Jamaican Pizza Jerk2707 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Worst Jamaican food possible
Submitted Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 6:02pm [Take-out]

I tried this business for the first time in Lafarge Lake Canada Day celebration. I'm a big fan for Jamaica food.

But their jerk chicken roti is super dry! 1 piece of chicken surrounded by 4 pieces of potato!! Roti skin is thick and dry as well.

Jerk chicken seasoning doesn't have the authentic Jamaican spice.

I also ordered their Sorel drink. It's a Costco samples size for $2!! And it's not even good at all. It's so diluted and the taste is more like pepto gismo.

I was gonna go try their restaurant but after this experience, I will avoid this restaurant at all cost.

Ginza Restaurant2850 Oxford Street, Port Coquitlam
Should have try Ginza long time ago!
Submitted Thursday, January 14, 2010 - 11:18pm [Dine in]

Past by several times and saw the big sign. But never bother trying.

Tonight, it was raining cats and dogs. And Ginza is close by. So, I popped by and grab some sushi to go.

California roll, Spicy tuna roll @ $2.99 each. Dynamite roll @ $3.95. Everything added up to a little over $10 after taxes.

When I got home, I was awe by the portion.

When I put them into my mouth, wow,… it’s really good.

And fit 2 persons easily!

I’m going back for a real meal there soon.

Used to drive all the way to California Sushi or Sushi town. Now, I have a new spot to frequent.

Malaysian Hut Restaurant14727 108 Avenue, #108, Surrey
Hidden Malaysian treasure!
Submitted Friday, February 6, 2009 - 1:23am [Dine in]

I passed by this tiny restaurant several times, keep reminding me to try it some day for 1 years now. Tonight, I almost missed it again. Luckily, I decide to dropped by and ordered something togo.

When i entered, there were only a family of 4 inside ordering. Not a good sign, I thought. When i looked at the menu,..... I was surprised to find Ko Lok Mee!! I've being to lots of Malaysian restaurant around North America and this is literally the 1st time I see that in North America.

So, I ordered Char Kueh Tiew (togo) and Ko Lok mee to try.

MAN!! IT's GOOD!!! The green chili vinegar is IMO better than Malaysia as they chopped the chili to soak the vinegar better.

The owner told me their Kuching Laksa spice comes all the way from Kuching. Haven't tried this myself but certainly will in my next trip.

Lots of Malaysian restaurant has Rojak. I don't usually order it coz they're watery and not really rojak kinda thickness. And that's what I told the owner. And she brought out a sample of their rojak for me to try. REAL AUTHENTIC MALAYSIAN ROJAK! This is not some Hong Kong wannabe Malaysian kinda rojak!

They have a few item that you have to order in advance like rendang beef and Popiah!

Kintaro Ramen788 Denman Street, Vancouver
Food that make you sick!
Submitted Wednesday, July 19, 2006 - 2:13am [Dine in]

Restriction: Min $6.95/person (ie: no food sharing), no togo container (so either you finish, or you throw away), no credit card,

I ordered the fatty pork with medium fatty soup ramen. Noodle texture is good, taste is pretty good. But the fatty pork is way too greasy. I felt like throwing out after the food.

My bro ordered the Cheese ramen,.... tasted like chinese preserved bamboo. He only ate 20% and coz this place doens't have togo container (literally), he threw away everything.

Chada Thai Fine Cuisine2991 Lougheed Hwy, #107, Coquitlam
Amazing and beautiful thai food and closer to home too!
Submitted Saturday, July 8, 2006 - 1:53am [Dine in]

Finally, don't have to drive down to US for good Thai food!

The chef, formally from Four Season Hotel, prepared authentic thai food with French design. You get to eat with your eyes before your tongue.

The red table tops with orange wall with interesting thai art showcases on the wall makes this restaurant feels cozy. We were greeted by Brian (one of the owners,...i think) with his witty friendiness. After seated by the window, Brian took out a candle in a red round glass container and light it in front of us.

Food is quite spectacular. Had the panang curry beef. It's creamy texture curry beef and yam with lightly deep fried spinach with a touch of salt on in the middle seperating the cury from the rice which is artfully decorated is a must try!

Thai ice tea topped with cream is refreshing. Cucumber drink is all natural without any artificial sweetening (I think) goes really well with the spicy food as well as the hot summer weather.

Other table ordered the ginger and lemongrass drinks. Those are on my to try list!

Brian recommended FBI... Fried Banana Ice cream,.... and it's simply to die for! Ice cream lightly decorated with syrup with crispy banana and bluberry sprinkled randomly on the plate.

And that's not the last surprises,.... normally in chinese restaurant, bill comes in a piece of paper,..sometimes with fortune cookies or mint candies. Theirs comes with refreshing lychee!

It's about time Coquitlam gets this catergory of trendy exotic food.

Swiss Chalet Rotisserie & Grill3204 West Broadway, Vancouver
Best Chalet ever!
Submitted Thursday, March 9, 2006 - 5:51pm [Dine in]

Don't mean to sound bias, but this Swiss chalet has the best service period. Thought we always eat light there, we always receive friendly service (especially Julie).

They have really good value and tasty food. Their salad is fresher compare to other chalet. They keep their Wednesday special even though other chalet have removed them years ago. Feels like they're there not serve the community there, not suck every penny up.

Accents Restaurant1967 W. Broadway, Vancouver
Good set dinner selection
Submitted Tuesday, March 7, 2006 - 3:56am [Dine in]

Enjoyed their dinner on several occasions. Good selection of 3 course meals and they change their menu quite regularly. The restuarant is always packed and there's limited number of seat so reservation highly recommended.

They have live music once in a while.

Quality has gone down hill
Submitted Tuesday, March 7, 2006 - 2:24am [Dine in]

This is my 1st Japanese food in Canada in 1994. Food and service was really good then.

But when I return 1 year ago, quality of food has gone down the drain. They might have a lot more selection of food, but much less quality.

The vege is not fresh for the salad. There are a lot more japanese restaurant around to go back to this one.

Ap Gu Jung Restaurant1642 Robson St., Vancouver
Don't get the same service/food if you're not Korean
Submitted Tuesday, March 7, 2006 - 2:12am [Dine in]

I have been eating at this restaurant for about 1 year now. My favourite is their spicy Bulgogi pork and tender Galbi beef. One of the best value in town at $5.95 for bento box.

They used to serve free appy like Kimchi, seaweed, sprout and sweet potato. But they just recently stop serving those those to non-Korean.

The table beside us ordered the exact same bento that we did and they were served free appy and we were refused. I speculated the reason been they are Korean and we are not. This is not the first time I received such double standard treatment from Korean restaurant.

China Palace3030 Lincoln Avenue, 112, Coquitlam
Great value and good food
Submitted Tuesday, March 7, 2006 - 1:57am [Dine in]

Their afternoon tea special from 2pm is the best value for the quality you get. For $5.95, you get good portion of entree with drinks included. Surprisingly, the food is really yummy.

My favourite is the pork chop with rice. It's so cheesy. Another good choice is the Szechuan beef noodle.

The service is actually quite good. When you order take out, they wrap everything nicely: Hard piece of paper at the bottom of bag to shape the bag. Drinks are securely bag to avoid spill.

Atmoshpere is just like regular chinese family restaurant. I just frequent there for it's quality food with great value.

This place is Coquitlam best kept secret place for everyday food!

Sweet Revenge Patisserie4160 Main Street, Vancouver
Indulge yourself
Submitted Monday, March 6, 2006 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I frequent this sweet store. They use real vanilla bean not the extract.

Their specialty "Sweet Revenge" is highly recommended. Chocolate pudding is to die for,... not too sweet, but rich and creamy. Try their organic Raiboos tea from africa. It'll sooth you. Together with the traditional music, old english style decor and good dessert, you'll feel like Queen Elizabeth!

Guu with Garlic1698 Robson St, Vancouver
Japanese food: Tapas style
Submitted Monday, March 6, 2006 - 9:13pm [Dine in]

This is the place where you can try various japanese food without emptying your wallet. The place always packed with youngster.

They change their special regularly so you don't get sick of it.

Careful of the waiter and waitresses as they literally shout out your order as you pick. The furniture used is old and needs to be replaced or cleaned.

As they have counter-kitchen-bar open space, expect yourself to smell like food after you're done.

Food is tasty with lots of various selections.

Tropika4151 Hazelbridge Way, #1830, Richmond
The best of the 3 locations
Submitted Monday, March 6, 2006 - 9:05pm [Dine in]

This location has the best service among their 3 locations. The waiter always make sure I have enough sambal chili sauce by giving me a large portion.

Food is pretty much the same with all the Tropikas,.... good and authentic. If you have to choose which Tropika to go, choose this one.

Good food.
Submitted Monday, March 6, 2006 - 9:02pm [Dine in]

Visited this location several times and the food never disappoint each time. Service is pretty good as they ensure you have enough water to cool off the heat.

However, there was this one time the waiter fooled me by bringing out a small portion of their tasty sambal chili topped with other cheaper substitution.

That was when I visited the restaurant with $8 off coupon.

Bad service but Reall authentic asia food
Submitted Monday, March 6, 2006 - 8:55pm [Dine in]

I have been to this location 4 times and 3 out of the 4 times there, the service was really bad. The waiter (I believe the name is Walter) never paid attention to my ordering 2 times when I was there. He brought out the wrong items 2 times when I was there.

When i requested for their tasty Sambal Chili, the waiter actually brought out a small portion topped with regular chili. He mixed the sambal chili with other cheaper substitution trying to fool me.

Other than that, the food is really good authentic Malaysia food.
