Banana Leaf has become a staple of our visits to Vancouver. It provides you with a tasty Malaysian dining experience for a great price. I'm a fan of the different (7, 8, 9 course) tasting menus when it's just my husband and I or a...More

Denman Street is a very vibrant place in the evening. Located next to the beach at English Bay in Vancouver. And beaches remind us of coconut trees and seafood. Although we walked in to eat just before they were closing, our family was pleasantly surprised...More

Had a meal at West Broadway branch 4 weeks before, at the beginning of our visit to BC. It was excellent, so when we discovered we were staying close by to another we couldn't resist! We were not disappointed! Had the 7 course taster menu,...More

I had heard very positive reviews of this place, but I was astonished at how good it was - my friend and I went there twice in two days, and both times the delicious variety surprised us. I would definitely recommend the lunch platter which...More

Dropped on a whim. Seated outside in the sun. Food arrived quickly (suggesting it was pre-cooked) and were tasty. Staff were attentive and pleasant.

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.

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
