I cannot get enough of pad thai with prawns from Thip's Thai. Not only it's the best in Canberra, I can safely say that it's one of best in Thailand. Lunch time is always a mad house with a long line for ready-made hot meals, come early to avoid the queue, or book a table and pre-order a la carte around 11 am. If you have a big group, it's probably better to come in the evening. Thip's Thai is the closest to the authentic Thai street food experience you can get. It's not a fancy place to take your date to but if you want real Thai food how it's done in Thailand, this is the place.
