Our Favourite Restaurants in Regina
Last week, we covered our favourite restaurants in Moose Jaw. Now it’s time for another Saskatchewan city: Regina. Regina’s food scene is often underrated because it is a smaller city and tends to be overshadowed by larger cities in the country. However, Regina has an eclectic mix of restaurants that offer a variety of cuisines from around the world.
The city also boasts locally owned eateries that focus on fresh ingredients and creative recipes, as well as high-end dining experiences with top chefs creating unique dishes. On top of this, Regina has ample opportunities for foodies to explore its farmer markets and specialty stores, offering unique flavours from all around the globe. All in all, Regina’s overlooked food scene is worth exploring for anyone with a taste for culinary adventure.

Siam Authentic Thai Restaurant
The best Thai food in Regina. Possibly the entire province. Siam Restaurant sure gives Nit’s Thai Food in Moose Jaw a run for their money. Make no mistake, both are great, but Siam’s menu is only authentic Thai food. Our favourites include the fried larb sticks, hot shots (spicy shrimp and basil broth shots), cashew chicken and kra pao shrimps. If you somehow have room for dessert, try their mango sticky rice!

Caraway Grill has 2 locations in Regina and another in Saskatoon. It doesn’t matter which you eat at, but some say their flagship location downtown is best. It can get fairly busy, especially on weekends, and Caraway doesn’t take reservations so if you’re the type to get hangry, you better show up early for dinner!
In all honesty, the whole menu is worth exploring and it’s hard to pick out clear cut favourites. Roasted paneer tikka masala, vindaloo chicken, gulab jamun, chicken korma…we have to come back and try it all!

Bar Willow Eatery
Bar Willow Eatery is a gem of a restaurant, serving regional dishes taking advantage of Canadian produce and a carefully curated wine selection. PEI mussels, fresh pickerel, scallops…we love seafood and Bar Willow hits the mark.
