Pai Restaurant, Toronto

PAI Northern Thai Kitchen

You’re going to be hearing Chef Nuit Regular’s name quite a few times in this post.

She’s a well-known chef here in Toronto, and she’s got several popular Thai restaurants in Toronto under her belt!

Northern Thai cuisine is what you’ll find at PAI, and you can visit either their Entertainment District or Yonge & Eglinton locations.

You’ll absolutely want to try the Khao Soi – you’ll be dreaming about it for weeks.

There are also a good number of vegan options on the menu for any of my plant-based peeps out there!

Be sure to arrive early for a table because lines form pretty quickly, and maybe don’t take a first date here ’cause it’s hecka loud inside the restaurant.

LOCATION: Various locations


Chiang Mai

Craft cocktails and modern Thai dishes are what you’ll find at Chiang Mai.

Everything is made fresh in-house using premium ingredients and local, seasonal ingredients, and all of their dishes and cocktails are just as beautiful as their restaurants.

They’ve got locations on Danforth, in Liberty Village, and in Mimico, all of which have stunning interiors!

LOCATION: Various locations


EAT BKK Thai Kitchen & Bar

You’ll find all kinds of classic and unique Bangkok-style street foods at EAT BKK, with dishes like their Curry Puffs and Khao Soi Poutine!

They’ve even got a vegan menu for ya plant-based folks out there.

They’ve got 6 locations across Toronto, including at Yonge & Sheppard and on Queen West.

All of their locations feature cool artwork and eclectic decor that’ll transport you to the streets of Bangkok!

Thai takeout from Sukhothai Restaurant in Toronto

Sukhothai

Sukhothai has all the Thai dishes we know and love, and more.

Their Pad Thai is absolutely amazing – definitely one of my favourites in the city!

Sukhothai was actually Chef Nuit Regular’s first restaurant that she opened with her husband back in 2008.

They’ve got 3 locations across the city on Dundas West, in the Old Toronto neighbourhood, and in Corktown.

LOCATION: Various locations

Kiin

If you’re looking for something a little more upscale, you’ll want to visit Chef Nuit Regular’s Kiin.

Kiin’s menu is inspired by Royal Thai cuisine, in both the taste and the aesthetic of the dishes.

Think lots of bright colours, and flower-shaped dumplings.

You’ll find all kinds of different and traditional dishes from across Thailand at Kiin, and it’s all meant to be shared with friends.

The restaurant itself is also stunning, with teal banquette seating and plenty of elegant wood details!

LOCATION: 326 Adelaide St W, Toronto, ON


Khao San Road

Khao San Road is actually a famous street in Bangkok for backpackers, and that’s what this popular Toronto Thai restaurant is named after.

Their menu isn’t huge, but they’ve got all the classic Thai curry and noodle dishes.

You can even choose the amount of heat you want for your dishes, ranging from a scale of 0 (no spice) to 11 (chef top spicy).

They also have both vegan and gluten-free menus for anyone who has dietary restrictions!

They also import some ingredients directly from Thailand, which is pretty cool!

LOCATION: 11 Charlotte St, Toronto, ON


Jatujak

Jatujak is the name of the world’s largest weekend market, which is located in Bangkok!

It’s also the name of this amazing family of restaurants, all under the Jatujak name.

Jatujak has 3 locations, but they’re all located in North York and Scarborough, so my downtowner friends will have to travel for this one.

Their food is absolutely amazing and authentic, and also very affordable, so it’s totally worth the trek!

Favorites Thai BBQ

Favorites Thai BBQ is by the owners of Paris Paris and Khao San Road, and they serve up Thai-style charcoal BBQ at their gorgeous restaurant on Ossington.

You’ll find plenty of unique Thai-inspired dishes like AAA Tenderloin Thai Tartare and Coconut Braised Oyster Mushroom.

They also have an extensive wine list featuring wines from all over the world, as well as some Thai-inspired cocktails like their signature Spiked Thai Iced Tea!

Favorites actually received Bib Gourmand designation on this year’s Toronto Michelin Guide, which is pretty awesome!

LOCATION: 141 Ossington Ave, Toronto, ON


Salad King

I discovered Salad King while I was a Toronto Metropolitan University student – actually, it’s quite famous amongst TMU students.

Is it because it’s 20% off for TMU students? Or just because it’s delicious? Probably both.

The Green Curry was my fave here as a student, as well as their ~secret menu~ Islamic Noodles.

Their portions are huge, so I usually saved half of my meals for another meal!

You can find their locations near Yonge & Dundas (near TMU) and at Queen & McCaul (near OCAD).

Fun fact: Salad King was literally a salad restaurant when it first opened, and it slowly became a Thai restaurant over the years when it got taken over by new owners!

Okay, I’ll be honest: I’ve only been to Thai Basil’s restaurant in Richmond Hill, but I’ve visited dozens of times if that counts for anything.

I went to high school next door to the Richmond Hill location, so I often came for their lunch specials, or my family ordered takeout for dinner.

They actually started out in Vancouver in 1995 (the year I was born!), and came to Toronto in 2005.

Their Thai Yellow Curry and Pad Thai are my faves on the menu!
