Roo's Pub2962 Christmas Way, Coquitlam
Definitely a younger crowd here
Submitted Saturday, April 9, 2011 - 10:52pm [Dine in]

My wife and I went here the first time on a Saturday night, also Canucks hockey game night. I called the pub up about an hour before and I was told reservations were made a week ahead in light of the last regular Canucks game night.

Several tables were still empty when we arrived at 6.45pm though all reserved. We found space at one of the bar sections and were warmly greeted. Right next to us was a bunch of drunk teens playing pool rather recklessly. The ball flew off the table a few times as they were smashing the pool balls so hard. No one did anything about this.

Our appies and main course came all at once as the quality of the food was not too bad at all. Regular pub fair for sure. I liked how our server was watching our drinks and would have them refilled near our last glasses being empty.

We certainly felt a little older in this pub as the crowd was mostly in the late teens/early twenties. Overall my wife and I would prefer sticking with Samz down the road. Worthwhile trying this place if you have not been here though.

Good food and service, but definitely over priced
Submitted Tuesday, July 6, 2010 - 11:06pm [Dine in]

My wife and I went here on a Sunday evening and we had our $10 Entertainment Coupon with us for this place.

We ordered Moroccan wings to start with. We ended up returning them as they were bland despite the description on the menu saying they were spicy. The portion though was a good size though. We swaped the wings for chicken satays which were nice, juicy & had some spice to them.

For main course we both had ribs. The portion again was pretty big. We both could not finish. The service was very good, though it was pretty empty that Sunday evening we were there.

We would be reluctant to go back again purely because the food is over priced here.

Definitely our favourite Chinese restaurant

We have got take out from here a couple of times now. All I can say is the quality and taste of the food here is exceptional. Their spicy wontons in peanut sauce are to die for. Their ginger beef is just as good. Whilst we sat and waited for our take out we did notice we were well attended to. You can't go wrong with this Szechuan food. 10% off your bill if you pick your food up.

A little bit disappointed
Submitted Sunday, May 16, 2010 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

My wife and I just got back from eating dinner on a Sunday night at Milestones, Coquitlam. We had no appies and went right into entrees. We both had steaks. My wife had 'Regular cut prime rib' and I had 'three sauces Angus beef cut.'

Service, I must admit was great. Very attentive, personal and to a high standard. Our orders were taken quickly and food arrived shortly after. My beef cut was a bit tough, though certainly not as bad as my wife's. Hers was very fatty & not cooked to order. The server could sense this and my wife made a comment about her steak. We ended up getting free desert as a result.

We have both been to the Keg in Coquitlam and steaks are definitely better over there.

Hear the review from someone that is East Indian, me!
Submitted Saturday, May 1, 2010 - 12:05am [Dine in]

My wife and I went here a few weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon. We were curious to try the new Indian place in Poco. I thought the decore inside was rather dull and the drapes were really gaudy.

We ordered samosas, veggie and chicken. The veggie ones were OK, but the chicken ones had meat in them that was rather dry. There was not much taste to them either.

My wife had a veggie main dish which she really liked. I had mixed grill. I was looking quite forward to it. The mixed grill literally came out a mixed grill. All the meats were pilled up on each other and everything was mixed up like a curry. I tasted the chicken and it was bland and dry. I then moved over to the lamb. I almost threw up as it was so dry and tasted horrible. I asked the manager to take it back. She agreed the lamb was very dry as she pulled it apart in the kitchen.

Oddly enough the manager/owner here is a vegetarian so how can she assess how good the food is. I would only come back here to eat veggie food and nothing else! Eat the meat dishes with your own peril!

First time we tried this place on Saturday night - Hockey night
Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 5:52pm [Dine in]

My wife and I tried this place the first time. We got here 6.45pm, just before the hockey game and there was literally one table left. TV screen are everywhere so you get a good view of the game if you are into that.

Despite being really busy service was quick and attentive. We had hot wings to start with and they were really nice. My wife had a beef sandwich for main and I had beef quesadillas. They were not that spicy as I had hoped but they were not bad either. My wife took her leftovers home and had it the next day.

There were beer specials on Saturday night which was good. I would certainly go back here.

Submitted Tuesday, April 13, 2010 - 3:41pm [Dine in]

My wife and I came here on a Friday night. It was packed. We were lucky to get a table.

The service was very quick but not so personal. I was more surprised how quickly the food came out even when it was so busy. This led me to believe the food was either not fresh or just reheated quickly. We had one of the soups, Pad Thai and one of their curries. All were quite fiery.

Having said that I thought the quality of the food was OK. We took home leftovers too.

Was here for men's gold medal hockey game, Canada vs. USA
Submitted Thursday, March 18, 2010 - 7:47pm [Dine in]

Our friends came early Sunday morning to grab a table. I know pubs and bars downtown Vancouver had massive line ups well before the game started though did not know this place would be super busy too.

We have never gone inside this pub until Feb 28, 2010. From the outside this place does not look that great, though when you go inside it is quite impressive. There are big TV screens in every corner of this pub. The seats and tables are really nice too. It is really cosy inside.

People were ordering drinks and food pretty well as soon as they got in early Sunday morning. Soon this place got packed out with no seats left and standing room only. I guess that was to be expected.

Even though this place was super busy we got incredible, swift service. The manager came on the PA to say getting food to tables may take a little longer than normally as they were so busy. Having said that we got our food pretty quickly and our server would always make sure we were all happy despite having to attend to many more tables.

The pub gave us freebies to enjoy the hockey game more which was a nice touch. The manager came on the PA several times to make sure everyone was doing well. I thought his candour was very appropriate and well received.

The food was pretty decent too. When Canada won the gold medal we all got a free pint of Canadian. This place obviously looks after its clients and wants to make sure you do come back.

Disgusting food - stay away!
Submitted Sunday, February 21, 2010 - 10:32pm [Dine in]

My wife and I have lived downtown for about 6 years. We recently moved to Coquiltam but came downtown today to find somewhere we could watch the Canada vs. USA hockey game.

We had to arrive a few hours early prior to the game. There were big line ups outside every bar you could name. Some of the staff here were very cold and really could not care less how they served you.

We started with calamari. When it arrived I was puzzled by the really dark colour. When I tasted it the calamari was greasy and tasted as if it had been around for a whole week.

Unphased, my wife ordered fish and chips and I got a buffalo burger. My burger was dry and tasted horrid. My wife's fish and chips were no better; greasy with a terrible taste.

We had to get in somewhere to watch the hockey game but we were so unfortunate to come across a place that has terrible food and service.

Very good food and service but over priced
Submitted Thursday, December 24, 2009 - 1:08am [Dine in]

We had a family dinner here this evening. I was impressed with the service and the way we were treated on arrival. Whilst we waited for our family and friends to arrive my wife and I were remarking on the high prices for each food item.

Whilst we were not paying the bill we were still congizant of the food prices. Entrees average around $40 each. Having said that I must admit the quality of the food was spectacular. We were also waited on hand and foot whilst we ate on a busy evening.

I would say this place is a bit exorbitant, though if really want to make sure you dine at a fine Italian place then this is it.

Real authentic South Indian food
Submitted Sunday, March 29, 2009 - 6:17pm [Dine in]

Hi there, this comes from someone who is Indian and has be raised on foods like this place serves. The dosas are incredible and certainly very well priced. Some people obviously do not know how they should be appearance wise and the filling. These guys serve you an authentic dosa and they come in many different varieties. The idly I had was also very good and well priced.

I would really recommend this place to anyone looking for South Indian cuisine.

An overated 'want to be' restaurant
Submitted Thursday, August 21, 2008 - 5:29am [Dine in]

My wife and I went here on our wedding anniversary, Aug 14, 2008, a warm Thursday evening and sat outside on the patio.

We booked our table a few daya in advance and was glad in a way as the place was pretty full. The menu is rather limited and the main thing is prices are far too high for the quality of food they serve.

We had their muscles to begin our meal which were OK. I had lamb rack which was OK too, though nothing special for main course. My wife had to settle for their stuffed chicken, which again, was nothing special.

At least we know that this restaurant falls below par for sure and will not be returning. We really only went here to judge this place for ourselves and concur with the majority of other writers. This place tries to be a fine dining place in part of the Lower Mainland that has little to offer in that area.

The food IS great, though remember this is really take out, not dine in!
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2008 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

Been here a few times now and the samosas are certainly amazing. They have a very crispy shell, not at all oily and have a centre that is unlike any other samosa I have tried elsewhere.

I have tried some other snacks from here and they too are wonderful. This place really is take out. You have to wait a bit to get your food as they prepare everything fresh, though is worth the wait.

It is a hole in the wall, though if put that aside and just go home and eat this food you will not be disappointed. This comes from someone that is East Indian also!

Superb, authentic and different Indian food!
Submitted Friday, July 18, 2008 - 12:36pm [Dine in]

Well first off, I am East Indian and have grown up eating this food since my mother is an awesome cook and she has her own business making Indian and other foods for supermarkets in Australia.

This place is definitely authentic and the spice blends are certainly what your palate desires, especially if you are looking for an Indian place that serves food with a difference.

My wife and I had the Halyari Chicken which is totally different blend of spices cooked in the tandoor. Magnificent is all I can say!

We also had the Goan lamb curry which was very delicious. Service was very attentive, polite and friendly. Nice ambience too. Certainly going to be one of our favourite Indian restaurants in the Lower Mainland.

Submitted Wednesday, June 25, 2008 - 11:00pm [Dine in]

My wife and I ate here first time this evening. It has a beautiful patio with a superb view. Problem is some inconsiderate people still think they smoke right next to you. Hello new by-law! Smokers: you have to be 30 feet away from entrance to patio.

We had the hot wings to start with and were awesome. Wife had pasta which was a bit overcooked. I had the quesadilla which was OK, a tad too dry I thought.

Great range of beers to wet your appetite. They have beer specials every day too. Had the Frog Nut Brown which was lovely.

I added this place to the profile as was not showing up. This place can be found among the shops in the Parkway area of Coquitlam just off Johnson going towards Westwood Plateau.

My wife and I eat here regulary as the quality of food, service and prices rock. They have great variety and nice boxes. Sushi is always fresh and we have never left unhappy in the 10 times we have bee here.

You won't be disapppointed. Lots of take out from here too.

Great food if your ambience expectations are not too high!
Submitted Saturday, February 23, 2008 - 2:46pm [Dine in]

You have to eat from this place with an open mind. When you look from outside it is certainly very cafe and kitchen like. So, don't go in expecting it should miracously change to The Five Sails at Pan Pacific!

The quality of the food IS great. Everything is prepared fresh and they have some very unique and authetic dishes. It was not surprising to see many people come in and out getting take-outs.

Prices of the food was very reasonable. You do come out smelling like a curry pot, but hey, this is an Indian joint. We complimented the cook on her cooking and she was very pleased to hear this. I am East Indian, so trust me when I say this IS good food here.

My wife and I ate here Wednesday night last week, Feb 20. It was reasonably busy mid week and we got to know why; the food IS good!

Seems like a family run place and the service was pretty good and attentive. The quality of the food was excellent, everything fresh and yummy. We can chimichangas for main course and they really filled us up.

Will definitely make this our regular Mexican place to eat. Value for money was excellent too.

Exquisite fine dining
Submitted Tuesday, January 22, 2008 - 3:45am [Dine in]

My wife and I had dinner here on Boxing Day 2007. The place itself is actually rather small though certainly had a nice, decadent atmosphere.

We opted for the 4 course lobster dinner. They gave us 1.5 lbs lobster each in different courses. The first was actually a tiny piece of lobster marinated in this delicious sauce. I believe there was soup like one for second course and the meal progressed with bigger portions, all cooked in very different ways. Each course was heaven and have certainly not had lobster served like this or taste the way it did. This course was about $65 or $70 per person though was well worth it. I think we had dessert too which was also very pleasant. You can't go wrong here, though for 2 people we paid about $220 before tip!!

My wife and I tried this place on a Wednesday evening which happens to be 'all you can eat ribs night.' You pay $26.99 for all you can eat ribs. The full rack comes with 12 good sized ribs and for $25.99 and the regular rack, 6 ribs, $19.99. Comes with beans and choice of one side. Was OK, the meat did not fall off the bone like it can at places like Dix in Yaletown. Service was OK, though I can sure see food and service being variable here.
