food is good although on the expensive side for Thai. Good size helpings. They could make it more reasonable if they didn't charge $4 each for tiny bowls of rice and $12 plus for 4 small vegetarian spring rolls.

Use to be very good but that place went down. The service is also horrible. Dumpling arrived with peanut sauce arrived cold and fried noodles with tofu and shrimps had 4 pieces of that inside and the rest was a big plate of noodles. Will not go back unfortunately.

Food was excellent. Service was great from the people filling up glasses and doing the service. But the ones taking the orders were very cold and smileless. That’s the only improvement I can see. I will definitely return

Had not been to Chao Phraya in many years and was please to see that it was still as tasty as I remember it. I found the portions a little small based on the price but the quality and taste was excellent so I will not complain about the small portions, next time I'll just order an extra dish and experience one more item to enjoy.

Dissatisfying. I used to be a huge fan of this restaurant. I believe they have changed owners in the past few years and food has gone downhill, ever since. A bottle of wine, an entrée and 3 dishes cost us $200. The fried tofu was dry and we couldn’t even eat it. We left there hungry with 3/4 of the food left on the table.

Service was outstanding.

We have yet to be disappointed with the quality and hospitality .

The dishes have flavors and textures that are exquisite and exotic .
If you have a flare for Spicy 🌶 this is a place that will it disappoint!

Cannot wait to go back again !

The food was average. The service was attentive. Not worth the money. I've had better food court Thai food for less than half the price. Bottom line - not worth the high price tag. Not recommended.

LE MEILLEUR THAÏ DE MONTRÉAL. Le service est courtois, les conseils de la serveuse sont pertinents. le rapport qualité-prix est très bon compte tenu de la qualité et du goût des aliments.

Hello-

To start off, we are long time Montreal foodies. We weekly sample Montreal's best.

We were introduced to you many years ago and have been coming to your establishment since - approximately 10x/year. It used to be one of our favourite restaurants and I have been lauding it as the best Thai in Mtl but doubt it now.

We have noticed the past few times we visited that although the service is till very good, the value of our money has dramatically decreased as has the quality of food.

Really hate to stop dining there but will likely do so.

La hôtesse à l'accueil était pas de bon humeur. Ça a failli gâcher notre soirée. Heureusement le serveur était très attentionné et souriant. On a pris poulet au beurre arachide, assiette de fruit de mer et padthai. Le tout de première classe. Un peu cher pour le poulet 27 dollars qui n'inclut pas le riz. Mais bon le tout très savoureux.

Visiting Montreal, our friends took us to Chao Phraya. We loved it! Our server Tony was excellent. We shared a bottle of Liberty School Cab Paso Robles. Our soups & aps were delectable. Each of us ordered a diff Main course so we had the chance to try tgem all. Well it was so good that I invited 3 other friends to have dinner w us the next night. This time i asked to add coconut milk to my shrimp tom yum soup - everyone loved it & asked for one. I ordered nmbr 137 - excellent. Trip almost over, i went back w 2 other friends again 2 nights ago. They have very inexpensive wine specials. The food was again filling & succulent. I’ll be back on my mext visits for sure. I’m already having withdrawals.

This was our 2nd time at Chayo Praya this year, after having not been in many years. Once again, we were most impressed. Nice ambience, good service, fair wine prices, but most of all, fabulous Asian cuisine. Every single dish tasted fresh and clean, with the quality of the ingredients and preparation coming through in every bite. What a pleasure to experience an Asian meal and not come away from the restaurant with that heavy feeling. In particular, I would wholeheartedly recommend the beef with broccoli and oyster sauce, the chicken in peanut sauce with crispy chicken, and the sticky rice.
