    What’s the deal about Thai restaurants in Glasgow?

    From the West End down the River Clyde and through the city centre to the East End, up in North Glasgow as well as in the Southside, Thai restaurants in Glasgow have made their mark as popular choices for an introduction to Southeast Asian cuisine. What is it about Thai cooking that makes it so unique? Sample any Thai dish and you will discover a complex yet balanced interplay of three or more of sweet, sour, salty, spicy and bitter flavours, served up to you in an artful manner in a showcase of colours and textures – a real treat for the senses. Shrimp paste, fish sauce and soy sauce are the typical taste enhancers and at Thai restaurants worldwide, including Glasgow, the dishes are presented at once, instead of in a series of courses. Don’t believe what you may have heard about eating Thai food with a pair of chopsticks! You know you’ve found an authentic Thai restaurant in Glasgow when the waiter provides you with spoons and forks, the way it should be.

    Spoilt for choice at Glasgow’s Thai restaurants

    The cuisine of Thailand carries influences of the countries with which it shares a border – namely: Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, although Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian and Western cooking make their impact too, mostly brought about by immigration and trade. So what should you order when you get to a Thai restaurant in Glasgow? Start off with a small plate of crunchy spring rolls and balance out the grease with a light but flavourful som tam (green papaya salad). Moving on to the mains, it’s a toss up between noodles or rice. Go the classic route at Glasgow’s Thai restaurants with a much-loved pad thai (stir-fried rice noodles with egg and tofu) or a savoury bowl of khao soi (crispy and boiled egg noodles in curry broth) native to the northern region – if you can find it on the restaurant menu!

    There’s always more to discover at Thai restaurants in Glasgow

    The Thais love their rice, whether they have it plain and accompanied with steaming hot and sour tom yum soup, green or red curry, or fried and garnished with pineapples (khao phat sapparot), basil (khao phat kaphrao), or shrimp paste (khao khluk kapi). Have either of them all to yourself, or mix and match some of these with a handful of sides to share with your crew at Glasgow’s Thai restaurants – you can’t go wrong with pad krapow gai (spicy Thai basil chicken), phat phak ruam (stir-fried veggies) and kai jeow (Thai-style egg omelette). Those with a sweet tooth will not be disappointed when it comes to the dessert selection across Thai restaurants in Glasgow. Popular picks include khaoniao mamuang (mango sticky rice), especially in the summer months when mangoes are in season, takoh (coconut cream jelly), and coconut ice cream. A rich world of flavours are yours to explore at Thai restaurants in Glasgow, so why not make that your next stop when you dine out in the city?
