We ordered take out here a couple of weeks ago and it definitely didn't live up to the reviews posted. This may have been because of take out, but the portions were quite small relative to price and the overall quality of the food was definitely not great. The service however was great and the food was ready within 20... More

Dear ExpSid15, We are grateful for your valuable feedback and my sincere apologies that our lemongrass chicken did not meet your expectations. We set ourselves to high standards in using premium quality and fresh ingredients for all dishes (dine in or take out) and obviously feel very concerned when a guest feels otherwise. Kai Takrai (lemongrass chicken) is a popular... More

The Pad thai noodles are really good!!! I tasted the Pad Sew and it was delightful, the restaurant is small but it's pretty from the inside and the prices are ok. My only complain would be that I think that he portions were small for me. I guess that could be fixed adding a starter to my order. I will... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and have never been disappointed. We always get a beef dish, a chicken dish, a prawn dish and a couple of appies. The food is excellent, but the garnishes are beautiful!

We needed a place to meet for dinner in between Cloverdale and Commercial Drive in Vancouver, so my daughter chose Thai New West based on reviews from the internet. Our reservation was for 6 p.m. and there was only one group in the restaurant at that time. The place is intimate and tastefully furnished; the bathroom is clean and attractive,... More

This small restaurant has simple elegance that makes it a nice choice for a date that won't break the bank, but will impress. My dish, a stir fry of vegetables in a sweet chili sauce, came beautifully presented. I found the spicing a nice mix of heat and sweet. The menu advises you to tell the server which level of...
