4 Famous Restaurants In Thailand

1. Soei (ร้านเส่ย)

Soei is among the top restaurants in Bangkok, known for its bold and flavorful dishes that cater to those with a taste for rich flavors. One unique aspect of Soei is that it has only one chef, P’Soei, who oversees the cooking process from start to finish. This ensures that the flavors of the dishes remain consistent and never disappoint.

However, the downside of having just one chef is that during weekends or holidays, the waiting time for food can be as long as 2-3 hours due to the high number of guests and the limited cooking staff.

Despite the wait, dining at Soei offers a chance to savor a variety of dishes like Kaem Pla Too Tod (crispy fried Indian mackerel cheeks with garlic and salt), Goong Chae Nam Pla (shrimp dish with lemon juice, wasabi, chili and garlic), Yam Woon Sen (stir-fried vermicelli with vegetables and meat), Pla Goong Pao (shrimp salad mixed with chili, garlic and herbs) and many more.

4. Thipsamai (ทิพย์สมัย)

Pad Thai Thip Samai, also known as Ghost Gate Pad Thai, is one of the most famous names for Pad Thai in Bangkok. The reason it has such a special name is because this restaurant specializes in serving customers late at night until dawn. If you come to the restaurant at night, you can see a lot of customers, from locals to foreign tourists, visiting the restaurant to enjoy the food.


It has common ingredients such as tofu, baby shrimp, garlic, and bean sprouts, but the Pad Thai here is made according to a special recipe, so it tastes much better. It is even considered a place to sell the best Pad Thai in Bangkok. One of the most famous Pad Thai dishes here is Pad Thai Haw Kai Goong Sot. Pad Thai is stir-fried with shrimp and wrapped in a thin layer of golden egg. In addition, there is also a fried egg noodle dish that is equally attractive and delicious.
