Incorporating mouth-watering flavors of the Orient, fresh farm ingredients, and a range of rich spices and herbs, Thai Cuisine is known for its delicious combination of flavors, and also for paying strict scrutiny to elements such as presentation, aroma, and complementarily with other dishes.


A dish which is popular in most Southeast Asian nations is Tom Yam. Literally translating to ‘boiling hot and sour soup’, Tom Yam is a thick and delicious broth like soup which is packed with an assortment of rich and wholesome flavors. Known for its signature aroma, Tom Yam is so popular in Thailand that it is served both at fancy restaurants and at street-food joints.
