At Samrub Samrub Thai, diners will get the feel of dining and drinking at an old friend’s house. Ensconced in a secluded residential area of Charoen Krung, behind a garage to be exact, the restaurant is an unassuming, welcoming quarter – calling it a chef’s table might be more appropriate than calling it a restaurant.
The masterminds behind Samrub Samrub Thai are husband Prin Polsuk, the head chef who is also the protégé of David Thompson behind the Nahm fame, and wife Thanyaporn “Mint” Jarukittikun, who helms the front of house, co-directs the menu, and sources seasonal ingredients from a close network of suppliers and artisans.
Drawing inspiration from rare recipes and Thai culinary traditions, with a strong emphasis on seasonal ingredients, Polsuk whips up innovative Thai food from uniquely different angles. While the menu keeps changing, adapting to the season, selected favourites stay. One of these is the Regency Kapow, a traditional Thai stir-fry dish enhanced with a touch of Regency pineapple brandy.
