Thailand was known as Siam until 1939. It was the only Southeast Asian country never colonized by the West. This helped Thailand maintain its own special cuisine, which was influenced by Thailand's Asian neighbors.

The Thai people migrated to their present homeland from southern China about 2,000 years ago. They brought with them the spicy cooking of their native Yunan province, as well as its dietary staple, rice. Other Chinese influences on Thai cooking included the use of noodles, dumplings, soy sauce, and other soy products. Like the Chinese, the Thais based their recipes on blending five basic flavors: salty, sweet, sour, bitter, and hot.

Thai food is known for its unique combinations of seasonings. Although it can be hot and spicy, Thai cooking is carefully balanced to bring out all the different flavors in a dish. Curries are very popular, along with hot chilies and coconut. Other common flavorings are fish sauce, dried shrimp paste, lemon grass, and the spices coriander, basil, garlic, ginger, cumin, cardamom, and cinnamon.
