Nice cafe set-up in downtown located on street with heavy foot traffic. Tasty Malaysian choice of food, authentic taste, but a little pricey. Servers were nice and polite

Four of us were looking for a restaurant on busy Denman Street on a Saturday night and found the Banana Leaf. We were lucky that they had room for us without reservations and we were thrilled with their 8 course individual meal for about $28.00...More

My wife is from Singapore. She didn't think the food was particularly authentic. However the rest of our group enjoyed it. We were at the W Broadway location. Service was good, Helpings were plentiful and tasty. Would definitely go back.

The atmosphere was uncomfortable due to groups shouting and laughing loudly. The restaurant has pictures of the food on the menu to help you choose and I selected the Blackened Cod, which looked nice. What arrived was a glutinous black lump on a plate which...More

I ordered the seven course tasting lunch. A good deal for $20, the beef curry was especially nice. As always parking along Denman Street is always a challenge.

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
