Taking its name from the Thai word ‘Paii’ (พาย, which means to paddle, the signature restaurant at The House on Sathorn presents the best of local and imported seafood while honouring the legacy of the founder of The House on Sathorn, Luang Sathorn Rajayutka, who created Sathorn Canal.
With a home inside one of Bangkok’s most recognisable food and drinks venues, Paii Chef de Cuisine Joe Weeraket presents a menu bursting with flavour. Highlights include the local Giant River Prawn, char-grilled and served with “choo chee” curry sauce; the French Razor Clams, flambéed table-side with house-made XO sauce; and the French Turbot, stuffed with lemongrass, shallots and kaffir lime leaves and baked in a thick Thai herb salt crust. Diners will not want to miss the Giant Crab Fried Rice, made with organic jasmine rice from Nakhon Pathom. The plate is designed for sharing and topped with no less than half a kilo of freshly steamed Surat Thani mud crab meat.
The House on Sathorn opened in 2015 after an extensive renovation carried out by Thailand’s Fine Arts Department. The interior design of Paii retains the opulence of its gilded past while modern elements, including contemporary Thai artwork such as tapestries, paintings, photography and sculpture, come into play, injecting modern vibrancy into old world glamour.
“We’re delighted to bring this new dining concept to The House on Sathorn,” said Ms. Tina Liu, General Manager, W Bangkok. “With its storied past and inclusion into W Hotel Bangkok, this striking heritage home is a unique juxtaposition of old and new, and the addition of Paii and its modern Thai seafood is the perfect culinary match.”
Paii offers indoor and outdoor dining. Paii is temporarily open Wednesday – Sunday for lunch and dinner from 12PM to 9PM. Operating hours are subject to change due to local guidelines and restriction. The restaurant also features a bar for an enticing mix of crafted seasonal cocktails, cutting-edge sounds and tempting bites.
