We've been going to Thai Boat for about 5 years, and we keep going back! Some of the unique flavours & menu items have become favourites of our family. The ever-changing wall decor is humorous & thought provoking, what a hoot! When we go, we all usually get soup, and order one dish each plus coconut rice. Tonight was no... More

I love Thai and was very excited about ordering take out, with leftovers for lunch. It was not at all what I expected...the pad Thai was noodles with cooked cabbage and rubbery shrimp that tasted awful. Nothing like any pad Thai I have ever had before. I hate to waste food but threw it away :(

I love Thai boat. This place serves up tasty and large portions for economical prices. The service is super friendly and most importantly the food is authentic and tastes soooooooo good.

When we walked in we were a bit turned off by the atmosphere - leaves a lot to be desired. (But, like a friend once said...can't eat atmosphere.) We were in a hurry so opted for the buffet. Initially disappointed....only 4 items to choose from. Then came the surprise...the food was pretty tasty and good.

We ordered pick up for a business lunch, with a selection of red and green curry. My rating is reflective of this particular meal in comparison to a Fantastic thai meal I've had in Airdrie. I found here that they are used to cooking for the lunch rush and I found my chicken to be fairly over cooked, and my... More

In Calgary, when you walk into a Japanese restaurant, most likely the establishment isn't owned by any Japanese person; this applies to most Asian places. But Thai Boat is actually owned my Thai people and you can have an authentic Thai cuisine if you ask to make it in the original Thai style (most of the time, it just means... More

Went there for lunch one day and very much enjoyed it. Took my wife and friends there for dinner one night. The meal and service were poor....I'm no longer on the committee to suggest places to eat.

Excellent choice for Thai food. Authentic people, food and experience. To Try: Stuffed chicken wings, vegetarian pad thai and (fried) banana and coconut ice cream for a happy ending.
