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

1
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.

Pai

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).

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
