Best of Boston

2014 Best Thai Restaurant

Thai North

Upon entering this tiny Brighton storefront, you’ll want to turn to the wall on your right: It’s entirely covered with images of the dizzying array of Thai specialties on offer. If this selection doesn’t overwhelm you, the chalkboard by the kitchen features an additional seven or so northern Thai dishes—including ripping-hot green chili nam phrik and soul-warming noodle curries—that will have you rethinking every plate of drunken noodles you’ve ever ordered.
