We had a wonderful lunch experience except for one thing. Our server cleared my plate BEFORE my wife had finished her meal and took her knife as well! Plates should not be removed until ALL guests at a table are finished eating.

Mount Pleasant
About the restaurant
Our food consists of thoughtfully prepared recipes that will take you on a culinary journey along the ancient Silk route.

As evening descends upon the vibrant city of Vancouver, Chai Lounge comes to life like the courts of the eastern Raja's. Imagine a warm, dreamy and visually arresting venue where global sounds cascade the room over the din of lively conversations. Spicy scents waft from the kitchen followed by an abundance of delicious trans-himalayan cuisine.

Chai Lounge is our landmark location. There is no place like it in Vancouver,and visitors from near and far marvel at the ornate carpets, ceiling mandala's, and the nature-inspired furnishings.
The large central stage features a rotating line-up of world class musicians and dancers.

The location is first rate, and the view is outstanding. A much more enjoyable dining experience in False Creek than anything Granville Island puts out. My one minor complaint is how they assign tables - in an empty restaurant with multiple open patio tables, we were made to feel like we had to eat inside. Once I asked, however, we were moved outside and shown an excellent time by our server, Jua.

In general the food was mostly very good. The only problem I have is the roast of the week! Using mustard on the beef is a big no no. Mustard is considered a Priority allergen!

Wonderful cozy neighborhood restaurant. We went for an early mid-week meal. It was quiet and comfortable. Food was very good. Service was fine. They have a comprehensive wine list and made a great recommendation to complement my meal. We had escargots, soup, lamb, salmon. Everything tasted great. Will return.
