The owners of the Thai restaurant Spinningfields Thaikhun announced the opening of a new restaurant at the Trafford Center.
Thaikhun Street Restaurant will open on Monday, September 27, and will be the first of its kind to offer a buffet of Thai street food to its customers.
Main menus will vary daily and feature Thai classics, such as Pad Thai Soup, Lamb Massaman, and Khao Soi Gai.

Owner Kim Kaewkraikhot said, “At our first buffet restaurant of its kind, we will give guests the freedom to make the experience their own by choosing exactly what they want and at their own pace.
“We are passionate about delivering an excellent quality experience with a combination of first class food and unmatched customer service.
“Thaikhun means ‘Your Thai’, which reflects the team’s goal of taking guests on their own journey around the world to Khao San Road.
“Every recipe on the menu can be found at real Thai street vendors and it is with these authentic touches that we aim to give our customers a taste of Thailand, helping them fall in love with the food, everything like we did.
“Although the menu consists of a few favorites, we are delighted to bring an exciting new twist to Thai cuisine, with the ability for our guests to enjoy a variety of different dishes and flavors with each visit.”
Traditional Thai decor will be featured throughout the restaurant, including tuk tuk tables, boat seats, and even a Buddhist shrine that staff and guests alike can adore.
The 144-seat restaurant will also have a fully-equipped dessert station including a chocolate fountain, ice cream machine, popcorn machine and granita machine.
Kim adds, “Our attitude is completely focused on creating a fun and inclusive environment for our guests to enjoy great food, and the Trafford Center will be no exception.
“We look forward to having a new clientele joining our Thaikhun journey.”
The restaurant will officially open on Monday with a blessing from the Thai monk – an important Buddhist tradition that brings good luck, purification, peace and prosperity.
The restaurant will also partner with the food app Too Good to Go, to fight food waste in the city. Customers will be able to pre-order and pick up a “magic bag” containing food that would otherwise have gone to waste.
Thaikhun Street is located at the Trafford Center and will be open seven days a week, serving lunch, dinner and drinks.
