The Thai Government Has A List Of 'Authentic' Restos In Ontario & 21 Made The Cut (MAP)

Ontario has bounds of authentic Thai food!

Ontario Thai Food Was Named The Most Authentic In 21 Spots

Ontario Thai food lovers no longer need to wonder if their favourite restaurant is authentic. Instead, they can check Canada's new Thai SELECT program.

Toronto's Thai Trade Centre, the Ministry of Commerce and the Royal Thai Government collaborated to create a program to honour and highlight authentic Thai restaurants in Canada.

The Thai SELECT program offers three certification levels — signature, classic, and casual. The levels are determined and awarded by the quality of food, service, decor, price and design according to their press release.

Signature is the highest level, and Ontario scored five locations with the highly esteemed accreditation. Bangkok Garden, Kiin, Niagara's Finest Thai, PAI, and Sabai Sabai Kitchen and Bar made the list.

At the second-highest ranking, 16 restaurants in Ontario were awarded a Thai SELECT Classic seal of approval. Some cities with restaurants in this rank include Toronto, Ottawa and Guelph.
