About Maenam

The cuisine at Maenam is rooted in balancing intense fresh flavours with seasonal ingredients and locally sourced products, while always considering the context within which these dishes would traditionally be enjoyed. Simplicity, innovation and balance are the key ingredients in chef Angus An’s philosophy behind the authentic Thai dishes served at Maenam. With inspiration found in continuous travel, the menu at Maenam is ever-changing but always served with Thai flare and enjoyed in its traditional context, be it family style dining or riffs on Thai street food.


“He reinvented people’s concepts of what Thai food could be. He also reinvented what a Thai restaurant could be” – Anya Levykh, Westender

“An has been instrumental in not only putting out amazing food night after night but also transforming Vancouver’s dining scene in the process.” – Trevor Melanson, Vancouver Magazine
