Possibly to adjust to French or American (?) flavours, even the spicy dishes could have used some more chillies. The food was nice, but nowhere near authentic Thai food. Good service and a nice setting of the tables (not so crammed as at some neighbouring restaurants) still makes it worth going there.

First of all, service was great. As far as the food - worst Pad Thai I ever have eaten (and I've eaten in many places). No flavor, kept adding sriracha sauce (which is all they had - no chili paste) to try to give it some flavor. And no peanuts in the dish either, which is a must for pad... More

We discovered this place about two thirds of the way through our 9 day vacation and ate there twice. We had the chicken pad thai, spring rolls and the chicken dish with tamarind. The food is fresh and they give large portions. You can easily share one dish, but share two and take home the leftovers. The service was very... More

We ate there 2 of the 4 nights we stayed near the village. We had the spring rolls and the cashew chicken/noodles which were both very good, not super spicy. We each got our own meal the first time and took the leftovers back to the room. The second time we shared and it was more than enough for the... More

If you are looking for authentic Thai, do not eat here. If you just want something different than French bistro-fare, give it a try. We had the spring rolls, a shrimp dish and a beef dish. The food was fresh and tasty and the beef and shrimp were cooked properly.

This restaurant offers areally nice change of pace to all the other food options. Pad Thai with shrimp was excellent! Green curry with chicken very good and sweet and sour chicken and pork were fine. Huge portions! So don't let the prices scare you off...you can share or take the yummy leftovers home. If you're here for a week or... More

Tai Chi is one of half a dozen fine restaurants conveniently located in a courtyard just off the main road in Orient Bay village. Since all of the restaurants front onto the court you can have relaxed outdoor dining without any road noise. I had the Pad Thai Beef and my wife had the Pad Thai chicken. Both were delicious....

Nice atmosphere, good thai. Did not see sushi on menu. Service was a little off, people came in after us but were served before us. We enjoyed our curry thai, price was fare. Ordered appetizer of chicken satay that was less than average.

My wife and I love Thai food and try it everywhere we travel. We are kind of snobs when it comes to good Thai. I would have to say other than the Thai beef salad, just ok, the food was great! Four of us ordered different dishes and shared. Large portions, great service, excellent food in a super cute setting.... More
