Best Thai Restaurants in Kuching

Written by Updated ago

Thai cuisine is considered one of the greatest food in the world. Of course, since the country is also a popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Being the next door neighbour to this great, never been colonised, power has given us some of their specialty into our soil. Thai food has always been a favourite in this country as we share a similar palate. Even though Kuching is technically not connected to the land of the Thai's, it is by no means the people of Kuching cannot enjoy what Thai cuisine has to offer. Here is a list of Thai restaurants in the heart of Sarawak.

    Engleham 31Pork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    From the outside, Engleham 31 doesn't seem like your average Thai restaurant as there are barely any Thai decorations hanged around. But once your order arrive at your table, whatever previous notions you might have about the restaurant would vanish. Both a Thai restaurant and a BBQ, their food selection covers various Thai cuisines from Tom Yum to Green Curry, Grilled Squid to Sizzling Oyster Omelette, the choices would keep you wondering what to get. One of the worthy dishes is the Steam Fish with Lime, a healthy, flavourful option if you come in a group. Great food plus great ambience, there is no better way to spend some quality time with loved ones. 

    Tips

    Parking can be quite a hassle, complete with double (triple) parking. Save yourself the trouble and park further away.

    Things to expect

    An unassuming environment that serves good Thai foods.

    You can never go wrong with Pandan Chicken or the Mango Sticky Rice.

    Absolute TribalPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Absolute Tribal is not like your average Thai restaurant. Actually, it's not completely a Thai restaurant. Catering to as many flavours as possible, Absolute Tribal serves a fusion of Thai, Chinese and Dayak cuisines. The name comes from the fact that the restaurant is housed in an old colonial building that is also part mini museum. Dishes here ranges from the usual Thai fair like the Spicy Tom Yam to various Thai salads but also some of those local dishes like the Sarawak Laksa and Chinese-inspired Salmon Fried RIce. There are so many things offered at Absolute Tribal that there is never a dull moment. 

    Tips

    Not just a restaurant but also a place where one can educate oneself on Sarawakian history.

    Things to expect

    Service and price may be higher compared to the usual Kuching fair.

    Best with

    The Salmon Fried Rice is getting rave reviews for their creative combination.

    Pai Thai TomyamPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21Alco free 9fb1f2c65edc2c1eaf4e8b24402d108dd33cc2bc71f0fb0022a54c3c390a66c8

    Thai restaurants sometimes are not what they seem. Thai cuisine has such influence in our culture that it became a part of said culture especially in our foods. Pai Thai Tomyam is not the full on Thai restaurant you would expect. The establishment is more similar to what Peninsular's many Thai style, but Malay, restaurants. Which is why, while you get to see the usual like Tom Yam, other dishes would usually consists of the likes of Tri-flavour Fish or Spicy Chicken Stir-fry. Even so, this by all means still maintains its authenticity, maybe not close to the original but more with a slight Malaysian twist to it. 

    Tips

    The price is slightly higher than normal but the food quality compliments the price.

    Things to expect

    The Clear Tomyam is still very much full of Thai flavours.

    Best with

    Butter Chicken, or any butter stir-fry really, almost never go wrong.
