Say ‘Thai food’ and immediately it conjures images of mountainous plates with brightly coloured Pineapple rice accompanied by vivid vermillion bowls of tom yum goong. Sweet, spicy, salty and savoury, Thai food seems to be one of few cuisines that encompasses all these traits in a single dish. Each flavour distinguishable from each one and yet blending effortlessly together like a masterful symphony. Perhaps it’s magic or the prowess of the chef that allows Thai food to be both comforting and intensely satisfying. Now, what about Thai Food Delivery?
Whether you are in desperate need to cure your wanderlust (now, more so than ever) to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Golden Mile Complex or have run out of delivery options, let this list of 11 Thai food delivery places be your guide for a great night in.
Krapow (featured in our Humans of F&B series here) does this best. Serving the classic dishes such as their Krapow Minced Pork ($9.60) that comes with a crispy, craggy egg and spicy minced pork—it’s a match made in Thai wonderland.
Or try one of Krapow’s Drunkard Noodles, which as the story goes, was invented after someone stumbled home after a fun night of drinking and whipped up a meal with whatever that was left in the refrigerator. If you ask me, that’s the best kind of meal. Go all out with the Drunkard Noodle – Tiger Prawn and Fresh Squid ($18).
Beware, Krapow’s dishes aren’t for the faint-hearted and they go heavy on the spice. So, prepare to sweat bullets. This is good news for fans of Tuk Tuk Cha’s drinks: you’re likely to love a glass of Krapow’s Thai Milk Tea ($5) to quell those fires.
2. Un Yang Kor Dai
Un Yang Kor Daiis as authentic as they come, serving Thai favourites as well as Northern Thai cuisine, better know as Issan cuisine. Thai food is more than just Tom Yum Goong and Pineapple Fried Rice, though they are very good.
This spring chicken is seasoned with aromatics such as peppercorn and coriander for up to three days before being grilled to perfection. What you get is a juicy, intensely flavourful chicken that will prove itself against all other renditions of this dish.
3. Nangfa Thai Kitchen
If it’s take-out night at home, then look no further than Nangfa Thai Kitchen. With a startling array of Thai dishes, you can be sure that your Thai night in is covered.
A classic Thai dish that has to be on your list has to be the perennial favourite, the Phad Thai Noodle ($6.50), full of that elusive wok hei and delicately dances between spicy, sweet and sour. There’s no other dish that’s as satisfying.
For those looking to venture out of your comfort zone, theClaypot Tanghoon with Prawns ($17.50) is a good bet. Yes, it’s a little more pricey than the ever-reliable Pad Thai but that extra change is worth it. What you get is savoury and bouncy tang hoon full of wok hei that might make you forget all about Pad Thai altogether.
4. Soi Thai Kitchen
One thing that Singaporeans cannot resist is the siren call of affordably priced delicious grub. AtSoi Thai Kitchen, this is exactly what you can expect. This hipster joint serves delectable Thai cuisine that’s prepared by a Thai chef, so you know you’re getting the real deal.
When you’re at Soi Thai Kitchen, it’s a go big or go home situation. But with prices like this, you have to go big.
It’s all your favourite Thai food in a convenient package. Take their Bento Set A ($12.50) that comes with a punchy Wing Bean Shrimp Salad, Stir-Fried Chicken with Cashew Nut, Thai Springrolls, and Pineapple Rice. Truly a bang for your buck, and promising a satisfying lunch out of it.
6. Bangkok JAM
Yes, a trip to Bangkok is all but a distant dream now. But perhaps Bangkok JAM will bring the vivacious city a little closer with their delicious fare.
Bangkok is always the most fun with friends, so that’s why you’ll have to order the Mixed Grill Platter ($40.55 for 2 – 3 pax) for your go-to travel buddies.
Charred and smoky, this platter will hearken the boisterous and lively streets of Bangkok where your only care in the world is where the next tasty pit stop is.
7. Saap Saap Thai
Saap Saap Thai features all the Thai favourites that we know and love, but with a clever twist that is sure to keep you coming back for more.
Think tender ribbons of beef swimming in a flavourful, slurp-worthy broth. All you need right now is a chilly day and you’re good to go. For those who are particularly ravenous this evening, you’ll be glad to add the Snacks Delights Box A ($7.50), which comes with four tantalising Chicken Wings and four Chicken or Beef Balls.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the Olive Fried Rice Bowl with Minced Chicken ($13.80) which features an aromatic bed of olive fried rice, moreish bits of Sweet & Sour Minced Chicken and a sunny-side egg—after all, beef donburis are so last year.
9. Koh NangKam
While we tend to think of Thailand as the land of Tom Yum Goong, in actuality, Thai food runs the gamut and Koh NangKam showcases some of the best of Southern Thai Cuisine.
One of the highlights of this 100% Muslim-owned restaurant has to be their gorgeous seabass that comes steamed in a glorious sauce. A must-try for anyone would be the Koh NangKam Seabass ($43). It comes with ginger & plum-based sauce that’s not only hearty but herbaceous to boot.
This long-time fan favourite of Koh NangKam is sure to make you swoon when you tear into this flaky delight. Enjoy Thai food delivery anywhere you are, for all to delight in!
10. Kor Kai
Since we took a trip down South, with Kor Kai we travel to the Northeastern region of Thailand.
Besides serving a medley of Northeastern Thai dishes, Kor Kai is also famous for their Signature Thai Grilled Chicken, which you can enjoy as part of their Thai Grilled Chicken Rice ($9.30). Fragrant and flavourful, you won’t want to share when you tear into their succulent chicken, or their Isaan Beef Steak Rice ($13.90).
11. Aroy-Dee Thai Kitchen
For a good bowl of green thai curry, you’ll want to get yours at Aroy-Dee Thai Kitchen. Full of goodies and juicy chicken strips, there is nothing quite like it. Sure, the famous tom yum goong gets all the limelight and rightly so, for who can resist the spicy sour tang of one?
But, my money is on Gang Keaw Wan Gai ($15) or more commonly known as Green Curry. Smooth and thick with coconut milk, this underrated cousin of Tom Yum Goong is where it’s at. I don’t think Thai food is something that we’ll ever get tired of, for it is at once familiar and exciting.
