Founder Tom McNamara first came to Phuket in 1988 to fish! Having been to Bora Bora and enjoyed the experience, he decided that Phuket must be ripe for gamefishing. Unfortunately, when he arrived, all local gamefishing experts told him that there were no marlin in The Andaman Sea around Phuket . . . on his first trip he caught a 280-pound marlin. Tom basically gets what he wants.

Having had one stroke of good luck, he thought that Phuket may be the place to find more, so he stayed. Many years later, Baan Rim Pa Piano Bar and Restaurant, and her two sister restaurants Da Maurizio Bar Ristorante and Joe's Downstairs are a tribute to the man's tenacity, attention to details and love of all things culinary.

Tom previously owned and ran restaurants in New York City, France, England and The Caribbean. Each had its own design, theme and flavour. In Phuket he decided that the only way to provide completely authentic Thai food was to search for recipes originally cooked only for the Thai Royal Family . . . authentic Royal Thai Cuisine.
