MY Best Thaï Restaurant in Quebec City

My wife and I have tried several "bring your own wine" types of restaurant and now we end up always there! A lot of choices (table d'hôte), it's cheap, it's very tasty, what else do you want? I strongly recommend the thai soup and the spring rolls! Best in town!

Service was pleasant. Poor food watered down Panang which hadn't seen a peanut and lots of onion filler. Chicken basil had no basil. Disappointed after reading the reviews.

One of the best restaurants for Thai food. This a gem in Quebec City. I recommend this to anyone who wants a good authentic Thai dish.

We didn’t know what to expect before arriving, but Banlao is a gem in the city where you don’t usually see much ethnic food. We went there during lunch and the place was packed, mainly with local Quebecer. We were actually attended by the owner who was one of the sweetest persons we met in the trip. She took the... More

food is very very tasty and service is always smiling and friendly. Portiona are big and you can bring your own wine. only bad point is that sometimes the place is a bit crowded and noisy, but thats ok for the fact that the price is so low!

Panang curry is my favorite, so I rate the Thai restaurants that I frequent with the degree of the flavor of the mentioned above dish. I asked for mildly hot, well it was rather sweet. For Americans traveling in Quebec, you should ask for the medium to even feel the tang. You can Bring Your Own Bottle which is a... More

We detoured off the highway enroute to Montreal with the intent of avoiding the fast food traps and enjoy a real meal with the kids. Unfortunately, we found this restaurant does not live up to the great reviews on Trip Advisor, which frankly, is rare. We were promptly seated by a polite but sullen server. One of the waitresses reached... More
