Cape and Kantary Hotels is proud to announce it is to open a restaurant in mid-December at its Samui property, Cape Fahn

Long dtai is the name of the restaurant and it means ‘heading south’ which is exactly what David Thompson will be doing.

David Thompson is an Australian chef with a Thai heart. He is regarded as a world authority on Thai food. He has several restaurants around the world though perhaps is best known for establishing nahm in Bangkok. 

David is working with Tirawan Taechaubol, Group Project Development Manager of all the Cape and Kantary Hotels, to set up this new restaurant. 

“I walked onto Cape Fahn island and didn’t want to leave. It is so enchanting and so beautiful. As I sat on the terrace of the restaurant I began to think of how to achieve just that. A restaurant as inviting and relaxed as the resort itself is.’

Long dtai is the outcome. A restaurant that sits on the crest of the island, overlooking the sea, offering the best of locally found food.  

‘Southern Thailand has such a rich culinary tradition and I will do my utmost to present the best of it. Good cooking can only happen with good ingredients so I have been scouting around the island and across the straits on the mainland looking for local items, especially vegetables and seafood to devise a thoroughly southern Thai menu.’
