We were in Toronto for a family wedding and our future daughter-in-law (a local) suggested 6 of us eat here on our first evening. We took a street car and bus and enjoyed travelling with other locals. On arrival we discovered a small shopfront with a queue outside of people wanting to eat. We found the owner who suggested we...

We were told about this restaurant by a family member and tried it out for Saturday lunch. The restaurant was packed but the waitstaff hustled and we didn't have to wait long for any of our courses. Our party of 4 tried a number of dishes recommended by the maitre d' -- excellent recommendations of expertly prepared dishes, some hot... More

When I visited this restaurant in Toronto last week, Khao San Road had moved to another restaurant called Nana at Queen Street. Now this place was tiny and cramped, with hardly an inch of space between two tables. Thankfully we had made a reservation and managed to get a table but simply had to deal with the space crunch. Coming... More

I have been here several times and recommended this restaurant to several people and they have all had an amazing experience. The wait times can be long BUT it is worth it for sure.

I am often a solo diner when I am travelling for work & KSR is perfect. Normally, I'm seated at the bar, I get excellent, speedy service! I normally can't choose between my favs so I get the papaya salad, fresh rolls & curry noodles, then I have leftovers!

Great Thai restaurant with an amazing selection of authentic food. It is fresh and delicious. The service is not always the best but the great food and amazing prices compensates for it.

Yes, you have heard that before; however; take it from someone who has travelled to Thailand. The food here is amazing and full of flavor. There is no dish that will disappoint. Be warned - this place does not take reservations - you will need to wait in line on a first-come first-served basis. This place is always got line... More

Used to be the best thai destination in Toronto until Chef Nuit left to start up Pai (which, btw, is better than KSR ever was, even in its heyday). As time goes on, KSR errs closer and closer to generic North American thai food. Something things you just can't learn.

Their pad thai will impress you. The taste in your mouth will make you travel! A very pleasant experience, i hope that the new location will allow a quieter experience and that they will remain at the same standards!

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
