Yelp/Bow Thai Restaurant
Here you will find a simple yet extensive menu of Thai classics, including appetizers, soups and salads, rice dishes, noodles, curries, Thai style fried rice, seafood and desserts. They even offer lunch specials for weekdays between 11 am – 3 pm. Portions are decent in size and you will find your dishes to be both flavourful and delicious!
A good start to the meal is with their appetizer platter. This platter comes with a mix of green mango salad, spring rolls, fresh rolls, calamari, chicken satay and samosa served with sweet & sour and peanut sauce. With this dish you’ll get to try a bit of everything; definitely great for sharing! The spring rolls were crispy and the pork filling was savoury and tender, not dry at all like some can be.
A must-try is their original Bow Thai Fried Rice, a rice dish cooked with minced meats, eggs and Thai-style seasonings. This fried rice is full of flavourful toppings including carrots, onions and green peas! The plate is generously filled with ingredients making it very hearty. The portion size was perfect for one person or good to share between two people.
The Red Curry with Chicken here is another standout item! This curry is rich and hearty, with a creamy coconut milk base and generous chicken pieces. The chicken was super tender and the curry wasn’t too spicy (but not bland either. It’s served with steamed white rice so you can pour it over to enjoy this meal traditionally.
