This place has by far the best curry I've had in a long time. Just the right amount of spice and full of flavour. All of our starters were good too.

Good place to go, really nice Thai food. Although I seem to have some disconnect with the server/owner. I always say mild and at least one dish comes screaming, spicy hot and I simply cannot eat it. The flavours are so amazing though that I have to go back.

I went with friends to eat here as we had heard the food was good and it was. The dishes were tasty and well presented. However, the owner/server attempted humour suggesting my 300lb plus body would need to order double the amount what the others would order. That might be ok in Thai culture but it's not here.

Stickered on the door to Kinaree Thai Cuisine is the word “Sawatdee”—a Thai greeting—following by the phrase, “Thai It. You’ll Like It”, which is both adorable and also probably the catch phrase for various Southeast Asian pornography sites. I’m surprised the owner stopped there with the puns. “Don’t let regular food Thai you down, har har!” That aside, Kinaree is... More

So I used to live beside the best Thai restaurant in Calgary. Not best in my opinion but a highly rated and reviewed restaurant as a great authentic taste of Thailand. I grew to love Thai food. Someone recommended Kinaree and I got excited to give it a try. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The flavors were there... More

I love this place, it is a good place for a good meal. You know how you crave a good dinner at the end of a long day well come here. Good amount of spice, friendly people and always a pleasant experience.

Close to work and the only Thai place in Courtenay now, I was hoping to find good food and good value and make this place a regular lunch spot. Unfortunately, it's quite expensive, the portions are tiny, and the food is just good. The Owner seems tired and uninterested, I can't see this place getting any better.

I have never been to Thailand but I do know how to cook. I love to eat as well. We have been here a few times now. I am done now. I find the rice comes before your main and then it is cold. The curries are ok. I think you pay to much for alot of rice.The owner {waiter}... More

I have never been to Thailand, but I have eaten a fair amount of Thai food. Obviously I can't compare any of it to how it "should taste", but I do know when something is exceptional and when it is not. My experience here was "average" - food, service, atmosphere. if this were my only time to ever try Thai... More
