Pad Thai is arguably the most well-known dish in Thai cuisine (and for good reasons), but there are several other dishes you should try.

If you're a fan of pad thai, try pad see ew. It's also a popular fried noodle dish in Thailand. It's wide rice noodles with vegetables and meat, seasoned with soy sauce.

Thai Fried Rice is a step up from your normal fried rice. It's filled with vegetables and meat, but the chilies and garlic give it an unexpected kick.

If you're feeling a little brave, try the green curry.
