From Mexican to Italian and Everything in Between: These are the must-try eateries in Thailand you can get delivered by GrabFood


It’s no secret that Thailand is a culinary paradise. The country has a delicious food scene with something for everyone. And nowadays, thanks to the modern-day wonders that are food delivery apps, different cuisines from around the world are so easy to get ahold of in Thailand, with easy, breezy, speedy delivery straight to your doorstep (or lobby or reception desk or beachside bungalow or wherever you’re staying, if you’re just passing through the Land of Smiles!). 

Whether you’re in the mood for some comforting Italian pasta, fresh and delicious sushi from Japan, spicy burritos from Mexico, or some good ol’ fashioned home-cooked Thai food, you can satiate just about any craving with help from the GrabFood app – which happened to be hailed as Thailand’s most popular food ordering app in 2022, as surveyed by Kantar, Marketeer, and BrandAge.

And as popular as it’s been, GrabFood just got even better — the new app allows for both Thai and English menus, even in cities outside of Bangkok where English menus are harder to find. All you have to do is tap “Settings” in your Grab app, hit “Language & input,” select “English,” then BOOM, you’re ready to get the food of your choice in a few taps of a finger. If you’re using a web-based browser, just go to the top right-hand corner and click the language box to select English. 

But what to order? Because, there’s a sea of different restos on there, you’re spoilt for choice (the best kind of “problem” to have in our humble opinions!). So, to help you cut down the hours of scrolling through all the appetizing yet many, many choices, we’ve rounded up a list of highly-rated restaurant recommendations loved by Thais, expats, and tourists alike, across Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Chonburi, and Pattaya. Go ahead, order first, thank us later. 

Oh, and hot tip: use the code GRABNOW to get free delivery* – valid for a value of up to THB30 and a minimum spend of THB200 (terms and conditions apply, valid for selected users only). 


As the bustling capital of Thailand, Bangkok boasts an incredible variety of restaurants that can take your taste buds on a global adventure. But first, coffee – get your caffeine fix at Roots, a Thai cafe and microroastery with 10 locations across the Big Mango. Searching for noods (the foodie fave of course!)? Get ‘em steaming hot at Meet Mala Noodles and slurp up the Old Altar Pickled Beef Ramen or the Mala Hotpot Pork Set. For Mexican, look no further than Bowlito for fresh and flavorful rice bowls or order the Mexi Burger Crunch for something crispy. How about some doner for a late night bite? Berlin’s Doner Kebab is meat lover’s heaven. Italian on your mind? Find pizza cooked in wood-fired Neapolitan-style ovens that’ll transport you straight to Naples from the award-winning Italian restaurant, Peppina. And for mango sticky rice, you gotta try Maevaree if you’re in the mood for one of Thailand’s most loved dishes. 


Island hoppers, just because you’re off the mainland doesn’t mean you’re any less overloaded with possibilities. For Thai favorites, order the Phad Kra Pao (spicy fried chicken with Thai basil, rice, omelet) or the Som Tum (Thai papaya salad) from Thai Food by Tookky. Healthy-food seekers, FitGeeks is your spot, they’ve got quite the clean eats like a stacked superfood buffet, smoothie bowls, and even plant-based gelato! As for barbecue – there’s just something about craving grilled food when you’re by the beach – check out Ali’s BBQ, and sink your teeth into some BBQ pork skewers, chicken wings, or even Indian or Iranian favorites like Iranian lamb shank and chicken biryani. And hey, they even have McDonald’s if you’ve got the late night munchies. 

Chiang Mai

If you find yourself up in the northern country, fret not, GrabFood’s coverage zone extends there too! Veg-lovers, try Vegan Meals for well, your vegan meals! Choose from fried rice, vegan bowls, pastas, pita wraps, and salads galore. Order from El Diablo’s Burritos for Mexican, and Lanzhou Laiman for some top-rated noodles. Keep things local at Lucky Tree Kafe – try the Massaman chicken curry with rice, creamy Tom Yum, and Pad See Ew (stir-fried soy sauce noodles). Tuck into the loaded waffles and juicy burgers at Maya’s Burger Queen Cafe & Breakfast for heartier meals. And don’t sleep on Goodsouls Kitchen for just about anything your tastebuds desire in plant-based form, from the northern specialty of Khao Soi (coconut curry noodle soup) to pizza to meat-free burgers. 


Setting out east to Chonburi for the province’s famous beaches and nightlife? Well if you want fast and easy (especially after hitting the bars), McDonald’s, KFC, and Subway are all available on GrabFood. In an indulgent mood? Get the classic pizza and cheesy pizza puffs from The Pizza Company. Japanese food on your mind? You’ll want to get the ramen from Tsukemen Jo, the katsu curry from CoCo Ichibanya, or the Gyudon (Japanese beef rice bowls) from Sukiya. Bubble tea babes, best you hit up Hop Chaf for yummy tapioca pearl goodness. 


If you find yourself in the Gulf Coast nightlife hub of Pattaya, get hyped because there are so many restaurants to pick from on GrabFood – like your palate can traverse the globe with Armenian food from Armenia Restaurant, Indian food from My KAHNA Indian Food, Lebanese from Grillicious by Beirut, and American Bar & Grill to stuff yourself silly with classics hailing from the USA. And let’s not forget fresh, mouthwatering sushi from Dodo Sushi and Roll – they’ve got a super comprehensive menu of sashimi, nigiri, and special rolls! Need a heavy breakfast after a night of reveling? You can order English brekkies from Hungry Hippo for a rib-sticking meal. Fancy food off the grill? Look no further than Piri Piri for flame grilled chicken sets, burgers, steak, burgers, steak, and pasta.
