The dining room of this Thai House looks more worn out than the one in Richmond but the food tasted better. We did not know the buy one meal get one free meal deal when we dined there, no one in the restaurant reminded us either, therefore we did not get the deal. Anyway, we ordered satay, a veggie stir fry with shrimp & roast chicken. All were tasty & fresh but slightly on salty side. Service was quick & friendly. Ambiance was quiet & comfy. I would come back if I want a solid & good-value meal.
The food at Thai House is absolutely delicious--the best Thai food I've ever had in Vancouver. The service was prompt and friendly without being over-the-top. Overall, dining at Thai House is a completely pleasant experience: not only was I impressed with the restaurant's kind and effecient service and simple-yet-pretty atmosphere, but Orientals should be proud of this place after the string of dubious service and hygiene and the food was so to-die-for that I kept repeating, "This is so good! Oh my god, this is so good!" after practically every bite. The vibe is informal but still oddly sophisticated, and the prices are relatively inexpensive without making the restaurant seem "cheap." One of Vancouver's best-kept secrets? No more, thanks to dinehere.
Clipped out a Province writeup awhile back with the mystery taster, and decided to try out the Thai House downtown for lunch. Actually all my co-workers and I went for our usual weekly lunch get together. Been to the Thai House for dinner before but never knew they had such a great offering for lunch and what an amazing deal! We all had lots of menu items to choose from though a couple of us opted for their yummy delish curry and various spice levels and meat choices. They even accomodated our lone vegetarian in the group and were very cooperative. Good service and best of all great food at an unbelievable price. You get your lunch entree along with rice, spring roll, and soup for only $7.50. We've decided as a consensus to make the Thai House one of our weekly places to visit. This is one place you will want to check out if you haven't already. It's one of those secrets you don't know about unless you read about it or a friend tells you.
Okay, I never thought that Thai food would satisfy an aficionado of seafood like my friend Kurt but it did. Kurt loves, actually adores and can’t get enough of the fresh variety of seafood available to him in Vancouver so you can imagine his surprise when I dragged him reluctantly to the Thai House and we only ordered from their seafood menu. I've been to their Richmond location several times and always liked their curries so this was going to be new for me too. The house special fried Rock Cod was a huge hit as it was fresh, fried to perfection and crispy and not oily either. It was topped off with an amazing peanut sauce. The tiger prawn curry also impressed Kurt, and there were ample enough prawns to his liking though we both agreed there would never be enough when it’s that good. Both dishes went well with the coconut rice. Non-seafood related, we deviated from our plan and had an exotic and daring try at their ostrich lettuce wrap, which was a surprise hit – very lean and healthy we’re told. We definitely went away thinking “outside of the box”, and in doing so, had a great meal we wouldn’t have tried normally. Advice – don’t get stuck in a rut when you order. Thai food isn't just about chicken curry so we definitely recommend the Thai House's seafood menu, too.
Let's just say I am still in search of a half decent Thai place in Vancouver...
...and I could have probably still enjoyed the ambiance a little bit more if I had went to a buffet and self-served the food myself. Service? No, there was a reason for 0% tip (and I am usually too generous!)
..what a pity indeed.
Its hard to get food downtown in the "in between" price point. Its either a food court fast food, or lavish expensive lunch. Thai house has a great lunch menu for $7.50 a plate. We shared 3 dishes, red and green curry chicken (green was hotter, red tasted better), and chicken with peanuts. Great lunch for 3, bill came to $23, less then $10 each. Great food and good amount for the price. Better then eating at the mall again!
After moving here from Calgary, I've found this site to be quite helpful in introducing which restaurants I plan to go. My co-workers brought me to dine at the Thai House on Robson earlier this week as they've been going there for over 10 years. Funny thing was when they ordered for me, the server simply said to my friend, #19 right, to which he said of course and for my new guy as well ! After devouring our lunch special, I was amazed at such a great deal - Soup, little bit of salad, spring roll, chicken dish and rice for only $7.50 ? Definately one of the best deals around ! I highly recommend this place which offers great food and great service and its no wonder my colleagues have been going there for so long. By the way, Go #19 cashew chicken in spicy sauce ! Cheers !
I was a newcomer for Thai food before visiting Thai House last weekend. I did some research on the internet before trying Thai Food; i was like heck..why not try the award-winning one and see what they've got. Despite the score on the previous review, I went to visit Thai House on Robson. The food was awesome, even though I wasn't a big fan of curry. Not only was the taste good, the look and setting of their plates were fabulous. I highly recommand anyone to go; preferably car-pool if you go with friends though ;) Oh I also brought some of their curry pouches home!
I ordered takeout tonight from thai house.....bad choice!!
Spring rolls with minced pork....Greasy, greasy, greasy....and not even sure if there was any pork in them!
Beef lettuce wrap....once again full of oil, drained about 2 tablespoons off before eating, and very small portion for the price
Chicken Pad See-iw....yes you guessed it also full of oil...this time about 4 tablespoons drained off before eating. complete lack of flavor, and over cooked broccoli.
With so many great places to eat in the west end....I will not be ordering from this place again!!!
Trying to tighten the budget these days and brown bagging daily just doesn't seem appealing enough. My co-workers and I agreed to go out with coupons and/or places that were worth dining out at. We all went to the Thai House on Robson as someone heard about their lunch specials. You gotta try it! Beats greasy fast food places for sure. You get soup, rice and a whole bunch of choices of main entrees for only $7.50. Had the curry chicken and it was awesome with lots of creamy sauce. I'm all about a complete "homemade" meal. Definitely will be back as the price and food and service is so right that it doesn't seem like you're scrimping. Too bad nobody told us about it earlier.
A couple of friends have told me out the Thai House's lunch special but I'm loyal to my small not well known eateries. I guess their nagging wore me down as I went to the Robson location with one of them after all. I'm not big on well known places with lots of locations but was I ever wrong! If anything all the other locations make it more convenient for me depending on where I am in town. The lunch special for $7.50 was amazing not just about the price but the quality of food was delish. I was skeptical so trust me, the food was served hot, and promptly even when the place was packed. I had the Green Curry with chicken and it was very tasty and not overly heavy full of spices or coconut milk. The portions were impressive and the meal came with a spring roll which was crispy, not oily like some places, and soup and rice. I would recommend this place for sure now as it has the feel and quality of service and food of a smaller restaurant along withe the price. It was good in all respects and it makes me wonder why I didn't listen to my friends sooner.
My friend Lisa and I went to the Robson location for our bi-monthly catch-up dinner. We choose a different restaurant each time. She's a semi-vegetarian so she was a bit uncertain if she would like the Thai House since she hasn't been before. Lisa went away and couldn't stop talking about how good the food was and how accommodating the staff were about her selections, and all her questions. She loved the spinach with prawn sauce as well as the bean curd wrap with the house sauce. Meanwhile, I had my Thai House fave of ostrich with red curry. I know it sounds weird and exotic but it's really tender and lean meat, and the curry is just amazing. In fact, Lisa and I went away buying a whole bunch of their curry pouches. The server told us about them and we were hooked. So yep, Thai House works well for vegetarians as well as for people like me too lazy and not skilled enough to duplicate the place's amazing curry. Yum!
