“Bangkok Restaurant” is a hole-in-the-wall Thai restaurant located in a very random area in Roppongi which you would never go to unless someone recommended it to you. However, this place serves authentic Thai food and many people seem to know about it since it’s always packed with customers.
The menu is straight forward: you get to choose between 5 main dishes that change daily for 1000yen. All the lunch sets include a small soup, salad, and dessert. Pictured above are the ‘Pad Thai – fried noodles with shrimp, peanuts, egg and vegetables’, ‘Stir-fried chicken and basil leaves with rice & fried egg’, ‘Green Pork Curry with rice’, and ‘Stir-fried chicken, bamboo shoot and red curry with rice’.
Everything we’ve had so far has been really good. Check it out if you’re in the neighborhood and in the mood for authentic Thai cuisine.

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.
