There’s a tasty new Thai food restaurant in town and the owners hope the food will make you happy.
That’s the reason behind the name, Happiness Thai Restaurant, which opened on Aug. 22. It’s now serving up deliciously fresh and authentic Thai dishes at 107-535 Main St. They also offer 10 highly sippable flavours of bubble tea.
“We serve original Thai food, the taste is a little bit spicy and sour,” said co-owner Nongyao Kongsaensee, adding the Drunken noodles dish, also known as Pad Khee Mao, is most popular so far.
Another in-demand dish is the Pad Thai, which customers can order with either the traditional sauce or house sauce. It’s made with ketchup, giving it a savory, tomato flavour, she added.
Nongyao’s husband, Teeraphong Kongsaensee, said he was working at another Thai restaurant for eight years when he said the location went up for sale and they decided to buy it. He said his family owns a business in Thailand.
Nongyao said she got her restaurant experience from seven years working at Tim Hortons.
“I learned everything from Tim Hortons,” she said. “How to manage, how to keep everything clean and how to control the temperature and food safety — everything.”
A point of pride is that all the dishes come gluten-free, except the stir fry, said Nongyao, because they found people were requesting gluten-free often.
“We care about the customers’ request,” she added. “Customers are happy!”
