Have a birthday, anniversary or special occasion coming up? With the number of new cases holding steady in Thailand, we say a small at-home private party is probably the best way to celebrate right now. But just because the party is at your address doesn’t mean you can’t still have fun. As a matter of fact, there’s a number of advantages that come with celebrating at home: safety, convenience and comfort for starters, and with this article, you’ll quickly realize that you won’t even have to compromise on the food.
So without further ado, here’s a list of restaurants and chefs who can help bring the party to your home — from private caterers and homakase (get it?) to family sets to-go and chef’s table.
When she’s not busy organizing events, Pasnee Kornsritipa enjoys cooking for family and friends. What once started as just a hobby has now turned into a full-time side hustle after followers filled her inboxes with questions about how to try her famous Sunday roast, paella and Korean BBQ party set. In 2020, Kornsritipa finally answered their prayers by launching PasneeSoulFeast, a fun and modest chef’s table at her home that transports diners around the world with her varied cuisines.
With the lockdown this year, however, the home chef has moved into personalized catering, delivering feasts directly to customers near dinner time, ready to eat and plated in her very own tableware collection. Choose from her themed dinner sets or create your own menu to fit your every craving.
For the Juban group, it’s all about authenticity and affordability. Since this last wave , the restaurant is offering discounted home omakase courses starting at only THB 1,920 per person; or if you’re looking for something special, 2-Michelin Star Chef Juichi can be at your service for THB 4,500 per person. And for the days you’re not feeling sushi, they’ve also got a soba course for THB 1,500 per person.

With their new home omakase course, you can now enjoy this decadent meal in your own dining room.

Dum Handi Biryani
Indian meals make for some of the best: not only because of how good the food tastes but also because of the sense of community (something we could all probably use right now). Dum Handi Biryani’s celebration menu offers meal sets serving anywhere between 4-10 people at a 20% discount. Enjoy all your favorite Indian classics like the chicken biryani, butter chicken, dal, roti and naan.

Kim Jeong Grill
Everyone loves a good KBBQ session where you’re pretty much obligated to eat till you drop. For better or for worse, Kim Jeong Grill’s new special delivery sets let you do this at home. The sets contain everything from fried chicken, kimchi soup and vegetable wraps to assortments of pork and beef. As an added plus, you can also order beer or soju to go with your meal. Take it from us, you’ll want to order this one on an empty stomach.
