As we walked by this little restaurant and looked at the posted menu in the window, a man walked by us and said 'they have great food'. So we decided to try it. Wow! Totally yummy! Plenty of people inside, but we got a table right away. We've never had Malaysian food, so asked our server for some clarification and... More

Three of us ate their 7-course meal with wine pairing, during the 2014 Dine Out Vancouver event and were blown away! Everything was very tasty (my favourites included: Assam Curry Seafood and Black Cod stew, Braised Lamb Shank, and Rendang Beef Curry) and the cozy atmosphere made for a lovely evening. Highly recommended!

Went in for the lunch special (until 3pm daily) and got the sampler (forget its name) and my girlfriend got the chicken curry. Both were tasty and filling. Staff was super friendly and always available. I would recommend this restaurant.

Happened upon this little place on Denman Street in Vancouver without realizing it had been voted "Best" by Vancouverites. It deserves the vote. Outstanding service. The mussels were some of the best we'd ever had and the rest of the meal was well prepared and very tasty. Everything is served with 'panache' that makes the meal a little more special... More

We chanced our arm the day before the pride festival was to take place and just walked in... damn no seats.... but the waitress bade us to wait a few minutes and squeezed us in on the promise we would be out before it really became packed and her reservation's kicked in. Not a problem there with two younger children... More

I went to this location by accident. I did not know there were other locations. Biggest problem is that there is literally next to no parking by this restaurant. Other wise great experience

Not knowing anything regarding Malaysian cuisine, our young waiter helped us choose something that suited our tastes in spice and heat. There are a few restaurants in the Vancouver area and I'm sure they all have the same standards, but this one one was more easily accessable from Comox St. The starter spring rolls were very fresh and tasty. There... More
