Was recommended by friend who lives in Ottawa. Was not disappointed They certainly new there stuff when it came to my daughter who is gluten free. Their menu had green stars so she knew which ones to order. The food was plentiful and delicious Would recommend and go back

Talay Thai is a simple square room, in an old building on Bank Street one block north of the 417. You would not notice it, if you weren't looking for it. But you should look for it. This elegantly plain, straightforward Thai restaurant cooks up what is definitely the best Thai food in the city, and honestly maybe the best... More

Went to this Thai restaurant tonight, but food was average at best. Pad Thai was terrible. The noodles in the pad thai were cut up, like one might do for a child. Had eaten here a few times before & the food was good but will not go back again.

You will feel all the good flavours in your mouth. They serve great Thai food. The restaurant is quiet although it is located on a large avenue.

Good place for Thai food. Ordered the Pad Thai with tofu and spicy mango salad with a Thai iced tea. Pad Thai was good, over sauced and tofu was a bit chewy. The mango salad was delicious as was the iced tea. Again, good food, will go back again.

The kitchen is very consistent. The soups are amazing. The spicy seafood salad is great. So is the mango salad. Not a big fan of pad Thai but their curry dishes are great. The pepper vermicelli dish is great.

We went there on Monday night and there was a sign on the door saying as from today we will be closed every Monday. No indication of this on their website. Need to update your website,!
