This is a great Thai spot with fantastic food and great service. The restaurant is spotless and the wait staff are very friendly and helpful. We ordered several dishes and were happy with everything. I will definitely return to Talay Thai!

“Great food, lovely settings, warm and very quick service.”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

The place is spotless, decor is fine in the asian style.
This restorant is located not far from the freeway exit, but can be difficult to spot from outside.
The specialties are trully oustanding. We were slightly disapointed by the noodles
Spicy food is clearly mark out on the menu and we were able to order not spicy for the kids.

“Undecided”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Went to Talay Thai based exclusively on the rating and reviews of Trip Advisor. Yes the restaurant is spotless and elegant. However the food is the big question. My teenage daughter had a vegetarian stir fry in peanut sauce and it was outstanding. Simply outstanding. I had the pad thai and it was very poor in terms of taste and quality. Much below the fast food pad thai you would get at the local food court. The noodles were doughy and tough. Perhaps a wrong choice on my part. Perhaps an error on the part of the chef. The service is efficient and a matter of fact.

I am undecided if I would return given that China town is such a close alternative.

Pineapple duck curry served in a pineapple. Makes me question my atheism.
