Maenam (which translates as "mother water") dishes some of the most authentic Thai food Vancouver has yet seen. Chef Angus An, who trained under chef David Thompson at the world's only Michelin-starred Thai restaurant (Nahm in London), applies his affections for locally sourced and seasonal ingredients to the traditions of the Thai royal house. Beyond the real-deal pad Thai, aim for the grilled... more

This moderately priced Thai menu brings this Asian cuisine to a new level. Although some of chef Angus An's dishes may sound familiar—green papaya salad, pad thai, curries—they're amped up with local ingredients, fresh herbs, and vibrant seasonings. Look for delicious innovations, too: perhaps crispy B.C. oysters, a banana blossom salad with a tamarind and palm sugar dressing, or "eight-spice... more

I have eaten here many times. I have also eaten a number of times at other well-regarded Thai restaurants in Vancouver that I consider to be good or very good. That said, they are not Maenam in terms of either the quality of the ingredients (superb) or the complexity of certain of the dishes, which must involve many (expensive) steps... more

If you go when it is warm, ask if they have finally gotten air conditioning

We were so excited to get a last minute reservation at Maenam because it is rated the #1 Thai restaurant in Vancouver. When we arrived, my husband asked if we could be seated on the main floor because there were many tables, but we were told we had to sit upstairs. We immediately started feeling very warm, and asked if... more

Easily the best Thai in Vancouver
April 04, 2015

We have been many times and most times, they exceed my expectations. Not your totally traditional Thai menu, which suits me just fine. Just had tender flavourful pork ribs, a duck curry and an awfully good Phad Thai. The drink menu is creative and the wine list totally acceptable. Also the space is modern and attractive, albeit a bit noisy.... more

Best Thai,

magazine since 2010. Inventive Thai dishes use local ingredients and nod to traditional recipes. Order a stir-fry or curry and a well-crafted cocktail to match. $$. L (Tu-Sa), D (daily).

It's a bold statement to make, but Maenam may just be Vancouver's best Thai restaurant for a number of reasons. The atmosphere is open, yet warm. Casual, yet polished. Cool, but not too trendy. The cocktail list is bang on and made up of distinctive flavors that have hints of spice, sweet and sour - depending on which one you choose. The food is authentic and made from high quality ingredients.... more
