THAIKHUN is an exciting new casual dining experience from the owners of Chaophraya Thai Restaurant group. The interior is authentic, offering an interactive dining experience with open kitchens and traditionally rustic surroundings.
So, what does the name actually mean ... the Thai word ‘Khun’, means ‘your’, when you dine, you feel welcome, part of our home as you would in Thailand. THAIKHUN is YOUR Thailand – a place to remind you of amazing personal journeys or to ignite the dream of exploring a new destination. One thing for sure, great tasting Thai food is at the heart of this experience. It's the place to excite and educate your taste buds; experience real, Thai eating as you would on the streets of Bangkok.
Pronounced ‘tycoon’, the name celebrates the street food sellers in Thailand who are real tycoons – owning and running their own successful food businesses and leading the way in Thai street food. For us it's all about 'Food from the Heart, joint Owner/Chef Director Kim Kaewkraikhot was a Chef who ran her own small restaurant in Bangkok. Kim’s food was renowned in the local neighbourhood for its fantastic flavours.
Our vision and passion is to bring authentic Thai street food from the streets of Bangkok to the streets of the UK! The first Thaikhun opened on 26th May at Spinningfields, Manchester. The second site, Scotland's first, opened in Union Square Shopping Centre, Aberdeen on Monday 14th July.
