Joyful atmosphere, so colourful, I can see why there is a regular lineup. Incredibly quality curries and service. Also love the pad thai.

Pai was recommended to us by a family member who lives in Toronto, and it did NOT disappoint! Highly recommend reserving a table, as the capacity is limited due to COVID and the restaurant seems very popular. The decor is fun and interesting, and the...staff were extremely helpful and courteous. The food was AMAZING. The Miang Kung was a fresh and delicious appetizer, while the Gaeng Panang and Khao Soi made for excellent mains. The flavours were INCREDIBLE - each dish was PERFECTION. Absolutely RAVE reviews from us!!More

Fantastic food and amazing service. Well worth the visit. We went with our server’s recommendations and were not disappointed. We had GRABONG to start, followed by KHAO SOI with braised beef and PAD GRA PROW with crispy pork. All were exceptional! Our only complaint is...that it was too much food and we had to get some to go. So glad we went off the usual curries and pad Thai. We will definitely be back!More

The service is very good and the food is awesome. Try out the pad thai or their special noodles. Washrooms are clean too.

For fathers days I finally had the opportunity to choose dinner and after searching for all the Thai options in Toronto I selected PAI. The reviews were good and the menu had a great selection. Also with COVID, they seem to be practicing excellent care...as well. I love Thai food and I wanted something authentic and PAI did not disappoint. We ordered a variety of items including spring rolls, red and green curries, pad Thai and khao soi. Everything was amazing and packaged well. Only improvement I would recommend is that the portions were smaller than other Thai places but the quality and flavours made up for it.More

I am absolutely 100% sure that this restaurant was a gringy hippie hangout in the late 60's. The vibe is definitely not Asian .Other than a few dodgy looking Buddhas the décor remains me of a slightly seedy bar in a Steve McQueen movie. The...décor is warm,, low rent andt nicely funky. The fact that the restaurant is below grade and consists of two interconnecting rooms adds to the atmosphere. In any event , the food was very good. My Pad Thai was well prepared with nice flavors, and was a very gorgeous portion to boot. An ice cold beer went perfectly with the food. Price was reasonable and service excellent. I would go back.More

Arrived alone while traveling for work. Sat at bar number two and received good suggestions from the tender. ordered the Moo Ping and fish green curry with yam noodles and hot oil on the side. Food was very good. Not life-changing but good Thai food....I would return.More

Arrived around 5 pm on a Thursday night and it was packed, but we were able to get a table and noticed that the place is huge. Service was quick and I was expecting something delicious... Pad Thai with shrimp was more sweet than spicy...even though I requested medium. Wife ordered Tom Yum Kung and it was okay, likewise for the rice unless you like it on the hard side. Got some good pics, but that’s it...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
