“makes me wanna go back to Thailand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

I lived in Thailand for 2 years and this is as authentic as it gets in Toronto. The staff were really friendly and the atmosphere was nice and relaxed :))

“Great Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

This is our go to spot for Thai food. Relatively good selection on the menu. My two favourite things are their hot and sour soup and Basil Chicken ( spicy or not) served with steamed Jasmin rice. Although they have other great things on the menu. They also do delivery or take out, sometimes that's convenient if you live in the neighborhood.

The place is super clean and the staff friendly and courteous. Not fancy but that's reflected in the price.

“Bland beyond belief.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

My husband & I chose Bus Thai based on reviews and easy locale. We were severely disappointed in the entire experience. Bland is the kindest word I can find to describe one of the worse Thai meals I have ever eaten. Soggy breaded duck basil, tasteless Tom yum and unremarkable service. I regretted our choice!
Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere for your Thai fix.

“Great Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

The newly renovated restaurant is welcoming and pleasant. The service was flawless and the food absolutely delicious. We had the (Tom Yum) Lemon Grass Soup, very very good. I ordered a stir fry with shrimp and my husband ordered a mango & chicken dish. The portions were just right and the quality of the food was superb.
