Top 5 Local Restaurants in Bangkok – Take your foodie self on a journey

Food is something that plays a huge part in a vacation, and when you are on a holiday in Bangkok, you'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to tasty meals; therefore, let's take a look at the best of the lot.


Thip Samai Pad Thai

One of the most popular restaurants in town, this is a must-have on your checklist if you want to explore the food in Bangkok. Locally known as the Ghost Gate, this place boasts the best Pad Thai in Bangkok, and if the reviews are anything to go by, rightfully so. Made with fresh and locally sourced ingredients, the generous portions served here is delicious and is not oily like other pad Thai places. The opening hours are from 5 pm until 1 am the next day, and on the weekends, the eatery opens earlier too.


Jae Fai Restaurant

If you want to taste authentic local Thai food with no fusion whatsoever, Jae Fai is the place to go. The famous dish here is the rolled crab omelette, and if you eat it with the drunken noodles, you will be in a gastronomic heaven. Opening at 5 pm every day, this eatery is close to the Thip Samai Pad Thai.


Wattana Panich Restaurant

The Wattana Panich cannot be missed as it is out in the open on Ekkamai Road. Still carrying the look and vibe of an old shophouse, this place has a mammoth stewing pot which always seems to have something boiling inside of it, while the lady at the shop stirs it continuously. Order a bowl of beef noodles, and if you don't eat beef; go for the chicken or anything else. Every dish they serve here is much loved by the people who eat here, so you can't go wrong with your order no matter what you choose.


Lek Seafood Silom

Located just 10 minutes away from hotels like Chatrium Residence Sathon Bangkok, this is one of the best Sathon restaurants to go to if you love seafood dishes. At this restaurant, you'd be in constant confusion as to whether you are eating at a street stall or a native eatery. This could be because Lek Seafood Silom is a tiny unit located under the BTS Skytrain Station. They use a lot of chilli in all their dishes; if you think you can't handle the heat, it's best to forego this place.


Sabai Jai Gai Yang

For a nice and cosy dinner that you can enjoy while you people watch this is the place to be in. Named after their most popular dish, when you go to this restaurant, the grilled chicken is a must-have. Other things you can order are the papaya salad, larb pork salad, and grilled liver. Sabai Jai Gai Yang is open from 10 am and shuts only at 11 pm, therefore, you can probably step in for brunch, lunch or early dinner when in that part of Bangkok. This restaurant is also on Ekkamai Road, like Wattana Panich Restaurant.
