Papaya salad is a pretty popular dish that many Thai food aficionados tend to gravitate towards. And understandably so! The typical som tam which is usually found in Thai restaurants is sweet and spicy, sour and refreshing, and contains nutty and crunchy elements. But the version most people overlook contains phu pala, or fermented crab, which adds a whole other element of flavor. Som tam phu pala still contains the fresh, crisp papaya you crave in a som tam dish but it’s paired with pungent, salty, and fishy crab that will no doubt convince you to order a second round.
Thai & Vietnamese are a natural combination, one that’s done well at this Uptown fusion spot. Giant chicken wings in a chili-garlic glaze make for the perfect accompaniment to one of Malai’s house-brewed beers, as does the green papaya salad made with candied beef jerky. When it's time to order entrees, go for pad thai or the chiang mai noodles, served in a spicy coconut curry sauce. Pandan Leaf Thai Restaurant in London UK serving Pad Thai and Salad
But for as many sugarcoated Thai restaurants operating in the U.S., there’s an appreciable number of spots doing it right—especially in immigrant-heavy cities like Houston, where Asia Market encourages diners to personally adjust their dishes with condiments like pickled peppers, fish sauce, and chili sauce (nam prik). L.A., meanwhile, supports both NIGHT + MARKET, which puts a hipster spin on Thai street food, and Thai Town’s Jitlada, where chef Tui Sungkamee makes traditional fiery southern dishes.

This Rainbow Vegetarian Pad Thai (with peanuts and basil dohhh) is just really good, my friends. It is really good and surprisingly easy. I took a few ideas I had seen out there in the big wide internet world (vegetables as noodles! Pad Thai sauce-ery!) and made them into this. And I am so happy with how it turned out + the minuscule amount of effort it takes to get there.

This East Dallas legend, more than 20 years old, is one of Dallas’ best options for reliably great Thai food. Definitely order the satay, which is grilled to perfection at the table, and a piping hot bowl of tom kha gai, extra spicy. Pad see ew, pad thai, and Thai barbecue chicken are all excellent entree choices, and don’t sleep on the sticky rice & mango dessert. YumYum Cocktail Competition
This longstanding Lynnwood restaurant's “secret” Thai menu (available only in Thai language) is where diners will find kuay teow rhua (boat noodle soup) and goong pad sataw: shrimp with cluster beans (aka petai or stink beans). Also fantastic is pad gra pow, made here with holy basil and ground pork or, by request, “moo grab” style with crispy pork belly topped by a fried egg. YumYum Cocktail Competition
Lan Larb is a no frills Thai spot on a random no-man’s-land block below Nolita that stands out because it’s so normal. Every other restaurant in the area spent half their original budget on custom matchbooks and artisanal neon signs, but Lan Larb is fine doing its own thing. If you’re looking for delivery, they’ll bring some very good curry or noodles to your office or home. The restaurant isn’t good for any kind of occasion that calls for ambiance, but, if you just need good food, stop in and try some of their Isan regional specialties, like larb (ground meat salad) or Thai sausage.

Diehard Thai fans make the pilgrimage to Issaquah’s Noodle Boat partly because Noodle Boat workers make the pilgrimage to Thailand annually, researching new dishes and making authentic chili paste to bring back to Seattle. Playfully named dishes like Queen of Banana, King of Garlic, Hot Meat, and “Whatever You Called?” can bring on serious heat by request. Recommended: BKK — Noodle Boat’s version of hor mok (curried fish custard), which is stir-fried rather than steamed. AMAZING THAI FOOD IN LONDON - Thai Silk Restaurant

As I’ve mentioned a few times, I’ve been really taking it easy lately in the kitchen. When I say take it easy, I don’t mean making ten minute basil artichoke toasts and five minute magic green sauce. I mean taking it easy as in NOT COOKING ANYTHING. We’re talking life-saving dinner made by friends, hot dogs (gulp), mac and cheese, and chicken nuggets out of the freezer. During these last few weeks, my old self has definitely been food-snob-judging my current self. If nothing else, this experience has shown me that my ideals for cooking and feeding kids have some work to do in terms of aligning themselves with reality. Yum-Yum
Shrimp, fish sauce, tamarind, eggs, rice noodles, tofu, and bean sprouts are all common in pad thai. We simplified our version. Since we rarely need (or can find) tamarind, we skipped it in the sauce. To make up for it's sourness, we added lime juice. Also in the sauce: brown sugar, fish sauce, soy sauce, and a little bit of cayenne pepper. Fish sauce smells pretty funky, but we promise you it's necessary.

The name of this Elmhurst transplant — the Anglicization of the Thai word for children, because the food is meant to be the sort that Thai mothers prepare for their kids — doubles as a serious mandate, urging residents of Prospect Heights to wake up and reconsider what they thought of as Thai food. Try finding pork-blood noodle soup or hor mok pla, a steamed-fish-curry custard, elsewhere in the neighborhood, let alone the borough.

If Night + Market is the hot prince that everybody wants to f*ck, Jitlada is the old Queen that’s done taking your crap. The decades-old Thai Town spot in many ways is the true heart and soul of LA’s Thai food scene. Its kitschy dining room is a must-visit (and a good spot to catch a celebrity) and its massive Southern Thai menu has absolutely zero regard for your pretty little spice preferences. Plain and simple - Jitlada is for the big boys and girls. But those who stay will be rewarded with some of the best Thai food in this city. Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant
This ethnic grocery’s teeny kitchen specializes in palate-awakening heat. Choose among five spice levels (from “mild” to “1,000 peppers”), and make any necessary adjustments at the table stocked with fiery condiments. The choices here include bowls of kee mao (rice noodles spiked with basil, cherry tomatoes, and chili sauce); preserved duck egg curry; and shredded papaya salad with crab, made Thai style (sweet and sour with peanuts, dried shrimp, and cherry tomatoes) or Laos style (meaning with galvanic bursts of southern Thai fish sauce). Most dishes ring in under $8, making Asia Market’s homespun setting all the more satisfying.

I love pad thai and it is such a hassle to have to dine out every time I get a craving and let’s face it, the meal kits from the grocery store are not good. I decided to learn to make it and chose this recipe based on the “amazing” and “easy” comments, and it did not disappoint! So good and if you have any leftover, it’s even better the next day! I followed the recipe exactly using the rice vinegar version and included the peanut butter. YUMMY! Mango Tree is a fine dining Halal Thai restaurant in Belgravia, London
Pailin isn’t the most well-known name in Thai Town, and its dime-sized space (there are maybe eight tables total inside) isn’t going to jump out at you while driving down Hollywood Blvd. But it’s delicious. It’s all Northern Thai cuisine here, and that means one thing - khao soi. For anyone unfamiliar with the dish, it’s essentially a curry noodle soup and god’s greatest gift to mankind. Pailin has the best version in town. The tiny space is colorful and kitschy and a perfect quick lunch spot. The spicy shrimp balls are another must-order.

Pardon the pun, but tourists go nuts for this stir fried dish. Perhaps it's the wildly contrasting textures of a dish that saut's chicken alongside roasted cashews, sweet soy sauce, onions, chilies, pepper, carrot and mushrooms. Perhaps it's the sweetening dash of honey that appeals. Do you really care? The important thing is that this dish works: it's simple but scrumptious, a little bit tame and yet still totally Thai.

In a wok or large stockpot, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and stir-fry 15 seconds. Add the shrimp and stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes or just until pink and opaque. Add the tofu and toss until lightly coated with oil. Add the eggs and scramble. Fold in the softened noodles, fish sauce, vinegar, 1/4 cup water, brown sugar, and paprika and toss for about 2 minutes or until well combined. Add the scallions and bean sprouts and heat through. Pile onto a large platter and garnish with the red pepper, peanuts, and wedges of lime.

The food at Nahm is unlike any you are likely to find elsewhere, and certainly not outside of Thailand. Considering that more Americans visit London than any other city outside North America, this presents a truly unique opportunity to have a meal dramatically different from all others. On my recent visit I took a friend who is a Japanese financial executive who has been living in London for two years but had never been to Nahm, and he was blown away, saying he would soon return with his family.

Hailing from the Northeast state of Isaan, this outlandish dish is both great divider - some can't get enough of its bite, some can't handle it - and greatly distinctive. Garlic, chilies, green beans, cherry tomatoes and shredded raw papaya get dramatically pulverized in a pestle and mortar, so releasing a rounded sweet-sour-spicy flavour that's not easily forgotten. Regional variations throw peanuts, dry shrimp or salted crab into the mix, the latter having a gut-cleansing talent that catches many newcomers by surprise!
Add shrimp (if using) and combine with noodles. Push everything aside creating an empty space in the middle. Crack an egg, wait 15 secs to set, then mix into the noodles. Sprinkle some white pepper, add bean sprouts and up to 1 tbsp. more sauce. Stir everything for 1 min, then add scallions. Turn off heat and toss. To serve, top with crushed peanuts, dried onions and a generous squeeze of lime juice. Simply Thai faces the Secret Diners - Gordon Ramsay
Take close note of the location: there appears to be at least three restaurants with the name Pa Ord Noodles, and not all of them are created equal. This particular location tucked away into the corner of a strip mall off Sunset has some of the best boat noodles in the business, and at incredibly reasonable prices. Diners can choose between thin or flat rice noodles, egg noodles or glass noodles and steep them in a massive array of soup bases and toppings. Be warned, portion sizes can be small so opt for the large if you’re feeling peckish. Heirloom British Restaurant in Crouch End London serving Delicious Food and Wine
Even papaya salad gets the fine-dining treatment at Uncle Boons, no surprise when you consider the restaurant’s husband-and-wife team (Matt Danzer and Ubon-born Ann Redding) hail from Per Se. Armed with a charcoal grill and rotisserie (no small feat in Manhattan), Danzer and Redding turn out smoky seafood plates with nam prik (Thai chile sauce). The crowd at this art-cluttered tavern is as varied as the menu, which is admittedly regionally unfocused, though it consists mostly of Redding’s family recipes. So it’s not uncommon for traditional massaman curry punctuated with green peppercorns (a drier version than you’re likely used to) and titillating lamb larb to simultaneously hit the table with unconventional mee krob with fried sweetbreads.

Having never cooked Thai food or visited Thailand, chef Mark Fischer found himself in a bit of an ah-jaht (Thai pickle) when he decided to open a Thai joint. But after staging at Michelin-starred chef David Thompson’s Sailors Thai in Sydney and multiple research trips to Thailand, Fischer was able to create an experience that is neither authentic nor fusion nor copycat. Rather, Phat Thai is a shameless love letter to Thai cuisine. The green curry with chicken and the pad thai (also called phat thai, hence the name) are each a triumph of flavor. Phat Thai makes its curry pastes in-house—a feat requiring 20 pounds of Thai chiles each week. Wash it all down with chilled Singha; the restaurant buys more than anyone else in the state.

Crying tiger, one of my favorite Thai dishes of all time, hails from Isaan, the northeastern region of Thailand. Isaan is known for having very sapp foods -- flavors that are strongly spicy, sour, and salty -- and serving every dish with a side of sticky rice. Crying tiger is no different; the grilled steak arrives with nam jim jao, a spicy sauce that is so hot it’s said to bring tears to your eyes (hence the name, crying tiger).

Decent service the girl working was very friendly, very drab atmosphere and the food sadly left alot to be desired. I have a very good friend from Thailand who owns a successful Thai restaurant and have had Tom Ka soup before so I understand what it should taste like it was very salty and did not taste like it had coconut milk in it. I also had the peanut passion it to was mediocre not super impressed by the food. Also if someone orders zero stars don't put stars on that box as it got confused with mine and so we were unable to finish meals as we got our meals confused.
This new, slightly upscale seafood-centric Noho spot from a pair of Thai-born brothers (who worked at one of Bangkok’s most renowned restaurants and for Tom Colicchio, respectively) may join the ranks of Uncle Boons and Pok Pok.

This family-owned neighborhood spot at Pico-Robertson isn’t just on this list because the food is excellent. It’s on this list because it’s pretty romantic too.

Chef Haidar Karoum and restaurateur Mark Kuller (the duo behind Proof and Estadio) always planned to open an Asian restaurant together. After heading east to eat their way through Bangkok and Chiang Mai in 2012, they returned to D.C., where Doi Moi (meaning “new change”) was born. The 5,000-square-foot restaurant overlooks bustling 14th Street and features a large open kitchen paying tribute to the culinary traditions found throughout Southeast Asia—and its Thai dishes are among D.C.’s finest. You’ll agree if you order the khao soi gai, a spicy chicken and crispy noodle coconut curry with pickled mustard greens that takes three hours to make. Ruan Thai Restaurant
Probably due to the fact it sounds like an all-girl group from Calabasas with a noon start time at Coachella, Summer Buffalo doesn’t really get the credit it deserves. But make no doubt about it, this place is great. And with locations in Burbank and on Melrose, it serves two areas largely in need of some quality Thai food. The feel inside is modern, and you could even pull off a casual date here. Must-orders include the salmon curry noodle, isaan sausage, and their pad kee mau. Also, there’s free delivery.

Don’t be afraid to eat sticky rice with your hands. Grab handful and mop up some sauce with it. Somtum Der is a northern-Thai restaurant that leans toward authenticity, so you might as well. And don’t hesitate to get the fried chicken. (It’s Thai, and it’s good.) Papaya salad is another no-brainer at this East Village stand-by, and there are eight different ones to choose from. If you want to impress your date, get the one with fermented fish sauce. If your date doesn’t like it, well, don’t make snap judgments. Just order them a different one and eat the pungent fish sauce yourself.
