Ty Bellingham Pops Up at Balmoral
From Sailors Thai at The Rocks to Kittichai in New York and now a pop- up at Bathers’, Ty Belllingham joins the Balmoral team, with a new beach side flavour.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had some unexpected benefits in it’s tail. The reduced demand for large function has led to Bathers’ Pavilion redeploying our function room into a pop-up Thai Restaurant.
For those of you still nostalgic about the passing of Sailors Thai – great news – Ty Bellingham, Head Chef of the Sailors Thai Group for 12 years, is now at Betel Leaf, upstairs at Bathers’ Pavilion.
All the old favourites; Chiang mai duck relish on baby cos, Pork ribs with Thai whisky sauce, Chicken & prawn red curry relish on crispy rice cakes, Pad Kra Pao the list goes on.
“I am excited to be rejoining the Sydney food scene at a time where diners are hungry to support our restaurant industry and are ready for a new experience. I can’t think of a better way to kick-start this city’s passion for Thai food, with its bold rich flavours, than with Betel Leaf at the iconic Bathers’ Pavilion. As a chef it has been vital to take some time out, develop some new dishes, and I know I am returning reinvigorated and ready to go.”

‘Ty lives on the Northern Beaches, and we have stayed in touch both at Sailors Thai, in New York at Kittychai in the Thompson Hotel and back in Sydney again. It was a no brainer …. I love his food and his food-ethos … and I’m certainly not alone.’
– Jessica Shirvington, Director Bathers’ Pavilion
