Chef Ton puts modern spin on grandma’s recipes at ‘Lahnyai’ in Sathorn

A spinoff of chef Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn’s original Nusara restaurant near Tha Tien, Lahnyai boasts a menu that keeps his grandmother’s recipes alive with a more modern approach. 

Tucked inside the spacious Baan Turtle building – which houses modern German restaurant Keller, the Cloud Wine bar, and a Chef Man chef’s table – Lahnyai’s semi-private space is elaborately decorated with mirrored ceilings, green-tinted walls lined with family photos, embroidered chairs, and tables dotted with romantic floral arrangements.  

The team here presents tasting menus (THB3,590) rooted in reinterpreted family recipes. Examples include traditional Thai desserts loaded with white truffle shavings, a crispy cup filled with scallion mousse and topped with local caviar, and a delicate steamed egg custard with lump crab meat served with caviar and black truffle.

Mains feature a Hokkaido scallop with crab roe and shrimp head sauce, dry-aged duck with a nang roy curry (a royal dish with stuffed peppers), and Nusara’s signature slice of wagyu pad krapao. 

In the mood for more truffle? You can add extra for around THB900 for two grams. 

Lahnyai is located in Soi Suan Phlu 2 in the Sathorn area. Reservations are recommended.
