Thai Star serves delicious, homemade Thai food in Kitsilano.
I was really excited to try a new Thai restaurant in the neighbourhood, so we ordered take out from Thai Star tonight. The delivery time was super speedy, but I didn't find the food very good. We ordered spring rolls, which were ok; chicken with basil which was ok, but you'd be hard pressed to find any basil; and green curry chicken, which was mostly just spicy and sweet and lacking the usual flavour of a green curry. Serving sizes were generous, with lots of meat, and the price was reasonable, but I just found flavour lacking in the dishes.
Our friend hosted a bday party here with around 30 people. The food is great!!! This restaurant is run as a "mom pop" shop. So its all local fresh produce. We special ordered in advance curry crab. an explosion of spices mixed in with the natural flavours of the crab, it was surely the best curry crab i've ever had. Apparently the chef use to work for Tropika for over 10 years and decided to start his own business.
Being big fans of Thai food were were quite looking forward to trying out this new restaurant. We were very impressed by the fresh tasty meals we received!
I would highly recommend a visit to this lovely local eatery, you won't be disappointed! In the three years since we have lived here four restaurants have set up shop in this unfortunate spot between the popular cafe Zen and our ugly ally way, I think these guys are proving something unique, high quality to this foodie corner of kits. We wish them every success with this great restaurant :-)
