Talay Thai Restaurant8369 Granville Street, Vancouver
Lucky Find!
Submitted Wednesday, September 1, 2010 - 1:36am [Dine in]

I have lived in Marpole for about a year, and probably would have never found this place except that a friend of mine wanted to go for Thai food for lunch one day. Having found it on Google maps, we went in, and rekindled my love affair with Thai food.
Talay Thai is the little restaurant that packs a giant punch. I've eaten at a few other Thai restaurants, but they unfortunately skimp on the authentic ingredients in many of their dishes. Not so at Talay. Each dish is lovingly and simply prepared using fresh ingredients and local(for Thailand anyways) flavors. I would Highly recommend the Pad Thai or the #43 fried rice dish(it includes dried shrimp, pineapple, Chinese sausage, and your choice of chicken, beef, pork, or seafood). All the portions are just about perfect for eating yourself, or passing around the table and sharing with friends. I would highly recommend the lunch specials. You have a choice of about ten different dishes that include a spring roll to start. You can't beat it for about $8-$11 each. If you are having seafood ask for their special chili sauce. Have it with fish or shrimp, it's a match made in heaven.
The servers at this restaurant are all very helpful and accommodating. They have a great knowledge of the menu and go so far as to make suggestions based on your taste and preferences. I think I have yet to finish a glass of water, as they come by and fill it before I even make it half way. Everyone is very friendly, so it almost feels like your going over to a friends house to eat, rather than to a restaurant.
All in all, if you want a genuine and friendly dining experience, paired with some truly dynamite food, look no further than 8369 Granville. Tell them Chris sent you.
