simple, delicious, reasonably priced

I have been there a few times, for lunch, with various friends. The food has always been consistently good. Most dishes are served with a sizable portion of fluffy white rice.

Whenever my wife and I are in Vancouver we make it a point to eat at Baan Wasana. As ethical vegans we are impressed with the number of incredibly tasty vegan options the restaurant offers. And the Thai eggplant is to die for!!! We have traveled the world trying to find a better prepared eggplant and so far Baan Wasana... More

Excellent service...lovely decor...decent-sized portions, but nothing to brag about with the food. The pad thai was lees than ordinary: noodles with little flavor and not enough other stuff. Green papaya salad...the same: just not enough flavor. Tom yum soup was better. I have eaten at many Thai restaurants. This chef is below average.

No sense of loyalty and keeping their long time customers. I am a good person who is forgiving. On more than one occasion they have made mistakes in our order. Their food is bland and cooking skills are sub par. I've felt sick often after eating their food. Save your money and stomachs and go elsewhere. « Read less

This is a delightful little restaurant hidden on West 41st Avenue - the decor is charming and the place is very clean. The staff is friendly and it was obvious that many people living nearby frequent the restaurant on a regular basis as many were greeted by name. The choice of luncheon specials is amazing and all are served with... More

Cozy family run restaurant that serves probably the best Northern Thai cuisine in Vancouver. The preparation base for each of the curries is distinct, unlike many other restaurants where the red, green and yellow curries all taste fairly similar. The dry curries are also excellent, as is the Swimming Rama. Dessert, too, whilst limited in choice, is also prepared meticulously.

I have had a lot of Thai food in Thailand and around the world and the Pad Thai here was strictly average or a bit below. The green curry was also not up to snuff. Generally, in Vancouver, there are way too many better restaurants, although perhaps not in the centre of Kerrisdale.

There was nothing wrong with this restaurant, but also nothing special or memorable. We love Thai and eat it often so by our standards this fell right smack in the "average" range. The room is kind of tired, the food is fine, there is nothing wrong with the service and that's really all to be said.

This is the BEST Thai restuarant in Vancouver (I've personally tried nearly all of them). This is an unexpected find in Kdale but SO GOOD. My personal favourites are the Pad Thai and the Panang Curry. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is reasonably priced! Lunch Special is great value!! Cannot urge you to go there highly... More

Ate here with a group of five after attending a grad at UBC on a wednesday night. The service was good, not amazing, but the food was really good. It was nice to know that we could take as much or little spice as we wanted, they were able to accommodate. The yellow curry and hot & sour soup were... More

Staying in Kerrisdale

Neighborhood Profile
Kerrisdale
Kerrisdale is Vancouver's laid-back shopping district. In contrast to Robson Street, there is more on offer, at more competitive pricing and a slower pace. Called "The Village" colloquially, over 200 storefronts and one-off shops crowd its streets with products and services. It is set in a comparatively sleepy part of town, with tasteful homes and tree-lined walks. Many of its buildings are listed on the Heritage registry, making it a wonderful place to amble and take in the visual history. Moreover, Kerrisdale's healthy consumer culture is especially apt for those interested in culinary, specialty, or children's shops, boasting more of these than anywhere else, meaning that it's a busy spot for families and hobbyists on the weekends.
