05 Places to find the best Thai food in Bangkok - Culinary jewels

It's a well-known fact that the best Thai food can be found in the humblest of eateries. Here's a list to find the best Thai food in budget friendly diners or sophisticated restaurants.


Ratchawat Market & Sriyan Market

Let's start with the most budget-friendly places in the city. Nestled in the discreet green district of Dusit, you will come across two very traditional Thai markets. The Ratchawat Market and Sriyan Market have plenty of dining options serving the most delectable Thai cuisines. At the Ratchawat Market, you get some fine roast duck, mouthwatering beef noodles, to die for shark fish curries bursting with flavour. A few steps away from Ratchawat you get the Sriyan Market, which is home to a selection of restaurants specializing in Thai cuisines. You get some amazing noodle dishes, rice, curries and meat dishes that need to be relished. The life in this part of town is pretty slow paced so the locals take their own time to savor the meals.


100° East Restaurant

If you want to dine in style, then try the 100° East restaurant at the Anantara Sathorn Bangkok Hotel. The expert chefs here will cook up the best Thai cuisines for its guests. The ambiance of the place is similar to a plush western restaurant furnished with hardwood furniture and opulent fabrics. The authentic Pad Thai served here is one of the best you'll find in Bangkok so make sure to order one when you go. The Thai curries are also pretty awesome so try some different flavours.


Silom Road

Located in the CBD of Bangkok, Silom Road offers plenty of variety if you are hungry. Finding a restaurant in Silom is not so difficult and there are plenty of places that cook up some great Thai dishes. If you are exploring the city then head to Silom road during mealtime.



This is an upscale restaurant serving old school Thai food. If you want to taste the relishing flavours of authentic Thai cuisine in an upscale setting there is no better place than Bo.lan for you. Run by a husband and wife duo, the culinary flair here is amazing. The ingredients for the dishes are sourced from various parts of the kingdom and everything is prepared to perfection by the chefs themselves with minimum use of machinery.



You find the best Thai dishes served in the hundreds of carts, eateries, markets and restaurants in the bustling Chinatown. Go to Yaowarat if you want finger-licking tastes that will fulfill your craving for Thai food. There is a huge food culture in this part of town, so you can eat, drink and mingle with the locals. Talk to locals about the traditional dishes they recommend and where best to have it. Every nook and corner of Yaowarat is stacked with barbecue grills, roadside stalls, food carts and plastic chairs. You can nit pick from different places so that you get to enjoy a variety.
