KOYN Thai Is Opening in Mayfair This Summer

Samyukta Nair (the restaurateur who spearheads KOYN, Mimi Mei Fair, Jamavar, Socca and more) has a new concept in the works

Just under two years after opening the doors to modern izakaya KOYN, Samyukta Nair is growing her restaurant empire once again with a new Thai spot set to launch this June. KOYN Thai will take over the basement space of KOYN’s Grosvenor Street location, with Paris-based chef Rose Chalalai Singh heading up the kitchen.

Rose, who’s known for her eponymous restaurant Rose Kitchen in Paris, will serve up a menu inspired by the cuisines of various regions across Thailand, with some dishes cooked over open fire. Expect the likes of:

  • Toasted coconut pomelo salad
  • Wild garlic, green chilli & Thai basil ‘escargots’
  • A Chiang Mai platter with spicy homemade pork sausage, capsicum nam prik, sticky rice and crackling pork skin
  • River prawn choo chee
  • Southern Thai crab curry with Wildbetal Leafbush.

That’s all we’re getting for now, but we’ll be keeping you updated with more info as it comes.
