    Wanting to get out of my hotel in West Palm, I did an online search for reputable Thai. Living in Chicago, we tend to have quite a few good choices. Talay did not disappoint! The lobster pad thai is a great dish! Also had an opportunity to chat with Chef Soo. He and his family know what it takes to be successful in the industry! Keep up the great work Chef!

    A precious gem of a restaurant. Every dish is both a gustatory and visual treat. The staff is efficient, courteous, and knowledgeable. Braised short ribs is the best I've ever had.

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    Both of us ordered our dishes medium which is exactly how they were ordered two weeks prior. His had no spice at all and mine was super hot. I like spicy food but my meal was so hot, I could only get it down with lots of rice. I either got his spice on mine or someone was lax in the kitchen and hit mine twice with spice. Even though I like spicy food my meal was too spicy to enjoy, the flavors were lost on the fire from the chilies. They have great food, in fact they're probably the best Thai restaurant in Palm beach county but they need some consistency in the kitchen when they dip into the chili pot.

    Everything was consistently good. The fixed price summer menu was a real value and showcased their best effort. I had the lobster and it was one of the most buttery, sweetest lobsters I have ever tasted. The owner stops by every table to confirm that everyone is happy and enjoyed their dining experience.

    Visited to try the "Flavor Palm Beach" price fixe menu available for Sept. The restaurant is on the edge of a strip center so we didn't know what to expect. We were shocked from the first course on, the presentation of the appetizers was like piece of art. We tried both the spring rolls and summer rolls, both excellent. My husband had short ribs over panang curry which was delicious. That dish could convert me to being a curry fan, it was really good. I ordered the Hog fish over cashew vegetable stir fry. This hog fish was better than I have ever had at seafood specialty restaurants, fantastic. The dessert is Chef's choice which was fried bananas with two scoops of vanilla ice cream. We love Thai food but this was a whole new dimension.

    The food is tasty and well presented and the service is prompt, courteous and friendly, without being overwhelming. The restaurant has a very good lunch crowd but you can still manage to be in and out within an hour, dinner is also well attended. This restaurant has been in this location for many years and obviously has earned many loyal followers.

    We love Talay Thai. Best thai restaurant in the area. Our only complaint is that you can never get a 7pm reservation using open table. It is either really early or really late. But if you call the restaurant you can generally get the reservation you want.

    flavorful foods and lovely presentations; we could 'taste' our vegetables they weren't lost in a sauce or over-cooked and there was more veggie variety than bok choy as our experience has been with other Thai dining experiences in Palm Beach Gardens; generous portions of chicken with each dish, too - we'll be back

    I read about Talay Thai in the paper and decided to try it with some friends. We live in Delray Beach and it took about 35 to get there - it was in a nice area and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambiance inside. We had the Pad Thai, Masaman Curry, Short Ribs and a fish that was filet for us. Everything was delicious!
