Miya Japanese Restaurant1175 Johnson St, #360, Coquitlam
Word of mouth is getting around with this place

I tried this place a month or so ago when it opened. The decor is quite pleasing to the eye with lot of use of traditional wood. music was also very calming. The food was quite good, except for the tempura which used too much batter, other than that.. quite perfect.

At that time, we were the only customers there.

Tried them on friday night yesterday and it started getting packed. Good to see that business is picking up for them. I was a little worried they would close down if business did not pick up. Competition is getting hyper fierce in the area when it comes to Japanese restaurants. So many.... Sushi town, Gin Mi, Miya, Sushi Nori, Ashahi, Nagano, Ginza Sushi, Osmanu shusi, Nagasakiya (closed a few weeks ago), etc.

Decided to try this place after reading 1st review. Service was excellent. I just finished a 10km run and was super thirsty. The waitress refilled my glass 4 times, and finally gave me a bigger glass. All this without prompting which is unusual for asian restaurants.

The Sashimi "add on" appetizer to lunch was fairly generous for $4.50. Sashimi was fresh. odered any roll + sashimi lunch special ($10). Negitoro roll was fresh tasting.

Nice touch was instead of the regular cheap hard candy, they give bite sized chocolate bars.

There have been a few new japanese restaurants opening in the area (sushi mori, Miya) and competition is fierce, not everyone will be left standing, forcing the old restaurants like Nagasakiya (which badly needed a face lift) to close down. It will be left to be seen if even Nagano will survive, as the new ones can offer a better experience at a lower price.

Fulin Hot Pot Restaurant3025 Lougheed Hwy, #780, Coquitlam
Superb Value / Great Atmosphere

My wife, myself and 8 year old daughter eat here frequently. I used to go for AYCE, but as I hit 40 my appetite was not like it was when I was in my 20s so I find better value in the set plates. Fulin has only AYCE on Fridays/Weekends, but if you go during the weekday you can order set plates. You can easily feed a hungry 3 (wife/me and kid) for under $23 (tax included). The set plates range from 9.99 to 12.50 for the Delux. I usually get the Deluxe + the beef seafood for a good variety. For $23, you get 2 plates of beef, 1 plate of lamb, Oysters, Shrimp, Fish, beef balls, dumplings, mussles, loads of fresh vegetables, mushrooms, soft cuttlefish/squid, unlimited free soup, 2 choice of sauces (love the Satay sauce) , and loads of fresh wheat noodles (heavenly). If you are lucky, you also get free delicious ice barley tea (so good) and oranges at the end of the meal. Also for some reason they don't tax as much (maybe there is no tax since it is raw uncooked food?), Anyways, I always end up paying with tip total about $27 to fully satisfy my whole family. The food is fresh, the location is clean and classy (not a dive), and value is incredible. Trust me, go on a week day, and order the set plates... By far the best value hot pot around.
