One of the best Thai restaurants in Chiang Mai, Ging Grai is named after the branch (ging) of a sea fig (grai) tree which is known for its strong and deep-burrowing roots, symbolizing the inspiration for the menu and cuisine of this Chiang Mai Thai restaurant. The dishes created and served by the chef and kitchen team at Ging Grai have all been inspired by the flavours of the 4 favourite regional cuisines of Thailand. Fig trees, similar to a banyan tree, are especially important to the founder of Ging Grai as his mother planted a fig tree on the family land, just after his birth, and its branches have provided shade, as well as a refuge for tranquil family moments, for more than three decades.
The Chef and the Brigade
“I am passionate about my home country’s delicious cuisine. We are blessed with so many incredible ingredients, with each region of Thailand having its own unique flavours, creating their own unique regional cuisines. And it is these that we want to share with the diners under one roof at our restaurant, Ging Grai in Chiang Mai. I am from Nakorn Phanom province in Isan and have been working with the family and team behind Ging Grai in some of their other restaurants for more than 5 years, studying the traditional recipes of the family and those we collect from around Thailand to create the wonderful menu we have at Ging Grai where you can taste and dine your way around Thailand on one table. My brigade and I are very much looking forward to cooking for you. See you soon at Ging Grai Chiang Mai.”
