Awesome and intimate.

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

Many people come here just for the soup. I am not one of those people. I usually follow up with one of their entrées, and a cup of tea. Of course, I do have the soup every time I visit. But that's not all I have.

not a big restraunt but the food has big flavours. Had many of the dishes and have no complaints at all. By far is the crispy duck. I love it. It the typical strip mall atmosphere nothing fancy. Price is about par with other thai restraints.

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
