Benz at Soneva Kiri Resort

The tale of Thai chef Khun Jirapa Kaosarang -or Khun Benz as she is known – is a remarkable one of fate and good fortune. Her restaurant is located in a classic wooden Thai structure stilted amongst the mangroves encircling Klong Yai Kee waterfall, in the heart of Koh Kood. Yet Benz’s cuisine was brought to the attention of the international jet-set thanks to Gwyneth Paltrow describing her food as one of the most exquisite meals she can remember. With a ‘9-course menu’ dining concept, Chef Benz’s vast selection of Thai dishes is inspired by locally produced ingredients, with seafood sourced from fishermen nearby.
