OUR MENU

Thai meals are best enjoyed when dishes are shared amongst family and friends. Traditionally, each dish should contribute to the balance of four main styles: hot, sour, sweet and salty. Maenam offers a selection of dishes from each style of dish, designed to enrich your Thai dining experience. Chef An's dishes are based on traditional Thai recipes, with innovative twists that allow for local, sustainably harvested, organic ingredients whenever possible.
