Vancouver BC restaurant recommendations

weezy1074 | Jan 13, 201511:14 AM

I am looking to fellow Chowhounders for advice....This will likely be our last trip to Vancouver for a while...we are looking for some good places, lunch/dinner or brunch (likely one brunch). We don't want fine dining, just: good food, cozy, or hip or hole in the wall, it doesn't matter.

My husband and 2 youngish (ages 7 and 4) yet intrepid travelers/diners will be in Vancouver for 3 nights, arriving this Friday (Jan 16). I know Dine Out is on...we will go to Vij's on Sun evening (yes, worth queueing for!). We are coming from San Francisco (and dine out frequently) and don't need to have tacos or even dim sum. We are staying on Robson (@ Cambie) but will have a car, so can drive if we need to.

What are your thoughts on the following restaurants...would you avoid or recommend one over another? (Last year we went to Guu, but other than Vij's want to try restaurants we haven't been to, or sample cuisine that SF doesn't excel in).

Kaya Malay Bistro
Maenan Thai Restaurant
Miku Waterfront
Shirakawa -
Olive and Anchor - Horseshoe Bay
Vancouver Fish Co
Tuc - brunch (?)

Thanks for any suggestions!


Vij's Rangoli,
Guu with Otokomae,
Guu Original Thurlow,
Kaya Malay Bistro,
Tuc Craft Kitchen,
Miku Vancouver
