I came here for a friends birthday, and was definatly disappointed, to begin with we were sat away from the rest of the room near the door which was just riducolous because you would think a restaurant would want to fill up the front first, I noticed there set up was definatly lacking, customers were way too spread out within the restaurant which ruined the atmospehere. My group ended up asking if we could move into the main dining area, however our server just seemed cold, not saying yes or no but rather took our plates and moved us over.
Food was alright, not too much better than thai take out. All and all for a saturday night there was about 5 tables in the restaurant from the time we got there at 7 until we left around 8:30-9pm. Definatly not a happenin' place nor a well run one either our server whom we could see from our table, was picking up plates from the kitchen and seemed constantly confused about where the orders were going and repeatedly took dishes out to the floor, looked around timidly, than ran into the back to double check where she was going
I would'nt go back unless they lowered there prices, a way better option for couples/groups looking for excellent well priced thai would be Krua Thai on Lonsdale in North Vancouver

After hearing mixed reviews from friends and from dinehere.ca, I decided to see for myself what the fuss or lack of fuss was about. Let me tell you I was very suprised, our reservation was on a busy saturday and although I can definatly assure you the restaurant is not the kinda of place you would go if your looking for something along the lines of quiet and snooty Don Francescos or Cin Cin's this place was incredibly alive not to mention well functioning, the other guests in the restaurants were incredibly mixed, young and old, high rollers and everyday types blending in quite nicely.
Definatly would not rate this place as poseur or overly trendy, just stylish and popular .The service was on time and not too intrusive and everyone working seemed to be working very well as a team waiters and clean up staff, overall I would defiantly recommened this for anyone looking for an actually full vancouver joint especially during the downturn
