There are many things to do in Thailand lists that have ‘Eating Pad Thai In Thailand’. Indeed, the famous dish is one of the most popular Thai dishes ever. We are so sure retty much 99% of Love Thai Maak visitors have tried Pad Thai at least once. We have tried Pad Thai as well…probably more than 1,000 times no kidding. Although we can find Pad Thai in Thai restaurants around the world, there is one place you gotta try at least once if you’ve ever said “I like Pad Thai”.
Thip Samai Restaurant has the best Pad Thai in Bangkok. Okay, this might be overstatement and we might get negative comment about this. But as a Thai born and been living in Thailand almost 30 years, we believe we have tried Pad Thai enough to know which is good or bad. When one of our good friend recommended Thip Samai restaurant to us, we did not believe and also though that she was just being exaggerated. BUT when we tried for the first time, we were like “HOLY Pad Thai!”
About 15 minute walks from Khaosan Road (also in the Must-See 5 Bangkok Temples Tour Route), Thip Samai restaurant is located on Maha Chai Road which is a block away from Democracy Monument and half block away from Wat Saket (The Golden Mountain). It couldn’t be easier to find the restaurant especially you will always see a long line like this in front of the place
Once you get in, the first thing to order is the most addictive orange juice in Thailand (check out in the video). There is nothing like have a glass of cold extra pulped orange juice. The price is quite expensive, but you won’t be regret.
Alright, we know it’s time for the most famous Pad Thai. Take this!
At this point, do we still need explanation anymore? Your welcome Pad Thai lovers 🙂
