The outside isn't the most appealing but when you walk inside, its very authentic and when you taste the food you will always go back for more! The staff is always friendly & service is always consistently good.

You cannot beat Spicy Thai for authentic Thai food, outstanding service and relaxing ambience. It's no wonder this place is busy every night of the week. Try the coconut soup for something very different! The restaurant is located in a quiet, slightly run-down, off the main grid location of Saint Catharines. Driving there, you will wonder if you're in the... More

My husband and i met his brother and our sister-in-law here for dinner a couple weeks ago. It was our first time trying Spicy Thai and we really enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is larger inside than it looks like it would be and we sat up in the bamboo room on pillows. We felt like it was a real... More

Wonderful restaurant. Can make most items vegan. This is one of the better Thai restaurants I've been to.

Went on a Saturday night with no reservation (good idea to get one). Small lobby was full of people waiting (was a large group vs our table for 2). We were actually seated quickly but the table was right by the entrance so it was very noisy. Waitress was good, not great but she was very busy. We got our... More

Thai food is my favorite. Tried lot in Thailand and Hong Kong. The taste here is not as really Thai food at all. It mixed with too much sweet. Feel like western food

Excellent foods, value and service. We were there with 4 of us. Started with the family size bowl of Yom Tum soup with shrimp. Spicy, lots of shrimp, excellent soup. Pad Thai, chicken green curry both very good. Had chicken Ramma(?spelling) a dish I have never had in the many Thai places I have been. Very good. There was lots... More

This restaurant in St. Catharines, Ontario is worth the trip if you are nearby! Our waitress was superb and offered great suggestions. The dishes were prepared beautifully and only the freshest ingredients were included. We were obviously "out of towners", but that didn't matter, from beginning to end, a wonderful dinner was had by all. One tip: do make a... More
