There a many Thai restos in Montreal, but only some are of very good quality. Chao Phraya has very consistent and fine food.

We've been going to this Thai restaurant for years. The food has remained deliciously consistent, but their prices have increased out of the market! Not sure when I'll be back.

I have posted previously about Chao Praya which has been our Thai restaurant for the last 25 almost 30 years. Probably the restsurant I went the most often. Prices are way up and quality way down. Sometime we go there and sometime we order. When ordering, there is often something missing and it takes forever. As mentionned in another review,... More

Gotta say, probably the most disappointing Thai meal I've had in Montreal. And for the price they charge they oughta be ashamed. Boo.

Went to Chayo Phraya recently with friends for dinner. Overall the service, meal & prices were very good. We all enjoyed our food selection with the service being excellent and friendly. I would definitely come back again.

One of my favorite Thai restaurants, so I decided to go back as I was in Montreal for a few days...huge disappointment service-wise, I was by myself and it took 15 minutes for the waitress to come take my order...then it took 30 minutes more to get a won-ton soup, at which point I ordered the rest of the meal...

Although very expensive, we used to love this restaurant since it's one of the few Asian themed restaurants that cater to my wife's gluten allergy. This past weekend's visit was not as good as ones before: the menu changed, portions looked smaller, our Koung Sam Rod shrimp was crunchier than before, drinks looked smaller, and our favourite Tom Kah Talay...

Having read a lot of good reviews we decided to try it out. The decor is quite nice and since we were a group of 12, we were seated on the second floor close to the wine cellar. Despite the fact that it was Sunday night and there were not too many guests the service was quite slow. The food... More

This the worst so-called "Thai" restaurant we ever went to! The food was very greasy and looked like the cheapest fast-food decorated with basil leaves and other herbs to make it "home made" and re-heated in a microwave. The bill was staggering considering the pitiful fare: $50 per person (and we mostly had appetizers; not main dishes)! We should have... More

This was our first meal when we arrived in Montreal, and it really warmed us up from January's winter chill. Don't come here expecting cheap eats, though. It's one of the nicer Thai places I've been to, and a favorite of our local friends. We had a large party, which the staff were able to accommodate in the mezzanine level... More

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
