“Hit the spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

We went on a Sunday night, it was very quiet. I felt that the service was very friendly. We ordered our food, we ordered two dishes and thought about a third, so asked if that would be too much food. We were told yes, and the waitress was spot on, the portions were just about right, we could even fit in a dessert. The food was very tasty.

“Good Value Thai food in Banff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

As regular visitors to Banff we were very disapointed when, on our previous visit, we discovered that the excellent value Thai Grill restaurant had closed down. It was one of the few decent value indipendent restaurants in Banff. So we were keen to try this new restaurant during our last visit. We were happy to learn that the owners are the same people who used to run Thai Grill. They needed a bigger place.

The food is just as good as it used to be. Not amazing, but solid Thai food at a very reasonable price. If you fancy a break from Banffs mostly overpriced mediocre food offerings, try this place.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We ate here twice during a recent trip to Banff. The first night we ate here we enjoyed the 3-course dinner. The roti and Tom Kha soup appetizers were sooooo good! We each had panang curry-we eat thai a lot and are very picky...this was delicious! The dessert was also very good. We went back a second time just to have more roti and Tom Kha soup.
The prices were great, the portions are perfect (unless you like to gorge yourself or waste a lot) and service was very efficient.

“Good Thai in the Rockies...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We chose this restaurant for two reasons; $20/person for a 3 course meal & they claim to employ a head chef from Thailand. The mango salad, Panang curry, Pad Thai, deep fried ice cream & banana fritter were very good. The only disappointment was the bland tom yum soup. The total bill was $42 (food only). We wouldn't hesitate to return.
