Kon Thai, is the newest edition to the Thai food craze sweeping the CRD. One might wonder if Kon Thai can survive in the Westshore with the Thai restaurant giant Sabhai Thai just down the street. I guess time will only tell.
I have tried Kon Thai and I must say that it is a welcome change to the former site of Happy Wok. Kon Thai did a total renovation of the former Chinese restaurant space. The new space is small, but skillfully decorated. With polished concrete floors and a bright colourful interior, Kon Thai makes you want to sit down and eat instead of ordering and quickly running out the door to the comfort of your own home.
The food is good; however, I cannot compare it to Sabhai Thai as I still haven't eaten their yet. I can pit it up against Zap Thai and must say that Zap is still my favourite. Kon Thai does have a couple of things on Zap, first being the decor and second the friendliness of the service.
If you want good quality Thai food without the fuss, I suggest trying Kon Thai. I am sure you won't be dissapointed.
