Delicious Thai food. The daily special is always a flavourful treat. They have their own little parking area. It's best to make reservations as this place is hopping!

Straight up - and I eat a lot of Asian food - I had one of the best cooked, most tender and tasty bites of squid in a year. Not only that but in this dish ($17 special) was three gigantic scallops perfectly cooked. If...More

I recently began a job near the Talay Thai, and lunch options around here are limited. Today i tried this place, and LOVED the Pad dish I had. Such a great peanutty flavour! Will definitely be back. Very fast service, as well.

Ive been hunting for the best thai place in ottawa and this hits high. I enjoyed their peanut sauce main a lot. The tom kha soup wasnt as good as social thai. But their mains were great. Definitely check this place out

Had a very unsatisfactory meal: veggies almost raw, "special" sauce didn't taste anything but salt, so chicken was bland. Giving more than one star though because others in my company liked the meal and the attitude was very polite.

We had been here in the past and found the food decent. I don’t know what changed, but the food was truly terrible this last visit. The coconut soup was very thin and far too sweet. It must have been filled with sugar. The chicken...More
