You might be thinking why the name is Ying Thai 2 and where is Ying Thai 1? Ying Thai 1 was situated in Victoria Street in Abbotsford opened since 1996 and claimed to be one of the best Thai food around this area. Not long...More

Went here last year, the food was really nice as always. Unfortunately after I went there, I always had swelling gum shortly after dining there (this has happened twice, possibly due to their rusty tap). On our last visit, I went there together with my...More

Ordered pandan chicken, pad thai, chicken curry, beef curry, pork skin salad, tom yum & a couple of bowls of rice for 4 of us. We cleaned up & finished happy. Perhaps we were rather hungry. Taste was balanced, not too tangy nor too spicy....More

There was a whole cockroach in the rice! Very unhygienic. It is obvious that the kitchen environment is horrible. This is our second visit, but we are not going to this place anymore. We were too disgusted and forgot to take a picture. No matter...More

Visited this Place for dinner. Food was good and service was okay. My only complaint was that you get charged an extra 2% on the bill for credit card payment.

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
