Bob Likes Thai Food

1521 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6J 1W6

This hip, narrow room is always hopping at lunchtime, and with good reason. The collection of $10 lunch specials includes curries, pad Thai and other Thai classics served with rice and salad. The flavours are top-notch, and the authentic pad Thai is gloriously ketchup-free. Tofu can be subbed for meat in any of the lunch special items, and everything’s available to go if you’d prefer to nosh at your desk.

West Restaurant + Bar

2881 Granville St, Vancouver, BC V6H 3J4

Offering the classiest lunch special on this list, West presents a three-course prix fixe lunch for $38. If you advise the wait staff you’re in a hurry, they guarantee you’ll be done in 45 minutes – but if no deadlines loom, this beautiful room is a great spot to linger. The menu offers two choices for each course and rotates to feature seasonal ingredients, so you can indulge often without repeats.

Lin Chinese Cuisine and Tea House

1537 Broadway W, Vancouver, BC V6J 1W6

The $8.99 lunch specials here include one main dish plus soup (hot and sour or chicken corn) and steamed rice. Perennial favourites include ginger beef, sweet and sour pork and wok-fried spicy green beans.
