Golden Boot, The1028 Ridgeway Ave, Coquitlam
Not impressed
Submitted Tuesday, January 17, 2012 - 3:35pm [Dine in]

I've heard good things about Golden Boot so I don't know if they were having an off night but my recent experience there was disappointing at best. We ordered a margarita pizza and I was hoping for an authentic Italian taste but it was basically just as good as a plain cheese pizza you'd get at Pizza Hut. There was nothing tasty about it at all. We also ordered a pasta dish which is what they're supposed to be famous for but it was one of the most disgusting things I've ever eaten. I don't think they put one grain of salt in the water--blech! Handmade or not handmade-pasta from right out of a box would have been much better.

I agree with other comments that the waiters tend to spend all their time with the regulars and barely have a smile for you if you're not. The ambiance is okay. They've expanded it so there are more tables and it's not so cramped in there as it once was.

Overall, there is nothing about The Golden Boot that would make me want to go there again.

Tada Sushi931K Brunette Ave, Coquitlam
A good deal for good food
Submitted Sunday, July 17, 2011 - 9:11pm [Dine in]

We've been trying to find a new regular sushi place in Coquitlam for some time now since our regular place closed down. Tada Sushi is tucked away in a small shopping complex in between Woody's pub and the French Quarter pub on Brunette. I've driven by so many times but never realized it was there. The restaurant is small (only 4 tables) and the decor simple but it's clean and tidy. The health inspection reports are all okay too so I'll take that as a good sign. Tada sushi has been there for a while but based on my discussion with the staff, the current owner has owned it since March or May of 2011.

We ordered the chicken dinner box and was amazed at the value. For $6.99 we got chicken teriyaki with rice, 4 pieces of california roll, tempura, miso soup and garden salad. Everything was very tasty and definitely on par with other sushi places we've gone to. I'm used to paying about $12.00 for pretty well the exact same thing at other restaurants. What a deal! We also ordered the dynamite roll and it was very fresh and tasty too.

The staff was friendly and were quick to happily clean up my daughter's spilled drink. It would have been more efficient if they had brought out the miso soup before the dinner box as other restaurants tend to do but overall I was pleased with the service.

We'll definitely be paying Tada sushi another visit in the near future.

Hanano Sushi & Grill555 Clarke Rd, #14, Coquitlam
A Disappointment
Submitted Monday, June 13, 2011 - 8:36pm [Dine in]

We've been going to Hanano for a few months now but our experience last night really has made us consider looking for a new sushi joint. Because we sometimes have to wait a while for our meal, we decided to call our order in early so that we wouldn't have to wait long once we got there especially because we have kids. I made it abundantly clear (or so I thought) on the phone that it was not a take-out order and that we would be eating in the restaurant. Sure enough, when we got there our order was in take out containers and the waitress actually asked us if we wanted to eat out of the take-out containers! Yeah, like that's why I go to a restaurant-to eat out of a container. We also asked to have our 4 year old daughter's roll made smaller so that it would be easier to eat. We've asked them to do this before for us and I don't know why we bothered asking again because they just don't seem to understand. Other restaurants have no problem accomplishing this task and although it seems like a simple request, it's an impossibility for them to do it. Believe it or not, the roll actually seems bigger than the average size roll. The chicken teriyaki we ordered was terribly over salted but the rest of the meal was tasty enough. Go here if you have a simple order but if you require anything remotely special, forget about it, they just don't seem to understand a thing.

Joey550 Lougheed Highway, Coquitlam
A Pleasant Surprise
Submitted Monday, June 13, 2011 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

For our anniversary my husband and I decided to try out Joey's. Boy, are we sure glad we did. The restaurant is very well decorated with a great ambiance. Everything we ate was top-notch and so delicious. We had the calamari to start and it was nice to see it had an aioli dipping sauce as opposed to the typical tzatziki sauce. We then each had the chicken and ribs combo and everything on that plate was simply divine. I was pleased to see strawberry shortcake on the menu because you don't often see it as an option. It was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. It's not the cheapest place to eat but considering the quality of the food we received, it was worth every penny. We will for sure be heading back for our next special occasion.

Sokela1001B Austin Ave, Coquitlam
Wasn't impressed
Submitted Monday, May 16, 2011 - 9:41pm [Dine in]

I've been wanting to try Sokela since they changed from Alekos a few years back. The renovation very much improved the ambiance overall and the service was excellent. We ordered the calamari which we found excessively greasy. We also ordered the ribs, rack of lamb and apple pie and overall everything was tasty. We were a bit shocked to recieve our bill though even with an $18.00 off coupon. For what you get, it really is over-priced especially for Coquitlam. I'm glad I tried it out finally but don't think I'll be going back anytime soon.

Skewers Mediterranean Grill228 Schoolhouse Street, #8, Coquitlam
Authenic Lebanese food in Coquitlam
Submitted Monday, May 16, 2011 - 7:56pm [Take-out]

We've been looking for an authentic Lebanese restaurant and we've really found it with Skewers. We had the shawrma pita wrap and the tabouleh and both were very delicious. The staff were very friendly and we're so glad we finally tried it because we will definitely be going back for more.

My Greek Taverna946 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
Best Greek Food in Coquitlam
Submitted Saturday, March 13, 2010 - 10:06pm [Dine in]

There's a reason why there's almost always a wait to get into this restaurant. Quite simply, they offer the best value for the best Greek food in town. The portions are huge and delicious. The last few times we've been in there, we've ordered the platter for two which includes just about every Greek delicacy you can imagine. They leave nothing out. My husband and I can really pack it away but even we couldn't finish all that they gave us so we had lunch the next day. The calamari is particularly yummy.

The only thing I recommend is calling very early for reservations as they only accept a certain number of reservations on a Friday and Saturday night.

Tenkai Japanese Restaurant1147 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam
Quiet restaurant with good Sushi
Submitted Saturday, March 13, 2010 - 9:59pm [Dine in]

We've gone to Tenkai for a few months now and have had consistently good, tasty food in a quiet, clean environment. You get good value for your money and I like that they have special plates and cups for kids. I also like that they make a special effort to cut my daughter's sushi pieces extra small; she's three and a half years old so that's a nice touch. The service is pretty good too and we never have to wait long. We're quickly becoming regulars!

Kefi Greek Kouzina100 Schoolhouse St, #102, Coquitlam
Not Impressed
Submitted Saturday, March 13, 2010 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

We had tried to go to a couple of other Greek restaurants tonight but they were either too busy (for good reason) or had closed down and so as a last ditch effort to eat Greek food, we tried Kefi's. I really wish we hadn't. The atmosphere was nice enough but the rice was over-cooked and was virtually tasteless. It was unlike any rice I've eaten at any other Greek restaurant in my life. The whole wheat pita is a nice idea in theory but doesn't work in reality as it was so dry and unappetizing. The chicken souvaki and roast lamb were not bad. The service was okay. I left the restaurant unsatisfied and wishing I could re-think our decision to eat there in the first place.
