Every time we go amazing food!! Family owned and operated and it doesn't matter the day or the cook, same amazing service and same amount of food. Prices are very reasonable and for a family of 4 it's under $50 for us! Place is small and kind of hidden but once u try it, none of that matters! Do yourself... More

A recent visit to Northern Thai exceeded my expectations. We were warmly greeted at the door and shown to our seats. The restaurant was very clean and had a pleasant decor. We ordered the crispy tofu as an appetizer and really enjoyed them. We then split a Pad Thai which was quite large and very yummy. Prices are very reasonable... More

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!
