Brisbane's Best Thai

Brisbane's best Thai restaurants title=Brisbane's best Thai restaurants

One thing that I can tell you for sure – Brisbane isn’t short of Thai restaurants. With hundreds to choose from, there seems to be a Thai restaurant or two on the corner of anything that slightly resembles a main road or somewhat busy street. 

In saying this, I don’t wonder why.  Few cuisines are as vibrant and plentiful as Thai. The sweet, sour, spicy and salty flavours that lend themselves to lively salads, soups and rich curries are hard to pass up.
 
We asked your opinion and have put together a few favourites from the north, south, east and west, here’s the shortlist! Any other Thai restaurants in Brisbane to add?
 
North
Siam Square | It is a favourite Thai restaurant amongst locals for take away and cheap BYO dinners. From the origami waterlilly napkins to the friendly Thai staff, Siam Square is quaint and authentic. 
 
Where: 888 Brunswick Street, New Farm
Contact: 3254 1884
 
Silver Charm | This tiny little Thai restaurant in Brisbane is family owned. You can feel the love in every dish. Don’t be afraid to have a chat to the super friendly chef when she has a few minutes to kill.
 
Where: 175 Wickham Street, Fortitude Valley
Contact: 3216 0516
 
South
Green Papaya | A romantic candlelit atmosphere, it is still perfect for dinner with a group of friends. Serving Thai and Balinese, Green Papaya challenges the good ol’ westernized Thai menu. I promise you will be impressed by their unique and exotic dishes. 
 
Where: 898 Stanley Street, Woolloongabba
Contact: 3891 5000
 
East
Golden Buddha | The Thai food is delightful. With beautifully crafted presentation, the vegetables are always super fresh and cooked to perfection. It is such a gorgeous setting and perfect for those hunting for somewhere relaxed yet special for a first date.  
 
Where: 3 The Corso, Seven Hills
Contact: 3902 0005
 
West
My Thai | My Thai is most definitely a crowd favourite. We suspect their popularity is the result of their exceptional service, lush interior (for a Thai restaurant in Brisbane) and their special seafood dishes.
 
Where: 113 Haig Road, Auchenflower
Contact: 3217 7277
 
Thai Mountain | I’m going out on a limb here… But I truly believe this suburban haunt has exceptional Thai food. Fresh and plentiful vegetables, rich flavours and generous portions.
 
Where: Shop 8/ 21 Goggs Road, Jindalee

Thai Wi-Rat is also a great find if your lurking in China Town. Don't pay much attention to the name though - you will certainly NOT find neither wee or rat in your dishes!
