Leeds isn't short of great places to eat and there's a huge range of styles on offer. Fancy something Italian like a pizza or patsa dish? Grazzi! A burger to sink your teeth into? There's plenty to relish (get it?). Something vegetarian? Very good! Sometimes though, only the taste of Thai will do. Those aromatic spices, the ginger, the lemongrass, the chilli and garlic all combining to create an exquisite cuisine. Here are some tremendous Leeds Thais to try.

Chaophraya

4 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Thai

Named after Bangkok’s river, it serves authentic Thai cuisine in an opulent setting, has a private dining room with sunken seating and a cocktail lounge, where you relax over a Thai-inspired martini.

Zaap Thai Street Food

Restaurants Thai

An antidote to the more formal Thai restaurant, with their fondness for gilt and extravagant ornamental pieces, this boisterous venue in one of Leeds’ lovely Victorian arcades, favours neon signs, an open kitchen and booths fashioned from tuk-tuks.

My Thai

Restaurants Thai

Leeds folk can’t get enough of this cosy Thai shack in the increasingly smart Merrion Centre. If you like home cooking and decent portions, this is the place to head for.

Thai Sabai

4 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Thai

Thai Sabai in Headingley is teeny-tiny even compared to nearby rivals Sukhothai and Salvo's, but what it lacks in grandeur and contemporary décor it absolutely makes up for with its homely, moreish and imaginative Thai menu.

Thai Aroy Dee

Restaurants Thai

It shut down recently to the consternation of its many loyal fans but Thai Aroy Dee is now back in business a few doors farther up Vicar Lane and as popular as ever.

BangWok

Restaurants Thai

Serving lunch to hungry hordes of office workers is no mean feat but founder and chef Dong carries it off with ease. His motto is 'proper Thai, proper fast'.

Sukhothai

5 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Thai

This eatery is a great option for mid-priced takeaway food for a treat to enjoy at home, but it’s always better to sit down and tuck into food fresh from the kitchen if you have the time. Opulent and authentic, without being chintzy or dated.

Siam Oriental

Restaurants Thai

Abandoning the heavy duty crimson decor beloved of some of its peers, the Siam, housed in Chapel Allerton’s old police station, has gone for a bright, airy look without compromising on the authenticity of the food.

Line Thai Oriental

Restaurants Thai

It used to be popular when it was the Thai Cottage and doesn’t disappoint in its new incarnation as Line Thai, located among the wine bars and gastro pubs on elegant Great George Street.

Jino’s Thai Cafe

Restaurants Thai

This homely cafe has been enticing Headingley’s students with its simple, delicious Thai street food since 2003. There’s no alcohol licence but you can bring your own and, if the sun happens to be shining, sit and watch the world go by on the tables outside.
