The Grand Opening of ‘Kampu By Thai Choice’ at the Asara Villa & Suite Hua Hin You’re looking for an authentic Thailand dining experience. This may be available in a market setting; however you also want luxury, exotic surrounds and personal attention. Perhaps you want to impress an important visitor or you are celebrating with friends or family an occasion demanding something very special. Look no further; at the Grand Opening of ‘Kampu By Thai Choice’ we were offered all this and more at Hua Hin’s latest high class Thai dining venue.
Apart from rubbing shoulders with the ‘rich and famous’, we able to savour exquisite traditional Thai cuisine from individual cooking stations where attention to detail was obvious as well as explanations about the origins, preparation and special ingredients. We had Chef-lead Thai cooking demonstrations ‘on stage’, traditionally costumed dancers and Thai puppetry (Hun Lakron lek).
Elaborately made wooden puppets operated by black- faced ‘anonymous’ puppeteers moved around the dining area offering puppetry up close and personal. My ‘puppet massage’ was so close to the real thing it was hard to resist starting a conversation with the puppet! Then a ‘famous moment’ and entertainment highlight; a performance from Thai heartthrob, Khun Napat Injaieua or Khun ‘Gun’ The Star as he is best known. A star of stage and screen, Khun Gun clearly impressed the ladies in the audience.
Apart from offers of handkerchiefs to help him with the heat of the moment, sighs of admiration were heard in recognition of his hit songs and then an exodus of fans hoping for an autograph opportunity after he departed the stage. Our thanks to Khun Preecha Yarangwong, Asara Group General Manager and his staff; all dressed for the occasion in traditional dress. So many beautiful people on hand to welcome us and offer a taste of things to come at Kampu By Thai Choice. Our bet is that this new dining venue will soon feature on Award Lists alongside Thailand’s finest. Where: Kampu By Thai Choice Restaurant, on the beachfront at the Asara Villa & Suite, Soi 5 Hua Hin.
