Jinda Thai

Another Thai restaurant visited on a busy Wednesday. Wasn’t able to book and upon arrival we were told that we only have 1hr 15mins seating. Super short compared with other restaurant where they have two hours…

After a while – we did see it being fully packed! It’s a popular place in Abbotsford.

I ordered the Thai lemon tea and it was quite different to any standard lemon tea I’ve previously tried. It’s strong in tea flavour – a good wake up drink. Only a hint of lemon flavour.

We ordered several main dishes to share amongst 4 of us – from the Grill we had Neur Yang – Thai style marinated beef to medium rare. It was nicely marinated with a sour and chilli dipping sauces. One of the only dishes we ordered that didn’t have A LOT of spice, $19.90

Green Curry Chicken was beautiful and creamy. With just the right amount of coconut cream. Unfortunately for the price of $17.90 it doesn’t come with a rice. My friend found it the most spicy dish compared with the other dishes.

Chicken Pad Thai was delicious. Lacked a bit of presentation for me. $14.90

Pad Gra Pow – chilli & basil stir fry with crispy pork, $17.90 – originally thought this was a veggie dish with crispy pork but turns out to be meat > veggies. Trust that when Jinda Thai says spicy – that IT IS spicy! 

Larb $14.90 – hand roasted then grounded rice, crushed dried chilli, mint, red onions with minced pork. All my friends that night could take chilli/spicy food, but when they have to stop eating and go for water – it’s serious! Again another spicy dish.

After all the spices in our tastebuds we should have gotten a dish that was stronger or sweeter in flavour but we didn’t think it through – we ordered the coconut crepe. I like how there were bits of coconut in the foam splashed on top and toasted coconut sprinkled around the plate. But the flavours were so mild that we were searching for stronger flavours. It would have been better if the ice cream was also coconut, unfortunately, it was vanilla. Although the highlight was the ice cream, we didn’t feel like we got want we wished for $8.90…

To sum it up: A wide variety of selections, great for group sizes of 4+. Inconvenient when unable to secure a table for large groups. Food is on point but small in portion for the price charged. For the non-spicy eaters – watch out for the spice!
