I had dinner there with a couple of friends and we had a great time ! We had to wait a little bit and then we were welcomed with large smiles :-) The main dishes took some time to be served but it is worth it. Only the brownie for desert was quite dry. One of the vegetarian place to... More

I got here after the lunch rush and was seated when the table became available. I ordered fairy quickly but it took over 45 minutes for one meal. None of the servers checked back. Good food....go with plenty of time to spare.

We popped in for lunch and were happy to see that it wasn't too busy (previous reviews had said you could wait a while for a seat), but it is a Thursday and early for lunch (12 on the dot!). We had the choice of sitting inside or outside, we chose outside on the raised balcony. The seating outside is... More

After fighting traffic for nearly hour and a half to get to downtown Vancouver, we enjoyed some free parking! We were seated quickly and browsed their extensive menu. We all started off with soy Chai lattes and they were very tasty. The Wholly Enchiladas came with a generous serving of salad but the dish itself was quite salty. The desserts... More

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely meal at the Naam. We visited on a Tuesday evening and waited about 5 minutes for a table. The menu was extensive (all vegetarian), and portions were huge! I would have preferred a smaller portion so that I could have sampled the dessert menu, but overall a lovely dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

This restaurant is open 24 hours and serves vegetarian dishes only even if those look like meatballs! Can get busy on holidays - we had to wait 45 minutes before a table became available. Very informal and friendly service.

This is a must every Vancouver visit. The carrot cake is yummy too. Try to get there early to avoid lineups. The best seating is on the terrace. One of my favourites. ❤️

The Naam resaurant has a big vegetarian menu that draws from a variety of cuisines. It's a casual and friendly atmosphere. The service was quick. They had a man playing instrumental guitar on the side and beer on tap!

Naam Restaurant offers vegetarians a nice array of meal options. Service is great, and we easily found somewhere to park along the street. The problem is, the food was a bit bland, and service can be somewhat slow. Our server was really nice and helpful, but he seemed to be a bit overwhelmed by the circumstances. The food is fresh...

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighborhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
