“Slow sevice, tiny portions. ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 via mobile

We came here twice in two days and both times it took long minutes till the first contact.
First time we could not eat simce the kitchen was already closed but it took atleast 7/8 mins to get aware of.
Second time we succeeded I wish - however - we wouldnt have.
The portions were really tiny the salad as saulty as I could barely eat it. It's not a surprise this place is half empty saturday night compared to the full ones surraunded where even queues are seen waiting for a table.
What IS surprising the avh rate this restaurant has on trip advisor.

“Yummy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014 via mobile

Came here for dinner after searching trip advisor for good restaurants near our hotel. Glad we did as the food was great. Also had a cocktail which was good. Liked the tapas style dishes - had 4 dishes and rice between two and that was just enough for us.

“#1 for a reason”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Amazing food, great service, great price. Well deserved number 1 ranking. A must try for anyone in Toronto. Be warned - it gets very busy very fast so it's best to book ahead. Staff know everything about every meal, very traditional Thai food, and well equipped bar.

“Amazing flavours!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I have tried a few different Thai restaurants and this has by far been the best. After living in Thailand for a year I am always searching for the best Thai. The Spicy Green Papaya salad made extra spicy was perfect and the Kow Niow (sticky rice was great) finally able to just get sticky rice with no coconut milk added. The Lapp Moo also had an amazing taste. The only downside was the Panang Curry with Tofu, it was far too thin and the flavour just was not there and lacked a togetherness with the vegetables like I was eating two completely separate dishes. Service was nice and really enjoyed the experienced will be back again for the som tom and to try some other dishes.
