Brand new on Phuket.

Ultra-luxurious hotel brand Aman celebrates its 30th anniversary with a new Japanese restaurant, Nama, at its original Amanpuri resort on Phuket.

With a name meaning “raw” in Japanese, the restaurant serves an extensive list of sushi and sashimi, alongside grilled dishes. All the food is prepared by Japan-native chef Keiji Matoba, who has worked at five-star hotels like the Ritz-Carlton Osaka, Okura Tokyo and Amsterdam, and The Chedi Andermatt in the Swiss Alps.

One star dish is the Kobe gyu (B2,500), a Kobe wagyu steak grilled over charcoal at your table and served with moshio mineral salt, a seaweed-infused salt that has been produced by the same method for nearly 2,500 years.
