Cumpari Gelato & Caffe535 North Road, Coquitlam
weird gummy gelato...
Submitted Sunday, April 5, 2009 - 1:24pm [Dine in]

i have mixed feelings about this dessert place.
i do like that they are one of verrry few of its kind in the tricity area-possibly the only one if you're looking for a sit down italian dessert cafe?? i do like that they have patient and attentive service from the folks that work behind the counter-i saw the woman ahead of me sample at least a dozen flavors of gelato before settling on a small cup of something. i like the dimly lit "date" atmosphere that seems to provide a setting for more candid conversation. i also agree it is very expensive but i also think you're paying more for the "date setting" experience.
what i do not like about this place is that their gelato has a weird, gummy texture and is not creamy in any way, shape, or form. the last time i went, i made the mistake of choosing banana split flavor (without trying it first) which tasted like it was made from realllllly old blackened bananas. although pistachio (from a previous visit) was tasty in flavor, it was also gummy. this is a texture i might expect from something like no name fat free frozen ice cream bought from the supermarket. i also had the italian lobster tail pastry (i forget what the proper name for it is) and it tasted old, as if it had been made a week ago. and it was filled with a dark chocolate cream instead of a light pastry cream like it's supposed to.
would i go here again? probably yes if i had a friend that really wanted to go there. i would just try something else on their menu but if it were solely up to me, i would go elsewhere.

sometimes a hit, sometimes...

before the economy went downwards, this place was packed with a lineup every night even though the outside of the restaurant (and possibly the indoors as well??) is something like you'd find on east hastings lol ... old and run down or not, it is still clean and it is one of the very few places in surrey that you can get pretty decent chinese food-depending on what you order. if you choose dishes like the standard sweet and sour pork, chicken chow mein, deep fried wontons etc, you are sure to be dissapointed! i would suggest dishes like their house special live crab, beef lettuce wrap, or seafood basket-all are awesome. but the portions for those dishes are so large, that going with a fair number of people would also be suggested (4 in the least!). Service isn't the greatest, as with most chinese restaurants, but the tables are tidy when you get there and they bring tea, new plates, napkins whenever requested. i'm sure this place would have a higher rating if it wasn't for their ambience so give it a try =)

if i could rate it 3.5 i would =)

after reading the reviews on here, my family and i went to check this place out. we always go to kim hoang just off 104th and 152nd-not because it tastes the best, just cause it is very conveniently located for us. all four of us did really enjoy the food here. the noodles were a little elasticy in texture which is a good sign-freshly prepared rice noodles! and the broth was refreshing. however, the steak in the soup was super tough?? i don't know if it's always like that or if it was just that day seeing as how it was our first time here. the reviews were right, the spring rolls are not to be missed! there is a beef soup and spring rolls special for i think it was 8.50ish. we did enjoy our meal despite the tough meat, but for someone living on the other side of surrey, i can't say it is worth the drive and the pain of finding parking. this place does offer reimbursement for 1 hour of parking in the Safeway parking lot if you bring the bottom of the ticket stub as they are located right behind king george safeway. all that being said, i would still definately come in if i was in the area =)))

awesome crab!!
Submitted Friday, July 11, 2008 - 1:57am [Dine in]

i drive over the bridge from surrey for the salt & pepper crab at this place. the taste is amazing and never over-cooked so the meat is plump and tender. presentation is very well done as well. ive tried quite a number of things off their menu now and there were a couple yucky items... green onion pancake?? i can't remember the exact name but it was a bland, dry disc cut up like a pizza. gross! and i wasn't a fan of their pork with this tangy orange glaze-it was on their lunch special menu-ew! But chow mein, chow fun, fried rice, beef n' gailan, sea scallops are all really tasty as well as their seafood congee. dim sum is also pretty good-especially when it's so hard to get it around this side of town =)

Sango Japanese Restaurant19800 Lougheed Hwy, #350, Pitt Meadows
funky atmosphere
Submitted Friday, March 7, 2008 - 1:57pm [Dine in]

this restaurant is an interesting little find tucked away in the large strip mall. the atmostphere is hip and very modern. our waitress was very attentive and friendly and had helpful recommendations-although it looked like she definately was not old enough to be serving us our beer?? the food on the other hand is trying too hard to be like the atmostphere-hip and modern and it totally misses the mark. the sashimi carpaccio-which i love trying at various japanese restaurants when available, was just a plate of precut sushi pieces arranged on a plate with some kinda almost caesar salad like dressing drizzled on it-EW. and the crab cloud appetizer of pressed rice topped with crab meat was nothing like a cloud, the rice was pressed so hard, they should rename is cloud brick. we also tried a roll, the name which i have forgotten but it was topped with a long piece of unagi-that was alright. if i were to come back here, it would be for the ambience/modern interior and service but definately not for the food

best beef sashimi but little else
Submitted Friday, March 7, 2008 - 1:34pm [Dine in]

i love that this restaurant is owned and operated by japanese people-something very hard to find in vancouver! the owner seems like a very friendly and personable guy who's always chatting it up with customers and constantly laughing which brings a nice vibe to the place. the waitresses on the other hand all seem so distant even when business is slow. their beef sashimi is absolutely awesome!! it is the only thing i go for because everything else is just soso. the salmon carpaccio we ordered was awful...the garlic butter clams was the saltiest thing i have ever tasted in a restaurant?? the chawanmushi was bland as was the motoyaki ... like, really really bland ... and the spicy sauce that they put on top of my spicy tuna sushi was a nightmare ... although i was impressed that their sashimi did come on top of a slab of ice?? that was pretty cool and how many places in vancouver can you order live sea urchin sashimi?! this place has its great perks and really bad downs

killer fusion rolls
Submitted Friday, March 7, 2008 - 1:16pm [Dine in]

i love coming here for 2 reasons...1 being that there are so very few good places to eat in surrey and no 2 being that they have the best freaking rolls ever!! their las vegas and jazz rolls are my favorite even though the names are kinda cheesy. other than the fusion rolls, everything else is just the regular ordinary fare

Top Gun Sushi At The Quay810 Quayside Drive, #230, New Westminster
So-so
Submitted Friday, November 9, 2007 - 3:24pm [Dine in]

a huge restaurant located in such a nice area of new westminster with very tall glass walls so you have a nice view to enjoy while eating your meal but it still feels dingy somehow. The food is less than average even for an all-you-can-eat buffet but the variety is much greater. Probably will not be back.

Papaya Bistro15057 Marine Dr., White Rock
pleasant surprise on the beach
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 4:31pm [Dine in]

found this place while on a day trip out at white rock and was pleasantly surprised by the food, service and of course the amazing view. Delicious Western and Vietnamese fusion cuisine-definately a first for me! Everything was great except for the mini spring rolls-I wouldn't recommend those, they were a bit on the rubbery side?? but the seafood pasta, crab buckets, crab cakes, etcetc were all great. Prices were also decent so we could get several appies and just share the dishes. The service was also very good but there was only one server working during the dinner shift so, althought great when available, it was on the slow side. Overall, 4 stars!!

large restaurant yet quaint atmosphere
Submitted Wednesday, October 17, 2007 - 4:19pm [Dine in]

i love the roast lamb here-tender, moist and fall off the bone! not to mention the spanakopita-very tasty and flaky =) the restaurant is large and the interior is different in various parts of the restaurant so every time i go, it is always a different experience
