Review Golden Thai

proof Sep 2, 2007 08:57 AM

Went to the Golden Thai last night. 105 Church St. at Richmond. With a plethora of Thai in Toronto, and everything ok but not overwhelmingly good, I wasn't expecting much. WOW. Was I wrong. Excellent. And inexpensive to boot! The ambience is very nice, comfortable. Chandeliers of varying styles are a nice touch. Servers very helpful The place was jammed and we were lucky to get in without reservations. The food was amazing. I don't like heat and all the dishes had kick without major heat (there are hot dishes for those of you who like heat) Try the Tom Yum soup (chicken). Tamarind broth was exquisite. Spring rolls with black mushrooms, very yummy. Basil chicken was excellent and everything VERY fresh. Phad thai......wonderful. Definitely returning on a regular basis.

    That's good, but surprising, to hear. I used to go there a lot in the early 90s, but gradually found it going downhill and my last meal there, about three years ago, was so dull that I haven't been back since.
    Anybody know if there's been any major changes in management, staffing etc. since then?

      Maybe give it another shot? I went there on a recommendation from a friend that said it was amazing.

        They must have turned it around since rsvp777's take on it. I had a good experience food-wise except for the service, which really, was not bad. The place was packed when I went there.
        Looks like they are back in the saddle!
