BUSI­NESS­MAN DAVIDYUILL OF­TEN EN­TER­TAINS CLIENTS, and when he does he in­vites them to U&I Thai. This up­scale restau­rant fits his needs for so­phis­ti­cated din­ing that pro­vides spec­tac­u­lar gas­tron­omy and ex­cel­lence in cus­tomer ser­vice.

U& I Thai is gar­ner­ing glow­ing r eviews for in­spir­ing and au­then­tic flavours of owner Ui Rat­somjit’s na­tive coun­try. Many Thai ex­pa­tri­ates and lo­cal gov­ern­ment dig­nit aries boast its ac­co­lades. Re­cently, the Royal Thai Con­sulate Gen­eral in Van­cou­ver awarded it the pres­ti­gious Thai Se­lect Pre­mium Gold Seal of Ap­proval.

Orig­i­nally from the Isaan Re­gion of North­east Thai­land, Ui honed her culi­nary skills on her mother’s cook­ing. The as­pir­ing restau­ra­teur then op­er­ated her own street food stall in Bangkok be­fore mov­ing to Canada more than a decade ago.

At U&I Thai, it’s not just about the de­li­cious food; it’s about en­gag­ing the senses. The ar­tis­ti­cally plated pre­sen­ta­tion, the warm con­tem­po­rary dé­cor with rich dark woods and Thai mu­sic softly play­ing sat­is­fies the eye, nose and palate.

At the helm of the kitchen is award-win­ning ex­ec­u­tive chef A-Ngun Phutyaem. She brings to life Ui’s vi­sion for tra­di­tional Thai flavours. Hav­ing worked at a five-star ho­tel in Thai­land, Phutyaem stays true to the Thai tenets of sour, sweet, salty and spice, mak­ing U&I Thai a per­fect ex­am­ple of fine cui­sine.

Whether guests start their culi­nary ad­ven­ture with Isaan sausages or Isaan let­tuce wraps, be­fore car­ry­ing on to tra­di­tional dishes such as Pad Thai, ev­ery­one leaves hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced a truly won­der­ful din­ing ad­ven­ture.
