Bring your big party to Granville Island for gorgeous views and keep the party going with picturesque after-dinner walks.

Sammy J’s Grill & Bar
One of the most popular and accessible Asian grocery stores that never disappoints. We’ve mentioned their cakes before because their bakery section is unbeatable. We love picking up hot food and cannot leave without coconut buns and shrimp shumai.

Mr. Ho’s is a perfect place to dine out for big parties and large families. We can’t praise their friendly and fast service enough, especially when you have a lot of hungry tummies to fill. Their top-notch dumplings keep them busy! They are great with walk-ins, but we suggest calling ahead.

Burgers, sushi, pastas- Joey has it all- plus great seating for big parties. This vibrant spot is great for lively parties. If you need to book your party as a full fledged event, they can accommodate that as well. For a large party book here.
