Thai Kitchen Pakuchi is an authentic Thai eatery on the corner of Kawaramachi Marutamachi in downtown Kyoto. Friendly, informal and lots of fun Pakuchi draws a mainly younger crowd of diners.
The chefs are Thai and the food, though less spicy maybe than found in Bangkok, is truly delicious.
The menu is extensive with all your favorite Thai dishes included: khao phat, (fried rice) pad thai (fried noodles) and, of course, som tom thai (spicy green papaya salad).
Drinks include Singha or Chang beer and a variety of Thai whiskeys and soft drinks.
