Many Asian restaurants offer a fusion of cuisines and include some Thai dishes on their menus. Authentic Thai restaurants specialising in genuine Thai food are few but the following three eateries come highly recommended:
This recently opened Thai restaurant is situated on Calle Gerona in central Benidorm. Although it's a new addition to Benidorm's compliment of Thai restaurants, Jindeeka is growing in reputation and boasts an extensive a la carte menu featuring many delicious authentic Thai dishes. The restaurant is ideally located on one of the city's busiest streets that hosts many lively bars and popular restaurants.
The restaurant interior, although fairly small, is elegant and authentically decorated in shades of calming purple. There is seating both inside and out and a well stocked delightful cocktail bar at one end. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, offering great advice on menu options and specials. Jindeeka offers diners a fantastic choice of authentic Thai favourites in both their a la carte and value for money set menus.

Wok Buffet Mandarin
This Asian buffet restaurant is located on Avenida Doctor Severo Ochoa and offers a Thai set menu along with other Asian cuisines. The set menu has many tasty options to choose from including authentic Thai red and green curries and is extremely good value for money. The Wok Buffet Mandarin is bright and spacious and the staff are friendly and welcoming. This restaurant is ideal for families and large groups as it offers diners a choice of cuisines as well as a popular ‘eat all you can' option.
As is the case with most Thai restaurants outside of Thailand, most of the Thai restaurants in Benidorm have ‘tamed' the spiciness of their dishes to better suit western palates, so if you want genuine Thai ”blow your head off” spiciness, just ask when ordering.
