Toujours un bonheur immense de savourer ces si bons bons plats, les sauces projettent au 7e ciel! Le personnel est très gentil aussi. Petite suggestion : nous aurions peut-être apprécié que le serveur nous demande si on avait des questions sur le menu, mais bon, ce n'est qu'un minuscule détail. Du pur bonheur sinon, vraiment un incontournable, malgré que ça soit un peu cher.

Service was slow and when food did arrive, a few of the dishes were not hot, I dictating that they were either waiting for the other dishes, or just not served promptly.

Restaurant was busy, which may explain the service, which was ok, but not up to par for this restaurant.

Food was excellent, as usual.

The food was great! We were 3 and shared 3 main dishes + a side of spinach and 2 steamed rices and had plenty for 32 $ per person without tip (we took no wine or beer). It was very easy to hold a conversation and there was no 2-hour deadline to get out of the restaurant on a Saturday evening. If you need to be in a trendy space, just know that the decor and furniture is a bit outdated. However, lots of windows so you can see outside. Great value and food for the money.

La nourriture est excellente mais le service fut un peu long. De plus, nous avons constaté sur place que la table d'hôte qui était affichée sur internet et celle qui étaient disponible au restaurant comportaient des différences et on nous a dit que l'erreur (qui était à notre avantage) était sur internet. Ordinaire mettons!!!Pour le reste ce fut très bien.

The food was DELICIOUS!!! It is a bit pricey but knowing the portion sizes now, I would order less. Tables were a little close together in the section we were in, I didn’t enjoy that. It’s in a cool part of town. I will definitely return!

Excellent cuisine, very friendly service, personalized recommendations, and a very wonderful environment to enjoy your dinner. The owner personally came to us to introduce himself, share hot sauces and recommendations, and check on us. Delicious fried tofu and noodle dishes alike. Definitely check out when in Montreal!

The restaurant was full but it seemed that there was only 1 waiter, along with assistants who served water and food. We waited a very long time to order and then to receive our bill. The hostess needs to learn French - she couldn't understand basic phrases in French, which was very frustrating for the French-speaking members of our party.

Your service is so wonderful. My friend and I ordered 2 shrimp dishes to share with white rice and they were so delicious. I will definitely return here for dinner again very soon. We both come from the western side of Canada, so we are bias when we have South Eastern Asian cuisine. Chao Phraya is a hidden gem for delicious Thai dishes and I'm glad I eventually discovered it.

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.

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.

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.

Joe
