  • Mon-Sat 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
  • Lunch, Dinner
Pailin has been run by a Northern Thai family for a couple decades and serves some amazing Northern Thai dishes. Wildly good spiced larb, funky Northern versions of the popular som tum papaya salad, another great curry noodle served on the street called kanom jeen, a terrific take on a Southeast Asian soup called kway chap. Pailin’s rendition of khao soi was a wonderful discovery, reminiscent, with a few minor issues, of what you would find in Chiang Mai: just spicy enough, not too sweet, neither too thin nor too thick, accompanied by a small plate of pickled mustard, raw shallot and lime.
