Thai cuisine with fine dining. Dive into a sea of starters like smoked catfish wrapped in wild tea leaves and seasoned river prawns with pickled garlic, kaffir lime and peanuts. Mains include a red beef curry with peanuts, Asian citron and pickled shallots, as well as a fermented bean curd relish with minced pork and prawns. You can also expect Thai sweets like their Ancestor biscuits and coconut candies.
Located in Charoenkrung, the restaurant sits above Central: The Original Store, which opened in 1950 and housed imported books, magazines and stationery. In keeping with the tradition, the new concept adapts to the shop, as Thompson leafed through old cookbooks and brought the dishes to life in the new menu. The space, meanwhile, provides an open kitchen that gives all diners a firsthand view into the inner workings of Thompson and his fiery brigade.
