Thai Esane

5-Course SE Asian Celebration Tasting Event

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 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. We are excited to visit with Chef Singto and to hear her thoughts as she takes your questions and discusses the splendors of Southeast Asian cuisine.

From Ft. Smith, Arkansas, Chef Nina Singto recognized her culinary calling just eight years ago when she founded Thai Esane. Singto is self-taught and has a gifted natural talent behind the main line taking her skills she learned at home to the restaurant. Since then, she has sprinkled her signature “Nina Hot” across Nashville with locations in Brentwood, Midtown, and 5th & Broadway. Chef Singto can be seen on Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games, Bite Club, and Chopped.
