Koh Thai Tapas group announces new Koh Noi sites

Thai tapas group Koh Thai Tapas (KTT) is to open its new Koh Noi Thai Tapas (KNTT) bar concept in at least two new locations after the successful launch of its first site.

The opening last month, in Poole in Dorset, aimed to introduce the concept of informal Thai tapas food and friendly, efficient service, to residential areas.

As well as a bar it also operates a takeaway service, which the group has said is designed to make ordering an "enjoyable experience". The company today also confirmed that it was negotiating deals for four new sites.

The aim is to take 40-50 cover restaurants and transform them into a bar-takeaway, for a high-turnover service.

Dishes include 24-hour-cooked ribs, mussels wrapped in bacon, grilled pork, prawn toast, duck and cucumber rolls, noodle or rice stir fry, chilli vegetables and Thai-style potatoes. Dish prices range from £3 to £8.

The group already operates five restaurants under its Koh Thai Tapas brand, including in Bath, Boscombe, Southsea and Bristol, plus a travelling Koi Lounge that sets up on beaches around the country.

The restaurants offer Thai-style tapas too, but with the addition of dim sum, salads and curries, and runs deals such as a quick "business lunch".

A statement for the company confirmed: "The customer response to the new concept has been phenomenal. We have substantially exceeded expectations. We can now confirm that we plan to roll out these smaller restaurants behind our present expansion plans."
