The name Bo.lan is not only a reference to the Thai meaning of “boran”, it is also a combination of Chef Duangporn’s nickname “Bo” and Chef Dylan Jones’s name. Chef Dylan and Chef Bo met in London, whilst working in the world-famous Michelin starred restaurant, Nahm, where their love of Thai food brought them together and lead to a marriage of two talented chefs.


The duo’s food philosophy focuses heavily on the use of bio diversified produce and sourcing their ingredients from local farmers, creating what they would refer to as “essentially Thai” – Their personal interpretation of the country’s cuisine using the real methods, presented in a way that pays respect to these greatrecipes. Their goal is to be a zero carbon emissions restaurant by the year 2018 and toeducate eaters on how locally sourced food isn’t just good for our community and environment, it also tastes better!
