At the vanguard of Royal Osha’s exemplary kitchen is multi-award-winning Chef Vichit Mukura.
Chef Vichit has led Royal Osha to its glory, being recognized by the Michelin Guide Thailand for 5 consecutive years as one of the most recommended restaurants in Bangkok.
A veteran cooking instructor, TV food program personality and cookbook author, Chef Vichit is one of the Kingdom’s most respected authorities of Thai cuisine.
He cultivated his culinary passion from a very young age as a helper in his mother’s kitchen. At the age of 16, he found himself working as a kitchen hand in a leading hotel before moving on to a chef position not long after.
In the late 1980s, Chef Vichit, then 24, took the executive chef title at the Mandarin Oriental’s Sala Rim Naam Thai restaurant, where he remained for 27 years. He made the riverside 5-star restaurant one of the most famous Thai restaurants in Thailand. During his time at the Mandarin Oriental, he also ran the Oriental
Professional Thai Chef (OPTC), the country’s first comprehensive Thai culinary school, under the Oriental Hotel Apprenticeship Program (OHAP). There, he helped generate countless Thai cuisine chefs and professionals who now grace upscale restaurants both in Thailand and internationally.
