“Love this restaurant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A very interesting decor and the food is very good, well prepared Thai cuisine. Prices are only slightly higher than anywhere else in the city but overall a very nice experience. Will definitely be back.

“a really nice re-introduction to Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

A problem that Thai food suffers from is that it's so popular as take-out, which means few people know how delicate its tastes are. This restaurant is a great place to go to be re-introduced. It's quite fancy so probably best for a special evening. The menu explains the history of Thai food, which is a nice way to show a little authenticity and build up food literacy. The servings are ample. The cooking is first rate. The service is fine. The woman at the door was super welcoming. I tried the Thai beer, which was light but good. Good range of spiciness offered, so no problem there. What's not to try?

“Great lunch buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I've been coming here for lunches for years, and it never disappoints. The buffet doesn't have a huge number of choices, but the food is always great. The noodle bar in particular is fantastic. The price is reasonable, and the service is good. A favourite of those working in the hospital district.

“Supreme Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

(+)'s: Supreme Thai food. Nice settings: original wood work and water features. Fresh flowers on every table and quiet background music. Relaxed yet efficient service. Don't miss lunch buffet for 16$: nice selection even for vegans! Good cocktails.
(-)'s: Dinner menu and drinks are slightly over priced. Try to come for lunch but make sure to make a reservation.

“Beautifully appointed, food average and expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is by far the nicest (appearance wise) Thai restuarant that I've ever been to. Service was excellent - very attentive wait staff. The food was no better than any other Thai restaurant in Toronto, and the servings are smaller and much more expensive. I prefer Sukhothai, Khao San Road and even Go For Thai.
