Good place for Thai food. Ordered the Pad Thai with tofu and spicy mango salad with a Thai iced tea. Pad Thai was good, over sauced and tofu was a bit chewy. The mango salad was delicious as was the iced tea. Again, good food, will go back again.

The kitchen is very consistent. The soups are amazing. The spicy seafood salad is great. So is the mango salad. Not a big fan of pad Thai but their curry dishes are great. The pepper vermicelli dish is great.

We went there on Monday night and there was a sign on the door saying as from today we will be closed every Monday. No indication of this on their website. Need to update your website,!

The waitress was not particularly engaging or friendly, nor was her communication in English very good. Worst was no apology for unsatisfactory dish and still charging full price for the part eaten.

Door was locked, but inside lights were on. We knocked on the door. A woman came to the door and said they closed early... More

While we were visiting Ottawa we decided to have Thai food. We really like Thai food and Talay Thai was quite good. Service was quick and efficient. We share the basil like rolls and satay as an appetizer. We really like the basil like rolls, the vegetables were very fresh and they were accompanied by a good peanut sauce. The... More

Talay Thai on Bank near Argyle in Ottawa has been open for several years and consistently offers fresh, flavourful authentic Thai food at fair prices. I've visited multiple times and have never been less than impressed and satisfied. Favourite dishes include the green curry and sticky rice, but you can't go wrong with anything. Having visited Thailand several months ago... More
