De Dutch Pannekoek House2748 Lougheed Highway, #200, Port Coquitlam
Pannakoek's, Toast and Hash.
Submitted Saturday, August 4, 2012 - 5:15am [Dine in]

Pannakoek's, Toast and Hash. That's what will be dominated on your plate at The Dutch. Fruit sides are decorative, not substantial. Pannakoek's are good but I was never happy with any kind of the included side options. I used to go hare all the time until Cora's opened. Gone are the days of lining up here. Now I'm surprised if there is a day where they are half full. Only after Cora's opened, they come out with a special's menu but the fruit and vegetable sides still suck. Service is always efficient and friendly. I will be back with my next pannakoek craving. I think they can bring back customers if they start offering healthy side options that actually taste good and don't end up costing me extra on top of already pretty pricey pannakoek's.

Cora's Breakfast & Lunch3025 Lougheed Highway, #390, Coquitlam
Best Breakfast menu.
Submitted Saturday, August 4, 2012 - 4:51am [Dine in]

We used to go all the time to The Dutch that is until Cora's Opened. Cora's has a huge menu. Most of dishes come with lots of fresh fruit or veggies. Fresh fruit juices and an espresso machine if you want something more then plain coffee. If you want meat and carbs, The Dutch is better for that. On the negative side Cora's is way understaffed and I mean always to a point where I feel bad for the servers who are all very friendly at this location. They eggs always come out like they were microwaved, no sign of crispness on the edges.

Charlie's2517 St. Johns St, Port Moody
Best Mexican restaurant I've tried.
Submitted Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - 1:24am [Dine in]

Chicken chimichanga is usually what I order and when I'm craving Mexican this is the place I like best in Lower Mainland. Portions are decent and prices are reasonable. Quaint interior with tiled floors, wood hand made chairs and tables, yellow walls and very clean. Family owned so care goes into the food and service.

Poncho's827 Denman St, Vancouver
Mediocre Green Enchiladas
Submitted Monday, October 4, 2010 - 4:32am [Dine in]

Green Enchiladas looked microwaved and almost as if came out of a frozen box because it was perfectly layered with food to three quarters of an inch high. 1/2 of the dish was way sour green chicken enchiladas, 1/4 was watery refried beans and the rest was typical Mexican rice. The enchiladas were covered with lines of watery sour cream from a squeeze bottle. Side of guacamole and Tortilla chips were good but the salsa was not home made and not good.
"At least I'll enjoy the dessert" I thought. The 3 2.5 inch churros were cold and not fresh fried.
I mentioned that churros should be fresh fried or at the very least served warm with ice cream. A few minutes later she came back with fresh fried churros.
She was friendly and I did tip 20%. We were the only table from 5pm to 5:45pm but it was still too early for most people.
I might try them again a year from now to see if the food improves.

Akari Japanese Restaurant3000 Lougheed Highway, #112, Coquitlam
My favorite for fresh sashimi!
Submitted Monday, October 4, 2010 - 4:21am [Dine in]

I dine here all the time when I'm craving non authentic Japanese.
Food is always pretty consistent, fresh sashimi and I only had an upset stomach once after eating here.

Sometimes dinner does not arrive at the same time. Friendly staff and host.
I've tried most of the Japanese restaurants in this area. I feel pretty safe eating their food and for this reason I will return here when I'm craving Japanese.

East Side Mario's2929 Barnet Hwy, #1050, Coquitlam
Wow another ookie cutter restaurant!
Submitted Tuesday, May 4, 2010 - 2:39am [Dine in]

I've been here a few times since they opened. The food is just ok. The sauces on the pasta dishes are generic made with from flavors and thickeners. The sauce portions are tiny too. I've never tasted cream in the rose sauce.

I do like the fresh baked white bun and salad but the tiny salad portions are so obvious. 2 olives, 2 onion ring and so on. Cheap.

The service has always been ok. I do like the ambiance but would not be happy if they tried seating me in the middle of the room. The booths could be more comfortable.

I try to avoid this generic restaurant.

Lombardo's Ristorante and Pizzeria1641 Commercial, #120, Vancouver
Was best pizza in Vancouver for a long time!
Submitted Tuesday, May 4, 2010 - 1:18am [Dine in]

My partner and I have been driving 30 minutes just to get to Lombardo's for over 10 years now. Why? the answer is simple: Their thin crust wood burning pizza's made from ingredients you can trust. Try to look up ingredients of Pizza Hut's pizzas, you will be shocked and most likely never eat there again.

So what else is really good? Try the chef's salad of course before your pizza is ready. Their other dishes are nothing special.

The service is ok but I remember being ticked off a few times.

It's not really fair for me to complain about the location but I do not like parking underground and taking the dirty elevator, always wondering if we'll get lucky enough to enjoy the ride with some bums.

I've never paid for parking and I've never been ticketed but that choice is yours.

Wilbur & Sabastians Bistro2020 Oxford Connector, #203, Coquitlam
One of my favorites.
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 1:37am [Dine in]

Let me tell you why I've been here with my partner so many times! The food is true to it's nature. In other words, everything is made from scratch and free of engineered flavors and other fillers that should not even be considered as edible food. If you want flavored crap then go to East Side Mario's or any other cookie cutter restaurant.

This site should have two ratings for food. Food taste and food quality.
I'd give them 4/5 for taste and 5/5 for quality. Some of the dishes are a little simple but still very good. The dessert fridge is noisy but I would always go up to it to check out what fresh desserts are available for devouring. Desserts are home made and most are very rich. I would like to see some less rich desserts as well.

Interior reminds me of a simple but inviting European eatery.

We need more restaurants like this.

Rozzini's2810 St. Johns Street, Port Moody
Did not honor coupon!
Submitted Sunday, February 7, 2010 - 1:06am [Dine in]

I've been here a few times but will never go back after they did not honor a pizza coupon. I was kind of surprised because the owner and staff were always so nice and friendly that is until I wanted to use a coupon for a few pizzas I was taking out. I was told the coupon does not apply pick-up but this was not mentioned on the coupon.

The interior is dark, similar to the Renzo's restaurant that used to be there.
I liked the Greek pita and the pizza was not bad.

They are located in a strip mall on St Johns....blinking light strips in the windows, can't miss it.

Pho Huy Vietnamese Restaurant2755 Lougheed Hwy, #22, Port Coquitlam
Delicious but simple Vietnamese dishes.
Submitted Monday, February 1, 2010 - 3:46am [Dine in]

We come here at least once a month when I'm craving Vietnamese food. The family owned restaurant is located in a strip mall. The ambiance is a little nicer then fast food restaurants. One of the friendly family members will take your order after you seat yourself down. The restaurant is usually half full during lunch or dinners so I'm surprised how fast the food comes out after ordering.

Chicken dishes are my favorite and I usually get vermicelli noodles instead of rice and egg instead of the fried roll.

I used to order bubble tea here all the time but for the last 6 months they don't have any black pearls. Black pearls are the only reason why I like bubble teas.

I would not recommend ordering soups as they are usually mostly water and flavor.

Worth a try for sure as dishes are affordable and range around $7.50

S Restaurant50 Queens Street, Port Moody
Go somewhere nicer for these prices.
Submitted Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 1:39am [Dine in]

Outside the place looks like a strip joint with neon lines and the letter S. Inside there is some wood door features but once you go into the dining area, it's just painted walls, carpets I think, cushion chairs and cotton table cloths. I've seen a piano there but not sure if they still have it. Having the windows clean at sunset takes so little effort but the can't seem to clue in. The food quality is average.

The service is friendly but not trained very well.

I would recommend going somewhere nicer with a view and more open interiors if you're going to spend that much on dinner.

Chada Thai Fine Cuisine2991 Lougheed Hwy, #107, Coquitlam
Overpriced sweet and hot portions.
Submitted Wednesday, June 10, 2009 - 1:05am [Dine in]

We decided to give Chada Thai another try after not going back for over a year. They have added new black solar screens so you can't see into the restaurant during day time and cramped more tables into the little dining space they have but it was pretty quiet so I did not mind.

To start, we ordered pan-seared tiger prawns marinated in chilli and garlic ginger sauce with a green apple salad for $12. This sounds really good right but I only had some of the 2 table spoons of salad that came with the 4 shelled, fried and intestine left in prawns. The prawns were sliced in half so it looked like you got 8. The worst part was the eyes still intact on 2 of the prawns. Yuk not for me.

For the main course I ordered Chada Thai five-spices grilled chicken served with fried rice and plum sauce for $26. This also sounds delicious but not. I was shocked to see $2 costing on a $26 dish. Basically I got 1 grilled chicken leg on vegetable fried rice and there was no plum sauce.

My partner ordered steamed fish (basa) stuffed with ginger, green onion, lemon, cilantro served with grilled asparagus, carrot, baby corn, and mango sauce. I guess I had to share his plum sauce. He liked his dish even though is was tiny but presented very well.

The service can't speak English very well and they did not bother to ask how our meals were. Lucky for them cause I was ready :)

I looked across the street at KFC and told my partner that I'd rather have their chicken leg for $2 or what ever KFC charges for chicken legs.

On the positive side, the Chada Thai infused ice and mint drink for $2.50 was very good and the complementary mint patty was good too.

Little Thailand2335 St. Johns Street, #1-2, Port Moody
Fresh home made from fresh ingredients
Submitted Saturday, April 18, 2009 - 5:34am [Dine in]

The Owner is a very friendly lady that tries her best to make you happy. The kitchen is very small resulting in slow service when the restaurant is busy. If you're planning on having a party here, make sure she hires extra cook for that day or your guests will be eating at different times.

The portions are not very large and you will have to pay extra for rice. If you order rice, try the coconut brown or coconut white rice. It's sweet and I treat it as my desert whenever we don't order fried banana ice cream.

Someone mentioned that their favorite dish here was the spring rolls. I don't recommend them. These are most likely frozen and store bought. Try the chicken salad roll instead.

This little restaurant needs to replace it's stained tablecloths but this will not stop us from going here. I try to support her little business. I have noticed the restaurant is less busy now that she raised her prices.
