From the bustling streets of Bangkok to the food-festivals of Phuket, Thaikhun has taken a pinch of the cavernous culinary landscape of Thailand to inspire their inventive menu. Home to both old-school street food favourites (such as pad thai, stir fries and Thai curries), as well as some inspired surprises (like their Bangkok Bad Boy burger), it’s grown quite a cult following for those with a hankering for fragrant, well-spiced and quality Thai food. For fussy eaters, it’s also a winner; at the end of the day, who can argue with a menu that offers barbequed pork on rice, as well as a Thai take on chicken katsu? Truly there’s something for everyone - and that’s a glorious thing.
Let’s take a minute to bathe in the look and feel of the venue itself too. The interior is adorned in hand-picked trinkets and memorabilia, nodding to the roots the menu hails from. When the space reaches its peak busy hours, Thaikhun embraces its best atmosphere, with conversations, music and laughter filling the hall, allowing you to reimagine the energy and excitement of authentic street-food hangouts.
And if you want to recreate Thaikhun at home, you’re in luck - they also have their own cooking school where they show you the secrets of Thai cooking. These sessions include a fruit punch on arrival, an introduction to the importance of ingredients, a demonstration from one of their chefs, and the chance to try your hand at cooking a few dishes. Oh, and of course, there’s plenty of time to taste your culinary creations.
This convivial temple of bric-a-brac serves a belting atmosphere and top quality eats to boot. Get in a round of cocktails and let your imagination run wild; you’re in for a real treat.
