The meals were delicious. We had shrimp starters, spring rolls and tom yum soup - both so tasty with just enough spice.
The mains were incredible. I was not able to stop nibbling on my meal, despite not having space left in my belly. Definitely a must-have when in NOTL

We had an excellent experience at Niagara’s finest thai celebrating a birthday. Sue was very attentive and accommodating with the groups’ needs and the food was delicious.
We will definitely be back.

We had lunch around 1:30 on a Thursday in between Christmas and New Years, it was not busy at all. Although the food was excellent, the soups and spring rolls took nearly 30 minutes to arrive but our mains came shortly after. Kitchen definitely needs better timing.
We ordered from the lunch menu ($19) for three items: Tom Yum soup, with veggie spring roll and mains (green curry chicken and Pad Thai). Soup was tepid and vegetables were cut way too large (not soft enough to cut without a knife). The spring roll was fine, a little small if anything. The mains were by far some of the best Thai we’ve ever had. The green curry was so flavourful with a touch of heat. The three varieties of egg plant smothered in the rich, aromatic sauce were so creamy and delightful. The pad Thai was deliciously luscious without being too saucy (like so many are). There was a decent amount of chicken in each dish. We shared the two lunches and were absolutely stuffed, next time we’ll share one lunch with an extra soup and spring roll, which would make it more reasonably priced!

Was good. Kinda expensive at sorts. Kinda sucky that some wines on the menu were from Niagara region (smart and a plus), but they were charging the same amount for a glass of wine at the same price you can find a bottle...which is not that bad.... but could be priced better.
Also the chefs choice for pad thai was a bit on the high side. WAS GOOD. Dont get me wrong, but $24 for one plate....seems a bit pricy..... it was good. However other places have the same meal for 10.95-17.99.
Why was yours 24? Cause the ministry of thailand approved it?! :\

Wonderful! Had driven passed the restaurant a couple times during our visit. Unsure of dinner plans, set an impromptu reservation and 15 minutes later, showed up to a great restaurant! The hostess was exceptional and knowing we booked through open table, got us a great table at the window. Food amazing. You gotta try it!

Sorry, but I had way better thai food for much lower price. Food was overly sweet. Also, I didn't find the staff was very welcoming. All restaurants in Niagara on the Lake was exceptional, but this one didn't give me the same experience.

We went to The Friendly Thai pre-theatre. Two of three liked their meals, one found it mediocre. We've had better Thai elsewhere but it's not bad, and reasonably priced for Niagara-on-the-Lake (not to say it's cheap, the whole town is expensive for restaurants). Service was pretty good although dessert took a long time. Servers were very pleasant and eager to please.

A truly lovely dining experience at Niagara's Finest Thai Restaurant! The service was truly friendly, informative, and most welcoming. The food we ordered, every course, was absolutely wonderful in presentation and delicious. We loved our Pineapple Fried Rice with Chicken, Stir-fried Mixed with Shrimp, and especially the Thai Ice Tea. Highly recommend reservations to this exceptional restaurant!

We ate in the restaurant in a past. The service was good, so was the food. This time it was awful. We had a reservation for 6:15, it was before the play, which started at 8 pm. The appetizer came promptly more or less, but the main dish in an hour, and it was a fish dish. It was 7:20 when the dish arrived, and it was soooooo spicy, just impossible to eat. On the menu it was the most mild fish option(a little spicy). We left upset, and we will never be back!!! Oh, when we asked the waitress why it took so long, she gave a weird explanation, which made no sense. No apology, nothing.

Slow service - it should not take over an hour to receive an entree, especially when other diners arrived after us, ate and left before we received our entree. We had tickets to the Shaw at 7:00 performance, which the server was aware of, yet by 6:40 our meal had not yet arrived. We left without eating, as we didn't want to be late for the theatre. By the way, we had a reservation and arrived at 5:30....

They are very open about their gluten free and gluten friendly options, it is written on the menu in red beside the menu item, however as we had someone with us who is celiac we also made a point of asking and found the staff to be very knowledgeable.

We stopped in after seeing a play. We ordered the appetizer for two and the eggplant. The appetizer is in my opinion overpriced. The spring rolls and fresh rolls were good. The shrimp was quite dry and the rest of the appetizer was shrimp chips. Not very imaginative.

The eggplant was quite tasty and spicy. It went very well with the jasmine rice and the beer.
The reason I chose this restaurant is because it was the only reasonably priced place in the area.
It is not somewhere to go for a romantic dinner or even conversation as it was quite loud. The server was
very good and personable.
I'm undecided if I would return. But, for N-O-T-L, it is a good deal.
