Top Five Things the Metrotown Area has to Offer:

1. Tons of places to eat within walking distance.
We have prepared a list of hidden gems we highly recommend:

  • Indian Wok
    This small family owned restaurant can be found at 5212 Kingsway – not too far from Metrotown or Royal Oak skytrain stations. The menu is Indian Chinese fusion and offers lots of gluten free options as well. The veggie pakoras are the best! The Lunch menu is amazing value with your choice of soup, main and rice.
  • Paul’s Subs
    Located just behind Maywood school at 4608 Imperial and a short walk to the skytrain. Besides serving a variety of hot and cold subs – we recommend the all day breakfast. Go here to enjoy a cup of coffee and the newspaper or a sudoku while you wait for your food. The owner does everything herself so sit back and relax while you wait – she feeds you well!
  • La Forêt 
    Can’t help wishing this were a Tapas restaurant but nonetheless it is a beautifully renovated former auto body shop on Jubilee just off of Imperial. While retaining the warehouse feel, modern industrial decor is combined with indoor planters and loads of natural light to create a visually appealing space. They serve cafe fare, breakfasts, paninis and baked goods.
  • Trattoria 
    Part of the Glowbal group of restaurants, this is a reliable restaurant but we love the Wine Wednesdays where you get 50% off all bottles of, red, white and Bubbly and on Tratt Tuesdays, all pasta dishes are $13.

2. Lots of things to do without a car

3. Every amenity you need within walking distance

  • Metropolis: Canada’s third largest indoor mall with over 400 stores and even a Walmart planned to open this Fall
  • You will find all of your grocery needs at Metrotown including Superstore and T&T Supermarket and even doctors, dentists, restaurants, pharmacies, clothing – everything you can possibly need is offered at the Mall or the surrounding businesses on Kingsway.
  • You will even find the largest library in Burnaby within walking distance
  • Bonsor Recreation Centre offers weight room, indoor pool, programs, fitness classes, racquet sports and a seniors centre

4. Transit, Transit, Transit

  • Choose from three skytrain stations spanning the Metrotown area: Metrotown, Patterson and Royal Oak Stations
  • There is a large busloop at Metrotown so it is easy to hop a bus to the skytrain station from anywhere in the Metrotown area
  • There are also buses that go up and down Kingsway to allow access to all of the shops and services along the busy corridor

5. Lots of planned growth yet to come

The City of Burnaby adopted a revised Downtown Metrotown Plan in the Summer of 2017 which allows for higher density of land for residential and commercial spaces. The City is moving towards creating a true downtown area for the City of Burnaby. So expect a lot more amenities and condos to come!
