A drive on Maha Chai Road in the evening may mean the encounter of a long line planted in front of Jay Fai, a restaurant, or as many referred to as a “street food” destination. Having been the first street-side eatery to be awarded a Michelin star in MICHELIN Guide Bangkok two years in a row (2018-19), the venue which was once a nightly stop for neighbourhood folks and the city’s hungriest drivers is now a hot pit stop for foodies as well as local and international chefs with a curious palette for the starred street meal.
