Lime - a good spot for Thai food in Midtown

Yonge and Eglinton is a great place to find something to eat with all the offices around there. I would always walk by Lime, which is a Thai cuisine restaurant. The restaurant has large open concept windows in the front so it's easy to get a good glimpse of what the restaurant looks like. We finally decided to try it on our lunch break.

We went for lunch around 11:30 so it was still pretty dead inside, I imagine it probably picks up and gets busier closer to 12:30. They have amazing lunch deals that range from 8.99 to 10.99 depending on what you get but it includes a soup and an entree.

The service was not that great. There was only one other table seated at the time but the server was still slow getting the drinks and taking our order. He would stand around even though there was no one else to serve.

I decided to order the chicken pad Thai with a wonton soup.

The wonton soup was definitely a good way to start the lunch for something warm on such a cold day. The broth itself was flavourful without being too overwhelming and the meat wonton was good as well.

Next was the pad thai with Spring rolls and baby greens salad. My co workers had told me that their portions were small prior to going but I decided to give it a try anyways. The pad thai was more than enough and I was definitely full after the meal. The dressing on the salad was a light vinaigrette dressing that packed a lot of punch. The spring roll was generous in size and definitely fresh.

The Green Chicken Curry was delicious.  It had a good amount to pour over the rice.  The curry itself had a good amount of coconut milk in it and it was a bit spicy (but not too spicy) and the vegetables and chicken was cooked well. The side salad was also very good - it was fresh and the citrusy dressing went well with the curry.
