There are a surprising number of aviation-themed dining experiences, and here’s another one that I didn’t know about until now. And it actually seems to serve decent food.
Na-Oh Bangkok is a restaurant in Bangkok in a converted Lockheed L-1011 Tristar.
According to the restaurant, the name “Na-Oh” comes from “Noah’s Ark” and the restaurant offers a “futuristic food journey” with “Diaspora” as the main theme. According to the restaurant:
“The diaspora speaks of an imaginative scenario after the end of the world, in which all living beings are evacuated to Na-Oh. The story shows sequences of life and emotions, sadness, grief, lost partying and the feeling of drifting through the food in this gigantic figure. “
That’s quite a commitment on a subject. Was the subject of dining on a plane in a city not enough and they had to settle for a full doomsday scenario where we were supposed to experience grief and sadness and where the restaurant is full of taxidermists?
The menu in the restaurant is constantly changing. Here’s a three-course meal that retails for THB 1,199 (~ $ 40):
Then here’s a five-course meal that retails for THB 1,800 (~ $ 60):
Here’s a promotional video about Na-Oh Bangkok (is this an escape room or aviation-themed dining experience?):
Here is a video someone uploaded from their last dining experience (and yes, they said “fake grass”):
I would love to dine at Na-Oh if I ever get to be in Bangkok again … I think. I like the concept of dining in a converted L-1011 while a little less excited about dining in a taxidermy-filled restaurant that has a doomsday scenario. This part of the experience sounds more like an escape room to me than a nice restaurant. But the right thing for everyone, I suppose.
What do you think of Na-Oh Bangkok? Would you eat here?
