“Good Indo-Chinese Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

My wife and I had dinner at this restaurant during a recent trip. Overall, we thought the food was good - though we expected a lot more based on the comments from family/friends that lived in the area. Having had Indo-Chinese food in India itself, as well as in other cities like New York - we have had a variety of experiences.

The dishes that I thought highly of were the Hot Chili Dumplings and Spicy Stir Fried Masala Prawns. I wasn't too impressed by the Green Lettuce Fried Rice, which was very ordinary and seemed to lack the "spices" or twist that one would expect with Indo-Chinese food.

If we were in the area, we would probably consider going back if we were in the mood for Indo-Chinese food.

“Terrific Indian Chinese Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

This was my third time dining at Green Lettuce and it won't' be my last. The titles on the menu read so simply but the food flavours are complex. Try the appetizer of lettuce wraps. It is almost meal size portioning. Mongolian lamb is a must as is the eggplant. The only problem with Green Lettuce is you can't stop eating even after you are full. Service is quick, parking in the back a bit of a challenge and the construction on Kingsway makes it tough to get into but worth going around the block.

We ate here on our first night in Vancouver and it was soo good we returned two nights later! Friendly staff, good service and fairly cheap prices.

“Indo-Chinese - A Dangerous Concept”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Fusion is scary because it is so easy to go terribly wrong. Just throwing a bunch of stuff together doesn't make it appetizing or appealing. Indian cooking is slow - Chinese cooking is fast so the spices tend to be raw in Chinese curries. I can name seven bad fusion restaurants for every good one. This is actually a pretty good one but the food is definitely more Chinese than Indian. It's a restaurant with an interesting menu that I would like to explore further.

“Unique fusion of Chinese and Indian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

Although away from downtown Vancouver, this gem of a restaurant is a favourite with locals. Very much a chinese restaurant with exuberant and helpful servers, but the dishes are wonderfully South Asian. The spicy dishes are very spicy so choose carefully. Excellent quality food at a reasonable price.
