From the streets of Bangkok to you
Our business was founded in 2004 by partners in business and in life, Kim
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.
