Khot Thai restaurant—
for true Thai flavour in the heart of Paddington

Welcome to Khot Thai — a casual dining venue in the heart of Paddington. We deliver authentic Thai cuisine, inspired by the local markets and foodhalls from all regions of Thailand - south, central, north and north-east.

We combine a comprehensive selection of fresh ingredients, herbs and spices to serve uniquely Thai dishes in our own market-style eatery...take a couple of steps inside and you feel like you're really there.

We are mindful of your dietary needs and offer a constantly growing menu of guaranteed gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian dishes and we can cater for those with nut and seafood allergies too.

In fact, since every meal is cooked freshly to order, we can satisy almost any dietary need upon request, your host, Anong, is happy to assist you.

At Khot Thai, we skillfully blend traditional Thai flavours and ingredients to create a menu that sings with the freshness of food markets.

Here, you’ll find classic Thai dishes along with regional dishes and specialties from all parts of Thailand, from Issan-style green papaya salad (Som Tum) to mussamun curries of the southern coast.

We also offer a wide range of guaranteed gluten-free and vegan dishes, and in future these will become the standard offering wherever possible.

"Rustic" more than "Royal" is how describe our venue, yet with the clear impression that we are ALL about the food and flavour... the walls adorned with photos of the diversity in Thai food markets and even a life-size wall mural that invites you to take a selfie in front... a great way to remember your Thai dining adventure. Adorned throughout with fresh flowers and planter-box party dividers, adds to the ambience.

Now fully licensed, from December 1, 2017 we also offer a unique choice of quality sake and a limited wine and beer selection that complements our Thai flavours. You're still welcome to bring your favourite red and white wines ($4 corkage per consumer) but we feel our range will pleasingly satisfy.
