My husband and I loved the green curry and the appetizer platter. The service was very efficient. We were hesitant to eat here because there were very few people on a Tuesday evening, but we were glad we came.

Yeah, it's OK. Staff are nice, bit dark. Food is fine. Portions are large. I'm struggling to write anything beyond that.

We enjoyed a nice meal at Talay Thai. All dishes were flavourful and quite authentic. We dined early so it was quiet. Well worth a visit for lovers of Thai food.

If you like basil and fat noodles. Get the drunken noodle. It was the best I ever had. The som tum was excellent. Some thai restaurants make it too sweet. This was just right.

It took over 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge me. The soup was pretty mediocre at best. The other 2 closest restaurants were close for parties. My second trip here, and I should have skipped it.

Grabbed dinner here on our way to an event. The food was good and service was friendly and fast! Decor could use a little updating.

A little tough to find b/c the signage is overshadowed by a huge SUBWAY (subs) logo on the same building above the Thai sign!! Nice good, nice service.
