OUR TEAM

The team at The Spice Market is led by the charismatic Chef Warinthorn Sumrithphon. She first joined Anantara as an intern 17 years ago, and has been with us ever since. Chef Warinthorn personally sources our fine ingredients – Thai-French beef from the Northeast, river prawns from the Gulf of Thailand, coconut from nearby Baan Phaew, and butterfly pea from the award-winning Suan Samphran. Her attention to detail makes The Spice Market the best authentic Thai restaurant in Bangkok.

Warinthorn Sumrithphon

Spice Market Chef - Anantara Siam Bangkok

Warinthorn Sumrithphon began her career as a chef at Spice Market 17 years ago and has been at the restaurant ever since.

Chef Warinthorn started her formal training as a chef in 1997 at an esteemed institute in Bangkok and in various five-star hotel kitchens across the city. She then attended Dusit Thani College in Bangkok and gained a Bachelor of Business Administration in Kitchen and Restaurant Management during which she was introduced to Spice Market via work experience in the kitchen. She eventually joined the restaurant on a full-time basis on the completion of her studies.

She says the ‘secret’ to Spice Market, which has been in operation now for more than 36 years, is attention to detail. “We pay attention to everything. We anticipate food trends and stay on top of them – delighting our repeat customers is so important.”

While she has kept the traditional dishes the restaurant became famous for, she adds subtle changes, sometimes including unexpected ingredients to keeping the menu current. Designated staff trainer and dedicated to the restaurant and kitchen, Chef Warinthorn is the perfect representative of Spice Market’s blend of Thai hospitality and charm.

Chef Warinthorn has seen Spice Market receive certificates of excellence in the Thai cuisine category from Bangkok Best Dining and Entertainment Magazine for several consecutive years, while on TripAdvisor the restaurant has been voted “Most Delicious Thai Restaurant in Bangkok” by the city’s residents – deserved praise for both restaurant and chef.

Ali Haider

Indian Chef - Anantara Siam Bangkok

Adding a touch of elegance and modernity to traditional Indian dining, Spice Market reflects home cooking and warm hospitality. Under internationally-trained chef Ali Haider, the restaurant’s Indian menu explores regional cuisines through the pungency of freshly ground spices, traditional recipes, and refined presentation.

From fluffy biryanis and other classic Indian fare to modern versions of beloved dishes and rarer regional viands, all dishes on the menu allow for an adjustable level of heat, so that guests unaccustomed to fiery Indian spices can enjoy the full range of flavours and textures.

Adventurous diners can venture beyond butter chicken and explore the decadent side of Indian cuisine with a selection of eye-appealing desserts that push the envelope. These delightful sweet creations in pastel shades offer an international manifestation of Indian flavours.
