My wife and I came here for dinner and were told we’d have to wait 30+ minutes for a table. Admittedly we didn’t have a reservation, but that wait time seemed... long given there wasn’t too many waiting for a 2 seat table. We decided...More

Stopped here based on good reviews. Was hard to find - inside low end Airporter Hotel with no external sign. They don’t need to advertise though - it was full (small). Thai food was excellent. We have eaten at many Thai places and this ranks...More

We had been there a few times already but we mainly like the Thai Curry there. The green, red and yellow are awesome and chicken is probably better meat quality than beef but is still good. Don't need to go for coconut rice, the curry...More

After hearing this was the best Thai food in Calgary I drove across town to get take out. It was awful. This is the worst Thai food I've ever had. The Phad Thai isn't proper Phad Thai and its bland with over cooked noodles. The...More
