Jae Fai Restaurant

Best Local Restaurants in Bangkok

Jae Fai Restaurant benefits from its location next door to Thip Samai Pad Thai Restaurant, but for many experienced street food connoisseurs in Bangkok, this is the real draw card for genuine local Thai food. First thing to note is the price: 400 baht for a crab omelet is expensive for local food in any country, especially Thailand, land of the 30 baht plate. But considering the huge chunks of white crab meat, juicy river prawns and other premium ingredients, it is definitely worth the price.

The rolled crab omelet is famed at Jae Fai, along with crispy noodle seafood rad na (starchy gravy dish ladled over prawns, squid and mussels) and drunken noodles – the dish that Rick Stein ate that first made this restaurant famous among westerners. Service can be slow so you need patience at Jae Fai, but they do say ‘good things come to those who wait’.

What to Order: crab omelet, served as a large roll filled with fresh, white crab meat. (ไข่เจียวปู)
