This place has been serving food longer than my son has been eating it. And he just finished grad school. It was started by two sisters from Thailand, one a very likeable hostess who came to be the de-facto den mother of all West Vancouver Thai gourmands, and the other, a genius chef who made food that packed the place in at all hours of the day. But it fell on hard times about a decade ago, when the chef died and those left to cook seem to wander aimlessly through the backwaters of the cuisine. To keep the restaurant in the family, the remaining sister sold it to one of her nephews, a recent college grad who had what turned out to be a very effective plan to get it back on its feet. Today, it is as good as it has ever been, with an upscale menu that didn't come along with upscale prices, an admirable set of chefs (more than likely family), and a friendly staff who bend over backwards to accommodate you. One thing that hasn't changed is the warm, family atmosphere. If you sit down here, you won't feel as if you've entered a restaurant, but as if you've been invited into someone's home. Oh, and look, they're just about to put food on the table! The closest thing that comes to mind is the Italian trattoria, but I'm certain lots of countries have the same thing. If you're ever in Vancouver (USA), and you're a big fan of Thai Cuisine, do yourself a favor and stop by for chow. You won't be disappointed.
And make sure to ask for the window seat... Nice little park in the middle of Vancouver, WA. The switchbacks up the hill, surrounded by tall trees will make you feel like you're a lot further from town. It was a nice, quiet place to stretch my dogs legs for a bit and eat my lunch from nearby Panera Bread.
