Fifteen years after establishing themselves within a burgeoning Yaletown, Urban Thai Bistro is all grown up. And while a fresh look—including an all-new bar and lounge area—may have revamped the mainstay restaurant, Urban Thai’s goals remain the same:

“We pay attention to all of the little details and offer our customers the very best quality of food coupled with great attentive and courteous service,” tells Desmond Chen, Director of Thai House Ventures whose local restaurant portfolio also includes Thai House Restaurants and Pink Elephant Thai. The result according to Chen, and further proven by Urban Thai’s 15-year legacy? “An unparalleled local Thai dining experience.”

Attention to detail means Yaletown’s original Asian restaurant has recently been updated to better suit the neighborhood’s mixed clientele. The modern aesthetic balances a rugged post-and-beam framework with metallic chandeliers and Buddha statuettes, emanating a warm vibe that reflects the flavours of Thailand.

Whether you’re looking to fully immerse yourself in the dining experience from the Chef’s Table, to unwind over Happy Hour appies and drinks on the heated patio, to watch the game with friends, or to grab a quick bite in the middle of your work day ($9 lunch specials run from 11:30 to 3), Urban Thai Bistro will make you a regular in no time. After all, with over 100 authentic Thai dishes and a host seasonal specialties created by their innovative team of all Thai chefs, you’ll have plenty of reason to keep coming back.
