FAIRFIELD — Family-owned Bangkok Paradise offers delicious Thai cuisine that aims to please the whole family.
Tui Ko, whose father Pti Ko is the owner, understands that sometimes people are not a fan of broccoli or maybe have food allergies and need to adjust their meals.
“Everything is made to order,” Tui Ko said. “Some people are picky eaters and we understand.”
Because nothing is prepared in advance, each meal is freshly cooked and can be easily adapted to the needs and desires of the guest.
The family was originally located in San Francisco, but with the cost of rent rising, they decided it would be better to find accommodation with more affordable housing.
“We decided to concentrate our restaurant in Fairfield,” the young Ko said.
They opened in 2011 at 3344 N. Texas St., Suite A, and have amassed a huge following over the years.
Bangkok Paradise offers meals on site or to take away.
“We try to get the food out quickly, like within 10 minutes,” Tui Ko said.
Covid has been hard on them as they have seen many employees leave while closed – just as many businesses have had to – and they have not returned.
“At that time, it was tough. You opened and then had to close,” Tui Ko said. “It got to the point where it was just my mom, dad and I working together.”
But things returned to some semblance of normal and they hired new employees and saw old ones return.
Tui Ko said he noticed that many people still didn’t dine at the restaurant and he missed seeing them and chatting with regular customers.
As for plans for the future, the family will just take it day by day, Tui Ko said.
“Every time we started making plans, things changed,” he said.
The family will just be delighted to see everyone again and will continue to bring wonderful Thai cuisine to Fairfield, he said.
