If you’re a Thai food lover, you’ve got to check out the trio of amazing Thai restaurants all under one roof: Çok Çok Thai, Az Çok Thai, and Çok Çok Pera.

These spots have earned the prestigious Thai Select Award given by the Royal Thai Government, which is a reward system that is managed with great care and given after long examinations. A true testament to their authentic flavors.

My personal favorite, Az Çok Thai, is located in Çukurcuma on the coziest street that offers an elegant street food vibe with an open kitchen. The brick walls, a Buddha statue by the window, and the loft floor set the stage for a delightful meal. The friendly English-speaking staff contributes to the warm atmosphere.

At Az Çok Thai, the dishes are inspired by the street food versions of the main dishes, and the menu covers all the Thai classics. The food is simply delicious. From perfectly cooked Pad Thai to Gang Ped Pak, each dish is a winner. Plus, compared to sister restaurants, prices are quite fair. Most notably, the complimentary hot tea is a lovely touch, infusing your visit with Asian hospitality and putting a smile on your face.

Just a heads up, the place fills up fast, so booking ahead is a smart move for an unforgettable Thai feast. Trust me, it’s a gem worth visiting.

By the way, don’t forget to explore the area – Çukurcuma. Maybe even spoil yourself with a Hamam experience.

Happy travels and happy eating! 🙂
