Favourable Reviews

“Do Chay makes vegetables taste so damned delicious in street food, noodle and rice bowl forms.” – Mia Stainsby, Vancouver Sun

“I walked into Do Chay expecting to find some variation on a hipster hangout, but was greeted by an uber-friendly spot that makes light and focused veggie fare.” – Neal McLennan, Vancouver Magazine

“That this highly inventive, wholly vegetarian and largely gluten-free Vietnamese kitchen can make its dishes taste authentic without fish sauce, oyster sauce or fermented shrimp paste is remarkable in itself. That they’ve managed to carve out such a modern space with cross-generational appeal on the far reaches of Kingsway is deserving of loud applause.” – Alexandra Gill, The Globe and Mail
