“I hope people will know more and more about us, even for next year. We are spreading the word that we’re open.”

Supanat, who has gone home nearly every year for the last 10 years, hopes to return to Thailand again when the coronavirus pandemic is over.

The Thai restaurant cooks everything fresh and it is possible to take food away. Please see Saengtong Thai’s Facebook page for more.
