  • 8 amazing Thai restaurants that make us go "wow"

Baan

Le Du’s Thitid Tassanakajohn  here retreats from modernist culinary techniques in favor of homey, everyday Thai meals which prove chic, high-quality dining can be delivered at pocket-friendly prices. The menu underscores the importance of traceability: the eggs are from Udomchai Farm, the beef from dry-aging king Company B, the seafood from sustainable fisheries in Prachuap Khiri Khan. Standout dishes include a kai palotom saep hybrid and deep-fried sun-dried pork.
 
139/5 Wireless Rd. (between Japanese Embassy and Lumphini Police Station) Tel. 02-655-8995, 081-432-4050
 
 

Benjarong

Here’s an elegant Thai restaurant with traditional decor that offers authentic flavors to rival Nahm and Bo.lan, but with the flexibility of a five-star hotel. Yes, you can order a la carte, and even a pad Thai to go with your somtam. But Benjarong also serves a carefully-crafted degustation menu with modern tweaks such as seared foie gras with tamarind or basil ice cream with a salty meringue. Befitting the setting, presentation and service are impeccable.

Bo.lan

Featuring fine Thai cuisine made using traditional methods and the best ingredients, Bo.lan—an amalgam of chef-couple Bo and Dylan Jones’s names—has made a splash in the global dining world with its aromatic curries, beautifully plated salads and artfully conceived menu. Adding to the allure is a striking dining room, set in an old house replete with tropical garden and close to hipster thoroughfare Soi Thonglor. Try the “Bo.lan balance,” a menu which changes along with the seasons.

Khao

Vichit Mukura headed the Mandarin Oriental’s Sala Rim Naam for 28 years before teaming with Japanese restaurant Yuutaro to open a chef’s table specializing in Thai cuisine tasting menus featuring imported ingredients. The restaurant only welcomes small groups of 4-12 people each evening who can watch the chef working on classic Thai dishes like spicy salad cooked with premium ingredients such as matsusaka beef.

Osha

The very definition of “OTT,” Osha hosts a menu of reimagined Thai dishes in a dining room crowned with a gold-leaf-coated stairwell and elaborate wallpaper depicting scenes from Thai mythology. Dishes like the Ocean & Flora salad highlight the menu’s two strong suits: premium produce and botanical flavors. Elsewhere, weary staples like green curry are dressed up with spherified pearls of coconut milk.

Paste

Here, two of Bangkok's most highly-regarded modern chefs, Bongkoch Satongun and Jason Bailey, join forces with the aristocratic Snidwongse family, descendants of Rama II, to plate up recipes from ancient cook books, with a particular emphasis on curries. Try the massaman lamb curry of crispy young durian, coconut apple and Thai cardomom.
 
3/F, Gaysorn Plaza, 999 Phloen Chit Rd. Tel. 02-656-1003
 
 

Saneh Jaan

Vaulted ceilings, rich vermillion-red accents and dining tables hewn from whole tree trunks create a majestic setting to indulge in refined Thai cuisine drawn from ancient recipes. The menu packs powerfully flavored dishes like gai baan kua bai jan (free-range chicken stir-fried with wild basil) and gaeng ranjuan (shrimp-paste pork soup).

Supanniga

One of Bangkok's favorite Thai restaurants has built its reputation on delicate traditional plates bursting with strong, authentic flavors. The casual decor plays with the vivid yellow of Supanniga flowers, while other references to Eastern Thai culture abound. Don't miss the pu jah (blended crabmeat and pork, seasoned with pepper and steamed inside crab shell), panang nuea lai (beef chunk in red curry) and moo cha muang (stewed pork with herbs and cha muang leaves).
