Named to Eater Nashville’s prestigious "38 Essential Restaurants" List ('22), as well as Thrillist's "25 Most Essential Nashville Food Experiences" List ('22), this eatery from Executive Chef/Owner Nina Singto has been bringing the freshest and most authentic Thai and Lao food to Music City since 2014 (but moved locations in 2019), when it started life on South Street. Now, in more upscale digs on Division Street, with a six-foot golden Buddha holding court, Thai Esane continues to please diners with everything from iconic Pad Thai to Malaysian-style noodles, basil eggplant, Thai-style lo mein, Bangkok wings, panang curry, papaya salad, and so much more. Originally from Arkansas, the self-taught Chef Singto is now working her magic in three locations. Her vibrant nature, passion for food, and spirit of hospitality has made her a welcome guest on the Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games, Bite Club, and Chopped.
