Late night dinner at their Westend location. The restaurant had a special sampler dinner that really had unique flavours and showed the versatility of the menu. Very good service, warm and eclectic atmosphere. Although we only stayed in Vancouver 5 days, we almost went back twice in that timeframe just to eat there again.

Went with my friend for my bday. There was a 10 minute wait to get a table but we weren't bothered about waiting. It was well worth it though. We ordered the 9 course taster! Everything was delicious. I highly recommend the 9 course tasting menu if you are stuck for choice. We had the lychee cocktail. Again very good... More

Excellent flavourful meals. Larger groups are best for evenings as everything is a la carte and can get pricey... lunch specials include all you need for a great price. Fried bananas a must for dessert, perfect for two.

It's a bit pricey especially on an expense budget but the shared meal for supper is fantastic and so many different flavours for the palate.

I have been to all three restaurants in Vancouver and food is excellent. Very fresh, tasty with so many choices, each one delicious. Great service always. Not really small child friendly ..

The share menu is the only way to go. You start with a refreshing salad and appys of roti and sate and then move onto the mains . They include fish in a sweet, sticky sauce and beef so tender it falls apart under your fork. We added some soft shelled crabs that were the special of the day. Save... More

Awesome food. We got the special where you share around 7-9 dishes from starter to desserts. It was very reasonably priced and we had very generous portions. Great atmosphere, great service, what's not to love!?

This place was awesome. We had rutti, papaya salad, lamb, kung pow chicken, and rendang beef. All were delicious. Definitely recommend.

This place is my favorite Vancouver restaurant. I've been going here for the past 10 years every time I visit. It truly is exceptional. I've never been to Malaysia, but once I went with a colleague who had, and he said it was the best Malaysian food he's had outside of that country. Regardless, the place is a cozy spot,... More
