Muang Thai – giving a classic Thai dishes some modern twist
Muang Thai has been around for many years now and actually was a furniture shop then. But now, they transformed into a restaurant business which focuses on serving authentic Thai food. Now on its new management, they ensure that they serve quality food for those who love such cuisine.
I was recently invited to try some of their dishes here in Malakas St. in Quezon City. They have enough parking space in the area.
A warm greeting on a neon sign.
It’s visible that the place was renovated making it look more quaint. Modern furniture with some wooden touches surely made it more relaxing. I appreciated that this place was well-lit, too. I mean, look at that lights.
The managing Director Regina Romero was able to experience the cuisine in Thailand and made sure to offer it to the Filipinos as is. She wanted to introduce the classic cuisine with a modern twist.
