Vancouver (BC) - Far East Cuisin

There has been significant discussion recently about the best asian cuisine in Seattle. A common suggestion has been (time permitting) to skip Seattle and drive to Vancouver,BC, for a real sampling of interesting cuisine from the far east. Particular suggestions for unique/excellent Taiwanese, Korean, Malay and/or Thai restaurants would be appreciated.
