Bristol is a busy metropolis, and the UK’s 10th largest city by population, with some 416,000 residents. It combines its traditional industrial roots with a growing commercial sector and a diverse, bohemian student population, to create a culture mix-up that makes for a vibrant and interesting city
The first place to check out Bristol Thai restaurants is by the harbour. The famous floating harbour (so called because of fixed water levels, by design) is home to a number of tourist attractions, in addition to bars, clubs and restaurants. While this might not be the best place for a quiet meal, it can be a great location to take in the Bristol culture and experience what this great city has to offer over a delicious Thai green curry.
Baldwin Street and the roads emanating from it can be a great source of hidden gems when it comes to restaurants, and the surrounding areas are no exception when it comes to Bristol Thai restaurants with at least four situated within ten minutes of each other. If you’re a big Thai fan, it would be possible to sample these four, before moving further into the Clifton area to experience the less accessible restaurants this city has to offer.
The areas surrounding the central University of Bristol campus are also home to a number of less mainstream Thai restaurants that serve a more discerning audience. While that doesn’t necessarily mean a higher price, it does mean the opportunity to encounter authentic Thai cooking that sticks to tradition and flavour, rather than vying for mass-market appeal.
Failing that, there are a range of print publications available on the Bristol Thai restaurant scene, many of which already mark the various Bristol Thai restaurants trading in the area. However, while this is good as a means of plotting the nearest to your location, it does fall short without reviews and recommendations for those that aren’t familiar with the city, who may have to resort to the Internet or the local press for independent information on the best places to eat.
The Bristol food scene is full to bursting with great restaurants and great value for money. In the competitive, cut and thrust city atmosphere, only the best survive, and when it comes to Bristol Thai restaurants, the competition is stiffer than ever. For food enthusiasts, that means the opportunity to sample some of the country’s best Thai cuisine at affordable rates in up-and-coming restaurants that have yet to be subjected to the popular media glare. It’s these hidden secrets that make Bristol a haven for food-lovers, and the ideal place to dine out.
