    Great food, great service! We had a reservation and they didn’t have any tables open so opened up a whole table that was supposed to be for waiting just to serve us on time.

    First time at Thai72. I cannot wait to go back. My friend and I shared vegetable dumplings and the duck with veggies in a mildly spicy sauce. Everything was perfect. We both agreed it op was one of the best dinners in a long time. Excellent attentive service. Nice decor. Very comfortable chairs.

    If you are looking for a dining experience, this is not the restaurant for you. Rather, here you will find rushed service, rude servers and management, and a push to get you out as fast as they can. This way the next customer can claim your reserved table. Although I understand the 1 1/2 hour table policy, the pressure put on us, the diners, was inexcusable. Sadly, the food was good but I will not be back!

    The restaurant should consider making the portions of the Appetizer Sampler to 4 pieces on some of the dishes, not 3. It was also very cold inside the restaurant regardless of the spot. Not a fantastic feeling when it's feels like it's 8 degrees outside. Service was friendly, though could've been a bit more attentive. Drinks, food portion/temperature/and quality all great. Will return!

    We’ve been to Thai 72 numerous times before. It seems its popularity is growing and the restaurant was completely full with people waiting for a table (we had made a reservation in advance, so we had no problem getting a table). The food, as always, was really wonderful, with fresh ingredients and prepared with care. The only negative comment I would have is that the smallish space is extremely noisy when it is full, so I wish there could be something done to deal with that. It was difficult having a conversation with the high level of noise, but it is a true neighborhood jewel. I’m hopeful they will consider doing something to address this one negative aspect to ensure an even greater dining experience.

    Very busy with great energy. Got our seat right on time. The chive, pancake appetizer was off the charts, needed to order seconds … crispy spring rolls were crispy… one for the satay, which was recommended and did not disappoint. All in all the great meal we will definitely be back.

    We dined at Thai72 tonight and the food was wonderful. The service was also fantastic until it came time to pay the bill. BEWARE- we were ripped off, we believe they took advantage of us when they realised we were tourists. I attempted to add a $10 tip when paying electronically, then Analaya took the payment machine and changed the tip to $20. I only realised this when I requested a copy of the receipt. I questioned her and she claimed ‘there is something wrong with the machine’. She re-did the bill and I paid - it still seemed too high then I realised she increased the price of two items on the new bill. I wish I’d noticed before I left. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.

    They seated us early because we arrived early no problem, service was pleasant, food arrived quickly (but not too quickly) was delicious, pork and chicken satay appetizers excellent, lettuce wraps, my friend loved her sticky rice and said the chicken was not dry at all, and the secret garden tea was an excellent way to end the meal! Would highly recommend!
