Not to be missed!

We dined around 5 pm, avoiding any waits, and enjoyed excellent service. If you like duck, two Chef's Specials on the menu called Spicy Duck ( half a bird) or Thai Inter (duck & seafood) have generous portions and are served on sizzling platters, so visually impressive and super hot. Flavors are... read more

First, the good news - the servers were friendly and efficient. Unfortunately, the rest was a disappointment. We had a 20-minute wait for a table, another fairly long wait for appetizers, and another long wait for dinner. The pad thai was too spicy for me, even though we had ordered mild. When I mentioned that to the waitress, she said... More

We've eaten at Kasira Fine Thai restaurant on a number of occasions. Busy or slow, meals are readily made and delivered to your table. My wife is quite fond of the Pad Thai, generally, her number one choice in a Thai restaraunt, whether we are in Asia or Canada. The service has improved at the restaurant. Kudos to the server....

The food is decent, but I couldn't eat my meal which was a 12$ salad. I had taken only 2 small bites and asked to have it wrapped up to take home. I was given the small 4x4 Styrofoam box to go and when I arrived home the salad inside was probably half the size of what was in my... More

This is a locally owned, family run Thai restaurant on the North end of town. I eat there fairly regularly, being just down the street from my work. I love the red and yellow curries. My husband likes the drunken noodles and pad thai the best. Yum!

This is a very small restaurant but it has huge flavor. The food is amazing. It takes a while to get your food because of the care they take making it but it's worth it! And being small (and very good) makes it a very busy place so I suggest you make a reservation or you may have to wait.

Boring, tasteless, and spice-less food. We had to ask for some hot sauce to get a Thai kick. We had the appy plate and dumplings. The dipping sauces were served in single-serve dishes, so no double-dipping. Service was ok. Food was ok'ish. Probably won't go back for a long time, if ever. Since I can't give a rating of two...

I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times and really enjoy it. I was recently there with my husband. We had the Thai calamari to start. The batter was light and the calamari very good! For an entree I had the spicy summer which was excellent. My husband had the chicken sweet and summer and was somewhat disappointed.... More

The food here tastes okay but it is VERY pricey for the portion size. I have been to numerous Thai restaurants on the island and they give double the amount of food for the same price. I think the prices went up last time since I went back and the portions are even smaller now. Also, the food comes out... More

I have lived in Nanaimo for several years now and I love this restaurant. Sometimes you'll have to wait a bit for the food,but it is definitely worth it. I am pretty aquainted with the owners, there is only one chef by the way which is why it takes a little while, although it is always fresh. My friends and... More
