Mini Malaysia1196 Lansdowne Drive, Coquitlam
Cafe style Malaysian food
Submitted Sunday, December 9, 2007 - 11:23pm [Dine in]

We got food from here the second time only a few weeks ago. First time we ate in. I have to admit the ambience is quite poor, resembling a run down cafe if anything. You have to put that behind you as the food is very reasonable and certainly worth eating. It is not on par like something with Tropica or Banana Leaf, though it is worth trying and coming back for.

It is a family run place at one of the corners in 'Eagle Ridge Mall.' You have to drive to the centre of this small shop zone to find it. The rotis here are actually yummy with a delicious sauce to come with it. The curries are OK. I personally am not a big fan of meat on bone curries and nothing really comes off bone here. We had take out a few weeks ago. If you think about it, there is no authentic Malaysian place within miles of Coquitlam. Therefore if you put the cafe style place behind you and keep an open mind, you will realize the food is OK.

Frog & Nightgown Pub1125 Falcon Drive, Coquitlam
A nice family pub though full of cigarette smoke!
Submitted Sunday, December 9, 2007 - 11:09pm [Dine in]

My wife and I wanted to have pub food and watch the hockey game on Saturday night. I created a profile for this place today. The place itself looks nice from outside and in. What perturbed us a little was walking into this pub and getting our faces into pungent layers of cigarette smoke.

The food was OK, not super. The best thing I had was the calamari. The batter was nice and crispy and portion was huge! Came with nice pita break and dip. I had ahi tuna for main which was a little too blackened! The room in which we ate was a no smoking area though it is amazing how cigarette smoke just drifted in here and impregnated the place.

My wife and I were quite ill when we got home with our clothes being smothered in cigarette smoke which we loathe. We had to shower when we got home. Simply because of the smoke in this pub, we will not go back. If you love smoke (ha!), you may like the place. I am sure you may be in minority though!

Pallas Athena1250 Dominion Ave, #101, Port Coquitlam
A very nice Greek restaurant!
Submitted Sunday, December 9, 2007 - 10:45pm [Dine in]

We ate here this evening, Dec 9, 2007, the first time using our entertainment coupon. The coupon is pretty generous, giving you $17 off. The ambience inside was warm, pleasant and certainly classy with the black and white decor.

Service was very good and attentive. The servers were also quite jovial and seemed proud of what they do which is always nice to see. We had roast lamb shank for main course and lamb chops. The main course is most generous as you receive a Greek or Caeser salad to start along with pita and tzatziki. The meat was certainly high quality and well cooked with good flavour.

Right in the Save Foods complex with easy parking right outside the restaurant.

Rehanah's Roti & Trinidadian2518 St. Johns St, Port Moody
Very authentic food
Submitted Thursday, November 22, 2007 - 8:43pm [Dine in]

Went to eat here the first time today as I pass it all the time in the car. The owner/cook, Rehanah, is originally from Pakistan, though has lived in Trinidad for many years. She has had this place for 10 years. Not open for dinner as she finds little customers come in after 6pm, hence open from 11am - 6pm. The meat rotis are very big & filling and range from beef, chicken and goat. There are many vegetarian varieties too. Rehanah obviously cares for her food and customers and I was very pleased with the quality and taste of the food. You can chose to have the food mild, medium or hot.

Little Thailand2335 St. Johns Street, #1-2, Port Moody
Very pleasantly surprised
Submitted Friday, November 9, 2007 - 3:47am [Dine in]

My wife and I dined here Wednesday evening, Nov 7, 2007. We recently moved from downtown Vancouver to Coquitlam so finding the level of food we were used to there difficult to come by over here. We were curious about Little Thailand and decided to go in. From outside the place is very cafe looking. We were greeted by a young guy who warmly welcomed us in.

They do not have a liquor license though I was ecstatic when our server told me I could run across the road to buy beer and bring it in here. This 'feature' is very much missed here in BC and I know this is rife in Europe and Australia. We order Tom Kai Gai soup to start with and it was yummy! We had a rice dish and a Penang Curry for main. We were very, very thrilled with the food. Top quality, cooked by Thai chef too. Prices were very reasonable too. We will be going back regularly now! If you love Thai food, this place has to be tried!

Rozzini's2810 St. Johns Street, Port Moody
A very confused restaurant
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 9:37pm [Dine in]

My wife and I ate here, today, Oct 20, on a Saturday night. The decor needs some serious attention with deep, heavy red paint everywhere, making it look quite depressing.

The menu has pictures of some of their food in a rather tacky plastic folder. There is much confusion here with what is served. With a name like this, it would point to Italian cuisine, though there are Indian dishes, Greek and Italian served here. It is a family run place, though some of the ingredients are NOT fresh. We observed someone getting cream with their dessert from a pressurized can bought from some grocery store.

The food was OK, though the rice we had with our dishes was not pleasant. It had a bitter taste to it. I question whether the deep fried prawn I had for my main meal was fresh or from the freezer into the deep fryer! The service is pleasant enough though.

We saw some people that wanted to dine here, though they came in the front door took a brief look around and walked out; I applaude them for doing this. Certainly a place we will not be revisiting.

Simba's Grill7413 Edmonds Street, Burnaby
A totally different kind of dining experience and worth it!
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 7:13pm [Dine in]

Eaten at their Vancouver location and very similar:

You have to really appreciate this type of Afro-East Indian cuisine. I am actually East Indian, though born and raised in England so have a very varied palate. This place rocks for the variety and imagination with their food. Totally delicious grilled meats and delicasies. The ugali curries and to die for and would thoroughly recommend them to you. Servings are good, service is very home-like and would most certainly recommend it to you. If you are not into spicy food and like the plain type variety, this is not for you. If you are adventurous and want a totally unique dining experience, get this stuff down into your stomach; it will settle very nicely!

Sui Sha Ya Japanese Restaurant2991 Lougheed Highway, Coquitlam
One of the worst Sushi places we have been to
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 7:03pm [Dine in]

Well, opinions are opinions, though having eaten at many sushi places all over the Vancouver area, this has to be on the worst! The Sui Sha Ya on Broadway is very good and we thought this place would reflect that of their Vancouver counter part. We went on a Saturday night and there were people waiting at the door.

My wife ordered chicken donburi. We rarely send food back to the kitchen and this was a dish we just had to. The meat was terrible fatty and undercooked! How dangerous is that?!! The sushi was seconds rate and the service was unattentive and lacklustre.

Coquitlam is certainly void of sushi places that meet the quality of downtown ones, though this is one place to AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Good food but pricy
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 6:52pm [Dine in]

Been to many Thai places around the Lower Mainland and this place is right next to Save on Foods. It is hard to tell what the place looks like inside from out as they normally always have dark blinds covering the windows. The ambience is nice inside and quite intimate. Food is actually very good, though you certainly pay a premium for it. Been to many other places with the same quality though lower prices.

Kimono Japanese Restaurant869 Hornby Street, Vancouver
A very reliable place to have sushi
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 6:45pm [Dine in]

Our Favourite Sushi place - and we have eaten at tons of others!
With the myriad of sushi places in the Lower Mainland, this is by far one of our most favourite, if not THE favourite? We do have favourites in the city, though this place is excellent value for money, food quality, variety and service. The sushi is top notch here.

We live in Coquitlam now as we recently moved from Vancouver dowtown and are happy to make the trip here because we know the sushi is top notch here.

Nagano Japanese Restaurant2918 Glen Dr, Coquitlam
Not impressed
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 6:37pm [Dine in]

I guess having been spoiled with the myriad of Sushi places downtown Vancouver we were most disappointed with this place. We went on a Friday night when it was quite busy, so attention to customers by the staff was certainly lacking. There was a sense of apathy among the staff even still.

The food was OK, but more pricy than most places we have been to downtown Vancouver. With the Coquitlam area having less sushi places than the Vancouver area, competition is not so harsh and we feel this is a factor with higher prices here. This place was a once off for us.

Worth eating here for sure
Submitted Saturday, October 20, 2007 - 6:27pm [Dine in]

My wife and I are new members to Dine Here though have eaten in many places in Vancouver, the surrounding area and in many countries. We love Thai food and we recently moved from downtown Vancouver to Coquitlam. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and prices at this place. The ambience needs attention as it is not of a typical, initimate Thai restaurant; it is more like a canteen. Despite this we would most certainly give it our thumbs up with the lovely food here. Easy parking outside too.
