A Thai restaurant with lunch specials starting from $5.95.
Went to Days for late lunch and they have specials until 5pm. You can get your main dish with rice and spring roll. The food was very tasty. This is a hole in wall so don't expect much here. The booths and table are very 70's look. The service was ok. There was only one other table occupied. The food came very quickly and it was very tasty. I will go back and the price is right for this place. Had the chicken with cashews and basil beef. Their curries looked good but will try this next time.
Thai restaurant run by Chinese people, sigh. It’s a very clean, simple restaurant. The food that comes out is acceptable, some better than others. I think the red curry and hot and sour soup are decent. It’s open until 10 so that’s good for take-out, and the prices are good.
I love this little Thai place! The food is really good, I usually order the Panang Red Curry or Cashew Chicken. They have lunch and dinner combos. They come with coconut rice, salad, and a spring roll. The salad is pretty spicy though. I love the curries here, I have also tried the basil fried rice, pretty good.
The service here is pretty good, not over the top. Your water is refilled all the time, they don't try to up-sell anything.
The value for your money is awesome. The lunch combos are around $6-8 and the dinner combos are around $12 and you get everything (minus the drink)
The ambiance is a little dry, they have tiled floors and booths along the side, some pictures along the wall. But over all this place is perfect. The food is great the service is good and you can order takeout.
this place is awesome. i had the green curry with chicken–i can honestly say that this was the best green curry that i've ever had! the eggplant was cooked perfectly.
the food is well portioned; my friend and i had enough left over to bring home to enjoy.
be sure to check out the men's washroom poster, you'll be very amused.
the only thing that bothers me is the questionable seating–blue leather seats with red patterned backing... not my style. they're comfortable, but their looks do not live up to the quality of the food and service here. then again-- i'm a visual designer, so i'm pretty critical about that. the awesome artwork on the walls make up for it though.
I spend half of the year in Osaka and I eat in a lot of restaurants in Vancouver as well as Japan, and I can truly say that James' little hole in the wall Thai food restaurant on Canada Way is excellent value and always a good dining experience. I live too far away for delivery, so I can't comment on that, but there is always room in the place when I go after 7 PM for dining in. My son loves the chicken and beef satay with peanut sauce, and my daughter is crazy about the lettuce wrap dish that is so good. My wife and I usually share 3 or 4 curry dishes and a stir fry between us. We never finish everything, but that's OK, we love left-overs! Give it a try, you'll like it.
We have been looking for a "good enough" Thai restaurant nearby for some time. For some reason I had passed by Days Thai - which is too bad, because we liked it and it has been here for quite awhile!
I like: 1) menu is available online. 2) They take cards for payment... that makes it much more likely that I will order again on impulse. 3) Home delivery! What a treat! 4) The menu is adequate and clearly written. 5) Flexibility in regards to vegetarian, and spice preferences. 6) The prices are a touch on the high side, IMO, but okay. Looking back at other reviews I realize that their prices have increased recently. The food was “good enough Thai” which had been my criteria. We ordered our favorites, and in the future will try other dishes.
The ginger beef was tasty, and I enjoyed its presentation on crisp noodles. I thought it needed more. As often prepared, ginger beef is more a confection or appetizer. This dish, while tasty, was a good example of that. I would like more freshness in a dish - maybe some tasty sauce with bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, ginger slices and/or a veggie under those noodles or maybe chopped cilantro and ginger on top of the beef. We especially liked the curry, and sweet/sour chicken. The Pad Thai was disappointingly ordinary. Could have used more ingredients such as tofu and shreds of meat and some fresh touches such as cilantro, lime wedge or ?. Good pad Thai is a wonderful thing, and I think that many people judge a Thai restaurant on their Pad Thai. It has seemed to me that many restaurants take that dish far too lightly and go for the simplest version.
Basically, my suggested improvements have to do with what I perceived to be a lack of fresh items such as chopped basil, cilantro, ground peanuts, lime wedges etc. That sort of freshness elevates a dish such as Pad Thai to a new level. One thing I like best about Thai food is the freshness of the ingredients. For me, that draws the line between so-so and good Thai food. This was good Thai food and was freshly prepared, and I think it could be even better with a little attention to detail.
The "Mediocre" service had to do with the carelessness of the order taker in giving the driver a wrong address - this, even after I had carefully and slowly repeated the address when I placed the order. The result was a harried (but friendly), late driver who was worried because his next order was also late. (Not to mention very hungry customers who had watched every car drive by in anticipation and disappointment.) On my original review, I had misunderstood part of the transaction issue. We understood that the driver could not take the time to process our payment due to his lateness, and then took a long time to get back to us for payment. The fact is that their data system was down and it took a couple of hours for them to be able to process payment. I do not know if the misunderstanding was language related, or just that the driver and staff were rushing to do their best in a situation of technical breakdown. We are planning our next visit to be a dine in one. We look forward to meeting the staff and owner and to exploring the menu.
My wife and I go here occasionally and we've always been pleased with the food. As others have commented, the interior is nothing special, but it's not a big deal. The food has always been tasty and my wife and I can get an appetizer, two dishes, rice, and two drinks for around $30. A good value. What has always impressed me is how FAST my food arrives - usually not more than 5 - 8 minutes. I was a little disappointed to find out the chef was Chinese and not Thai, but I won't complain. Probably the main thing I don't like is the location. It's in a small ugly strip mall that has tight parking. Beyond this, the restaurant is definitely recommended for the food.
Unlike some of the other reviews for this place, I was satisfied with the value and quality of the $7. luncheon specials (after three visits) which go till 5pm! I had the yellow curry with chicken and found the amount of chicken breast sufficient and the flavourful sauce thick enough to coat the rice. Service by a young lady is a bit indifferent and so is the decor but the cook/owner is personable and was pleased to talk with a customer. i recommend this as a lunch spot as I think for dinner one would want a bit more Thai atmosphere via the decor and service. Funny location too ( in a little strip mall) but it is right next to the !06 bus stop which makes it convenient.
I love Thai/Malaysian food and have gone to many thai restaurants in Burnaby and DT Vancouver. I gave Days Thai a 1st try after reading all the reviews here and elsewhere for a home delivery. It was nice of them to willing to deliver to my house since I live more than 5KM in distance from the restaurant for a small fee. However.. the food wasn't so great. I was very disappointed in the PAD THAI. I did consider below reviewer's comment on how mediocre their Pad Thai is yet I gave it a try. Where are the shrimp tofu egg and bean sprouts ?? There was so much noodle..seriously too much and barely any toppings. The sauce tasted like..ketchup and very bland. Prawns with Vegetables had no "prawns" but rather "shrimps" and weren't many in it. It also lacked the spice. Although the curry was pretty decent. A little bit watery for me but nonetheless good with.. I think they used chicken breast. I probably won't be ordering from here again and stick with DT restaurants. but if anyone of you like thai curries, you should give it a try. At least the guy over the phone was nice.
I am a regular at this hole in the wall thai restaurant that is on the corner of Canada Way and Edmonds. In fact, my whole office makes a trip here for lunch at least once a week for their ridiculously cheap lunch specials. My favorite dish is the Panang Curry. My office mate's favorite order is the green curry with a Thai Iced Tea. We are there so often that the waitress knows her order and just asks if she wants the regular. The food is always hot and tasty. The service is quick and friendly and the value can not be beat. The lunch special includes the dish, the rice and an egg roll for 6.95! Another bonus is the take out service which includes a 10% discount for pick up! The seats are mostly booth style which is nice. There is fun mirror art on the wall, but other than that, it si pretty basic in terms of decor. This place is a solid Thai restaurant that is my favorite in the lower mainland. The other places better step it up if they want to compete for my business.
I have eaten here a few times. The red curry and coconut chicken is definitely good. Some of the other dishes I've tried were not good such as beef with garlic sauce. The sauce tasted like vinegar mostly. It definitely didnt taste like garlic. Sometimes the beef is tough. Spring rolls are pretty good. Hot and sour soup was good. Stick with the chicken and you should be OK. Lunch specials are the best deal.
i love thai food and this place is YUMMY. if you're going for ambiance, this is not the place....it's a mom and pop place but the food is excellent and consistent. the prices are good and if you enjoy a drink with your meal, alcoholic drinks are very reasonable......i've had their red and green curry (delicious) and some prawn dishes (yummy). their pad thai isn't the best i've had, but decent.....actually, it tastes really good the next day.
i live nearby and hate cooking so i go here frequently
it is a good idea to ask for the food salt and msg free otherwise that's all you'll taste, food is great for the price and some of them have very large servings which is excellent, service is better than average and the place seems very well run and clean
I have dined-in, taken-out, and ordered delivery from this restaurant and I can say they have some of the best Thai curry I have eaten.
I have tried other dishes on the menu and they are hit and miss. The chicken satay skewers are good but I found the pork with garlic sauce to be overly salty and other dishes to be bland.
The restaurant is very clean though sparsely decorated and had tables even a large family to eat at one table.
The staff on location are friendly enough and the delivery staff are very nice not to mention the price is very reasonable.
Overall if you are craving a great Thai curry you can not go wrong with Days Thai.
I have eaten at two other Thai restaurants, one in Pitt Meadows and one off Hastings in North Bby, and they were both A LOT better than the food I bought from this restaurant tonite. I ordered the pad thai chicken, hot n sour soup (coconut) and spring rolls. There was very little taste to the pad thai, very little sauce, the noodles were too thick, the tofu tasted awful, and they were not overly generous with the nuts or sprouts. The hot n sour soup was decent. The spring rolls were cooked in oil that was not fresh.
