CHEF CHOM’S THAI RESTAURANT
Chef Chom’s was named after Chef Piengchom Dhadahbanand who was previously a Chef in the Thai Royal household and has trained over 500 chefs and cooks her illustrious career. After many years at The Tongsai Bay she has handed the skills of traditional Thai cuisine down to our current Chef Chom’s kitchen brigade lead by Sous Chef, Chef Nancy. Geographically, Thais generally divide Thailand into four distinct regions: North (Nua), North Eastern (Issarn), Central (Klang) and the South (Dtai). The diversity of climate and topography from the temperate North to the tropical South is vast and therefore the abundance of different produce drives distinct styles and flavors from each region. The focus of Chef Chom’s is to provide traditional Thai cuisine that is authentic to the region in which it originated whilst using the highest quality of ingredients, presented in an eclectic style that draws on different flavors throughout the whole of Thailand.
The name The Butler’s derives from the conception of this warm and cozy restaurant as it was originally built as a Butlers Service center when The Tongsai Villas were first opened. As time went by the service of Butlers was not as in demand as first thought so a restaurant was created and the name stayed. Today The Butler’s is a Tapas and Wine Bar.
Tapas dining is defined as a style of ordering multiple small plates of different foods that is enjoyed with drinks. Paying homage to the traditional yet respecting our global location, our Chef’s created a menu that offers both Mediterranean and Asian influenced tapas while our bar team offer a selection of wines by the glass and bottle and of course jugs of Sangria!
Butler’s is a warm intimate space that can seat up to 26 guests in total and is open only on selected nights, it is therefore highly recommended to book in advance.
