Pho Hoang Tung100 Schoolhouse Street, #401, Coquitlam
We crave the Pho here
Submitted Friday, August 6, 2010 - 10:59am [Dine in]

My husband (a chef) and I (a foodie) recently moved to the area from the Fairview area in Vancouver and missed the abundance of good Pho places there. That is, until we stumbled upon Pho Hoang Tung, which we now visit weekly. They use fresh ingredients, the soup base for their Pho is excellent, and they prepare their dishes with obvious care. This is one of the few restaurants overall where we've found the food is of consistently good quality. The servers there are always friendly and genuine and they keep the place neat and clean. I don't usually write reviews unless a place is really good or really bad and they definitely fall into the former category. Hope to see you there!

Burgoo3096 Main Street, Vancouver
rustically comfortable
Submitted Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 4:07pm [Dine in]

I wasn't happy about waiting 20 minutes on weeknight, while I could see many open tables not being cleaned up fast enough, but I concede I'm an impatient person who'd been looking forward to coming here ever since I learned of it's opening. I had the Irish stew and it was fantastically tasty. It was a huge serving too, so be sure to come with an appetite. I wanted to try many other things, but will have to leave that for next time. The service was good, and although the rustic nature of the decor would be more suitable for Whistler, it's comfortable.

upscale whitespot maybe
Submitted Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 3:54pm [Dine in]

I came here on a Wednesday night with my boyfriend. For a place that calls itself upscale, it is decidedly casual. The menu is boring in having to choose a protein and then pick miscellaneous side dishes. The food then arrived on scratched up plates with a tired piece of lettuce for a garnish. The server was adequately friendly, but the overall service was extremely slow from start to finish even when we mentioned we were in a hurry to pay the bill. I have to admit the decor is solid, but it needs an overhaul. It hasn't changed at all for a more than a few years. This place is fine if you want to just hang out and eat some appies.

Toshi Sushi181 E 16th Avenue, Vancouver
Valuable
Submitted Sunday, September 28, 2008 - 9:48pm [Dine in]

I ate at Toshi last night and had a great dinner of sushi, maki sushi, and spicy agedashi tofu. For the price, the food is excellent. I've been several times and it is consistently very good. Too many reviewers base their entire rating on service, especially when they perceive it to be negative . They haven't separated the food experience from the service experience. From brief conversations with my servers here, I've learned that it's always full, from open to close everyday, so their main focus is just trying to stay on top of orders. In any case, Toshi is about value. If you value high-quality food, but don't mind 3-star service and ambiance this is the place for you. If you're impatient, whiney, and think that all restaurants should treat you like a god, then it's not.
