About Executive Chef Wara Pakdeevirote

I worked as an executive chef for more than nine years in a number of hotels in Phuket, Japan and England. Ten years ago I start working at The 9th Floor and it has grown to be a very popular restaurant. I like to teach young people and to give them the opportunity to get good cooking and organisational knowledge. I also enjoy the freedom and unlimited possibilities that cuisine has to offer. For me there’s nothing more satisfying than pleasing customers with top-quality cooking.
