Best Thai Food in Jersey City

Although cities such as Hoboken and Jersey City are primarily associated with Italian-Americans, New Jersey is one of the most ethnically diverse places in the United States. That fact is reflected in the state’s wide array of popular restaurants and cuisines, one of them being Thai food. If you’re a business traveler or you recently relocated, dining out is a great way to unwind, give yourself a break from cooking and challenge the monotony that frequent travel sometimes brings.

When you’re in the mood for some comforting pad Thai or spicy red curry, here are five of the best casual Thai restaurants Jersey City and Hoboken have to offer.
