To set the record straight, they are not open 24/7 as their name suggests and as their large neon sign indicates. There is a small sign on the door that says they are open from 11 a.m. to 4 a.m.
The restaurant is small and the decor kind of old. It wasn't very clean either on my last visit. Service was polite and pretty efficient. I have no complaints about that. But I found the pineapple fried rice I ordered very salty, and mediocre at best. I have had much better pineapple fried rice elsewhere.
Food: Had a salad roll: the sauce that it came with was a bit too sweet for me. Also had some of the lemongrass chicken soup, which was way too salty, couldn't handle more than 2 spoonfuls.
Service: Waited a while for waitress to bring us menu and water. Food came out a bit on the slow side.
Value: The salad roll portion was bigger than expected, judging by the price. Other things on the menu were reasonable priced.
Ambiance: Kind of cheesy with the neon lights out front. Tabletops a little sticky. W/C was clean though.
Hands down the best pad thai in the city (and I've had tons of them). Can't beat the price or the hours of operation. Try the yellow coconut chicken curry and some of their coconut rice; crazy delicious!
Don't listen to the naysayers, this place has never let me down. Massive portions as well.
We actually found this place from the Entertainment Book. This little Thai restaurant is nestled in a corner of a small strip mall at Broadway and Oak. After paying for our parking, we went right in. As soon as we were seated, we were immediately reimbursed for our parking. The décor inside was not particularly impressive. The prices on the big menu seem quite reasonable, especially when compared to other Thai restaurants. I ordered a Red Curry with pork Bento box. The order came pretty quickly, first with a small bowl of hot and sour soup. It was a bit on the salty side. The Red curry port Bento box came with 2 Thai spring rolls and salad. Everything seemed to be rather mediocre, except the red curry pork was very tasty. Well, what can I expect with the price I paid? It is not the greatest Thai food, but it is good enough, especially considering the service, the price and the different fusion food selections on the menu.
I love thai food! tho this one.. i just like.
Their food is alright. I came here twice with my girlfriend and both times i got pad thai and she ordered some rice dish. I like their portions, not too much and not too little.
Service: servers are very friendly and very talkative too.
Value: yes yes
will return if i'm around
I tried this place once. The food was pretty good, the location is not bad either. I ordered the pad thai and curry with some rice. I was served maybe 20 minutes after I ordered, which isn't too bad. The pricing is about average for thai restaurants, and the menu selection is pretty good. I really wouldn't mind coming back to this place if i'm in the area.
I've been going here every 1-2 weeks for most of the past year, as the food is consistently delicious, the lady is nice, the service is quick, and it's easy to keep the bill to $10/person including tip.
Ambiance -- well, it's a pretty simple place. There are decorations and SE-Asian instrumental music.
I've been to 24/7 Thai several times and I've never had bad food and bad service. I didn't expect much but all in all it was an ok experience. I really like their Thick Red Curry. I love the spicy kick it has and the richness of the sauce. I like their spicy basil stiry fry. Their fried rice was spicy and full of flavour as well although a bit oily. I was a bit disappointed in their pad thai because the last time I had ti it was a bit too tart as comapred to the first time I had it a few months ago, it had the right blend of salty, sweet, tart and spicy.
Would I go back? Sure! It's better than the Thai restuarant I went to in Burnaby where the curry I had was watery and tasteless.
I really like the fact that this place is open late.
