My name is Ham Chookiat Saenguraiporn, a native of Bangkok, Thailand. I'm a restauranteur by day, a daddy of a toddler by night and a chef who turns ordinary food into art at events.

For over a decade, I've routinely cooked for customers countless meal at restaurant. This year, I am starting a home cook journey with a vision to share with guests from my favorite comfort dishes along with a blend of my childhood favorites, experience, upbringing, and Thai culture.

About Soi 9? - What I believe that separates Soi 9 from other Thai restaurant is the intent to share a home cooking experience of those little known dishes, how much our team cares about making the food and the preparation that requires a certain amount of effort.

Thank you for taking a time to read and for the opportunity to share with you my cooking vision. My team and I look forward to share this experience with you. Cheers!
