Set back in a shady courtyard off busy Chao Fa West, Chanya is a quaint mustard-yellow restaurant with retro décor and a forward-thinking menu rich in macrobiotics, fresh enzymes, and ingenious modern takes on traditional Thai dishes. This is the brainchild of Phuket-born Atiporn Jittananta, otherwise known as Toey, who conserves the old recipes and twists them into healthy and incredibly tasty versions.
Chanya only serves fish and shrimp, along with tofu as proteins and the tuna massaman curry there has to be tasted to be believed as it does not contain a drop of saturated fat-filled coconut milk; soy is used instead. And it works, as does the Chanya salad with morning glory and cashew nuts. Oh, and do try the home-made ice cream and chocolate lava cake. Chanya is a charming place with one eye on the past through striking period décor, the other firmly on the future.
