Shanghai is closer to Thailand than you might think. Its only a short flight or a long train ride away and, as a result, Thai influences and food have made their way up into China's most populated city.
Baan Thai and La Na Thai are traditional, authentic Thai eateries where you'll be wowed by the simple noodle, fish and vegetable dishes. Come for the food and stay because you're literally too gorged to walk out of the restaurant.
Irene's Thai and Kevin's Thai are authentic Thai restaurants that are simple, elegant and offer a first class menu at an affordable price. If you find yourself in China craving Thai food, these are the first places you'll want to go to fill your cravings.
For high class Thai and the perfect place for a romantic date, head to Simply Thai, where the decor and atmosphere will do all the hard work for you. Simple dishes done expertly are on offer here while the mood and music make this a place you'll want to stay hour on hour, relaxing and enjoying yourself the way they do in the Land of Smiles. Althernatively, Thaitanium is a fun, more laid back place for a romantic date where perhaps wowing her the old fashioned way with candles, charm and music isn't going to cut it.
Other South-East Asian cuisines on offer in Shanghai include delicious Vietnamese at the San Francisco Vietnamese Restaurant, and general Thai-Vietnamese food at Coconut Paradise. You'll also find South-East Asian influences at Element Fresh and Atrium Cafe.
