  • Dao Tai
    4.5 stars

    Highly recommended.

    508/26 Th Phran Nok, Thonburi
    T: (02) 412 2385

    Dao Tai specializes in southern Thai, which can mean a blistering tongue and sweat dripping from every surface. But here the dishes seem to be perfectly balanced — hot, yes, but also fragrant with fresh herbs and smoothed out with just the right amount of fat or sweetness. This is a curry shop, ... read more

  • Zoom 4 Zoom 5
    4 stars

    Laid back spot for a drink

    Soi Wang Lang, Wang Lang Market, Siriraj
    T: (02) 226 1745

    This small pub on the second floor is a laid back place to have a drink and some excellent gap gleam — food served while drinking. It's actually a self-service place, with drinks and food ordered at a window, and the prices reflect it. Large bottles of beer are only 65 baht, and plates of food ... read more
