Today will mark Nahm’s final dinner service under chef David Thompson, who created the restaurant with Como Hotels 18 years ago.
Thompson made the decision to part ways with the restaurant last year to continue exploring Thai food and flavours and to pursue new opportunities through Aylmer Aaharn, the Thai food group he co-founded in 2014.
Nahm was first created at COMO’s Halkin Hotel in London, earning a Michelin star within six months, before the current Nahm opened at the Metropolitan Hotel in Bangkok in 2011. The restaurant has remained on the World’s 50 Best Restaurant list for seven consecutive years and was recently awarded a Michelin star in Bangkok’s inaugural year of the guide.
Thompson was presented a lifetime achievement award in 2016 for his dedication to Thai food culture at Asia’s 50 Best.
