The Talay Thai Restaurant serves genuinely authentic Thai food, perhaps only one of two or three Thai restaurants in the Lower Mainland that do. We do not do "fusion" or simply add Thai spices to what are essentially Chinese-style dishes, as is the norm in most North American "Thai" restaurants.

Another distinction that makes Talay Thai unique among restaurants in metropolitan Vancouver is that by philosophy we are an all-woman operation; by design and for good reason (read more).

All the ingredients we use are fresh and are sourced daily. The unique flavours of our dishes are created by using genuine Thai ingredients especially imported to produce what we believe is a truly Thai gastronomic experience. Even some of the vegetables we use are not available in the markets of greater Vancouver.

We are from Chainat Province, in the central plains of Thailand and located about 200 km north of Bangkok.  This is the very heart of traditional Thai cuisine.

We wanted to give Vancouver genuine central Thai cuisine yet flavoured with our own innovative dishes, and it is our aim to offer you the most refined dishes from our region, with an authentic Thai flavour not met anywhere else in greater Vancouver, and made in the old-fashioned, family way, but served in a modern yet cosy ambience. We serve genuine Thai dishes as made and served to Thais in central Thailand since we are the only Thai chef and owner-operated central Thai restaurant in Vancouver.

When you come in we will greet you with a customary Thai smile of welcome and you will immediately feel at your Thai home away from home.

Seasoned with Thai basil, pandan leaf, galangal, kaffir lime leaf, Thai chillies, ginger and other vital ingredients that we source directly from Thailand, including fresh Thai green eggplant, we use fresh local produce and choice meats, seafoods and shellfish, to create an extraordinary selection of distinctive dishes that range from agreeably mild to red-hot spicy.

We use Thai eggplant (Solanum xanthocarpum), which is one of the essential ingredients in Thai curry dishes. In the other Thai restaurants outside of Thailand, Thai eggplants are replaced by the available eggplants in that country or by green peas, but we make the effort to acquire them for our dishes. According to Ayurveda, Thai eggplants are used for treating various health ailments. Please ask to have them included in your order.

With reasonable prices, we will customize your order to suit your taste. Just ask. In addition to the regular Thai dishes seen in most Thai restaurants, we also create our "special dishes". And, if the dish you wish is not on the menu (for those who have been to Thailand) do not be shy to ask for it. We are sure we can make it for you. Not everything in our culinary repertoire is on the menu.

Our decor is simple yet cosy Thai style, making you feel very welcome. Chat with the staff if you like, as we are always free to take the time to talk about our food, drinks, wines, Thai history or culture since we are all Thai and know.

So.... please.... give us the opportunity to serve you some of the finest Thai dishes that you will likely ever taste outside of Thailand....
