Recommendations for Thai Restaurants Toronto

What's your favourite? Driving is not an issue. Thanks It's for a birthday dinner.

      It's for less than 10 people, food quality is more important than atmosphere.

      1. re: Janine

        Sukhothai is a favourite on the board, though it's not unanimous. It is a very casual place on Parliament, south of Dundas. You definitely need to make a reservation for that number (sometimes it's impossible to get a table for 2 without a reservation). They have a little room downstairs that might fit 10 perfectly; seems to me that's how many seats were there last time I went. So, it's possible you could ask to be seated down there, and then you could have your birthday dinner in relative privacy!

          I was going to recommend Sukhothai, but decided to ask about the size of your group first for the precise reasons that Full tummy stated. My second rec would be Mengrai Thai (mentioned below). However, for a small group and if you can secure a reservation, I'd definitely go with Sukhothai especially since atmosphere is not an important consideration for you.

    2. And if it's a birthday dinner, does atmosphere matter? For example, how upscale of an environment are you looking for?

      1. I just ate at Sit in Bangkok on College St. in Littly Italy... really good product! I got referred from a friend in the area and will now be going there a lot more often. Food is excellent and very reasonably priced, fast take out service as well.

          I suggest BUO THAI at the corner of Davenport & Dupont (S.W. beside the variety store). They can easily accomodate 10 persons if given advance notice...I find the food to be really good, fresh, tasty and nicely presented, the young owners will go out of their way to please you...simply give them a call to discuss options. I was at a party that took over the entire restaurant one evening, it was buffet style with cocktail appetizers to begin the evening..couldn't have been nicer. Parking is easy in the neighbourhood during the evening hours.

        2. My friend had his B day party at Mengrai Thai. He loves Thai food. He admitted after trying Sukhothai, that it is better then Mengrai. But he said that he would still choose Mengrai for a party because the room was nicer for a party, and the service was a little smoother.

          1. I agree with all the rest, Sukhothai for the edge on flavour, Mengrai Thai for the big edge on atmosphere and space. Not that Sukhothai is falling apart or ugly, but with more space Mengrai has more ways to add elegance and dimensions to their dining environment.
