A World-leading Thai Restaurant
Jim Thompson: A Thai Restaurant offers definitive Thai cuisine in a Dempsey Hill heritage venue with a stunning interior designed to surpass any other Thai restaurant in the world.

“Absolutely Thai, Thompson-style”
The restaurant’s distinctive approach is “absolutely Thai, Thompson-style.”

“Absolutely Thai” means the chefs have tested many, many recipes for each classic dish to refine what they believe experienced palettes will judge the very most delicious version.

“Thompson-style” means the cooking, menu and interior all reflect an appealing mix of tradition and innovation, inspired by the founder Jim Thompson’s marvelous taste in designing silk and his famous Bangkok mansion.

A Definitive Menu
More than 80 classic Thai dishes, including appetizers, spicy salads, soups, curries, main dishes, seafood, barbeque, noodles, desserts and more.

Menu is pork-free, with many delicious choices for vegetarians.

A changing menu of specials features innovations by the restaurant’s own chefs and new and traditional dishes from Jim Thompson’s monthly in-house “cooking challenge” contests in Thailand.

The wine list is selected to complement flavourful Thai cuisine. An advanced Italian system keeps eight fine bottles open for order by the glass, half-glass or taste, at various price levels. Bar serves a full range of cocktails.

Non-alcoholic beverages include zesty fruit juice shakes and traditional Siamese herbal drinks.

Kitchen is led by Executive Chef MR.JARUTUS AUMPHA and an expert team of Thai nationals.

Jim Thompson: The Thai Silk Company
The Thai Silk Company was founded in Bangkok in 1950 by the American architect Jim Thompson and six Thai investors. Thompson disappeared mysteriously on vacation in Malaysia in 1967, but his initiative succeeded in reviving Thailand’s craft weaving industry. Today the Thai-owned firm is the world’s largest maker of hand-woven fabrics, with some 3,500 employees in Southeast Asia, Japan and Europe.

Our shops are famous for premium interior textiles and soft furnishings; fashions like classic dresses, scarves, shirts and neckties; and accessories like handbags. These quality products are especially sought by gift buyers. The company’s food and beverage venues are an extension of Jim Thompson’s philosophy of bringing the best of Thai culture to the world.
