Great food

This spot always has some interesting Asian food. It's funky, fun and well presented middle of the road style dining. Great for a relaxed dinner or lunch.

3 Ba Lobster is so spicy and delicious! This restaurant can always maintain its standard. Price is reasonable - 3 lbs lobster cost $86. Other dishes such as calm soup and Hoi Nam chicken are also very nice! Service is customer friendly, very flexible chef!

Ive read some of the other comments about the service, My experience was completely different, and I have been to this restaurant before on our last trip to Vancouver. The waiters were always there and ready to help you order. We ordered the K-L Crab which was messy but good, and our plates were traded for clean ones once the... More

This place was by far have the worst attitude and service from staff amongst all the Asian places I went to in Vancouver. They would come up to you and ask for more tip directly and show you the bill if you don't tip them at least 10% or more. The waiter here is greedy and rude. The owners should... More

We were excited to try this restaurant and chose the combination dinners so we could try a little of each. For 17.95 my husband received 3 prawns, some small pieces of soul and some cabbage. Mine was some chewy beef curry which was tasty and 3 prawns and some chicken. A better value but not worth 17.95. My cocktail was... More

Lots of different ethnic choices can be confusing but they've got fast service and good food. I recommend the Sahar Kary!

Great satays ... but that's about it. My daughter and I ordered off the lunch menu. She had pineapple fried rice and I had the beef curry with ginger rice. Her pineapple rice was bland, so was my ginger rice. My beef curry came in a tiny bowl with about 5 small lumps of fatty, chewy beef brisket. The sauce... More

My opinion is the food is not bad but not great. Part of the reason is focus. Are they Malaysian, Thai, or Indonesian. The service is good. We had a beef curry and pad Thai.

We went there for dinner and overall we are not impressed by the food. We ordered the combination menu as we wanted to sample few meals. I ordered Combination C: Rasa Sayang Seafood Bonanza and husband ordered Combination D: Daulat Tuanku Special. Nothing really stands out from what we ordered. It's not bad, but it didn't make us put this... More
