Cashew Chicken

Staff bend over backwards to accomodate your every need. Not a fancy place but the food is excellent!

You will dream of Talay Thai once you've eaten here! Great for small groups - restaurant has limited table seating. I mostly do take-out! Pad Thai, Jasmine Rice, Spring Rolls, Cashew Chicken, Sweet & Sour Pineapple Chicken are easy picks to start with. All veggies are fresh. Prices are very reasonable and portions are generous.

I eat there 4 or 5 times a week. They have the most authentic, fresh, crispy, hot, non-heavy, Thai foods in the city. I bring guests and family there frequently and the food is "Es schmeckt hervorragend" (Absolutely delicious). Lunchtimes from 11;30 to 14:30 they have great lunch specials from $.9.50 plus tax and tip

This place has excellent thai curries, we will be returning here just for that. I ordered the vegetarian masaman curry and it had a lovely, warm coconut taste. My partner had the pad thai, also really good. The spring rolls were a bit of a disapointment though, they were greasy and did not have much flavour. The service was ok,... More

The service and food were both very good, and the price was fair by Halifax standards. The decor was plain and tables are set out in a basic rectangular space. Bring your own atmosphere.

I have heard wonderful things about this restaurant and must say overall was very good. After reading previous reviews on this site I felt much more comfortable in what to order. First we had the Spring Rolls and they were perfectly crispy and flavorful with a nice lite dipping sauce. Then we had the Chicken Pad Thai and the Cashew... More

Had satay could have had more spice/flavor. The chicken green bean and ginger dish I had was very good. They are moving a block over next month.Service was good.

This may sound harsh but the experience was horrible from the server being rude, throwing our cutlery on the table in a pile, the food was either over cooked or it was way over spiced. I have eaten at approximately 30 thai restaurants and this was the worst! Would not recommend period!!!

Staying just opposite so ate there last night - after checking TA of course! As others warned, we could not eat it all. Delicious light spring rolls - huge! Best Massamun beef - the sauce was perfect consistency & flavour. Chicken PadThai was perfect too, not gluggy, tender chicken, light noodles, good flavour. Wished we could have taken home the...

Wonderful Thai dishes and Chinese-style dishes (e.g., sweet and sour prawn) as well. Our server could not have been more attentive in describing dishes, providing extra rice and making sure everything was OK, without being intrusive. He made us feel like welcomed guests, which all top-notch restaurants do or, at the very least, strive to achieve.
