The best Thai restaurants in Bangkok are:

 

1. Soei Restaurant


The location of this legendary Bangkok eatery may have changed, but the flavours certainly haven’t. Every dish is approved by chef and owner P’Soei, who’s known for his full-on spicy specialities. If you’re looking for an unusual Thai dish, phone ahead to reserve the Fried Mackerel Cheeks. Picture a plate of crispy, deep-fried fish heads slathered in garlic and salt, which you can dip into fiery chilli sauce. The menu also boasts traditional curries and other seafood delights, such as Spicy Grilled Shrimp Salad and Thai Ceviche Prawns in a unique mix of fish sauce and wasabi.

Soei Restaurant can be seen as one of the best Thai restaurants in Bangkok and we even dedicated a full article about this gem.

4. Somsak Pu Ob


Somsak Pu Ob serves the best steamed crabs and prawns with glass noodles in Bangkok and deserves a high listing in this article. This unassuming street stall has several rows of tables and is extremely popular, so come early to avoid the queues. Watch as seafood is pulled from buckets and cooked before your eyes, served up with a heap of glass noodles drenched in a secret soy-garlic sauce and garnished with spring onions. Our favourite dish is the Roasted Shrimp, but there’s also a tasty Roe Crab on the menu. For snacking, order a pile of Boiled Cockles or Mussels to dip into the complimentary seafood sauce.  They have a total of four different locations, from street food restaurants to air coned eateries. 

For more in-depth information, check out our article about Somsak Pu Ob. More general information about this Thai restaurant in Bangkok, such as opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Somsak Pu Ob.

7. Herehai Restaurant


Many restaurants in this article follow the same philosophy about the food they serve: take typical Thai dishes to the next level by using top quality ingredients and perfecting the recipe over the years. It’s simpler said than done, but if you hit the right spot, success is guaranteed. Herehai is on a mission to serve the best crab fried rice in Thailand and we believe they might have achieved it. Their signature Insane Crab Fried Rice (340 THB) is an amazingly flavoured fried rice with a crazy amount of peeled crab. This plate of deliciousness is easily shareable with two-person, however, for larger groups, there is an XL-size as well, which costs 990 THB and can be shared with at least five people. But we were even more impressed by the Stir-Fried Mantis Shrimp with Garlic & Pepper (360 THB). The stir-fried prawns are cooked to perfection and covered in a slightly sweetened crispy garlic crumble. To spice it up, every dish is served with a spicy seafood dipping sauce. If you’re looking for next-level Thai seafood dishes, make sure to visit Herehai in Ekkemai.

More information about this Thai restaurant, such as the location, opening times, ratings and other TopTravelFoods users’ opinions, can be on the
TopTravelFoods review page of Herehai.

8. Kor Panich


Do you have a sweet tooth? Then head to Kor Panich for Thailand’s most iconic dessert: Mango Sticky Rice. Order a plate of ripe sweet mango with sticky rice drizzled in coconut milk with a crunchy sprinkling of mung beans. Kor Panich has been running for over 80 years and is reportedly popular with Thai royalty: apparently, the family recipe was handed down by a relative who worked in the palace kitchen. If you want to try something different, you can also order the sticky rice with either Thai Custard or even Dried Fish. Kor Panich is also listed in our article as the best mango sticky rice in Bangkok

9. Ruepoh Seafood


Ruepoh is a seafood restaurant located in Udom Suk and the first branch of this family-run business was opened forty years ago. Ruepoh Seafood in Udom Suk opened its door in 2017. The restaurant is built inside a shipping container which gives it quite a cool ambience. The menu is limited, however, the seafood that is served is simply incredible. Absolute highlights are the Stir-Fried Mix Seafood with Pepper, Coriander and Exotic Herbs (250 THB), Fluffy Catfish with Green Mango Salad (150 THB) and Grilled River Prawn (999 THB). Expect plenty of spices and chillies with perfectly cooked seafood. All these reasonably priced seafood dishes are delivered freshly and daily from Chonburi. The combination of authentically spiced, highly flavoured, impressive fresh seafood that is reasonably priced makes Ruepoh Seafood one of our favourite local Thai seafood restaurants in Bangkok.

Sanguan Sri is another of Bangkok’s Michelin-endorsed delights, established in the 70s and set by Lumpini Park. Many claim this is the best Thai restaurant in Bangkok for Thai Green Curry which you can order with chicken, or on Thursdays, beef. Enjoy the tender meat cubes swimming in green curry sauce with hints of kaffir lime, basil and cumin. Other draws include the Blanched Pork with Peanut Sauce and Morning Glory and the Crunchy Fried Fish with Chili Paste.

12. Natthaphon Coconut Ice Cream

 

Natthaphon serves the best coconut ice cream in town, which is more like sorbet in texture than ice cream.

To complete the dessert, choose from toppings such as roasted peanuts or sticky rice. You can also try the other flavours such as Thai Tea, Green Tea or Mango.

For noodle fans, Rung Rueng serves up some of the best Chinese-inspired noodles in Bangkok. It’s actually two restaurants that sit side-by-side on Sukhumvit Soi 26, run by feuding brothers who use the same family recipe. Our top dish is the Tom Yum flavoured dry Egg Noodles with Pork, but the clear soup flavoured with Minced Pork and topped with Fish Balls or Pork is incredibly popular. Choose your favourite noodles to add to the soup and order some deep-fried fish skin as a crispy accompaniment. For more information, check out our extensive review of Rung Reung Pork Noodle or check our article about the 24 best noodles and noodle soups in BangkokMore information about this restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and ratings can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Rung Rueng Noodles.

25. Pa Tong Savoey

 

We’ve decided to add this “Thai restaurant”, which is in fact just a street food vendor, to take a jump to one of Bangkok’s ultimate food experiences: street food. Street food is part of life in Thailand and nowhere else than in Bangkok you will find this much street food, both in quantity and in quality. One of these high-quality street food options is Pa Tong Go Savoey, located on Yaowarat Road, or Chinatown. Pa Tong Go are Chinese doughnuts, but what makes these doughnuts so special as Pa Tong Go Savoey is that they are slightly grilled right after being deep-fried, giving them a much heartier flavour. The favourite topping is the combination of Pandan and Consensed Milk. A box of this deliciousness only costs you 40 THB. If you are looking for many more of these tasty bites in this area, check out our article about the best food in Chinatown Bangkok. We strongly recommend reading our in-depth article about Bangkok Street Food (long read) if you are planning to go on a street food exploration in Thailand’s capital. More information about this Thai street food vendor, such as the location, opening times, ratings and other TopTravelFoods users’ opinions, can be on the TopTravelFoods review page of Pa Tong Savoey.

26. Best Beef Sukhumvit

 

 

Perhaps the most fun recommended restaurant on this list is Best Beef Sukhumvit. Why? Because it’s an all-you-can-eat Thai barbecue where you grill your own meats, together with your friends. This hugely popular restaurant is located near On Nut BTS and every day, this place is completely packed. Although Thai barbecue is usually cooked “Mookata” style, Best Beef is different because you can fry your meat, seafood and veggies in a pan, or lay them on the grill. For 50 THB extra, you can also get a hot pot with a tasty soup. The meat is good enough, about what you’d expect from a 269 THB all-you-can-eat barbecue. However, you don’t go to a Thai barbecue for the premium ingredients, you go for the fun experience and to socialize with friends. Stuff yourself for only 269 THB or drink as much as you can as well for only 439 THB. We highly recommend this restaurant not only because of the food but also because of the experience. More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Best Beef Sukhumvit.

27. Daradalay

 

Although Khao Soi is a typical Northern Thai dish, that does not mean you can’t find this heavenly bowl of curry in Bangkok. In fact, we did some research and made an article about the best Khao Soi in Bangkok. You can already guess who got listed as number one. That’s right, Daradalay serves the tastiest Khao Soi in Bangkok and for that reason, we listed Daradaly also in our article about the best Thai restaurants in Bangkok. In order to get a taste of this amazing curry, you do have to travel a bit as Daradaly is not located anywhere near the tourist trail. Daradalay offers different varieties of Khao Soi including pork, chicken and a vegetarian mushroom version cooked with organic, homegrown produce. Our favourite is the classic version with chicken, which only cost you 50 THB per bowl.

28. Bamee Kon Sae Lee

 

This local eatery is in business for over fifty years and does a few things so well, that it can measure itself with Bangkok’s best noodle vendors. Their homemade wontons are seriously delicious as well as their two specialities: Roasted Duck (150 THB) and Crispy Roasted Pork (150 THB). But instead of ordering these specialities as individual dishes, it’s much more excited to combine all these ingredients with a bowl of noodles: Egg Noodles with Prawns & Pork Wonton and Roasted Red Pork (50 THB). There are several noodle options to choose from, though, so there is a combination for everyone’s taste. If you’re really hungry or when you’re with the group, we recommend you order the roasted duck or crispy roasted pork as an individual dish as well, which you can share together as these portions are large. More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Bamee Kon Sae Lee.

29. Khua Kling Pak Sod

 

For those seeking Thai food with plenty of spice, Khua Kling Pak Sod is an excellent option. This family-run restaurant has several branches in Bangkok and serves typical Southern Thai dishes. For those who don’t know, the Southern Thai cuisine is the spiciest in the nation and Khua Kling Pak Sod serves authentic food from a secret family recipe. The restaurants are beautifully decorated and styled in a colonial way. This makes it an excellent option for having a nice dinner as a couple or with family and friends. Dishes cost you around 250 to 300 THB with a few exceptions there. Highlights of the menu are the Khua Kling (180 THB), Kai Pa Loh Kha Moo (280 THB) and Nua Pu Pad Prik Kee Noo Sua (480 THB). It’s good to know that there are a good variety of dishes that are not spicy at all. More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Khua Kling Pak Sod.

30. Ginger Farm Kitchen

 

After a successful story in Chiang Mai, Ginger Farm Kitchen decided to expand its business in Bangkok as well. Their concept is straightforward: serve authentic, clean Northern Thai food made from homegrown ingredients. This concept seems to work in Bangkok as well as nowadays, Ginger Farm Kitchen has several branches in Bangkok that are well-visited. Similar to the previous recommended Khua Kling Pak Sod, Ginger Farm Kitchen’s restaurants are well-decorated and service is prompt. It’s a nice place to dine without breaking the bank. Highlights are the Grilled Marinated Beef Tenderloin (225 THB), Khao Soi Northern Style Noodle Curry (165 THB) and the Northern Style Poung Jackfruit Salad with Crispy Pork Belly (225 THB). But honestly, all their creations are tasty, making it one of my personal favourite restaurants to go to once in a while with family and friends. More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Ginger Farm Kitchen.

31. Som Tum Der

 

One of Thailand’s most eaten dishes is Som Tum - or Papaya Salad. You can find this dish at every Thai restaurant, but some restaurants bring this classic dish to the next level. In our article about the best Som Tum in Bangkok, we recommend some of the nicest places to enjoy this salad, and obviously, Som Tum Der is listed there too. Som Tum Der is an institution when it comes to Isaan food and aside from its tasty food, the restaurants always look fabulous. With fifteen different types of Som Tam, this restaurant is a true expert when it comes to this famous Thai salad. The prices vary between 60 THB to 105 THB per dish and the ingredients range from crab and stinky beans to mussels and deep-fried catfish. We highly recommend you to order Spicy Papaya Salad with Deep-Fried Catfish (95 THB) accompanied by either the Grilled Coconut Milk Marinated Pork Skewers (110 THB) or the House Special Grilled Marinated Pork (95 THB). More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Som Tum Der.

32. Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo


Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo is a well-known local street food restaurant that specializes in this spicy pink soup called yen-ta-fo, which gets its distinctive pink colour due to the use of fermented soybean paste. This place is always busy as it serves the best yen-ta-fo soup in the city. Keep in mind that this street food restaurant makes their soups authentically spicy, so ask for less spice if you’re new to Thai food. Tee’s Yen-Ta-Fo has two locations, a street food stall on Maha Chai Road (close to famous restaurants Pad Thai Thip Samai and Jay Fai) and a recently-opened restaurant on Siri Phong Road. We also recommend you try their Hot and Sour Noodle Soup (60 THB) and the Red Tofu Chilli Noodle Soup with Fried Pork (60 THB). More information about this local Thai restaurant, including opening times, location, menu and other TopTravelFoods users' opinions can be found on the TopTravelFoods review page of Tee's Yen-Ta-Fo.
