My Thai has revamped from its previous incarnation. The people running it are friendly, helpful, and welcoming, and the food is terrific. The lunch menu is extensive, and they are willing to make everything in a vegetarian version, which is unheard of and so welcome....More

It seems like a few of the more common dishes are a bit bland, but everything we've tried outside-of-the-box has been an event! Lots of punch to the sauces, lots of texture. As for the quaint and busy little venue, every time someone opens the...More

Each lunch entree included a tasty soup and spring roll. The vegetables in the dish were nice and firm, cooked perfectly. Very nice sauces.

Ordered takeout from the My Thai Cafe, popped in to pick it up and had a short wait. Very busy little restaurant, the food was great, and good value. Had to go back to pick up the rice, but at least we weren’t too far...More

If you like Thai you have to try My Thai Cafe!!! We love Thai food and our opinion is that this is the best Thai in Victoria. Locally owed and operated buy the young Thai cook. A must try.

I find many Victoria Thai restaurants to serve bland food - My Thai has lively and flavourful dishes. They are conservative with spice, even when requested spicy. Highly conscientious and mindful of food allergies/sensitivities. They also pack take-out food well so soups/curries do not spill.

Phanang curry was delicious, service was pleasant and efficient. Well worth visiting for eat in or take out.

Lovely robust flavours, rich mouth feel and attention to detail in ingredients, actual cooking and customer experience. I really like this place! Many Thai restaurants fall victim to generic curry flavouring with only modest attention to ingredients and presentation. Others deliver subtlety, coyness in serving...More

The food here is fairly typical of most That food. Nothing special but good food for a reasonable price. The service is not that great, maybe due to language barrier not sure. The place is worth going to if in the area.
