I wouldn't say it's a destination place but if you're in Oak Square there really aren't any rivals. It's great if you just want a quick bite to eat at a low price. It's VERY reasonable by Boston standards. They're from the north so their specialty is Northern Thai food. Skip the menu and order from the chalk board. You won't regret it!

Ordering at Thai North is simple. Ignore the paper menu they give you and order from the chalk board of specials. Or better yet, ask your waitress. The women who work here are amazing and so friendly and helpful. They've suggested many dishes to me and I've never been disappointed.

The standard menu serves up pretty typical Americanized Thai food, although not as overly sweetened with coconut milk as many places. Even if you go with something basic like Pad Thai you'll have a good meal. But you will be missing out on something really special. As the name suggests, this restaurants specializes in Northern Thai dishes. I've been going frequently since I discovered it and have tried most (all?) of the specials. Every one is delightful and I've seen few of them on other menus in Boston.

Especially good are the Thai Dumplings, Pork Salad and Burmese Curry.

They offer take out, of course, but it's worth it to dine in. It's a small restaurant but rarely crowded. The presentation of the food at the table is beautiful and when you order take out they give you lots of things on the side. It can be hard to know what goes with what.

If you're consulting the menu online, check out the Thai North Specials tab.

Thai North is a 5 table that has incredible Thai food for dine in, take out or delivery. When I find a new Thai Restaurant, I order the Tom Yung Goong, if it is good, i will eat there, if not, good bye. The Tom Yung Goong at Thai North was extraordinary, with a wonder flavor I had never met before. The Chef is from Chang Mai from the North of Thailand, thus it's name and cuisine. No matter what you order, the mix of flavors and spices, while different from the usual Thai food you may be used to, will excite your taste buds and make you want to return again and again. You will find all of your usual Thai favorites on the menu plus the northern specialities, so there is something for all thai food lovers. Thai North is located on the North side of Oak Square, has been there about 1 year and is building a loyal following. Give it a try, you will be a return customer.
