Reservations at Maenam haven't been easy to get, and we were definately looking forward to our first experience at this popular restaurant. The positive: the food was excellent, especially the hot and sour halibut cheek soup and the green papaya salad. The pad thai was cooked quite differently that we have had before, and we all found it too sweet... More

Just had a culinary experience that delighted my tastebuds!! Definitely deserves to be one of Canada's Top 100 Restaurants!! Went there for a business lunch and we were blown away by the food and the service, not to mention the very affordable pricing! Elegant decor, spacious, delicious and very authentic Thai food. Don't walk, run to Maenam for a truly... More

But the rest was just OK. Skip the cod. The curries were pretty good, but nothing you can't find at another good Thai place. The coconut spicy soup was good. But the dish that definitely made the night was the pad Thai. Complex and tangy. I would go back just for the pad Thai.

Had an early supper here. The service was great, the food was even better. The restaurant is quite small so it filled up very quickly so do recommend a reservation. There were three of us and we shared 4 starters among us. That way we all got to try something very different. The lamb curry was to die for. I... More

Maenam is a nice little restaurant on west 4th. Booked a table on OpenTable for 7:30 and was given our table right on time so that was an excellent start. Service was friendly and quick and the food was excellent. Particular standouts were the tuna ceviche (must have), the pad Thai (staple) and the red curry with seafood. Will definitely... More

If you are looking for a place with really tasty food and full of flavour - look no further. We stopped by for lunch and we were not disappointed. My husband and I enjoyed the grilled thai sausage and crispy salad; the sea food curry and the massaman curry of braised lamb. I highly recommend the place and we will... More

Had the dine out menu and we really enjoyed it. The restaurant is small so seating can be bit cramped. The service was good but a few of the waitresses were not familiar with the menu but they were very friendly. Since it was a dine out menu, the portions were very small but bursting with flavors! We are defs... More

I just got back from vacay and totally forgot it’s still Dine Out Vancouver!!! I was kind of sad for a minute wanted to try Maenam dine out! I retired from dine outs mainly because I think the quality goes downhill, service is underlooked and quite frankly I just don’t find them to be that good anyway. I much just... More

This is a little gem in Kitsalano outside of Vancouver BC From the staff to the chef to the food to the atmosphere this was great! The food was fresh with distinct flavors. I highly recommend doing the Chef's Menu..... there was more food than we could finish and very reasonably priced

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood 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.
