Should have checked this site before I went to this restaurant!!! We were a group of 3 visiting Thais and 3 North Americans who have lived in Thailand. All of us love and are very familiar with Thai food. Chao Phraya Thai is a far cry from how Thai food should taste. Perhaps the explanation lies in the fact that the owners are Chinese. The host spoke a little Thai but I'm not sure if she's ever been to Thailand otherwise, she could advise the Chinese cook how the food should taste. The appetizers were the best part of the meal, but for the most part, not Thai. Service and presentation were good. I'll never return until I see consistently good reviews.

We were a group of 8, of this 7 were disappointed and 1 liked this place. The ambiance and service were good. The food was another story. The calamari was tasteless and limp as if it had been steamed. The roast lamb had good texture and doneness, but FLAVORLESS, we fought for the lemon slices to add extra zip. When you've enjoyed the pita bread the most, you know there is a problem.
The place was busy and it had us wondering if these people knew what good authentic Greek food was like. But, then there's still a market for Canadianized Chinese food. To each his own I guess.
Another disappointing aspect was the cheezy lounge act they had that night. C'mon, who wants to listen to Neil Diamon, James Taylor etc. with your meal, wouldn't it be more appropriate to have GREEK music.
The cost is slightly on the expensive side, I don't mind paying more if...it's worth it. This was the first and last time I visit this restaurant.
