Fodor's Expert Review Polo Fried Chicken

$ Pathumwan Thai

Though not everyone agrees that the fried chicken served here is Bangkok's best, this place is legendary, always packed with Thais and foreigners sampling chicken flavored with black pepper and plenty of golden-brown garlic. The best way to enjoy it is with sticky rice and a plate of som tam papaya salad, all for under B300. The restaurant is a bit hard to find—as you enter Soi Polo (Soi Sanam Khli), it's about 50 yards in on your left. At lunchtime, get here before noon to score a table before the office workers descend. If you're reasonably close to Lumphini Park, Polo will deliver to your hotel for B30.
