Khao San Road
326 Adelaide W., Toronto, ON M5V 1P7
The restaurant of choice was the ever so popular Khao San Road Thai restaurant. I had to ask my sister what the restaurant was called because their signage is totally illegible. The birthday sister has been here before, but the rest of my family have not. My mom is a major fan of Thai food so I guess my sister took that into consideration (she's super picky).
I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of the quick paced, overcrowded stuffy restaurant. It's more of a place where you can run in to get a quick bite to eat. The restaurant is very small. If you're eating with only one other person, you'll likely be seated at a table with other people. From the outside, the place kind of looks ghetto. But places like that usually serve the most authentic food. They don't take reservations and they only seat you when your whole party is there. They have strict rules in regards to that and wait times can be long depending on the day, time of day and how large your party is. The service was pretty quick but lacked in the patron and server relationship. I don't blame them though because there were a lot of customers to be served. The food however was worth the wait and having to deal with the tight squeeze.
Overall: Ambience C, Food A+, Service B-, Price A-.

Taken from the site: "Dairy cream first opened its doors April 1st 1958, and has been a land mark for the community ever since. We specialize in ice cream since we use real cream (makes the ice cream taste so much better). We are committed to providing the best quality products at reasonable prices. Fresh fruit toppings and great customer service are just some things that make us the best ice cream store in town!!"
Also important to note, they only accept cash (ATM is available) and they are only open seasonally- they're closed in the Winter.
Overall: Ambience A-, Food A+, Service A+, Price A+.
