Chef Nuit Regular and her husband Jeff are celebrated for bringing the distinct flavour of Northern Thai cuisine and hospitality to Toronto and across Canada. The popularity of their restaurants (PAI Northern Thai Kitchen, Kiin, Sabai Sabai, Sukho Thai) 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 both PAI Northern Thai Kitchen and Kiin the prestigious Thai Select Premium designation.
PAI Northern Thai Kitchen is honoured to be recognized as one of Toronto’s Best Restaurants several years in a row in the by NOW Magazine. Broadening her reach across Canada, Chef Nuit has consulted for restaurants across the country and is a judge on Food Network's Wall of Chefs.
