Dishes from the a la carte menu will be served from 6.30 pm until 11pm and will feature appetisers such as fried sea prawn and minced chicken salad, grilled dishes and curries including green short-rib prepared with beef short-ribs in green curry with turmeric, lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime and red chili and finally desserts such as Sariem, made from mung bean flour, young coconut meat, pandan leaves and coconut milk.

Phukvarun Watchmon said: “My mother taught me how to use herbs and roots in cooking at a very young age as this is the base of Thai cuisine. I take pride in my menu, as it is my way of bringing our tradition to other parts of the world, and I am always happy to see people enjoying Thai dishes.”
