Best Thai

Smiling Elephant

Writers' Choice

This isn’t the first time Sam Kopsombut’s fabulous Eighth Avenue restaurant has earned this title, and it likely won’t be the last. In addition to being well-seasoned and delicious, Smiling Elephant’s dishes are always exceptionally fresh and clean-tasting to boot. Highlights include khao kai ra-bert (minced pork, garlic, black pepper and fried egg on rice), pad kee mao (green-bean noodles with kaffir lime leaves, veggies, egg and choice of meat) and the restaurant’s signature pad thai, hands-down the best we’ve ever had.
