David Thompson, the founder of legendary Thai restaurant Nahm, which had a London outpost at The Halkin hotel from 2001-2012 (during which time it was the first Thai restaurant in Europe to win a Michelin star) and still operates in the COMO Metropolitan in Bangkok (although Thompson is no longer involved) and the inspiration for a generation of chefs cooking Thai food, is coming back to the capital and he’s bringing Long Chim with him.
Long Chim, which has sites in Sydney and Perth, offers a more casual but still authentic take on Thai food, with dishes like sour orange prawn curry, grilled pork neck skewers, red snapper fish cakes, and grilled beef salad with roasted rice. We don’t know when or where Long Chim will be opening but we do know, having just done a three-week stint in Thailand, that we’re excited for it to arrive.
