Pai

Long before Michelin recommended this spot (with locations in the Entertainment District and near Yonge & Eglinton), locals were crowding in for a taste of chef Nuit Regular's Northern Thai food. Made to taste like home, every dish Regular sends out is sweet and salty, sour, spicy, and entirely habit-forming.

Also from Chef Nuit Regular, this restaurant is rooted in Royal Thai culinary standards and the tasting menu at this Entertainment District spot is populated by a wealth of novel dishes. Take it all in with a 7- or 12-course parade of flawless Thai bites, or visit on weekends for à la carte brunch.


Som Tum Jinda

A Michelin-recommended Thai import, this restaurant near Church and Gerrard wows guests with an array of signature som tum dishes. Beyond that, the lengthy menu jumps from fragrant fried and grilled mains to noodles heaped with aromatic mix-ins.

Southern Thailand gets its due at this restaurant, with locations in Baldwin Village and Scarborough. Here, dishes are fiery and full-flavoured, whether you opt for the chef's specials or tried-and-true options, like Choo Chee Pla Too and Kua Gling.


Sala Modern Thai

Piles of local ingredients transform into Thai delicacies at this casual Danforth East restaurant. With a menu that jumps from appetizers and noodles, to rice, grilled mains and desserts, there's something to satisfy a world of cravings — be they for fragile Spring Rolls, Green Curry Beef or delicate Mango with Sweet Sticky Rice.


Sisaket Thai Kitchen

Sisaket Thai Kitchen

Kingston Road in Scarborough is home to this regional spot with a menu inspired by Thailand's Sisaket province. Built from a cornucopia of house-made ingredients, dishes here are extroverts flaunting a range of delicious traits. Whatever you order — from fiery Papaya Salad to rich and savoury Prad Prik Khing — it's hard to go wrong.

Khao San Road

Khao San Road

Find quintessential versions of beloved Thai dishes at this humming spot in the Entertainment District. From curries of every colour to Pad Gra Prao, Khao Soi and tamarind-perfumed, Bangkok-Style Pad Thai, dishes here leave no taste bud untouched, and no craving unsated.


Jatujak on Victoria Park

Jatujak on Victoria Park

Named for Thailand's largest market, this restaurant (with locations in Scarborough and Richmond Hill) tempts diners with a menu padded with home-cooked options. Fresh and fragrant dishes — some mild, others strictly for the heat tolerant — include Larb Kai and Tom Yum, street-style Jatujak Pad Thai and chef's special Som Tum Kai Yang.

Thai Nyyom

At this Junction Triangle spot, a stripped-down menu makes ordering a breeze. With a mere handful of rotating dishes — think Thai-style wings and Khao Soi Tofu — you'll be digging in, in record time. Keep an eye on Instagram or risk missing out on your fave chef's special.
