I'm not sure why people are posting 4-5 stars, my experience was less than stellar. I came to this place after seeing great reviews on google/yelp. I'm going out of my way to write a review based on an experience I had yesterday.
I came here for dinner one night. Service was okay, nothing exceptional. The young hostess seemed a little inexperienced but she was polite more or less. The owner seemed friendly. This is the only reason why I'm not giving this place 1 of 5.
Here's the essence of my criticism: there's something wrong with their meats. I've ordered satay chicken skewers to start and pad panang (pork) as the main - both meats were dry. I don't think the chicken was marinated and my guess is that it was cooked after being sliced. It lacked any juiciness - I didn't finish it. The pork was initially unrecognizable. I finished that dish out of hunger.
I hope that my experience is an anomaly. I didn't have the heart to complain to the friendly gentleman who seemed to be the owner.

Very fast friendly service. The food was served hot and delicious. It is a small establishment, but even when they are busy, the food is worth the wait.

Went for lunch and had the beef soup and spring rolls. They came out of the kitchen in a timely fashion. The broth was much more flavorful than similar soups I have tried elsewhere. I would recommend this place to others and I will back again

My most favorite Thai place I've ever been. I live in Vancouver and I've tried so many places hoping I might be able to find a place that can match flavor, aroma and value. Not a single place has so far and not sure it will ever happen. Highly recommend it

Stopped off in Campbell River for the night and was just looking for a bite to eat. I wasn't expecting it to be brilliant, I go a prawn curry to take away and I can't remember the last time I had such a delicious curry! The sauce had actual star anise and cinnamon sticks in that proves it was all cooked from scratch. Hats of to the chef, I will be back!
