Dao Tai

Highly recommended.

What we say: 4.5 stars

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, so expect lots of different dishes waiting under glass to be served family-style.

Don’t miss out on kaeng liang, one of the south's regional specialties, an orange curry, usually of fish and vegetables or fruit. This isn't a place to dine late as when they run out of something, they are out for the day.

Not really convenient to any public transportation, the best option is to take one of the river ferries to Wang Lang Pier and walk — it's about 15 minutes west on Phran Nok on the north side of the road, sign only in Thai (´ÒÇäµ) but the street number is visible. Not much English spoken, but just point at what you want!

Highly recommended.
