Where to Get Thai Takeout During the COVID-19 Shutdown


Thai is a takeout staple, and many of our local Boston-area favorites continue to operate by pick-up or delivery. Whether you’re looking to sink into a comfortingly familiar Pad Thai or expand your palate with an authentic regional dish, you’ll be well-served by the following options.

The Davis Square favorite continues to sell its street food-style hits via takeout and delivery. Classic Thai-takeout dishes like Pad Thai and Khao Grapow may be more boldly flavored than you’ve ever experienced them before, and the deep flavors of noodle soups like creamy Khao Soi or spicy Tom Yum Noodles are enough to transport you to a Bangkok street stall.

Cha Yen Thai Cookery

Watertown’s Cha Yen Thai Cookery is open via takeout and delivery, connecting diners with Fried Curry Dumplings and piping bowls of Khao Soi Brisket noodles. You can also pick up Cha Yen’s homemade ice cream in flavors like Coconut, Thai Tea, and Durian.

Montien Thai Restaurant

Of course, there’s a place for classic, crowd-pleasing Thai takeout, too. Chinatown’s Montien Thai is offering comforting portions of its extensive menu via takeout or delivery (try the Spicy Basil Fried Rice or the Pad-Se Iew Noodles with crispy fried chicken).


This “Thai Tapas Bar” in Brookline Village, Mahaniyom, is open for takeout and delivery. Its curries, like the Kang Pu (crab curry) and Roti Beef Massaman with slow-cooked beef shank, are rich and flavorful, and dishes like Ba Mee Hang Nua (egg noodles, hand-cut beef hanger, and pork bone marrow broth) and Yum Ngoh (toasted coconut, dried shrimp, cashew nuts, rambutan, and chili jam) combine a riot of texture and tastes to magnificent effect.

Pho Basil

Thai and Vietnamese classics can be picked up or delivered from Pho Basil. So, whether your particular craving demands Drunken Noodles in spicy basil sauce or Bun Thit Nuong with grilled lemongrass chicken, you can count on this Mass Ave. favorite to make it happen.

S&I To Go

Considering the name, it should come as no surprise that this Allston cult favorite continues to operate by takeout and delivery. What you may be surprised by is the sheer scope of its gently priced offerings, which range from Crispy Pad Thai to Thai BBQ Chicken with Sticky Rice to pan-fried Whole Fish in sweet and sour tamarind sauce.
