Great food

We've never actually eaten in the restaurant, but we order take out/delivery very often. It is by far our favorite Thai food in the city. Reasonable prices and great taste. They can sometimes be a little heavy handed on the spice so err on the side of caution with their spice scale if you're not a... read more

On vacation from the UK found this place via trip advisor and checked it out as we wander through china town. Went in for a meal Sunday night and got a table without having to make a reservation. The place was about half full but the phone was ringing off the hook for takeaway orders. Service was fast and friendly... More

We ate at this restaurant while on holiday and the meal was very nice. We noticed that the take away section was very busy so the locals must rate the food as well. The starter of Vegetable spring rolls was one of the nicest I have had, and the main course was tasty and full of lovely fresh vegetables

I popped by the Thai Bistro while in Calgary for just one night, and it was a perfect choice. Not too fancy, but the chicken pad thai was delicious (just enough kick and sweetness, with the perfect mix of meat, green onions, eggs and noodles!), the quantity ample, the service was quick, and the waiter just seemed like the nicest...

On a recent trip to Calgary I was really craving good Thai food. So, I went on my favorite review site and picked a few places to eat. Second on the list was Thai Bistro in chinatown. Great looking pictures and good menu, so I drove all the way downtown to try this place. I wish I had not. I... More

Nothing overly fancy, but four of us had a very satisfactory supper, which involved: - Chicken Salad Rolls: One plate with the standard peanut sauce and one with sweet chilli sauce (allergy considerations). I preferred the chilli sauce, but in general I'm a spring roll guy. - Steamed Rice: Good red curry sauce delivery device. - #56 Red Curry BBQ... More

Very easy to miss restaurant on Centre Street. Went for dinner at 6:00 ( opens at 5:00), not busy and the service was very pleasant. Restaurant has been in business since 2008 so they are established. Decent menu choices, different curries to choose from. Chicken skewers, pad thai, all had good flavours. Prices were reasonable and unlike some Thai restaurants,... More

We went here last week and ordered the Papaya salad, spring rolls, pad Thai, and Tom Ka Gai. The spring rolls were good, but not great. However the other dishes we extremely authentic. I have not had this salad or soup since being in Bangkok and it is as I remember. The pad Thai could have had a few more... More
