Best Thai place in Kitchener

I frequent this place when my partner is away (allergic to peanuts). I have tried their curries and pad thai and both are extremely delicious! Nice service as well. Definitely worth the great prices they charge for amazing food!

This is a small hidden gem in Kitchener but it is well worth the effort to find it. We like Thai food and this is some of the best we have tasted here and in Thailand. The menu is varied with lots of things to try. The helpings are large and they never seem to care if you share a... More

Terrific food...everything we've tried. Dining in you definitely get a good value, on pick up orders it's hit or miss. Sometimes you get the same as dine-in size, the majority of the time you do not. Unfortunate as it's excellent fare!

A friend took me here. We had several food, but the one that I remember the most was the tom yum soup. The sourness and the spiciness was amazing. I recommend everyone to try their tom yum.

The surrounding businesses are a bit gritty but don't be fooled as this place is the real deal. If you're going for lunch, get there early as it fills up quick. Great food served hot and flavourful. Only quibble - they could definitely upgrade their bathroom!

I always eat at Northern Thai when I'm in Kitchener on business. It's a hard-to-beat combination of pleasant surroundings, reasonable prices, good service, and excellent food.

I'm staying at the Walper Hotel, and Max at the front desk recommended Northern Thai. It is 1.5 blocks from the hotel, and located in a nice area for an after-dinner walk along Church Street. The restaurant is clean, well lit, and very unassuming. The service was prompt upon entering, but somewhat unpolished. The food ... perfect. The Tom Yum... More

Every time I am in Kitchener visiting a good friend, we eat here. I have never been disappointed, and I eat quite a bit of Thai food. Their food is very well prepared. Love their curries, pad thai, coconut chicken soup. My friend swoons over their mango salad. I also love the ultra modest surroundings - clean, charming, unpretentious, but... More

Pleasant service and decent food, but the name suggests that one might be able to actually eat Northern Thai dishes here. That is not the case. Competent, even tasty standards abound but hte only "northern" dish was Chiang Mai Curry - Gang-Nuer and it was not a standout. Not that I'd not go back, rather I'd explore other options first.

I have gone here many times and the food is always awesome. Best Thai curry in the area, great value and friendly staff. Can't believe this place isn't always packed? You have to eat here, you love it!
