Consider Lamoon a sister restaurant to Lamaii, the Thai restaurant from Bank Atchawaran. The Asian restaurant in Chinatown from Bon Atchawaran, Bank’s older brother, features Thai food from Bon’s wife Bia Hawang and Japanese cuisine from Jay Boonparsook.

Bon worked with Bank at Chada Thai, Chada Street, and Lamaii before opening Lamoon. Boonparsook worked at BarMasa at Aria and other local Japanese restaurants before coming to Lamoon. Hawang worked at Lamaii, where she managed the bar, and spent years working at Catch, Sage, and Jean Georges Steakhouse at Aria.

Diners can scan in a QR code on their phones to order dishes such as coco tom yum with shrimp, soft tofu with mixed vegetables in a clear vegan broth, a taro and chestnut crispy stick, crispy wings with yuzu honey or spicy tom yum, pad kra pow with ground chicken or pork, vegan garlic fried rice, and yellow curry with chicken. For sushi rolls, find the Take Me Out with seared crab, eel, salmon, scallop, and tuna; the Roar with tuna, yellowtail salmon, scallop, and shrimp; Luna mushroom topped with spicy tuna, ikura, and crab meat with mango sauce; and the Girl Gone Wild with shrimp tempura wrapped with eel and eel sauce.

For dessert, customers can order Khanom Krok, a Thai coconut pudding or pung pung Nutella.

Drinks include the Meme with black sugar and milk with mini boba, the Caramel Way with caramel and chocolate with chocolate flakes, a Pink Lady with Sala cider and fresh milk topped with red bean, and strawberry fresh cream.
