This restaurant is tiny. They only have a half a dozen tables. I have only eaten there once and it was fine. However, I have picked up take-away from there many times. I have spent many, many, vacations and business trips in Thailand and know what Thai food should taste like. I can attest that Korphai's offering is completely authentic.... More

This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Kallio and especially near Hesari and Vaasankatu. They have the best lunch deal in the Sörnäinen area, where most of the dishes they serve can be had for less than 9 euros with either chicken, pork or tofu.

I especially love the Thai Fried Rice (it tastes really good with fish sauce and bird eye chili), Tom Yum Kai (it's so full of herbs, and is absolutely tasty) and Kueitieu Naam (Noodle Soup that...

Located at Helsinginkatu in the Eastern part of Helsinki city centre, this small Thai restaurant offers a nice surprise. Even humble, the food is good and tastes authentic. If you ask your meal hot, it will be hot. Pretty nice selection of traditional Thai dishes. If you order to take out, the food comes well packed with additional chili or... More

Great food. Nearly each time I am in Helsinki I try to visit the place. Tasty food and fast service. TM yam soup for 5 euro is a must.

Great little Thai restaurant and takeaway. Went there for dinner with two colleagues and we all enjoyed the really authentic Thai food, very rare in Europe these days. They don't serve beer which is the only disappointment but other than that, fantastic place highly recommended.

This small thai restaurant took us by surprise: amazing tasty dishes with fresh and light flavours. Coconut milk sauce with lemon grass was perfect, super balance of acidity and sweetness. Highly recommend!
