Restaurant Awards 2022: These Are The Best Thai Restaurants in Vancouver

Your 2022 guide to the best Thai restaurants in Vancouver.

Best Thai Restaurants in Vancouver 2022

GOLD: Baan Lao4100 Bayview Street

SILVER: Maenam1938 W 4th Avenue

BRONZE: Kin Kao Song317 E Broadway


Baan Lao

For high-end Thai food, we’re looking down—south, specifically, to Steveston’s Baan Lao. The refined, rotating menu by Chef Nutcha Phanthoupheng earned the Richmond restaurant a place on the Canada’s Best New Restaurants list this year, so it’s not surprising that Baan Lao wins gold in our 2022 Thai category. (“There really isn’t anything quite like it in Canada,” remarked one of our judges).


Maenam takes silver as the Kits eatery that continues to set a benchmark for Thai dining in the city with its quality ingredients and innovative twists on the classics.

Kin Kao Song

Bronze goes to Kin Kao Song—sister restaurant to Kin Kao—applauded for its rustic authenticity, and the honourable mention goes to the unfussy (but worth fussing over) Unchai.
