Great Thai food in Nanaimo

Small restaurants like Kasira preserve the quality of Thai traditional cooking. Also not in a very busy area it was quite busy on a... read more

Love the food here. Always consistently good. Service is fast and efficient. I just wish they didn't close between lunch and dinner.

So glad we stopped in. While at the beach we asked the locals where to go for Thai. Kasira was the first choice of everyone! Superb service, pleasant décor and great food. The Pad Thai was well seasoned, spiced, prepared and presented. We'll be heading back on our next trip to the Nan!

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

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 thoroughly. The serving sizes... 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
