Khao Man Gai Route 16

Tasty, reasonably priced Thai cuisine in Fussa

By Kim B    - 2 min read

Great food, good value for money, and a fun atmosphere - those are usually my dining out criteria, and when I can achieve all three at the one place I'm a happy camper. In the Tokyo suburb of Fussa there's a tasty Thai restaurant on Route 16 which ticks all of those boxes - Khao Man Gai.

It's hard to miss the restaurant as you're heading along the main drag, since there's a traditional Thai tuk tuk out the front, small stools to sit on, and Singha beer flags and an umbrella (Singha is the official beer of Thailand).

The lunch menu here is particularly wallet-friendly. For 1000 yen, you're able to choose from one main dish (the options include pad thai, chicken ga pao, tom yum noodles, and the restaurant's namesake, khao man gai, among others) alongside unlimited green curry, jasmine rice, and soup. They also do the lunch menu to-go, but it doesn't include the green curry or rice, so dining in is advised if you're wanting to maximize your yen! If you visit with children, they also have several kids meals options available (600 yen) which come served with ice cream.

The inside of the restaurant is quite small, and since it's a popular spot with the local community you may find yourself having to wait for a table if you visit right as the lunch rush hits. Because of that, I recommend getting there early if feasible. The staff speak English, and English menus are also available, so don't let a lack of Japanese deter you from visiting.

Getting there

Khao Man Gai is located approximately eight minutes on foot from Higashi Fussa Station on the JR Hachiko Line, or just over ten minutes on foot from either Fussa Station or Ushihama Station on the JR Ome Line. Since on-site parking is limited, visiting by public transportation is advised.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan - specifically Tokyo and Niigata. I've  visited 44 of 47 prefectures - with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

Wow, it looks like you were transported to the Land of Smiles! The price is reasonable for Tokyo.

The all you can eat element at lunch definitely makes it reasonable! At dinner like a lot of places in Japan the price is more, but lunch is where it's at!
