I stopped in for lunch after seeing a big sign out front that read "$5.95 and up, lunch specials." This made my heart skip a beat, because I'm cheap and I love cheap asian food. I had the Pad Thai with Salad for $7.95 -- The portions are very generous, and it tasted like authentic Pad Thai from the streets... More

I live a few blocks from this little gem and it's a very consistent go-to for great Thai food. I have a few places in Vancouver that I like but these guys are excellent and very reasonable. I like to do take out and head down the street to the beach for sunset. It's a small hole in the wall... More

It was easy to find. Small, clean and good food. The only surprise was that the toilet is in the kitchen. But as I could see, it is usually for take outs, so I guess it was normal. And the toilet was very clean, so I didn't have any problem with that. Thank you guys.

I live a few blocks away from here and honestly this is one of my favourite local spots! Everything I have had on the menu is delicious and ideal for takeout. Whenever I have visitors to town this is one of my top recommendations. Enjoy!

Nice little Thai take out place. Seemed like a go-to place for many in the neighborhood. The red curry was very good.

We were not happy about the meal.. The rice was good, but it was not spicy enough, and too much pumpkin and noodles.. Sorry, will not go there again..

This is a little hole in the wall that offers good home cooked thai food for a reasonable price. The dining area is very small and basic. Too best enjoy your meal, I would recommend take out. Then you can focus on good fundamental Thai food.

I love this place. Been there 3 times in a row in just a week already. Glad i discovered this restaurant as they have lots of veggie options and the spice level is just my kind. I love hot and spicy thai food and the preparations here are just perfect. Highly recommended. Value for money and the amount is more... More

Staying in Davie Village

Neighbourhood Profile
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 many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
