Good restaurants in New Westminster

I just moved to this neighborhood and know nothing about it.

Curious if you can recommend good restaurants. Favorites are Japanese,
Szechuan, Thai, Neapolitan-style pizza, fish & seafood...

I did a search and didn't find anything in direct response to it, so apologies if this has been covered.

Thanks!

  1. and NOODLES! I love noodles! Noodles in soup, noodles with wonton in soup,

    and dumplings. Mmmm. No wonder I am now 20 lbs overweight.

    Oh Hon's.... you have become sooooo greasy unfortunately.

    1. I've heard Tamarind Hill (Malay) to be good from several sources.

      And a friend of mine likes Okonomi Sushi. But YMMV.

      1. I wonder if Andrew from Wild Rice is still planning to open a new restaurant in Westminster Quay? The whole place has been slow getting off the ground but if he was there it'd be interesting.

        1. I grew up there and still go there quite often to visit friends and family. New West is not a great place for food. The only place I think is ok/good is Venus Pizza/Rivers Reach Pub for the pizza only (not Neapolitan). And for delivery pizza Golphi's. Hopefully, the new Quay livens the dining scene up a bit....

            Thanks everybody, I'll let you know if I turn anything up noteworthy. I, too, look forward to the final opening at the Quay.

            Cheers

              Not a restaurant exactly but the maple twist soft serve ice cream at Annie's Dairy Bar is worth a try.

                Well if you're gonna go off the grid ;-) then I'll chime in with recommendations for Burger Burger on 6 St., or Lost In the 50's Drive-In on Edmonds (Bby).

                  Not the Afghani place-don't ask-just DON'T.

                    =D

                    I've heard Burger Heaven is good, and on Columbia Square, The Cockney Kings for fish.

                    ?

                      BH is pretty good, definitely better than your average fast food fare and IMHO better than Milestones, Cactus Club, Earls, etc. I like those independent restos that specialize in a few things anyway.

                      Cockney Kings .... haven't been for ages. I like them, but find the size of the fish pieces a bit on the chintzy side (but batter definitely better than most places). Worth a try.

          2. Aldo's is a great old school Italian restaurant in New West. They have great pizza and pastas.

              Oh how I miss Hon's...Also had a love affair with Bella's spinach pizza with fresh garlic. But that was a few years ago.
