Sai Woo

In the heart of Chinatown an historic storefront conceals the secrets of Sai Woo. Our modern dining and hidden downstairs lounge serve Asian inspired cuisine created with fresh ingredients and surprising, light hearted twists. Cocktails are crafted with precision using top-shelf liquors, fine teas, and exotic fruits. The original Sai Woo Chop Suey first opened its doors in 1925 and flourished as a local hangout for decades, preserving some of Vancouver’s oldest history. Our location today brings new life to this historical landmark with a modern and innovative menu.

Chef Issac Ko creates a mix of small and large shared plates, including Szechuan Crispy Black Pepper Beef, Fried Cauliflower and Tofu, Korean Scallion Pancakes, and Chinese Paella.

Nestled beneath Sai Woo in the Woo Bar, barkeep Liam Dolphin mixes bespoke cocktails and serves up quality local brews to accompany our amazing food. We also throw great parties and would love to host your next event. Call today to book your date, organize some live music or a DJ, and arrange a menu. Open late Tuesday through Saturday for dinner
