I have gone many times to Talay Thai over the years when I used to live in Halifax. I recently visited again and the food is just as delicious as before. They serve excellent portions and the food is just fantastic. Super tasty, fresh and consistent. I would highly recommend anyone living in the city or visiting to stop by.... More

The reviews I read, led me to believe that I was in for fabulous feast. The Pad Thai was lacking in flavour. There were only three pieces of broccoli in it and few other vegetables even though I ordered vegetable pad thai. The noodles were sticky and lacked flavour. The next time I want Thai, I will go one block... More

We came here to eat a bit close to closing time, but since we ordered right away the staff was very gracious and friendly. I had the fresh spring rolls as an appetizer which was really nice, though I'm used to having them with peanut sauce and sriracha (something the waitress was unfamiliar with). Other things we ordered included the... More

We often order take-out from here when we're in town, but a couple months ago I had the opportunity to dine in, solo. I brought a book and the restaurant wasn't super busy (it was towards the end of the lunch hour on a week day). What a lovely, peaceful lunch! I had the massaman beef curry with a spring... More

The service is very fast and very good and friendly service. Decor is quite nice and the resto is quite spacious which makes it a good place to go when going with a group or if you want a bit more privacy. The food is not bad at all but definitely not amazing.

We were a little late for lunch so the place wasn't packed but the service was great and the food reasonably priced. I enjoyed the pad thai and the others seemed to have enjoyed their curry. I would recommend for families and even larger groups. Very yummy.

Visited the Talay looking for a good serve of vegetables with chilli and basil. The Talay did not disappoint serving a yummy stir fried veggie dish with tofu and without capsicum (aka bell peppers) as requested. The noodle dish we ordered was also with veggies and was terrific. The veggies were fresh with no hint of the softness frozen vegetables... More
