Time Out Says
It’s a simple set up – tables, chairs, narrow passageway and some Thai artwork on painted walls on either side. The servers are very polite, slightly contrary to most of the other smaller Thai restaurants in Doha.
The menu has all the crowd favourites from glass noodles and pad thai to the papaya salad. We decide to start with the crispy shrimp rolls. These taste as good as it gets and the steamed dim sum, althought slightly bland, does not disappoint.
The massaman beef curry is an excellent choice for main course – it’s creamy, spicy and very authentic. The tender beef chunks almost melt in your mouth and the peanuts in the gravy add a delightful crunch. The seafood noodles that we order next really pack on the heat (keep water and tissues ready), despite us requesting the servers to tone it down.
The dessert menu has coconut ice cream and Thai sticky rice with mango, both of which we recommend, especially after all that spice.
Khao San also does authentic Thai milk tea, besides a few other local beverages.
This little spot is perfect for a comforting weeknight dinner and the prices will really surprise you (in a good way, of course).
