Sawasdee Kha (Hello)
Have you tried Thaikhun yet? If not then drop everything and go!
I was lucky enough to get invited along to the VIP launch night at their new home in Silverburn, Glasgow on Monday evening. From the moment you walk through the door you feel as though you have stepped into Bangkok. The restaurant is filled with original TV’s, pictures, ornaments and flags from a Thai market which gives the authenticity of being in a Thai restaurant.
We met our friends and were offered some drinks and delicious food which tasted like it came straight from the streets of Bangkok. The pork skewers were probably my favourite but everything I tried was bursting with flavour!
After a while there was a speech thanking everyone who has been part of the journey to open Thaikhun, it was soo lovely to hear that all of the chefs were from Thailand and the manager was from a little village in Thailand herself. We were also told that a lot of the food has come from original recipes in her own little village and most of the items you will see on the ceiling and walls are from her own home in Thailand. I love places like this! You could feel the passion in the atmosphere for this place and I felt very thankful to be part of the celebration. After the speech everyone broke out in song and dance, almost the full restaurant got up to dance and join in the celebration.
I can’t wait to get back and taste more of the delicious food on the menu and maybe this time I will choose not to be the designated driver and get to taste some of their cocktails! I love the place everyone is so friendly and they are just like one big family! Thaikun is also owned by the same group as Chaophraya which is an upmarket Thai restaurant.
Would I go back? YES! Here is a couple of pictures from the fun we had in the photobooth…
