The Top 100 Phoenix Restaurants of 2024

Glai Baan

Glai Baan
Jacob Tyler Dunn
This central Phoenix restaurant — the name translates to "far from home" — specializes in Thai street food and regional northeastern Thailand cooking. Chef and co-owner Pornsupak "Cat" Bunnag has roots in Bangkok and the Isan region of Thailand. That heritage is reflected in Glai Baan's tight menu of small plates, noodles and street food favorites. We recommend the kao soi, a northern Thai-style chicken curry dish, kanom jeeb (steamed pork dumplings), and Silom Road Moo ping pork skewers. And you can't tell anyone you dined at Glai Baan without trying the larb moo salad or the son-in-law eggs — a Thai street food delicacy. Pro tip: Parking is tough along this stretch of Osborn Road, so it may be wise to Lyft. Bonus: That'll allow you to try another one of Glai Baan's impressive cocktails. Reservations are strongly recommended for parties of two or more. Patio seating is available. ($$$)
