Nutritious, seductive, completely satisfying - the Metropolitan's cuisine is a Bangkok essential
With a Michelin star for his Thai restaurant in London, Australian chef David Thompson is a worldclass talent when it comes to the finest nunces of this explosive, flavourful cuisine. At nahm Bangkok (opening in July 2010), diners can expect proper Thai food done really well in warmly contemporary environs.
The dishes are like the food eaten at home-relaxed, generous and authentic, combining juice and spice, sweet and sour. Menus showcase some of the best market-fresh produce in the world, all carefully put together by Thompson and his experienced team.
For breakfast and healthy all-day dining, Glow serves COMO Shambhala's signature wellness cuisine while the Met Bar features modern Asian dishes in club-like environs, every plate that emerges from our kitchens overseen by another talented Australian, Executive Chef Chris Miller.
David Thompson, famed for Michelin-starred nahm restaurant at The Halkin hotel in London, will be opening his first restaurant in Bangkok this Summer. Serving authentic Thai food, this major new address for the capital will be popular with both hotel guests and Bangkok residents.

Bar staff create innovative cocktails while headline DJs spin eclectic lounge sounds from around the world. All this is enjoyed under moody lighting and amidst the company of like-minded sybarites
