My Thai food expert buddy took me along there again recently as we had not been for a while. It's a tiny, tiny restaurant but the food gods have always smiled on us and only once have we had to wait a little while to...More

I had a rice noodle soup with chicken, and it was quite unremarkable. There is no service at this restaurant. You order at the counter, pay and then pick up your meal. We sat at a table on the sidewalk.

When we visit Vancouver, Thai Basil is always our go to place for delicious food. The food is always consistently good. The vegetarian dishes are among my favorite. Friendly staff and fast service you can always count on.

The portions were ample and hot. The spice was just right. Water was self service from a clear container that needed some spigot repairs. The inside seating was for less than a dozen. Outside seating for four. Perfect for walk-by eating or take out to...More

Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside
