I have ordered from here for delivery or pick up multiple times and never disappointed. I have always either gotten Pad Thai or Drunken Noodle, both have been fantastic. The servings are large size and worth the price. Either enough if I'm really hungry or enough for leftovers the next day. Only downside is that there have been two times... More

This restaurant has a comprehensive Thai menu reflecting the full spectrum of Thai dining. Both my host and I chose Pad Thai, a Thai noodle based dish, which here also included chicken, shrimp, tofu and peanuts with a heavy hit of tamarind. The dish was beautifully served with a wedge of fresh lime. The portion was quite large. Our server... More

I love the food at Northern Thai. It's delicious. I'm vegan, and they're happy to modify any of the dishes to suit your needs, which is great. The staff are all very friendly. I have to say, it's not the most attractive looking building from the outside. The first time I went to Northern Thai, I was with a friend... More

I went here two days in a row, once with my father and the other time with my boyfriend. Both times myself and my guest ordered the Pad Thai - it was fantastic! They give you plenty of chicken and tofu throughout the dish, but only 2-3 pieces of shrimp. When I went the second time, I got them to... More

I used to really enjoy Northern Thai, but the last 3 times I've been there I've been very disappointed. The server is new, and perhaps the chef as well. A couple of times my food was either WAY TOO spicy, or bland. I was there yesterday for lunch, and again was disappointed with the food, so I will probably not... More

I went there based on the recent "best thai food" reviews. Now I doubt if I had a different chef or those people get paid for such a high review. Papaya salad is really spicy. Siamese beef is hard and salty. I am disappointed.

We will definitely be going back to Northern Thai when we are back in Kitchener. The food was terrific. Freshly made spring rolls, fresh mango salad, delicious beef curry and pad thai. It was a wonderful meal. The service was a little slow but it was friendly.

I had the cashew shrimp here a while back and really enjoyed it. The noodles are also very good. It's a small place with a nice comfy atmosphere. I've been here quite a few times and out of all the other Thai places I've been to in the area, this is the best. The satay chicken is also very good!

- Dirty spoons and forks given to eat with. - Food clearly not freshly made. - Food on the sweet side and not "thai" - Hair in food. - Dirty plates and teapot given to eat and drink from.

This place is probably the best place to get Thai food. I always get the basil beef and I've never been disappointed. Even writing this makes me hungry.
