I met a coworker here for lunch for the first time today. It doesn't look like much on the outside and I was a bit skeptical, but the restaurant is cute and inviting on the inside. As soon as we sat down we were brought a pot of tea, which was welcome considering it is -20 outside! We ordered the... More

I came into Northern Thai at 8:55 pm on a Monday night because I thought they closed at 10:00 pm. They told me that they would serve me and I could eat in if I wanted to but I kindly declined and got my food to go (however I really appreciated the offer). I went back to my hotel and... More

Don't let the construction out front deter you. They're open. Good dining experience, we ordered apps and mains. Everything was done right. Service was a bit lacking. But I am finding that the case in Thai places. The food made up for it. We we will be back.

I drove by this restaurant daily on my way home from work and honestly thought "what a dive". But when I started reading reviews about it, I thought I would give it a go. Stepping through the door, I found myself in a quaint unpretentious yet inviting eatery. I was pleasantly surprised. The food and service was excellent! It was... More

Heard that this resturant was ranked 18th in the KW area so thought I would check it out. When we walked in we had to seat ourselves and the waitress was very quick to take our drink orders. GETTING the drinks, on the other hand took forever (water and ice tea). The "green tea" was horrendous. They use a cheap... More

This used to be a decent restaurant, but not anymore! In the past couple months, they served me cashew chicken, sometimes without cashews and sometimes without chicken! I kept giving it another chance because it is family owned and very close to my work. Then they started serving up old food, that was clearly made hours ago and reheated. Today,... More

Nice place with plenty of seating. Came here for lunch and food was quite good and portions were abundant. Prices were very reasonable as well. Parking is an issue, but most people who come here work in the area . No AMEX charge cards taken here. Would definitely come here again!

My husband and I are often eating at the Northern Thai. We operate a local B&B and we always have positive feedback from guests we send there as well.

Excellent food and service! Everything we had on the menu was just amazing. Service was very prompt and friendly. Portions are large, just make sure you know what you're getting into when you ask the food to be spicy! Their spice level isn't like your typical Canadian restaurant where Tabasco is considered suicide lol. If you ask for something to... More
