It was my friend and I’s last meal in Vancouver before we flew back Toronto. We had a wonderful meal here. Everything we ordered was equally unique and delicious. Our cocktails were also a great compliment to our meal. Our server, Alex, was very informative, patient, and provided great hospitality. We will definitely be back whenever we visit Vancouver again!

This is what modern restaurant in 2018 should be: unpretentious setting, great and friendly service and crazy good creative Michelin star worthy food. Go, oh please go, you will love it!

Hands down my favourite restaurant in Vancouver. I live for their oyster shots, cod roe potatoes and foie gras rice bowl. Staff are super friendly, interior is beautiful, drinks are super yummy and they have the best moscow mule in the city for happy hour!

Wasn’t wowed by the food and I had read some decent reviews. Odd pairings and just not flavours I would want to eat again. One server was good but the other just always seemed uncomfortable. Intimate interior and maybe it was just an off night but was let down by the food.

Visited Vancouver and found this place, unique. From Boston and limited exposure to Asian Fusion- and this was done with most unusual combination of flavors and ingredients, but tastes were balanced and interesting. Staff couldn't have been nicer and more attentive, as well as knowledgeable. It was a quiet night and probably allowed for more attention than usual. neighborhood could be off putting to some, but we took a cab, and was not a deterrent. atmosphere was good, with or original art work on the walls.
Very good food.

The food was outstanding. Every time I eat here the food seems to get better. The overall food experience was great. The only negative was one of the wait staff who keep bumping into us as we were dining. Not very sensitive to the fact that the tables are tightly placed.

We enjoyed the food! The summer salad was complex and and delicious. The eggplant and okra was tasty but I would have preferred the eggplant to have cooked a minute more. Still it was very good!

The sockeye salmon was also very good but I would have much preferred to have the fillet grilled rather than sous vide. The tomato confit was delicious as were the fresh heirloom tomatoes. The strange combination of celery and chiso in the granita was a very nice surprise and very delicious!

We shared the two desserts: honey panna cotta thickened with agar agar, which made it a bit less rich but still delicious and perfect for hot weather, and the chocolate pudding with cherries and lychee, which was also very good. The two desserts complemented each other.

I wish I tried the pork belly because it looked very good.

It was our first trip to Vancouver. We ate here at a friend’s recommendation. It was fantastic - especially the mushroom dish with the purée, sauce, and ramen egg!

All courses were delicious and the service was helpful and knowledgeable.

We only wish we had more time so we could have opted for the full tasting menu. Would definitely make it a point to return next time we’re in town.

We both ordered the prix fix menu and were delighted with many of the dishes.

We felt the summer salad had a bit too much salt.

I felt the duck was perfect. Absolutely remarkable job with the duck.

It's hard to quite summarise our evening at Pidgin, incredible service, chefs table, an attentive waiter who managed to service our ever need without intruding at all. The food was simply stunning, umami flavours from every dish. Superb hand-crafted cocktails. One of the best meals I've ever had.

As expected.. a unique place that offers unique food. It's also delicious. Highlight of the day were the Halibut Corral and Venison Tartare. The fish was so plump and juicy. The sauce with juicy lard and special vinaigrette topping.. too good. The venison was so fresh with asian pear and black sesame dressing, paired with make-to-order-crunchy-crackling-chicharron (literally would pop as served). I cannot think myself not to go back here again.

Our server Ry was the best too. Excellent insight of food and cocktails. Knowing us first timers, he would explicably describe the food and drinks, the taste, and the right way to consume it. All the staffs are well-dressed and very friendly as well. It's gotten busy as the night came by, but they kept up really well looking so effortless.

Plus, the ambient is just perfect. Such a contrast from the outside. I really appreciate the interior design from custom comfy seats to a wall that works to hold our menu and bowls for sharing. Lighting level was perfect. Song volume is just right. People who come here I think aren't so loud in general, which is nice that the design and setting help us to behave ourself more.

New favourite!

Second time coming here using a Travel Zoo Voucher. Was a great experience, much better than the first actually. They rotate the menu often, which can be nice. Food this time around was excellent. First time not so much. Really nice cocktails as well. Reccomend it, definitely with the TZ voucher.

A fusion blend between Asian Cuisines(specifically Japanese style) and Northwestern Pacific flavour. The dishes could be a miss or a hit, Foie Gras bowl is something I genuinely enjoyed though. Service can be improved for a high-end joint like this. But after all, I would rate the overall experience for 4 Stars. If you are a duck liver enthusiast, this is the place worth driving hours for that one tiny bowl of heaven. But if you are just a normal diner that wants to try out something new, I won’t recommend it.

There were some items served that I had never even heard of before so it was interesting to get to try new things.
