Really friendly, and efficient service with very tasty Malaysian food is a winner. It is a little pricey compared to other Asian restaurants (special of the day runs around $20), but portions are huge and everything is full of flavour.

My wife and shared an appetizer and a large bowl of soup since we were, basically, restaurant hopping up and down Robson Street. If... More

I had never had Malaysian cuisine before and wasn't sure what to expect but it was absolutely delicious! The prices were also very reasonable and my husband and I went back twice during our stay in Vancouver!

All of us had a curry dish for mains plus pineapple rice and coconut rice. Cocktails were lovely. Otto was our waiter & he was very friendly. Food was inexpensive but... More

For appetizers we got beef lettuce wraps that were so tasty and a large portion. The Roti Canai was amazing- a MUST order! For dinners we got Kung Pow Chicken (best I've ever had), short ribs special, lamb... More

The service was good and the waiter was patient with us since... More
