You Must Order: It’s not on the regular menu, but the Crab and Betal Leave Wrap is one of the best things you may ever eat. The sweetness of the crab is complemented, not overpowered, by An’s spicy touch.
Need to Know … from Executive Chef Lucais Syme of La Pentola della Quercia: ”Always impecable balance to the dishes. Great use of interesting ingredients and presentation. Flavours are soothing and refreshing. Satisfying all senses.”

Journalist Kasey Wilson: “Angus An does for Thai food at Maenam what Vikram Vij does for Indian cuisine at Vij’s — both layer and balance intense flavours with vibrant seasonings. Must try: the ‘otherworldly’ Mussamen braised beef curry and eight-spice crispy ling cod.”
