Best Indian Take out
Submitted Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 7:12pm [Dine in]

What can I say? Was looking for Indian take out and was thinking of all the Indian places on Main str. Someone told me forget those places and try this place. Real family owned home cooking. Butter chicken awesome subji incredible and chick pea curry the best. Garlic naan came with it and the whole order with rice and like 8 samosas was under $40! 3 of us ate it for 3 meals!! Crazy - it;s the best!

My Greek Taverna946 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
Good new go-to Greek
Submitted Thursday, August 30, 2012 - 10:58pm [Dine in]

First off, after reading these reviews, I did not find the food salty, the room dark, the service lacking =, the music loud nor the portions "massive". I guess it's perception.

We went on Thursday night around 6:30. The place was busy but there were still some empty table.s We got a nice window seat with sun. We noticed the meals coming TOO quickly after ordering so we waited and had a drink before ordering.

The meals we had were delicious. And, like most greek places came witih the puffy pita bread, a small thimble ot tsatziki, tons of cheap rice and potato. Not much different here. Spanikapita was flaky and good but not totally to my liking as it had a lot of mint in it. Mint should stay in toothpaste and not my dinner. However it was ok.

Drinks were pretty cheap and the wine prices were very good after being used to paying the ripoff prices at the Keg, joeys etc.

All in all a great meal and we will return when we are in the mood for a carb fest.

Cone Zone, The595 6 Street, #1, New Westminster
Average Gelato place
Submitted Friday, August 24, 2012 - 10:48am [Dine in]

This place seemed new to me so I tried it. Had single cone and it was fine.My niece liked hers too but didn't rave like a kid would if it was spectaculat. Nothing to rave about but nothing to complain about either. Certainly a good go to place in New Westminster.

Not as good as the best gelato place in the lowermainland, Matteo's in Port Coquitlam. Now that guy knows what he is doing. Oh and Matteo's also gives freshly made waffle cones for the same price and has for years. So, this place is not the only place in the lower mainland. I prefer a cup though and didn't get a discount. Oh well, Try it if you'r in the area.

the love affair is over after the renos
Submitted Thursday, August 23, 2012 - 9:47pm [Take-out]

I used to really like this place. The combo was good and the falafels some of the best anywhere. They renovated recently and this was my first visit.

I ordered a falafel combo which comes with any one salad and a pop. I realized after that although the sign says it's $7.45 the total came to $8.68 which means that before tax he charged me $7.75. Sneaky. You can make a lot doing this without people noticing.

The woman making it asked me if it was to go and I said yes so she put it in a small brown paper bag. I asked about my salad. This is not the first time they have tried to "forget" the salad in a combo. I asked for a caesar and they make it with cheese, lettuce etc in a metal bowl. She dished out the normal amount of lettuce poured dressing on it and then tried to stuff it into a take out bowl. She then put the lid on and left half the usual amount of salad in the bowl so I didn't get the same amount as it I had ordered it to stay. When I got back to my office, the falafel was poorly wrapped an fell apart, the falafels were raw and cold in the middle and the woman didn't even give me a fork for my salad. That's ok it was so awful I couldn't eat it. They now use some nasty bottleld caesar dressing, that is sour tasting and really bad. She just soaked the lettuce too. In the garbage.

There's a nice new Indian place next door that was serving large portions of great smelling food for similar or less cost. I will go there next time.

Nice Pub to watch your friends or kids play hockey
Submitted Thursday, August 23, 2012 - 9:30pm [Dine in]

This place is good because it's so big you can see every rink with big glass windows. Well designed. You can order from a waitress at the one end or do self serve at the other . Food all comes from the same place. It's a tad expensive for food service type food, but most of the portions are large - except the chicken strips. THE older woman running the self serve till was not too with it. Very slow and did not seem to know how to run the cash register.

But as a fun place to hang with friends or other parents on your kid's team it's pretty good. There's way worse rinks out there.

Not bad for Subway
Submitted Sunday, July 22, 2012 - 12:29am [Dine in]

Sometimes you just have to have Subway. Location, time diet, may just dicatate that this is al you can have for lunch. The bread does make the place smell weird though.

This subway is usually better than most. The owner is good. This location has the seafood filling again after many years! I don't know of any others that have it. They also have the $5 veggie foot long which makes up for the usual rip off on veggie subs.

I also like the salads here, althought sometimes the salads are huge and sometimes they are small depending on who makes it. Fast food should be reliably consistant. However, all in all this subway is better than most, but still overpriced.

Pajo's Fish & Chips2800 Murray St, Port Moody
location make it always good
Submitted Sunday, July 22, 2012 - 12:16am [Dine in]

FIrst off I don't understand some of the poster's comments. They don't like the way it's served, in a paper cone? That's how fish and chips is supposed to be served in England, in real newspaper. Health dept would not let them use real newspaper anymore(stupid) so they have their own paper. How is that weird?

Next people complain about the fish and chips being greasy -it's freakin deep fried fish and deep fried potatoes. What did you expect a tossed salad?

I have had lots of fish and chips and this fish is good- really good. Some times it's better than others, so are the fries - sometimes top not and sometimes a little less so. The servings of fries are huge but I find it a bit expensive for the amount of fish you get. But, it's a cover charge I guess for the spectacular location. Hamburgers are amazing and the veggie dogs were surprsingly good too.

They need to figure out how to speed up service on busy summer days though.

White Spot4129 Lougheed Highway, Burnaby
Better experience at a Whitepsot than I've had in a long time
Submitted Friday, July 20, 2012 - 7:28pm [Dine in]

We were going to go to Milestones on Lougheed Hwy for lunch only to find it DEMOLISHED! So we took the grandma and gramps to Whitepspot on Kingways. I am not a Whitespot fan in any way.

Restaurant was less than half full on a Friday at lunch. Is that a good sign? You used to have to wait at Whitespots. Waiter was young, inexperienced and a little odd.

We ordered one grilled cheese pirate pak - sandwich ok fries cold and hard, ice cream ok, juice fine. One, breakfast entree which was deemed alright and a strawberry pie which was not cooked(the berries) glazed and had no custard - very BORING. One order of fish and chips which was very good but very greasy - the fries again were not good. The salmon burger was the best salmon burger I have ever had anywhere, very dilly and lemony, with a BIG salmon fillet. Again the fries not so good. Coleslaw was subpar today.

All in all , it was better than some of my previous visit and better value than places like the Keg, Earls, Milestones etc. It seems like the chain is trying, but please lose those nasty fries, they are terrible.

Disgusting!!
Submitted Wednesday, July 18, 2012 - 5:30pm [Dine in]

This place hs no clue how to bake. Its bread is bleached white or dry brown bread pretending to be whole wheat when it's not. The girls that work there are really rude. They don't have any good cookies anymore like the walnut raisin ones, only white bread chocolate chip etc. Even the gingerbread men have NO flavor. I ordered a date square. I took one bite and threw it in the garbage. It had a huge thick brown soft gooey filling of something that looked like dates but was not. It was not really even sweet or tasty just sticky. The dusting of topping looked like floor sweepings and tasted kind of like cinnamon. That is NOT a date square. It was vile. How can they really sell junk like this? I hope they go out of business soon as they deserve to. It's not 1974 anymore. No one wants the crap you make.

Keg Steakhouse & Bar, The2991 Lougheed Highway, Unit 130, Coquitlam
Empty again
Submitted Saturday, July 14, 2012 - 1:14am [Dine in]

I don't get it. I used to go to the Keg and it was an hour or more wait on a Friday or Satuday night. no matter which keg you went to. This is a new Keg - 2 years ish and for the 3 rd time on a weekend I've just walked in at 6 or 7 pm on a weekend night and sat right down.. That had to mean something is wrong. Perhaps it's the prices????

Appetizer prices are ok and so are the wines by the glass but beer at $7.80 a glass with(of course)no prices on the menu is rididculous! Sangria was well priced at $6.95 but not the best I've ever had. My partner had thai chicken which had to have the side of rice pilaf or else it would be a portion for a kindergartener. With the rice it became suitable for a 2nd grader.($17.95) I had a lobster and shrimp salad which at $23.95 they should be embarrassed. THere were exactly 4 pieces of lobster each at less than 1" square and 5 shrimp. The other components of the salad, greens, nuts, corn, blackbeans were also very skimpy which made the salad very small, and not ony poor value but a complete rip off. Their appetizer caesar others were ordering at $6.95 was 3 X the size.

I couldn't bear the thought of another GROSS slice of (factory manufactured Billy Miner pie )for the last 30 years so we checked out. I'm done with this chain. They better reinvent themselves. - a "special" of 1/2 steak and 1/2 lobster tail for $38.95 is just stupid. That's not "special" dudes. Nor is the the Keg.

Holy Falafel & Shawarma House26426 56 Avenue, Unit E, Langley
Good new addition to fast food
Submitted Friday, June 8, 2012 - 9:34pm [Dine in]

I think this place has aspirations to be a chain. Only one location now. Loved the interior decor for a fast food place and the LCD menu board. Menu board has pictured of everything which is great for selection and to help those who are unfamiliar with the food. Lots fo vegetarian and vegan options.

I am a bit of a falafel snob. I ordered one here. The balls were in a holding pan in the food area. They were prefried and I did not see if they reheated them or if they were just hot. However, they were not very crispy - hot and crispy, freshly fried is the only real way to go. Plus the balls were way too big in my opinion. Perhaps they will consider this. Maybe they could offer the option of fresh fried if you are willing to wait.

The pita is regular run of the mill flat pita - cannot remember if i was offered a choice. Then they put on some sauces, hot sauce, lettuce, tomato. It comes with tabbouleh but i don't like it so I added onions. There ws was no offer of feta cheese - I like cheese. They then put on some weird purple pickled turnip which I know is traditional, but I don't like it and don't think it adds anything.

Anywas the pita ended up being very filling and pretty good and tasty. And it was less than $6. All in all a good deal. I would come back if in the area. But right now no one beats the falafel place in Brentwood mall for falafel balls done right!!

Thai Pearl? More like Chinese Pearl
Submitted Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 10:06am [Dine in]

This is NOT Thai food it is Chinese food. Singapore noodles are from Singapore, not Thailand. The mixed veggies are the same as at the chinese take out place in the food court, and very bland. I thougth "thai" food was supposed to be spicy and flavourful. The spring roll tasted like an old fashioned egg roll and again little flavour and no spice. Very greasy. The soup was not even flavourful at all either and had one whole mushroom and some bean sprouts floating in it.

There is no pad thai or peanut sauce here .
Maybe I'll open a grilled cheese stand and call it gaga's cinnamon rolls as that would have as much significance to grilled cheese and as this Chinese place has to "Thai".

Best deal are the lunch specials but still steep at $10. A roll, a sunomono and miso soup. Soup was ok but nothing special. Sunumono was HUGE and had nice prawn in it. The roll was average to smallish. I would go back if in the area. But like others have said there is NO WHERE to park. Ok if you have to use tranist.

Submitted Friday, March 23, 2012 - 1:07pm [Dine in]

Not Mexican.

I had a burrito which came wet and was honestly quite bland. The "lettuce salad" that came with it was just shredded lettuce on the plate. The sour cream and cheese toppings were really just small drizzles. The burrito was not bad once I added my own hot sauce from the table.

Other people at my table seemed to like their choices better. I over heard a lady at the next table say her sandwich was just like Subway.

The place is authentic in that stuff is mismatched and they also sell some Latin groceries. Looks like a place you'd really find in a latin American country.

My friends took me there because they really seem to like it. The owner I think was polite. I'd go again but not my first choice.

Saturday game night with family.. Husband ordered Canadian but they did not say that Bud was only four bucks. Boo. Wine prices average - a rip off like most places. $6.49 for cheap red at 6 oz.

Sat night pizza was large for the price of a medium but they charge the higher price if you order a half and half Kid meals were very small for close to seven bucks. The baja salad was more like a boohoo salad. VERY bland. I had to pick out all the olives and it had no peppers corn or onions it in it was desribed on the menu. It was lettuce, GROSS olives, a little cheese, a few tortilla strips with jarred salsa for $12.99 not good value. Came with teeny piece of garlic bread. Child had chocolate pizza for dessert.. should have asked. It wa a tiny milk chocolate coin the size of a tooney - not at all what was expected. WOuld never go again without a gift card.

Wouldn't waste my time again
Submitted Sunday, March 4, 2012 - 1:38pm [Dine in]

Went on a Saturday night - place was more than half empty. Not a good first impression. The builidng itself was a nice old heritage house and nicely decorated but that's where it ends. Whatever you do , don't sit upstairs. There's no washroom up there and so if you're drinking, you're up and down the stairs all night - plus I think the wait staff forgets you're there.

We sat down and though there was a food menu, there were no drink menus or wine lists. We waited OVER 20 minutes before we were even apporached by a waitress. I had to ask for a wine list and then she had to go all the way downstairs to get one and then back up. Cocktails were exspensive and if there were any specials we weren't told about them.

Now for the food. Food seemed to come whever, regardless of who ordered when. The burgers were very thin and skimpy and the salmon burger was just weird. It was a thin salmon filet piece on top of the open bun, so that there was over half the bun not covered. It was just placed down the middle. It was not reall a burger. I had to cut it in half and rearrange it on the bun in order to make it a burger. The salmon was quite fishy tasting and some of the skin was still on so it was kinda gross, The fries were good though. However, portion sizes were uneven and some people got a ton of fries and other had very few. Not good for customers. Also, someone ordered onion rings and when they were served they were ice cold. They were sent back and all they did was rebatter and refry the already made cold rings. YUK. They were not eaten again. Why would they do that? They were therefore comped but so they should have been. Many of the ordered were incomplete, i.e. burgers with no lettuce/tomato etc. When you're short staffed already it would make sense to get the food orders correct so your wait staff isn't running up and down the stairs with food complaints.

Anyway, if I had to go back with a group or whatever, I'd go, but I'd never voluntarily go there again. There's too many good places to waste time and money at places like this. We left around 10 and there were only about 4 tables full of people. That's really the review in itself no?

Awesome Dine out!!!!
Submitted Monday, February 13, 2012 - 7:39pm [Dine in]

Where can you eat a fantastic 3 course meal for $18? What a great DOV deal!! Went with a group with reservations. We were sat promptly and the waiter promptly took out drink orders. The rum punch was excellent and good value in pitchers. We shared a few of these and we all recieved separate bills with the cost of all of the pitchers dvided evenly among those who were drinking it. So thoughtful.

Most of us had the plantain chips. I am not a fan of plantains but they were ok and the spicy dip they came with was incredible. Others at the table had a tomato type soup with cocomut milk and pronounced it deslish.

The main courses we had were jerk chicken or jerk tofu which came with peas and rice. Both were amazing and the sauce was spectaculat. Oh and the Johnny cakes - deep fried corn bread heaven. They were complimentary even with teh DOV menue and we got a second round free!

Dessert was fried banana with mango ice cream and caramel . No words. I could not even finish everthing, was suffed and stunned at the $18 tabl Best DOV value ever!

I will go back again.

Really Good Greek place
Submitted Tuesday, January 3, 2012 - 11:55pm [Dine in]

We ususally come here twice a year and always with an entertainment coupon. I like that fact that it has classier looking decor than most Greek restaurants. The staff is friendly and the food is good.

I really like the spanikopita here. It is very tasty and not greasy. The pita bread is fantastic but a little over priced I think for extra. Souvlakis are good, salads, Greek and Caesar among some of the best. Potatoes are ok. The only criticism is that for a Greek restaurant the portions are somewhat small. I don't really want huge portions but for the same price as other places there really aren't any leftovers, even the rice serving is a scant 1/2 cup.

Despite this with the coupon it's a nice dinner out.
