  • "We were a party of 6 celebrating a golden wedding anniversary and enjoyed being able to dine at our own pace with flexible menu adjustments and superb food. Choices were wide enough to suit all our tastes both for appetizers and mains, and the spicing was subtly present without being overpowering . Service was attentive and friendly and helpful suggestions were provided when asked for. The noise level was a little high at times, but the restaurant was full. It was a very enjoyable evening for our party of diners from age 12 to 83. The best Thai food that I have found in Montreal, and the most authentic. "

  • "The food and service were very good, but i found the wine list expensive for what it is. $42 for an saq wine at 16 is a bit excessive i think."

  • "Chao Praya is consistently one of, if not 'the' best Thai restauants in the city. We make the treck in from the West island whenever we want authentic, no holds barred, top quality Thai."

  • "Definitely the best Thai restaurant in Montréal, and some of the best Thai food I've ever had. Very friendly staff and well kept dining area. Portions are just the right size, not too large and not too small."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "A class above most other Thai restaurants. Very fresh ingredients and subtle flavours. The crab starter was outstanding. Very good spring rolls. Pad Thai was very good and non greasy. Excellent stir fries and curries. A good fix if you have Asian cravings."

  • "This is one of the very best Thai restaurants I have been to anywhere. Highy recommended. Great value. Be sure to try the lobster and mango salad which is spectacular. Duck curry is also very special."

  • "Our experience with Chao Phraya, food wise, was spectacular. But overall, we were a little befuddled with their service. We waited for the main course for 45 minutes. When asked why, they thought we wanted to wait!! All that time, they kept filling our warm water glasses (we both had nasty colds) with ice. They replaced it 11 times. Everytime, they would just repeat the error again. Then we waited to wait to place the desert order for 15 full minutes, till I had to go up to them and ask them if they would like to take our order for it. All in all, great great food, but service? Meh."

  • "I love Chao Phraya and have eaten there regularly over the years but they were not up to par on New Year's Eve - perhaps the crowd was too large for them to handle - or perhaps the regular chef was off duty. I had taken two people who had never eaten there before and kept telling them that it's usually much better. It is still one of my favorite restaurants but not for New Year's Eve."

  • "Waiter was very helpful as we were looking for a variety of dishes that weren't too spicy or saucy. Everything he suggested was delicious."

  • "The food was fresh and delicious. We love their cari with coconut and fresh basil. Service was very good. The wine list is impressive for an oriental restaurant. We definitely recommend it for everyone in Montréal."

  • "I had not been to this restaurant for over 3 years and when I returned, I was pleasntly surprised to find that the quality of the food and service are stil great. One of the best Thai restaurants in Montreal, more of neighbourhood type, good for families and casual get together with friends at an affordable price. The food was great and the service was good. Would definitely go back again sooner."

  • "Chao Praya deserves its reputation as one of the, if not the, best, Thai restaurants in the city."
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "I've been there many times over the course of 15 years. Quiet place, friendly and polite service, never disappointed. Pad thai is among the best and you can have it with duck too! Tom Yum a bit oily for my taste and a tiny bit sweeter would be good."
    Dined on 8/11/2013
  • "We have been going to Chao Phraya several times over the past couple of years. The food is consistently delicious, the service is attentive, the seating is pleasant and there is a nice crowd . Lots of regular customers one can tell."

  • "Whenever we are in Montreal, we make a trip to Chao Phraya at least once. It's one of the highlights of the trip. Fantastic food! We've eaten at several of the Thai restaurants in Montreal - and in our humble opinion, Chao Phraya is one of the best. The service is outstanding, the ambience is great - a little gem nestled in a great neighbourhood. Menu has a large selection, food is always excellent. Our favourites - the mango salad, Koung Sam Rod (shrimp in three flavours spicy sauce - ask for the jumbo shrimp, well worth it), Tom Kah Gai, Gai Pad Plik Khing, Pad Thai (a must), Neua Peloth, and for dessert - the green tea ice cream is awesome!"

  • "We had not visited Chao Phraya in quite some time. Forgot how great the food is. We invited friends who had never been. They are vegetarians and were quite happy with the variety of dishes and flavors.. Every dish was delicious, ranging from a tofu peanut dish to a green curry chicken from sweet to off the charts spicy. Definitely, we'll be back soon."

  • "As consistent as ever, great food and service and they don't gouge you on the wine, that's why they have been there for so long."

  • "Some of the best thai food Ive ever had, super friendly staff"
    Dined on 4/26/2013
  • "Have heard lots of great reviews about Chao Phraya and I really wanted to love this popular place... but unfortunately it was both hit and miss. Some of the dishes were quite good (e.g. chicken dumplings and shrimp with garlic and pepper), but other basic dishes like the green mango salad and pad thai were well below expectations. Similarly, the green curry we tried was good but the red curry dish was sub-par. The menu is huge so I'm sure there are lots of good options to choose from but, overall, I wouldn't say this is the best thai food out there."

  • "Delicious food, comfortable surroundings, a wide and varied menu."
    Dined on 3/30/2013
  • "I really loved thai food so I expected a lot from Chao Phraya. Expectations were met! The waiters really take time to explain you the plates on the menu. We were 2, we both had the seafood tom yum soup and it was delicious. We then shared the calamari salad, spicy with lime and so flavorful. The waiter asked if we wanted it less spicy. Then I had the shrimps sauteed with hot chili, onions and shallots, and my dad the same except it was calamari. Both were delicious, the sauce was amazing, I recommend to take the calamari instead of shrimps which were really good. We were so full at the end that we couldn't have dessert. It was a great experience, I will go back!"

  • "outstanding Thai food, and they were willing to make dishes specific to the customer, for example they did not have beef pad thai on the menu but were willing to do it. In addition the servers were very attentive, I did not have to ask for a refill of water once. Quiet atmosphere and an extensive wine list would make this a romantic place for dinner, and yet it would also be suitable for a larger group as well. The decor was modern and well maintained and the washrooms were clean. Overall I would recommend anyone who enjoys Thai food, this is the best Thai food that I have had in Montreal."
