Our story

From the streets of Bangkok to you

Our business was founded in 2004 by partners in business and in life, Kim

and Martin.

Kim, the real inspiration and beating heart of our restaurants, grew up in

rural Khiri Mat, a village in the Sukhothai province of Thailand where her

love for cooking stemmed from cooking with her mum.

At the age of just 15 and with big dreams, Kim left her village for the busy

streets of Bangkok, where she set up her own garment factory. Kim’s main

passion however has always been food.


And so in 1993, Kim set up her first

small Phad Thai Cart. Through her dedication and hard work, Kim

expanded to run several street food stalls and won an award for the

delicious flavours of her Phad Thai recipe. This very recipe is still proudly

used across our restaurants today.


Kim and Martin met while Kim was still working on that very stall in 1997

– and two short years later she moved to Leeds, Martin’s hometown and the

location of our very first restaurant.


Although the setting may have changed from those days, the passion and soul

behind our concept hasn’t. Our goal is still to deliver an authentic Thai experience and for our customers to fall in love with the Thai culture and

food as much as we have.
