Funky Food with Refreshing Taste!
Submitted Monday, August 4, 2008 - 2:04pm [Dine in]

We went there for the 1st time 2 days ago, tables were all full, our table was probably the last table.
Maybe because it was busy, services were really not the best, they were rather slow but friendly.

We started with the cheese tofu, very smooth and well balanced taste with a drizzle of honey on top. Nice and refreshing.
Then we also has chicken wings, it was okay, nothing too special. Ribs, again, nothing too special but it tasted good.
Miso glazed sablefish with sweet potato puree was really charming and their pork hot pot was really yummy too!
Tiger prawns mayo were well cooked good sized king prawns.

we ended off with the tofu cheese cake, it was good but too similar with the cheese tofu appie.

For 2 people it came to about $65 with no alcohol.... not too bad is it?! Will definitely be back again.

Solid Food
Submitted Monday, August 4, 2008 - 1:51pm [Dine in]

We have been there 2 times and I keep on wanting more!
Food quality is very solid and taste of food is refined and skillfully mastered.
For both occasions we went for the prix fix menu before 6pm, $38 per person for 3 delicious courses is definitely well worth it. Although i do think regular menu is kinda pricey for what u get.

Their prix fix menu changes periodically and they make use of seasonal produce.
Duck pate is always good, I have ordered the organic pork twice because I found it so tasty, especially with the maple glazed turnips, my significant other usually has the fish with clams for entree, and he seemed to be happy with that.
The dessert chocolate bar was just dreamy!

Overall food is really good at that price, service was not too bad for us, but that could because we've always went there early when it was not busy.
Will definitely go back!!

Dragon Palace45 8th Street, New Westminster
Good Value Dim Sum in New West
Submitted Monday, December 3, 2007 - 12:10am [Dine in]

We went to Dragon Palace for late morning Dim Sum.

We were pleasantly surprised by the new-ish decor and smart interior.

The prices were very reasonable ($20 for 2 of us) so were weren't expecting the food to be outstanding.

We were not disappointed. Ok, the Har Gow (shrimp dumplings) could've been nicer but at $2.50 we're not going to complain too much.

The pasta on the cheung fun was a little fragile but again, at these prices who cares? It was tasty anyway!

Service was ok. They didn't supply bowls which made a few of the items we ordered hard to eat so we had to ask for them.

If you're looking for the best quality Dim Sum then Sea Harbour or Sun Sui Wah is the place for you. If you're looking for nice, cheap & tasty Dim Sum then Dragon Palace is worth a try.

2 of us went there on a cold Friday evening.

A very nice busy, but not too noisy, ambience.

The moules starter was very good, but the soup of the day was basically mini cheese ravioli in chicken stock.

The mains consisted of 2 different veal dishes. Both were pretty good and a decent sized serving. There was a good sized serving of vegetables with each.

The tiramisu & creme brulee desserts were well prepared & tasted good.

Service was attentive & polite.

A very nice evening out for a reasonable $80 (without wine or tips)

Dim Sum Disappointment
Submitted Sunday, December 2, 2007 - 11:53pm [Dine in]

Going out on a snowy rainy day, we didn't have much choice when heading out downtown. The restaurant was 3/4 full when we went in.

Good service throughout, waitress was very attentive and polite.
Menu is definitely on the pricey side, so we expected good standards.
We've ordered spare ribs, beef meat balls, and couple of standard dishes. Generally we were both disappointed.

Shrimp dumpling pastry was too thick, flavour was fairly lacking for our special order chow mein, rest of the dishes we had were pretty so-so. Deep fried banana and red bean paste was good even though it is on the oily side.

All in all, for 2 of us the bill came to $50. We thought, for the same value, Sea Harbour in Richmond, Kirin or Sun Sui Wah on Main Street can do way better job.

Great Stuff!
Submitted Friday, November 23, 2007 - 10:41pm [Dine in]

A Saturday night & it was strangely quiet in Al Porto.

Maybe 1/4 full?

Anyway, a mixed hot & cold seafood starter was shared & enjoyed by the 2 of us.

Very tasty dish but the hot items were only barely warm. The seared tuna was almost cooked through. Oh & the scallops were HUGE!

The mains consisted of a veal medallion & a duck dish.

Both were well cooked, well presented & tasted nice.

Tiramisu was only ok but the creme brulee was very nice.

Service was attentive all evening but this could be down to the fact that the restaurant was quiet.

All in all a pleasant dining experience.

Cost for 2 without wine was $110

Loud Loud Loud!!!!!!
Submitted Friday, November 23, 2007 - 9:22pm [Dine in]

Went there on a Thursday night around 8pm.

The atmosphere was so loud I had trouble hearing myself think!

When the place is so noisily packed full of rowdy patrons do we still need the pumping music?

Waitresses were in the main very snooty. They made you feel like they were doing you a favour by serving you.

Nobody brought us bread even though everybody else had bread & we reminded them so.

The beef tenderloin was excellent (although the side of ratatouille was only just ok).

The moules & frites were very good.

The white bean cassolet was way to salty.

Creme Brulee was nice.

If the place was quieter & not staffed by prima-donna's then I would definitely return, but as it is, a firm no!
