This Nice place in Kato Petralona is a very good option of you're looking for some Thai food!

It has a good variety of appetizers and typical main dishes from Thai Cuisine with good prices. Try Tom Yum with shrimp with is spicy but not too much. Have a vanilla sky for a drink, which is citric and spicy at the same time in a surprising way.

The place is 10min away by foot from Petralona metro station on the green line, easily accessible even if you don't have a car

The best Thai restaurant in Greece! True Thai dished with authentic Thai ingredients. Very kind people and amazing place. Don’t forget to visit the roof during the summer. It’s a must in Athens.

We were there last night, a party of three, the atmosphere is nice, easy to access, parking places around, however firstly it's not genuine Thai food but a mixture of Asian foods (although some Thai recipes are present) however I don't know what they put in our dishes (we did not eat the 3 of us the same stuff) we all had digestion problems throughout the night :( won't return, there are better ones in town. Price is reasonable (ard 20-25 € pp incl wine)

The restaurant is located a bit outside of the touristic hot spots of Athens.
The first thing you might struggle with is that during summer time you arrive at the restaurant and it seems that the restaurant is closed. Windows and doors are closed and locked. There is no sign of life, but no worries there is a side entrance on the left hand side of the main entrance which leads you to a stairway, which you have to climb up to the end to reach the roof top garden where the restaurant operates during the summer.
The design of the roof top garden is trying to have a thai flavor which I think is ok.
The menus are designed as a book and are available in Greek and English.
Prices are relatively high compared to Greek standards.
The spiciness of the dishes is way below average of similar dishes in Thailand, Germany or the UK.
I ordered my dish "extra hot" (thai style), but it came very mild, so I asked for the typical "prik nam pla" which was completely unknown by the personal. Instead I've got chills oil as you normally have in Chinese restaurants.
The dishes themselves are prepared very well recognizing thai traditions and using some thai ingredients as you would expect. As asian food is not as popular in Greece as it is in other countries in Europe many ingredients are difficult to have.
The personal of the restaurant is a bit slow and unorganized. For example an additional bowl of rice might take you up to 15 minutes to get it which probably ruins your main dish as it gets cold.
The bar has a lot to chose from and offers good quality.
The chef who is thai has a difficult situation in front of him as asian food is not so popular in Greece therefore he prepares extremely delicious dishes, but it is important that the waiters let him know if a guest asks for authentic hot thai food.
Chilli oil is no solution as it ruins the taste.

Nice and high quality thai food.Chicken sticks, Pekingese Duck and Pad Thai (shrimp noodles) should be definitely in your options. Restaurant is on the roof upon summer months and has an extra balcony in the top of the building which has a nice view to a part of athens and it is a nice place for their interesting alcohol coctails.
