Restaurant Review: Go Thai

Submitted by Gastrofork
Special to the Post


The inside of the restaurant reminds me of the popular kitschy nature of many mom n pop Thai places (and Vietnamese places).

We ordered the Pad Thai & Salad and Curry with Rice & Salad. We also ordered a bowl of Tom Yum Gai and Tom Ka Gai.

Our Tom Yum and Tom Ka come first and they’re both nice and fragrant. But this one is good, not the best I’ve had but better than most Thai places that barely put any filling in the soup.

At first glance, I thought that the combos might not be enough food; however, I was wrong.

The salad is your basic shredded red cabbage with carrot over iceberg lettuce but the dressing is different than most places I’ve been to. It’s a mix of ginger, garlic and sweetness. It’s very garlicky.

The spring roll is large and crispy, the inside is good, not much flavour but crunchy overall.

My pad thai is made with chicken and has a good amount of heat to it – I’d say a perfect amount. The noodles are a little overdone but they still have a nice snap to them. Beansprouts still kept its crunchiness even though cooked.

The curry is packed with lots of vegetables including red and green bell peppers, eggplant and chicken. It’s also served with a bowl of rice. The curry is good, but man was it spicy. Nickie finished most of it, but it was just way too spicy to have more than one serving for me. The heat only affects you while you’re eating the dish, after our meal I was completely fine.

Go Thai is a great spot for lunch. It wasn’t too busy when we arrived, so the service was quick. I’d go again if I were in the area.
