In Chinatown, there’s a small, hole in the wall that serves up Thai dishes. The restaurant definitely does not feel like your average restaurant – it feels more like you’re eating at someone’s home since you cant even tell where the kitchen is. There’s just an archway where someone will come to serve you and prep your food.

I went with my extended family to have a quick dinner. I ordered their tom yum soup and papaya salad. We also ordered an appetizer plate we all shared.

My tom yum ($4.95) was a healthy mix of mushroom, galangal, lemongrass, lime, chilli and lime juice with chunks of tofu. The flavours were bright and a nice, piping hot soup was perfect for the chilly Toronto weather.

My green papaya salad ($6.95) is made with papaya, tomato, chili, dried shrimps and peanuts in a garlic-lime dressing. I asked for it hot and it was damn hot. Not to a point where it was inedible, but a good spicy kind of burn.

Additionally, we ordered the Appetizer Plate ($12.95) and Vegetarian Appetizer Plate ($9.95).

In the Appetizer Plate you’ll find spring rolls, chicken satay, fish cakes, curry puffs, golden bags, calamari and mango salad. There’s a decent amount of food here, so it’s good for 4-ish people to share.

The Vegetarian Appetizer Plate consists of spring rolls, veggie cold rolls, deep fried tofu and vegetables. Again, a good amount of food here, so good for 3-4 people to share.
