Finally....I found a restaurant in Nova Scotia that made my meal spicy as requested! I get tired of asking for extra, extra Thai spicy hot and ending up with medium. The food was delicious and flavorful. Granted, I did have to add some chiles to it...but they had real chiles...so I was happy! Nice variety on the menu and the... More

I live in Ontario and have been to many many Thai & Vietnamese restaurants, but this one is by far the best. My favourite dishes are the red & green curries & the pad Thai. There is another location at 984 Cole Harbour Rd, Dartmouth. I look forward to the next time I visit Nova Scotia.

I have been going to the Talay thai restaurant for the past 3 years. They have amazing vegetable spring rolls- just the perfect size and neatly done. I love th ebasil chicken and the papaya salad is just so delicious!

Just came back from Talay Thai for lunch, great menu and reasonable quantity with good quality food. Far superior than Chaba Thai which is very oily.

We ordered Ginger Beef, curry Chicken, cashew vegetable. All the dishes were fabulous. We have eaten here before and will do so again. The waitress we had was very sweet. The prices are very reasonable.

Every time I've been here the food is delicious. The hardest part is deciding what to get. Best if you are with a few people and can share a couple of dishes. Lunch combos are also great.

Friends introduced us to Talay Thai a year ago. We were amazed at how they cater to Celiacs. Food is scrumptious, fresh and veggies are crisp. Portions are very generous. Great atmosphere and very friendly staff. We always work a meal at Talay Thai into our trips to Halifax now.

Another restaurant with baffling reviews. Mediocre food served with disdain. Thai food should be vibrant and fresh. This was low quality and cheap ingedients cooked with any love whatsoever.

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
