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). Steak, sticky rice, and hot chili sauce -- what’s not to love? Gary O'Toole School of Music Studio in London UK for Singing and Drum Lessons
You’ve no doubt passed Siam Sunset a hundred times and just assumed it was a closed down portion of the adjoining America’s Best Value Inn. But it’s very much open and home to the best traditional Thai breakfast in town. Open every day at 6am, this is where you go to eat some porridge and Thai donuts, sip on some instant coffee with angry old men, and feel like you are nowhere near Southern California. Yum Yum

Here is Eater’s guide to Austin’s top Thai restaurant destinations. From household staples like Titaya’s Thai Cuisine and Thai Fresh to casual eateries like Madam Mam’s and Sap’s, the city’s steadfast Thai food trucks like Dee Dee and newcomer Soursop, and a whole bunch of punny names. While some spots stick to traditional Thai cuisines, others add a bit of Texas heat.

A great Thai restaurant and also a sports bar? Count us in. Hoy-Ka has established itself as one of LA’s finest not only because of their excellent food, but also for having a space that’s different from everyone else’s. The wood-covered interior feels kind of like a tavern, and with plenty of TVs playing sports, you won’t have any trouble finding a reason to drink. The pad ka prao, with its fried egg-topped tower of white rice, is your order.

In fact the only thing I’ve had that’s come close were the Australian eateries of legendary chef David Thompson, widely regarded as the world’s foremost non-Thai expert on Thai cuisine, whose Darley Street Thai and Sailor’s Thai in Sydney were both excellent. Now closed, Darley Street Thai was named “Best Thai” in Australia (which has a huge number of quality Thai restaurants) for all eight years of its existence.

You can’t go wrong with Thai noodle soups. They’re flavorful, customizable, and good to the last drop. Although boat noodles -- a pork and beef dish flavored with spices and fresh blood -- are typically the most popular of the noodle soup dishes in Thailand (and worth trying if you’ve yet to have it!), I’d also suggest slurping up a bowl of kuay tiew phet, or duck noodle soup. The broth gets its warm flavor from a blend of cinnamon, star anise, and five spice and delights when the duck has the perfect ratio of meat to fat. I prefer my bowl to contain flat, large rice noodles but the best part about Thai noodle soups is that you can choose your favorite style whether you like vermicelli, egg noodles, or glass noodles.

The ace in the hole of the northern suburbs, Lemongrass is living Thai food, reimagined by the young family running it into contemporary idiom. So, the cooked duck laarb is called Crazy Duck—and it’s crazy good.

P.F. Chang’s Chicken Pad Thai is a recent recipe addition to the menu. I ran a few tests based on a corporate training video that was posted online which gives away the basic recipe and cooking methods, but with all the ketchup it was too inauthentic for my tastes. If you would like me to make a copycat of the recipe I’d be happy to give it a try, but I’m pretty confident if you all love authentic pad thai, you will love this recipe.

But I don’t need convincing because I’ve had Thompson’s cooking several times, and nowhere with as profound results as in London. The thing that makes Nahm a must-eat for me when visiting is not just the quality of the food, it is the singularity of the dinner experience. For almost anyone visiting for the first time, it will be completely unlike anything they have ever tried - anything. While you can order a la carte, the best option, and the one that makes Nahm so special, is the “Traditional Thai Meal,” in which guests receive a house appetizer and then choose one dish each from several categories: starter, soup, salad, relish, curry, and main which is a stir fried, braised or steamed dish. The full slate is served family-style for sharing. Since Nahm is a fine dining restaurant, all of this wondrous food is accompanied by first rate service, presentation and the option for sommelier-chosen wine pairings, a great choice given that relatively few visitors will have the expertise to select appropriate wines for such varied and intense flavors.

This unassuming, cozy restaurant in Mount Baker is a mainstay for low-priced (and cash-only) Thai food. The pad thai has dried shrimp (as it should) and the green papaya salad has real heat (as it should). That salad is a perfect accompaniment to BBQ chicken and a side of sticky rice that comes in a cute bamboo basket. Bonus: Lao dishes on the menu. Thai Curry Competition - Gordon Ramsay

You may have encountered papaya salad, but Ngam's Hong Thaimee encourages you to take it to the next level: "This is a traditional Thai pairing," she explains. "The three are frequently eaten together." The chicken is often skewered, and sticky rice will come with. "At Thai street carts, the spice level is often customized," she explains. "People think Thai food is spicy, but it's a matter of taste." Best Thai Restaurant: Nahm Jim - Gordon Ramsay
Ann Redding and Matt Danzer, the married chefs behind Uncle Boons, seem to have a goal similar to Andy Ricker’s: to transform the way the average American (or at least New York) diner thinks about Thai food, as not just an interesting, exotic “ethnic” option but in fact one of the great cuisines of the world, on par with French or Italian. Their restaurant is as buzzy and stylish as any other in Nolita, and though they hew carefully to tradition when it comes to each dish, they follow their whims in terms of the wide array of them, inspired by their travels all across the country, and place a premium on using the highest quality ingredients. When betel leaves are available, it’d be nothing short of a mistake to skip them, wrapped around a heady mixture of fresh ginger, coconut, dried shrimp, and shrimp paste, plus peanuts and chiles. And you’d be hard-pressed to find a better khao soy, the northern-style, coconut-based, whole-chicken-leg curry, made golden with fresh turmeric and featuring homemade egg noodles.

Thai restaurants in New York are a dime a dozen, reliable workhorses scattered densely across every neighborhood, and most everyone has their go-to takeout spot: the one that delivers generally unobjectionable if unexceptional pad Thai and pineapple fried rice on the quick and cheap. It’s easy to mistake this mediocrity as defining Thailand’s cuisine. And so it can be genuinely life-changing to unlock the next level of the city’s Thai food: the more authentic, hyperregional, or at least bold, adventurous, and thrillingly palate-altering dishes offered by New York’s very best Thai restaurants.
A kid takes over his parents’ family Thai restaurant on the Sunset Strip and turns it into the greatest Thai restaurant Los Angeles has. Tale as old as time, right? Hardly. What the people over at Night + Market (and its equally fantastic Silver Lake location) have been doing for the past few years is nothing short of incredible. The food is both traditional (grandma’s old recipes are still being used) and continuously pushing the envelope. And the atmosphere is one giant, beautiful party.
Those on the north side of Seattle know that this not-visible-from-the-street restaurant is serving up some special Thai food. Recommended: the brilliantly pink noodle soup known as yen ta fo (here called Red Sea Noodle Soup) along with the signature braised pork leg with mustard greens. It's also worth checking for interesting specials, like fish curry served with twirls of rice vermicelli noodles. Yumyum, Stoke Newington - Gordon Ramsay
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.

Don't discount this egg omelet. It's dynamite in its simplicity, according to Tila. The eggs are whipped to a frothy, airy frenzy with fish sauce, sugar, and soy sauce. Unlike a classic French-style omelet, Kai Jeow should be golden-brown. It's eaten with rice, a protein, and sriracha. "People put sriracha on everything and that's bullsh*t," says Tila. "But this is one thing your really should eat it with."

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.
One of the most prominent flavors of Thai food is the inclusion of fish sauce. Though fish sauce can seem like a scary ingredient it is actually similar to eating anchovies in caesar dressing. You can taste a flavor of umami (a savory/salty flavor) but you don’t actually taste a “fishy” taste from it. Many people who make chicken pad thai would never even guess that there was seafood in the dish based on the fish sauce. Mango Tree, Thai Restaurant London serving Authentic Thai Cuisine or Thai Food
I made this recipe sans the lentils portion (we wanted to use up other veggies in the fridge) and thought it was very tasty! I followed the meatball portion of the recipe to a T, but I left the mixture in the fridge for a full 2 days because I didn't have time to cook up the meatballs. My husband said these are the best turkey meatballs he has ever eaten. We weren't blown away by the yogurt sauce...after trying it, we added some sauteed garlic and shallots for some additional flavor. Overall, a solid recipe and I'd recommend giving it a try.

Since it opened in the mid-’90s, Sripraphai has set the standard for New York’s real-deal Thai restaurants, marking the Woodside-Elmhurst area as the definitive Mecca and serving as a difficult-to-pronounce (it’s the owner’s first name) calling card for anyone who wants to show off what an adventurous and authenticity-seeking eater they are. If you expect to be treated as someone who knows the least bit about Thai food, the only answer to “Have you been to Sripraphai?” is a resounding “Yes.” The many-paged menu, with dishes both familiar and unusual from all over the country, can be overwhelming, and so encourages repeat visits, each with its own rewards, from the coconut-milk-free, slow-burn jungle curry to the horizon-expanding crispy watercress salad (for which the green is battered and fried, topped with cashews and dried chiles) to piles of spicy fermented Isan sausage.
The quintessential Thai aroma! A bold, refreshing blend of fragrant lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime leaves, shallots, lime juice and fish sauce shapes this classic soup, giving it its legendary herbal kick. Succulent fresh prawns and straw mushrooms lend it body. A versatile dish that can fit within virtually any meal, the distinctive smell reminds you of exotic perfume, while it's invigorating sour-spicy-hot taste just screams 'Thailand'!

London has had decent Thai restaurants for decades, with menus dominated by Thailand's national dish, Phad Thai and green or red curry. These dishes are great but recently there's been an explosion of Thai street food and more unusual options available across the city, in posh restaurants, cafes and hipster joints. With Bangkok frequently topping lists of the best street food cities in the world, Londoners are fortunate to have such an excellent range of places to enjoy one of the world's favorite cuisines. Here are five of the best.

Greyhound Cafe in Fitzrovia has a loud, young clientele but the Bangkok street food more than makes up for the slightly hectic atmosphere. And there is a large outdoor patio to escape to when the London weather permits. Popular Phad Thai is on offer here too but with an interesting twist of seared scallops instead of prawns or chicken. A wok prepared rice dish with crab meat is pleasingly flavoured with garlic and chilli. Greyhound Cafe brings Bangkok to London with traditional recipes handed down from generations past, to riotous dishes from street markets, to improvised contemporary plates.

Thailand’s food needs little introduction. From San Francisco to Sukhothai, its profusion of exotic flavours and fragrances make it among the most coveted of international cuisines. As a walk through Bangkok forcefully reminds, these flavours and fragrances are seemingly inexhaustible. However, whether it be juicy pieces of grilled pork on a stick or a fiery bowl of ‘Tom Yum’ soup, we all have to start somewhere.

Named for the northern Thai staple of every meal, Sticky Rice makes few concessions to Western palates—traditional tamarind-laden stewed pork curry is a standout, while herbaceous house-made sausages, banana blossom salad, and larb made authentically with ground pork and intestine anchor the huge menu. Adventurous diners seeking a true taste of Thai street food will appreciate the insect dishes, from fried worms to ant omelettes, though tamer items like coconut curry khao soi will satisfy the bug-averse.

Rodded is an all-around solid Thai restaurant, but if you aren’t here eating the duck noodle soup, you’re doing your life a disservice. This bowl of glory might not have the finest curb appeal of all time, but something about it hits every correct note possible. Rich, savory, and not in the least bit oily, this is one of the best single dishes in Thai Town. We also highly recommend getting the wontons for dipping. You also get to choose your own noodle to put into it, if freedom is something you get excited about. Mango Tree, Thai Restaurant London serving Authentic Thai Cuisine or Thai Food
This is the worst Thai food you will ever eat. Of course it's the best you can find in Cle Elum, because it's the only you can find in Cle Elum. Th Pham Thai is like ketchup, noodles, and our choice of meat. Pad Se Ew is sauce, noodles, and a couple florets of broccoli. Their food is the most unoriginal, basic Thai food you could possibly make. Trust me when I say the food served in a Thai prison is lightyears beyond theirs.
I have something to confess: I’m not a fan of ripe mangoes, and therefore usually avoid the quintessential Thai dessert, mangoes with sweet sticky rice, but I love ruam mit. Ruam means “gathering” and mit roughly translates to “friends,” and it is a dish that is good to share. Ruam mit is essentially a delicious dessert gazpacho. It’s comprised of a sweet coconut milk broth that that has sliced jackfruit, toddy palm seeds, pandan and coconut jelly, and crunchy water chestnuts coated in tapioca flour all served over ice. It’s the perfect way to cap off a spicy meal.

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.

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.

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.

We have the kids for a few more days this week before they go back to their family, and I honestly thought I wouldn’t see the inside of a kitchen for the rest of the time that they were with us, but somehow, during these last few days, I’ve army-crawled my way back into the kitchen to fight something delicious into existence which feels like a major personal and professional win. I even found it in me to eat this Rainbow Vegetarian Pad Thai for dinner the other night while feeding the kids some leftover pizza and apples. YES I KNOW.

Not coincidentally, Nahm in London is Thompson’s flagship eatery (he recently opened a second location of Nahm in Bangkok. I’ve only been to the one in London). Many Americans are unfamiliar with Thompson since he has no restaurants or TV shows here, but he has probably done more than anyone to spread authentic Thai cooking outside of Thailand, and in addition to winning all sorts of awards and accolades, he wrote the definitive English language Thai cookbook, Thai Food, plus another on street foods of Thailand. When he expanded Nahm to Thailand - a country where he learned to cook, has lived many years of his life, and still spends several months annually in - there was some apprehension over a “foreigner” trying to cook Thai, despite the fact that he had previously helped run a professional academy for chefs there. To doubt Thompson’s abilities based on the fact that he is not Thai is like arguing that Mario Batali can’t cook Italian or Thomas Keller can’t cook French because they are American. Gordon tries to make Pad Thai - Gordon Ramsay
Having a drink is a great way to pass the time while you are deciding what to order. The waiter might ask “Would you like to start with a drink?” and you can reply “Yes, we’d like (type of drink) while we decide on our food.” If you order a bottle of wine, the waiter might ask “Would you like to taste the wine?” when he opens the bottle for you. If you like it, you can reply “Yes, that’s fine.”

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.

This spice-forward curry from Southern Thailand is one of the country's most famous dishes, and a great break from the green curry routine. "It's a Southern-style curry," explains Alex McCoy of D.C.'s Alfie's restaurant." Its influenced by Arabic cooking in that the spices—green and black cardamom, nutmeg, cinnamon, and nutmeg—are deeply toasted in the pan before being cooked down with garlic and shallots. "It has a wonderful roasted flavor," he says, adding that it has raisiny-tart notes thanks to tamarind, palm sugar, and fish sauce. A flourish of chopped peanuts adds crunch. Still on the fence? Take it from McCoy: "If you like beef stew, you'd love Massaman curry."

LA has a number of vegan Thai restaurants, and for the most part, they’re terrible. Save for Araya’s Place. The Beverly Grove strip mall joint started in Seattle, and has been around for almost 30 years. And while we’ll always prefer our curry with meat, we’d be lying if we said we didn’t think about their avocado curry more than we probably should. The green curry itself is outstanding, but the avocado mixes so well with it, you wonder why more people don’t serve it. If you’re a vegan, you can’t get much better than this place. And if you’re not, the statement still stands.

This little International District shop keeps things simple indeed, opening only on weekdays and serving almost exclusively curry. Oh, there are noodles and a couple of other dishes, but diners should take inspiration from the name of the restaurant and go with one of the curries on offer. The only choice left to be made then is whether to add homemade hot sauce for more heat.
Fried rice, egg, onion, a few herbs - nothing more, nothing less. A popular lunch dish served typically with a wedge of lime and slices of cucumber, the secret of this unpretentious dish lies in its simplicity.

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.
Thai Patio does not have the best food on this list. However, it has something that almost nobody else does - an atmosphere that’s essentially the afterparty from the one you just came from. Roll into Thai Patio at 3am on a Saturday night, and you’ll be greeted with 100 other late-night revelers. The order at Thai Patio is always noodles - their drunken noodles (coincidence?) are among our favorite in town. Then sit back, soak up that tequila, and listen to the teenage girl on stage singing an acoustic version of “Man, I Feel Like A Woman”.

Thai cuisine contains a spectrum of flavors and textures so vast that no two dishes are ever the same. Even tried-and-true dishes -- like everyone’s favorite, pad thai -- is open to interpretation and varies in preparation across the different provinces in Thailand. Thailand’s four regions -- Northern, Central, Southern, and Isaan or Northeastern -- each possess unique cultures, dialects, and treasured cuisines. The specialities within each region rely on the varying resources found within their respective environments: seafood and fresh coconuts in the South, mountain veggies and herbs in the North, intense chilis and sticky rice in the Northeast, and a hodgepodge of all those ingredients at the center.

Nahm was the first Thai eatery ever awarded a Michelin Star, a prestigious honor which it held for nearly a decade before losing last year. I’m not sure why, since I ate at Nahm again two months ago and it was as good and well run as ever, but Michelin can be quite fickle. Not that it matters - you should not go to Nahm for this increasingly unimportant distinction, but rather because it is both excellent and truly unique.
