    It was so delicious! My husband and I are vegan so we were able to order items on the menu that could be turned vegan. I had the Pad Thai....best vegan Pad Thai I have ever had! We will be back with friends. Loved the atmosphere.

    The food was amazing but the service was not so good. We asked for water twice and didn't get it. Finally after our third request, someone brought some over. Also, we had mentioned we planned to share the items we ordered but had to ask twice for plates and spoons to serve. It didn't affect how great the food was but it did affect the overall experience.

    Food was delicious, but our food took quite a while to get to us. Good atmosphere and our table was ready as soon as we arrived. Overall a great time :) We would happily go again!

    Service great. Good table waiter. I would say food was pretty average. Not high end Thai. Not sure why all the fuss and the lineups. Toi was great on reservations.

    Enjoyed thoroughly. Wings and garlic shrimp (kung tawt) were awesome. We had pad thai, pad gra pow (crispy pork was too oily for me), and panang curry. Service, staff and ambience were wonderful. Just wish they had made my dishes spicy -- I asked for "farang spicy" and it was no where near spicy. Will definitely go back and try their "phet mak mak" spicy. The Lowry drinks were delicious, for gin and mojito enthusiasts.

    We were surprised getting the bill because a mandatory 20% gratuity was added to our bill but it wasn’t explained at all before our lunch. We were just 4 adults and 3 kids so we didn’t think we constituted a large group. Furthermore the service was almost nonexistent with us always asking fir water, extra utensils, and our food. So as you can inagine, we were surprised and a bit turned off by the bill at the end. Ro tell you the truth it left a bad taste in our mouth where we would consider eating somewhere next time when out-of-town guests come. Morever, we found food portions were a little bit on the small size and the length if time it took for food to come to the table quite lengthy considering we came before the lunch rush. In the past, we have enjoyed the food and our experiences but this last visit has made us rethink any future visits.

    The atmosphere was not what we expected, but it was a really great vibe. Also the service was excellent but many different servers helped us. This was also unexpected. The food was top notch Thai. The flavours were great.

    Love the place. Fantastic food and atmosphere but not a 5 due to the loudness. Difficult to carry on a conversation. Service was slow but I can’t blame the servers, place extremely busy and I think they did their best. Recommended.

    Totally over-rated. Food is nothing to rave about. Service is barely passable. Place is too loud and too warm for comfortable dinner. I would not recommend to others and would not return.

    The food was very good! However, the noise level within the restaurant was too loud for my grandma, and because of the amount of people, the service was a little on the slower side. Regardless, definitely will come back but not with family.

    Was seated under an air conditioning duct that was dripping water on us and they refused to move us even though we had reservations for over a month and half the restaurant was empty at the time. Service was super rushed. Main course was served two minutes after our appetizers arrived and had to ask several times for our drink order. In all my dinning experiences I've never had this happen. You could not have fit another plate o that table. Lastly, make sure you check your bill as they help themselves to a 20 percent gratuity. 20 percent for that service is pretty cheeky. On the other hand, If your in a hurry, these guys will have you in and out faster than McDonald's.

    This is a wonderful place to eat! The food is delicious and the atmosphere is great. The hardest part is to decide what to eat. :) But we had a papaya salad as start and then each a curry as main. We’ll be back soon

    PAI serves up casual Northern Thai cuisine in a bustling eatery that will transport you to the streets of Thailand, flags and Bob Marley posters included. Wooden beams run the length of the sprawling restaurant and give the underground space a warm, natural feel. The dishes at PAI are great for sharing. You won’t want to miss the papaya salad, which is served on a platter surrounded by shrimp chips, rice noodles and pork rinds. Ice-cold Singha and Chang are available by the bottle and there’s refreshing cocktail options to impress every connoisseur.

    China’s northern cuisine – szechuan – is spicier than its southern counterparts. It’s the opposite case with Thailand’s northern fare. Pai specializes in northern cuisine also, but its signature item, the Gaeng Masaman curry, is actually a central Thai dish – served with braised beef and served with jasmine rice. Delivery hours: 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Monday to Saturday), 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. (Sunday).

    One of Toronto’s sole destinations for Northern Thai cuisine, Pai is headed by renowned chef Nuit Regular, who offers her may-we-say stellar interpretations of authentic Thai fare (she’s also one of the culinary minds behind the lauded Sukhothai). The cozy-yet-spacious subterranean eatery at Duncan and Adelaide boasts a menu stacked with hot pot soups (think: hot and sour with lemongrass and prawns), and spicy meat and rice dishes like pork belly or oxtail with ginger curry and jasmine rice.
