As one of the prime destinations for seaside lovers in the state of Victoria, the city of Geelong holds lots of appeal. Foodies will be in heaven here: far from being a small town shielded from the world, there are plenty of good-quality international eating options lining the city’s streets. Geelong's Thai restaurants in particular are known for their high-quality ingredients, dedicated chefs and a mixture of innovative and classical cooking techniques. Located both in the city centre and in many of the city's suburbs, you're never far away from top Thai restaurants in Geelong.

The cuisine of Thailand has proven to be a hit among those in the West looking for spice, texture and flavour and Geelong's Thai restaurants know exactly what goes down well, so if you're looking for classics of the cuisine, you're in luck. For one of the most authentic Thai restaurants in Geelong, head down to Dan's ThaiKitchen on Gilbert Street just a few minutes' walk from The Esplanade. Here you can find all of your favourite dishes on the menu, including the popular green curry (cooked with vegetables, basil and green chilli) and pad thai (stir-fried noodles served with spring onions, egg and bean sprouts). But you don't just need to stick to what you know: if you're going with a group of mates, get some sharers like Plaa Sam Rod (barramundi fillets in a sweet and sour chilli sauce) in for starters and sample something new.
As the second-largest city in the state of Victoria, there's plenty to the do in the centre of Geelong. Thai restaurants are everywhere you look in the middle of town, but if you're feeling a bit intrepid then it's a good idea to explore a little further out of the city centre. Why not head to the suburb of Highton, located just to the south-west of the CBD, where you can find a range of the best Thai restaurants Geelong has to offer? Malee Thai located on Bellevue Avenue is a particular favourite: with a menu jam-packed full of regional specialities like Panang curry (vegetables and lime leaves in a fiery chilli sauce) and Gang Sapparod (red curry cooked with pineapples, Thai basil and chilli), there's something for everyone. Located on a little row of cute shops and cosy boutiques, if you come here in early afternoon to sample the lunchtime menu you can even fit in a little shopping around your food! So if you're looking for Geelong's finest Thairestaurants, exploring what lies beyond the centre of town is a great idea.
Located right on Corio Bay and the Barwon River, Geelong's location makes it a great destination for those who love the water. There are plenty of Thai restrautans in Geelong ideal for enjoying this coastal heritage, such as Tuptim Thai right on the Geelong Waterfront on Eastern Beach Road. Seafood aficionados will love the Shoo Shee Goong (stir-fried prawns in a coconut and chilli sauce), while those looking to sample the spiciest dishes Thailand has created can try the Gang Paa: known as jungle curry, this vegetable and red chilli medley leaves out the coconut milk - so it will be spicy! No matter how hot the flavours of your meal are, enjoying the refreshing sea air at this favourite among Geelong's Thai restaurants is sure to cool you down.
