In charge of the kitchens is Executive Chef Sean Venter, a South African native with over seven years in the trade, including stints in London (working under renowned chef’s such Jean Christophe Novelli and Anthony Worrall Thompson) and Dubai (at Burj al Arab, the world’s most luxurious hotel), and this rich experience translates here into artfully plated dishes packed full of flavour.
For mains, the Kurobuta pork chop, savoy cabbage, bacon bits, Edamame beans, jus royal (B580), and Confit duck curry, foie gras, mustard pickle, crispy egg noodles (B650) are both highly recommended. And if you’re a seafood fan, don’t miss the Blue Swimmer Crab with Singapore-style chilli sauce (B890), or the signature Rock lobster, wok-fried, black pepper sauce, capsicum (B1,900) – simply delicious!
Still have room for dessert? Chay Had’s signature Thai Tea Crème Bruleè puts a local spin on the traditional French favourite to scrumptious effect; and Thailand’s traditional Mango with sticky rice (B160) goes the opposite direction, getting a European twist with the addition of white chocolate ice cream. Tasty, too.
To wash down your food, Chay Had offers an extensive selection of wines, spirits, beers and soft drinks – all reasonably priced – and daily happy hours from 5pm-8pm offer selected tipples at just B120.
The first Sunday of each month Chay Had hosts a superb all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch (11.30am-3pm) featuring oysters, prawns, smoked salmon, prime roast beef, Foie Gras, gourmet cheeses, and much more, for just B1,499 per person. The perfect excuse to spend a long and lazy afternoon by the beach!
Chay Had is open daily 11am–Midnight.
