Baan Rim Naam sits in Talat Noi, one of Bangkok’s most popular destinations for its winding, narrow alleys between shophouses and local foods. Talat Noi is located on the southern edges of Chinatown and is adjacent to the river. Walking through it, you can find hidden gems like the ancient Sol Heng Tai mansion, the famous Duck Noodle House (Ped Toon Chao Tha) for your poultry delights, the unmissable food fair of the Vegetarian Festival every October, and more. Now Baan Rim Naam has been added to the mix, further strengthening the neighborhood’s arsenal of growing attractions.
Baan Rim Naam is the magnificent doing of Florian Gypser and Goy Siwaporn, a duo famous for creating Nang Gin Kui, one of Bangkok’s premier private kitchens. Years after running their dining table out of their living room, the two have now opened Baan Rim Naam. The setting is one of the last remaining warehouses that was constructed during the reign of Rama II in early 1800s on the Chao Phraya River’s edge. Since its launch, Florian and Goy have since hosted several events in the space, including those for Bangkok Design Week and the community of Talat Noi. However, Baan Rim Naam’s main draw is its intimate dining experience.
Every Wednesday to Sunday evening, ten spots are open for reservation for a 4-hour “meet & greet” type of communal dinner. You and your loved ones will be treated with the carefully crafted cuisine infused with the personal touch of a small team. The course includes Thai tapas, home-crafted cocktails, and classic Thai dishes. There is no formal dress code and guests are welcomed as they are and encouraged to come with an open stomach and heart. The hosts will draw you into conversations, turn strangers into friends, all the while feeding you an unforgettably delectable meal as you listen to meaningful conversations and gentle river waves.
