Thanks to most of the country having visited Thailand and raved about their culinary creations, Thai food has become really popular in Dublin in recent years. Here are my Top 3 to try.
Diep Noodle Bar Ranelagh or Diep at Home Ranelagh/Blackrock or Drumcondra
A fond favourite of mine and my flatmates, the restaurant is lovely, atmospheric with great cocktails and the take-away is really good and very fresh. Sorts out a hangover very nicely! Expect to pay about €12-15 for a dish here. I can recommend, Phad Thai, Singapore Noodles or any of the curries. http://www.diep.net
Kanum, Mespil Rd or Orwell Rd.
A relative new-comer and cornering the lunch-time market is Kanum. The price is very reasonable, a lunch deal with a drink for less than €10. They also do take-away, very tasty. Try it and see! http://www.kanum.ie
Saba, Clarendon St.
Saba is the most up-market version of these three. I really like the interior design of the place and the food is excellent but it can be quite loud in there. I recommend the Duck Hoisin Pancakes to start, they’re the best I’ve had. http://www.sabadublin.com
