Thai food is arguably the most popular Southeast Asian food in the world, with restaurants even in the smallest of cities throughout the globe. For its many similarities with many Indonesian food, especially for the use of ingredients, Thai food is also widely acceptable by Indonesians’ palate. In Jakarta you can find many Thai restaurants that are just as good as an actual culinary trip to streets off Bangkok or its top restaurants. Here is a list of our favourite Thai restaurants in the city!
1. Face Bar & Lan Na Thai
An upmarket, modern Asian bar, and restaurant. The restaurant – Lan Na Thai, has been known as one of Jakarta’s finest Thai restaurant. Their Executive Chef Mrs. Noppawan Supanong, uses fresh ingredients and delicate preparations to create the quintessential tastes of Thai cuisine.
