Setting its roots in the site formerly occupied by Aberdeen’s renowned heritage pub The Monkey House, the restaurant will accommodate 160 diners and create 40 full and part-time jobs, with the majority of hires being from the city.
The fine dining restaurant pays homage to its roots with opulent interior reminiscent of modern Thai design, whilst complementing the historical interior of the Union Terrace building, originally built in 1855.
Speaking of the launch TLG’s managing director, Ian Leigh says: “The demand for upmarket dining in Aberdeen is booming, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring the first Chaophraya site in two years to this beautiful city. Following the unprecedented success of our Thaikhun restaurant, we’re looking forward to offering Chaophraya’s aspirational dining experience to people we know love Thai food, at its best.
“For me, Chaophraya provides the perfect backdrop for occasions and celebrations, whilst still being completely accessible to everyone. This premium dining experience, combined with the exclusive
launch of our new menu, is sure to wow the people of Aberdeen and we look forward to opening our doors on 29 July.”
