The lunch platter with kung pow chicken, pineapple and papaya salad, calamari and rice for $15 was hearty and delectable. The Malaysian panna cotta that came with it was light and refreshing. We weren't as happy on the gluten-free front. The same beef curry for...More

We had the degustation menu and everything we ordered was tasteful and fresh. We really enjoyed all of it and would return without hesitation.

It was my first time to try Malaysian cuisine and frankly speaking, the food is just fantastic in this restaurant - I will definitely do it again.

We feel like we wasted a dinner by going to this highly rated restaurant. The meal was ok but not special in any way, and it was not as good as a Malaysian restaurant near us in north NJ where we live.

My cousins took me here as we were exploring Vancouver and I was pleasantly surprised. We each ordered something different and all four of the entrees were fantastic. I would definitely return.

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with
Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a
paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and
perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most

take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
