Bangkok comes to Brisbane at Naga Thai Restaurant and Bar!

Naga Thai Restaurant and Bar has opened its palatial doors at Eagle Street Pier, delivering modern regional Thai food, vibrant drinks, and energetic vibe with playful designs. This four-year passion project by Andrew and Jaimee Baturo (the masterminds behind; The Gresham Bar, Walter’s Steakhouse, and Popolo Italian Kitchen & Bar) takes guests on a delicious flavour journey while transporting them into a 1970’s extravaganza created by Anna Spiro.

Head chef, Suwisa Phoonsang, pays homage to both Bangkok and the northern village  of her upbringing with a balanced mash-up of freshness, spices, heat and herbs, all with a focus on quality Aussie produce and seafood. Think Moreton Bay Bug Pad Thai, Seafood  Dumpling Green Curry and Thai street food faves like grilled Pork Neck Salad and Massaman Beef Milk Buns.

And the flavours don’t just stop there – Naga Thai offers a wide range of smashable drinks! Guests are invited to sip on some lychee wine, Naga Laga, the signature Nagroni, or select something from the concise and accessible wine list.

Bringing to life the spirit of Thailand, Naga, named after the dragons and serpents that stand guard over the many temples, this space features a curvaceous interior that looks out over the Brisbane River as it winds toward the Story Bridge. The restaurant’s eclectic and energetic design, by renowned designer, Anna Spiro, is a nod to the 60’s and 70’s with  super-bold colours and fabrics, retro objects, voluminous lamps and a ceiling adorned with more than 150 glowing lanterns. Diners can choose to sit at the 10m long bar, the terrace overlooking the Brisbane River and Story Bridge or inside the 150-seat restaurant.
