Nai Mong Hoi Thod is a Bangkok popular local restaurant that specialises in Hoy Tod, a Thai-style omelette mixed with rice flour and topped with either mussels or oysters. The restaurant has gained a legendary reputation thanks to rave reviews from food bloggers and international media outlets who claim it serves the best Hoy Tod in Bangkok. I’m here to put that claim to the test.
Where is Nai Mong Hoi Thod?
This basic street food restaurant is located on the outskirts of Chinatown, slightly off Yaowarat Road. You can sit inside the small shop or get that authentic Bangkok food experience by eating at one of the street-side tables. A visit to Nai Mong Hoi Thod can be easily combined with a visit to Chinatown at night when this famous neighbourhood transforms into a foodie paradise.

Crispy Mussel Omelette topped with Oyster (150 THB)
Plain Oyster Omelette (100 THB)
I really enjoyed the crispy oyster omelette at Nai Mong Hoi Thod cooked with rice flour, oysters and oyster sauce. The omelette was crispy, yet it remained soft and fluffy on the inside and the fried oysters with thick sauce finished the dish perfectly. Take a chunk of crispy omelette and oysters and dip it into the complimentary mild, sweet chilli sauce, then wash it down with an ice-cold beer.
Prices at Nai Mong Hoi Thod
On our second visit, we were shocked to see that Nai Mong Hoi Thod has dual pricing, which means Thai nationals pay less (70 THB) than foreigners (100 THB). Even though the difference isn’t much and they serve the best oyster omelettes in Bangkok, we don’t feel good recommending Nai Mong Hoi Thod without telling you about this. Can you imagine what would happen if a New York hotdog stand would charge double the price for its non-Caucasian customers?
If you’re against the dual pricing system, and we completely understand why you might be, we recommend visiting one of these other nearby famous restaurants:
- Try Bangkok’s most famous oyster- or fish rice soup at Siang Kia Khao Tom Pla
