Thaikhun to launch second site in Scotland

Thaikhun, the Thai street-food-inspired restaurant group, is to open its second site in Scotland, in the new Silverburn shopping centre extension in Glasgow.

The 3,337 sq ft unit will follow from the company's launch in Union Square, Aberdeen, and will be its fifth UK site overall.

It will join many other casual dining units within the £20m, 100,000 sq ft dining and leisure expansion, including Carluccio's, Chimichanga, Cosmo, Zizzi, TGI Friday's and Five Guys. The development is owned by Hammerson.

Ian Leigh, group operations director at Thaikhun, explained that the new site had been launched following the Aberdeen location, which had "exceeded all expectations".

He said: "The support and customer loyalty has been truly overwhelming. Still in its infancy as a brand, Thaikhun offers customers a casual yet exciting dining experience. Our vision is to bring a real taste of Thailand's ‘street food scene' to the people of Glasgow."

A concept launched by the Thai Leisure Group, which is also behind Thai restaurant group Chaophraya and Liverpool site Yee Rah, Thaikhun has also announced a new location at the Intu Metrocentre in Gateshead, set to open in spring 2016. It currently has venues in Oxford, Cambridge, and Manchester as well as Aberdeen.
