Whereas many Thai dishes are now familiar in the West, the vast majority are not. In many of the dishes below, different kinds of protein, or combinations of protein, are interchangeable as the main ingredient. Beef (nuea), chicken (kai), pork (mu), duck (pet), tofu (taohu), fish (pla), prawns or shrimp (kung), crab (pu), shellfish (hoi), or egg (khai) can, for example, all be used as main ingredients for kaeng phet (red curry). Thus kaeng phet kai is red curry with chicken and kaeng phet mu is red curry made with pork. The Great Gildersleeve: Birdie Sings / Water Dept. Calendar / Leroy's First Date
Spicy roasted duck in a powerful basil sauce is a must and the pad Thai here -- which gets a bad reputation from lesser purveyors -- will show you how the use of real tamarind and palm sugar gives the poor bastardized icon new life. Also a must: their signature drunken noodles -- a dreamy, relentlessly bold carb, spice, and meat marriage. Oh, and Arun used to be a sommelier with the Mandarin Oriental in San Francisco (hint hint, get wine).
So many types of appetizers find their way onto Thai menus. We’ve seen a fair number of restaurants thinking they can get away with fried cheese triangles, but fried appetizers are actually very common in Thai cuisine thanks to the Portuguese influence. Krathong tong can be found at fancier restaurants in Thailand. These delicate fried shells are typically filled with chicken, potato, corn, carrot and a tangy cream sauce — we know, we know, not very Thai-sounding ingredients, but trust us on this one. Cats Cafe des Artistes Thai Restaurant London Incredible Five Star Review by Vix
I came to this restaurant yesterday with my wife and other family and we were greeted my the hostess and she sat us a table that was not wiped down, it still had food particles on top. We asked her to wipe the table and she said that the servant will do it. When the servant came she looked at the table and said "it's weird that they sat you at this dirty table" and we told her that the hostess told us that the servant will clean the table. She was very surprised by that, but said it's no problem she will do it. The servant was very nice the whole time, we liked her. The food was not bad. I had the dragon roll and asked them to put raw jalapenos on top and it wasn't a problem for them. 3 stars because of the dirty table.

Ice cream was introduced to Thailand during the reign of King Rama V when the first ice cream machine was imported to Thailand. 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.
We are giving To B Thai three starts because the actually delivery was a bit of a fail. The bag came soaked in curry sauce and ripped open and made a huge mess. I recommend they use a better container in order to avoid this. We lost about 40% of our curry and had a lot of clean up to do. All our food was covered in curry. We also requested no utensils and got the full work up. Yum Yum Thai Restaurant
The global popularity of Thai cuisine is seen as an important factor in promoting tourism, and also increased exports of Thailand's agricultural sector. It is a result of deliberate "gastrodiplomacy". In June 2009, the Tourism Authority of Thailand organised a conference to discuss these matters at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre in Bangkok. TAT Governor Seree Wangpaichitr said, "This conference was long overdue. The promotion of Thai cuisine is one of our major niche-market targets. Our figures show that visitors spent 38.8 billion baht on eating and drinking last year, up 16% over 1997."
