As I was used to the old menu that included real beef tartare and black cod hot pot, I was curious what the new vegan only restaurant was like. I believe Chi Le's mastery of spices and sauces is outstanding and our party was enchanted with the lobster roll with hoisin sauce, the turmeric fish, kim chi fried rice, and my personal favorite, Dan Dan noodles in a savory beef sauce. I am not a convert to vegan, but of the restaurants I've experienced thus far, Chi Vegan is outstanding.

Really delicious and fresh food. They fed a vegan and a non-vegan and we both left full and extremely happy. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Chi

The food at Chi Vegan was outstanding. Absolutely mind-blowing! The turmeric vegan fish was one of my favourites, as well as the claypot chik'n curry. The cocktail menu is excellent. Even the truffle fries were very tasty.

The food was amazing and super creative and the best not overpriced. It would be something I would imagine a Masterchef would create. Hands down the best vegan food and drinks I had in Vancouver.

The change to vegan is wonderful. I had the ‘turmeric fish dish’ and it was so delicious 15/10. Would Definitely have it again, like today....

The food was lovely. The server forgot one of the items we ordered. We did not want to reorder the item as the food took quite a long time. Staff members were very nice and polite. Will definitely be back!

The food was great, service was a little slow but we didn't mind.
The most disappointing thing was that none of the staff was wearing masks. For that reason i won't be coming back unfortunately.

I gave this restaurant such a low eating because I never got to eat there! We made a reservation and turned up at the restaurant, but it was closed - no sign of why it was closed. We were allowed to make a reservation and we double/triple checked online that it should be open. Went out of our way to go there and given no reason/explanation as to why it was closed. Disappointed

Food was delicious and authentic. Service was attentive and efficient. Decor was beautiful. Price point is a bit expensive; however you are paying for quality ingredients. I would say this is a great place to save for a special dining experience.

First dinner at Chi, for Dine Out Vancouver Festival menu $35. Excellent food. Group of 4 sharing dishes. fantastic 3 course meal- Rolls and Chickpea Cauliflower Curry were highlights. That said, shameless up-selling of appetizers, mains and desserts on the fixed menu on the night we were there. $10 here, $5 there. The principle of the matter makes me less enthusiastic about visiting again.

The food wasn't as good as what I've had from their regular menu. Several of the dishes were too intense to taste the subtle flavors that were hidden.

This is our 4th time at Chi. We keep going back in spite of the poor service but this truly will be our last time. We had a reservation but they kept us waiting for 15-20 minutes without even acknowledging us when we walked in. They had a set menu for Dine Out at $35 but there were extra charges for three quarters of the dishes. Just adjust the overall cost rather than adding extra to everything! They supposedly had a full bar but couldn’t make most simple cocktails bc they didn’t have vermouth. The sever was snobby and when we finally talked to the owner to tell her that we do love the food but dislike the service and were confused about all the surcharges, including for rice we didn’t order, she complained about how hard it is to find good staff and then forgot all about our dessert order. We gave her a chance to salvage our opinion of her restaurant in that moment and were really hoping she would...The food is good but not worth the bad service.

Modern Vietnamese. Elegant room, unique menu. Maybe not what you have had before for Vietnamese. This is a step up. We tried a variety of dishes: salad rolls, squash curry, sablefish, beef with watercress. All fresh and veg forward. Nothing heavy or deep fried here. You walk out feeling good. Cocktails are delicious, full of fresh herbs and chiles...
Chef came out to greet her guests, such a welcoming host.

My friend and I found this restaurant after walking around west 4th and I'm happy we picked this restaurant. Everything was delicious, especially the Tumeric Sablefish bowl. The drink called "what the pho" was very flavourful and I'm not the type to drink cocktails but the server recommended it and now I love the drink.

The servers were all very friendly. The food was better than the Vietnamese food I've tried before and they have different dishes that are Vietnamese but lesser-known.

Love the food. The shaken beef was delicious and so were the duck rolls. They have a wide selection of drinks, unlike many other Vietnamese restaurants. I think this place would be good for a date night or a family meal. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family

The food ingredient quality is better than avg Vietnamese restaurants for sure but the pricing kinda tells that. However i wouldn’t say it really levitates the taste of the dishes. Plus im really not happy seeing wrong openning hrs on yelp n website which are both diff from google.

Poor service. Waitress doesn’t apologize for misunderstanding that we grabbed a table without an escort. We’re not stupid, lady.

Lemongrass chicken was not fully cooked and salty.
