By Chloe Duncan
Every time I visit New York, I will travel to Brooklyn specifically for Thai food. I am a serious thai foodie. Brooklyn is full of authentic cuisine and hidden gems, making it one of the best burrows for food exploration. These Thai restaurants will ignite a love for Thai food you never knew existed.
1. Hi Noodle
Straight off of the Brooklyn Queens expressway sits Hi Noodle, a delectable Thai restaurant in the heart of Brooklyn. Hi Noodle is an all-time favorite of mine, the atmosphere is relaxing and the restaurant has large open windows that let in the streets of Brooklyn. Their Pad Thai is some of the best in Brooklyn, donned with fresh veggies, crunchy peanuts, and your choice of protein. Hi Noodle’s stir-fried flat rice is to die for and their beef stew is warm and cozy, perfect for a chilly New York night. Pair any of these dishes with a fresh Mojito or a fresh whiskey sour, cozied up in one of the booths lining the walls, and enjoy your meal.
2. Thai Holic
Thai Holic takes a new world approach to old-world ideas, creating an atmosphere that allows for the eater to enjoy not only the food but the camaraderie around the table. Thai Holic has an ever-changing menu, adjusting the availability of meals based on the season and the natural ingredients that are at their disposal. This allows the restaurant to ensure that they are serving fresh, flavorful ingredients every time. Pair any of their meals with a selection from their wine bar and you have the perfect Thai meal.
3. Dannee Thai
Opened in 2016, Dannee Thai has become one of the best known Thai restaurants in Brooklyn. Offering fresh, authentic Thai cuisine, Dannee Thai is delicious and affordable. Offering lunch and dinner specials each night, Dannee Thai makes it easy to dine in and out. Pad Thai happens to be my favorite Thai dish, ever. However, at Dannee Thai I will order the massaman curry and crab rangoons every time. The ragroons are fresh and bright, while the curry is cozy and full of fiery flavor. Dannee Thai offers a warm atmosphere paired with fresh, authentic Thai food and a divine drink selection.

Taste their pad thai, the crispy vegetarian spring rolls, or the chicken coconut soup. They are all equally delicious.
