Craving Thai food? Us too — thank goodness for delivery! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite Thai restaurants in the city that are offering pick up and delivery options.
A Shadyside staple, Noodlehead offers authentic noodle dishes that are inspired by the street markets of Thailand. You can’t go wrong with any of the street noodles, plus their pork belly steamed buns are the perfect appetizer.
Noodlehead is currently offering take-out options. You can order in person, online, or on a temporary “Noodle hotline” phone number. Remember, Noodlehead takes cash only!
Senyai Thai Kitchen, Shadyside
This cozy Shadyside location offers excellent Thai food. While we can’t fully enjoy the new, modern interior of the restaurant right now, we can still enjoy the menu! Senyai offers tom yum soup, customizable salads, crispy tofu, and chicken satay. For your main course, try the stir-fried tofu, shrimp, chicken or seafood. They’re also known for their curry, seafood, and noodle dishes. And don’t forget about the homemade ice cream.
Senyai is open for contact-free take out or delivery through GrubHub, Postmates and DoorDash.
Smiling Banana Leaf, Highland Park
One of my personal favorites, Smiling Banana Leaf has excellent Thai food and a robust menu. Their pad thai is widely considered to be one of the best in the city. Smiling Banana offers everything from spring rolls and crab rangoons to noodle soups and curry.
