Spicy Thai is my favourite place for pad Thai in the city. It has changed a bit over the years but the staff remain friendly and the prices are good.

The smell kits in the face as walk into this quaint place......Curry/Lemon grass and ginger are aromas that bring smiles to my face. The food does not disappoint....I recommend and Thai basil dish...especially duck. Request the tea room for an authentic dining experience when making reservations but know you will be sitting on an elevated bamboo platform with shades and... More

Love this place for the atmosphere and ambiance! Food always excellent, whether eat in or take out ... Great service too. Parking can be tricky, especially if there are other events downtown. If you are going on a weekend night, you will want to make a reservation for certain. Enjoy!

We ordered soft shell crab - was really "soft"; I was expecting it to be more crispy. The spring roll was just ok. The main was however very delicious. I would recommend the green curry.

Great atmosphere, excellent wait staff, and Excellent food. We had the Mango Tango which I would recommend although I would recommend getting hotter than mild if you like a little spice will probably try medium or hot next time.

The outside isn't the most appealing but when you walk inside, its very authentic and when you taste the food you will always go back for more! The staff is always friendly & service is always consistently good.

You cannot beat Spicy Thai for authentic Thai food, outstanding service and relaxing ambience. It's no wonder this place is busy every night of the week. Try the coconut soup for something very different! The restaurant is located in a quiet, slightly run-down, off the main grid location of Saint Catharines. Driving there, you will wonder if you're in the... More

My husband and i met his brother and our sister-in-law here for dinner a couple weeks ago. It was our first time trying Spicy Thai and we really enjoyed our meal. The restaurant is larger inside than it looks like it would be and we sat up in the bamboo room on pillows. We felt like it was a real... More
