TAAN restaurant, 5 mins walking distance from BTS Sky Train, National Stadium station. The restaurant located on the 25th Floor of Siam@Siam Design Hotel & Spa, this first Thai rooftop restaurant serves new tasting menu in the fine casual dining style and I am here tonight to explore this unique journey.
The team welcomed me with the stunning panoramic sunset view of Bangkok. Yes, I’ve heard about the restaurant and Chef Monthep “Thep” Kamolsilp, who’s been curating all of his cooking and traveling experiences and put them into each and every single element of his dishes.
At TAAN, Chef Thep draws on his extended experience cooking international cuisine, but in doing so he hopes to retain the distinctive characteristics of Thai food – something which he admits is quite a test for him. Chef Thep led his team to create an awe-inspiring array of dishes in keeping with the restaurant’s concept.
Not just serving the enjoyable Thai food to both locals and visitors, his goals are also to inspire others for the mindful consuming for their own health and the quality of future society. Hardly heard ‘Proud to be Thai’, he wishes everyone to earn the recognition they deserved and be proud of themselves – from the farmers, the producers, the distributors, the culinary persons, and the diners who are the part of transforming the food chain in Thailand to the better and the more sustainable place.
The Uncommon (แปลกหน้า), Reimagining Thai wisdom through new perspectives tasting menu which kicked off recently and it will be available till end of February 2023. After that, Chef Monthep will come up with new chapter of new tasting menu, please stay tune!
I will not tell you all details about each dishes, or as I want you to go through each of them, just go with the flow and feel it , experience the whole experience by self. My suggestion, you should take beverages paring with your dining journey.
To conclude about my total experience, I love the place, I really appreciated how the team made guest to feel their dishes, sincerity and friendly services. I was very impressed.
I will definitely come back for the next season tasting menu for sure!
