My friends and I went to Thai Sun yesterday and we ordered the Pad Thai, Coconut Chicken soup, and the Panang Curry. Let me start off by saying that the waitstaff were exceptionally courteous, friendly and eager for feedback. Having said that, the ingredients and flavours of the dishes at Thai Sun were at complete odds with its promise of... More

I've reviewed Thai Sun in 2015 and since I continued to be a frequent patron through the areas construction in 2016, thought I'd update my review. While the menu is not overly extensive, I always seem to have a tough time deciding what to choose. They do so many dishes well! The Cashew Chicken & Shrimp entree is my favourite... More

The calamari dish at the Thai Sun is the best in town! I celebrated my birthday and picked up calamari, vege pad thai (with tofu), red chicken curry and the avocado rolls to eat at home. As always the food was superb, but the nice touch was the birthday message on the container and the candle on top! Thank you... More

I found the menu limited and you can't swap out one meat for another in their dishes. Overall the portions were big and flavour was good. Service was just ok. I would go back when craving Thai.

Ordered ginger chicken for lunch and was quite pleased with the selection. The chicken was tender, though a tad dry, but the veggies were perfectly cooked in a delicate, but flavorful sauce with thinly sliced ginger. The rice was moist and large enough for two. At $14.00, it was a generous portion that was a good value. Service was friendly... More

Thai Sun is a a family owned restaurant which serves excellent Thai cuisine. Fresh and flavor popping are the 2 words that describe every meal we have partaken there. From the freshly wrapped shrimp & vegetable spring rolls to the Panang Curry dish we have yet to leave disappointed. Also 1st timers must try the Cashew and Chicken (Fab Five)... More

First time visiting and the meal and atmosphere was really good. The menu isn't overwhelming and easy to navigate. Its a small space, but that gives it a truly intimate feel. This place would suit vegetarians no problem! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an authentic Thai experience.

Both of us enjoyed Pad Thai meals - mine a chicken, my friend's was vegetarian. Our meals were quite filling, bright, healthy and delicious. We both found our plates benefitted from an additional touch of hot sauce (which I normally wouldn't add). Our server was friendly, quick and always close (not hovering, just attentive). The restaurant itself has a very... More

Thai Sun, located on Willis Way in Uptown Waterloo, is a welcoming place. You can eat on their little outdoor patio, or inside at a comfortable booth. The food is reasonably priced, spiciness is made to order, and the presentation is great (e.g. rice comes in the shape of a pyramid!) Grab a friend and go for lunch: the Spinning... More

I met a friend I hadn't spent time with in 30 years. We got caught up over a healthy lunch. We both enjoyed the mango salad with chicken. It was delightful
