Good but Pricey
By staustell64 of PoCo (3 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, August 30, 2008 - 7:21pm [Dine in]

My wife and I love good Thai food and we were happy to be referred to this new place and hopefully they will last.

The quality of the food is very good and probably some of the best Thai I have had.

The problem as I see it is that they are in a terrible location and if you are going to rely strictly on referral business, you need a lot of referrals to make a go of it.

Despite the fact that the food was good, I also found it to be a little pricey, especially on a back road in PoCo. Oh yeh, they didnt have their liquor license when we visited.

Give them a try, so that they have a fighting chance.

Give it a try

Too spicy
By dianalee of Vancouver (10 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 3:06pm [Dine in]

This place is not your typical fast food Asian restaurant. All the food is made right there, which is a healthy sign. I usually am a sucker for spicy food, but the food here is waaaaay too spicy! I ordered a pad thai and red curry at 'medium' thinking it was going to be spicy enough for me, but not too spicy. Boy was I wrong! It was waaay too hot! I was sweating and reaching for some water in no time, which was a little strange for me. I even asked the waiter whether my order had been mistaken or something and he said no.

Best Thai in town and it's right by my house!
By agentdenver of Coquitlam (10 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, January 4, 2009 - 11:39pm [Dine in]

What do you get when you have a personable service combine with some of the best cooking in town? That's All Thai'd Up. I've travelled to many cities around the world and tried many restaurants that claim to have the best Thai food. None of them can compare to All Thai'd Up.

Their service is friendly and personable. You'll feel more at home or at least a very special guest at your friend's house.

The surroundings weren't ideal considering the train tracks, auto body shops, and tire shops; however, they've did a very good job with the renovation. It has the feel of a very laid back coffee shop instead.

Highly recommend it and they may get their liquor license soon. With the possibility of live band and after hour menu, how can you resist? If you've never tried the place, you're really missing out.

Not bad but a bit spicy
By bobbyf of port moody (3 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, August 30, 2010 - 10:12am [Dine in]

I like my food spicy and I can handle very hot dishes but I have to say that they went overboard when we ate there, it was actually like they spilled extra chillies into our dish and served it anyway.

The food was not bad, we had the coconut green curry and the pad thai noodles with a side serving of steamed rice. Overall the dishes were ok, not the best thai food that I had, not the worst... other than the food being incredibly hot, the noodles were a bit mushy - my wife likes them that way but I'm not a huge fan.

The area is a bit dodgey but I thought it added to the atmosphere - however, given the neighborhood I was hoping for a cheaper meal - it was reasonably priced but I wouldn't say great value.

Worth a try - not the best - but good enough to return.

Good food, can get super-busy, location is a bit dodgy
By jt of Port Moody, BC (2 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, February 16, 2010 - 3:35pm [Dine in]

Overall the food is very flavourful. It's a really small place - maybe seating 20 max. If it's busy, that can be a problem. We waited almost 1.5 hours for our take away and we weren't the only ones waiting. At that time, there still 3 other orders ahead of us.

The guy at the front was doing his best by giving everyone free drinks and coming out with some spring rolls. But still, that was a long wait.

Price-wise, it's comparable to Little Thailand in Port Moody but still less than Chada Thai in Coquitlam.

Biggest concern is the location. It's set against car shops, mechanics and other businesses. At night, it doesn't look so safe so if you can park on Kingsway Ave., the better.

A Gem In The Hole-In-The-Wall
By cryptocow of Metro Vancouver (4 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, March 7, 2009 - 3:05am [Dine in]

Hole-in-the-Wall has over time come to be known as a hideout a gang escapes to elude a pursuing posse. When one passes the Kingsway, Port Coquitlam, location of ‘All Thai’d Up’, it can easily be missed, day or night. The largely industrial and railway area surrounding ‘All Thai’d Up’ would easily hide anyone who enters it. ‘All Thai’d Up’ is an unpolished gem you will find in this hole-in-the-wall.

My wife was looking for restaurants in the Tri-Cities area and happened upon ‘All Thai’d Up’ when looking at top ratings at ’dinehere.ca’. It seemed inconceivable that a worthy restaurant could be found in this area. Well the adage ‘beauty is only skin deep’, or in this case a lack of beauty, is appropriate.

I have enjoyed Thai cuisine for more than 15 years, both in Toronto and Vancouver. Yes, as some reviewers have noted, this is not your typical restaurant Thai cuisine. The same goes for the owners, their approach to Thai cuisine, and their surroundings.

The owners, husband host/manager/waiter/bus boy, wife cook and sometimes waitress, is a team started from a trek through Thailand 20 years ago. Mrs. ‘All Thai’d Up’ cooks from a tradition of fresh herbs, freshly made curries, and a method more commonly found in the home, most especially found in her Tom Yum’s and Tom Kha. I will be back for her Tom Yum Gai.

Any worthy Thai restaurant has a good Tom Yum, but it is its curries that determine its authenticity. Her Gaeng Dang (red curry with chicken) has made me a number one fan.

I came to love Thai cuisine while living in Toronto at a small whole in the wall on Dundas Street. It is still a hole in the wall, and doing very well. Often it is the small, hungry, and principled restaurateurs and chefs that deliver quality food and a comfortable atmosphere at great prices that in the end will create an enduring success. Location is irrelevant.

There are some interesting extras about ‘All Thai’d Up’ that make it unique. They host a salsa dancing group. They teach Thai cooking, free. They teach how to make herbal remedies, teas, juices, and healthy cosmetics. They have poetry sessions, Thai meditation, and more. ‘All Thai’d Up’ has soul to serve up with their curries.

Now, ‘All Thai’d Up’ has been operating for 6 months, and their freshman short-comings are evident, no where more evident than in their service delivery. That is not to say their service is bad, or that they are not seeking to ensure satisfied customers. Mrs. ‘All Thai’d Up’ took our order, but forgot to write down and make my wife’s order. When we asked where the dish was, our host owned up to their error, and rushed the dish through. It was great. They also did not charge us for the dish, and we did not have to ask for redress because of their error.

I would suggest that ‘All Thai’d Up’ needs a bit more resources to ensure they can deliver they tasty meals in a timely fashion. This was evident with our appetizer, Satay. The chicken is charcoal broiled which matches well with their freshly made peanut sauce. However, the skewers cooked too long and the chicken crossed into dry. I can tell that if could for the right amount of time, Satay would be standard on everyone’s orders.

We will be returning to ‘All Thai’d Up’, and I dare say we will order takeout as well. I would suggest that eating at ‘All Thai’d Up’ is better as you get your meal hot as it was intended. I would also suggest that you be patient and encouraging. This gem is worth our support, and an effort by ‘All Thai’d Up’ to improve service delivery.

Surprisingly good!
By inStyle of PoCo (1 Review)
Submitted Sunday, February 1, 2009 - 9:07pm [Dine in]

I'm not normally a fan of Thai food so when my wife dragged me into this restaurant I was fully prepared to dislike it. I was shocked to find the food excellent and I liked everything that either of us ordered. Thinking it might have been a fluke, I tried it again a few days later with different dishes - same result - delicious. The staff was courteous, the food was great, the ambiance was nice - the only negative is that we had to park half a block away. On the plus side that gave me an opportunity to walk off some of the extraordinary meal.

Not worth your time
By ffs of Port Coquitlam (7 Reviews)
Submitted Wednesday, January 14, 2009 - 8:23pm [Dine in]

Although the service was friendly, the wait for food was very, very long. We ordered the green curry amongst other things, and we ordered it spicey ...but I guess the order got messed up because it came out bland. There is no atmosphere. difficult parking. food it alright, but prices are average for what you get.

Amazing Lunch Menu!
By jorryn of Port Coquitlam (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, September 11, 2008 - 12:40pm [Dine in]

I live in the area so have stopped in on a few occasions now. I will agree with other reviewers that the dinner menu does seem a bit pricey, but the lunch value is unbeatable! For less than 10 bucks, you get soup, a spring roll, the main dish, and rice. I haven't been able to finish the entire meal yet! The food is delicious, and I have eaten at numerous Thai restaurants so I have a good basis for comparison. I am so happy to have an independently owned, ethnic restaurant in my neighbourhood. Definitely worth stopping in!
