We found this place because of other good reviews. I don't know if we ordered the wrong things, but we weren't impressed at all. It's a small place with an average sized menu. The lemongrass soup with shrimp was tasty, albeit a little salty. My husband and I shared a chicken and pepper dish which was kind of bland. We... More

This is a small restaurant on the fringes of China Town in Calgary. We stopped here for lunch on Canada Day. We were the only people in the restaurant but that didn't detract from the enjoyment. My wife had a stir fry and I had the green curry. Both were excellent. We really enjoyed our meals. Having been to Thailand,... More

The curry was delicious with the coconut rice. The staff was very friendly to our entire family - including our kids. We definitely recommend this!

We had a fantastic Thai dinner on Monday night, but it was lonely. Unfortunately typical Calgary, downtown empties out at the end of the work day so we were the only ones in the restaurant, so don't be surprised it has nothing to do with the food or service. If you are looking for great Thai food at a reasonable... More

The best authentic Thai cuisine in Calgary and also southern Alberta. There are many dishes must be tried eg. Tom Kha soup, fish cake, green curry, deep fried fish with sweet and sour sauce, etc. Reasonable price! Just 2 blocks from C-Train.

I can't say enough good things about the great food and high quality of service provided. The stuffed wings were oh so tasty! The bonus was they have a corkage fee so we took our own bottle of wine. This is undoubtably the best Thai food restaurant in the city.

Thai Bistro is located at the foot of the Center Street Bridge in Chinatown. Top notch curries and the best Pad Thai in town. Comfortable setting and courteous staff. Hosted a dinner party for 10 at Thai Bistro recently. The food and service was top notch.

We've never actually eaten in the restaurant, but we order take out/delivery very often. It is by far our favorite Thai food in the city. Reasonable prices and great taste. They can sometimes be a little heavy handed on the spice so err on the side of caution with their spice scale if you're not a spicy food type.

On vacation from the UK found this place via trip advisor and checked it out as we wander through china town. Went in for a meal Sunday night and got a table without having to make a reservation. The place was about half full but the phone was ringing off the hook for takeaway orders. Service was fast and friendly... More
