We tried the BIG Tiger prawn Pad Thai and Pad Thai with crab meat. (The orange juice- thou pricey, is definitely worth trying too) .
The Pad Thai noodles were full of flavour (with a hint of that "wok hei-ness") and the prawns were fresh and juicy!
.
This restaurant totally deserved it's mention in the 2018 Michelin Guide, as the staff were super attentive and polite, food was awesome, and the place was relatively clean and comfortable.

I decided to try Michelin star awarded Thipsamai* (2nd pic) and Lueng Pha Pad Thai (1st pic). The two shops were beside each other but the former has an insane long queue if you want to dine in.

Conclusion: I love Thipsamai's version better. Both are sweeter version with chewy phad thai noodles. But Thipsamai's noodle is softer and broader in width. The omelette wrap is thinner and much silky in texture as compared to Lueng Pha's too.

According to the locals, standard has fell short at Thipsamai. Nevertheless, the shop is still very popular among tourists and locals.

Special Omelette: 90 baht at both places. Additional 10 baht/adult to dine in at Thipsamai.

Thipsamai: ❤❤❤❤❤
Lueng pha: ❤❤❤❤

Here at Thip Samai, where is always mentioned at the best Pad Thai in Bangkok, you can always see huge crowds queuing at the shopfront even before it open at 5pm. The restaurant opened in 1966 in the heart of old Bangkok, serving varieties of Pad Thai dishes includes the Pad Thai with fried egg, Pad Thai wrapped in egg crepe, vegetarian Pad Thai or you can upgrade your plate to Supreme Pad Thai which comes with bigger prawns. Each dish was cooked to order.

My mom and I tried the Supreme Pad Thai wrapped in egg crepe and regular Supreme Pad Thai, there weren't much differences in tastes but we both preferred the one wrapped with a perfectly-cooked thin crepe. -
Besides the legendary pad Thai, Thip Samai is also famous for its fresh orange juice which was one of the best I've had.

Real juice with whole orange inside man. You can taste it. #tingzieeats #burpple #tingzietravels

Fast forward a few years later; back in BKK, they’ve completely revamped the place to an air conditioned diner where we sat inside, ushered by a “doorman” and the Pad Thai is still as good 😍 •

Look at how the egg wraps itself so delicately around the noodle. Can’t get no authentic Pad Thai like this over here, nothing comes close 📍 Bangkok #highlyRAEted •
