We came to Talay Thai for dinner before a concert, and had called to ask if we could be served quickly. They were very accommodating! We had stir friend mixed vegetables in peanut sauce (delicious!) and spicy noodles with vegetables (spicily delicious!), and the food was excellent! For dessert, we shared a delicious coconut creme brulee that was oustanding! The... More

Food was outstanding. Wine list was poor, but not unexpected. Food made up for poor wine list. Flavours were rich and opulent, curries were truly outstanding along with sticky rice and cashew chicken. I would highly recommend...although not very conveniently located to downtown.

I absolutely love Talay Thai. I have been going there since it first opened and have never been disappointed. The service is always fast and extremely friendly.

LUNCH: I Ordered 44. Jungle Curry 14.95 Traditional hot & spicy curry with vegetable and choice of chicken or beef ( without coconut milk ). Bloody beef was so hard to chew(where's the beef?), not worth $14.95.

As a local have been many times and each time it's been absolutely excellent. From the friendly service, to presentation to of course the food itself. Definitely on the Red Curry bandwagon... My only complaint is that my staples (coconut shrimp soup, Veggie wrap, Red Curry and spicy rice noodles) are so good that I never get the opportunity to... More

Talay Thai is located very close to where I work and we order for take out usually every 2 weeks from the lunch menu! The Yellow Curry is the best I've ever had, soooo delicious! The service is fast and friendly and when you eat in, the atmosphere is lovely! I would highly recommend!

The food is thoughtfully presented and the service is friendly, efficient and always hits the right notes. The owners care about details here! It's great to have a neighbourhood place that combines casual elegance with an inspired menu. The food is fresh, delicious and the... More

I love Thai food, try to find a Thai restaurant any city I go. This place lived up to it's Trip Advisor reviews. Good food, not pricy, yet comfortable surroundings. And lots to do on Bank Street. Would definitely go back.
