Ki Sushi31 8th St, New Westminster
Love this spot.
By Haneurii of Burnaby / New West (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, June 25, 2011 - 3:36am [Dine in]

I've been going to Ki-Sushi for about year because of the convenient location. I love the new place. I do agree with many people that certain days of the week or hours of the day, the service could be a lot better. There was a time where one of the waitresses had this rude attitude towards a question about certain rolls to my friend... but other then that, they have been very friendly every time I have gone with a few to a quite large group of friends.

I am pretty surprised on the quality of most of their food (well seasoned and decent portions) and essentially the good speed, to me it's not too fast and not too quick, and I actually like the fact the waitress leaves us alone when we are trying to decide on what to order (it's boring and lame to constantly order the same thing repeatedly).

The new location you can see the handful of (dominantly men from what I remember) making sushi. There are enough that I think they have a convenient line-cook style like method, because most of the fancy rolls are just fancy California rolls so I think. some of them make California rolls constantly... The only real disappointment is that their fancy rolls are essentially just overpriced California rolls... the outside is the fancy additional flavor.. and to me it's too expensive just to have a pretty outside of a roll.

I have tried their chicken and beef teriyaki and I LOVE it there - their okonomiyaki is not traditional it's more "Chinese style" as my friends and I call it (so if you're looking for the real thing, I suggest you avoid it). Another thing that has bothered me is that their menu is very inefficient, it would be great if they revised the menu and actually put in detail the contents of each roll (mainly for people who have a few things they are picky about or are allergic to, or even prefer and find interesting). The most inefficient thing of all is that they only have one area to pay - people paying separately, people getting and paying for take-out... It gets very full and having to wait for five minutes or more just to pay is really annoying.

Heritage Grill447 Columbia, New Westminster
Don't eat here

We ordered drinks and the 'Unique Platter' ($22) which is basically large oval plate piled with several tastings of HG's appetizers. Everything except for the mixed greens salad was lackluster and tasted bland as though the person who made it forgot to add (at the very least) the salt and pepper. Crab cakes were more cake than crab. Bruschetta was like eating cheap white day-old french bread sliced with unseasoned chopped tomato mix (no garlic, no olive oil drizzle, no warmth from the bread). Stuffed mushrooms were watery. Presentation D-. If you're going to serve a platter of different appetizers, don't just place them on a plate and call it a day. And if you're going to serve guacamole, at the very least squeeze lemon juice on the advocado before it oxidizes because brown guacamole don't look pretty especially if it's unceremoniously plopped on top of the mixed greens.

The drink special was Vodka slimes (vodka, club soda, lime). But they f**ked that up too by adding lime cordial.

Waffle House636 Sixth Street, New Westminster
AVOID - Waitress doesn't wash her hands... EW.

Since starting work in burnaby/new west a year ago I would periodically stop in at the Wafflehouse for breaky before work. Everything was fine, decent service and food...

Until one day I was in the bathroom and watched as the waitress left without washing her hands. If she doesn't even wash her hands after doing her business who knows how else she handles food? Disgusting.

Emailed the manager, no reply. Doesn't seem to care to be losing someone who was becoming a repeat customer.

Meh

Submitted Sunday, June 19, 2011 - 3:17pm [Dine in]

Surprisingly poor meal. The restaurant has a nice design and our waiter was great, but at the end of the day the food is what matters, and to be honest ... it kind of sucks. When your business is seafood, you should probably figure out how to cook it in a palatable fashion. I hope all the Boathouses aren't like this one ... Needless to say, I won't be back ... ever.

Cockney Kings Fish & Chips66 10th St, #130, New Westminster
worst service
By doomhammer of New Westminster BC (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, June 7, 2011 - 4:11pm [Dine in]

I go to this restaurant almost all the time and I have to say that this place served the WORST today. I went there (I was alone), sat down on chair and ready to take my order. However, there were two young female servers who were about high school girls, igonored my table and keep chatting with other employees. I was keep sitting on chair and looking at them but they just ignored me. One of them was serving customer who came 10 minutes after I came in and the other one was just talking with other employees and served other customers who came 20 minutes after I came in and sat down on chair. This is NOT fair because I came in first and ready to take order but those young female servers didnot even make an eye contact to me and kept helping other customers. I have to say that their service was very horrible. In fact, I used to go this restaurant many times, when I had very great female server who served better but this was the first time today where I got igonored by different young female servers. I'm not saying bad about them, but what im trying to say is that please be respect other person espeically to the customers whose waiting to take order WITHOUT ingore them.

Yianni's Greek Taverna543 Sixth Street, New Westminster
Disappointing effort
By AliH of New Westminster (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, May 30, 2011 - 10:42am [Dine in]

I went to Yiannis on Saturday night with a friend from out of town. He always looks for Greek food when he is in the city. I had read the reviews of all the local Greek places and decided to give Yianni's largely based largely on the reviews here. The ambience was fine and our server was very good. No fault there at all. The food however was a huge letdown. His Saganaki was a greasy mess (and he was very disappointed that it wasn't "flaming"). I ordered the lamb souvlaki (over cooked) with extra salad instead of rice. I should not have bothered - the salad was bland and lifeless and very poorly presented. My friend's meal ( the garlic prawn dinner) arrived in two plates - one loaded with the salad, rice and an anemic looking potatoe, with the prawns in a bowl on the side. Really??? My quest for a decent Greek restaurant in New West continues.

Be careful what you order
By Panda1985 of Squamish (6 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 27, 2011 - 9:22am [Dine in]

I used to live right around the corner from this place and I ate there a handful of times. Their rolls are reasonable, especially the yam tempura roll and those type. I had a few sketchy experiences with nigiri and spicy tuna roll, so order carefully especially when it doesn't look busy in there. I prefer Top Sushi down the road from this one.
The value for money is fine - this place is not overpriced. The service is average, but the staff is reasonably friendly and courteous. No complaints there.
The california rollers will love this place, but adventurous types beware.

Birthday dinner
By victory66 of Burnaby (35 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, May 20, 2011 - 10:17pm [Dine in]

Had my birthday dinner there tonight and was very pleased with the food and pleasantly impressed with the service. I had the roast lamb, which was cooked very nicely with a good amount of sauce and seasoning. The meat literally fell off the bones, and didn't require the steak knife that was brought out with my dinner. My friends also complimented their food (two had the lamb souvlaki and one had the calamari dinner) and each said their meals were very good. The entrees were extemely filling (they all came with rice, roast potatoes, Greek salad, vegetables and Greek pita bread) and all of us were glad that we had not ordered appetizers as it would have been too much food. The waitress who attended to our table was absolutely incredible. We found her to be attentive, without being too intrusive. Even though she seemed to be very young, I would not be shocked to find her working in a high-end, fine-dining establishment! At the end of our dinner, she came to let me know that it was usual to offer a dessert (either Ek Mek or Baclava) complimentary for the birthday person. I requested the Ek Mek and she included extra forks for the rest of the party. We all found the dessert to be absolutely wonderful and we were happy to be able to try it. All in all I enjoyed the meal and will definitely return (especially as I do live in the area now)!

Marble Slab Creamery805 Boyd Street, Unit J150, New Westminster
This time not so much
By 54321 of Richmond (26 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 17, 2011 - 8:57pm [Take-out]

Have been to other Marble slabs before, having always enjoyed what I ordered and always having really great and friendly service. There were two people working and a couple customers getting ready to leave when we arrived. We made our choices and informed the guy behind the counter. He had to look to see what the ingredients were for what we ordered. They were out of the ice cream for the choice that hubby made and the boy mumbled this under the sound of the fans. I had to explain to hubby that he had to make another choice. He made hubby's second choice and then asked me again what mine was, he had forgotten.

I had the snicker-doodle (snickers with caramel and white ice cream). It was not impressive. Overall, $13 for two medium ice creams was neither worth the ice cream nor the service.

The food is good - not incredibly special, but solid. Flavorful and satisfying. Nice selection, and they tend to tweak your order if you ask.
Delivery is great - quick and great staff. Never rude.
The prices are a bit up there but not too bad. Can't say I feel cheated.
Very comforting food when you're tired of sushi and Chinese stir fry.

The delivery people are quite friendly and deliver your order pretty quickly.
The food is good, not the most amazing pizza but good and creative. The prices really work for someone who's not able to fine dine every day of the week.
I like their pizza sauce and thin crusts.
Very decent place to order from if you have lots of people over and family.

BYOBreakfast
By doughgirl of New Westminster (45 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, May 3, 2011 - 8:58pm [Dine in]

Went here Saturday, April 23rd, for a 9:00 a.m. breakfast. Great time to arrive as my friend & I had the place to ourselves - a half hour later a steady stream of guests began to fill this eclectically decorated, approximately 6-table, eatery.
My friend & I ordered 2 menu items off the menu 'wall' (there were no menu cards). So that we could try each item, we were going to share. To our pleasant surprise, the cook/host served us each a plate of half a blueberry waffle and half an order of eggs benny. Presentation was beautiful, with attention to garnishing. Plus, the butter was already spread on the waffle and melted by the time the plate came to me, which is exactly how I like to eat a waffle. (I tipped very generously because of this.)
They offer something called a "BYOBreakfast". Its their way of inviting you to "Build Your Own Breakfast", without your doing any of the cooking yourself. They also offer gluten-free bread. Come here for breakfast or lunch (not open for dinner).
When I return, I plan to eat outside on the sidewalk patio. The cooking smells are quite strong - I had to change and take a shower after my visit. But compared to the neighbouring restaurants, the quality of the food, cooking, and presentation is outstanding and very competitively priced.

lunch meeting with my old friend, and though Kirin's food should not fail me, but all dim sums tasted lousy, besides a few steamed dim sum, I also ordered seafood congee and crab noodles, congee is tastless like pain congee, and crab noodle is a crap! when taking the bill, I told them about the noodle and they made me another one to bring home, but still tasted and looked disappointing. They should hire a new cook but I will not go there again.

Cockney Kings Fish & Chips66 10th St, #130, New Westminster
Great Fish and Chips!
By Julumkana of Coquitlam, B.C. (52 Reviews)
Submitted Friday, April 22, 2011 - 5:58pm [Take-out]

I've been eating fish and chips at Cockney kings for a long time, 10 or more years. No complaints about the food. It's awsome. If i am taking out, i usually call in my order so i don't have to wait. This has really annoyed me in my last few visits. When i go to pick up the food, shouldn't the order be already cooked? Instead i pay for the order and then they cook it. What's the point of me calling in my order? Why do they even take phone orders? I just end up waiting anyways.

The girl at the counter was totally clueless and had no customer service skills whatsoever. My order was ready and sitting on the counter and nobody even told me the order was ready or anything. Looks like all they care about is taking the order and collecting the money. Serving you the product is not very important as long as they have your cash.

I find the service is better and more professional at the Hastings location. Cheers to you guys.

been here a couple of times, different each time. i have found it's better to wait till it's not so busy.. not busy food was great always buy halibut and chips... when it's busy they don't let the fish stand after it comes out of the fryer, so the oil can drain they just put it on the chips and wrap it up end result. too greasy.

Java Jazz Cafe and Bistro412 Sixth Street, New Westminster
Great place to eat and relax and listen to FREE Jazz Music
By QZSPRW of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, April 14, 2011 - 4:08pm [Dine in]

The service and food is good and there is no cover charge for great live music. I see some reviews mention this and that but they have to take into account that normally the cover charge would be something like $5 to $10 for such live quality music. Yes it's true many of the musicians don't get paid because, as I know some of them, they didn't ask to be paid and they are there for several reasons, because they are practicing new material and\or they are retired and just enjoy getting together and playing with their group, or sometimes you get new up and coming performers who want to practice their craft before headin out on the road...etc. I have always had a great musical experience there for sure.

Great place to relax after a busy day and unwind to the live musical experience. Depending on where you are sitting, you can actually reach out and touch the muscians! :)

I have always had a good time and good service.

I've been to Ki Sushi 7 or 8 times now. It's just a couple of blocks from Douglas College in New Westminster where I go to school. While Ki Sushi is quite good, there is really nothing exceptional about it. The food is enjoyable, and the service is what I generally tend to expect in an average sushi place; you're treated politely and courteously but the actual service is fairly slow. Their lunch menu is actually quite good value for the money. I would go back again if I was in the area and wanted sushi, but I probably wouldn't make it a destination.

Avoid disappointment
By darth8411 of Richmond , BC (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, April 9, 2011 - 5:10pm [Take-out]

Don't usually write reviews but really need to express my disappointment with this place. Was on my lunch break on a Friday and thought I would grab a take out box and head back to work. Place was not particularly busy, 4 orders in front of mine. It took 21 minutes to get my order despite 3 wok cooks and the 2 guys out front. They all looked very busy, but sure were not very productive.

If it was right and tasted good, I wouldn't have been too upset, but first they put noodles instead of rice which I requested. The noodles were undercooked, talking chewy, and the top must have come off the oil bottle because of the amount of oil in it. Ordered the Szechuan pepper chicken and all I could taste was garlic. The egg roll I ordered with the meal was refried and close to burned. For the 10 bucks I paid, could have splurged on a large Pho down the road. The portion size was pathetic for the amount the charged.

In summary, STAY AWAY! Do yourself a favor and grab an a&w burger or quizno's sandwich instead.
