Bangkok’s nahm Restaurant Picked for the First Grand Gelinaz Shuffle

June, 2015

COMO’s acclaimed restaurant is the only Thailand establishment chosen for the international event

On July 9th, nahm — the awardwinning destination restaurant located at Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok — is taking part in the first ever Grand Gelinaz Shuffle, which sees 37 of the world’s most respected and creative culinary talent participate in a unique global restaurant 'swap'.

As part of this, David Thompson, nahm’s head chef, will be leaving his kitchen and offering it to a mystery chef — whose identity will only be revealed on July 9th. The chef will travel to Thailand three days before the event to prepare for their eight-course menu, using the products and inspiration they find.

nahm, named the number one restaurant in Asia by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna in 2014, has been a leader in authentic Thai cuisine since it opened in September 2010, incorporating the country’s traditional flavours — hot, sweet, sour and salty — into modern dishes with surprising twists.

The Grand Gelinaz Shuffle dinner at nahm takes place on July 9th 2015 from 7.30pm until 10.30pm. For more information and reservations of the dinner, please visit
