Have been coming here for about 6-7 years. It's consistently one of the best pad thai places around in Bangkok and better than other big names. But it's also probably the most expensive one. Overall though, worth the money for a treat. It is packed...with flavors, crispy fried bits, decent size and fast efficient service in or out of aircon. You should try.More

Good and quick food, but I was overcharged because I'm foreigner. My partner (Thai) took me to the place and ordered her favorite menu. While I paid she was in the close-by 7/11 getting something - the price suddenly increased by 20% per meal. Going...back she has been told "we had the big scrimps." - she told me it was exactly the same meal as all the times before, just more pricey. As we don't support this we decided to not go back anymore. Earned some more THB once, but lost two customers for good - smart way of running a business.More

I really wanted to love this place - location, price, decent service were a great start. But unfortunately the pad Thai was underwhelming. It was somewhat bland and I’ve had far better even outside Thailand.

Convenient at Thonglor just next to the famous mango fruit shop this is the crispiest plumpest oyster omelette I’ve ever had.a little pricey but well worth it, it’s not as oily despite how crispy it is. The pad Thai is quite good as well but...small portion for the price while full of beansprouts. Good amount of large seafood.More

I am always looking for the best pad Thai in Thailand. I guess it’s because I love noodles and I love the taste of a good pad thai- the perfect balance of sweet, salty, spicy, sour and throw in chewy, crunchy and that spells heaven...to me. This pad thai makes a decent bid with an added twist. They added the extra crunch inspired from the fried oyster batter. (I’m not an oyster fan so it was good to see they offered a seafood, fish option. Hats off to their creativity). Over the course of our meal, we saw Japanese, Korean, Chinese, European and a few Thai coming through. Nothing like a crowded eatery right? The food comes fast. The open street kitchen is located adjacent to the cozy air conditioned diner. It’s all fast and furious. This was a fun meal. Noodles perfect, bean sprouts fresh and plenty, prawns big but a tad tough and bland. I like my pad Thai humble so I don’t really care for big or small prawns. Just keep it tasty right? Will we come back? Yup! Tip: located next to Thong Lo BTS. If you don’t speak Thai, no worries. They have pictures in their manner. Only 2 dishes here. Pad Thai or pancake. After deciding on both, just select seafood, prawn etc.. If you need healthy options, skip this place. If you love to try new things, come on in. Happy eating everyone!More

Until I find another pad Thai that can defeat this champion, this is by far the best I've ever tasted. Generous about of oyster and sick wok skill, you have to try this if you happened to be in this area.

First off, its not really a resto in the real sense of the word. It's more an eatery for locals. The good thing: there is an enlgish menu and photos so you know what to order. You can see the food cooked in the stall...beside the eatery and that in itself is a mini event. Going to the resto (if you're taking the BTS) you'll find an array for street food vendors and a sticky rice and mango stall that you can drop by for dessert.More

This local food but some influence by Chinese food, taste is great with good serving style and many topping to choose. The place equipped with air conditioner separated building with kitchen but you can see how they cook it. Price quite expensive for local but...not for tourist while it’s located at thonglor is japanese expat area in bangkok, easy to find it nearby thonglor BTS station.More

Just okay Pad Thai. Costs a bit more than other PadThai restaurants. They tried to make it crunchy by pan frying it more but our group did not find it unique.

Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor
and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and
well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in
hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in
one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared
to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While
great for a night out, the area is nothing short of
interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix
