R-HAAN The Wisdom of Thai Cuisine SUMMER SAMRUB

Bangkok is a feast for the senses, and its food scene is no exception. But if you’re looking to elevate your experience beyond delicious street eats, R-HAAN, a 2-Michelin-starred restaurant, is a must-visit. Nestled in the trendy Thonglor district, R-HAAN offers an unforgettable encounter with Thai fine dining. This is my third time visiting R-HAAN and now they are offering their new menu, The Wisdom of Thai Cuisine SUMMER SAMRUB.

Walking into R-HAAN, the ambiance is elegant yet intimate. The staff’s warm welcome sets the tone for an evening of exceptional service. But the true star of the show is the food. Chef Chumpol draws inspiration from the old Thai poem “Nai Nam Mi Pla Nai Na Mi Khao” (In the river, there are fish; In the rice field, there is rice). This philosophy is evident in every dish, showcasing the rich tapestry of Thai ingredients and culinary traditions.

R-HAAN only offers multi-course tasting menus, allowing Chef Chumpol to take you on a guided journey through the flavors of Thailand. My experience began with an amuse-bouche presented in a whimsical wooden box. Each bite-sized morsel represented a different region of Thailand, a delightful explosion of taste and texture.

Throughout the meal, I was impressed by Chef Chumpol’s masterful use of seasonal ingredients. He elevates classic Thai dishes with a touch of modern flair, never losing sight of their essence. From melt-in-your-mouth Wagyu beef to fragrant curries bursting with fresh herbs, each course was a revelation.
