We all know Jay Fai, both the iconic owner and the Michelin-starred street restaurant. Here are nine must-try dishes to order at Raan Jay Fai.

Bangkok isn’t Bangkok without street food, and Jay Fai is the coolest kid around. The street-side Thai restaurant has retained its Michelin star for four consecutive years (2018-2022) now. Supinya Junsuta, more commonly known as Jay Fai, is the mastermind behind all the signature dishes the outlet has to offer.

His goggles became as famous as his wok food, establishing a fashion statement displayed in front of a charcoal stove glinting with dancing flames. All hail the queen of Bangkok’s street food.
