The best Thai restaurant in New Jersey
The popularity of Thai food in the United States has exploded in the 21st century; According to several reports, this is because the Thai government has started a program to train chefs in Thailand and then send them to the rest of the world.
This was done not only to popularize Thai food and increase tourism to Thailand, but also to standardize the quality of Thai food, which the government felt was not always well represented.
Now there are many Thai restaurants to choose from across the US and Eat This Not That! decided to find the best Thai restaurant in each state.
