Chef Benz, cooking Thai cuisine from the heart
With an innate skill for crafting the most exquisite dishes from fresh local fare, Chef Benz’s incredible culinary talents were discovered by Sonu and Eva. At her restaurant Kruua Mae Tuk (Tuk’s Kitchen), tucked away amongst the mangroves of Koh Kood at Soneva Kiri, her magical touch transforms humble ingredients into the finest Thai cuisine.
Cooking from the heart, her unique no-menu concept relies on Benz’s finely-tuned intuition and her ability to source the best local produce, whether freshly picked by gardeners just hours before it is served, or carefully chosen from the local fishermen’s catch of the day.
