One of the most interesting and scintillating food experiences I have had ... this makes me want to get to Singapore and Malaysia and SE Asia in general even more (I have never been). The service was professional, fast and very friendly ... they even recommended the Japanese restaurant we ended up heading to later for dinner. We had the... More

Ricky Bob had never had Malaysian food. I can't tell you the correct name of the dishes except that they were amazing, the service beyond friendly , and I would go back tomorrow. Our waiter made great suggestions and we left very, very happy. So glad we gave it a try!

I ate here at noon with a group of friends. We all had the lunch specials that are very cheap (around 12$-15$). The food was delicious and we were all happy. I was not able to try the desserts since we were in a rush but they sound delicious as well.

My daughter and I tried this place near our hotel in downtown Vancouver. We ordered the appetizer for two. This came with a refreshing salad, chicken satay, calamari, roni, and the most amazing spring rolls ever. Then we each ordered an entree to share. We got pineapple fried rice and rendeng beef. These were both very good. The rendeng was... More

Our instructors took us here, otherwise I may not have tried it. The decor is not over the top, but the service & food make up for it. Very tastey dishes. Not too spicey, just nice. I's go again.

I had 2 dishes. 1 with lobster and another with crab. A bit expensive but worth it in my opinion. $150 for 2 of us including cocktails and tip. The food was absolutely delicious. This was my 3rd time there and not my last!!!

The curry chicken was nothing special. Nor was the lettuce wraps or the coconut rice but the eggplant, green beans and okra dish was good and the seafood noodles was great.

Food was good, but not as spicy as I would like. It was expensive, but everything in Vancouver is expensive.

Inventive cuisine, wide variety of food, well prepared, and I have to say I love the outfits that the wait staff wear. Great place for parties where one part loves it spicy, the other hates it - lots of variety, and you can always ask for more or less spicy. Gets pretty busy for lunch, so come early. Some of... More
