Pai is somewhere that’s always packed, and there are a lot of very good reasons for the constant lines: the chef is behind some of Toronto’s best Thai restaurants, this spot is located in the middle of the entertainment district, and all the dishes (especially the Northern Thai specialties) are consistently excellent. Sure, you’ll find the usual suspects like pad thai, papaya salad, and green curry, but the real highlights are the deep-fried Grabong squash fritters, which come with a tangy dipping sauce, and the tender moo ping barbecue pork skewers. The restaurant is super close to many of the city’s theaters, so it’s a great place to come with a group before going to see a show.
