In 2001 our company started as a small market selling fresh island produce and Asian
grocery products. We had a kitchen at the back of the store and one day a customer
asked about the wonderful aroma of Thai cooking being prepared by my wife and asked
if we would sell the food. A year later our first restaurant Bangkok Chef was born. Today
Bangkok Chef has five locations serving the communities of Nuuanu, Manoa, Iwilei,
Ewa Beach, and Moiliili.
Many people think that all Thai food is spicy—which is a misconception. At Bangkok
Chef we believe some dishes need a hint of spice to be enjoyed—it just depends on
the dish. We ask our customers to always refer to our menu or to simply ask if they
are not sure. We believe everyone will find something they love on our diverse menu.
For the past 15 years Bangkok Chef has been committed to serving Thai food that’s
fresh, simple and delicious. We have been recognized and rewarded by the community
by winning Hawaii’s Best awards and the Honolulu Hale Aina awards in the past few
years. It is our mission to bring Thai food into the mainstream of local island
cuisine--so we look forward to sharing the love of Thai food with you at any of our
five locations. Thank you.
