Our friends wanted to meet here for lunch so it was a good opportunity to try a different Malaysian restaurant than our usual haunts.
The first thing I noticed when we sat down were the plates: they were heavy, white porcelain diner plates that were so badly marked that they were mostly grey. Not very appetizing or classy. When we asked if they could make a vegetarian nasi goreng (Malaysian fried rice) the waiter said they couldn't--it wouldn't turn out right. I have never heard this anywhere before--even in Malaysia. Instead he suggested we have Teochew Fried Rice which turned out to be salty rice with egg in it. (I believe Teochew cuisine is neither Malaysian nor Thai, but Chinese.) At $12.95 this dish was over-priced. The other dish we ordered (a combo) was okay but the portion was quite small. Our friends ordered soup, egg rolls, gado gado and a sambal green bean dish; they enjoyed theirs very much.
It wasn't busy (noon on a Saturday) and the waiter was friendly and gave us plenty of time to decide on our dishes and left us to talk long after we had finished our meal. I assume the complaints about rushed and rude service were at dinner time because we didn't experience anything like that.
Our experience wasn't bad, but I would opt for a different restaurant before coming back. There are much better options for Malaysian food in Vancouver.
