Windsor Plaza Hotel is presenting the best Thailand has to offer on April 19 - 28 at its Café Central An Đông during the Thai Culinary and Cultural Fair. At its nightly dinner buffet, diners will be treated to traditional favourites from the land of smiles, as well as traditional Thai music and dance, a lucky draw with nightly prizes, and a spectacular grand prize.

Two guest chefs from Thailand will attend the culinary and cultural event to prepare a special menu of dishes from their homeland.

With more than 30 years of culinary experience, Chef de Cuisine Bang-Orn Narkrung from The Landmark Bangkok has taken her skills around the world, including the UK, Canada, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Finland, Spain and Hong Kong. “I am so proud to be Thai and I would love to share Thai cuisine with the world. I love to see people enjoy the taste of Thai dishes I’ve made,” she said.

Chef Thitikamol Vimuktanon, Chef de Partie at Thai Kitchen at The Landmark Bangkok, will also be presenting dishes at the fair. Chef Thitikamol, originally from Bangkok, has 13 years of experience as a professional cook and loves to make fruit and vegetable carvings as well as Thai desserts.

Another attraction of the event will be entertainment activities provided by a traditional art troupe of 15 dancers who will perform a special welcome dance nightly from 7pm, followed by traditional Thai dances such as Fon lep (fingernail dance), Fon Sao Mai (silk weaving dance), and Ram Si Phak (four regions dance).

The restaurant will also be decorated with a spectacular entrance arch modeled on traditional Thai architecture, while Thai flags and other decorations will adorn the dining room.

There will also be booths present at the fair where guests can purchase traditional Thai products or Thailand travel packages.

There will be three different buffet menus presented on a rotating basis. Some of the classic Thai dishes available in the buffet include goong fu (crispy shrimp spicy salad), tom yum goong (traditional spicy Thai soup with prawns), hor mok pla (steamed fish with curry paste) and nuer pad pong karee (stir-fried beef with curry). Must tries for the desserts include sagu cantaloupe ma praw orn (sago and cantaloupe with young coconut) and ponlamai kae sa lak ruam (mixed fruit carving).

The Thai Culinary and Cultural Fair is proudly sponsored by The Landmark Bangkok, Thai Airways International, Amazing Thailand and Natural Tourist.

The special buffet will be available Monday-Friday for VNĐ698,000++ per person including free flow of draught beer, juice and soft drinks, and on Saturday and Sunday for VNĐ798,000++ including free flow of sparkling wine, draught beer, juice and soft drinks.
