Is this really Tokyo? You’d never guess this Thai/Vietnamese restaurant is located in Omotesando. This place is in a small side alley but it’s still very popular amongst locals so you might have to stand in line. Pictured above are the spring rolls (310yen/per roll), pad thai (780yen), tom yam kun noodles (950yen), and gapao rice (990yen). I’m not sure if they are authentic flavors, but it sure was tasty and I really liked this Asian street market vibe. They also have a take out menu/section on the side of the restaurant so you can order to go as well.

Found a Thai restaurant in Jiyugaoka and my friends and I were all pleasantly surprised with how good it was. As summer is kicking in to full effect here in Tokyo it’s so hot and humid outside that the nice air conditioning in this restaurant felt SO good. The yellow Thai curry (1000yen) and the egg noodle soup (900yen) were both good, the pad woon sen (1050yen) was a little strong on the flavoring, and the Gapao (1000yen) was a bit spicy but good. The staff also was very attentive and kind. Will be back here whenever I have my Thai food cravings here in one of my favorite neighborhoods in Tokyo.
