Matt doesn't know what he is talking about... how the hell could it taste like ketchup (not unless he means it as a joke and 'yuk' is olde timee for lol).
Staff are friendly and the food is way above average for Roncey, especially for the price.
Best for veggies is avacado & peanut stir fry... OR bean curd satay! You will not be disapointed... yuk.

This place should be called anything but 'friendly'.
I have never come across a server who is so rude and down right racist.
Even the owner of the place was shocked at his behaviour, I wish I could remember his name.

Would never visit this place again.

Nope. Terrible place. I went a few weeks ago, ordered delivery, got there when they told me to (20 minutes after placing the order). They didn't say antyhing to me, but I waited there for an hour. They hadn't even started to make the food before I got there, no explanation, I just sat there. No discount.

Stupidly, tonight, with no other options, I ordered again. They forgot two items they charged me for. I just got desperate and hoped it would be better. Nope. Never again.

The wait staff is compltely incompetent. The food is so mediocre. I would love to have Roncesvalles lose this place, it's such a waste. Don't give them your money!

How many health infractions will it take people??

Okay, here's the deal, walk around the corner and look at the back alley kitchen area and see if you still want to eat here. Insanely third world level gross.

I have no idea why people go here when the Thai Chef is like 5 doors down and is so much better. Name recognition I guess..

I was introduced to The Friendly Thai by friends in the summer of 2013 - we ordered take out, and had one friend pick it up on his way home from work. I was impressed by the quality and amount of food (we order way too much).
Went back this summer (July 2014) shared the vegetarian appetizer platter and green shrimp curry with one friend, the other got mango salad and chicken pad thai (and took leftovers home).
AGAIN very pleased with the quality, quantity, and price. Delicious. Looking for another reason to pop over to Roncy for dinner there again.
