Top 7 Best places to eat authentic Thai food – Where to find the real deal

Most eateries in Thailand's capital Bangkok cater to foreigners rather than locals who know how the dish should actually taste. Here are 7 of the best places to enjoy authentic Thai food.


Yaowarat Street

Yaowarat street, known as the Chinatown of Bangkok is a great place that offers a wide variety of Chinese and Thai street food dishes. Some of the popular dishes to try out include barbecue spears with peanut butter sauce, Pad Thai, Barbequed Seafood, dim sun, pepper broth, crispy duck, noodles, fried rice and chicken cooked in different styles. Pahurat, Bangkok's Indian corner is a short walk from Yaowarat street in case you're craving Indian food. You can buy food at any time in Yaowarat street but the best time to visit it after working hours when people finishing work visit this street to enjoy a meal.


Saphan Taksin BTS Skytrain Station

This is an older part of Bangkok which consists of food stalls and restaurants that have been serving people for decades, is a foodies paradise for authentic Thai food. Prachak Pet Jang, for example, is a Chinese restaurant that first opened its doors in 1909, is famous for its roasted duck. Charoen Saeng Silom, another gem located in this area which opened in 1959 is famous for its Braised Pork Knuckle. Boonsap, a dessert shop in the vicinity sells Thai sweets, cookies and Thai desserts like the delicious mango sticky rice dessert.


Sukhumvit Soi 38 Street

The food market down Sukhumvit Soi 38 is an indoor food court that offers mouth-watering Thai street food at cheap prices. While the market has been a long-standing place that offered food to its patrons, the number of shops has reduced significantly over the years due to the construction of a new building.


Krua Apsorn

Located near Khao San road and the Democracy monument, Krua Aprsorn is a restaurant that offers one of the best authentic Crab Omelettes. The owner of this eatery used to work for the Royal family of Thailand ensures that all dishes that are cooked at the restaurant retain their authentic Thai taste. The restaurant's signature dish is the Kai Food Boo; an omelette made using crab meat that is rich in taste and fluffy in texture.


Thip Samai

Thip Samai advertises to offer the best Pad Thai in all of Bangkok, a daunting task considering that Pad Thai is sold at each street corner and block of Thailand. While it's nearly impossible to tell if the Pad Thai lives up to the hype, Thip Samai does offer tasty Pad Thai and one of the best orange juices that you will find in Bangkok.


Blue Elephant

Located at the heart of the city near some of the best hotels, resorts and meeting rooms Bangkok has to offer similar to Chatrium Residence Riverside Bangkok, the Blue Elephant is a Fine Dining restaurant that was built in 1903. The building that houses the Blue Elephant restaurant is a magnificent example of the Thai Chinese architectural style that was famous during the time it was built. The interior of the building oozes of elegance and majesty and the service offered by the staff is brilliant. Nooror Somany-Steppe, the master chef and owner of 9 Blue Elephant restaurants across Bangkok, the Middle East and Europe is well known all over the world for her signature Thai cooking.


Sawang Noodle

Originally located in Hua Lam Phong and called Bamee Sawang Noodle, Sawang Noodle is a world-famous café for its Noodle soup. In addition to the noodle soup, they also offer handmade egg noodles, salty crab dishes and honey sweet barbequed port.
