Located in The Halkin Hotel—which bills itself as a “sanctuary of discretion in central London”—Nahm was the first Thai restaurant in England to net a Michelin star. And while David Thompson expands his empire to Thailand itself, Head Chef Matthew Albert maintains a strong menu of traditional Thai dishes that include a wisp of English sensibility, such as braised oxtail or Scottish scallops. The miangs are gritty, tangy, and addictive (of the finger-licking variety), the salads bright and refreshingly pungent, and the curries big and bold, with heat that whips quickly (but doesn’t linger) past the roof of your mouth. The dishes are layered so that you can peel their flavors away, one at a time—or consume them all at once.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Yam Gung Wiset Langoustine Salad, Rambutans, Lemon Grass, and Toasted Coconut
