Visited from Uk with friends from BC. Food was fantastic for sharing like the kimchi fries and Korean chicken wings. Some great speciality dishes cooked in authentic flavours. Well worth the visit. The staff were great too, recommendations were spot on.

We had the Thai Chicken wings - - excellent spice and nice portion. The other dish we share was the Beef Pho. Nice broth, fresh ingredients and flavours and tastes. Service was good and attentive and friendly.

Definitely a hipster joint but being older we didn't feel out of place. On the edge of Chinatown this place is small and friendly and serves up specialty cocktails, beer and most importantly Thai food. The Pad Thai was not the best but the other...More

One of the most wonderful aspects of Vancouver is the variety of delicious Asian food one can find here. The Union brings it all together, so to speak. Just on the edge of Chinatown in Strathcona, this hipster joint offers Korean, Philippino, Indian, Vietnamese, and...More

This Asian fusion place is modern, has warm lighting and laid-back modern surrounding. The presentation of the food is very nice, and they also have a great cocktail list.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.

space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
