Went there for lunch and tasty food. Ordered soup, pad thai and a number of combination dishes. Good food and friendly staff.

Pretty typical thai food. Good. Spicy. Wasnt anything particularly amazing though and my brother wanted mild and ended up with no spice one time and still really spicy another.

I haven owners to this family owned restaurant 5 times! I love the layering of flavours they have in all their dishes. I try something different every time and I haven't been disappointed yet. The staff are very hospitable. If you want food with robust flavour and cooked to the perfect texture then this is your place.

Only 2 of us. So i didnt order curry. I had sweet and sour pork. Beef with snow peas. Both were very sub par. As in mall food could of been better. The tom yam seafood soup was ok. I have eaten here before. I remembered last experience to be better. I guess stick to curry since that was ok.

I've been coming here for lunch and dinner for many years. If you have a large group or going at peak lunch time, make a reservation. Lunch, they offer special preset meals to help you get in, eat, and get back to work. Dinner, no parking in front along Kingsway until 600PM. They do have a few spots in the... More

Very reliable offerings- I've never ordered a bad dish. The owners seem like very gracious people and the service is good.

New owners? New chef? Food budget halved? This was our third time here in over four years. Their Pad See-Iw noodle and Tom Kah soup were okay. Their Khao phat Sap-Bpa-Roht (pineapple fried rice) was not. Some cruel person decided ketchup-based rice was THE way to impress customers. Even more impressive were the Superstore-bulk raisins and peanuts on the side.

Food was ok, like the dish presentation but service was terrible. We visited on a Saturday noon, only 3-4 tables including ours (less than 20% occupancy). Not sure what's the rush to collect our dishes while we were still holding cutlery & eat. When the waiter found out there were food on the plate, asked if we still wanted to... More

We stopped there for lunch when we arrived in the Vancouver area. The food was very good and authentic. Like some Asian restaurants they tend to serve things as they get ready, so our appetizers arrived after my entree. Other than that everything was fine...

A nice, neat Thai restaurant with a typical Thai menu and great service. The only reason I say "could be so much better" is that I ordered a roasted duck dish with pineapple curry and could not find the duck!!! It was beautifully presented in half a hollowed out pineapple with lots of peppers and other vegetables and what appeared... More
