Maenam is on a stretch of blocks in Kits that offers seriously good eateries; in comparison, it is more basic, not as adventurous, not as eccentric perhaps. But the food is decent and it is not an expensive place, so we need restaurants like Maenam...More

If you want excellent Thai food in Vancouver, Maenam is the place. Varied and creative menu. Angus An is an amazing chef and is updating the menu regularly as seasonal ingredients come in. Staff friendly and knowledgeable.
