Food was excellent and service was great. Our appy's were filling and the "drunken" noodles and sticky rice. The beef and broccoli was great too.

We came here because it was close to where we are staying in Vancouver. Decor-wise it is really.. pink. As in bright pink, which is fine since everything was also clean and uncrowded. The service was prompt and friendly but the star was the food. Authentic thai food as far as I can tell, lots of menu options, large portions,... More

Food is average Thai in a nice setup (if you don't mind pink.) Found the dishes too sweet...every dish. Being charged $3 per (small) bowl of rice was a turn-off. And since Thai food got to be eaten with rice, they've got you on that charge. They should hide the price of rice in the price for the food dishes.... More

Was at Downtown for dinner and Thai wasn't our original choice. Ended up at Pink Elephant Thai because there was no reservation made from the other resto. My friends and I were fascinated with the pink chairs as one of my girlfriends love the color pink. Service was quick, prices reasonable and overall, the place was cozy. The food was... More

Just happened on this restaurant by chance while shopping in Vancouver and decided to drop in for lunch. Great value bundles...... just $10 for main course with rice plus a spring roll to start. Surroundings and decor were really great, not the usual overly ornate decor you would associate with typical Thai. Quality of food was excellent - really tasty.... More

I ordered the pad thai noodles. At lunch they only have lunch specials, I don't think the a la carte menu is available. I should have ordered the curry because I think it would have been better. My friend ordered some kind of fried rice which was also, average. I didn't enjoy the pad thai because it was overly sweet,... More

When you walk in you struck with PINK! The booths, chairs etc. are all pink vinyl. Very cool! Great food and great value. Priced very reasonable. We opted for one of the dinners for 4. The food just kept on coming and we found we could not finish it all. The meal was excellent and the service was great. You... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
