Don't go Here If You Don't Want To Run Into Friends
By Drew_andrew of Vancouver Suburb (3 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, April 2, 2011 - 6:48am [Dine in]

The place is packed. It was jam packed yesterday. Apparently, they get all the local lunch crowd. I was having a quick lunch with the lady I am seeing near her work. They are that busy. Go early if your girlfriend wants asian food! I had the red chicken curry and the most odd chicken nugget-type things. (apologies for not remember the name). Those nuggets were tender, juicy, savoury little pillows of deep fried weirdness. The curry was ok as well, maybe not perfectly balanced between the salty, sweet, sour and spicy intensity.
We werent out of there as fast as we wanted because we had the afternoon to ourselves.

good solid thai and fast service to get us moving

My friend had pad thai noodles (he said it was so-so) but I can only say positive things about my dish (Thai spicy noodles with chicken). I devoured it within minutes. This restaurant and me are regular dates. It was crazy-busy that day (Friday dinner lunch) but I was amazed at how fast and efficient the service was because I get to see my man not often enough. I cannot wait to come back and try some other dishes with my man.

Great First Visit
By Baxter3 of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, February 11, 2009 - 9:00pm [Dine in]

Was around the area as saw someone off at the airport in the morning. Decided since I was in town to meet up with some friends who work in Richmond. They recommended Thai House but it was my first visit. We all had their lunch special and it came with rice, spring roll and soup. The red curry was awesome though the chicken cashews I had off my friend's plate was pretty good too. Glad I went as now anytime I'm in Richmond, I will definitely go back as for $7.50, it's really good food and a proper lunch unlike drive through. Oh yah, best of all, the waiter said there are other restaurant locations in Vancouver where I work!

Our first visit to the Thai House in Richmond was a pleasant surprise. Is this the best Thai food I've ever had? Maybe not, but it was really quite good, with mostly nice flavour blending. Only one disappointment: the rather bland red curry that came in the coconut shell needed more intense flavours. Since there were four of us; we ordered the dinner for four, stuffed ourselves and there was still food left over! The bill, with a couple of extras, was still under $100! The place was full but our server made us feel as if we were the only ones there. He was cheerful and eager to please, even offering a substitution when my husband said he wasn't keen on ostrich skewers (which the rest of us wanted). Our drinks were regularly replenished. The food came out fast (at times, a little too fast) and hot. Standouts: excellent satay sauce and the seafood soup. Huge portions, good value, tasty food, excellent service, central location.

Out-Of-Town Guests Impressed

A best kept secret perhaps but dropped in at the Thai House in Richmond after picking up some friends who flew in. They wanted some good Asian cuisine so came across the place as we usually go to the one in Kits. Turns out the food and service is just as good. Our friends enjoyed the spicy green beans, seafood curry and ostrich curry the best. We also had Tom Yum soup which was very good and ended off the meal with the house favourite of fried bananas and mango ice cream. Yum! Our friends were very impressed and said it was too bad that there weren't Thai Houses where they live as we told them there were lots of locations around town. Sometimes, I think we take for granted places we go to from time to time and don't realize how good they are until someone reminds us. Overall, it was a really good meal to share among old friends.

Review Panned Out
By rebeccadiner of Richmond (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, October 13, 2008 - 9:31pm [Dine in]

I read in the Province last week about the Thai House having a great lunch special but had to check it out for myself. I always lived in Richmond, but never dropped in for their lunch as there's tons of Asian fast fiid restaurants to choose from already. Must have been one of those best kept secrets until now as my bf and I had a really good meal, and best of all, the food was good and more than affordable!!! These two factors don't always go hand in hand. Had the beef penag style curry they recommended and believe me, this was really good curry, and we've had our share dining out. He had red curry with lots of veggies and meat, and it didn't disappoint at all. Both dishes came with rice, soup and a spring roll all for only $7.50 each, much to our surprise as the food was really good. Normally when you hear about good places, sometimes the review doesn't pan out but in this case, we were totally impressed. No, the Thai House didn't reinvent the wheel but what they delivered was some really great tasting Thai food to fit our budget. Will definitely be back to try more of their items for lunch and din.

Impressive Thai Intro
By jojoeatsout of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Saturday, October 4, 2008 - 12:20am [Dine in]

My hubby and I never tried Thai food before. Hard to believe, I know, but for Asian food, we always, always go out for Chinese and sometimes Japanese. Don't know why, really... A couple friends recommended the Thai House in Vancouver as they've been around for decades. We came across their Richmond location by chance when we we were around the area. Had a really decent and unbelievable lunch at only $8! The chicken curry was really creamy with amazing fresh spices. We love eggplant and tried it out and loved how they cooked it. Best of all, you also get with your meal a yummy egg roll, salad to go with your dish and rice. We’re impressed enough to try their dinner menu next month and go beyond the curry dishes. The server was kind enough to tell us that the Thai House also has a weekend “all you can eat” brunch buffet for $12.95 with lots more dishes to choose from. We’re now converts of Thai cuisine, and not looking back!

Craving For More Thai Curry
By RosaCritic of Surrey (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, September 22, 2008 - 8:44pm [Dine in]

A couple friends and I were in Richmond, and we wanted some good eats. Came across the Thai House Restaurant, and found parking easily so we were off to a good start. We've been to their downtown location years ago and it was pretty good. Turned out that the Richmond location didn't disappoint. Never tried something so weird and exotic as ostrich in red curry but my friends made me order it. Never knew I was missing out on something so good. Went away wanting more of it as had to share. Spicy beans were just right. Lettuce wrap was good. Didn't know until later from another friend, but they SELL packages of their awesome curry already premade. Gotta go back next time for sure to buy some.

I went here to eat dinner with my family to celebrate Mother's Day (which is tomorrow) and use up my sister's entertainment book coupon. When we entered, we were warmly greeted and seated by the servers there. The restaurant wasn't full, but it was considerably busy. The lighting was a bit dim, that was a slight problem for my parents; they had to squint to read the menu. We ordered the Gai Yang BBQ Chicken (half), the Mixed Veggies (with no meat) with oyster sauce, the Tiger Prawn Red Curry served in a pineapple, and an Ostrich Meat Yellow Curry. All the food was unexpectedly good. The veggies weren't much of a shock though, quite....average. But we had to order 2 non-spicy dishes because my sister can't really eat spicy foods. The chicken was REALLY good, it was really tender. The dishes were a good size for us, but my whole family has a comparatively small appetite, so 4 dishes would probably not be enough for other people. The servers were very pleasant the whole time, but they weren't all that attentive. But that was fine for us, we were in no hurry to go anywhere. I'm definitely coming back.

Exotiic Creations
By Foodfreak of Vancouver (3 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, September 24, 2007 - 1:12pm [Dine in]

I passed by this restaurant a million times before I finally worked up the courage to go in and try. This simple looking restaurant has to die for food inside. Restaurants come a dine a dozen in Richmond but to find an extrodinary restaurant is almost extinct in this area. I went in thinking it was just another Asian restaurant full of grease, msg and generic food but came out so happy and full it was almost magical. The service was even better than the food. There Horw Mok Maprao was so breautiful to look at, the flavor bursts into your mouth when eaten. They make the food as spicy or non spicy as you request. Not sure what to eat ask the wait staff and they will tell you exactly what your cravings are for the evening. Dessert is just as delicious as the food.

Overcooked mushy fried rice
By gloriasit of vancouver (37 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, July 29, 2007 - 4:55am [Dine in]

The girlfriends and I decided to have a dinner gathering here, and we each ordered an item. I really enjoyed their coconut curry chicken in the coconut bowl. It wasn't too spicy considering the menu warned you it was 3 chillies worth. The pad thai was at par. If you like al dente pasta, the noodles there are really "chewy". What I thought was a downfall was the fried rice we ordered. I personally don't really like overcooked soft rice, and possibly because of the sauce it soften the rice even more. I'm not a big fan of raisins as well so that wasn't a favorite of the night for me.
We brought 2 entertainment coupons in for dinner and that saved us $23. Our bill came up to $40 tip incld that night.
A possible return!

Truly The Best Keeps Getting Better
By Smarties of vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Thursday, March 29, 2007 - 12:28am [Dine in]

For the past several years we've been seeing more and more Thai restaurants opening up left right and center. Lots of imitations that have barely survived or still floating around but nothing beats the original. We've tried many other places but none of them seem to cut it. Thai House has always been a favourite of ours since the 1990's. Not sure but they might have even been one of the first Thai restaurants to open in Vancouver. Their menu has changed for the better with lots of new menu items to celebrate their 20th year anniversary . Kudoes to them for always offering the best in service and food. The staff are always attentive and courteous.

Giving Thai House a bad reputation!
By agileangel of Vancouver (2 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, November 27, 2006 - 4:05pm [Dine in]

I been to this location twice & was quite disappointed. I didn't want to come here the second time but our out-of-town guests were staying in richmond. We had out 8 people & it took them 15 minutes to set up, even though the restaurant was half full. The manager,who served us at the place had the biggest frown on this face the whole time, it doesn't hurt to smile! When we asked for chopsticks, he gave us a disgruntled look. Half of the food tasted good. The Pad Thai was too sour to eat, & I could taste chunks of salt in it. I don't recommend this location at all!

My wife, son, brother in law, and myself had an excellent evening at the Thai House. I have never had Thai food before and I must say Thai is a wonderful cuisine. We had ordered in as well and the food was equally good. Some of the dishes may be a bit spicy but that is perhaps how Thai cuisine is prepared. Would love to visit Thai House again.

Man, the food was so salty. Worst Thai food I've ever had. There is no good Thai food in Vancouver. Definitely not worth the $13-15 per dish. With their quality it should be $7 per dish instead. Gordan Ramsey would shut down the kitchen if there was ever food like this in his restaurant. They try to be upscale by changing your plates like in a fancy restaurant, but their food just says it all.

Great service and we got a free umbrella.

We were craving Thai food and were really hungry, so instead of carryout we decided to go and eat at the restaurant instead, boy was that a bad choice!! The food is good i have to admit, i love their Pad Thai and Red Curry. The spring rolls are crispy and delicious, but the service is poor. We had to wait for 20 minutes just for someone to take our order. After we had our appetizers. it was an incredible one hour wait for our main course!! Maybe it was a bad day!! Would surely give it a go once more for their spicy, warming yummy food.. Do try Thai House.

Unbeatable Lunch - Gotta Try It!
By JasperW of Richmond (1 Review)
Submitted Wednesday, November 12, 2008 - 7:05pm [Dine in]

We couldn’t get parking at Yaohan Centre where we normally eat casual ‘cheap and cheerful’ Chinese food in their large Asian food fair. We go in a huge group for Friday lunches from our office so we were in a jam. We drove around and decided to check out the Thai House’s lunch special which we heard was pretty good. A couple of us have been there for dinner but it was a while ago and remember liking it. Man, have we missing out big time! Their lunch special was amazing, and believe me, we as a group all have different tastes to satisfy. You get a lot of choices which surprised us as you can get their famous curries but there’s also other a lot of other dishes. Too many to remember but we couldn’t believe it especially since lunch specials are usually very limited. The meal came with soup, a bowl of rice and a spring roll. Overall, we were very impressed by the food, and the service was prompt even for a big group of us which we needed as our time is limited. We vowed to forgo the mass produced, greasy and fried items we’ve been subjecting ourselves too for years. The Thai House food left us full but not in a good way as it was fresh, made for us on the spot and overall much healthier. Oh yah, forgot, it was unbelievable because the price came to only $7.50 for each meal. Makes you think twice why we never thought about going there before. We’re a big fan now and will be back for sure every week.
