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.

Wine selection is superb.

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.

Je n'avais pas fréquenté ce resto depuis longtemps. J'ai invité un ami et j'ai été déçue. Beaucoup moins bon qu'avant. Salade de canard "haché", crevettes grillées tièdes, présentations décevantes.

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.

I've been going to this restaurant for years and rate everything about it as excellent (maybe not the value).

On this occasion, I'm rating one specific dish as poor (#154). The tofu was overcooked, lacked flavour and was like eating rubber.

The saving grace was the way the owner apologized to me for my experience and offered to reimburse me. He wasn't just going through the motions- he was sincere in his apologies.

Chao Phraya wil remain on the list of one of my favourite Thai restaurants.

Felt ripped off. Uncooked eggplants in the 25$ green curry with shrimps. Been here many years back and loved the place. Whatever has changed has not been good. Now it's not even average.

Our waiter was inattentive and ill informed about menu.

We had a very nice meal at this long standing Thai restaurant.both appetizers were outstanding.dumplings in peanut sauce, some of the best I have had in a while, tasty rich peanut sauce.And the grilled shrimp in a spicy chilli sauce with Asian style coleslaw was the hit of the evening.
All three main meals were excellent. Beef with chilli and veggie s, chicken with fried spinach and that yummy peanut sauce, and chicken in a curry sauce with vegetables.
We had not been here for a while but glad we came to dine.

We went for my boyfriends birthday he really wanted to have satay chicken with crispy spinach and it was amazing. I had a really good Pad Thai. We had a really yummy rice mango and coconut milk dessert. The only thing was the price it was on the expensive side for two people no wine, just two beers, two entrees and one share dessert almost $100 . We will definitely be back

Great food, the quality and taste was really good. We however did find the prices of the appetizers, which were basic, such as imperial rolls very pricey. The wine was also pricey. I am comparing to similar Thai restaurants in the area.

All else was good.
