Hi...I've just recently moved to Toronto and from reading these boards, can clearly see most people feel there are very few decent Thai restaurants in the GTA. In so many posts, I kept reading about ketchup in Pad Thai and thought "what the heck?". I've eaten in many Thai restaurants in Ontario and the US and had never experienced that. It made me start to wonder if it's been there all along and I never noticed it. THEN I had a pad thai from Thai Garden (I think), a fast-food place in one of the financial district food courts (can't remember which, sorry) and I knew exactly what everyone was complaining about! Horrible! I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would choose that over a real pad thai.
I've tried pad thai two other places in T.O. -- Salad King (I liked it), and Golden Thai (terrible...very dry, little flavour...I was disappointed given the mostly positive reviews this restaurant gets here).
Anyway, wanted to know if anyone can recommend good Thai food in other Ontario cities? I LOVE Sahla Thai in St. Catharines...excellent food, ambience and service. Any good recommendations for the London area?
Also, if anyone is visiting Buffalo this winter for shopping or otherwise, they have a wonderful Thai restaurant called The King and I. I used to live there and oh...how I miss it :(
