Stopped in for lunch, was packed. Had the Thai Green Curry Chicken with Jasmine Rice, comes with soup and spring role. Friend had same. Portions were good, decor is nice. Nice option in Richmond Hill.

I would have liked nothing more to have seen this restaurant do well. Restoran Malaysian is very good across the street - but costs more. However, after having lunch with some colleagues here - the food is not the best Thai food around. There will be a lot of food for a low price - but the quality of food... More

I went for dinner with a friend of mine a few days ago after tennis. Ordered Tom yum soup, Red curry with beef and Thai basil chicken and rice bowls. Tom yum gung soup was excellent and bang on with well balanced sour flavor from lemongrass. Really took me back to Bangkok outdoor market and Chiang Mai trip four years... More

My family and I went to this restaurant over the past weekend. This was our first time going. The food, environment, decor, and service were awesome. We ordered quite a lot of food and we were two adults and two kids. The food portions was huge that we ended packing some home. We ordered shrimp fried patty, fried spring rolls,... More

Went there twice - lunch on weekday and dinner on the weekend. Both time the service was good and fast. Peanut chicken with spinach is really good, as well as wonton soup. Prices are very reasonable. Definitely will go back and recommend it for anyone: family, couples, friends gathering.

My favourite by far is the Tom Yum Noodle Soup with chicken. Love the flavour, good quality and great soup to have on a cold day. Delicious!

Can't comment on all dishes, except for the ones we had. If this is an indicator of the rest d the menu so be it. Coconut soup was good and tasty. Fried rice was run of the mill. Pad Thai was like any other chain's; we won't name names. The main dishes were saturated with sauce to the extreme and... More

I visited the restaurant with my wife and a friend. We tried a good number of dishes and the feeling was mixed. On starters: The Grilled Pork, Satay Beef and Satay Chicken were served still hot which was good, but the beef and chicken were a bit tough and dry. We also tried the Grilled Prawns. At almost $9 each,... More

My family and I are regular customers at this place. Super clean, friendly staff, excellent menu. The food is always fresh and absolutely delicious. We've had many items on the menu and we're never disappointed. Definitely the best Thai restaurant in Richmond Hill. Best in GTA in our experience.
