“Tom Yum is phenominal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The title says it all. We have dined in at the former downtown location with friends and had take out from the new Hwy 26 location. The flavor is world class.

“Tasty, tasty, tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013 via mobile

Excellent value and extremely tasty food. We had three different dishes - Chicken Green Thai Curry, King Shrimp Red Thai Curry with pineapple (yum) and a chicken stir fry. We all tried a bit of each and declared them all excellent. With a couple of desserts, the total bill came to just over $50 for three meals. They don't have a liquor licence but on this occasion the food didn't need anything to compliment it. It's on the western edge of Collingwood, just off First Street, so easy to find and get parked up at.

“True family operation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Family operated, with three generations of attendants, from kitchen to service. Very small restaurant with take-out and no liquor license. Very casual and friendly.
Simply great Thai food and reasonably priced.

“Always a favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

This small cafe style restaurant has a charming atmosphere, although it is not large, it is busy. The choice of a variety of dishes is almost overwhelming. We ate at the Geko when it was downtown, and discovered a great dish that we shared, we ordered it again, and the consistency and taste were as good as before. Prices are reasonable for all of their dishes.
