A True Taste of Thailand

The Thai Smile Bistro has grown from an ambition to offer truly authentic Thai food in pleasant and relaxed surroundings. Sue Evers the owner was born in Phitsanulok, Northern Thailand, but later lived in Bangkok, the capital.  She built up a landscaping business with over 50 employees and had major clients, including the Royal Bank of Thailand. She also ran a guest house for tourists, which is how she met her husband Andrew, with whom she eventually moved to Harrogate.  She gained her ambition to provide proper Thai food, having observed the sweet charades posing as Thai food in many restaurants.  She worked in a number of different restaurants, doing every job until she felt confident that she could apply her knowledge to produce the real taste that Thai recognise, in a commercially viable setting.  It is a paying hobby, an artisan affair.  The Thai Smile Bistro has a niche following, mainly of travellers who have ventured away from the touristy areas.

A very warm welcome from all of us here at Thai Smile Bistro. We are a small restaurant that has opened on Eastborough only a short walk to the beach if you should want to stretch your legs after your meal.

Thai Smile Bistro has grown from a desire by the owner Sue Evers to start a small restaurant selling quality Thai food at reasonable prices. Sue’s wish is to introduce the true taste of Thailand to as many people as possible
