“The best pad thai I have had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

I used to live and work on Commercial Drive, and visit Take Thai Home religiously. The red curry was my first addiction, but after trying their pad thai, I have to say it is, hands down, the best I have ever had. I find myself comparing other pad thai to theirs, and nothing is ever up to par. I even took my boyfriend here, who has traveled to Thailand (and a huge lover of their food) and he also agrees this is one of the best! To make it even better, the owner, Kit, is a wonderful and generous man who makes you feel right at home!

“Yellow curry was a good tip!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2013

Thanks to Trip Advisor, I decided to give the yellow curry a go! If my husband's latna was anything to go by, I absolutely made the right call! That said, both rather had an MSG aftertaste... not sure if that was just the seasonings they used, or if they actually put MSG in their meals. His was swimming in the gravy, which rather overpowered everything. The noodles were nice, once you drained them off a bit, though. The yellow curry was genuinely pleasant, though. Nothing to write home about, but perfectly nice. We also shared the spring rolls as a starter. Dripping with grease, sadly, but the underlying flavour was nice if they'd been drained properly. We'll definitely give them another try at some point.

“Spontaneous visit did not disappoint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Had a very tasty meal, reasonably priced. You order at the register but service was good. Very patient and willing to answer questions. Customized an order at my request. Surprised us with complimentary cups of soup to start. I enjoyed the yellow curry a lot!!

“great deal on tasty meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

If you like spicy food or Thai in particular this is a great place to get a very tasty and quick meal for a very reasonable price. The place is very casual, kind of semi self-service. Nothing fancy or romantic. You have to order your food at the front counter and pre-pay. It is then braught to your table. Drinks are self serve. But service is always very friendly and prompt. The food is exquisitly prepared and very tasty. The regular orders are quite large and almost enough for two people. I usually have a combo meal wich comes with a soup, a bit of salad and rice included. The portions are smaller on the combo, but with the extras it makes a perfectly balanced meal. Not too much, not too little. For about $10 (combo) an excellent value for beautiful meal.
