This is one of my favourite places in Halifax by far. I would say it's the best Thai food in the Maritimes. I have brought large groups of people with me there for various occasions and everyone has always left happy. I'm a big fan of the green curry

I don't understand the high ratings. I have eaten in Thai restaurants across Canada and the US and this is one of the worst. If you want good Thai food in Halifax, try Caabaa or Baan Thai. We had a reservation. Was not needed as we were told to seat ourselves. Service was ridiculously slow. My wife had to get... More

The soup didn't have much taste but I liked the authentic desert of sticky rice. The food was fresh and the portion copious. Not the best meal in Halifax but certainly a good value.

My girlfriend actually introduced me to this place. The only negative thing I can say, is that if you're trying to portion your food... This isn't for you, unless you have a lot of will power! (Which isn't really a bad thing). The portions are plentiful and the food is Fantastic.. If you like Thai food, give this place a... More

My husband and I went last Friday night without a reservation and the staff were able to seat us however you should have a reservation for this very busy restaurant. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu and suggested what we might like. She was right!!! excellent food...fairly large servings. Everyone was very pleasant and service very prompt.... More

I find this place offers a really good, fresh and clean, Thai food. Service staff are very friendly and price is reasonable. I highly recommend this place if you want Thai food that taste great and not dipped in oil.

Had a cozy night in and took a chance ordering Thai from here on a friend's recommendation. I have a few favourite Thai places at home, but the cashew chicken and spring rolls from this place knocked my socks off. Huge portions, prefect sticky rice, and loaded with chicken and crisp vegetables. Not too hot or too mild. Yum.

I visited Talay Thai based on the many good reviews. I was disappointed by the food which I did not find to be particularly tasty. I liked the crispy ness of the spring rolls but the veggies inside were very big chewy and tasteless. My Penang curry was very pedestrian not too spicy but not complex either the peanuts were...

This is my favorite restaurant in Halifax! I recommend the Lemongrass beef - it is very good. Eat in or take out
