We are not Thai food knowledgeable diners, but as Foodies we know this little restaurant serves outstanding dishes. First timers and our meal was so great that we can't wait to go back especially after seeing spectacular plates served to other tables. Like deboned half duck roasted with Thai herbs and steamed vegetables served on a sizzling platter and drizzled... More

We've been to Kasira several times and I'm finally getting around to this. The food is simply amazing! Every dish we have had has been delicious. The menu is quite large, the portions very generous, and the prices very reasonable. The staff are very friendly and the service is great. We've been to Thailand a number of times and when... More

Stopped into this smallish thai restaurant tucked into a small strip mall. The food was tasty, fresh and the portions were generous. Very busy restaurant with pleasant staff who were overworked and needed help. The service was slow - but pleasant - and when the food finally arrived, it was top notch. We will definitely return to this special spot.... More

This is a great restaurant run by a great family. The food is great. The portions are well sized and Joy, the owner, is just the sweetest lady. Don't miss this place if you are looking for Thai food in Nanaimo!

This is a casual yet lovely Thai restaurant within a strip mall, where you can get a delicious meal. I ordered the Happy Boat and was very impressed. It features local salmon, scallops, and prawns along with crisp vegetables in a sizzling spicy tamarind sauce. The salmon was perfect tender and moist on the inside with a light glaze on... More

It's sort of unfair to write this review as I spend a lot of time in Thailand , I still think places should be somewhat authentic , appetizer platter was more like Chinese food platter , the main issue was requesting extra spicy and still not feeling it was even a mild spicy . This is common most places in... More

Best coconut milk soup and spring rolls. Whether you have the soup with tofu or chicken, both are excellent. Definitely make reservation - fills up quickly! Don't feel rushed, while enjoying wonderful food.

We made a reservation as we heard this restaurant fills up quickly. Glad we did as a couple after us who also had a reservation still had to wait 20 mins to sit down and there is nowhere to sit and wait just an awkward space by the front door. We had a table near the front door and every... More

We have been going to Kasira for about three years now and it is the best Thai food we have ever had. It is so consistent and fresh. We take all our friends and family there for a fabulous meal. The staff are fantastic and make you feel so welcome.
