Pi Tom's Thai Cuisine

Delivery Review (Quick Bites)

I first learned about Pi Tom's Thai Cuisine about 2 years ago, and dined at their now closed Jarvis location. The one on Jarvis was located in a non-high traffic area with very little foot traffic, so I wasn't surprised when it closed down. However, Pi Tom's Thai Cuisine's original location is still open, and we ordered delivery from time to time. Pi Tom's Thai Cuisine is one of very few locations that offer the authentic pad thai on their menu, where it's wrapped in an egg.

They offer free delivery for order more than $25 (before tax) and it takes about 45 minutes to an hour. They usually do deliver in the allotted time frame, and I don't recall a time where they went over an hour.


 The Authentic Pad Thai ($12.95) was quite interesting as I have never tried it anywhere else in the GTA. This authentic dish contains a serving of rice noodles with a generous amount of chicken, shrimp, tofu, bean sprouts in a sweet and sour tamarind and coconut sauce. The one difference is that the entire Paid Thai is wrapped inside of a fried egg crepe.


The Pad Thai ($11.95) was Thai rice noodles sauteed with egg, chicken, shrimp, bean sprouts and tofu in a sweet and sour (ketchup) sauce. Unlike the authentic dish above, this one contains ketchup instead of tamarind which you can definitely taste. It's a little surprising that the restaurant tout themselves as serving authentic Thai, and then uses ketchup in their Pad Thai. This dish was edible, but unfortunately it was only average when compared with other Thai establishments that I have dined at. The Authentic Pad Thai fared a lot better if you compared it by taste.


The shrimp rolls ($8.50) contained 6 pieces of deep-fried marinated shrimp rolls and spicy sauce. I absolutely loved these crispy appetizers, as it was not oily and delicious.
