I used to like O Thai on Broadway since they had a great atmosphere with resonable prices and great food. Recently they revamped their menu and it's half the size with lots of fusion dishes and no longer has that traditional touch.

Reposting from other thread: a solid Thai restaurant in Yaletown is Simply Thai. It's a small restaurant, but has great service and more upscale white tablecloth atmosphere. The food is fantastic and more of a traditional Thai menu with many choices.

Cho Muang: steamed flower dumplings stuffed with minced chicken, onion, and spices.


Gaeng Ped Bped Yang: BBQ duck in red curry with coconut milk, banboo shoots, peppers, tomato, pineapple.


Some sort of fish and green beans in bean paste sauce.


Pad Thai

+1 for Sala Thai, I've had better food experiences at the Burrard one than the Cambie one, but I like the seating on Cambie better.

I really like Wimaan on Broadway right between Spruce and Oak.

I would agree that if you are more interested in "authentic" thai, Sala Thai (Burrard) is closer to what you want. The decor and presentation of the food appears to be more traditional than other thai restaurants around Vancouver. I can't say it's actually authentic since I've never been to Thailand.

I have not visited the Cambie location.

When my bf and I have a sudden craving for Thai food at 2 in the morning, we always hit 24/7 Thai on Broadway (at Oak). Their pad thai and basil fried rice are not bad.

Urban Thai Bistro in Yaletown gets my vote. The twist that they put on their curries takes them to another level!!!

I'm not really into Thai, but there is a place near my work that I enjoy. Thai Basil on the corner of Davie and Thurlow. It's diagonally across from the Starbucks and across the street from Denny's. It's a really small place, one of those hole in the wall kinda joints.

My Thai in Langley. I'm not a Thai food fan, but I know plenty of people that love it. The owner is some ex-chef of nobility over there. I've no idea what it is, but it sounds impressive.

Never been to Simply Thai but I heard that it is good, Sala Thai seemed mediocre to me, the Thai House is okay and to me is a baseline. Urban Thai Bistro is owned by the Thai House, they took the standard Thai House curries and made them exciting and exploding with flavor... Mucho lemon grass in the yellow curry and young coconut in the red curry... Yummmm, how can you not like that?
