Style/Ambiance: Learn to cook authentic Thai cuisine with chefs Dylan Jones and Thai-born Bo Songvisava at a private lesson for up to ten people in the Bo.lan restaurant’s kitchens.
Dylan and Bo trained under David Thompson at the Michelin-starred Nahm restaurant in London and produce traditional Thai dishes with contemporary twists. Like its cuisine, Bo.lan’s interior opts for authenticity and rejects clichéd Thai design. Located in an antique residential house Bo.lan showcases carefully selected traditional Thai items including kra-dongs (woven shallow baskets). Bo.lan has one private room for 15-20 people or the entire restaurant can be hired exclusively.
