Places to score top pad Thai in Edmonton

Pad Thai: It’s comforting, hearty and familiar – but exotic enough to excite our palate. These Edmonton restaurants serve up pad Thai that will take your taste buds to Thailand.

Bua Thai Restaurant

10049 113 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 1N9

The pad Thai goes by a slightly different name here, but it is the pad Thai you know and love. You can go vegetarian with the Phat Thai Jai or go all out with the Phat Thai dish, which has pork and shrimp (genius!), not to mention the traditional egg, bean curds and bean sprouts. You can’t go wrong with either option – we all know fried stick stick noodles are the key to a kick ass pad Thai.

Boualouang Laos & Thai

10569 97 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5H 2L4

If you like tofu, go for this very traditional pad Thai. If not, tell them to axe the tofu and throw in some delish chicken instead. The base of the pad Thai – the fried rice noodles, green onions, peanuts, carrots and bean sprouts will remain intact. This cozy Thai restaurant is located smack dab in the middle of Chinatown, and never disappoints me. They only accept cash, so come prepared.

Oodle Noodle Box

10803 82 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 2B2

Who knew you could have damn tasty pad Thai in under five minutes? Oodle Noodle takes everyone’s dreams and makes them come true. Their pad Thai comes out fast and piping hot, with supple chicken and soft rice noodles. It may technically be fast food but it’s never greasy. Plus, you get to watch the cooks work the wok right in front of you, so you know your pad Thai is fresh.

Viphalay Laos & Thai Restaurant

10523 99 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5K 0E7

This pad Thai is chockfull of protein, with shrimp, chicken, egg and tofu, not to mention the perfectly cooked rice noodles. Throw in a handful of bean sprouts and a squirt of fresh lime juice and you’re set. Pad Thai heaven is achievable. Their tamarind sauce is delectable, so let your taste buds drown in it.

Syphay Thai & Lao Cuisine

9441 Jasper Ave Nw, Edmonton, AB T5H 3T8

The Sayaphet family prides themselves on their pad Thai, which they have been dishing out to Edmontonians since 2004. You’ll detect hints of cilantro, carrots and chives in your big plate of noodle-y deliciousness. The chili sauce gives a bit of a kick but it’s tempered by the peanuts sprinkled on top. It comes with egg and you can add chicken and/or shrimp.

Mini Mango MAS Ltd

1056 91 St Sw, Edmonton, AB T6X 0P2

Chicken and prawns take the main stage in this pad Thai. It’s served up quick in a cafeteria style restaurant with some seating. It’s one of the few Thai places on the south side of Edmonton, and it is always dependable. They are willing to substitute crispy tofu for the chicken and prawns in order to make this dish vegetarian.
