Fist time trying to find something in this area that wasn't totally fast-food for lunch. Walked in, very clean, small seating area, lovely bhangra-trance music playing (not too loud which was great and added a little ambiance), counter attendant was very friendly, smiling and recommended the Be Green Curry, take out order was delivered by another staff person who came out from the back and handed me the bag, (nice service touch). The food was okay, could have used a few more vegetables in it, the Curry is this seemed to be a combo of one part Chicken Saag (spinach puree) and one part Butter Chicken (cream tomato sauce), which was placed side by side, I would recommended to keep the Saag by itself, touch it up with a few more side veggies, throw in a small slice of Naan into the container as well. Taste wise, it was okay, not the greatest, but certainly not the worst either. Would love to see this place develop a little more in the food area, however I can say I was impressed with the cleanliness and the staff. I think too that the price is a little steep but if they added more to it, it would be fine for a quick lunch.

Went to this place with group to have a drink and appies. Noticed immediately that there seemed to be a general lack of servers on the 'Pub" side of this place. Our server was okay, noted that only 1 type of beer was on special (considering the name we thought there would be more of a selection to chose from). The thing that was mostly noticeable: The volume of music being played, we couldn't really tell that we were in a Pub, between 6pm onwards, the volume got so loud that you have to scream at the person across from you in order to have any conversation, and therefore we all agreed that this place was not a place in Yaletown that we would frequent again, if we wanted to be in a "nightclub" environment without the dance floor, we would have tried somewhere else. Appies are overpriced and average. Just overall poor ambiance.
