8 Best Thai Restaurants in Barcelona
Over the last few years, the number of quality Thai restaurants in Barcelona has been increasing. We’ve created a list of the very best places for authentic Thai food across the city.
Where to find the 8 Best Thai Restaurants in Barcelona
1. Petit Bangkok
2. Bangkok Cafe
A cute, well decorated restaurant in the Les Corts area serving really authentic Thai dishes. A nice setting that makes you feel like you could actually be in a side street eatery in Bangkok. Helped by the quality of the food. Also, the really spicy dishes (marked on the menu with three chillis) do have quite a kick to them.
3. Thai Zaap
Must try dish: Kaeng dang nua (red curry with beef, vegetables & coconut milk)
4. Thai Noodles
This cosy venue, with just 4 or 5 tables, in Gracia, is part of the Petit Bangkok group. Although, it’s a great little restaurant in it’s own right. The individual handmade menus are a nice touch. Slightly less options, but what there is, is really authentic and delicious. It took a while to open it’s doors again after the pandemic, but thankfully one of the best Thai restaurants in Barcelona is serving its fresh and zesty food again.
5. Thai Erawan BCN
Must try dish:
Ped ka pao krob
(crispy duck with Thai chilli, garlic & basil)
This unassuming Thai restaurant is slightly off the beaten path. On a side street not too far from Placa Espanya. Don’t let the location put you off though. This has one of the most authentic Thai kitchens in Barcelona, producing some of the best traditional dishes you can get anywhere in the city. The menu’s extensive, with woks, curries, salads and soups, like the tom yam which is incredibly flavoursome. They cater to the Spanish desire for not too much heat in the food, but ask them to make it very spicy (muy picante), and they won’t hold back. My crispy duck was almost at Thai spice levels.
6. Thai Barcelona
7. Thailandes Restaurant
On Diagonal Street, at the top end of Passieg de Gracia, is Thailandes Restaurant. A small entrance, it’s easy to miss, but you’ll be glad you didn’t. A large selection of quality traditional & Thai fusion dishes are available. Also, they currently do a good value fixed price menu. 1 starter, 1 main, 1 dessert and a drink. €15 euros on weekdays and €18 euros at weekends.
