My fiancee and I went here to try out their Dine Out Vancouver Menu and we were not disappointed! For $28 a person we were able to try 9 courses. The food was as follows:
Papaya Salad - fresh, vibrant. It came with fried garlic pieces, crushed peanuts, pineapple, tomato, papaya, lettuce - it was sweet, spicy and tart. A perfect warm-up for your tastebuds.
Roti Canai (layered bread w/ curry dip) - light, and fluffy. It tasted almost like an Indian croissant (naan x croissant), it was flaky and slightly buttery. Delicious!
Chicken Satay x 2 - meat was tender, moist, and had just the right amount of spice. Very flavorful, and the peanut dipping sauce was very good as well (though could have used a tad bit more spice). My only complaint was that we only got one satay each (it was that good).
Spring Rolls (we substituted for spring rolls in place of the Mussels appie) - Your standard Thai style spring rolls, glass noodles with veggies. Very good, but not the best spring rolls we've had. The dipping sauce however was delicious. It was sweet and spicy like one would expect, but also vinegar-y and slightly salty.
Rendang Beef - This dish was the star of the meal. Chunks of beef slowly cooked in coconut milk and spices until the meat is falling apart tender. Again, the only complaint is that we wanted more (it was plenty for 2 people, but again, it was that good).
Sambal Green Beans - Crunchy green beans with chunks of tomato and shrimp paste. My girlfriend really enjoyed this dish. Very strong flavour coming mostly from the shrimp paste. If you're unaccustomed to the taste of shrimp paste, this is probably not the dish for you. I liked it, but the overwhelmingly shrimp-y flavour got to me after a while (I like shrimp paste, but usually in small doses).
Scallops & Prawns in Gulai Sauce - Scallops and prawns with veggies in a thin curry like sauce. Very tasty, big prawns and lots of scallop.
Black Cod in Ginger Sauce - fluffy yet meaty, the skin was crispy and light -fried to perfection, it almost melted in your mouth, the sauce it came in was thick and sweet with a bite of ginger. This dish was very good, though it did still have a few bones in it.
Pisang Goreng (deep fried banana w/ ice cream & peanuts) - delicious! just the right amount of light crispy batter, the cooked banana was very fluffy and light (not dense like banana can sometimes be) - just perfect with the creamy vanilla ice cream it came with.
Service: we had about 4 different people serve us. It wasn't distracting or annoying, just strange. They were all very nice and seemed to be genuinely happy/friendly throughout, except the lady who served us water (would it kill ya to crack a smile?)
Value: for $28/ per (DOV menu) and 9 courses, we were stuffed. Very good portions throughout without skimping on ingredients or quality.
Ambiance: Colourful! Tables were spaced well, there were Malaysian inspired artifacts throughout the multi-colored room, and the music was unobtrusive. Very nice, but not what one would consider fine dining.
Overall a great experience. I am so glad this place is participating in DOV, we were able to try so many things we wouldn't normally get, but we really enjoyed. Be sure to make a reservation though; we went on a Tuesday night at around 5:30pm and the place was already getting pretty full.
