Pakpao brings a little culture to the Design District, where the cuisine of Thailand is presented with bold and spicy flavors. The restaurant takes no reservations, but turns tables relatively quickly, while a small bar area provides beer and cocktails for those who are waiting. When you do get your seat, order aggressively. Many of the plates here are perfect for sharing. If you’re tired of the same old takeout Thai, Pakpao will set you free.
