welcome to giin thai canteen Now Open on saturdays
If you like your Thai food hot and spicy, then Giin Thai Canteen is your destination! Our goal has been to re-create more of the authenticity of the cuisine in Thailand, with the goodness and freshness of local ingredients, resulting in spicy and flavorful bites of mouth-watering delights. And, with less of the sweetness that is all too familiar with Thai cuisine in the Americas and outside of Thailand.
You'll find nothing too fancy here - in fact, we're pretty "bare bones." Just great grub that bursts with the flavors of the bustling markets and street food that makes Thailand such a fantastic destination for unique food and culture. A little bit like Berkeley itself, na? We offer take-out, inside counter seating, and a few tables outside. So come join us, we'll welcome you "sawadee krub" or "sawadee ka" (a polite hello), and "Giin Khao!" (Let's Eat!).
