An hour wait for mediocre take out when told it was 10 to 15 min!
By redfish of Richmond (23 Reviews)
Submitted Tuesday, September 11, 2012 - 9:09am [Take-out]

Have ordered from this place before. Last night was told it would be rfeady in 10 to 15 min. When my daughter arrived to pick the food on her way home from work she had to wait another 40 MINUTES so it was an hour after I placed the order. Apparently only 2 people working, but then give a reasaonable estimate of time!!. Also the Panang curry was much blander than usual, the papaya salad way too sour and the mixed vegies so so.

No offer of anything to compensate for the ridiculous wait.

Will NOT be recommending this place to anyone anymore.

Good food regardless of authenticity

This place has good tasting food regardless of whether or not it is authentic Thai. The green chicken curry had a good amount of spice/kick to it. It was creamy and a generous amount of peppers and chicken was included. The set dinner is a good value with salad, a spring roll, a chicken skewer, green curry, and coconut rice (if I recall correctly). The decor is bland but the place is clean and presentable. Would recommend and go again.

Not authentic and not good

Ordered pad thai, curry and Thai fried rice. Everything was terrible. The curry was decent at best.

That being said, their lunch specials were very very cheap. So if you want cheap food and thai food then this may interest you.

But if you want good authentic thai food then this is not where you want to go.

Terrible Faux Thai!
By gdr of Richmond (8 Reviews)

Went to this restaurant on Saturday and the food was subpar to be generous. I ordered two dishes the Thai hot and sour soup chicken noodles and the Thai beef salad. The soup which I presume to be Tom Yum soup was bland and tasted like dilute soup from cubes that you can buy from super markets. The chicken was not marinated and was completely bland as well. The beef salad which I thought would be better was awful from start to finish. The beef was tenderized beef slices that appeared to be deep fried; authentic ones should use grilled steak. The rest of the salad consists of bell peppers, tomatoes, and lots of onions. Over half the salad was only onions! The sauce was the worst part as it was basically Vietnamese spring roll sauce. Authentic Thai salad should consist of a lime juice, chili, garlic, and fish sauce base. Overall I would not come back to this restaurant. At twenty dollars for two dishes it was not worth it for quality that is lower than food court quality. I did not try their curry but do not want to take the risk.

Overall....blah.

I just was not impressed. I didn't hate the place, the waiters were fine and the food didn't take long to arrive, but I just wasn't impressed. I found it to be quite over priced for the portions served, the food was bland and not pretty. Ambiance was also bland. I will not return, with all the restarants that are available to try...why bother?

Nice to have another Thai restaurant in Richmond.

My daughter and I popped in on the recommendation of a friend at 8:30 on a Thursday evening. The restaurant itself is strikingly clean and new in appearance if not just a bit stark. There were no other customers in the restaurant but several customers picked up orders while we were there. Service was excellent and very fast. The food was fresh, flavourful and attractively served. I had the chicken green curry dinner combo ($12.95). It came with a spring roll with dipping sauce, a skewer of satay chicken with peanut sauce, a sizeable portion of steamed rice and a bowl of fragrant green curry chicken. The curry (rated 2 chilis) had a generous amount of chicken, lovely crisp pepper strips and eggplant in a delicious spicy/sweet sauce. Also included with the combo was an iceberg lettuce salad with tomato and sliced red onion which, while quite tasty, was a bit over-dressed. (I'll ask for the dressing on the side next time.) I sampled my daughter's chicken with ginger and onion - very tasty as well. Everything was delicious and fresh.
The menu is quite extensive considering the size of the restaurant and we are looking forward to a return visit!

Good, fast and friendly

Decided to try Thai Kitchen after it was recommended to us. We had 7 in our group and were seated right away (5:30pm). It was clean and bright despite the strip mall location. While not very busy in the dining room the take out was flying out of there. Once we got our orders we knew why. All but one of us had a combination dinner- this includes a generous portion of one item off the menu plus spring roll, salad, 1 skewer of chicken satay, dipping sauce and some amazing coconut rice. All for only $12.95. I had the chicken cashew- it was fresh and tasty with just the right amount of heat. Others tried the various curries, and another tried the chicken and seasonal veggies. We all cleaned our plates- even the most picky of us.

They have lunch specials running daily till 4:45- next time I will drop in at lunch and try the green curry and noodles!

Overpriced with small portions of food and poor service
By thaifoodie of Surrey , B.C. (1 Review)

We just decided to try out the food the first time there since we were in the neighborhood. The dishes were overpriced with little portions of food. When we got there, there was no other customers there. The second dish came so long after the first one was served. The cook should have better coordination with the timing of dishes to be served so that customers do not have to wait so long in between the dishes.

When the dishes arrived, we were not impressed with the taste and the portion at all. It was not authentic at all and seems the owners are Chinese to me. The portion was too small for the price. The waiter did not bother to refill water either once served. We will not go back there ever :(
