Krua Supanniga by Khunyai restaurant was later introduced in 2012 as a natural extension to the Supanniga Home hotel. At Krua Supanniga by Khunyai, the Laorauvirodge’s family recipes, all authentic and all Thai, were served to the hotel’s guests who sought to have a Thai gastronomic experience. The restaurant was in fact an homage to the Laorauvirodge family’s khunyai (grandmother) whose very recipes, a combination of eastern Thai and northeastern (Isan) styles, are used in the restaurant.
In 2013, Khunyai’s recipes were brought to Bangkok with the opening of Supanniga Eating Room in Thonglor. The restaurant caters to diners who long for authentic Thai food that not only tastes great, but also gives them a sense of connection to the food’s true origin. Thanaruek Laoraovirodge, one of Supanniga Eating Room’s founders, described, “Supanniga Eating Room is our ordinary family dining room where delicious and familiar flavours have been had for eighty years. The recipes have now been transported to the contemporary context, perfect for Bangkok.”
The Bangkok restaurant has since received such recognitions as “Thailand Tatler’s Best Restaurant’s 2014” from Thailand Tatler magazine, and “Top Tables 2014” from BK magazine among others. Supanniga Eating Room Thonglor was also recommended by CNN Travel in Insider Guide: Best of Bangkok. In 2015, the restaurant’s second Bangkok branch opened in Sathorn 10, a strategic central location accessible from every part of central Bangkok.
Supanniga Cruise is the latest venture from the same team that brought Supanniga Eating Room to Bangkok. Combining three exquisite elements of Thai culture: the authentic Thai food, the genuine hospitality, and the majestic view of the Chao Phraya River, Supanniga Cruise promises to offer a remarkable enjoyment of the famous historical river, unmatched by any other cruises.
