Visited the Talay looking for a good serve of vegetables with chilli and basil. The Talay did not disappoint serving a yummy stir fried veggie dish with tofu and without capsicum (aka bell peppers) as requested. The noodle dish we ordered was also with veggies and was terrific. The veggies were fresh with no hint of the softness frozen vegetables... More

There's lots of options on the menu and all are very tasty. The meals offer lots of protein and flavours in them. For authentic Thai food I recommend coming here. I had spicy chicken and it had great flavour. The dishes are cheap compared to most restaurants! I'd love to come here again.

This is some of the best Thai food I have ever had. I eat Thai in and Winnipeg many times and I was pleasantly surprised with how tasty food was here. I highly recommend. I ordered the chicken curry dishes.

This place has a impressive good looking decoration inside and out, very spacious for family, romance, business. Good reviews here etc. However, it was the worst Tai food I even had in my life. The service was friendly but they dont know their menu. No question was answered family orientation business. Coconut soup tasted like drinking coconut milk out from... More

Dined here on my last night in Halifax on a business trip. The raw spring rolls and papaya salad, usually my favorites, were a bit too sweet but not bad. Tom yam soup, another personal favorite, was good; service was just right and friendly; the atmosphere was unpretentious and functional. Overall a good experience, but not exceptional.

I came here in a group of 6 people, we were all from out of town, and it was the best meal we've had in Halifax so far. I ordered the fresh spring rolls to start and the red curry with beef. Everything was spot on. The rice paper wraps were super soft and fluffy and the hoisin sauce mixture... More

Have to admit I was very hungry so it did feel like a while between our order and being served but the food was really good. I would not call it "authentic" thai food per say but it did the job just fine. I like spicy food and it was just spicy enough. The plate size was a bit big,... More

A very nice visit. A lively place popular with young and old and which does a lively take out. The garlic prawns are to die for. Busy but has a lot of seating.

Was suggested by friends to have dinner there last week. Was my first visit. I had the chicken pad Tai and it was delicious. Would definitely eat there again and suggest it to friends.
