We tried this restaurant out a couple of times. It is always about the same. Good food, not bad service but fairly pricey. It is definitely not the best Thai food that we have had (not even close to the best) and we do not know if we will be back.

I have been going to this restaurant since 1994, when I first went with my family it was fantastic. Over the years it has been going down hill . I am sure it has changed owners a few times. This is what happens when the ownership changes and the name stays the same. Tonight I went there , I ordered... More

My wife and I wanted some real Thai food for lunch and chose here. We were delighted with the service and food. The lunch specials have rice and the dish and are bargain priced. There is easy parking and some view of the ocean. Highly commended.

I called and ordered take out lunch. The noodles were VERY greasy and there was only 2 prawns a few small scraps of meat with perhaps 1/2 teaspoon of peanuts. I would not go back there again.

Food was delicious. Service was okay. We did not have to wait to be seated, although we had a reservation. Food came out quickly. Excellent pad thai. I would recommend it.

We dined in. We waited over 5 minutes to be seated, 5 minutes to receive the menu's and over 45 minutes to be served. There was one server, who served the people who came after us first. The food was nice when it arrived, but then they only served half our party. Probably the worst service ever. Avoid unless you... More

Waited at the door for 10 minutes and had to ask 2 times to be seated. Then when we finally sat down no one took our order and we ended up leaving. Definitely will not be coming back here again.

Leela Thai Restaurant is hands down my Favourite Restaurant in White rock as well as my favourite Thai restaurant over the entire Lower Mainland. It is quaint and the service is great. I am always happy ordering from Leela Thai because the food has great balance and flavor that un-authentic restaurants lack. 10/10 highly recommend and I will continue to... More

The prices of the dishes is the main attraction. The service is not good. We were here before it got busy. Not once was my wine offered to be filled. If we asked for something, it seemed like it was an inconvenience. The food was decent enough for the price to go back. Not mind blowing, bad service, good value.... More
