Our food was good. Levels of spiciness were all medium - didn't matter the # of chili pepper icons on menu. We had green curry (quite good) and kra pow that was good but would have liked more basil. Had a lychee mojito that I would have again. A good fusion.

Ate here with friends on a slow night. Two of the three of us had food so substandard we couldn't eat it. I would have sent it back but nobody came to see how we were. The third of my party only had half of her food delivered even after asking three times. Finally had to get up and look... More

I came here for their lunch one day with a friend, and they have an excellent lunch menu, with excellent lunch specials. It was a cozy atmosphere, and the staff was great!

A large group of us were down in Vancouver on business, and since most of us love Thai food, we decided to try a place we hadn't tried yet. The first thing you notice is the funky décor ...gotta love those chandeliers! The food was good, and the service was friendly, but some of us were almost finished our meals... More

On a quiet Sunday evening I went there for Thai food at the recommendation of my daughters. The atmosphere is kind of funky and fun, although the bright pink is a bit overwhelming, The food was well prepared, some of the best I have had in Canada, well priced, but the service was not great. The servers were clustered in... More

My husband and I came here with our 1.5 year old for lunch on my birthday. It was busy, and we had a kid, so I grant the service staff some leeway in how they dealt with us. But never before have I had such rude service. After about three different interactions with two of the service staff in which... More

Variety – 8/10: A lot to choose from and they even had a special lunch combo menu that is valid until 3PM. You can have appys, fried rice, pad thai, soups, and many more.

This was the message we received loud and clear as we stood there, dumbfounded upon entering the restaurant. The owner appeared to notice our religious garb and then called out "You vegetarian?" we confirmed and he then loudly and repeatedly told us that there was nothing for us to eat on the menu while holding his hands up in a...

All the classics are represented: three colours of curry, pad thai, and a smattering of other choices on the quick lunch menus that cover each place in the bustling lunch hour. There's even a long-form menu if you're intrigued enough to pay more or try something a bit more interesting (my vote goes to green beans or cashew curry). And... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
