Toronto boasts some of the best Thai restaurants that transport you across the world to experience exciting flavours from Bangkok’s road-side stalls, Phuket’s beach-front stands and Chiang Mai’s night market. Aromatic, spicy, sour and sweet – Thai food expresses delicate, nuanced flavours that foodies love and appreciate.
We’re lucky to find Thai restaurants in almost every neighbourhood in our culturally rich city – below are our picks for top five best Thai restaurants in Toronto.
With locations around the city, Thai Room is an excellent choice for Thai cuisine in Toronto. The menu is extensive, featuring your familiar favourites and unique dishes from Thailand.
Start with Crispy Tofu, served with a drool-worthy peanut sauce 🤤, and follow it with Thai Shrimp Rolls (2 decadent spring rolls, filled with Thai tiger shrimp, glass noodles and vegetables, served with a Thai sweet and sour sauce). For your main dish, give the Phad Woon Sen a try (stir-fried glass noodles with fried onions, mushrooms, sweet basil, broccoli, egg and sweet peppers).
If you know, you know – Thai Lime delivers on freshly prepared, heaping portions at a great price. Local foodies always order the Appetizer Plate, which comes with a bounty of starters, including Thai calamari, salad rolls, BBQ shrimp satay, spring rolls, and green mango salad with peanut sauce. We also love the Thai Chicken Wings (a pound of wings, marinated in Thai Lime’s own secret sauce and served with a house salad), Sriracha Shrimp (self-explanatory), and Thai Spicy Noodles, stir-fried with basil leaves and hot chilis.
Imm Thai Kitchen… More like Yum Thai Kitchen, amiright? 😏 This spot serves up traditional Thai food and adds a modern twist. The Tom Yum Pad Thai takes the dish you know and elevates it with Tom Yum spices and optional toppings, like lobster. If you’re looking for something that packs a punch, try the Khaw Pad, a pineapple fried rice that hits all the right notes – sweet and salty with a crunch. There are no traces of ketchup in Imm’s House Pad Thai – which is also available as a vegan dish, for our plant-based lovers. The original comes wrapped in Imm Thai’s signature egg crepe.
Trust us – you’re going to wanna forge a long-lasting friendship with The Friendly Thai. The food is authentic, fresh and award-winning – need we say more? We love the flavour party that is the Thai Green Mango Salad. It’s crisp, spicy, sweet, sour and the perfect start to your Thai feast. Next up, we recommend the Thai Basil Tofu. Whether you live that ~plant-based life~ or not, this medium-spicy dish is seasoned perfectly and a fan fave. We’ll be your friend forever if you order the Mango Chicken – it’s mildly spicy, lightly stir-fried, with slices of fresh mango, baby corn and sweet peppers. 😍
If you’re looking for authentic flavours, big portions and leftovers that you’ll actually want to eat for lunch the next day, go for Eat BKK Thai Kitchen. You’ll definitely make friends with the Nam Tok Nua salad – it’s topped with Thai-style grilled beef, mint and basil, so you can feel fresh and primed for your next course. Keep your Thai party going with the Khao Soi – served with your choice of beef, tofu or chicken, this creamy Northern Thai dish will soothe your soul and tantalize your taste buds. Satisfy your veggie and carb craving in one dish with the Pad See Ewe, loaded with fresh veggies on a bed of flat rice noodles.
There – we just saved you thousands of dollars on a flight to Thailand. Enjoy!
