In Thailand, food is the central focus of people’s lives.

In virtually every aspect of their lives, from simple get-togethers to important ceremonies, food is at the heart of it all.

Thai cooking is very distinct. Its rich textures and aromatic qualities are easily identifiable and what gives Thai food its distinctive character is a harmony in its tastes. The traditional taste of Thai food lies in the combination of four key tastes; sweet, salty, sour and bitter which balance together to

give you its exquisite taste.


In Thai cooking, specific herbs are used, such as lemongrass, kaffir lime, galangal, Thai basil and mint along with pastes.

One of the most important things about Thai food and Thai cuisine is its lightness, heat and its passionate smell long before it arrives at the dining table. It is also one of the healthiest cuisines and in Thai restaurants, food is only cooked once its ordered which allows guests to specify exactly what they want or don’t want included in their dishes.



It is our belief that as long as we are creative and creating this extraordinary culinary and cultural experience for our guests, we will accomplish our goal.
