We had discovered Maïnoï a little over two years ago, almost as if embarking on an adventure. Our feelings were quickly sealed: an absolute favorite and a guaranteed Thai effect. The address is beautiful and displays impeccable decor; an enthusiastic welcome, a smiling professionalism, and high-level Thai cuisine, all to seal the promise of a moment of pure joy. You'll find nothing else but that at Maïnoï.
We find ourselves here with absolute pleasure, and with each visit, beautiful souls and craftsmanship. Tan is a rare individual. Curious about his roots and open to ours, his cuisine continues to elevate. As an example, his black pudding nem from Cuvry farm sounds like an absolute, flavorful and refined, powerful and gentle fusion.
Since then, the place has undergone a lovely recomposition, the open kitchen has moved to the back of the house. And while it still delicately perfumes the place, the understated elegance of the decor has been preserved, avoiding flashy exotic clichés but revealing a pleasant atmosphere, simply.
As enthusiastic and talented lovers, Tan and his family offer a cuisine that transcends clichés and well-trodden paths, bringing back many rare products from their travels to the country; as many nuggets, as many treasures, they invite us on a wonderful journey.
Among the highlights of the place is this nod to Bangkok street food recreated through the noodle cart, a beautiful tradition demands it.
We must also highlight the mastery of the preparations that have seduced us with magnificent Sea knives in red curry, Neua Yang (grilled beef fillet, Thai shallot sauce), or the Khung Yang (grilled prawns, crunchy vegetables and seafood sauce).
A favorite also for the wine cellar overflowing with vinous gems.
We truly, truly love this place.
