Koh Thai Tapas will open its third Hampshire site, its 11th in total, later this month in Romsey.
The announcement of the 80-cover restaurant, opening 28 July, follows just weeks after the brand launched its Koh Noi concept in Winchester, and a 12th site is expected to open later in the year.
The restaurant will feature the hand-painted murals, fretwork and wooden bars seen in its other venues. It will serve its popular cocktails, as well as pork ribs; a ‘Jungle Curry' featuring a thin sauce with Thai herbs, green peppercorns and red chillies; and crispy squid.
The opening is part of the brand's target to have 40 sites opened or in the pipeline by 2021.
