Do not let the location fool you as this is among the best restaurants in Calgary for Thai Food. We arrived and the line was out the door and not seating for 30 minutes. It is a small restaurant with very limited seating, so we...More

Flavours of the food are authentic, portions are HUGE, service is nothing special but not a concern. We had Penang curry, green curry and Thai basil. All had unique flavours and just the right amount of heat. Worth the trip

Sawaddee Kaa. Fantastic Thai food. So good I ate here 3 nights in a row while in Calgary. If you LOVE Thai food, you have to try this place. BTW it was packed all 3 nights. That speaks volumes.

This little out of the way restaurant serves up some of the best Thai food I've had. Ordered the Dynamite Prawns and wasn't disappointed. Huge prawns in a savoury sauce. I was there at 5pm, order taken and served pronto. The food was over the...More
