Had a really really bad experience. had one of the soup from the menu. Almost finished when I found a frigg'n cockroach!!!
Went back to the counter. They took the bowl...completely ignored me when I complained...not even an apology!!!
I know they are doing brisk business but any sense of curtesy is completely foreign to them!!! Called there office...they hung up on me because they can't speak english!!! WTF!!!

The green curry chicken is AMAZING (ask for a little extra sauce), I get it with the thai veggies and I am full and happy by the end. Not bogged down though. I've recently ventured into the noodle soup, it's hard to get me away from that curry, and was surprised at how there were lots of veggies, not just sprouts. Some of the staff are kind of clueless but overall are very fast and efficient. Seriously, I crave that curry.... mmmm, going to get some now methinks!

I agree with Melanie that the green curry chicken is so addictive, especially during the winter.

I got severe food poisoning from this place. I had the green curry chicken....it was tasty going down. However, within a few hours I started feeling sick and was sick with food poisoning for 2 days after. Was admitted to the hospital and got treated for food poisoning. I will be reporting this place to public health.

Maybe they should make a bylaw for every proven case of food poisoning, the offending restaurant MUST BE SHUT DOWN FOR THREE WEEKS for 'fumigation' and an education in proper handling practices, all paid for by the owner.

Had the "Mung Chicken"...Not exactly Thai, more Vietnamese. Anyway, the chicken was NOT chicken. This was some sort of porky animal or the dirty bits of stale chicken. The meat was terrible and no one could speak a word of English. We need to stop letting people into this country that have no skill and can't speak the language.

This place is a rip-off!
When they first opened up their portion sizes were generous.

I just had lunch there today and spent almost $14 for 4 pieces of red curry beef, and maybe 4 tiny nuggets of fish and very little pad thai. I could've taken that $14 and spent it at Spring Rolls for all u can eat.

Mean while at their sister restaurant szechuan szechuan at the RBC food court, they are very generous with their food portions.

I got fried rice and pepper beef from Thai Island at TD Center today. When I was eating it, I saw a cockroach was moving on the rice. It really scared me off. I took the food back to the cashier. She gave me the money back but didn't say anything else. I'd never eat there again.

I have been a regular at this restaurant over the past few years.

Today I was disgusted to find a Cockroach in my Basil Chicken. Unfortunately for me I had enjoyed half of the food at this point and am now feeling rather nauseous at the thought of it.

As this was not an advertised ingredient, I returned it to the restaurant!

They did return my money. I said that they may want to check the rest of the Basil chicken they had at the counter, however they had not removed the dish when I left. I hope that they did afterwards. Not what I had in mind for the New Year!
