The Best Thai Food Restaurants in London For Curry + Pad Thai

Get Your Thai Game On In Clerkenwell, Marylebone, and More...

Are you searching for the best Thai restaurant in Central London?  Look no further than KIN Street Food on Leather Lane in Clerkenwell/Farringdon. The Tofu Green Curry has become my guilty pleasure, and despite Mr. StyleBomb and I living on a student budget, we order it once a week, if not twice. Also try the vegetable potstickers with a chilli dipping sauce and the prawn pad thai. My Thai food runner-up is The Heron, a hidden gem in the basement of a Paddington pub. Once you walk down the dark stairs you will be welcomed by club lights and POPtastic karaoke hits in a room the size of a tube carriage, but the most surprising delight awaits inside. The Heron's pad thai is quite possibly the best pad thai I've ever had, it has the perfect amount of flavor, spice and vegetable-to-noodle ratio.


MONKEY & ME on Crawford St in Marylebone (try the duck red curry and vegetable pad thai).

THAI THAI on Old Street on the edge of Clerkenwell/Shoreditch/The City (I think their curry game is a lot stronger than their noodles, and their red curry is the MVP of the restaurant. Try the curries with their delicious coconut rice). 

SAWADEE THAI FOOD TRUCK If you work or find yourself near Old Street during the weekdays there is the very yummy Sawadee Thai Food Truck on the corner of Old Street and Whitecross St. Be prepared, there's almost always a line and curry flavors can sell out by 1:30PM, but it's so worth the wait.
