Jatujak Thai cuisine is suppose to be one of the best thai restaurants in Scarborough. Not only through Google reviews but I have friends who have vouched for it as well. There are 3 locations in Scarborough but we decided to go to the one located at 5651 Steeles Ave East.
This location is a decent sized restaurant. Walking in you’re greeted with Thai inspired decor hanging from the ceiling. Of course there was social distancing as well as limited capacity due to current restaurant restrictions due to COVID-19.
We started off with 2 appetizers: vegetarian spring rolls (3) $5.95 and satay chicken (2) $6.95. The spring rolls were nice, crunchy and thick. I hate getting those thin soggy like spring rolls. The rolls came with a sweet n sour dipping sauce.
The satay chicken came on a bed of a mango salad that served more as decor than to eat. Two sticks of grilled chicken served with a side of peanut sauce. All the flavours complimented each other so well, would definitely recommend this here at Jatujak Thai cuisine.
For mains my friends and I all ordered different dishes. The best is that we all get to try a little bit of everyone’s meal! Lets start with my dish, I got a pad thai with chicken medium spice. Yes I know, pad thai is probably the most go-to dish at a thai restaurant. I like to go out of my comfort zone and try different meals but I was honestly craving some good pad thai, and that’s exactly what I received with this dish at Jatujak Thai cuisine.
My friend got Gaeng kiew whan, a vegetarian green curry that comes with a side of steamed white rice $11.95. Curry would have been second on my list if I didn’t get the pad thai. There’s just something about curries that give me the itis. Well it’s the coconut milk of course. This dish was so rich and would fill you up instantly.
Lastly there was the spicy crispy chicken with a side of white rice $13.95 This came with plate full of battered deep fried chicken glazed in a sweet and spicy sauce, with rice to help balance the dish.
For drinks, they have both alcoholic and non alcoholic options. I had to opt for the thai ice tea $4.25. They had two options, one with a milk base and one with a lemon base. I have never tried thai ice tea with lemon yet I chose to stay within my comfort zone and choose the milk base option.
Would I got back? For sure! Decent service, great food that is of value to how much potion wise, as well as taste. You can look at the menu here. Looking for another dinner option?
