"Having seen and heard numerous great reviews about this place and coupled with the seductive pictures on its website, I decided to pay a visit during Dine Out.
Having dined at several Michelin star restaurants worldwide, I must say Pidgin is the kind of fusion that would only impress those who haven't really had tasty Asian meals (for Caucasians) or tasty Western food (for Asians). If Michelin guide were here, it will not have one star nor bib gourmand.
For the price you are paying (regular menu/non Dine-out $30+), you would expect the tastiness of a good steak (the Keg) or a very good table of Chinese food (Kirin or Sun Sui Wah). Unfortunately, you are only paying for the contemporary presentations and fusion experiments that do not quite work (you can tell the chef is lacking the mileage and effort). For instance, the ramen egg and nori sauce are typical elements in Japanese household cuisine and ramen shops. They do not belong in fine dining restaurants at all (you pay $2 at Marutama and you can have a better egg) One can easily find nori sauce in Japanese supermarkets; it's totally lacking effort to make an authentic sauce. Or in an average Chinese restaurant, you can find much tastier blistered green peas. To be honest, none of the dishes have a combination that compliments one another. We added black truffle to our steak, but it does not elevate that dish at all; it's a different story if there's an option to add it to risotto. Speaking of risotto, even just mixing uni (sea urchin) to a mushroom risotto would have greater umami than everything on its menu.
Perhaps I'm disappointed due to my high expectations before my visit. I'm just surprised by the generous reviews that people put out on here. I merely want to give my most sincere feedbacks for those foodies who really care about the dining experience they wish to have.
For similar prices, there are plenty of better options in Vancouver such as Chambar, Acorn and Bistro Pastis etc."

"I have been wanting to go to Pidgin for a while now and hadn't had the chance. We went on saturday night January 30th at 8:30 pm and did the dineout menu and it was simply amazing. Lots of food, great presentation on the plates and the flavour combination was simply delightful. We got lucky and got the table attached to the kitchen so we could see everything they were doing in the kitchen. Big props to the kitchen staff, very well ran kitchen and everyone knew what they were doing. The chef took time to teach his chefs in training and the communication between them was great. You could tell that they all respected one another in there. The bartenders working were funny, friendly and extremely easy to talk to and made us some awesome drinks that they have. We also had these awesome appetizers that were oysters in a shot glass."

"Overall the food really surprised us. Interesting combination on ingredients that we would never thought that match so well together. The price is pretty up there so can't go that often. The night we went was too noisy because we barely could hear each other. Great service, good drink menu and we will come back again occasionally."

"I went here with a good friend on a Monday and had the Dine Out Menu. We were served about 5-6 dishes, with dessert. There where some items I normally wouldn't like, such as squid, roe paste, roe etc however I ended up loving everything, even the squid which surprised me. If you have a special occasion coming up I would suggest this resturant."

"We truly enjoyed the Dine Out (Omnivore) Vancouver menu. Lots of variety and unusual combinations well presented by knowledgeable, friendly and efficient staff. All four of us enjoyed the food. Two members of our group ordered the wine pairings which seemed to be well priced. It's wonderful to see such a great business succeed (and thrive) in the face of so much local opposition. We will most certainly go back and recommend this to friends and visitors to the city."

"We shared a beautiful six course menu with friends last Saturday. Each course was delicious and beautifully presented. We sat at the Chef's Table and enjoyed conversing with the chefs. We asked about the unusual foods being served and we were delighted with the whole dining experience. Thank you for an food event and we'll be back for the eight course Chef's Table menu."

"Came for Dine-Out 2016, and the food was excellent! Wonderful flavours! Servers explained the dishes, had a great time. Been wanting to try this restaurant since it opened. Just sad to see that so many other parties made reservations and failed to show."

"$40 and 5 courses to be shared in pairs. After 2.5 hours to complete all 5 courses (which were each small) I left the restaurant as hungry as I was when I showed up. The food was very tasty, but the amounts so small that I likely would have been just right if I'd eaten both portions as opposed to the half meant for me. It was especially made worse because it took 2.5 hours to get served all 5 portions and it was $40 per person.
Pros: food was tasty, cocktails really good, ambiance was fun and trendy
Cons: expensive dineout menu, fixed portions, portions much too small, took too long

"Had heard so many good reviews on this place & have been meaning to try their 8-course tasting menu but never got around to it. Finally excited to go during Dine-Out (they were not offering any other tasting menu options during this time). The first appetizer dish (grilled bread with nori puree, taramasalata & ramen egg prepared perfectly semi-runny) was very tasty so I was excited for what else was to come. Sad to say we were very underwhelmed by the rest of the dishes. Some of the combination of flavours were either too strong, or one worked, the other didn't. Each course was served family style but the servings were pretty tiny. Did they forget about the rest of the family? lol..."

"I went to this restaurant at the second day of 2016 dine out and it was my first time to visit. As a typically Chinese girl, I hanged out with my best friends whose are Chinese too. We all recommended those food although there was not very like the taste of Asian food but it use the style and food to make it as a mixture Western and Asian version. They serviced as family style.
Since we have 3 girls so I thought it would not be enough food for us but actually we all got too full. haha kidding. But those food are pretty enough for girls.
We all said most of food were great but just some taste were not our favourites. We tried 2 cocktails which the guy recommend for us to combine with our dine out menu. Those cocktails were great for girls. Not very strong but fresh and sweet taste. Had some cocktails and good food and hanged out with best friends in this great ambiance restaurant in a rainy day ( it was a weekend) was the best thing i had for recent days.
And other thing is it is close to gas town, so you can take a walk round gas town and come to have some food. I like the decoration and feeling of this restaurant. Definitely i will come again although it was not in dine out festival."
