Top 15 Best Thai Restaurants in KL & Selangor 2022

‘Sawadeekap!’ That’s the iconic phrase that you would hear at any Thai restaurant because it means ‘hello’ in Thailand. Located just right above east Malaysia, Thai food has become very famous in this country. In the year 2017, seven Thai dishes appeared on a list of the “World’s 50 Best Foods” which is a poll of 35,000 people worldwide that was carried out by CNN Travel.

Today, you can even see elements of Thai food in Malaysian dishes such as varieties of Tom Yam, stir-fried kangkong, and others. That is how famous and well-loved Thai food is amongst Malaysians. If you want to experience a taste-tingling experience with flavourful and fragrant Thai dishes, we recommend you to indulge in these 15 best Thai foods that you can find in KL and Selangor.

What are the different types of Thai cuisine?

Traditional Thai cuisine generally falls within 4 categories which are “tom” (boiled dishes); “yam” (spicy salads); “tam” (pounded foods); and “gaeng” (curries). In addition, the deep-fries, stir-fries, and steamed dishes in Thai cuisine are inspired by Chinese cuisine. Thai cuisine mixes a variety of flavours and textures of different dishes with a serving of rice and soup on the side. This mixture is intended to bring out the fragrance and flavour of each dish.

There are regional variations of Thai cuisine which are influenced by different regions such as northern Laos, the Yunnan Province in China, Khmer cuisine from Cambodia, and Vietnamese cuisine. Also, Thai cuisines that contain liberal amounts of coconut milk and turmeric are believed to have Indian, Malaysian, and Indonesian influences. Aside from regional variations, there are also different types of Royal cuisine such as Ranchuan curry and rice in jasmine flavoured iced water. These Thai dishes can be traced back to the dishes that were cooked and served within the Thai Royal Palace.
