Thai restaurant group Busaba Eathai is to open its 11th restaurant on Kingston Riverside, in Kingston-upon-Thames, Surrey.
The 135-cover site is set to open in June, and will serve the usual menu but also include new dishes such as Isaan grilled pork and summer salads, plus new desserts including mango sticky rice and sweet plantain fritters.
Developed by executive chef Jude Sangsida, after his recent visit to Thailand, the new dishes have also been trialled at the Busaba Eathai pop-up at street food site Fairground, Haggerston, London.
The restaurant's interior will feature the usual dark wood benches with teak tables, plus a lounge bar serving cocktails and small plates, and a 30-seat riverside terrace.
The new opening has been accompanied by the street food van "Busaba Streethai", which was created as part of the local Create in Kingston design festival, and will serve examples of the new restaurant menu as part of the Kingston Night Market, on 15 May.
It serves a wide selection of Thai-inspired dishes, including salads, wok noodles, sir-fries, curries, grilled meats and rice.
