THAI (help!)

  • n

Hi everyone.

Just moved here from NYC like 3 months ago . and I am really craving some good Thai.

Dont expect to find what I can get back home but thats ok.. I would just like a nice authentic place I can go and have some good food..

I can't understand these thai-japanese 'fusion' places that are everywhere.. sushi bar in a Thai restaurant?? and they're usually really bad at BOTH cuisines.. lol

any advice would be appreciated, I live in ft lauderdale, but would be willing to go as far south as Miami ... Since I go there often.. THANKS!!!

  1. These are the best I've been to:

    Eddie Hill's Sushi & Thai
    134 N Federal Hwy
    Hallandale Beach, FL 33009-4353
    (954) 454-0023

    Siam Lotus Room
    6388 S Dixie Hwy
    South Miami, FL 33143
    Phone:(305) 666-8134

    1. In Fort Lauderdale area, there aren't a lot of good Thai restaurants. There is one that I like, on Sunrise Blvd around where Sunrise and US-1 meet, but I can't remember the name. Sorry about that.

      In Hollywood area there is Nakorn Thai -- haven't been there in a while but I've always had a good meal there. In Sunny Isles there's Siam River, on 163rd Street east of US-1.

      Eddie Hill's is a combo Japanese/Thai and they're better at the Japanese; I wouldn't recommend that based on what you mentioned in your post.

        Eddie Hill has GREAT Pad Thai & Curry Dishes and more.

        AND if you want to try vietnamese, this place has an extensive authentic menu. I have only been there once and enjoyed it. Very reasonable prices.

        Little Saigon Vietnamese
        16752 N Miami Ave
        North Miami Bch, FL 33169-6033

          The one at Sunrise and us1 is SukhoThai in Gateway Plaza. That's were we go most often, although I work in Wilton Manors and we get take out from Galanga and Siam Cuisine. Both on Wilton Manors Dr. and very good too.

        2. By the way, it's very helpful if you include the city/area of your preference in the subject line of your post. Florida is such a big area for this board to cover -- if your subject line reads 'South Florida' or 'Fort Lauderdale', you'll get more responses and it's easier on all participants across the state. I hope you enjoy your new home!

          1. My favorite thai in sobe is the thai house. It is not amazing but it will do...

            1. Tamarind Thai in Miami Beach (71st Street a few blocks west of Collins Ave.). Very mellow place with great service. Chef has a few places in London but this one is apparently more casual.
