Thai restaurants in Halifax

Not to be too morbid, but if I was on death row, my last meal would definitely be Thai – it’s my favourite type of cuisine on the planet! The first time I ever had Thai food just so happened to be in Halifax, and I’ve been completely hooked ever since. Thai fare is very popular in the city, so you’ll never be too far from a steaming plate of pad Thai or a bowl of spicy green curry.

Baan Thai

5234 Blowers St, Halifax, NS B3J 1J7

I had my first Thai food experience at Baan Thai so it holds a special place in my heart. I especially like going here for lunch because all of the daytime dishes are only $8.99, which includes a main dish with rice, plus a salad and soup. The lunch buffet is a great option for people with big appetites. If you don’t go with the lunch menu, I suggest the lettuce wraps – they’re my favourite thing on the menu.

Modern Orchid Southeast Asian Cuisine

171 Hector Gate, Dartmouth, NS B3B 0E5

This family-run Asian restaurant in Dartmouth Crossing is to die for! Although they offer a variety of Chinese and South East Asian cuisine, their real speciality is fresh, homemade, mouth-watering Thai dishes. The best part? Every single item on the menu is made from scratch that day – no additives!

Chabaa Thai Restaurant

1546 Queen St, Halifax, NS B3J 2H8

With three locations in Halifax, the Queen Street outpost of Cha Baa Thai is definitely the most central, but they all serve the same amazing food. They also have really good lunch specials ($11.50), and the most delicious Thai iced tea – a real treat! I also love the papaya salad (som tam), which is super fresh tasting and delicious. Don’t believe me? The Coast voted Cha Baa Thai the best Thai restaurant three out of the last five years!

Talay Thai Restaurant

5164 Morris St, Halifax, NS B3J 1B3

Most of my friends say that Talay Thai is their favourite Thai restaurant in Halifax. They have two locations in Halifax, and another outpost on the Dartmouth side on Cole Harbour Road. Don’t pass up their pad Thai – it’s some of the best I’ve ever had. All of their lunch specials are $10 and they also offer delivery if you’re feeling too lazy to leave the house.

Gingergrass Thai And Vietnamese Restaurant Ltd

1284 Barrington St, Halifax, NS B3J 1Y5

Also serving up authentic Vietnamese dishes, this little Thai restaurant is very popular and has been around for a long time. It’s frequented by downtown business folk at lunchtime, so it’s always a busy spot throughout the workweek. My favourite dish is the peanut curry, which is creamy and delicious and always hits the spot.

Thai Ivory Cuisine

6303 Quinpool Rd, Halifax, NS B3L 1A4

They’re everywhere! Business is booming for Thai Ivory Cuisine and the restaurant has opened up numerous locations across the city in recent years. The menu features all the classic Thai dishes – curries, noodles, rice, salads, soups, satays, spring rolls, and of course, authentic Thai dessert. It’s definitely family-friendly and the food is very consistent; you can expect the same great taste at any of their locations.

If you’re up early, you deserve to be rewarded with a great breakfast. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day (or at least that’s what they say!). Whether you’re in the heart of downtown or out in the suburbs, there are lots of delicious breakfast spots in Halifax to choose from, and a few that even specialize in early-morning fare.
When it comes to planning a business lunch, finding the perfect spot can be a challenge. You need a place that’s not too noisy, with reasonable wait times and efficient service. And of course, it’s an added bonus if the food and atmosphere impress the people you’re meeting with, whether they’re colleagues, partners or clients. These Halifax restaurants have been tried, tested and approved by the city’s movers and shakers.
Some may be surprised to hear that Halifax is known for its rock star bartenders, but it shouldn't really come as a shock, since Maritimers are known to fancy a drink. The fact is that the Nova Scotian capital boasts seriously creative bartenders who are producing some of the country's most cutting-edge craft cocktails. Nestled in the downtown core, there are endless options for tasty and inventive libations in Halifax.
