The best curries in Bangkok are:

 

1. Stir-Fried Soft-Shell Crab in Curry Powder at Soei Restaurant (400 THB)


Did someone say fried soft-shell crab in curry powder? *Dribble. This is another one of my favourite curries in Bangkok. The crispy, fried soft-shell crabs are covered in a thick layer of curry powder and veggies. These meaty treats are slathered in fiery curry powder, making them a highlight at Soei. Soei Restaurant can be seen as one of the top local Thai restaurants in the city. Other delicious food at Soei Restaurant: Shrimp in Wasabi-Fish Sauce (200 THB) and Grill Prawn Salad with Lemon Grass and Mint (500 THB). For more in-depth information about this restaurant, check out our review of Soei Restaurant.

2. Green Curry with Beef or Chicken at Sanguansri Restaurant (60 – 100 THB)


After famous food blogger Mark Wiens declared this curry the best green curry in Bangkok, the curry gained somehow of a legendary reputation. The rich dish is sweetened with coconut milk and flavoured with other herbs, including green chillies, to give it a spicy kick. On Thursdays, Sanguansri serves a special green curry which is prepared with beef (100 THB).

3. Red Curry with Smoked Duck at Soul Food Mahanakorn (250 THB)


This combination of traditional red curry and smoky roasted duck makes my mouth water. The slightly spicy curry is unusually flavoured with sweet rambutans.

Of course, the red curry with smoked duck is my favourite. Other delicious food at Soul Food Mahanakorn: Sticky Tamarind Ribs (280 THB) and Gaeng Hang Lay (250 THB). More information, such as the location, opening times, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Soul Food Mahanakorn

4. Mussaman Curry with Chicken and Chantaburi Durian at Mother May I (220 THB)


This is my favourite massaman curry in Bangkok! The creamy curry is packed with aromatic flavours and tender chicken. But the best thing about this curry is that it's served with durian. For those of you who don't know what durian is: durian a hugely popular fruit in Asia, that's famous for its taste and smell. It's a combination of sweetness and garlickiness, which not every foreigner appreciates. But together with this curry, you get an extra subtle, unique flavour that I've personally never experienced before. Mother May I is also listed in our article about the best restaurants near Octave Rooftop BarOther delicious food at Mother May I: “Kai Jom Yud” by Chef Peter Lai (120 THB). More information, such as the location, opening times, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Mother May I

This local curry and rice restaurant is known for serving exceptional food at a decent price. My favourite curry at Ran Nai Oo is their flavour-packed Penang pork curry, which comes with just the right amount of chillies and has a rich coconut cream flavour.

This rare pork stew curry is the signature dish at Supanniga Eating Room. It’s flavoured with cha muang leaves, which give this stand-out curry a sour taste. The chunks of tender stewed pork complete this dish and make it one of the highlights of Supanniga’s already remarkable menu. Other delicious food at Supanniga Eating Room: Ka Lum Tod Nam Pla (120 THB) and Gaeng Crab Meat Bai Cha Plu (650 THB). More information, such as the location, opening times, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Supanniga Eating Room
