Lonely Planet review
Reinterpreting a Chinatown heritage building interior with funky flourishes, this hidden gem Chinese brasserie is the area's most seductive dinner destination. It enjoys a local cult following, bringing a contemporary edge to Asian, tapas-sized dishes such as shao bing (stuffed Chinese flatbread), octopus salad and crispy pork belly. There's also a tasty commitment to inventive cocktails, so don't despair if you have to wait at the bar for your table.
Top-notch organic meat and sustainable seafood are used throughout, and the vegetarian options are never an afterthought. Reservations are not accepted so try to avoid peak 7pm to 9pm dining times. If you're looking to impress Vancouverites with your local knowledge, tell them you've been here.
