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.

Amazing food as always! This is our go-to Thai restaurant and it never disappoints. Fresh and flavourful, I see no need to even try another Thai restaurant in Montreal.

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.

Usually excellent restaurant. Had not been in a while. Prices went nuts. AND, one of the main courses was plain cold, and another was barely warm.
For 195$ for 3 people, without alcohol, NOT reasonable and can no longer recommend. Unfortunately, because tasty.

Still my favourite Thai Restaurant in Montreal despite the average service and ambiance. The food is delicious and it really what matters. The curry is second to none. You can ask for more or less spicy depending on your taste. Make sure you ask for enough sticky rice to soak up all the sauce...

Souper à 4 entre amis, une table très bien placée, au centre de la salle. Mais cela n'a pas empêché le serveur de nous oublier ! Nous avons attendu plus de 75 minutes pour recevoir le plat principal, après avoir été desservis de nos assiettes d'entrée. Et si on ne s'était pas enquérit auprès du serveur, nous serions peut-être encore là à attendre ! Pas vraiment d'explications, ni compensation offerte. Que de brèves excuses faites du bout des lèvres. Compte tenu que toutes les autres tables autour de nous n'ont pas "souffert "d'un problème à la cuisine", on en a déduit que le serveur avait tout simplement oublié de passer la commande. Bien que toujours poli, on a jamais senti la moindre petite reconnaissance d'une faute de leur part. Quand on nous a dit que nos plats seraient prêts dans 15-20 minutes, nous avons demandé s'il nous offrait une bière en attendant. Finalement, on n'a jamais reçu nos bières. On nous a crédité les 2 bières prises à notre arrivée . . . un autre malentendu !
Par ailleurs, la nourriture était bonne. Mais, pour moins cher, on aurait pu manger aussi bien et recevoir du service - il y a d'autres bons restos Thaï à Montréal. Nous n'y retournerons plus.

This is our top Thai resto. We have been to several but for us, this one remains the best. We did notice that the portions were somewhat smaller than the last time, but no big deal! The staff at this restaurant is always pleasant, which is a big plus. If you want great Thai food this is the place to go.
