“Great Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Came across this resturant via Urban Spoon and was 96% recommended. We made reservations for 9pm and attended shortly after 9pm. We were welcomed by the friendly server who seated us at a table of two.

The place seems like it was converted from a house the outside looks nice, up a few short steps up and you have option to go right to the resturant or up some more stairs to another resturant. The resturant is very clean. After been seated we were brought two glasses of ice water which I always find is a nice touch vs "can I get you drinks to start" a short 10-15min walk from the fairmount queen elizabeth the water definitely quite refreshing. Shortly after we order some spring rolls to start which were nice and crispy and the side of their chilly sauce if you prefer a nice kick it sure goes nicely with the food.

For the mains we order the pad thai with chicken, and the red curry which was a great suggestion by our server because we couldn't decide between red or yellow curry. He well explained the taste difference between the two and we decided to go with the red curry served with side steamed rice.

The food was excellent and I have definitely add Phayathai to my list of resturants to stop at when in Montreal again. The resturant I found was fairly priced for the type of food. It was the perfect portion of food for two to share.

Came here with a group of 5 and everyone said the food was great. This was my first time eating Thai food and I'll definitely eat it again.

“Excellent meal!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014 via mobile

Saturday night, full house, no reservations. Owner was accommodated us without trouble, ensuring we got the next free table. Food was fresh, flavourful, and perfectly spicy. We shared red curry with shrimp, crispy noodles with vegetables, and an order of fresh rolls for an appetizer. Service quick, unobtrusive, impeccable. We both decided this was hands down the best Thai meal we've had in a while, perhaps ever. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great meal in downtown Montreal. A tad pricey but worth it for the quality.
