The quality of the food isn't unexpected: for almost two decades Nahm chef David Thompson has been regarded as one of the most extraordinary exponents of classic Thai cooking on the planet. No, the surprise at Nahm is reserved instead for the wine list.
Not only is the list stuffed with a really interesting selection of wines from

So you can imagine I was some what surprised to see on our National free
