Jatujak is a popular Thai restaurant in Toronto with 3 locations in Markham, Scarborough, and North York. Jatujak has been open for many years and they specialize in Thai street-style food. The owner of the store “Chef Aon” has had a humble start from following her mom in the kitchen to now running 3 restaurants across the GTA. She prides herself in bringing the authentic taste of Thai Street food to Toronto.
Jatujak’s interior is modern but has a traditional feel with its wooden furniture and decor. You’ll also notice some of the walls are actually blackboards where there are many fun drawings on them. This is a great touch, as each time you visit you get to see some creative new drawings. The space itself is not that big, but there’s still plenty of seating available for dine-in. It is a casual environment, perfect for lunch or dinner with friends and family.
As for their menu, they have a wide variety of Thai dishes ranging from $10-$15. You can get everything from noodles, rice, salad, desserts to more hearty meals with soup and appetizers. They also use all kinds of protein in their food including beef, chicken, pork, tofu and shrimp.
Their standout dish is the Panang Curry which has been raved by many customers for being so delicious! It’s not too sweet or salty but just balanced enough that it’s hard to stop eating once you’ve had one bite of it. You’ll notice right away that the dish comes in large portions, which is rare when compared to most Thai restaurants. You can comfortably share this dish between two people.
Another favourite is the khao soi which is a northern curry noodle. It comes with thin egg noodles, crispy fried noodles on the side and topped with pickled cabbage. This dish is always prepared fresh to order, not to mention that their presentation and taste are always on point.
The mango sticky rice is a must for dessert. They serve it with fresh mango slices, sweet coconut cream and sticky rice. This dessert is not overwhelmed sweet and It is a wonderful end to a delicious meal!
Jatujak is always consistent with its food and service. The ingredients are fresh, and the dishes are big enough for two people to share and their prices do not make you feel like you need to break the bank. For authentic Thai food that tastes amazing, this place is definitely worth checking out!
