Thai Princess is fit for a Queen


387 King Street West, Toronto

Cost: $10-15 per person


Across from MEC (Mountain Equipment Co-op) on King street is a little gem of a restaurant with a giant green and pink sign. Thai Princess.

You can expect a bit of a wait if you get there between noon and 1pm. Sometimes doing take-out is a better option.

After our crazy long wait, we were blessed with the loverly window seat and started off with a couple of drinkies; a pina-colada and a mango something-or-other. Mmm.

They have a special lunch menu and a regular menu, but I don’t really know the difference between the two…maybe a couple of bucks off here and there? It doesn’t seem to matter to me anyhow; I always order the Thai Kha Nom Jeen (steamed rice noodles) which comes with chicken marinated in lemongrass and grilled, served over a bed of vermicelli ($9.95). I get the combo with the spring roll and minus the bean sprouts (I feel bean sprouts are filler). They can sometimes skimp out on the chicken and the salad if they’re busy, so I’d suggest getting there earlier rather than later!

I find it refreshing and light for a lunch time meal and doesn’t make me feel ill or sleepy afterwards, which is always a plus!

My lunch partners ordered a variety of different meals. Like, the cashew nut chicken ($9.50).

And Combo A ($6.95) …

And the green curry chicken ($9.95)….yummy.

The service is always friendly and although it’s slow to get your dishes, I feel it’s worth the wait. A great place to come for lunch during the work-week.
