Neptune Chinese Kitchen recently opened at Hard Rock Casino in Coquitlam. There are currently 12 restaurants under the Neptune Restaurant Group. You’ll notice they have expanded quite quickly in the last few years. You’ll find an array of Chinese dishes here from dim sum, noodles, to their seafood specialties.
The interior is newly renovated and much brighter than the restaurant that was here previously. It’s a large space and can fit small to large groups here.
Pork Sui Mai with Fish Roe
This comes with 4 pieces to a steamer. The sui mai is a mix of shrimp and pork. This was ok, but I felt it was missing something.
Shrimp Spring Roll
The shrimp spring roll has 5 pieces cut in half. It is deep-fried until golden brown. Pretty standard.
Shrimp dumplings had a good bounce to them. You should ask them for some hot sauce to go with it. Our dumplings seemed like it was steamed a bit too long, so the skin separated from the dumpling.
Creamy Egg Yolk Custard Bun
So delicious! If you’re here for dim sum, you should order this. Sweet and creamy.
Lunch and Dinner
Minced Fish and Pumpkin Congee
Congee definitely hits the spot and it’s my sort of comfort food. They have 13 kinds of congee. I’ve never had minced fish and pumpkin in congee, but it was good.
Chilled Spicy Shrimp
The shrimp were delicious and was a good start to the meal as an appetizer. A good amount of spice that isn’t too spicy at all.
Wonton Noodle in Soup
A simple items to get for lunch if it’s just for 1. You get 5 wontons and some broccoli with the noodles. and broth.
Curry Seafood Chow Mein
The curry sauce and the seafood was good but the noodles oddly looked red under all of that. The sauce is a tad sweet.
Steam Lobster with Sticky Rice in a Bamboo Steamer
Always a good dish and it’s weird to see the lobster stares at you. The sticky rice sits on the bottom on the steamer wrapped in leaves. Then the delicious lobster is on top.
Yang Chow Fried Rice
A good classic fried rice dish that has a bit of everything. Can’t go wrong with this.
Crab with Salty Egg
I really enjoyed this dish. The salty egg on the outside of the shell was so addictive that I wanted to lick it all off. The crab was cooked well and the meat was naturally sweet.
Sticky Rice on Crispy Chicken
This was a well liked dished among the table. The skin was beautifully rendered so it was crispy and not fatty at all. A lot of prep went into this to really debone a chicken to create this. I would definitely order this again.
Neptune Signature Ribs
A good portion of the ribs that are saucy and sweet.
Overall, some items were average but it’s still a good addition to the neighbourhood as there needs to be more Chinese restaurants. Whether you come here for dim sum, lunch or dinner, you don’t have to travel too far.
