Calling all frequent flyers to Thailand!

GING THAI is dishing up a free menu for passport stamps

Crown Melbourne’s newly launched riverside restaurant and bar GING THAI is offering complimentary dining experiences to guests who present their current passport bearing immigration stamps to Thailand – available from 24 to 27 October.


As the fifth most popular destination for Australians travelling overseas (ABS 2017), there’s no denying Thailand holds a place in hearts of many Aussies. To celebrate this and its recent launch, GING THAI will transport travellers back to Thailand to relive their most memorable dining experiences. The best bit? The more you have travelled to Thailand, the more you are rewarded!


From Thursday 24 October until Sunday 27 October, guests who show they’ve travelled to Thailand once on their current passport will be treated to a serving of Spiced Chicken Wings; while those who have ventured twice will enjoy a free Chicken Pad Thai.


More frequent travellers who have visited at least three times will tuck into a serving of Pork Satay Skewers alongside a traditional Green Chicken Curry. And better yet, those who have ventured to Thailand ten times or more can indulge in the ultimate banquet – GING THAI’s Feed Me menu for two.


Chef On Saengyojanr

Bangkok-raised Head Chef On Saengyojanr says she’s thrilled to welcome guests from near and far to relish their travel memories by enjoying a traditional Thai experience in the heart of Melbourne.


“We can’t wait to spoil those who love Thailand just as much as we do at GING THAI, transporting guests back to their culinary adventures with our complimentary passport dining experiences,” she says.


With an impressive career spanning more than 30 years across kitchens in Asia and Melbourne, On has been instrumental in bringing the best Thai food to Crown thanks to her traditional Thai cuisine training, which began in her childhood growing up in Bangkok. The menu is inspired by On’s fond memories in the kitchen with her grandmother and mother.


Launched in July 2019, GING THAI draws upon authentic flavours that define traditional Thai food, executed with a fresh and modern twist using premium Australian produce.


While the limited-time passport offering is available across lunch and dinner, guests who visit during the hours of 4pm–7pm on Friday 25 October can also enjoy a live DJ and $12 cocktails, $10 selected wines and $8 selected beers.

Available for four days only, bookings are highly recommended and can be made online or by phoning the restaurant on 03 9292 5777.
