Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food and service. The best Thai restaurant we've been to outside of Thailand. "
    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."

  • "Great Food and service.soup was great but serving size a bit too small for the price."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "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)."

  • "This is the first time I had been for lunch and found it very noisy and distracting. When the "lunch crowd" left, it was much better and you could hear the music which I hadn't even realized was playing earlier. Much prefer dinner."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Pleasant, friendly & lovely staff welcomed four of us. The owner Linda is one great owner. She has no pretense and a lovely person to deal with. I will come back to this place many times for sure. Keep up the good work Linda."
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "We are repeat customers and love both the food and ambience of Lindas. Great curries, great apps and great service. Need I say more."
    Dined on 10/30/2013
  • "It's so enjoyable going to Linda's. A lot of times Linda is there to chat with her customers and describe the new dishes on the menu. I've been quite a few times and tried their regular menus, specialties and even winter/summerlicious and there's nothing to complain about. Even when busy, the staff is helpful and considerate. They're on top of getting you anything you need and do not over do it by asking too many times. The food always tastes great - some of my favories include the pad thai and their curries, but you can't go wrong with just picking anything off the menu. The atmosphere is great and really comfortable and you don't feel the pressure to have to wrap up and leave. You can sit and chat over a cup of thai tea or coffee!"

  • "The food is tasty and well-presented. Perhaps it was our choices, but we found our dishes could have been less salty."
    Dined on 2/10/2014
  • "Very enjoyable. Friendly staff and very good food. Thanks very much."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I've eaten at a lot of Thai restaurant, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was Thai with a twist. Had the Tom Kah Gai (chicken coconut soup), crispy beef panang for the main course, and deep fried banana for dessert. Both the soup and the main were exceptional, but the fried banana was okay, nothing special. I also tried mango salad which was great and different from typical mango salad you get at most Thai restaurants. Presentation of food was great, the service excellent (catered to my mom who can't tolerate much heat in her food) and the ambiance was superb (surprisingly quiet for an Asian restaurant). I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who love Thai food, and will definitely be coming back."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "The food was nothing like any other Thai food I've ever had. It was so full of flavour. We tried their Winterlicious lunch menu and it was great. The food was delishhhhh, serving was huge and the service was superb. This is the first restaurant I tried in Winterlicous that really treated you like you are a paying customer, unlike other restaurants that cheat you out because you are paying a little less than normal prices."
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "I was disappointed that the regular menu was not available due to winterlicious. and I was forced to order something I didn't enjoy."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Took my friend here to celebrate her birthday, and also happened to be Winterlicious as well. Decorations were very clean, tasteful, and classy. Enjoyed that the tables were separated by slatted barriers instead of full walls, as it kept the room open but still allowed for privacy. Food was amazing. Modern, authentic Thai food done very well."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Loved the chicken coconut soup and kao soi was delish! Excited to go back to try some other dishes."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Delicious curry. Not really a fan of the tom yum soup or the sticky mango rice for dessert. But if you pick curry, you can't go wrong."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Our lunch was in conjunction with the Winterlicious, which we had a chance to study the menu prior dining there. The reservation (through Open Table) was spot on, and we would not have gotten a table otherwise, it was busy. The food was delicious and ample, albeit a tad slow (it was at the height of lunch hour, the place was packed). The service was excellent, friendly, prompt."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "The staff is very friendly and polite. I think it was the owner, Linda, who came to our table personally to say hi. A very positive experience overall. Food was great, we went during winterlicious and the food was ok. I much prefer their regular a la carte!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Our group of 4 dined here during the Winterlicious 2014 event. We all loved our meals thoroughly. The food was free of MSG and it was easy to find dairy free and vegetarian options. Linda was there as well. She was a very lovely lady and made for some pleasant conversation. Our server was kind and service was prompt. When we asked her questions regarding the food items, she tried her best to answer them but she did not have all the answers. The portions were not too large and an acceptable size. Overall, the food was absolutely delicious and we will be back!"
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "I was just disappointed at our server's inability to satisfy her customer - well first and last customer that is. I was at your restaurant for winterlicious. Everything should have been nice until I tasted the dessert I chose. The server saw that I didn't touch it when she cleared our table. I told her I didn't like it. And she didn't do anything. She's could have offered something on the house right? But what she did is just give us the bill. And then when I made a mistake putting in the right PIN (when I was paying), I had to ask her to do it again, you know what she did, she handed me the debit machine and left for a good while. We had to wait for her just to get my receipt. Not good!"
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "A friend of mine told me about Linda's Thai - and it is everything she told me and more. The food is excellent. The flavours and spices of each dish I tasted were a delight. I will keep coming back for more. The owners have another restaurant downtown - Salad King - so there are two wonderful places to enjoy their amazing cuisine."

  • "I went with my friend yesterday and they claimed that my reservations were an hour later. I showed the manager my reservation on my phone and he only gave me a table because another party didn't show up. After we ordered, my friend and I got our appetizers on time... but our entrees never showed up. After 45 mins, our waiter came back, with our appetizers AGAIN and looked confused when we said we already got that order. She quickly went to get our entrees and got my order wrong. Another waiter came to correct my order and I was already pretty mad at this point - but then our waitress came back and brought our desserts... before we even finished our meal! Definitely not coming back. The taste of the food can't save the horrible service."

  • "What a wonderful experience. Our table for 6 was in a quiet nook. We were visited by Linda herself, who gave a toy to each of my grandsons, and they also provided plastic plates, cups, and cutlery for the little ones. And all of the food was fantastic. Even though a lot of Thai food is very hot, we were given a choice of mild, medium or hot, so everything was to everyone's taste. All the food was beautifully presented, too. We will definitely return."

  • "I love the Pangpang beef. Service is good and waiters are friendly and patient. The interior decoration has a really Thailand taste. Will come back to try more dishes."
    Dined on 2/2/2014
  • "We loved the crispy beef panang. The sticky rice mango was a bit on the bland side. We would still come back tho because the other parts of our Winterlicious meal was fabulous! Now we want to check out the regular menu which we expect to be as delish. The service was filled with attentive waitstaff and the ambiance was perfect for bringing family and friends to."

  • "I came here for Winterlicious - it was a great and comfortable place for a get-together with a couple of girlfriends. The environment was loud enough for conversation. For apps, I had the coconut chicken soup. The chicken was very tender! I had the Crispy Penang Curry Beef. The curry was orange in color (so pretty) and had a lot of coconut mlik. The crispy pastry wrapped around the tender beef gave the dish an interesting blend of textures. Service was really slow for Winterlicious, but we didn't mind because we were a bunch of chatty girls :)"
