Asia’s 50 Best 2016: Nahm and Long Chim Chef David Thompson wins Lifetime Achievement Award

David Thompson, the celebrated chef of Nahm in Bangkok and Long Chim in Singapore, has been named the 2016 recipient of The Diners Club Lifetime Achievement Award.

Chef David Thompson is best known for elevating Thai cuisine while retaining the sincerity of its roots at Nahm, his flagship restaurant in Bangkok. The Australian’s hotel restaurant has been a fixture on The World’s 50 Best Restaurants List – holding a respectable #22 last year (but down from its peak at 2014’s #14).
