Thailand Dinner
Bailliage of Bangkok
Bangkok, May 24, 2019
Experiencing Thai dishes crafted from ancient recipes

 An evening of Thai elegant dining was held at the Michelin-starred Saneh Jaan Restaurant. The reception set the scene with perfectly chilled glasses of Champagne Pierre Baillette le Village Premier Cru Brut.

In a private dining room with vaulted ceilings and contemporary Thai touches, members and guests had an intimate dining experience of Thai dishes crafted from ancient recipes. With the untamed impact from Thai chillies and bold sweet and sour flavours, each dish embarked on its own journey of Thai cuisine.

Vive la Chaîne!
