About Thai Select

Since the 1960s, Thai cuisine has become well-known worldwide. Due to its huge popularity, many restaurants overseas try to attract customers by naming their places “Thai restaurant” . Many of them do not even have Thai food on their menus. Recognizing this situation and the importance of maintaining high standard and quality of Thai food, the Royal Thai Government has therefore launched the “Thai SELECT” program to certify and promote real Thai cuisine around the world. The objective of the program is to increase the recognition of quality Thai restaurants as well as to encourage Thai restaurateurs to raise their quality while maintaining authenticity. Receiving this prestigious award is not easy; the bar is set high and the guidelines are strict. In fact, Thai SELECT not only certifies food, but it also includes the hospitality and atmosphere of the restaurant. Chefs must be carefully trained in the preparation of bona fide Thai meals. Through training and inspections, high standard Thai Restaurants worldwide have achieved this distinction. So anywhere you travel, look for the stamp of approval “Thai SELECT”. It assures you that delicious Thai cuisine is being served in a pleasant atmosphere, and with the famous Thai smile. It’s not just a meal; it’s a journey into Thai culture.
