Have you ever been to Khao San road, Thailand?
Well, you can find our authentic Thai street food experience in your local area!
Here at Thaikhun, we serve authentic Thai food and tasty cocktails all day long.
Bursting at the seams with hand-picked Thai bric-a-brac, every Thaikhun takes you on a journey across the world to Khao San Road. Every recipe on our menu is found at real Thai street vendors. Every trinket comes from our top-secret Bangkok bazaar. We are proud to be Thai, and to introduce our favourite flavours for the people of Britain to try.
In today’s blog, we’re telling you all about our traditional bric-a-brac transported all the way from Bangkok so that you can enjoy the real experience in our restaurants. As well as this, introducing you to our brand new venture, Tahikhun Street!
Our bric-a-brac journey from Thailand to the UK…
Khun Kim travels to Thailand every year to handpick all the pieces across Thaikhun Street Food and Thaikhun Street (our new buffet venture in Trafford Centre!).
We have many restaurants across the UK and although you can spot them a mile off by the whacky décor, each one has their own individual identity. From tuk-tuks in the window to boats on the ceiling, your eyes are sure to wander, and we don’t blame you!
The common theme is that we have many sentimental and meaningful objects in our sites. These include Buddha’s, flags, shrines and a plentiful amount of hanging tins and traditional Thai signs. The flag of the Kingdom of Thailand is made of three colours, blue, white and red which all have their own value. Blue represents the King, white represents religion and red represents the nation. The name of this flag is ธงไตรรงค์, thong trai rong meaning tricolour flag. You’ll find this flag on the majority of our bric-a-brac bits and pieces as well as on each shrine in our restaurants. The people of Thailand are very proud of their country, and rightly so, which is why the flag is to be seen wherever you go.
In Thaikhun Oxford, we have a large boat hanging from the ceiling, this is something you won’t miss! In Thaikhun Silverburn, Manchester and Cambridge, we have tuk-tuks inside/outside which a lot of our happy guests take their #tkselfies in! Keep your eye out for what’s coming to our brand-new site opening in Trafford Centre, Thaikhun Street.
Thaikhun Street will be opening this spring bringing a new taste of Thailand to Trafford.
Opening in March, Thaikhun Street, pronounced tycoon, is Trafford’s very own slice of Thailand located in Intu Trafford Centre. The first-ever buffet from the family of Thaikhun restaurants. You can indulge in our unlimited Thai buffet with something for all the family. Sip on Thai-inspired cocktails and feel instantly transported to Thailand among our iconic Thai bric-a-brac decor.
