Coconut Rain — Thai Food in Gangnam


Update 5/2016: Coconut Rain is no longer open in Gangnam. For excellent Thai food in Seoul — go to Buddha’s Belly in Itaewon. 

When I have a taste for some exquisite peanut, curry or cashew nut flavored Thai food, I always go to one of two places: Buddha’s Belly in Itaewon,  or Coconut Rain in Gangnam. Since I live in Gangnam, I have visited Coconut Rain on several occasions, and I have always enjoyed my meals there.

My favorite dishes are the Shrimp Pad Thai and the Cashew Chicken. The Cashew Chicken dish is normally prepared with red hot chili peppers, but I ask them to make a milder version for me by removing the spicy peppers. The owner and the waitstaff are very kind, and they can have the kitchen prepare the dish in a delicious milder brown sauce, if you would prefer.

I don’t like the Pho noodle soup or the spring rolls at Coconut Rain, because both of these items are a bit bland to me. However,  I do think the Pad Thai (8k won) and the Cashew Chicken (16k won) dishes are definite winners for a reasonable price. When you are in the mood for some Thai food, try out these dishes — which are sure to please.

To get to Coconut Rain >>>> Go to Gangnam Station Exit #11. Continue straight out of the Exit until you reach CGV. Turn Right at CGV and walk up the hill. Make your first right. Continue straight and Coconut Rain is on your left. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰ ☺
