28. Restaurant Review: Baan Kirao

For the real taste of Thailand, Baan Kirao is the only choice in Shimokitazawa. Everybody who works here is Thai, and their banter (in addition to neon, bamboo, and variety of Thai posters)create an atmosphere that takes you straight back to that beach side hut in Phuket.
Lunch sets are very inexpensive, between 500 and 800 yen each (dessert included). Add an alcoholic drink for 200 yen, a non-alcoholic one for 100 yen.

The regular menu has all the Thai favorites: Tom Yum Kun, Pad Thai,... the list goes on and on. Everything I've ever ordered was fantastic, and was served on those oval plastic plates that all real Thai restaurants use.
