After two months living in the Atacama desert, I was craving Thai food when I made it to Santiago this week. Thai Express has all the mainstays (khao pad/fried rice, pad thai, pad pak/fried vegetables, curries) and serves large portions quickly. I think the Chilean...More

best Thai food I've ever had. We had the green curry and traditional pad Thai. Can't recommend this place more. It's a tiny restaurant/take away hole in the wall that fits maybe 10 people. You can watch the chef cook which is impressive!!! The best.
