Best Thai restaurants in every state

  • Best Thai restaurants in every state

    Whether you’re craving pad thai or something more adventurous — such as stir-fried alligator in a house-made chili paste — deciding on a truly delicious Thai restaurant can prove difficult since there are so many options these days. Cities have seen an influx in Thai restaurant openings during the past decade, making it harder to locate a genuinely good restaurant. The increase in restaurants is due to more Americans taking an interest in the cuisine in recent years. In the 1980s Thai restaurants made their dishes sweeter and more mild to fit the American palate, but Americans have been searching for more authentic options in recent years.

    If you’re among the people looking for something more authentic, we have you covered. Here at Stacker, we used Foursquare to analyze local ratings, check-ins, tips, and trends to curate the best Thai restaurants in each state. See what dishes are customer favorites and learn if you really should opt to go ‘Thai hot’ — this ultra-spicy option is only meant for the brave at some establishments. States are listed in alphabetical order; read on to find the best Thai food near you.
