They changed their menu and a few satpale items like crepes and the bang mi burger didn't make it. Pretty sad since there were outstanding. I had the laksa soup and it was missing a hint of lemongrass or ginger to make it pop. It was too creamy

Great food, very refreshing and well balanced! The pho was my favorite, especially since I never thought I could like so many interesting different flavors, all combined in one dish! Just delicious! great staff, friendly and making sure we have had everything we needed. We will definitely go back more often!

The service while seemingly divided between multiple different staff was timely and friendly. The food was great but fell slightly short of what we would have wanted, ideally. As plant-based eaters from Montreal and Vancouver we are very experienced in eating at vegan/PB alternative restaurants and we had a few constructive criticisms for the dishes we ordered. This being said, overall, we enjoyed our meals.

Amazing restaurant! We had the best service and great food recommendations from the wait staff. Everyone was incredibly friendly. Some of the best vegan food I've had in Vancouver.

You have to try the veggie spring rolls! Food was good, and the server was very knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely come back.

It’s my 2nd time here. The 1st was a 5* but have to take off 2* for the poor service this time. Whilst there were 3 staff on the floor, only 1 could take orders. We weren’t drinkers and weren’t too impressed with the non-alcoholic beverages (which we had tried during our first visit); hence, did not order any. Although we have already told the server we were ready to order our food when she tried to ask us about the drinks, she made us wait. She would rather be cleaning tables than taking our order - btw, there was no other customers waiting.
When she came over alas, we said we wanted to try the spicy tuna roll. She told us it was sold out (our reservation was at 7). This threw us off so we have to re-decide - wonder why she didn’t let us know when she seated us or any time during the long wait. Anyway. So we were a little indecisive between 2 dishes so we asked for her suggestion. She simply said they are very different - like, we couldn’t read the menu. Other places would be much more helpful in this regard (eg based on what we had ordered or asked about our preferences). She was just focused in upselling - insisting that we order 2 apps and 2 mains. We would have if you had the spicy tuna roll. We ended up ordering just 3 apps, 1 main and a dessert, she showed us her disappointed face. We found the amount of food to be just right despite her saying that we ordered too little.

I had a good first experience at Chi Vegan for a dinner date with my husband. The food was delicious and the ambiance was very classy and clean. Service was good although a little bit slow. Our food did not come out together and so my husband ended up waiting quite a while so we could eat together when my food came out too. I felt the dishes were a little on the pricier side for what they were. Nevertheless we would come back to try more of their menu. I applaud them for changing their menu to fully vegan.

Our servers (plural) were crap. We had to keep hailing them for menus, water, napkins, more water.
Completely ruined the first time experience. I understand Covid but it wasn’t busy.
The food was AMAZING!!!!

I met a friend for lunch on Sunday. We had a booth table and I faced the finely decorated east wall. I chose the Pho Ga for lunch - it was delicious! My friend, who typically eats meat, thoroughly enjoyed the lettuce wrap. Although the portions were sufficient, we decided to get dessert - waffles with passionfruit and white chocolate... It was a perfectly sweet and light finish to our lunch. Also, the service was great during our visit!

We had an outdoor table, and the serving staff wore masks, so we had no worries whatsoever about the safety of dining at Chi. Chi was offering a special prix fixe menu that my companions and I enthusiastically chose from. For starters we had the cauliflower, the pot stickers and the salad roll. There were three of us, and the kitchen split everything into thirds so we could safely try each dish. Our mains were the pad thai and the vegan chicken which came with side brown rice. The mains were excellent! Dessert for all three of us was the raspberry sorbet.
I encourage you try the non-alcoholic ice tea, black tea flavored with spices and non-dairy milk, similar to, but unique from iced chai.

Limited menu choices due to dine-out at dinner. Pot stickers were good. Cauli wings were just okay. Pad Thai and tofu bowl were just okay.

We were there for the Dine Outside Festival. The 3 course menus was excellent! We hope they add the kabocha curry to their regular menu, it was to die for! The server was nice but it took a really long time for our entrees to come out after the appetizers. This was our third time eating at Chi and we will certainly be back!

Our experience at Chi was incredible! The food was to die for, the ambiance was perfect for a special date night, and the service was outstanding. Also such a great value for a 3 course meal during Dine Out! Whether you are plant based or not I would highly recommend as the food is top notch!

I had such a great experience here. The decor and ambiance were lovely, our server was friendly and helpful, the chef came out and greeted our table - and the food was AMAZING! The best meal I've had in a long time - you need to try the Bahn Xeo taco. My new favorite place!
