On our last night in town, we were missing our Thai fix, so the hotel recommended this place. Very good! Good Pad See Ew, Spring Rolls, Peanut Sauce, and Ka Prow. Would definitely recommend!

My husband and I loved the green curry and the appetizer platter. The service was very efficient. We were hesitant to eat here because there were very few people on a Tuesday evening, but we were glad we came.

We enjoyed a nice meal at Talay Thai. All dishes were flavourful and quite authentic. We dined early so it was quiet. Well worth a visit for lovers of Thai food.

It took over 5 minutes for someone to acknowledge me. The soup was pretty mediocre at best. The other 2 closest restaurants were close for parties. My second trip here, and I should have skipped it.

Grabbed dinner here on our way to an event. The food was good and service was friendly and fast! Decor could use a little updating.

A little tough to find b/c the signage is overshadowed by a huge SUBWAY (subs) logo on the same building above the Thai sign!! Nice good, nice service.
