The Michelin Guide 2024 auhind

Our restaurant NOK NOK has received the recognition as Michelin Guide New Entry!

We have a reason to celebrate! Michelin has once again recognised Estonia’s restaurants, and this year our NOK NOK has been honoured as a new entrant. Our team is overjoyed and incredibly proud because our daily efforts have earned us this significant accolade!

Michelin inspectors highlighted that NOK NOK offers fresh, zingy, and flavour-packed dishes covering many different regions of Thailand. As a real bonus, they noted the opportunity to try a wide selection of dishes from our tasting menu, and they particularly loved our chicken satay, rich curries, and delicious desserts. Our loyal customers have shared the same opinion! We look forward to welcoming new guests to experience our authentic Thai flavours and discover their favourites!

Pukdangpan started his path to becoming a top chef in Thailand. Chef Pukdangpan has worked for a number of world-class luxury hotel restaurants in Thailand, as well as Fiji, Maldives, Seychelles, Morocco and UAE.

What is NOK NOK?

Perhaps you paused to wonder what NOK NOK means? In choosing the name, we were inspired by the restaurant’s archway facade, where on either side of the main entranceway you can see figures of birds on the columns. In Thai, nok means bird.

These sculptures originate from the pre-WWII period, as does the whole building, which was one of the few in this area to survive the bombing. Why the owners of that time positioned birds to guard either side of the entranceway, remains a mystery.
