We've been twice and enjoyed the door and service each time. Recommended to friends who also enjoyed.
Our server, Sue was engaged and genuinely friendly. Will definitely revisit when in NOTL.

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.

One of our favorites in Niagara-on-the-Lake. The food is delicious, the service pleasant, and the restaurant is just steps away from the Festival Theatre.

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!

Excellent food and attentive but not overbearing service. The menu is relatively short: four basic dishes with three variations on each (three noodle, three curries + choice of protein). Overall, really great food. Very busy dining room.

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.

This was the third time we've eaten here.
Previously we've always been very satisfied with the food, the selection, and the service.

On this visit however, we had a 7:00 show to attend so we booked in advance online. We arrived right on time at for the 6:00 o'clock reservation. There was some initial confusion as to where to seat us, but it was resolved quickly.

Because we we feeling a bit rushed we thought we'd make it an easy order and so we skipped appetizers and alcohol, and ordered only one single dish each with some fruit juice; a stir fry item for my wife and the beef salad for me.

Then we waited...over 25 minutes we sat, getting more anxious. The server then dropped by to inform us that our meal was "up next". With more than 30 minutes now gone we were unsure of whether we'd have time to eat or have to cancel and leave.

Finally the food came and we asked for the bill so that there would be no further delay when we had to go. It came, and we paid in advance.

As to the food, my wife's was excellent. It looked beautiful and and was elegantly served. She thoroughly enjoyed it. My beef "salad" however, was underwhelming, not what I was expecting. The meat was OK but it was placed on top of two small pieces of lettuce and some onion slices then spicy sauce poured over everything.

It tasted OK but the lettuce was overpowered by the heat of the sauce and rendered limp and unappetizing. And of course there wasn't a lot of it to begin with.
Hardly a salad, just meat strips and sauce. And remember, this was all I had for my meal.

We made it in time for the show but we were not relaxed and I was still hungry.

This restaurant has become a new favourite when we are in NOTL and until Sunday we've always come away very pleased with everything.

This may have been an isolated situation, and to be fair, it was busy. However, it is servicing a theatre-going clientele and to be left seated & waiting 30 minutes for a simple food order should not happen.
