We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit to the Transylvania Flavour Restaurant. The location at Broadway and Arbutus is convenient, but not exotic, yet upon entry to the restaurant, we were immediately impressed by the atmosphere. Decoration is strong, but not overwhelming. Colours and textures mix well to set the tone for your meal. It is easy to imagine we were... More

I was taken for a surprise birthday dinner to this quiet off-Broadway restaurant that features beautifully prepared Eastern-European dishes. Our party all loved their dishes: including Lamb Ossobucco, lamb chops, Chicken Dracula and Chicken a la Sibiu. All was extremely tender, very flavourful, wonderful sauces and old-world gracious service.

This was Our first visit and we were very much looking forward to it. However we felt we experienced a somewhat kurt welcome - we certainly didn't get the attention that regulars seemed to be getting - perhaps because we were using a Groupon voucher? We ordered the Knight's Platter to try out a variety of foods from the menu.... More

I am a Romanian and I didn't want to lose the opportunity to eat at a Romanian restaurant on the west coast. We were not very hungry when we got into town but we went there anyway. I got the tripe soup, my wife got the meatball soup and both of us ended with cabbage rolls with polenta. All of... More

My husband and I dined at this restaurant after purchasing a Groupon. The food was restricted somewhat by the terms of the Groupon with a choice to be made in appetizer, main and dessert between two menu items. The food was hearty and tasty and service was prompt. There was a "formal" feel to the restaurant which I had not... More

I had been here before and had a good time. This time I bought a groupon and we decided to go eat. From the start I felt like the host was trying to pull a fast one on me. He asked us if we wanted water and I said yes and he proceeded to bring out a $5 bottle of... More

A little pricy in the end but the food is just so tasty and you get at $10 voucher for next time.

We've been there several times and always been happy with the food and service. It is a family restaurant so you get to know the owners if you want to. They are really kind people. Prices are okay for it's a specialty restaurant. And it is definitely: Romanian food at its best!!! Good quality and tasty dishes. They sometimes give... More

Excellent food! It's too bad that Central/Eastern European cuisine is so hard to find in this city. Instead of your typical Asian/West Coast restaurant, go to this little gem and get yourself some real food.
