Thai Leisure Group to invest £1m into Chaophraya and Thaikhun Restaurant Chain

Chaophraya in Newcastle

The York based business is ploughing the investment into its Chaophraya and Thaikhun restaurants over the coming months, with plans to upgrade both the interior and exterior of at least five of its restaurants.

The firm has six Chaophraya restaurants across the UK, at Aberdeen, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Newcastle, and nine Thaikhun Street Food eateries at Aberdeen, Bath, Cambridge, Glasgow, Silverburn, Manchester, Gateshead Metrocentre, Oxford, Southampton. Every Chaophraya site will be refurbished over the next three years, with the Newcastle site in Eldon Square set to be the first to receive a makeover.

Managing director at Thai Leisure Group, Ian Leigh, said: “At Thai Leisure Group, we pride ourselves on constantly innovating and developing our offering, which is why we’ve remained the UK’s biggest Thai restaurant chain. This significant investment will elevate the dining experience even further for guests, allowing customers to enjoy a greater range of Thai cuisine in a comfortable and aesthetic environment. We are excited to unveil the refurbishment works taking place across several of our core restaurants, and look forward to welcoming new and returning customers over the coming months.”
