Namoo Sushi3003 St. Johns Street, 101, Port Moody
Fresh sushi and great service
Submitted Friday, February 25, 2011 - 2:15pm [Take-out]

Had a massive sushi craving today and decided to stop at Sushi California on Lougheed & Austin since it was on my way. It was 11:26 am and as I walked in I noticed a sign that said "open at 11:30 am". So I asked if I could still order something seeing it was 4 minutes early and they said no. Fine then, if they don't want my business (c'mon, 4 minutes????). It wasn't really my first choice to be here but it was en route. So, I left and decided to continue along my commute and ended up trying Namoo Sushi for the first time. I opened the door and was cheerfully greeted by all of the staff. I ordered a spicy salmon roll and california roll. Service was quick, friendly, and the sushi was definitely fresh and tasty. I will definitely come back to this place over others in the area. I am excited to go back and try more, and am glad to find my now "go to" sushi restaurant in this area.

Another option instead of Milestones or Cactus Club
Submitted Saturday, May 22, 2010 - 6:49pm [Dine in]

Tried out this location the other day not sure what to expect...but...surprisingly was impressed with the tastiness of the food. Had the Ocean Wise potato-crusted Halibut with the "cowgirl" salad - zesty apple-miso dressing was truly deelish. Friends had other entrees and were though that their food was definitly good enough to come back again. The brunch menu although limited looks interesting, will have to give that a try. Great little spot in a great little neighbourhood.

Soup Plus1102 Austin Ave., Coquitlam
Belly warming soup & sandwich
Submitted Wednesday, December 30, 2009 - 11:51pm [Dine in]

Wanted to try this place out after reading the rave reviews and always curiously checking it out during my daily drives along Austin. My DH & I had the soup and sandwich combo. DELICIOUS! I tried the coconut beef soup which was creamy, flavourful, with just a tiny bit of kick to it. And my less adventurous hubbie had the vegetable soup, also good. We both had it with the sandwich special which was loaded with veggies and meat on soft seemingly homemade bread. I would definitely come back again, it was so good. One minor little comment was that the meat in the sandwich was on the saltier side, but I usually don't add much salt to my food, so perhaps it was just a personal thing...but all in all truly worth the return visit.

Mezbaan3499 Kingsway, Vancouver
Definitely worth a return visit
Submitted Saturday, August 22, 2009 - 10:43pm [Dine in]

Thought we'd try this place out the other day with friends as we had been looking for a good Indian restaurant in the area. Yes, the buffet has a small selection of curries etc. but well worth it, as everything was freshly made and tasty. The samosas were crisp and warm. The naan, oh so fluffy. The best thing is that we allI left feeling full and very satisfied. For $7.95, you can't beat it. If you're looking for somewhere to fill your curry fix, this is the place to go. It's not a fancy restaurant like its counterpart across the street, but much more cozy and intimate for a small group of friends to get together and share some good times over curry. Lunch buffet is from 11:30 - 2:30. The a la carte dinner menu looks well-priced and interesting. Gotta go back to try it.

Honey Doughnuts and Goodies4373 Gallant Ave, North Vancouver
Not sure what the hype is
Submitted Friday, August 21, 2009 - 9:43pm [Dine in]

After hearing all the raves about Honey's doughnuts thought that we'd go give it a try today. Well, I had the maple and my sweetie had the choco. Given he is a chocoholic, he thought it was great. I myself didn't really see what the big deal was about it. Kind of like a greasy lump of fried cake with maple icing on top? Bought a muffin to go for later and that was pretty good. Breakfast looks good, would be willing to try that next time we're there but I think once is enough for the doughnut.

Tenkai Japanese Restaurant1147 Austin Avenue, Coquitlam
Fairly tasty, cold environment
Submitted Saturday, April 18, 2009 - 9:59pm [Dine in]

Came here with a friend for a girls night out dinner. We were both freezing by the cranked up A/C (or no heat, whichever it was) and when brought some tea, was disapponted that the tea was the same temperature as the restaurant.

The food was not bad, we both had the bentei tray with sushi, tempura (yum) and teriyaki. We probably could have been more adventurous as it looked like there were some pretty interesting sushi rolls to try next time. BUT, being freezing cold, we both craved a warm meal with soup rather than just sushi. Needless to say, there was a lot of food - we both got full quickly, but it was nothing that special.

I would probably go back again, but it wouldn't be my first choice. Either that or I'll wear a turtleneck and down jacket next time.

Horizons100 Centennial Way, Burnaby
Tasty Brunch
Submitted Sunday, February 15, 2009 - 10:14pm [Dine in]

Went there for a post-Valentine's Day brunch with the sweetie. We had the traditional breakfast and buttermilk blueberry pancakes. Dee-licious. The turkey sausage in the traditional breakfast was tasty and not greasy. The pancakes were melt-in-your-mouth delightful with honey whipped cream. The scrambled eggs with chives,a bit bland however. Now, the dishes were not anything new and exciting, but filling and delicious, and who can complain when you're surrounded by that view?

Into the Fire Cafe1046A Austin Ave, Coquitlam
Nothing special
Submitted Saturday, July 5, 2008 - 10:13pm [Dine in]

My husband and I visited this cafe for breakfast upon curiosity after reading/hearing about Craig's Cafe (former name/owner). It was nothing special. Had the eggs,toast,bacon, potatoes for $4.99, and I guess not bad for the price...but only got a small handful of potatoes. The service was nothing special, we had to ask for coffee refills and jam for the toast. Don't feel the urge to return.

Sushi California501A North Rd, Coquitlam
Dirty restaurant, mediocre sushi
Submitted Tuesday, November 13, 2007 - 2:42pm [Dine in]

Just ordered sushi to go from this place and found it disgustingly dirty to even just sit in the waiting chair. I ordered california roll and salmon roll (tastes o.k.) but waited 25 minutes for it. It was sitting on the counter forever and the waitresses seemed to just look at it, pass it by, then one would check it, then leave...then another would put it in a bag...then leave...and then finally I had to go ask them if it was ready and they looked confused. Poor, poor, service. Would recommend Bentei Sushi in North Burnaby waaay better sushi, waaay better service. Not worth a return visit.
