nahm at COMO Metropolitan Bangkok is proud to announce it has been awarded One Michelin Star from the Michelin Guide Thailand for the second year in a row. nahm has been under the guidance of Chef Pim Techamuanvivit since May 2018, and her new dishes have stayed true to nahm’s original vision of authentic Thai cuisine, while also bringing a renewed focus on closer relationships with farmers and artisan food producers across Thailand to ensure only the most exceptional produce makes it onto menus.
Signature dishes on Chef Pim’s new menu include appetizers such as the Blue Swimmer Crab, Coriander and Picked Garlic on Rice Crackers with Peanuts as well as the Miang of Lobster, Chicken, green Mango, Snake Fruit and Herbs served on Thong-Lang Leaves.
Main courses include the Ember-grilled rice with Sampran Farm Pork and Banana Blossom petals served with Seasoned Crispy Fish. Another firm favourite being the Chiang Mai Larp of Pigeon tossed with Herbs and Crisp Alliums, served with fresh vegetables.
A Bangkok native, Pim gave up her Silicon Valley career to pursue her passion for cooking. Her blog ‘Chez Pim’ was an instant success when it launched in 2003 and voted as one of the most influential food blogs in the world by The Guardian (UK). Pim realised her dream of becoming a chef in 2014 with the launch of her first restaurant ‘Kin Khao’ in San Francisco, which won international acclaim. ‘Kin Khao’ received its first Michelin star the following year. Pim attributes her cuisine to Thai culture and Thai women, who have a deep-rooted tradition in passing on their skills and recipes to the next generation.
nahm’s main space has a warm, honeyed glow with inspiration drawn from Thailand’s fourteenth to eighteenth-century Ayutthaya period. Hence the textured rusty-red brick-stepped columns reminiscent of Ayutthaya temples, and the hand-crafted wooden screens. Every design detail has been attended to, including the tableware. The handpicked selection includes Benjarong bowls from Thai Artisan ‘Pinsuwan Benjarong’ and Celadon plates from local manufacturer ‘Mengrai Kilns’.
The Michelin Guide considers all the elements that make up the restaurant experience, including service. This award is therefore a credit to our team of highly trained staff — all of whom are dressed in Comme des Garçons, many of them loyal to nahm since its founding in September 2010.
General Manager of COMO Metropolitan Bangkok, Rohaan Chandra, states: “We are honoured to be awarded One Michelin star for the second year in a row. It is a credit to the entire team at nahm, from the front of house to our kitchen, now headed up by Chef Pim, that we have maintained our role as leaders in authentic Thai cuisine. “
