The Local

Thai - $$$


The Markawat family has been in the restaurant business for a few decades, with long-standing establishments Oam Thong and Naj under their Bangkok dining belts.

Championing old family recipes -- the family has roots in Ratchburi, as well as Trang -- the place is a tribute to Thai culinary history.

Original and authentic local Thai food is at the heart of The Local. Customers will be delighted with an array of delectable local Thai specialties. Each dish is carefully cooked with love according to a secret family recipe handed down over generations using the finest local ingredients from every region of Thailand.
The Local brings to life long lost recipes lost to present-day urbanites, allowing a glimpse into familiar flavours from the past. These tastes will make you appreciate real Thai cuisine made by real Thai chefs, or, as they are referred to in Thai, mothers of the kitchen.
"A Place Where You Can Experience Authentic Thai Taste in Every Spoonful."

The two-house space has a small reception area with old kitchen relics and Thailand’s oldest published cookbook on display. The private dining rooms have décor themes paying homage to the reign of Rama V and the heyday of the Damnoen Saduak floating market.

While classics such as khao soi and fish cakes are available, we recommend the more rare, slow-cooked dishes, such as the gaeng lun juan (spicy beef tendon in a shrimp paste curry) and lon kathi (spicy white herbal curry).

There's also a solid Thai-inspired cocktail list.
