“Love this restaurant!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

A very interesting decor and the food is very good, well prepared Thai cuisine. Prices are only slightly higher than anywhere else in the city but overall a very nice experience. Will definitely be back.

“a really nice re-introduction to Thai food”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

A problem that Thai food suffers from is that it's so popular as take-out, which means few people know how delicate its tastes are. This restaurant is a great place to go to be re-introduced. It's quite fancy so probably best for a special evening. The menu explains the history of Thai food, which is a nice way to show a little authenticity and build up food literacy. The servings are ample. The cooking is first rate. The service is fine. The woman at the door was super welcoming. I tried the Thai beer, which was light but good. Good range of spiciness offered, so no problem there. What's not to try?

“Great lunch buffet”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I've been coming here for lunches for years, and it never disappoints. The buffet doesn't have a huge number of choices, but the food is always great. The noodle bar in particular is fantastic. The price is reasonable, and the service is good. A favourite of those working in the hospital district.

“Supreme Thai”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

(+)'s: Supreme Thai food. Nice settings: original wood work and water features. Fresh flowers on every table and quiet background music. Relaxed yet efficient service. Don't miss lunch buffet for 16$: nice selection even for vegans! Good cocktails.
(-)'s: Dinner menu and drinks are slightly over priced. Try to come for lunch but make sure to make a reservation.

“Beautifully appointed, food average and expensive”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is by far the nicest (appearance wise) Thai restuarant that I've ever been to. Service was excellent - very attentive wait staff. The food was no better than any other Thai restaurant in Toronto, and the servings are smaller and much more expensive. I prefer Sukhothai, Khao San Road and even Go For Thai.
