Night N Day Ep. 1 – Karmakamet Diner

By Eddie Yii

Karmakamet Diner is not an unfamiliar name. They have been around for years and many associate it with extravagant interior decor and a signature cotton candy dessert, which has become both a blessing and ‘curse’ as most first-time diners simply order it, take pictures for Instagram and leave.

In our brand new Night N Day series, we want to give added meaning to familiar favourites because they, in fact, represent much more than we think we know. At Karmakamet Diner, every single detail and dish represents class and depth of thought from the co-owners. It is a place designed for any occasion, all day every day, easily holding its own whether you visit for a casual brunch or a luxurious dinner with that special someone.

Brunch

As you enter Karmakamet Diner, you will be greeted by the intoxicating scents from Karmakamet Aromatherapy, which might actually be more well-known than the diner itself.

Every Karmakamet outlet is designed by Natthorn Rakchana (Edge), Karmakamet’s Founder and Creative Director. This particular outlet is inspired by a medicine warehouse in Hainan owned by Edge’s grandfather.

Old-school medicine cupboards.

The whole place emits rustic charm.

The restaurant side is fully managed by Chef Jutamas Theantae (Som), Karmakamet Diner’s co-founder, who boasts enviable credentials in art, cuisine and teaching before embarking on the Karmakamet journey.

All coasters in the restaurant are replicas of hand-written letters between Edge and Som, who have been best friends since they were 15.  They had a dream of opening a restaurant together, and this place is proof that dreams come true.

You have the option to sit indoors/outdoors at Karmakamet Diner. Their alfresco-dining area is beautifully decorated with lush greenery, like a secret garden, and is definitely a good spot for photos.

Karmakamet Diner by night exudes a different kind of allure. And just like brunch and snack, they offer a completely different dinner menu, where the intricacy of every dish turns up another notch.

And of course, there is a Karmakamet Aromatherapy Shop connected to the diner for you to get some signature scents for your loved ones. They come in different forms such as diffusers, sprays, candles, etc. You will fall in love with the fragrances here.
