Khao Khai Brings Authentic Thai Street Cuisine to BGC

Khao Khai opens its 7th branch in Metro Manila, offering a unique taste of Northern Thai cuisine.

Khao Khai “Thai Chicken House”, the Thai diner concept known for its authentic Northern Thai cuisine, has opened its seventh branch in Bonifacio Global City (BGC). Despite the challenges brought by the pandemic, Khao Khai has continued to grow, thanks to its unique offerings and warm reception from the local dining crowd.

Owned and operated by Making Fine Group, the same F&B group behind Tiger Sugar, Gram Cafe & Pancakes, and Chunky Boss, Khao Khai brings to the table some of the least known flavors of Thailand from Chiang Mai and Isan – one that goes beyond the usual Pad Thai or Green Chicken Curry.

Seafood Khao Soi, Pork Khao Soi, and Chicken Khao Soi

Diners coming to Khao Khai will not find the usual Thai staples on the menu. Instead of Pad Thai, Bagoong Rice, or Tom Yum, they will find Phat Mama, or ramen noodles stir dry; Seafood Khao Soi, a classic and aromatic Northern Thai soup with coconut curry broth, fried egg noodles, shrimps, and squid; Red Beef Curry, which are beef sirloin strips cooked in garlic and red paste with a hint of lime and aromatic Thai lemon grass; and Yaowaraj Fried Rice, or Thai-style chicken fried rice.

Signature Gai Tod Fried Chicken

At the heart of Khao Khai’s menu is its selection of fried and grilled chicken. Their signature Gai Tod fried chicken is carefully battered to achieve the perfect outside crisp and a surprisingly flavorful and juicy meat. Meanwhile, Gai Yang, a grilled chicken dish, popular street food in Isan, marinated for nearly half a day before grilling, giving it a delicious smoky flavor.

Sauces are fundamental to Thai cuisine, and Khao Khai takes this seriously. Many of their sauces are made from scratch, including the Nam Jim Jaew (fish sauce with herbs and spices, prepared at least 8 hours before service) and Nam Jim Kai (homemade sweet chili sauce), which pair perfectly with their grilled and fried chicken dishes.

A roll of sides and salad will further parade across the table as diners enjoy many of Khao Khai’s delicacies, including Som Tam and egg salad sauce – allowing guests to appreciate the unique flavors in these parts of Thailand. From Som Tam Platter (hand-cut papaya salad) in the vegetable selection to Mango Sticky Rice as an ending to a great meal. 

Aside from their mouthwatering dishes, Khao Khai also offers a unique Thai street experience in every restaurant, evident with their design that dons all branches and the aromatic and flavorful smell that makes for a signature dining.

Khao Khai is located in six other branches in Poblacion, Makati; Del Monte Avenue, Quezon City; Mall of Asia; Santolan Town Plaza; SM Manila; and SM Fairview. They also offer deliveries via Food Panda and Grab Food.
