Chada Thai Fine Cuisine2991 Lougheed Hwy, #107, Coquitlam
The only place I go when I crave for Thai Food
Submitted Saturday, May 29, 2010 - 3:21pm [Dine in]

I just moved to Coquitlam and I often crave for Thai food. I wasn't sure where to go until I spotted this place one day while I was heading to Save on Foods. Hm..this place always have ppl inside, it must be good? Yup, definitely. I've visited here 3 times already during lunch and it's always 80% packed even though they only have less than 10 small tables. They have lunch specials for $10 which includes small soup, small salad and entre (such as meat w/ rice or fried rice, etc). It's always good.
*** One important thing you need to know is that when you ask for medium spicy, it's quite spicy! *** I learned it the hard way.
Their service is always good. Very polite and attentive. I get my water refilled almost every 10mins.
The previous reviewer is right, they're quite pricey but at least you're guaranteed w/ good food and service.

Beefy Beef Noodle House4063 Main Street, Vancouver
Only if I have no choice
Submitted Thursday, May 27, 2010 - 11:31am [Dine in]

This is the sister location of the one on Willingdon/Moscrop. I used to go there a lot cuz my partner love their food. Eg- eggplant w/ rice, taiwanese sausage w/ rice & spicy beef noodle.
When I found out about this new place on Main, I decided to give them a try. Boy, was it a disappointment.
I ordered green milk tea and it was tasteless. I like the taste of rich green tea flavor. It felt like I was just drinking diluted coffee mate. I also had the spicy wonton; it wasn't tasty at all. I didn't enjoy my time there.
Will not go again.

Bubble World10090 152nd St, #137, Surrey
Got my BBT & food fix
Submitted Thursday, May 27, 2010 - 11:24am [Dine in]

This Bubble World is located in a huge plaza where T&T is. They have lots of parking.

Since I moved to Coquitlam, I don't know anywhere else in my area that serves good BBT & food. Pearl Castle in PoCo is terrible. So I was glad that they have Bubble World in Surrey which is only 10min drive away.

Their BBTs & food are good and up to standard. The drinks were surprisingly bigger than Burnaby's location.

You can't expect good service at the BBT place so I just rate it mediocre. If you need anything, just ask for it. Don't expect them to provide extra service and smile at you.

Clever Cupcakes, The2985 Northern Ave, Unit 109, Coquitlam
Healthier and tastier alternative
Submitted Monday, May 17, 2010 - 10:16pm [Dine in]

I was just shopping at Kin's Market when I noticed this cute cupcake shop next door. Even though I'm not too fond of extremely sweet icing, I decided to give this place a try. I like to support the smaller, non-corporate guys. What caught my eye was that they claim that they use all natural ingredients.
I bought the double chocolate cupcake for $2. It's chocolate cupcake w/ chocolate icing. Surprisingly, when I took the first bite, I was impressed! It was not as sweet as a thought. It was probably 50% less sweet! The cupcake top was abit crispy/chewy, mmm I love that! The icing was not grainy (like white sugar), it was actually creamy!
Mmmm! I'll definitely buy some more for my love ones!

My friend was right
Submitted Monday, May 17, 2010 - 9:57pm [Dine in]

My friend made a comment about this place before. He said that they always screw up their order. But their drinks are good.
I decided to check this place out one day totally forgot about my friend's incident. Went there on a week night, approx 7pm. The place was tiny and it was half full. We ordered 2 BBT's, green onion pancake and condensed milk toast. The drinks were good and humongous! The green onion pancake was good but oily. But somehow, they forgot about our toast. The service was lacking because it was so hard to find our server. It's like playing hide and seek. By the time we got a server's attention, we were full from drinking our BBT.

yucky
Submitted Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

Well...what do you expect? Sushi should never be dirt cheap or else they'll taste like dirt. That's what happened. Their sashimi was small and not fresh. Their sushi was nasty. I don't expect 5 star food but at least make it edible. After my visit, I'm scared of this place. I will never come here again.

Reef, The1018 Commercial Drive, Vancouver
Greasy Dine Out
Submitted Thursday, May 6, 2010 - 11:24am [Dine in]

It's Dine Out Vancouver again. I was looking for some cheap menu and found this place. What caught my eye was the Jerk Chicken. I had Jerk Chicken before at Lion's Den and I fell I love with it. And I like Caribbean/Jamaican food.
We arrived at 6:30pm on a Friday night. The place was 70% full. Once it hit 7:30pm, it was packed and there were groups of people coming in. This restaurant is not that big so they have no waiting area.
They were short staffed that day, or even everyday, I don't know. There were 2 servers, 1 hostess and 1 guy that brings out food. The service was lacking but I prefer it to be more attentive.
We had plantain chips & yam fries w/ jerk mayo, curry chicken w/ rice, jerk chicken w/ rice, creme brulee and coconut cream pie. Instead of serving bread, they made 2 fried balls with coconut butter. The appys were good but it kind of filled us up. The entres were ok. The jerk chicken was not as tasty as I expected and not spicy. The curry was good, nothing can go wrong w/ curry. As for dessert, the highlight was the coconut cream pie. The crust was flaky and cream was tasty.
When it was time to ask for the bill, it was so much work for us to get our server attention.
I think this place may be great for drinks. They have a full menu for that.

Wilbur & Sabastians Bistro2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Coquitlam
Quite disappointed
Submitted Friday, April 9, 2010 - 4:16pm [Dine in]

After a long day of running errands and doing chores, I wanted to treat myself to a nice lil restaurant. Where to go, I thought. Then I remember that there was this lil bistro near Thrifty's. Not sure what to expect, I took a deep breath and went inside. The moment I stepped in, I saw the server. She was busy advising the customer on something, stood up, kinda rolled her eyes, straightened up, and greeted me. That type of attitude already made me feel abit nervous. I hope the food is good at least, I wished to myself. I sat down and was given water and menu. I was hungry so I was almost immediately knew what I wanted to try. They serve soup, salad, Italian food, etc ranging from $6-15. The server was no where in sight. I waited more than 5 mins and wondering if she'll ever show up. I was very close to leaving. I could easily go to Subway next door. I decided to be patient and give this place a try.
So finally I ordered the Hungarian Goulash w/ potato dumpling. I've never tried Hungarian food so I was kind of fascinated and excited to taste the dish. The food didn't take too long. The one thing that the server did right was to give me a newspaper to read. So when the food arrived, the dish was kinda small and didn't come with rice. For $12.50, I was expecting abit more. The dish reminds me of mini beef brisket in potato stew w/ potato dumpling. Kind of interesting but not delicious. I think all their foods are home-made. It seems like every time I needed something, I have search for my server. She's never around. I think the restaurant is short staffed so she's always in the kitchen. My dining experience feels like I have to use so much of my energy to get some decent service. I worked hard all day and all I wanted was to have a nice, relaxed dinner. When I need something packed up, I have to wait. When I needed the bill, I had to wait. I just wanted to walk out.

Not sure if I wanted to give this place another try. Maybe if I have amnesia.

Fulin Hot Pot Restaurant3025 Lougheed Hwy, #780, Coquitlam
Fresh veggies
Submitted Monday, April 5, 2010 - 11:56am [Dine in]

What I like about this place is that they serve Chinese Hot Pot and Japanese Sukiyaki. I love both of them.
We went here on a weeknight around 7pm and the restaurant was 80% full. This is the best time to go because once the restaurant is 100% full, it's hard to get any kinds of service.
We had Sukiyaki for $15pp. It came in this gorgeous metal pot. There were good amount of choices such as beef, chicken, pork, tofu, veggies, rice, udon, etc. Dipping sauce costs $1 which we realized later that we do not need since the hot pot sauce is salty enough. The meats were not frozen and the veggies were fresh. The service was friendly but after 7:30pm, they were non-existent. They don't really come by to check if you need any water for the hot pot so we had to wave them down several times. Other than that, the food was good. It's definitely cheaper and fresher than Posh.

Bombay Restaurant, The2748 Lougheed Hwy, #205, Port Coquitlam

Submitted Monday, April 5, 2010 - 11:41am [Dine in]

Found this hidden gem from reading the positive reviews here on dinehere. We were craving for some guaranteed yummy Indian food the other day but didn't want to drive too far. Then we discovered this restaurant.
Their curries were delicious and actually spicy! We always order medium but can never taste the spiciness but this time, we almost couldn't handle the heat! It was very flavorful and there were generous amount of meat. The naan bread was soft, thin and average sized (of 2 palms).
The service was amazing. Our server was a pretty young Indian lady and she took our orders without writing it down. She and this other man (possible the owner) were asking us how we were doing almost every 15mins. It wasn't too invasive and it was kinda nice and interesting. Our waters were constantly being filled.
Their tone of voice over the phone was equally friendly also.
Everything went well that night and we'll definitely be going back soon!

Submitted Sunday, March 21, 2010 - 7:50pm [Dine in]

After reading all the positive reviews here, we decided that we must try this place. We planned it weeks ahead and was looking forward to it as the days go closer. I was very excited and couldn't wait to get together with my friends and enjoy a nice dinner together.
But...boy was it a disappointment.
The restaurant was small and crammed. Kinda noisy since everybody can hear what everybody was talking about.
The service was good. Our French server was trying his best and he treated everybody fairly.
As for food, I'm rolling my eyes right now. We all ordered the prix fixe for $42. We had onion soup, salad, beef carpacio as appys. For entres, we had smoked pork tenderloin, beef tenderloin and ling cod. I didn't hear any mmmm's at the table. I knew something was wrong. The soup was good but not the best. The salad was average. The carpacio melted in our mouths.
The pork tenderloin was miniscule, approx. a size of a quarter and there were 3-4 pieces. Oh I was so full afterwards! j/k It came with some mush stuff which I hoped was mashed potatoes but it wasn't. Beside it was some satee onions? I dunno, it was super salty and ridiculous. The dish also came with a decent sized pork belly on the top. It was dry, tasteless and inedible. I was not too happy about it cuz in my opinion, pork is supposed to be the tastiest meat. Btw, I didn't ask for pork belly! The beef tenderloin was kinda dry. It was supposed to be medium rare but it turned out one side was more cooked than the other. Wth? The ling cod was ok, it did not melt in our mouths.
For desserts, we had creme brulee, chocolate cake and cookies. Their creme brulee was average and cold. And the rest was ok.
So overall, it was a disappointment. I don't remember the last time I had a bad meal at a fine dining restaurant.
Oh yeah, the only good thing was their comp. warm fresh baguette. But their crust were abit too soft.

Little Caesars Pizza1020 Austin Ave, #5A, Coquitlam
Little needs to grow up
Submitted Friday, March 19, 2010 - 11:33pm [Dine in]

Wow, I remember ordering pizza from Little Caesar's when I was little. Their pizzas were yummy and their crazy breads were even better (and addictive).
But now, after 10+ years, what happened? They only serve pre-made pizzas. A lot of times, they're old and crappy. Yeah they're kinda cheap at $8 but they taste like a day old pizza. I was extremely disappointed. Not only that, I'm not crazy about those crazy breads anymore. They cheap'd out. They used to be actual bread sticks. Now they just make them into a pizza shape and cut them into strips.
I was very unhappy with my purchase. I will never visit Little Caesar's again.
After my friends hear my complaint, they suggested me to try Panago, Domino's or Me n Eds instead.

Pearl Castle2850 Shaughnessy St, #6102, Port Coquitlam
Eh...
Submitted Friday, March 19, 2010 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

Every time I come here, I always regret it. I always ended up choosing Pearl Castle is because it's the only BBT place (I know) in PoCo and Coquitlam that also serves food. Next time, I'll skip the food and go to Bubble World on North Road (drinks only) instead.
Gosh, their food is not that great. They're either all deep fried items or the other non-fried items are too salty. Their drinks are OK but expensive (approx.$5). They use the same prices as the one in Richmond (which is very popular somehow). At least in Rmd, their atmosphere is more lively.
As for service, they're average to non-existent. They have more than 4 ppl working there on a not too busy day, but it was still hard to get their attention.
One good thing that makes them different from other BBT places is that they accept Interac. Wooooo

Submitted Monday, March 8, 2010 - 12:51pm [Dine in]

After reading some good reviews here, I decided to give this place a try. Boy, do I regret not coming here any sooner!
They serve parfait, crepe and bbt. Mmm perfect for me cuz I love all of them!
Their shop is small and easily missed. The best way to describe the location is that it's right across from the Liquor Store. They are in the same building as Starbucks & Anna's Cake House.
I've went here twice already in a month. We've tried their Tiramisu, Strawberry Cheesecake, Matcha parfait and they're equally addictive. I love their banana crepe ($4) which is drizzled w/ nutella. If you want ice cream on the side it's additional $1. Their bbt are ok.
I love it how they're open late till midnight even on a Sunday. They also accept Interac.

100% recommended.

Soup Plus1102 Austin Ave., Coquitlam
A lil disappointed
Submitted Saturday, January 2, 2010 - 11:25am [Dine in]

I drove by this place countless times and wonder if they're good. So I decided to look this place up on dinehere. I was surprised to see all the good reviews. After reading them, I decided that I must try them out. I'm a soup lover and I was excited to know that there's a "good" soup place nearby.
The first time I went, the wife and husband were working. I guess they're the owners. They did not greet me. Ok, fine. On their blackboard, they had a long list of today's soups: Cream of Mushroom, Clam Chowder, Veg, etc. I decided to try their cream of mushroom to go. When I opened the lid, I was a lil suspicious. It looked exactly like Campbell's soup. The mushrooms were blended into lil pieces. I thought this place makes home-made soup? Anyways, it was good so I let it go.
The second time I went, I decided to eat in. I wanted to try their soup & sandwich combo, I guess that's what they're famous for. I ordered the BLT w/ veggie tomato soup. The BLT was quite awesome. And they use real cheddar cheese! The bread they used I think it's home-made. It's thick, fluffy and full of grains. The soup was once again, a little disappointing. I think they used a lil too much tomato paste, the soup was too sour for my taste buds.

Overall, it was OK. I do wanna try their other soups.

Me NO HAPPY!
Submitted Monday, December 7, 2009 - 11:00pm [Dine in]

Anyways, I'm not a Hot Pot expert but I've tried several places before and they were good. Unfortunately, we made a bad decision to try this place out. We ordered a combo for 2 for $40 which inc/ veggies, 2 prawn, beef & chicken slices, pop and dessert. Each of us get to have our own hotpot.

Food: Sounds good right? Only if you're blind and your tongue is numb. The veggies were either rotten or dried up/brown. I was disgusted. How can a person have the guts to serve us such garbage? The meats were OK, but still, my appetite was long gone. Also, The comp tea tasted horrible.

Service: It wasn't busy and there were 2 servers. Somehow they forgot to turn on the stove for us. Also, it took them a long time to refill the soup base.

Value: Not worth a penny!

I recommend Hotpot One @ Aberdeen Mall or Chubby Lamb @ Alexandra Rd.

Hakone Sushi Restaurant82 Keefer Pl, Vancouver
So glad
Submitted Sunday, October 18, 2009 - 12:31am [Dine in]

Finally, a decent sushi place near Chinatown (by Stadium Station). I've tried the one inside Tinseltown call Kentizen and it wasn't that great.
I think Hakone just opened a month or so ago. The decor is nice and simple. The staffs are either Jap or Korean.
It was my first time trying this place. I was nervous b/c I hate bad sushi, who isn't? We had miso soup, chicken udon, spicy salmon roll & negitoro roll. The negitoro roll was cute, they used two roll pieces to form a heart. The spicy salmon was not spicy but tastes good. The miso soup was average. The chicken udon was a good size and tasty. The only bad thing was that they charge $1each for tea. C'mon now, you can serve us free cheap tea and we wouldn't care.
The service was good and a lil off, maybe b/c they do mostly take-out service.
Other than that, I would definitely go again!

Submitted Sunday, October 4, 2009 - 1:01pm [Dine in]

Been here twice. They always start us off w/ comp warm pita @ hummus. Yum, especially when u're starving.
Their food is good. We've tried fried calamari: lightly crispy and tasty. Their spinach "spring roll" was not my thing cuz they used feta cheese or some sort. The spicy chicken ceasar salad is recommended: tasty, a lil spicy and goes well w/ the salad. The calamari w/ ceasar salad tasted like Chinese food which I didn't mind. Their garlic shrimp dinner (inc/ rice, veg & potato) was yummy. A friend ordered the salmon dinner and it was huge. I forgot to ask if it was good or not.
I'm not into Greek food but this an exception.

Submitted Sunday, October 4, 2009 - 12:54pm [Dine in]

I was happy that they had Hon's in Coquitlam cuz I was around that area and craving for Buddha's Feast w/ crispy noodles. But boy was I immediately disappointed. The way the restaurant was set up feels like I was in Hong Kong or something. It was disorganized and all over the place. Their Buddha's Feast's veggies were not fresh and limited and they used a different kind of noodles. It didn't taste right. It seemed like they ran out of ingredients so they just winged it. Terrible.

I only recommend the Robson Location.

It was a warm sunny day and after walking around QE Park, we decided to drop by for some coffee & snacks. It was approx 2pm and the patio was 75% full. Their patio has the full view of the flower garden and the city. It was gorgeous. It reminds us that we live in one of the most beautiful cities.
Service was good. All staffs were friendly. Our water boy filled our cups frequently.
We ordered Crab Cakes, Cheesecake, Stuffed Mushrooms, Salmon Burger and coffee. The crab cakes tasted OK. Cheesecake was smooth and fruity. The stuffed mushrooms were rich and creamy. The Salmon burger was made perfectly.
Overall, it was a nice experience.
