The Best Pad Thai in Bangkok

Slumber Party Hostels

Welcome to Slumber Party Hostel. We are  proud to offer the best party hostel experience for backpackers across Thailand and Indonesia. 

As you pick up that same old blend of Pad Thai from one of the stalls on Khao San Road, have you ever wondered if there was a better version somewhere else in Bangkok. If you are a big fan of Pad Thai, take it up to the next level by finding the best Pad Thai in Bangkok.

THIP SAMAI

313 Mahachai Road, Old City (not far from Wat Saket)

Open from 5PM to 1AM

The local’s favourite Pad Thai place has a funny nickname. Also known as Pratu Pee, which means Ghost Gate in Thai for some unknown reason, Thip Samai has been running for more than 50 years now.

In this humble location, you will receive a big portion of Pad Thai coated in a thin layer of omelet with the subtle hints of smokiness from the charcoal that it has been cooked on. It may seem slightly pricey for 60Baht when compared to the usual Khao San fare, but it is well worth the extra Baht. If you are feeling a bit rich, go for the 200Baht splurge to have you Pad Thai with huge portions of prawns.

LEUNG PHA PAD THAI

Maha Chai Rd, Khwaeng Samran Rat, Khet Phra Nakhon, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon 10200, Thailand

Open from 10AM to 2AM

A lesser known contender hiding behind the crowd that cues in front of Thip Samai each evening is Leung Pha Pad Thai, which should not be missed. With moist noodles cooked in a good mix of tamarind paste and shrimp fat before its stir-fried with the rest of the toppings in the walk, the Pad Thai has an intense flavour that will blow your mind.

BAAN PADTHAI

21-23 Soi Charoen Krung 44, North Sathorn, Bangkok, 10500

Open from 11AM to 10PM

With a name that translates to House of Pad Thai, much is to be expected from this colourful, converted shophouse near the Sapan Taksin BTS Station in Bangkok. Baan Pad Thai meets these expectations by serving more than the usual Pad Thai with all the variations it has to offer. For those who are allergic to seafood, have your first Pad Thai here. The Pad Thai Moo Yang is served with tender grilled pork and may actually taste better than the classic.

PAD THAI EKAMAI

303/4 Soi Sukhumvit 63, Khlong Tan Nuea, Watthana, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

Open from 5PM to Midnight

A small hole in the wall in Ekamai has a claim on the title of Best Pad Thai in Bangkok with their signature Pad Thai Ekamai that is brimming with fresh squid, mussels and king prawns, making it worth its grand price of 250Baht. Pair it with some pork satay and you will have a grand feast.

PAD THAI MAE AM

5 2253/5 Rama IV Rd, Khlong Toei, Bangkok 10110, Thailand

Open from 12AM to 10PM

For an authentic experience, head to Pad Thai Mae Am where the seating consists of miniature plastic stools and the Pad Thai is done the classical, old-fashioned way, where the noodles have been sitting in a mixture of tamarind paste, palm sugar, and fish sauce before entering the wok, giving you the most flavourful Pad Thai you will ever taste in Bangkok.

NARA

Erawan Bangkok Ground Floor

Open from 10AM to 9:30PM

For a posh version of Pad Thai served in a stylish restaurant and presented with a lot of sass, Nara’s Pad Thai will wow your senses. Topped with fresh prawns cooked with precision, Nara’s take on Pad Thai has the added fragrance of banana flower, making a unique version of the usual Bangkok street food.
