Baan Paa Jazz

Baan Paa Jazz

Highly recommended

More on Victory Monument

If you're in the Rangnam area the basic yet fantastic Baan Pa Jazz restaurant should be at the very top of your must-try list.

Travelfish says:
Covered with a corrugated tin roof, the walls plastered with newspapers articles, prizes awarded to children, and pictures of the King, the woman behind this restaurant -- Pa Jazz herself -- stands behind two gas burners with her hair unbelievably coiffed considering the heat. With only the one locally famous chef sizzling up dishes for a dozen dented tables, the place is all about tastes rather than ambiance or gimmicks.

Make up applied like an opera star, Pa Jazz stirs and fries beneath the smoke hood, sending out incredible versions of central Thai classics. Her red curry with boar is amazing, but starting the meal with it ensures you won't taste anything else the rest of the evening. A good lighter option is pla goong, a delicate salad of prawn, cabbage and thinly sliced lemongrass among several other herbs.

Dishes from 65 - 245 baht. Highly recommended and great value for money.
