Dial up the best Thai delivery in downtown Toronto

Take it from somebody who has lived there: Southeast Asia is a diverse cornucopia of cuisine, with various regional nuances often unseen to the naked eye. Like the rest of that part of the world, Thailand features a unique cross-section of fare, and downtown Toronto offers a pretty good sampling that can be delivered right to your door.

Sukho Thai

274 Parliament St, Toronto, ON M5A 3A4

Sukho specializes in northern Thai cuisine, and their signature “Sukh’ed up” pad thai is a must-try (hint: it uses different herbs than your standard pad thai). It does involve peanuts, so be advised. Another northern specialty is the delicious khao soi – noodles with a choice of beef or chicken. Hot tip: The gourmet spot only delivers from their Parliament Street location.


18 Duncan St, Toronto, ON M5H 3G8

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).

Thai Princess

The signature orange cashew nut shrimp here is fantastic, as is the pad see ew (name notwithstanding), a similar dish to the beloved pad thai. Like many dishes from Thailand, pad see ew has notable Chinese and Malaysian influences, but you’ll all the Thai favourites on the menu – from lemongrass curries to sourthern Thai noodles. Delivery hours: 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., Monday to Saturday
