Narita Sushi100 Schoolhouse Street, #408, Coquitlam
Great Sushi, Nice Staff
Submitted Wednesday, October 20, 2010 - 1:43pm [Take-out]

I work in the area and have started using Narita Sushi as our local sushi locale. The sushi is great and the staff are very friendly. Their prices are pretty much the same as everyone else's. I often call in an order and it's ready for pickup in 10 minutes. Granted, I would like to have a wider selection of more 'creative' sushi rolls, but if you're getting your regular sushi fare these guys are great.

Jokers3256 St. Johns Street, Port Moody
I drive from North Van to Port Moody for Joker's Pizza
Submitted Sunday, January 17, 2010 - 1:08pm [Dine in]

We happened to be in Port Moody yesterday evening and a friend recommended Joker's Pizza which was around the corner from there home. So we popped by and ordered the Evil Beef (Spicy beef, onion, Italian sausage & tomato sauce). The menu clearly stated 'this is a thin crust pizza' (for those of you that complained about thin crust) which I don't normally care for but thought we'd try it anyways.

I saw they have certificates on the wall from a couple of culinary institutes (don't see that often) and they've apparently won a medal of some sort for culinary excellence. I also noticed the large mixer used for making the pizza dough by hand. When I ordered the pizza they hand pressed the dough and made it on the spot. They had a few orders ahead of mine so I waited about 25 minutes for the pizza - definitely worth waiting for!

It was a spicy pizza but the spice was more about the flavour than the 'heat'. Having grown up in Vancouver where there seems to be a pizza place on every corner THIS IS THE BEST PIZZA I'VE EVER HAD IN CANADA! I've already told about 9 people about it since last night, and I'm going back there from North Vancouver with a buddy of mine just so we can experience the flavour again. Definitely a gold mine to have found this place...gold mine...right next to the Golden Spike Pub... ;)

Red Onion2028 41st Avenue West, Vancouver
still love the food, service is declining
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 6:49pm [Dine in]

been going to the Red Onion since the mid '80s'. The food's always been top notch to me - I always ask for 'extra sauce' on my burger and that always nails it for my taste. I find the fries always seem to be broken bits n pieces though and that's a downer.

it seems that the service has always been a downward spiral over the years. While they used to have excellent, personable and efficient waitresses it seems they've degraded to grungy dressed "I got better things to do than be here" servers - and that's a constant each time I visit. and, they always forget to bring the little extras to your table that you ask for when ordering your food.

High Boat Cafe MarinaFt Forbes Avenue, North Vancouver
good food, decent price
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 6:38pm [Dine in]

went there for brunch on the weekend - had the special. great food!
super cheap too. It's a greasy spoon look with a fine dining cook (didn't mean to make that rhyme)

serve yourself coffee - other breakfast nooks have the same thing so that wasn't a big deal. better than having a waitress ask to refill it just because you've had 2 sips, upsetting the delicate balance of milk/sugar to coffee that one needs to achieve...

De Dutch Pannekoek House657 West 3rd Street, North Vancouver
good food. high price. long waits
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 6:30pm [Dine in]

don't get me wrong - I love the pannecoek restaurants. But why do they always have to be little hole in the walls when they know they can fill a huge location? It's usually what keeps us from going, knowing there's a 30 minute wait before being seated, than another 20 minutes for the food. Coquitlam has the right idea, they've got a HUGE seating area.

Prices have increased a lot in the last few years and it's no a longer a 'great deal'. We've found other places to go to that are just as nice with no huge lineups.

Boston Pizza1078 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
BP - not what it used to be
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 6:26pm [Dine in]

I used to go there with friends back in the 90s for really great appies n stuff. it started going downhill when they introduced the pasta dishes - no zest, no salt, no spice ...might as well be serving it in a hospital for people that need to watch their sodium intake.

I went there a couple of weeks ago - I see they now offer jumbalaya like other restaurants, so I tried that. mehh... I found myself 'wanting' to like it because I used to get the appies there 10 years ago, but I just couldn't bring myself to a happy level and enjoy the meal. It's overpriced and the food really has gone down. Time to focus on what they're good at - appies n pizza and stop trying to be another earl's or cactus club.

Curry Feast1265 Marine Drive, North Vancouver
we love curry feast in north vancouver!
Submitted Sunday, November 23, 2008 - 5:57pm [Dine in]

we were looking to try the new indian curry restuarant out - I'd seen the sign that said it was $9.99 for all you can eat lunch and $14.99 for all you can eat dinner (during the week). we went for dinner there with a couple of friends for the ayce menu. the food was amazing - about a dozen choices too. I noticed the other posts about liquor license - we drinks beer when you can have a mango lassi?! :P

the place is relatively small but easily some of the best indian food I've ever had. we had our baby with us and the manager came over to play with the baby for a bit, and even one of the cooks from the open kitchen walked over to say hi to the baby. after dinner we chatted with the cook who explained to us (we could see the whole kitchen) how they make the naan in the special oven - very friendly staff.

in short, great food, great people, great price. didn't care abut the liquor license because we only drink lassi (yogurt/mango smoothie) when we go for indian food.

Top Gun Hot Pot4500 Kingsway, #2228, Burnaby
all you can eat hotpot - good stuff
Submitted Sunday, September 28, 2008 - 9:14pm [Dine in]

we read the reviews here so decided to check it out. We made a reservation for 530, but apparently that's when they open so it wasn't necessary yet.
Ordered the split broth (1 side spicy, 1 side satay broth) - the food was great. I lived in Central China for 3 years (Wuhan) where the food is usually spicy (ma la), with lots of Siquan influence. Although this is a Cantonese restaurant (I hear they do dim sum) we thought the hot pot was what were were used to in China; the dipping sauce and food were all top notch. 2 hours blew past quickly and when we left at 730 there were a lot of people taking up all the waiting area bench seats - get there early or make a reservation.

Can't wait to go back with our friends!
