“Excellent food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Our children in Edmonton suggested we order takeout from this place for a family gathering. We ordered seven main dishes and two appetizers. Everything was just great. The exterior could be spruced up but the inside was clean and attractive. By the way, they did not open till 5:00pm, but we're cooking my orders and had it ready as requested by 4:30.

“Scary looking outside, but wait till ya get inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012 via mobile

Cracked windows and old worn looking place that I had heard of on another website. The reviews were good so we gave it a try. Once inside a clean place with fabulous food. After we had a few bites we ordered more to take home. We had gone at early lunch so quiet and great service. Pad Thai always a favorite.

“Great Thai and Lao Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

There a number of good Thai restaurants in Edmonton, but this one stands out for the quality of its food. I have eaten here four times in the last two years, and have never been disappointed. I am not a specialist in Thai cuisine, but I know what tastes good. The food here is simple and spectacular. The service is excellent. I have always been asked if I have special dietary needs. The restaurant is very small and unpretentious. Reservations are a must. The hours as of this writing are: Mon-Fri 11:30 to 2:00, 5:00-9:00, Saturday 5:00- 9:00. Sunday closed.

“NEVER GO HERE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2012

I ordered from Syphay for a large party I was hosting. We agreed on a price and time and that they would deliver. In addition to the food from Syphay I had catered out pizza for those at the party that didn`t like Thai Food.
When the food came, the delivers admitted that they didn`t bring enough rice but we were told if we wanted the rest we would have to drive to get it. This being a very important event (our engagment dinner) we didn`t know who to send to go 40 minutes away to get the rice. It turned out they didn`t bring enough of anything - we had only 50 people in attendance, ordered for 60 and ran out of EVERYTHING - I didn`t even get to eat. We called syphay about this and they denied doing anything wrong and then refused to call us back. Worst experience ever - there are so many better thai places in edmonton that are likely more ethical than this - go somewhere else!

“Great thai food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Have been to syphay twice now and cannot wait to go back. Outside of restaurant is rundown but inside is cozy and clean. Minced pork dish is spicy and full of flavor, will be ordering every time we go. Pad thai seemed to lack flavor but it didnt matter as we loved all other dishes we tried. Perhaps the intense flavor of the other dishes made the more subtle pad thai seem to lack flavor. Seafood dish with green curry is amazing. We also really enjoyed black bean chicken and hot basil seafood dish.
