Named after H.S.H. Princess Sulabh Valleng Visuddhi, a head cook in the Sukhothai Palace, Thanying Restaurant serves the same type of traditional Thai cuisine the princess prepared in the palace. The eatery is a joint venture between the princess’s son, M.R. Sorut Visuddhi, and famous Thai actor, Kriangkrai Unhanandana. Located inside a former home, the restaurant has three separate dining areas, all of which are decorated with Thai antiques, evoking a royal, aristocratic atmosphere. Menu selections include puu phat phong karii, a dish of crab stir fried in curry powder with eggs, and tom khaa kai, traditional chicken coconut soup.
