Chef Nutth

Nutth is a foodie, restaurateur, chef, and licensed guide with a passion for Thai cuisine. He’s been in the game for over 20 years and what he doesn’t know about Thai food isn’t worth knowing. Join him on his epic nightly food feast in Bangkok.

Don’t leave the fate of your taste buds to chance… go straight for Bangkok’s culinary jugular. Join Chef Nutth on his epic nightly food feast around the city’s maze of alleys to taste hidden street eats you’d never find alone. Trust us, the pad Thai on Khao San Road is nothing to write home about. Gorge on lemongrass infused mussels, rich peanut satay with grilled coconut chicken and ajat relish, the best Thai curry in Bangkok, and over a dozen more lip-smackingly good things.

Kicking off as the afternoon cools, eat your way through the labyrinth of backstreets, ending on a sugary high along the main strip of Yaowarat Road in all its neon glory. 

*Sorry veggies, this one isn’t for you, but stay tuned for a meat-free Bangkok food tour coming soon.

**Street food vendors take time off too, so we can’t promise every tour will be the same, but fear not, the night will always be packed with good stuff.

Having been to this city many times I have never done a tour like this and it has opened my eyes and my belly to the tastes and different "street" food available, if you know where to look. Chef Nutth was generous with his knowledge and passion for giving you a real insight into the back lanes and food stalls of Bangkok Chinatown."
