WARWICK PARADISE ISLAND – BAHAMAS ELEVATES CULINARY OFFERINGS WITH RELAUNCH OF ‘TINGS ON A STICK’ AS ASIAN CUISINE RESTAURANT
Enhancing the culinary experience for guests staying at the adults-only, all-inclusive Warwick Paradise Island – Bahamas, the resort’s Tings on a Stick is relaunching as an á la carte Asian cuisine restaurant, completely revamping its shish kebob menu. The new restaurant concept has been developed under the direction of Chef Tan Boon Khiang, who brings 22 years of culinary expertise and innovation and was recently brought on to the resort’s culinary team.
Guests dining at Tings on a Stick can savor various Asian influences including Indonesian, Chinese, Japanese and Thai, as well as a Bahamian-inspired Asian entrée.
“Providing a five-star culinary experience for guests as part of our all-inclusive offerings is a top priority for the management of Warwick Paradise Island – Bahamas,” said Benjamin Davis, general manager. “The addition of an Asian cuisine restaurant raises the bar of what an all-inclusive dining experience should be in The Bahamas,” he added.
“From the first bite of the appetizers, the taste buds are awakened and the culinary journey begins as diners can select Sashimi Papaya Salad, Asian BBQ Spare Ribs, Homemade Chicken Broth Wonton Soup and Vegetable Spring Roll as their first course,” said Davis.
The palate is tantalized with savory Asian-infused entrees including:
- Nasi Goreng (Indonesian Fried Rice) – chicken or shrimp, cilantro, sesame, Asian vegetables, shrimp paste, curry, traditionally topped with a fried egg and garnished with cashew nuts.
- Pad Thai – rice noodles, Thai spices, scallion, chicken or titi shrimp, tofu, scrambled egg and garnished with crushed peanuts (pictured right).

“We are happy that Chef Tan Boon Khiang has joined our team to lead the transformation of Tings on a Stick. His knowledge and experience has guided the kitchen team to enact these changes over a short timeline,” noted Davis.
Chef Tan (pictured right), a native of Brunei has travelled and worked in the United Kingdom, Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Malaysia and currently resides in The Bahamas. He credits his uncle, a Singapore chef, for his development in the culinary world as he learned the basics of Asian and Cantonese cuisines and most importantly moral values.
Chef Tan’s extensive training began at the University of Salford of United Kingdom Culinary where he graduated in 1997. Through his studies, he built a repertoire of Malaysian and Thai recipes working at traditional Asian restaurants. He strives to bridge cultural understanding through food, making Asian cooking accessible, healthy and nutritious.
