“Good Thai food with quick service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This is the place to go for a Thai lunch in Malmö. Usually a very busy place at lunch time. The lunch is excellent value, with two dishes, lots of food and soft drinks or mineral water. They don't serve beer at lunch.

“Surprising”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

We had a very delicous dinner for two in this little restaurant. Not much tables, but very nice food.
We loved it. We had a 3 course menu for 2 persons total SEK 285, which was not expensive being in Sweden. (soup, 2 main courses and desert). You have to try!

“Get a falafel instead.”
2 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

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.
