In April 2023, Netflix will release a new Thai thriller Hunger similar to “The Menu” from Searchlight Pictures. We’ve given you all the information you need about Hunger, including the plot, cast, trailer and release date on Netflix.
Anyone who has ever worked in a professional kitchen will tell you that rush hour is the worst.
Despite the tremendous amount of anxiety during long shifts, some might argue that the joy of getting it all together in the end all the time makes it worth it. Blood boiled, and emotions ran high in the extreme environment.
The Bear on FX and the critically acclaimed film The Menu have transformed the culinary world in last few years by portraying fine dining as something to be bought with blood, sweat, and tears.
Hunger, a new Thai drama on Netflix, tries to attain the same goal.
Hunger, director Sitisiri Mongkolsiri’s next film, will be one of the first Netflix releases in Thailand this year. Episodes of Girl From Nowhere for Netflix and the mythological film Sang Krasue, which debuted in 2019, are amongst the Thai director’s previous works.
Considering its deep roots in both drama and horror, we can anticipate that Famine will encapsulate both in a plot similar to Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash. Here’s everything we know about Netflix’s Hunger series.
Netflix Hunger Release Date: Is It Coming In April 2023?
On April 10, 2023, Netflix will begin streaming Hunger entirely. The duration of this film is 130 minutes.
While details on filming for Hunger are scant, we can say with certainty that filming is set in late 2022 as post-production was not verified until January 14, 2023. Bangkok, Thailand, was the filming location.
Plotline of The Hunger Film Thailand
This film is a few woman named Aoy. Aoy, a young woman in her twenties, is the owner of her family’s fried noodle restaurant in Bangkok’s historic district.
One day, he receives an invite to leave the family business and join the “Hunger” team, which is Thailand’s number one luxury Chef table team led by the very cunning and vengeful Chef Paul.
As a result, this is a story we have all heard before, but that does not imply it is a bad story. Achieving perfection in the kitchen is an endeavor that requires unimaginable care and concentration.
Those who know the ever-popular celebrity chef, Gordon Ramsay, may remember that he was the focus of a documentary series called Boiling Point.
In this series, Ramsay launches his first restaurant and earns three Michelin Stars. Those familiar with Gordon Ramsay will remember this fact.
In contrast to the hostile persona Ramsay has adopted in modern times, his curse-filled rant in Boiling Point is imbued with a sense of true ferocity and cruelty.
He has no flashy production or sense of irrational anger of his own. There is just enough desire and pressure to kill a small elephant.

The main cast that will be seen in this Thai film include the following:
1. Aokbab Chutimon Chuengcharoensukying will play the lead role of Aoy. It has been announced that Hunger will be Aokbab’s first appearance on Netflix.
