Service was good, dietary restrictions are handled well. Food is ok, but not as good as in the past. Soup and appetizer rolls were good, but noodle dishes were somewhat tired. The tofu seemed like it was fried ahead and there was little in the way of fresh vegetables in the noodles
, just a couple of pieces of green pepper.

Talay has raised its bar this year. The food was so good. We’ve been dining in Talay for several years now and this year it was beyond good. We live in NYC, so am accustomed to good Thai food. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Evan the manager is very accommodating and really cares about the patrons that dine in Talay. Thank you Evan!!!

Talay is a gem in Mountain Village. Friendly, attentive service, wonderful choice of small plates and traditional Thai favorites. Cocktails are innovative and taste as good as they look. Try the dumplings, handrolls, and steamed buns.

We were disappointed in our experience here, both because of the slow service and mixed quality of the dishes. We had a 6pm reservation and did not receive our first appetizer until after 7pm. Several of the dishes, including the miso soup, were extremely salty. The steamed rice was not fully cooked. Perhaps the kitchen was under-staffed due to the holiday week but, given the high cost of the food, we expected much better.

The food was delicious especially the Talay Snapper - a knockout! The classic Pad See Ew was also very good - the spice level was perfect. Overall we had a wonderful experience and highly recommend!

I always enjoy Talay Grille. We dined on the Crispy Red Snapper, the Crispy Half Duck And Chicken Drunken Noodles. The fish is served whole and the meat comes right off the bone so juicy and tender. The duck is boneless and served with brocolli, again tender and flavorful. Their Drunken Noodles are delicious! Our serve Johnny was personable and made sure our food came out on time and was attentive to follow up. We will be back!

Service was top notch! Food is a little over priced for the portion but still very good. The only bad thing about the location is that it is great for the Wednesday night concerts BUT every Wednesday night the restaurant hosts some "exclusive " party on the patio and even with the doors open you can't really hear anything.

Although the food was very good, I was very disappointed in our seated table for two. I had booked the reservation on Open Table for 7:15 pm and we arrived at that time to a very empty restaurant. We were shown to a tiny table for two near the back of the restaurant by the kitchen entrance. I immediately asked if we could be seated at a different table, and was told that our reservation was for this specific table #8, although I never requested any particular table on the OpenTable booking. We were also told that we could not be seated elsewhere due to other reservations. During the course of our dinner (about an hour), other parties arrived but many tables remained open, including many smaller ones for two with decidedly nicer locations and better views to the outside and sunset. It made me wonder whether OpenTable reservations are relegated to less advantageous seating. As we left the restaurant, I also remarked to the host my disappointment at our table seating, considering there were still several better unoccupied options as we left.

My wife and I rode the gondola up from Telluride to Mountain Village on our anniversary. We started out on our date at the sister restaurant (Siam in Telluride) but the rude manager there completely ruined our experience. We had eaten at Siam many times before and always loved it. But this time we were forced to escape the bad energy and went up to Talay Grille in Mountain Village. It was less crowded, there was more space, the temperature was comfortable and there was no rude manager. AND the food was just as good as Siam or better!

Had read that the food was very good so wanted to try it. The food was almost just ok. Nothing special at all. Also we made a reservation and they shoved us in the corner by a filthy window with dead flies and old food crumbs on the ledge. We waited quite a while to get the check and I finally had to get up to ask for it. We spent $90 for two of us so I guess I would have expected a little more - better quality food, cleanliness, and top notch service. What a let down.

 (Portland)·Dined on July 7, 2017

Food was decent but not great Thai. Typical for most higher aiming places in Telluride, decent but not worth the expense. Simple taco and pizza joints deliver far better food quality vs cost.

Service was friendly but weak overall. Long delays between visits and few opportunities to catch anyone to get guests even simple needs like additional plates or water even. Again, everyone was friendly but they were so scattered, they couldn't provide service worthy of the cost of the meal.

Would I recommend Talay? Yes, but only if you REALLY want Thai food and any decent outlet will do.

We had the elk dish and it was superb. We also enjoyed the duck hand rolls, elk buns, and pad thai. They also had a great kids menu. This was by far the best food we had in Mountain Village and we will be returning.

We love to go to Talay for the whole Pike ~~ so delicious! This time we started with tempura shishito peppers and ended with the dessert of fried bananas with chocolate and peanuts. It was a delicious, delightful evening. I am so sorry that I can't remember our server's name but he was excellent!!

The last three times we have been to Talay have been very disappointing. The "specialty of the house " was a whole red snapper and it was so over cooked that it looked like and tasted like a dried piece of parchment. The lobster was soaked in butter sauce and the texture of the lobster was mushy. The only enjoyable thing to eat were the steamed buns. We liked the restaurant when it first opened but we won't be going back again which is a shame since we live in the Mountain Village and are close by and there are very few restaurants in the Village.

Any stay in Telluride includes at least two trips to Talay. It is small, so make a reservation. The cocktails are unique, and the food is delicious - try the the dumplings, handrolls, steamed buns, and Pad Thai!

Our dinner at Talay was fabulous. We decided to treat ourselves before the TAB Fashion Show. Our waiter was attentive and when asked for advice-very knowledgeable. We think Talay has the best Pad Thai around, but we hadn't tried it with the crispy duck-really delicious and a great dish to share. We love the steamed buns and the wine our waiter suggested was reasonably priced and went very well with our meal.

The Pad Thai, Curry, and Green Curry dishes were excellent. The pork dumplings and crab rangoons were great as well. The only complaint came from my wife and her friend who love HOT, and their Thai Hot was not spicy enough. So definitely tell them that you sincerely mean it, you've eaten hot food before, etc. if that's your thing. Great atmosphere and location in the Mountain Village. You definitely need Open Table to get a table there. Enjoy~
