Executive Chef Thomas Smith, Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok

Executive Chef Thomas Smith of Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok impressed me with his composure while he was in an interview facing the camera. Such composure might come from his acquaintance with the interviewer, but largely it was because of his extensive work experience in top hotels and restaurants, including Michelin-starred restaurants, throughout his approximately 20-year culinary career across different regions of the globe including Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

Prior to accepting his role as the Executive Chef at Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok, Thomas equipped himself the ability to work to perfection when he was hired as the Chef de Partie – 2nd Commis at London’s Savoy Hotel, a five-star property holding one Michelin star, and another Chef de Partie – 2nd Commis position at one-Michelin-starred Les Saveurs – Toulouse. He has also been seasoned to be a culinary professional with recognized leading and management skills when he was the Sous Chef at six-star Madinat Jumeriah in Dubai overseeing kitchen operations at its 44 restaurants, leading him to obtain Executive Chef posts at major five-star resorts in Phuket and Khao Lak in Thailand.

With Thomas’s well-rounded skills in cuisines and restaurant management, his endeavour to enhance the food and drink reputation of Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok has proved exemplary. After we have tried his delicately crafted Sunday brunch, we really admire his attempt to perfect this brunch even to the extent that it could possibly seize the throne of Bangkok’s Sunday brunch scene. Watch the video below to see the highlights of the Sunday brunch. Read our review on the Sunday brunch here.

If you would like to experience Thomas’s culinary skills, you should try the Sunday brunch at Twenty Seven Bites at Radisson Blu Plaza Bangkok. If you prefer fine dining, try Attico Italian Restaurant, which is also under his oversight. I am sure you will love it!
