I just love this restaurant and am so glad to hear it is still open! (Their website got hacked with a false message indicating it was closed.) The service is excellent and you can't beat the best Thai food in Toronto.

We were so relieved that only the website had been maliciously hacked, but that one of our favourite restaurants is still open. On our last visit we had the special dinner and it certainly proved that the food is still wonderful and the service friendly and attentive. It is where we take friends for an informal, but excellent meal.

Great food in this cozy restaurant. I recommend the curry that comes in the pineapple and coconut rice! Really nice place for an informal date or to go out with friends.

Went there last week and the food was amazing. Besides, the owner was there to chat and see how things were, in a very friendly manner. Food is like home made

I can't say enough about this restaurant, the food was amazing (they cater to both vegetarian, vegan and carnivores too). Share an appetizer so you can experience more Thai flavor as they do it so well! The service was impeccable without being stuffy and if you imbibe in alcohol the Lychee Martini was delicious...very pretty intimate atmosphere for a date... More

Once you climb the 3-4 steps into the establishment , only then you realize, you may be in a restaurant. Tables are set rather close to each other in various sections of this old structure. Owners boast of many celebrities who have visited here and they try to treat you like one. Food out of a six page menu, has... More

Very fresh and flavorful. Interesting choices. I didn't feel deprived with vegetarian choices. Service is sweet but you can't be in a hurry. Quiet, Thai atmosphere for conversation. Highly recommend.

I've been a customer of Mengrai for years but frankly their customer service has gone downhill. A few times we've had rushed delivery orders that come partially cooked - we literally finished cooking dishes on our stove because they're inedible. A recent dispute over a mango salad so green I could not chew through it has left me speechless. I... More

Absolutely delicious food. We were a party of 6 and so we chose a selection to share. Everything was so good. And the waiter (I wish I could remember his name - black hair - he served our group in the south west corner of the restaurant from about 7-9 Friday night) was so helpful and seemed to really care...

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
