If you live in or are just visiting the South Coast you MUST stop by this hidden delight. This restaurant gives a whole new meaning to "Thai Food". The service is superb ,the prices are reasonable, and the food is over the top! Every meal is a real delight. We go there as often as we can and take great delight in "ordering blind". We have our favorites but we like to add in a dish every time just to see what it is like and have never,never been disappointed ! Do not be fooled by the diminutive size and location of this place. Once you are seated you will be in an absolute palace! Everything is prepared fresh and with great care by the owner/cook who is a wonderful and charming lady who is always anxious to please each and every customer. To use the words "hidden gem" to describe this place would be trite indeed. This place is the best!

The food is fresh and tasty. They make the best Thai that I have eaten. The portions are big and the prices for the meals are great.

Not sure why there's a stack of pancakes as the primary photo. However, this restaurant has great Thai food, and since I lived in SE Asia for eight years I like to think I know something about the cuisine. Nice atmosphere, very relaxing and friendly.

Finally decided to writer a review on this restaurant I have been enjoying for the last couple of years. DO not judge the restaurant by its exterior or old pictures posted on the web. If you do you will missing out on a very satisfying dining experience. It is not a large space but a very comfortable one, quaintly appointed in Thailand themes, soft relaxing music in background. The owner/chef, a native of Thailand, is accommodating, interacts with her customers ensuring all are satisfied. Its a nice gesture much appreciated.

The food is simply delicious, satisfying and thoroughly enjoyable. Can't say i have a favorite item have never been disappointed with any dish. Do enjoy the fresh spring rolls!!! The soups are refreshing light and spicy and surprisingly filling. The dishes are well proportioned with vegetable, meat, spices, herbs some unusual combinations that are surprisingly tasty. This restaurant has become a regular. Am sure you will find it to be as well.

In comparison to the other Thai restaurant in Dartmouth, Sivalai is light years better in all areas, quality and quantity of food, service, and dining atmosphere. Sivalai does serve wine beer and liquor to accompany a meal.

The owners and wait staff are very friendly and accomodating. The fresh rolls aren't always on the menu but when they are you HAVE to try them. They have a good variety of curries (massaman, green, red, etc) which I love at all Thai restaurants. My husband inevitably orders the Pad Thai but they even have a few options there for some variety. It's quite out of the way but worth the trip for great Thai food.
