Good selection and very tasty food. Service was very good. We had pad thai and several curry dishes; each had a unique flavour. Portion size was very good.

Had dinner here and thought I remember this as a great restaurant, but I came away a little disappointed. It was ok - clean, efficient, but it didn't;'t stand out. I will probably go back as there are not really any better Thai restaurants in...More

I love Thai food so I decided to check this place out. Little did I know it would blow me away! Khao has the best red Thai curry I've had outside of Asia, plus they have an amazing peanut and mango salad :)

Best Pad Thai Ever! Great atmosphere, great Cocktails and all reasonably priced. Went there with our soccer team for dinner; everyone loved the food. Very nice staff and owner. Definitely the place to go to for Authentic Thai Food.

Visited with a friend for dinner. We ordered the miang som (minced pork and peanuts on orange). This appetizer has a great flavour profile with its sweet peanuts, slightly acidic orange, and just a tiny bit of cilantro. I always order the yellow or red...More

Authentic Thai cuisine with a great variety of craft cocktails, extended wine list with a great price. We also do take out and deliver (skip the dishes and UberEATS).
