Thai cuisine is the national cuisine of Thailand. Thai cooking places emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. Thai cooking rejects simplicity and is about "the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish".

  • Tom Yum Goong - A bold, refreshing blend of fragrant lemongrass, chilli, galangal, lime leaves, shallots, lime juice and fish sauce shapes this classic soup.
  • Som Tum - Garlic, chilies, green beans, cherry tomatoes and shredded raw papaya get dramatically pulverized in a pestle and mortar, so releasing a rounded sweet-sour-spicy flavour.
  • Tom Kha Kai - This iconic soup infuses fiery chilies, thinly sliced young galangal, crushed shallots, stalks of lemongrass and tender strips of chicken.
  • Gaeng Daeng – Made with morsels of meat, red curry paste, smooth coconut milk and topped off with a sprinkling of finely sliced kaffir lime leaves.
  • Pad Thai – Thin or wide noodles with crunchy beansprouts, onion and egg, before disembarking for the nearest plate.
