Phitsanulok Description

Phitsanulok is a unique and exceptional restaurant located in Aichi, Japan, specializing in authentic Thai cuisine. What sets Phitsanulok apart from other dining establishments is its commitment to using the finest Japanese ingredients to create traditional Thai dishes. With two talented chefs at the helm, Phitsanulok combines the rich flavors of Thailand with the abundance of fresh produce and seafood found in Japan.

One of the standout dishes at Phitsanulok is the carefully handcrafted Nam Prik Gaeng, a traditional Thai curry made by Chef Hojaku using a traditional Thai mortar and pestle. This dish showcases the authentic flavors and techniques of Thai cuisine that are rarely found even in Thailand itself. Another highlight is the use of fresh coconut milk and the incorporation of aged fish and natural mushrooms, expertly paired with Thai spices by Chef Ishiyama, who is also a certified sommelier.

The restaurant offers a variety of tasting menus, including the Wine Pairing Course, which features a selection of six wines carefully chosen by Chef Hojaku to complement the flavors of the Thai dishes. For a more adventurous dining experience, the Half Pairing Course combines six wines with a chef's choice of Thai dishes, while the Full Pairing Course offers an extensive selection of wines paired with a chef's selection of Thai delicacies.

With its dedication to using high-quality ingredients, traditional cooking techniques, and innovative flavor combinations, Phitsanulok is a must-visit for anyone seeking an authentic and unforgettable Thai dining experience in Aichi, Japan.

Located next to Takatake, where many of Nagoya's popular restaurants are located, this restaurant is located along Sakura-dori from Kurashimichi Station towards Takatake Station.The inside of the restaurant has a simple atmosphere like a small cafe. The store name is the same as the name of a province in Thailand, so is it named after that?
The food is an omakase course, and the drinks are paired and half-paired, but there are some interesting drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.
The first thing that caught my eye was the art-like plates placed on the table.As expected, these were decorative plates, but many of the plates used for the food were also beautiful in the same style. .
The food served is even more beautiful than the plate, and the fresh herbs and vegetables are used to create refreshing and sophisticated Thai cuisine. The khao yam and tom save were particularly impressive, but all of the dishes were unique.
It's still easy to make reservations, and it's a wonderful restaurant that I'd like to visit when I come to Nagoya again, so if you haven't visited yet, I highly recommend you give it a try.


A Thai restaurant specializing in Thai food near the Expressway Station.
I made a reservation at the counter on tablecheck and visited.

"Dinner course" 12,000 yen
■Khao yam rice salad
A signboard menu that you often see?
Hassaku and a variety of other vegetables are gorgeous.
Place jasmine rice in the middle.
Have it mixed and eat.
“Yam” means to mix, and it is a delicious dish.

■ Boudon raw crab pickled in fish sauce
It's like pickled in Shaoxing wine.
It is said to be a female migratory crab from Mikawa.

■Yam Makapao, roasted eggplant, tiger prawn, sumi squid
I thought it wasn't warm with my eyes, but it turned out to be warm, which was a happy miscalculation.
It felt like it had more ingredients than I expected.
The grilled eggplant is wonderful.

■Homokburra steamed black sea bream with red curry
The coconut sauce on top? I was able to go again.

■Black pork and black garlic Gaeng fermented sausage Miyankam sticky rice
Four piece set.
Myankam is a mysteriously delicious dish wrapped in leaves.
Sausage has a strange taste, but when you eat it with ginger and almonds, it's strange that it doesn't bother you.
Black pork fat is justice.
I ate the mochi rice by hand as instructed and it was delicious.

■Tom Shape Mishima Beef Domestic Natural Mushroom Herb Soup
A delicious soup doped with the flavor of mushrooms and beef fat. The herbal flavor is reminiscent of Southeast Asia.

■Gaeng Kyaowan Okumino old chicken green curry
I also tried making some food.
They use coconuts that have grown relatively (the embryo has become thicker).
Mild and delicious.

■Coconut milk brine
I realized that the coconut fruit is crunchy.

It was my first time having high-end Thai food, and it was very delicious.
I was able to use my credit card.


I wanted to read the article that was in the magazine. I've been to Thailand several times in the past, so I felt nostalgic and was excited to see what kind of food I could eat.
The food that came out was delicious for both the eyes and the tongue. I'm satisfied with all the flavors that I would never (or can't) make myself.
