The fresh ingredients, relatively low prices and authentic Thai feel make Daradalay our number one place for Top 5 Khao Soi Bangkok. A bowl of Khao Soi costs 50 THB.

2. Hann Khao Soi Lovers
Hann Khao Soi Lovers moved to a different location due to popularity. Previously, Hann Khao Soi Lovers was located in an alley close to Ari BTS Station, which is a hugely popular alley to get cheap and delicious food. Especially during lunch, when office workers and university students in the area are looking for a delicious meal, this alley is crowded. Nowadays, you can find Hann Khao Soi Lover a Saliratthawiphak Road, a busy road between Ari BTS and Saphan Kwai BTS. Hann Khao Soi Lovers is changed into a real restaurant with airconditioning and more seats. The menu is also expanded, however, the three most popular dishes still remain on the menu: Khao Soi and two different rice noodle curries. The Khao Soi is by far the favourite and can be seen as one of the best khao soi in Bangkok. What changed as well is the fact that the curry doesn't run out anymore, which was the case when Hann Khao Soi Lovers was still a street food vendor. So you don't have to worry that you can't taste this heavenly curry when you visit this restaurant. One of the things that didn't change is the price. A bowl of delicious chicken Khao Soi with a Chicken Drumstick cost you only 50 THB. You can check recent reviews and ratings by TopTravelFoods users on the Hann Khao Soi Lover Page.

3. Ong Thong Khao Soi
Ong Thong’s first restaurant was located in Chiang Mai and due to its massive success, the owners opened a Bangkok branch in 2017. This was a good move, as Ong Thong quickly gained popularity among Bangkok residents for serving one of the capital’s best Khao Soi. Ong Thong Khao Soi specializes in all sorts of Northern Thai treats, including Northern Thai Sausage and Boiled Field Crab but as the name suggests, the main draw is the Khao Soi. The two-floor, modern restaurant is located close to Ari BTS Station. Compared to the other Khao Soi dishes on our list, this version has a deeper colour because of the herbs they use. Prices range from 69 – 109 THB. You can check recent reviews and ratings by TopTravelFoods users on the Ong Thong Khao Soi Page.

Nomsensingha is a small and modern restaurant located close to Bang Chak BTS Station. It’s run by a young, friendly couple and serves Northern Thai dishes. What sets Nomsensingha apart is that they specialize in Chiang Rai Khao Soi rather than the Chiang Mai variety served by the other restaurants on this list. This means their tasty Khao Soi has less coconut milk and we really like the pork ribs version. The price for Khao Soi ranges from 65 to 120 THB. You can check recent reviews and ratings by TopTravelFoods users on the Nomsensingha Page.

* Update: Recently, the popular Northen Thai Ginger Farm Kitchen that is based Chiang Mai opened its branch in Bangkok close to Phunnawhiti BTS. On their menu, that's full of authentic Northern Thai specialties, is also their famous Khao Soi listed.
