  • We have been to this small, friendly restaurant lots of times and have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and always hot and fresh. The meat and seafood are excellent. We love the spicy dishes that feature in the 2 courses for £10 weekend lunch. Our favourites include the chili oil and beef and the spicy noodles. Cashew nuts with chicken and pad thai are also great. Service is efficient and friendly. We shall definitely go back and would highly recommend it to others to try.

  • Highly recommend, try the scallops- they are awesome. All of the wait staff very friendly and helpful, food served quickly and everything was delicious. I really couldn’t complain about a thing! Apart from maybe eating so much that we didn’t have room to try the ice cream :)
    We paid 38 quid for one starter, a salad, and 2 mains (the pad thai and the red curry with monk fish- both delicious, you’re missing out if you don’t try the red curry!).

  • We have visited Khao San Road several times and I have to say I rate it as the best place in York to eat Thai. I have tried most of the dishes on the menu, all of which were excellent but my favourite is still the grilled pork shoulder called Moo Yang. If you can take advantage of the 2 courses for £10 you will not be disappointed. They do a takeaway service, I just wish I lived closer.

  • My wife and I have been here 3 times since it opened and cant fault it at all. The food is fantastic. We have a friend who lives in Thailand and has also eaten here…he rates the food as good as it gets! The staff are amazingly friendly, but not overpowering.
    I type this having just eaten there as my 35th birthday meal :-) I have lived in York for 9 years and I can honestly say that this is the best meal I have had (if you’re interested, The Indian Lounge is in 2nd place!)
    PLEASE, if you come to York, you must eat here (they do a set menu lunch too!). As the other reviewer says, a restaurant here should do something different to success, however, I feel that Khao San Rd does the simple things really well, and I really hope they succeed :-)


  • My husband & I visited Khao San on NYE after booking late on the same day.
    The restaurant was bustling with a good, lively atmosphere. The staff were extremely polite & could not do enough to accommodate any request. The food was absolutely delicious & reasonably priced. Service was quick but not rushed. Unfortunately we had to leave earlier than planned (child care issue) & the staff were only too happy to put our remaining meal in a takeaway carton & let us settle the bill quickly.
    We will definitely be returning again hopefully in the near future. Excellent all round experience.

  • We ate here early one Saturday evening but it was still rather busy, I would recommend that you book if wanting to eat here at peak times. I had the red thai curry, which was the best thai meal I’ve ever had, creamy with a slight kick at the end. My mum had grilled pork shoulder which came with a very hot dip! The food was absolutely brilliant though and I would definitely recommend to eat here at either lunch or an evening if visiting York.

  • One of the best Thai restaurants that I have ever been to. We had a starters and mains and both were fantastic – food tasted very fresh i.e. it hadn’t been stood on a hot plate for hours on end. Good bottle of Red too. Service was very good despite how busy it was, served very quickly.

  • We’ve been to Khao San a couple of times with fiends and have never been disappointed! The food is good value and really tasty and the service is great. A great little hidden gem just out of the city centre – would definitely recommend!

  • We are local and have tried them all but this is now our regular Thai. The pork and prawn on seaweed starter remains my favourite

  • We have eaten here several times and the quality and taste of the food is excellent, the interior is not amazing but the food makes up for it.

  • The staff were really friendly, felt welcome as soon as we came in, food was delicious. Really liked the decor, like a bistro. Good value. Our table was lovely- perfect for a date- candlelit and with a rose. Very excited to hear they do take away!

  • This is a great restaurant. It`s really busy so you should pre-book a table to avoid getting disappointed. The food is amazing. I`n not the biggest fan of Asian food, but I love the food here. The service is great too.

  • Popped in here for lunch and had the set price meal. Two courses for £10 (£2 extra if you want mixed seafood), Pad Thai was superb (as was the rest to be fair). Great authentic Thai food at a really reasonable price.

  • I had a tofu Pad Thai, which was surprisingly packed with flavour. We also opted for a “surprise” Bailey’s cocktail for afters and it was delicious. The service was good too.
