Delicious Thai food. The daily special is always a flavourful treat. They have their own little parking area. It's best to make reservations as this place is hopping!

I recently began a job near the Talay Thai, and lunch options around here are limited. Today i tried this place, and LOVED the Pad dish I had. Such a great peanutty flavour! Will definitely be back. Very fast service, as well.

Ive been hunting for the best thai place in ottawa and this hits high. I enjoyed their peanut sauce main a lot. The tom kha soup wasnt as good as social thai. But their mains were great. Definitely check this place out

Had a very unsatisfactory meal: veggies almost raw, "special" sauce didn't taste anything but salt, so chicken was bland. Giving more than one star though because others in my company liked the meal and the attitude was very polite.
