I had a special opportunity to eat at Sorn (ศรณ์), a newly opened fine dining Thai restaurant - the only of its kind in Bangkok specializing in only Southern Thai food. And since Southern Thai food is my personal favorite regional variations of Thai cuisine (my wife is from the South of Thailand), I was very very excited.

Sorn (ศรณ์) Restaurant is set in a beautifully restored home, just on the back side of Phrom Phong. It’s like a museum when you step inside, filled with history of Southern Thailand, the people, food, ingredients, and tools used.

One of the greatest things about Sorn (ศรณ์) and owners and chefs is that they don’t take any shortcuts. All the chili curry pastes, which form the base for many dishes, are pounded by hand, making sure everything has maximum flavor potential. Even the rice is cooked in a claypot, traditional style, that’s very rare to find anymore. Additionally, 99.9% of the ingredients are not just from Thailand, but sourced directly from Southern Thailand. Some of the ingredients are impossible to find in Bangkok, and only seasonally available in a tiny region of Southern Thailand. Chef Yod and Khun Ice have done extensive research and traveling around Thailand sourcing only the best ingredients, and it really shows.

Here are some of the 22 dishes (there were a few other dishes as well that I didn’t include to save time) we ate in this fine dining Southern Thai food experience:

Cashew nut relish (น้ำพริกกากหมู)
Sand mole crabs (จักจั่นทะเล)
2 C° Lobster (กุ้งมังกร 7สี)
Lobster claw and head curry (จอแหร้ง)
Gems on crab stick (กรรชูเปียง)
Grilled southern beef (เนื้อกอและ)

Rice mix (ข้าวยำ)
Grilled chili paste (น้ำชุบพรก)
Yellow curry (แกงเหลือง)
Fish innards curry (แกงไตปลา)
Stink beans and squid (ผัดสะตอ)
Clear soup (แกงจืดลูกรอก)
Grilled crispy pork (คั่วกลิ้งหมูย่าง)
Coconut rice, shrimp curry (ข้าวมันแกง)

Torch ginger flower sorbet (ล้างปาก)
Mutant coconut, ice cream (ไอติมน้ำตาลมะพร้าว)
Fruits and ice (ส้มฉุน)

It was an incredible meal, with some ingredients I had never seen or tried before. What’s unique and fascinating about Sorn (ศรณ์) Restaurant is that they’ve taken Southern Thai food and adapted it into a fine dining environment by sourcing top ingredients, and keeping things traditional while occasionally using modern technique to increase flavor and quality.

It’s a high end, gourmet Thai meal experience, and it was a real treat!

  1. I'm a Southern Thai (well, I live abroad for over 10 years already) yet I've never heard of the first 6 dishes and the last 3 drinks and desserts. All the middle ones are the dishes I normally ate though. But do our Southern Thai Cuisine really have a chance to be haute cuisine with those pungent dishes?

  2. Aloha from Honolulu, Mark. You video is so great that I wish to try it next week with my family! Need reservation for 6 adults and 2 children for dinner on December 25th, if they are open. If not, December 24th is fine. Tried to call them but got a recording in Thai which I don’t understand. Any suggestions?

  3. I've spent about 4 hours watching your videos today! I'm in love with all the rich content and the celebration of cultures! I'm curious as to how much would this resturant experience cost? It's a beautiful restaurant with amazing food and service! Keep making these awesome videos!

  4. Fantastic restaurant cheers to the great Chef….he is a Michaelangelo..I would have worn my best shimmering attire!!..nourriture fantastique j'ai été très heureux…..merci Mark Wiens, ana maria

  5. Mark for the love of God PLEASE stop smacking your lips when you eat and finish chewing your food before you open your mouth and start taking.
