NIPA THAI MasterChef Finalist Pop Up Event

The award-winning restaurant Nipa Thai will be hosting an exclusive four-course dinner, with dishes themed inspired by a beautiful poem written by King Rama II. The menu has been created by MasterChef finalist Nawamin Boss Pinpathomrat and Nipa Thai Head Chef Sanguan Parr.

There will be two pop up evenings on Wednesday 25 and Thursday 26 September 2019. Guests will be welcomed with a delicious Thai cocktail and canapés in Park Restaurant, followed by a four course menu of sharing platters. Thai winery, Monsoon Valley Vineyard will offer a tasting flight to match the food. The dinner is priced at £75 per head, plus drinks.

The pop up will run in two sittings: the first sitting will run from 6-8pm, and the second sitting from 8-10pm.

Nawamin made it through to the MasterChef finals in 2018, impressing the chefs with his dishes. Nawamin is a postdoctoral scientist at the University of Oxford and a MasterChef finalist. Growing up in a traditional Thai household, his mother passed on her cooking knowledge to Nawamin and his brothers. Nawamin also lived with his grandmother, his greatest cooking influence, who helped him fall in love with cooking.

Nawamin said: “Royal Thai cuisine is elegant and flavourful.  The preparation is incredibly technical to ensure all the dishes deserve to be on the table for the royal members. The Royal Coronation of King Rama X clearly shows how Thai traditions are still influenced by the Royal family.”

Nipa Thai is situated on the first floor of mid-century icon Lancaster London.  Providing unrivalled views across Hyde Park, the restaurant is renowned as one of London’s best Thai establishments using original Thai ingredients. Nipa Thai offers a holistic experience from the all female Thai kitchen brigade.

Nipa Thai has received the prestigious “Thai Select” award from the Thai Government for its authentic cuisine.  This accolade is presented to Thai restaurants proven to have achieved the highest standards of quality.  The 55-seat restaurant features a teak panelled interior with traditional Thai furnishings, and ornate decorations crafted in Thailand.  The authentic décor complements the cuisine which is served by Thai staff.

The restaurant delivers outstanding traditional cuisine that combines hot spices with mild and sweet flavours, offering a mix of dishes from Thailand’s central region.  Each of the dishes is prepared by the Head Chef Sanguan Parr and her dedicated team according to traditional recipes.

Head Chef Sanguan Parr was born in Thailand and moved to the UK in 1984. She has been working in Nipa for 16 years since starting out as an Administrative Chef, and later working as Sous Chef for the past 6 years. The service is overseen by Nipa Thai’s Restaurant Manager, Kaseam Jongpitakrat.

NOTE: Royal Lancaster London’s sister hotel in Thailand, Lancaster Bangkok will also be welcoming Nawamin on 30 and 31 August 2019, from 8pm.  Within the Siam Brasserie he will be creating a sensational 5-course menu with a pre-dinner drink and wine pairings for only 4,500thb per head.
