Good Tapas in New Westminster
Submitted Thursday, July 16, 2009 - 12:08pm [Dine in]

Enjoyed our dinner in this Tapas restaurant. Excellent food with reasonable price. We had couple spanish dishes and also tried the mussels. Great tasting dishes with average presentation.

The restaurant has good ambiance for couples. On Wednesday night, It has live spanish music and dancer.

Lot of selections on the drink menu.

Free meter parking (after 6 pm) in front of the restaurant.

Shang Noodle House350 Gifford Street, New Westminster
Excellent Noodle
Submitted Tuesday, July 1, 2008 - 4:13pm [Dine in]

This place specializes in noodles. I had the hot and sour noodle bowl and it was pretty good. My wife had the seafood noodle and it was delicious.

They also serve dim sum and appetizers. Noodles for two costs under $20 -- pretty good value for what they serve you.

The only draw back is the drive to New Westminster and crossing the Queensborough bridge.

Tsim Chai Noodles8251 Westminster Hwy., #50, Richmond
Food quality has gone down
Submitted Friday, November 30, 2007 - 12:52pm [Dine in]

This used to be my benchmark place for excellent wonton and dumpling for many years. I recommended this place to several people to try out excellent food and service.

My experience with this place in the last couple years have been just OK. I find there are a number of places in Richmond and Vancouver that can serve wonton with quality either same or better than Tsim Chai Noodles.

I tried out their congee yesterday and it was terrible. Not sure whether the chef is having a bad day or my expectations have changed.

One thing that have not changed is the service, Solid service from the servers,

Elephant & Castle3500 Cessna Drive, Richmond
Good place for drinks and food
Submitted Sunday, June 24, 2007 - 9:27pm [Dine in]

I have been to Elephant & Castle several times in the past few years. This is good place to enjoy dinner and drinks.

I enjoy this place especially during the summer -- try to get a table outside.

The food is always good and hot. Service is consistently solid unless the place is packed.

Cockney Kings Fish & Chips66 10th St, #130, New Westminster
Excellent value
Submitted Wednesday, May 23, 2007 - 6:42pm [Dine in]

Cockney has an all you can eat fish and chips on Mondays to Wednesday for $8.95 each. This price includes soft drink.

The fish and chips are always cooked to order. Your food is always hot and tasty.

They also have other menu items. The seafood platter is OK. I find the oysters kind of soggy.

If you stick with the fish and chips, you cannot go wrong.

North Garden Restaurant3355 North Road, #286, Burnaby
Good value consistent food quality
Submitted Sunday, April 8, 2007 - 3:46pm [Dine in]

I have been to this restaurant three times in the past four months for lunch.

They have a good luncheon menu with item pricing between $6 to $8 per dish including hot hong kong style coffee or tea.

The luncheon food quality and portion are above average. Services are pretty sold except when the restaurant is full.

The restaruant location has abundant parking. I will definitely recommend people to give this place a try.

Mui Garden Restaurant4327 North Road, Burnaby
Good food but service could improve
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 3:08pm [Dine in]

Food quality is usually good at this restaurant for both lunch and dinner.

Excellent value if you go for the set dinner menu. A dinner for 6 is only $48.

The service staff could pay more attention to customers. It seems their job is to take order, deliver the dishes from the kitchen and that's it.

Don't expect 5 stars services from these staff as many of servers have been working at this restaurant for many years.

No problem recommending this restuarnt to anyone who hasn't been there before.

Ningtu2130 Kingsway St., Vancouver
Consistent and good value for money
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 3:02pm [Dine in]

Excellent restaurant specializes in Shanghai style food. A family run business with excellent value and overall consistency in food quality and fast service.

I have been a customer of this restaurant for many years and have no complaints or any unsatisfactory experience.

Good value for lunch and dinner. I usually go for the dinner for 6 or 8 option and it works out about $15 per person for dinner.

The hot and sour soup and crispy rice are my favourites.

Highly recommend anyone who wants to try something different than Cantonese style chinese food.

Sui Sha Ya Japanese Restaurant4820 Kingsway, #236, Burnaby
This restaurant is going downhill
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 10:56am [Dine in]

I have been to Sui Sha Ya in Metrotown for many years.

If you are looking of decent all you can eat Japanese food, go elsewhere. If you are in rush and don't really mind food that are medicore and average price so that you can take a break from shopping, I guess it is an OK place.

Hon's Wun Tun House408 6th Street, New Westminster
No suprises with Hon's
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 10:48am [Dine in]

I have been a customer of Hon's in New Westminster for over 10 years.

This place is always busy at prime dinner hours and sometimes at lunch on the weekend.

When I go to Hon's, I know exactly what I am getting and the food quality is pretty consistent. You can have a decent dinner for about $10 per person with food left over to take home.

They have limited pre set menu for 2, 4, 6 or 8 people. If you don't know what to order, I suggest you go for one these items and you won't be disappointed.

Pink Pearl1132 East Hastings Street, Vancouver
Pink Pearl is getting worse
Submitted Sunday, March 18, 2007 - 10:23am [Dine in]

The customer demographic shows many of the customers are non oriental. This usually means the Pink Pearl food quality is not attracting the oriental customer base.

Dim Sum is usually packed on the weekend. I find the food quality OK in comparison with other newer Chinese seafood restaurant. Some of the "hot" food on carts are warm at best by the time it arrived your table. The pricing of dim sum dish is not clearly marked anywhere. IN fact, when you asked the server about the price, the common response is they do not know.

Dinner really shows how bad Pink Pearl fares with other Chinese seafood restaurant. The place is at most one quarter full (with the exception of banquet) and oriental customers are few and far in between.

My last dinner there was a month ago and it was a real bad experience. We ordered a pre set dinner for 10. Majority of the dishes were tasteless. The shark fin soup tasted like hot water mixed with soya sauce. Really bad!

I complained to the manager and asked him to taste it himself. He tasted it and agreed with our comments and did nothing to fix it.

My recommendation is STAY AWAY from Pink Pearl. You will feel like a fool wasting your hard earned money.

Pink Pearl used to be a great place to go. Given the many new restaurants in Vancouver and Richmond, Pink Pearl is like a run down place continuing looking for the bottom.
