We are from Edmonton and every Calgary visit "Khao thai" is a must. The food and service is consistently good. Its little bit on pricey side but defiantly worth it!!

The atmosphere is really good and it is very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. The food came out quickly and the spice was just... More

There is simply no question this us ghe best Thai restaurant not only in Calgary but anywhere outside Thailand itself. Pad thai... beyond delicious, spicy Thai soups are magical and the curries are perfect made with your choices of of meat/prawns and we love the coconut rice. Stop reading and just go there. It is perfect!
