Ole Ole Mexican Deli831 12th Street, New Westminster
Disappointed
By carmina of New Westminster, B.C. (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, April 14, 2012 - 6:36pm [Dine in]

Always wanted to try this cute little mexican restaurant. Disappointed because there was very little of the meat/cheese in the dishes we ordered. Loads of tasty authentic mexican sauces but I practically had to dig to find any meat. The ambiance and service was great. Would not go back.

Better places to eat than here!
By craigslistretailer of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, April 12, 2012 - 1:10am [Dine in]

My husband and I came here for dinner and not very impressed.
We heard there was live music and dancing on Fridays and Saturday's. To some extent there was, however
The band only played for very short periods. The wrong food came to our table and when our food finaly did come, it was somewhat cold as it looked like it had been sitting for a while!The food is by far average, and the service was terribly slow (perhaps because they very obviously very understaffed!) when we left, the young manager had said good night to us and tried to thank us for coming. We obliged and had mention that our food and service was not the greatest. After he tried to apologize and ask us to come back again for a better experience, we said maybe (being polite), as he was clearly drunk and slurring when he was speaking! No thanks! Again, better places to eat the this place...

Boathouse Restaurant, The900 Quayside Dr, New Westminster
Worst service
By gklgkl of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, April 9, 2012 - 11:21pm [Dine in]

I've been to all boathouse restaurants, and it's our favorite restaurant over the last 20 years, HOWEVER, this new west location sucks in service! AVOID this location, Port Moody is the best in both food and service.  We were having hard time getting hold of the server whole time during our dinner and couldn't reserve the table by the window because they say it's only for party of up to 4 people.  The service ruined our dinner for all 6 of us on my mom's birthday. Foods were not compatible to other locations either. They need to clean the grill well before cooking, the over cooked prawn had dirty BBQ grill taste on it.

not what I expected
By Foodiesxraters of New Westminster BC (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, April 2, 2012 - 7:52pm [Dine in]

walking in we were met with a smiling face of a young lady just old enough to serve our drinks, too bad she carried them in her hands and not on a serving tray.
we were dissapointed with the appy a Singapore style calamari...they forgot the calamari! Lots of pineapples and tomato oozing in a starchy sauce.
I was again dissapointed with my main only because the menu stated roasted cashews,they were bulk unsalted peanuts.My friend had the Sirloin with asparagus,it was ok.
Not once were we asked about any part of our dinner, so while paying the waitress at the front of the house I let her and the boss/mgr/owner not sure he did not say :( know that we were dissapointed and not returning.
Sorry there are better Malaysian restaurants out there.

Ki Sushi31 8th St, New Westminster
Nice fresh japanese food
By NAVY MAN of Port Moody, Canada (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - 7:05pm [Dine in]

Our regular Oriental restaurant was closed for a wedding so we stumbled on the Ki by accident - it is one of four in this area and we flipped a coin.

Very small food, good service though specially for an Oriental joint but excellent value at $15 each. Small portions so count on that when you calculate value.

The Singapore noodles (I guess that is what they are called) are good and slurpy.

It seems to be very popular with the local Chinese and it filled up quickly after we arrived.

The Ki will now become our regular oriental restaurant

Eaten here for years not anymore
By Lainey Lajeunesse of new west minister (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, March 28, 2012 - 2:51pm [Dine in]

My husband and I have been going to this pub for about 10 years. The manager is great but the staff always is changing. The one review about mixed drinks is right. Always inconsistant and also the glasses are always dirty. I had to ask for 3 in a row the first one had lipstick on it the second a hair and dirt in the 3rd. We usually drink from bottles here. The food was ok nut now they put some sort of weird cole slaw that is just slapped together on the plate with the prime rib. Attitude with the waitress has to go maybe that is why there is such high turn over. They also have a stupid rule about subbing the coleslaw for another side or salad it is not allowed.

For the atmosphere I love sitting by the fire it is a very comfortable feeling.

Fabulous Dining Experience

Submitted Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 6:39pm [Dine in]

Went in for my moms birthday this past Saturday with a party of about 20, everyone enjoyed their food and the service was outstanding. The Ambiance was great and we all especially enjoyed the live band playing at the time. All in all the experience was a great one, the only downside to it all was the parking.....which is not really the best no matter where you go to in New West, but other then that I highly recommend this restaurant.

Yianni's Greek Taverna543 Sixth Street, New Westminster
Amazing Roast Lamb!
By Von_Delroy of New Westminster (31 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, March 12, 2012 - 11:45am [Dine in]

Greek food is not on our list of top 5 favorite cuisines, I doubt it is even on our top 10, but whenever we feel like roast lamb Yianni's is the only place for us. For $14.95 you get a huge chunk of slow roasted, falling off the bone, sweetly caramelized, perfectly spiced roast lamb - you cut into it with your knife and when you slowly navigate the fork to put a little piece in your already watering mouth, you know this is the roast lamb you have been waiting for all your life! Okay, I know I am laying it on thick but it really is that good. The plate also includes rice, potato, Greek salad with bread and tzatziki on the side. I know $14.95 may seem a bit steep, but it's not only the huge portions that make this is a good value but also the fact that it's damn tasty and, for the 100th time, lamb done right.

Besides the lamb, we have tried the souvlaki and the BBQ chicken. The souvlaki is pretty decent, but the BBQ chicken is almost as terrible as the lamb is sensational. Yes, that's pretty bad. We understand that this is Greek not Southern BBQ chicken, so while we did not expect the meat to fall off the bone, we also did not expect it to cling on to the bone for dear life. Tough, dry and just plain awful.

Another thing that draws us to this place is the service. So far we have been served by four different servers and they have all been a pleasure: polite, smiling and efficient. Also the food comes out fast. The minimum tip we leave there is 15% - 20% (more on holidays). The restaurant itself is nice, clean and cozy - everything is blue and white with pictures of Greece on the walls and Greek music playing on the speaker. I am not a big fan of songs playing in restaurants, no matter in what language - but it's not so loud or annoying that it spoils the meal.

So the bottom line - Amazing Roast Lamb & Awesome Service (at least for us).

Almost inedible
By oneandonly of Vancouver (east) (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, March 11, 2012 - 3:29pm [Dine in]

This is my first review. I felt compelled to submit one because of the almost inedible food I was served at Wok Box. The food was served in a large bowl. Looked like a lot but it wasn't really. For $11, it was about what you would expect to pay at a fast food joint. The food looked good, with fresh vegetables and an appetizing looking sauce. However, it was extremely salty. It was the saltiest food I had ever been served.

If you like salty food, then you may find Wok Box ok. But I don't and won't be going back.

Good place for a quick lunch

The place is always busy, but have never had to wait very long for a table. The food is good value for what you pay, and is decent as well. At lunch time it is very common to hear "lucky choice" a selection of 3 items plus miso soup for around $8. Kitchen is efficient as well, be it with sushi or cooked items, they always come in a reasonable time to be in and out in a short work week lunch time.

My husband and I have been coming here for about 4-5 years. The staff are always extremely friendly and say a big "HI" and "BYE". We have tried other places and always compare them to Sushi Tang. We've ordered their vegi rolls, beef teriyaki, chicken teriyaki, miso soup, yakitori and the California roll. We are not big "fish" eaters as you can tell...They usually send over a plate of orange slices after your meal. The price is extremely reasonable as some other places in new west charge up to a $1-3 per item more than here with less portions. Great place and we highly recommend "Sushi Tang"! BYE! lol

Never returning
By newwestcouple of New Westminster BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, February 22, 2012 - 7:50pm [Dine in]

My husband and I went here when we went to visit the hospital. The place looked decent and clean but was freezing inside. The waiter was nice and courteous. We ordered miso, gyoza's and 3 different kinds of rolls. The rolls came with 4 pieces only and fell apart easily. The miso soup was the worst kind I have ever tasted (soya sauce couldn't even save it). The food was over priced and lacked any taste. The chicken tasted like it was heated in a microwave and the ginger was dry. My husband ordered the beef teriyaki roll (he never complains about the taste as he's not picky) but he thought it lacked any taste and did not want to return either. We will not be returning. DO NOT ORDER THE GYOZA'S! Puke! Save your money and have a better experience at our favorite place "Sushi Tang" on 6th and 6th. We've been going there for years and they never disappoint with food, price and ambiance...

They had a fairly decent selection of veggies and sauces, but the meats were kind of limited. And the way they cooked everything in the same sauce meant everything tasted more or less the same, which wasn't bad on the day I visited. Service was friendly and efficient and the value was pretty good. I will likely come back another time.

My Wife & I first came to this restaurant about a month ago. The minute we walked in we fell in love with this restaurant. It has a very homey feel. Our first visit could not have left a better impression. The waitress was so friendly & attentive, our food was brought quickly, it was delicious & the prices compared to other restaurants are fantastic. I asked to speak to the Manager/Owner because I wanted to praise their establishment. He came over quickly & was really appreciative of the Feedback that we gave him. Now when we go there we are greeted by name, & that is a really nice feeling. I have read some of the reviews left by other customers. In my opinion this is an excellent place to eat, in fact my wife & I go there every weekend now for breakfast. Like any restaurant the service is not always up to what some customers would expect, but all in all we have no complaints at all.

Nice family restaurant with good food and cosy atmosphere. This is a third restaurant at the same location in a last few years so I’m hoping "Third time's the charm" as we need more Mexican restaurants in New Westminster. I’m definitely coming back for both dine in and take out.

Ate here for the first time yesterday (after months of hearing about it from my husband), wasn't expecting much cuz really, it's a casual place, however I was pretty surprised by the great food and service. I now know what he's been talking about all this time (not that I'll tell him that!). Portions were quite large and the food was fresh.WiIl be back soon.

Went here with 4 friends Saturday night and got a table with a view over the river. There was a belly dancer who did a performance, stopping and dancing at every table, adding to the fun of the night. We ordered the Greekj Appy platter for 4, which was delicious and substantial (highly recomend this for groups for a decent price and good variety). I had a spinach stuffed sole for an entree. Unlinke most places that give you a single fillet, I got three fillets covered with a tasty sauce. Of course, there was the typical rice, Greek Salad, etc. that came with it. To finish off, we all had a piece of Ek Mek. What a great dessert. It was hard to finish, because of the sheer volume of food we received, but it was so good. The service was also excellent. Though it's a ways for me to go, I have enough friends that live out in New West, I will definitely go back again and again.

Avoid Disappointment

The staff was unfriendly from the get go. The wonton soup broth was like you dumped in a whole bottle of soy sauce -- it was dark brown and extremely salty - couldn't eat it -- had to send it back. I had also ordered the salmon cake appetizer which is very over priced -- it too was too salty. So when asked if i wanted to order something to replace the soup I declined. Thought this place was health conscious. They don't know that excessive sodium is unhealthy!!! VERY overpriced and NOT worth it.

So I usually go to this place at least a couple times a month. Probably one of the best deals around for ayce (all you can eat). For $10 you get as much fish and chips as you want. I would also like to note that you do not HAVE to get mroe chips with your fish. You can always just order more fish. STRAIGHT GOODS! Food quality is decent, the fish isn't too greasy but definetly not the healthiest thing to eat. Definitly would recommend this!!!
