Our Story

Welcome to E-Sarn Thai Cuisine, a small family of restaurants originally set up by Achara (or Neng, as she is known to regulars). The original restaurant (E-Sarn Thai Cuisine at Sixth Avenue) had its humble beginnings as a hawker stall named "Neng's Kitchen" in Farrer Road Market. Today, you will still find the same delicious home-style Thai food prepared by native Thai chefs, who are hand-picked and trained by Neng herself.

E-Sarn - also known as Isan or Isaan - is the Northeast region of Thailand and is famous for its culinary delicacies. The most notable characteristics of E-Sarn cuisine are the use of Khao Neow (Sticky Rice) rather than plain rice, as well as fiery chillies. Popular dishes include Som Tum (Papaya Salad), Larb (Minced Meat Salad) and Gai Yang (Grilled Chicken). These wonderful flavours have all spread to other parts of Thailand, favoured as everyday dishes the locals enjoy!
