Mellow Space Tips on eating in Thailand:

Generally the street traders and local markets cater for Thai’s, so the food is “Spicy”.

Thai restaurants in tourist areas will cater for tourists, so not normally as spicy as traditional Thai food.

Thai culture is to share everything that is ordered and the food comes in no particular order, so if you find yourself in a local restaurant ordering starters and main meals the chances of it arriving at your table in that way are Very Slim…

If you do really want starter and main meal then order starters, when it comes, order mains.

If you get out of the tourist areas of Thailand you will probably find restaurants will only have menus in Thai and very few staff, if any who speak any other language so be prepared with a phrase book.
