I had the Superb Pad Thai with the small shrimps. It only had 2 shrimps but still was an excellent dish (90 baht). My wife had the vegetarian Pad Thai which was ok (60 baht). We arrived as the place opened at 5pm, so we got right in. Later there was a queue. The orange juice is tasty with a... More

I definitely recommend making the stop here to see what all the craziness is about. I have never seen such a well run restaurant serving such a small menu. Get the orange juice and pay the 10baht to eat in the A/C room. Great Pad Thai, not sure if it was the BEST, but definitely great. Expect a long line... More

This is the place where the magic happens, you are here not just for the good food but for the experience. Big queue outside but they work impressively fast so don't worry about it.

Amazing pad thai here! We watched the chefs out front cooking in thier woks. There was a line out the front and we happily joined it as we had read reviews of the food. We honestly were not waiting long at all and for an extra 20cents got seated in Air-conditioning! The coconut frozen drink was one of the most... More

Thip Samai is said to be the best pad thai in Bangkok. It was very good but idk if it's the very best. This place is very popular. There's a long line but it moves quickly. More impressive than the pad thai was the orange juice they make daily. Make sure you get a bottle!

This pad thai should be the best I've tried. And the orange juice is just so delicious. There's a long line to get in but it's definitely worth it.

Very good pad Thai. Probably the best we've had in Thailand. Smallish portions when compared to North America but just perfect for us. Leaves room for all the great desserts from the hawkers around the area!

This is, I believe, the most famous phad thai restaurant in Bangkok. Lines on the street outside are long. But people eat quickly and it wouldn't take long until you have a plate of delcious noodles in front of you.
