We have lived in Port Coquitlam for 15 years and we have eaten at almost every restaurant in Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam. We first tried Sang Thai about 6 months ago and were quite impressed with the higher end decor (for a Port Coquitlam restaurant) and we found the food was delicious and the lunch specials were a good bargain at around $8 or $9. The dinner menu was quite extensive and the food was also very good but the prices for dinner and quantity of food were not nearly as good a bargain as for the lunch specials so we generally only went for lunch. Over the past 6 months we had lunch at Sang Thai about 6 or 7 times and always came away impressed with the quality of food and the prices.
We were in a pinch 2 weeks ago and ordered take out dinner from Sang Thai, we ordered the Pad Thai, Green Curry, and 2 salad rolls. The quantity of food was much larger now in the take out containers and the food was just as delicious as when when we first ordered 6 months ago but we still found it a little bit expensive. On the way out 2 weeks ago we picked up their new special combo menu and noted that they have for eat in, take out, or delivery a choice of about 30 items where you can choose 3 items for $20 (or 4 items for $26). We tried it tonight and ordered for take out the chicken chow mein ( I know it is not Thai but it was still excellent), chicken red curry, and tofu with chilli garlic sauce and beef. For the chow mein they even put the sauce, meat, and vegetables in a container separate from the fried noodles so the fried noodles would be crispy when we got home. We got home and opened it up and for $20 they give you very big portions and the food was fresh and delicious! My wife and I commented that for what we got tonight for $20 we could probably barely buy all the ingredients for $20, never mind making it, and never mind having it taste delicious. Sang Thai with their new special combo menu is a screaming bargain!!

We went on a cold Saturday night and had the 6 course seafood tasting menu for 2 for $68. We really enjoyed every seafood course but we LOVED the Curry Mussels, Szechuan Chilli Prawns, and the Chocolate dessert and the Apple Strudel with ice cream. For $68 we were both stuffed and had a wide variety of beautifully presented,tasty, and very fresh seafood.
We first tried this restaurant 2 years ago and had the 6 course non seafood tasting menu and also found the food amazing 2 years ago. Both times we have been there the restaurant was pretty quiet and not very busy...we just hope they stick around because we love their food and find it different from most of the other common fare on Marine Drive in White Rock.
