Visited Urban Thai Bistro on a Friday night, after 7:30pm. The restaurant was empty except for 4 people. Due to it's location on Hamilton Street in trendy Yale Town, parking was impossible. We parked 3 blocks away and walked in Vancouver's pouring rain. We ordered the Pad Namman with chicken and the yellow curry chicken and jasmine rice. We informed... More

What a lovely restaurant not far from our hotel the Opus. The food was plentiful and tasty. The service was quick and efficient. There is plenty of space so wheelchair accessible and comfortable.

Urban Thai offers large portions of reasonably good and reasonably priced thai food. They offer free delivery which is great if you're in the area. It is a decent thai place but lacks a bit of charm and the food is just ok.

Came down here for a tasting to taste a couple main dishes like the yum pineapple fried rice and a number of appetizers from their "Appy Hour" menu. The food was of great quality,delicious flavors and this place is good for groups inside and outside on the patio. My foodie highlights: The seafood curry served in coconut and the spicy... More

Very, very bad customer service should summarize my post. But since I want everyone to know how horrible it was, I will elaborate. My friend and I arrived around 7:15pm to the restaurant which was half empty, but seemed quite lively with a table celebrating a special occasion. Anyways, I remember the time so precisely because the women's 100m freestyle... More

Slow service, had to ask for water. Tofu + duck very good, sticky rice overcooked + terrible. Red curry not hot enough- 2 chillies indicated on menu.

My friend and I had lunch at Urban Thai Bistro few days ago. This is the first time we tried this Thai restaurant. Food is quite similar to the other Thai Restaurants we had tried before, except that the curry (I had the green curry and my friend had the red curry)was a bit too sweet in taste. Besides we...

This Thai was as good as Thailand. We had the red curry with coconut meat and the sweet and sour stir fry with tiger prawns. The food was absolutely excellent and well priced. The portions are generous and the service was pleasant and prompt. I would recommend and I would return.

We ordered 3 appetisers, 3 main courses and 2 portions of sticky rice and this was just right for 3 people. I rate a Thai meal by the Massaman curry and this one was spot on. Service was pleasant and efficient. Not a cheap meal after ordering bottles of beer but very enjoyable.

Staying in Yaletown & False Creek North

Neighbourhood Profile
Yaletown & False Creek North
Yaletown has risen from the ashes of its rough-and-tumble industrial past into one of Vancouver's new chicest neighbourhoods. The place responsible for originating of the phrase 'skid row' might not call to mind independently-owned boutiques and terraced cafes, but having swallowed the waterfront lines of False Creek North, the resulting amalgamation transformed the area into an elegant, stylish hotspot with a view. Its youthful vibe owes to the many young families and young professionals who live there, bolstering nightlife and restaurant variety along its cobbled streets. It is the flagship neighbourhood for modern revitalization, and the It-Spot for boutique hotels and modish eats.
