Best Thai Restaurants in Canberra


Finding  fresh, tasty and cheap Thai when cravings (or group dinners) arise is a serious aspect of modern life. Here are our picks for the best Thai restaurants in Canberra.


  1. Morks Restaurant

    Kingston, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Morks has a list of accolades longer than the road from Florey to the Kingston Foreshore, where it now resides after six years in Florey Shops. It’s been rated best restaurant in Canberra , listed in the top 500 restaurants in Australia by the Australian Financial Review. Siblings Mork and Benn Ratanakosol, who lead the kitchen and front-of-house respectively, have created a contemporary restaurant with cutting-edge dishes that still give a discernible nod to their heritage.

  2. Joe's Thai Food

    Wanniassa, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Joe’s Thai brings zingy Asian flavours to the Wanniassa shops and the locals are loving it - if the restaurant’s open, the small dining area is packed. The noodles here are a winner; soft and slippery, they really bring a great texture to your favourite soups and stir fries.

  3. Rice Tapas Bar & Restaurant

    Canberra CBD, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    We love restaurants that can only be found if you know where to look, so of course we really like Rice Tapas Bar and Restaurant, because the only hint that you’re about to have a great meal is a flight of stairs leading up and away from a Civic street. Don’t be fooled by the “tapas” reference in the name - there’s nothing Spanish about this place, and you’re better off going for the mains than the small plates on offer. The huge menu of Thai dishes are easy on the back pocket. Go to dishes: Jim’s sweet pork belly or any of the curries tipped for takeaway.

  4. SukoThai

    Yarralumla, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Sukothai’s perennially packed dining room is its own best advertisement; the fact that’s it’s in a quiet part of Midland, at the end of a dodgy-looking arcade in Yarralumala Shops seems to have no bearing on its popularity. The menu spans Thai, Burmese and Indian dishes, and all pack a punch when it comes to heat and flavour.

  5. Chong Co Thai Kingston Foreshore

    Kingston, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    Good food is always enhanced by a great view and Chong Co ticks both those boxes. The Thai chain restaurant has a relatively new addition in the upmarket dining precinct at the edge of Lake Burley Griffin. We love the contemporary dining room, the fresh menu and the great selection of wines on offer.

  6. Baitong

    Weston Creek, Canberra, Australian Capital Territory

    The search for tasty, authentic Lao dishes ends in Weston Creek with Baitong Lao and Thai Cuisine. If you haven’t tried Lao cuisine, this is the place to do it when you’re craving Thai but feeling a little more adventurous than your go-to curry. Try the soft shell crab - its a Lao specialty.
