Jokers3256 St. Johns Street, Port Moody
Still the Best Piza Establsment in the Lower Mainland
Submitted Monday, November 1, 2010 - 11:05pm [Dine in]

Since my last review of this exemplary pizza eatery in Port Moody, it continues to be the very best purveyor of high quality pizzas and pasta in the area.

The proprietor, Reza, is no mere line cook but a full-fledged and decorated chef whose skills in the culinary realm are beyond reproach. Nor only does he turn out highly edible pizza creations but his food is truly exemplary with imaginative flavors and combinations that only a chef could create.

If you wish to experience something truly out of the ordinary, give Jokers pizza a try. You will be amazed at the quality and the originality of the fare! And the price is right, too!

All Thai'd Up Restaurant2636 Kingsway Ave., Port Coquitlam
Mediocre Thai restaurant experience in PoCo
Submitted Sunday, September 12, 2010 - 11:28pm [Dine in]

Having read some favorable reviews of this establishment we decided to give it a try.

It is located in a very poor spot on a busy road in the middle of an industrial area. We ended up parking around the corner by the Islamic mosque.

The atmosphere in the restaurant was not very appetizing. The place appeared old and worn with a Thai facade in a failing attempt to invoke appropriate ambiance.

The service was a bit slow due to the fact there was only one lone waitress looking after everyone. She did not re-fill the water glasses unless summoned back to do so.

The food was OK but nothing special. The peanut sauce on the slightly tough satay was very heavy, almost like peanut butter.

The vegetables were a bit tough. The flavors were for the most part authentic. The rice pilaf was OK.

I would certainly not classify this establishment as best for Thai food in the Tri-Cities and would consider Chada Thai much better if a little pricier, not to mention the fact that Chada Thai is better located, far less dingy and with better service.

Would we return? Simply put, no.

Roast Bistro Cafe & Grill22456 Lougheed Hwy, #102, Maple Ridge
Absolutely Outstanding Bistro in Maple Ridge!
Submitted Friday, July 30, 2010 - 9:51pm [Dine in]

After reading numerous positive reviews of this restaurant over the past few months I was desirous of dining here.

I dined here on 29 July 2010 and had the garden salad, the pulled pork sandwich and the Philly cheese steak sandwich. The quality of all three items was outstanding. I have eaten pulled pork all over North America and the pulled pork sandwich at Roast Bistro easily compared to the best of them. The cole slaw was spicy, tasty and very, very good, so good, in fact, that I had three helpings! The Philly cheese steak was well seasoned, tasty and overall wonderful.

Additionally, as if the quality of the food were not enough, the service was very attentive, competent and genuinely involved. I got the impression that the server was GENUINELY interested in whether or not I was enjoying the dishes prepared and served, which I was. This degree of genuineness is rare in the restaurant business and was highly appreciated by this diner. It was clear from the moment I walked in the door that the chef/owner and his assistants enjoyed what they were doing and had the strong desire to see it that their patrons were happy with both the fare and the service.

By co-incidence, I had just returned from a visit to the United States where I had the opportunity to sample a number of BBQ establishments. I will tell you on no uncertain terms that the pulled pork sandwich at Roast Bistro was as good or better than the best that I ate south of the border. The chef and his employees are to be highly commended on the quality of the food at this establishment.

I am desirous of returning to Roast Bistro to sample more of their wonderful offerings. I strongly suggest you do the same.

We are fortunate indeed to have a restaurant of this caliber in the GVRD area.

Browns Socialhouse215 Newport Drive, Port Moody
Sufficiently good restaurant to come back.
Submitted Friday, July 30, 2010 - 9:38pm [Dine in]

I dined at this restaurant on the evening of 30 July 2010.

I had the hot wings appetizer plus the double patty burger as the main course.

The quality of the food was average to good, not outstanding. The service was good. The ambiance was that of a sports bar with football vignettes/TV and a young, trendy crowd. The noise level was high and this is not the sort of place you would take a date to unless she was profoundly into football.

The server was pleasant, attentive and proficient. By no means was she inappropriately attired or lascivious. The comments of the previous reviewer, to wit, that "Both my friend and I noticed that these waitresses were wearing very short tight skirts, tight fitting cleavage exposing tops and high heels. This attire may be appropriate for a lap dancing or strip club but is not befitting a restaurant serving brunch on a Sunday in an area populated by young families" is absolutely exaggerated and, quite frankly, bizarre, to the point that I strongly suggest that the writer of this review seek counseling before it is too late.

Would I return to Brown's Social House in Port Moody? Perhaps. But there are numerous other high quality establishments out there that deserve to be sampled. On this basis, Brown's will be lower on the list until such time as I have sampled the alternatives.

Red Robin3000 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam
Definitely a poor hamburger experience!
Submitted Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 1:49am [Dine in]

We dined at this restaurant at 2100 on a Monday night in mid-June. We ordered a chocolate milkshake (double dip), onion rings, a "monster" bacon cheeseburger and a Phlly cheesesteak sandwich which came with a Caesar salad. French fries also came with the meal.

The service was generally slow and disinterested. The waitress did not bring us cutlery or napkins despite the fact that our dishes mandated such until we specifically asked her to.

The chocolate milkshake was quite good but that is where the accolades stop.

The Philly cheesesteak was mediocre with thick, heavy bread and a minimum of cheese, steak or anything else. The doughy bread easily overpowered the steak and the vegetables. Yes, they definitely do it better in Philly so if this is the experience you are trying to approximate, think again.

The hamburger was small despite being a "monster" iteration. The taste was again mediocre.

The Caesar salad was simply inedible. The dressing, quite frankly, was rancid. It was easily the WORST Caesar salad I have ever had.

The French fries were OK.

The prices were high. Our tab with tip was $45 which is quite atrocious for a hamburger joint, let alone a poor one. Much better value and taste are to be had at A&W or even McDonald's for that matter. When a restaurant compares unfavorably to a dump like Micky D's, now that is saying something!

Don't bother to even contemplate eating at this dump. Your taste buds and your wallet will thank you if you opt for one of the many other available hamburger restaurant choices in the Tri-Cities.

New India Buffet & Restaurant805 W Broadway, #105, Vancouver
Good vegetarian selections, meat dishes not so great
Submitted Friday, June 4, 2010 - 10:54am [Dine in]

I dined at this restaurant on a Wednesday afternoon. It is well located on West Broadway and has a great view of the Vancouver skyline to the north.

The food selections were varied and included a number of both meat and vegetable dishes. I found the latter much better than the former which lacked spiciness and taste. The vegetarian dishes included a wonderful cole slaw, an excellent kachumber salad, tasty potato salad which was seasoned just right and a purely delightful tomato and onion salad. The naan bread was also very good.

There were also two tasty drinks available: peach nectar and mango lemonade. Both were lovely.

Overall, I enjoyed this buffet and partook mainly of the vegetable offerings. If you keep that factor in mind and opt less for the butter chicken and other meat dishes, you will enjoy it, too!

I might add, in closing, the price was very reasonable.

Cafe Pacifica999 Canada Place, #300, Vancouver
False advertising!!!
Submitted Tuesday, December 22, 2009 - 2:46am [Dine in]

After having attended the Santa's Sunday Brunch last year (2008) we decided to attend this year. In advance, we directed an e-mail to the Cafe Pacifica to inquire as to whether there would be Alaska King crab legs on offer and received an e-mail back to the effect that there would definitely be.

We attended the brunch on 20 December 2009 and guess what??! There were NO Alaska king crab legs!!! Upon inquiry of one of the staff on site, she replied rather blankly that there were no King crab legs but that they would be available on the Christmas Eve brunch for $99.00!!!

This is nothing short of false advertising. The price is already exhorbitant and for there to be no Alaskan King crab legs is outrageous. In Vegas you can have them every night of the week for $26.00!!!

The Cafe Pacifica is a deceptive rip-off! We will never go there again. Avoid at all costs!!!

Mr. Mikes Steakhouse & Bar2991 Lougheed Highway, #32, Coquitlam
A joke of a "steakhouse"
Submitted Friday, December 18, 2009 - 11:01pm [Dine in]

I have dined at this steakhouse so-called on one occasion and I would never go back.

I ordered an Avalanche Mikeburger and it was horrible: overcooked with soggy mushrooms, bacon, lettuce, tomato and onion. Truly disgusting.

The service was surly and condescending. The waitress truly did not care about whether I was satisfied or not.

The milieu was cheesy with disgusting pictures hanging on the walls.

This place is absolutely horrible. It has poor food, service and milieu. It is profoundly NOT worth the money. By all means, if you are smart, go elsewhere!

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The2991 Lougheed Highway, Unit 130, Coquitlam
Probably the BEST KEG in the Lower Mainland!
Submitted Friday, December 18, 2009 - 10:49pm [Dine in]

I have dined at this newest Keg Restaurant now on a number of occasions. It is truly excellent from any perspective. The food is superb, the service consistently attentive without being solicitous and the ambiance of the restaurant engaging and very pleasant. The price is a bargain considering the quality of the food and service.

On my latest visit to the restaurant I enjoyed the shrimp cocktail, the garden salad, the French onion soup and the Keg sized prime rib with a lobster tail. All of the food was excellent. The shrimp were succulent and plump with wonderful cocktail sauce. The salad was crisp and fresh. The onion soup was done superbly. The prime rib was plentiful, well-seasoned, cooked to perfection and highly satisfactory. The lobster was wonderful and most certainly worth the additional price.

My server was pleasant, attractive, engaging, knowledgeable and thoroughly attentive without hovering over the table. She made sure that the food was of the highest quality.

If you would like to dine at a supremely excellent steakhouse I would recommend the Coquitlam Keg without reservation. It just may be the best Keg in the Lower Mainland.

Submitted Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 1:01am [Dine in]

I have eaten at this establishment on numerous occasions. The food is always superb with the chicken and pork being especially tasty. The staff are always very accommodating and helpful and cook the food perfectly. The price is excellent considering the mall environment. The ambiance is standard mall and fast food environment.

Overall I highly recommend the GoodAh grill to anyone who enjoys meat served for a fair price and in an appropriate environment.

Buffet at River Rock, The8811 River Rd., Richmond
Worst possible food and service at an AYCE buffet!
Submitted Sunday, December 6, 2009 - 9:44pm [Dine in]

I have dined at this atrocious "buffet" on one occasion and will never go back.

The food is profoundly poor in both quality and selection. It tastes totally institutional. The service is uncaring and unprofessional. The value quotient is nil in view of the preceding two parameters. The ambiance is totally lacking.

It is clear that the quality of this place is so poor because the government runs it. There is no incentive whatsoever for striving for excellence. Compare this dump to the excellent buffets in Reno or Las Vegas or even to the other local privately run buffets and there is simply no comparison.

Spend your money elsewhere where there is some striving for excellence in food quality and service.

I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed very good food served by friendly waitresses in a nice, clean restaurant environment.

The burgers and fish and chips are especially good.

The milieu is that of a 50s diner.

Prices are relatively low and commensurate with the style of the diner.

You can't go wrong here.

King Mongolian Grill Restaurant2564 Shaughnessy Street, Port Coquitlam
Quality standard has been raised!
Submitted Sunday, November 1, 2009 - 10:28pm [Dine in]

Since my first review I have returned to the King Mongolian Grill twice more and am most happy to report that this restaurant has improved.

The sauces have been greatly improved upon in that now there is real flavor to them, more than on my first visit, but you still have to add several spoonfuls of each to achieve the desired taste.

On my last two visits the waitress brought my food to the table so that I did not have to stand and wait for it to cook.

The floor has been cleaned and is now in a reasonable state of cleanliness. This is highly salutary. The washroom is also well maintained.

I will now be a regular customer of the King Mongolian Grill Restaurant as its food, service and ambiance are now excellent, which makes the value quotient much higher.

Great Wall Mongolian BBQ717 Denman Street, Vancouver
Absolutely superb AYCE Mongolian restaurant
Submitted Sunday, October 4, 2009 - 10:24pm [Dine in]

I have eaten at the Great Wall on Denman on many, many occasions and am never disappointed in the quality of either the food or the service. For a miniscule $11.95 you get all the delectable Mongolian food you can eat, expertly cooked by their attentive chefs at the big, circular, steel Mongolian grill at the end of the food line.

The concept is simple: for a set price you go up to the food line, fill your large bowl with all the chicken, pork, lamb and/or beef you wish, then add a vast selection of vegetables and top it off with a number of tasty, zesty sauces which impart the wonderful flavor to the food. The chef then cooks it right in front of you which takes one to two minutes.

The quality of the food is excellent. You also get complimentary rice, soup and an egg roll to eat brought to your table by a very accommodating waitress. I rarely eat the extras (except the excellent soup) so as to save room for the Mongolian grilled food!

The level of cleanliness of this restaurant is quite reasonable including the clean washrooms. This is in contrast to other similarly themed restaurants where the floor can be greasy, especially the cooking area.

Overall, I would rate the Great Wall Mongolian BBQ on Denman very highly. The only real problem is that parking is scarce and frequently hard to find.

Pizza Factory3242 Westwood St, #109, Port Coquitlam
Truly excellent pizza in PoCo!
Submitted Wednesday, September 30, 2009 - 6:21pm [Dine in]

I have ordered the House Special pizza at this establishment on several occasions and the pizza has been consistently excellent. The dough has been just right and the toppings have been generous and in just the right proportion to the dough.

The staff are always alert and attentive and see to it that the pizza is made just right.

The value quotient is high as the price is one of the lowest for any pizza establishment, especially if you purchase two large pizzas, as I do.

The milieu is appropriate for a pizza establishment.

All in all, I look forward to frequenting the Pizza Factory on Westwood again and recommend it without hesitation to one and all.

Pajo's Fish & Chips2800 Murray St, Port Moody
Fabulous hot dogs and fish and chips down by the water!
Submitted Friday, July 31, 2009 - 3:05am [Dine in]

My family and I dined at Pajo's in Port Moody on a hot, sultry summer afternoon and had a representative sampling of their food including fish and chips and hot dogs. Both selections were excellent with the hot dogs being absolutely excellent. They were seasoned just right and had a hint of heat to them, absolutely superb. The fish and chips were also outstanding and were enjoyed by one and all..

We would not hesitate to return to this fine seaside dining establishment and give it a very high rating without reservation.

Pizza Hut2881 Barnett Highway, Coquitlam
Dismal food at this typical Pizza Hut
Submitted Saturday, April 25, 2009 - 6:46pm [Dine in]

This is your typical Pizza Hut location with sit-down table service.

We ordered two medium pizzas and the food quality was terrible. The ground beef was absolutely tasteless. The tomato sauce was grossly adequate in amount. The other toppings were also basically tasteless except the Canadian bacon which displayed a modicum of flavor.

The server was lackluster and inattentive. The empty drink glasses went unattended for prolonged periods. She did not even return to receive payment and payment had to be done at the front of the restaurant.

The ambiance was that of the Pizza Hut, basically little. At the time of our visit there was horrible music playing which would have been more at home in a Japanese restaurant. It was also distractingly loud.

The prices were very high considering the terrible quality of the food.

This was the WORST pizza I have eaten in a very long time, perhaps ever, and was of lower quality than a frozen pizza out of the market.

Gotham Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar615 Seymour Street, Vancouver
The best steakhouse in Vancouver
Submitted Monday, April 6, 2009 - 11:24am [Dine in]

We dined at Gotham on the evening of 5 April 2009. The restaurant was not particularly busy.

The entire experience at this restaurant was positive with outstanding food and service along with ambiance. The physical premises are in the old steakhouse tradition with dim lighting and richly appointed interior touches.

I requested unsweetened iced tea as a beverage and was informed that they only had sweetened available so they would brew some unsweetened iced tea especially for me. What followed was a truly excellent unsweetened iced tea with a hint of honey flavoring. Lovely!

The vinaigrette on the beefsteak tomato and red onion salad was delectable. The clam chowder was superb. The porterhouse steaks were impeccable and were seasoned and cooked exactly correctly. They were melt-in-one's-mouth tender. If there was a weak spot in the food it was the shrimp cocktail which only contained four shrimps instead of five or six but the cocktail sauce was superb.

The waiter was knowledgeable, not condescending or solicitous, prompt and appropriately attentive. His quality of service was far, far above the average restaurant server.

Comparing Gotham to Hy's or Morton's, it easily stands out as superior to both. The value is also far better than the ridiculous Morton's. Your taste buds and wallet are both well served at Gotham.

Great Han Mongolian BBQ3043 Main Street, Vancouver
Not as good as Mongolian Grill on Davie
Submitted Friday, March 20, 2009 - 5:12pm [Dine in]

This is your typical Mongolian grill concept where for a set price you can eat as many bowls of meat and vegetables, noodles, etc. as you wish all cooked on the circular, large Mongolian grill.

The food items are your standard fare: pork, lamb, beef and chicken in frozen circular shavings. The vegetables and noodles are quite prolific in number. The meats and vegetables are fresh. The sauces are also your typical Mongolian grill type sauces.

For some reason, the sauces did not seem to impart the same tastes to the food as I have experienced at the Mongolian Grill on Davie. I have no idea why this would be so unless the sauces are diluted or the cooking technique uses more water to dilute the sauces before they have had a chance to be absorbed by the food items.

Still, the taste of the food is satisfying and quantity is not an issue.

The service is attentive with a waiter bringing the cooked food to your table.

The cleanliness of the restaurant leaves a bit to be desired, however, and the establishment has a somewhat shabby aura surrounding it. This did not interfere with the enjoyment of the food, however.

I would return to this restaurant when in the mood for this type of repast.

Mr Mikes Steakhouse & Bar2991 Lougheed Highway, #32, Coquitlam
Bad restaurant.
Submitted Monday, March 9, 2009 - 1:02am [Dine in]

I dined here on the evening of 7 March 2009, ordering one of the few attractive choices from a basically unattractive and poor steakhouse menu. No shrimp cocktail, no tomato and onion salad, no French onion soup and a rather paltry selection of steaks! I mean, what kind of a steakhouse is this??!

Anyway, I ended up with the "Avalanche Mikeburger." The "two patties" were razor thin, tough, tasteless and grossly overcooked. This would qualify as one of the worst hamburgers I have ever had. Much better is available just over the way at the local A&W for a fraction of the price. Even McDonald's is better.

The service was average. The milieu was so-so and appeared a bit threadbare. The value was simply not there the burger was so poor.

Needless to say I would not bother to return to this establishment to sample the few steaks on the "steakhouse" menu. And what's with the motif of fat, half-naked men prancing around in the wilderness??! This is just stupid and tasteless. Kind of like the Mikeburger.
