For those who are looking for the best food Vancouver has to offer, look no further. Maenam, a Thai restaurant located in the heart of Kitsilano, is sure to impress even the ultimate foodie. Chef and owner Angus An has revolutionized traditional Thai cuisine, while staying true to his roots. The menu, although always changing, incorporates simplicity, innovation and exquisite balance in every dish. Fresh flavours, seasonal ingredients and locally-sourced products prove that this restaurant is the real deal.

Delectable cuisine isn’t the only notable trait of Maenam; clean, cool lines paired with warm tones throughout the restaurant, create an exquisite ambiance. With the help of Vancouver designer Scott Cohen and artist Ken Lum, Chef Angus An mirrored similar colours that are prominent in Thailand. Touches of pink, green and orange, custom lighting fixtures atop the terrazzo bar, and handmade Thai artifacts create the ultimate setting for a fabulous meal. If you’re dining out in Vancouver and looking for a great hot spot, this is the place to be!
