Upcoming projects include 'BON PAN ASIAN TAPAS' in Old Town Phuket and 'MAISON L'ARÔME,' which will feature a stunning sea view in Phuket's Patong area, integrating multiple brands.

 

From 'L'IMPRESSIONNISME ET L'ARÔME' to 'LA MYTHOLOGIE ET L'ARÔME,' and the expressionist masterpiece 'The Scream' interpreted in dishes both in France and China, L’ARÔME is committed to expressing the art of cuisine through various forms, aiming to provide the most perfect and elegant modern dining experience.

Why "Madame FAN"

The opening of Madame FAN is the fruit of my reflection, a true tribute to the modernity of Chinese cuisine, breaking free from the confines of traditional classifications. I strive to capture 100% of the authenticity of Chinese flavors, enhanced by 30% with Western presentation techniques, for a final result that dares 130% innovation. For the Chinese, our cuisine awakens a deep, familiar nostalgia; for foreigners, it serves as an open window to the rich cultural and historical abundance of China. Madame FAN aims to offer an unprecedented sensory adventure, where each dish tells its own story, merging the elegance of Chinese dining with the sophistication of French culinary art.
