First, in my view, there is NO excuse to have less than perfect rice at a restaurant charging these prices. The rice was overcooked and gummy. Then one relatively small to medium size crab with onions and bell peppers cost a whopping 780 THB. There was absolutely nothing to get excited about. The clientele was mostly foreigners. No comparison to Bahn Som Tam or Soei, where the food and atmosphere were both exciting. Simply Thai, Teddington - Gordon Ramsay
The kao mun gai features the single best taste on this list: a profound chicken consommé that will solve your sniffles and brighten your Tenderloin walk home. Kinda. The other two dishes to know: five-alarm spiced chicken wings and green curry with rabbit, which proves that rabbit doesn’t taste like chicken (and is also so much better than chicken). Plus, cocktails from the Trick Dog gents (get the Kem Kon). Conor Maynard Cooking At YumYum Thai Restaurant

Among the green, leafy vegetables and herbs that are usually eaten raw in a meal or as a side dish in Thailand, the most important are: phak bung (morning glory), horapha (Thai basil), bai bua bok (Asian pennywort), phak kachet (water mimosa), phak kat khao (Chinese cabbage), phak phai (praew leaves), phak kayang (rice paddy herb), phak chi farang (culantro), phak tiu (Cratoxylum formosum), phak "phaai" (yellow burr head) and kalamplī (cabbage).[38] Some of these leaves are highly perishable and must be used within a couple of days.

Ice cream was introduced to Thailand during the reign of King Rama V when the first ice cream machine was imported to Thailand.[71] Ice cream in the second half of the 19th century was made of coconut water blended with ice. At first, ice couldn't be produced in Thailand. That led to importing ice from Singapore. Ice cream was then an upper-class treat, but over time ice cream became more widely available and the product was improved by replacing coconut water with coconut milk. Faithless - Insomnia (Live At Alexandra Palace 2005)
The best feature about FTBT was the service. We had the pleasure of being served by adequately attentive staff. Food orders were promptly taken without feeling rush. Courtesy with the utmost respect given. Water never went empty. I have to disagree with the 2 previous reviews claiming service was poor. Possibly, there were some additional wait staff hired with more experience, but I would be hard pressed to agreed with those statements at the current time.
Noodles are a popular street food item as they are mainly eaten as a single dish. Chinese-style noodle soups, fried noodles, and fermented Thai rice noodles (khanom chin), served with a choice of different Thai curries, are popular. Nearly everywhere in Thailand you will see som tam (green papaya salad) and sticky rice sold at stalls and roadside shops. This is popularly eaten together with grilled chicken; but if the shop doesn't sell any themselves, someone else nearby will. In most cities and towns there will be stalls selling sweet roti, a thin, flat fried dough envelop, with fillings such as banana, egg, and chocolate. The roti is similar to the Malay roti canai and Singaporean roti prata, and the stalls are often operated by Thai Muslims. Sweets snacks, collectively called khanom, such as tako (coconut cream jelly), khanom man (coconut cassava cake), and khanom wun (flavored jellies), can be seen displayed on large trays in glass covered push-carts. Other sweets, such as khanom bueang and khanom khrok (somewhat similar to Dutch poffertjes), are made to order. Eat Tokyo a Restaurants in London serving Japanese Food like Sushi and Sashimi
This is a very comforting dish for Thai people because it’s essentially noodles in a gravy. The gravy gets its flavor from fish sauce, black soy sauce and oyster sauce and shouldn’t be too sweet. If this dish is served with condiments like dry chili flakes, sugar (for you to add as you like), fish sauce and sliced hot chilies in white vinegar, you’re eating authentic lad na.
Start the meal with sweet coconut milk-marinated pork satay, served with a tart and spicy cucumber relish, and a traditional shredded salad featuring either green mango or crab and cabbage. Hot and sour shrimp soup, fragrant with citrusy lemongrass, is an invigorating second course. For the centerpiece of the meal, a coconut milk based red curry with roasted duck, fresh pineapple, and plenty of spice is perfect served over steamed rice. End the meal with sticky rice with mangoes, or a batch of crispy fried bananas. AMAZING THAI FOOD IN LONDON - Thai Silk Restaurant
The quintessential Thai aroma! A bold, refreshing blend of fragrant lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime leaves, shallots, lime juice and fish sauce shapes this classic soup, giving it its legendary herbal kick. Succulent fresh prawns and straw mushrooms lend it body. A versatile dish that can fit within virtually any meal, the distinctive smell reminds you of exotic perfume, while it's invigorating sour-spicy-hot taste just screams 'Thailand'!

Kaeng thepho แกงเทโพ Central One of the dishes mentioned in the poem of King Rama II on Thai dishes, it is a central Thai curry originally made with the fatty belly part of the Pangasius Larnaudii (thae pho; shark catfish) but now more often belly pork is used as is the case with the version shown in the photo. The other main ingredient in this curry is phak bung Chin (Chinese water spinach). Thai Takeaway North London
A Thai Airways employee opened Bai Tong near Sea-Tac in 1989, where she created a place for homesick expats with her authentic Siamese dishes—and hospitable servers in traditional silk garb—like fragrant meang kum lettuce wraps, stunning crispy garlic chicken, a comforting banana-coconut milk kluay buat chee dessert. Since then she’s moved to more destination-worthy digs near Southcenter, a favorite for homey Thai that now has a casual Pike/Pine sibling with its own street food menu, where seared pork belly options abound. There’s plenty besides belly, though, like tender gems of mussel shrouded in crunchy layers of fried egg.

Feel bad giving this place only 3 stars, but I have to be honest based on our collective meal experience.  I had cashew chicken and my wife had pad see ew.  My cashew chicken was quite good, and when they say Thai spicy they actually deliver.  Unfortunately my wife didn't really enjoy her pad see ew.  The noodles were a bit over cooked and it was just too sweet overall.  That being said, we'd both eat here again in a heartbeat.  The service was top notch, and the atmosphere was nice (we ate outside on the deck).  Perhaps the pad see ew was just having an off night.  Next time we are in the area we will give it another shot!

Khao soi – curried noodle soup enriched with coconut milk (traditionally a novel ingredient in the cooking traditions of northern Thailand), garnished with crispy fried wheat noodles, and served with pickled cabbage, lime, a chili paste, and raw shallots on the side. Arguably Chiang Mai's most iconic dish, it was originally a dish of the Chin Haw, Chinese-Muslim traders from Yunnan Province in China. Northern Thai khao soi is different from the Lao version.

If you're looking for a delicious and beautiful dish to serve guests, try this Thai shrimp curry recipe. The curry sauce recipe is easy to make -- just stir together with a few basic ingredients, or blend them up in a food processor, chopper, or blender. Adding sweet and sour notes are fresh or canned pineapple chunks plus coconut milk and dry toasted coconut for a tropical-tasting Thai curry you'll want to make again and again.

After that Thanksgiving dinner I didn't think my appetite would be returning anytime soon but here we are on a Saturday evening, 5 pm and Marisol and I were suddenly ready to eat... In one of those unusual moods where we don't know what we want, one of our regular places or something new, something simple or upscale, traditional american grub or foreign cuisine... we decided to stay local and we don't have much in the way of local (as in very close to our home). Rise is down the road and a delicious option (and at times very busy) but instead decided on Rise's old location at the Village Tower Shoppes. I know the place gets busy because it's next door to the yogurt shop we frequent but we were early so the place was expected to be quiet but still had half the tables taken. One of the waitresses welcomed us and let us pick a table. The interior is comfortable and kinda cute, modern but still utilizing asian style. The menu board highlighting the specials of the day were done in various colors of chalk (kinda reminding me of Sakaya Kitchen in Miami). The tables were finished with a rough edge to give them a good look and the mural on the wall is an impressive touch. We started with a couple sushi rolls... based on pictures I had seen posted on yelp, I expected better presentation (as most of the sushi dishes had colorful/cut fruit/veggies as garnish and many event had a flower but ours was simply our sushi; no presentation to impress). We had a SPICY TUNA ROLL which surprised me to only include 6 pieces but were good. Also shared a RAINBOW ROLL; the fish tasted very fresh. Even though taste was great and the freshness of the fish was excellent, I thought the rice was a bit loose (but not falling apart). My girl had a bowl of RAMEN with chicken... excellent broth and definitely a heart dish with noodles, chicken and veggies. I had a PAD THAI with shrimp (menu says prawn and I ordered prawns, but the waitress repeated back shrimp which I found to be funny; even though they taste the same, I wonder if she knows shrimp and prawns are different). My Pad Thai was excellent and not overly sweet. While we were eating our main dishes the restaurant filled up with customers... We finished our dishes while the table next to us were still eating their entrees... We sat very patiently for our waitress to return so we could have a to-go box and our check... The table next to us finally caught up and finished their dishes; while we still sat waiting for our waitress... They received their check from their waitress. I gestured with my hand for their waitress but she continued walking right past me. Confused, my Marisol and I just looked at each other dumbfounded. The other table has paid their bill and left and our waitress is still missing in action. Another family wanted the empty table so (2) waitresses began to clean the table together and at this point I'm annoyed/frustrated, so I gesture again and I say excuse me to clearly see and hear us... the waitress from earlier doesn't even acknowledge me and says something to the other girl. The other girl waves "hello" at me.... I know she was young but really?!?!?! After more than 20 minutes, Marisol gets up to go to our waitress who was only concentrating on tables at the other end of the restaurant. She says sorry but I'm done at this point... I just want to pay and go. Good food but disappointing service.

Sabuy Sabuy II gives each diner free scoops of homemade green tea-wasabi or banana-sesame sorbet at the end of the meal. That’s enough reason to BART over, isn’t it? But oh no, that’s just the beginning. Amidst stiff competition in the Albany-North Berkeley corridor, Sabuy Sabuy II stands out because it is one of the very few (maybe only) Thai restaurants around where you are encouraged to forgo the menu and let the ever-gracious owner Bart create your meal. A "Thai omakase", if you will. The regular menu is no slouch either, including way-better-than-it-sounds sweet fruit salad for a starter. The second Sabuy Sabuy gets the nudge over the University-adjacent original, which’s geared more towards take out (though it has a money patio).

Fit to Be Thai'd is truly a great place. The atmosphere is fun, relaxed and a great place to be after a long day of hitting the slopes. The service is not great. You should expect waiting over an hour for your meal, but that is the charm of this place. You learn to relax and enjoy time with your family. You really get a taste of the laid back Vermont vibe. The organization and effectiveness of Fit to be Thai'd is probably a 3/10, and things are always a big chaotic. But hey, that's the charm, right?! Anyways, the food is really good! Great food, good prices, good portions! I constantly come back here because of the delicious food and enjoyable atmosphere. Eating & Chatting with Mark Wiens!! - Hot Thai Kitchen
Khai dao ไข่ดาว Fried egg Literally translated khai dao means "star egg", referring to the star-like shape of the egg after it has been fried. Traditionally the egg is fried in large amounts of hot vegetable oil which produces a crispy outer texture. Khai dao mai suk is a fried egg where the yolk is still runny, the way it is most commonly eaten when served with, for instance, khao phat ("fried rice") or kaphrao mu rat khao ("pork fried with holy basil served with rice"). Fried egg with a (very) hard yolk, khai dao suk (mak), is needed when the fried egg is used for making yam khai dao: fried egg salad. Liam Gradidge At The YumYum Restaurant

Madison Valley’s new Thai restaurant is casual enough for takeout, but the street food–centered menu and windowed dining room are worthy of an actual night out: Round sausages burst with garlic, a larb (aka salad) of crispy mushrooms dusted in rice powder is so bright and savory it’s almost oysterlike, while a trio of chicken drumsticks (and a satisfyingly rich curry) ground the kao soi noodle dish. Familiars like pad thai receive equally careful treatment. Mango Tree - Thai Restaurant in Belgravia, Central London

Pardon the pun, but tourists go nuts for this stir fried dish. Perhaps it's the wildly contrasting textures of a dish that saut's chicken alongside roasted cashews, sweet soy sauce, onions, chilies, pepper, carrot and mushrooms. Perhaps it's the sweetening dash of honey that appeals. Do you really care? The important thing is that this dish works: it's simple but scrumptious, a little bit tame and yet still totally Thai.

At first, San Jose’s Siam Fine Thai Cuisine strikes as the normal, generic Thai restaurant found in every city. But when you notice the old lady methodically cutting sweet basil at one table and the delicate texture of sea bass and myriad layers to its green curry, you realize you’re onto something here. The most-ordered dish is the decidedly-not-authentic-though-exceedingly-worthwhile "Mango Tango" that sounds like (and is) a Jamba Juice flavor, but really is a slightly sweet, very spicy, not-cloying-at-all plate of prawns, chicken, cashews, mango, and various vegetables. Being sandwiched between the faux Europe of Santana Row and mega-mall dread of Valley Fair, avoid the area at all costs come holiday shopping time.

After taking your shoes off upon entry, brace yourself for intense yellow curry and the always-fun-to-construct meing com (basically lettuce wrap tacos filled with dried shrimp, among other ingredients). Serving up classic, the-way-it-was-and-should-be Thai cooking, there’s nothing avant-garde about Khan Toke. It’s the Tadich Grill of SF’s Thai establishments.
