Inspired by nature, this charming family-run restaurant is set in a lush green garden that recalls nature in all its natural form. It is also the chef and his artistic family’s home. Marked by a deep-rooted furniture design business, the restaurant has a workshop area showcasing unique home and garden iron art pieces. Additionally, there is a coffee shop and a small area serving vegetarian cuisine that is run the chef’s sister, complemented by an on-site herb and vegetable garden.

The Chef and the Brigade
“Learning as it is an endless process, and I never stop trying to invent new ways to highlight local Thai ingredients. I believe my passion for food, and continuous trial and error motto is what has led to my restaurant’s success today. Everyone can learn, so I pass along my knowledge to our staff whom I consider to be an important part of my family. They are locals with no cooking background, but I take the time to teach them everything from gardening, to cooking and serving a meal that they can be proud of.”
Full BioChef Nan is a self-taught chef who quit his job working for his family’s furniture manufacturing business to live out his life-long dream. His first restaurant was a small western cuisine bistro, but sadly it was not successful. He did not give up. Instead, he tried harder by learning molecular gastronomy cooking techniques from every source he could find. His hard work and perseverance paid off: he won an award at Iron Chef Thailand 2013.
