Beautiful restaurant! Loved the music, atmosphere and service. Steak was a little overcooked, but still tasted wonderful! The poutine was to die for. I got the purple goddess cocktail and it’s so good i’m gonna try and make it at home! Nick was my bartender and he did excelled. Thank you

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.

East Is East fans – have come here for special occasions with many times over many years! This was by far the best service by all staff members who interacted with us ever! The only area of improvement is the time it took for the first platters of the Chai feast to arrive… Other than that perfecto!

About the restaurant
If you can't find the time you are looking for please give us a call!

The High Mountain Brewing Company, Brewhouse, is one of the busiest spots in the village all year round. With a separate restaurant, bar and mezzanine, the Brewhouse is capable of accommodating groups large and small. The pub has a cozy two-sided fireplace and lots of TVs, it's a perfect place to watch the game when you're tired from playing all day. Our restaurant is warm and family friendly with a great kids' menu and a huge patio for Whistler's long, hot summers.

The cuisine is an inspired and appetizing mix of barbeque and rotisserie classics with exceptional pizza and pasta options. These flavours are complimented by the range of handcrafted ales and lagers which we brew onsite.

The BrewHouse is located next door to the Celebration Plaza with commanding views of the Olympic rings.

We were a large group and got the table we requested which we love having for our annual over 2 decade Girl Guide Leader Whistler trip because it is key to our lunch experience! Our server was fantastic as was the food and we will be back next year!!!

Everything was good. The food was what I expected could be a little more high end. I have the beef dip.

We ordered the super humongous (1000 g!!) steak in advance and we were not disappointed. In preparation we did not eat for 2 days prior and may I say... WE WERE NOT DISAPPOINTED :-) We would like to make this meal a tradition on birthdays, weddings, funerals, revolutions and elections.

About the restaurant
Shark Club is Sports HQ. What makes us so confident? Towering big screens showing every game and fight imaginable and a teeth-rattling audio system because a true sports bar always has featured games with the sound on, right? Not to mention, we’ve got an all-star staff that are in game shape to bring the best damn atmosphere outside of the stadium. We’re focused on you, driven by passion and hell-bent on making every trip hall-of-fame worthy.

About the restaurant
Escape from your everyday and everyone else except your crew. Asylum is available for everything from intimate private parties to big blowouts. With capacity of up to 200, Asylum has room for you and all of your family and friends.
Nothing brings the crowd together like a menu made up of easy-to-eat and fun-to-share fare matched up with an extensive selection of quality craft beer and equally crafty cocktails.
Our menu is as dynamic as our entertainment. It’s fresher, more flavourful pub fare prepared with a little extra care and a lot more flare. Don’t tell the performers on stage, but our food might just steal the show.

Live Entertainment every Friday and Saturday.

We were there to celebrate my daughter’s birthday with friends and family and the service was amazing. Sorry I forgot our servers name but she was amazing. She was always there to make sure we were taken care of and we never had to wait too long at all for her to serve us. I would love to hear back from you regarding her name please . Would you let her know that we really appreciate her service. We come to Asylum quite often because we have always had fun and enjoyed live music but I did miss not having music in between the bands break . I hope you are thinking of bringing that back . Thank you
