Authentic Flavors of Thai Pavilion make its way to Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives

This August, Thai Pavilion is all set to bring Taj’s most exotic cuisine at the exquisite Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives for twelve days starting August 6 through August 12, 2019.

Standing tall for the last 25 years, Thai Pavilion was introduced after intensive cuisine and culture study in the ’90s. It was the first Thai restaurant that opened in India and has been the talk of the town since the last two and a half decades. With delectable cuisine and a story that deserves to be showcased, it is all set to nestle itself in the middle of one of the largest natural lagoons in the world to serve a royal cuisine for its guests.


Detail, balance and variety – a known dictum of the Thai Cuisine will come to life, where textures, hues and aromas will become paramount of their choicest creations. Guests will be spoiled for choice, as Chef Sheroy Kermani along with the prestigious team at Taj Exotica Resort & Spa will work together to bring in a number of Thai delicacies for an unforgettable dining experience.

He shares, “Our culinary offerings at the Taj Exotica Resort & Spa have been known far and wide with the diversity of our visiting guests. To further enhance this awareness, there could be no better platform other than the acclaimed Thai Pavilion of Mumbai, India to come to our shores for the very first time and bring some of the most amazing Thai food that the Maldives has to offer. The best of ingredients have been flown directly from Thailand especially for this pop up to ensure that our guests savor some of the finest and authentic royal Thai cuisine at our overwater restaurant Deep End.”

Regional, ethnic-migrant and fusion styles of cooking are combined to create a variety of exciting and complex flavors that appeal even to the serious gourmand. The stars of the menu are the signature combinations of rice and noodles including Stir-fried egg noodles, Flat rice noodles and spicy fried rice with roast curry to pair with delicious curries such as Thai red curry, Thai green curry, Thai yellow curry and a unique style of southern Thai Curry with their extraordinary complex balance of flavours that lie underneath.

For those looking for nothing less than perfection, there’s the Set menu with vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Guests can indulge in a non-vegetarian meal including Grilled chicken supreme with peanut sauce, Spicy prawns’ soup flavored with lemongrass and birds eye chilies, Lamb shank with basil and chili and Thai red curry with an option of prawns or chicken.

The team has left no stone unturned in their quest to create a delicious vegetarian meal that includes Corn cakes flavored with red curry paste & Thai herbs, Spinach & sweet corn soup, Palm hearts with cashew nuts and Thai green curry with vegetables.

Delicious and inventive desserts such as Diced water chestnut with coconut cream, Warm Toffee pudding, Lemongrass Crème Brulee and Macaroon flavored soft-centered chocolate dollops will be available.
