Nusara in Bangkok is a fine dining restaurant led by Chef Thitid "Ton" Tassanakajohn, a notable figure in Bangkok's culinary scene. The restaurant, named after Chef Ton's grandmother, is a tribute to her influence on his culinary passion and offers a sophisticated take on traditional Thai cuisine using modern techniques and presentations.

Chef Ton trained at the Culinary Institute of America and worked in esteemed restaurants like Eleven Madison Park, The Modern, and Jean-Georges. He aims to elevate Thai cuisine to a level comparable to high-class Western cuisine, challenging the perception that Thai food is merely street food. Nusara reflects this philosophy by offering a fine dining experience that showcases the complexity and elegance of Thai dishes.

Located near the Wat Pho temple, the restaurant features a 12-course tasting menu in an intimate dining room that seats only 10 guests. The menu includes innovative dishes like crab curry with local caviar and Wagyu beef with chili and cumin, presented with a modern twist on family recipes

The restaurant's setting combines the glamour of Old Town Bangkok with modern touches, making it a unique dining venue
Nusara has quickly gained recognition, placing highly on Asia's 50 Best Restaurants list, and is praised for its private, exclusive dining experience and the personal touch added by the brother duo, Chef Ton and his brother Tam, who is also the sommelier.
