Being a former resident of Thailand and also being half Thai myself, I always have a craving for Thai food. Finding a place in Shanghai that is Close to Authentic is hard because most Thai restaurants in China have a Chinese component to it. I have to visit Urban Thai every week because it always satisfies my cravings. The people who compare or complain about it not being as Authentic as Thailand seem to be forgetting something... We aren't IN THAILAND! No cuisine is going to taste exactly like the actual place. But Urban Thai definitely is the best and it hits the closest to home. The old Thai lady chef told me "Stir fried basil taste amazing with Thai basil. We tried bringing basil from Thailand but they spoil." Even with the basils they buy in Shanghai, their stir fried basil is awesome! (Order an egg on top to make it street style) the Thai iced tea is to die for. Its exactly like the street carts in BKK. The red duck curry is also a must try. I recommend UT to all Thai food lovers who just want a taste of Thailand in Shanghai.
