaurants in the Lower Mainland
Submitted Saturday, August 21, 2010 - 9:40pm [Dine in]

For pho restaurants, or any type of noodle house in general, I don't expect too much in terms of service or ambience. As long as I'm greeted with a "Hi", given a menu and a seat and have good food served at a decent price. Walked into this place with my family and was told to sit at a table in the middle of the restaurant. One booth was available, but had dirity dishes on it. Heaven forbit to have the host clean the table, which seemed like a theme for the next hour or so. After seated my wife went to the washroom. Waited five minutes when my wife returned, and still we were not given any menus. Go figure. Told my wife to grab a menu so we could decide what to order.

Host comes by and asks if we are ready. Well no because we just got our menus! Told her to come back in a few. After deciding what to order, it ended up me flagging her down because she cannot multi-task. By the way, I notice the host/waitress did this to three other groups that came in.

My wife ordered a large noodle soup with rare beef and tendon and I ordered the same, but with beef brisket instead of rare beef. Now, one of the positive qualities of a pho joint is that the meal comes really quick, usually five ... ten minutes the most. After 20+ minutes, or meals came.

I guess if you put tendon on the menu, its OK to have one small piece of tendon in your bowl. This happened to both of us. Also, the broth was a little salty, which says a lot as I like salt. After my first taste, I thought I should have went with a rice dish, but I then realized that the meat looked really burnt from all the other rice dishes that I saw other patrons ordered. Was actually watching an old guy sitting next to me, hacksaw his grilled racoon with his knife. (Sorry, I am sure they use real cuts of chicken, pork or beef).

Anyways, meal was garbage, service was garbage and no, I will not be going back here. To try one positive about this place is that the washroom was decent. Probably because the host looks like she demands her royal rear to sit on a clean toilet bowl!

Wok Box805 Boyd Street, Unit T115, New Westminster
My Meal Did Not Come in the Box!
Submitted Monday, September 22, 2008 - 12:27am [Dine in]

Checked out the Wok Box in Queensborough Landing in New Westminster. The idea of eating noodles or rice out of an Asian style take out box has some appeal. Also, thought the idea of really cooking something exciting out of a sizzling wok was another draw.

The menu is decent enough, with a variety of different Asian style stir fries, from Malaysian curry to butter chicken. I ordered the Black Bean on noodles, while the Bionic Woman ordered jungle curry and orange chicken. The Bionic Daughter had won ton soup.

The jungle curry had a weird tang to it while the won ton was mostly wrapping (thick wrapping) and little meat. The orange chicken was deep fried and then tossed in orange sauce. Not bad. My black bean was disappointing. I know black bean is salty, but the guy who was cooking (its an open kitchen so I know it was a guy) put too much sauce in the entree.

When one of the staff asked us how are meals were, I mentioned the saltyness of the black bean and she mentioned that all their sauces are made to specifications by a third party. Interesting. I thought part of the freshness would be to make the sauce in-house. Oh well!

Couple things to note; 1) You order the food at the register and they bring it out to you and; 2) Eating in, they do not serve the food in an Asian box, but on a plate. The presentation is good however.

Overall, kind of disappointed. Repeat? Probably not. Go to Taco Del Mar across the parking lot for fresh. :-)

New York New York Greek Restaurant6361 152 Street, Suite 301, Surrey
Usually a Good Place But Not This Night
Submitted Monday, September 22, 2008 - 12:06am [Dine in]

I have been to this place a few times already and the food has been very good. However, the night I went, I thought the grub was a major disappointment. Was in the mood for pasta and since there is very little to choose in South Surrey, we thought we go to New York New York as they usually have four or five pasta dishes.

Got in and looked at the menu and I saw veal schnitzel and thought, "Hey, that sounds good!". The entree came with Greek style rice, Greek salad, lemon potato ... basically the usual Greek sides. I asked if I can substitue this with part of a pesto sauce pasta. Its a dish they serve. The Server said No, saying that the menus are set. Go figure. Being drawn to the schnitzel, I said, alright just give me the entree.

The result, the veal schnitzel was covered with feta, which made it really salty. The rice, which I figured was hard to screw up, was hard and part crunchy. Everything else was your average Greek fare. The server came by and ask how are meals were, and I said "Alright". Being chicken to say that it was weak, I was hoping that the server would catch on and ask further why it wasn`t good...but nope!

Like I said earlier, I have been here before and the meals have been fairly good, solid three stars, but today, I think it was a disappointment.

BTW: I orded a sleeve of Wersteiner (spelling), and it cost me $4.35, and the volume of the glass was smaller than your average size sleeve. Get the pint if you order a beer.

Steveston Pizza Co.3400 Moncton Street, #100, Richmond
Great Pizzas!
Submitted Saturday, February 9, 2008 - 8:33pm [Dine in]

My wife and I came across this place last year while walking around Steveston Village. Even the look of this small place on the corner seemed interesting. Further review noticed that the ingredients were of the organic variety.

In a nutshell, this place is excellent. We had the Cavemen, which is a meat lovers type pizza, and the Margarite Two, a cheese based pizza with creamy feta and bocconcini. Both were very yummy. The ingredients mix well together and there was no burning of the crust or soft textures that you can get with more commercialized establishments.

The place is very small, which restricts eating in the place as there only two bar stools facing the window. The service was good as the pizza came out on time that the person behind the counter said it would. The owner seems very nice when I have had the chance to talk to him.

The pizzas are more sophisticated, so if your thing is Gopolous or the Hut, then don't bother. But if you like pizzas that have different and better ingredients, then give this place a try if you are in the area. I believe its only open in the evenings and you cannot purchase by the slice. Also, because of its size, its better to get take out.

Wang's Beef Noodle House8390 Granville Street, Vancouver
Go for the Food!
Submitted Saturday, February 9, 2008 - 8:12pm [Dine in]

First off, to all the people that have reviewed this place and said that the service is awful. WTF do you expect? The commonality of a noodle house is crappy service! As long as the server does not have her thumb in the soup when she places it on your table is considered success. I have been here at least once a month for the past year and found the service only once to be considerably long in wait ... and that was due to just shortage in servers. The last time I was here, I thought the service was fine.

I have tried a few items on the menu, and have not come across the "too salty I have to spit it out" experience. I find the food to be consistently very good. The noodles are excellent, especially the thick noodles. The broths are good in the soup. As well, the rice dishes are excellent and the dumplings and sides are savory.

If service and ambiance is what you are looking for, then go somewhere else. If its good food that you want, then give the place a try.

Rico Taiwanese Cuisine8580 Alexandra Road, #1015, Richmond
Rico is Reeko
Submitted Wednesday, November 7, 2007 - 1:08am [Dine in]

Wanted to try a new Taiwanese restaurant and took the family to this place.

The portions in this restaurant are embarassing small. My wife's ground meat over flat noodle looked fit for a child. The taste was so-so. My beef noodle soup was below average. The broth was sweet, and the beef was like eating beef jerky, without the smoked flavour. I order fried wontons which were tiny and my wife had fried chicken wings. Don't know why the wings were deep fried using tempura batter. Guess they are having an identity crisis.

Small portions and lacklustre food does not make for a good meal. The restaurant is clean enough but never a good sign when the washrooms are used for storage...baby high chairs? Service was decent, especially since I only speak English.

Overall, go somewhere else.
