The service can be rude and abrupt. Food quality is ok. Some of the dishes are over-saturated with sauce and lose that delicate Thai flavor. The dining room can be loud and uncomfortable. The Miramar location is much better.

Two weeks rarely go by without someone in our family visiting Similan, or getting take out. Our go-to dishes are Drunken Noodles with mock duck, Panang with tofu and Pad See Eu with chicken.

Large portions of yummy food. 4 of us had different dishes and we couldn't decide which we liked best. Crying Tiger or the grilled shrimps on the peppers etc.,plus you can get Pat Thai your way. Presentation a 10, atmosphere pleasant. A great find!

Was searching for a place to have dinner and this came up in the searches. Surprisingly authentic Thai food. Ordered the ginger fish but was disappointed that it came battered fried. It didn’t state that in the menu. So that needs to be clarified. Tom...More

We enjoyed our supper here. The food was flavourful, and each dish definitely had the distinctive "Thai" flavours I love. The service was fast, and good. The restaurant is small, clean and pleasant. I definitely recommend this place.
