Founded in 2018, Nara Thai Cuisine made its Filipino debut at SM Megamall, quickly captivating patrons with its delectable offerings. The restaurant boasts a cozy ambiance that can accommodate up to 60 diners, creating an intimate setting to indulge in the culinary treasures of the Land of Smiles. 

Nara Thai Cuisine has steadily expanded in the Philippines, opening a location in Molino. A third branch is set to open its doors later this year in BGC, further expanding its culinary footprint.

What sets Nara Thai Cuisine apart is its unyielding commitment to authenticity. Every base sauce and marinade used in their dishes is imported from Thailand, ensuring that the same quality and flavors enjoyed in Bangkok are mirrored here in the Philippines. 

Not content with just ingredients, Nara Thai Cuisine embraces the techniques that make Thai cuisine an art form. It’s the marriage of these authentic ingredients and techniques that infuse each dish with distinct flavors that transports diners to the heart of Thailand.

With a menu that mirrors the offerings of its Thai counterparts, Nara Thai Philippines promises an unparalleled culinary voyage. From the invigorating Tom Yum Goong soup, a harmonious blend of spicy, lemongrass, and lime, to the irresistibly delicious Kang Kiew Wan Gai, a Green Curry Chicken with just the right amount of heat, the restaurant leaves no stone unturned in ensuring each dish is an embodiment of authenticity and flavor.

Of course, no Thai meal is complete without a delightful dessert. The Thai Summer Mix, reminiscent of the beloved halo-halo, features a medley of flavors and textures, while Tako adds a touch of familiarity with its similarity to the Philippines’ maja blanca. And for those seeking refreshment, Nara Thai Cuisine’s lemongrass iced tea and Thai iced tea are perfect companions, cleansing the palate between each flavorful dish. 

Nara Thai Cuisine’s dedication to authenticity transcends even the smallest details. From the exclusive plates that are specially crafted for the restaurant to the careful choice of colors that adorn them, every aspect of the dining experience is thoughtfully curated to create an immersive journey into Thai culture and cuisine.

Originating from Bangkok, Nara Thai Cuisine is not merely a restaurant; it’s a celebration of Thai culinary heritage and culture. With branches spanning from Hong Kong to Myanmar, Mumbai, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Manila, Nara Thai Cuisine’s international presence speaks volumes about its commitment to sharing the essence of Thai food and culture.
