Excellent Thai food. So delicious. I got the cashew salad roll and the yellow curry with mixed vegetables (medium spicy-ness) and it was SO good. It comes with rice or rice noodles, I got the rice and mixed it in with the curry right away. So perfect. I would absolutely come back again and might even get the same thing. Would definitely recommend. Thanks for the delicious meal.

Sai's is our favourite place to eat. The staff are friendly, the prices are very reasonable, and the food is very authentic. I've heard it said that it takes a long time to get a meal, but I have to point out that it's not a fast food restaurant. It's real food cooked by a real Thai chef.

Very nice meal. Watch the spice, Thai medium is about the same as Indian hot. Needs more Thai artwork / decor. We also found the food to be quite salty, but we are on a low dodium diet. Next time we'll ask for no added salt, we forgot as we are new to ghe low Na diet.

Started with Chicken Satay, deep fried Tofu and main of Koaw Soi which was delightful and satisfying. Disappointed that they were out of veggie spring rolls, I am sure they would be good as they were sold out! The lighting is bright and is a little cold. But the spices will warm you up!

Absolutely amazing food. A heads up, their Med. heat is about a hot-1.Home made authentic and great flavours. Number 20 on the menu is amazing, and mild enough for kids, everything I tried was excellent. The chief is an older lady who uses her mothers recipes. Do not expect fast service, as each dish is made to order, and she brings it out herself to you.Dish size is a tiny bit small for my taste but pricing is such that I order 3 dishes for two people and we share, leaving very full and very very satisfied.You must try this place.

Yellow curry was a sweet, gummy ball of noodles with run-of-the-mill vegetables (cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, onions). They warn there's a long wait, which I could accept if the food was delicious. They're in a small town, so big city exotic meals may be a lot to ask.Vegetarian spring rolls had beans, which was fine but an odd pairing with the sweet sauce. Fried tofu was good. The service was friendly, decor was freshly updated, clean restaurant.

My food was cold, was not spicy in the least and tasted like my dad's attempt at Thai food, but worse. Maybe I visited on an off day, but my food tasted nothing like my friends food who ordered the same thing. This doesn't taste anything like the Thai food in Vancouver that I'm used to. If you are a Thai fan, don't expect much.

I popped in for a quick lunch and order Phad Thai. I think that there was too liberal a splash of fish sauce that gave it an unfortunately "off" taste. I ate the chicken and the broccoli, but left the noodles. I offered to pay, but the server and owner were aware of my reaction and kindly declined payment. Others seemed to be enjoying their fare, so it may be an exception.

Food is amazing, best curry I've had. But don't go if you're too hungry, the portions are REALLY small. I crave their curry often, but never go because you don't get much for your money.

I absolutely love her food. Very different Pad Thai than I've had anywhere else and I have a hard time ordering it anywhere but Sai's. I eat there often! I have had over half the menu. The yellow curry noodle and Spicy Basil noodle are awesome. The soups are beautiful. Massuman Curry is killer. It's all good.

Overall... Meh - ordered the pad thai which was mediocre, and ordered the cashew chicken which was about 1/4 full of one of those round metal containers. Not too impressed. Spring rolls were good though

Truly awful experience dinning here for lunch on a Wednesday. I ordered a noodle dish and the noodles were struck together -likely microwaved. The dish smelled awful -maybe old and there was a hair in my food. It felt like the kitchen was testing whether or not I’d go through with it. Waiter was good about taking my dish back after two bites and very apologetic.
