I've always thought it interesting to see a restaurant revamped with the same management. As one of their original customers with my gfs I expected better service. Maybe he forgot as he does seem to be on the losing side of 50's maybe. The owner has a quaff of arrogance although he feigns interests like you're his "best customer" when in reality you're just another number on the cash register. How unfortunate.
Ordered a chicken pad thai I believe. In reality it tasted like soy sauce with MSG. As a Caucasian this is what I would make at home...lolz!
Price: $10 for a bowl of noodles!!! Overvalued. Premium prices for "unorganic" produce that my gfs and I can cook and literally make ourselves.
Portion: For a petite girl it would suffice. However for anyone else it's the equivalent of a happy meal. Maybe they should include a cute toy with their little bowls.
Customer Service: As I said I expected better service rather than getting rushed out.
Owner was sucking up to every customer when it was Jonkers Street now you lost my business FOREVER for your lack of customer service, and sincerity. Just another short sided merchant in a long list of establishments that will come in and go.
If you want authentic Thai food go to Simply Thai across the street in the heart of Yaletown or Urban Thai. Fantastic service and with $10 you get much for what you pay for.

Been wanting to write some reviews of my local favorite spots during the summer time. As I strolled around English Bay I could smell the Ocean breeze mixed with spices and herbs from all the various restaurants in the vicinity. One thing that caught my attention was the smell of schwarma. After following my nose I discovered three different pita/mediterranean restaurants. When in doubt pick the ones that catches my eye or has the most customers. So I decided to try out Mediterranean Grill. Even though the line-ups were fairly long it didn't take long before they took my order.
It's set up like a cafe with tv screens and has a cute lil bar set up. I decided to order a chicken pita sandwich with lentil soup. The sandwich ($6.50) was delicious, the lentil soup ($3) could have been pre-made, but it was decent nothing out of the ordinary. Enjoyed the patio seating they had while gazing out into the Bay.
Overall pleasant experience, good quality food at affordable prices, and best of all the location!
