Meet the chef
Chef On Saengyojanr
With over 30 years’ experience garnered in kitchens across Asia and Melbourne, On Saengyojanr began her cooking apprenticeship as a young girl, working in her Aunt’s restaurant in Bangkok preparing herbs and learning about the complexities and subtleties inherent in traditional Thai cuisine from her mother and grandmother.
Since her childhood was spent growing up in family-run restaurants in Thailand, Saengyojanr has come a long way to her current role as Head Chef at Crown Melbourne’s riverside restaurant GING THAI.
Since 1997, Saengyojanr has been instrumental in bringing the best Thai food to Crown across its restaurants, events and VIP business, including her time leading the kitchen at Crown Melbourne’s Long Chim restaurant for the last two years.
