The restaurant had only one available table when we arrived. After we were seated, the crowd arrived and the line formed. I have traveled to East Africa on three occasions and rather expected a strong Indian influence in the menu, as that is common in...More

We went to Simba's for dinner on Saturday. It was pretty full, had to wait a few minutes (but it was worth it). The food was excellent (we like it hot and spicy). I loved the samaki bites (deep fried fish) that we had for...More

This is a hidden gem, the food is fantastic, good size portions, good price too, if you like BBQ this place is fantastic really flavourful. And don't forget the ice cream chef makes it himself so delicious. You gotta eat here.

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
languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset
Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to
take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along
