Rustic elegance and cuisine inspired by the rice-based culture of the north define the dining experience at Khu Khao, the resort’s signature restaurant. Khu Khao refers to the threshing baskets used by northern Thai rice farmers in the past, a number of which are cleverly incorporated into the décor of the restaurant’s interior.
Chef Somyot, the resort’s Executive Chef, has created a unique crossroads concept, offering a menu of delicious, healthy and original recipes drawing influence from the greater Lanna region, including northern Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Yunnan, China. Signature dishes such as Khao Raem Fuen Sai Gai Yunnan (Yunnanese rice-curd salad with spicy grilled chicken bean sprouts) and Jin-Loong (Shan-style minced-pork meatballs seasoned with ginger, garlic, shallot and coriander served with rice vermicelli noodles tossed in coconut and spicy peanut sauce) are examples of the delicious variety on offer. Virtually all ingredients are sourced from local, sustainable farms. Guests may choose between the elegantly rustic indoor dining room or outdoor table settings on the terrace and garden, on the banks of the Ping River.
