It opened way back in 2009. Holding its place in Itaewon for 13 years now, this is Wang Thai. Its name translates to ‘Thai Palace,’ and it lives up to its name. Wang Thai is an officially recognized Thai restaurant by the Thai government. The interior is quite spacious, with rooms available for group reservations. The dish I anticipated the most, Tom Yum Goong, arrived. Simply put, it’s a spicy shrimp soup, but it can be a bit divisive due to its generous use of coriander and lemongrass. For people like me, it’s a dish that’s exciting and irresistible. Fragrant, hearty, spicy, and sweet all at once. It’s almost sad how the portion diminishes. You must also try their Chicken Green Curry. With its coconut milk base, it’s creamy, slightly sweet, and delicious. A feast for rice lovers.

The menu is incredibly diverse, so ordering multiple dishes is recommended. I’ll have to bring my friends here again. Itaewon boasts a variety of international restaurants and eateries beyond Wang Thai. It’s a great place to enjoy various cuisines like Korean, Chinese, and Western, as well as to explore unique and quirky shops for shopping enthusiasts. Keep an eye out for various cultural events like art exhibitions and performances; it’s worth knowing about them in advance and attending.
