This iconic Toronto spot has been serving up affordable Thai staples for over 30 years

Toronto is known as a teeming culinary hub for all different types of international cuisines, meaning that options are endless for dine-in, takeout or delivery through apps like SkipTheDishes, no matter what you feel like eating.

And when it comes to Thai food, there is one particular standout in the city that has been a staple for residents and visitors alike for decades, that has itself been through as many (or more) stages of growth as the students and families it has served over the years: Salad King.

The pad Thai and green curry are well-worn fan favourites, as is the Thai Islamic noodle, an off-menu dish beloved by those in the know.
