    While hopping on a plane to Bangkok to get some good Thai food may be a bit much, driving all the way to Tsawassen for some of the best Thai cuisine in the Lower Mainland is certainly worth the adventure. Yes, too bad that Kon Thai is all the way out on 56th Street and 16th Avenue (or is it 56th Avenue and 16th Street? Only my GPS can tell)…. On the other hand, if they were located in my own neighbourhood I would certainly be visiting several times a week on the excellent food at extremely reasonable prices (dinner for two, with drinks, came to barely $ 45, with leftovers enough for next day’s lunch). Khla and Wir, the two young Thai men who put together their own menu of very authentic Thai dishes and wield the spoons in the kitchen, obviously know what they are doing, and they do it well. I wish I could have sampled more of the menu (all items are nicely and clearly explained); as it was, Khla decided what we should eat, and his choices were superb: the Tod Mun Goong shrimp cakes appetizer was very tasty; and the Red Curry roast duck (Gang Ped Pet Yang) full of surprises to the palate: fresh pineapple, lychees, basil, tomatoes, green peppers, all in a creamy coconut sauce. Another dish had fish in a black pepper sauce… yummie. Khla even provided a quick cooking lesson!! The meal was rounded off with a huge bowl of rice cooked with pandan leaves and coconut milk. I will definitely go back… many times!!!!

    A seriously good spot...

    A labour of love by two boyhood friends from Bangkok, Kon Thai excels teaching the western palate to appreciate great Southern Thailand cooking. This is not a "lunch special" kind of place (even though they do have a decent lunch trade) and if you're looking for unrecognizable overcooked food to be eaten in 20 minutes, you'll have to look elsewhere. Even at lunch, often a culinary wasteland, considerable thought goes into the subtle blending of traditional Thai spices and ingredients with a more modern approach to dishes that do not fail to please. I have eaten there 5 times and have come to trust the two young owners to suggest what we should order. You need to know that there's a world of discovery awaiting beyond Pad Thai; it pays to be adventuresome here and the "new" dishes are a real reward. The food is about the best Thai I've eaten and I've visited Thailand regularly for years; the ingredients are fresh, each dish is cooked to order, and the presentation of the individual dishes artful. Kon Thai is definitely 4 star Asian dining at 2 star prices. Not to be missed...
