Hidden in Chatswood is a little gem of a restaurant that serves only the best and most authentic Thai food. Their name Khao Pla comes from the Thai words K̄hwā (ขวา) meaning right and Plā (ปลา) meaning fish. Head chef and co-owner of the restaurant Pla told us that because people in Thailand only ate fish a hundred years ago, choosing the right fish was hugely significant.
Ever since he came to Australia to study eleven years ago, Pla has worked in different restaurants like Mr. Wong’s, Spice I Am, and Ms. G’s, determined to learn all about the various Asian cuisines. In 2013, Pla was satisfied with all that he had learned from his experiences and decided that it was the right time to start his own business. He’d always dreamed of opening a restaurant where he could spend years developing his own style and signature dishes.
I don’t want something similar, I want something unique.
