Thai on Yonge is a modest Thai restaurant located near Yonge and Gerrard St. in downtown Toronto. Here you will find classical Thai staples such as pad thai and curries alongside some of their more unique dishes such as the pad kee mao. Owner Chef Yut is a native of Thailand who has been in Canada for over 15 years. His goal is to share authentic Thai cuisine with the people of Toronto by creating affordable dishes that are made from scratch.
The restaurant itself is charming and simple, with a dimly lit atmosphere that is perfect for a romantic night or simply catching up with friends. The interior is predominantly wood with some large windows by the front. They have many booth seatings, as well as a bar area with stools for quick dining. There are also many other traditional Thai decorations throughout the restaurant that create a welcoming atmosphere, including pictures of Buddhist temples and statues of Asian deities.
The menu at Thai on Yonge is quite extensive, covering many Thai classics as well as a few more unique dishes. This includes everything from Panang curry to the aforementioned pad kee mao, which is a stir fry with multiple types of rice noodles and basil. They also offer lunch specials combos for $9.95 which includes your choice of entree, free soup, and 2 pcs spring roll.
A go-to classic is the basil fried rice, which is a massive portion for only $9.95. The rice itself was well cooked and had a great crunch, which includes egg, carrots, peas, green onions and basil. The taste was fragrant and delicious, with the right amount of seasoning.
Another dish that is a favourite at Thai on Yonge is the Khao Kaprow Moo Krob ($15.95), which includes stir-fried crispy pork and a fried egg. The preparation of this dish is slightly different from most Thai restaurants as Chef Yut does it with baby spinach instead of Chinese broccoli. It’s a hearty dish that is full of flavour, especially with the sweet chilli sauce provided.
Here you can also enjoy your meal with Singha Beer imported from Thailand for only $4.95 each. Thai on Yonge also serves other delicious beer options, including Tsingtao, Tiger, and more.
For dessert, Thai on Yonge has Mango sticky rice ($10.95 on their menu, which is served with fresh mangoes. This makes for a light way to end the meal that isn’t too heavy or filling.
