food is okay, better now, but service only improved a bit

i live right near the jolly coachman, so i have been a few times.
the first time was the 'old' managment/kitchen.
after they re did it, i tried again.
new bathrooms, that was nice too.
though the service still is moslty pretty slow. the staff seem like they could care less on some days, and smiley other days.
i have had the steak and prawns, great. burgers are pretty darned good. breakfast is so so. depends on what you have, i think.
try it out, but only when you are not too hungry, who knows when you will get it!?

this place has changed names, and owners. it is now sushi house.
i have to say i did not expect much the first time i went in. a little place in a strip mall.. hmm..
BUT they surprised me. while the food prep is not super speedy, the wait is worth it. besides, i don't mind waiting for GOOD food.
i have not had tons of take out from here, and trust me, you want to get take out. rather small and cramped inside. everthing i tried was good. of note the pumpkin roll was awesome! you have to try that if you go in.
one nice thing, if you are new to sushi they have pictures of all the food items.
the value is great, you get quality food, fair portion and at a good price.
well worth trying it if you have not before.

pretty place to eat, too bad the food was not as good

i can't say the food is bad, it isn't. it is just kinda boring. the service was good, but the best thing about the place was that it is newer and prettier. i would rather go to akasaka, even though it is an older building.
if you are hungry, and don't have high expectations, this is a good a place as any to eat. everything is what you expect, just not above that.
still, at least it is clean, and the staff smile at you. that counts for something in my books.

I have been to akasaka many times over the years. i have never been disapointed in the food. service ranges from okay to great. mostly on the better side. i have never been disapointed in it, in any case.
now the food, that is why i go back! mushroom Shitake, awesome!though a bit less mushrooms over the years, i still love the stuff. get one to share, it is good!
viking roll, nummers, agadasha tofu, spice, super, bc roll, good, crazy boy roll, yummy, well, really, it is all pretty good.
i will go back and back again, they never fail to make my tastebuds happy :)
patio, good, indoors, not bad. take out, great.

i have tried Enjoy a few times, i guess i am a glutton for punishment.
the food is greasy and bland, the service is horrid and overall the place is not terribly clean.
If the food was just a bit better and the service way better, than for the price, it might be worth going there.
i think i would even pick rotten ronnies over this place. at least there you have a chance of getting good service!
with so many GOOD places to eat in pitt meadows, i do not know how they stay open.
