Amongst a row of options we choose this one because it advertised a variety of Asian food. The place was pretty packed so a good sign and the staff were quick to great us and show us to a table. The menu was varied and the staff happy to explain if you were not sure. The food was very good... More

Used to be one of our favorite Malaysian restaurant. Lately I found that the food quality and service has gone a bit downhill. Was there with friends and family in June. Even though we have a booking for 8 at 7:00, we did not get a table till 7:30. Plus the receptionist has no concern about our ling wait. The... More

Since becoming a vegan 5 years ago, I had not paid a visit to any Tropika for some time. My visiting guests wanted to try the place so I decided to go along after examining their menu. I was able to find a vegetarian fried rice. The guests had the usual satay skewers, the roti bread, and a couple of... More

We go to Tropika on Cambie every time we are in Vancouer, fefintely worth a visit as it is unique due to the fact that they serve Malayisian, Thai and a bit of Indian cusine. Love the roti and the coconut seafood fried rice. Satay of cours is very succulent.

Enjoyed very good Malaysian food, when we finally got service. Restaurant was not all that busy, we were seated promptly, after that...the service was extremely slow. Received glasses of water and then waited almost 20 minutes before our order was even taken. Food was delicious and the menu has a great variety to choose from. Had to ask for the... More

First time visiting Tropika, I highly recommend dining with an experienced Malay food diner. Arrived after the lunch hour, we were quickly seated and given menus. LOVE the menu...lots of pictures of the dishes. The waiter stated that the heat of the dishes could be adjusted to our preference. So...we ordered a spicy prawn and noodle soup and an order... More

We have been frequenting this place for years. Our last visit today was a dissapointment. The roast chicken was was overccoked as it was stringly. It was most probably a wrong order thaqt was sent back tomthe kitchen earlier and they just reheated it in microwave. They also drizzled it with some sweet sauce which they never used to. The...

We had a great, relaxing dinner. The food was great and the service was friendly and fast. I really liked the crab dish. I would definitely go back.

We went late afternoon after a day of shopping. The food was delicious, especially the bread, just like back in Kuala Lumpur!! They had a great sea food selection as well.

Although we live in the area, this was our first visit to the restaurant. As Vancouverites we are accustomed to eating ethnic food on a regular basis and I have always been a big fan of both Thai and Malaysian food. But this has to be the worst Thai and worse Malaysian I've ever had. Service was very nice though.

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighborhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
