Great flavors, fast service. Ahead of Friday evening rush meant fast, hot food and quick service. Mango salad, indonesian pork ribs, curry duck, Chef's special of seafood stirfry with green beans, okra and eggplant, and nasi goreng fried rice. Lots for 5 people, different flavors and fresh fruit and vegetables. Ribs were not quite fall off bone, with hint of... More

Those of you familiar with this type of cuisine don't need any advice from me. But, if you are new to this type of restaurant, I hope you have the good fortune to have along someone who has eaten there before. While it is true that rice is rice, fish is fish, etc., the sauces and portion size have a... More

The service is always good here. I don't really think of this place as Malay or Thai but rather Chinese food with Malay/Thai flavour. It is good for a quick stop for a meal but in no way is it authentic Malay/Thai tasting. It's kind of like getting butter chicken at White Spot. Ain't nothing wrong with that but it... More

Went there with a family group of 4. Really nice place. Very clean and excellent service. All dishes were very good. The pineapple rice in the pineapple was my favorite as were the prawn cakes. Dishes came out hot and very fast. Servers right on top of things. Would definitely go back.

Terrific service and the food was wonderful!! We were seated in a very comfortable booth and enjoyed a long and relaxed lunch. Although the restaurant became quite busy, we were not rushed at all. For an appetizer the Roti with a Curry Sauce and Potatoes was especially good. I would highly recommend the Sambal Prawns and the Coconut Seafood Rice.... More

A slightly upscale Malaysian restaurant in Richmond, but you get quite a large selection of Malay/Thai food. The new location is much more accessible than the old one at Aberdeen. Since we had six people we were able to sample quite the broad selection of dishes including chili crab, Malay beef rendang, roti, spicy beans, pineapple rice, pad thai and... More

We went there around 5:15 pm on Friday and the place was almost empty. The manager Anthony put us at a table we found unsuitable so we asked for another table as most were empty. He said he couldn't because it's too early and he only takes reservations for those tables at 6pm. It seemed stupid but he was adament... More

I frequented the robson and cambie locations and went to the Edmonton location often when I was there so decided to give the lansdown location a try. Right when I entered the restaurant, the service was cold. When ordering, I asked the waiter the differences between two different laksas and his answer was uninformative and condescending. He said "well, everyone's... More
