Bangkok Pavilion opened its doors to its first customers on Thursday at 25 Main Street, taking over the former space of Sarin Thai Cuisine. Posters hanging in the windows announced the Thai restaurant's soft opening, while the owner awaits larger street signs.
“We cook real Thai food by real Thai people,” said Gaan Fuino, the restaurant's new owner told Patch, adding that they have run restaurants in upstate New York.
The restaurant's menu features classic Thai dishes such as: Pad Thai, a combination of rice noodles, egg, bean sprout, scallion, crushed peanut and cilantro ($12); and Spicy Basil, a combination of sauteed onion, pepper, zucchini and mushrooms featuring spicy sauce and fresh basil ($12).
Bangkok Pavilion also offers an extensive list of curries and house specialties, featuring an assortment of seafood and duck dishes.
The restaurant's interior has been redesigned and spruced up, as staff said there's been fresh paint on the walls and new table clothes. Small fresh flowers brighten up the tables.
Bangkok Pavilion is open for lunch on Monday to Saturday, from 11:30 a.m. - 3 p.m., and open for dinners Monday to Saturday, 4:30 p.m. - 10 p.m.
All diners are invited to bring their own beer or wine, as the restaurant is still awaiting its official liquor license.
