The Thai Cuisine Restaurant is one of the best places to eat genuine Thai food in Kaohsiung. The general manager (Pai Yu Yen) and her daughter speak great English and are extremely hospitable and friendly.
Each item on the menu has a picture and an English description, so it’s very clear to see what you are getting. My favourites are the coconut chicken, phad thai, stir fried water spinach with shrimp sauce, and the papaya salad with salted eggs.
The menu is simple and everything is cooked fresh, and extremely delicious. Food prices are midrange for Kaohsiung, each dish is approximately NT$120 – NT$150, and 2 people might share 3 – 4 dishes plus rice. So, a meal for 2 without drinks will cost approximately NT$600
