Probably some of the best Thai food I have ever eaten outside Thailand. I ordered the basil beef stir fry. The food was delicious: vegetables were fresh and crunchy, the meat was tender, and you could smell the basil. The owner was honest enough to tell me that I had to wait at least an hour for my order. Initially... More

Amazing cuisine! The decor is a kitschy mix of old and odd, and you might call the place a shambles. But somehow that adds to its charm and shows visitors to Gibsons that they are truly in a small town with the ambiance of past generations. The proprietor (a funny guy who says his wife is the boss) explained to... More

This is a very small place so not really great for a long dinner but would likely be a good lunch spot. We ordered by phone and went to pick up. Food was hot, very tasty, great price and the owner was very friendly and welcoming.

This is the best take out food you can buy! SO fresh and delicous. Always consistent and never will you have a bad meal. The service is excellent and owners are so friendly.

It took us nearly two hours to get our food. Don't get me wrong, the food was good and the portions were very generous. It was a Sunday night though and I think the restaurateur might just be a victim of his own success. He could use more help!

Order 30 - 60 minutes in advance. The most friendliest couple you will meet, always so happy. Everything is made so fresh. They won't put the finishing touches on until you are ready to pick up. Stir fried Thai basil on rice is the best. Green beans with it are always perfect. Very small space for eating in. Take out... More

It was Mother's Day and we decided to get take out, after a late lunch. Not feeling like Chinese or Pizza, we decided to give Absolutely Thai a try for the first time. They were busy and we had to wait 1 1/2 hours before we could pick up our dinner. It is always freshly made and this is a... More

I wouldn't recommend this place if you like Thai food. It is bland and has little or no flavour. We've tried it twice to give it a fair shot and both times were disappointed. We cannot recommend this restaurant.
