Khao Sarn was created by Chef Wiroj Aramthip and his family to share their interpretation of Northern Thai cuisine & hospitality with the Boston community.


Some of our favorite dishes include, Haw Moak (a curry steamed in banana leaves), Sai Oua (a homemade Thai spicy sausage), Steamed whole Striped-Bass, and the very popular Thai Spicy Crispy Chili Duck. Our menu is extensive and we offer dishes from all over Thailand made from the freshest ingredients available.


Our staff is Sanook (Thai meaning for joy & fun) and our restaurant & bar ambiance reflects Lanna (laid-back, kindness & beauty).





Press and Awards




"Chef and owner Wiroj Aramthip works wonders with northern Thailands intense flavors. Two warnings: Spices play a big part in the dishes, and the bar’s creative libations can be potent.

"[One of] the best local Thai restaurants."
