I was in the mood for Thai as I waited to head to the airport to catch my flight. So, I stopped in and enjoyed the chicken fried rice with a cucumber salad. They were both outstanding, huge pieces of chicken and plenty of vegetables and egg in the rice. The cucumber salad was equally good with huge chunks of... More

Convenient location with plenty of metered parking around. Very clean setting and the food is authentic Thai. Lunch was not too slow either.

We had a dinner here last night and the plates we choose were not bad: catfish with an oyster sauce and calamari and prawns with a coconuts pineapple spicy sauce for my wife. Food is good and holds a good flavour. The ambiance is pleasant and theme based. I suggest to stop here for a Thai lunch.

Stopped here at the tail end of a business trip. The location is right near the airport which was very convenient. The food was good, the service was quick and attentive. I had the squid salad which was great and had just the right amount of spice and the ginger chicken with brown rice which was very good. Stop here... More

This is our "go to" place in the local neighborhood for tasty Thai food. At times we'll drop in for lunch (several combo lunch specials), or for dinner. The restaurant has been at the corner of Grand and S. Linden for quite some time. Lots of parking on the street. The people there are very friendly, and the service is... More

I am not big on Thai food but my husband is so we went. I am so glad we did. This was the best Thai food I have ever eaten (my husband agrees as well).

We enjoyed the meal very much. I had very tasty beef slices with mango, my boyfriend had vegetables and shrimp. White wine was excellent and the restaurant was nicely decorated, in a modern way.

Nice decor, acceptable food but nothing to write home about. My eggplant shrimp dish was good but had too much oil. My colleague's "spicy" tofu dish was not spicy at all, but this was addressed via some condiments. The red wine was decent. TIP: The veggie spring roll was fresh and tasty

Good selections. If you're vegan ask if the dish has fish sauce. They were able to accommodate us though and we were satisfied especially with Tom Yum soup and pad Thai.

The food was delicious and authentic, with generous portions. The staff was very friendly and both my husband and I enjoyed our meals: salmon with chili garlic sauce, and hot chili paste scallops. We also had the Tom Kha Gai soup with shrimp, which came to our table on fire and which was delicious.
