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

This was the second time dining here while staying in Ottawa. The food has always been very nice, and the waitresses are all friendly and helpful. This time we tried two different appetizers, the Satay Gai (chicken on skewers) and the Too Hoo Tod (fried tofu). Both were delicious, although the chicken seemed a little plain. For entrees we tried... More

This is a good restaurant where people can talk leisurely while eating spicy (or not) food. Waitresses are always smiling and very accurate. And the Pad Thai is outstanding, chicken is tender and offered in a variety of plates. But beware when the dish is marked as "hot"... !

We've been going here for some years now when we visit the city. The welcome is warm, as is the restaurant, unless you sit right by the window. The space is clean,cosy and comfortable with vaguely Thai decor. The all female wait staff are helpful, wearing pretty variations of the same simple red dress. The service is very quick and... More

I have eaten at Khao Thai many many times with friends and family and often do take-out. Out of town family always want to go when they visit. The food is consistently fresh and delicious. Great veggie spring rolls, curries, salads, noodle dishes and a full vegetarian menu. The Tom Kha Gai soup is amazing and the appetizer with pork... More

We had a delectable chicken curry with cashews, which even my not-coconut loving husband loved. We also had a fine pineapple shrimp sweet and sour. Service was gracious, and the surroundings were very attractive. The food arrived very fast, which was wonderful because we were starving. The menu is extensive, and I look forward to trying more items!

This is simply the most incredible Thai food I have ever eaten. I forgot the name but I ate a chicken curry. It was so juicy, tender, delicious - full of flavours. It finally felt like quality authentic food! I am raving about this place to all my friends and plan to go back many many time to taste everything... More
