Chef Thitid "Ton" Tassanakajohn is a fixture on the Bangkok gourmet scene, the man behind the renowned Le Du and Baan restaurants.
His newest venture, Nusara, pays homage to his late grandmother, and features classic Thai family recipes that are prepared in 12 course set tasting menus which run you through a gamut of different Thai cuisines. The setting is in an intimate dining room that only seats 10 guests (yes, you'll need reservations), and you'll get to tantalize your tastebuds with dishes like crab curry served on crispy betel leaf with caviar or a traditional pad krapao (Thai holy basil stir fry) done with the most tender wagyu beef. Nusara, like Tassanakajohn's other restaurants, has received many prestigious awards, including a Michelin star, and a listing in the Asia's 50 Best Restaurants (currently ranked at 20 in 2021). Tasting menus here run 1990 baht, and if you're still hungry, you can head downstairs to Chef Ton's Mayrai Pad Thai, a chic wine bar with good old pad thai to go with your drinks.
