Turned up here with some friends not realising the restaurant had changed ownership. It was previously O Thai. The decor has been changed to give more warth and some amazing Thai carvings adorn the walls. I totally agree with the previous review that the Massamm curry was outstanding and the owner recommended the Pumpkin & Pork curry. This did not disappoint either with enough kick to please my wife although I would have preferred a touch more spice. The waitress was very friendly and didn't mind the mess made by our 8 mth old baby! If you previouly liked O Thai, this in my opinion is better so worth visiting again. Ambience only a 3 only because it is still new and not too busy. I'm sure once people discover this little gem the atmosphere will improve.

East Van is now certainly starting to challenge Westside with quality restaurants. We were a party of 8 so ended up being seated in the coffee bar away from the hustle and bustle of the main restaurant which wasn't too bad except it was 25 mins after our booking time. I'm sure the ambience is much better in the main area. Despite the delayed start the waitresses were very attentive and polite. Between us there were thumbs up for the Onion soup, one of the best tasted in town so far, and the steak frites that were a la carte. And from the specials the grilled scallops starter and braised pork belly entree were outstanding. Oh, and you have to try the creme brulee. Not such a hit was the sausage and mash. Definitely will be returning to try some of the other dishes. Booking recommended.
