If you can handle the strict rules of Chef Bas, then Lung Yai should be a number one Thai restaurant on your list. It’s not often that there’s no a line of people waiting outside, but it’s always worth it. Check out the menu before you get there and order quickly, you only get one chance to order. It’s part of the rules.

Moon Thai

Moon Thai is always a solid choice for delicious Thai food. The original location is across the street from University of Miami, and features a massive lunch menu with over a dozen options for under $12 that all consist of an entree, soup, salad, and rice. Thai on a budget is something we can all get behind.
