A test of patience~

Recently a group of friends and I decided to try this place - the previous review about the 'stressed out owner' is a perfect description of what to expect. It took a really long time to get our food but it was dreamy good - we all loved our appetizers and main dishes - so much that I'm going... read more

Came by Hamilton on the way back to Toronto from Niagara, and chanced upon this Thai restaurant. Firstly, the decor is really well done with loads of statuettes and ornaments that came straight from Thailand. We ordered a Chicken Red Curry, a Glass Noodle Salad, Morning Glory salad (as in the recommended list) and a Phad see ew for 4... More

Went with a large group (20+) who needed somewhere to eat last minute on a Thursday evening. We filled up 3 or 4 large tables. They weren't expecting us but we were served quickly and treated well. The menu has quite a bit to offer and a good variety. There are also suggestions to help ordering like "not recommended with... More

I have come to Thai Memory more than a dozen times over the last 8 years. My most recent visits however, were marked by excessively long wait times (including a takeout order) and overall wait service that did not match the atmosphere and food quality. My friends and I discovered this gem when we first moved to Hamilton for university.... More

We have been here serval times and brought people that love it. A real replica of an authentic Thai eating place in Hamilton. The food great and very authentic. The dishes we had were the BBQ red duck curry, Thai Memory chicken, ginger chicken, Coconut shrimp. The service can be a bit slow as the owner is the waiter most... More

Bad service with horrible treatment, aggressive even. Shocking. You've been warned. If it wasn't for horrible customer service then i might have stayed but i left before i could figure out what to eat. it's not about the food, but know that the service here borders on abusive, and that's no joke.

I almost don't want to write the review and have my favourite little restaurant get busier. If you're looking for authentic cuisine in a quiet atmosphere with beautiful artifacts surrounding you, this is the place. The food is fantastic with many choices and levels of "heat." The owners take great pride in what they have established and they should. A... More

When you first walk in, it almost looks closed... because there is very little light. There is an unusual ambiance to this place, and it seemed more like a church than a restaurant. There was only ONE waiter in the entire place, and even though when my group came in there was only ONE other group there... it took an... More
