I have sampled most of the Thai restaurants in Vancouver, so you’ll have to believe me when I say that U & I Thai is the best. The food here is so good that it has left me literally speechless multiple times.
I love going to U & I Thai for the Green Curry and the Jumbo Prawns in a Blanket, although I would just visit to order some coconut rice, which is the best rice I have ever tasted. For drinks, I highly recommend the Thai Iced Tea.
U & I Thai is a family-run restaurant that really focuses on giving guests a relaxed and exotic fine cuisine experience. They offer the usual Thai restaurant staples like Pad Thai and coconut curries, as well as artistically presented and delicious meals that are unique to U & I Thai. The food is so good that it has won awards – the Green Queen Curry won first place at the Vancouver Curry Challenge 2014.
The atmosphere at U & I Thai is relaxed, but classy; it’s definitely a nice place to take someone out on a date or just to experience fine Thai dining.
Local Tip: If you want to go to U & I Thai on a Friday or Saturday night, you’ll need to make a reservation; on most other nights you won’t have to wait for a table.
