It's much harder to come to this bar now that I have moved to Port Moody ie: the drinking and driving laws, cabs being so expensive, etc. but I realized that after going to a few bars closer that I miss the feeling of what its like being at a great pub. The food is great and has a lot to choose from, sometimes a little too much to choose from, as it is a very overwhelming menu.. The draft beer list is very extensive and they still have live music every Friday and Saturday night. I realized that to take my car there and get a SafeRide home is well worth the $25 bucks because I don't feel ripped off at the John B and I feel very safe, They have huge portions for food, the waitresses look fantastic, and the atmosphere is busy and hopping. I read a few reviews about the place looking worn down, and I don't disagree there could be some small renovations, but the place is clean and well run and has aged really well in my opinion... Has anyone gone to the Frog and Nightgown of late? That to me is a place that warrants being called rundown. Trust me, and make the voyage if you haven't been there in awhile.... you'll be pleasantly surprised!

I went to Thailand a few years ago, and missed the amazing food there. In Vancouver, we get decent thai food for sure, we are fortunate that way. Someone told me that they went here with a Groupon, and said how wonderful the food was. I have driven by that location over and over without realizing this place existed. I went, and although the place is very small, and cramped, the food is the best in Vancouver. If you like spice even the medium is very spicy. If you don't like spice, ask for mild for sure. The food is sooo tasty. The prices are a little high but the quality makes up for it. They have received a number of great reviews from newspapers every year. The dishes are average for size but trust me, you can't get a better curry in the City than here.
