Small restaurant, crowded and noisy but with a lot of personality. Surprisignly, the Pad thai was loaded with heavy sauce and really disappointing. My friend's chicken with rice was really tasty though. Hit and miss.

Typical thai eatery, concentrating on the take-out trade. Has a small number of tables but the restaurant in characterless. Food is not bad, perhaps with more vegetables and less meat that I was expecting. Time to food delivery is varied, from very quick to very, very slow.

This place is tiny, small enough that we called for takeout and they wouldn't take our order because they were too busy....fair enough. Food is ok but a bit heavy on the veg vs meat ratio in many dishes.

It's a small place, so prepared to sit close to other tables. Service was nice and attentive enough. I tried the following: - Ka Prow w. beef. Not bad, just not the best I've had. - Green Curry w. chicken. Again, not bad, just not the best I've had. - Pad Thai. Same as above. - Thai iced tea. Same... More

When I crave solid Thai food this is the go-to place. We visit regularly and I think their menu choices are good and tasty. As much as I like Pho, my favorite is Tom Yum Goong and theirs is very nice. Service is cheerful and attentive. A good choice for a simple evening dinner with a nice flair.

Been there and ordered take out many times per year over the past 10 years. Normally order curries, veg and rice, but occasionally experiment with specials. Taste is as good as anything I ever had in Thailand. Makes sense as it's run by Thai people - meaning authentic. And classic, friendly Thai service.

For the mains I had the prawn Pad Prik -Pao and it was very nice and fresh tasting. My wife the chicken Pad Preao Wann, which she liked. Along with a Chang beer, it... More

Not all the time can you boast one of the best restaurants in town right on your doorstep, but those of us who live in the Lonsdale area of North Vancouver are just that lucky. The springs rolls are delicious and the Pad Thai and the PAD PAK KRA-TIEM veg pic Stir fried assorted vegetables in Thai garlic sauce. (broccoli,... More

We went here on the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint . The place was full (which is always a good sign) and there were many people coming in and out for their take-out food . The authentic Thai food is served in good sized portions and represents good value for the money . The atmosphere is... More
