My full name is "Songsorn Junsunjai" but I go by Chef John and I am the founder and food director of Baan Ying Group, which Baanying Cafe & Meal is part of.
My interest in the culinary arts began at a young age where I tried different cuisines and techniques. Living in London for my studies really changed my life. The Thai restaurants were not impressive and were lacking an authentic feel, so I started to cook myself by collecting the recipes from family and friends. I also studied with many diferent chefs adopting their skills and techniques, but putting my own feel to each recipe I created.
This resulted in "Baanying Cafe & Meal" where you will find great home cooked Thai food. Our recipes are simple but unique, using a variety of ingredients from around the would, with a strong taste of Thai Cuisine.
