Thai Taste Review: October 2017
Passionate about Thailand’s food, people and culture, the brands founders worked with Thai chefs in Thailand, so that they could offer you a range of premium products delivered direct to your door, where you can create your own authentic Thai tastiness. Another plus is that their products have no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives and do not add MSG.
An awesome Thai Taste promise is that a percentage from every product sold is donated to the Duang Prateep foundation which supports Thailand’s vulnerable communities and poverty-stricken people. Founded and located in the slums of Bangkok, in 1978 by an ambitious slum dweller Prateep Hata, the Duang Prateep foundation meaning ‘Flame of Hope’, delivers education, happiness and hope to those in need.
Kabuto Vegetarian Noodles Review: September 2017
Kabuto noodles founder Crispin Busk travelled around Australia and Asia and started working within the food industry in his late twenties. Crispin’s venture into the entrepreneurial world has been a mixed journey. 15,000 noodles pots, no customers and with a pregnant wife, Crispin had to take matters into his own hands, by scouting London’s independent retailers to stock his products. From launching his products into Harvey Nicks and throughout several countries worldwide, Crispin continues to see growth and is excited about what the future holds.
Chaophraya Restaurant Review: January 2017
Chaophraya pronounced “chow – pry – a” is named after a river in Thailand formed by the confluence of the Nan and Ping Rivers; flows southward past Bangkok and empties into the Gulf of Thailand. I and my plus one boarded the long-tail Thai boat known as Ruea Hang Yao for an adventure of a life time and ready to seek out foodie Thai treasures in the heart of Manchester city centre. The moment that you step through the doors the attention to detail has clearly been thoroughly thought out and the restaurant interiors offer opulent surroundings boasting a mixture of standard and sunken seating on two full floors with ornate lighting features and authentic Thai statues.
