Thai Princess

Posted by Staff / Listed on March 23, 2010 / review policy

Thai PrincessThai Princess has been a stalwart on King West for the past 13 years. Their phad thai is always made the same way thanks to the owner who is the only one authorized to make the special sauce. Butterfly shrimp atop wonderfully shiny rice noodles, along with the requisite chicken, fried tofu and peanut make this the kind of phad thai most people love and know.

I love this place. It doesn't look like much from the outside but honestly, it's just an old sign, the interior is great!

Their pad thai is amazing. Not surprised it's on the list for Best Pad Thai in Toronto, though I am surprised it ranked 11th.
There was another entree I liked but for the life of me I can't remember what it was called, it was essentially vegetables, thin noodles and a garlic sauce. Delicious though.
They also have a dessert with coconut and chocolate wrapped in some kind of pastry and it's pretty yummy too.

The fancy interior is sort of funny when compared to the cheap prices. It looks really upscale inside but they don't expect their clientele to dress up or anything.

I think it's a great place to take a date. I've only gone there with my gals but now that I think about it, I'm going to take my boyfriend there this weekend!

Oh! You can also walk-in and order something for take-out. Usually takes about 10 mins but you can kill time at Timothy's or Shoppers across the street.

I give it a 5 out of 5 rating.

Great restaurant, staff is very nice/efficient, the food is delectable - I had a green curry with chicken, and even though the waitress warned me it was very spicy, I went ahead with it and was thoroughly pleased (note: if you have had green curry in Thailand, you will be fine with this meal). One downside, a side of rice is $2.00 which ups the price of the meal (although reasonably priced to begin with, around $10.00 I think) - just a heads up. My friend had the phad thai and it was also delicious. The decor is simple and traditional. A definite thumbs up, and I will be returning again and again! P.S This restaurant takes reservations and was our second choice (and definitely comparable) to Khao San Road on Adelaide, which now doesn't take reservations anymore.

Love it!!! I have eaten lunch there at least twice a month for the past ten years. For a real treat, try the curried pad thai!!!
