Written by Miguel

Widely considered to be one of the world’s most delicious gastronomies, Thai cuisine is a big favourite of both madrileños and tourists from all over. If you’re visiting Madrid or planning to, you’ll be glad to know that there is no shortage of high-quality Thai restaurants in the capital of Spain. If you’ve tried it before, we know you’ll end up in at least one of these restaurants. If you haven’t yet, you should consider it. With their bold, spicy flavours and enchanting aromas, Thai dishes are more than food – they are sensorial experiences! Here’s where you can find the best Thai food in Madrid:

Thailand by way of Madrid! One of the most genuine Thai food places you’ll find in town, Maiia Thai scores highly in all of the most important criteria by which a restaurant should be measured – their food is excellent, the service is friendly and the prices are quite accessible. While their portions might seem small to some at first glance, they generally end up being perfectly fulfilling. With a menu as strong and varied as this one, it’s always hard to recommend something in particular – but with that said, you can’t go wrong with their peanut sauce satay or the very special Crying Tiger (beef with red onions, cucumber, lime and chili).

Address: Calle de la Princesa, 13

Considered by many to be the best Thai restaurant in Madrid, Phuket Thai is another place you should definitely try. Offering a varied menu where traditional recipes are each given their own unique twist, as well as more economical daily options, it manages to please different tastes and accommodate different budgets. In addition to great food, it’s also a very amicable place – the owner himself can often be found personally making sure that his customers are satisfied. If you choose to pay them a visit, make sure you try their delicious mango rice and coconut milk dessert.
