“Want something delicious and interesting?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

This little restaurant combines the best of Chinese and Indian cuisine. Their fusion of these two cultures has resulted in delicious dishes, served piping hot in a usually very full room. There are spicy, curried, lamb, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes for every taste and palate.
Big bonus...it is VERY reasonable!

“Wow! Spicy and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I've lived in Vancouver my whole life and Green Lettuce is the favourite restaurant for my family, and for many of my neighbours and friends too. Whenever there's a special occasion, it's always Green Lettuce!
The owners are wonderful people, very accommodating. Try their Dai Ching Prawns, the Masala Fried Rice, and the Curried Beef. We always order everything Extra Hot, and it really wakes you up!
Oh, and there's nothing better than leftover Green Lettuce the next day, so order lots and take some home!

“Great food Great prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

My partner and I really enjoy this restaurant. The food is extremely well prepared and the fusion of Indian and Chinese is perfection. We are vegetarian, so always get the vegetarian Hakka noodles and the tofu and eggplant in black bean sauce. The portions are extremely generous. We can share 2 dishes (very ample) for under $20. The room is more attractive than most Chinese restaurants and the service is friendly and fast. It is always busy though. On the weekend expect to wait at least 15-20 minutes.

“Authentic Indo-Chinese Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

This restaurant serves the kind of "chinese" food that is agreeable to the Indian palette. This is NOT authentic Chinese food, but rather Chinese food with an Indian twist. When you go to a chinese restaurant in India, the food you get is similar. In that regard, I have to say that I think that the Green Lettuce hits the nail on the head. Now I will say that this kind of food is not going to have the broad appeal, but the food certainly tastes like chinese restaurants in India! If you are a desi and have a hankering for chinese food reminiscent of home, this will not disappoint. Bombay garlic fish and the gobi manchurian are particularly yummy. Portions are great too!

“A new favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This place was recommended to me and I'm glad I went. Street parking, nice simple, clean decor. Good service. Prompt and friendly. The food great.

Started with an appy which came first which was nice. Too often in a Chinese restaurant it comes at the same time as all the other food.

Started with a chicken dumpling which was delicious. I could hardly wait for everythign else.

Next we had the ginger beef, tangerine chicken and the Singapore chop suey and a small bowl of steamed rice.

All of the food was very tasty and just the right amount of spice. I like it a little on the hot side but not so hot that it burns. This was perfect. You could really taste all of the different flavours.

The portions were plentiful.

We had plenty to take home and have for supper the next night.

All of the above and the bill was $40.00

Will definetly be back. Good value for money.
