The new Thaiku promises more authentic Thai cuisine. In fact, according General Manager Unchalee "O" Ayucharoen:
At the mai (new) Thaiku, we're offering an authentic experience with food and culture that people would have to fly to Thailand for or go to a Thai family's house to taste.
There is also a mini version of Thaiku's celebrated apothecary bar, Fu Kun Wu. And according to the press release, the mostly women-run kitchen is led by chef Anne Sawvalak, who was born and bred in Bangkok.
Thaiku quietly opened last night, with no more bells and whistles than a simple Facebook message that read: "Pssst.. We're open now." The restaurant is open 7 days a week with happy hour and weekend lunch service starting the week of February 25.
