    In my opinion pad see-ew doesn’t deserve that high of a score. It’s ok, but generally it’s a pile of gluey fried noodles.

    To each their own. It’s all subjective anyway.

    A decent khua gling moo is delicious, but hard to find. The ubiquitous kaprow is pretty good too, an easy and reliable lunch fallback, but all too often lacking in flavour because it has been made with too few basil leaves. An egg hard fried hard will disappoint too. Surprised not to see a green curry on the list.

    The actual site is fairly interesting - but you have to specifically search for the stir fry best dishes, as its not on the landing page.

    Mind you, this is the picture they have for "Phat kaphrao" (!)

    One of my favourites.

    Eat it about once every ten days.

    I like my noodles fat.

    My wife, oddly enough, makes a superb pad krapow. We love it so much we grow our own basil as it can be difficult to source here.

    Do you grow Thai basil, or holy basil?

    Thai basil..it grows like weeds when the seeds first sprout, but getting a mature plant here is fooking difficult.

    A pad krapow is indeed great, however a really good restaurant one isn't always guaranteed. Too often a small stir fry and too much rice, and a lack of vegetables/basil. You can usually guess the quality of what you're getting by the condition of the fried egg. So many Thai dishes can fall within the 'stir fry' category, even some of their curries. Panang curry is essentially a stir fry, and for me beats a pad krapow hands down.

    Why would you commit such heresy? There is nothing better than pad krapow and if the word "curry" is in the name, it means it's been cooked slower than a stir fry.

    List is bollocks

    pad Krapow is good, but its essentially Thai beans on toast equivalent, you have it when you can't think of anything else or you want something reliable/ difficult to fuck up

    Meh, nowhere near the Thai dishes, imho - having lived in both Thailand and Korea for ten years each, I'd take Thai food every day of the week.

    Of course, if you like it, Spliff, that's great - each to their own.

    I don't know about that, a good pad see-ew is really lovely, imho. Luckily for me, the wife makes a good one. She also sometimes sells food, orders in advance, only ten for lunchtime, and the pad see-ew is very popular.

    I love a green curry chicken, a penang curry and a massaman - yummy...
