SALAD KING: If you like spice, this is your place.

The food is of very good quality, the service is friendly and competent, and the prices are definitely affordable, despite being located directly on Yonge street.

But really, that's not why you're here.

You're here because of their infamous "1-20 chili" scale. Those lamenting the blandness of other restaurant's "spicy" dishes will not leave here disappointed.

First thing to know, is that one chili isn't anything to sniff about. Ordinary diners will top off at one or possibly two chili. Anything over 5 is pretty much asking for punishment, unless you're a veteran of spicy food. I've done the 20 chili Evil Jungle Prince, and lived to regret it. And then gone again two weeks later. It's that good.

Salad King: Good Value Thai despite the name

Why call it Salad King?

Fast Food style Thai place on Yonge Street. Reasonable prices and good value for the quality and size of servings. It is busy and noisy. crowds are often a sign of good food, and that is the case here.

Not a place for a quiet dinner with friends!

Favorite Dish Enjoyed the 'Evil Jungle Prince' and 'Spicy Tofu'. Top notch!

SALAD KING: Great thai in modern setting

I love this place and their great, very inexpensive dishes. It is always crowded, so expect to be seated at the long tables right next to the other eaters. The space has a modern feel. The staff wears cool black tshirts that you can purchase. SaladKing regularly ends up on best of cheap eats lists.

Warning. Be careful ordering the spiciness of your meal: the spiciness range goes from 1 to 20....and even 1 is quite going above a number 3 is for seasoned palattes (no pun intended).

Favorite Dish The dishes have great names:

Evil Jungle Prince: Egg plant, baby corn, peas, carrot, onion, chili sauce, lemon grass, bamboo shoot and steam rice

Emerald Curry: Broccoli, peas, snap peas, bell pepper, green Thai curry with coconut milk, steam rice

The mango cold rolls are very nice: Mango, pickle carrot, bean spout, cucumber wrap in rice paper with sweet and sour dipping sauce

SALAD KING: Recommended Thai restaurant

I used to go to the university right across from this restaurant. It's located close to Dundas and Yonge St. And through most of my years i have eaten at this restaurant for lunch and dinner at times.
Till this day, i must say Salad King has been one of if not the best thai restaurants i have eaten at in Toronto. The atmosphere after the renovation has greatly improved, with the food still tasting amazing.
Prices are fairly descent ranging from $6-$12. If you are going there for dinner, the second floor offers a better atmosphere than the main floor. The main floor itself are usually filled with university students especially during lunch time on weekdays.

Favorite Dish I recommend the seafood fried rice, seafood pad thai or the green curry chicken if it's ur first time there. ;)

This is a place where you can order your dish by spicyness. They have the chili pepper scale going from 0 to 20. Even if you really like spicy food, you should stick with a 5 to start. It is REALLY HOT! I once knew this crazy guy that would get 15!!! For anyone that has been there I wonder if you know anyone that had gone higher. I got a 3 and that was pleasantly hot, but by the end I was sweating. Prices are good and portions are fair. Atmosphere is nothing to write home about.

SALAD KING: Cheap and Tasty Thai!

Forever popular Asian Restaurant The Salad King has just received a much needed renovation and the results are excellent. A modern interior now compliments the always excellent food. Best thing is that a meal here does not break the bank as most entrees (if not all) are under 10$.
This is a great place to grab a quick and tasty meal if you happen to be on the Yonge Street strip as it is close to the Eaton Centre and all the Yonge St. shopping!

Open everyday except Sunday.

Favorite Dish Pad Thai (obvious) - one of the best in the city, Shrimp Panang - creamy and spicy, great coconut taste, Daily Specials - never disapoint, etc...everything so far tastes good!
