From Cape Town to Khao San Road, the default international Thai dish! Dropped in a searing hot wok, fistfuls of small, thin or wide noodles (you choose) do a steamy minute-long dance alongside crunchy beansprouts, onion and egg, before disembarking for the nearest plate. A truly interactive eating experience, half its fun (and flavour) lies in then using a quartet of accompanying condiments - fish sauce, sugar, chilli powder and finely ground peanuts - to wake it from its slumbers.

This is a favorite in my family, and for good reason. It’s a fried rice dish that’s been tossed together with kapit -- fermented ground shrimp and salt -- until the aromatic shrimp paste coats the entirety of the rice. Unlike typical fried rice dishes that are studded with meats and veggies sauteed all together, khao kluk kapit’s accompaniments are served as a myriad of toppings: sour, unripe mango, sweet Chinese sausage (the best addition in any fried rice), shallots, chilis, thinly sliced omelette, dried shrimp, and marinated pork. This makes for a dish that is equally colorful as it is delicious, and no two bites are the same.

When noodles are soft enough (but still slightly harder than al dente pasta), rinse them in cold water and drain. Make sure all of your ingredients are set up and divided into equal portions. Note: You’re cooking one portion at a time. Add 2 tbsp. oil to a wok or large non-stick pan. Heat on medium-high, until very hot. Add chicken (if using) and cook for 1 min, then add tofu and garlic. Cook for about 45 secs, stirring frequently. Garlic should now be brown. Stir in noodles, then add 3 tbsp. of sauce mixture. Coat noodles and meat well and stir vigorously to keep noodles from sticking. After about 2 mins, taste noodles to check if they’re soft enough. If not, add 2-3 tbsp. of water and continue to cook for a little longer. The MOST INSANE Street Food in Thailand!
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.

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. Cambodian Food Tour in Siem Reap!
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'!

There are a lot of rules at this Dupont Circle hot spot: no reservations (first-come, first-served); no groups larger than four (there are only 28 seats in the whole joint); no photos; and no substitutions allowed. But if you’re willing to queue up—lines form as early as 4 p.m.—and play along, you’ll be privy to a special family-style dinner ($45 per person) of northern and northeastern Thai dishes. Menus change weekly, but you can count on tangy regional specialties served alongside handwoven baskets bursting with sticky rice, fresh herbs, and veggies. Chef-owner Johnny Monis sources holy basil, pea eggplants, and khi nu chiles from local farmers and makes bla ra (a distinctly dank unfiltered fish sauce) from scratch using local snakehead from the neighboring Potomac River watershed. For the shortest wait, show up at 9 p.m. on a weekday. Asmara at thai restaurant

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. Best Thai Restaurant: Nahm Jim - Gordon Ramsay
The food at Up Thai isn’t the on the level of the stuff you want to travel for, but on the Upper East Side, it gets no better. Delivery is tempting, but many of the best things won’t travel well (and the dining room isn’t a bad place to spend some time). So DVR that episode of The Bachelorette and get yourself a table. Order the chicken larb, the whole red snapper, and the crispy duck with tamarind sauce. If you’re really into seafood, get a Thai bouillabaisse, which is a thing here.

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 received rave reviews for their east-end pop up two years ago, Chef Andy Oliver and business partner Tom George found a permanent location for Som Saa just down the road from Spitalfields Market. Som Saa, in an airy, former warehouse with exposed brick, has a buzzy atmosphere and hurrah, despite being on the edge of hipster Hoxton, the music is very cool but not too loud. We opted for the tasting menu which proved to be an excellent choice with mu hong, a southern style soy braised pork belly, as one of the highlights.
From Sysco, CAKE is a full-service POS and management system that includes online ordering. The cloud based system allows you to accept orders online and manage them alongside in-person orders on the same platform. It includes a transaction fee, so it can be a good option for small restaurants just getting started. But the costs will grow the more money you make.

**Fish sauce is available in the Asian food section of most grocery stores or you can purchase it online. They also make a VEGAN version as well as a gluten free version. I HIGHLY recommend using any one of these, as it adds important saltiness and irreplaceable Thai flavor to the dish. If you must make a substitution, use additional low-sodium soy sauce.
Pa Ord has two locations, both within very close proximity of each other on Sunset Blvd. And to make matters more confusing, their menus are different. So we’ll make it easy on you - go to the #2 location at Sunset and La Brea. The menu is much bigger here, which means you can find their legendary Tom Yum soup, their boat noodles, and all the curries you could want. It’s also the only location with an online menu for take-out orders.

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.

Don’t be thrown off by the psychedelic setting or the Cindy Crawford poster, which is reminiscent of roadside shacks in the Thai countryside. The indigenous Thai street food Kris Yenbamroong is cooking up at both the new Silver Lake outpost and the original West Hollywood NIGHT + MARKET is everything we’ve come to love about north and northeastern Thai food—pungent, bold flavors and gobs of heat smacking you in the face. The best approach: bring friends and share lots of small plates. Start with luu suk, a “dipping soup” of pork blood and MSG topped with fresh herbs and pork cracklings, and spicy catfish larb before digging into the pork toro (75 percent of which is fat) and curries, alongside generous helpings of sticky rice. To tame the fire, order a bottle of pét-nat, a natural sparkling wine. Close your eyes and taste—you could easily be in Chiang Rai.

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.

Kai jeow is the unsung hero of Thailand. Every Thai kid has grown up on this wok fried omelette, which can be stuffed with a variety of ingredients. The two fillings I love most are the moo sab -- garlicky, peppery ground pork -- or nam -- a sour, fermented Thai sausage. The trick to getting a perfect kai jeow is cook over very high heat, resulting in a crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside egg dish. You’ll never be able to go back to regular omelettes after this.

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.

The exotic goodness of Thai food comes to Dallas with our easy online ordering. Taste the savory blend of Thai herbs and spices as they combine with meats, seafood and vegetables to produce the taste sensations our recipes are known for.

All of this and more awaits you when you place your order online with us for delivery or carry out.
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. Pandan Leaf

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.

When discussing the merits of Elmhurst’s Thai restaurants, it’s important to note that the owners come from various regions, with different cuisines, and their restaurants specialize in distinct dishes. So a dish-by-dish comparison isn’t the proper way to judge them — just as it wouldn’t be fair to compare, say, Cantonese and Sichuanese restaurants on the basis of their mapo tofus. Ayada, seven years into its tenure and not missing a beat, stands out because it does so much so well. Here you’ll still find the magic of a relaxed, unassuming place turning out some of the city’s most thrilling Thai food. Owner Duangjai “Kitty” Thammasat, who hails from Pichit in central Thailand, just expanded the restaurant into the space next door, doubling its capacity after eight years. The dining room still hums with a consistent, loyal crowd of local Thai neighbors, Queens residents out on the town, and fans and first-timers from farther afield. They’re all here, foremost, for the curries, which are as supercharged and varied as ever. There’s nutty, thick, lusty panang curry with crispy roast duck; a searingly hot pad kra prow with thick slices of chicken and minty, herbaceous Thai basil; a thicker phat phrik khing with crunchy string beans that is coconut-milk-free but more sweet than spicy; puckering sour curry; and thin, blistering jungle curry. Of course, to focus exclusively on the curries would be to ignore Ayada’s range. There’s the funky e-sarn sausage, the crispy duck salad, the slightly sweet stewed beef-tendon soup — the list goes on. And because the menu here is typically encyclopedic but atypically strong across the board, Ayada is a restaurant that will never, ever bore you.
Kana moo krob is the perfect way to get your greens in while still entertaining your tastebuds. The dish is composed of Chinese broccoli stir fried over high heat with garlic, chili, and crispy pork belly, which is then tossed in a soybean and oyster sauce gravy that is a winning combination of sweet and salty. Eat this with a plate of steamed jasmine rice and you’re in business. Yum Yum
Stopped here with friends after a Sunday hike. The first thing I noticed was the prices which seem a little on the high side for Cle Elum. No matter. We sit and order Tom Yum soup as a starter. Server warns us about the spice levels. We order our entrees. Food took a while to come out, and Tom Yum did not come as a starter, but instead with the entrees. Service was pleasant but erratic; we had to ask for place settings, and several times for more water. The Tom Yum was actually good, but a little too spicy. Unfortunately, our entrees were SO spicy that the flavor was completely overpowered! And the food was very greasy and slightly odd - too many onions in my 3* fried rice; strangely long carrot strips on my friend's 4* pad thai. I only ate about half of my fried rice; my friend ate one bite of her pad thai. My other friend finished his 2* mango chicken only out of sheer hiker hunger. We paid, left, and went across the street to Dairy Queen for chicken strips and a burger. As much as I wanted to like this place (and for there to be options in Cle Elum), we will not be back and I will not be recommending it to others. I don't think ordering zero stars would help. Oh - and we were discussing openly (not rudely, just matter of fact) how the food was unpleasantly spicy and the owner came out and glared at us, not cool.

Made with morsels of meat, red curry paste, smooth coconut milk and topped off with a sprinkling of finely sliced kaffir lime leaves, this rich, aromatic curry always gets those taste buds tingling. At its best when the meat is stunningly tender, it could be likened to a beautiful woman: it's mild, sweet and delicately fragrant. And like all true love affairs, absence makes the heart grow fonder. BgA - Dong Saya Dae (똥싸야돼) [Official Music Video]
Lovely Day isn’t the most authentic Thai, but at least they aren’t pretending to be. Sure, there’s a seared tuna sushi roll on the menu, but this is always a charming spot for a casual meal with friends. Also, the vibes are good, and it’s probably the cheapest dinner you can have in the Nolita area that still feels like a “fun night out.” Get the green curry, the hobo noodles, and the ginger fried chicken. If you want something more intimate, there’s also a bar downstairs that serves the food. The host probably won’t tell you about it when you ask for a table, but now you’re in the know. yum yum stoke newington

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.

I found this website looking for a pad thai recipe using konjac noodles. I made this recipe and it’s actually better than most pad thai I’ve eaten at thai restaurants.

A mild, tamer twist on Tom Yum, this iconic soup infuses fiery chilies, thinly sliced young galangal, crushed shallots, stalks of lemongrass and tender strips of chicken. However unlike its more watery cousin, lashings of coconut milk soften its spicy blow. Topped off with fresh lime leaves, it's a sweet-smelling concoction, both creamy and compelling.

"The first time I had larb in Thailand was insane," says Cohen, explaining why she loves this simple dish so much. It's comprised of ground meat (duck is Cohen's favorite, but you'll also frequently see pork, chicken, or beef) that's been cooked in water and mashed up with a spoon and lime juice, shallot, cilantro, fish sauce, and tons of chiles. It's seriously spicy and aggressively seasoned—which is why it comes with a side of raw veggies, like cabbage, carrots, and lettuce. "The raw veg cuts through the heat level and acts as a palate cleanser." Unlike sautéed ground meat, larb doesn't become caramelized, but what it lacks in crispy bits, it more than makes up for in flavor. Yum Yum Thai Restaurant
When noodles are soft enough (but still slightly harder than al dente pasta), rinse them in cold water and drain. Make sure all of your ingredients are set up and divided into equal portions. Note: You’re cooking one portion at a time. Add 2 tbsp. oil to a wok or large non-stick pan. Heat on medium-high, until very hot. Add chicken (if using) and cook for 1 min, then add tofu and garlic. Cook for about 45 secs, stirring frequently. Garlic should now be brown. Stir in noodles, then add 3 tbsp. of sauce mixture. Coat noodles and meat well and stir vigorously to keep noodles from sticking. After about 2 mins, taste noodles to check if they’re soft enough. If not, add 2-3 tbsp. of water and continue to cook for a little longer. OFFICIAL: 'Manwa Laage' FULL VIDEO Song | Happy New Year | Shah Rukh Khan | Arijit Singh

Thai restaurants are ubiquitous in Seattle, which is good, but dishes like pad thai, green curry, and green papaya salad are often dumbed down to American tastes, which is bad. That's where this handy guide to Seattle's terrific Thai food comes in. Diners can try meats like boar collar at an Isan-style spot or sip boat noodle soup with pork blood broth. And if they're not feeling carnivorous? They can find vegetarian and even gluten-free pad thai, or visit an entirely vegan restaurant serving an amazing avocado curry.

Lum Ka Naad in Northridge might be a bit of a hike, but it’s worth it. The modern restaurant has a big menu, but you’re narrowing it down to two sections: “Northern Cuisine” and “Southern Cuisine.” These are the dishes specifically from the owner’s home regions, and they are incredible. Start with the turmeric shrimp soup from the South and work your way up to the kang ho in the North (essentially drunken noodles with vegetables in a curry rub). Delicious food and a geography lesson. Everyone wins. Vietnam War: Battle of Con Thien - Documentary Film
It is brown rice noodles (because we’re currently doing the sugar free experiment again and loosely avoiding refined grains) and spiralized veggies (because veggies in noodle form feels like more noodles) and a super tangy-delicious Pad Thai sauce that you just shake up in a jar in about five seconds flat, and peanuts that almost instantly start to soak up the sauce, and a gently scrambled egg that kind of cream-ifies the whole thing.

So is Nahm the best Thai restaurant in the world? I have no way of knowing for sure. Is it the best Thai restaurant I have ever eaten at? Absolutely. And while there are lots of great restaurants in London, most have direct equivalents in New York and other major cities, while Nahm is so unique compared to anything here in the States that I consider it a must anytime I head across the pond.
