Well it's not the best Thai but certainly not the worst. The chicken satay starter was served barely warm, the taste was good but bit dry as if reheated. The curry and Thai noodles ok but not so great. Better go to the Thai in...More

If you love Thai food this is a real find. Lovingly created dishes served indoors or out in the middle of Milan. Best surprise is the bill. Really excellent Value and our waitress whose name we missed was absolutely lovely.

The place is small and gets crowded with 12 people, especially when they stand at the bar or ask for information leaving the door open to freezing drafts. The food is good, but very westernised (no original thai spices, not spicy) to appeal to Italian...More

In 2012 the Thai Bistrot was born as an offshoot of the historic Artest jewelry shop of Corso Garibaldi in Milan. A small 50's dining room furnished with a Persian carpet, old cinema seats, a big gilded mirror and colonial wallpapers. As a background, bebop jazz music. Your lunch or dinner will be watered by a selected list of Italian wines, our special and classic cocktails and, of course, Singha beer, brewed in Thailand since 1932.
