The chicken satay made me feel sick and it tasted like dried out rubber. The crispy duck bao bun was absolutely terrible. Great service and ambiance though.

Everything was delicious! Loved the rangoons, short rib, crispy duck, and panang curry. Brownie dessert was also outstanding! Our server Camila was amazing too!!

I lived in Bangkok for 5 yrs so am I particular about Thai food. We thought Talay was delicious. The curry and Phad Thai were cooked perfectly. We also had several starters that were delicious too!
The only thing I thought was odd is they charged $8.00 for chicken in the Phad Thai. Telluride is expensive but that price is a bit silly.
I would highly recommend Talay.

Service was really slow. The waiters brought up appetizers without small plates to share. The food was just OK for the price we paid. We had to wait for a long time to get water glass filled, and to get our dinner check. Not worth going.

It was very frustrating that no one answers the phone, even when they are open. We wanted to expand our table from four people to eight people, but no one answered the phone in the morning when I called at 9:00 a.m.. Our second group of four didn't want to chance to miss a reservation, so they went elsewhere. Of course, the place was empty and there was a table for four adjacent to ours. We got a call back after 5:00, but it was too late. Is it that hard to answer the phone or call back within an hour?

This was our second visit to Talay Grille. Both times we were happy with the food, ambience and especially the service. Friendly, helpful without being overpowering. I couldn't decide on the wine and so the server brought me 3 wines to taste. I shared the lobster tails and the kitchen split it for us - that' doesn't happen everywhere. Excellent yellow curry with beef. The tuna tataki tasted good but was a bit overcooked.
I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly!

Our family ordered 2 appetizers. The pork dumplings were fantastic and tuna tataki was good. For entres we ordered red curry which was totally bland, Pad Thai with duck and that was very good, Pad Se Ew which was fair, and Peanut stir fry which was very good. The ambiance was very nice, not cold which is really nice. The service was nice but not very competent. Three mistakes with our order and bill, but they fixed it... The kitchen was also very slow.

In summary, the restaurant is SERIOUSLY hit or miss.

Tally is on its last legs, regrettably. The menu continues to shrink, the food is inconsistent if not poor, and, as always, it is so terribly understaffed. Why won’t the owner hire enough servers and cooks? Our waiter apologized all night long for the huge delays. I suspect he quit the next day, and who could blame him? Elks buns were raw, not medium rare. Duck hand rolls were shoe-leather. Entrees were mediocre. Time to shut it down and focus on keeping Siam from a similar decline.

Great food but not great service. There was no green tea, waiter forgot our edamame until we reminded him, and food and drinks took a long time. Seafood salad disappointing. Waiter did not seem knowledgeable about a dish when asked. On the bright side, nice ambience and great curry and vegetable tempura.

The staff were very friendly & and sat us quickly, but a lot of things were just off. Our drink orders weren’t correct, we had to ask for serving spoons when we ordered food for five people, the ingredients listed for one dish weren’t what came out, and we had to ask for the rice that we had ordered. I haven’t eaten there in over a year, and before had had a good experience-so I don’t know if there are growing pains or if this is unusual.

Entrees were good. Service was a little slow at times, but friendly. Biggest issue was dried-out brownie dessert, which they graciously comped, but we were amazed that the kitchen could produce something so clearly unacceptable (we’re not that picky), when the food otherwise was excellent.
