Jaew Jim Thompson

Culinary masterminds join hands at this new Thai restaurant.

Managed by Farandole Hospitality, the team behind Quince, Luka and Funky Lam, Jaew takes over the former home of Spirit Jim Thompson on Soi Somkid.

The kitchen is now headed by Canadian chef Andrew Martin—formerly of Nahm, Bo.lan, 80/20 and Issaya Siamese Club, and the recipient of Top Tables’ Best Young Chef Award 2017—who brings rare local ingredients to the table. Expect dishes like the Nam Prik Gluay Polamai Ruam (B170), a sweet and sour banana chili relish served with pickled rose apple, and Moo Tom Kati Kanom Jeeb (B360)—curried pork dumplings, grilled pork neck and fresh coconut cream.

Meanwhile, exotic desserts like the Farang Nai Tatad (B220)—pink guava sorbet, chrysanthemum cream, pomelo curd and candied karonda—come courtesy of pastry chef Elle Cowan, previously of Bunker and Ocken.
