Story of Pad Thai

During World War II, Thailand suffered a rice shortage due to the war and floods.      

To reduce domestic rice consumption, the Thai government under Prime Minister 

Plaek Phibunsongkhram promoted consumption of noodles instead. His government promoted

rice noodles and helped to establish the identity of Thailand. As a result, a new noodle called 

sen chan (named after Chanthaburi Province) was created.

Pad thai has since become one of Thailand's national dishes

Pad thai is made of rice noodles, which are stir-fried with tamarind sauce, eggs, bean sprouts,

   garlic chives and spring onion. served with lime wedges and chopped roasted peanuts.

Our Story

Pad Thai Story is a story of three friends who were passionate about creating new faces of pad thai. They wanted to share their love of Thai food with others and embarked on a journey to start their very own restaurant. In 2019, they opened their first Pad Thai Story restaurant in Wandsworth Town, London, and since then, their empire has grown.

As they continued to expand, they opened their second restaurant in December 2021 in Battersea-Rise. Each dish at Pad Thai Story is cooked with the handed-down recipe from the Great Grandma of one of the owners, and the Chef himself is a true master of the traditional Thai culinary arts. With its vibrant atmosphere and delicious dishes, Pad Thai Story has become a go-to place for food lovers looking to experience the true taste of original Thai food.

But the story doesn't end there. In December 2023, another chapter of Pad Thai Story opens in Hammersmith. This time, they have taken their passion for Thai cuisine and extended it to a wider audience, offering a more inclusive dining experience.

At Pad Thai Story, they pride themselves on using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients to create their mouth-watering dishes.
