This cosy little restaurant offers great Malaysian food at very affordable prices. The Laksa, roti canai, satays and sambal prawn dishes are very good. The service is good and on the whole, there is nothing really to complain about. I like the lunch specials as well.

Judy runs the place - and VERY efficiently. Her friendly and "extra mile" service made the experience for all of us. And the food was so flavourful!

We have eaten at TH many times. My wife and I are vegetarians, our son a meat eater. There is something for everyone. We usually start with the Roti which is very good. I love the Sayur Lemak. My wife often has the Laksa. We lived in KL as a family for a year in the 80s. My wife is... More

There's no doubt that this is one of the best Asian eateries in North Van. It's a small, dark restaurant squatting near the corner of Lonsdale and 14th, with friendly staff. The food is excellent - for the main course I would recommend the dosa (soft fried breads with a fearsome curry sauce) and the soft-shell crab, and for main... More

We have been going to Banana Leaf regularly for malay food but recently decided to stay closer to home at Tamarind Hill on Lonsdale. First thing, they need to redesign their entrance so cold air doesnt blow through the whole restaurant whenever the front door opens. Menu is quite standard malay fare and the dishes we choose were all well... More

When we first started coming here 4 years ago it was good. I used to particularly enjoy the Beef Rendang. Great taste, excellent sauce and high quality beef. Yesterday the experience wasn't so good. Terrible oily sauce and stringy, very fatty beef. Didn't sleep well at all as a result. Shame that the consistency isn't there. Perhaps the regular cook... More

This little restaurant is a gem! I went with two friends tonight, and we walked away with full, satisfied bellies and very little damage to the wallet. We started with roti, a dish with prawns and vegetables in a coconut curry cream sauce served with rice, another dish of eggplant, okra and green beans in a black bean sauce, chicken... More

Very busy place, quite cozy. Lots on the menu, and excellent value for lunch! Have eaten here a few times, always yummy, with efficient service. My favorite is the Singapore Laksa, a MASSIVE bowl of spicy coconut broth, rice noodles, chicken, shrimp, fish cake, etc which is a commitment to eat but is so very yummy with subtle flavours; plenty...
