Maenam is a nice little restaurant on west 4th. Booked a table on OpenTable for 7:30 and was given our table right on time so that was an excellent start. Service was friendly and quick and the food was excellent. Particular standouts were the tuna ceviche (must have), the pad Thai (staple) and the red curry with seafood. Will definitely... More

If you are looking for a place with really tasty food and full of flavour - look no further. We stopped by for lunch and we were not disappointed. My husband and I enjoyed the grilled thai sausage and crispy salad; the sea food curry and the massaman curry of braised lamb. I highly recommend the place and we will... More

Had the dine out menu and we really enjoyed it. The restaurant is small so seating can be bit cramped. The service was good but a few of the waitresses were not familiar with the menu but they were very friendly. Since it was a dine out menu, the portions were very small but bursting with flavors! We are defs... More

This is a little gem in Kitsalano outside of Vancouver BC From the staff to the chef to the food to the atmosphere this was great! The food was fresh with distinct flavors. I highly recommend doing the Chef's Menu..... there was more food than we could finish and very reasonably priced

I've been hearing about this place since it opened and finally had the time to visit - and glad I did!! The food was excellent - two of us shared the Brussel sprout salad (amazing - spicy and crispy), beef Penang curry (excellent) and the sweet / spicy ling cod (good - dish could have used some veg or something...

Outstanding food! The Brussels sprouts salad was great and the baby corn salad with lemongrass was outstanding . Many vegetarian options as substitutes.

We have eaten at Maenam a number of times but our last two experiences there were not positive and we haven't been back. We really enjoy the food - it is original and very flavourful. The tasting menu is a real treat. Unfortunately, our recent experience has been that the kitchen and/or our servers are more concerned with dealing with... More

Excellent cooking with no compromises. Service and atmosphere is good and prices are reasonable for such high quality food. Limited menu but surely this place is worth repeat visits! Highly recommended....

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
