Thai Escape – Thai near Joyce Skytrain

Back on October 8th, 2013, a new Thai restaurant opened up near the Joyce Skytrain station where the old Solav Souvlaki used to be.

While they usually close on Mondays, I happened to visit for a quick lunch right before Christmas so they were fortunately open since they were planning to close mid-week for the holidays.


Not much has changed in decor of this restaurant except for the Thai pictures on the wall.  It’s not a large restaurant with only six tables (14 seats) available.


I opted for my usual default choice for new Thai restaurants… the Green Curry Chicken.  The lunch special is $8 and comes with a very hot and crispy vegetarian spring roll.  I think the salad that came with the special had a honey mustard type dressing which I found to be a bit random.  Besides the chicken, the curry included peas, tender eggplant, bell peppers, and Thai basil in a curry sauce that had a moderate spice level.


Lunch was pretty good so I decided to pick up some take-out for dinner.  The Pad Thai ($10) is made with tamarind sauce stir-fried with egg, tofu, green onions, and bean sprouts along with your choice of protein.

The Spicy Green Beans with Prawns ($13) was a bit smaller than I expected but were tasty with crunchy beans.


This restaurant is normally closed on Mondays and open Tuesday to Sunday from 11:30am to 9pm.

Thai Escape on Urbanspoon

  1. Delicious. Fresh and Crisp – authentic Thai dishes.

    My rating: Service 8, Food 10, Cleanliness 9, Location 10.
    Decoration: I like their way of ‘less is more’ accessorizing its eatery.

    My friend and I ordered Tom Kah, Yum Woon Sen, Pad Thai, Spring rolls, and a bowl of rice. We wallop them all. Would highly recommend “Thai Escape” for those who appreciate freshly cooked and prepared food.

    Will be going back with our parents and peers :)-
