New Westminster Restaurant Reviews
Hon's Wun Tun House408 6th Street, New Westminster
Favorite for Chinese Take-out
By millar of New Westminster, Vancouver (77 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, February 7, 2011 - 2:33pm [Take-out]

Hon's is my favorite restaurant in New West for Chinese take-out. I prefer it to dining in, as they are very busy so when you dine in you feel a bit rushed to sit, eat and leave.

I don't think the menu has changed in 10 years so you find your favourite dishes and stick with them. Try the Beef lettuce wrap, BBQ pork, Deep-fried boneless chicken with crushed almond, Buddhist feast of Vegetables, House chow mein, Dry Garlic spareribs.

Remember to ask if they've included soy sauce, napkins, etc when you pick it up as take-out is always busy and these things sometimes get forgotten.

DOV

Submitted Sunday, February 6, 2011 - 11:20pm [Dine in]

I have been here a few times and everything is usually solid. However I went there this past Friday and unfortunately I can no longer say that. Went to DOV with some friends. Had to ask for the DOV menu it was like it was some secret there, if you didn't ask they were not going to tell you. In fact the busboy acted surprised we even knew about DOV when we asked him for the menu. Ordered the Westcoast Seafood Chowder, 10oz Steak w/lobster thermidor and the New York Cheesecake. The Chowder was not very good at all and what I want to know is where was the seafood? Other than the 3 mussels they put for garnish, my soup was just cream, there was not one potato or identifiable seafood in it. It was 3 cold mussels and cream. The steak I ordered medium ended up being raw & the lobster thermidor had a very small piece of overly salted lobster hidden amongst a few prawns. I had to return my dish to have the steak cooked. The New York cheesecake was good, no complaints there. They did comp my dessert because of the steak issue, which was nice, but not enough for me to go back.

Tora Sushi805 Boyd Street, #120K, New Westminster
13 bucks for less than cafeteria sushi?
By Burgerandbrew of Surrey (32 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, February 3, 2011 - 6:02pm [Take-out]

I used to volunteer in a cafeteria (we learned how to make food such as sushi, steaks, soups, and product prices) and the sushi I made there and didn't pay for was better than this. The rice was dry, the seaweed was drier, the avocado was brown and mush, the prawn tempura in the dynamite was EXTREMELY fishy tasting. While I was eating it I thought "it's places like this that turn people away from sushi forever". It was DISGUSTING and for 13 bucks at other places, especially new west you can get soooo much better (ki is decent just for example). If I hadn't left already i would have sent it back and refused to pay.

Tonight was pasta night so off we went. Upon ordering we were informed that our swarmjam vouchers were no good for the pasta specials. We were assured by swarmjam when we purchased the vouchers they were good for pasta night. Anyway I still had the pasta at regular price. Spaghetti and 3 meatballs $15 instead of $10. $5 won't kill me but it's the principle of the thing. Serving size was quite large. Pasta had cold spots throughout. How they managed that is a mystery to me. Not enough sauce on the pasta. Garlic bread arrived 5 minutes after the entree. Very nice ambiance, roomy and spacious. Seemed to be lots of tots enjoying a family night out. Friendly staff. I wanted to like it more than I did. A little more effort on BPs part might start reversing some of the bad reviews.

The meal deal offered here seemed attractive coming in. Everyone who chose the minestrone soup enjoyed their bowl. I had the salad, which was okay, featuring small pieces of lettuce mix identical to the kind I sometimes use in sandwiches. Their seafood fettucine alfredo was disappointing, showing up with nearly invisible shrimp and scallops.. the saving grace was the spinach pasta. Other pasta dishes were reported to not contain enough flavour. Come if you are craving sourdough bread.

Good enough for dinner with my wife

Submitted Thursday, January 27, 2011 - 6:38pm [Dine in]

This place is meh but I wasnt much disappointed. It was noisy but its cheap and this was a wife dinner. First of all, the service was slow (although we got our order -OK) and not much to look at as it took us about 28 minutes to get our pizzas which we ordered . Paying $ for what appears to be more bread and sauce is just crazy unless it is this cheap... We are not going to a steak house and this isnt a fate so more haste would have been nice. I have been to many restaurants and in my opinion it's a 2 star operation. I find it very strange how people are very new to reviewing giving this place five stars... Come on.. be real.

I've eaten at Burger Heaven many times over the last couple of years and they continue to turn out really first rate burgers. The beef is not overworked and there's always a good crust on the patty from proper frying. Salads have always been crisp and fresh. As a burger joint, it's one of the best in the Lower Mainland.

Absolutely TERRIBLE Service!!
By jnols of New Westminster BC (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, January 1, 2011 - 10:05pm [Dine in]

Was my first time to this place and the service was the absolute worst I have ever had at a sushi restaurant in my life! My girlfriend and I were seated and then left there for a solid 15 minutes before anyone came near us. We were just about to get up and leave but a waitress finally approached us. We decided to just put our full order in right away as we thought it would take forever to get our food. What I found funny was my sushi came about 1 minute after i ordered(definitely pre-made sushi). There was no way the sushi chef made it that fast. Also a couple of our items in our order were forgotten but once I told the waitress she finally brought them. I overheard the table next to us saying they had 3 things missing from there order as well.
The sushi itself was pretty good but not any better than any other place in New West I've tried. My girlfriend and I were attracted to try this place by the number of awards they have supposedly won in New West for best sushi place. I am VERY surprised they have won this many yearly awards. We will definitely stick to eating from King Sushi in New West.

I keep giving this place chance after chance but I'm always let down by the service. I've probably been here six or seven times this year and each time its been a bad experience. I have never been acknowledged under ten minutes after taking a seat and my cup is alwaysleft empty. I practically have to beg to get any service at this joint. Servers are stuck up and unfriendly. I have to ask for a menu and I have to wave someone down to take my order. Food service is incredibly slow. The only saving grace is the food which is reasonably solid. Still, its not enough for me to want to return after so many bad nights. I am not interested in spending money somewhere that ruins my mood.

Be warned: It is unspectacular. But you should come anyway because it's the only place around here with a menu dedicated to Taiwanese dishes. This should mean nothing to you unless you've spent time in Taiwan and miss it. Pork chops pound thin, then dipped in sweet potato starch and fried, colorful posterboard cutouts as wall decor, staff whom you suspect live above the restaurant or at least seem too "at home" and make no pretense about looking busy.

Dinner out
By TimOH of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, December 19, 2010 - 5:26pm [Dine in]

First time here but overall, disappointing. All window tables are situated below and as a result were cold - most people we saw at these tables were wearing jackets. Menu options were limited - only 2 kinds of salads are offered. When we asked if they had a garden salad they asked to us to describe what this was and although they did prepare one for us, it had a disappointing outcome. Very few alternative options to their garlic mashed potatoes (which were aweful).

Service was very slow and when we asked later on when we would be serviced our server told us that a large group was finishing up and we would be served soon but why didn't they mention this earlier???

The view across the river was nice but really, this was the only pleasant part of this experience. We will definitely not be going back and we recommend others to stay away!

Best Sushi in New West

Always the same friendly staff that welcome you upon arrival and thank you on you way out.

Sushi is the best in New West that I've tried and the price is the most reasonable.

I live nearby so I do pick up once a week. The price allows me to afford it! Only takes 15 minutes for pick up to be ready. The restaurant is usually pretty full with all ages of customers.

Current magazines and the daily newspaper available if you show up to order for take out. A nice flat screen tv with the hockey game on or a kids show if there are any toddlers in the store.

First, the weird stuff. The house is fronted by what I guess is a Sri Lankan couple. But, once you get over the incongruence and immerse yourself in the romantic atmosphere and the lilting German, the love affair begins. This small piece of Germanic Europe in New West serves great schnitzel and rouladen and beer. Full of geriatric Germans and a few intrepid youngin's looking to get in on the next food craze. Loved the Teutonic Maiden who served us beer. Fun and plenty.

Heaven Can Wait

Large pub styled burgers ranging from the basic, for $11 to $16, through to the ridiculous with eight patties at $29. We came with a buy one get one free (up to a $10 value) coupon widely available in the New West Recorder (Hence the 4 rating). I had the breakfast burger topped with a fried egg and paid $2 more for onion rings and wondered if the waitress ate half of them while walking it over to our table. The beef had an off taste which reminded me of frozen meat thawed quickly in a microwave. There was also an unpleasant taste to the fixings but I couldn't quite pinpoint it. Perhaps it was just an off day. I loved the decor with old photos of patrons from years past with their mullets, beach-themed tees, unironic moustaches and aviator sunglasses plastered all over the walls and under the glass top of tables. The waitress was part of this local institution and seemed to know everyone, including those in our party. Enjoyed the sincere, relaxed interaction.

Visited this location and was very excited cuz it looked cool from the outside. I spent 40 bucks for 3 dishes. Wow!!a little steep! I was quickly disappointed when I started to eat a little in the car. The flavors were horrible and it was not hot at all! Nice decor and concept but the food was too expensive and was totally manufactured. The food was not good at all and there is definately no value! Good luck Wok Box...Stay in alberta!

Although I do not frequent any restaurants these days i have had breakfast at Angelina's several times over the past 4.5 years. I enjoy it especially in the summer, outside, gazing at the river sitting in the sun with a cup of the good coffee. When sitting outside one can be forgotten but it is fine as the owners are such lovely people it does not mattter to me. I enjoy the poached eggs and potatoes and am very pleased on each occasion to have broken my fast there.

Good Vietnamese Pho
By victory66 of Burnaby (35 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, November 28, 2010 - 9:59pm [Dine in]

So went here with a couple of friends for a late Sunday night dinner. I had decided that I wanted to try the Pho as I have been looking for a decent Pho restaurant in New Westminster that is close to my neighbourhood. I found that the service was good but nothing spectacular. We placed our orders, including sharing the Vietnamese Spring Rolls. One friend had the Vietnamese Special combo meal, one friend had the Chicken & Broccoli on steamed rice and I had the Beef Ball & Steak Pho. All of the food was very good and came out very quickly. I really enjoyed the Pho and it came with a plate with lots of fresh bean sprouts, fresh lime and basil. The combo meal appeared to be really good as well with lots of of variety. We had lots of good hot tea and the pot was refilled at our request without any problems. But towards the end, the service declined as the workers all started to have their own dinner. Other than this, the food was tasty and really good value. I will definitely be back to try some of their other Vietnamese dishes.

Ole Ole Mexican Deli831 12th Street, New Westminster
Delicious Dishes, Perfect Prices
By flavour_saver of north burnaby, bc (1 Review)
Submitted Friday, November 26, 2010 - 12:29am [Dine in]

Ole Ole is a great place to get very some very tasty home style Mexican dishes at very reasonable prices. I'm aghast that anyone would say it's too expensive - the most expensive thing on the menu is $10! It's not a place you'll find foodies ooohing over presentation and hoping to be seen, but it is what your parents might have affectionately called a hole-in-the-wall. Just walk in and sit anywhere you like, the owner, a warm and friendly man, will greet you with a smile and the special of the day.

Tonight our table had: a plate of Nachos, 1 chicken flautas, 2 pork in a green chili sauce (today's special), 1 carnitas, and a quesadilla for the kid. The food arrived quickly and piping hot, and the owner even troubled himself to bring the kids meal first so the world's slowest eater might finish by the time we did. Everyone was delighted with their meal. We also had a couple coffees and hot chocolates, while the coffee was good the hot chocolate was outstanding - definitely order yourself a hot chocolate!

There are only one or two people working there at any time so you wouldn't want to take a large group - it would just be unreasonable to expect everyone's meal to be ready at the same time. I found it a little chilly and did keep my jacket on through dinner but I'm willing to assign at least some of the problem to the unbelievably cold winter we're experiencing.

I will absolutely return and highly recommend the restaurant to others. If you want hearty authentic Mexican food, you want Ole Ole.

I guess this is typical of a lot of Indian restaurants I've been to, great food, but poor service.
The food here is great, but be warned the dishes do not come with rice, you have to order that separate.
We had chicken curry and alu gobi with roti bread, yummy!

We had an entertainment coupon which made the price reasonable, but it is quite expensive.

The ambiance, pretty blah. But this places does mostly takeout.

All in all good food for a cold winter night.

Thought to myself, oh sweet wok box. I've given them 3 chances and tried different locations as well, absolutely will never go back. For what their serving and what they are charging....it just doesnt add up. I ordered a large take out shrimp and rice, I think there was like one shrimp in the entire box. And the rice tasted like it was in the fridge for a couple days then re-heated. I dont understand how they can mess up this menu, reads good on paper but taste so bland, and not consistent with their servings. Definitely a dream for people with no taste buds, who like boilded cabbage. I think their ingredients are the lowest, cheapest grade possible. Instead of paying aprox $11....their large box was worth maybe $4-5....and thats mostely labour. Never, ever go back.
