“Red Wine Shrimp Is A Must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We live in Calgary and there is no Thai restaurant that we crave at home like we do Viphalay in Edmonton - especially their signature Red Wine Shrimp. Seriously, we could eat 4 orders of this alone but, as it turns out, everything else is done top-notch too. These people are food artisans with Thai food. They are hidden away in a little nondescript strip mall but it seems that the best food usually is. Service is extremely friendly, chatty and genuine. It's like sitting down at their own family dinner table - but with a really good cook. REALLY good.

Don't even think about it. Just go.

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

We had supper at the downtown location the other night. We were greeted immediately. Staff were friendly and helpful. We were seated quickly. The staff were knowledgeable about the menu items. The food was excellent. Very flavourful, fresh, and hot. A wonderful experience over all. Will definitely return.

“One of the best in Edmoton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We travel to Edmonton regularly for business and always try to eat at the top restaurants on Trip Advisor. During our last trip, we happened upon Viphalay and decided to walk-in and give it a try. We then ate the rest of our dinners here for the remainder of the trip. The food is so good. The flavours are crisp and interesting and well presented. The staff give good advice on level of spice and whether we had ordered the right amount of food. The cocktails, including mango red chilli pepper martini, were memorable. I will dream about the Roti Rolls that I had for dessert. You can dress very casually. We would drive a pretty far distance to come here for a meal.

“Never disappoints”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Love to sit outside on a beautiful day, nice patio.
Food is consistently good, service is always quick and efficient.
Not exactly fine dining, but great for a casual lunch or dinner.

“Tame but Flavourful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Although we sat on the patio, the inside was very nicely decorated. Menu is fairly simple which makes choosing easier and knowing the food will be fresh, which it was! Had the sampler which was very tasty. The brown curry was excellent, as was the lemon chicken. All in all, a pleasant meal.
