Algumas décadas atrás, não havia restaurantes tailandeses em Praga. Hoje em dia, a coisa é diferente, dado que diversos restaurantes tailandeses estão espalhados por toda a cidade. A maioria é administrada por residentes locais que estão casados com tailandeses/as ou que estiveram na Tailândia e trouxeram o seu amor pela gastronomia tailandesa na viagem de regresso. Experimente o NOI—The Art of Taste ou o Lemon Leaf, que são ambos populares entre os residentes locais e turistas.
If you have had enough of Czech filling dishes, this is probably one of the best choices in Prague to head to for affordable Thai cuisine. This nice restaurant interior, with its helpful and accommodating staff and tasty meals, was recommended by the Thai Embassy in Prague for its authenticity and high quality in 2012. Most mains are around 200 CZK.

Os pratos tailandeses e japoneses são servidos neste restaurante localizado numa rua traseira entre a Ponte Carlos e a Praça Malostranské. Um interior simples, um serviço educado e uma atmosfera bastante tranquila, enfim, uma boa escolha para quem procura boa comida tailandesa a preços razoáveis. Há um chefe de cozinha tailandês e os pratos tailandeses são, obviamente, muito melhores do que o sushi ou sashimi abaixo da média. Embora as refeições possam ser mais autênticas e picantes, elas provavelmente são ajustadas ao gosto dos moradores locais – o que, no entanto, não diminui o seu valor. O macarrão tailandês e o caril verde são recomendados.

Located in the Lesser Town district, just a few hundred metres from Malostranske Square, NOI is a nice Thai restaurant with a Zen interior that feels a bit like a club. When you enter the restaurant you will feel the super-stylish but chilled-out, Far Eastern atmosphere with Buddha statues, lanterns and lotus blossoms all accompanied with music (which some might find a bit too loud). On the menu you will find classic Thai rice and noodle dishes such as Pad Thai, Som Tam Thai, Kang Phed Moo and soup Tom Yam Koong. Mains range from 150 to 300 CZK, or you can opt for the NOI full set menu for two people for 850 CZK.

Located close to and between the Palladium and Bila Labut shopping malls (hidden up a passage beside a department store), this place has quite simple décor and doesn’t look very promising. But don’t get confused by the interior – if you are up for good Thai food at a reasonable price, prepared by Thai cooks, this is the place to go. Most mains are under 200 CZK.
