This restaurant was so great! The menu seemed like it was never-ending. We got the deep fried eggs because we were curious and they were SO GOOD!!!! There were so many things to choose from, but I ended up getting the prawn hot pot and my partner got the pad thai. The pad thai had a sauce that reminded me... More

Having dinner at Tropika on Cambie was an enjoyable experience. Our meals were exceptionally good. The staff was attentive and courteous. Aromas which reached our table were savoured while waiting for our dinner to be served. The restaurant is attractively decorated. Its walls are painted dusky coral with accents in shades of dark brown and medium bright lighting casts a... More

I walked in here after attending a nearby event, so it was not planned. I came in and asked if they had "beef Rendang" which I love, having had it in Penang, and also at Banana Leaf many times. They had it of course, at a high price of $18, but I tried. It was awful. Cheap meat, tonnes of... More

Went there without reservations on a sunday and the restaurant was packed. Staff was very friendly. The menu is quite large with lots of images so you get an idea of what you ordered. We ordered satay, taufu-dish, lamb curry, prawns and a thai-mango salad and singha beer. The food was very good. Prices are moderate. Recommended if you like... More

The food was tasty and pretty good but the prices are crazy, nearly $18 as an average price for a dish. Other places are cheaper. Nearly $2 for a satay is daylight robbery.

Having worked in the restaurant industry I try to be generous with my comments. The food was decent, but I can go to a hundred restaurants with decent food with significantly better service!! It was a celebratory business dinner and the group of us (4) ordered drinks, an appetizer, and four large entrees (including a 3lb lobster which was priced... More

Amongst a row of options we choose this one because it advertised a variety of Asian food. The place was pretty packed so a good sign and the staff were quick to great us and show us to a table.

Used to be one of our favorite Malaysian restaurant. Lately I found that the food quality and service has gone a bit downhill. Was there with friends and family in June. Even though we have a booking for 8 at 7:00, we did not get a table till 7:30. Plus the receptionist has no concern about our ling wait. The... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
