GoThai Restaurant or Go Home

It was our wedding anniversary a few days ago and we headed out to our old favorite Thai House restaurant at Station Square in Metrotown, Burnaby. It was our special dine-out hang-out during pre-children bliss. Unfortunately, that location is undergoing some renovations and has been closed indefinitely (that will teach me for not calling in advance to make reservations).

I looked online for another Thai restaurant nearby and found GoThai Restaurant in the Sapperton area of New Westminster. It's not quite fine-dining like Thai House and appeared to have more take-out orders
than sit-ins. We ordered Tom Yum Goong soup for our appetizer and it was decent but didn't have the crab legs that we were used to having. Nothing special I can call home to mom about. We had the Red Curry
dish which was good and the seafood platter which again didn't have the special kick I was looking for. We did like the Black Sticky Rice and Taro pudding for dessert which I think is worth coming back for.
And we did come back and tried Poh Taeh soup (name made me snicker a little) just to try something else but it tasted just like Tom Yum Goong soup, which is to say it was fine.
