“In a tiny way, I almost feel responsible. I’m the one who sent him to Thailand in search of low-cost whistles, filled his head with pseudoerotic tales of my own Opium excursions… plus, I gave him some phone numbers of places he could score near the hotel.”

-J. Peterman, Seinfeld [1998]

Every city needs a go-to Thai restaurant, and Salt Lake City is blessed with amazing Thai food sprinkled all around the Valley to satisfy that need. We are talking about the Best Thai food in Salt Lake City. Thai food where you have to finish your plate even if you’re already filled up. Thai food so spicy that even a conservative pick of 1.5 out of 10 on their spicy scale will make you sweat through your jacket. Shout out to Tea Rose Diner who politely suggests you order no higher than a 3 on your first visit. There is no bigger scourge on this earth than “spicy” food catered to people who don’t like spicy food. I want to feel the pores on my scalp gasping for relief as I dig into my drunken noodles, pad thai, or stir fry. Nothing less.

Here are the restaurants with the Best Thai Food in Salt Lake City. Didn’t see your favorite SLC Thai restaurant? Tell us where we need to go next in the comments below!
