Who here loves thai food like me? I recently tried out 26 Thai Kitchen & Bar in Lindbergh (right next to the Marta station) and ordered a variety of dishes that I’ve reviewed below! The name of the restaurant comes from the age that the owner was when she opened the spot! All the decorations are also from Thailand and they have the largest bar in a thai restaurant in Atlanta! ALSO if you go to 26 Thai before 5/31 and mention my blog, you get a FREE Thai Iced Tea! Here’s what I tried and what I thought of everything!
Thai Iced Tea– $4- I love thai iced tea and this one was so great!! Also look at this presentation! *heart eyes* (This is what you’d get for free if you mention my blog when you go!)
Cocorita (left)- This drink is a coconut margarita and tasted nice and tropical! Perfect for spring & summer!
Ginger Martini (middle)-$12- This drink was refreshing with the perfect amount of ginger!
Bees Knees (right)- $9- This was made with gin, yuzu (Japanese Citrus), organic honey, a hint of peach and it was delicious!
26 Thai Platter– $26- Includes 4 small plates that you choose with servings for four people- My friends and I picked spring rolls, chicken satay, calamari, and roti with curry for our platter! Everything on here was so yummy and perfectly crunchy! My favorite was the chicken satay!
Crispy Chicken Kao-Soi– $13- Northern-Style Curry dish made with yellow curry, crispy chicken, egg noodles, pickled mustard, shallots, cucumbers, bean sprouts, peanuts, crispy noodles, and garlic chili paste- This was my favorite thing I tried and will definitely be back for this dish!! So flavorful!
Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs– $19- Made with delicate beef short ribs, green curry, green beans, eggplant, bell peppers, rice vermicelli noodles. I wasn’t a big fan of the eggplant in this dish (just personal preference due to texture) but the beef in this dish was so tender! The staff said that it was cooked for 5 hours and you can definitely tell this is a quality dish!
Shrimp Pad Thai– $15- Made with rice noodles, eggs, scallions, crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, lime, and shrimp- I enjoyed this combo of ingredients and the quality of the shrimp! All went great with some lime juice over it.
Pineapple Boat– $16- Made with chicken, fresh pineapple, cashew nuts, mushrooms, celery, side of fried rice, served in pineapple shell- Look at this presentation-your friends will definitely be jealous. I really enjoyed this dish because of the variety of ingredients and because the stir fry was cooked in an awesome chili sauce!
Ice cream trio– These scoops were unique and great (clockwise: coffee, coconut + taro, and thai tea)! My favorite was the coffee flavor! I was also happily surprised by liking the coconut flavor since I usually don’t like coconut but the taro really balanced it out!
Thai Coffee Creme Brulee– This dessert was a more liquid-y than I like my creme brulees but the flavor was still awesome! Really enjoyed the crunchy outside too.
Mango & Sticky Rice Cocktail– $12- Made with Kai coconut & Pandan rice liquor, mango puree, and coconut milk- This is the cocktail version of a traditional thai dessert (mango sticky rice) and was so good!. I was pleasantly surprised by how balanced and tasty this was and that it also had little fruit bubbles in the bottom! If you want actual mango sticky rice, the restaurant now serves that as well!
26 Thai has a main dining space but also has an upstairs which you can rent for a large private party. If you prefer to be outside, you can also dine on their patio during nicer weather! If you don’t want to physically come to the restaurant but still want the food, you can order online through UberEats, Doordash, or Eat24!
I hope you all decide to try out 26 Thai! I really enjoyed everything I tried + dining here and I will be back!
