Went here for lunch yesterday and was impressed from the moment we walked in. The decor is very pleasing and the hostess was very welcoming. The lunch menu had a large number of choices, so we were not wanting...First, we over-ordered. Portions are very large, but the waiter was quick to offer take away containers. We tried the summer rolls which were not only great, but cut sushi style, which definitely better for sharing. We also order the steamed dumplings and although they were good, they were not our favorite of the three appetizers. Surprisingly, the fried wontons with a white meat of chicken filling stole the show for us. In fact, an order of those with a soup would be just about perfect. Speaking of soup, our entrees came with a choice of soup or small salad. We both went for the soup and it was a lightly ginger flavored chicken broth with chopped white meat of chicken and pad thai style noodles. The broth was perfectly clear and free from any fat. Absolutely loved it and had the leftovers tonight. Just as good. The chicken pad thai was just ok. It had a pretty thick sauce and was a little more wet than my husband likes. There were also no peanuts on it or with it. Some of this, of course, is personal preference, but he said he would order something else next time. I had the sweet and sour pork and it was very good and was authentic thai and by that I mean that the pork was not battered and deep friend. I would get it again. There are so many menu choices that next time I will try a curry or one of the other stir fry style dishes. All the plates I saw looked good and everyone seemed to be digging in. This is definitely the best Thai food we have discovered in the area.

Good food, good service, prices moderate. Pad thai especially was yummy. Bit expensive for thai at dinner but worth it.

We've eaten at Talay many times over the years. Never had a bad meal, or experience, and always good service.

Chef Charlie and his Momma arealways welcoming and the food amazing. There simply is no other Thai restaurant in Palm Beach Gardens or the north end of the county that compares.

This place is truly worthy of it's great zagat rating and word of mouth referral. We tried it for lunch. The atmosphere is cute, real tuk tuk in display and the ambiance is quaint. The service was superb. The food, truly authentic and delicious. The appetizer we tried was the tuna tare tare on wonton, fresh and beautifully presented. The fried salmon belly pieces is just scrumptious. The ck pad Thai was great, the pad siew noodle dish was excellent. I am looking forward to our next visit to try the other items on the menu.
