Radh Nah

Our first traditional Thai meal for you to try is Radh Nah. This is one of the most popular Thai dishes ordered by locals in Thailand, and it’s easy to see why.

The Radh Nah consists of pan-fried wide rice noodles in a delicious soybean gravy sauce. 

Using only the freshest ingredients, at Thai Ginger our Radh Nah is made with two types of broccoli and your choice of meat can also be added for those looking to add some extra protein. If you want to eat like the Thai, Radh Nah is the way to go!

Panang Curry

The Panang curry is a favorite for many who love Thai cuisine! It is one of many Thai curry dishes that incorporate coconut milk in the recipe.

It combines chili paste, coconut milk, and different spices, along with chicken, beef, or vegetable to create a sumptuous dish. It originates in southern Thailand and is often served with Thai jasmine white or brown rice.

Although they share the wonderful red color, the Panang curry is typically sweeter and less spicy than the famous Red Thai Curry. It’s a great option for those who prefer a milder heat in their Thai food.

Phad Talay

Next up on our list of the best traditional Thai food dishes is the Phad Talay. Everyone has heard of the Phad Thai, but the Phad Talay is one of our signature dishes at Thai Ginger.

Seafood including mussels, calamari, scallops, and prawns are stir fried with vegetables and our classic Thai chili sauce. Served with white or brown rice, this dish is gluten-free so it’s a great choice for those with celiac.

Gai Yahng

The last of our traditional Thai dishes you need to try is Gai Yahng. The Gai Yahng forms part of our delicious barbecue menu at Thai Ginger.

Gai Yahng is chicken marinated in a tasty turmeric, curry powder and fresh garlic. It is served with a sweet chili dipping sauce and sticky white rice.

This grilled chicken dish is found throughout Thailand and is one of the most popular traditional dishes. The marinating spices can change from town to town across the country, but our version with turmeric and ginger originates in southern Thailand.
