Khao San Road is the backpacker's ghetto in Bangkok. Judging by the line-ups out the door, Torontonians were desperately seeking authentic Thai food. Small tables, a hip vibe and the freshest of ingredients lead to an eating experience that will blow your Thai takeout out of the water. Menus cater to eating preferences, from vegan to gluten-free. Dishes may appear standard, but when you try the Green Curry or Pad Thai with fresh noodles and sauce that has been motor and pestled to perfection, you will think differently. They don't take reservations, so come early to make an informed food decision. Fond food memories await.
- Entertainment District's Best Restaurants: "There are no reservations available here, but please trust us: it is worth the wait. They typically move things along quickly, and you will rarely have to wait for more than half an hour."
- Best Restaurants: "If you are a spice connoisseur, here is the Khao San Road legend: no spice, mild, medium, spicy, Thai spicy, extreme spicy, top spicy. Tread carefully, as you can't retract your decision. For the good of your tongue, start lower on the scale than you think."
