Welcome to Bangkok Station Restaurant, A hi-end casual dining and Thai artisan-focused restaurant serving authentic, heirloom Thai method and recipes, in an elegant setting reminiscent of the Thai cuisine history.
Nithidol Nithitanawut or Chef Terry is the chef-owner and founder of Bangkok Station Restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. He began cooking at an early age, helping his mother prepare traditional Thai foods for her merit to the temple every Sunday morning. In 1999, He and his mother launched the acclaimed Thai restaurant ‘Bann-Khun-Mae’, and Chef Terry began to cook in a professional kitchen.
After the births of his second son, Chef Terry dreamed of bringing their sense of family business experience to the United States. Since Chef Terry’s sister had long lived in Atlanta and they had been impressed by the charm of the city during their visits here, this seemed like the perfect place to begin.
His understanding of food is shaped by the environment he lived in, and he was blessed to have learned so much from the rich tapestry of Thai culture. There are several essential factors when creating a truly exceptional and memorable dining experience. In Thai culture, these elements are warm and caring hospitality, impeccably balanced seasoning and the freshest and most premium ingredients so he wanted to bring all of the essential senses of Thai culture here in Atlanta.
The Thai proverb, ‘There are fish in the water and rice in the fields’, gains its significance from Thailand’s rich agricultural heritage and royal heritage and legacy of the Kingdom of Thailand. It emphasizes the fertility of the land and the strong bond that Thai people have with the land and to Khao (rice), which is the staple food of Thailand and the backbone of Thai agriculture throughout our colorful history.
This ancient saying speaks to the abundance of fish and rice in Thailand to the cultivation and harvest of all types of produce, herbs, and spices that have given birth and life to the concept and cuisine of Bangkok Station Restaurant. It also represents the global popularity of Thai food alongside the unique and exquisite beauty of Thai art and culture, passed down from generation to generation.
