Baan Phad Thai is a restaurant devoted to Thailand’s most famous noodle dish. While it’s true that most travellers visiting Bangkok will enjoy a pad Thai – usually cooked in front of you in a wok as old as the person cooking it – the versions created at this converted shophouse close to Sapan Taksin BTS Station are a little more special! Because the original recipe is very simple, many pad Thai restaurants and street stalls add unique ingredients or condiments – there’s nothing new about that.
But Baan Phad Thai takes this simple delicious dish to the next level with high quality ingredients and a few innovative variations such as Phad Thai Boo (crab) or Phad Thai with Moo Yang, a traditional and extremely popular grilled pork, perfect for those who are allergic to seafood and don’t get the chance to eat this famous Phad Thai.

Baan Phad Thai restaurant itself is beautifully decorated in a simple Thai vintage style, using superb old fashioned tableware you wish you can take home as a souvenir (please don’t!). Every detail has obviously been selected with this vintage spirit in mind, from the wooden tables, the carved stools, the wood panels on the walls and even the restaurant logo.
Baan Phad Thai is an open door restaurant with only fans, the way it used to be in the past. The music matches this atmosphere perfectly, with old Thai folk tunes often based on famous English songs (the Thai version of “I feel Good” by James Brown was particularly catchy).
Note that the portions are really generous so don’t go overboard when ordering and, in addition, you might be offered a delicious special Thai desert by the very friendly, English-speaking team.
The place is pretty hard to find but it’s worth it. It’s located in one of those tiny ‘soi’ (a soi is a narrow street) located between Robinson Shopping Mall and Shangri-La Hotel. With Google maps you won’t have any problem to find it anyway, so if you are a real Phad Thai lover, your exploration will be well rewarded.
