David Thompson is a widely acclaimed expert on Thai food. His research into Thai culinary techniques and ancient recipes—brought to the public in cookery books and award-winning restaurants has led to a greater appreciation of Thai food outside of Thailand. In 2000 David was approached by hotelier Christina Ong to open a restaurant in London. Nahm was launched at the Halkin hotel in July 2001 to great critical acclaim. Fay Maschler of the London Evening Standard gave Nahm her highest scoring. She wrote: “David Thompson produces dishes more sagacious, undulating, bewitching and boisterous than any you will find even in Thailand” In 2002 nahm was awarded a Michelin star—the first Thai restaurant ever to be recognized with this accolade, which it maintains to the day. In August 2010 David opened a new restaurant, again called nahm, at the Metropolitan Hotel in Bangkok.

Thompson says: ‘My aim is to cater to locals. I'll use some old favourites from London, such as ma hor. But many—in fact, most—of the dishes here are new. For me as a cook this latest project couldn’t be more exciting. Bangkok allows me to cook for Thais in Thailand. I will prepare and cook intensely flavoured dishes attuned to ingredients that simply cannot be found outside of the country. The whole place will be more relaxed than my London restaurant—much as the Thais are themselves.’
