The History of Honolulu’s Favorite Thai Food Restaurant , Honolulu, Hawaii

In 2001, a shopper walked into her favorite Honolulu Asian grocer and smelled something delicious. She inquired about the aroma wafting from the back kitchen, finding that it was the store owner’s wife preparing authentic Thai food. After smelling that savory yet sweet aroma, she knew she had to try some of the cuisine for herself. Thus, Bangkok Chef was born, and quickly became a hit among locals and tourists alike. Today, the restaurant has locations in Nuuanu, Ilwilei, Manoa, Moiliili, and Ewa Beach.
