Thanks largely to the opening of Sripraphai (more on that below) some 20 years ago, Queens (and particularly the bordering Woodside and Elmhurst neighborhoods) has become the borough most associated with wonderful Thai restaurants, and in the current landscape Ayada takes the cake. The lengthy menu is full of absolute hits from all over the country: succulent frog’s legs, fried golden and draped in holy basil; salty minced pork, hiding rich quarters of black (preserved) eggs; a tantalizing tamarind-infused sour curry, bobbing with shrimp and fluffy cubes of omelette. One visit would be just scratching the surface of what’s on offer; returning many times could yield such a diversity of recipes and flavors that you might feel like you’d visited a different restaurant each time, were it not for the consistency of both the cooking and the atmosphere. The small dining room is polished and elegant without feeling too formal, the service exceptionally attentive and extremely pleasant. A meal at Ayada is an all-around slam dunk. The Lounge Bar

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. Joe's Kitchen King of Thrift


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

Is there a better bowl of Thai soup noodles in Los Angeles than Rodded’s duck noodle soup? Tender slices of boneless, skin-on duck, a clean-yet-rich broth with just the right undertones of spice and firm egg noodles combine to make it a legitimate question. And Rodded isn’t a one-trick pony in the soup noodle department: Their beef noodle soup, with an equally refreshing broth is an in-house competitor that rivals the balance of savory, rich and spice in its gamier competitor.

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.

Catch the waiter’s attention and ask “Can we have the bill, please?” or “Check, please.” to see how much you need to pay. The waiter might ask if you want to pay separately or as a group. Check the bill to see if a service charge or tip has been added. This is money that is given to the waiting staff for good service. If this hasn’t been added, it’s common in most English speaking countries to leave some extra money (usually 10-15% of the bill) for the waiter.
One of the traditional takeout things about chicken stir fries is how they have chicken that looks like it was almost shaved, similar to Mongolian Beef in restaurants. The trick to this is to freeze the chicken for about one hour. Once you do you can very easily slice the chicken very thinly against the grain. Since the slices are so thin you’ll find that even though it was in the freezer, it will come back to a good cooking temperature very quickly. Yum Yum Sab - Thai Restaurant
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.

Hi Paola! I love your recipes. I wanted to add (as someone that uses Miracle Rice a lot), you can microwave the noodles in order to dry them out and to greatly reduce their odor. I drain them in a sieve, then microwave them for 2 minutes. Drain the water released and then microwave for another minute or two. They’re usually pretty dry and have almost no odor. I know some people are against using the microwave and obviously, this method would not be for them. But for others, like myself, it is very fast, easy, and effective. *the length of time might vary on different noodles* Also, I have a 1000W microwave – as an FYI.

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.

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 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. EATING OUT ON A DIET: Thai Restaurant Best & Worst Choices!
Square’s restaurant POS solution offers an in-person and restaurant ordering system all in one. So basically, all the orders come into the same place so that you can manage them concurrently. This can be a positive feature for restaurants that do a good mix of carryout and dine-in business. However, the company charges a transaction fee rather than a larger monthly fee, so it may not be as cost effective for restaurants that make a fair amount in monthly sales.

Family-owned Ruan Thai has been a local favorite since 1998, and for good reason: its intricate symphonies of sweet, sour, salt, and scorch are unparalleled in Maryland. Chef Krisana Suchotinunt’s yum watercress salad is the talk of the town—deep-fried greens comingle with shrimp, squid, onions, and cashews—though a curry of catfish, green beans, and cauliflower is equally intriguing. With only 12 tables and a purported parking issue, Ruan Thai is not easy to get to. But if you do, be sure to order the deep-fried whole flounder with hot chile garlic sauce.

A prawn dish of gung pao nahm phrik mapraow, was a first course with an unexpected kick to it at the end. A green papaya salad with beans, peanuts and tomatoes was a refreshing touch between the spicier courses. To finish, salted palm sugar ice cream may not sound like anything special but this is one of the best desserts in the city, in both Thai and non-Thai restaurants. Fantastic, authentic food, great service and ambience, Som Saa deserves all its accolades and repeat visits from all Thai food lovers.

As one of the most popular and talked about restaurants in London, it’s no surprise that Kiln in Soho won the UK's Best Restaurant title in the 2018 National Restaurant Awards. And the title is well deserved. Founded by Ben Chapman and Brian Hannon in 2016, they’ve got everything just right from the seemingly effortless chic and hip decor to their phenomenal Thai menu. Kiln offers simple, satisfying dishes that combine Burmese, Yunanese and Laos spicing and flavors. Head chef Nick Molyviatis's food is cooked over open flames with a nod to the road style cooking of rural Thailand. Some of the dishes are very spicy but the chefs are able to tone them down on request. The emphasis is on fresh and locally sourced ingredients. Grower Sean O’Neil supplies Thai and Chinese herbs and vegetables while pigs are bred for Kiln by Phillip Warren Farmers. Dayboat seafood is delivered fresh each morning. Crouch end -London
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.

The late culinary bible Gourmet magazine put this off-strip treasure on the map more than a decade ago when it named Lotus of Siam the best Thai restaurant in America. Since then, chef-owner Saipin Chutima, who runs the restaurant with her husband and daughters, became the first Asian-born chef to win a James Beard Award for cooking the cuisine from her roots: Chiang Mai–style family recipes passed down from multiple generations. Diners wait hours for a table, vying for a taste of Chutima’s nam kao tod (a salad of crispy rice, fried peanuts, and sour sausage), nam prik nuhm (roasted green-chile dip), and catfish larb. Riesling pairs brilliantly with spicy food, which here is rated by degrees of hotness, and there’s an extensive list of German white wines to complement the 150-plus dishes—not to mention the steal-of-the-century $9.99 buffet lunch. 171209 BUSABA cover BLACKPINK - STAY + WHISTLE + AS IF IT'S YOUR LAST @ The Outdoor Plaza (Final)
Are you sick of those wide rice noodles yet? (No.) "These are basically pan-fried rice noodles with egg, Chinese broccoli, and your protein of choice," says Tila. The star ingredient is what sets this dish apart from laad na: a sweet soy sauce made with molasses. "It's nice and dark, with a sweet-salty balance." In fact, Tila thinks this dish is a shining example of the inherent complexity of Thai food. "I don't think that Americans have made Thai food too sweet—it's just that the spice and acid are often missing. And anyway, if it's not a little sweet it's not authentically Thai." This dish often hits the bullseye.

A great local beer list and Supatra Johnson, the friendliest Thai chef in Minnesota, make Supatra one of those restaurants you go to twice and immediately consider part of your family. I love all of Supatra’s food—the smoky Thai cashew snack is a must-try, the waterfall beef salad is a gorgeous explosion of herbs and fire, and the Supatra curries are unmatched. 967 W. 7th St., St. Paul, 651-222-5859, supatra.com Pandan Meaning
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. Mango Tree, Thai Restaurant London serving Authentic Thai Cuisine or Thai Food
Shirataki noodles, composed mostly of water and konjac yam (a water-soluble dietary fiber), are a popular ingredient in Japanese cuisine. They also go by other names: konjac noodles (from the plant they originate), miracle noodles (because of the most popular brand) or konnyaku noodles. What has them trending, however, is that they’re effectively zero calories and carbs. Thai Takeaway North London
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.

"Everyone in Thailand eats this once a week," says chef Jet Tila of this spicy basil stir-fry.This dish is made by sautéing chiles and garlic in a hot wok, then adding ground meat along with peppers, onions, fish sauce, and palm sugar—all hit with a big handful of sweet or Thai basil. "The dish has been adapted regionally," explains Tila, so you'll sometimes see it with mint instead of basil. "Order it by saying 'Kra Pow,' and then the protein of your choice," says Tila—"but you have to eat it with a hard-fried runny egg on top, and over jasmine rice."

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.

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. Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant
Tried Panang curry and stir fried Mango Paradise. Definitely get the mango dish, very good. Properly cooked vegetables were crisp and flavoursome, sauce amazing. The Panang curry is more coconut milky spicy curry sauce than anything else, so be prepared to eat a lot of rice with that one. I liked it, just know what you are in for with the curry option.

You’ll find a slew of excellent Thai dishes at this Richardson strip mall spot, but the afternoon Thai tea service is not to be missed. Macarons from Haute Sweets patisserie, chai tea panna cotta, and an assortment of Thai teas (lotus, chrysanthemum, and ginger among others) makes for a delicious and fancy afternoon. Thai tea service is available on Saturdays starting at 2 p.m. and reservations are required. Women Try Crotchless Panties For A Day • Ladylike
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.

“Customers who order through our Toast website receive faster service than those who order through a third-party site because it’s connected directly to our kitchen. It takes 4 or 5 minutes longer per ticket if the order comes in through an external vendor.

It’s so easy and guests really love how it works.” Best Thai Chicken Curries - Gordon Ramsay
The name means "drunken noodle." It's a dish Thai street vendors sell to tipsy party-goers, and it's also Leah Cohen of NYC's Pig and Khao's pick for a satisfying late night meal. Like Laad Naa, this dish is made with wide rice noodles. "They're similar to Chow Fun noodles," explains Cohen: "Spicy, sweet, and salty, with Chinese broccoli, eggs, onion, meat, chiles, garlic, soy, fish sauce… a little oyster sauce." In other words: A little bit of everything. This dish is saucy and sticky and indulgent, which makes it ideal for both sopping up too much booze and for random Tuesday nights after a long day of work.
