I am Thai and this is a Thai restaurant and I can guarantee it. This is the most authentic Thai food you can get in Vancouver. If you want really really authentic you can ask them so as well.

Very very disappointed with their attitude. I ordered a regular entree and called back to ask to have rice and salad because I forgot to add a combo and I said sorry for having to ask again and she hung up the first time. I...called back and said hey you hung up and I said I just wanted to order the rice and salad that usually comes with the combo. The lady on the phone immediately got angry said I was blaming them for making a mistake and that it "wasn't the kitchen's fault" but I told her I wasn't I just wanted to order some more not sure why she said that and then I said that in the beginning I just wanted to buy the rice, salad and wonton like the combo because I forgot originally and then she continued to have a frustrated attitude it was so stressful to hear that (especially coming back from the clinic and hospital today) so I said I would just call back and my bf heard what happened called them back and told them that I just wanted the combo so they said they would make it for free and it was a misunderstanding. I got there and they still just charged me. Really upsetting. I loved going here with their normally bright a lovely attitude but after that I will never come back again. To add to that it was 50$ plus the 3.5 for the rest of the order (One order of pad kra pao,ladna and chicken satay appetizer and I agree with other reviews the portions are very very small) when I went to pick it up. I gave them 5$ because I felt bad for the girl at the front . It wasn't that we couldn't pay for it but the service was very uncomfortable that I would not be able to come back.More

Firstly, the waitress was lovely. However... the food was so bad. Pretty unfussy when it comes to Thai, never had a bad Thai before - in Thailand or any other country. We ordered basic dishes and both were bad (sorry!). The Phad Thai didn’t look...right the minute it arrived. It was bright orange, and floating around in a lot of sauce - upon tasting? It was tomato pasta sauce. We asked our waitress why it tasted like spaghetti and she said “yes all phad Thai have tomato sauce”. Since when? Then came the fried rice, which I didn’t know could be bad. It had black pieces of burnt food in it ... just horrible. Worst Thai ever.More

Love the "hot" dishes....best curry chicken, pad Thai....even the simpler dishes like spring rolls. Reasonable prices as well.

Take Thai Home has definitely improved over time, and it appears that its take out customers are loyal and frequent. The menu is fairly extensive for such a small place, and though I have explored it a bit, my favourite is still the Pad Thai....Particularly good on a rainy afternoon, the food is steaming hot, and has a great fragrance and pleasant degree of chemical heat. While the restaurant is large enough, it does not seem to depend on customers eating on site. Although that would probably mean hiring more waiters, it is a wonder that they don't exploit that obvious possibility. Some more welcoming touches to the dining room, perhaps some booths or nicer chairs, even a few potted plants might be worth the investment. Still, I have found this little eatery to have good service, good food and a menu that keeps people coming back for more. For a light and satisfying meal at a very reasonable cost, you can't go far wrong with Take Thai Home.More

While strolling Commercial Drive my wife and I happened upon Take Thai Home. I had padthai and she had chicken with cashew nuts. We ordered both 3 peppers out of 5 spicy. Both dishes were excellent, although the chicken seemed a little spicier. Decor is...simple, staff is cheerful. We will return!More

Visited Take Thai Home for a late lunch on a Sunday. I really enjoyed the fresh exotic flowers on every table. That was the best part of the meal for me! I do not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The Ginger chicken dish I ordered...tasted like the meat was old and twice cooked. My friend was unable to eat half of the Pad Thai she ordered. Bland. Yes, the food was inexpensive (dishes were $8-9 each), it arrived quickly but was lacking flavour and quality. No problems with our waitress, she was polite. Skip this!More

I ordered take-out. Service was speedy and prices are fair. I ordered: Deep fried tofu appetizer - Crispy coated chunks of tofu, spiced just right and served with a peanut plum sauce. Yum! This was so good I came back for it the next night...too and for only $6.50 it's a great dinner eaten by itself as it comes with a crunchy salad. Papaya salad - crunchy and fresh with a distinctly sour dressing. Not bad. Needed more peanuts, although I'm a peanut glutton. Panang Curry (chicken) - creamy and amazing. This is my so rich and lovely over rice. Such a signature well-rounded flavor. Green Curry (chicken) - by far my favorite curry, and they did it marvelously. A creamy rich sauce with tender perfect eggplant slices. Overall, will absolutely be making this my new Thai spot.More

Underwhelming, we tried this for take-away based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Really people? Pad Thai was OK, nothing special, the spring rolls were filled with something ground up beyond recognition but the real disappointment had to be the Panang curry. Very runny, not at...all spicy (we were not given the option of adjusting the heat) filled with lots of chunks of red and green bell pepper, we'd asked to have chicken added, it was, but thin strips of chicken lacking any taste. It was pretty good value, but don't think I'll be back.More
