Hello and welcome to Thai Sensation. My name is Prathiap, I am the head chef.
WOW, what a journey it has been. I have been living and cooking in Australia for over 20 years now, in numerous restaurants including heading the Thai section at the famous JoJo's restaurant on the Brisbane mall. Prior to opening the " Thai Sensation" restaurant I owned and operated the "Thai Dream" restaurant at Highgate Hill / West End for many years.
My exposure to cooking came at a very early age of 8, when I had to wake up at day break each and every day of the week, to help my parents prepare food to be sold at the local markets. At 13 years of age, I finished school in my home town of "Sukhothai" ( The first Thai capital some 700 years ago). Shortly thereafter I moved to Bangkok to work in our family restaurant. Having worked there for numerous years, I gained extensive knowledge and experience in Thai cuisine which gave me the courage to move to Hong Kong to further my cooking career. After several years there, I kept hearing what a wonderful country Australia is . I successfully applied to come to Australia in 1995, and here I have stayed, and YES, now I know what a wonderful country Australia is.
At "Thai Sensation", all food is prepared fresh at time of order. All herbs are picked fresh daily from my own grown garden. This practice has been in our family for generations.
I hope to make your experience at my "Thai Sensation" restaurant a pleasant and memorable one.
