Following years of training in the industry, Ping, the owner and executive chef, opened her first restaurant in 2013. “LEAF in Berry” was located in Berry on the South Coast of NSW. With her dedication to recipes and cooking, it became a staple address preferred by locals and visitors alike. The success led to a branch here in Nowra. “LEAF in Nowra” was rolled out in 2016 and quickly became a new buzz in town.
In December 2018, Ping decided to only concentrate on “LEAF in Nowra”.
Her experienced staff team followed her with all the recipes she had created. Ping and team will continue to offer and share not only Thai and Asian delicacies but also warm-and welcoming services.
LEAF stands for “Love Eating Asian Food”. We believe that once you try Thai or other Asian dishes, you will fall in love with them! The name is also drawn from the use of Asian herbs and vegetables in the ingredients. The leaves give out such rich flavours and contribute distinctive tastes to whatever dishes they’re in. There is no better name for this place.
We serve family-style food inspired by Ping’s own family kitchen. Thai cuisine is about combining tastes with textures and aromas with colours. Our recipes are attentively concocted to please your palate.
Our menu features a wide variety of popular Thai and Asian dishes. Each is conceived with love and care with your absolute pleasure in mind.
We work for culinary memories you would want to tell everyone about!
