Out on Rama VI Road in the outer Phaya Thai-slash-Ari environs, Maze serves bold Thai flavors in an elegant setting bursting with teal and gold.

Now, chef Phattanat “May” Thongthong is leaning into her northern heritage. The Chiang Mai native previously studied linguistics before finding her calling in the kitchen. She also participated in a series of cooking competitions that soon made her a household name.  

At Maze, she infuses her creative tasting menu with childhood memories, using western ingredients and techniques to give it new flair. 

Choose between the 10-course “seasonal creative” menu (THB3,900) or the 11-course Northern tasting menu (THB2,900) and savor dishes like larb made with ahi tuna, potato, and caviar, and Maze’s version of nam prik noom (northern green chili relish) served with Hokkaido scallops.

The sai oua here is unlike any other, made with squid and a yogurt aioli, while the khao soi comes in the form of ravioli filled with a vibrant northern curry sauce. 

An a la carte menu is also available, offering both classic creations and dishes with a twist.
