Thai Express to launch new ‘kitchen’ format in Edinburgh’s St James Quarter


Thai street food restaurant Thai Express is to open a site at the St James Quarter in Edinburgh. It will be taking 2,600 square foot at Leith St Eats and bringing a new format – ‘Thai Express Kitchen.’

The concept will be a new format for the 350-strong Thai group designed to cater to the evening trade. It will have an open kitchen allowing customers to see the chefs at work as well as ‘one of a kind’ double decker seating, a hanging garden, and a 12-meter mural.

Managing director Sachin Pattani said, “We are eager to open our doors to the public. We have really pushed to boat on the design.

“As well as extending our food and drink offering with exciting twists on your traditional Thai classics, St James is the perfect setting to unveil our new concept.”

It will join Five Guys, Tortilla Maki & Ramen, Ka Pho, Black Sheep, Bross Bagels, Salerno  Pizza, Bonnie & Wild, Sushi Samba and Pho at St James Quarter.
