Le Du: home of Bangkok's hottest young chef

Discover Ton, the young top chef of the capital, and his bold new take on an ancient cuisine.

Behind its discreet facade, this restaurant has become in two years the new culinary sensation of the Thai capital. Having trained with the greatest chefs of New York, “Chef Ton” (his real name is Ton Thidid Tassanakajohn) combines the exceptional products of an ancient cuisine with the techniques of the best restaurants in the world.

River prawns with organic rice and shrimp paste, free range chicken served with okra, baby corn and a kua-ham sauce, or the 30-days dry-aged beef tenderloin served with dried longan and fennel are only some of the exquisite dishes awaiting you. Precise flavours, intoxicating aromas, selected products from small producers nestled in the countryside and the mountains (Ton is also the ambassador of slow food in Thailand): nothing is missing.

Take your time, savour the modern, soft-lit and cosy setting, and don't hesitate to ask for detailed explanations from your servers. The wine list is first-rate, and reservations are recommended.
