Had Lettuce Wrap, Fish Curry, Mixed Vegetables, and Rice. Everything was okay but nothing to recommend. Don't know whether this is typical of Malaysian cuisine or just Kari House but, in my experience, food of this type is much more flavourful at Thai restaurants. (On a side note, the owners' small child kept wandering about making a lot of noise.... More

A lovely family run restaurant on the water serving up authentic malaysian food in good quantities. The Satay Ayam is my go to with some roti - YUM! The curries are good and with good heat and flavour - fried rice delish. Eat in or take out - fast and delicious

We love their satay, lovely ginger soup, ginger tea, fried bananas with mango, coconut or green tea ice cream or a wonderful warm mango dessert. Not fancy but friendly and reasonably priced.

Kari House exceeded my expectations as a vegetarian. We visited for lunch on a weekday. The food was outstanding in terms of taste and presentation. Our waitress was helpful in suggesting vegetarian options. We had the Tom-Yam Char Mee with vegetables in lemongrass, the red curry tofu and the mixed vegetables in sambal sauce. All the dishes were so flavourful!... More

I keep going back whenever I'm in town. For such a small family-run restaurant, it has a menu that is varied in selection but always great tasting. Friendly and affordable.

The restaurant was not very clean or organized. It was a hot day and no air conditioning. When we came in no one was really there. Nobody was there to seat us etc. We almost left then a person did come and said sit anywhere......waited then for menses etc. Eventually ordered and received ok food, we both took a couple... More

The restaurant is located in the Riversong complex on Bayview street in Steveston; it is not easily seen from the road, but it is near the Blenz Coffee in the same complex. The place is fairly small with no more than 10-15 tables; and it can be very busy during summer weekends. The menu is fairly extensive and also covers... More

It's not as bad as it sounds, especially if you don't mind non-authenticity lol, heard Cantonese-speaking chefs...ah, who knows, maybe there were trained in Malaysia. Against my judgement, ordered the Tom-yam seafood, the sourness way too powering. But a good place if you're craving this cuisine in the summer, good views. A bit hard to find from the street as...

My wife and I lived very close to Steveston Village, and one day we just decided to try this restaurant out. We were there at around 6pm and was seated promptly, and that was the end of the good experience. After we sat down, there were a few Caucasian families and couples that came in after us. And we were... More

This is a great place for families or with a number of people so that different dishes can be ordered and sampled. We have eaten here many times and the food is always well prepared, fresh and tasty. Even the grandkids love coming here.
