Diner Reviews
  • "Linda's Thai is a delicious experience filled with flavour and great service. Our server made some excellent suggestions and we really enjoyed our dining experience on the patio at this neighbourhood gem. Will definitely be going back!"

  • "Our second visit, and everything was terrific, as usual: food, service, ambience. As was Winterlicious, the Summerlicious menu is great value for money. Definitely you should go."

  • "I had the smoked duck fried rice but I could hardly find any duck meat in the rice. The rice is too moist and it tastes like steam rice. Fried rice is usually drier than steam rice after being stir fried. Furthermore the dessert is very disappointing. I initially ordered a mango coconut sticky rice for dessert but the waitress told me that it would take very long and I had to wait for a long time to get it. She advised me to select another dessert. So I picked the cookies but again they are very disappointing. The worst thing is that the table next to mine got the coconut sticky rice for dessert! Not sure why they did not need to wait for a long time to get the sticky rice dessert?"

  • "We are return customers because the food here is absolutely amazing! It is consistently great and the menu also changes from time to time which keeps it interesting. They are also understanding of and accommodating to gluten and dairy allergies which is not easy to come by! Additionally, they do not use MSG! I can't wait to go back."

  • "It was my first time at Linda's. My friends and I ordered the mango juice/slush, some appetizers, pad thai, vegetables, and mango sticky rice for dessert. Overall the food was mediocre, but I liked the mango slush and dessert. The noise level was bit loud and it was difficult to have an in-depth conversation. I wish the washroom could be maintained a bit better as it was quite messy and toilet paper was missing in one of the toilet stalls. Anyways, it was nice to get together with my friends."

  • "We had a delightful lunch. Unfortunately, not being big eaters, we could only have one dish each so didn't get the opportunity to try some more adventurous dishes. We had various satays, mango salad, minced chicken skewers. It was delicious. I would have liked more punchy flavours but they obviously have to cater to all tastes. Very reasonably priced. A good venue for lunch."

  • "We ordered the trout and the crispy duck leg. The trout looked amazing but unfortunately there was some flavour that was not my taste and I couldn't eat it and therefore can't recommend it. The duck was very crispy and it was delicious. The $7 coconut water is an actual coconut with the top cut open which was a nice surprise! Did not stay for desert but the menu was different and looked delicious. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service was excellent (and I do not give compliments generously). "

  • "Hi there, I have been to the restuarant numerous times and it has always been my favorite Thai Place. I was a bit dissapointed with the food this time however. I ordered spicy when the server offered me mild, medium or spicy and found that it was not spicy at all. There also use to be more vegetables in the chicken panang curry however this time there was hardly any veggies. I am not sure if I will go there and give Linda another try after this dissapointment. I would have preferred being offered an option of the amount of chillies to order."

  • "We have visited several times, mostly during Summer/Winterlicious promotions. This time, we wanted to try some of the new menu items described in their newsletter. The Hoy Tod (oyster omelette) was flavourful with nice texture. The Rainbow Trout en Papillot was beautifully presented and served, with the salted lime sauce with ground pork bringing intense and unusual flavours to the dish. This is the most unique and memorable dish we've had in a long time. The taste may be too strong for some, but if you're feeling adventuresome, give it a try! Other dishes were also tasty and we finished off with the brilliant green Pandan Custard and richly moist Chocolate Lava Cake. The meal pacing was relaxed and service appropriately attentive."

  • "I was pleasantly surprised to find Linda's at The Shops (one of my favourite locations in Toronto)! I had the Bangkok special vermicelli noodles. The dish came wrapped in an omelette and was very tasty! My sister had the spicy cajun shrimp and chicken hot plate. Fantastic! The staff was responsive and friendly. The decor transports you to places far beyond Toronto. I will be back!"

  • "Great food and very nice atmosphere but the exceptional service was a refreshing change. We were lingering over drinks, slow to decide on food and chatting non-stop and our waitress found our tempo and gave us great service and lots of patience. Hats off for not rushing your patrons and letting them enjoy a truly great evening!"

  • "I have dined at Linda Modern Thai twice now and both times have been a very good experience, not only in terms of the food but also the ambience and service. Everything that I ordered on both occasions was very tasty. The food is not overly priced and the quantity is pretty good. The tastes are authentic and the spice levels are matched to the diners palettes. Overall a great experience! I am looking forward to going there again soon."

    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "The decor, as soon as you get to the restaurant and look at the door is nothing but wonderful :) Thanks to the walls of wooden panels, each of the tables felt very private. The food, however, was only mediocre. The food potion size was good, but the Basil sauce for the Mushroom had much to be desired. However, i would still recommend this place just for how good it is for romantic dates"

  • "Linda Modern Thai could easily have designed their space to accommodate more tables at a cost to ambiance and intimacy. This purposeful commitment to the dining experience is one of my favourite nuances at Linda. The staff were attentive and accessible and the food is always delicious."

  • "We have been to Linda quite a few times. The food is always great, and the menu features new items from time to time, which are most welcome. Space is a bit crowded; and hence could be quite noisy with diners so close to you. We missed seeing the owners this time (husband or wife Linda), who were always so friendly and so knowledgeable with their menu items. They helped make our past dining experiences at Linda so memorable !"

  • "Have been to this restaurant a few times. Food getting to be lacking creation - same flavor, style, ...if one he's there one or two times, that's fine. After that, it gets to be boring. Service is still good with the friendly head waitress. Boss is friendly but lacks depth in topic of discussion ."

  • "I ordered the Pad Thai, thinking that a Thai Restaurant would know how to do it right. I was served a cold, dry meal with tired vegetables and overcooked chunks of chicken and shrimp. The overpowering taste of fish sauce was unappetizing. The appetizers were bland but edible. I returned my Pad Thai and my server was very professional and understanding. There was nothing else on the scanty menu that appealed to me. The charge for my meal was waived and the server spoke to the kitchen help on my behalf. My 2 friends thoroughly enjoyed their curry meals and ate everything on their plates. Then the owner came to our table to challenge me on the Pad Thai and started to argue with me about my opinion of the meal."

  • "We have been to Linda's many times before, and greatly appreciate their atmosphere, the staff, and the food. On this occasion, we were there for Valentine's Day dinner, and pre-ordered their Valentine's Day Tasters special. Every dish was wonderful, and the waiter explained every dish to us. It was just great! We also ordered the wine pairing with the dinner, and it was well above expectation. They clearly put a lot of thought and effort into preparing everything."

  • "Went here with my girlfriend on Valentine's Day, been here couple of times before and this place never disappoints. The food is always great and the servers were very professional and kind, with the exception of the girl in the front: we made reservation long ago for the special night, once arrived, we were shown to a table near the washroom entrance and the kitchen entrance, naturally we asked for a better table, there were plenty, but the girl in front just left us standing there while seating other guests who arrived much later and let them have the pick first, it was an extremely unpleasant and unusual treatment. As a frequent Linda visitor I am very disappointed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "As I have come to expect the food at Linda's is excellent. Thoughtful presentation and great flavors. Heat of the dish can be customized according to taste. Enjoy the selection of dishes available on the menu."

  • "For lunch we ordered spring rolls and curries (the yellow vegetarian and crispy beef). The yellow curry was basically a bowl of pineapple juice and vegetables. It was completely inedible. Our server was great and offered a substitution but then the manager came over and gave my friend a hard time about it (first said he it was wasteful and then said it takes a long time to make?). I had the crispy beef red curry which was delicious. Perhaps if you are vegetarian, order the red curry but with no meat because you will be very disappointed with the pina colada soup (vegetarian curry). The restaurant is lovely and desserts were okay ( rice pudding and ice cream)."
