quick and inexpensive lunch specials

the food is fair as is the price and that's what makes this thai restaurant a popular choice for lunch during the week. the soups are great as are the spring rolls and mango salad. the basil chicken and cashew chicken are both really good as well. the pad thai is a tad too sweet.

Great food. Great service
July 31, 2014

The food was reasonably priced and was very tasty. The service was also great. Only thing I would want to wish for would be that they made the dishes much more hotter. I am one of those people who LOVE hot/spicy food. I asked for them to make it very hot "Thai Hot" but was disappointed at the level it... more

Had to visit Emergency due to food poisoning. My friend got sick as well, but not as serious as I was. I was sick for the whole week due to food poisoning, had to visit Emergency on the second day of having their food.

Do not recommend this place at all and will never visit this place again, this was my first food poisoning experience that lasted more than 1 day.

sometimes I actually want ketchupy pad thai.
this place does it right and is so far the best I've found on delivery in the area.
the spring rolls are big but tasted like an overused deep fryer.
when they said delivery would be over an hour and it shows up within 40 minutes Im especially happy, so 4 stars for Pi-Tom.

Delicious fresh Thai
August 01, 2013

Just had a really lovely meal at Pi Tom. Our meals were all freshly cooked with lovely fresh vegetables. Lovely thai flavours, maybe could have had a bit more chilli.
The tables are quite basic, but the food and the service was excellent - and they definitely had their liquor licence.
I would definitely return here for more.

Pi-Tom's may not be the best or the most authentic Thai food I ever have.. but it is A-OK.

I have to admit I am a little bias with my experience:
- I was hungry!
- I was having lunch with 3 of my fellow yogi Yelpers (My non Hot Yoga Date!)
- I was sitting on the patio daydreaming I was somewhere in Thailand....
- We has a voucher thanks for Janna!! YAY!

Services was a little slow at the... more

We went here after buying the DealFind voucher. We ordered the duck salad, pumpkin soup, spring rolls, mango chicken, and two drinks.

Pumpkin soup was great - nice and coconutty; great flavour! Spring rolls were your run-of-the-mill spring rolls. Duck was kind of tough and salad was your average lettuce, tomato, and mushrooms, but drowned in Thai dressing. The dressing itself was tasty, but... more

I found nothing particularly special about Pi-Tom, the name itself is quite unique and I had purchased a deal so the "deal" is valid for everything on the menu except for the lunch specials.

The restaurant was easily located just in the corner, the server was friendly and we were immediately seated. We ordered the Appetizer Platter, Pad See Iew, Pad Kee Mao and 2 smoothies (Mango/Strawberry).... more

Service: Great, very hospitable.

Food: Yummy! They will also accommodate those who love food to be extra spicy (ask for fresh chilies, and prepare to be challenged!); they are also veggie-friendly, Yay!

I loved the glass-noodles w/ veggies. Pad Thai, is always fun to order anywhere. Taste is authentic here, not tomato ketchupppy.

I've got some Thai blood, and have to say that this is one of... more

Went to Pi-Tom's today with the amazing Karl R. I had a DealFind coupon for $40 worth of Thai cuisine and the 2 of us definitely overindulged.

We had the following:

Duck Salad - Wow... Although the salad itself was quite tasty, you can smell it coming from a mile away. My mother grew up in Vietnam, and I am no stranger to fish sauce, but keeping in mind I was sick and congested and I still... more

My review isn't so much for the food as it is for the lack of functioning online reservations. I tried to order food online with a friend of mine, it said the order had been placed annnnnnd an hour later I called and they hadn't received it, weren't terribly accommodating and didn't do anything to make it better.

I've heard good things about the food, but I feel less than thrilled with the... more

Pi Tom is quite alright, you know!

Finally, I got to try Pi Tom's foods. I took a friend and my family there for lunch last Saturday. What a lovely lunch that was. We arrived just before the noon rush. Man, this place filled up fast!

Dad enjoyed his Tom Kha soup. He had never tried a soup with coconut milk before and thought it was tasty.

The sweet and creamy Pumpkin soup was delicious as... more

This used to be a favourite go-to spot when I had meetings nearby. In fact just reading others' reviews is making me crave their lunch special with soup, spring roll and my fav - a generous helping of basil chicken with lods of veggies, rice in the shape of a star and lots of light, spicy sauce.

This was a great restaurant for small lunches, but they were also very accommodating when I brought... more

Located in downtown, so prepare to pay for parking. The parking lots along the Alexander street were pretty taken on Thu night.

The food is fairly good. We had a hot&sour soup which was especially tasty and warming in that cold weather. As entree we ordered duck, spicy pork and seafood medley and we really enjoyed it. The sauce in each one was well balanced, moderately spiced even being marked... more

Being bought up a Markham-Asian, my family's dining-out experiences are always under the knife. I've been to Pi-Tom couple years ago and swore their soups can turn you off their food 8 miles ahead. but with so many people giving it raving reviews and a Dealfind coupon, I gave it another try.

They are sometimes understaffed but their staff and management are generally very friendly and... more

Greetings were not welcoming initially, gradual warm-up, needs improvement. We were the 1st ones there! Slowly, more patrons showed up, started to get busy. Decor boring, mustard/brown small uninviting. Service was prompt, attentive and persistent, no delays. Food tasty, brought nuances of Thai scents sweet&salty, chilli, cocconut and garlicy. Not impressed with portion size of dishes, prov.... more

Over the weekend, my sis and I felt like going out for some Thai food and decided to drop by Pi-Tom's. We ordered quickly as we were starving and went for the Chicken Basil Fried Rice and two types of Pad Thai. The North Americanized (regular) Pad Thai and the authentic Pad Thai. The North American version is cooked with a sweet and sour almost ketchup like sauce, and the authentic pad thai... more

After another ketchup-y plate of pad-thai at a local restaurant, I decided that I had to hunt for a great traditional version in Toronto. Mission accomplished!

A very late dinner on Pi-Tom's patio coupled with pleasantly humid weather made a few of us reminisce of travels to Asia. Usually bustling & full during dinner, we arrived around 9pm and had full reign of the patio! Still decorated from... more

Really disappointed.

Disappointed that ....

1) The rice offered with the meal was dry, blandish, and I didn't see any option for coconut rice

2) Seriously lacking vegetarian options

3) Food was bland - ordered spicy noodles (noodles were not spicy), some sort of duck dish (tasted like chinese cuisine - and not good chinese cuisine either), and some sort of mushroom dish (not memorable at... more

Two stars because food was good. I really, really hate more than everything in the worldddddd when restaurants do cleaning or receive products with clients inside. Pi-Tom's did both. The same waitress that took my order was cleaning tables and spilled some cleaning product in me.

Look, you have to choose if you are in maintenance hours or serving hours. You simply can't do both. It's not... more

Discovered this through Yelp on my iPhone and I am SO glad I did. After being seriously disappointed by the supposedly awesome Salad King (TERRIBLE FOOD ALERT!!) I was glad I tried Pi Toms.

I had the Lunch Combo 11:
Hot & Sour Soup
Chuchee fish & Rice.

It came up to about $13 and was just DELICIOUS!

I will be trying the branch closer to my apartment as soon as possible.

Found this restaurant using Yelp on iPhone while walking on Yonge st one night.

I ordered the dinner special which was some spicy chicken cutlet served with garlic rice and papaya salad. My partner ordered their popular authentic pad thai.

I thought the portions were generous and food was tasty. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely visit again.

My only complain is that they... more

Pi-Toms is my favourite Thai place ever! I usually order in on a rainy (or hungover) day. I change my order every time, and it's always the best. My favourite is the Green Curry (veggie) and the Vegan Delight.
Every single time I get my food from Pi-Toms it is piping hot (even if I take my sweet time getting there or leave it sitting for a few minutes once I get it home) and flavourful and... more

I've got this thing for Thai glass noodles with shrimp. I also like spicy Thai food, so I asked for it HOT at Pi Tom's. This was one of the best I"ve had. Spicy with extra sauce on the side. Overflowing with large chunks of fresh vegetables and shrimp. Portions are huge and I ended up taking half of it home. Sticky rice with peanut sauce as an appetizer was just alright. Service was quick,... more

The food is decent, but not great, opting for quantity over quality.

The patio is nice, and the service is quick-- which makes it an ideal spot for lunch.

Amazing Thai Food! Best I've had to date. I love their sticky rice. Especially the one with a hint of coconut milk flavor. Definitely order the curry if you're coming here. Another favorite dish is the Authentic Pad Thai. Truly a hidden treasure amongst a sea of bad restaurants around downtown Toronto.
