David Thompson, who brought us Nahm in Bangkok and Long Chim in Singapore will formally receive the Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award at Asia's 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony on the 29th of February 2016 at the W Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand.
Mr. Thompson, stated that he is honored to receive the award and that he "still has that same innocent timeless pleasure in cooking as when [he] first started."
He thanked his partner and countless others who have helped him understand the complex and sophisticated Thai cuisine and went on to say that to "receive an award that might acknowledge what for [him] is a pleasure is indeed a double delight".
