Chef Nuit Regular and her husband Jeff are celebrated for bringing the distinct flavour of Norther Thai cuisine and hospitality to Toronto and across Canada with PAI Toronto. The popularity of their restaurants (PAI Northern Thai Kitchen, Sabai Sabai, Sukho Thai, and formerly Khao San Road) all began with the opening of the humble Curry Shack in the small town of Pai, in Northern Thailand.
Having learned to cook in her mother’s kitchen, Chef Nuit made the decision to leave her career as a nurse in Thailand so that she could share her passion and life experiences through family recipes, street market dishes, and creative collaborations. Toronto has been hungry for her talent and ever since she was named the Nine of Dine winner at the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo in 2009, Chef Nuit can be found regularly featured as one of the most influential chefs in Toronto. In acknowledgment of the authenticity of her Thai cooking, the government of Thailand awarded PAI Northern Thai Kitchen the prestigious Thai Select Premium designation.
PAI Northern Thai Kitchen is honoured to be recognized as one of Toronto’s Best Restaurants 2015 in the New & Notable category by NOW Magazine and to place number three on BlogTO’s The Best New Restaurants in Toronto 2014. Broadening her reach across Canada, Chef Nuit has consulted for restaurants in Vancouver and Nova Scotia.
