Straight Outta Asia casts an extensive array of international guest chefs who have a huge passion for developing their food cultures across the globe. Thailand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, and South Korea will all be represented.
Inspired by the culinary offerings from each region, Straight Outta Asia rolls out the carpet straight to Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, and Tokyo, while guests dine right in the centre of downtown Ho Chi Minh City.

Thai cuisine is featured as the first concept, as it has become tremendously popular in Ho Chi Minh City for its distinctive harmony of contrasting flavours.
Through Straight Outta Bangkok, food connoisseurs can travel on a sizzling journey of authenticity, highlighting dishes such as Tom Yum, Pad Thai, and Som Tum, a selection of authentic Thai curries, and must-try desserts including mango sticky rice and Thai milk tea.
All signature dishes are curated by Chef Burin Pongchang with over 30 years of experience. As the Sous Chef of Feast restaurant under the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers Bangkok, Chef Pongchang is the regular guest chef of international Thai promotions in China, Malaysia, and beyond.
Executive assistant manager of Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers Stephen Wright said, “As a 5-star hotel in the food and beverage industry in Ho Chi Minh City, we have never stopped re-inventing ourselves with phenomenal offerings. This initiative does not only bring our guests a unique culinary experience, but also creates a playground for our local chefs to cross train and exchange skills to develop themselves in their careers.”
He added, "We are extremely excited to introduce Straight Outta Asia and honoured to welcome our very first international guest chef from Thailand. Chef Burin Pongchang, who demonstrates such a burning love and in-depth knowledge of Thai cuisines, is the perfect choice for this collaboration."
