Casual Options on Denman/Davie/Robson

Hi: We recently moved to West End (West of Denman). We are looking for casual eating recommendations, brunch/lunch/dinner. All price ranges/all types of food. What are people's thoughts on Central, Khunnai Chang, Swagat, etc.?

    1. You are in a good spot for Japanese and Korean...the best three ramen joints in the city are located neat the cornder of Robson and Denman. Then there are all the izakaya - Hapa, Kingyo, Zakkushi (a kushiyaki).

        We enjoyed Banana Leaf and Simba's a couple of years ago, are they still worthwhile?

          Yep! They have a new-ish $25 tasting menu that is a great value.

        1. I would second the recommendation for Tapastree. Also Gyoza King.

            1. Tapastree is absolutely the best option. Everyplace in that area seems "casual" though.
