“Get a falafel instead.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Having been an expat for the last decade or so, I, however, regularly return to Sweden. Cannot help but notice how the Thai cuisine has gone the same way as the Chinese. Increased competition, popularity and price pressure, has changed Thai food in Sweden. It started out fresh, with genuine flavors, some complexity, and ok ingredients. Krua Thai is a place I've known for many,many years, but that I haven't visited for some time. It used to be pretty good, and a popular lunch place. Back in Malmo, I went for a Sunday lunch a la carte. The latter, I thought, would mean a higher quality meal.
Red curry with chicken, supposedly hot. A dish I normally enjoy, and prepare very well myself. A benign summary would be 'bland'. Made me think of Thai fast food, in the wrong way. You know, styrofoam box w compartments, obviously canned ingredients, and only for the very hungry on the go.
Cook it yourself, with 'cheat' ingredients such as a ready-made curry paste, and you'll notice the difference. If you want fast food, get a falafel instead. They are great in Malmo, cheap, and a real treat.
As for service, the usual difficulties of getting a message across in any language you know. Fast, however. Decor is as bland as the food. Location is nice, and Moellan is an interesting part of Malmo. So, if the weather allows it, sit outside and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the square. But go for a weekday lunch menu. At least it will be cheap(ish, we're in Sweden after all).

“Amazingly Flavorful Thai food in Sweden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

We had some of the best Thai food we have had, and one of the best meals of our Sweden/Denmark trip at Krua Thai. The staff spoke pretty good English, plus had some pictures both in the menu and on the wall to assist in ordering. The food was not spicy (although they had spices you could add to heat things up), but was amazingly flavorful. The Pad Thai and Satay Chicken skewers did not disapoint. Plus, the price was pretty good compared to the other places we ate during the trip.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012 via mobile

It is not a quite and cosy restaurant but the food is very good and the price is great. The service is always good and you get the food quite fast.

“Family Dinner, Quality Decent - But kids loved it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

We have spent 4 years in Asia, and are used to Thai Food, this place was worth a visit, and they had a good selection of dishes, things are quite acceptable, but not something I would call authentic (or more like, I do not think they try to keep the quality up).

The kids had fun, pleasant event in town, and no rush. We enjoyed the place – but not the best quality of Thai food we have tasted.
