This restaurant is in an old house. It has been around for years, not sure how it stays open. When you first walk in it smells musty. Prices are great, but food is horrible. I had eggs benedict for breakfast and honestly COULD NOT EAT IT. It was disgusting.

Had the good fortune of having a lovely breakfast with friends at the golden rooster today. The breakfast was excellent and a varied menu to choose from. The impeccable service from the owners was amazing. Haven't seen a gentleman in dress pants, white shirt with cufflinks and red vest taking care of patrons in a very long time. The professionalism...

The owner is a very debonair gentlemen that gives you the feeling of stepping back in time. Looks like he stepped out of a movie from the 40's... Wonderfully warm and cozy feeling in this establishment. Mostly know for their authentic Thai dishes.

We have now visited this restaurant 3x and I absolutely love it. The people who own it are the ones who serve and cook. They are super friendly and polite and as another review said it's like you're visiting their home for dinner. I recommend the cashew nut chicken dish with rice it is amazing and crave worthy. I will... More

Went there for lunch today for the first time. The server was an older gentleman who was also the owner. Had the shrimp rolls and pad Thai, my friend had the mango chicken. Everything was excellent and can't wait to go back to try the rest of the Thai food selection.

I had a wonderful Thai lunch on August 20th. The spring rolls were crisp and tasty and the cashew chicken was fresh and flavourful. Harry the owner served me and was delightful and his wife Wanna is the cook - their specialty is Thai dishes but the also have some Canadiana food on the menu. Prices were very reasonable, it...

What a wonderful surprise. We have lived in the area for a year and decided to try it for one of our date nights. Well OMG what a wonderful meal, we are still raving about it the next day. The beautiful Victorian mansion is owned and run by a husband and wife team. They are charming and extremely friendly. Yes,... More

This is a hidden gem. It is run by a retired couple that used to own a Thai restaurant in the city. Keep in mind that the service isn't always quick and Harry sometimes forgets things. It is much like going over to someone's house for supper. They are a delightful couple and Wanda makes delicious Thai food. I live... More

I eat a lot of Thai food because I love it and go all over to try it. The Thai here is wonderful and they will make it as mild or hot as you like. The owners are the only staff and the waiter is a very kind older gentleman. The service is very personable. The charm of the place... More
