Salad King (340 Yonge Street) is one of Toronto’s most well-known Thai restaurants situated right next to the Ryerson University campus and between College and Dundas station on the subway line.
I love the atmosphere of this place. I usually come by myself for a quick bite and break from being in the library, and am seated at one of the many long tables. It’s definitely a lot roomier and quieter during their weekday mid-afternoon hours – the place is packed and can be a little overwhelmingly busy during normal meal times. Service has always been pretty good regardless though. And the food as well! The main dishes come in considerably large portions and I almost always have to pack up my leftovers.
Overall: vibrant and trendy decor, good food, always fast and friendly service.
Here are a collection of pictures of the food and drinks I’ve tried over a series of visits I’ve made to this place. I’ll probably continue to come here as long as I’m a poor and hungry student around the Ryerson campus.
Enjoy the food pics~
A simple side dish and I loved it! The chicken was great and the peanut sauce was awesome. :D
This is one of my favourites. :) A small-sized soup with a nice amount of spiciness and great flavour.
Probably the most well known Thai dish. Maybe I was just expecting too much, especially after hearing so much about this place and eating varieties of this for a third of the price in Thailand, but something about the sauces didn’t particularly do it for me. I might just have to try this again sometime.
This dish was alright – nothing noteworthy about it. It wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t particularly consider it a must-try.Noodles in a coconut-based curry~ This dish is off-menu and I only found out about it after reading this review. Anyway, it’s DELICIOUS and not to be missed!
I love mango sticky rice, but my mango here was sour and I would have liked more coconut milk and palm sugar. I didn’t find it particularly appetizing.
I wasn’t expecting it to be so bubblegummy. It’s probably due to the kind of flavoured medicine I would take as a kid, but unfortunately I couldn’t help but associate this drink with that. :( Should have gone for the Thai iced tea instead!
