Looking for the best Thai restaurants in London? Although we love a good pad thai and green curry but there’s so much more to Thai food than that. From the new innovators such as Som Saa and Smoking Goat, to the old school authentic classics, these are the best in London.
Som Saa is all about regional Thai dishes made using a mix of seasonal British and authentic Asian produce. They’re famed for their Bangkok HOT som tam but everything packs a serious punch here – the whole deep fried seabass and northern style herbal curry of Dexter beef shin are ESPECIALLY delish. The Thai inspired cocktail list is well worth a look too, you won’t see drinks like those many other places in town. One of the best Thai restaurants in London
It was named the UK’s best restaurant at the 2018 National Restaurant Awards and we can confirm that Kiln defo lives up to the hype. The food is inspired by the Thai borderlands, including Burmese and Yunanese spices and flavours, and there’s lots of cooking over open fire. The jungle curry of brill is a winner (and spicy too) and the claypot baked glass noodles are an absolute must-order too.
Krapow’s mission is to prove to Londoners that there is so much more to Thai food than Pad Thai and Green Curry – and they’ve nailed it. It’s cheap and cheerful but the food is bang on. The menu is pretty short, with a few small dishes and larger plates to choose from, so you can work your way through a good chunk of the menu. We loved the ‘Sai Oua’, a smoked Chang Mai-style sausage; the turkey larb salad; and the ‘Son In Law’ eggs, deep fried and served with a sweet tamarind dip. A newcomer but already one of the best Thai restaurants in London.
