Tiny and not fancy but super-tasty and fresh - tried the pad thai and green curry. Two outside tables made it a good choice on a sunny day!

After living in Thailand for a long time, it's hard to go out for Thai food sometimes. The food is just not as good, so I end up making it at home (which is also not as good but is cheaper than being disappointed in...More

Small basic Thai restaurant with a few small tables inside and two outside. Nice choice of appetizers and main courses. We had the whole wheat noodles with chicken, the spring rolls and chicken sate. The spring rolls only contained rice noodles and tiny pieces of...More

Thai Basil is a small, family-owned Thai restaurant. The food was excellent, freshly cooked and piping hot. The service was excellent; the waitress catered to all our needs. The only downside was the seating area was unclean and people were smoking outside the restaurant. But...More

Though a small place but food is good and reasonably price. This is nit fine dining the place is busy lunch time as most people take out. Had the yellow curry and fried prawn wonton - really good but the fried tofu quite ordinary.

I had a rice noodle soup with chicken, and it was quite unremarkable. There is no service at this restaurant. You order at the counter, pay and then pick up your meal. We sat at a table on the sidewalk.

I ate lunch at Thai Basil (the Davie Village location on Thurlow) while in Vancouver recently and ordered the red curry with tofu and a side of rice. My meal tasted delicious and had lots of flavour and the perfect amount of spice (it was...More

Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver.
It is the only like area in the world to have a
permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the
city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging
from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant.
By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic
boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines,
humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside
