Excellent food, good people but small and not fancy

This is a place to go for good Thai food not for ambiance. It is small so you might have to wait. Nothing fancy about the decor. But the food is excellent. Four of use shared an appy platter then ordered four dishes and fried bananas for dessert. Everything was very good and we enjoyed it... read more

Started out with the Chicken Satay Skewers and they were very tasty. For a main I opted for the Beef Drunken Noodles, wow, just the right amount of heat and the flavours were very intense. Although this was my first Thai food my date has actually been to Thailand and she said it is very authentic Thai. Service was great.... More

You should not try to go for dinner during peak times as there is often a waiting list. Once seated the friendly staff will serve you a fine meal of a large portion at a very reasonable price. We have never been disappointed at this restaurant, except when we arrive on Mondays to find it closed. Call ahead for their... More

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 outstanding. Their Steamed Dumplings appetizer, which sit upright,... 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...
