Fresh Slice9855 Austin Rd, Burnaby
ok pizza
Submitted Thursday, October 24, 2013 - 6:48am [Dine in]

this place is located in the food court at lougheed town centre. Decided to have 2 slices: the deluxe and bacon pizza. it was an average size, thinner crust $1.79 each slice. the deluxe consisted of green pepper, pepperoni, beef balls, cheese & the bacon one also had sliced mushrooms on it. Its supposed to be healthier for you compared to pizza hut pizza. It was fairly fresh tasting and decent topping but I still prefer the deep dish pan pizza hut pizza as their crust is tastier and more filling..

inconsistent food and service
Submitted Tuesday, July 2, 2013 - 7:06am [Dine in]

We went for lunch about a month ago and had a couple of sashimi bento boxes. The boxes arrived fairly quickly and the salmon and tuna sashimi pieces were very large, tasted fresh, ice cold & had a very creamy texture. The chicken teriyaki was good too. But this time we went for an early dinner around 5:30 pm on Canada Day, the place was mainly filled with younger people, perhaps locals, so we sat ourselves down. The girl who took our order did not smile and looked very mad or something, seriously. Usually you get tea with meals but all she gave us was cold water after I asked for it. I usually substitute the included California roll with the vegetarian yam roll instead as don't like avocado. We've eaten here for about 6 times now and that has never been a problem but this time she said oh that will be an extra dollar. I told her we had just eaten here in May and ordered the exact thing last time but she said NO! whatever.. So the teriyaki chicken was super dry, probably overcooked, not moist like it usually is and when I bit into a piece of tuna sashimi, there was some kind of white muscle in it as I tried to chew it but it had the consistency of chicken tendon or something? so I had to pull several strands of it out of it as too chewy to digest .. also the sashimi wasn't as cold as it usually is, it was just room temperature. The salmon was better but not by much. the only decent thing in the box was the 4 pieces of tempura. When we asked for the Styrofoam boxes for the rest of the food to go, the other waitress asked 1 box or 2? What a stupid question! We had 2 bento boxes so why would you even mix 2 people's food into 1 box? It was weird but on several occasions I looked at her she also did not look happy at all to be there. The food and atmosphere was so different this time than the times we were there before.. Maybe there was a different chef that day as it was a holiday? maybe we'll just stick to going there for lunch, not dinner and see if we get friendlier servers and better food the next time??

excellent sashimi in bento box
Submitted Saturday, May 18, 2013 - 5:35pm [Dine in]

We had lunch here today when it opened at 11:30 am and sat ourselves down. Its just a little restaurant and the atmosphere is okay. They have lunch special bento boxes for $6.99 which is really good value as the portion size is pretty decent. We both had the chicken & sashimi (4 pieces) bento boxes for $10.99 which consists of teriyaki chicken over a bed of rice, assorted tempura (1 prawn & a few vegy pieces), The tuna and salmon sashimi were very cold, fresh & of a creamy texture which was so delicious! You also get 6 large pieces of California roll and I decided on the yam rolls instead which are tasty. If you want miso soup,its $1.00. It doesn't take long to get your food. We will go back again soon...

small piece of fish
Submitted Saturday, May 11, 2013 - 6:41pm [Dine in]

I had the one piece fish and chips for about $11.50, my partner had the steak sandwich for about $14.00.
the fries were the battered kind so they were pretty crispy. He was happy with his steak sandwich which came with sauted mushrooms. I was not impressed with my fish n chips, it came in what looked like a large size dim sum bamboo steamer which we thought was kind of strange since it was fish n chips, not Chinese food.. oh well.. I got a fairly small size piece of fish which was okay but the batter was overfried and too crunchy, not tender. not sure if I will be having the fish n chips again as not really good value for the price...the positive thing is that the view was nice though and you can see the float planes take off and land..

average different tasting dim sum
Submitted Sunday, May 5, 2013 - 5:49pm [Dine in]

We came here for dim sum today for the first time. Its a small restaurant, not too many tables. Waited about 15 mins for a table for two. Sat down and it took awhile for someone to take our order. They don't have dim sum carts here so you just tell the waiter what you want. It seemed to take a long time to get our first dish which was deep fried shrimp spring roll. you get 4 halves of shrimp filling and something that looked like seaweed inside the roll. it came piping hot but was just average. We also had the pork siu mi which had some diced Chinese mushroom mixed in the pork filling and something which tasted like dried salted fish mixed in which we did not care for as regular pork dumpling usually just has shrimp or shrimp/pork inside. We didn't care for the piece of shrimp on top of it either. We also had the steamed black bean/garlic pork spareribs which were really average tasting and not authentic. The mini sticky rice (3) were a pretty decent size and tasted okay.. Overall the average price was about $4.25 per dish but due to the extremely slow service and weird taste/texture of the food, we will not return....

just average dim sum
Submitted Sunday, March 10, 2013 - 3:56pm [Dine in]

We went there for a sunday dim sum lunch and our server appeared grumpy, didn't smile and when we asked for an explanation of a dish, she got pretty snarly with us.. Its a fairly samll restaurant and you have to tick which items you want (no carts). We waited for quite some time before the first dish came: shrimp dumplings, they were average in size and each consisted of several pieces of small whole shrimps. I prefer the larger prawns but these were just ok. Then we had some steamed beef balls, the consistency was good but missing the distinctive orange peel flavour which is usually used to flavour this dish. The pork dumping (sie mie) was ok, not that flavourful but came with chopped chinese mushrooms which some might like, it was a bit blank overall.. then we had the deep fried pork balls (ham sau gok) those were nice and hot but pretty pale looking and the inside had minced pork.. overall it was ok but don't think we will return as lots of other better dim sum restaurants around...

small plates of dim sum & loud recital music blaring away
Submitted Saturday, May 12, 2012 - 7:02pm [Dine in]

Due to the positive reviews we decided to have dim sum here. We arrived arounnd 11:15 am, the place was about half full, the other half of the restaurant had a wall/divider running down the middle of the restaurant as there was some kind of recital happening. Apparently this happens regularly as they have a lot of weddings/events here. I prefer eating in peace or enjoying a conversation but the piano recital was so loud it was a distraction while trying to eat. None the less I wanted to see how the dim sum was, we had the usual dishes - steamed pork dumpling, steamed shrimp dumpling, shrimp rice roll with soy sauce and fried radish cake. First of all, only a few dim sum carts rolled by the whole time and all the dim sum was lukewarm at best. We like our dim sum piping hot, fresh from the steamers but all of our steamed dishes were not hot or even at room temperature. The size of the dim sum was quite small when compared to other dim sum restaurants we have gone to and yet the price was higher than average. The only thing different about this place were the high back chairs. For 4 plates of dim sum it came to $21.15 (which included a $2 charge for tea). Total $23.69. We can find better tasting, piping hot, larger pieces of dim sum at other restaurants, so don't believe we will be returning.

Church's Chicken555 North Road, #5, Coquitlam
crunchy batter but not seasoned enough
Submitted Monday, April 23, 2012 - 8:33pm [Take-out]

We had a 2 piece chicken dinner on the weekend (drumstick & thigh). Took it home and the thighs were a decent size, it was still hot, fairly juicy with a thick crispy crunchy batter, the way we like it. We didn't want spicey, just regular but found the chicken skin was under seasoned say compared to KFC. The chicken pieces are larger than KFC's, although I've found the KFC at the Metrotown location had good size thighs. The fries on the other hand were pale, limp but we ate them all anyway. They could have used a few more minutes of cooking. If they put a bit more spices to the batter, it would make such a huge difference.

please do NOT have the steamed shrimp dumplings !
Submitted Sunday, January 15, 2012 - 7:43pm [Dine in]

We went here for the first time for dim sum on the weekend. The place looked old and smelled kind of musty. We were seated in the middle of the hallway. We ordered steamed shrimp dumplings, pork dumplings, spareibs, & fried radish cake. The only dish that tasted like normal dim sum were the pork dumplings. Everything else did not taste like it should have. The worst dish was the steamed shrimp dumplilngs (ha gow). It was horrendous as smelled fishy, had a bad consistency, did not have a straight shrimp filling but tasted like a mixed filling of something, the rice coverering fell apart and did not taste good either. Dim sum should be piping hot and these dishes were not. There are so many excellent dim sum places elsewhere so we definitely will NOT be returning here even if their plates of dim sum were only $2.75 each.

Submitted Monday, October 31, 2011 - 4:30pm [Dine in]

We had breakfast here last on a week day, you seat yourself so we picked a booth. The place hasn't changed in years but we don't mind as its quite cozy. You see all the old photos taken in the 1960's and the furniture looks the same. The service was ok too. Breakfast was very cheap and we were full. Later I bought some of their famous beef meat pies, flying saucers (giant almond paste cookies), mocha cream shortbread cookies, cake slices.. Everything there is amazingly good and tastes the same as it did 40 years ago.. I always try to return when I visit Victoria.

Submitted Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 4:05pm [Dine in]

We went here for the first time on Sunday, had to wait in line for about 15 mins. My partner had the eggs benny and I had eggs with sausage, that came with lots of fried potato wedges & toast. I found the scrambled eggs a bit too runny and soft, I prefer Ihop/Denny eggs that have a more heavier texture. The eggs benny was about $12.00 but there was lots (almost too much) fresh fruit: half a banana, half a kiwi, half an orange, apple slices, a wedge of pineapple & cantalope, a strawberry and lots of fried potatos. We were full after eating that but not sure if will return since they don't serve pancakes here and lunch is not an option on the weekends...

dry chicken
Submitted Monday, September 26, 2011 - 6:38am [Dine in]

We had dinner here on the weekend and was seated at a table in the centre. It was fairly busy on a Saturday night. Ordered the combo dinner for 2 ( $21.85) which consisted of wonton soup, egg rolls, lemon chicken, sweet n sour pork, bbbq pork fried rice. You get 8 wontons which were ok buy the broth was too salty and did not taste that good. The lemon chicken was a good portion and deep fried but the chicken breast was hard and dry and tasted like it had precooked earlier. It was not moist like it should have been. The sweet n sour pork was just ok and did not have enough sauce so that made it dry, so we had to ask for a plate of sauce but the sauce was lukewarm and did not enhance the dish after we poured it over the dish. The rice was white and consisted of bits of pork but the flavor was not very good. Fried rice should have some kind of oyster/soy sauce to flavour so if you order the combo you end up getting this very basic plain looking so called fried rice. The egg rolls were vegy rolls, no meat inside. Its probably better to order their regular dishes (not combo) so may try some different dishes next time.. Overall the prices are reasonable and the service is ok..

perfect prime rib
Submitted Thursday, September 22, 2011 - 2:03pm [Dine in]

We had dinner here for the first time on a Saturday night. This is a newer Keg and the atmosphere with the lights turned down low was very nice. We had made reservations for 2 and were seated at a nice sized booth behind a giant barrel which they have throughout the restaurant. Our servers were polite, friendly and helpful throughout the evening. We decided to have the 10 oz classic prime rib dinner and a regular 10 oz prime rib. I like my prime rib medium and it was seasoned and cooked to perfection as always with a nice pink color and it melted in our mouths with just the right amount of marbling. I had fries with it but next time will get a baked potato instead. The au jus and warm bread was good too. It was my boyfriend's birthday so he got a free Billy Miner pie (mocha ice cream drizzled in caramel sauce & sliced almonds in a chocolatey wafer crust). It was large enough to share and quite refreshing. When we have a craving for prime rib we always go back to the Keg...

their version of "au jus" is watered down chicken stock
Submitted Sunday, September 4, 2011 - 8:40pm [Dine in]

We had a party of 4 for dinner here at this location on the weekend. You don't really get a view of the water but the view we got was a view of the parking lot. A couple of us had the prime rib with au jus.. I had fingerling potatoes and it came with a few green beans. The dish of au jus was a light shade of yellow/white, I was wondering why it was so pale looking as that did not look like normal au jus which is usually a deep brown color that contains beef bits, beef stock, etc.. The prime rib was just okay, but definitely not half as juicy or succulent as the Keg's prime rib which comes with a dish of delicious deep brown flavorful au jus. So then I dipped a piece of meat into the supposedly "au jus", that was a big mistake.. It had NO flavour whatsover and tasted like leftover watery chicken stock from a can. No kidding !! I don't know if they serve this au jus all the time since it was our first time eating there but I will never order this dish again and probably never come here again for any dish. The supposedly "seared" cod looked and tasted like it was steamed. There is no value in coming here, if the food was good it would be worth the prices, but the prices were high and the food was very badly prepared. There are so many other better seafood/prime rib restaurants to go to than this one..

good fish n chips
Submitted Monday, August 8, 2011 - 6:25am [Dine in]

this is our 2nd review which is better than our previous review 3 years ago...Went here on the weekend, waited in line about 15 mins to put in our order then waited about another 5 or 10 mins to receive our food. There was quite a long lineup but it was worth the wait though on this hot sunny summer day. Ordered 2 Large Fish n chips (a large is $11.99 for 2.5 pieces of beautifully lightly battered fish, hot & and very crispy. You can take as many lemon wedges as you wish. The fish was fresh tasting and the batter just melted in our mouths. Sure you can go to other "all you eat" fishnchip restaurants for the same price but the quality & freshness just does not compare and how much fish can you actually eat anyway...

excellent service but just ok chow mein
Submitted Friday, August 5, 2011 - 6:28am [Dine in]

We come here once in awhile as the place has booths and the seating is quite comfortable. The host/cashier is very friendly and provides good service. Ordered the beef with vegetable chow mein. There were chinese greens along with some sliced beef but the beef did not taste that fresh. It could have been cooked previously then just added last minute. I prefer my meat fried on the spot. The beef was sliced thinner than normal and tasted like roast beef. We prefer thicker slices of beef with bits of garlic and with a chewier texture. The beef gravy didn't taste asian, more like a westernized sauce. We passed by Kents Kitchen in chinatown, that place is basically a take out place as the atmosphere inside is very basic.. a few tables for dine in .. if you don't mind the previous customer leaving their bones/plates on the tables... the food there is really varied, cheap and tasty, but if you go there you go for the food, not the atmosphere as there really isn't any.....

Lots of beef in the chow mein, thick congee but the sliced chicken in the congee did not taste as fresh as it could be. The beef was tender but preferred a thicker sauce. Came with several fortune cookies. The crispy noodle chow mein dishes are always good.Its probably better eating in the restaurant but overall the food was above average..

We come here regularly for quarter pounders, chicken nuggets, Big Macs, fish burgers, their hot crispy fries & apple pies. Usually we come for dinner or lunch.

We had a couple of burgers at this location yesterday for dinner and was greeted by a friendly worker. Ordered the single beef patty burger with fries plus a regular burger without cheeze. the burger bun was lukewarm, but the beef patty did not taste "freshly fried" but greasy, cold, tasteless, dry & overcooked.. nothing like the freshly made Wendy's burgers we used to remember years ago. Maybe its this location? I don't think we'll eat at this location again..
