9 best dishes at Michelin-starred street food stall Jay Fai in Bangkok

We’re all familiar with Jay Fai, both the iconic owner and the Michelin-starred street-side restaurant. Here are nine best dishes to order at Raan Jay Fai in Bangkok.

Bangkok is not Bangkok without street food, and Jay Fai is the coolest kid on the street food block. The street-side Thai restaurant has retained its Michelin star for four years in a row (2018-2022) now. Supinya Junsuta, more commonly known as Jay Fai, is the mastermind behind all the iconic dishes the outlet has to offer.

Her signature goggles have become as far-famed as her wok-fired food, setting a fashion statement flaunted in front of a coal-fired stove glistening with dancing flames. All hail the queen of Bangkok street food.
