Nana Brings Bangkok Cooking to Queen West

FROM THE OWNER OF KHAO SAN ROAD COMES NANA, A RESTAURANT THAT TAKES THE STREET-STYLE THAI TREND TO ITS LOGICAL CONCLUSION

Traditional Thai dishes at Nana include khao soi, tom yum soup with shrimp, and pad Thai

Nana, an approximation of Bangkok’s entertainment district on one of Toronto’s hippest strips (Queen Street West), serves up more than a smattering of Southeast Asian ambience to go with a menu of street-style Thai fare. Cobblestone flooring, plastic stools, strings of Thai flags, and, we’ll admit, somewhat tight quarters, do well to conjure a quasi night market atmosphere. As for the food, it’s an amply spiced mix of familiar favourites—the likes of khao soi and pad see ew are also offered at Nana’s popular sister space, Khao San Road, though the recipes are different—and lesser-known dishes such as “riverboat” noodle soup and southern fried chicken laab. Gelato sourced from Kensington Market’s Millie Creperie makes for a superb palate cleanser. —Craig Moy
