I discovered Thai Memory online by searching for restaurants near Hamilton Place Theatre, where we parked for the evening. Upon arriving, the restaurant looked dark inside (open or not?), but went inside to check it out. Turns out the lights were off except at the 2 tables where people sat, presumably to save energy. The menu had plenty of suitable... More

We are always excited to go to Thai Memory as it is some of the best Thai food in the city. On this occasion we visited to have a quiet meal on a weeknight, restaurant wasn't too busy and we were promptly greeted and seated at a spacious table. Our waitress took our order and asked how spicy we would... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and love the food. Decided to go Saturday night, drove 1 hr. to get there. Service was terrible and the owner started yelling at his new waitress. We received our appetizers and soup which were excellent after waiting quite some time. Other people still waiting. Food orders started getting mixed up... More

I'm not sure if it's purely coincidental, but the previous reviewer painted a rather grievous outlook of the restaurant. On the same day, my girlfriend and I arrived at the restaurant after a cursory research yielded relatively positive reviews. The hall was semi-occupied with patrons and the owner took our orders within reasonable time of sitting down. All was going... More

Well, two strikes in a row deserves a blunt review. We've been here numerous times and I believe it's the best Thai food in Hamilton. Very authentic. BUT - the previous time we went we sat at our table, ignored for 30 minutes. So got up and left. We hesitated to go back and entered an almost empty restaurant. Owner... More

Food is okay, but part of what makes an enjoyable dining experience stems from service, and that restaurant needs improvement regarding service. The waiter got angry at a customer and started swearing in public. I was at the counter paying the bill and he clearly displayed his anger towards other innocent customers. Like other reviews for this restaurant, this owner/waiter... More

Very interesting and authentic décor complements the amazing food! Spicy chicken spring rolls are to die for! Love the food, have been going for years. You can also bring your own wine (corkage fee applies).

If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in a restaurant in Thailand, without the airline ticket, look no further. The exotic decor already tells you that this is going to be an interesting night. Then you may get to meet the eccentric and entertaining owners. But you came for the food..right? Now I haven't come to... More

Sadly, the dining experience was marred by the stressed owner/waiter and a loud shouting match with other customers. Seems to be a recurring theme at Thai Memory, judging by other posters. Not worth going back because of that. And turn on some lights! Place is very dark inside. Food may be decent, but the dining experience leaves a lot to... More
