Considered one of the world’s greatest chefs, David Thompson is widely recognised as an authority on Thai cuisine and culture, taking inspiration from the street food and local markets of Bangkok. David’s flagship restaurant in Bangkok, Nham was ranked number 28 by the World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2017
The Bangkok-based chef’s respect for traditional Thai dishes, as well as his skill in cooking them, has won him an international array of admirers. Irreverent and self-deprecating as he is, David Thompson doesn’t really do earnest or heartfelt, but when it comes to the cooking of Thai food, the highly respected chef could not be more serious.
"The streets of Bangkok are the part of Thai culture I love the most. You'll find most Thais prefer to eat in the markets and on the streets – and it’s where you’ll find me too. With Long Chim we wanted to capture all the madness and excitement and deliciousness of the streets. It’s designed to be fun and entertaining, with dishes that everyone loves” – David Thompson
