Good and Bad

We went there for nice dinner during winterlisious 2012. Overall restaurant is very busy but cozy and romantic. Our server was running around in hurry and as a result during entire evening mixed up who ordered what, since it was only two of us it was ok to switch. Food Overall was very good: My appetizer was yumm and so is my the other person, soft deep fried calamari was excellent. Chicken skewers were moist and sauce was perfectly spicy. For the main dish disappointment arrived, all main dishes come with rice and stir fry. Stir fry was the WORST I have ever tried, super hard giant pieces of cabbage+ raw zucchini made it unpleasant both on taste and texture. Main dish of red curry was excellent and rice was perfectly done. Basil beef was amazing (properly the softest piece of beef I have ever tried in my life). Desserts were good too my mango-chocolate mousse cake was heavenly and banana fritter had amazing crunchy but sweet coating on it .

Hidden gem, good thai food.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. Not sure if the owners are authentic Thai, but the food is very tasty, especially the banana fritters. The portions can be shared between two people. My favourite dishes are: the seafood pad thai and thai pineapple fried rice. You should go.

As a party of three, we ate here in Oct. What a wonderful experience! Everything ordered was super fresh and attractively served. I would recommend the appetizer sampler, which can be altered for more than two. Spring rolls, calamari, a sort of sushi and more with great dipping sauces. I had the Basil stir fried shrimp with baby basil leaves and adjusted to medium heat. My son ordered the shrimp fried rice - beautiful meal with the rice nice and spicy. My husband had Bangkok Noodle a seafood entree with tons of scallops. Not a crumb left on any plate. We had lattes (could have been hotter) and a great martini. The decor is wonderful - serene and artistic with very nice lighting. Service is very good - was surprised that the waiter always deferred to the men first, both in ordering and serving. No problem, but not used to that. He should have known it was my decision to go there. Very reasonable prices in relation to other Elm Street restaurants.

best deal for authentic Thai food in an upscale AYCE restaurant. Visited with a large party and were seated at a long table. Decor is upscale, hardwood floors throughout, statues and mirrors, staff is well dressed and very helpful. Extensive variety of delicious Thai food to please carnivores and herbivores. Will definitely re-visit and recommend to others.

I celebrated my 24th birthday at your restaurant on July 14 and I had a fantastic experience. I had booked for a table of 12 originally, however last minute after we were seated I had to add 4 more seats. The server was so accommodating where he pulled another table with chair right away. We had a million requests and everything was arranged in a kind and timely manner. I can't remember my servers name but if you see this review, thank you!

Went here for lunch buffet and the price was only $17.95 which is great! The decor was really nice and there was a Koi pond. The Thai food was good but I feel it was kind of westernized and there are other restaurants in Toronto where you can find more authentic Thai food. Also, the service wasn't that great. They put us in a dark corner even though there were many tables available. The server didn't visit our table unless we called for him. So we kind of felt ignored. Would recommend for a one-time visit.

We asked for table one but as in previous visits even though we had made the reservation days ahead we were asked to select another table.There are two of us and bags of shopping.We like privacy so ask for this table.We are fast diners and do not hold up the table.We are here every five weeks and have done so for years.Getting this table seems to be impossible.however .It is one excuse or another.

The old Chinese lady at the noodle soup station is very good in customer service. She is very kind and polite should give her a raise she has been working there for almost 15 year. Food overall is excellent and price should be around 15 dollars

The only negative is that they did not have the wine we wanted - Malbec - (from a fairly limited wine list) and when we got the other (more expensive) red wine we picked it was very warm. We had to ask for an ice bucket.... Service however was excellent and the emerald curry is just as good as I remember from many years ago....

We had the 4-course dinner that is apart of the couple massage at Elm Wood Spa. Dinner was okay, the menu had typos and the boneless chicken had bones. The server had forgotten that they dropped off the bill and we sat waiting for an awkward amount of time.

Ordered one of the set dinners for two people. Good value. Service was prompt. The only quibble I had is that the restaurant's information system did not seem to have any record of the reservation I had made online. Fortunately, the restaurant wasn't. very crowded, so my dinner companion and I had no trouble getting a table. However, if the restaurant had been busier, the problem with the reservation system might have caused us difficulty.

Food was very good but service was inattentive. We were not offered second drinks, had to ask for water refills and waited a long time for our bill. Those of us who had the buffet piled our used plates in the centre of the table as they were not ever collected. The automatic default to a 20% tip was rather disturbing as well.
