What's that? It's a prawn and Japanese eggplant dish done in oyster sauce that goes well with their Pad Thai and steamed sticky rice. Menu items no. 20 and 37 respectively. (Rice does not rate a number.) There you have it. You need no longer fear a Thai restaurant menu and you won't regret ordering the above. Wash it all... More

Good selection and very tasty food. Service was very good. We had pad thai and several curry dishes; each had a unique flavour. Portion size was very good.

Had dinner here and thought I remember this as a great restaurant, but I came away a little disappointed. It was ok - clean, efficient, but it didn't;'t stand out. I will probably go back as there are not really any better Thai restaurants in the area, so perhaps next time I will have more relevant expectations

I love Thai food so I decided to check this place out. Little did I know it would blow me away! Khao has the best red Thai curry I've had outside of Asia, plus they have an amazing peanut and mango salad :)

Wanted something different than pub food in the Market. I went to his place in 2010 and it was great. Didn't fail me again. Very good food

Probably one of the best thai food in Ottawa, nice place but poor service on two occasions. The lunch special includes tea or coffee. They were brought at the table at the same time as the water and the wine. The spring rolls were brought while we were still having our soup and the main dish was brought when we... More

Best Pad Thai Ever! Great atmosphere, great Cocktails and all reasonably priced. Went there with our soccer team for dinner; everyone loved the food. Very nice staff and owner. Definitely the place to go to for Authentic Thai Food.

Visited with a friend for dinner. We ordered the miang som (minced pork and peanuts on orange). This appetizer has a great flavour profile with its sweet peanuts, slightly acidic orange, and just a tiny bit of cilantro. I always order the yellow or red curry when I go and I'm always extremely pleased. The sauce is just the right... More
