At its nightly dinner buffet, diners will be treated to traditional favourites from the land of smiles, as well as traditional Thai music and dances, a lucky draw with nightly prizes and a spectacular grand prize.

Desserts include sagu cantaloupe ma praw orn (sago and cantaloupe with young coconut) and ponlamai kae sa lak ruam (mixed fruit carving).

With more than 30 years of culinary experience, Chef Orn has taken her skills around the world, including to the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Finland, Spain and Hong Kong. “I am so proud to be Thai and I would love to share Thai cuisine to the world. I do love to see when people enjoy the taste of Thai dishes I have made,” she said.
The other chef presenting dishes during the fair will be Chef Thitikamol Vimuktanon, Chef de Partie at Thai Kitchen at The Landmark Bangkok. Chef Thitikamol, originally from Bangkok, has 13 years’ experience in professional cooking and loves to make fruit and vegetable cravings as well as Thai desserts.
